The American Farmer says that
down in Oklahoma farmers are form-
ing "acre clubs," each member tak-
ing one acre for an experimental
crop, doing his best with it, and
when the saason is over reporting
his experience, inclusive of mistakes,
and describing his methods. This
is the most practical form of agri-
cultural education and the plan
might well be adopted elsewhere
Few farmers are so skilled in agri-
cultural science that they cannot
learn something from their asso-
ciates. The Oklahoma plan is a kind
of extension of the experiment sta-

Minnesota, who seems to be the
principal rival of Mr. Bryan for the
Democratie nomination talks like a
true Democrat. In an interview in
Chicago last Wednesday he said:
"I know nothing of my strengih in
other States. I have done little to-
ward a campaign. I understand
that Minnesota will send a solid
delegation for me. I have received
many letters Irom prominent citi-
zens urging ma to put myself active-
ly in the fietd fot the Presidency.
However, if the party decides that
Mr. Bryau can better represent it in
the field for the Presidency, I will
be one of his strongest supporters.
There are some of his policies I do
not believe in, but I would be ready
to support him on other grounds.
We are warm personal friends."

Therefore he eyed liis one dress suit

It was with uneasy gait and sweat-

wife's arm in the first waltz. "I'm

whispered. "It has," he groaned as

education. County Superintendent
Klaerner spoke on the subject of
education, explaining its usefulness
and importance in this world, also
how Texas rankec' with her sister
states, and Washington county with
the other counties. He advocated
the district system, claiming the
people misunderstood it two years
ago, hence, blindly rejected it.
Prof. J. E. Willis, of Chappell
Hill, who seeks the office of county
superintendent at the hands of the
suffragans, addressed the assemblge
on the topic, "Aims of the Public
Schools," eaying that its aims were
manifold, and the vocation was
