One of the big boys went to school last Monday pretty well "heeled" for the new teacher, but Prof. Matthews took his six shooter away from him and flogged him. This district will soon have a daisy reputation, if the big boys persist in carrying knives, pistols, brass knuckles and sling shots to school, for "self defence" against any teacher the directors may employ. It will soon be impossible to employ a teacher for any less salary than that of a colonel in the regular army or a metropolitan chief of police.
