Twfldajr Evening, July 7,1914. THE D E C A T U R -REVIEW Page Nirii OUR CITY r«r I Am · Cltl««B «f JTo Mean City." For a rood many years Decatur fine hart an enviable reputation for tho efficiency of Its public schools. The «fficlency of the. public schools Is no; based upon the n mount of mon«?v which they cost although t h a t must hav« ft direct rein t Ion to efficiency. Kor Is It based on tho n u m b e r of pupils tn tho schools for t h a t Is prlin.i- rUy dependent upon the n timber of persona of school aire, nvrr which « h c .schools ha\o no control. Efficiency rnunt hft measured by t h * q u a l i t y of the *d\ie.itiomil \vo-k clone und hy th* proportion of t h e s*hjol population t h a t IK b r o u g h t u n d e r nn1 kept under the I n f l u e n c e of t h n srhools.

The school population and the school enrollment has been growing; factor for the last six or seven years than tho school authorities could provide proper facilities for. But the Important fact la that while the school census shows that In G years there has been a prim of HO per cent, the school enrollment f h o w s a gain of 28.4 per cent, ana the average number belonging to thf- chool8 shows a gain of 2C.3 per cent. In ISO? the total number enrolled was 5,039; In 1913 It was 6,573, In 1P07 1.097 dronped out of school for various reasons; in 1913 with 1,409 more pupils (n the schools only 43 more dropped out, and this notwith- s t a n d i n g w* more year had been addsd t h ^ school course. The total num- · of cases of tardiness In 1907 was 4.070, in 1913 the total was 3,172. This I n c o n t r o v e r t i b l e evidence of a dist i n c t gain in efficiency and no o t h e r ' i t v oi' I l l i n o i s can equal it. Local Notices. ThM* Notice* An f»!d Adnrttetnc.

Seventeen hundred and twenty-one bushels of wheat off thirty-five acres or an average of 49 1-6 bushels an acre is the yield just threshed out on the Gerber farm near Argenta, farmed by C. E. Brlcker. Another field of forty acres adjoining this banner field threshed out 1,460 bushels, an average of 3G! bushels to the acic. This is the heat record yet reported for the 1914 wheat crop In central Illinois. The wheat was raised on the 240 acre farm of P. E. Gerber, the banker- f u r m o r of Argenta. Mr. Gerber Is president of the Gerber State bink and Is largely Interested In farm lands. His son-in-law, C. E. Bricker, farms the 240-acre plat on which the above record was realized and ho farms it scientifically under Mr. Gerber's direction. ROTATION PLAN. The five year crop rotation plan is carried out. The land Is planted in corn 'or two years, one year oats, one year wheat and one year clover. This rota- Ion brings the present large wheat crop the f o u r t h crop following clover. Mr. Brlrker was unable to get a good land oC rlover on the f n r t y acre plot rid he blames this fact for the difference of nearly thirteen bushels In the average of the two fields. T'o the Hessian f l y Mr. Get her blames he loss of about five bushels of wheat o the acre. STUBBLE PLOWED, The oats stubble was plowed last ugust to a depth of from eight to ten Inches by a steam plow. Mr. Oerber be- ! lleves in c u l t i v a t i n g the grain before it IB planted as a large factor in successful farming. He was well repaid for putting the soil In the best possible condition. The total yield of the 76 acres of wheat was 3,181 bushels. It was sold to the Argenta Grain company at 75 cents a bushel, bringing $:,385.75. quite a neat sum. It was harvested with the aid of three binders, one of which was pulled by a tractor, and ten shockers. Mr. Gerber's son-in-law, Mr. Bricker, has sixty-five acres of corn which Is c o m i n g along in f i n e shape but needs rain badly. Ha estimates his oats, of which ho has thirty-five acres, will yield 30 bushels to the acre. M A R K E T S CHICAGO BOARD OF TRADE QUOTATION rurn!ih«4 by Ware ft I*l»n4.) Chicago.
