Had Your Cultivator Seat Water-Cooled? "Hot enough to fry eggs” is the way the weather is often described when it becomes Just as hot as it can get. ^ When it got that hot out In Foster township one afternoon not long ago, one farmer there mounted the iron seat of his cultivator, on which the sun had been shining all morning. He Jumped. He winced. His lips twisted, but he didn’t say what he thought. Deliberately, and with that slowness of action which denotes a purpose of mind, he dismounted from the tractor. Just as slowly and equally as deliberately, with Just as much purpose of movement and twitching of lips, the farmer moved upon the well near his house. He took a bucket a cool water from the well, carried it to the cultivator, and poured it on the burning iron. "Giddap,” he said to the horses as he climbed up to the one and only original water-cooled cultivator seat. Trolley Lines in New Retrenchment And Consolidation 3 Officials Get Extended Leaves of Absence as Result East Alton Schools To Open Sept. 3 Teaching Staff Complete as Last Two Instructors Sign Where Federal Prisoners Rioted Rush Building Work Plans Made to Allow Attendance at Teachers Institute Drastic retrenchment, made necessary by steady decline In business due to inroads of the automobile and buses, ha* been put into effect by the toast St. Louis Sc Suburban Co., which is associated with the Alton-St. Louis (Interurban) Railway and the Alton (city lines) Railway Co. The latest order abolishes three department* through consolidation with other departments. The consolidation has resulted in extended leaves of absence for three officials of the company who have been heads of their departments for more than ten years. They are. W. C. Myers, superintendent; L. Q. Leake, storekeeper, and F. O. Whiteman. superintendent of service. Lived In Alton W. C. Myers, who has been superintendent and in charge of certain of the interurban operations for 15 years, has lived In Alton. The other two officials affected by the order live in East 8t. Louis. Myers has gone to California where Myers and their son and daughter are visiting relatives. If is understood that upon his return he will become asoctated with another utilities company and there la likelihood of his maintaining his residence in Alton. Business Declines Further retrenchment of the Suburban has followed a continued decline in business, due to the competition of the busses and the practice of former patron* in using their automobiles. Some months ago the number oi interurban trains wa* reduced, with a considerable shortening of the limited car schedule. From year to year retrenchments have been carried out to meet the decline in revenue, until the present consolidation of three operating offices with a view of cutting down the overhead to the minimum. East Alton schools will open Sept. 3. It was decided at the meeting of the East Alton Board of Education last night.

The subcontractor on the bricklaying, he said, had failed to put In an appearance as yet, and this fact had delaved the work somewhat. However! the Haldi Lumber Sc Construction Co., which holds the general building contract on the new school, had agreed to hire other bricklayers to carry on the work and rush It to completion as near after school opened as possible. Only a few bricklayers have been put on the Job by the general contractor so far. but if the subcontractor falls to put in his appearance before Monday, Morrissett said, th* Haldi on ce rn would put on    a full force of men. „ _ . ,    _    .
