HosI'italitv. A lawyer of more than
local repute, G ly name, dwelling and
;ractieing his profession in a city not very
far West, had for a long time suffered the
annoyance of an intolerable bore. Old A
was known to everybody as a grumbling,
meddlesome creature, without grace or mod
esty, who invaded the sanctity of every of
lice in the place, peered into private papers,
always gave his opinion unasked, whoever
might te present, and in brief made a
chronic nuisance of himself. Vexed at last
beyond measure, G determined to give
the party such a thrust as would pierce
even his elephantine JiiJe. Turning bland- j
ly up-in A one afternoon, in the midst of
a half dozen clients, after a series of boor
ish aggravations, the lawyer said :
"My dear Mr. A, you mu-t have no
ticed that my ofF.ee is well arranged for the
purposes for which it was designed. It "
"Oh, yes! I have often noticed that,"
the bore pleasantly interrupted, thinking,
perhaps, that the counselor was about to
express a sense of gratification in having
him there.
"It is warm, shady, well lighted an 1 well
''Yes, yes, an unusually Cue office, Mr.
"And well furnished with chairs, tables,
books and stationery. Then, too, I have an
elegant house up town."
"Yes, indeed," the old fellow chuckled,
rubbing his hands in the charming prospect
of an invitation to dine with the lawyer.
'A beautiful, beautiful houe, Mr. (J, I
have often heard."
"Yes, it is. It has an abundance of
room, gas and water all over it ; it is splen
didly furnished, aui very recherche, as the
French would say."
"I've no djubt of it," softly murmured
the victiai.
"That place cost me ten. thousand dollars,
if it did om cont. I have excellent servants,
mid they sa3' I pise good dinners."
"Ah, yes. Mr. G , I know you do."
"Now, these places, Mr. A , both the
ofSe-i and my house, arc especially intended
for the ue of my friends for their business
and pleasure."
"Yes, Mr.
"For my friends, sir! and," continued
the lawyer, glaring Ceroo'y into the eyes of
the astonished A, and bringing his fist
down thundering!- upon the table, "I don't
want to see you at either place !"
lie never did after that. "-
Ct itnxa. Here is a specimen of the
Rood old fashioned mode of courting as it
was done iu Connecticut. Deacon Marven,
a large landholder and most exemplary man,
accomplished V.is u a business like way :
Having one day mounted his horse with
a sheep skin for a saddle, he rode in front
.of the houso where Ilett'e Ie lived, and
without dismounting, requested Bettie to
come to Liiu. On coming, he told her the
Lord had sent him to marry her. Bottie
replied :
"The Lord's will be done."
The last, rat story is from Chicaga. In a
bouse where the rats bad been very troub
lesome, traps had long been set, but to no
purpose. Finally some of the family uj
tertaiuud to watch the trap. It was cun
ningly set. Soon a young rat appeared and
was about stepping on the fatal soring, when
nn old rat rushed to the rescue, seized the
indiscreet juvenile by the tail arid dragged
him off to the hole.
A husband advertises thus: "My wife
Maria has strayed or been stolen. Whoever
returns her will get his heal broke. As to
trusting her, anybody can do so if thc-y see
fit ; for as I never pay my own debts, it's
not likely I'll pay her n."
Beport of the Superintendent of Clearfield
County, for the Year Ending the 5th. day
of June, 1871 :
The people are slowly but surely
awakening to the great importance of
the common school system. They free
ly admit its claims and cheerfully con
tribute to its support.
New Houses. During the school
year just ended, eleven buildings were
erected, as follows: One in Bell, one
in Brady, one in Burnside, one in Cov
ington, one in Curwensville, one in
Ferguson, one in Karthaus, two in
Lawrence, one in Morris, and cno in
Woodward. They are all large and
commodious frame structures, well sup
plied with good furniture and ample
Llack-boarl surface. Those of Law
rence and Curwensville are furnished
with McFarland's patent desks, which
have rendered entire satisfaction.
New Districts. Two Independent
Districts have been formed. One out
of Tike, called Bridgeport, and the
other out of Lawrence, called West
Clearfield. The Directors are all en
ergetic and intelligent - men ; hence,
will discharge their duties faithfully.
New Legislation. An act to con
solidate the common school property
with that of the Academy, of Clear
field borough, erect largo-and commo
dious buildings, and thoroughly grade
the schools, was passed last winter.
After due reflection we are convinced
this is a step in the right direction.
We trust, therefore, for the good of
all concerned, that such an arrange
ment will be made ; that the consolida
tion, upon trial, w ill prove satisfactory
to nil, and mark a new era in the edu
cational history of Clearfield borough.
OCT-EUILDlxas. A number of
bouses have been, during the year,
provided with the necessary out-buildings,
but much the largest number are
not yet supplied. Will not Directors
see to this important matter?
Teachers. Wc have our full pro
portion of poorly qualified teachers.
Four failed entirely, while others mere
ly "kept school." They have not de
teriorated, but some have failed to keep
pace with the educational improve
ment. It is absolutely necessary that
a portion, at least, become better qual
ified, either by private study, or by at
teinliur soma good school, or quit the
profession. The time has arrived -when
all teachers should be able to discrimi
nate between "keeping" school, and
teaching it ; between bare words and
learning ideas ; between getting a les
son to recite and one to understand ;
between committing rules and teaching
principles. We have some teachers
that are an ornament to the profession;
who go outside and beyond the mere
text-book, and have the children thor
oughly understand what they pretend
to learn.
Graded Schools. In some of the
rural districts the Directors arc agita
ting the subject of gradation ; and
we hope soon to be able to demonstrate,
practically, its superior advantages.
Wo greatly need a more careful classi
fication in many localities, than we
now have, and the best way to accom
plish this is to establish, in some cen
tral position, accessible from all points
of the district or districts, a school of
a higher" grade, to which the most ad
vanced pupils may be admitted. Such
schools could be established at Lnthers-
burg, Burnside, Lumber City, New
Washington, and Glen Hope, with lit
tle or no opposition, and soon other lo
calities would foilow the van ot nn
provement. The increased facilities
which such schools would afford, for
complete and thorough public instruc
tion, would be a stepping stone to a
nobler and higher education.
School Examinations or reviews,
have not been so generally introduced
as was expected. A beginning, how
ever, was made, and we hope the di
rectors will require every teacher in
the county, the coming year, to hold
one at the end of each month. The
chief aim now seems to be to get over
as much ground as possible, regardless
of thoroughness or accuracy. Many
scholars are unable to answer questions
even in the elementary branches,which
clearly proves they have a very super
ficial and imperfect knowledge of the
stu lies passed over. There is no oth
er agency that will promote more thor
oughness and accuracy in recitation,
and excite a greater emulation among
scholars, than frequent public reviews
or examinations. They should not be
gotten up for the occasion, but trie
teac her fhould, in all cases, allow the
directors or a spectator to conduct
them. If being able to tell a thing
and to give a reason is a true evidence
of education, then, I think, it must be
conceded that the theory of public re
views is productive of very important
and substantial benefit.
Directors. Many boards deserve
special credit for what they have done
and are now doing to advance the edu
cational interests of the county. May
they never become wearied in well do
ing, but continue on in this good and
noble work. I feel justified, however,
in enumerating a few mistakes. 1st.
Paying the unqualified the same as the
qualified teacher. Such a course is
paying a premium on ignorance. It !
prevents the live teacher from raising,
and removes the necessity of the illit
erate to make further advancement.
2d. The employment simctimes of in
ferior teachers, because they are rela
tives or friends. However much this
may be practiced throughout the coun
ty, at the present day, in- other avoca
tions directors should never introduce
it into our common schools ; and lie
who does, acts from a base motive, and
should receive the censure of all good
men. It is your duties, as the guardi
ans of the children in your districts, to
employ the very best disciplined minds
to mould and instruct the rising gen
eration, whether relative, friend or foe.
. Course of Study. It affords me
much pleasure to state that the direc
tors of a number of districts, have at
last, consented to adopt a course cf
study, to be used only as an outline
for the teacher's guidance. Much val
uable time lias already been wasted by
allowing children to study,such branch
es only, as their immature minds dicta
ted. In many cases children have re
fused to study more than a single
branch, for several successive terms,
hence all the other fundamental branch
es were neglected. Directors are, to a
greater or less degree, responsible for
the intellectual growth of the children
in their respective communities : there
fore this important subject should re
ceive their special attention. No pro
fession or calling fan be successfully
carried on without a correct method
More Haste Than Progress.
There is an excessive desire on the part
of some pupils, parents, and even some
teachers, for the rifth Reader. In
some cases scholars who should be in
the Third, or at the highest in the
Fourth, were using the fifth ; and when
we suggested that they should be put
into the Third or Fourth, they were
all, sometimes, highly offended. Why
not be displeased, also, with the master
carpenter or stonemason because they
will not put their apprentices upon the
nicest and neatest work until they have
acquired skill in the use of tools? The
same difficulty pertains to other stud
ies, especially arithmetic and geogra
phy. I can see no practical sense or
use for scholars to take the riftl
Reader before they have mastered the
Third or to be helped through arith
metic and geography without a knowl
edge of the first principles. The time
has arrived when the education of chil
dren should be judged ; not by the
number of books passed over or by what
they cannot tell, as is now the case, but
by what they can tell.
District Superintendence.
Whenever and wherever directors have
appointed a practical teacher, or one
who has had a great deal of experience
in visiting schools, it is always attend
ed with beneficial results. There is as
much philosophy, however, in teachers
instructing our merchants how and the
kind of goods to purchase; our silver
smith how to repair watches ; our den
tists how to extract natural or insert
artificial teeth ; our farmers how to til
the soil, &c, as there is in that class
of men to instruct teachers how to
teach, unless they are themselves prac
tical teachers of the- modern school.
A director's visit, in most cases, can
not be of any more practical benefit to
a school than a visit from any other
citizen.. It seem3 to me, therefore,
that the time is at hand when we shoul
have a more thorough district super
vision. This can be accomplished by
the directors appointing a thoroughly
educated teacher, as District Superin
tendent, whose duty it shall be to
visit the schools once a month or often
er ; assist in classification ; course of
study ; best methods of promoting the
progress ot the schools, &c. A Court
ty Superintendent cannot, in this coun
ty, travel over one thousand one bun
dred and ninety square miles and visit
more than once; (it is scarcely possible
tor him to do even this much, devotinjj
the proper time to each,) one hundred
and sixty-one schools in. four months.
Examinations. Twenty-six public
and twelve private examinations were
held. One professional and one hun
dred and fifty-two provisional certicates
were granted and twelve endorsed from
other counties. feeventy directors
and a large number of citizens were
present. They seemed to be interested
not only in the present success of our
schools, but also in the fufts-e welfare
of the rising generation. In some
districts the directors left the schools
immediately after the examination was
over. This was a good plan. It gives
the directors and Superintendent an
opportunity to consult with each other
before making choice of teachers, as
he is familiar with the peculiar wants
of each sub-district, as well as the
special qualifications of each applicant;
and can often jrive valuable sujrjiestions.
He should not dictate, nor yet, for a
moment, should ho hesitate to decide
when called upon.
Visitation. This important duty
was commenced the last week in Octo
ber, and continued until the 1st week
in March. Visited one hundred and
fifty-three schools on an average
spending nearly three hours in each.
Met, in all the different schools,eighty
six directors and one hundred and
twenty-six patrons. Jbeccaria and
Woodward districts did not receive
their due proportion of my time, owing
partly to not having the schools open
at the proper time, and partly to sick
ness in my family.

Gregory, Esq. Fifty-two teachers w ere

teach the coming winter. hatever
progress we have made, during the past
tive years, we are, to more than any
other agency, - indebted to the training
which our teachers have received, an
nually, at the Normal Institute. Our
means for preparing teachers wai be
considerably increased, as soon as the
Lock Haven State Normal School is
in operation. The Superintendent will
then be able to pay more special atten
tion to the schools and the various ed
ucational interests throughout the coun
ty, during the summer season.
County Institute. Our County
Institute convened, at Clearfield, Oc
tober and continued 5J days. It was
well attended and all seemed to mani
fest an interest. The regular instruc
tors were Profs. I. S. Geist, J. Hart,
J. V. Montgomery, and A. D. Itowe,
who delivered lectures and gave in
structions in the yarious branches. A
number of lectures and essays were
had from teachers of the county. Hon.

their mutual sympathy and co-operation.
