You have Mr. Jess Woods to thank

that was not tho ensc. 1 very

D. W. IXJNO,
Dear Sir; I am going to tall you
how our yard got but of weeds. It
had been raining so much that tho
weeds grow fast and thick. Our
teacher kept telling the lower grades
to help fis by pulling the weeds while
the weeds wero small and easy to pull
out and not leave them until they
wcro big nnd very hard to pull; but
somo of thQ children tried to get out
of doing so, by staying out on tho
road to play until nine o'clock. So
the teacher made a rule that every
child In our school from tho smallest
to tho biggest was to pull 100 weeds
evory day. Tho Httlo children to
pull tho small weeds and the big chil
dren to pull tho big weeds. They are
to pull them at nny time, only show
them to the teacher beforo they go
In about a week tho yard was al
most out of weeds. When a child has
about 100 weeds she takes them to
her own teacher to bo counted and
K she has 100 weeds the teacher
count tho weeds they choose a big
would send her to play or exercise.
When tho teachers are too bus to
boy or a girl to help count the weeds.
Ono day a big boy tried to fool tho
teacher, but she was smart. She
know tho boy did not pull tho weeds.
A Httlo boy had dono tho work for
tho lazy boy. Tho teacher punished
him by making him pull 300 moio
weeds. I can pull n hundred weeds
In four minutes. I can't think or
anything else, so I must closo my let
