F. Quickenstedt returned
Tuesday from a two week’s trip
to Mineral Wells and Athens.
The Senior Class of the
Pleasant High School, which
i just begun the work of studying
civil government, were given a
unique lesson along this line
Tuesday afternoon, when a dep
uty sheriff appeared in the
school room and read a subpoena
summoning each member of the

: There was considerable specu-
lation among the majority of
the students, as they had never
been before a grand jury and
did not know what was to be ex-
pected of them. The girls were
somewhat frightened, and a few
of the boys were a little ill at
case as they were marched in a
body from the school building to
the grand jury room with the
deputy in charge of them.
TTpon reaching the jury*1 room
one of the boys was placed un-
der oath, and members of the
body began questioning him in
regard to any violations of the
law, especially as to defacing
public property by writing and
cutting on school desks, viola-
tions of the speed limit on high-
ways by students coming to and
from school, cheating in .lessons,
etc. During the questioning the
student was reminded several
times that he was under oath,
and correct answers v;cro given.
After a while the class waa
told that the questioniiig Was
merely for the purpose of 'ex-
plaining to them the way
examinations were co:

NEW LAMP BURNS 91% AIR
Beats Electric or Gas
A new oil lamp that gives an
amazing brilliant, soft, white
light, even better than gas or
electricity, has been tested by
munity so that their value could
be demonstrated. This of course
necessitated much individual
work, but as soon as the value
was seen the work has increased I
until now you can hardly meet
a farmer who does not intend to j
terrace as soon as possible.
Many communities, as well as
individuals have secured the tcr-
| racing levels this year,, and
have learned the details in lay-
| ing off and constructing a good
| system of terraces. As we see
I the proposition, this is the only
1 way that the demand is going to

farmers learn how to do the en-
gineering work themselves.
