Preparations are being made by quite a good many of the schools of the county to lake part in the Educational Exhibit, which is being arranged by County School Commissioner A. R. Coburn. The school which wins first pr ze in this contest will have its whole exhibit sent to St. Louis for the. World's Fair. In the case of the other schools, only the choice material of the county exhibit will be sent. Every rural teach er in the county should aim to send an exhibit for the county contest even if the exhibit is a small one, let the qual ity of the exhibit be good. There is no school in Holt county but what some material can be sent by the school for the county exhibit. If the teachers are alive to their work as they should be, and are interested in their pupils thev will sen that i heir school is represented in r-ome way by material in the County Educational Exhibit. Parents and school boards should see to ii that the teacher of the school district in which they livo is getting material ready for the contest. A perfect exhibit will cover t verv ph-.se of work that is done in the rural schools. A less comnlete exhibit c.n be made to cover any Imu of work that the rural school does.

Make the exhibit along any one line, cover any one subject or all of the subjects whhh are takrn up in rural schools.

Review of the Mill ExDlosion at Mound City, in 1878, Kecenily J. M. Ford and thehMrof Harvey Naudiey, through Administratt r T. W Burke, sold the machinery in the old Wales mill, on West Seventh street. to Fred McCann & Brother, of St. Jo seph. For several days past the Mc Cnnns have been taking the machinery out of the building and shipping it to St. Joseph, where it will be painted and rebuilt and be again put on the market. This machinery will all be removed before March 1, when there will be noth ing left of the old mill but the empty building. Seeing the men at work calls to mind the disastrous explo-ion of a boiler which occurred in this mill, and which wns attended with terrible fatal results. It was the most appalling dis aster that has ever occurred in Mound City, live men fallirg victims to the ca tastrophe. On the 28th of February, 187S, about o'clock in the afternoon, an awful noise was heard, and the buildings for blocks around the mill were made to tremble. Glancing in tho direction from whence the report came, bystand ers on State street saw bricks and other debris flying in the air. Then there was hurrying to the scene, and the work of reraoviug the dead and dying was begun' Caldwell, the miller; a wood hauler by the name of Riley Williams, James An derson, a farmer; James Dawson, assist ant miller, and the engineer, Jack Ack- ley, were the victims. No just blame was considered to attach to the engineer or any one connected with the mill, the explosion being purely accidental. The pump had gotten out. of order, it seems and the engineer evidentl ruhed from the engine room into the mill and culled for assistance. All the men in the mill including Anderson, the farmer, who had a grist, went either to assist or see what was was wrong, for all five were found in close proximity to the boiler Young Dawson was blown through the brick wall and scalding water was still flowing on him when ho was removed alive by Amer Cranneil and Rev. Dun can Brown, who were first to arrive. Fie died in great agony about midnight. A part of the boiler was hurled across Da vis creek, and there was not a brick left in place in the brick smokestack, and the wreckage wi s great. The Mound City Steam Flouring mill, this being the name first given the mill, was built in I 1870 by W.J. Hall, at a cost of about $8,000. As an inducement to locate here ! and erect the mil!, Hall received a bonus of $2,500 from the citizens of Mound City. The building was a two-and a half story frame structure, oOx.'lO feet area. It was equipped with three run of burrs, affording a grinding capacity of .'100 bushels of wheat and corn per day. The structure of the mill, which was badly wrecked by the explosion, was re built in the summer of 1878 by R H. Dawson and Mrs. W. J Hall, the widow of the original proprietor, who died in July, 1877. Later the mill wa owned by Isaac W. Zigler and others. Some improvements I were made, but the mill did not prosper. ! Capt. W. H. Wales and sons were the lust owners. They took out the burrs and substituted a full set of rollers The company became involved, and as competition ftom the new mill was too great i hey failed and turned over the property to creditors, and th Wales family went to Kentucky. The mill has been standing idle since 181)9. Mound Cjty News.
