that lie was a brother of J. W. Couch

a mistake altogether. Tlioj are abso-

The report grew out of the press

were committed that Couch had a

SCHOOL HEALTH REQUIRE-
There is a rapidly growing apprecia-
tion both in tlii' State and throughout
the country of the necessity for stricter
sanitary supervision and more oaro in
the construction of rural schools.
Many millions of children attend those
schools. The part they will play in
the general health of tho country both
as regards the present aud the future
cannot be overestimated. And It can
not bi denied that the rural schools
a'c behind those In tho cities. This
might be expected to a certain degree
because the city schools are larger and
more money Is available. Neverthe-
less there is room for decided improve-
ment at comparatively small expense
in a large percentage of our rural
ejliools. The country school should be
ai sanitary and wholesome in all essen-
tial particular- as the best homo in the
community. Kurt Her it should be
pleasing and Bttraqj'vp. in appearance
In Turnlshlngfl aTid surroundings so
that tho community as a whole may be
proud of it; so that the pupils and
teacher may take pleasure In attending
school and in caring for and improv-
As every ground should have trees
shrubs and a real garden or experi-
mental farm the soil of the sihool
grounds should bo fertile and tillable
Rock and clay soil should ba avoided
wherever possible. If the soil tends to
bo muddy a good layer of sand and
fine gravel should be used to make the
playground as useful 88 possible in all
kinds of weather.
It has become well recognized that a
play ground is not a luxury but a real
necessity. A school without a play-
ground not only is an injustice to
childhood but an actual detriment to
healthful development. The school-
ground should havo trees plants and
shrubs grouped witli artistic effect but
without interfering with the children's
playground or the lighting of the
Tho children should always receive
tresh air coming directly from out of
doors through wide open windows in
mild weather and through window
board ventilators under all other con
ditions except when with furnace or
jacketed stove special and adequate
inletB and exits for air are required
The jacketed stove should have a direct
tresh air inlet about 12 inches square
opening through tho wall of tho school
house Into tho jacket against the mid-
dle or hottest part of tho stove. The
exit for foul air should be through an
opening at least 10 Inches square on
the wnll near tho floor 011 the same
side or the room that the stove is
The school room should recelvo an
abundance of light sulllcient lor tho
darkest days with all parts of the room
adequately illuminated. Tho area of
glass in the windows should bo from
onfc-IIfth to one-fourth of the lloor
area. It is also essential that the
school house and grounds should bo
kept as clean as a good housekeeper
keeps her home. Pure drinking water
should always be available The com-
mon drinking cup is dangerous and
should not be tolerated There should
bo good washing facilities about the
school and the toilets should be kept
in an absolutely sanitary condition.

The County Engineer would be very
thankful it the parties would return
those lanterns that wore stolen on the
Stato road. They were placed thore as
danger signals. Persons doing such
little petty stealing oh th la endangers
the lives of the travoling public and
might cause innocent persons to be
killed or wounded for life I gueas
the guilty parties think it a high cut to
get cheap lanterns but It might turn
out to ba a short road to the peniten-
tiary. This Is not the Hrst time that
things like this has happened It bus
beon almost Impossible to keep ropes
on our Kresnos. besides several picks
shovels and other small tools have been
stolen in the last few months and not
very long ago a email sack of bridpe
bolts were stolen In tact there seems
to be a mania along that road to steal
tools or anything that can be found
looso at both ends. Now we don't care
how much you cuss the road or any of
Its construction but whoever is doing
this Is some petty thief that might be
brought to j"tiee as we have a very
good line on the guilty parties with
good prospects of an early arrest and
conviction so it might be well for
those things to be replaced and put
where you found them We under
stand one party said he borrowed them
for a few days.
