' COMMON SCHOOLS.
Extracts from the Amami Report of the Saperio
; tenderit of Tioga Co.
The work done by.-the superintend
ent is indicated by the statistics we
glean . from instruction of teachers,
from visiting schools and from the an
mat report of the directors. It is rath
er a work of co-operation with director 4
• and teachers than the exereise of any
authority. As the servant and friend
of both, we, consider it our duty to go
with the teacher into the school room,
and iaiggest the best modes of teaching
and governing according to the experi
ence f the most successful teachers.
As we would help and not embarass the
teachers, we are quite sure iwe havt
•learuPti as much from them as we has'.
taught them. WP freely accord togood
teachers a great diversity of modes.-
OUr instructions cannot be carried out
as successfully hy one teacher as anotli s
•Of But when a teadlier settles down toi
any one, mode without any efferts at
improvement it is time for that teache
to quit the profession. This indifferent
dreamy life in the school room, is what
sends the teachers like tramping jour
neymen, to whip the cat from one
school house to another.
. Visitations and examinations have
reqUired a ride of o‘:er one Jhousand
mites during the nine months of our
connection with the schools. About
two-thirds of thi schools - have been
visited. We hope' to see the rest of
• the schools this winter in the northern
and western districts of the -county.—
Forty-four public examinations have
been held, and about the same number
. of private examinations, which will
- hereafter be more than ever discour
The County Institute c lied twice
during the year, was alt gether too
thinly attended, the teachers not feel
ing either able or obliged to attend. If
..thenioney now appropriated to paylec
turerscould be appropriated to pay, in
part, the expenses of teachers, they
could be compelled to attend.
SCHOLAR-S.—Delmar has the largest
number of salads and scholarti of- •any
district inthe County. Charleston comes
next. Ail the reports are not yet in
for . this year, blthe number of schol
ars in all the pu lie schools of thereouns
ty will not vary much from 9,800, hard-'
ly reaching 10,000 district school schol
ars in actual attendance. We estimate ,
the number of children in the Acade
mies and private schools at 800, and
those whogn to no schools and receive
no book education at 700. This is an
alarming amount of ignorance, which
is educated vice, growing up in our
county. Let us now look at the
EXPENDITURES FOR OUR SCHOOLS.—
We shall give only round numbers:
Cost of Instruction $37,000 ; cost of
building and repairing school houses
$9,000. Fuel and contingences $6,,000,
mal4ing a total of $52,000. Of this
amdunt about $3,600 was received from
the State appropriation, and the bal
ance raised by taxation upon all the
taxable property in the county. This
has required'an average assessment by
the school directors, of about nineteen
mills per dollar valuation, for school
and' building purposes. Taking the
average attendance and we find it costs
about 83 Centsper - month to educate
each scholar In the district schools. This
price though equal only to two dollars
a term for private tuition (a smaller
sum than is generally charged for the
lowest grade in private schools) is for
actual instruction given all the time
_ charged, given alike to a-b-c-d-arians
and in such higher branchers as His
Itory, Algebra and Geometry, and low
tas-it is, is yet full one r third higher than
It would be if we could Secure a more
Uniform attendance of the scholars; foi
it costs just a. 9 much (30 educate ten a
ft, does forty. This irregular attendance
and dropping off toward the close of
the term, Is a great evil in our schools
And again, if the facts could all be ob
tamed, we should find that, while tin
property of this county is paying abou.
$60,000 for educating nearly 10,000schol
ars; it Costs the county, more than thi:
to take care of the 700 children growing
up without education. \ •
• And again we love to think of the at
most sublime spectacle of a people voi
untarily imposing such a tax upon
themselves for l 'the education of the,
neighbors' children equally .withthet.
own. The only thing lacking in thi
part of the machinery is a unifori.
State tax to keep all the Common
Schools open at least four months.--
Then the rich and the poor districts in
all part of the State would fare alike,
and practically, Instead of theoretically,
the property of the State would edu
cate the children in the 'State. Tiog
would not have to raise a 4.x of 19 mills
to the dollar, while Bradford raises a
tax of 12, Lancaster 8, and 13erks only
Band Chester less than six, while thost
wealthier counties with less than one
third one -tax, can keep their school
open nearly. twice as long, and pad
twice as much wages to their teachers.
(to. be continued.) .
We have a record of a colloquy be
tween a gentleman and his son, both
lawyers, the father having retired
easy circumstances to a cotibtry-plaef
some ten miles away from the scene of
his professional labors. One Sunday
morning the young gentleman, home
ward bound, met his father and mother
on their way - to the church where they
regularly attended. The father said :
son, lam delighted, and so is
your dear mother, that you are going to
hear our good man preach. You will
be highly pleased with him."
While the conversation was going on,
a tall friend of the son came up, and
familiarly addressing him by his chris
tian name, said, before the father :
"I have got the bar open, so that we
can have brandy-and-water whenever
we want it."
The Mend, observing the solemn
countenance of the father, beat a hasty
retreat. When he was gone, the father
put up his hands and said :
"My son, I could not have believed
this of you! Look at your poor mother,
and observe how she feels your:wicked
After a minute of dead silence, the
father said :
"Who Is that bad companion of
" Well, father, If I must tell you, be
is my best silent, and the richest man
The old gentleman thereupon slapp
ed hie son on the.shoulder and said :
" Stick to him; my son ; stick to him,
and never leave him!"

The American Cooking Stove.
AFTER- twenty years experience in the man
ufacture ol stoves, we became convinced,
some six years' since, that ,a vast amount of
money was being expended by tlo people,of this
country, in baying cheap and wo thless Acres, a
large portion of which was w 1 OA; and that
true economy consisted in buyin the best stoves '
that could be made, notwithsta ding the price
was higher. With this view o proceeded to
construct the American Cooking Stove, and
,no pains or expense to make : it the best
and most perfect stove that could be made. And
we have ,experimented with it, and carefully
watched its operation for the last six years,
when an improvement sugeested itself, we have
at once adopted it, and we have several of these
improvements secured by letters patent. In
this manner we do not hesitate to say, we have
brought it to a higher state of perfection than
has heretofore been attained in cooking stoves.
The recent improvements in this stove has
added largely to its convenience and effective
ness. In all the varieties of stoves wo manu
facture, we study uSofalness, durability, conve
nience and economy in operation, rather than
cheapness in price, and in so doing we are satis
fied we study-Ole interest of those: purchasing
our stoves. SHEAR, PACKARD, & CO.,
