The Towanda correspondent of the Elmira

regard to the approaching dramatic enter

"The handsomest lady in Towanda takes

prospectus of the New York Tribune , which

forty years the Tribune has been a great
power for good in* this country, and it never
was a better paper than it is now, and never
wielded a greater influence in favor of the
right in politics, as well as morals, than it
does to-day. We commend it to every family
as a paper that cannot be read without profli.

We are surprised and gratified at the evi
dence of thrift and large business which a
visit to JAMES MCCABE'S store furnishes. IT
will be remembered that Mr. McC. closed
out his stock about a year ago, with the in
tention of retiring from trade, but his numer
ous customers, in town and out. prevailed
upon him to continue, and with an entirely
fresh stock of family groceries, he opened a
store in Mercur Block, late last sping. His
old customers, and many new ones, were not
slow in finding him out , and his establishment
now presents the appearance of a bee-hive.
He buys for cash, and never keeps inferior
goods; is frank and honest in his dealings, so
that the poorest child in town is treated wi.li
the same respect and courtesy, ami receives
the same quality of goods that the richest inau
would. It is no wonder that such a dealer
is always crowded with customers.

There is but one time in the year when di
rer, ors can adopt a new series of text books
for the schools under their charge, or change
old ones, and that is between the time of
electing teachers and the opening of the
schools. Section 26, Act of M; y 1.1854, says :
"That immediately after tin; annual election
of teachers in each school district of the state,
and la-fere the opening of the schools for the
ensuing term, there shall be a meeting of the
d'eaoors or controllers and teachers of each
district; at which meeting the directors or
controllers shall decide upon a series of school
books, in the different branches to be taught
during the ensuing school year; which books,
and no other, shall be used in the schools of
the district during said period."
Such is the law, with this exception, that
books cannot now be changed more frequent
ly than once in three years.
