News I Have just finished visiting the Adair county schools and looking after their sanitary conditions II find the health conditions good They generally have good watersome have to go quite a distance to get it but the most qf them have good neighbors who will not deny good water to the children of the schools 1 found the attendance generally bad It is awful to think how little attention is paid to the schools by the trustees and the parents We have had under the old law about 270 men who have been elected or appointed trustees whose business it is to look after the condition of the public school We also have a superintendent who receives the money from the State and pays it out to the teacher and the name of her office implies that she too has to see how the schools are getting along- I kept a recordof the attendance at the various schools and wish it published so that the people can see how the work of the public schools is being done The number of pupirchildren in thet county as given to me by teachers is 5095 The number in attendance is 1605 the number absent was 3190 making the attendance 37J per cent This includes all the schoolstaking the colored schools separately we have in alU 78 with an attendance of 128 or just 25 per cent s 1 found one only with no attendance and that was in a good neighborhood with 53 in the district I found two with only one present in each These were colored districts Among the whites I found one district with 79 and only 4 present I found two others with only 4 and yet I do riot blame the teachers They seemed to bedoing the best theycould In talkingwith them I found some of them murderers of the Kings English One of them whom I had met only once before a year ago when I asked her if she knew me an swered 0 yes I knodeyou as soon as I seed you A verycommon express ion among them is 1 taken so and so I attributed this fault to the examiners They should I think give tlem oral examinations on grammer if it is lawful to do so Of course they know better but they should be taught to be more particular and not make so many blunders in the presence of their schoqls Now I see no splu ion of this state of things tyut in a rigid cpmpulsory school law We have a compulsory law now but it wont compuise We once had a law requiring the teacher to be dis missed if he did not keep 25 per cent r in attendance 1 do not know what has become of that Jaw It was a very poor law and ought nevjer to have been enacted It made the teachers respon sible for the non attendance of the pupils and made no provision for the 75 per cent not attending One trouble with our common school systenis the teachers are paid just as much for the children who do not at tend school as for those who do The teachers are paid in our county the magnificent sum 15000 or more and this sum divided by the number attend ing would be 8 dollars each- I do not want to close this communi cation without saying something respecting the school houses Some are good some are bad and some are in different One house I visited was made of logs and the door was off the hinges the stove was nearly burned up had no shutter to the door and two of the windows to the house had not even sash taJhem That young lady teach er went from Columbia was bright and cheerful and making no complaint She had eight little children huddled aroupd that thing that had once been a stove and not a word of complaint from any of them If there had been a case of diptheria or scarletina in that neighborhood I would have suspended that school and sent the child ren and teacher home And yet keep ing those children there under the circumstances was much more detrimental to their health than the other would have been for that day the thermom eter registered

go to the stable heated from work and tired from exertion should be watered and allowed to rest for thirty min utes before receiving their feed or grain A tired anima is in abnormal condition to properly assimilate its food The horse should be watered before being served with rations for water- i g the animal after feeding washes a portion of the food out of the stomach into the large in testines where it ferments arid creates gas and colic says Drovers Journal It is a mistake to feed a horse much hay at the noon hour as the nutrients in grain are more concentrated and easier of assim

made of the new Queensboro bridge across the East river at New York by thousands pf migratory birds and hundreds of pigeons which spend the night in the sheltered nooks in the lower deck of the structure The bridge workers say that in the early morning hoijrs the big cantalever is simply alive with birds of many varietiesSSwarms of swallows have fastened on to one corner of the structure from which they have driven off the othet birds John Dirgen a bridge worker declared recently that one morning he saw hundreds of swallows form in battle array arid attack and expel two Cats that had ventured upon the structure and were getting fat eating birds Flights of pigeons make toward the bridge nightly shortly after 5 oclock and alight in favorite roostjng places During the rains and sleet storm the other night a flock of wild ducks sought shelter on the structure and two of them were found dead on it the next morning haying dashed against the ironwork in their flightSWhile the other birds take their flight when work begins in the morn ing the saucy sparrows remain and the pigeons also stay and make friends with the workmen Edward E Sinclair an engineer on the bridge said I have been bridge building for twenty years but never efor saw so many birds and so many kinds of them gather together on a bridge as are now at night on the Queen boro bridge Kipling in his Bridge Builders points out that when ever numbers of birds gather on a bridge in process pf building or nearly completed it is an indication that the structure will stand all tests This has also been my experience I built a bridge in Iowa several years ago and flocks 01 birds strangely made their home on it That bridge too was criticised but it is standing today and has done twice the work contemplated when it was built Another bridge whose stability was Questioned to which thousands of birds flocked was one built across the Mis souri river by the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe railroad and it is doing great work today Many of my associates in bridge building have noticed this same Instinct of birds Ornithologists say that birds in large flocks will not settle on a weak structure I The workmen employed on the bridge also regard the presence of the birds an omen of good luck LOCKERS FOR MATINEE HAtS Manager of a Paris Theater Provides ThemFor Patrons A clever theatrical manager in Paris has found a way of solving the mati nee hat question which has been Vex ing that city says Town and Country It has all along been urged with reason that a hat costing over 100 should not be left in the cloakroom with sticks and overcoats M Geinier who manages the Theatre Antoine appreciated the reasonable ness of this argument and has pleased the women of Paris by catering to their hats instead of ordering them out of the theater when they refused leave them in the cloakroom ItoHe has lined the corridor pf his playhouse with pigeonholes and fitted mir rors at convenient places Every lad on booking her seat gets a key whicL fits the pigeonhole allotted to her place and she can thus rest assured that her latest piece of millinery will not suf fer This is a far wiser arrangement than rising in wrath

gave evidence of being great novelists in this regard funds Needed to Fight Disease Secretary Wilson of the Department of Agriculture has appealed to Congress for an emergency appropriation of 500000 needed by that Department to fight the foot and mouth disease I n that statement before the House committee Secretary Wil son expressed as his opinion that the outbreak of the disease now prevalent in several States was due to the importation into this country of either biological pro ducts or such material as straw with merchandise or in the clothes or effects of immigrants It seems clear now that the present outbreak had its origin near Detroit said the Secretary and that the infection in the other States came through that sour eoAfter all knowa infected herds have been slaugh tered and buried and the pim ises disinfected it will be neces sary to make a careful and thorough inspection from farm to farm in the infected regions Ito detect any contagion that may possibly remain in order tor preventthe spread to other States With the combined efforts of State a n d Federal authorities there is levery reason to believe thatxthe disease will be eVadicat ed Within a reasonable time As the
