The -following brief; practicaVand
cOndensed rules for the management
of grapes were given by Dr. Whiting
at the Farmer's institute, recently
held at Saginaw, Michigan :-.
,'The soil best suited for the grape_
is decomposing shale,. but any good
clay soil thoroughly drained will do.
The ground should be, carefully
prepared and only well-rotted manure

best fertilizers ; when it can be ob

the grindstone is to the axe, education is
to the mind, a means to sharpness. A.
little more than this may be title when
we apply it to the mind, for the very pro ,

The office was createdby Act of Assem
bly May S, 15544 and was first -filled by
Emanuel Guyer. At the time the citizens
were very much opposed to the office, so
Mr. Guyer soon found business in band,
that required earnestness and perfever
once to stand the storm of opposition to
the new order of things. lie was assailed
on every hand as though he were the ma-.
ker and executor of the law. The news
papers of the county 'were open to attacks,
but, notwithstanding this and the written
and oral communications which were
nearly - always present with him, ho prov
ed to be master of the situation. Lectures
`were delivered by him in all parts of the
county, so that by the end of his term he
had so completely : destroyed the opposi
tiim to the (Are, that the people were well
prepared to receive the labors of such a
straightfot4Ord disciplinarian as Prof: . C.
li. Coburn, who was elected to succeed
him. We feel safe in saying that
the mass of teachers in the county have
never been better prepared for work in
the school room, than they were at the
close of Prof. Coburn's second term in
isif3. T 1 County Institutes, held by
him, were i:dconduCted as to make a last
ing impression on all in attend:an&
The pruning knife was not spared at
the Teachers' Examinations under his
care, as it has been.since, on many occa
sions. Sirce 1503, there has been much
good work 'done, but - we -fear there has
been too much flexibility manifested as to
the gnalitication of the teachers. In many
Leases personal appeals,. by friends mid re
latives, have been heavy weights in. 'ob
taining certificates. The good of our
schools does not allow such arguments to
control. When Mr. Guyer was elected,
there were 32K seho‘ds in the county 3,,dur
ing his term, the number was increased
to 305,. making an addition of 40 ; since
then the number .has been increased to
'oo. We now have an average, 11-12
mouths of 'schools per‘year, instead of 41i,
as reported in 1555.
All of our County Superintendents have
been faithful workers at the meetings of
the Bradford County Teachers' .Associa
tioM but after AIL that has been 'done,
there is niuch work that is very much
needed to be .done: School visitation, by
-parents and directors is shamefully neg
lected in nearly every school district ; our
schools need more thorough grading and
supervision and teachers need awakening
to the idea of more thorough prepftration
for their alfng.
We feel confident that our new Super
,intendent will be alive to these wants, and
will do, t4.hthe utmost, what he can for
imr educational interests but it is not
expected that any man can do all that is
desired without any aid, therefOre it. be
comes the duty of every' friend of the
cause of educational advancement to help
wherever • there is an opportunity. We
arc satisfied; from what is commonly-ex
pressed, that the patrons of our schools,
ate looking for an' upward stride in edu-
Cational interests: Let the' work begin
with vigor :fled continue until the system
is filled with renewed life.
