The people are already beginning to

The republicans have nominated a
city ticket that will commend iteelf
to every voter in Plattsmouth, irre

Mr. Rawls nor Mr. Iiaird have ever
been candidates for office before and it

friends that they are now on the

Titkke is an old saying that "you
can't eat your cake and have it," but
the case of the loan of $2o,000,000 to
Russia, just made by New Yorkers,
comes pretty near upsetting that
theory. The money, although loaned
to Russia, is to be expended in the
United States for the purchase of the
products of American labor, and thus
labor as well as capital will profit anew
by this cumulative prosperity which
loans the money abroad and yet spends
it among the working men at home.
And yet there are a few mon left who

here a denial is authorized of pub

conferences with a view to the dispatch
of additional warships and United
States soldiers to (Jhina,and that news
of the gravest character had been re

China. There is said to be no fear en
tertained that any serious danger to
American interests is impending.

fact that a large number of the loans
are for small amounts.
The British war office has been test

the last two years. It was invented by
an Australian, who says that it will
give the range and bearine of a fixed

will give information to any number of
fortress guns attached by wire to the
instrument,thus enabling 100 guns, for
instance, to concentrate their fire sim

Trachtra' Institute to bo Held at Weep
InS Water March 26 to 31.
Superintendent W. C. Smith has
prepared a feast of eood things for the
teachers' institute to be held in Weep
ing "Water March 26 to 31. There will
be a number of fine lectures by noted
echolars, together with other features,
too numerous to mention, but a few
are recorded merely to give the
reader an idea of what the week's
course will CDntain:
The address by Rev. "Wuitmer.
"Dixie," is, without doubt, one of the
ablest discussions of the race question
to which anyone ever listened. It is
entirely original, being the result of
travel in the south aDd personal in
vestigation. Rav. "Whitmer went into
the very neighborhoods where the
lynchings took place, talked with the
negroes themselves, conferred with
educated men, studying the question
with unprejudiced intelligence. It is
of especial interest to teachers, as he
studies the relation of crime and edu
cation, and the opportunity aad mis
sion of the public schoo'.
Dr. Itedway is the author of the
6uperb natural geographies. To lis
ten to him is the chance of a lifetime,
lie is one of the world's great geo
grapher?. It is a piece of rare good
luck that we succeeded in getting him.
He will deliver two addresses, after
noon and evening Tuesday. An in
formal reception will follow the ad
dress. "Mistakes and Blunders" is the sub
ject of the lecture on Wednesday
nibt, and the lecturer is Professor
S. Y. (Ji'.lan, of Milwaukee, editor of
"The Eastern Teacher." Dr. Gillan's
experience in teaching covers the
range of all the grades from the coun
try school to the university, including
the positions of high school principal,
city superintendent, professor in a
state normal, and stato institute con
ductor. His experience and success
in institute work have made him an
acknowledged expert in that line.
During the past few yoirs his services
as an institute instructo- and lecturer
have been in demand from Pennsyl
vania to Manitobp. President Tom
kins says "His work is highly satis
factory. He seems to me to be always
pedagogically sound, and is as clear
as the sun at noonday in the presenta
tion of his subj- ct." Dr. E iierson E
White says of hin: "He keeps his
feet on the schoolroom floor and deals
practically with the teachers' duties."
Dr. (iillan is an acknowledged leadur
io educational thought throughout the
northwest. This able man will cccuny
the platform two and three limes each
Professor Charles Fordyco has stud
ied closely the health and phsical de
velopment of the pupils in Nebra-ka
school?. Ue is full of his subject and
will give a hor-t of valuable and prac
tical suggestions for teachers as we 1
as parents. He will give two lectures,
Thursday afternoon and evening.
Friday night comes Dr. Henson.
The fact that he has bien on the lec
ture platform for the past twenty years
and has been pastor of one of the larg
est congregations in Chicago for eigh
teen successive years, is suflicitnt
guarantee of his ability and the value
of his lecture. Forty cents admission
will be charged all except teachers, in
order to help defray the heavy ex
pense of so able a man.
Then thore is the art exhibit. Not
less than 400 pictures of the larger
size will be on exhibition, to say noth
ing of the smaller ones.
Miss Burgert and Professor Ferguson
are unusually strong in their particu
lar lines of work. The former will
have the primary instruction and the
latter will wake the echoes with his
What's lour Face Worth?

The republican city convention held
in White's hall Saturday evening was
well attended and altogether harmoni
ous, and it is conceded that no
stronger ticket was ever put into tho
Gild in this city than was nominated
at that convention.
Robert Iliyes, chairman of the c Mi
tral committee, called the meeting to
order and W. L. I'ickett was made
temporary chairman and George-L.

Organization having been perfected
and the call rad by the secretary, ihe

for mayor were in order. Judge Sul
livan, in a neat little speech, presented
the name of C. A. Rawls, calling at
tention to his special fitness, Pterling
qualities and patriotism. It. li. Wind
ham seconded the nomination of Mr.
Riwls and stated that "no man had
been mentioned with so many good
qualities;" that the election of such a
man for ma3or would give the city the
right kind of a reputation, etc.
Mr. Riwls was nominated by accla

The only trouble of the evening was
to fiud two men who were willing to
s-erve on the school board. The nom
inations were finally forced upon LT.
X. Dovey and William Ballance, not
withstanding the fact that both de
clined to accept the nomination. Mr.

thanking the convention for the honor.
