To merely replace a tree that has been blown down is a much more sim ple affair than to transplant a forest giant. Yet this sort of thing is con stantly done and is no novelty. So long ago as the time of Louis XIV. hundreds of forest trees were dug up by the roots and transplanted to Ver sailles, where they still form a forest around the old palatfe. were sold at high prices, and there were a few sales of cattle. A lot of farm machinery was sold, and also consider able household furniture. The next market day will be on Thursday, June 8. and the committee having the matter in charge are deter mined to put every possible effort to make it one worthy of a large attend ance; and iu their efforts towards this end they ask for the co-operation of the people of Mineral Point and surround ing country. Wolf Hunting in Grant County. This seems to be the wolf hunters’ busy season. Within the past few days $313 has been paid out here in county and state bounties. The Herald last week told of Win. Wilkinson, of Patch Grove, receiving s(l4 for the scalps of eight young wolues. A few days later Joe Burton, the well known veteran, of Annaton, arrived at the county clerk’s office with the scalps of four young wolves which he stated he had run onto accidently. His total bounty amounted to $33. the next day Eugene Harring ton, of Cassville, broke all records bringing in the “scalp locks” of twelve young wolves and one old one. His skill as a hunter netted him the sum of SIIU. fifty-eight from the state and fifty eight from Grant county. The Herald. Discontent. When discontent seizes upon the mind it is like the deadly cancer, reaching out with its tentacles for sound flesh to feed upon. It must be checked iu its incipient stage. The caustic of self arraignment must be unsparingly used and the salve of common sense liberally applied. Self treatment Is necessary to insure a cilre. —Frank B. Welch. $1.25 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE.

Milwaukee Journal: The legislature should go exceedingly slow in its at tempts to determine the requirements for entrance into the University of Wis consin. For this is practically what the Wei weiu bill, guaranteeing the admission of every graduate of a free high school in the stale without an ex ami nation, trys to do. Upon the en trance requirements depend in a large measure the standing of the institution, and upon its standing hinges its success in turning out wadi equiped young men and women. It will be generally agreed, we be lieve, among those who are familar with the university and its policy, that its entrance requirements are not. tin duly high. The young man or woman who really wants more than a high school education, sud who is fairly well prepared, has little trouble in getting admitted. There has been complaint in some quarters that the university was dictating the curriculum of the high schools through its scheme of accredit ing, but it is our opinion that whatever influence the institution may have exer cised in this respect has been rather in the interests of the high schools than against it. Members of the legislature, however intelligent they may be, are not, compe tent to say what or how a university shall teach. That is the duty and the business of those whom the state has chosen for that very purpose the re gents and the faculty.
