During the last o! the legisla- K. Kngstiom. school superiii- U-iident of Coodliin: county, and presi- dent of the last suite convention of i county superintendents, went to >t. Paul and labored with the law-makers to a bill providing better oppor- timities for the training of teachers iu 1 each of the counties. lie explained his plan and the inadequacy of the Xor- null Schools as follows, and his views i are important at tins time in cormec- tion with the discussion which is going 1 on in the newspapers upon the propo- sition to donate the Normal Schools to I the respective cities in which tliey are located. The facts and arguments of Mr. Eng- strorn are unanswerable. He said: "The object of this bill is to improve the country schools by improving the quality of their t'-iicliers. It is to pro- vide a course of normal training that shall be within the reach of common teachers, and that shall be inexpensive to thelstate. There are several reasons why the normal schools can never suc- ceed in doing then- work satisfactorily. I. There are at least persons every year who ranks of com- mon" school teachers. Your normal i schools could not prepare but a small I fraction of this large'number, even if they were to devote themselves exclu- sively to preparing teachers for these schools. I. To take a course in the normal schools as they art now organ- ized is so expensive that persons who have done so cannot afford to teach the country schools, but go to cities and villages, where they can get better pay. '.i. As a result most or the country school teachers are without normal training. Only per cent are normal graduates; '20 per cent have attended a normal school but have not graduated, and per cent of all who enter upon the work of common school teaching j are boys and girls who- never had any special training. The result is inef- ficiency and a fearful amount of waste time by those who are trying to do' what they do not understand, i The normal schools were originally established to educate and prepare teachers for the common schools, and it is twenty-eight years since the first j school at AVinona was established. I, however, claim that whatever the nor- mal school may have done, may be do- ing, or may do in the future for our cities and villages, they have not done, are not doing, and never can or will do much directly for the common schools. The fact is the normal schools have been trying to do too much. They have been trying to prepare terchers for all the different educational positions in our educational system. It would pay better if they should aim at preparing teachers for cities and villages exclu- sively, and for this purpose raise the standard of work as high as possible. Then, in turn, it is the wish of county school superintendents that these city and Tillage schools that have the bene- iit of normal-trained teachers, should have one of their courses of study es- pecially adapted to the training of those who intend to become country school teachers. There are in this state sixty high schools. AVe want these high schools to help to train teachers for the country schools, and they are to do it, providing help is forthcoming from the state. It cannot be denied that the county schools have been more neglected than any other part of our educational sys- tem. And yet 77 per cent of the people of the state depend wholly on the coun- try schools for all the school education they ever get. It is useless to tell them that the doors of the higher institu- tions are open to them. They cannot avail themselves of the open doors. If, then, the masses cannot bask in the sunshine of the higher institutions, these institutions must let their lights shine on the people where they are. They must look downward as well as upward. They must exert themseves to improve as much as possible the people's school." rin: ISUAI, Kngagrx the Attention ot the COIIIK-H .'lore Slile- Must City Pays Kn- sineerM.Biit tlie Kusine is X J31arLl5.ets A SESSION WITH THE i i Fall!

Most Worshipful Grand Master of the order of Masonry in this state, visited this city last Thursday evening, and the event proved to be one of the most in- teresting and profitable the lodge lias ever experienced. A candidate was raised to the third degree, the work of which Grand Master Keister pro- nounced to be beyond criticism then he delivered an address. It related to the principles of the order, and the re- lations which members owed to the order and to each other, and was one of the most eloquent, sensible, practical and instructive ever given in the his- tory of masonry in the state. There was a large attendance and the address was closely listened to and treasured in the memories of all present. Members then repaired to the dining hall where 31. W. O'Connor, the skillful cook and restaurant man. had in readiness an elaborate and most palatable lunch spread. It consisted of fragrant coffee, light biscuit and butter, delicious roast beef, corned beef, tongue, pastry, fruit and other delicacies, and was partaken of with a lively and appreciative relish The lunch was moreover a rarely socia- ble affair, and was informally enjoyed by all. There were nine brethren present from the Lake Mills. Iowa, lodge, and they were especially grati- fied with the work, the address and the pleasant scenes that followed. The visit of Grand Master Keister was admitted by all to have been oi great value as well as a pleasure to-the lodge, and it was the unanimous wish that soon repeat it, and at the same time that might be captured to tickle the appetites of the brethren and guests. A Hnle Old Man. A hale old man, Mr. Jag. Wilson of Allen's Springs, 111., who is over sixty years of age, says: "I have in my time tried a great many medicines, some ol excellent quality; but never before did I find any that would so completely do all that is claimed for it as Chamber- lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoee Bemecly. It is truly a wonderful medi- cine."

Mr. Lowe moved that the street com- mittee be directed to order ten more gasolene lamps, and it was decided to do so, Mr. Slocuin alone voting against A communication from Judge Stacy concerning his bill in the Tollef Tor- gerson case was read. He showed that no motion was made before him for security for costs, and he claimed that he was in law aua justice entitled to the amount due him. Statements were read from Justice Blackmer, W. E. Todd and Jno. Anderson, confirming :ns assertion as to the motion for costs. It appeared that Justice Blaekrner's iu the same case had been paid jy the city. It was moved by Mr. Rich- trds, seconded by Mr. Lowe, that the bill be paid. It was carried. Mr. Slocum I alone voting '-nay." The' amount of :he bill is Mr. Sljcum presented the case of rt m.

Street Commissioner Marlett report- ed that the following sidewalks need rebuilding: In front of A. II. Street's block 21 west side of Broadway; n front of H. D. Brown's store build- ng on block 21 west side of Broadway; n front of T. Wilson's machine shop 3n block 7, occupied by S. Reinsberg vest side Washington street: in front of T. K. Armstrong's vacant lots on Fountain street, north side: in front of Jeo. T. Gardner's lots on lota, south side of Fountain street; in front of J. [I. Parker's residence on block 2, north ;ide of Fountain street: in front of opera house on block 9, east side of 3roadway. The sidewalks named were on motion condemned and new .walks ordered laid. The following were after- wards included: South and west sides of Hewitt lot, corner Park avenue and "rove street; in front of T. K. Hau- bren's residence, Chas. Hanson's.

Alderman Knatvold asked Chief Mitchell of the fire department if there was now an engineer to take charge of ;he engine in case of a fire. The answer was that A. M. Anderson, the regular engineer, was temporarily absent, but there was a man to attend to the en- gine. Mr. Knatvold stated that it was reported that Mr. Anderson had run away, and that the other man had no icense. Chief Mitchell said he sup- josed it was so, and that so far as Mr. Rutan, who claimed to be the assistant was concerned, he had not been near Jie engine and done no work on it for three months. Mr. Wiegand said Mr. Anderson authorized Mr. Leiphart to take charge of the engine during his absence, and he thought it well enough to allow Mr. Leiphart to do it. City Attorney Whytock and Mr. Knatvold isserted that Mr. Anderson had no right to do that, as the engineer was elected by the council. Considerable discussion followed, during which it appeared that Assistant Engineer Ru- tan has not state license. City Attor- ney Whytock explained that Mr. Rutan claimed he had never been called upon to attend to the engine. Chief Mitchell said Mr. Rutan attended no meetings of the fire company; that last year he drew his salary, but did not take care of the engine. The matter was finally put over until the next meeting, Mr. Anderson in the meantime to be com- municated with. Mr. Richards stated that complaints were made that sidewalks were ob- structed by merchants and others, and he demanded that the officers enforce the ordinances and clear them.

While potatoes are numerous in Min- nesota and particularly in Anoka county, the potato crop throughout >Tew England has been nearly a fail- ure, owing to the large amount of rain in the East during the past season. E. Eddy and brother of this city, who have raised some bushels of po- tatoes this season, are making the ex- periment of shipping them to Boston, and sent a carload to the Hub direct by the way of the ''Soo" line this week. A Boston merchant has bought exten- sively in this section, purchasing in this county alone many thousand bushels. As the price in the East, at points 100 miles from Boston, is 50 cts. per bushel, there ought to be money iu shipping them from Minnesota, where they can be bought for 20 and 25 cents.
