    J. E. Greenberry and Miss Ida Ryan are having a very successful school at Otto.


    The order, attractiveness and work of Hog Island school, with Miss Flays Ford, is excellent.


    F. J. Turner is doing some fine school work at Alto Springs.  Some excellent maps made by the pupils were on exhibition.  The work surpasses one with the clearness and thoroughness with which, it is done.


    Miss Mabel Hearne has made decided improvement at Bolona since the first visit.  Order, appearance and work are much better, and everything is moving nicely.


    Miss Ella Moorehead is keeping her work at McCaleb fully up to the standard.  The drills in marking letters were especially good.


    Miss Emma Taylor has closed her term at Live Oak and gone to her new home at Stamford.


    G. C. Woodson has resigned as principal at Travis and the term will be finished by Mesdames Rhoda Davidson and Letha Riggs.


    Measles have so interferred with the attendance at Stranger and Union that the teachers were compelled to suspend for a week or two.



    The papers to take the census are now in the county superintendent's office.  Please call or send for them.
