' The business part of the city was profusely tJecprated, the bunting and flags and electrical devices' extending from one Bide of the street to the other. Nearly every residence all over, town was decked out in red, white and blue, and s >tne of the finer residences were nearly burled in patriotic colors. The encampment was admirably managed; there was not a jerk nor a bitch in the program. The persons composing the committees of arrangement deserve and have the thanks of all visitors for the manner in which they looked after the comfort and convenience of their guests. Those who attended tbe Encampment have nothing but praise for tbe beautiful city and its hospitable citizens.. Tuesday .the old soldiers began to pour into the city and every train during the day. and night brought visitors from some directions. The people ~ tfarew^bpecFthbir hotiBcd to.eucirnn~el: r |ent that while tbe many hotels were running over, there were many places at the disposal of the Entertainment Committee that stood ready to take quests if need be. The different sessions of the .Encampment proper were well attended and the ladies of the different women's organizations were busy as bees attending to their duties. Everybody was 'free .and happy. The camp fires each evening were so popular that n'ot balf the people could get into'the hall and the church in which the camp fires were held. During each session of the Encamp- "jnent Commander Cochran, was the master hand in the chair. He is one •of the ablest-presiding officers the En- •campmeut baa ever had. , • • The election of Commander for next in the selection of A. L. Mrs. Joseph Graff and Children .Have a f Narrow Eicupe.

Some One Haa to Fay for Every Lino of Type In a Newspaper. An exchange says every, line in a newspaper costs' something. If it is or the benefit of an individual it hould be paid for. It the grocer was asked to contribute groceries to one abundantly able to pay for them, he would refuse. The proprietor of a newspaper must pay for free advertis- ng if the beneficiary does not, and yet t is one 'of the hardest things to be earned by many that a newspaper has pace in its columns to rent and' must enttollve, To give it away would be as certainly fatal as for a landlord to urnish rent free, 1L Piiblishers-are-too- iberal.

It is our national desease, and nearly all complaints spring from this source. Remove the stomach difficulty and the work is doue.

Many pupils who started out very hesitatingly are beginning to work with mora, confidence. The figures show more thought and care. Parents, we want,you to notice this work wjieu the children bring it home.------—-====^~: No doubt, the best motive for studying a subject should be the interest they afford; but this cannot be aroused until the pupil enters the subject and sometimes not even then, hence the necessity for some external, definite motive. Examinations at the best are but means to an end. They should not bo the object of the teacher's tuition and no craming process should be required just before examination. The steady, unwavering system of work throughout the year wili, accomplish the best results.

The time of the graduates is being put on the graduating exercises. . - .. The campus presents a lively pana- rama at the noon recess these days. The Cadets are drilling;]and that is a goodly.equad. All who do not drill are observed or engaged in games. It requires an effort on the part of the teachers and pupils to keep work up ^o its best these' days. It would help the school amazingly to have all unite in their effort. A few of the pupils of No. 11 are planning a sketching excursion to the woods on Saturday. They promise to bring back drawings for the art exhibit in June. SOME QUEER BILLS. What Some Men Would Do If Tboy Could Bun Thing*.
