Tuesday, Dec. 23.—Visited the following
schools and teachers of Rome district: Morley
Hill, F. Beloud, teacher, pupils registered 10,
present 14; Village, Emma Chambcrlin,
teacher, registered 17, present 14; Union,
Chas. Allis,'teacher, registered 30, present3o;
also Rome Borough, W. H. Brown, teacher,
registered 51. present 40; Mycrsburg school,
Wysox, O. Tanner, teacher. All the schools
seem to be succeeding well. F. Beloud,
though teaching his first term, is well liked by
the pupils, and is thorough and progressive.
Heard fine grammar class in Village school.
Noticed fine colored wall maps in Myers
burg school, drawn by pupils, and prepara
tion for the same in Union school. The
Borough and Village schools are only a few
rods apart, and should be united and graded.
The townshipand the borough mightcaeh pay
its own ,teacher as at present, and then have
all the advantages of a graded school.
Mr. Brown, though an excellent teacher,
cannot do all that is necessary with so large a
school, and advanced classes.
If Xmas day on Thursday be,
A windy winter ye shall see;
Windy weather in each week.
And hard tempests, strong and thick;
The summer shall be good and dry.
Corn and basts shall multiply;
That year is good for lands to till;
Kings and princes shall die by skill;
If a child born that day shall be,
Tt shall happen right well for he;
Of deeds he shall be good and stable,
Wise of speech and reasonable,
Whoso that day goes thieving about,
He shall be punished without doubt;
And if sickness that day betide.
It shall quickly from thee glide.
