How can the nation thrive when
the people are compelled, by reason
of a scarcity of money to pay a
higher rate of interest in their me

cent, made by them in the pursuit
of their calling?-The law of sup
ply and demand determines the
value of money in its purchasing
power. The less money there is the
more you must give of your labor

money decreases so do prices fall

and strikes, with all their evils.
' The Peoples' party has decided
to hold five mighty rallies at the
latter end of the campaign. The
first will be held at Sams Valley

town on Thursday, Nov. 3d; the
fourth at Medford on Friday, Nov.
4th; and the filth at Ashland on
Saturday,. Nov. 5th. . .
The intention is to start with as
much enthusiasm as can be stirred
up and at each succeeding rally to
increase the hum, ending at Ash
land on Saturday, Nov. 5, with the
most gigantic hurrah the county
has ever seen, thus making victory
doubly sure on election day.
Noted speakers from abroad will be
present to help in the work.

MKDF0RD PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
M. L. KAnagUAM, PKIWCIPAU
Tha attention of the school interested
public it) called to a few of the State
School Laws by which school boards
and teachers are controlled. Many
have a i idea that a teacher creates aud
runs a school just as he pleases. See
T.tlo IV, See. 37, Art. Vi : "Boards of
directors shall have entire control of
the public schools of their district, and
the teachers employed therein. Thj
board may establish such rules and rcg-!
ulations for the government of TEACII
eks and pupils not inconsistent with
the rules and regulations of the State
Board of Education, as tbe INTERKST8
Of the SCHOOL MAY RECIKK."
Iu compliance with this law our
board of directors have established
rul-s and regulations for the control of
the public schools of our city aud the
touchers are hired under the sume aud
expected lo duly euforce them or give
up to some one that can, and pleuse re
member when you are finding fault
with your teachers, they are only obey
ing aud trying to enforca the law.
Tbe first dutv of a teacher, as laid
down by tbe laws, is to maintain order
und exercitM a watchful care and over
sight over the conduct of pupils, not
ouly during school hours, but also at
the recesses and intermissions and
while going to and returning from
"No pupil shall be allowed to retain
connection with any public school, un
le.vH provided with books, slates and
other things required to be used in tbe
cl-isces to which be is assigned."
This rule is made by the State, Board
of Education for the bettering of the
schools and under the authority of the j
legislative sanction. Yet we have
many children in school who are not
supplied witlfanything in the line of
school equipments, and their parents
blame tbe teachers V-cause they ask
for tools for their children to work
"Every pupil is required to attend
school punctually and regularly; to con
form to the regulations of the schools
and to obey promptly all the directions
of the teacher, to observe good order
and propriety of deportment, to bo dil
igent in study, respectful to teachers
and kind and obliging to schoolmaU-s ;
to refrain entirely Irom tno use 01 pro
fanity and vulg-ar language, and lo be
clean aud neat in person and clothing."
e wish that every p-rsoa in toe
community would obtain a copy of the
school law and stuuv tho laws and rules
and regulations of the state school
board and get thorough understanding
of how the schools are formed sup
ported and controlled, and then assist
school officers and teachers in carrying
out the provisions of the law.
