Representative Smith of Gibson county proposes ot have the legislature enact a law that will keep neighbors chickens out of gardens and fields. By this law he proposes to legalize the killing of any chicken found in field or garden not of the onwer of the cbieken. There ia nothing any more destructive than an old hen. She can riddle a garden in about four minutes. Why people will keep things about them in such a manner to annoy their neighbors we never coulc| see but they do. If the legislature enacts Representative Smith’s law we believe it would help some. I -    .    _ Asked to define the years of education we should probably, without giving much thought to the quelition. place the earlier limit at six years, the age when the Child generally enters public school. Further thought will not hear out this assertion. The first Sjx years of a child’s life are all-important to bis education. During these his habits of thought and conduct are established and bis happiness and success in life are either assured or made difficult of attainment. The child trained to selfeontrol and obedience has advanced a long way on his prepara-ton of life.

In a few places over the county reports have been that the wheat is spewing while in most neighborhoods reports are that it is growing and not being seriously damaged by the freeze and thaw. It is to be hoped that the wheat will get through the winter in good condition as Pike county has a large acreage and a good crop will mean much to the county. This is an ideal time of year to drag the roads. Where it has been followed the roads are in splendid condition. Leonard Farmer and Norman Williams have been keeping the road dragged from their homes to Arthur and this road is fine as summer time. Dragging does good for years to come. The more a road is dragged-the better it gets. No better time to drag than now. It lets the water get away and the road pack. Dragging roads is time well spent. _' The ladies of the O. E. S.

Tlusy all praise the Red Cross and the Salvation army. The Y. M. C. A. seems to have made good in the camps at home but miserably failed bn the battle front. We are sorry to bear this as we all put up for them at every caM. County Treasurer Gladish has found more delinquent taxes in Patoka township than in any other corporation in the county.
