At Baker school we find J. P. Samuels as an instructor of sufficient ability. At Applegate Miss Mae Drury is doing leading act in the educational line. At Gladstone is Prof. Fred McDowell, doing good work for the community.

At Post Oak Miss Ina Vaughn is succeeding in impressing both parent and pupils as to her ability to overcome the hardest of educational problems.
At Going springs Miss Addie Maynard is to be found drilling the young in the way which they should go and at Weston we behold Miss Bertha Rankin doing a work that will stand as did "the house built on the rock."The Teachers Association at Seminary Springs was a grand success, while the Field-Day at Post Oak was something that is not beaten every week, but others should write these meetings up and not leave it to visitors to do that work.
The boxes were sold by J. B. Hughes, who proved himself to be an excellent auctioneer. The result of this sale was $13.40, but to the surprise of all, the sale was not to end here, for the energetic little teacher had determined to spring a surprise upon the audience. This she did, by announcing that there was an enormous, fine cake to go to the most beautiful girl. To determine who this was, was indeed quite a task. The people were to cast votes which would cost them who voted one cent a vote.
"Old Kentucky" has long been noted for beautiful women, but for once lost her reputation and the prize went to Miss Scott, for Cave-In-Rock, Illinois. The total sum of the profits, $59.05 all go for the benefit of the school at Weston.
