The text books that were adopted last year are proving satisfactory and there will be no change for four years yet. The High Schools are left free to select what they wish, as there was no adop tiun in this line. There were 132 pupils who completed the eighth grade last year, 57 of whom were from rural schools. There should be 132 enter some good High School in the county; it pays to complete a High School course. Each teacher should enter the school room this fall determined to make it the best year yet. Plan your work, grade your school and keep o record of all work done, use the course of study and inspire the pupils to finish the course Quarterly examination questions will again be sent out to all who will use them. Get ready for tbe fall examination which will be held on Oct. 8, 9, 10. Come prepared to ask and answer ques tions that seem to be of interest in your school. Teachers, ask your directors for that library money and use it in buying good boots for your school; the additions were made mostly by the town schools last year. The rural schools sbouid have just as good reading matter and just as good opportunities as the town schools and that will help you keep the boy on the farm. Did you ever think about that? Parents, help the teacher in all the ways you can. They need you to help, not to hinder. Geo. W. Reavis, County .School Commissioner. State Fair Corn Show. Premiums aggregating hundreds of dollars are offered on the best corn grown in the state. Special premiums are offered on corn grown by young men over 15 years of ago and under 20, also by boys under 15 years of age. It is believed that this will be the largest ex hibit that has ever been made by the young men of the state. A number of the leading bankers have taken up the proposition and are offering premiums for corn grown by young men to be shown at the State Pair The corn from this show can be preserved and taken to the winter Corn Show which will be held at Columbia iu January. It is expected that young men in pvery section of Missouri will take a great in terest in showing corn at the State Fair find that each county will be represented by a big exhibit. Case of Oregon Reversed. This genial primary business seems at times to make queer conditions. Up in Oregon both branches of the legislature are Republican by big majorities but un der the Oregon primary law the people have instructed the legislature to elect a Democrat to the United States senate. Of course the members of the legislature might disregard this vote of instruction but if they do the chances are that they will go out of the legislative business at end of their present term. Down in Oklahoma they have a law eimiltjf in ttif Orotrnn Ijiw Tlifl nannla GllXJJIU. fcw buw V l KlU ...... .uw pbUJUU at the general election in November vote i instructions on senator. Tho Democrats" have nominated the blind senator, T. P. Gore, and the Republicans have nomina ted Dennis Flynn. Dennis comes nearer j knowing everybody in Oklahoma than any other man in the state. He is popu-, lar with both Republicans and Demo crats. : While it is almost a certainty that the next legislature of Oklahoma will be Democratic by a considerable majority there are plenty of Democrats who in tend to vote for Dennis Flynn. An Okla homa Democrat talking about the situa tion tho other day gave it as his opinion that Dennis was likely to carry thestate. This will reverse the Oregon situation. Will the Republicans of Oregon and the i Democrats of Oklanoma obey instructions? Grandma Buzick Dead. "One of Lincoln county's pioneers, a well known woman and mother of a prominent Lincoln county fumiiv, died at her home in this city Satur my morn ing at 1 1 o'clock. "Mary Ruchman was born in Vermil mioo county. Illinois, February 24, 1S10. On October 29, 1S39, she was uui'ed vi marriage to II. S. Buzick a resident of the same cunty. After marriage Mr. and Mrs. Buzick moved to Des Moines, Iowa, where ihey resided for tome time. at length moving to Mound City, Mo. From here in 1870 they moved to Lin coln county, Kansas, which has since been the home of the Buzick family. "Eight children were bojn to this un ion, of whom but three survive thi mother. They are Mrs. II. M. Housten, of Mound City , Mo.: Mrs. Alice Graham, of this city, and A. R Buzick, of Sylvan Grove. Besides these the deceased has two aged sisters who reside in Iowa. "II is. Buzick, husband of the de ceased, departed this life September 20, IDO'J. Su.ee that time Grandma Buzick has lived with her daughter, Mrs. Alice Graham "The remains were taken to S.Uvau Grove Sunday afternoon where the fun eral was held. The body was laid to rest intheSyran Grove cemetery." Lin coln (Kans.) Republican, August 27, 1903., Tho above item has been furnished us by Frank Petree who lived for a number of years in Lincoln county, Kausas, and was well acquainted with the Buzicks while living there. II. S. Buzick and his wife will be remembered by the old timers in Holt county. They at one time owned a large amount of property in and about Mound City. Ira C. Buzick, a son, now deceased, represented this county in the legislature in 1SG6. After they removed to Kansas, he was prominent for many years in legal and political circles. A. R. Buzick, who still lives there, is a wealthy farmer, and is also quite prominent in Republican politics. A number of years ago he waB very favorably mentioned for the nomi nation for congress from the Sixth Kan sas District, but declined to make the race. On removing to Kansas, H. S. Buzick and his wife settled at Sylvan Grove in tho western part of the county, in the Saline valley, and by enterprise and industry acquired a large farm, which he operated and managed suc cessfully to within a few years before his death, when on account of advancing years he sold his farm to bis son, A R. Buzick.JThey were known and respected by every one in Lincoln county, aodj by many in the surrounding counties. American Laborers Ahead. The publication of the reports of in vestigations into the cost of living in Germany, England and the United States, has furnished the first critical basis for a comparison of the wages earned, the housing and kind and quant ity of food consumed by working men and their families. In every particular the Americans are ahead. Not having a copy of the report we do not understand how the "family of live" is used as a basis, but give the press dispatch on wages, as follows: "For a family of five the average Americau workingman in the trades will receive as wages; 329.7G per week for bricklayers, S19 50 for carpenters, 825 for masons, S23 for plumbers, S18.-1C for painters. "In England tho wages are as follows: Bricklayers S9.50, masons 69.25, carpen ters 69, plumbers 6S.75, painters 68. "In Germany wages are as follows: Bricklayers 50.75, masons Sti.75, carpen tons 56.75, plumbers 5G, painters 50.25. "From his earnings the American laborer spends 60.25 a week for food, the Englishman 6.3.70 and the German 53 01." Fewer Aliens Coming. A decided falling off in the immigra tion from all countries to the United States for tho month of July last, is shown by figures compiled by the bu reau of immigration and naturalization made public Tuesday. The total immi gration to tho United States for the period mentioned was 27,570 against 97.132 in 1907, a decrease of 72 per cent. The greatest decrease in any country is shown for Russia, the figures being G, 198, compared with 23,971 in 1907, a de crease of 74 per cent. The total number debarred from all countries was 535, compared with 23,971 in 1907, a decreuse of 57 per cent. Immigration from all countries for the sh: months ended July 31st, last, aggre gated 193,000, against 7SG,G67 for the same period in 1907, showing a decrease of 75 per cent. The total number of immigrants de barred was 3,493, against G,299in 1907, a decrease of 44 per cent. Tho total immigration from Russia for the same period was 32.234, compared with 114,531 in 1907, a decrease of 73 per cent. Corn and Stock Judging- Contest. The Directors of the Missouri State Fair offer liberal premiums to the young men of the slate for proDciency in judg ing Live Stock and Com. The premiums aggregate nearly 6300 in cash. The educational value of this work is apparent and it is hoped that many young men will enter these con tests. Write to the Secretary at Sedalia for entry blanks and full information at once. The State Fair dates are October 3-9. Entries close September 26th. IX AND AROUND NEW POINT. Newsy Pickups By The Sentinel's Busy Reporter. Horn to Mr. and Mrs. lllevins. a son. Au gust -J,'.

Fred Hershuer who eulisted in the navy, and after a few months. aboard the training ship at Norfolk, writes his par ents, tolling them of his trip across tbe country from Norfolk to San Francuco, whore he went aboard thejgood ship Cali fornia, leaving Norfolk, August 9th, and arriving at San Francisco on the 15th, where he was met by his uncle. A1. Hershner. Ho writes entertainly of his trip across the continent, of the inspir ing scenery, and says be went aboard ship, to begin his active service at once, and in a short, time we weighed anchor, and sailed away out in the deep, deep blue, for California City, where they coaled, and on tho 24th with the whole fleet would sail for a foreign cruise: "I wish ou could see the good ship California. It is as fine as a mansion, everything is as bright as gold: it has so much braes work, and every piece of it must bo brightened every morning. My station on the ship is in the torpedo room and am also in the life boat crew. On the 18th we finished coaling the ship and ready to start on our cruise. We put 1,200 tons of coal aboard the ship in 10 hours. When we coal the ship everybody gets busy even the officers that start around with there gold stripes over their coats, come out in blue overalls and get busy. We left California City August 18th and are now in San'jFrancisco Bay. I have a pretty bad cold, and as a rem edy the cooks give me a raw onion at every meal, ft is unusually cold hero in the evening and morning nnd most al ways in the forenoons it is quito foggy, but in tho afternoon the sun shines real bright. I have been real busy the past week, we had a hard ball game on the 21st; the game was between the U. S. S. California and the U. S. S. Washington teams; the California team beat, the score was 3 to 5. There are seven large cruisers and about that number of torpedo boats now anchored in the golden gate awaitingthe arival of tbe time for their departuro to Honolula.The ships are all heavily load ed with provisions. Tho water line of this ship is about a foot below the water. I wouldn't'mind staying here a little while longer, for the people here show much more respect for the sailors than they do any place I have been yet. It doesn't take much money for a sailor in San Francisco. A San Franciscolady presented theship with a pianola. When a person finds a place where the people are that free they ought to stay with them, if they can. Fred. San Francisco, California, aboard the ship California, August 22, 1903.
