Sugar Beets.
No country can produce better root
crops than the Snake river valley, and
Ibis is particularly true of sugar lieets.
Wherever those beets have been tried
and properly cultivated they grow to
perfection. A number of farmers on
the West side have made a trial lest
of growing them, and they are more
than satisfied with results. We have

Geo. Worden, which weighs 8 pounds

beet sugar making will be one of the

of teachers, hut the best teac-Uers who
live are not omniscient, they do not
know everything in the school room
and out of the school room.
The better the teacher the more
auxious he is about bis work and to
understand the temperament of his
pupils; and here is where a duty of
the parent comes in. He ought to
consult with tbe teacher and help the
school Work; he ought to visit it for
his child's sake and the teacher's sake.
He ought to see its workings and
kuow for himself.
Parents ought to mauifest an inter
est in their children's training by
watching them closely while at school.
If trouble comes up between teachers
and pupils a word of information or'
a suggestion from a parent may re
lieve it before it grows serious. All
the parents of Blackfoot should make
the acquaintance of the teachers of
their children and inform themselves
of the conditions under which they
are to be placed this year. With an
earnest co-operation of trustees, pa
rents and teachers much good can be
done this scholastic year and children
advanced in their studies in a way
beneficial to them and pleasing to all
interested. Parents turn over a new
leaf and for tbe year resolve to visit
the school regularly.
