RETAILERS of EVERYTHING GOOD to EAT and WEAR MUST HAVE FULL MEASURE Law on Weights and Measurt? is Very Strict One feature of the law regarding the weights and measured, which will go into effect January 1, relatea to the telling of wood for fuel. As the law reads,ttfter that date it will not be per missiahte to sell by the “load"—every lot of wood sold or delivered must con tain a certain number of cubic feet. The innovation will bring pleasure to a great number of people who have been buying wood "on the market." and who have often complained of short meaa are. The law will please a number o' formers, also, because the criticism tor ihort measure has in the past not been diecritninative—the blame has been in discriminately heaped upon the man who gave full measure and the fellows whose load was short and the interior Slinky, knotty and rotten. It will be necessary, also, after that date to give a duplicate ticket with •very load of coal, charcoal or coke and to make no sales whatever except by weight. The penalty for short weight severe.

The same author also wrote: The middling farmer site up to be a gentleman To live at ease in town he's bent. Rut ftoon hi* name ia on the pauper's Hat. A fool not worth a cant. These stanzas come to us after read ing some of the articles relating to a county training school ur 1 agricultural college, and as there arc always two sides to a question, we conclude the otherj sidfe needs to be represented. This trainging school is a fad, and only tends to weaken the work and influence of the graded and high schools. The course of these schools could be changed so as to meet the demand for training country teachers and then au thorize someone to see that no un worthies receive a diploma. The sys tem of graduation is weak and tends to ensourage incompetency, and the higher institutions of learning are not exempt in this relation. When a person holding a diploma issued from a school it is sup posed they have mastered the course >n that school; but when one holding a high school diploma cannot And the long side of a right angle triangle where the length of the other side is given, ia a very good indication of slackness in instruction. When p. graduate from the training school or a normal cannot read with the proper emphasis or expression it shows a lack of proper training. Out of four or five letters on the other side of this question only one writer practices what he preaches. He resides on a farm, studies his business from a scientific standpoint (though not pro fessional). He also sends his boys to the stat > school that they tnay gain new ideas, w! ile the others are engaged in something that is easier, cleaner anj more lucrative. One refers to the Richland county school and the proud ness of that cqunty. He has been mis informed The city residents are proud of the building; bui the country people are not proud of it and do not hesitate to condemn the course pursued to saddle it on to the taxpayers. If a committee of the county board were to establish a school and locate the building at Hills boro or some of the Mississippi or Kick apoo river towns it would be promptly voted down. The taxpayers have been liberal in building up good county build ings and they are not all paid for. Be sides. buildings cost more when built with public than private funds I firm ly believe the county jail cmld have been built at hatf the cost and then paid a handsome profit to the contractor. The late Judge Wymyn once said when he was county superintendentfof schools: “That not his best scholars were his best teachers, but those naturally adapt ed to impart knowledge." This would indicate that teachers were born to fol low the vocation. There are place* ot lew-, nine all over the work!. '1 her* are humble aehooi his anti eeUeeeo grand. Where wisdom ia taught to the rich and the poor. But the folk* are no rmarker than ther vrenr before. And the fools are aa plenty. Pm eon-}- to .say. As they once used to be in lay grandfather'* day. About twenty years ago. irs a teach er's meeting a teacher complained that i they were poorly paid, when the sup i erintendentmade the remark that "there j were nearly $45,000 a year expended Ederheimer Steins’Suits and Overcoats for Ym ino Dont * et anything keep you from coming here to see our display of Col * 1 ICII i e g e styles in fall and winter suits and overcoats.

Perhaps they are small contri butors. As to an agricultural v.oiiCge, the county is too small a unit, and \t would be entirely too expensive. TANARUS! oug’i a school for each congressional district might be conducted to good advantage, provided there was not too much of the professor sort, as the state seems to be cursed with that sort of education just now. The question arises, "why does the boy want to leave the farm?" To which there are many reasons, among them: The days are shorter, no chores, the work is easier and cleaner, the en tertainments are of a better class and then there is much better chance for promotion. Give the country boy an education and habits of industry and re sponsibility, and if the city would only close her accursed saloons, when he goes there, he will make good nine times out often.. Your own observation in life will prove this. Let us compare con ditions on the farm: Thirty years ago I received 26J cents per pound for wool; today it is 20 cents. I got $1 28 per bushel for wheat, today it is 80c; hogs were $-1.65 per cwt. today $5.75; butter and eggs were about the' same then as now, potatoes were 78c, today about 60. Then the tax on eighty acres of land was about sls; last year I paid S7B on the same piece. Then the state and county tax was about $28,000, last year it was more than a SIOO,OOO. With a new county officer saddled on to the people and the prospects of an expen diture of thousands of dollars for road machinery, and the possibility of an ex pensive addition to the insane asylum, with heavy appropriations for state in stitutions, with an increase in expense of 216 per cent, for the University of Wisconsin, in the last ten years, and with a lot of high priced state com missions, such as $3H,000, commission of public affairs, a $10,000.00 state high way commission, $50,000.00 state tax' commission. $75,000 industrial commis sion, $60,000 railroad rate commission, and the end is not yet, because no one has ever offered a bill to cut any of these schemes down or out. It looks like we had enough expense. As Edward Lehr would sav. "I think w then and 1 thought so still.” Respectfully. A. T‘. Jordan. Stark, Wit., October 25. CHAS, S.

To live on the top of a pillar, to withdraw Into the desert or to live Id a community—all this can be provisory, necessary to men, but ns definite forms It Is evident error and unreason. To live a pure and holy life on a pillar or In a community Is im possible. because tbe man Is de prived of a half of life—com munion with the world. To live always thus one must deceive oneself. It Is evident indeed, that just as It Is Impossible In the current of an Impure river to separate a little circle of pure water by some chemical process, so It Is Impossible to live alone or In a society witb some as saints in * whole world which lives in violence for money Ground and cattle must be bought or rented. Relations mu3t be enteicd Into with tbe exterior, the non-C Jristlan world. We cannot liberate ourselves from It. and we ought not to. except that In general \w might • ab stain from those things uicb we need not da We only de ceive ourselves The whole work of a discipline of Christ consists in establishing the most Chris tian relations witb this world. —Count Tolstoy.
