Between Two Stools. —The Minister of Education in Victoria is evidently somewhat of an “original.” Not long ago, it being considered advisable to appoint a married teacher to a certain country school, he gave notice to the ger tleman who held the position, that he would have to get married before a certain date, or be removed. The unfortunate teacher, thus ruthlessly placed between prospective want and matrimony, endeavored to obey the orders of his chief, and made strenuous exertions to induce some eligible female to share his lot. Sad to relate nobody would listen to him, and the fated day arriving, he was forced to acknowledge his ill-fortune, and was accordingly removed from his position.
