' As Holt County In a sir ct v iiarl cultural county, containing no towns with more than three thousand popu lation, Its schools arc all clussed ai rural 'chools, and this problem should become a mutter of earnest solicitude to every one or us.

State Superintendent Baker Is to bo congratulated on the selection of his assistants. To select from a political party, competent, high class men, at a time when the salaries of the po sitions arc Inadequate to tho demands of the offices Is not an easy task.

One of the questions wc arc asked almost daily Is "What do you think of tho Delicious Apple?" In reply wc advise p'antlng u few trees of this fine apple In every family orchard, but do not recommend It as ono of the best commercial upples; for a number of reusons (which wc will bo glad to give those Interested, but cannot do so hero for want of space.) Wo hnvo the Delicious growing In our nursery n nice lot of them and arc glad to sell them to any of our patrons nt the same pi Ires nt which wo sell nil other varieties of nppfes; but we would not over-draw the fncts In order to Induce you to buy. Wo begun propugntlng them in IUI0 nnd huvo them growing In our nursery continuously since that time. Mr. Sol. .Heycr has tho genuine Delicious on his farm in I'm lies township, planted many years ago; and they liavo homo more or less regularly during the past few years. Mr. Will Sims lias them in bearing also, in his orchard near Helena, In Andrew County. I snw them on his trees at picking time In the fall of r.M.'i. Mr. Meyer and Mr. Sims nro-us reliable and trustworthy us any citizen of cither county, und It would be a mutter of hi'sl ness prudence for planters to get their statements and Judgment of Delicious us formed from experience, from n disinterested standpoint before planting it heavily. My own opinion of tho Delicious Is that while it is ono of our high class, fancy eating apples yet it does not at all compare with Jonuthan, Grimes (olden, or Illack Twig as u commercial variety here in northwest Missouri. Wo are here to servo our friends with the very hest of every thing In our line all fresh, thrifty, whole rooted stock, of all tho lending vurlcties. You get no "off grades" or "Job lot" stuff here. Our old patrons, scattered over the four best counties of Missouri Holt, Andrew, Nodnwny nnd Atchison stay with us, because we wilt not sell them anwthlng that la not all right. We arc prepared to take enre of your wants In our line, und if Is our constant aim to merit a continuance of your putronage In the years to'comc.
