Last week we spent a session in school, as we make it a point to visit the school several times during a term, (and we consider the time used to good advantage) we are able to judge at the advancement made. For several reasons, especially severe sickness all through the term, the attendance has not been very large and somewhat irregular, and the progress was necessarily retarded on that account. The Principal, Miss Emma J. Humphrey, of Wheaton, 111., the first lady Principal since the school has become a graded one, has superintended the school successfully. She is a lady of high culture and attainments, besides being a disci" plinarian, exercising that discipline which cements student to teacher; mild but thorough and effectual. Our much esteemed friend, Ira C. Kling, and as an additional honor, County Superintendent of Public Instruction, is down seeing our school marms and viewing their work.

Hybrid Seed Corn Must Be of First Generation Cross Seed corn shipped in interstate commerce as "hybrid seed com," in order to comply with the Federal Seed act, must be seed of the first generation of a cross between strains of different parentage and involving one or more inbred lines of com or their combinations. Officials of the Bureau of Plant Industry U. S. Department of Agriculture, in making this announcement, emphasized that the Federal Seed act prohibits fraudulent misbranding of any seed in interstate commerce. Second and succeeding generations of such corn crosses arc much inferior in productivity to first generation hybrid seed, say seed investigators of the bureau. Disappointment Is sure to follow, they say, when such seed is planted in the belief it possesses the vigor of the firt generation hybrid .
