TELEPHONE. —Some time since our towns
man J. .1. (fUFKiTHs, sales agent of the Loyal
Sock Coal Co., was presented with a telephone,
and recently the instrument has been put up
connecting the residences of Hon. JOSEPH
PATTON and Mr. GRIFFITHS. The arrange
ment proves so satisfactory and conveni
ent that the families would not have it remov
ed on any account. The expense of the •
telephone is quite trilling, the whole cost in- |
strunient and putting in. does not exceed $5. !
We have no doubt they will soon come into j
general use to connect offices, stores. Are.. [
We do not know who she is, but we thank
the lady who having seen an article she want- j
ed, advertised in the REVIEW, mentioned the ■
fact to the denier when she called to make ;
the purchase. Many of our merchant princes |
think the REIMEW too small and insignieant j
to bestow any prntronngc upon, but those I
who have favored u* with their patronage j
know that it does pay to advertise. If all our
readers would follow the example of the lady j
referred to above, it would result in great i
benefit to us.

There is but one time in the year when di
! rectors 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
i electing teachers and the opening of the
j schools. Section 23, Act of M. y 1.1804. says:
" That immediately after the annual election
of teachers in each school district of the state,
and be fere the opening of the schools for the
| ensuing term, there shall be a meeting of the
| directors or controllers and teachers of each
district; at which meeting the directors or
j controllers shall decide upon a series of school
books, in the different branches to be taught
during the ensuing school year; which book*,
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 frcquent
| Iv than once in three years.
