dent of Lavaca county, who had
been invited by oui County
Judge to make a talk on the in-
stitute work donor in Lavaca
county. He made a well out-
lined speech on the disadvan-
tages of three or more institutes
a year and tho advantages of a
week’s institute at the beginning
of the school term. The profes-
sor was at his best and talked
for more than an hour in an elo-
quent and enthusiastic way of
the need of county institutes and
dwelled at length upon the lack
of uniformity of system in pub-
lic schools, and was heartily and
deservedly upplauded at the con-
clusion. Supt. Guenther's plan
of holding a' week's institute at
the beginningof the school term,
and bolding local institutes be-
tween times was unanimously
adopted by the Gonzales County

Saturday night, Nov. 18. Don’t
forget the date as there is busi-

hooves every farmer to consider
and act in this great movement,
as it is entirely a farmer's organ-
ization. Farmers shouldn’t hesi-
tate to come in and lend a help-
ing hand, as it is to the interest
of all who till the soil. Don’t
one wait for the other, or stay
out to save dues and conclude
that “if it proves u success I
will be benefitted anywuy !”
The expense is a mere trifie.
The idea is, put your shoulder
to the clogged wheel and give a

applied, something will move.
