But two rooms earned the quarter holiday. An in vestigation shows that most of this poor record is due to sickness and is hence unavoidable. We find, how ever, that a few pupils and parents have been careless. Continued vigi lance is the price of a good record for. attendance. Those who have been sick have our sympath We how know much thev have wanted to be present. Do not worry Your teachers will stand by you There is nothing to regret. Youcau not neip oeing sick, we nope you can be with us again soon. We will oegiaatoneip you make up your work. Have you studied your record for me tinra mourn as shown by your 'rade card given out this week? Do my grades need improving? Can you ao oeuer this month? Will you 10 better? Who is losing if vou do lot do your best? We are indebted to County Clerk F Li. Zeller for a library copy of the Torty-second annual report of the M is :ouri State Board of Agriculture, 1910. It is a neat and comprehensive record f the year s work in thisdepartment vith "valuable information on breed ng ana ieeaing livestock', improving the soil, growing crops, dairying, road naking, home economics, and the im irovement of the farm and home.' .vith instructive agricultural stalls ics. There are such articles as ,4Ag iculture in the Schools," "The lie la- ion of the Rural School to the Ifome," "Concrete on the Farm.' The Growing of Alfalfa," "Pas lure for Hogs.'' "Profitable Dairv- ing." "Installinga Farm House Water System,' ''Recreation in the Rural Community." and twentv-five other? qually as valuable. We shall be glad iO loan this volume to auv one who desires to read any or all of these most helpful articles. Have your bo or girl bring this volume home from .our school and return when vou have finished it. . ? Regular High School literary pro gram this afternoon. But live weeks till . the Semester Jxaminations. at which time all pu pils will write on questions covering the work of the whole Semester. Pu pils, especially those in the upper grammar grades and in the High School, should begin review. Three essentials of master' are hard study, understanding of what yon study, arid review. This last is of much im portance: going over a subject once does not fix it Hrmly for the average pupil. With the pupil's added know ledge of tlje ;s.ubject,. familiarity with methods and terms, and ability to distinguish important topics as a re sult of first study, ailiprough review is indispensable for gaining a definit e. connected, ana aoiaiug Knowledge 01 a subject. Do not neglect the review. Review often, review, review, review. Is Naking Good. From the Kansas City Tost, we are glad fo learn of the success as a physi cian that is coming to our young friend, Dr. I. E. Ruhl. a former New Point boy. Dr. Ruhl lias several cases of infant paralysis, a disease now causing the medical world much trou ble, lie is qmted in the Post as say ing: ''Most of the afflictions seem to be confined to the legs. .Tust why this part of the anatomy is the most susceptible is not known. Another thing I have noticed is that most of the cases start with sore throat, mouth and tonsils. If the germs do figst attach themselves to the body by this ingress, and then work into the nervous system, 1 think it advisable as soon as an infant develops a sore mouth and tonsils the parents should call a physician." We are always pleased to learn of the success of any and all of Holt county's boys. Mrs. Henry Thomas and Mrs. Emmet t Thomas and children.

Some time ago we published a see tion of the postal laws governing the use of loose coin on rural routes in payment for postal supplies. This re mures that all mailable matter mast be stamped and that there shall be no loose coin placed in boxes. Dur ing the summer months, the carriers have been exceedingly lenient with their patrons and have gathered up the pennies, but now as" winter lias come, t lie carriers, one and an, nave decided that on and after Dec. 1st, they will abide strictly by Ihe rule: and regulations of thedepartment re garding loose coins. We hope the pa trons will provide themselves with stamps and other supplies that there may be no delay. Your carrier will trv to alwavs have on hand plenty of uipplies to meet your demands. We would advise using the stamped route envelopes as much as possible. P. E. 0. Program. December 2, 1!)10. Mrs. Montgomery. About music in China. Hostess Roll Call Lesson Review Mrs. Hunker.

THE WEAPON IS FOUNDS The Shotgua With Which Hobbels ' Were Killed Is Found:: ' The last link in the chain of evf dence connecting Hez. Rasco with the killing of Oda Ilubbell, his wife and two small children and firing their home near Barnard on Sunday. November 20, was forged Saturday of last week, when the shotgun which Hez. Rasco borrowed of Joe Cayton was found in the haymow in the barn of Henry Rasco, the young man's father. ' Sheriff Tilson and his deputy, Ev ans, called at the Rasco home early Saturday morning. They found the family up. Henry Rasco, the father of Hez. Rasco, was called aside by the officers and told of their mission! His daughter, 16 years old. is said to be in a pitiable nervous condition, and the approach of any stranger on the pre mises sends her into hysterics. "If you should find anything on the premises," said the father, "do not tell any of the famiiy about it nor make any display that will lead theni to any conclusion." The barns were searched. In the last one in the loft was part of a load of hay. Alongside the "plate" that ran through the loft and concealed in the hay the gun, a double-barreled affair, was found, the hammers first coming into view. Heeding the re-' quest of Henry Rasco, the two officers at once left the farm without giving out any information. Rasco borrowed five shotgun shells from Cayton when he got the gun. He accounts for all of them by saying; that he shot five times atTabbits Sun day morning, killing three. The gun, when -found in the hay loft, was emp ty. The gun contains two empty shells and the stock is covered with blood. It is a double-barrelled breech-loading shotgun of modern makel Sheriff, deputies, constable and volunteers have spent a tireless week in a vain effort to locate this one missing piece of evidence. Every foot of the ground from the Hubbelliiome to the Rasco home has been gone over time again, and the Platte River has been dragged. Wells have been pumped dry and every other possible place has been visited time after time, and all without result. All Are Elected.
