and a response by A. L. Timblen, follow

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'

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

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

We are only sorry the prospective bride

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

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.

Pointers From State Fishery.
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

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.

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

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

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,

Beginning the Second Week.
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.

The Old Doctors
Drew blood, modern doctors cleanse it ;
hence the increased demand for Altera

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
" 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
above all others, we used it with mar
velous results. The sore healed and
health and strength rapidly returned."

"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).,

Tjik illustrations of the August num
ber of Out in f form quite a revelation as
to the pitch of excellence attained in
magazine art. They number over sixty,
and their perfect execution attests the
unstinted manner in whicli the new man

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. The Journal ia extremely fer
