A part of the load hit the shoulder of Mr. Redding and a number of shot caused a slight wound on Mr. Beck- man's foot. The two men at (■nee drove to Pierz where the wounds were dressed by Dr. Seguin.

Henry Mallette and sou Lester came up to the lako to-day. They intend to hunt here all fall. In accordance with a statement which I made last spring at tho closing exercises of our school, I will endeavor to lay before the patrons of the village school an approximate report of the condition of the same. During the past year the teachers in several of the roor s. especially the first and third, were unable to do justice to their classes for the reason that the: rooms wsre shamefully overcrowded. There were over 70 pupils in the fir6t room and over GO in the third. It is impossible for a teacher to give individual care to pupils when there are 60 many in the care of one teacher. It is in these very rooms, the lower grades, where the children need much individual care. If this crowded condition existed in the higher grades there would be less reason for complaint, in fact there would be reason to rejoice. This year through the addition of one more teacher, the pressure will be relieved in the first room but the same evil still exists in the third room, and will continue to exist until one teacher is added to the force. The pupils in the third and fourth grades are entitled to the same chances for an edu. cation as the pupils in other grades. I do not wonder that pupils enter grade after grade in the condition in which thev do enter. The fault is plainly not the The idea, that so long as you have a good primary teacher and a good teacher in the upper grades yonr school is sure to succeed, is very general but also very incorrect. A good start and a good finish is a very good thing, but how much better it would be to have it all good. The teacher of the iutermedi- her. Mrs. H. Wuellner of ate grades needs to bo just as active and Agram, Henry Zimmerman (if j wide-awake as the teacher of an other Swan River, Mrs. Frnest grade, and needs as favorable conditions us do other teachers. It is hoped that although we failed to get the necessary room this year we will get it next year. If the necesary room had been supplied and an additional teacher to the present force, a ninth grado would have been possible this year It has been and still is my ambition to give your pupils an education at homo. This district can well etford to conduct both a ninth and a tenth grade. Nothing is more foolish and r diculous than sending your children away from home, at an age when they most need parents' care. It costs on an average $200 to a year to send your children to school elsewhere. How many pupils would you need in a ninth grade to make it pay ? What you are paying out for having three or four children educated elsewhere would pay for tho extra teacher. In cases where you wish to have your children take a commercial course, sending them awa> can not be avoided, as our school is not yet a business college, but all works preparing them for a 1. education could be done here at homo as good and much cheaper than elsewhere. So far the prospects we good for a successful year. With one additional teacher to last year's force the school should be rauch better than it was. Every patron should help to make our I stand second to none of its class in the county. Send your pupil's from beginning to finish and send them regularly. Pupil's can not be promoted to the next higher grade if they enter late unless in cases where a pupil was exceptionally strong in his or her grade. Do not wait until the law compels you to send vour children. PHILIP GOERGER. German Bank of State Pierz We Have Money to Loan On Improved Farms. Cheapest Rates.
