THE FAIRMOUNT NEWS The Fainnount News published on Mondays and Thursdays obilo ils B As for the fox in the hen-house, he was dominated by both instincts in succession flight when that was possible, and paralysis when it was not. But even the foxiest fox is not a psychologist thinking how he will look to a farmer. o Gargoyle The second orchestra practiced Monday evening at 4 o'clock. Miss Sample had charge. Gerald Olfather returned to school Monday after a several days absence. Mrs. Gilbreath had charge of the convocation held today. Dr. Bedford of the Marion college spoke. Several students came to school Monday morning with the "stiff neck.' What's the cause? Cold weather? contagious example. If one man keeps ash heaps and tin cans and piles of decayed plants and disorderly litter, his neighbors catch the slovenly spirit. Soon the neighborhood becomes a dirty and frowsy suburb, from which possible residents turn away w ith dislike. So let us all pet out on some of these pleasant fall days, and give our grounds another going: over as thorough as they had in spring. Better still, we should have kept litter from accumulating all the summer, so that now there will be nothing to remove. "UP TO HEAVEN. So long as people believed in an obsolete "up towards Heaven, and an absolute "down' towards Hell, it was quite impossible to think clearly and correctly about a moving ball-shaped j earth, any part of which was as hard Now is the time to get in your supply of MOBILOILS for your tractor.
