la regard to the school Fair I
foatre not sent you a report for tbe
reason uat I have cotnparativf-ly
little to report. My boys do tot
wish to tahe part, paying that as it
comes in the middle of tsm harvest
eaeon thev cannot well attet d. I
have interested most of ihe girls
nd they have made li ts of the
contests they wish to fnter. The
seed 8 sent have been distributed,
and pamphlets sent into every
borne. But I caorjot get the enthu
siasm aroused that tbtrs ouglt o
be. Tbe matter may be brought
flip at tbe partnta' meeting and per
Ciaps if the older folks will tncour
ge them, tbe pupils will exert
themselves to make a creditable ex-
libit. The primary room has been
o; disorganized this year, that noth
ing can be expected from the little
folks if these parents do not, them
selvee. take the matter in band.

is that the court will force the com
pany to sell it to actual seitler at
$a-5o per acre.'in tacts not to ex-
ceea too acres. Mill another coo
ttnhon is that farther legislation by
by c ingress : will be necessary
to put the land on - the mar
ket. In either case it seems to be
tbe view that the'; persons .who get
it will have to be "actual settlers
within "the" full meaning of the
term. That would mean that the
buyer would have to actually live
on the land, make it his home, and j
do those other. things .necessary .to
constitute a bone ffde residence.
This would be very likely to be in
sisted on if there is'.; a lorfaiture of
thecompany's hold to t,he land at
the present prices, the idea being
that if the corporation should be
made to obey the Iawj the "full
terms of the law in providing its
transfer to the buyers would also
have to be complied with, which
would mean a genuine residence on
the property so that the require
ments that it should go only to
actual settlers" would be carried
out. Further movements in tre
matter will be watched with much

My pupils are making good prep
aration fer the School Fair and are
looking forward to it with anticipa
tion. From the moment we re-
ceived the packages of seeds to the
present time, there, has been a great
desire among the pupils to help
make the fair succeeeful. The ma
-jority of the pnplls have entered the
agricultarl contistandmany of Mum
now have the pleasure of eesirg
their plants growing nicely. Be
sides having the school well repre
. eented in this line we are also plan
ning to be represented in several of
tho other contests.
Such credentials as he prepares are
supposed , to give the claimant, a
firm chance to file. For the pres
em it appears mat no Dungs are
made, but that this detail is to be
attended to, later on. The Monroe
claimants idcludes most of the prom
inent citizens in and cut of the town.
The Times informant said Saturday
that, several dozen persons had en
listed in the scheme.
Of course, nobody knows what
the outcome will be. The corpora
tion will hold to the lands as long
as there is any law for it. In some
instances these lands have attained
a great value. Even the remedy by
which the lands are ti be made ob
tainable by the public is not de
termined. . One claim is that the
whole grant should be forfeited to
the public domain, and the railroad
has no further daim on it. Another
