The factory will be located mi the

machines and four cutters, and ahout
twenty employes. Most of them ex-

We understand that Mr. Craitf has

that Plattsmouth is the best, of all.
The citizens of I'lattsmouth will no
doubt extend to Mr. Craig the right
hand of fellowship and do all in their

We can see no reason why an enter
prise of this kind w ill not prove as suc
cessful in riattsmouth as in other
cities in the world, for that matter.
And if this factory proves so, with the
proper spirit on the part of our busi

The opinion holds that he had no

addition to its widespread effect on
contracts wherehy the sheriffs of the

to the state auditor:
"Since your communication was re

insists that his contract with the rail
road company required him to per-
foim services for it, that the pass was
given to him for such services, that
the services had been performed, and
that in this manner he paid bis rail
road fare from I'lattsmouth to Kearney
and return and should receive it from
the state as an expense paid to him. I
am satisfied the sherill has acted in
good faith and conscientiously believes
his claim for this item is both proper
and just. The question presented,
however, must he decided along on
legal grounds.
"The services which the sheriff obli
gated himself to render Tor the rail
road company, were oilicial in their
nature. The terms of the contract on
this point are free from doubt. The

casts in which the railroad company
is interested is. therefore, absolutely

Why We Do It.
Some newspaper subscribers often
wonder, no doubt, why a publisher
will keen sending the paper when the
subscription has expired. The reason
is this: When the subscription is paid
to a certain time, the time expires and
the paper is st opped. it looks as if the
publisher doubted the integrity of the
subscriber: and nine times out of ten
the subscriber will give the publisher
a "calling down" insinuating that his
credit is no good. Iiather than cast
anv reflections against a neighbor's!
honesty to pay a small debt it has be
come necessary for country newspapers
to continue sending the paper after
the time has expired. The city
weeklies and dailies do not generally
follow this rule, as their subscribers
live at a distance, and besides they
are not acquainted with them and do
not know their financial standing.
One should deem it an honor to know
tint his credit is not doubted, when
the publisher continues to send the
paper. Should the subscriber desire
to have his paper discontinued lie
should inform the publisher and re
mit todate, if any amount is owing.
An Old Man Who is a Stranger in Town
Falls Down at Perkins House.

in NattsfflQ'jth.
An old gentlemen r eg;-1 erimg his

ithe morning ahout leven ""clock and
-1 :u i cd dow n t h- h tck stair.vay, and
at about four or ;ie steps from the
i hot torn h" slipped an.-:
him unconscious for some
time, and
at tirst it was thought that h-- was
seriously injured, hut when medical
assistance arrived it. proved that he
was in noway injured internally, and
but slightly bruised and stunned.
The old gentleman is v years of
age, who hails from Hoise City, Idaho,
where he has been a prospector for
the past fifty years, and having no
family he was going to Chad wick, 111.,
where he has a nephew, to make his
future home.
He was a peculiar old gentleman,
being so childish that he was hardly
able to travel with safety alone, and
upon his hat he wore an express tag,
hearing his name and where he wished
to go, and asked that some kind friend
see that he was put on the right train.
The cause for him being in I'latts
mouth was that he left train No. 2
yesterday evening and while out on
the depot walk the train pulled out
and left him here. He will prob
ably be able to take up his journey
this evening.
Nebraska Educators Have Decided on
Novel Method of Instruction.
Normal training in high schools was
discussed at length at a conference of
the members of the sub-committee of
the state association of superinten
dents and principals of graded schools,
in Lincoln Saturday. Those present
were: Superintendent K. L. House,
chairman, I'lattsmouth: Superinten
dent A. A. Reed, secretary, Superior:
Superintendent .lames E. Delell.
Lexington: State Superintendent Mc
Irien, Lincoln: President J. W. Crab
tree, Peru: and President A. o.
Thomas, Kearney: Dr. L. P. Ludden,
of the state board of education, and
President W. II. Clemmons, of the
Fremont Normal college, were invited
to participate In the meeting.
It was agreed unanimously to re
commend the following as the basis
upon which to approve high schools
for giving normal training, in accord
ance with the new law for the certifi
cation of teachers. Following is the
basis of the course:
A high school in order to be ap
proved for normal training must be a
school accredited to the University of
Nebraska, with a four years course of
At least three teachers exclusive of
the city superintendents shall give
their entire time to instruction in
high school branches.
High school graduates only shall re
ceive credit for high school normal
The course in normal training shall
be elective, and shall consist of a
review of the live essential branches,
reading, grammar, arithmetic, geo
graphy and history to be given not
earlier than the eleventh grade, and
at least seventy-two periods of profes
sional training to include a study of
methods, school management, obser
vation work. etc.. to be given in the
twelfth grade.
The course in American history, now
offered in Nebraska high schools in
the eleventh or twelfth grade, carried
for at least one semester, will meet
the requirements in that branch.
Heading, gram me r. geography and
arithmetic shall be reviewed fur at
least nine weeks each. The work
should include subject matter, under-1
lying principles and methods of teach
ing, and should enable the students to
approach the subject from the stand
point of teacher, rather than that of
student. It should be given by well
trained, experienced teachers.
The professional training shall be
given by the city superintendent of
schools, or by a member of the high
faculty recommended by the city
superintendent and approved by the
state superintendent of public instruc-onit.

Four Candidates Mentioned by Chairman
Allen For Governor.
Twin Allen, chairman of the demo
cratic state committee, was in Omaha
last Friday afternoon and night at
tending to some legal matters, and
among other things, he told a reporter
of the Pee that the democratic party
was already organized for the coming
fray and didn't need reorganizing. He
also said:
'In view of the fact the democrats
have a splendid chance to secure the
governorship, and also to get a United
States senator, a lot of candidates w ill
come out for the state otlice. I under
stand W. II. Thompson will be a can
didate, also A. C. Shallenbarger of
Alma, probably Mayor Prown of Lin
coln and George Perge. I have not
heard enough expressions, on the mat
ter to say what will be the strength
of the men mentioned when it comes
to getting the nomination.
"What we do of course will depend
largely upon what the republicans do.
.'I look for a mighty right in the re
publican party over nominations and
I expect to see them attempt to leave
out two or three of their present state
officers who are candidates for renomi
nation. Should the railroads win out
in the right for nomination 1 look for
the nomination of a man like Judge
Pobertson of Norfolk, while if the
railroads lose I would not be surprised
if George Sheldon or Dempster of
Beatrice should get the place. 1 think
Sheldon is a mighty good man."
Mr. Allen is a brother-in-law of W.
J. Bryan and Mrs. Allen received a
letter from the American traveler sev
eral days ago. dated a month ago and
mailed in Japan. The letter said Mr.
Bryan and his family would spend
Christmas in Manila and that all were
well and enjoying the trip.
Eox Cars Are Scarce.
"We have more grain business to
move on the Burlington, stored up in
elevators along the lines than There
are suiiicient box cars on all the lines
in the state to move," says a Burling
ton conductor. "Every station has
its elevators filled with grain and
every station agent is asking for
empties. The Burlington will have
to get a great many cars from some
where if the worst box car famine in
the history of railroading does not
fall to the lot of Nebraska during the
next forty days."
According to State pportionment Cass
Will Receive $4,983.29.

and expended the maximum amount
of taxes, but did not have- enough
money to maintain school nine months
in the year. To such affidavits the
statement was attached that the
failure of the railroads to pay their
taxes prevented the raising of enough
money. The state superintendent is
authorized under the law to permit
such districts to share in the appor
tionment, and he has done so.
The total fund apportioned is yJ;.;,
4I1.S.1. Last year the December ap
portionment was s-272,000. The rate
per scholar in this apportionment is a
fraction over seventy cents. This is

2!. Ir) District Court-
The city of I'lattsmouth has by its
attorney, Harvey D. Travis, Ii led a
petition in the district court against
the Nebraska Telephone company,
praying for a permanent injunction
be issued enjoining said company from
further use of the streets and alleys
of said city.
The plaintiff claims that said com
pany have no right to the use of its
streets and alleys, and that no fran
chise was issueo, and that they have
had the use of the same since 1SS to
the present date, and that now some
of the poles have in many places be
come rotten and are in a dangerous
j condition: are being used as hitching
posts and are in many ways a nuisance.
Plaintiff further alleges that defend
ant was given notice to remove said
poles on or about the 27th day of No
vember. 1''.., by ordinance, and that
the city has ordered the company to
remove said poles on Main street be
tween First and Eighth streets, and
that they have had due notice of such
ordinance being passed and have re
fused to comply with the same.
The plaintiff prays that an injunc
tion may be issued permanently en
joining the said company from further
use of the streets and alleys of the city.
The case will come up at the next
term of the district court and will
probabiy be a very interesting and
hotly contested number.
Mrs. Maud Burley Asks Divorce.
Mrs. Maud Burley has by her attor
ney filed a petition with the clerk of
the district court, asking for a divorce
from her husband, John Burley. The
plaintiff alleges in her petition that
her husband is a drunkard, has upon
many occasions used vile and profane
language, and has abused her in many
She also asks possession of her child
ren, as her husband is an unfit person
to look after them, and further asks
that the court grant her a permanent j
alimony of 40 per month for the sup-1
port of herself and children.

'I had kidney trouble for years."
writes Mrs. Kaymond Conner of Shel

not help me. I tried Foley's Kidney
("tire, and the very lirst dose gave me
relief and I am now cured. I cannot,
say too much for Foley's Kidney

sound so they will eliminate the pois
