The newly adopted school books are now on sale at Mr. W. I. Ingram's in Columbia, at Mr. Lee Chelf's at Knifley, at Mr. J. R. Tutt's, in and J. P. Miller's at Crocus. Mr. Ingram has a good supply of nearly all the books, and will order more as they are needed. The school law requires the patrons to provide their children with, these newly adopted books. The Superintendent, the trustees, the county board, are all required to see that these books are introduced into the schools and used to the exclusion of all other text books. Any of these officials may be fined for allowing any other book to be used in the schools after the new can be had. The fine varies from ten to fifty dol Mill-tow- n, NDMiJfck I . 50 of the County. KKKKXX The advance in price of everything that affects the cost of pub- lishing a paper leaves no room for a dollar loss in the. subscription. We are compelled to receive pay for. every paper or advance the subscription price to $1 50 per year, and more than likely will do both within a very short time. The News can not exist on proises to pay it must receive what it earns. Thousands of dollars are justly due this office and to be plain we want what is due. Many statements have been mailed and but few have sent in the pay. The time to glean in? has come. If ycu fail to receive your paper you may know, that you lose by not paying. It mat- ters not how much money or property you nave, or how good your credit is, we are compelled to collect and will begin the clearance of our books at once. If you have received a statement no other notice is necessary. Where the paper is discontinued we will expect every one to square on our books just the same, and if not done within a reasonable time will use the most effecti ve agency for collection. This notice outlining the methods we are compelled to adopt should receive hearty response from every one who really desires The News.

A vagrant war item records that one Victoriano Huerta is maroon-e- d in London, presumably awaiting a chance to get into Spain. Little noticed amid bigger dis tractions, the Constitutionalists took peaceful possessions of the Mexican capital. The future, perhaps, is anybody's guess; but Huerta is out, and a Government that has some show to restore settled conditions is in, and only a few Arrerican lives have been lost.

Moore, Secretary of the Wisconsin Agricultural Experiment Association, in the selection of seed corn. First. Allow the ears to mature well on the stalk. Second. Select the ears from promising stalks that are leafy, of medium size and which carry one good ear attached about three feel: from the ground. Third. Select only well form-e- n ears with plump, deep kernels and good tips and buts. Fourth. Avoid ears with long or short shanks or those attacked to poorly formed stalks. When taken from the stalk corn usuallyconcains from 20 to 30 per cent, of water. The most convenient way of ridding the corn of this excessive moisture is t by the use of artificial heat, and the corn should be well dried out before it is stored away for the winter. Corn should never be placed against the south side of a building in the strong sunlight, as the direct rays o f the sun will soon injure the vitality of the seed. If corn is cured by hanging under a porch or under the roof of a corn crib it should be stored away before freezing weather sets in, in a dry room where it will not take in moisture from the outside air.

The Belgian Government has been transferred to Ostend, the populace is fleeing into Holland and flags of mercy are flying from the steeples of churches to indicate that these structures if spared will not be utilized in the desperate defense that the garrison is expected to make.

Recent reports from the battle line have made it plain that, succor ,. from this source was extremely doubtful. It is believed that the bombarbment of Antwerp began today :after a demand for the surrender of the city had been refused. Little change on the battle line in the north of France, is indicated in the afternoon statement of the French War Office, It says ithat on the French left wing the Germans have made no progress, while at certain points they have moved back. On the right wing there is no change, it is said. The situation on the center remains much the same.
