Dessie Elliott, which, like the musical

Greatly did he regret, he was unable

Mr. Ferguson urged that special atten

Srbwil noil Montr.
A school, said Mr. Ferguson, should
not have an opposite effect uxm the
pupil to that of the home. Such, how
ever, lie asset ted was too oiltn tne
case. The reason is that many school
houses' have nothing to appeal to the
sense of beauty: nothing to attract.
There should be pictures on the walls.
One director in this county recently
forbade a teacher's hanging pictures
in the school. He said f the pupils
needed pictures to look at they would

The subject of agriculture in coun
try' schools was brought up by the s:i
H riniend. nt as a means of explaining J
the part he look in recommending to
the directors of the county a system of
books and apparatus that has been se
cured since by many directors in the
county. Mr. F rguson argued to show
1'iat a system of cultivating the sense
of observation ii pupils, such as the
work he recommended comprehends,
is the only way In which agriculture
can be taught in a practical way in
the tx-hfjols. As a sample of the appar
ently unimportant things that the
young should be taught to observe, Mr.
Ferguson cited the case of the bumble
Ikv which is necessary to the growth
of clover seed, as every" wideawake
farmer now knows, but which was un
til recently regarded as an enemy to
mankind to be killed on sight.
Not KrponIhl- for AfcrntM.
The system in quosiion was simple
and easily applied in an effective man
ner by any t.acixr f average intelli
gence. For t :e r.:etVds employed by
I any agent in s o'ic.tlng yalea Mr. Fer
jguson stated l.e wa. not responsible.
J He had mad- the recommendation and
he stood by it. He was as liable as
! anyone to make 'Mistakes, but he be
ll ieved he was right in this case and
he had nothing to conceal.
A iiun;!jtr by a young Lilies" chorus
was givtn and encored. Then there
was a vocal duet by Mrs. A. J. Miller
and Miss Sara RiehanLon. which prov

Prof. E. S. Kindley was next pre
sented and pave a short talk on the
value of an education and the advisa
bility of keeping children on the farm.
A vocal rolo by Mrs. Miller was fol
lowed by an instrumental solo by Miss
Anna Harri.-. which closed the evening
lrof. Craar'n I'aprr.
Yeseday morning's paper by Prof.
Fred H. Crane f the state tniveruty
at Urbana on "Farm Mechanics" ably
presented one of the many depart
ments in which a farmer should pos
sess a degree of knowledge in order
to make the bezi of his opiorl unities.
The professor pointed out that a
knowledge of machinery is essential
to success. The proper care of ma
chinery which receives so little at
tention by many, was shown to be the
twang r.f greatly prolonging Its period
of usefulness anJ thereby effect a
saving in this important item of ex
pense. Greatest interest was taken
in charts that the speaker exhibited
showing parts of binders and other
J complicated! farm machines and show
ing the use of each and the manner of
obtaining the proper adjustment.
"Soil Fertility" was the topic of
Prof. II. Pettit of the University of
Illinois In the afternoon. The manner
in which the money appropriated by
the state for the purpose Is being ex
pended in examination of the
soil In the various 1 calitie3
was diseusseJ. This work wis
begun three years ego and is still in
progress. Samples of earth to a depth
of 4 inches is analyzed and the crop
which it Is fitted to grow are ascer
tained. Prof. Pettit showed a map of
i the state indicating what has been zc
jcomplisfced In this direction. Attr
ition was paid to the nature of Rock
J Island county's soil. Ttere are three
distinct classes, tne . gpeaner said.
i certificates for $1,500, to raise the age
limits of the membership from 18 to 45
years, the present limit, to 1C to 52
years, and also permitting members
who became members prior to July 1.
1903. to reduce the amount of their
certificates without cost. There were
present 1C5 delegates, representing 14
states and a membership of 73.000.
Corn is the crop best adapted to
growth in all thre.
Prof. Pettit illustrated very aptly
the importance of growing as large
crops as possible. He showed that 20
bushels of corn per acre does not pay
for the labor, taxes and other ex
penses connected with farming. A
crop of 40 bushels per acre will pay
five per cent on a valuation of $so per
acre. A crop of 00 bushels pays tin-
same per cent on a valuation of S 1 7-
per acre, while a crop of So bushels
pays the same profits on land worth
Will Inrrrane Yield.
Very often, the professor stated, the
supplying of an inexpensive fertilizer
will vastly increase the yield. Atten
tlon was given to the necessity of
rotating crops to prevent ultimate soil
