State Norma! Schools of Nebraska
Paper read before U e Alliance Woman's
Club by Mrs. I). W. Hayes
(Continued from last week.)
The year 1SS2 was the most prosperous in
the school's history. Social life was not
neglected. As a forerunner of the annual
banquet, now a fixture in the school. Dr.
Curry gave the graduating class and stud
ents a reception in his parlors previous
to commencement. Ho encouraged health
ful sports and greatly enjoyed seeing the
students have a good time. He was not
only a man of high ideals, despising every
thing low in word, thought, or act, but was
a devoted Christian. His talks to students
in tho Tuesday evening prayer meeting
wcro replete with deep religious
thought. No doubt his influence has
donojnuchto mould the character of
many a young man and woman. He
was beloved by all The board granted
his every wish In behalf of the school,
but feeling that he had done nil in his
power to widen the Influence of the
school, he resigned his place- to some
other, who he thought might be able to
give the school a power to mould the
educational life of the state to a much
larger extent.
Tho board tried to induco the first
president, J. V. McKenzle, to again
take tho responsibility of the school
upon his shoulders, but being unable to
do so, elected Supt. George L. Farnam
of Council UlurTs, Iowa, to become Dr.
Curry's successor. During his first
year 217 young women aud l'J2 young
men were enrolled. Tho second year a
now wing was added to the building,
known us Chapel wing. Prof. Far nam
was known in educational circles as
tho author of tho "Sentence Method of
Teaching Reading " Ho assisted in the
construction of n large telescope, "thus
greatly increasing tho interest in tho
study of astronomy. Ho also purchas
ed instruments for the study ofsur
vcying, and gavo much practical in
struction on the subject.
President Farnam stayed at his post
of duty ten years, and did more ,for
his students than any man before him.
When he gavo up his work he was
loved by all, and 110110 could say they
were not better for having known him.
Miss Eliza Morgan, no relatlvo of
Hen. Morgan win preceptress at Peru
for twenty-five- years, beginning her
duties In 1872. She did much in shap
ing the most refined ideals of the
school. In the mutter of dress and
care of tho head, face and hands, she
was especially watchful aud Insistent.
Personally, Miss Morgan was a perfect
model, She taught more effectually
by her appearance and thoroughness
than by precept. Her Impress was left
indelibly on all young women who at
tended Peru Statu Normal. Tlioy still
remember her as a dear friend, it wise
counselor, and a competent aud
thorough Instructor,
The last three presidents, with the
exception of Mr. Crabtree were Drs.
Norton, Iteattio, and Clark.
Under Dr. Norton came the first
lecture courso. Under Dr. lieattie, a
a new and commodious dormitory was
built, the old one having burned.
Dr. Clark's administration saw the
athletic field dedicated which marked
n step in tho broader life of the school,
anil made it possible for the students to
como in contact with the other schools.
A fine green house was built, which
offered u splendid opportunity for the
study of plant life during all seasons
of tho year.
After pulling the schopl through the
hard financial struggles which bwept
tho state in 1904, Dr. Clark resigned.
Mr. J. W. Crabtree was called from
his position us state high bcliool in
spector to the presidency of Peru Nor
malln 1001." Uewusa former graduate
of Peru and had become one of the
leading educators of the state. His in
fluence as a leader may be estimated
by the following statistics-
Enrollment for 1902-3... , 720 1

There is no. risk taken when you buy a CHICKERING SON (Boston), IVERS & POND, PACKARD, KURTZMANN, STERLING, KOHLER
& CAMPBELL, HARVARD, HUNTINGTON, besides a number of less expensive Pianos that may be seen on our floors and are regarded as leaders
in their respective grades. YEARS FROM NOW you woul 1 regard the price of the Piano you purchased now as small if then you FOUND that' vou
had in your home a Piano that had proven satisfactory. Time u.uite will demonstrate the musical value of a nood Piano and the honor of the house that sells
Our aim has always been to sell the class of Pianos that would secure for us the confidence and esteem of the public. No Piano concern can produce a better asset
than a satisfied community of buyers, and we are in Alliance to stay. Call and see us in our new quarters, Brennan's old drug store, opposite postoffice

During four years of his administra
tion the school bus grown from n local
normal to a medium-sized university.
To keep pace with tho growth In at
tendance, rapid material progress was
necessary. The frame library, built in
1539. was doubled in size and brick
veneered for use as a science labora
tory. The library, which then com
prised fl,540 volumes, now contains 20,
000, aud is housed in a splendid library
The gradunto of less than a decade
ago, on returning, now sees in place of
the old 84,000 heating plant, a fine,
new 25,000 plant. He also fluds
chapel held, not as a few years ago, in
a wing of the main building but in a
new chapel building, which also pro
vides a gymnasium.
On tho campus may now be seen the
historic Normal Hall, the library, Mt.
Vernon Hall, the chapel, the science
Hall, a 150,000 administration building
which will bo completed about January
1, 1911, the dormitory, observatory,
stand plpo, green house, and tbo old
and new heating plants.
The beauty of the campus at Peril in
spired one of tho students, S. It. Bar
ton, now state auditor, to write the
following poem:
If I could paint a picture,
And paint it with colors true,
I would spend my time in work sub
lime, Painting old Peru
I would paint those hills and valleys.
Those fields with their golden
The little squirrel with his swish and
Those beautiful uutumu leaves.
Those kings of tho stately forest,
Monarchs of nges past,
Those rugged hills, those rocks and
God grant they may always fast.
We mix our earthly colors
And call our paintings good,
Hut tlieDod above, with a heart of love,
Makes colors that no man could.
Ho has taken the rarest colors,
The gems of heavenly blue,
And painted a picture in nature,
God bless it, dear phi Peru.
For some time there has been a feel
ing through Nebraska that another
Normal was needed for the training of
our teachers. This need was especially
felt in the central and western part of
tho state, A bill passed the legislature
in March, 1903, which appropriated
$50,000 for the establishment of a Nor
mal school west of the ninety-eighth
meridian. Several towns were appli
cants for the new school, Allluuce being
utnoug them. However, Kearney se
cured the prize, and the Normal was
located on a -tract of about twenty-five
acres in the western part of the city.
In 1005, the legislature appropriated
580,200 for the full equipment and
opening of the school. The school
opened in June, 1905, In the Kearney
High school building. The regular
year's work began In September in the
Normal building, which, was not com-4
pleted. Temporary stairways
were put in, muslin was stretched
across the windows to keep out tho
draught, and two large traction engines
were attached to the steam pipes to
supply heat for the building. In this
way the building was kcrt comfortable
until the heating plant wus completed
in December.
The ICearnev Normal 1ms boon ri.
,..,., . , .,.,... , ., . I
uiuriiuuiu m uuii, it uu mill me most,
rapid growth of any new .school in the
United States. It Is tho plan of tho
board of education to establish in due
time as complete a plant at Kearney us
can bo found any where In the country.
To this end they have already plunned
the campus relutlvu to the location of
all future buildings. At present only
one building is in use, the main part of
wliloh cost $50,000. One wing bus been
added and the second oue Is now being
i s .'j
wv' '
constructed. Later tho third will be
built on at the rear. Aalu from the
main building the plans call for four
other buildings. There Is also a
beautiful dormitory for girls.
The board of education believes that
a school's ground should be the
plcasantest place In acoramunlty, next
to the home. They noted accordingly
and secured a landscape artist, who
laid out all the grounds, planning all
drives, walks, flower-beds and trees.
When the parking is completed tho
grounds will contain an arboretum, in
which may be found every forest tree
that grows well in that locality. A
fine athletic field is also provided.
Kearney has had but one president,
Dr. A C. Thomas. He is a strong man
' for the place, and has secured the best
men available for members 01 liis
fuctilty, which numbers about thirty.
In three years the school turned out
1 383 graduates. This gives some idea of
, tho great work of the State Normal of
. the middle west.
Who can measure the vast influence
and power of tho stato normals of Ne
braska over our young men and women
of today! Mrts. D. W. Hayks.
