All tiata was collected and the county tuperintendent had some surprising and interesting data concerning the social conditions of the county. The following represents the social condi tions of the county: name of farmer, owner or tenant, length of time on farm, size of farm, number and kind of modern machinery, barns and equipment, and silos; whether or not the farm homes were supp'ied with such conveniences as running water, hot and cold, hard and soft; bath room, laundry room; power washer; telephone, lighting system; screened in porch; ice bos; septic tank; vac uum cleaner; sewing machine; piano; gasoline or oil stove; typewriter; and other data. Would not such a survey furnish a means for our teachers as well as the students to become acquainted with the community? LOSS FROM HOG CHOLERA Hog cholera caused a loss of seven ty millions of dollars in the United States during 1913. The resulting loss of pork is estimated to be over one hundred milMons. Iowa was the heaviest loser, having lost two million hogs or two-sevenths of the entire loss for the year. The loss in Ohio was fortunately less than of Iowa. No doubt this loss of hogs and pork has had its effect in forcing the price of pork upwards, thus the consuming public suffers from the loss but . the producers' loss is not reduced in any way. It is, therefore, as much to the advantage of the consuming public as of the producer to have such diseases successfully combatted even at public expense. GOVERNMENT CATS The United States government an nually emp'oyes several cats and ex pends about $18.50 yearly for each pussy. This sum is used largely for purchasing meat and milk as food for the cats. The cats are used in all large commissary depots and by the Post Office Department. The latter department of the government keeps more than 400 cats. The New York postoffice alone expends more than $60 annually for cat meat and the postal authorities consider the money well spent.

J the tenets of Christian i were good enough and life, Mr. and Lafayette believed in that they ie too good to ba used in every-day i.fe. He read much and thought deeply on 1 subjects relating to his life work." As a farmer he was progressive far in i advance of the years in which he worked. Another life that snans the years . that reach from the sickle to the self j binder, from th ox-cart to the auto I mobile, from th ?andle to the electric ,globe, is closed quiet, courteous, .Christian gent! .i, who stood erect among men, is gone.

Stoddard, conducted by Rev. H; S. Fritsch. Interment was at Spring Grove cemetery. The oakes upon which the mistletoe grew were sacred , to the Druids in days of old and they used to worship under them in the most solemn and devout way. When hung up in a room or hall the beautiful pearly berries were thought to possess the powers of keeping away evil spirits and influences.
