GLAD HANDS TO NEBRASKANS
Brjan's Home Folks Given a Cordial Re
ception in New York.
CERTAINLY ARE THE LIONS OF THE DAY
What Col. Bills Has to Say About Nebras
ka's Favorite Son.
A special from New York, under
date of August 27, says: "New York's
reception to Nebraska's "Bryan home
folks" has been cordial. Scats, which
are In great demand, have been assur
ed the entire party, and the rooms of
Mayors Brown Brown and Dahlman
have been crowded with visiting dem
ocrats and Ncbraskans resident in New
York. The presence of the delegations
has started a movement among Ne
braskans here for the organization of
a Nebraska club. Trouble is being ex
perienced in securing permission to go
down the bay, except as a party and
meet the Princess Irene, and Mayor
Dahlman wired President Roosevelt at
Oyster Bay for permission, which can
be granted In emejgency. It was re
ported today that Mr. Bryan has been
delayed at some island en route, but
no confirmation of the rumor could be
secured. Tomorrow night the Ne
braska bunch goes to Luna park to
visit Skip Dundy and the next even
ing to see Ruth Bryan's play."
Our Mayor in the Swim.
A special from New York says:
'Norman E. Mack, democratic state
committeeman, gave an Informal
luncheon this afternoon at the Hoff
man House to the western visiting
mayors here to attend the W. J.
Bryan reception and to several other
"Those who were Mr. Mack's guests

The team of W. D. Warner, of Faci

day by taking a lively spin down
Main street without a driver. Mr.
Warner had brought over a load of po
tatoes and Just got the last "spud" un
loaded at Dovey's store when the bays
took It into their heads to hit the high
places for the ferry. Accordingly they
started without warning on the keen
Jump for the river road, dashing across
the Burlington tracks and down tne
steep and twisted trail to the bottom
road, miraculously making the steep
turn without tipping over the wagon,
and were stopped, well on their way to

horses, harness nor wagon were Injur

It Is not now generally known, but
some twenty-six years ago, a demo

by Wentworth & Crites. The senior

TEACHERS IN GREAT DEMAND
State Superintendent McBrien Has Appli
cations for Hundreds of Them.
Six principals for graded schools and
about 300 teachers for miscellaneous
positions in Nebraska are needed by
State Superintendent McBrlen's office
to supply calls that he has received
from various places, says the Lincoln
News. The state superintendent's
office Is a sort of clearing house where
school boards and teachers are brought
together. It finds employment for a
large number of teachers every year,
and the prospects are that It will be
able to place more of them In good
paying situations this annum than
At Nelson, Nuckolls county, a prin
cipal Is wanted, and the board of edu
cation Informs Superintendent Mc
Brien that it will pay $100 for the
right man. HyannlB Is after a princi
pal and offers IM as the inducement
to come there, At Mitchell, 175 Is the
wage limit, while Firth and Holmes

schools to serve at a $tiO stipend. York

Cass and Wayne have a surplus of
"We always have a strong demand
for teachers at this time of year," said
Mr. McBrien. "I think there Is a
sufficient number In the state to fill
all the available positions. The only
problem Is to bring them Into touch
with the boards of education la coun

THE METHODIST S.S. PICNIC
One of the Most Delightful Occasions of
the Summer Held in Mapes' Grove.
Tuesday was a gala day for the
youngstcrs-and the "oldsters" as well
of the Methodist Sunday school, the
occasion being their annual picnic.
At an early hour those In charge of
affairs went out to the grounds in
South Park, known as Mapes' pasture,
which Is said to be an Ideal picnic
spot, and put upswings, benches, etc.,
and while yet the day was young the
merry-makers began to assemble, and
the collection of lunch baskets and
lemonade buckets grew apace, and be
fore long one of the jollicst of times
was in full swlntr.
The program committee was both
able and energetic and all kinds of
races and contests were successfully
pulled off and prizes awarded to vari
ous winners. There were tugs-o'-war,
potato races, human-wheelbarrow
races, nail-drlving contests, and a
dozen other games of skill, with plenty
of contestants to make all interesting.
But the game In which perhaps most
enthusiasm was shown occurred soon
after the ladies opened the capacious
baskets and spread the bounteous
feast upon tablecloths laid upon the
grass. It was then that both young
and old "fell to" and demonstrated
their health and happiness In doing
justice to the wealth of a Methodist
mothers' picnic dinner.
All day the jollification lasted, and
at 5 o'clock those interested In base
ball repaired to the Chicago avenue
grounds and witnessed an interesting
game between nines "chosen up" from
among the seniors. Five Innings were
played and a score of 4 to 7 was the
result. The names of the players arc
not given because they don't care to
be pestered with offers to sign with
the league teams.
One of the largest crowds ever at
tendinir a Sunday school picnic was
out yesterday and it was pronounced
by all as the "best ever."
The Last Help.
We wish to submit to our readers a
letter showing how easily people could
get cured by selecting the proper
remedy. Mr. Ant. Skala, 517 11th

much obliged to you for the last help
which saved my life. I was very sick
and at last bought Trlner's American
Elixir of Bitter Wine, which Mr
Vlrant recommended tome, and am
enjoying perfect health now. When
all medicines will disappoint you, use
that Elixir and It will surely cure you
I wish to recommend it to all suffer

of the intestines It always helps; the

The Glenwood Tribune speaking of
the hall game between the Haskell ln-
lansand the local teams, says: "The
Haskell Indian ball nine played in
Glenwood last Saturday, but It turned
out that the pale faces camo out of the
carnage with the most scalps -the
Glenwood Grays defeating them ii to ft
with a portion ofan inning to spare.
It was the biggest crowd of the season.
The net receipts were $147.40, some
:w tickets being sold, (julte a num
ber, of course, came in free. The In
dians were given 7" per cent of the
gross receipts, making their share
$10X2."). The Indians shut out Platts-
mouth the day before 1 1 to 0. They
remained in Glenwood till Monday
when they went to Stanton on No. 4.
They were defeated by Stanton Utol."
Troubles of Our Own.
Not infrequently do we receive sug
gestlons from friends who have edged
tools they wish sharpened, and who
give it as their opinion that certain
persons or existing Institutions In
this town should be roundly roasted
When these friends arc asked to put
their Ideas upon paper and sign their
names, they are wont to demur, and
request that their names be not men
tioned In connection with the affair.
Some people seem to think that the

care to mix ours with those who should
be able to tight their own battles.
