were well up in their parts, all acting
well in fact the troupe had more the ap

alists. The company had but recently start

in Missouri rivef towns, bad caused light

where the nights are cool and refreshing.

ly believe he has not been ia the party
long enough to becosae naturalized. The
land office notice has been a tempting
bait to many weak-kneed so-called Re
publican publishers, and many have been
caught therewith ; but it should not fol
low that a postofflce is attached to the
hook. The old war-horses should see
that carpetbaggers serve a reasonable
probation, before befog rewarded with
the fat things of the party.
J. I. Nesbitt arrived konae from the
Long Pine Chautauqua Wednesday morn -ins."
The subject upoa which Mr.
Nesbitt spoke was "The Iiviag Issues in
Politics," a difficult sabject to haadle be
fore do critical an aaaleaee, bat' his ire
marks appear to have beea well received,
giving general satisfactioa. The W. C.
T. U. was represented, by a strong, ag
gressive delegation, and it can readily
be seen that in treating living issues in
politics the temperance question could
not be ignored. Only a few days before
a prominent speaker had incurred the
displeasure of the ladies, something that
so gallant a man as Mr. Nesbitt did not
want to do; and yet he felt hat it was
necessary to express his hilsest convic
tions, formed after mature deliberation of
the manner in which the question should
be handled. In many respect; his views
are original, and in accord with The Tri
bune's idea of handling the i-nbject. We
shall take pleasure in laying his address
before our readers at aa early day.

to do so. Counsel Raatpliv is highly
pleased with the success he has met with
in our city and thinks there is ao reason
why this camp should not be one of the
largest and best in the order. TJae mem

The TJ. S. Court Bill.
The bill designating places for holding
United States courts in Nebraska passed
on Tuesday. The points selected are
only four Omaha, Lincoln Hastings
and Norfork. These are all in the east
ern part of the State, Hastings, the place
farthest west, being nearly one hundred
miles east of a line drawn north and south
through the center. Kearney is omitted
and is now of course ever out of the race.
This adjustment leaves North Platte in
excellent shape to be designated as one
of the points for holding court when the
next adjustment takes place, which can;
not be long, as the western part of the
State is rapidly increasing in population.

subject About midnight when the wind
suddenly came up, he rushed frantically
from the bed to the window in a half
wakened condition and jumped, striking
on the railing around the porch of the
second story, and then fell over to the
ground. Three ribs were broken on the
right side, and he was considerably in
jured and bruised in other places about
the body. Dr. Loagley was called and
dressed the wounds. For some time it
was feared the injuries would prove
fatal, but as late as Thursday evening he
had made such improvement that recov

Bebout has a claim near Wellfleet and
has a number of relatives in that vicinity.

The Lincoln county teachers institute
came to a close Thursday, one day earlier
than at first expected, on account of it
being necessary for Prof. Leach to start
for Furnas county. However the msti .
tute put in the full ten days of work, a
session having been held last Saturday.
In all there were forty-live teachers in
attendance, most of whom attended the
entire time. A "marked feature of the
institute was a disposition to work. No
gathering of teachers in this county ever
manifested, a greater desire to learn. Af
ter the first day's session they were con
vinced that they had an instructor of ex
perience and learning, who could impart
to them valuable knowledge relative to
their profession. Mr. Leach was ably
assisted by Miss Hosford, who generally
conducted the class in physiology . Supt.
Langford was also instructor in a number
There was tmt one session per day,
commencing at 8 o'clock in the morning
and continuing until 1, the afternoons by
this means being devoted to study.
On Thursday forenoon after recess, the
time was devoted to the closing exercises.-
Prof. Leach delivered a very able address
on "The Wants of the Country Schools,"
his conclusions being based upon twelve
years experience as a teacher in those
schools. He was followed by Mr. Nes
bitt, who as a former teacher and County
Superintendent, spoke as one having
knowledge of the subject under
consideration. He was followed by
by Rev. Adam Stump, who also has knowl
edge in educational matters. Then
Messrs. Sullivan, Evans and Stevens were
called upon in the order named, but they
being novitiates in the cause, what they
said could not be taken as law.
Mr. Sullivan's humor put the institute
in a happy mood, but being limited to
five minutes he could not do himself jus
tice. Prof. Leach has been engaged to con
duct the institute next year. It will be
held during the last week in August, just
preceding the beginning of the fall terms
of school. .
The institute unanimously adopted the
RESOLUTIONS OF THANKS.
Whereas, wb, the teachers of Lincoln
County, having attended the County Nor
mal Institute and wishing to express our
appreciation of the same, do

That we appreciate the interest in our

That we express to the County Com
missioners our appreciation of their in

their appropriation of necessary funds.
That we sincerely thank the people of

business was transacted:

What is this "nerrons trouble" with which ao
many now seem to be afflicted? It you will re
member a few years ago the word Malaria was
comporatively nnlalown to-day it is'as common
as any word in the English language, yet this
word covers only the meaning of another word
nsied by oar forefathers in times past. So it is
with nerrons diseases, as they and malaria are in
tended to cover what our grandfathers called
biliousness, and all are caused by troubles that
arise from a diseased condition of the liver
which in performing its functions finding that
it cannot dispose of the bile through the ordi
nary channel is compelled to pass it off through
the system, causing nervous troubles, maria, bil
ious fever, etc. You who are suffering can well
appreciate a cure. Wo recommend Green's Au
gust Flower. Its cures are marvelous.
