allthat remained of theonce genial and
noble-hearted Frank Dickson, wascon

gan, of Plattsmouth; and John Done
Ian and P. T. Davis, of Weeping Water.
Frank Dickson was born at Syca

ents removed to Factoryville, Penn.,
where lie lived mil i 1 he was seventeen
years of age. Then he followed the

Mr. Dickson's verysudden and unex
pected death on Wednesday, January
13, 19o4, was a severe blow to his fam
ily and )osts of friends, who deeply
sympathise with the aflllcied. wife and
Why Do We Worry?
Why do we worry about what others
say or think of us. If we go along and
do what seems to ourselves right, we
arc doing the best we know how, and
that is all t)mt anyone can do. Allow
ing ourselves to do what others say we
should do, Is what causes disturbance
of our peace many times; if we trust
our own ability or the life within our
selves for our guide and pay little at
tention to what others door think, we
usually plpase pjirsclvps and when we
do that it's likely what ptlierg say or
think won't hurt very bad. The per
sons that make a business of finding
fault with others In a spirit of hatred
are hurting themselves more than any
one else, and are the most miserable of

of their hire realize the value of these
associations and are always on hand.
It Is the duty of every teacher, high or
low, to be present on such occasions If

present but should be there to take
part, and to listen to othcrs-to
learn. And then when she goes
back to the school room carry back
wi til her and put to the best use for her
pupils the results. School boards
should notice whether their teachers
attend or not, and if she is there par

day it should be considered a strong
point in her ravor that should be borne
in mind in a practical manner when
the time comes for hiring again. lie

A Wholesome Entertainment.
To those who are patroDsof the Pub'
lie School Lecture Course, Friday
night's entertainment by Trot. Tear
son, of the Lyceum Bureau, was most
pleasantly and wholesomely enjoyed.
Professor Pearson Is a reader of note
of the writings of such authors as
field, Riley, Poe, Lowell, Kipling and
Mark Twain. Spllman Riggs was listed
for this number of the Course, but
having cancelled bis date, it reflects
credit on our home management in
replacing him with Pearson.
The entertainer charmed and de
lighted his audience by reminiscence
of Riley and Field, and the manner
in which he rendered some of their
popular productions. He gave an In
teresting account of bow the famous
Rllcy-Nye Combination advertlsAit
themselves for Lyceum work. When
tne compact was made that thpv
should travel together,' it was mutual-
ly arranged that each should write
"the other fellow's" bioirraDhv. Thl
afforded them an opportunity enjoyed
oy uie puoiic, perhaps as much as by
the celobritles themsolves.
Professor Pearson entered well into
the spirit of "Little Bor Blue .' &
littlo poem written by Field upon the
occasion of the death of his eldest
child; and swung tbe emotions of his
Hearers to the opposite extreme by
his "perfectly kUHnf". rendition of
Riley's story about "The Miller Boys."
One who heard Riley read bis own
"The Miller Boys" recently was heard
to remark that Pearson did this as
well as Riley himself... In his enneln.
slon the entertainer really brought
uown me house in a selection from
Mark Twain, w herein a too-prcsumlmr
gentleman was enmeshed bv thn '
