During the last session of the legislature A. K. Eugstrom, school su|M*rin« l«*riclf*iit of Goodlm** county, Anti president of the las? state convention of county superintendents, went to .St. Paul and labored with the law-rnakers to pacs a bill providing better oppor-! tunities for the training of teachers in each of the counties, lie explained Ids I plan and the inadequacy of the Normal Schools as follows, and his views are important at this time in connection with the discussion which is going 1 on in the newspapers upon tile proposition to donate the Normal schools to 1 tile respective Cities in Which they are located. The facta and arguments of Mr. Kng-strom are unanswerable. He said: ‘ The object of this bill is to improve the country schools by improving the quality of their teachers. It is to pro-] vide a course of normal training - shall be within tile reach of common teachers, and Hint shall be inexpensive & 11 ttngHjs**** tii«> Attention of flu* t onnril • -•Light.

You won’t find a lot of shop-worn goods, job lots, etc., in our stock, but Everything New and Fresh, that drives the wearer pleasure and satisfaction, large and complete stock of £> Our sively to preparing teachers for these schools. 1. To take a course in the normal schools as t!,**y are how organized 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 got better pay. S. As a result most of the country school teachers ar** without normal • training. Only 2* per cent are normal graduates; ‘Jo per cent have attended a ' normal school out have not graduated, I and 77j>er cent of all w ho enter upon the work of common school teaching 1 are boys and girls who* never had any ' special training. The result is inefficiency and a fearful amount of waste time by those who are trying to do 1 what they do not understand. The normal schools wert* originally (established to educate and prepare teachers for the common schools, and I it is twenty-eight years since the first ; school at Winona was established. I, j however, claim that whatever the nor-j mal school may have done, may be do-; ing. or may do in the future for our i cities and villages, they have not done, ; are not doing, and never can or will do I much directly for the common schools. , The fact is the normal schools have ; been trying to do too much. They have I been trying to prepare terchers for all j the different educational positions in I our educational system. It would pay better if they should airn at preparing teachers for cities and villages exclusively, and for this purpose raise the standard of work as nigh as possible. Then, in turn, it is the wish of county school superintendents that these city and village schools that have the bene-lit of normal-trained teachers, should have one of their courses of study especially adapted to the training of those who intend to become country school teachers. There are in this state sixty high schools. We want these high schools to help to train teachers for the country schools, and they are willing to do it, providing help is forthcoming from the state. 11 cannot be denied that the comity schools have been more neglected than any other part of our educational system. And yet 77 per cent of the people of the sUite depend wholly on the country sciiools for all the school education they ever get. J t is useless to tell them that the doors of th** higher institutions 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." — •«- A SESSION WITH THE BOAT, Falls Winter Clothing! Must jro. Now is the time to bu)*.

Most Worshipful Grand Master of the order of Masonry iii this state, visited Western Star lodge in this city last Thursday evening, and the event proved to be one of the most interesting and profitable the lodge has ever experienced. A candidate was raised to the third degree, the work of which Grand Master Keister pronounced to be beyond criticism; then he delivered an address. It related to the principles of the order, and the relations 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 history of masonry in the state. There was alarge attendance and the address was closely listened to and treasured in the memories of all present. Members then repaired to the dining hall where M. 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 sociable affair, and was informally enjoyed by all. There were nine brethren present from the Lake Mills, Iowa, lodge, and they were especially grati-lied with the work, the address and the pleasant scenes that followed. The visit of Grand Master Keister was admitted by all to have been of great value as well as a pleasure to the lodge, and it was the unanimous wish that he might soon repeat it, and at the same time that “Martin” might be captured to tickle the appetites of the brethren and guests. A Hale Old Man. A hale old man, Mr. J as. Wilson of Alien’s Springs, 111., who is over sixty years of age, says: “I have in my time tried a great many medicines, some of excellent quality; but never before did I find any that would so completely do all that is claimed for it as Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and Diarrhcee Item eely. It is truly a wonderful medicine.” For sale by Parker & Briggs. the bill is $2490. Mr. Mecum presented the case of \Y iii (Ut, who Wits injured by tile city tank falling on him while he was at work, putting it in position. Mr. Slocum recommended that S*20 be paid him. It was so ordered unanimously. Mreet Commissioner Marlett reported that the following sidewalks need rebuilding: In front of A. II. Street’s store, block 21 west side of Broadway; in front of II. I). Brown's store building on block 21 west side of Broadway; bl front of T. W. Wilson’s machine shop on block 7. occupied bv s. Heinsberg, west side Washington street: in front of T. If. Armstrong's vacant lots on Fountain street, north side; in front of Geo. T. Gardner’s lots on lot 5, south side of Fountain street; in front of J. ll. Parker's residence on block 2. north side of Fountain street; in front of opera house on block 9, east side of Broadway. The sidewalks named were on motion condemned and new .walks ordered laid. The following were afterwards included: South and west sides of Hewitt lot, comer Park avenue and Grove street; in front of T. K. Haugen’s residence, ( has. Hanson’s. Mrs. Frandsen's, Mrs. Armstrong’s, Martin Olson’s, all on south side Water street, and o. C. Hayden’s, north side of same street. Alderman Knatvold asked Chief Mitchell of the lire department if there was now an engineer to take charge of the 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 engine. Mr. Knatvold stilted that it was reported that Mr. Anderson had run away, and that the other man had no license. Chief Mitchell said he supposed it was so, and that so far as Mr. Kutan, who claimed to be the assistant, was concerned, he had not been near the 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 asserted 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 Kutan has not state license. City Attorney Whytock explained that Air. Kutan claimed he had never been called upon to attend to the engine. Chief Mitchell said Mr. Kutan attended no meetings of the lire 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, Air. Anderson in the meantime to be communicated with. Air. Richards stated that complaints were made that sidewalks were obstructed by merchants and others, and he demanded that the officers enforce the ordinances and clear them. No action, however, was taken.

While potatoes are numerous in Alin-nesota and particularly in Anoka county, the potato crop throughout New England has been nearly ti failure, 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 10,000 bushels of potatoes this season, are making the experiment 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 extensively in this section, purchasing in this county alone many thousand bushels. As the price in the East, at points IOO miles from Boston, is 50 cts. per bushel, there ought to be money in shipping them front Minnesota, where they can be bought for 20 and 25 cents. The J. W.
