The amount 10 be spent is $208,000, and if this mon ey is wisely expended, the eastern section of Putnam county will be able within a couple of years to boast of brick-paved highways leading to all important communities. Palatka will be the center from which these brick roads will radiate to San Mateo, Hast ings and Federal Point. There is al so included on the program the pav ing of the road to Rice Creek in the direction of the Clay county line along the western shore of the at. Johns. The result of the election is pecu liarly of interest to St. Johns county, in that it means when the work in Putnam is completed and the one-mile stretch in St Johns from the present brick highway in Hastings to the Put nam county line is also finished, there will be a continuous brick road from the St Johns county line at Duval right through to Palatka.

More than 60 per cent of the school children of this country leceived all their education from wo men. In New York, 92 per cent of the boys never come in contact with a man teacher. Whatever principles of manhood, patriotism and honor they possess have been given them by the women teachers of the lower grades. More Girls in High School. The percentage of children in a closely populated city who advance to high school, or even complete the grammar grades, is relatively small. It is smaller for boys than it is for girls. One reason for the increas ing preponderance of women teach ers is the larger number of girls who remain in school long enough to re ceive the qualifying education.

In Philapelphia the pro portijjl is even greater, because of the nveat commercial high school, exclu sively for girls, which turns out year ly 400 graduates. The Philadelphia Board of Education established a school of pedegogy for boys as a rival to its magnificent normal school for girls in the hope, that it would at tract more young men to the teach er's profession. It has not accom plished this. Notwithstanding the fact that the young pedagogues start with a considerably higher salary than the girls from the normal school, the schoolmarms in the Quaker City are still increasing and a few of them are receiving salaries closely approaching those paid to men.

Clarence Poe, who edits the Pro gressive Farmer and who is one of the best known agricultural experts in the United States, is sure cotton ought to bring twelve cents this fall. He argues that if a seventeen million bale crop sold last year at planting time at ten cents that a ten million . .i. i ij i or a twelve million crop snouiu oe worth all of twelve cents. Mr. Poe thinks every farmer should hold his cotton. He argues that the crop is from three to five million bales short of the actual needs of the world, and that every single bale of this sea son's crop will be consumed, in addi tion to millions of bales from last year's surplus. The difference in price between ten- cent cotton and twelve-cent cotton is a matter of a quarter of a billion dol lars to the farmers of the South, and Mr. Poe is sure that his plan will save that enormous sum to the farm ers. He urges that cotton seed will briner hieh prices, and that if the farmers of the South will hold their staple, the higher price for cotton is certain. That Quarter of a billion spells the . difference between having enough to live on and abounding prosperity, in the opinion of Mr. Poe. Escambia s small cotton croo saves. the county from feeling any very di rect effect from the fluctuations of cotton, but the south is too closely united in its financial interests for us not to read with interesst the chance the South has to make money on its most valuable crop. lhe farmers here would do well to heed Mr. Poe's ai'vice until the market goes to twelve cents or higher.

TUi' squeeze play is one of the pretti est in baseball when successful. When, it tubs no piny makes u bull team look uioic foolish. The play is best worked n iili one out. a luuiicr uu third and a iuu needed to either t.e or win the KUine. .Many of the best base runners when :i lioui to make lhe play create lhe impressUm that there is no inten tion of pulling it by taking only a fair lead oil' I In- base and standing still. The very imuuriit the pitcher starts his uovcuiciit the man on third tears for the iliiie. If in any way the intention to use ilic p.ay is tifipcd off or foreseen It is uu easy matier for the catcher to break il up by culling for a waste ball Ihat is so wide of the plate that it is impossible for lhe batter to bunt IL It is uu easy mailer to touch the base i-ii unci' out and make the team trying lhe squeeze appear ridiculous. But a siiei essl'ul completion of the play usu ally puis the team in the field In the air and makes them look equally fool ish. , " The squeeze pluy does not call for a hard hitler or a good hitter, but It does call for a man with a good eye, a fellow who invariably hits the ball, even though it may not go safe. If lhe batsman limits the ball tn the air an easy double play Is usually the re sult, if he is able to keep the ball oa lair ground there Is seldom a chance to stop the run at the plate. It is not necessary to have a fast man on third to make this play, for most tif the play depends on the ability of the batsman, to keep the hull on the ground. Billy Kvaus in St. Mcboiu-. Luck.
