What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

It Was Established In 'Massachusetts In the Year 1641. The first free school established in the United States was In the province of Massachusetts Bay in the year 11;41 by order of the general colonial court. In 1 6 / 7 the same authority - declared that free sebools should be established within every town having fifty house- holders under penalty of a tine of £5. This tine Was doubled by a declaration made in 1671 and again doubled in 1683. Connecticut established free schools in 1644 anti levied a tax for their sup- port. Maryland established free schools In 14394 and levied a tax on negroes, pelts, furs and beef and pork for their support. Governor Berkeley declared in 1049 the hope that free schools would never be established in Virginia, but the towns of Charleston and Eliza- beth did establish them in that year, and Elizabeth set aside 200 acres of lqnd and eight cows, the increase from which was applied to support the schools. Four years later the number of cows had increased to forty.

Molly, would get along. A number of them so Interested themselves that she was made tele-1 phone operator at Sundsville. Molly Lee was twenty, and if she hadn't married before her father's death it was not because of the lack of an opportuolty. Why she didn't was her own affair. Why . she attended strictly to business afterward and had no beaus was also her own affair, hut folks winked and nodded and said it would come around by and by. At Stapleton, twenty-eight miles away. James Williams opened a store about the time Mr. Lee died. He had much telephoning to do in various di- rections, and he called up Sandsville at least once a day. When he heard the new voice over the telephone he liked the sound of it. The more he heard of it the better he liked it. As he was a bachelor and as he was charged with having an eye open for a wife, it would not have been strange had he written to a friend at Sands - rifle to introduce him to that girl with a sweet voice in the telephone °dice, but lie did nothing of the kind, ile could have stepped aboard the train any day and gone and seen for himself, but lie did not do that. Bachelors have their romances as well as young men and maidens. He built up a romance around the \Hello!\ voice, and after a few weeks he would have wanted to knock down the man wbo destroyed it for him. When there was no business on the Sandsville line to call for his opening the telephone he made excuses to do so. He felt he must hear that voice at least once a day, and when be found his romance growing he smiled to himself. By and by the messages over the wire were not strictly confined to busi- ness, according to regulations. He never asked her name, but he be- trayed an interest that brought a blush to her cheek as she carelessly respond- ed: \Yes.\ \I see.\ \I guess so.\ \In- deed!\ Sometimes he left the speaking piece uncovered and hummed a sentimental song. The girl at the other end of the wire knew that the words were meant for her. At first, when addressing her, he had called her after the name of her town. One day he glided away from that and called her Girlie. She was going to rebuke him, but he was In a hurry, and she put it off. For a year the bachelor bugged his roulance to his soul; then he made up his mind to look for something more material. He put on his best suit one day and went down to Sandsville. Any one on the street would have told him that Miss Molly Lee was in charge of the telephone office and would proba- bly have added that she was the hest looking girl in town, but he asked no questions, not even where the office was. He strolled around until he found it for himself, and he kept saying as he strolled: \Jimmy Williams, you are making an idiot of yourself.

About reading Lord Macaulay says: \When a boy I began to read very earnestly, but at the foot of every page I read I stopped and obliged myself to give an account of what 1 had read on that page. \At first I had to read it three or four times before I got my mind firmly fix- ed. But I compelled mpailf to comply with the plan until non., after I have read a book through once. I can almost recite it from the beginning to the end. \It Is a very simple habit to form early in life and is valuable as a means of making reading serve the best pur- pose.\ fence, and you will get snapped tfp In great shape for your cheek.\ He entered the telephone office, and the first glance at the woman behind the desk sent his heart down into' his, boots. A man who stuttered 'badly) had just left L. office after vainly seeking to send a message, and she did not like the way the man from Sta- pleton looked at her. \Well?\ she blurted out as he stood there looking around in a helpless Way. \Name is Williams ,of Stapleton,\ he answered. \Name is Williams of Stapleton,\ he answered. \Well what of that?\ \I—I have done considerable tele-, phoning to this office during the' past year.\ \And have you got any complaints. to make?\ \ No. . \Then what\— \I thought-- That is, I—I\— \Have you been drinking, sir?\ de- manded the operator in a voice full of carpet tacks and pounded glass. \N -n -n-n -o!\ stuttered Mr. Williams after a great effort. \Then you are going to have parebta and had best consult a doctor!\ Mr. Williams withdrew - end went over and sat down In the shade of the grocery steps. A bobtailed dog came along and tried to make friends with him, but he would not respond. One of the hogs sauntering about the village streets approached and grunted amia- bly, but was kicked at in response, The groceryman came out and, rub- bing his hands together, observed that he had just laid In a new stock of crackers and herring, but the bachelor never even thanked him for calling his. attention to the fact By and by, when the cold chill of., disappointment had passed away, be got up and walked to the depot and took the train for home. His romance had been shattered and buried, and he felt small and mean over 'it. There was only one thing left to wonder over. How on earth could that op- erator have disguised her voice as she had when talking with him? Re thought over the matter for two or three days and then dismissed it. During the next two weeks the mer- chant had considerable telephoning to do, but none of it was in the direction of Sandsville. Not once was that office called up. and there was a saving of at least $3 on tolls. Then there came a day that the office had to be call- ed up. \Yea this is Bandsville,\ came the answer in a voice that made him jump. It was the clear, sweet voice he had been accustomed to, \I want\— he began and then stop- ped. \Yes?\ \I want Jackson's dry goods store after awhile, but just now I want something else.\ \What is it?\ \Have—have you got two voices?\ \Why of course not. What a funny question!\ \Are there two of you, then?\ \No; I'm all alone here.\ \Well I'll be jiggered!\ he exclaim- ed, He heard a giggle, and the voice he liked to hear said: \Shall I call up the store now?\ \Not yet. Say, I was down at Sandsville the other day\ \Yee?\ \I called at the telephone office.\ \Did you?\ \And you wanted to know if I hail been drinking.\ \Oh. Mr. Williams!\ \And when I said no you advised me to consult a doctor for paresis.\ \Did he say that? I'm sorry. I was ill for a week and had to get Miss Pickleton to take my place, and she is pretty sharp with people.\ \And It wasn't you In the office that day?\ \Of course not.\ \Then—then\— \Then you want the store?\ \Not by a jug - full I want you, and A shall be down on the afternoon train!l \But Mr. Williams\— But Mr. Williams was hurrying to the depot to catch the train and an, hour later was in Sendsville.
