The point of this action lien in
the fad Hint the term of school is
thus cut slioit tlnce weeks and, it
being by order of the board, 'the
teacher ex'HtcU to collect jtoy for
the full timu. Tho term really
clnwd only n week earlier than the
date mentioned in the contract, hut
the teacher haddost two weeks of
teaching by rcflfcon of illne.-w lust
winter and it had generally been
understood tlmt he would make it
tip Mt the end of the term. Cloning
the school on the HllKHlion that
tfie public health required it or made
it ttdvlmibl, leA the teacher to
claim Miy for three week tlmt hu
has not taught, wiide from thewcek

cloaed by agreement of the board
on Hccoittit of the Htnnllpox scare.
Director Wiedt construed this as too
much of a grnft and not at nil war
ranted by the conditions prevailing
and he said mi in plain words. His
construction of the motive forthe
action of the majority was rerouted
with at least equal blnntinm.

payment for the thrte week will be
resisted in tho courts by the minor

be found naeoamry to go so far to
prevent It. v
The majority of the board had
entered into contract with Mr.
Hampton to teach hare again next
year hut the friction ovur the mat
ter had made his position Ixiforcthc
loard and in the community m no
pleasant that he oxprutwud doubt
alxittt returning next fall.
On uggeUou of Mr. Hampton
that some .provision be made for
starting a school library, for which
purioe he had raked ?335 by mi
entertainment last mouth, the board
apioinlod J. M. Lawrence to take
charge of the fund and to name the
other member of a committee of two
to carry out the project. It is ex
pected that the school library will
be in place by the time school shall

Cultivation of Alfalfa.
The editor of the Moro Observer
has made a discovery in Sherman
county. It came to him with all
the freshness of an inspiration. K
led him to dig up some useful in
formation, however and it may be
turned to account by people of this
section. Here is the Observer ar
ticle: "Coniing up from Diggs on the"
3d our attuntion was attracted to
several fine looking fields of nlfulfii
below Wafco. We learned that the
experiment has been n very success
ful one in producing alfalfa hay for
cows in Unit section upon dry soil.
Hut one crop r annum, however,
can Ihj depended upon. J 11 costing
about for a good hay crop it may k
Well to hunt up alfalfa talks. 'We
have never done so because it' is
generally admitted that the plant
requires much water, etc. Hut af
ter seeing what we sow below Was
co hist Sunday we have begun to
study alfalfa, mid we learn from
I'rof. Cotlrcll's experiment that
water kills alfalfa. Of course it
thrives bunt on heavy soil, and,
while it requites considerable mois
ture, under no circumstance nmy
water I left to stand 011 alfalfa for
longer than out hour. I'rof. Col
trull is the agriculturalist at the
Maiihatteu school, and his writing
is the product of very careful ob
nervation of the life of the plant,
and of its natuml friends and una
niios. Alfalfa puts a lot of money
into the pockuts of Kansas farmers,
and it is not unlikely that the per
caul of iiicomo from this crop would
lxt increased materially if every
producer in Shorman comity knew
what is .set forth in the work with
alfalfa, of thu Kansas Agricultuial
"A few selections frflm it may
serve to give an idea of what the
book contains. Prof. Colt roll states
that moisture is an absolute neces
sity to the growth of the young
plant, but too mud) soaking itf as
dangerous aa drought. A soil
which will hold n good supply of
water without being .soaked, is what
is wanted. The surface should be
well looftcned and furnished with
niliogen, which can bcaccompllshcd
by planting soy beans or something
of like nature before seeding with
alfalfa. The plant is itself a great
nitrogen producer when it is once
growing, but it needs careful nour
ishment when getting rooted.
"Hqfore planting alfalfa it is n
good idea to raise a crop of soy
Ixkiiis, cow ptas, Canada field ioam
or clover. These stock the soil
with nourishment and help to kill
weeds. It is Mated that it is better
to work for two or three years, with
a field before putting in alfalfa than
to plant the seed in unfitted oil.
No rule will fit all soils, sandy ones
often requiring jMckiug, which may
be kectired by pasturing with cattle
or with a subsurface packer. Sow
whenever the soil, moisture, seed
Iwd add wtjuther are in proper con
dition. Do not sow until you have
all of these just right) if you have
to wait a year or two. Alfalfa
yields crojis for many years from
one seeding, and several crops each
year. A poor stand means a low
yield every cutting every year, &o
long as the alfalfa stands.
"No stock should be let on the
field during (he first year. After it
has oiice become firmly started the
crop is safe for ten years. It will
prodilce profitably with ordinary at
tention for that length of timu and
uililef salubrious conditions can be
mad (o yield well for from twenty
five lo 50 years. Cutting is the
tonic for (he plant. If sickly, cut
it. If beginning to bloom, cut it.
Upon tho cutting depends tlmvlgor
of the sjlhe((iciit growth. A stand
