In liberality for the purpose of establishing and maintaining public schools, Cass County is one of the foremost in the state. In 1873, its school houses numbered 81, valued at over $60,000, and during the year previous the county expended in building school houses and maintaining schools upwards of $45,000. This, at a time when its population numbered about 7,000, may be considered a fair sample of its enterprise in this direction. The county has made excellent use of the land set apart for permanent school fund, and thus realized a fund of $47,533.70. With her means for adding to the wealth stored in the mind and all that can be required for the body, who can arrest her progress?
