than 100 men engaged in school teach

work during the last year to enter other
lines of employment and the number of
women teacbets in the state has in

biennial report of Stale Superinten

to the governor and the legislature.

Antigo, Wis., stating that the latter
was compelled to suffer the ainputatioii
of a limb on account of diabetic

ious and owing to advanced agp, much
apprehension is felt as to the result.
Beginning last Saturday, three crews
of chair car porters were stationed in
this city to work between this point and
Billings. The others will run to St.

Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Iverson who
have been gone for six weeks to the
world's fair and in various sections of

Sunday morning. They went out to

Tuesday. They speak highly of their

Iverson while in Iowa inspected large
stock feeding farms and studied the
methods followed by their owners.
They made this office a pleasant call.
Miss Bessie Smith of Alliance and
her sister, Mrs. Helen Spearman, had
quite an exciting time about 7 miles
uoithwest of town last Monday. On
their way to Crawford in order that
Miss Bessi'i might take the train for
home after a short visit, the horse
they were driving became frightened
and ran away, but the young ladies
managed to stop him before be did any
damage beyond breaking one of the
shafts. This they tied up and man
aged to get to town, whott the Tribune
family enjoyed a rare treat of vocal
and instrumental music for a couple of
hours by the talented musical sisters.

That Restraining Order.
As mentioned in Tin Hf.kli a
short time since, that the railroads of
Nebraska were in colleague in an at
tempt to evade a large portion of the
assessed taxes against their property
has proven true, and thoy have ap
pealed to the federal court for protec
tion. Last Wednesday, Cottntv Trcas
cr Bieiinan received official notification
restraining him from iu any manner
attempting to collect the taxes against
the Chicago, Burlington & Qttincy
Railway Co. Also restraining him
from notifying any agent or officer of
said company in Box Butte county that
said taxes arc delinquent. This is the
decision of Judge M linger of the Cir
cuit court of the United States. And
Mr. Brcnuau is, by the United States
marshal, ordered to obey and govern
As this is the lime of the year when
the county treasurer is diiected by law
to send out notices ot delinquent ta.es,
it will be well to consider the steps
taken by the railroads to evade this
obligation in a like manner. Why not
receive a restraining order from Gov.
Mickey for each individual iu Box
Butte county from being compelled to
pay tho great increase in taxes ? If it
is good for the goose, what's the mat
ter with the same being beneficial to
the gander ? Is a corporation nny
111010 eligible to exemption from taxes
than an individual ? It would seem
not. Those who were content to an
iuctease of their taxes, that they might
have the satisfaction of seeing the rail
way corporations pay a higher rate,
can now reflect as to how badlv they
have been duped.
The marriage of V. R. Kent, well

To Amend the Homestead Law.
Congressman Kiukaid introduced a
bill to amend the homestead laws of
Nebraska on Monday. The text of
his measure is as follows:
"Be it enacted that persons who,
prior to the first day of November,
1904, made entry under the act entitled
'An act to amend the homestead laws
as to certain unappropriated and unre
served lands in Nebraska, approved
April 23, 1904,' shall not be required
to establish or maintain residence on
the lands so entered by them prior to
the first day of May, 1905."
Another bill will be introduced in the
near future providing for other amend
ments one of which will be that a set
tler can make final proof on a home
stead after a residence of fourteen
months under the same conditions as
the old law.

Since Uncle" Zeke returned from Illi
nois he is looking so well that many of
his most intimate friends fail to recog

than his son Ed who is quite a "ladies'
man" which is sufficient reason for
"Uncle" Zeke to feel considerably
puffed up. Win. Mabin left this coun

that time in Illinois concluded that Box
Butte afforded better opportunities.
Like scores of others, he came back to
A telegram was received last Satur
day evening by Miss B. E. Mangan
stating that her brother had met with a
sudden death that morning near Sut
ton, this state. He was engaged in
bridge work at the time. When a train
came along, and before the unfortunate
man had time to escape it was upon
him, and in his effort to save himself,
fell headfirst to the ground, a distance
below. Death resulted instantly. Miss
Mangan went at once to Sutton to at
tend the funeral. This was hor only
brothor, as we are informed and the
sudden and tragic separation of brother
and sister is indeed pathetic.

Good homes are wanted' for orphan
and destitute children. Many of these
children arc more unfortunate than
others iu their ancestry and need
thotoughlv good homes in order that
the influences about them may awaken
their better nature, and atouse their
ambition on right line". A home where
eating, drinkk.g, clothing, business and
pleasure consume all the time and
powers of the family will not do for
these, because there is a sad lack of
that which is ever essential to a good
home. There must be a mother's
heait and band, and a father's consid
eration for child nature needs. Good
homes are wanted for such .children by
