"TjR. Ward, Pastor of the
IH Presbvterian Church at
Halfway in last weeks Pine
Valley Herald, Rives voice to an
almost universal feeling of unsat
ipfaction at the inability of the
comtry school to cope with pres
ent day economic conditions as
applied to. the every day task of
securing- the wherewithall for an
honest living.
; We perfectly .agree with Dr.
Ward in his idea of centralizing
schools, while both in Richland
and New Bridge, we of Eagle are
blessed with modern schools, we
feel, that much more could be
done if by co-operation, these
two schools could be-brought, to
cover the entireallex,.byiasys

f- afr-nit by transporting the child

! Valley also has a good
Hi: School, though through lack
of proper co-operation it still re
ma'" t unhoused, occupying at
prts. nt, the upper story of the
Grammar school. High- School,
with its broadened scope of edur
cation, needs more facilities fo
the same. At the present .time
one may .study practically .all, the
requisite studies, for; lenterine
business, professional life, but for
the greatest businessi of all, that
of the farmer, there is not a sem
blance of a helpful t study. This
is1 not so for several -reasons.
First: There is not ther, proper
'facilities for teaching scientific
farming. Second: The average
hifeh school professor with his
high standard of academic train
ing is not a fitting instructor in
ffbns line of endeavor, he is not a
practical farmer; and you might
& well expect -one who is incapa-
f"le of reading orwriting, to teach
ae classics, as one who 13 not a
ractical farmer, to instruct farm
boys in a study in- which, by dinfc
of hard labor, they have acquired

When Your Children
HEALTHY children are hard on srjoes. But

ons we sincere y hope your shoe
doctor's bills.
But we started to tell you about thea.; now "Toss and Ted''
School Shoes. These shoes for boys an cl girls are something
now in the history of shoemaking.
Heretofore children's shoes have been mostly heavy, clum
sy affairs. They were made to ,ro3i Jt wear.', Thd lighter
weight "dress" shoes woro out in ,a hu'rry-rcouUlnU st,'nd
the w.ear to which they would be subjected by a good healthy
young American. .
Folks, never thought of the ill-comfort sometimes suffer
ingthey caused th-i young folks by cramping their feet in
ill-fitting, clumsy shoes. And few of us knew until lately
that nearly all the foot troubles in later years wore due to
just such shoes worn in youth.
Put Their Feet in Comfortable
"Tessand led,r Shoes' ,
These new shoes are the result of years of experiments.
They are not Ciimsy they are light, pretty, oven dainty,
yet they vea- longer than the out-of-date clumsy things.
Thats first of al- because they are made of honest atorjals,
and because the men who make them know how to so equal
ly devide the strain that each pair will give the greatest pos
sible amount of service. ,
We tell you they are up-to-datei scientific school shoes.
There are cheaper shoes, we know, but jf you.'ll buy "Tess
and Ted" School Shoes for all your children - and do ,it
for a whole year we know you'll decrease. your, sjiop
bul. Let us prove it to you. Prices range according to
siz from
$2.00 to $3.50

(A broad campaign of publicity on

tbls state today to bring the probksmB
of the farmers to the forefront. Tbo
city problems are blazonod upon tie

fanners will reveal many Inherent de
eots in our economic system that can

organized In every rural community

They aro local forces working for
the bent interests of their respective
communities. Their work is to build
and their object is to serve. Thoy
prosper only through the development
and prosperity of the community.
Every farmer in this state should
subscribe for tho local paper, as well
as form periodicals and such other
publications as ho may find profitable,
but he should, by all means, subscribe
for his local paper, and no home
should be without it. Tho local paper
