In one Congressional district of Utah,
polygamy was the issue. Brigham H.
Roberts, the Democratic nominee, is a
Mormon, and the Republican papers
charged him with being an unrecon
structed polygamist, alleging that two
of his wives had presented him with
heirs within a few days of each other,
one installment consisting of twins.
They accused him of being a law break
er, who should be in prison instead of
in politics. No political cartoon was
complete unless it showed the twins
and their nursing bottles, with promi
nent local politicians dancing attend
ance in the background. Neither Mr.
Roberts nor any of his supporters at
tempted to deny the charges.
THE Spanish flagship, Maria Teresa,
which Sampson's fleet sunk before San
tiago, July 3d, which Lieut. Hobson
raised at a cost of $500,000, and which
was being towed to Norfolk, Va. by the
ships Vulcan and Merritt, sunk during
a furious storm, Nov 1, off the Baha
ma inlands. The crew of 114 men were
rescued by the Merritt and landed at
Charleston. S. C.
THE reported sinking ot the transport
Panama was a mistake, resulting from
the recovery of pieces of wreck with the
name "Panama" upon them. The
vessel arrived at Havana last Thursday
morning, and left an hour or two after
for New York. Mrs. Dalzell of Pitts
burg received word from her husband,
as did also Mr. Dalzell's partners.
To the Voters of Butler County.
I desire, by this method, to express
my sincere thanks to my many Demo
cratic and Republican friends for the
expression of their confidence in me, by
their vote, and, although defeated, 1
will ever hold their kindness in grateful
remembrance I feel more compliment
ed as the Democratic nomination, for
Assembly, come to me unexpected, and

perfection that the Controller of all good
has meant them to become and also the
• speaker admonished the teachers to be
' come more and more like the Divine
i Teacher. '
I Mr. R. R. Glenn responded to the
, address of welcome, Mr. Glenn is a
| fluent speaker and handled his subject
| very well. Miss Wilda P.rown gave a
j very instructive talk upon the subject
of music in our schools, saying that
j music should be taught to children in
I all grades and gave a very good outline
on the board, the way in which to in- j
struct or teach beginners in music.
Rev. McClintock was to speak about
the ' Ideal Teacher but owing to his
absence Rev. Cooper and Mr. Campbel j
discussed the same subject. We are very j
thankful to Rev. Cooper for his words
of encouragement and his faithfulness
in attending teachers institutes. Mr.
Campbell brought out the good idea
that all teachers should possess the
power of concentration of all their fac
ilites upon a given subject.
Mr. Halstead gave a very instruct
ive talk, in stating his manner and
method of teaching history also Mr
Irvin spoke very fluently upon the
same subject and he insisted on the
teaching of history- he said the child
should be taught to love his country and
be fillea with that patriotism that all
loyal Americans desire and possess.
Miss Id* Heginbothain prepared pa
per on physiology in which she insisted
that the subject should have the great
est care and attention of the teacher.
Miss Bertha Montgomery recited a
recitation entitled "The Trail of the
Miss Lepley deserves credit for the in
terest she displayed in the institute.
The programme of music she prepared
deserves praise for all present united in
saying that the music couldn't have
been better, We all appreciate her
kind manner and modest way in lusti
The essays, declamations and recita
tions prepared and preformed by the
school were a credit to the pupils and
teacher. The following pupils recited
Myrtle Hay. Katie Overheim, Jennie
McCalt, Sadie Pfabe and others.
Institutes are a great benefit to the
teachers and scholars in fact every
body seemed to enjoy themselves so well
that the teachers appointed the nest in

Mr Montgomery thanked the audience
for their kindness and then adjourned
