the -commercial centres of the, East and

the original WlLnuft's Eureka Mower

firm name,lToiranda Eureka Mower Co.,
is retained. This cOmitination brings the
whole business of manufacturing the di-„

The Company are now become full own

manufacture of Eureka Mowers. This
Mtitver deserves more than a passing no

Monday evening Although laboring under
the disadvantages of a severe old, and
excessive fatigue, having spolOn four
times the previous day, he was liStened to
with the 'most intense and enthusiastic at

in, and been witness to the horrors of that
shameful reproach to modern civilization,
Libby Prison, gave peculiar interest to
his narrative:
The fine art of the speaker was' evinced
in the power with which -his iniinical'de

that he was retraciUg a pathway through

Ti : The time to elect our next County
Superintemleht is &timing nigh. and as
yen are the persons in whose power it is
to say whom we shall.have, do not pass it
by as of no importance, as I am •afraid
'Many of you may do. Try and inform
yourselves of the duties of the office;
what its needs are; and also what has
been done in past years; and then every
one turn out to the election. Po not suf
fer even one of your number to stay at
home;'_thereby allowing a few to have
their undisputed "say."
We need some one who will give his
whole mind and time to the work; some
one who will raise the standard of educa
tion in our county, and give it life and
vigor; some one that will carefully look
after the teachers,- encourage them, and
help them by showing 0101111°w to teach;
which might be done by visiting the
schools. and at the yearly 'lnstitutes. • -
We need some one that will work with
and'for the teachers l as a teaches should
for his scholars. Thefe are plenty of such
mot in the county; he sure and have one
of them for our next Superintendent. As
one of the teachers . of Bradford county, I
I feel that there is yet chance for great
improvement 'in the Superintendent's
work. And lam confident that I feel
just as a great many other teachers do.
