To say it was a grand success scarcely gives those people justice. Mr Woudall is a professional tencber of thirty-four years experience, lie has taught in a number of statef, but for tbe past te eral years has teen in Madison and adjoining counties. Prof. Woodalls had in this school about torty pupils and to day he put them through a" most rigid ex amination. They were classed in some six or eight grades. Tbe small ones of course were given the easy work while Ve large, or advanced pupils, were assigned to the most difficult problems tbe professor could give. A large blackboard on one side of tbe church house had lieen arranged for the occasion.

Sides resalt. If killing is done while weather is cool, say frosty, meat may not be stored for four to five days after butchering, but if warm it should be stored within 12 hours. Do not cut off chin bone,, as this ruins the ham, and in storage they cure as well with chin left on. Time to be stored: Thirty days is sufficient. When taken from storage wash in warm 'water, wipe dry, sew up in canvas or Iiomespun hang up and smoke every third day for two weeks. Use green hickory wood for smoking. Salt furnished at a reasonable price. Madison Electric Power Co.
