Cut the Weeds.
Xow is the proper time for all
farmers to mow the weeds alonfr
their farms. The law provides
for a penalty for failure to do
between the 15th of July and the
lath of August. While the law
has set the above date, now is the
time to mow them, as the greatest
rood can be accomplished at this
time. I would advise all the farm
ers alone; the highways of our dis
trict to pel after them just as soon
as possible, while they can be cut
much easier. F. Vallery,

involved in trouble there by at
tempting an assault on a yoim-'
'ir!. The judce. after hearing
th" evidence in the case, decided
to -end the boy to the reform
school for a few years in order
that lie may be taught a b'.-son.

fortunate one. but it is (o le' hoped

him and keep away from viola
tions or attempted violations of
the law in the future.
