The meeting of the Rock Island coun
ty Farmers' Institute at Barstow jester
day was one of the most successful, both
in point of attendance, and interest man
ifested, of the winter series. The insti
tute assembled at 10 a. m. and was open
ed with prayer by Rav. J. Q Adams, fol
lowed by music and an address ef wel
come by Dr. John Reiter. rresid.'ntj.
G. Osborne made fitting response when
the subiect, "The Object of the Farmer'
Institute and How it may Benefit the
People." was taken up in an interesting
paper by Louis Jahns, followed by a dis
cussion which censumed the remainder
of the morning session.
Ia the aft rnoon after music. County
Supt. C. B. Marshall delivered a schol
arly address on the Public Schools,
which was devoted chiefly to the district
school, and the recommendation was made
that a district high school be provided .
Mr. Marshall did not think that Rock Isl
and county was quite ready for such an
inovation, although the experiment had
been made with satisfactory results in
several of the other counties in the state.
The county superintendent has been giv
ing considerable study to the subject and
proposes to look into the practical work
ing of the district high school, and he
merely threw out the suggestion that it
might be taken into the homes ot the
country and there discussed.
There was a musical selection followed
by a paper on "Fruit Culture" by NT. K.
Fluke and one on Small Fruit" by Eli
Corbin, both of which were entertain
ingly discussed and thus concluded the
Toesubj?ct of perm toent roads was
brought up aad discussed at length, the
drift of the opinion bein tb.it the permas
nent road is too expensive a mif.er to
be considered at the present time.
A suggestion was made that if the
Farmers' institute was allied to the
Farmers' Alliance or F. M. B. A. it
would be more of a success, bat such an
idea did not meet with the aDorobatirn
of the prevailicg sentiment of the insti
tute, which is formed entirely for social
and instructive purposes, and from which
politics haye been entirely eliminated.
In the evening excellent papers were
read by Fred Oiborne on "Is Clover a
Profitable Cropf and S. W. Heath en
"Home Attractions on the Farm." All
entered into the spirit of the discussion
which followed, and in the
which many eicellent suggestions and
ideas were thrown out.
The members of the institute are pro
fuse in their praise of the hospitality of
the people of Birstow.

Mr. Roberts is not the only one who
finds "Blush of Roses" deliehtful. as
many ladies and gentlemen can testify,
who have purchased it from T. H.Thomu.
Nothing tries the patience of a man
more than to listen to a hacking couh,

or sales of Hood's Sarsaparilla.
Beautiful fitters, all sizes, all widths;
Low In Price.
The marked benefit which people In nn
down or weakened state of health derive
from Hood's Sarsaparilla, conclusively proves
the claim that this medicine " makes the weak
strong." It dues nut act like a stimulant,
imparting fictitious strength from which there
must follow a reaction of greater weakness
than before, but in ttie most natural way
Hood's Sarsaparilla overcomes that tired feel
ing, creates an appetite, purifies the blood,
and, la short, gives great bodily, nerve,
meutal and digestive strength.
"Last spring I was completely fagged out.
My strength left me and I felt sick and mis
erable all the time, so that I could hardly
attend to my business. 1 took one bottle of
Hood's Sarsaparilla, and it cured me. There
Is nothing like it.' It. C. Begole, Editor

'I derived very much benefit front Hood's
Sarsaparilla, wlilch I took for general debility.

parilla do not be induced to buy anything else
instead. Insist upon having
