Bills are out announcing a Democra
tic rally at the Court House this evening.
We make this anouncement because our
Democratic contemporary over on Locust
street will say that the meeting is on
Sunday evening and we don't want our
Democratic friends fooled that way.
The attention of contractors is called
.to the advertisements inviting bids to
build the jail and several bridges. There
will be a large amount of public building
done this summer, in spite of commenc
ing late.
Fishing is not so good as it was last
year, experts only being able to make a
catch. Thacker and Whitlock took a crip
up the river Wednesday afternoon and re
turned with one pike only. It was quite
a nice one, however, weighing two pounds
and a quarter.
Remember that Conway & Keith have
the sole agency for the celebrated Maltese
Cross Hose, the same make as has been
adopted by the city water works. This
is the only perfect Hose manufactured.
Merchants should bear in mind that
newspapers are always booming the town,
but that the advertising columns are the
best guide as to whether the town is
booming. The advertisements are what
the stranger measures the town by.
Would it not be well to have Lincoln
county represented at the state fair this
fall? By a little effort we cam send a
collection of grain and vegetables that
jwould compare, favorably, with. . it not
exceed, those raised in other sections of
the state.
It had been the intention of the
Water Works Company to resume the
work of laying mains this week, but
heavy rains at Kearney, where the pipe
gang is at work, delnyed operations and
prevented the arrival of the men. They
are expected here this week, when an ef
fort will be made to get the mains down
by the specified time, July first
T. C Patterson has purchased the
lots at the Corner of Sixth and Spruce
streets, commonly known as the Neary
corner, the purchase price being $4,500.
This puts the property into a shape that'
it can be improved, and we understand it
is Mr. Patterson's intention to erect a
building thereon this season, if possible.
W. S. Cox who killed the gray wolves
that had been destroying cattle and colts
near Maxwell, has been presented with
eleven j-earling heifers by the people and
they are not through yet. In addition to
this he received a bounty of three dollars
for each scalp from the county, the whole
reward being about $150. He hunted
seven days and killed seven wolves.
People who a couple weeks ago com
plained of the cold weather are now
equally pronounced in their denunciation
of the heat. The Tribune weather reg
ulator long ago became convinced that he
couldn't suit everybody and now deals
out such weather as he thinks the good of
the people and the country demands.
a rmmr man residing not over a
thousand miles from North Platte is just

was caused, it is said, by kissing his best

away his time on his best girl's cheek
when her lips are only an inch away de
serves to be sick.

The plan seems to be a very good one.
R D. Thomson of this city was a
bidder for the contract of erecting the

and cents Mr. T. was slightly the highest
bidder, but if the truth could be known
we believe he is actually the lowest, for
to make arrangements and one to solicit
donations were appointed. At a meeting
of the committee Thursday evening, a

The attendance of buyers at the
Evans & Waldo horse sale Saturday af
ternoon was not very large and their de
mands were soon satisfied, when the sale
closed. Those sold brought very good
prices, one 5 year old mare bringing $185.
After the public sale, a number were sold
at private sale at fair prices. Most of the
colts were well-bred grades, readily at
tracting buyers.

The School Investigation.
The investigation, on the charges pub
lished m The Tribuxe last week, into
the conduct of the schools under Mr.
All wine's management, was resumed this
week and completed on Wednesday. Mr.
Hoagland appeared before the board and
made quite a lengthy statement, besides
having previously filed a written state
ment, of the" reasons why he believed
Messrs. AlLwine and Bverlv should not
be re-elected. Mrs. W. 31. Hinman also
made an argument in favor of having
new teachers. Of the members of the
board, 3Ir. Sullivan took a leading part
in sustaining the course of the teachers,
while 3Ir. Hmman conducted the investi
gation. After all parties had been heard,
the board proceeded to the election of
Railroad and Telegraph Assessment.
The assessment of the railroads and

Having been formed into a corporate
bodr, in accordance with the law, for the
purpose of furthering the interests of
education, we wish to announce to the
citv of JN orth IJlatto and vicinity that in
the profundity of our massive intellects
we have conceived the brilliant idea of
founding a training school for the benefit
of our sisters-in-law, nieces, daughters,
and intimate friends who may wish to en
ter the profession of teaching. This
school will be operated on a novel plan,
one which needs explanation, but which
we believe will give complete satisfaction
to those directly interested, and redound
to the credit of the originators. We wish
to place before the people a few of the
many admirable features of this wonder
ful scheme. It is our intention to put
from the court room, and j onr pet theory into practical operation by
something good
the supposition is that
had been said.
In taking the census of sections' 14
and 15 in 10-34 which it was proposed to
incorporate as the village of Wallace,.the
enumerators got consiaeraoi csulcu, ap
parently. One thing that mixed mailers
more or less is the fact that in the village
there are a number of people at worK
who own homesteads quite long distances
outside, consequently are not actual resi
dents of the territory proposed to be in
corporated. By accident they w ere "put
on the list" and helped to swell tne ngures
to the necessary two hundred. But still
there seemed to be a shortage, sma tue
intimation is made that hotel registers
were searched. When a man wants wet
goods he wants 'em bad, and will not al
ow little trifles to stand m his way.
Election of Teachers.
After the Board of Education had heard
the arguments of those desiring a change
of teachers, a motion was auupieu. iu mu
ceed to the election of teachers, the test
of course being on the principal. 3Ir.
Allwine was elected paincipal by a vote
of four to two. For assistant principal
the ballot was evenly divided, there being
nnlv three votes for Mr. Byerly. So the
oloftinn nf an assistant, wnu is uiw usuuutji
in the high school, was deferred.
The estimates and levy for the ensuing
.oar trill nrnhahlv be made at the next
meeting. . ...

in which each will work.

Has Not Left.
A short time ago A. Hibner appeared
before the County Commissioners and
represented that F. 31. Jennings, assessor
fnr Wax UreeK orecmci. naa ieii, ine
country, and was not periorming tne
work of assessor. As Hibner was on
Jennings' bond, and consequently a very
. . .ft ft 5 A 3
interested party, tne ooaru appomteu
Hibner assessor; but by the time Hibner
had got back to the precinct Jennings had
returned and commenced the assessment.
Hibner of course retired gracefully from
that field of duty.
Now Jennings writes us and desires
the report that he had left the country,
contradicted. He says he "never thought
of leaving the country, nor does he ex
pert to leave it. " And then he fires into
us a connundrum, viz, "What is the best
remedy to stop tongues from attending to
other folks' business?" Dear 3Ir. Jen
nings, the experience of ages has demon
strated that the cold and clammy hand of
Death is the only remedy.
The Wallace Saloon Business.
The people of Wallace and vicinity
have had considerable controversy lately
over the question of establishing a salpon
in that village. There is quite a num
ber who want a saloon, , while a much
larger number it appears do not think it
would be for the best interests of the vil
lage and surrounding country to have one
of these institutions, and they protest.
The saloon men argue that it will be bet
ter to have liquor sold openly rather than
surrepticiously. The temperance people
think otherwise. While the very thirsty
and craving may be able to obtain a small
amount of liquor this way, there will not
be that temptation to moderate drinkers,
young men and boys that a saloon holds
out. On the remonstrance were the
names of a large number of women, but
we think there were none on the petition.
After hearing the evidence introduced by
both sides, the County Commissioners re
jected Sullivan's application.

placing the pupils of our training school
in the schools of our city End furnishing
them children upon which to operate.
For six hours a day the ltttle ones will be
subjects in the hands of the members of
this training school. Sletopborically
speaking they will be desected and every
portion will be minutely examined m or
der that our pupils may arrive at a con
clusion in regard to the development ot
the intellect, and learn that the mind of a
little child is more frail, and infinitely
more precious, than the embryo ot tne
most delicate flower that the Creator
caused to bloom, and too valuable for in
experienced hands, with their injurious
experiments to touch. The projectors of
this ingenious plan have formed them
selves into an examining committee, and
all persons wishing to enter the school
must apply to them for a card of admit
tance, and must also provide themselves
with a certificate -setting forth that they
are in some way related to, or a. near
friend of, at least one member of the
committee, or the principal of the insti
tution; but it must be distinctly under
stood that, if upon examination, an appli
cant displays a peculiar faculty to teach,
has the qualification to instruct cognate
with herself, the application will be pre
emptorily rejected, and the candidate re
fused admission within the sacred pre
cincts of this intellectual establishment.
It is necessary further to set forth, if the
managers of this project should
at any time discover that any
student, through inefficient examina
tion, should gain admission, or after be
ing admitted, should exhibit an unusual
propensity to impart instruction, she will
be removed, and her place filled with
another whose ideas are more in keeping
with Ihose of the founders of the estab
lishment. To those who have in the
past, and who will continue in the future,
to furnish their little ones, as subjects
upon which our pupils may conduct ex
periments, our most hearty thanks are
due, and iu return for the kindness
shown, we will use our utmost endeavor,
to visit the school as seldom as possible,
to take no interest in its success, to have
our students display as little energy as
possible, and kill out any foreign vegeta
tion that might spring up, conducive to
the best interests of the schools. We
guarantee to you that your children shall
make no progress, that they shall grow
up stunted in intellect, meagre in knowl
edge, deficient in general information, de
fective in judgment, imperfect in all that
development so desirable to round up and
complete a. grand and noble character.
In concluding this somewhat lengthy ad
vertisement, of this most peculiar institu
tion, we briefly refer to the solid financial
basisr upon which it stands, differing in
every particular from any school of learn
ing ever founded, in that those who are
to be benefitted, and who .will finally de
velop into teachers are paid excellent
salaries for their kindness in consenting to
enter into training in our remarkable es
tablishment. We feel satisfied that the
people recognize the great benefit we
wish to confer upon our friends and we
are proud to know that they will contri
bute largely of their means to build up
and strengthen in our midst one of the
most brilliant schemes ever devised for
our benefit. P. Chimera,

Commencement Exercises.
lho commencement exercises of the graduat
ing class of 1888 from the high school of this city
were held in Lloyd's opera hbose Thursday even
ing. Though they were to begin at half past
seven, on account of the lateness of some of the
members of the Board of Education to pat in an
appearance, it was much later before they com
menced. At 8:90 the graduates, four in nam
ber, Miss Birdie McGaahey, Miss Opal Mc
Gaohey, Miss Jennie Carlson and Miss Annie
Kramph, were conducted to the stage by Profs.
Allwine and Byerly, followed by tho Board of
Education and Revs. Hall and Stump.
After the male quartette had song "Star of the
Evening" in a very pleasing way, Bev. Hall was
called upon to open the exercises with prayer.
Then followed the salatatory by Miss Carlson
whose subject wae "Mi Louise M.' Alcott,"
a sketch of. the life and works of this admirable
woman, displaying depth of thought, delivered
in an interesting manner, and appreciated by the
audience. Following this was an artistically
rendered solo by Miss Benrley, and then came
H. Sullivan, Bpeaking for the Board of Educa
tion, who in his inimitable way delivered what
he termed an hour and thirty minutes' speech,
ending with a "prodigious" compliment to the
graduating class. At this juncture, and much to
the surprise and pleasure of the audience, the
fine orotund voice of Hon. John I. Nesbitt was
heard, who in a few, but well chosen sentences
introduced Major Henderehot who, on coming
forward, told a laughable story of the minister
(not Mr. Martin) who had the devil in his coat-
tail, and he then proceeded to play a selection.
on the drum, as only the Major can, accompanied
by his son with the fife,
"Harmony in Nature" was the subject of Miss
Opal McGauhey's choice. This delightful essay
was Buthcient to convince tne most skeptical
that the had devoted much and careful thought-
to the beauties and harmony of the old dame;
and the finely selected sentences with her pleas-.
ing delivery: thww a oba-iRto;;icr wrking,:at
onco attracting 'and holding 'the Jtwatlon of
those present.
The essay "Should1 our boyf have superior ad
vantages to our girls", delivered by Miss Annie
Kramph was most excellent, showing that she
understood tho nguts to which her sex is en
titled and was prepared in a logical manner to
champion their cause. The solo "Only a Bream
of My Mother" was rendered by Mr. Bare assisted
in the chorus by Messrs. Swarthout, Warner and
Williams, after which the diplomas were pre
sented by Principal Allwine, who in a short but
well-timed and feeling address to the members
of the class showed his appreciation of them as
pupils and how deeply he was interested in their
future prosperity. Major Henderehot again ap
peared and after giving the audience a specimen
of tho way in which he can handle the drum sticks
was greeted with rounds of applause. Then fol
lowed the valedictory by Miss Birdie McGauhey,
her subject being "America our Choice," a poem
of more tlian orJinary merit and one which
would do credit to a poetess of much greater pre-
tensoins than is Miss McGauhey. Well written
and nicely delivered, it was an effort of which
any young lady should feel justly proud. Mr.
Byerly acted as manager of tho exercises, and
taking them as a whole they were pleasing and
instructive and appreciated by all who attended.
Owing to the excess of rains, mosquitoes,
never very bad here, are more numerous this
year than usual, and the buffalo gnat, ah, we al
ways have this little pest in June and July. To
protect themselves from tho latter, cowboys for
merly used a net made of veiling placed over the
hat and fastened around tho neck. Town people
generally use oil of pennyroyal, a small quantity
of which rubbed on the back of the head, behind
10 ears and over tho eyes favorite feeding
grounds of the "beast" forming a very good
protection for a short time, but should be ap
plied about every hour to bo effectual. Abetter
remedy where persons are out all day or nights
for protection against both gnats and mosqui
toes is a mixture of equal parts of grease and
tar rubbed on the face, hands and all exposed
parts. The application is said to wash off readily
with the use of soap and water, but we imagine
tho wearer does not present a very beautiful ap
