A New Project.
The board of education, in con
junction with Supt. McClelland
and I'rin. Hal,ey, is considering
the advisability of adding a "Hun i
nens Department" in connection
with the work of our public schools.
The idea is to draft a course of
study including the essential com
mon school branches, and in addi
tion theory of book-keeping, busi
ness forms notes, drafts, moil
gages, certificates of deposit, etc. -letter-writing
The course would probably extend
, , yf , i in little iiii'ijiiiliilil'l
uates of Ihis course am; ' !inc for
thorough preparation for business -at
lea.t a-i far as the theory of busi
ness and business education is con
cerned. It is the opinion of TllK HiiWALl)
that this a more in the right dircc
tion and should receive encourage
ment from the patrons, in asinuch
as tlie plan is calculated to benefit
the pupils. There are a great
many students, doubtless, that
pursue the work through the suc
cessive grades, until they reach the
high school, then, thinking that the
higher branches-Geometry, Alge
bra, Latin and etc, are not exactly
the work in which they wish to be
come proficient, they drop out and
are seen upon our streets wasting
their lime in idleness.
For the greater number of these
a business course as proposed
would prove fascinating and could
hardly fail to elicit their sym
pathies. Besides, the teach er employed for
this work might be expected to teach
penmanship in all the higher
grades. He can teach 1.T0 or 'J00
pupils as easily as a smaller num
ber. And then, too, we should have
the influence of a specialist in this
line as well ns in the business work.
It has become a recognized fact
among prominent educators that
to teach pemanship, sucessfully,
one should be employed who has
made special preparation. In a
Vreat many places of less popula
tion than this, special teachers for
penmanship are employed.

it will be expedient to maintain a

A Pleasant Surprise.

The event was planned and exe
cuted in commemoration of his
forfy seventh anniversary, under
immediate direction of tlie I. O. (). r
lodge of this city, of which Mr. 1. is
an honored member. The efforts of
the lodge were ably seconded by
other friends as the success of
the affair fully indicated. After

blr. Petersen was presented with an
elegant easy chair as a token of the
esteem in which he was held, by
his neighbors and friends. After

Una More Care,
Yesterday as a little boy of Mr.
I. Pearlman was crossing the street,
a teamster was driving rapidly
do'vn the road and ran over thejboy.
It seem almost providential that
t the little fellow was not killed. He
escaped with only a alight injury
about the head.
It seems certain that the driver
wa9 careless in the extreme. We
1 are tiot aware aa to whether there is
an ordinance prohibiting rapid
driving through the city, but there
la anecessity for something of the
THE STATE FAtR.
Thousands in Attendance are De
lighted with the Great Exhibi
tion of Nebraska Products.
Yesterday was a cool, cloudy,
nntumnul day, just the kind of one
for visitors to enjoy the nianioth
showing tif Nebraska products at
Lincoln, and judging from the
crowd which numbered fully tO.iKH)
people, the wonderful resources of
Nebraska were noted and fully ap
preciated. The horticultural and agricul
tural halls were filled tooverllowing
with exhibits that have never been
equaled in this state, and in our
humble opinion could not be
equaled anywhere else. The west
ern counties broke all records, with
vegetables so large they had to be
labeled what they were, and many
were cut in two to show that there
was no attempt to deceive the peo
ple with plaster of paris casts. We
saw potatoes that four would make
a big half peck, and other vegeta
bles and fruits showed the same
Lincoln county was therewith a
complete locomotive made from
the products of the soil. From the
peanut bell-cord to the water
melon cylinders, or the drive
wheels made of red ears of corn, the
engine was the constant center of a
large crowd of admirers. The ten
der was a beauty and was filled
with Lincoln county products.
Jumbo, the potato elephant, and
numerous artistic exhibits made
from shelled corn of different
colors, were not a small part of the
many attractions. The fruit ex
hibit was the largest and best we
ever saw, comprising, in addition
to Nebraska's standard fruit, the
apple, many varieties of peaches
pears, white grapes, quince , etc.
The exhibit of line horses, cattle,
sheep and hogs was fully up to
former years -except the latter,
which is the largest and finest ex
hibit ever made upon the state fair
grounds, and includes some of the
best herds to be found in Ohio,
Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas
To give one a clear and distinct
idea of the many interesting
features of the fair would require
several columns, and as The
I Ik KALI) trusts its readers will all
be able to attend on Friday, which
is booked as the big day, we will
not attempt a careful description of
the world of interesting objects to
Matched at the Fair.
The great attraction at the Ne
braska City Inhibition yesterday,
was a public marriage, held in the
all exposition building. The mana
gement, some time since, offered an
elegant bed room set to the couple
that would be married at the exposi
tion, and C. 15. Siener and Jennie
Chapplok, realizing an opportunity
to make a start toward house-keep
ing, appeared at the appointed hour
and were pronounced husband and
wife by a proper authority.
In readingover thestatc fair notes
in this morning's Lincoln Journal
we notice the following:
"Hon. M. I). Polk, of Plattsmoiith

the grounds yesterday, evincing his
interest and admiration, Polk tiro

and wire walking performance at

Daniel llurris made a trip to Ne
braska City yestereay via the
M. P. for the purpose of taking in
the reunion. Uncle Dan reports
the road in good condition. He re
ports the old soldiers havinga good
time, but thinks that today will be
the best day of the reunion.
At the reunion at Nebraska City
yestereay. while the speaking
was in progress, the grand
stand collapsed, throwing
several hundred people to Ihe
the ground. Mrs. C. Anderson was
severely injured; aside from this
the damage was not serious. More
disastrous effects might have re
sulted. Mr. II. D. Apgar, the genial, gen
tlemanly agent of the Missouri
Pacific railroad at this place, has
met with a well deserved apprecia
tion of his services by being pro
moted to the position as agent at
Plattsmoiith with an increase of H)
per month on salary. Mr. Apgar
will leave for his new field of labor
on Wednesday. During their resi
deuce here of about a year Mr. and
Mrs. Apgar have made a host of
friends who will greatly regret their
departure, but all wish them sue
cess and commend them to the
good people of Plattsmoiith.

Mr. C. M. Duller as announced
Quite a large number of neighbors
and friends gathered to participate
in the last sad rites.
Fred Gorder arrived here last Sat
urday. His stay at Plattsmoiith
was a sad one and may result in his
removal permanently to that town,
in order to enable him to attend to
ihe alfairs of his deceased father.
Such a step on his part will be re
gretted very much by this people.
Lewis Rowe. came into the city
yesterday and swore out a warrant
for the arrest of Aloiuo Moore, J.
M. Wyatt ami Chas. lvltnundson
Mr. Rowe claims that he received
violent treatment at their hands
md doubtless this is the case as
his head showed quite a cut ami be
was otherwise bruised. Doubtless
Mr. R. has a grievance from which
he needs redress, as no provocation
would justify a pounding from
three burly roughs.

many will remember as a new

We are authorized to say that L.

treasurer and will not accept the
nomination. Mr. KickhotT feels
grateful to his friends who have
pledged their support and urged
his candidacy and duly appre

feels that he cannot accept the
office and do justice to his business
Mrs. L, C. Decker, who met with
the misfortune of having her bouse
and household goods swept by
flames last spring near Union, has
now under construction a mansion
that will be a credit to Liberty
precinct. The main building it
self is :ttx:() with a rock cellar, and
will be two story's with all modern
conveniences. The building is
being built of brick that are ship
ped to Union from the steam brick
yard at Nebraska City. It i ex
pected to be completed by Oct. 15.
J. M. Gallaher, traveling freight
and stock agent for theM.P. road
made the II KHALI) office a pleasant
call this morning. He informs us
that trains will be running regular
ly from I'lattsmonth making con
nections at Union for St. Joe, Kan
sas City, St. Louis, and also Weeping
Water, and Lincoln. Thus parties
desiring to visit points in either
direction from Union will be ac
comodated by the M. P. See the
time card in another column. In
the event of any changes in the
time-card our readers will be in
formed in regard to it.

inj it will leave Union at 3 p. nr
arrive at Plattsmoiith at 4 p. in.
The distance between stations is
14.1) miles. Thin service is no'
(piite so j;ood as the Platls
monthites expected but they may
in months to come jret better ac
commodation. Fred Gorder returned from Platts
moiith last week. lie is undecided
yet whether he will remain here
permanently or not, as business
requires his attention in Platts
moiith. If he decides to return to
the latter place he will probably
sell out. Fred has many friends
here that would regret to sec him
leave and hope matters may be so
arranged that his business will con
tinue here under his supervision.

point, equal if not better than Platts
