ally large, and the crop is now in exceed
ingly fine condition. The wet weather
in the southeastern portion of the state,
together with the high temperature, waa
not so favorable for corn. Husking was
retarded and in the areas of heaviest
rainfall an unusually large number of
moldy and rotten ears were found when
the corn was gathered. Conditions have
been favorable generally for fall plowing.
The pastures continued good during the
month. No damage resulted from the
killing frosts, ss practically all vegeta
tion waa matured before the occurrence
of a severe frost."
A Jourhai. reader is inclined to
question a practice of city teachers in
their markings ss to "deportment" and
"application." being of the opinion that,
on a basis of 100 for perfection, a pupil
marked 100 in "application," could not
justly be rated so low ss 60 in "deport
ment." He calls attention to the fol
lowing paragraph in the Lincoln Jour
nal of Friday:
The secretary of the navy dismissed a
cadet at Annapolis last week for copy
ing the theme of another student and
saying it waa hia own. Fifty-six mem
bers of his clsss who petitioned the sec
retary to pardon the- "gouger," aa he ia
called ia cadet parlance, were all placed
on the "third conduct grade" for their
pains. This means that they will have
"liberty" bat once in four weeks. The
moral effect of such discipline will
doubtless he plainly visible hereafter.
To tell the tenth is the first requirement
either in the army or navy.
It may be remarked that the military
ia more strict than the civil, and the de
gree of aaverity which is perhaps very
necessary in the "regular" asrvice,would
not be acceptable to the volunteer ser
vice, aad would not be tolerated in our
ordinary public schools. Doubtless the
ruling principle with them is: the larg
est liberty, onanist ant with the average
public opinion of the community.. The
secretary of the navy, in the ease cited,
dismissed a pupil for "copying," and
reprimanded fifty-six others for asking
pardon for the one. Bnt in civil life,
yon cannot he quite so strict sa that
the teaareof osaesof the ruler of the
school-room is too uncertain aad
