Nowlin, so favorably known here as an instructor in the Teachers' institutes of 1891 and '95 has been elected to and accepted a position in the High school of Kansas City, Mo., at a greatly o advanced sal ary. Kansas loses the labors of one of its best teachers, but the state will still claim his residence. The latter fact, coupled with the missionary spirit which we feel toward every worthy cause, prompts us to forgive the Professor for his partial desertion. Six or eight years ago Governor Mor rill's son, who is now at Harvard, went to a creek near Hiawatha and caught a dozen or more fish. They were too small to eat, so he preserved them alive and threw them into a pasture pond on the home place. Little at tention was paid to them until a few weeks ago the Governor had the pond seined and found several hundred fish. Some were large enough to eat. He put them back into the waterrand the pond has been a regular source of supply for the table ever since. Ex. The Hutchinson Interior-Herald of last Saturday contained the following: Iowa has an editor who has never put the word "doctor" in his paper. He solicited the physicians of his town for cards and they told him it was very unprofessional for physicians to advertise to the extent even of a word. The editor was touched by their devotion to a professional prin ciple. "I cannot," he said, "prefix the abbreviation 'Dr.' to your name with out advertising jour profession." I cannot think of hurting your feelings. And that day Dr. John Smith became simply John Smith. It is predicted that before many years the sunflower will come into general cultivation in this country. As a plant it has no superior for vigor, rapid growth and prolific yield of seed, leaves and stalk, all of which can be utilized. The seeds are espec ially good as food for fowls, and when mixed with grains they are relished by all farm animals. Fifty bushels of seed to the acre is a fair yield, and this will produce fifty gallons of oil worth $1 per gallon. In China a val uable fiber, used' in silk weaving, is obtained from the stalks, and they are of service as fuel and a source of potash. The Orientals mix their to bacco with cured sunflowers grown siotously in Kansas and stands all ex tremes of weather well. Plainly, it is one of nature's gifts, but as yet unap preciated. Gt.

I wish to invite your attention to the work of the State Pupils' Reading Circle. For several years past an an nual selection of books has been made by a committee of county superin tendents appointed for that purpose and a systematic effort made to en roll the young people as members of the State Reading circle. By means of this state supervision and control the work can be made more uniform and systematic andthe cost of thebooks is much reduced. To become a mem ber of the circle means simply to get the books and read them. The books may be owned by the school collect ively at public expense or they may become the property of private indi viduals either within or outside the school, the object being merely to make the books accessible. The books selected for 1895-96 com prise thirty volumes which, bound in heavy boards, will be sent to any ad dress, freight prepaid, for only $10 cash. The same thirty volumes, in cloth binding, will cost only $12.50, half sets in either binding at propor tionate prices. These thirty books include works on geography, history, travels, litera ture, etc., and are suitably graded for pupils of the second to the fifth reader classes and many of them will be found interesting and instructive to both teachers and parents as well as pupils. The character of the books and class of subjects treated are in line with the regular text books and their perusal will ably supplement the work of the teacher, greatly assist her in keeping order, create greater interest in the school, promote punct ual and regular attendance, as well as increase the general intelligence of the pupils and others. I am sure no argument is necessary to convince the people of Trego county of the im portance of placing good, instructive reading matter within reach of our children before they have acquired a taste for the trashy, sensational or even vicious literature so common. I have no doubt every district of the county will want these books, but the question of how to pay for them will need answering. The state su perintendent says the district board has the undoubted right to purchase them at public expense. This is the easiest and probably, the fairest way. I hardly think it the best plan for some" reasons. If the pupils are al lowed to contribute toward the ex pense they will have a proprietary in terest in thebooks, will be more likely to read them and take better care of them. A school exhibition or enter tainment may be given for the pur pose of raising a part or all of the cost. A committee of older pupils may solicit subscriptions from teacher, pupils and parents. Suppers or socials may be given. I am sending circular letters to teachers and others describ ing the books and suggesting plans for raising the money. After you have tried these no doubt district boards will assist in raising the few dollars you may need to complete the fund. After you have secured the books you must have a place to keep them. A box nailed to the wall and provided with a door or curtain will suffice dur ing the school year and the books may then be taken to a private house for safe keeping. The books should be named (name of district) and num bered and the teacher should provide or be provided with a small blank or memorandum book a page of which should be devoted to each volume by number. On this page record the name of each pupil who has read the book named at the top of the page. Hand this book to succeeding teach ers until all books have been read by all pupils although intended for one year's work only. To get pupils and parents interest ed in the books let the teacher read an interesting selection from some of them every day. One or more com plete volumes may be read this way during the term. Let the teacher show pupils how the books will assist them in the preparation of the regu lar lessons. If these books are not read and properly cared for you will not be able to put any more library books into that school and a failure will be largely the fault of the teacher. Teachers and superintendents have no financial interest in these books. They urge their purchase and use as a public and professional duty and ask the assistance of parents and school officers. Pupils, parents, teacher and officers are invited to call at the office of the county superintendtnt and examine the sample set of books. These books may be ordered by the superintendent. He can arrange to give some time on payment if desired. You should have the books as soon as possible. Begin now. I am ready to assist. A. S. Peacock, County Supt. Wa-Keeney, Kan., Sept. 23, 1895.
