which had become rusted and Weaken-

the tank fell out ward, and the roof set-

The force of the water over' uraed a

Luckily no one was in close prox-

that fact means, according to the ground

'It is said that for over two thous-
and years the littio weather prophet

his shadow, with a view of determin-

from the nest at the bottom of his win

tbat auspicious morning he catches a
glimpse of a black shadow behind him
he makes all haste to be back in his
warm nest of leaves for another nap of
six weoks. If, however, tho skies are

Duroc Jersey sows from the Walnut
Lawn Stock farm at LawrencAville, III ,
this wook, which he will use lor brood-
ing purposes Mr Courier, like all
successful and up-to-date farmers, be-
lieves that It cosis no more to breed
| good stools than it does scrubs, and he
sees in the IJurocs one of thetiest Breeds

On Wednesday, January 20 I stopped
out of tho rain and wind at So. 75 Miss
Amanda Gee has charge ol the sohool
there. She has an attandance of 28 out
of an enrollment of 38 There are sev-
eral large girls and boys attending and
they are condu ting themselves like
ladies and gentleman, which proves
conclusivly mat they get the proper in-
struction at home in the school room
and she is doing good work.
Our esteemed friend Mr Musselman
took my team in out of the co'd while I
visited the school Miss Bertha Cavett
is "ruler" of the White school and Wm.
Yarbrough of tho seperate school Al-
though this is Miss Cavett's first school
she seems to bo much more at home in
tho school room than a great many
older teachers. She is working faith-
fully and the pupils soem to respond to
hor efforts. When I went for my team
Mr. and Mrs Mueselman would not
listen to my leaving before dinner Of
course I was not hard to convince that
it would be bettor to "take a littio
something for the stomach's sake,"and
acceptid ihe kind invitation. Mr. Mus-
selman said that he would go and see if ho
could find a little meat for dinuer. I i
did nol quite understand his remark, 1
but he soon returned from the "smoke
house" with as fine a quarter of veal as
I have ever seen or tasted Dinner over
I, in company with Mr. Musselman and
Mr. Wensler, both inembersof the school!
board, visited the apearate school. Wo
found Mr. Yarbrough enthusiastically
at work and the children seemed to ap.
preciate his efforts.
that evening I stopped with my old
friend, A. A. Pajne, and as he had
road au account of the "good samanlan," -
be invited me to pass the night with I
tli'm, which I gladly did. Before supper
he stowed me around. He has a tine
barn with a fine hay mow over bead.
When he thrashed his oats he stuck tho
blower in the window and not only got
all the straw, but he saved all tho waste.
If more farmers would do this they
would have more and better feed for
While we were still inspecting, the
wippeV beil rang and wo Ivastetiod t>o tho
houfie. After a most hearty wolcomo
by his good wife wo wore invited in to
supper You would havo ihought sho
was looking for company. Hut I triod
to keep up my reputation for
eating. Bed time came and I was
shown to my place of sleeping. My
whi;t a good old fashioned bod! I slept
between blankets and did not care to
get up for broakfast.
My noxt stop was at No. <10. I found
Bert McClelland in full control there.
This is his third school, and although
he has always given satisfaction, but I
know of no one that has niado better im-
provements in their teaching than
he has. He has an enrollment of 46
with an attandance of 31. He also has
several large girls and boys in atiendanCo
and all from the largest to tho smallest
seem to be doing their bost.
From No. (30 I went to No 81. I found
Miss Oda Smith there and she seemed
greatly interested in her work,
