Our excellent neighbor, th** Enterprise, with unnecessary acerbity in the discussion cif such a proper subject of public inquiry, defends County Superintendent Haugen in his negligence in the matter of visiting schools, and says that to visit seventeen in twenty days is doing well. At that rate, there being 119 school districts, and schools being in session only part of the year, how many schools and how often would he visit them in a year? A superintendent is expected to visit every term in each district at least once. and this heretofore has been done except in rare cases of blizzards or impassible roads. At the rate Mr. Haugen hasbeen visiting them he will fail to make half the visits required. lint Mr. Haugen i should not lye condemned as yet for this. He may do better iii the : future and should br* given a fair op- i port unity in this respect to show the J mettle that is in him. It is his failure I to participate in the work of the teach- j irs association that the Bt a NOA RD Chiefly criticizes. The law does not require him to do so, it is true; but in all | other counties superintendents are the organizers, the promoters, the leaders, and tile teachers at the associations. Ile thus mel ts all the teachers, and has the best of all opportunities to become acquainted with them, to instruct, to criticize, correct, and improve them and j their work if he is capable of doing it. j And in the case of Mr. Haugen he him-1 sHi needs the benefits to be obtained at the meetings. It is a lamentable j fact that there are but few of all the teachers in the county that need tile advantages of the association more than does he. It is almost pitiful that I his failings should be shown ti* the people of the county, but the issue of his competency having been so rai>ed, we deem it a duty to give some evidence which is unimpeachable and which is of a character that speaks for itself. In the matter of the change in a school district, Mr. Haugen recently filed a document with the county auditor, in his own handwriting, of which the following is an exact copy; Albert Lea Minn. Feb. * 1889. I iii,a it im possible to approve or your petition In the form it now iv precented, av It Lea vs dlst. No to to small for avell supporting district But lf you can make a change aud take In a little more of 4g and si it shoi’ld mkt my approval V ours O. K. Ha co KH. In this very brief document, there are altogether in punctuation, grammar, construction and spelling, thirteen errors. This is all. The document is part of the public records, and any person has a right to inspect it. Why They Failed. I John Wannamaker, the great 1‘liila-I deiphia merchant, who made his start | and has built up his immense business by advertising, says: “I spend $5,000 j a week iii advertising, and pay a skill-I ful man a former newspaper editor, arid a good one 91,dor) a month to do J it for me. I make money by it. Ad* I venialng is Hic leverage with which I this store has been raised up, I do not see how any large aud successful re* 1 tall business can bedene without liberal advertising. Continuous advertising, like continuous work, is the most effective." And yet there are some business men who think it only necessary to advertise during the holidays, or during “good times;” others seem to think to advertise is simply a favor to the local paper, and yet other* refuse to advertise altogether, or but very little. Two of the hest business locations in Albert Lea, stores in the center of trade, have each bren occupied by half a dozen firms during the past few years, and each firm either failed and went into bankruptcy, or retired from business from lack of patronage. They were stingy in the use of Hie advertising columns of the local papers; they attempted to do business without letting the public know of it. Each of the firms carried good stocks and might have succeeded beyond a doubt, if they had been enterprising and f reely ach er- I tised. There is not the least possible doubt about this, and yet the lessons of these failures will not be heeded bv those that ought to heed them most.

Less than Simi was contributed in Rice county: not to exceed 935 have been contributed in Waseca county, outside of the city, while in Freeborn county, Trenton gave Uo. Freeborn village gave tee, while Alden gave SJW). The statement that they have received thousands of dollars and can afford to go to Canada is a malicious falsehood. As for the poor farmers very few have given anything, nearly all the money having been paid by the villages. He says the false stories have been started by Albert Lea and Wells parties, because the proposed road will run between the two places.— Waseca Herald. White seems to know about this business, and undoubtedly does, but lying will not help it. People in the west part of this county know that more money was subscribed there than all still holds good, and it is plainly marked on every article.

Raiding. A recent issue of Farm, .Stock and Home contained the following words from an Illinois farmer of many years experience in growing Max. “I have been raising flax for the seed for the last 25 years, and taking it on an aver-j age it lias been just as remunerative a crop as any of tho cereals, slim crops j do not occur any oftener than with oats I or wheat, and as far as exhausting th** J soil, I’ve not found it any more exhaustive than wheat, and’not nearly so bard on the soil as oats. In fact, I j think that oats get away with the soil the fastest of small grain. It is a voracious feeder, and soon exhausts the elements necessary to the growth of other cereals; w hereas llax improves the soil element for th** production of wheat or clover. On cold, clammy soil I have never found anything better to enliven and mellow it up titan a flax crop.

The only remarkably thing about the affair is, that the farmers and others who have been swindled have so long delayed proceedings to arrest and procecute the rogues. _    * * + ♦- - ■ * .Natural Has at Stillwater. Stillwater Democrat, There can no longer be any question about the existence of natural gas at Stillwater, or that the company now operating in search of the article have discovered it. Any skeptic can be convinced by an ocular demonstration who takes the trouble to visit the derrick house. While awaiting the arrival of the new’ cable with which to continue the operation of drilling, the well has been temporarily plugged and a small pipe with a common gas burner attached inside. Enough of the fluid soon collects to ignite when a lighted match is applied and will continue burning for several minutes. The quantity of the flow is but slight and if no stronger source of supply is found it will never be of any practical use, but in demonstrates the existence of the article and gives the projectors courage to continue their investigation.
