DURKEE, MANAGER OFFICIAL CITY PAPER OCTOBER 5th, 1911 School Notes Forrest Davis is a new pupil in the second room. Harry Phillips is still out of school on account of sore eyes. The wind on Tuesday was the cause of some anxiety for it seem ed that the large glass windows would be blown from the sash. One pane was cracked across the two upper corners. A number of pupils in rooms one and two had a half holiday last Friday which they earned by having good grades in deportment, punctuality and attendance for the month. If either or both of the two up per rooms lias a record at the end of this month of 100 per cent in punctuality, 98 per cent in attend ance and an average of 97 per cent in deportment they will be given a half holiday. Pupils from the sixth grade up have shown a very commendable and progressive spirit in subscrib ing for papers that will enable them to be informed on current events.

"Current Events" will be used principally in the grammar room while "The Paihfinder" will come to folks in the high school. Growth of Alfalfa Anderson Michael has on dis play in the window of the Bank of Philip a sample of alfalfa which he obtained from a twenty-five acre tract, that is from twelve to fifteen inches in heighth. It was sowed last spring and not enough moisture fell to sprout the seed until the recent rains of more than a month ago. Since that time it sprouted and came up and has grown about twelve inches. Mr. Michael was completely surprised at the wonderful growth this Held had made in a growing period of a little over one month. He said it would easily average twelve inches in heighth throughout the entire Held. Accidently Shot Pierre Dakotan: Thursday even ing Miss Holland, the eldest daugh ter of Mr. and Mrs. John Holland of East Pierre, accidently shot herself with an automatic 32 cal ibre revolver. The young lady was preparing to retire, and think ing she would take the weapon to her room, reached up to take it from the top of a cupboard. Not knowing that it was loaded, she handled it rather carelessly, and in some way suddenly discharged it as it hung by her side in one hand, the bullet passing through the flesh just above her ankle. Fortunately, the bone was not struck, so that she will not have so serious a wound from which to recover as might have been the case.

"George, dear, I've got a diary and made up my mind to keep it." "All right, my love. It's a habit that never becomes ohronic. The diary ii gilt-edged, I suspect?" "Yea, dear, and with a lovely Hmp morocco cover." "And it matches your new walking suit, of course?" "Why, how did you know that? And It has a sweet little pencil in a cunning groove." "Charming. There's a calendar b* ilde, no doubt?" "Yes, dear. And there's a page about foreign postage and things." "Great! And a list of the wedding anniversaries, from 'soothing sirup* to diamond.'"

Little Willie, having only one eye, did not like to attend school, says Mack's National Monthly. One aftei* noon he stayed home, and his mother sent him to the store for a loaf of bread. On the way back he stopped at the school. The examiners were there to award a prize of five dollars in gold to the smartest boy or girl In the class. Just as Willie entered the teacher held up one finger. Then Willie held up two Angers. This time she held up three fingers, and Willie held up his ftst. She held up an apple, and Willie held i£ the loaf of bread. She called him to the desk and gave him the five dollars. The examiners inquired of the teach* er why she had awarded the prise to Willie. 8he replied: "I held up one finger, meaning thero is one Supreme Being. He held up two, meaning the starting of the raoe, Adam and Eve I held up three fingers, mean* ing Faith, Hope and Charity He held up his fist, meaning in unity there Is strength. I held up an apple, meaning the downfall of man. He held up the bread, meaning the staff of life. Then I fire him the prize." An Artthmetlo Snake.
