There were several applicants for the position of High school teacher. All were Given careful consideration but the two hoards seemed unanimous in the Choice of Thomas b. Shannon of Turbotville who on a visit to the South Side had favourably impressed the directors. He is a Man on the score of whose qualifications there is to doubt.

That the wooden Bridges will have to go was demonstrated a few Days ago when a traction engine went through one of that Type of Bridge in Anthony township. Nearly a dozen other Bridges of the same Type which have become county Bridges formerly considered sate will be Likely to yield in tote same Way when put to the test. The traction engine ponderous in itself and drawing after it the massive Thresher now penetrates every Corner of the Countryside illustrating that even the remotest Rural locality is affected by the Industrial revolution and the changed conditions generally that characterize this practical age. Obviously nothing remains but for the various communities to keep Pace with the Progress of the times in All thing and Hiot course implies that if the old Woodden Bridges or culverts Are not Strong enough to hear the traction engines which Are Here to stay a then nothing remains to do hut to build Bridges of Iron which will prove equal to the new burdens imposed. This is precisely the View taken by the county commissioners who have decided to enter upon Trie work of Bridge construction on a Large scale they have decided to build a once three new Bridges in addition to the three for which bids Are being invited and contracts for the in Riding of which will a awarded next week. All three of die new Bridges will be in the Northern part of the county. One will replace the Bridge broken by the engine of the Road leading from Hurley a school House to White Hall one of the other Bridges to be rebuilt is Kowit As the Sechler Bridge Ami the other As the Maust Bridge next summer the commissioners expect to take up the work anew and Bridge in Riding will probably be the order for several years to fete at Hospital Shir at the h0� representing a number of taxpayers of the Moore school District of Rush township attorney George.
