Public School Last Friday- Thirty-two Finish School Work. The honor of graduating from either of Monroe's sckools is some thing of which any boy or girl may be justly proud. This year the I greatest number in the history of our schools attain that honor. The four in Holy Rosary Schcol are: Frances Nan Seward, Alma Pierce all, Josephine Hancock, Thomas Pierceall. The twenty-eight in the Public Schools are: . Georgia May Renshaw, Raymond C. Lew is, Harold M. Jayne. Marian Ryan. Gerald Williamsom. Paul Kern, Jeanette Vaughn, Cassie Tooley, Robert Sickles, Berta Nolen, J. M. Corden Mattie Fields, Blanche Berry, Bertha Yeager, William Bull, Ruth Hayne Mabel Hawkins, Marvel DeLash- mutt, Clara Jackson. Juliet Green. Bernice Bixler, Edgar McCann, Lena Green, Wilma Schafer, Ruth Mitch ell, Herman Bell, Edward Shank, Gladys Lear. The program Friday evening was interesting from start to finish. The address by Supt. E. M. .Sipple on the 20th Century Youth ynd His Job" was filled with good things. These young people who graduate from the Monroe should attain greater things. They are much better fitted for the duties and- responsibilities of life because they have diligently worked thus They will find a continuation in school will be of value. Thus far they have found that there is no royal road to learning. It takes work and all may succeed if they are willing to pay the price, and the price to pay is cheap when com pared with what is received. The Sun Shines It Will Rain. Some countries boast of being the land of sunshine. There has been too much sunshine in this vi cinity to please the farmers, but man does not always know what is best Never did the corn fields look better. They are clean and the corn is growing nicely. Some farm ers say the hay crop will be short others claim there is yet time for a good crop. Oats may not make a big yield but that is not a main crop here. The Hessian fly has captured many wheat fields, others are not hurt. This is no time to get discouraged. There is yet time for a big crop. The dry weather now does not hurt so much as would dry weather later. Gone to the Races. A 500 mile automobile race is to be pulled off at Indianopolis next Saturday. Monroe City will be rep resented. Two cars left here Wed nesday morning. J. V. Proctor and wife, Miss.

Again the water works has dem onstrated that property in Monroe is in less danger of being destroyed by fire. A small building near the light plant was discovered on fire yesterday morning. The alarm was sounded and it was found that the water had been shut off temporari ly on account of a leak, the fire spread rapidly. Soon the water was turned on and the fire soon put out. The Hawkins ice house was almost completely destroyed. Some insurance. The Conway Lumber Co., had over $2100 worth of silo stiwes adjoining and no insurance. J It has only a water damage. Shot the Well. Tuesday a charge of 24 pounds of dynamite was touched off at a depth of about GO feet in a well on the H. C. Benson farm. The well was failing and it was hoped to re vive it. The explosion sent ma chinery, etc., on top of going high in air. The pump was put in yes terday morning but water could not be obtained. Suppose mud prevented More Good Roads Marion County to Use Big Road Ma chinery in Making Good Roads in Warren Township Thursday was a day which meant much to the good citizens of Warren township. State Highway Commis sioner F. W. Buffum, Farmer Jones of Chillicothe, Judge Pine of the Marion County Court and County Highway Engineer Scheetz of Mari on County came to this city and from here made a touJ of Warren township. Eleven autos carrying over 50 people including the visit ors made the trip. At the Stone school house, Franklin school house Warren and Cooper school houses they met with the farmers living in the several vicinities. The peoDls who are anxious for good roads in Warren township have been for years paying money as taxes which has been used in building good roads around Palmyra and Hanni bal and now feel that the time is here to get good roads in Warren township. Mr. Buffum was also of the same opinion as he does not see any good reason why all the good roads shouid be built in the east end of the county. Judge Pine prom ises to build good roads in the west end of the county. He say s that the heavy road machinery will be at work nuilding good roads before June 10. This is as it should be. The county court shouid realize that the lax payers of the county get tired of paying in their money for roads or any other purpose and then having it all spent around the county seats. We have had that experience in Monroe County. The people distant from the county seat are entitled to their part of the money and should have it. William McNelis Passes Away. William P.
