Cass County's Institute Meets at Louisville, July 22, I88G. FIKST DY. All day long the. teachers kept coming in from all parts of the county with an occasional visitor from adjoining coun ties. As per arrangements the opening exercises we:e held in the 31. E. church, consisting of music by the Glee club, pray er, address of welcome by Rev. Parker and a response by A. L. Timblen, follow ed by a social hour, which was an enjoy able affair, affording the teachers an op portunity for renewing old acquaintances and becoming acquainted with the citi zens of Louisville, who are deserving of great credit for the manner in which the' received.them and their anxiety for their welfare'during their sojourn here, and es pecially) is Mr. J. A. Sutton deserving of credit for the efficient manner in which he is looking after the comforts of attend ing teachers. SKCOND DAY. Jct.v 23. The institute prspcr began at the High School building at 9 o'clock a. m. with Supt. Spink and instructors W. W. Drummond, of Plattsniouth, Will T. Cline, of Weeping Water, and J. A. Sutton, of Louisville, present and forty one teachers from all parts of the coun ty. After listening to a few well .timed remarks from Supt. Spink, W. W. Drum mond, and others, the institute proceed ed to perfect an organization. On mo tion, J. A. Sutton was elec ted Sec. with T. E. Williams as assistant. It was de cided by a vote of the teachers present that all canvassing agents for periodicals, school journals, and text books, be ex cluded from the institute during all the regular sessions, which consists of one each day, beginning at 8 o'clock a. m., and continuing until 12:o0 o'clock p. ni. Institute Notes. J. A. Sutton teaches penmanship and reading. The subject of the lecture last evening was "Satan." Why are not some of the Plattsniouth teachers attending the Institute. W. W. Drummond v.a usual takes the branches of mathematics and physiology. The teachers should organize a Cass county teachers association i hile at the Institute. Supt.

The teacheis generally spend the after noon playing croquette on the several school grounds in town. There is talk of haying a regular old-fashioned picnic in Juckman's grove, one afternoon next week. In looking over the teachers we fail to recognize many teachers that were in at tendance three years ago. Will T. Cline as an instructor in his tory and geography, is considered by the teachers well able to lead on the subject. The lecture last evening by Dr. Creigh ton, of the Weslyan College at Lincoln, was well attended by teachers and citizens. Mr. F. Harlan, of Waco, Neb., is a visitor. Mr. Harlan speaks well of the manner in which our institute is being conducted. Mr. Drummond's loyejstory yesterday afternoon was listened to attentively. We are only sorry the prospective bride denied him the pleasure of kissing her. The number of teachers enrolled the first day were forty-one, second day sixty, and it is thought that ere the institute closes the meeting w'.ll reach over one hundred. The problem used by Drummond in mental arithmetic yesterday was: What two numbers between 35 and 840 have the former for their G. C. D. and their latter for their S. C. M. Lady school inarms are considerably in the majority, probably owing to the fact that many of the gentlemen teachers farm during the summer, and are obliged to look after their crops at this time.

South Bknd, Neb. July 2.1. A few days ago, Mr. J. Streight, one of our most enterprising merchants, asked us to take a seat in his carriage, behind his spanking bays, and in a very few minutes we drove up to the pretty cot tage of M. E. O'Brien, superintendent of the state fishery; after a hearty shake of the hand by O'B., a few pleasant words from Mrs. O'li. and a few minutes play with little Lottie, their charming little daughter, we went to the hatchery house, in which are the large aquariums of all the different kinds of fish, the hatching aparatus, andjvery many glass jars, of the different kinds of the tinny tribe, snakes, tizzards, etc. etc., preserved in alcohol. To see the contents of this house alone, would well repay any one for a trip of 100 miles. From the hatching house we went up towards the spring house. Be tween the two houses there are four ponds with solid stone dams, each containing speckled trout, from one to three and four years old; and when Mr. O'Brien would scatter a handful of feed across the water, it would seem to be aliye with the speckled beauties, as they would leap about trying to get the feed. Be low the hatching house, is a breeding pond, and the one next to the lower dam is the deepest. In this are the big fellows. Mr. O'Brien says that they usually lay in the deep, dark, pools and are slow to rise for feed, except in the early morning; however, when he threw in some, two or three big fellows broke water, and when we saw them, we could not help but wish we had them at the end of a good rod. From here we went to the black bass pnd, which is alive with has9, and sun fish, the sun fish being there to make feed for the bass; it was a pretty sight to watch them playing in and out among the green moss that covers the bottom of the lake, always on the watch and when an unfortunate grasshopper lights upon the water, a dozen hungry mouths are ready to snap him up. Just east of this pond is a larger pond, or lake, that is de signed for carp, but I think there is none in it now. In this lake is one of the pret tiest boats that we ever saw in the west, a regular little daisy. From here we went to the large pond on the west, which is the carp hatching pond. Already this season over 20,000 youDg carp have been taken from this pond, and still the sup ply is unlimited, but at this season, the weather is too warm to move the young Who shall e - veil But on her good If 0 5: .,. ; t 1- fish. In this lake we saw some white pondlillics, whic h are seldom seen in the i west. Mr. O'B. bru"ht the bulbs from j the cast and thinks that he has them suc -! cessfully started. From this pond we went to the dog kennel, where we were shown some ten, or a dozen of the pret tiest bird dogs that we ever saw, but chief among them was a cochen spaniel that Mr. O'B. brought from Michigan. He is a beauty and as smart as he is pret- ! ty After having passed a very pleasant morning, we bade our friends good bye and very reluctantly turned our backs upon their pleasant home. II. N. S. Fighting for Whisky with Winches ters. j Louisvim.e, Kt., June 2-1. A letter ! was received by Marshal Gross this niorn i ing from one of his deputies, stationed at Harian Court House. The letter shows thst a most alarming feud exists there. The date of the letter i July 22. It runs as follows: " We are having a state of warfare in Harlin Countj' at this time between the wkisky men and the citizens. The whis ky men are determined t sell at all haz zards. Our county judge done all he could to stop it, but could not do so until he had taken the 'blind tigers' by force of arms. In this way he captured and poured out all the whisky. Then the whisky men left town and got their friends assaulted the town and a battle was fought which resulted in the wounding of J. S. Bayley and William Mappins, of the citizens side, and William C. Polin and Joseph Blair, of the whisky men. This was en the 21st inst. The whisky men were dis lodged after a heavy battle; then they went out and got their friends and "Wil liam Howard who waylaid and killed three men in this vicinity two years ago. They crept before day this morning into the bushes and began firing on the town with Winchesters. Again, a terrible bat tle occurred wlich resulted in the wounding of Jake Howard, one of the whisky men. The county judge, with about 100 men, rrmed with Winchesters, occupy the court house, and will hold it or die. We are expecting another battle, as the whisky men are scouring the coun try in all directions getting men and guns." Do you not feel encouraged wi-en in the ham mock to doze And a paer by stops and mumbles something thro'-gh his nose.

Johnstown, Neb., July 2G. Early this morning the work of rescuing Anderson was resumed. The men worked as rapid ly as the circumstances would permit in removing the dirt from above him. This had to be done with the utmost caution, as the displacement of one board or the giving way of any part of the earth in wh'ch the curbing rests is liable to cause the whole structure to collapse and pre cipitate Anderson to the bottom, a hun dred feet below. About all that is cov ering him now are the boards of the old curbing, that have foimed into something of a roof and to get to him a hole must be cut through this. It will be a very dangerous task, as the curbing and a large quantity of sand are resting on these boards. An effort was made to saw the boards, but after cutting one board the curbing sank a few inches and con siderable sand caved in. Anderson ask ed for tools and material and has been working most of the day as much as his strength would permit making the curbing from his platform and bracing the roof. Food and water has been giv en him regularly and he is much stronger today. Work has been suspended until daylight, when the boards will be cut again, and if Anderson's curbing and bracing stand the test his chances are good of getting out alive. From Thursday's Daily. Judge Russell issued a marriage li cense yesterday eyening to Mr. Isaac E. Wilson and Miss. Emma I. Snoke. Mr. J. S. Rouse, who has been spend ing a few days with the family of Judge Matthews, returned to his home at Green wood this morning. Miss Alma Waterman, who accompan ied Mr. Henry Waterman and wife on their trip east two months ago, returned home this morning, looking much re freshed for her trip. She reports having a delighful time. Miss Lida Patterson, who has been at tending school at Evansville, 111., and who has been to Pittsburg recently on a visit, has returned home. Mr. Sam Pat terson accompanied her as far as Cincin nati and remained over to take ia the ex position there. He sail "It is extren ely ann ia it not?" She sid,"VH yes, ti sartv."

It is now well known that most diseases are due, not to over-abundance, but to impurity, of the Blood ; and it is equally well attested that no blood medicine is so efficacious as Ayer's Sarsaparilla. " One of my children had a large sore break out on the leg. We applied, simple remedies, for a while, thinking the sore would shortly heal. lint it grew worse. We sought medical advice, and were told that an alterative medicine was necessary. Ayer's Sarsaparilla being Recommended above all others, we used it with mar velous results. The sore healed and health and strength rapidly returned." J. J. Armstrong, Weimar, Texas. "I find Ayer's Sarsaparilla to he an admirable remedy for the cure of blood diseases. I prescribe it, and it does the work every time." E. L. Pater, M. 1)., Manhattan, Kansas. " We have sold Ayer's Sarsaparilla here for over thirty years and always recommend it when asked to name the best blood-purifier." W. T. McLean, Druggist, Augusta, Ohio.

They number over sixty, and their perfect execution attests the unstinted manner in whicli the new man agement of this superb magazine is cater ing to the tastes of the public. The Journal go- s back to l.sflO for good times and compares the high taxes and hard times of lsyy with the low taxes and days of democratic simplicity under old Jimmy Uuchanan in 180. We wonder if there is a democrat in all this country so ignorant that he cannot ap preciate this comparison of the Journal. By the way! The Journals suggestion as a political contrast between '8S and "GO would be a most frightful subject for the magic pencil of the "revenue reform' artist Bruso, How Mr. White's widow would shine with a soul harrowing car toon that would cause the '88 "working man's"' liver to turn green with envy when he looked back over the dark ex panse of hard times to the green pastures of 18G0.
