During the last school year, which ended June 30 1905, I find the attendance in Steele County very much improved over the previous year, yet there is still a a great margin for improvement. There were 2,850 monthly certi ficates of perfect attendance is sued and 80 pupils attended school every day during the entire school year. For the school year ending June 1904, 1740 monthly certificates of perfect attendance were issued and only 25 pupils attended .school every day during that year. From the above, jt will be seen that the perfect montly attendance has nearly doubled, while the yearly perfect attendance has more than trebled itself in one year. The school population has in creased 143, there being 2,012 children of school age, June 1905. Parents should not' ,keep their children out of school for trivial reasons. Strive to have the school terms come when your children are not needed at home,* and then sacrifice a great deal that your children may learn a little of the world's knowledge. To encourage perfect attend ance the county offers rewards in the form of ''Monthly Certifi cates of Attendance," "Term Certificates of Attendance," for four months' perfect attendance, and a,'"Diploma of Honor" for perfect attendance .during the school year. Our last legislature passed laws which must be en forced as far as possible. Child ren between the ages eight and fourteen years must be sent to a public school the entire time the ^school is in session, unless ex cused by the school board. This excuse should be in writing. The penalty for not complying with this law is a fine of not less than $5, nor more than $20, and costs, for first offence. It shall be the duty of the clerk of the school board to inquire in to all cases of neglect in sending children to school and ascertain from the person neglecting to perform such duty, the reason therefor, if any, and to notify the County Superintendent, and said County Superintendent shall lay the matter before the state's at torney, whose duty it will be to proceed to secure the prosecution for any offense occuring, under this article. With a few exceptions the peo ple of Steele County send' their children regularly as possible to school, but still all may not be fa miliar with the law. For the full law I would refer you to the School Clerk of your district.

Warner had the misfortune to badly wreck his automobile while out riding with a party on the Sherbrooke road several miles north of town The accident occurred while passing a four-horse team which was going in the same direction. The road was graded up several feet and in going by the machine ran over the edge of a culvert which was hidden in the weeds breaking the steering gear, Altho the engines were stopped the momentum carried the ma chine forward and toward the team causing the horses to lunge into the ditch which turned over the wagon and tank. In the melee the driver lost control of the team which ran away. The auto was badly damaged but for tunately the occupants were un injured. Mr. and Mrs. Mann and Mrs. E. D. Washburn were with Mr. Warner when the ac cident occurred. Battleship Strength of the Navies of the World. The British government has recently published its annual return showing the comparative strength of the seven leading naval powers of the world, from which it appears that of first-class bat tleships Great Britain possesses 53 France, 20 Russia, 14 Germany, 16 Italy, 14 United States, 12 and Jap$m 5 while of armored cruisers, Great Britain has 24 France, 17 Russia, 6 Germany, 4 Italy, 6 the United States, 6 and Japan, 8. Of battleships under construction. Great Britain has 8 France, 0 Russia, 5 Germany, 6 Italy, 4 the United States, 12 'and Japan, 2 while of armored cruisers tinder con struction, Great Britain has 4 France, 2 Russia. 4 Germany, Italy, 3 and the United States, 2. In this con nection we draw attention to the fact that the argument made in Congress against the construction of the two bat tleships that were recently authorized, on the ground that we have more bat tleships building than any other nation, is very misleading. If our battleships were built with the rapidity with which foreign nations do similar work, sev eral of these twelve battleships would now be in commission. It is because we are in arrears, and for that reason only, that our list of battleships under construction is so large. If we do not continue to authorize ships at a certain rate per year, we shall ultimately find that in spite of the large number under construction at any given time, we shall ultimately drop behind such a navy as that of Germany, which is being built on a predestined plan that calls for the placing in commission of a certain num ber of new ships every year.
