Annual Report of tho County Super
intendent of Common Schools of Ju
. .. niata County, for tho Tear ending
' Juno '2, 1S73. '
In Btilmitting my first Annual Report
I sLall be brief. The Common School
system is firmly established and work
ing well in this county. . . , ,
. si:hool houses and grounds
Four new school houses were built
.1 J
during the past year, viz : one in Green
wood, one in Fayette, one in Ceale, and
one in Spruce 11 ill. , They cost abont
$1,000 each, are good substantial houses,
well lighted, well ventillated, famished
witli suitable furniture, and sufficient
blackboard, surface ; but three of them
are without porticoes and sufficient
grouuds. .The nitiety four houses in the
county ; sixty-five are frame ; nineteen.
brick or stone, and tun, log.. Twenty-
eight are unfit for use, , and thirty , are
badly ventillated . Thirty-one have suit
able, and sixty-three, injurious furniture.
Forty are without out houses buildings
w hich the common decencies of life de
mand, and which should be erected at
once. jNo improvement was made on
school grounds ; only four are fenced.
1 hey are, with few exceptions, too small,
and in a good many cases badly located.
No schools are well supplied with ap
paratus, and thirty have none worth men
tioning. Outline miips are to be found
in seventy five schools, globes in eight,
reading and spelling charts in nearly all,
astronomical charts in eight, and black-
boards in all, but Some of them are en
tirely too small, or in such a bad condi
tion that they are unfit for use.. The
schools of Fermanagh were snpplied with
outline maps last fall, those of Tutbett,
with Webster's Unabridged Dictionaries,
and their old -and worn out maps were
replaced with new ones.
One hundred and two schools were
nppn duting the past year.' Thirteen
more are needed. " Three schools were
kejt open seven mouths; eighl, six1
months ; six, four months,1 and all the
others five months. 'They were attend
ed by over four thousand pupils. The
number studying reading was 3 320;
writing, 3,050 ; -mental arithmetic, 2,1 SO ;
written arithmetic, 1,902; geography,
1,343; grammar, G50 ; history, 170;
algebra, 44 ; composition, 2S, and mu
sic. US. Inese htrures snow a sad ne
glect of arithmetic, geography, grammar,
history, and tha higher branches in our
schools, and that the greater number of
the children of the county are receiving
a very limited and imperfect education,
which' arises from the uidifTtrciice of pa
rents, pupils and teachers. Sixty schools
were well classified, and the books found
uniform in seventy two. ' A very impor
tant part of the duty of directors is to
adopt and enforce the use of a uniform
series of books. There are a few schools
in which much of the teachers' time is
wasted every session on account of the
different kinds cf books in use. The
Bible was read in ninety-eight schools.
About sixty Sabbath Schools are open
during the summer. They are produc
tive of much good. The County Sab
bath School Convention was held at Mif-
flintown. May 27th and 28tb, 1873. It
was well attended.
Fourteen public, two special, and four
private examinations were held. One
hundred and twenty applicants were ex
amined, and one hundred and ten provi
sional certificates granted. Ten appli
cants were rejected. Two professional
certificates were issued in the winter.
Fifty-fonr directors and about two hun
dred citizens attended the examinations.
One hundred and eight teachers sixty-seven
malo, and forty-one female
were employed. Forty-two have taught
more than five years. Twenty had no
experience - Kinety-six have read works
on teaching, and the majority are waders
of the Pennsylvania School Journals or
some other educational publications.
Seven have attended and two have grad
uated at a State Normal School. Very
few expect to make teaching a perma
nent business, and every year some of
the most active leave the ranks to engage
in other pursuits ? and it can not be ex
pected to be otherwise until the length of
this school term is increased, and tne sal
aries of teachers are considerably ad
vanced. We have many good earnest
teachers, who discharge their duties very
acceptably to their patrons. : i:
.- . -!r; VISITS. ' - '
i All the schools were visited twice ex
cept five, which were closed before my
second visit ;' a few were visited ' three
times. ' Two hundred and seventeen visits
were made of an average length of two
hours each. Fbrty-eeven directors ac
companied "me and one" hundred and
twenty-one citizens ; were met "in the
scnools.' Progress in most of the schools
waB very good, in some middling, and in
a few poor. Attendance was very irreg
nlar. In some'districta the percentage is
very, very low j in not a hn schools as
low as 50 per cent.. This should not be
so, and I hope in future to be able to re
port far ; better attendance. ': Parents
should make a great effort tot have tbeir
children regularly at sc&Bol'. Hundreds
of children in Jauiata county are being
robbed of the advantages of an educa
tion. It is the great privilege of every
child to be educated, and it is robbery to
deprive a child of that privilege. ;,
The County j. Institute convened at
I'erryeville, Nov. 25,1872, and was in
session fire days. Tho attendance of
teachers,. directors, and citizens was very
large. The Institute was a derided suc
cess. AU the lectures and discussions
were interesting and instructive- ;; The
instructors and lecturers were Dr. J. H.
Shumaker, of Cbambersburg, Pa., Prof.
F. A. Allen, of Mansfield, Pa., Dr. D. D.
Stone, of Tuscarora Academy, this coun
ty. Prof. II. I. Gourley, of Pittsburgh,
Pa., Prof. Q. W. Lloyd, aud Profs. Wil
son and Patterson, of Airy View Acad
emy, Perryeville. . The County Institute
was attended ami highly appreciated by
all our progressive teachers. Two local
institutes were held, , one at McAlister
ville, and one at East Waterford. A
number of, educational meetings were
The Tuscarora Academy, located at
Academia, was founded in 1836 . . The
buildings are large and commodious, and
the school has been in a prosperous con
dition ever since it was established. The
present principals are D. D. Stone, A. M.
Ph. D , and J. J. Patterson, A.Jf:
The Tuscararo Female Seminary, lo
cated at the same place, is under the care
of Ilcv. J. P, Sheiman, A. M , Princi
pal. The buildings are good and plea
sautly situated. ,
The Juniata Normal School, at Thomp
sontown, is under the direction of A.
Harman, P. E.. , The school is doing a
good work.
The McCoysville Iligh School, taught
by Mr. Thomas Iluggart, supplies a want
in that locality. ,.
, ..The Airy view Academy was founded
in the year 1S52, by Pavid Wilson, A.
M, with whom A. J.-Patterson, A.M.,
is now associated. Their buildings are
new and well suited for their purpose
Tho school is well patronized. .
- The Soldiers' Orphan School is loca
ted at McAlistervillo. It is giving a good
education to hundreds of the children of
the brave men who perished in their
country's defence. . .
, A number of private schools, taught
by common school teachers,' are open iu
the summer. ,
Our wants are the common ones exist
ing everywhere, and so often mentioned
in reports. They are : more competent
teachers ; longer school terms ; higher
salaries ; better school houses and furni-,
ture ;' regularity of attendance ; less
prejudice and indifference; a higher esti
mate of the value and importance of ed
ucation ; more interest on the part of
parents, directors and teachers ; a uni
formity aud full supply of books ; dis
trict institutes and libraries, and closer
supervision of schools.
We have many good directors, who do
all they cati to improve our schools. Sev
eral boards are subscribers to the School
Considering all things, great progress
has been made in the county since the
establishment of the Common School
System, and the Superintendency, and
especially under the administration of
the late Superintendent, Mr. G. W.
Lloyd, who labored earnestly, diligently
and successfully to promote cause cf
common school education in this county
My thanks are due. to the press for
services rendered, and to the directors,
citizens and teachers for aid and hospi
tality extended to me in the discharge of
my official duties. , .

Girls'. Boots and Slices.
One evening, at Lexington, I- waa dis
cussing before the'assembled school the
subject of shoes for women, and had
been remarking that the soles were , uni
formly too narrow, when Miss B Spoke
up : '
"Why, Doctor, my soles are perfectly
immense. VV by, tney are twice as broad
as my foot." :" ': - ' - "
"Miss V , will yon be kind enough to
take off one of your shoes,' and send it
forward V It was cheerfully and quick
ly done. '
'Henry, please bring the rule ! ' Now
we will meaenre this sole.
"Miss B , I find this sole is two and
one half inches wide; do you think your
foot is narrower than that 1" ;
"Oh ! a great deal. That shoe sole is
twice as wide as my foot "
"Miss B., will you please come to the
platform a moment t ' So, limping along
one shoe off and one shoe on, she pre
sented herself.
"Miss B , will you be kind enough to
put your foot upon that sheet of white
paper ? Now hold up your other foot,
and let your full weight press upon this
one. There, now, hold still a minute,
and let me draw the pencil around your
foot. There that will do. Now we will
measure this mark. and see just how
broad your foot is. Why, Miss B,I
find that your foot is three inches aud
three-quarters broad ; no, stop, it is
three inches and seven-eighths ; no,
stop again, it really is four inches broad
Now what do you think ? You may
take the rule aud measure yourself if you
doubt it. The sole is two inches
and a half, and your foot is four inches
broad I"
"But, doctor, it is four inches broad
only when it id spread out by standing
my whole weight on this one foot."
"Yes, Miss B., but that is exactly
what takes place every time you step.
This shoe sole, which you think is im
mense, is two inches and a half wide.
Now what do you suppose becomes of
the iuch and a half of foot which has no
sole to rest upon 1 Either the upper
leather holds the font, aud prevents it
spreading, or the foot spreads . on either
side beyond the sole, aud presses down
upon the edge of the sole.
"Very few girls walk iu a firm, strong
way. Notice one. You can see that ehe
is balancing upoti a narrow sole. ,, There
is an unsteadiness, a side wise- vibration.
Besides, as ehe has not breadth of toe
enough, she cannot push . her body for
ward in that elastic way which we all so
much admire.
"Again, the pressure of the upper
leather checks the circulation in the foot
and makes it cold. If you check the
circulation in any part, it becomes cold
The tight shoes, with an elastic woru
about the leg just below the knee, so
check the circulation iu the foot, that the
great majority of girls have cold feet.
It would, indeed, be rare to find oue with
warm feet like a boy."
- Miss B. took her shoe and limped back
to her se it quite crest fal Km. Now a
dozers girls eagerly put up their hands.
Six or eihi other girls insisted on hav
ing their shoes and feet measured, but
among them all we did not find oue that
had less than an inch and a quarter of
foot not matched by tho sole.
, Miss S., a quiet, earnest girl, rose and
said :
"I have always thought that shoes
should have broad soles, anl I have tried
for years to induce my shoemaker to give
me broad soles. . He always says he will
but he never does. How can a young
lady get broad soles if the shoemaker
wou't make them ? I am sure I should
be glad to have mine as broad as the
widest of my foot, but I cannot get
"Miss S., if I will tell you how to in
duce your shoemaker to make the soles
of your shoes as broad as your feet, will
you try it ?"'
"I will, and should be very thankful
for the suggestion."
"Go to him and say, 'Mr. Smith please
let me put my foot on a sheet of paper,
resting my whole weight upon one foot,
and then, if you please, mark around it
with your pencil.'
"Of course he will do it very cheer
fully. '
,' Indeed, for some purpose, which I am
sure no man can explain, shoemakers are
quite in the habit of taking the size and
shape of the foot.
' 'Then say to Mr. Smith, 'Please meas
ure that aud tell me just how wide if is '
. . "Mr. Smith measures. . You look on.
He finds that the wiihh is exactly three
inches and seven-eighths. -; ;
" 'But,' he will say, 'Miss S , what is
all this fort' ;
"No matter. Now, Mr. Smith,, will
you make the sole's of this pair as broad
as my feet? .' ...
"Certainly, Miss 8 , 1 will make them
all nice and broad.'
. "'Mr. Smith, please make the soles as
broad as my feet this time.'
" 'Why, certainly. Miss, what is the
trouble? - I will give thera to you-real
nice and wide '
, .." 'You always tell me so ; but when
theytome home, they are always those
little narrow ones.' ' ,
" 'Miss S., you shouldn't say so. I
always make tho soles of my shoes very
broad. It will be all right. You needn't
worry about that.'
" 'Well, Mr. Smith, yon need not send
these shoes to me ; I will come for them".
The width of my foot is three inches aud
seven-eighths. Very well ; when I come
for these shoes, I shall measure the width
of the soles; if they are one-eighth of
an inch less than three inches and seven-
eightbs, I will not touch them.'
"That struggle is all over. Mr. Smith
will, for the first time in his life, keep his
broad-sole promise."
Besides the advantages I have named,
broad soles are much handsomer than
narrow ones. They make the foot small
er If one puts his foot into a hoo too
short, and too narrow, aud the toes and
sides of the foot press out all around over
the sole, it makes the foot look big ; but
if the sole be large enough to let the fool
rest in its natural relations it looks much
Another advantage may be mentioned
for the benefit of those who .stud v econo
my. Such shoes will not only keep in
f t..i iti.. .
snape, out tney wilt last two or three :
times as long as those with nairow soles.
The uppers, not being stretched, as they
are with narrow soles, will it ot good
stock, almost never wear out, while the
soles will remain square and even.
I have spoken of the advantage of a ;
greatly improved circulation which woald '
result ftom the introduction of the wide j
soles. I may add that the change which i
would at once appear in the manner of
walking would strike every beholder.
The soles of girls' boots aud shoes
should be thick. They are not always
to remain upon carpers, but they must
go out doors and walk on the ground.
Some people seem, somehow, to suppose
that girls do not really step on the
ground, but that, iu some sort of spirit
ual way, they pass along just above the
damp, unclean earth. But, as a matter
of fact, girls do step on the ground jut
like boys. I have frequently walked be
hind them to test this point, and have
noticed that when the ground is soft they
make tracks aud thus demonstrate the
existence of an actual, material body.
Now, whilo this u the case, and while it
is indispensable to their health that they
go much iu the open air, they must have
thick soles. Let these be made of the
hardest and most impervious leather.
During the cold and damp months
they should be made of thick, solid leath
er. No matter about the name ; some
calfskiu is very thin, while morocco is
often very thick. During the warm sea
son they may wear for uppers prunella,
or other cloth.
It need hardly . be Eaid that heels
should be broad, long and low.
Shamolin, Pennsylvania, the Scene.
SnAMOKiN, Pa., June 10. This af
tcrnoon an explosion occurred in the
Henry Clay colliery, operated by the
Philadelphia and Reading Coal and Iron
Company, near the town. The colliery
had not been inspected for some time,
but was always considered safe. Sixty
five men are employed there, aud it has
a capacity of mining 8,000 tons per
Couaid Drawheiser. the iuside boy,
went into the old working or water level
when the explosion immediately follow
ed, it is thought by the fire-damp becom
ing ignited, which communicated with j
the airways from the water level into i
tne slope below wnere me men womea.
i tie men in tn.s section oi u.e coai region
not being accustomed to black-damp,
thought it was blasting-powder that had
been set on fire and remained in the
slope until overcome.
Startling to come up they encountered
a body of after damp and fell senseless,
many immediately smothering. The
strongest men managed io get out, giving
an alarm. The others followed, and on
reaching the top of the slope fell to the
ground, being overcome. John Ilayes,
outside boss, hearing the alarm, imme
diately went to their rescue. After pro
ceeding about 500 yards, fell face down
ward iu a pool of water, and was drown

derers. San Fraxcisco, June 9 Despatches
from Boyle's camp, dated yesterday, re
late the particulars of au attrocious mas
sacre of Modoc prisoners, supposed to
have been perpetrated by O.egou volun
teers. Saturday morning James Fair
child and about a dozen other men left
FairchilJ's ranche, Cottonwood creek,
with seventeen Modoc captives including
women and children, aud Shackuasly
Jim, Bons Charley, Tehee Jack, Potiy
and Little John. The Indians wore in
a wagon drawn by four mules. At the
crossing of Lost river the party encoun
tered a body of Oregon j'cluuteers under
command of Capt. 11 tear. The eoldicrs
gathered about the wagon acd question
ed Fairchild ; the latter told them the
Indians were all Hot Creeks except Lit
tle Johu, aud that there were charges
against them. Fairchild undertook to
push on to Boyle's camp, aud tho volun
teers retired to their camp near Crowley.
Uu the road Fairchild noticed two men
ahead, riding to Rocky Point, as if to
intercept him. Wheu the team approach
ed the two men, one of them presented a
needle gun at Fairchild, saying "get
down you old white headed- !' By
what au'hority said Fairchild 1 'Mine,
I am g"ii g to kill Indians, and you too,'
was the reply of the leader as he caught
hidd of the mules and unhitched them,
cutting the harness. Fairchild, clinging
to the Hues, leaped to tho grouud. Tho
poor wretches implored for mercy, aud
begged Fairchild to save them. Tho
warriors were unarmed, and knew resis
tance waa useless. They were the cool
est in the party, although facing inevita
ble death. Kvery one here condemns
the affair as atrocious and . without ex-
i cuse. I nere is no uouot but tno mur
