Will tne school room never grow brighter Will the fun never shine through the gloom? Will the lessons never grow lighter? Will the grass and the flowers never bloo mt It seems I have been at my studies The longest and weariest while. And the teacher will talk on his hobbies. With never the hint of a smile. If only the wearisome lessons Could be learned by the side of the brook; If only the nature of fishes Could bo studied with bait and a hook; If only tho habits of blue jays Might be learned by a tramp through the wood; If we might but study the flowers By searching for them where we would, Then all Jour dull tasks would be And our lessons, before such a task, Would be hailed with faces that brightened And be cheerfully studied at last.

Banner School, district No. 40, 0. B. Fleming, teacher. Only two incorrect Reports this month.

Reports have not been received from districts 0, 13, 34, 45, and GO. Nos. 80, 80 and 95 are the only schools that had no tardiness during the month' Nos. 8, 22, and 42 had but one case each, and Nos. 29, 40, and 92 had but two cases each.

The prlme object, seemed to be the utter annihilation of Watkins, Fleming and Martin, and so far as the two former were concerned it was a decided success. Not so with Martin, however. He was present in the forenoon but, upon hearing there was to be a spelling match in the afternoon, discovered that lie had pressing business in other directions which would not admit of delay, so the Association was compelled to struggle along without him. If you wish to "down" Ira in a spelling match, you must proceed on the principle of. making rabbit pot pie "First catch your rabbit," etc.

The match opened with looks of determination stamped upon each individual countenance, but it was not long until the orthographical scalps of both Fleming and Watkins were dangling DIST. NO. 8. Grace Dunmire Nellie Swart Martha Deringer Willie Shearer Jesse Johnson Loyd Thomas DIST, NO. 17.

Each one appeared to enjoy his or herself hugely.

We were unable to be present, except for a very short time, at the last session of the Association, but we understand that the exercises were quite Interesting and the spelling match especially very entertaining. It settled the championship of the county for a time at least. The result was a surprise to some of the "brag" spellers each of whom was confident of an easy victory. Miss Eva Ashton carries the coveted honors at present but a desperate effort will be made to win them from her either at the institute this summer or after the schools begin next fall.
