Rural Schools Should Become Social
The training of country children to
grow two bushels of corn where one
bushel grew before is a commendable
thing. To bring this about many
changes maj- be made in the pro
grams of most country schools. Arith
metic problems may be worked out in
terms of corn and potatoes and cows.
Reading may bo largely confined to
subjects of interest to country boys
and girls. Essay on farm topics
may be written in place of the usual
parsing- and other grammar work.
This will lay a foundation for much
practical work in the later years of
school life.
Older students trained in the ele
mentary principles of agriculture
could conduct germination tests of
corn and grain. Herds could be test
ed, rations could be worked out for
livestock, recmos could be kept of
poultry, girraents could be made for Of the twenty-five that started out to
home, and the art of cooking could
be cultivated. These and many other

headache, and does it often, have his
eyes tested as soon as possible. The
eyes may be under a constant strain
which will injure them early. So, too,
if the ear runs, you should see a doc

may soon be deaf for life

er boys on a farm picking mustard.
It started to rain while they were in
the field and then the boys went to
the hay loft where they proceeded to
amuse themselves with various sort^
of capers as boys will. Among oth
er things, they tried to see how far
down their throats they could hold a
1 grain of wild oats. Adolph happened
i to drop his oat, which was inhaled
into the air passage. Tt hurt him
.reatly for a litle while, and then the
'been subject to coughinc spells in
the nights, sometimes of more and
sometimes of less severity. In the
day time he did not cough a great
deal, until lately, and his appetitie
seemed fairly good, yet he has never
been quite the same robust boy a-*
before the accident. Although ho
has grown in stature he has seeming
ly gotten weaker physically and un
able to take part in games which he
formerly used to do. His physical
condition also has interfered with
his work at school. Last winter he
was the victim of another serious ac
cident. He and some other boys
were in the Sheaf office playing and
scuffling around a little as boys often
do, and as a climax began to grab for
each others' necks. Adolph was se
verely squeezed in the neck, resulting
in the neck becoming sore and stiff.
One side of the neck became paralyz
ed, the trouble spreading also to one
side of the head and face. This in
jury seemed to affect him even more
than the other. At Minneapolis, the
boy was placed in a hospital where he
will be examined by two or three
specialists.' 2 His case is a peculiar
one and thus far we have not learned
whether or not anything can be done
for*him/^J His parents hope for the

The Marshall County Fair for 1912
is now a memory only. Although
secretary E. T. Frank and the other'
officers of the fair association, had*
put forth heroic efforts to make this
fair a big success, yet weather condi-r
tions over which neither they nor any
human being can exercise control,
came to interfere with their plans." All^
Monday it rained hard and on Tues
day morning several inches of snow'
fell, something very unusual here at
this time of the year. Yet, in spite
of the inclement weather, many ex-.'
hibits were brought in from the sur-'
rounding country. The display of
farm products was very complete and
better than at any former fair. In
the root crop and vegetable line some
very fine specimens were shown. The.
poultry exhibit also, was veiy good,
and those competent to judge, said it
excelled what was shown at either
the Thief River Falls and Crookston
Owing to the very bad weather, the
attendance of course was small, al
though the management decided to
charge no admission. Neither were
the amusement features patronized to
any great extent, with the exception
of the Sanford Dodge Company's per
formances in the opera house, which
were of a high order and delighted
large audiences.
All the judges in the various de
partments were from the Crookston
1 School of Agriculture. A complete
list of all prize-winners will be pub
lished in next week's Sheaf.
The chatelaine watch offered by*'
The Farmer for the best loaf of bread
made by a girl under sixteen years,
was won by Miss Cora Hanson, of Vi
knig. The watch is now on exhibi
tion in D. Farrell's show window,
where it will remain one week.
McCrea township won first prize
for the best township exhibit. It was
an attractive exhibit, which had been
collected and arranged mostly by the
children of the two Sunday schools in
debt of gratitude to Secretary E. T.
Frank and the other officers of the
Fair Association for their heroic ef
forts to make the fair a success. The
bulk of the work has naturally fallen
on the secretary and he has done bet
ter than most any other man could
have done under the circumstances.
He has kept down expanses as far 3.1
possible, and if the association will
receive its nsxial allowance from the
county, it will have money in its
treasury after all premiums are paid.
All exhibitorsxof
stock kindly agreed
to refund to the association half of
the premium money won by them so
as to help the association on its feet.
Bad weather will not always' inter
fere with our fair, and next year we
expect to have the best and biggest
that we have ever had. Let us make
the start now. Let everybody select
good seed now for next year's crops,
because good seed is very essential in,
order to grow the best products. Then
let everybody get ready a good plot of
ground to receive the seedthe rain
and the sunshine will do the rest.
Secretary Frank Extends Thanks
I wish to express my personal ap
preciation of the heroic efforts of
those who helped so willingly to
make the fair a "go" and in behalf of
the association, to thank the exhibit
ors who braved the inclemencies of
the weather to show their loyalty to
our fair.
