THURSDAY, MAIK'H II, 190!.
ANNUAL DIRECTORS' ASSOCIA
Supt. V. W. Evaus has issued
the following circular:
The twenty-eighth meeting of the
School Directors of Columbia
County will be bekl iu the Normal
Auditorium, Saturday, March 20th.
This is the regular annual meeting
required by the Act of 1905, which
provides that a'l directors who
attend shall receive as compensa
tion, two dollars and mileage.
Each director is cordially invited
to bring his wife to this conven
tion, and all the teachers are wel
come to attend. The ladies will
find iu our program much that
will interest them.
The forenoon session will begin
promptly at 9 o'clock. Rev. I. M.
Bachman of Locust will conduct
the devotional exercises. Following
the reading of the minutes by Mr.
Wm E. Rinker, the secretary, J.
II. Eiseuhauer will deliver the
president's address. Dr. D. J.
Waller will speak to the directors,
if he is able to t2 present. R. E
Kester will read a paper on "How
a Director May Make Schools
More Efficient." A. W. Eves will
give a report oi Dr. Schaeffer's
address at Harrisburg last month.
Mr. J. E. Rees Killgore, Supt. of
Sullivan, will address the directors
on "DiihculUes of the Director's
Work." The last period in the
morning will oe occupied by Mr.
James M. Coughlin, Supt. of the
Wilkes-Barre Public Schools. His
subject will be "The Proposed
School Code." Mr. Coughlin is a
member of the commission appoint
ed by the Governor to prepare this
code, and will give the directors a
thorough explanation of it. No
doubt he will answer any questions
in reference to it which may be
asked. Prot. Coughlin is so well
known to many of us that his
presence will be greatly apprecia
ted. As soon after 12 o'clock as pos
sible we shall assemble iu the Nor
mal Dining Room for our annual
banquet. Directors will secure
tickets from the Treasurer at 25
cents each. After all the directors
and their wives are supplied, as
many places as remain will be sold
After the dinner (before we leave
the dining room) there will be sev
eral short talks of a humorous
character, calculated to aid diges
tion and amuse us during the noon
spell. Speakers will say whatever
they choose on the quotation given
them, but they are warned not to
jie too "serious" or too "long
winded" in their remarks. Prof.
0. E. Wilbur will again be at the
switchboard ready to "push the
utton" as occasion requires. He
will draw his inspiration from the
..'ollowing appropriate lines:
"Humor's son! made up of wis
lom and of fun; Medley of all
- hat's dark and clear, Of all
hat's foolish, all that's dear."
After the ball is set in
notion the following order will be
bserved: 1. Geo. A. Laub,
"Blessed Hour of our Dinners."
'. O. J. Hess, "The Farmer
eedsThem All." 3. Mrs. G. L.
.oily, ;The Hand that Rocks the
Iradle Rules the World." 4. E.
1. Beishline, "As the Twig is
knt, the Tree is Inclined." 5. E.
i. Beare, "And Still the Wonder
Jrew, that One Small Head Could
2arry all he Knew." 6. Boyd
frescott, "Where Ignorance is
Hiss 'Tis Folly to be Wise." 7.
i C. Smith, "Business is Busi
ness." 8. T. Harvey Doan,
"There's Many a Slip, Twixt the
up and the Lip." Besides these
here are many others who will be
. .ailed upon if time will permit.
As soon after 2 o'clock as possi
le we shall convene in the Audi
orium to continue the regular pro
jam. T. C. Brown will be the
, ,rst speaker; his subject ia Closer
.upervision. lra A. Roberts will

cord. It is gratifying to note that
the Pure Food Commission is tak
ing the matter in hand. The sign
"Fresh Country Eggs" is so often
displayed in the village, town and
city grocery stores, aud naturally,
it 'appeals to the unsuspecting buy
er. Ordinarily that would be a
guarantee of freshness, but unfor

is dishonest, or that the grocery-
man is practicing fraud ; but rather
that the average farmer is very
! careless in the matter of the eggs
! he gathers about the farm. Hens
j that are allowed their liberty roam
all over the farm and often sneak
away to some secluded spot to de
posit tneir eggs.
BEWARE OF THE HIDDEN NKST
They like to be private when
laying time comes, and every now
and then the farmer happens across
these nests and generally finds them
well filled. Should a dozen eggs
be found in one of the nests it is
not probable that twelve hens laid
tnose eggs that day. It is more
likely, however, that it is the nest
of an individual hen which has tak
en 24 days to yield that dozen.
Every time the hen laid a new egg
she imparted heat to those already
laid, and the germ of life started.
The farmer gathers up the lot, aud
they are placed in the basket ready
to be taken to town on the next
convenient trip. Is it a wonder

IMPROVED METHODS MUST BE A-
The farmer must keeD his ooul-
try under the same conditions the
poultryman does his, if he wishes
to profit by the work and build up
a reputation for reliable coods. In
stead of the fowls having unlimited
range, they should be confined to
generous-sized runs 100 feet in
length and as broad as the width
of the house and these pens must
not be overcrowded. The farmer
should build houses that will en
able him to readily ventilate (like,
for instance, the scratchinc shed
house) and the manure should be

Brick Roads Wanted.
State Highway Petition Shows a Preference

A preference for brick pavements
m country districts instead of ma
cadam roads is being shown in peti
tions to the State highway depart
ment. Many requests have been
made lor estimates on such con
struction. The tests of roads and
brick pavements have shown that
in rural districts, where the roads
are well drained, that the brick
