COUNTY SCHOOL NOTES
(By Stella Ducker County Supt.)
Any one that has not had satis-
fact'on in their leports from the
eighth grade exnm'naticn should send
In their complaint before the last of
July as the papers will not bo kept
after thr.t date. The papeid will bo
here to be seen if any one cares to
see them but will not be sent out of
Any exhibit woik good enough for
the State Fair or any of the other
fairs should be sent in dur'ng the
month of July. If it can be brought
by some member of the scliool, It
will save expense. I. have some very
nice maps that I will give to any
schools that will call for them when
they happen to be in Red Cloud.
These maps are about three and one
half by five and one half feet and
would cost pei haps tluee or four
dollars. These will make it seem
worth while to bring 'n the exhibit

In the granting of teachers' cer
tificates the county superintendent
has to abide by the law. She cannot
grant certificates to espec'al friends
that have not the credentials, nor can
she lefuse a certificate to her worst
enemy provided that enemy has the
lcquisitcs. Law is law, and any one
not obeying the law can be made to
come within ' s requirements.
In the matter of hiring the teach
ei", the directors try to please the
people but too often the people say
nothing about their wishes before
the teacher is hired but come in
strong in their criticism after the
thing is done. Th:s year there are
a great many teachers. Some time
ago I spoke of finding out about
whom you hired. The teacher should
have good grades, but that i3 onry
half of the essentials the teacher
must also be able to give this
knowledge to the children and to keep
them in such an attitude that they can
receive it. Without good government
the school is only fifty per cent effi
cient. Take care before you hire a teacher,
after she is hired there is nothing
to do but make the best out of what
you have. The community often
makes or mars a teacher. It seems
queer too that a community will pay
good money to a teacher that they
use all their influences to cheapen
to their children that they will leave
no means undone to lessen her in
fluence and then standby her and
help her in every way possible for
the whole nine months, so that you
will get your money's worth as near
ly as she is able to give it.
If you have anything against her
don't tell your children, tell her kind
ly and watch her mend her ways. She
wants to succeed she wants to please
The county superintendent does not
dictate whom you shall hire nor how
much you shall pay. Often when the
teacher is not all you wish it Is a
matter of expense. It la not a good
plnn to bo too saving at the expense
'of your children's time but still now
nnd then, one must save and it is
well to remember that you don't often
get more than you pay for.

FARM BUREAU NOTES
(By County Extension Agent, Henry
From'd'ffeient sources our atten
tion is called to activity of concerns
that presume to broadcast purebred
sows on a contract that looks im
practical and cannot be of lasting
benefit to the livestock business. An
agricultural agent, in writing to us
about the plan says:
"I don't think mucli of the hog
gillliuiiilli Ollltllic mi.v i. .j ! v.-w.'w i
down here last winter. The contract
to do something only, if they want to.
They put in very common class stuff
here. I b lieve they are about done
here. Hope you can knock It out up
This agent, who lives in Kansas,
refers to a plan of selling bred sows. J
The promoter sells bred sows at $145
per head and agrees to buy back two (
gilts from each sow for $150. In turn
he proposes to resell these gilts at
$145 each, and the scheme goes on
We are not in a position to pro

parties to their contract. However,
this proposition affects an industry
in which we have been schooled for
many years, and we can say em
phatically that it is impract'cal.

react later to the discredit of the
