A calamity befell Thomas Wark and family Monday morning of this week which has rendered them home less, for a time at least. As the women of the family were doing the washing, a small quantity of gasoline was pour ed into the boiler of hot water when the natural, result followed an ex plosion, and immediately the kitchen was In Uames. There was no more than time for everybody to get out before the house was all allre and the destruc tion of it was inevitable. 'Loss on house and contents 81.000. Insurance 8.7X). Mr. Wark lives about live miles north and west of the city, and Just now when farmers are so very busy the loss comes hard. J!ut it would be much worse were it coming on winter. The granary and two tents are be ing brought, in use for living apart ments until a new house can be built, which will be as soon as possible. The community sympathizes with Mr. Wark and family. School Picnic. Marguerite Worden closed a very successful term of Bchool in District No. C, Urockway township, on Friday, May 21st." A picnic was held in Mr. Ohmer's grove on the banks of Mill Creek where the children Bpent a very pleasant day fishing, swinging, riding rafts and many other amusements. Well filled baskets furnished by the mothers and oranges and lemonade by the teacher were greatly enjoyed, by all. Miss Worden has taught this school four successive years and has been very successful. Several pupils have gradu ated from this school and we under stand that twelve of these will enter Yale high school next year. She is greatly loved andj respected by parents and children. The school ollicers show their appreciation of her services by asking her to take the school another year. The children presented Miss Worden with a beautiful gold belt pin and heartily wish that she maybe their teacher next year. Henry Ohmer re ceived the prize for catching the larg est lish.

In the last week's issue of your paper appeared an article, headed "Is Our School Making (iood?" In the same the reader found a comparison of the Yale eighth grader and the rural eighth grader on a test in Arithmetic. Upon reading the same, the rural teacher and pupils could not help but feel belittled, until they thought of the source of the article and the dilTerent conditions under which they must labor. Fearing that some of the read ers will fail to think of this contrast, allow me to here mention a few of the differences. 1. The rural student came from a school where one teacher had under her supervision from six to eight grades, the Yale teacher having but one grade in her charge. 2. That during the past term the rural student has been pursuing regu larly seven or eight subjects instead of four or five as is required in the graded school. 3. That for a period of recitation in arithmetic, history, etc., the Yale student had at least forty minutes with the undivided attention of the teacher, while the rural student if lucky had ten, fifteen or perhaps twenty minutes and while the teacher gave instruction in various branches she kept one eye on the remaining pupils in the room. 1. That your pupils were tested under conditions to which they were accustomed and were not annoyed by the new surroundings or by the glaring eyes of a strange pedagogue. Further, 1 would like to ask how many of your pupils, an examination being held in your rooms lor two suc cessive days, would not lind the oppor tunity to see questions which were be ing used.'1 Slow, indeed, must they be if they did not! Now with these suggestions before you, with your well equipped rooms and your "better" teachers, do not ask yourselves "Is our school making good?" Hather question why it should not be making good. However, when you wish to make a comparison, take the work of pupils and teachers who labor under conditions similar to yours and then you will be Justified in pat ting yourself on the back, if you lind the contrast you did recently. As a teacher or several years exper ience in the rural schools, I must say I would not exchange ray graduates for any of the average city or village eighth graders, knowing that a major ity of superintendents and principals admit that the rural student often carries the best credits in high school owing to the fact that back in the old schoolhouse, with the busy teacher, he has learjjed the greatest lesson of life, "to depend upon himself. Now, rural teacher, after reading last week's paper, do not sit down and say "Are our schools making good?" thus trying to make yourselt believe that your efforts are without returns. Just console yourself with the thought that you have done the best you could under the circumstances and Bay down deep in your heart, with our elhcient commissioner, that "Our Hural Schools are Making (Jood."
