As the period has eomo for the
usual summer disorders so fatal to chil
dren, timely attention should be given
to the fact that these and many other
diseases, such as fevers and diphtheria,
may be caused by drinking impure
water. Dr. Richardson, the eminent
English authority on hygiene, says,
that "a large number of diseases form
erly supposed to be due to some occult
and unremovable cause are due to the
consumption of impure water." Peo
ple forced to drink water from creeks
known to have received dangerous
polluting matter are told by some
BCientbts that the water is purified by
irrigation and downward filtration dur
ing its flow and the organic matter ox
idized. But it is obvious, as an inves
tigator of water impurities forcibly
puts it, that "living matter does not
get oxidized by flowing down a stream
any more than a fish," and people who
have to use water from a well should
see that no surface water drain% into it,
and should be particular to empty
their dish and wash water at such a
distance from the well that it can not
possibly run into it or filter through
the ground to it. The heavy rains
that we have had of late make these
practices particularly dangerous. If
you bav~ any doubts regarding the
purity of your drinking water, boil and
cool it before using.

Farmers who leased heir coa
lands in the northern part of Butler
county in the years 18fi3 and 1864 to
Messrs. Kyle, Niblock and Breuin,
will find it to their interest to confer
with J. C. Vanderlin, attorney at But
ler, in regard to their leases. There
is a covenant in these leases to pay
yearly rentals, so many years alter a
railroad was built on or near the lands
leased, one year after a demand. Fail
ing to make these payments as stipu
lated for within the year was to be
considered an abandonment of the
lease. There are now several year's
rental duo on these leases and farmers
wishing to get rid of the lease must
make a demand on the company, Mer
cer mining and manufacturing, now
owning the leases, by himself or his
attorney. The party of the 2nd part
in the lease failing to pay within the
year, is a breach of covenant, which
taken advantage of, the Court on pro
per application will strike off the lease.
Mr. Vanderlin has been employed by
quite a number of the farmers to ex
ainiue their leases,make this demand—
and if possible have them stricken
frotp the record, and if there are others
who have not yet taken action in the
matter either to secure the payment
of the money due or to have their
leases given forfeited, they should
apply to Mr. Vanderlin at once.

For the benefit of our patrons who may
contemplate planting grape vines during the
coining season, we copy the following from
<'Julwin's Jt'irat Wiirl'l. of St. Louis, Mo., in
relation to his famous white grape, which is of
especial interest, coining, a* it does from the
originator of the "Martha" grape :
FniKSD CoLMAN :—We have heard so
much about the two New White Grapes of the
North. Niagara a«» 4 focklington, that our
cariosity was greatly aiousbd- The hitter we
have growing, but the former it soems was not
to be had for love or money, Now ; however,
since reading Campbell's comparison made
at Boston, we foel as well without the Niagara,
lie says: "Bunches larger than the illustra
tions, an<! weighing more than a pound. Much
the largest and most altrt*ctiV'» wh'tp ijrape of
native origin yet introduced, throwing thb
Niagara, which were exhibited beside it, entire
ly in the shade."
Last Friday I received from Rochester, a
small basket of Pocklington in most excellent
condition, and nothing lor a long time afforded
us more pleasure, Although the fruit was
taken from vines planted only twenty-nine
months ago, and the vines left to overbear, for
the purpose of ascertaining what they could
do, some of the bunches weighed over half
a pound, and some of the berries measured
almost one inab in diijmeter. In quality, it is,
to my taste, just about good enough, ft is
somewhat like the Martha, but less foxy and
We learn that the originator, sent four shoots
to an exhibition—The American I'omological
meeting, in Boston, Sept. I*Bl, and they were
taken from young vines exposud on the trellis
the previous winter to 34 degrees below zero—
with three bunches on each, and the twelve
bunches weighed eleven pounds. This has
probably never been done before by an Ameri
can grape. A peculiarity about it is tl-at many
of the smaller berries have but a .inglu scud,
while the average is but two, the largest ber
ries usually three, and in one I found four.
The seeds lire small for so large a grape.
Here Is nearly all rich, sweet, buttery matter,
instead of good part of berry being composed
of seed. If my judgment is correct, fourteen
pounds of those grapes will make a gallon of
wine, and it will make good wine without
doubt. It, will, however, be some years be
fore much winu will bu made out of it, for it
will be in too great demand for the table.
While Martha has done nobly—and
thousands of acres are planted with it—and I
need not be ashamed of having originated it—l
now resign and give the palm to slr. I'ockling
ton. It is a strong grower, and looks a;
hualthy as any vine I ever saw. 1 have no
vines lor sale, therefore no aie to grind, bqt
simply write this so those who intend to plai.t
should not fail to plant it. It is a most beauti
ful fruit. The seed can be seen if the berry be
held between the light and one's eye.
I have had the fruit since last Friday, (Oct.
28th), and this eveninga hunch of it is freih and
sound. This, «l't?r traveling a thousand miles

i the schools of Butler county lor the school year
; ending June l>t I^2.
I Twenty-three regular and six special exam-
I illations were held during the year. 1 hey
j were mostly written; and yet we think the oral
! method has some advantages worthy of consid
eration. Of the two methods, perhaps, the
written is the more satisfactory to the appli
cants. All members of the class having the
same list of questions furnishes a means of as
certaining the relative qualifications oi appli
cants as wc'l as determining their individual
mental siatus. In addition, the manuscripts
Icin be filed for reference if necessary. For tie
I oral method this, at least, may be said : 1 lie

Onr teachers are generally conscientious and

njgreater inducements than .he profession of

many are found .vho ma'ce noth.ng but te.:t
b K>k preparations, teach nothing but what the
text book in hand contains and ba ely pats ex
amination. This fault, if it may be called
such, is, perhaps, the dregs of the old system
which prevailed in the school-room before our
public schools had advanced in general culture'
as far as they have done in laue.- years—There
are a few others who fail to accomplish any
thing for lack of that discipline. <.vsteniatio ar

Eleven new houses were bu'lt duri - g the
year and a few of the old ones enlarged or
otherwise repaired. Tne new building are all
frame except one, wbicu is bricic; all are of
sufficient sue for present purposes, are well
lighted and, with a few exception better locat
ed than many of the old ones. Better means of
ventilation than that of lowering ihe upper
sashes of the windows is needed to tecure proper
temperature and pure air. Most of the school
houses have some play ground, but only a lew
have grounds of sulfibient size and a very few
have grounds enclosed. The directors of Ceu
treville built a two storv house ooutaiaing four
rooms, three of which are in use. The school
has been graded, and, instead of two schools as
heretofore, three were in ope aiion during the
year. The fact that all the new houses bu-lt
during the year, and a goodly number of the
old ones, were seated with iinpioved patent
furniture indicates progre. ' in that d : rection at
least. Much of the old style furniture in use
is most certainly injurious to the proper physi.
cal development of the pupils. Dusks and
seats are too high and 100 far apart. To use
them, especially for wring, requires au un
natural and injurious position of the body.
But few schools are well supplied with ap
paratus. Soroe lie ve been pretty well supplied,
but for want of care aud a an'.table place to
keep it, much of it is comparatively worthless.
There ought to be in every school-room a book
cas<- so constructed that globes, maps, charts
and other apparatus could be stored when not
in use. Many houses are extremely deficient
in quality If not In quantity of black-board
surface. Whether board or plaster it should
be large enough to accommodate a class o'class
medium size, and, by all means, should have a
slated surface instead of ordinary IdaeK paint
so frequently used. It may not be the province
of teacher to oall attention to thb»e deficiencies,
but that it is the'r right to do so isobv'ous, and
I am inclined to think that if teachers would
call the atteution of directors to them, they
would be promptly remedied.
Whether or not directors havo the right to
furnish text books with the public funds, seems
to be an unsettled question. However, two of
our Boards did it and find it a matter of
economy as well as a very great aid to the
teacher iu classifying his school and to the
pupils in their advancement- Want of uni.
formity and of bool.s suited to the capacities of
the pupils is a hindrance to prog.-ess in some
districts. Directors in these dist lets would
find It advantageous to their toliool to adopt a

work in'the school-room and of elevating pub
lic s&ntiment in favor of better schools the eili.
oiency of the annual institute is not questioned.
During each session time was given the teach

an active part.—Those to whom duties were

held by the teachers from eight to nine, A. M.

Since its consolidation with the New York
Krming Pout, has increased its facilities in
every department, enlarged its size twenty
four pages, and added many able writers to its
previous list, it is now pronounced by many
of its readers to lie better than ever before.
Established in 18"5, the Nation was a pioneer
in this country as a weekly journal of literary
and political criticism of the highest order, con
ducted free from the control of party or inter
est of«ny sort. Despite a precarious support
during the first few years, it held persistently
to its original aim until its financial success
was assured. Meanwhile it had become a rec
ognized authority at borne and abroad; its edi
torial management has been unchanged from
the first, ami it* projectors intend that, with
their present facilities, the Nation shall become
more than ever before the medium of the ablest
thought of the time.
The form and style of the paper are chosen
with ft view to the most suita'de shape for
binding, an<l a set of the Xalion preserved,
bound, and indexed, makes the mont complete
and ri-adablc record of current events of impor
tance in the political and literary world avail
able for tho America publio.
