IIIh opposition wtut di tCRimled. JIu tried to gut on the record n protoul Knint the nctioii of the majority, hut tlmt, too, vii overruled. 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 May .-H tlmt the school had bteu 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. Hut the toocliur, Arle C. Ilainp ton, recognized the action Of 'the majority of thu board on authoriz ing him to quit and he loft town Sunday noon for IiIk home in Polk county, lie went by private con veyance to The Dalles.

It U staid that payment for the thrte week will be resisted in tho courts by the minor ity interest on the lxwrd if it shall 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 ojHm in September. 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 1 : 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 College. "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.
