GREECE isn't tbe first country that has to pay another for giving 'it a drubbing.______________ THE Pennslyvfcula state treasury has been attacked by the national known as deficit. Same old more money than was received. ME. WANAMAKEE talked like a good populist when he said: "The republican -party is living in its Lin- and Its Grants, tbe ancient democratic party is Hying in its Jeffcraons and Jacksons." WE would not-advise anybody to pin their faith in tbe tariff bill be- coming a law as it-passes the Senate. Many changes are likely to tie made when the bill goes to a conference representing both House and Senate. HARRINGTONS' HooPLAl All aboard for tbe aerial express! Mr. Charles H.

Democratic Slate Ticket; The following brief sketch of .the men nominated by the joint conven- tion of tbe silver forces and which, though containing but two demo- crats, is to be placed upon the of- ficial ballot under the name demo- cratic, for the purpose of preventing those wbo deserted the democratic party from appropriating tho- name and ihns gaining thousands of votes which thoj> would not otherwise get.. Thin notice of the several candidates will prove interesting and servo to introduce them, or those of them who need tm introduction, to the public. HON. r. E. WHITE, The nominee for governor, was born in 1843. He located with his par- ents in Keokuk in 1857, For four years be hired out as a farm band to farmers in the neighborhood, and the greater part of the time in driving oxon to breaking plows, lhatr portion of the state hav- ing just opened up to settlement. In 1861 he enlisted as a private in Company I, Thirteenth Iowa Infan- try, and eerved to the close of the war. Be was under Grant and Sher- FWSPAPFPl man throughout the four years of his enlistment, and went through the Vicksburg and Atlanta cam-! paigns, and was with Sherman on his march to the sea. After the war he returned to Keokuk county and purchased a small tract of land which he grubbed and cleared and since that time has lived on it. He and his sons are now owners of 4GO acres of land. Mr. White has never invested a dollar in any other busi- ness and does not own any other property than his farm. He was married in 1856-and baa four child- ren. Soon after tho war he entered politics, and repeatedly canvassed his county for friends who were can- didates for office, but never allowed his name to bo presented as a can- didate for office, although frequently pressed lo do so, until 1890, when he was nominated for, and elected to congress on democratic ticket from tbe sixth district. He made a brilliant record in congress, deliver- ing two of the most notable speeches of the long session. The first one wafion the tariff question, and more copies of it wero distributed by the democratic nntional committee than of auy other political document of recent -years. His other great speech was on tho naval appropria- tion, and is still used as a tract by tbe international arbitration i society and by those who do not think it longer necessary for civalizcd- nations one of the few national bankers who advocate free coinage of silver at 1G to 1. He seryed five yearb in the war at Forest City al-' most immediately after be was mus- tered out. He 'is accredited to the silver republicans, although ox- chairman Anderson of the populist committee is authority for the state- mentvtlmt it has been the belief in Forest.City for some time that he is a populist.

The Beat Teachers. j No question is more important "to tour state than how to maintain and _____ "v mprovf our schools. Tho growth ot our town and city schools has kept pace with the growth of the statel of (the reasons and means of bis growth can not fail to be fruitful if good results. In most of our owns the boards of directors have. >een chosen .with'reference to par- ticular fitness or interest in school vork. As a result they are nob strictly partisan and arc predisposed ,o look to tho welfare of tho schools, [n these towns tho fitness of ap- plicants for the places to be filled is taken into account and dhangcs ure mado only for urgent reasons. la these schools ono of the very best is to found -in 'the prim- ary room. The argument 'BO often used in rnral districts that, any 'orio can teach the little ones bus no weight wifti such a board. They kuow that as the foundation is tlio first essential to an enduring struct- ure, so the best instruction is none too good for primary pupils. So it is throughout the entire corps oC teachers. Now and then the 'cheap teacher craze strikes some of-'oiir towns, but if a dry rot has not per- meated their whole system, this lasts but a short time, and only strength- ens the estimated worth of tho good teacher and thc% good school. In some of our rural distiictn there seems to be an awakuuing in regard to the value of good rchools. A more earnest consideration of tho merits of applicautH is being made, hnd -the really deserving teachers are being hived for longer periods of time. We wish this sentiment could grow so that directors would refuse under any conditions to hire any but tbe best teachers. Thp idea that any body can tench yonV school is absurd. Tha question of relation- ship, friendship, etc. should have no part in the selection of a teacher. Let applicants know you are par- ticular, that you are more willing tb hava no school than a poor one, and you will be surprised at the results. If the means you have at your dis- posal arc too little to hire a good teacher for-eight months, use it to hire a good teachor for six mouths. It is not the number of months tho school is kept, but the results com- ing from earnest, intelligent study on the partpf the pupils that determines the worth of a scoool. Do not hire teachers who have not the ambition to prepare thoroughly for tho work. A teacher who spends all her means on dress is not a good teacher of nractical and one who can not govern herself is a failure in teaching cival government. Finally, we say this to directors, study needs of ,yopr .school, keep your schoolbouso iu good repair, and hiro none bat tbc oest ard County Teacher.
