THE BRECKENRIDGE NEWS. CLOVERPORT. KENTUCKY PAGE T SCHOOL NEWS AND VIEWS (Continued From Last Week) 15c The Velve tin is twice m big as shown hr "No Rheumatics"is a Mighty Poor Reason for Wearing a Wooden Leg NO sting or hot burnin' is a mighty weak-kneed recommendation for tobacco. But when to bacco is mild and cool, and yet as full of "fun" as a barrel of monkeys well, that's another story that's Velvet And 'cause why? . . Cause Velvet is brought up not jerked up by the hair. If s raised as carefully as a favorite child. It's cured in the big fresh air. And it mellows away for two years in wooden hogsheads 'til it's smooth and rich as cream. The wonder would be if Velvet wasn't a whacking good pipe smoke. "Let Nature mellow yo to bacco an' that tobacco will shore mellow yo' nature," says Velvet Joe. And he's pretty nearly right. NATURE-AGEING in the wood does more to make tobacco friendly than any camouflage you can cover it with and don't you forget it See, taste, smell feel the "real tobacconess" in Velvet Why, you can almost hear it Velvet's the tobacco you can judge with your eyes wide open and specs on. There's a whole lot in Nature's way of making good tobacco better. And it's all in Velvet f Here's to a full pipe and a friendly one. -the friendly tobacco THE BLOBE MAN'S DAILY STORY. James G. Blaine and Nea! Dow, although they did not agree in all respects in their views on the tem perance question, were, nevertheless, very warm friend. Que winter's morning, they were walking along one of the streets in Portland, when suddenly Mr. Dow stepped on some ice and fell flat. Mr. Blaine, on seeing that Mr. Dow was not hurt, exclaimed, "Ah I The wicked stand in slippery places." "Yes," flashed back Mr. Dow. "I see they do, but I can't." Boston Globe. NEW ONE PROM INDIANA Mr. Babbage: I am sending SO cents in stamps. Will you please send me your paper, The Breckenridge News for the next four months, Mrs Maud Mattingly, ' Evansville, Ind. General Delivery. SUBSC K1HK FOR HE NEWS Several attempts to organize "Moonlight Schools" have resulted in failure so far as attendance is concern ed. A special effort was made at Glen Dean to start a night school. The county superintendent, through the cooperation of the Post Master at that place, secured a special census of those who could not read and write and the local trustee called personally upon almost every one and secured their promise to attend. Miss Nell Moorman, a teacher in the State Nor- I mal School at Bowling Green, agreed to give the month of September to , the work, but on the night set for the opening only two were present ' and the next night none. Probably j the illiterates think it is not worth the while when even they are earning j more than the teachers who propose ! to teach them. Another attempt will be made at Glen Dean by the teachers there. Mow thoroughly do you plan and outline your different lesson assign ments from day to day? You are on an examination for a certificate and are asked to "Outline a lesson plan as you would present it to the Sixth Grade Geography " what will you do with that proposition? Must you con jure up an assumed plan and wonder how much of a grade it will get you, or do you have a definite plan in mind that you have used and which you know to be a good one? Are your pupils between seveivnd fourteen all in school? If not it is your djty to report thrni to your '..iistee and see 1 v they arc not in .-c'vol at least three days in rach KCvk We will never tradiCi.te illiter acy o long as we have ha!f our child teii of school age out ot school for half the term tP "me even longer. Teachers should write to John C. Winston Co., Philadelphia, Pa., and ask for the Teachers Manual which is given free to accompany the First and Second Winston Readers. Tkis Manual is so arranged as to be. of great help to the teacher, not only in presenting the lesson to the class but as a means of permanent improve ment of the teachers ability as a teacher of reading. This is a splendid time in the year to give practical lessons in Agricul ture. Arrange with a near-by farmer to select his seed corn for him, then take your class in Agriculture to the field and select the seed corn from the standing stalks in the field. Give due regard to the size and proportion of the stalk, the height of the ear from the ground, the "Favored En viroment" of the stalk, the proximity of barren stalks, the form of the ear, the shape of the grains, and the size of the cob. Make the points plain then ask the pupils to go home and help their fathers select his seed corn for next year in the same way. Any teacher can earn his salary in the district from the increased yield of corn alone, if careful selection is practiced for two or three years, and fall selection of seed introduced. The tax paid in Breckinridge county for local school purposes a mounts to about $1 U per child per year. A child who sarts to school at six years of age and attends until the age of eighteen would spend twelve years in school. At the present rate the total cost of making an average American citizen of him would be $16.20. This $10.90 provides a rural school within the reach of every child, maintains the building, pays a large part of the teachers very poor salary. turntshes all the fuel and other in cidentals, and maintains a first class High school free to every child in the county. Twenty-four took the examination for teachers' certificate in September. and of that number seventeen made passing grades Nine made First Class and eight made Second Class certificates. Three of the unsuccess ful ones failed in Spelling, three in Arithmetic, and one on the General Average. The Community Club organized by Mr. Chintz Royalty, the teacher in the Kingswood district, has saved to the farmers in that community sev eral hundred dollars in the purchase of Fertilizers alone. The farmers of the community ordered their Fertil izer in car-load lots at a saving of several dollars per ton. You can do the same in your district. I have mailed to each teacher a copy of a letter sent out by the State Board of Health suggesting precau tions against a recurrence of the in fluenza epidemic. Let me urge that every teacher use his very best efforts to see that tiie suggestions are com plied with. Every suggestion is : good one for the preservation of health even though no epidemic were imminent, and with the experiences of last season fresh in our memory we should let no corrective measure escape untried.

The man who wants the best quality that can any where be obtained in roll roofing should buy Lastile. The wool felt used in Las tile is made in Carey's own mill by machinery built specially to produce better roofing felt. The asphalt used is the greatest waterproofing ma terial ever known. The surface is genuine crushed slate in the natural red or green color. Of course slate won't burn, that helps to make Lastile more fire-resisting. The color of the slate never fades and the surface never requires paint. There's both beauty and economy. Fire underwriters give Lastile a good rating. Con tractors find it inexpensive to apply. Owners find it durable and the cheapest in the long run.
