School Opens Monday.

The fall term of the Schleswig schools opens Monday, September 5, with the same teachers in charge as were in charge last year. Professor Olry will be in charge of the upper room, Miss Anna Flynn in chare of the Grammar room, Miss Mary Burch in charge of the Intermediate room, and Miss Anna Schnebelen in charge of the Primary. These teachers gave good satisfaction last year, and will this year keep the high standard of tour schools.

Let us impress upon the parents the importance of having the children start in the first day of the term and attend every day. Nothing will make a child loose [SIC] interest in school work quicker than irregular attendance. When a pupil misses part of the term he becomes behind in his studies and then has to spend much extra time studying in order to catch up, or else go back to the next lower grade.

Let them attend every day so that they may get a good education, for that is what counts I this day and age. Give your children an education and you give them something that neither drought, frost nor hard times can effect [SIC].

A Freak of Nature

Henry Jensen brought into the Leader office Monday a freak ear of corn. The butt of the ear is the same as an ordinary ear, only large. Towards the end it grows larger and finally branches out into eight ends. It is something that is not seen every day. It may be seen hanging in the Leader office window.

Dray Line Changes

On Wednesday a deal was closed whereby Henry Rickert sold his dray line, teams, wagons and business, to the Willert Bros., John and Ed. The new firm took charge at once. Henry has had the dray line for several years and has always given his patrons the best of satisfaction. John Willert is well known here, having been section foreman for nearly a year. We wish the new firm the best of success.
