Our school district, through its tiustei, has beeu i ompelled by tne iJi 'paittndnt, of Public Instruction at Albany to bring ,in action against an effcuder for a viola'ion of the law ami this is but one insUince. Others will follow In \ther places, as due respect Ustt be shown the law however un­ popular it may be considered. The law MUST be enforced This is the ulti­ matum, uud there will be no getting u. ound ii It doesn 't matter whether or not a trustee wauts to, lie mmply must au i that is all there is to it un less he chouses instead to Btau 1 the •8^, uf the district of tho-public monies withheld That is the only loophole through which he ma y dodge the tin pleasant duty, aud this he in un'ikely to ilo wlllinuly John Grey, of the East Woods dis­ trict of the town of Poundridge, WAS served with papers compelling his at­ tendance ut Albany to show cause why, as trustee, I.e had not enforced i he law in his disn ict And, we are •reditably informed, Mr Grey Is not the only one served win* oke papei.u and \toted\ up to the town i 'i which the compulsory education «' t was bah»he I in the State lnenb ii r The state also has its Br..inlet large, nongh i hover over an 1 pr> tei it- hatch­ ings t nt 11 they poesens Mifflcn t eii -igtli to perform th-ir duties 1 herefore, now that they are in f u!l .lo ^'iessiou of their powers, there an be no further twi ting, squirming or dodging their little act. A school trustee has go' t o walk the plank. An offender against this llttl < act has go t to be made to toe the mark, and, by way of aiding a trustee, a justice of the peace, to whom he may go for a warrant, must on demand issue the warrant or may be removed ftom office. To the winds with senti­ ment' The only way out of the woods for future generations will be the race suicide theory, even though \Our Teddy\ does not lean that way. No worrying then over compulsory achooL acts. - But better than all will be to bare the children and to abide by the law, which, after all, In many instances Is a good one, as it provides an education for many who, but for the law, would be deprived of even the common school privileges. This is especially so in cities and towns where earnings are more desired by avarlciousparenU than the education of their children. Still the law needs remodelling foe the rural districts and allowance made for extreme distances, providing the pa­ rent tries honestly to live up to and conform with the requirements of the law. It should especially discriminate in the matter of children's ages. A little eight- or nine-year old should be allowed exemptions not to be expected from those of more mature years.
