District 43. The following i my
report on the Benton County School
Fair: The Beeds were distributed
among the pupile, each pupil choos
ing the seeds he wishea to plant
The hoys chooaog the vegetable
eeeds while the girls choose mostly
flower seeds. Mu h interest has
been shown. in the work and if con
ditions are favorab:e I think their
display will be a creditable one,
considering the size of the school
and the age of the pupile.
Much eocouragement has been
given the pupils both at school and
at home, and 1 think the interest
will be stimulated by the parents
during the summer as they have
shown much interest in the work.
Tne school may not have a full ex
hibit, but expects to make a good
showing in individual work.
