The morning session was called to order at 9:15 a. m., by Supt. W. J. Johnston, who, in a few brief words.gave the object of the meeting. The pupils of Boom No. 8, of Morrison North Side school, then rendered some very pleasant music and four of the pupils gave a recitation, which was well received. This was followed with a prayer by Rev. J. W. Skinner, and then the first question on the program was introduced, which was, "Our School Finances: (a) Sources from which School Funds are Obtained; (b) Mismanagement of the Township Loaning Fund; (c) Other Features of the Subject. The discussion was opened by A. N. Abbott, of Ustlck, with a very able paper. and was followed by S. H. Hall, of Mt. Pleasant; M. B. Kelly, of Morrison.and Hon. S. M. Inglis, State Supterintend- ent of Schools. The next' question was "How Can the Graded Schools of Whlteside County be Improved?' This was opened by Rev. E. Browu, of Sterling, with an extremely able paper.and was followed by Rev. W. E. Leavitt, of Morrison. Prof. B. D. Woods, of Morrison, then gave an example of his music lessons, with the pupils from the ilrst primary, North Side school, which was very interesting. . Earl Harris gave a recitation which reflected much credit upon the young man. — MisB-Anna-JCorcoran's pupils- also sang a song very nicely under her direction and, after a few remarks from Supt. Inglis, the meeting was adjourned until 1:30 o'clock, • Afternoon Session, The afternoon session was called to order by Supt. Johnston at 1:40 o'clock, and, after a few remarks by that gentleman, the pupils of Room 7, South Side school, W. B. Paddock, teacher. sang a song entitled "Freedom's Flag." Miss Cora Eltner, of the same room, Rave a recitation entitled "Changing Color." Then Prof. Woods gave same more music lessons with the pupils of Room 7, to show the method used in the 'dally, work, which was greeted with hearty applause. The question of "flow Can the Un- graded Schools of Illinois be Improved,"' was opened by Supt. S. M. Inglis with a lengthy speech, which was very interesting. 'While the points which he took were good, yet they are not exactly applicable to the schools of this county,- for the-county-ochools in this section-have_near4y_ everything- that he advised. His points to the teachers were good; he advised them to be on the outlook for music, for the time is close by when they would have to pass examination in this branch. At the close of Mr. Inglis' speech, Charles W. Mitchell, of Round Grove, gave a short address, and advanced some very good points, which if they can be utilized, would be of material benefit to all county schools. Jonas H. Baer, of Sterling, also took part in the . discussion. He thought that the central examinations had been a benefit In some directions, while in others they had not been a benefit. He was also of the opinion that the press was somewhat to blame. At the close of Mr, User's speech Mr. Mitchell and Supt. Johnston took up Mr. Baer's reports regarding the press, Both think that he erred to some degree, and they both paid a high compliment to the newspapers The pupils of Room 8, South Side School, Miss Libble Fenton, then sang "New Hail Columbia," and Walter Gierson recited "The Terrible Fight," both of which were greeted with great applause. "Lincoln's Gettysburg Speech" was well rendered by Miss Laura Eidd and the recitation, "The Canal Boat," by Miss Genie Harrison, was one of the best things on the program. "Papa's Letter" by Miss Mabella Volght was excellent. Prof. H. C. Chaplin, of the Sterling School, was called upon and he responded with a few, remarks. He was followed by Supt. Inglis with some good advice to the High School scholars, after which a vote ot thanks was extended to Mr. Inglls for the interest taken by him. The hour being late.the meeting was then adjourned and all departed satis- fled that the day had been profitably passed. • „ Letter List.

M, SHOT MANY TKS. TWO HUNTERS MADE A HAUL RECENTLY. Howard Anderson and Reward J/t* Strffce Ifowts With 20fS I>nck« Shot In the Vicinity of Erie—Th«r Tell Their Trouble* To Sterling People. Howard Anderson, of near Hsrmon, and Seward Lee, of Polo, are the champion duck banters of the season. Tuesday afternoon,about 3:30 o'clock, a wagon containing two men, many docks and divers hunting irons, wended its way into the city. The horses and wagon were mud from top to bottom, and the entire outfit—men and all —looked as though some pretty, tough times had been seen. The t<vo gentlemen soy they had been to Erie on a hunting expedition and that they had enjoyed almost fabulous good fortune. It is evident that their story is true, for In their wagon were 205 ducks, all dead and ready for the market. Messrs. Anderson and Lee drove the entire, ^distance from Erie and they say they never saw the roads in such a terrible.-condition. For a distance of more than two miles, they claim, they drove through water which was up to the bottom of their rig. . ' " At times their travel was extremely perilous. All of tho streams were high and the men had some "tall" experiences. Notwithstanding their troubles, they are glad they went, and are the envy of all of*. the sportsmen in the town. The hunters left for their homes today. REAL ESTATE TRANSFERS. Frank H. Cox to Lafayette Cox, land in Erie, 86,800. James B. McCabe to John T. Me- Cabe, land in Tampico, $1,200. John F. Trimmer to E.
