Mrs W H Holmes received the sad news Wednesday of the death of her brother, Joseph Eley, at his home in Inman, Kansas. Death was due to cancer of the stomach. He was born in Ohio in 1840. At the beginning of the Civil war he enlisted in the sth Wisconsin Battery, serving to the close of the war. Besides his wife, he leaves six children, all grown to manhood and womanhood, also two brothers of Mon roe, Wis, three sisters —one in lowa, one in Nebraska, and Mrs W H Holmes of Milton Junction. Frank M Smalley, one of the pioneer residents of the town of Milton, died Wednesday morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs Bert Hill, at nesville, after a slight stroke of paralysis and a general breaking down from old age. He had been in fairly good health until about two weeks ago and he and his wife had spent the winter on their old place on the hill southeast of town. A few weeks ago they sold the place to Chas Mikkelson and purchased a home at 1026 Carrington street in Janesville. Francis Marion Smalley was born June 9, 1832, in Shiloh, Cumberland county, N J, where he spent his boyhood days. In 1855 he came west, first stopping for a time at Walworth and later going to Edgerton, where he was married Jan uary 9, 1859, to Marrietta L Ordway, and where they lived for nine years, he working at the brick mason’s trade, which avocation he followed all his life. The family came from Edgerton to Milton Junction and for twenty years Mrs Smalley conducted a boarding house and hotel in the frame building formerly standing on the lot occupied by the Kelly block, while Mr Smalley plied his trade.

Ole K Husebo died at his home in this village last Saturday forenoon of heart failure due to old age. He be came sick first part of the year, but had not been confined to bed more than a month. The funeral was held last Wednesday afternoon, with short ser vices at the home at 1 o’clock and at Liberty church about 2:30, Rev Krostu officiating. The pall bearers were five sons and his son-in-law, Herman Rothe. Last Thursday while Mrs Ole Hoel, residing on the Albert Smithback farm, was gathering eggs in the hay barn, she fell through the hay chute to the floor below, a distance of nine feet. Mrs Hoel received no internal injuries or broken bones* but the shock and bruises kept her in bed for awhile. Janesville According to an announcement the law firm of Fisher & Oestrich will dis solve.

Mrs Georgia Hyde of the city schools is to be on the "iculty of the training school for this summer, and if the plan is carried out she will be retained permanently. Cat alogues of the courses of study of the school will be prepared soon and sent out over the county.

John Nettum had the misfortune of falling down the hay chute onto the cement floor last Monday. Although it was painful, John is satisfied that it wasn’t serious. A large number of friends from this neighborhood and Albion Prairie came and reminded Mrs G C Larson that it was her 50th birthday Monday. A sup per was served and all wished her many happy returns of the day. Avery pleasant affair occurred at the home of Mr and Mrs G C Larson Monday, April 10, when about twenty friends surprised Mrs Larson on the occasion of her 50th birthday. Rev Krostu, in behalf of the gathering, presented her with a beautiful gold breast pin, a token of the high esteem accorded her by her many friends. A dainty luncheon was prepared. After spending a most enjoyable afternoon each guest departed, sharing with their hostess a pleasant memory of the hap py day. Two attempts were made Saturday to derail the Cambridge train on its way to London. A tie was found on the track just north of town as the train was making its neon trip and was discovered and dislodged just in time to prevent trouble. At night again as the train was making its iast trip and just as it topped the hill near the Lee farm, Supt Delamater, who was more watch ful than usual on account of the occur rence of the morning, spied a hardwood timber, so laid that derailment and probably serious disaster would have been certain had the wheels struck it. Stoughton Arnold Skibrek has bought of Ole Hove the residence property on North Monroe street that some years ago was owned by Mrs Bertha Frank. After sorting tobacco for nearly 15 weeks the American Cigar Cos will fin ish its work this week. Over $20,000 in wages has been paid out. Bids will be advertised soon for the draining of the 17,000 acres comprising the land of the Albion drainage district, owned by about 100 men. The ditch is about three miles long. The matter has been hanging in the courts for two years. The St Paul railroad has turned over to Attorney J M Clancey its defense of the company in the case of Nels Pres tekvern, who was killed April 19, 1909, by being run over by an engine at the entrance of the Maudt Wagon Cos. Hildus Lee, who the past eleven years has been connected with the Depart ment Cos, and now for some time has had charge of the rug and house fur nishing department, has resigned his position, as he has concluded to remove to North Dakota where he and A W Patterson will go into the general mer chandise business at Leith. A ditching outfit from Elkhorn is camped on the farm of A O Otteson in Rutland township and they are engaged in work for Claire and Dave Hanan and Morrison brothers. The ditches are all run into Badfish creek, a stream that is fed by springs that start near the Village of Oregon and it never goes dry. The low land in Rutland is in this way made more profitable and the marshes reclaimed will add materially to the in come of the owner in the way of crops. The outfit looks like a small circus. There are 8 men and 20 head of horses. How's This. We offer One Hundred Dollar* Re ward for any case of Catarrh that cannot be cured by Hail’s Catarrh Cure. F. J. Cheney & Cos., Toledo, O.

Charles F P Pullen, cashier of the German American bank in Milwaukee, has tendered his resignation to the board of directors on the account of continued ill health. About a year ago he was severely ill and he has never recovered from the effects. He left Sunday for Alabama, where he expects to spend several months on his planta tion. Will Smith returned Sunday from a business trip to southern Ohio where he has been buying tobacco for his eastern firm. The trip was successful in a bus iness sense and also a pleasant one. Mr Smith found the Ohio tobacco growers a fine lot of men, and all seemed to be doing a profitable business. Mrs Geo W Dibble died in Madison, April 6, 1911, aged 64 years, 7 months and 25 days. Mary Wadsworth was born in Otisco, Onondaga county, N Y, Aug 11, 1846. She was united in mar riage to George W Dibble Sept 8, 1895, and united with the M E church at Ev ansville, Wis, in the winter of 1896 and 1897. The New Rock County Training School for Teachers. There is such a general lack of in formation among the people as to the purpose and the character of the new training sbhool that it seems necessary to take some space in presenting a few facts. There were no county training schools in Wisconsin prior to 1899. The legis lature that winter authorized the es tablishment of two such schools, and these soon proved to be the means of supplying a long felt want, viz., fur nishing trained teachers for rural schools. Before the advent of the county training school the country teachers had been largely recruited from the ranks of the common or the high school graduates. These people were and are today almost wholly un prepared to discharfe successfully the functions of a good teacher. The eight normal schools of the state do not usually send teachers to the ru ral communities. The product of these schools goes to the cities and the towns. Thus the training school is needed. It has a special mission: to prepare rural school teachers. There are now twenty-six such schools in Wisconsin, and this legislature will undoubtedly provide for four more. This new school is to provide trained teachers for our own county —Rock. The state superintendent passed upon the qualifications of the instructors in the school, the course of study, the work done, and has general oversight of some other details. Our county gets the benefit and the state is back of us. The state pays two-thirds of the cost of maintainance, providing this share does not exceed $3500 per year. The county pays one-third of the running expenses. There are two courses of study, one and two years in length, respectfully. The two-year course is for those who have the minimum of preparation, the one-year course for those who can do the work in one year, because of maturity and previous training. The training school is here to stay. The people soon see the real value of such a school. It is not an experiment. It is an established fact in the excel lent influence which it is exerting. The school year is of ten months dur ation and is divided into four quarters of ten weeks each. The Rock county school will open for work on Monday, Aug. 28, 1911. It is not expected that any of these schools will be large. An attendance of forty students would be about all we could accommodate, with a teaching force consisting of the prin cipal and one assistant the first year. We are hoping for not less than thirty nor more than forty. We aim at qual ity of work accomplished. No student under sixteen years of age will be admitted and the following are eligible to admission without exam ination: 1. Those holding a teacher’s certifi cate. 2. High school graduates^ 3. Students who have had two years of high school work. Common and graded school graduates will be given an entrance examination. If these people are sufficiently mature and have been well trained they will have little difficulty in passing this ex amination. Tuition is free to residents of Rock county. All necessary text and refer ence books are to be furnished by the school at a rental of seventy-five cents per quarter, or three dollars per year. The Rock County Training School board consists of C. E. Moore, presi dent, Evansville, R. F. D.; Supt. O. D. Antisdel, Janesville, secretary; Earle A. Cleveland, Beloit, treasurer. For information concerning this train ing school, write to either SupL O. D. Antisdel, Janesville, or to the under signed, Frank J. Lowth, Principal of the Rock County Train ing School, Evansville/ Wis. ROCK COUNTY SUMMER SCHOOL. The summer six weeks’ session of the training school will open for work on Monday, June 26, 1911, and will close on Friday, Aug. 4th. The principal of the training school will act as the prin cipal of the summer school, and he will be assisted by a faculty of competent instrvctors. The sessions will be held in the Janesville high school building. No tuition will be charged the students from Rock county. Especial attention will be given the needs of inexperienced prospective teachers who are working for a third grade certificate. For Sale— A good house and lot in second ward on North Second street.

Janesville Co. 20t3 Ha Worried the Judge. A story was recently told of the elder Judge Peekhain, father of the supreme court justice. In the early days of dentistry a hickory plug was put into the cavity to fill the space where a tooth ought to be. This plug had to be gently pounded into its desired po sition. The old judge was somewhat addicted to strong language, and when the dentist began his wor kthe judge indulged in some classic comment. As the tapping of the plug continued he threw all dignity to the four winds of heaven, and his language became de cidedly “more forcible than elegant.” When, however, he arose from the chair after what seemed to him an interminable period of agony he pulled out all the stops in his vocabulary for a grand climax. The impression on his listener seems to have been deep and lasting. As the judge passed out the dentist grimly remarked to a wait ing patient: “Wasn’t it beautiful? It wasn't real ly necessary to pound half so long, but I did so enjoy his inflection that I almost pounded the hickory plug into splinters. Wonderful command of language the judge has!”—Case and Comment. —Choice collection of dahlias, pot grown, ready May Ist. Janesville Floral Cos. 20t3 —Mike Schmidt’s shoes always give satisfaction.
