FORK, Special correspondence. ) FOUK, November 21.— The young folks in this neighborhood were invited to spend Tuesday evening at Mrs. Eddy's to celebrate Charlie Smith's eighteenth birthday, with his cousin Helen. All spent a pleasant evening with games, charades, music, etc., and maple sugar for sweetening. School begins next Monday. Corn is nearly husked. Thanksgiving will find most of the corn fields stripped of corn. Miss Laura Faus is visiting at Mrs. Eddy's. _ \VHITTI5MOBK. Special Correspondence. WitiTTEMoiiE, Nov. 26.— II. Munch is on the sick list. We hope to see him out again soon, and at his accustomed place in the store." Last Wednesday evening quite an accident happened to Frank Scott. While driving a team his loaded gun-which he was handling— exploded, badly wounding his right arm. It was Teachers' Department. WHEN MOUTH MEETS MOUTH THEN COMES THE TUG OF JAW—GEORGE •WAS O! RILEY, AND HE 1'OUSDED THE GBOUND WITH HIS ADVEKBA11Y. Bancroft Register: We are told that Bro. Ingham and Geo. E. ]Joyle had. a battle—witli words—on .the streets in Algona Saturday, and that the former was somewhat out-talked. Both gentlemen know better than to engage in such controversies, and we hope no newspaper man will allow himself ,to be drawn into such an encounter again BUT NO—ONLY ONE OF HABVEY'S BRILLIANT DASHES OF HUMOn. Algona Courier: Nonsense! They were only laying plans for next year s •campaign. Harvey says the defeat ol last year was a mistake, and that lie wants the same old ticket nominated again, that they may be vindicated at the polls. He would substitute Bro. Platt for Wm. Ward, as Wm. has moved out of the county. The plan would unite the republican press, anil the democrats would have to scratch hard. IMPARTIAL ESTIMATE OF "UNHirOUTANT DISCORDANT FACTOR," »* BOYLE. Harvey, you have always been an unimportant discordant factor in the politics of Kossuth county. A Ixepub lican on the surface for the mercenary purpose of gaining financial patronage from Republicans in office. A Demo- •crat for all other purposes. We thought when we saw you presiding at the late county convention that the whole thing would be struck with mumb palsey, and any candidate who could come out of the wreck would be a dandy. You have been the Judas ties a specialty. Many cases of cross eyes, club feet, curvature of spine, etc., entirely cured. Testimonials furnished upon application.

Henry, Chicago, 111., who has practiced medicine many years, says: "Last spring he used and prescribed Clarke's Extract of Flax (papillion) Skin Cure in 40 or 50 cases and never knew a case where it failed to cure. I know of no remedy I can rely on so implicitly. Positive cure for all diseases of the skin. Applied externally. Clarke's Flax Soap is best for babies. Skin cure $1, soap 2oc at L. A.

The schools oFfhis county are in need of a few more first cities teachers. If there are any in this county who wish to teach they will confer a favor by letting Miss Carey know before Dec. 1st. The teachers don't seem to take hold of the opportunities so kindly offered by the IlEi'irnLtcAN and Courier. Let Us come to their columns with all difficulties, and if we find everything lovely and no difficulties in the way let us make some for each other. Let us write so much that they will have a chance to reject some good things from the many good and bad that we offer. I append a couple of examples from a mental arithmetic which are not very hard yet require a little thought to solve: "If a farmer plows one acre of land for every four cows, and allows one acre for pasture for every five cows, how many acres will it require to keep sixty cows?" "My friend's watch loses 2 minutes in three hours, and mine gains 20 minutes a day; they were set by correct time yesterday noon and are now 80 minutes apart. What time is it?" GKA.MMA11. 1.

Fred WiHson keeps the Iowa soft coal I for sale. Best in the market. The last annual report of the county superintendent contains information that is certainly of interest to the tax payers of the county. It is an exhibit of the use made of one-half of the county tax for the previous year. It is the financial part of the problem that is being worked out in 185 school districts in Kossuth county—the problem of the future of our children, the place they are to be fitted to occupy in society, in business and in the affairs of state. The other part of the problem is not so easily written. It has its factors in the fitness of the teacher, her proper appreciation of the interests entrusted to her care, the influences at work in the homes ot the children, and the moral encouragement and support the patrons have given the teacher. We should have a supplementary report from the teachers. How many parents visited you at the school and had a kind word for you and the pupils? How many families were careful that their children were never absent and never tardy? Were the pupils always supplied with just the books, slate, pencils and paper that they needed? And did each director visit the school at least once each month to see whether you had everything possible for comfort and equipment? Next to the children .themselves the parents have the largest interest in the work of the school, but how seldom do thep appear to realize that it is so. If we should also have a report from the patrons of the schools, the returns to be expected from this annual investment of fifty thousand dollars would not be so uncertain. IIow many teachers followed their pupils to their homes and showed a real interest in them and their parents? IIow many introduced some general exercise in singing, or supplementary reading, or the relation of interesting facts in history and biography, or the description of other scenes and places, thus arousing in. the pupils an interest in the big world'that lies beyond - the ; -horiibrt- ot their own district. Our localpapers are liberal in opening their columns to teachers, and others interested in school work. We can suit them no better than by making free use of their columns for the discussion of all subjects of general interest. What is the problem in some study, in government, in method or in ways and means in which you would like some suggestion? What can you suggest from your own experience that will very likely be helpful to another? We are still selling Boots and Shoes very cheap.
