Burnsides bond on the ground that it was too late the statute requiring it to be made on the first Monday in Janu ary The report created quite a and the parties mentioned and county attorney Owsley went to Stan ford to con er with Judge Saufley We understand that he advised the clerk to accept the bond if the parties sign ing it were good and there was no question about that The bond had been signed several days and the Judge had neglected to offer it to the clerk It is said that Judge Saufley said that there is a conflict between the constitution and the law requiring the bond to be made on the first Monday that no one could declare the office vacant without proper legal proceed ings in which the question would be involved and that he could hold un der his old bond until another had been given Whether or not we have been correctly informed pn these opin ions he is still county judge and is likely to remain so unless a vacancy occurs by death or resignation All sorts of rumors were afloat the ran high but the storm has subsi ded and a calm prevails over the troubled waters We do not object to the use of all proper means to secure an election by either party but we do doubt the of removing men who have been elected and qualified on mere technicalities It is true that the bond should have been filed sooner but it does not seem that this alone should disqualify the officer

about there being no raid ers in Garrard when the turnpike question first came up The chopping down of all the gates on one side of the county in a single night however shut us that line with the quick ness and firmness of a steel trap Since then we have only hoped for the best and the raid of Saturday night was no surprise at all Reasoning with a man who will destroy private property has about the snme effect as the pouring of water on a ducks back The raiders believe they have a grievance and you might as well sing psalms to a dead horse as try to argue them out of it We believe that some satisfactory or deals will eventually be made with the pike companies but until that is done and the pikes are set people may expect trouble and probably serious trouble We do not believe in making mountains out hills but by constantly adding to the mole hill it will surely grow in to either a mountain or a mighty hilL While the pike companies and raiders have grievances it would be well to remember that our lawloving people also have one and that is the bad name which these raids give the county Those interested should put forth every effort within reason to bring about an amicable settlement of this matter and thus put a stop to the disgraceful conduct indulged in by the raiders We do not mean to say that property should be sold for less than its value not by any means but where theres a will theres a way and the court and the pike companies should put their heads together and that way The people are sick and tired of this question TnE Womans Rights element is making a

a great deal of discussion on the of trustees their qualifications their duties and their relation to the teacher In fact hardly an educa tional meeting of any prominence has been held in the last twelve months that some phase of the question has not been up for consideration This certainly shows that the sul ject thought to be an important one and when it is remembered that of directors or trustees bad judgment in employing teachers or by bumpering and handicapping good ones whom they happen to se cure may seriously damage or even ruin a school then it will bo realize 1 that tha question is one of tremendous importance Board members themselves are be ginning to see that they do not their duty and so in the most progressive sections they are organ izing and having periodic meetings in order to exchange ideas and learn their duties wore fully For them to speak of their own shortcoming and failures should have more weight than for a teacher to speak of them therefore I shall give some of the things said sonic of the positions taken and some of the conclusions arrived at in several of these meetings The question was raised as to how much education a board member should have One side took the posi tion that a fine education was if not a least a very desirable thing And there was much reason in the arguments adduced- It was claimed that a man of only ORDINARY education cannot have a proper conception of education in its broadest and most complete sense that he can not appreciate or see the educational value of certain plans or methods or appliances and so will think that the progressive teacher who deviates from the oldtime way is extravagant unpractical or cranky and consequently such men will be opposed to all new departures espec ially those that call for the expendi ture of and a teacher with such a board will find himself so han dicapped that he cannot with the times Therefore a board ought to be well up especially on pedagogy The other side admitted that there was a good deal of truth in this roason ing but they took the position that it would be better if board members sense plain practical business men so they could attend to the financial af fairs of the school and let the teacher attend to the others In support of this the argument was made that in nearly all cases where there has been a clash between teacher and board be cause of the boards alleged interfer ence in matters that belong to the teacher the trouble has been caused by some member who thinks HIMSELF better educated than the teacher and therefore thinks the teacher should follow nis advice in short he thinks he ought to be grand dictator It was further claimed that men who cause this trouble are usually men who have taught a little themselves and think that they know all that is to be known about the business This naturally leads to the next is the true rtlation between a board and the superinten dent or principal In order to answer this question a prominent arose and said that the audience should for the time being imagine themselves newly elected superintendents and principals and he would imagine him self to be the chairman of the board employing them He then set forth in a very clear and forcible speech the duties of the board on the and the duties of the teachers on the otherThe whole speech is brim full of common sense and I would like to quote it in full but it alone would make about two columns so I must be content to give a few extracts We employ you to take charge of our school to organize and manage it We will manage the business or part of it but the professional part we turn over to you entirely and we shall not trespass upon your terri rights and your preroga tives We shall not attempt or pre sume to do your work or dictate to you how it should be done You are supposed to know more about the bus iness than we do for we are farmers merchants lawyers and so on we havent time to read educational papers or works on pedogogy and will not presume to know as much about teaching when we dont read educational literature as you do when you make it your constant study It is not unusual for a young trustee who perhaps has had a little in teaching to try to force his opinions on a teacher who is his sen ior and who has had perhaps three times the experience and knows ten times as much about the business One of the most unfortunate things that can befall a school is to have a trustee thinks he knows more than the teacher who is supremely anxious to make the people think he knows more and who is so jealous and envious that he is all the time trying to the reputation of the teacher in every way he can We trust we have no one who will do these things We regard the teach er as king in his province His duties are entirely ours There nwdb no tafiiblfe to tell whore one lc Ca j i I Jf i byexercising y necessityat money keepabreast tI 1 6 mon questionWhat mana boardmember oneside toryyour lessen r

to the teaciCr great ciurtesy After the address was finished there was a gonerabdiscussion which showed that all liqartily endorsed position of ilu speaker And also a great many questions were asked some of which Ill give together with the answers Would a member of the board have a right to ask a teacher to suspend work to give him the member a chance to make a talk or to read to the pupils Answer No no more than a stock holder of a bank would have to step in and say to the cashier You may Ill attend to this busi ness and you can imagine how that would strike any selfrcspecting cash ier In other words a member of a board unauthorised by the board in its organized capacity has no more authority than any other citizen in the county A similar answer was given when it was asked whether a director had a right to take charge of a class with out invitation from the teacher or even to ask questions without asking permission o the teacher Another question asked was this Suppose a brother or a cousin or any relative of the principal should be teaching with him and suppose this relative should see some one guilty of misconduct and should tell the and the principal should act on that testimony suppose then that the board should say to the principal We think best for you not to use the tes timony of your relative for people will think that you will believe your relative before any one else and so might not do justice to the pupil wouldnt that be a reflection on the truthfulness of the relative or on the judgment and fairness of the princi pal his ability to rise above preju dice and to do justrcj Answer Yes any construction you can put on it will be a reflection oa either the principal or the relative and the board that does that is very great discourtesy- All these

in innocent fun ended in the massacre of all the 4 sportsmen Was there ever a better illustration of what was true then true now that that which is cent may be made destructive At this season of the year the dub houses of our towns and cities sire in full play 1 have found out that tlusifl is a legitimate and an illegitimate use of the club house In the one case it may become a healthful rcrreation like the contest of the 24 men in tc other case it becomes the massacre of body mind and soul as in the CUK of these contestants of the text when they lund gone too far with their sport All intelligent ages have had their gatherings for political social autistic literary purposes gatherings charac terised by the blunt old AngloSaxon designation of club If you have read history you know that there was a Kings Head club a J5en Johnson club a Brothers club to which ItolSngbroke belonged a Literary club which Unrke and Gold smith and Johnson anti ISoswell made immortal a Jacobin club a Benjamin Fraaklin Junto club Some of these to indicate justice some to favor the arts sonic promote good manners shine to despoil the habits sonic to de stroy the soul If one will write an honest history of the clubs of England Ireland Scotland France anti the Uni ted States for the lust 100 years lie will write the history of the world Time elub was an institution horn on Knglish soil hut it has thrived well in American atmosphere Who shall toll how many belong to that kind of club where men put purses together and open house apportioning the expense and servants anti room and having a sort of domestic establish uncut a style of clubhouse which in my opinion is far better than the ordinary hotel or boarding house Hut my ject now is to speak of dub houses a different sort such as the Cosmos or Chevy Chase or Lincoln clubs of this capital or the Union Leagues of MUt ttity lni t club of London the Lotos of NOW York where journalists dramatists painters and artists from all gather together to discuss newspapers theaters and elaborate art like the Americus which camps out in summer time dimpling the pool with its hook and arousing tile forest with its stag hunt like the Century has its large group of ven erable lawyers and poets like the Army and Navy club where those who engaged in warlike sercifn mice on the land or time sea now como to gether to talk over thedaysof carnage like the New York Yarht club with its floating palaces of beauty uphols tered with velvet and paneled with ebony having all the advantages of electric hell anti of gaslight and of kings pantry one pleasure boat cost 83000 another another 30000 another Srtr000 the fleet of pleasure boats belonging to the club having cost over S000000 like the Ameiican Jockey club to which belong men who have a passionate fondness for horses fine horses as had Job when in the scriptures he gives us a sketch of that king of the arch of its neck tile nervousness of its foot the its gait the whirlwind of its power out Hast thou clothed his neck with thunder The glory of his nostrils is terrible he paweth in the valley and rejoiccth in his strength he saith among the trumpets ha ha and he smelleth the battle afar of the thunder of the captains and the shouting like the Travelers club the Blossom club the Palette club the Commercial club the Liberal club the Stable Gang club time Amateur Boat club and gambling clubs the wine clubs the clubs of all sizes the clubs of all morals clubs as good as good can be and clubs as bad as bad can be clubs innumerable the day they arc comparatively lazy places Here and there an aged man reading a newspaper or an employe dusting a sofa or a clerk writing up the accounts but when the curtain of the night falls on time natural day then time curtain of the club house hoists for the entertainment Let us hasten up now the marble stairs What an hallway See here arc parlors on the side with time upolstery of time Kremlin and the Tuilleries and here are dining halls that challenge you to mention any luxury that they cannot afford and here are galleries with sculpture and painting and and drawings from the best artists Cropsey and Bier stadt and and Hart and Gifford pictures for every mood whether you are impassioned or placid shipwreck or sunlight over the sea Sheridans ride or the noon day party of the farmers under the trees foaming deer pursued by the hounds in the Adirondacks or the sheep on time lawn On this side there are reading rooms where you find all and magazines On that side there is a library where you find all books from hermeneutics to the fairy tale Coming in and out there are gen tlemen some of whom stay ten others stay many hours Some of these are from luxuriant homes and they have excused themselves for a while from the domestic circle that they may enjoy the larger sociability of the club house They arc from dis membered households and they have a plain lodging somewhere but they come to this club room to

know an instance where a wife thought her husband was giving too many nights to Chris tian service fsljari table service 1o prayer meetings nnd to religion eon vocation She systematically decoyed him

thousands of houses in time cities being daubed to death There are club houses where membership always involves domestic shipwreck Tell me that u man has joined a certain club tell me nothing more

Here are six secular nights in the week What shall I do with them1 the father and the husband 1 give four of those nights to the improvement and entertainment of my family either at home or in good neighborhood I will devote one to charitable institutions I will devote one to the club I congratulate you Here is a man who says I will make u different division of the six nights I will take three for time club and three for other purposes I tremble Here is a man who says Out of the six secrlar nights of the week I will devote live to the and QUO to the home which night I will spend in scowling like a March squall wishing I was out spending it as I had spent time other flee mans obituary is written Not one out often thousand that ever gets so far on time wrong road ever stops Gradually his health will fail through late hours and through too much stimulus lIe will be firstrate prey for erysipelas and rheumatism of the heart The doctor coming in will nt a glance see it is not only present disease he must fight but years of fast living The clergyman for the sake of the feelings of the family on the funeral lay will only talk in religious generalities The men who got his yacht in the eternal rapids will not be at the obse quies They will have pressing en gagements that day They will send flowers to the coffinlid and send their wives to utter words of sympathy but they will have engagements elsewhere They never come lIving me mallet and chisel and I the tombstone that mans epitaph Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord No you that would not be appropriate Let me die time death of the righteous and let my last end be like His No you say that would not be appropriate Then give me the mallet and chisel and I will cut an honest epitaph Here lies the victim of a dissipating club house I think that damage is often lone by by the scions of some aristocratic family who belong to one of these dissipating club houses People coming up from humbler classes feel it an honor to belong to the same club forgetting the fact that many of the sons and grandsons of the large commercial establishments of the last generation are now as to mind imbecile as to body diseased as to morals rotten They would have got through their property long ago if they had had full possession of it but the wily ancestors who earned the money by hard knocks foresaw how it was to be and they tied up everything time will Now there is nothing of that unworthy descendant but his grand which feel honored to lash fast that wormeaten tug though it drags them straight into the Breakers Another test by which you can find whether your club is legitimate or il legitimate the effect it has on your secular occupation I can understand how through such an institution man can reach commercial success I know some men have formed their best busi relations through such channel If the club has advantaged you ia an honorable calling itis a club But has your credit failed Are
