Quite a discussion was entered into
yesterday by a number of teachers on
the subject "are teachers held in as
high estimation as they deserve to be?"
The majority, it seems, were not satis
fled with the superficial handling of
the question, and by agreement the mat

This morning several more new teach

The Instructors are untiring in their
endeavors to build up an interest in
tbe work, and to make clear any ab
struse proposition that may come up.
The zealous professional teacher who
has the good of the woik at heart, as
well as the "boys" who only want the
money there is in it, are here; but the
boys, we are glad to note seem to want
to earn the money ; they get for their
services the same as the other fellows.
The "pretty school marm" is too nu
merous to mention, though we hear
from her quite often.
So many teachers have been arriving
that Supt. Alton has been at his wits
end to find boarding places for them ;
however, nono need stay away on that
account, as provision will be made to
comtortably care for them.
A TERRIBLE FALL.
An Omaha Painter Falls From
Roof of the High School.

painter by occupation, was instautly

past eight o'clock, by falling off the
roof of the high school buildiug to the

Buser, with other men was engaged
in repainting the high school building,
the painters all being in the employ of
P. Win Jheim. He was about to begin
painting the northeast chimney, and
had placed an eight foot ladder against
it, the ladder resting on the roof, which
slopeB toward tbe chimney. The young
man climbed to tbe top of the ladder,
when suddenly its base slipped toward
the chimney, and then both it and Buser
went over the cornice. Buser, in his
fatal plunge, after striking the cornice,
collided with a suspended staging at
tbe third story, and neaaly knocked off
two painters who were sitting on it.
Had they not heard the racket above
and instantly grabbed hold of the rope,
they would have been precipitated to
the ground and killed. Buser next
struck the porch of the north door and
finally landed upon his head and shoul

neck, crushing his skull, and fracturing

A young man hailing from Nebraska
City was arrested by tbe police yester
day and lodged in jail ovtr night. He
was arrested tor swearing and disturb
ing tbe peace he wanting to fight the
Marshal and several of the show meu.
This morning the Police Judge stood
him up on tbe dead line and said ten
dollars and costs which were paid, and
the party discharged. There is a lesson
in this to tho inhabitants of our neigh
bering city down stream. They must
not expect to run a city of our calibre
when they leave borne, lor tbere is a
police force here who watch such' fel
lows. However, the Herald thinks
the Police Judge should have beeu
more lenient, for in all probability the
young man bad never seen a policeman
before; he found his way out of Ne
braska City by following on the circus,
and being.a "tenderfoot," was entitled
to consideration, for it was the first
time he had ever seen any of the world.

Yesterdays Storm Around Lincoln.
About half past four yesterJay after
noon at tbe, time the city was visited by
a wind and rain storm, a severe hail
storm passed east of the city about two
and a half or three miles distant. It is
imnobsible to say how far the storm
extended, but all accounts agree in put
tinz the width at from two and a half
to three miles, and in saying that the
hail stoaes were lemarkably large.
Mr. J. C. McNair and Mr. Purcell
were out working on a bridge at Stev
ens creek, and were caught by the storm
as they were coming in. The hail pelt
ed the horses until they ran away, but
the driver then cot them under control
and turned them into a corn field. Mr.
Purcell protected his bead by holding a
bucket over it, out was severely bruised
on the arm and side. Mr. McNair d
no protection and bis head as cut so
severely in several places that it bled
Mr. McNair brought home a bucket
full of hail stones, and many of them
were as large as hen's eggs after he had
brought them two or tnree miles in tne
wagon. He says that they were from
three to four inches in diameter when
they fell. Some were spherical, some
oval, some diamond shaped, in fact, they
were of all shapes. Tbey feu so thick
that the depressions between the corn
rows were filled up level.
. Mr. McNair says he was about two
miles and a half from the city when tbe
storm struck him. The heavy hail seem
ed to extend for a quarter or a half mile,
and the entire strip was from two to
three miles wide. -
A telephone message from the State
farm says that a strip of country east
ot the farm for three miles was com
pletely devastated by the hail. Solid
hail stones as large as an inch and a
half in diameter fell. These were com
posed of eight - layers. The larger
stones, some of which were three inchea

TO THE FARMERS.
Many of you make contracts, and not
being accustomed to reducing them to
writing, very often when you do sign a
printed or written contract you do so
without fully understanding its con
The Nebraska and Iowa Insurance
Company of Omaha, Nebraska, have
adopted a new system in this State.
They have printed upon the back of
their Policies a copy of the application
and note given by you for insurance
when your application and note are re
ceived by the Company ; they fill out a
copy of your application on back of
Policy in detail, all the property insur
ed, just the same as the application
signed by you, and gives every answer
just as you have given it. They also
hll out a copy-ot your nolo or notes.
When this is received by you you have
the policy, a copy of your application, a
cony of every contract between you
aud the Company. This is done to avoid
havisg mistakes uncorrected between
you and tue Company during the term
of this insurance.
Your application is the basis of your
contract between you and tbe Com
Often mistakes or errors have crept
n which, if not corrected, would vitiate
your insuiance; in other words, you
have no insurance at all, and you could
not detect it unless you had a copy of
the contracts between yon and the Com
pany. Examine your contracts with us
carefully, and if any errors or omis
sions should be found we would take
pleasure in correcting them, and re
spectfully ask the patronage ot thu pro
perty-holders of Nebraska. Kepect
