The sale of Hampshire hogs by
the Pollard brothers, which was
: held at their farm last Saturday,
: was one which attracted much at
! tention and at which a large num
: ber of fine individual were dis-
posed of. The interest in the sale
did not stop with the disposal of
j the last animal which was offered
. for following the sale a number of

i mals for their herds at private sale
and again the buyers resold some
(of Iheih purchases, which evinces!

The County Fair a Success
Everybody who have attended the
Cass county fair from all over the
county came back with the satis
faction of knowing that the exhibit
is above the average and that -they
have some of the best displays not
alone in stock but in every line
which it is expected that exhibits
i would come from. The school exhi-
bit as well as the home is well re
presented and it looks like the
stock portion could not be bettered
anyway. We will have more to say
regarding the exhibits personally.
Does Not Look That Way
The Chautauqua matter is one of
considerable perplexity these days
when they do not pay out. The one
held at Nehawka was a success last
which came out behind has in aj
manner deterred the people of thisi
place from taking hold of the mat-;
ter with much interest. Mrs. Crane1
representing the White-Meyers Co., '
which gave a course here last year, f
was in town last week but met
with little encouragemest. The con
ditions are perplexing when one
company has been doing a town,
they by the ruses of the companies
agreement are entitled to the field
the following year. That means if
Nehawkaa does not sign up with
the White-Meyers people they can-j
not have some one else for the ccm-i
ing year, but must wait fo.- anoth
er year until they can make a con
tract with another company.

keep from eating it up.
Thursday afternoon, September 27
the 5 and 6 grades took a nature
study hike and at the same time
had a wienner roast. A number of
interesting specimens were secured
and -will be used for various lan
guage and drawing lessons during
the remainder of this .week. The
little folks enjoyed the wienner
roast as little folks usually do, to
say nothing of the toasted marsh
mallows. The Crops and Soils class has
been gathering seed the last few
days. It is planned to test this corn
out this winter, most of the boys
will use it in planting their pro
ject plot. One interesting part of it
is the collecting enough corn from
prolific plants to plant one tow
thru their plot, the plant must have
at least two good sized ears to be
eligible. The ears on the plants on
this row will then be counted next
fall to see if anv has been made in

library as many good books as pos
sible. This should be of especial in
