" The School Fair.
School fiiirs arc to he held this
fill! in several counties in Ken
tucky. In most instances they
are to he held in connection with
the distribution, of prizes for the
hoys' corn cluhs. The idea is a
good one, and thecounty school
fairs should increase in number.
W.ith the proper effort a school
fair could he held in every coun
ty, and would he of great, benefit
in increasing interest in educa
tional work, both among pupils
and patrons. There is no doubt
that the pupils of the schools will
supply the competitive exhibits,
provided they receive the proper
encouragement. These exhibits
of wiitten work, maps, drawings
and the like are interesting to
old and young, and the county
school fair also oilers opportuni
ty for the display of a variety of
the products of youthful indus
try and ingenuity. It. is possible
to arrange a most elaborate pro
gramme of instructing and en.
tertaining features which will
appeal strongly to popular sup
port. In fact, if the superin
tendents, the teachers, the trurt
' ecs and the patrons will provide
the ways and means and hang up
the prizes the school children
may be depended upon to supply
the material for the fair in abun
The county school fair, no
doubt, will be made a perma
nent organization in some of
. nuea i--iiimr W'B in u'lmtii run ovni.
DiTions or tne present year are
notably successful. It should be
possible to improve upon the
fair from year to year and to
make it a factor of nosniiill pow
er in the progress and develop
ment of the rural schools In
most of the counties where boys'
corn clubs were organized hist
spring the reports of the progress
made have been favorable. The
interest in the corn contests lias
increased noticeably and in all
probability the same will be the
case with the school fairs.

Sowing More Whcit. I
Many of our farmers are sow-!
. . ...... . i
ing wlieat tins tail who have
I not for years before sow n any.
i There is an understanding be-'
'tween them that they or some'
one of them will buy a thresher
next year to thresh it. More,
wheat crops and less corn '
in some instances would be of,
great help to some farmers w ho
are now raising no other crop
but corn. The one crop system
will run down any farm to where
to operate it is a loss of time, I
money and labor. The slogan is,
we must diversify our crops and
build up our land.
