rafje the capital stock of the Stand
ard Oil has shrunk §80,000,000 in
value since Judge Landis render

ard Oil doesn't mind that. The
sum represents nearly two years
profits of the concern. The ordi
nary business man doesn't like to
see his investment shrink in value,
until two years of' profits are swal

ne a healthy human sympathy
for teachers and pupils in our
common schools. From this ex
perience and sympathy and some
observation besides, we are led to
remark that the present condition
of our schools can be maintained
only by a very considerable in
crease in III© salaries paid our
teachers. In some of the country
districts about Philip the pay re
ceived by the teacher may be
meant as a salany or it may be
that the board of directors has
merely perpetrated a proctical
jok©. Of course the conditions
are Mi very favorable for high
salaried teachers, u t'ordinary
horse sense, respect for the teach
er, and, if not that, common de
cency toward "the kids'5 demands
that a teacher should receive at
least the wages of an ordinary, day
laborer. et many a school in
Stanley county will be taught dur
ing the coming winter by some
homesteader for wages that
seem shamefully low even to a
newspaper mail. Next year these
districts will be in a position to do
better, and every opportunity
should be embraced that will raise
the standard of our schools by
raising the wages of our teachers.
In performing his self assumed
task of advisor in general to the
homesteaders of Stanley ccunty,
it becomes the writer's duty to
olfer a fresh suggestion. Winter
will be upon us in the course of a
few months, and the homesteader
who expects to spend the season
upon his claim, will do well to
prepare himself now for a little
cold weather. For the benefit of
those who have not spent a winter
in this state, it may be well to sug
gest that the ordinary frame shack
on the bleak, wind-swept prairie
is not quite as comfortable as a
cosey corner near the steam reg
ister in a city home. But a few
days work in sodding the sides
will make a shack fairly comfor
table. True, a sod house has a
rather ungainly, oncgallused ap
pearance. but it is warm neverthe
less. By nil means sod your house,
if you expect to winter in it. You
will then be able to warm it
without warming your entire
claim. Besides you will be warm
and snug as the traditional bug.
Then when spring comes you tear
away the sod and have a summer
home. The matter is worth while
thinking about anyway.
