Senate File No. 27
This bill, Senator Hummel informs
us, has become a law. It may prove a
very important measure to Red Cloud,
if the city puta itself in an attitude to
realize its advantages.
The bill provides for state aid to
high schools of the proper equipment
for the conduct of courses in floricul
ture, manual training and home
economics, to the extent of half the
expense of conducting such depart
ment, not to exceed, however, the sum
of 11250 per year.
Not more than thirty high schools
shall receive this aid during the years
1013 and 1014.
To avail ourselves of this advantage,
this district must incur an additional
expenditure of perhaps twenty dollars
per mouth, because we are already ex
pending nearly two hundred dollars a
month in this direction. We must
also have n five acre tract of agricul
tural land within two miles of the
school house upon which agricultural
experiments may be carried on.
Professor Moritz has received eu
couraging replies as to the probability
of Bed Cloud's selection as one of these
Should the city schools meet the re
quirements of the law and win the
selection of the state superintendent,
it need not be long ere the schools
take a high rank in these courses,
sufficient to increase the high school
attendance to four or five hundred,
and make this city the centre of a
practical education for a large exient
of territory. In these days of auto
mobiles when a score or two of miles
is but a trifling distance, with such
facilities offered to the youth of the
cuunty and the adjacent ones, there
will be a stimulus to the trade and
growth of the city ttiat we can noi
Every boy or girl who comes here
for his education brings his parents
for trade and business.
In dreaming of railways that do not
come, we have overlooked the drawing
power of the educatioual facilities
which arc in our power to furnish.
For the tlrst time in the history of
the district we have a superintendent
who has exhibited murUed ability in
his mauugement of subordinate teach
ers, aud the pupils, combined with
faculty of impressing fuvorably any
gathering of the business men aud
scholars of the community. He 1ms
united with these qualities mi alert
ness in perceiving oppoituuities for
the development of the school and n
readiness to sieze aud make ue of all
the iiie:m- at hand to further the ro
gress of thu school's etllcieiiey.

Your Soil Is Alive
; O all intents and purposes, soil is
alive. It breathes, works, rests; it
drinks, and, most important of all,
it feeds. It responds to good or bad
treatment. It pays its debts with
interest many times compounded. Being alive,
to work it must be fed. During the non-growing
seasons certain chemical changes take place
which make the fertility in the soil available
for next season's crop. But this process adds
no plant food to the soil. Unless plant food is
added to soil on which crops are grown, in
time it starves. There is one best way to feed
your soil. Stable manure, which contains all
the essentials of plant life, should be spread
evenly and in the proper quantity with an
I H C Manure Spreader
I H C manure spreaders are made in all styles
and sizes. There are low machines which are
not too low, but can be used in mud and deep
snow, or in sloppy barnyards. They are made
with either endless or reverse aprons. Frames
are made of steel, braced and trussed like a steel
bridge. Sizes run from small, narrow machines
to machines of large capacity. The rear axle t
is placed well under the box, where it carries
over 70 per cent of the load, insuring plenty of
tractive power. Beaters are of large diameter
to prevent winding. The teeth are square and
chisel-pointed. The apron drive controls the
load, insuring even spreading whether the ma
chine is working up or down hill, or on the
level. IHC spreaders have a rear axle differ
ential, enabling them to spread evenly when

Where It Hurts
See the Good Year Casings and Tubes before you
buy. We handle all sizes and carry a large stock.
You want to remember that the Good Year people
made a reduction on the 1st of April of 10 per cent on
all of their castings and tubes. . It is not very often that
a Good Year casing or tube goes wrong, but when you
do you will find their adjustment very satisfactory.
We also carry a good stock of Presto Tanks for ex
change and can show you the famous Presto Inflator,
which can inflate your tires for you with less work and
very little expense.
