U&1 that class that have the MD1A
iits of life which he has received and
those who are stronger In their power
of influence will overcome him with
their caprices, atrategus and Intrigues,
thus laying the foundation for trouble
in the schoolroom, that will more or
less affect the entire community.
This bring8 before us the fact that it
is absolutely necessary to have our
schools under the supervision and di
rection of a principal who is ft teacher
in every sense of the term, and also, to
see that be is backed by a Board who
have the manhood and courage to see
that bis good work is sustained.
It has been my privilege to investi
gate tbe present management of our
public schools and quietly examine the
basis of certain complaints that have
been peddled about the streets by local
fakirs and store-loafers, concerning cer
tain punishments that have been iu-
dieted upon certain offenders among
tne pupils of tbe schools.
Such examination has brought to
light the. facts, that the punishments
given, fell far short of the proportions
and just deterts of the crimes. If the
School Board will now manfully doits
duty in , this matter, instead of wink-
lug at such conduct, and place these
oases on tbe; docket of the courts, then,1
unaer tne evideuee that stands readv
to be revealed at the proper lime, these
culprits must find themselves behind
the bars of a felon's sell. There is a

disgust of every respectable cltlien.
