A Challenge. A Book Free.
We never saw as sweeping a
claim as the publishers of "King's
Handbook of the United States"
make for that book. Thtysay:
"Find any other well-made book,
"having HALF the type, ONK-FIFTH
"the illustrations, and ANY maps of
"equal excellence, at the same price,
"and we will give you a copy FKEK.
"ThenT 1 no Irick in these words

"which' you read them."
America's most comple'e print
ing concern is the Art-Printing
Works of the Matlhews-Xorthrup
Co. of UtilTalo, the publishers of
this book; and as they are rated nt
a quarter of a million, they are able
to hack up their challenge. The
work contains thousands of pic
tures, page or double-page maps of
every slate and territory, nearly a
thousand large octavo pages, and
sells for only irLTH). Many hundreds
of prominent educators and states
men assisted in editing or revising
it, and every word, cut and map are
new and expressly fortius hook. It
is first in the field with figures from
the new census, and is the only
book which tells of the greatness
aud glory of "Our Country" as it is
to day, at the threshold of the
world's fair. We understand that
it is selling wonderfully where in
troduced; most people are will;,! j
to buy when they get a great di'
for little money, and this "Ch.'i
1 nge" should make short work
it a fellow would either buy 1 .-r

lars are certainly the finest we ever
saw, ami from them we infer that
J. M. French & Co., "d-' and 513 Pax
ton block, Omaha, are the general
agents for this field. We advise our
local canvassers to look this up, for
if the book is what is claimed it will

A Laughable Letter.
The work of compiling facts and
figures relative to the cost per acre
of producing corn in Nebraska is
going on noth withstanding obstac
les in the way. Labor Commis
sioner Andreas has sent out blanks
to leading fanners all over the state
and as a rule the replies are very
satisfactory, lie ran across a reply
yesterday, however, that made him
look twice to be certain he was not
mistaken. This "leading" farmer
and probable disciple of Jay Hur
rowB, replied in this April fool style:
"I can't see what business it is to
eney of you White Shirt Sharps
What I raise or how much I raise as
long as I support myself & pay my
debts. I have no money for eney
of you money Sharps. I hope that
1 will never hear from Kney of you
Sharps a gin."
This interesting reference to
"money sharps" was found at the
(mdjof the Clark report under the
head of remarks. The intelligent
farmer who wrote it and whose name
ia suspressetl "on account of his
family," evidently started to fill out
the blank in earnest. The first
question, interest or value of land at
8 percent (estimated per acre) he
answers by saying: "I don't under
stand you. I pay 7 per cent." To
the item of taxes he says: "My taxes
on pK) was f?i:i" To the cost of
seed he facetiously says: "I had my
own seed. I don'l know its value."
In regard to cost of cultivating he
states that he "tended his own corn
and kept no account." Then to wind
up with he says in relation to cost
of husking: "I cut my corn up."
He also informs the white shirt
money sharps that he "raised ten
acres of corn; probably it went
twenty-live bushels to the acre; I
don't know; I did not measure it."
Such reports as this are calculated
to discourage honest efforts, but the
good work will go right on.--I.in.

The Cass County Teachers' Insti
tute, now being held at Weeping
Water, has just finished the first
week's good, faithful work.
Holding the institute at this time
of the year was something of an ex
periment, but one which has
proved very successful, all agreeing
that it is much more pleasant to
study at this time of the year than
iu the heat of summer as heretofore.
Prof. Noble as conductor proves
himself fully competent for the
position. He is greatly to be com
mended for having secured such
able assistants. Prof. A. H. Water
house, Prof. Miller of Lincoln, editor
of the Northwestern Journal of
Education, Miss Tucker of Lincoln
and Supt. Noble have charge of
classes iu all the branches which
our county teachers need.
There are over one hundred
teachers in attendance.

Joe, the enterprising, energetic
and strictly one-price clothier, has
received his mammoth stock of
spring and summer clothing and
furnishing goods, which is the
largest stock carried in Cass
county. Particular pains were
taken by Joe in selecting this stock
and he bought the cream of the
market in the clothing line. Joe
has now the finest line of clothing
ever brought to the city, which will
be sold strictly nt one price, and
that as low as the lowest. Joe litis

will give away a line suit of clothes
as the first pri.e, a good leather

fine white shirts as the third. Joe
will give these pri.es to the gentle

Some of the Provisions of the Bill
Passed by the House
W.Vsiiinc.tox, 1). C, April 1. A
bill helil by friends and foes alike
to be one of the most important
now lending in congress was
passed by the house to-day after
only thirty minutes' debate. The
bill in question is commonly known
as "the Chinese exclusion bill," and
was reported by the committee on
foreign alTairs and to day taken up
on motion of Mr. (leary of Califor
nia. Mr. (Icary paid that the Chi
nese government, both through its
officers at home and iu this country,
had done everything in its power to
violate the spirit of the treaty.
Messrs. Herman and Cutting also
favored the bill, and, after further
debate, it was passed -yeas, 17lJ;
nays, 1M. The bill absolutely pro
hibits any Chinese whether or not
subjects of China, excepting diplo
matic and consular officers and ser
vants, from entering the United
States, and the Chinese who may
hereafter leave this country are pro
hibited from returning to this coun
try. It makes liable to arrest on a
warrant issued by any justice, judge
or United States Commissioner.
Chinese entering this country by
crossing its boundaries or found
tinhipfull) in the United States and
provides for the punishment of the
Chinese by imprisonment not to ex
ceed five years, and subsequent
removal from this country to
that front whence they came
and provided that they when
they come here from China by way
of continguous foreign territory,
shall be returned to China, The
act applies to subjects of China and
all Chinese, even if subjects of any
other foreign power. A proviso al
lows the secretary of the treasury to
admit Chinese other than laborers
or artisans to temporarily visit the
United States under such rules as
he may prescribe. The last clause
repeals all acts inconsistent with
this and seta aside the provision of
all treaties now in force between the
United States and China which may
conflict with the provisions of this
act. Violations of the l..v will be
followed by line and imprisonment.

"There is no much to find fault with
aud bo much to wish for in mu h a j;reit
big, dirty city as ours that sometimes
tho good, sweet, modest fact connected
with onrcliaritahle institutions are over
looked," fwid a visitor to the Wilson In
dustrial school and inission its ulio cuiiia
away from there the other day. The
building at 1-5 St. Mark'it place waa
turned, tiearly forty years ao, from a
factory into the pleasant school house
which it now is. This school, which was
tho tirst institution of the kind in Amer
ica, is not endowed and is tnaintaincdr
entirely by voluntary contribution. Mrs.
Jonathan Sluices is the. first director,
ami many familiar names are on tho list
Tho mati of tho school is Misf
luuily 1 lutit itilon, the originator of the
system of kitchen garden training, a
branch of work now carrii-d on not
only at tho Wilson school and elsewhere
in this city, but in other American cities
and in Canada, England, Ireland, Scot
land and France. Miss Huntington has
made the mission housn her home, and
hero she watches day by day tho result
of tho methods which she hits estab
lished. It is with a fascinating Intercut that
one listens to tho kilo of how by the
merest chanco Miss Huntington, at
eighteen, just out of nchool and ready
to bo ushered into fashion's pleasures,
chanced to le takon by a frioud to visit
a "ragged school," and how the only
daughter of fond parents put society
Bnd the nstial amusements of youth
aside, and not in t ho same manner, but
with tho same motive as her cousin, Fa
ther Huntington, act herself about mis
sion school work.
Nobody could work with Miss Hunt
ington's energy and her capacity for or
ganizing without developing now ideas
which should bring forth moro cotn
pleto work, so as tinio passed on and she
(rained experience, not only among the
poor, but with her own class, she made
various discoveries. One was that the
leisure of some of tho young girls of her
acquaintance might readily m put to
good account, and another that kitchen
gardening might with profit be adapted
to the rich as well as tho poor.
Sue obt liii'xl tho co-operation of some
of the mothers and tho interest of tho
girls, so that a meeting waa called for
tho purpose of developing a plan of
movement. Fifty girls met at the house
of oho of tho elder women. This was in
18ti7. It was proved that most of them,
uo matter how well vorsed they wero in
Latin and geometry, knew absolutely
nothing about domestic science, so ar
rangements wero made for forming a
normal class which should be divided
into companies, these companies to go
to tho mission for regular days of teach
ing. Theso young women, as thoir paths
divided, removed to Ilostou, Chicago
anil elsewhere and set up kitchen gar
dons of their own, with tho result that
tho systom has (spread everywhere. It
might even be said with truth that tlw
other thought, that of tho Working
Girls' clubs, emanated from this mis
sion, for Miss Grace II. Dodgo was one
of tho fifty young women who joined in
the work there, and it was no doubt be
cause of tho experience she gained at this
time her idea was conceived and devel
oped. The girls became kitchen gardeners
themselves, and afterward, when mar
riage had placed some of them in homes
of their own, they wrote to tho founder
of tho system, "You have no idea how
kitchen garden helps me with my serv
ants and my housekeeping," and to
others it gave tho means of livelihood
when unforeseen reverses of fortune
made them dependent upon their own
It must bo confessed that "kitchen
garden" is a rather misleading name,
for it suggests to many a place where
vegetabb-s aro grown for kitchen use.
When Miss Huntington waa asked about
the name, she said: "It means a system
by which all tho intricacies of domestic
scionco are taught sweeping, dusting,
washing, ironing', waiting at table, etc.
1 thought a little of changing the name
at one time because it was confounded
with the term vegetable garden, but 1
found nothing that quite took its place,
and I soon discovered that the fact that
the name had to be explained gave it
The school hours are the same here as
elsewhere from 9 to 3. There are about
200 girls, ranging in age from five to ten,
and there are tho nsnal lessons in read
ing, writing and arithmetic, which come
under the head of study. The training
in the kitchen garden branches is little
else than a systematized form of play,
and this takes up a proortionate part of
the 6chool day. New York Tribune.
