Rome, Aug. 19.—Special.—King Vic
tor Emmanuel and Queen Helene of,
Italy have started for the little princi
pality of Montenegro, which is soon to
become the kingdom of Zeta, with
the father of Queen Helene, Prince
Nicholas I., as king. Advices from the
Swiss frontier that anarchists have
gathered to assassinate the royal par
ty have caused extraordinary police
precautions to be taken, but the Swiss
authorities declare that the gathering
of anarchists has nothing to do with a
plot to slay the king. When the kins
and queen of Italy arrive la Monte

ency to kingdom will have taken
place, but for several days following
their arrival there will be elaborate
festivities in court circles. It is. said

There are twenty-six head of cat

teen are milch cows, now milking,
seven head of horses and a number
of pigs and chickens are also quar
tered on the farm. Most of the cattle
are Guernseys and they are fine ani
A portion of the east forty acres
is used for gardens and each of the
seventy-five pupils who have remained
at the school during the summer, has
his or her own garden patch. Be
sides these there are large patches
of peas, beans, tomatoes, potatoes, etc.
etc. A willow hedge has been plant
ed along the north side of the land
and a number of fruit trees and
shrubs have been planted this year.
One object in conducting the farm
is to teach the pupils practical farm
ing and the work is carried on as
near like it is on an ordinary farm
as possible. The best known meth
ods of cultivation and diversification
have been adopted however. It
might be interesting to note here that
the pupils take an interest in the
farm work and perhaps take to this
sort of work better than any other.
The one hundred and forty acres of
land west of the track are divided
into fields of oats, wheat, barley, corn,
potatoes and garden truck, fiftten
acres are in corn and seven in pota
toes. The small grain has all been of health,
harvested and stacked near the build
ings by the pupils of the school. The
crops are all good and the work has
been very well done.
Several new buildings have been
erected on the school grouds this year
and the list of buildings now includes
two dormitories, oiess hall, superin
tendent's residence, employees resi
dence, school house, engine house and
laundry, warehouse, shops, barn, ma
chine house, ice house, four coal and
wood sheds, granary, corn cribs and
outside cellar. The coal and wood
sheds, ice house, machine houses and
the granary were all built this year
and a silo is now being built near
the barn, into which one hundred
tons of silo will be stored for winter
feed. The school has its own well
and water system, and a central heat
ing plant is to be installed before
cold weather. Sixteen hundred feet
of cement walks have been laid this
summer and Superintendent Randolph
is now preparing the ground on each
side of the walks for the planting of
trees next season. The grounds are
as fast as possible, to be made beau
tiful and attractive. The grounds and
buildings are lighted by electricity
from the city plant.
During the summer the school
buildings have been thoroughly over
hauled and repaired and the dormitor
ies have been recalcimined to make
them neat and attractive.
About one hundred and thirty pu
pils attended the school last winter
and about seventy-five have remained
here this summer. As we said before,
all the farm work is done by the pu
pils. The buildings are kept clean
by them, and cooking and sewing,
and in fact all house work is done
by the girls, that being a part of
their course of instruction. To sup
ervise all this work and superintend
the school proper requires constant
attention and Superintendent Ran
dolph and his assistants are kept
pretty busy from one year's end to
