Barns to shelter the horses
were built in three districts.
Improvements have been made
in a number of districts, such as
painting, remodeling, cleaning
ate. A well was bored in Dis
trict No. 23. also one in District
No. 51. In three other districts
cisterns were built and filled
with water a few days before
the opening of school.
Boyi and Girls uub Work is
not as strong as I would like to
have it If it were possible to
have a elub leader in each dis
trict after school closes in the
spring, or if we could have a
county club leader during the
vacation period results would be
satisfactory. Boys and girls are
enthusiastic at the beginning of
the school term but with no
county fair and no competent
leaders throughout the county.
there is little incentive. Credit
must be given our county agent
R. W. Morse, and Mr. R. B,
Wilcox for tne enort made in
this work and' for its- successful
We lament tne loss ot our
county nurse. Neither the red

position to finance the work
longer, hence 'we have been
without since November, 1923.

to the teachers free of charge.
Three local institutes were
ubstituted for the annual insti

boards gave their teachers one

The Otis Intelligence lest was
given to every teacher and later
to every pupil attending school.
The Hedrick-Hoppes Test in

eighth grade pupils, and before
school closed all pupils were

The two other institutes were
held one at lone and the other

Copper Carbonate Treatment
By Roger W. Monte, County Agent
Last spring the County Agent
planted a treatment test in the
wheat nursery on the Troy Bo
gard farm north of lone. In this
test Bluestem was sown on the
25th of March, treated with
formaldehyde, blues tone, Blue
stone and lime, and copper
carbonate. Stand counts made
after the wheat was up showed
the following percentages ofj
stand. Aftercounting the plants
in a rod length row the treat
ment giving the greatest number
was listed at 100 per cent and the
counts figured from that basis
was as follows:
Method of per cent
treatment of stand
Bluestone & Lime 97
Copper Carbonate 100
Other tests have shown that
there is a large loss in germin
ation when wheat is treated with
the wet treatments and sown in
fairly dry ground. With copper
carbonate showing as good smut
control as the wet methods the
advantage in better stands es
pecially in a dry seeding time
makes the copper carbonate treat
ment very desirable.
The Morgan Sunday school

day. Rev's. Head and Morti
more of lone were in attendance

This school remained open
