Our teachers association is still alive. Any parish where a teachers association cannot live is to be pitied. Shall we lat the association in Union Parish die? We must not. The association ought be on of the strongest factors in public education in the parish. If teachers are not interested we cannot hope to see the patrons and children interested.

There are a few of the teachers of the parish who meet regularly, but the majority of the teachers do not meet with us. Every teacher of the parish should be a member of the association and be present at its meetings as often as possible. We should avail ourselves of every opportunity for improvement. Our work as teachers is too sacred to be neglected. Associations with our fellow teachers makes us stronger.

The next meeting of the association will be in Farmerville on January 28th 1905. We earnestly request that all the teachers come. The president of the association is very anxious to have the names and addresses of all the teachers of the parish.

The editor of the educational column of the Gazette is anxious to have the teachers to write articles for this column.

If you have something that is good pass it on. It is not not necessary to write a long article; a short one will probably do more good than a long one. If you have anything to report about your school send it to the editor. Teachers should keep in touch with each other and with the schools of the parish.
