with Vim und Enthusiasm.
Superintendent of Education (5eo.
L. Pitts has issued the following let
ter to the hoys who intend joining the
Corn Club this year:
Two years ago the Hoy's Corn Club
wub organized in Laurons county. The
first year f. '.arge number of buys en-,
tered the club and made good reports.
The highest yield of the llrst year was
97 bushels. The second year a great
er number of boys entered tho club
and made good reports. The greatest
yeld was 109 bushels. The Boys' Club
has stimulated a great Interest over
the county on tho subject of corn
growing, and has already done a won
derful amount of good.
This year wo are organizing anoth
er club. Simple pledges for boys who
desire to join are being sent to the
teachers of tho county. Any school
boy Is allowed to Join. There is, nor
will be no membership fee. All you
have to do Is to fill out the paper
which your teacher will give you and
sond it to tho County Superintendent
of Education and you are enrolled as
a member. If your teacher cannot
supply you with the pledge blank
write me for it. or come to my office.
Each boy is to "nlect his acre of land,
which may bo i her bottom or upland.
He selects bis n seed corn, and us
es such quality and quantity of fer
tilizer as he thinks best. Many nice
prizes will ho given again to those
making tho highest yields, best ten
oars, live ears, and single car. The
County Corn Show will very likely be
held in connection with the County
Fair again this fall. Last year the
County Fair was rather early and
some of the boys had not gathered
their corn. Groator precaution will be
taken this time that this may not oc
cur again. The names of tho mem
bers will be sent to Washington and
they will receive free much tine lit
erature on the culture of corn and
Other farm products.
The National Corn Show will be held
this year in Columbia and it is hoped
that our Stuto will make a good show
ing and carry off her part of the many
prizes to be offered. And Laurcns
county must tako the lead in this.
Any boy who desires to join the club
should get one of the blanks either
from his teacher or my ollice and fill
it out and send to me and he becomes
a member. Those who mean to join
the club are urged to send in their
names at once.

Reade, Balzac and Sue Puffed Their

not above writing tluir own puffs, a
writer In the Bohemian says, Charles
Rende wrote a long article on himself
for Once a Week. In which he said:
"It is impossible to speak too high
ly of 'The Cloister and the Hearth.'
It is one of the most scholarlike and
learned as well as one of the most
artistic and beautiful works of tlctlon
In any language. Read him. Resign
yourself to the magic spell of his ge
nius. The effect of 'Foul Play' 1b
perfectly marvelous. It leaves the
stories of every other sensational writ
er far behind."
Nor was Balzac In France above
praising his own works. "If you have
not been born a story teller," he wrote
in a review, "you will never obtain
the popularity of M. de Balzac. And
what a story teller! What nerve and
wit! How *he world is dissected by
this man! What passion and cool
But the height of literary advertise
ment In the first half of the last cen
tury waB reached In the cbbo of Eu
gene Sue's famous novel, "The Wan
dering Jew." Every little while the
daily installment In the newspaper In
which it was appearing would be
missing, and In Its place would be an
announcement that M. Sue was suffer
ing from a Blight indisposition and
readers would be obliged to wait 48
nours for new developments of tho
narrative. "And all the while Sue
himself was industriously abetting tho
publishers by posing overdressed and
With spurs in his boots at tho Cafe
de Paris In an attitude of deepest ab
straction, as If wondering what the
next installment would be about."
