The school attendance this summer has been splendid and the interest is good. We wish to call attention to the school on Blackfork where Mr. Bailus Rowland is teaching: they voted the twelve mill tax for school purposes and then hired the teacher for nine months. School began on Blackfork the first Monday in July and will continue for nine (9) months without a vacation. It can be done! E.B. Whisenhunt, B.A. Bowen and B.A. Farmer are the directors. As a rule, the schools mentioned in the above list have clean and well kept school houses. Of course, this rule like all rules, has some exceptions—a few of the school houses were dirty and the water supply inadequate.

Scott County Ranks 65th Educationally.
G.C. Ellis,
County Superintendent.
