School in Our Town The question is before the citizens of willihaveis to be taken the 28th inst to decide the question If 1 should view it from- a financial and selfish view point I would vote against the measure for the reason that I have no children here who could derive any benefit from it neith er grandchildren or kinpeople So I do not see how it could benefit me in any way from any selfish stanpoint But that tiooughtthis to the greatest good to the great anestOur common schools can never ac complish in the town much greater good then are now doing Two teach ers cant do justice to three hundred f pupils in the school under any circum stance There is not room enough in the two school buildings here to accommodate them all if they should1 all attend There will not be the presen year perhaps more than 33 J per cent Ifof an average attendance during th months So the State now pays eleven hundred dollars to the two teach- ersi of Columbia for 100 pupils six months It is not the fault of the teachers It is the same all over th county and has been for years The Graded School will make a grea in this thplentyschool building to accommodate all th pupils in the district and plenty o teachers to do them justice Then th attendance will be greater because of these additional accommodations experienci1are paying directly out of their pockets a part of the tuition for their children they will take more interest in sendin their children to schqol The attend ce I feel safe in saying from the e 4perience of other towns will reach a TBythere will be created in the children a inspiration to do their best in passing the grades and an ambition to excel each other in their attainments Whe IDtheoperation the population of our toW will increase in a wholesome and healthy degreeI this because it is the experien ce of all the towns that have tried it will increase the business of the town and the churches and Sunday schools will be greatly strengthened The will be in the future a better citize ship a higher moral standard and purer Christianity I beleive all the things will be true if we decide to ha the graded school Then the Lindsey Wilson school will be benefitted by it ifthey will raise their standard to a collegiate course and take pupils from the graded school Theyhave t country pupils in the rate of board a tuition and would hold their present a vantage in cheaper board than could secured in town for the graded scho Let every citizen consider well what the present opportunity means to the future upbuilding of the town Iftwould keep apace with our nei towns and with the demand for a hi er and more universal education of the future generations we must avail ourselves of these modern and better ad vantages Dont vote against theme ure because of the little money it cost you We can not have advap ment on any line without money you have plenty of money and no chi ren count it a God given privilege help bear the burdens of others Bear ye one an others burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ Z T Williams A Voice From Monticello 19r08 I Columbia Ky 4DearSh r Your letter in reference to the matter of a grad school has been received Our school has now been in operation tenen- tirely satisfactory toa11 the patrons and I dont believe any body would be willing to go back to the old plan This year we have 453 pupils in the district which takes in a little morel territory than the town Our taxation is 50c with 1 poll tax and we collect on something Over 600000 We have a bonded debt of 10000 for build 500iper r year These bonds were placed in y it J theirfChicago We employ a principal and beIa nine months three of the other teachers win get 50 per month and three 35 When we started we had to em ploy teachers from a distance but this year we will have some home teachers and they can afford to work for less than the others I think our collections for tuition outside the district amounted to a little over 300 last year We received from the State 1456 44 and our tax collec ns were about 4000 I hope this m will be of service to you will cover the ground We also employ a janitor at 20 per month Our building is heated by furnances and fuel costs about 150 per year Iam Yours very truely W L Baker A Modest Expression thtof last week in offering its thee COIlumbiaview of the matter If the establishment of such a school

as most other little towns of its size At the present rate of tuition with the loss of the majority of the town pupils we could hardly afford to continue even if the number in attenda continues the same If we raise the tuition to compensate for the decrease in attendance so that the income would remain the same we would not get so many It ia not what we get out of it that is a benefit to Columbia but the number induced comexhere to school Any comparison of conditions i little town like this and a much larger one like Glasgow is apparent rather than realand would be so even their

that the United states is the reaMiome of the railroad but a passenger train has just been placed in service in India by the side of which the finest passen ger train in this country would not have the advantage as far as comforts for travelers are con cerned Chief among the special features of this train which runs between Calcutta and Bombay are the bath rooms There are three of these in each

drops squeezed into half a wine glass of water each morning or night will act more beneficially on the system than purgative pills or salts To Tell The Age of A Sheep The age of sheep is very easily shown by examination of the teeth A lamb has the first pair of permanent front teeth when about ten months old the second pair appears at about eighteen month the third pair at twenty eight months When the whole of the permanent front teeth have appeared the sheep is in its 4th year The Merino matures its teeth later than the other breeds the Costwold and Southdown and other highly improved mut ton sheep are some months ahead of a Merino but at four years every sheep has its full mouth of teeth Later the age is known by the appearance of the teeth which gradually lose their sharp edges and becomes worn down smooth A healthy sheep will keep its teeth until ten or twelve years old if the pasture is not unusually bare and the soil sandy so as to wear the teeth excess ivelyEx Material For Hats Felt is seen occasionally but the hat of the moment is of setin ottoman or cloth Ottoman is more to the front than for years and velvet is often coveredwith folds of mousseline- o the same shade Sombre is the motto of the millinerial season and there are more dark hats seen than for a decadePlumes wings and aigrettes are demitones of blue green purple and other serious shades Nile green and noncommittal shade known as aubergine or egg plant are finding favor and from a combination almost uni versally becoming Karl Buff used and all tones of yellow are in vogue for the late hats and

silage may be made to take the pl ceof grain in feeding dairy cattle Two rations were fed carrying practically the same amount of day matter In one ration over fifty per cent of this dry mattter was derived from silage In the other ration over fiftyseven per cent of the dry matter was derived from grain no silage being fed The cows fed with the silage ration produced 967 pounds of milk and 508 pounds of butter fat per 100 pounds of dry matter The cows fed on the grain ration produced 813 pounds of milk and 39 pounds of butter fat per 100 pounds of dry mat terThe cost of feed per 100 pounds of milk was 687 cents with the silage ration and 106 with the grain ration The cost of feed per one pound of butter fat was 131 cents with the silage ration and 221 cents with the grain nation The average net profit per cow per month over cost of labor was 586 with the silage ration and 256 with the grain ration o New Governors Elected Colorado George Shafroth Dem Connecticut George F Lil ley

have solved the problem of cheaper paper that will dispense alto gether with the use of wood fiber The new material from which five grades of paper already have been made is the ordinary corn stalk and the officials predict when the manufacture of the new kind of paper is stated on large scale it will be at least 50 per cent cheaper than the print pulpIthat this shall come to pass Surely the world would profit from such a discovery The pres ent source of print paper is the spruce tree which has been taken charge of by the trust The trust says that the raw ma terial is becoming so scarce that it has been necessary to raise the price There is some doubt about this among a number of people who have to deal with the trust and a congressional investiga tion is now in progress with a view to placing wood pulp on the free list Now if cornstalks can beused in making paper the trust will be put out of business and the paper problem will set tle itselfSt Joe News The editor sees fraud and

farm animals should not be fed as an Iexcusiv coarse feed but always in connection with some 3ry roughage The nearer the Dma turity the forage is cut for the silo the more silage may safer be fed but it is always well to avoid feeding it excessively The difference in the chemical composition and digestibility of the same forage green dried and in the form of silage is very slight and the relative feeding value of the different forms is dependent chiefly upon their platability and physical effect Silage is usually more palatable to animals than ry feeds and it- acts as a mild laxative and keeps the digestive system in better condition than is usual with most dry feeds Silage green soiling feeds and pastures seem to keep the digestive system in about the same condition Just For Fun An musing

National Apple Show of Spokane from 15000 growers operating in the various belts in the Union The returns show that while drouths excessive rains or pests districtsIn- and several Southern States the entire crop is fully as large as in 1907 and it is better distributed Prices also are higher than last year However the domestic supply is smaller than at any time since 1895 for the reason that the demands of the export trade are heavier and increasing yearly Reports from a majority of the growers indicate that the condi tion of summer arid fall apples is the best but that in numerous districts the winter varieties are not lip to the standard This it is stated is true in Maryland Missouri Illinois Indiana and Arkansas while Massachusetts will harvest less than a 50 per cent crop Connecticut New Hampshire Rhode Island and Vermont report as much fruit as in 1907 but the crop in Maine will be smaller than itwasIast year However the quality is fair in most of the districts While the yeild in Niagara belt reported to be holding up well the State of New York as a whole will not produce more than 50 per cent of its normal crop The cause assigned for this being heavy rains and lack of spraying at the proper time The crop in New Jersey is fair Reports from Ohio give estimates ranging from 20 per centv of a ful crop to 75 4 You naturally would prefer to treat yourself at home for any

one to come will follow him and try to per suade the authorities to allow us to enter the leper colony with him Then he can have the com fort of having us with him I believe it is my wifely duty to stand by John in the worst things as well as the best I took him for better or worse and surely I would be a coward if for my own safety and comfort I should desert him He needs me so much Oh it is so hard not to heable to be near him to kiss him but the doctor says no I know he longs to caress baby John too he looks at him pitifully when the baby stretches his hands to him TwJyears ago we were married We promised to love and cherish eachother I meant it and so did he Why can I not share his burden It is joy and my only consolation for his affliction John places his faith in God and so do I

Virginia con stitution was attacked on account of the failure of the members of the con stitutional convention to take an oath to uphold the federal constitution Brickhouse contended that the old
