Returning to her seal she began  )he long struggle to keep hack her  grief. .She sant; to the baby, talked  to it in "baby talk" that mothers  love so well, and pretended to laugh  at it as she held it, every now and  again sinking through her tears at  her husband, who sat beside her and  watched with dry eyes her efforts to  keop back . the* pent-up grief which  was nearly breaking her heart.

In  other  schools,  he-said,   a banner  was. kept,  and  was .hung in the room having the  best  average  attendance.    It  was allowed  to remain in  the room for    a  month,  mid  should   another   division  have the 'best attendance at  the end  of that time,  the banner was* transferred  to that room.

As  previously announced  in     The  Ledger,  many improvements are being made in the building (,itself. The  trustees, as a result ^of persistent applications  to   tihe  government, .both  through  the medium of'the memlber,  Parker Williams, and by sending-   a  delegation   to  interview  the  government officials,  obitained a grant      of  $2,uC0 for improvement work.     This  money is being expended in cementing ,  the     basement   and, iii installing a  heating apparatus.   Donald Nicholson  has the contract for the former and  has   already  commenced   work.

John Mc-Clelleii of Mount Airy, Md.,  Is not only a fine blacksmith, but he  has shown himself to be an expert  wood carver. "With the long quiet  eveniugs before him ho conceived the  Idea of whittling a seven foot black  walnut log with a penknife. Foui  years he spent at the amusement, often getting up at 4 o'clock in the morning to take his sharp knife and whittle  et the log. He put a little time at  meals and in the evening. llecently he  wont to Hagorstown and brought the  result along in a glass case, and it is  now on exhibition there. It is the running gear of a farm wagon complete  In every detail, together with a chain  and other lixings. It is perfect iu every way, not a pin missing, not a part  Wanting and all in one piece, nothing  added or pieced on in auy way. It Is  a wonderful bit of patience and skill.  Mr. McClellen used up over $25 worth  of penknives at it and once bought a  five dollar one with tempered blades  and found it snapped up as easily as  tho others.���������Blacksmith and Wheelwright.
