there can be no good accomplished

none but good men to office, we
think politics in home matters should

didu’t see proper to promote him to

with me a few moments; the first aud
grandest cause Is, we need better
teachers, wo need as good teachers as
there is, though we don’t get them.
We don’t need these $40 teachers,but
we want a firist-class teacher, cue who
is compctout to teach school.
We have a splondid free school sys-
tem in Boll county, but under the
prejont management of tho patrons
and teachers the country schools will
never advance as fast as they would
if they would be more careful iu 6C-
lec ing their teachers, but’iliey dou’t
seem to care, just so ho or sho bold a
second grade certificate; they will em-
ploy a young and inexperienced
teacher, and ho wiil turn every schol-
ar back to tho first ot their books,and
perhaps bo will not teach more than
two months before some oue will fall
out with htm, and very soon breaks
up tbe school, and tbe next session
wiil be the same thing over again,
the scholars will be turned back to the
first of their books, and the result is
they never get an education, but a
great many of thou grow up in iguo'-
ance. Now, dear irienus, ju3t bo
more careful iu tbe selectiou ot your
teachers; got a good one if yon have
to pay them $60 or $75 per month, it
will pay you, and if you should get

ome Insurance Company,
New York, January 20th, 1892.
DOWNS BROS. Agents,
Herewith we hand you the statement of the Company, showing its
condition at the close of 1891.
Thejear has been a hard one for Insurance Companies, so hard
hat many have given up the struggle for existence; still the “HOME” comes
out of the battle stronger than ever before.
Please notice not only the amount, but the quality of the securities
held by the company and the enormous Re-Insurance Reserve held for the se-
curity of Policy holders.
The premium receipts of the company during the past year have
been larger than e\ er before, the increase over the verv large premiums of 1890
being some $700,000.00, although many risks which have proved unprofitable
have been cut oil without hesitation and the business was never in better
shape than now.
In 1892 the officers look to every agent to increase his business over
hat of 1891 on all classes of desirable risks.
The experience of all companies shows that rates are entirely too low
upon all classes sf risks, especially special hazards and large mercantile risks
both wholesale and retail, upon which the losses dining the past year have
been simply enormous.
The co-operation of every agent is confidently expected to secure
an increase of business so that 1892 may be the most prosperous year in the
history of tde company.
Yours very truly,
JOHN H. WASHBURN,
DOWNS BROS.. Ao’Tb.
