Teachers’ Institute.
The Couuty Teachers’ Association
and the County Institute an* hereby
called to meet at the school house in
Mena on December 30 and 31 All
teachers and directors are urged to
attend. All others interested in edu
cational matters are cordially invited.
YV. M. Pipkin.
County Examiner.
The following letter from the state
superintendent to the couuty examin
er is self explanatory:
Little Rock, Ark. Dec. 9, 1897,
To The County Examiner:
1 send you to-day by express to
Mena copies of the school law for each
district in your county. You will
please deliver one copy to one director
in each district and obtain his receipt
therefor in both of the receipt books
sent to you herewith. YVhen you
have obtained the receipt from each
district in both books, you will please
return one to this office, retaining one
in your office. YVe will in this wa v be
enabled to place a check upon the
distribution and care of these laws.
The law limits the number of copies
that this office may have printed to
5,000 per annum, about one to four
school officers and teachers. YY e are
therefore forced to place a greater re
striction upon their distribution. Re
mind your directors that a copy should
last a district for many years, and
that a copy’s being more than two
years old does not render it valueless.
I earnestly ask your co-operation in
this effort to preserve from waste the
state's property.
Very truly yours.
Junius Jordan, Supt.
It will be seen from the above that
the county examiner is not furnished
copies of the sehool law for general
distribution; miscellaneous requests
cannot, therefore be granted. Direct
ors will please call for their copies at
f'nt-ir earliest convenience us it. is
manifestly impossible for the examin
er to send the receipt books, there
being only two, to each of the seventy
districts iu Vue county and complete
the work in a reasonable time.
\V. M. Pipkin,
County Examiuer.

Over-feeding and crowding are tw<
potent causes of empty egg baskets.
If you have many hens divide then
into two or more flocks. Small flock
do much better than large ones.
A farmer’s daughter can pay he
way through college with the produc
of a fair sized poultry yard, and if shi
is ambitious aud really cares for ai
education, she will do it.
Hens like a variety of food, t hangi
the diet frequently. Send the tabli
scraps to the chicken-yard instead o
the pig-peu. Give the hens cabbugi
and carrots, and millet or sorghun
seed.
Single heads of the Russian sundow
er measure from twelve t.o twenty-twi
| inches in diameter and contain an im
' mense quantity of seed which is high
ly valued by farmers and poultr;
breeders as an excellent and cheai
food for fowls. They eat it greedily
fatten well on it, and obtain a brigh
lustrous plumage nnd strong, health;
condition. It is the best egg produc
ing food known for poultry, and eai
be raisetl cheaper than corn.

“The CHICAGO RECORD is a model
newspaper in every sense of the word. * ’—
Harrisburg (Pa.) Call.
“There is no paper published in America
that so nearly approaches the true journal
istic idea! as The CHICAGO RECORD.
From “Newspaperdom” (New York).
“I have come to the firm conclusion, after
a long test and after a wide comparison
with the journals of many cities and coun
tries, that The CHICAGO RECORD comes
as near being the ideal daily journal as we
are for some time likely to find on these
mortal shores.”—Prof. J. T. Hatfield in
