Mr. t'raig. the laiKii.'"!-, ati'l his wile are in the city :i''.v completing arrangements In this till, and the machinery has been shipped from M r. Craig's lormer loca tion, Gloverville, N. Y., the head quarters of glove manufacturing. The factory will be located mi the eco:nl '!Hir nf the Waterman Mock, and for the present the extent of the .nacliinery will he -oinposed of ten machines and four cutters, and ahout twenty employes. Most of them ex- perienced workmen, which will add a unrulier of new residents to the city. We understand that Mr. Craitf has heen seeking a new tield of operation tor some time, and while he has vis ited numerous other points he claims 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 IHiwcr to help the enterprise along. 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 ness men it will also prove an induce ment for other eastern enterprises seeking western locations to come here.

VERY IMPORTANT OPINION Sheriffs Cannot Charge Millage and at the Same Time Use Passes. Assistant Attorney General W.

The opinion holds that he had no ritiht lo relinquish the fees or to vary them from the statutory amount. In addition to its widespread effect on contracts wherehy the sheriffs of the state use annuals under similar condi tions, it is lelieved that the ruling as to fees will affect other officials who have lieen in the hahit of commuting them, especially justices of t he peace, who sometimes auree with collection agents to make special rates, J Mr. Kose says in his communication to the state auditor: "Since your communication was re ceived, the sheriff called at this office and frankly stated his position. lie 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 .sheriff's contract to charge no lees in casts in which the railroad company is interested is. therefore, absolutely i void as against public policy, and can- that the auditor of public accounts should decline to issue a warrant therefor."

The injuries consisted of broken hones of one ankle and heel and dis location of other ankle, making pain ful injuries from which it will require some time to fully recover. lie was taken to an Omaha hospital for treat- ment.- I mon Ledger. 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. FALLS DOWN THE STAIRS An Old Man Who is a Stranger in Town Falls Down at Perkins House. ' GOING TO THE HOME OF H!S Nephew i 1 Has Money to Fay His Way, Bat Got Left in NattsfflQ'jth.

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. NORMAL TRAINING IN THE HIGH SCHOOL 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 study. 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 training. 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.

DEMOCRATS COMING OUT 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." FOR SUPPORT OF SCHOOLS According to State pportionment Cass Will Receive $4,983.29. The semi-annual state school appor tionment hy counties has just heen completed hy State Superintendent MeBrien.

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 based on :;75.:n4 children, being the number of persons of school age in the districts t hat share in the apportion ment.

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 ways. 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 ton, Wash., "and the doctors could 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 Cure." It makes the diseased kidneys sound so they will eliminate the pois ons from the blood. I'nless they do this, good health is impossible. F. (J. Fricke - Co. Card of Thanks.
