A WISJ3 INNOVATION. plan to Consolidate Country Schools Being Tried. Edncational Results 6ood and Cost of School!) Cheapened, The plan of consolidating country schools, which has just been put into practice in Webster township, Wayne county, this state, is proving a success and It is expected that it will be adopted by many townships. The plan was Inaugurated by Superintendent Wineburg, of Wayne county, and has now been in operation two years. lu the township where the consolidation was effected there were three school buildings a considerable distance apart. One of these buildings, centrally located, serves the same purpose. Children are conveyed to and Qfrorn gscbool by hacks. Two conveyances are used and paid for by the township trustee. It has been demonstrated that better results in school work are obtainable where tne children are assembled in one building, and, further than this, the new plan is more economical than tbe old, as the cost of maintaining the three schools was considerably greater. The plan affords better ichool opportunities, because pupils can be graded and more satisfactorily instructed . Sleighs.

The Rich Valley Oil company is in a quandary as to what shall be done wnb. the product of tbe weil recently drilled in. The well is a quarter of a mile or more from the railroad, and to haul one product In a wagon to a tankoo the cars would be impractical. To put in &• pipe line the distance would hardly-pay while there is only one well in the vicinity. This thing may trouble the Cass county prospectors when they find oil. The well being drilled in at Twelve Miie is about three miles from the Eel river road, the third well of the New Waverly company IB about two miles from the Wabuh road and the Logansport company's well on the Rogers farm IB four miles from a railroad.
