Fine Result of the Committee's Ef Effort
fort Effort to Raise Funds for the.
Marion County Fair
It has been a real pleasure to the
committee consisting of Messrs. R. S.
Hall, Nathan Mayo and C. W. Hunter
to note the fact that the Marion
County Fair is an institution near to
the hearts of Ocala people and one
which they are not willing to let die.
This fact has been clearly demon demonstrated
strated demonstrated by the way in which the busi business
ness business people of Ocala have responded
to the fair drive the past two days.
Some time ago we mentioned in the
papers that the rural towns and the
country were loyally responding to
this fair move and now it is most
gratifying to see Ocala co-operating
with so much enthusiasm.
Not only is all this very gratifying
to the new fair workers, but there are
those who have borne the burdens of
the fair in other years, who will be
rejoiced to know that it is to live and
we trust thrive as never before.
It has been said that when a county
fair lives ten years it either dies at
that stage or takes on a new and
more vigorous life. Our fair has
passed, the crisis. It lives, and because
it has withstood many hardships, is
qualified for a more vigorous life and
greater success for the future.

I must confess, Mr. Editor, that
you have an ingenious scheme. You
would eliminate the studies taught in
the schools and thus eliminate the
teachers and also eliminate the mak making
ing making of books, and come to think of it,
this would practically eliminate the
schools. Ingenious, isn't it? These
things will come when you can cage

public schools there should be noth
ing taught except what is of use to
every one," and this i3 correct, but I
ear your application of the theory
would be wrong. If you mean that
only such things should be taught as
would be immediately available for
occupational purposes, your theory or
the application of it, is entirely
wrong. Can you select out from the
mass of human knowledge just that
which should be fed to each individual
child? I cannot, and no one can. This
makes it necessary for the best in-
brmed of our people to prepare and
constantly study and revise courses of
study which are of general applica

all others and devouring all he can,
without even a "grunt of appreciation
to the source from whence his feed

Now, in regard to salaries of teach
ers. They range in this county from
$40 to 225 per month and the terms
range in length from six to eight
months. To get the real salary per
month multiply the monthly salary by
the number of months taught and
divide it by twelve for the reason that
the remaining months will probably
be spent in attending school for fur
ther preparation and for advancing
the grade of her certificate. The
teacher usually spends during the
summer vacation what little may
have been saved from her salary
and this will be very little in im
proving herself as a teacher in order
to hold her own in the profession and
to meet the exacting demands upon
the teacher. Considering the require requirements

It is a mistake to think that teach
ers are generally in the business of
training teachers. Their work does not
usually bend in this direction at all.
They know that their pupils will fol
low all kinds of occupations in after
life, therefore, the training must be
general. Then if they looked upon it
from a selfish standpoint, they would
not want to increase the number of
teachers to come in competition with
them in positions.

other features that could be touched
upon. There are many books pertain
