He has the Longwood school again for the second year and at a good increase in salary which speaks well not only for Joe, but the officers of the district.

Have you been to the Greenwood cemetery lately? And have you noted the improvement that is being steadily made in this city of the dead? The ever blooming roses, the cannas and various other flowers which were planted last spring have done splendidly and have borne blossoms. But all these do not compare for simple, rugged beauty with the appearance made by the evenly mowed grass and well cared for shrubbery and trees. Both taken together make a most restful and pleasing appearance, giving an added halo to the sacred city of the dead. There is only one thing that detracts from the beauty of the whole and that is the tall grass which grows on a very few - not to exceed a half dozen, we should judge - lots which for some reason the owners or those most at interest do not take the pains to care for themselves or contribute the small mite required by the cemetery association for the care of the lots. We wish every such owner or friend of those resting in such lots would take the trouble to visit the cemetery one of these days and just take notice of what is doing.

Vote for Charley Cornelius for County Treasurer next Tuesday.

On September 4th the Eau Claire Business College will open. Rooms free board $2.50 a week.
