Wonder why the parents in this community do not visit the schools? It Is a duty they owe to the teacher and to the scholars, yet it is very seldom that a visit is made to the school. The main idea seems to be to get rid of me children, and they can take their chances in the school. If the parents cannot stand the noise of three or four children, what must be the feelings of the teacher who has charge of the entire school. The directors should visit the school once or twice a month but they seldom get inside the building.

Which makes the better Christmas present—the 52 issues of The Youth's Companion, costing only $1.75 for the whole year, or one book costing $1.50 or $2.00? cellany, biography and humor, and gift gift The "Card of Thanks/ Notwithstanding all that has been said against it in recent years, the "card of thanks" continues to appear in the newspaper. Time and again it has been pointed out that this meth od of expressing appreciation of acts of kindness during the greatest griefs we are called upon to bear is a vio lation of the finer sense of good taste, bnt the good counsel thus tendered seems to have fallen on deaf ears. The newspapers wliich protest against the practice cannot be accused of mo tives of self-interest, as it is the rule to charge full reading-matter rates for all such notices. In waging a campaign against the "card of thanks" the newspapers strike at one of their sources of revenue. They would rather deny themselves finan cial gain than make the judicious grieve, as they invariably do when such an acknowledgement appears in the public print. There is the less excuse for such publication in view of the fact that there is a method by which expression of appreciation may be voiced in a way that is immeasur ably superior. A little note of thanks addressed privately to those who have given their sympathy and en couragement, or a few spoken words, gives an intim-ate and personal touch of gratitude utterly lacking in a printed paragraph in a newspaper.— Gate City.

People who have grape arbors may find something of advantage in reading the following from Ottum wa: C. E. Widger, who resides three miles northwest of this city, used common coal ashes around his vines and his crop of grapes this season were not only much larger, but were finer in quality. The use of coal ashes was an experiment of Mr. Wid ger. The first season there was a marked improvement, the second year showed better results and the third season's test demonstrated that coal ashes makes the grapes grow a great deal larger and in more abund ance. The variety raised by Mr. Wid ger is the Concord and they were larger than grapes which were grown in California. He states that accord ing to scientists there is an element in coal ashes which is necessarj' for the growth and perfection of grapes and he believes any Iowa fanner can be as successful as he in the cultiva tion of the luscious fruit. Kills Her Foe of Twenty Years. "The most merciless enemy I had for twenty years," declares Mrs. James Duncan, of Haynesville, Me., was dyspepsia. I suffered intense ly after eating or drinking and could scarcely sleep. After many remedies had failed and several doctors had gave me up, I tried Electric Bitters, which cured me completely.

Postmaster General Hitchcock has given notice that after November 1 it will cost ten cents to register a letter or a package instead of eight cents, as at present. The amount of indemnity that the government will guarantee in case of loss is a maxi mum of $50 instead of $25 as at present. The department has fig ured out a very considerable loss in the handling of the registry business and it is believed this advance in the cost to the patron will materially aid in bringing the service upon a pay ing basis. The entire postal depart ment is run at an enormous loss.ag-ji gregating the past year about ?20,-1 000,000.

At the recent meeting of the edi tors at Chariton the "Card of Thanks" was given an inning of some length, and it was the general opinion of the editors that cards should not be published in the news papers—that it is a custom that is not right, does not look right and but airs the thoughts of those in trouble to the general world when it shoifld be give personally. The Re porter has always printed cards of thanks when requested to do so, but agrees with the editorial brethren that it is a custom that should be eliminated. The Reporter has barred obituary poetry and it is tempted to bar "Card of Thanks." It is a cus tom that is bad form and which should be avoided in all newspapers.
