to curtail operations during the summer and

possible to get logs out of the woods. Indeed
with the exception of those which were "skid

out. The water mills, without an exception,
have been frozen up since the middle of De

TO THE TEACHERS OP BRADFORD CO.
ELfe? —lt is proposed to hold a Teacher's Institute of
one week's duration before the opening of tile Summer
Schools. Teachers feeling an interest iu the couse of ed
ucation, their own improvement, and the elevation of their
profession, are respectfully invited to attend. The County
Superintendent will procure the services of able and expe
rienecd Teachers for the occasion, so that Teachers at
tending need be to very little expense, aside from board,
which can lie oiitaincd upon reasonable terms.
Teacher's Institutes have been held in many counties of
the St ite within the past year, with the most beneficial
results. To one county two hundred dollars were appro
priated to defray the expense of holding ail Institute one
week. In adjoining States Institutes are regularly held
and are considered very efficient means tor advancing the
interests of the cause of education by Common Schools.
We hope the teachers of Bradford will not he tar behind
in this matter. Those who will attend are desired to for
ward their names to the subscriber before the 2<th inst.,
or as soon as possible. Notice will be given of the time
and place of holding the Institute, when a sufficient num
ber signify their desire to attend.
