It Is reported that almost all of the blue grass pastures have been taken heavily with whits clever and that on this account the blue grass has been smothered out to a Urge extent. The extreme dry weath er for the past month has also Injured the crop very materially. SCARCITY OF ENGLISH SPARROWS. Noticing the scarcity of English sparrows and knowing Major Jim Burn- side to be a close observer of anlmrl, vegetable and mineral life, we asked him the cause. He tells us that oiling the streets is the direct cause, the sparrows gettting the oil on their feet and then on their eggs will not allow their eggs to hatch, he also says many leave town for the country as soon as the oil is spread in order to get their dust baths. Thus we see the oil abates not only the dust and fiy nuisance but the English sparrows as well. INTERESTED AND IN TERESTING VISITORS. On last Sunday, Mr. and Mrs. Clar ence Williamson, Dr. and Mrs. Lan drum McFarland, motored over from Lexington spending a few hours with Mr. and Mrs. Will Lackey and the family of Judge R. A. Burnside, re turning to Lexington after lunch in the evening. Mrs. Williamson will be remembered as "Genie" Dunlap and Dr. McFarland as "Lannle JUcrarland when they visited so often the home of their grand-parents. Gen, and Mrs. W. J. Landrum. Mrs. Williamson is now an active church worker and club womtn in Lexington while Dr. McFarland Is un eminent New York, M. D., yet they Both retain an interest and love in their childhood friends, also evincing pride in every improvement and a deep love for Lancaster. MONTGOMERY HERE MONDAY, Mingling with the court day crowd here last Monday was Hon Charles F, Montgomery, of Casey, who is a can didate for the Democratic nomination for congress from this district. He was highly pleased with the warm re ception be received here and made many friends, many of whom had never met him before. In the afternoon a strong organization was formed in the interest of his coming campaign and a working committee was perfected in every pre. clnct in the county, with Mr. James Clark as its chairman. While not on the ground In person, the friends of Hon. Hurvey Helm, were also active in his interest and to a man "up a tree" it locks as if the race be tween these two gentlemen will be a close one, at least in this county. CHILDREN EMPLOY MENT DURING VACATION The problem of finding useful occu pation for children during vacation begins to worry parents as the school year draws to a close. Though the youngsters are supposed to suffer from strain of school life, they often get more tired and nervous during vaca tlon. Some useful occupation for part time serves as a balance wheel to till regulated activity. The United States bureau of educa tion recommends that in each school there be one teacher who has practi cal knowledge about gardening. This teacher should be employed through out the year. She should help pupils select seed, visit gardens and assenv ble children in groups for instruction in this work. Many lawless ways disappear with regular tasks. Once a boy has seen his fruits and vegetables robbed by some youngster, he gets the owner's point of view. Atter that, stealing things from a neighbor does not seem funny and glorious.
