While there can be no writtten
contract entered into between Sub
District Trustee and teacher before
July 1, yet we are reliably informed
ttiat quite a number of verbal con
tracts are being made. In justice
to .the teachers, we again call the at
tention of the Sub-District Trustees
to the fact that Clark county has: a
'corps of teachers that cannot jba ex
celled anywhere. They are progres
sive and are preparing thenwelve-;
each vcar for better work by attend
ing Normal Schools.
We now have twenty-three teach
ers attending the Richmond Normal.
There are a liimber of teachers from
other comities holding State Normal
certificates trying 4 secure the best
schools. It -would be an injustice
to our teachersNind -would lower the
standard of scholarship to give our
schools to teachers from other coun
ties. Everything being equal, let the
motto be: "Clark County School.
For Clarlc County Teachers."

COMMON SENSE BSIS
j; - niirnTiiilO
- By WMC-FREEMAN,
Abe Martin says: "The man who
does not advertise may know his own
business,, but nobody else does."
I always think there is something
wrong -with, a business if it does net
makeltself known .in some way.
Common sense must be applied,
however, as to how that business shall
be' made known.
In New York, Chicago, Philadelphia
and other large cities there are fifty
times as many stores that do not ad
vertise in newspapers as do advertise
The reason is that these stores are
mere neighborhood stores doing a
small business depending wholly on
the custom of perhaps a couple of
Obviously, such stores cannot afford
to advertise in the big newspapers.
How, then, are they to advertise?
-There are only a few ways for them
to do, vie:
Sending well-written letters to aft
of the families in the neighborhood
telling about the goods they have foV
sale using posters and signs in their
neighborhood wherever they can get
the' space forjthem displaying their
merchandise in their windows out
better than all of these is advertising
in the weekly neighborhood paper, if
one is issued.
There must be advertising of some
kind done, and if It Is 'effective the
business will grow, and the ' small
shopkeeper may be able to acquire
stores in different neighborhoods
Then he can branch out with his ad
vertising program and buy space in
the big newspapers, like so many oth
ers have done before him.
This applies only to the very large
communities; in the smaller com'
niunities. where everybody knows
everybody else, the one medium to
use all of the time is the daily home
You must realize that good adver
tising, of whatever nature, must have
a basis of old-fashioned common sense
and must be done in accordance with
a shopkeeper's ability to pay for it

form of salesmanship that tends.

Thirty or forty years ago tho Mam
moth Cave shared honors with Niag
ara as a pojnt of Interest for trav
elers. No American felt that he
Uenw his own country till he had vis
ited the wonderful opening fn the
earth. No foreigner visiting the
United States was expected to return
to his own land without seeing' and
exploring the cave. It was one of the
features of illustration in school geog
raphies. It furnished a subject for
countless magazine writers and illus
trators. Now, we never hear of the Mam
moth Cave. Public attention is called
to the fact that the monster hole in
the ground "is still there" by the an
nouncement of change in ownership,
the former proprietors finding that all
profits on their investment had van
ished. The fact is, the Mammoth Cave has
not been advertised in recent years.
It is just as wonderful as it always
was. But, somehow, practically all
attempts in the way of advertising it
have ceased. Just why this is, it may
be impossible to say.. But the fact
Advertising "Our Town."
Do you take a pride In your town?
In speaking of it and working for it,
do you say "our town?"
When you say "our town," the ex
pression has a different meaning from
what it does when you say "the town,"
"this town" or "your town."
Practice saying "our town" until you
can give it a musical and attractive
sound that is confidence inspiring and
means tbe true loyalty of a citizen.
There is a big difference placed on
the meaning of words by the tone in
which they are expressed. Some people
can say "come In" in a tone that means
say out more than it does come in.
In 8peaking"of your town, make
every word mean confidence, loyalty,
prosperity, welcome, and you will have
a town that exhibits ail these. Tho
An Example of Realistic Drama.
"Realism may be carried too far."
The speaker was Augustus Thomas,
the playwright Mr. Thomas was con
demning certain overrealistlc plays
that he bad seen in Paris.
"They were so realistic," he said,
"that they inflicted pain and disgust
on the audience. The audience under
this excessive refclism suffered like
Mrs. Dodledum. '
"Mrs Dodledum was horrorstruck
to see' her little daughter come home
from the beach one morning with her
new silk frock cut into about a hun
dred holes of various sizes.
" 'What on earth,' the mother cried,
'have you cut all these holes in year
frock for? '

SELECTING SOOD SEED-CORN
Little Practice Will Enable One to
Become Quick and Reliable Judge
Points to Study.
With a little practice onecan be
come a quick and reliable judge of an
ear of corn suitable for seed. But it
will be necessary to study such points
as trueness to type, shape of ear's, color
of kernels, tips and butts of ears, uni
formity of kernels., shape of kernels,
space between kernels and the per
cent of grain to(the cob. Briefly it
should be stated that the rows of ker
nels should be straight, running from
butt to tip; tho kernels wedge-shaped,
thus insuring a large per cent of the
corn on the cob. The furrows, or
the space between the. kernels, should
be narrow; the grains deep, the cob
comparatively small. The color of the
kernels should be uniform, having no
indication of a mixed variety. All ears
that show immaturity or rotted ker
nels should be eliminated, and espe
cial care should be taken to select
ears with large germs. The fact should
be borne in mind that a large yield
requires ears that are well filled and
as few nubbins and barren stalks as
possible. It costs as much to produce
nubbins- as it does good ears, and or
dinarily 20 bushels to the acre will
cost as much work and other expense
as 40, hence the economy of Increas
ing the yield.
PLAN FOR STRETCHING WIRE
Method Shown In Illustration Will
Enable One Man to Do as Much '
Work as Two.
The following method of, stretching
wire over rough ground is a good one.
Get some big nails and drive them
into the posts as illustrated, on top
of knolls, slanting the nails downward.
Hang tho wire over them. In the low
places drive them into the post up
ward,, and hook the wire under them.
Then stretch the wire as tight as de-
sired. One man can stretch nearly as
much wire this way as two can with
out the use of the nails.
The farmer makes the most money
.who devotes his fields to the growing
of crops to feed stock, making use of
all the raw products at home, thereby
not only saving much of the cost of
transportation, bpt also maintaining
the fertility of the soil. Taking every
thing into consideration, corn will
probably produce more food per acre
for domestic animals than any- other
plant, and there are but few feeds
