A prominent educator of this
vicinity said to your reporter
the other day that it had been
his observation that Hartshorne
did not regard the school ques-
tion with the degree of impor-
tance that it should, else it
would tear down that old
weather-beaten building that is
now serving the purpose of a
school house and erect in its
stead a commodious and sightly
structure, more in keeping
with present needs—a building
that would afford ample fa-
cilities for all purposes for which
it is intended. 11 we would
have a town here we must needs
begin at the foundation, and the
foundation is the schools—no
question about that—the bul-
wark of civilization, the guiding
star of the universe, the stepping
stone to future greatness. The un-
developed resources of this coun-
try are unfolding with each pass-
ing year, and we are convinced
that time will fully demonstrate
its resourcefulness,but the school
question will admit of no delay.
As is pointed out by the per-
son above mentioned, there are
numerous desirable citizens with
their families who arc anxious
t o settle here, but for the inade-
quate school facilities. Not only
should our attitude on this
matter be such as to stand as a
perpetual invitation to the best
class of citizens from the states,
but local needs render improv
id facilities imperative.
It Hartshorne would put more
money in school buildings and
school teachers, it would yield
larger revenues trotn all lines of
The school question is one
which cannot l)e too highly re-
garded, as upon this question,
alone, rests more than any one
thing, the future significance of
our town. Without improved
educational advantages, a town
can never hope to attain to a
position beyond that of a mere
mediocrity, and the sooner the
people awake to the realization
of this plain truth, the sooner
will the town begin to feel the
effects ot a better class of emi-
gration from the ranks of people
who regard the education ol
their children of vital import-
. Mr. and Mrs. Albert Rader
have returned from a three
months' visit to Mr. Nader's old
home in Eastern Illinois. Mr. ]
H. has had a siege of it with his
arm, which was broken by fly-
ing fragments of an emery wheel
while in the employ ol the Rock
Island Coal Co., about eight
months ago, since which time he
has not been able to do any
work. We are glad to learn,
however that his condition is
greatly improved since having
that member reset, and trust
will hasten his ultimate recovery.

No. 7 shaft has been working
steadily for the past two weeks,
excepting two days, which were
lost in making repairs. No. 8 is
working about half time, and
the mines at Gowen, we under-
stand, are hitting a steady gait.
Milby & Dow's mines are work-
ing every day now. Operators
of the various slopes, supplying
custom coal are kept on a long
keen run nowadays. Fact is
the coal barons are wearing
broad smiles, and we hope that
