The sliillal.iU is no raw limb of a
tree. It is almost as much a work of
art as a well balanced cricket bat. The
old shilialahs were as carefully looked
after by their loving owners as is a
ride in the wilds. Cut f rum rthe stur
diest of young blackthorns and show
ing as little taper as an ebony ruler,
it was weighted with lead or iron at
the end nearest the grip so that its
center of gravity was about four-lifths
of the way from the hitting end.
When properly seasoned by being kept
in the neighborhood of the farm oven
for a few months it became a thing of
sr.pple steel. And the proper pronun
ciation of the name of this fearsome
weapon is the melodious one of 'shill
aily." with the accent on the "ail."

Washington, May 4. State and war
department officials are awaiting a re
port from General Scott at El Paso
on his conference yesterday with Gen
eral Obregon, war minister for the de
facta government. Unofficial advices
indicated that the conferees made dis
tinct progress, owing largely to the
reported conclusion of General Obre

could not be persuaded to withdraw
immediately General Pershing's ex

More Trucks Needed.
San Antonio, Tex., May 4. Many
more trucks will be required if the
motor truck line from Columbus, New
Mexico to the field is to be maintain
ed, according to information received
at headquarters. Chief Clerk Daly,
from the office gf the quartermaster
general at Washington, is expected to
reach San Antonio soon with a full
report on the transportation prob

after making an investigation of the
situation. Headquarters has been ad

The Dramatic club, under the direc
tion of Miss Iva M. Dunn, head of the
department of expression, gave their
annual play Saturday evening. They
presented Jerome K. Jerome's "The
New Lady Eantock," every feature of
which was remarkably successful. The
characters were impersonated by Ber
tha Iranmer, Harry Pitman, Milton
Blankenship, A. Ray Scott, Marie Fin-
ley, Rena Burgess, Harry Armende
Homer Schwentker, Evelyn Gardner
Dorcthy Hill, Inez McDowell, and
bevy wf girls, former friends of Lady
Bantock. Each part was carried in a
manner suggestive of professionals
rather than amateur work. Much of
the credit is due Roy Hacrcrerty for
his untiring and effective work as
stage manager. On Monday evening
the play was repeated in Auburn, the
proceeds to be used by the Auburn
hiffh school. This was made possible
because of the expansion service de
partment of the Normal.
Extensive plans are made for the
rural life conference tnd county super
intendents institute to be held June
20-23, in connection with the Peru
Normal summer school. Several men
of national prominence in rural school
education will be present for this con
ference, among them George W.
Brown, head of the new department
of rural education in Peru. The insti
stute will be under the direction of
Mr. Brown. Harold W. Foerht of
Washington, D. C, national specialist
in rural education, and O. II. Benson,
national specialist in boys' and girls'
club work, will be present for two
days. Mr. Foght is recognied as the
greatest authority in America on
rural school problems. H. M. Morse
of the National Board of Home Mis
sions, will give twa lectures on the re
lation of the rural school to the rural
church. He will also conduct some
round table conferences for the ben
efit of ministers and rural teachers. It
is probable that at least one-third of
the county superintendents of this
state will be present during the con
ference. The town of Peru is arrang

The annual May Festival, the most
popular feature of the commencement
week program, will be held Tuesday,
May 30. This festival comprises
three full, programs, the biggest one
of which will be given in the morning
at 10 o'clock, at which time the
"Elijah" will be sung by a magnificent
chorus which has been in training the
entire year under the direction of Dr.
H. C. House. Two musical stars of
great magnitude will appear in these
programs, Charles W. Clarke, "Amer
ica's Greatest Baritone," and Hilly
Koenen, the famous Dutch contralto.
Other soloists are Glen Lee, tenor, of
New York, and Miss Dorothea North,
soprano, of Chicago. Other attrac
tive features are the Mendelssohn
String Quartette of Lincoln and the
children's cantata, under the direction
of Miss Carpenter. Genevieve Gregg
will play the piano parts in the
Elijah." The attempt is to furnish
the greatest music at a price within
the reach of all, only one dollar being
charged for all three programs, with
no extra charge for reserved seats.
Better Than Expected.
Mr. John Firment of Bowersville,
Pa., member of Lodge No. 181, P. S.
K. J., writes as follows: "Dear Mr.
Triner: Thanking you for your Lini

hops Triner's Liniment would rid me
of my pains in back as quick as it did.
I suffered with pains in the small of
my back, and when no plasters were
of help, I ordered Triner's Liniment
and after my wife rubbed me with it
for the second time, I felt lots better
and now I am again able to do all my
work as well as ever before. I am ad
vising everybody to order it at once
and keep it on hand." Triner's Lini

pains, stiff joints, etc. 25c and 50c at
