We have been enjoying the plenty the past year and we sbouldsee to it that we save some for times of less pros perity. '"'.. If you have not started your savings account now is the time to commence.

' . , .rutM Teachers' Column By County Superintendent and Teacher . "Keep sti! When trouble, is brew ing keepti. ' When sour- feelings are hurt keep - still, till you recover from your excitement at any rate. Things look' differently through an unagitated eye. In a commotion once I wrote a letter, and sent it, and wished I had not. In my later years I had another commotion, and wrote a long letter; but life had rub toed a little sense into me, and I kept that letter in my pocket against the 3ay when I could look, it over with out agitation and without tears. I was glad I did. Time works wonders. Wait till you can speak calmly, and then you will not need to speak, may be. Silence is the most massive thing conceivable sometimes. It is strength in its very' grandeur: It is like a regiment ordered to stand still in the mad fury of battle. To plunge in were twice as easy." Dr. Burl on. Four teachers wrote the examina tion last Friday and Saturday, one for a first grade certificate and three for second grade. All were successful, Miss Greeuwood receiving the- first grade and Messrs. Doane, O'Toole and Kirby the second grades. - Miss Greenwood has the honor of holding the highest first grade certifi cate now in force in the county. However Miss Julia Rinker, who now is in the government employ in the schools of Nevada,, still has the distinction of getting the best first grade certificate granted in Trego county. In her last examination, taken five years ago, her grades averaged 96 8-15. She -was then just a young teacher with barely sufficient experience in teaching necessary to be granted the certificate. George Kirby and" Albert O'Toole are doing their first year's work in teaching and so are barred from get ting a first -grade certificate though their grades are "first grades." They are both graduates from ' the '.college course of our high schoof." Mr.- Dome s High school and college credits entitle him to a state certificate his second grade simply, tides him' over the time until-?-our :. legislature : eoatnletes strengthening put our preset xangled state certificate regulations. JSow, out of the 59 teachers em ployed in the. common schools of the county, but four hold third grade certificate and two of these are from other counties. Trego county ranks "Excellent" in the qualifications of its teachers. Three years , ago 27 of the home, teachers were holders of third grade certificates majority of them being young boys and girls j ust .starting out in the profession. .The average age of our teachers is iess than last year and the ear before showing conclusively j that teachers Kansas.

Al Winchester of the Wa-Keeney schools and Miss Lucy A, Boice, secretary of the county asso ciation are succeeding in getting good musical numbers from among the pupils for the county contest. An all day program has been planned. We notice that in the last month's report of the primary room in the Ogaliah school the enrollment, atten dance and tardiness were omitted. This was not the faulv of the editor but that of the county superinten dent, who in copying the reports for the paper in some way overlooked these items. The complete report is published this week. ; There will be no "Teachers'- Col umn" for several issue of the paper. The county superintendent wishes to spend several weeks' in the country studying school conditions, taking census of prospective graduates, selecting places and teachers, for holding diploma examinations, etc., etc. School reports will be published as usual as soon as all schools com plete the month's work, : TEACHER'S REPORT (Continued from Ust week) District No a.

Slow and weak, were word used to describe cattle market here today. In the case of stockers and feeders "demoralized" was sometime substituted. Foot and mouth dis ease at Eastern markets, quarantines established in Southern Kansas coun ties, and action of Oklahoma in quar antining against all ..cattle except from Texas and New Mexico, have unsettled the trade this week. Bad? beef outlet is given as reason for low er bids from both packers and order buyers. Some heavy native steers sold at $8.60 to-day, choice quality and "finish, good steers at $7.70 med ium and low grade steers at $6.50 to $7.50, medium.. cows $5.75 to $6.25,. good to choice cows $6.50 to $7 00 J lowing 22000 yesterday. Yesterday's run was heaviest for any day in Feb ruary on record here. Quarantine) receipts are almost a minus quantity 3 cars to-day, 37 cars yesterday, steers at $5.75 to $7.00. Kansas has been taking three fourths of the stocker and feeders . from here for two months, but buyers have shut off orders to-day, pending outcome of foot and mouth cases in Southern Kansas. : Other country buyers are cautious, and the stocker and feeder trade is at a standstill. The w holer cattle trade is in a precarious stater and commission men are advising against hurrying cattle to market. Hog trade took a new impetus to day, most sales 10 higher, some of the closing sales 15 higher. A long list of sales were -made at $6.90, which. figure was the top price till late, when $6.95 was paid, practically everything selling within the range of 10 cents. ..Receipts to-day were 21000 head, following the same num ber Monday. Packers here continua to bring in train loads of hogs from surrounding markets, bought at low er prices than are being paid here. UFresh pork is selling at a price low enough to make it popular, and liber runs of hogs can be handled around present prices. . ' s Sheep and laorbs advanced to to2( ; cents today, and 10 to 15 cents . yes-' terday, which puts prices 40 to SO cents above a week ago.' Early sales of choice lambs were made at $8.85 and $8.90 today, late sales reached $8.95, medium ewes $6.25, choice ewes , worth $6.50, yearling $7.70. Receipts are running light at all the markets and must so continue till Northern Colorado gets to moving good, a week or two hence, and even then the sup ply cannot become burdensome here. J. A. Rickart, Market Correspondent. LOST Liberal reward will be paid for the return of "Laddie", six months old Scotch Collie, sable with white ruff-. Adv. Ray R. Ukfokd.
