A Serious Accident.
Mrs. T. W. Yallery, living three
miles northwest of Murray, received a
wound In the right wrist which came
very near proving fatal She with
her daughter, Mrs. Wade Porter, were
carrying some fruit Jars out of the
cellar, when one broke, the glass cut
ting two ugly wounds near a large ar
tery, severing a small artery which
caused profuse hemorbage. Over the
'phone Mrs. Porter received Instruc
tions from the physician how to atop
the bleeding, which proved successful
and other than the pain Mrs. Vallery
is comfortable.
W. M' Youni, Sr., Injured. ;
Our old friend, F. M. Young, sr.,
met with quite a serious accident last
Tuesday, In which he was very fortu
nate that it did not result in the loss
of his life. The old gentleman was en
gaged In gathering apples at his home,
east of town, and was standing in the
spring seat of his wagon, picking the
fruit from the lower boughs, when the
team started to move out from under
him and he was thrown to the back
end of the wagon and when another
lunge wa3 made by the team he was
thrown to the ground with such force
as to bruise him up considerable, but
no bones were broken. At this time
he is getting along nicely and nothing
serious will result.

The bride is one of the most highly
respected young ladies of that county,

bride s roses and ,' orange blossoms,
while the groom wore the conven
tional black, and is one of the most
highly respected young men and of
good character. He is the son of Mr.

half section of land in the same county
In which Uncle Peter Kell recently In

Albert, like most of the Cass county
farmers who have visited that section,
agree that It Is the coming country,
and have wisely made their invest

reasonable price. Mr. Albert enjoyed
the trip very much.

Items Worthy of Perusal by Parent.Teach
er, Pupil anJ Boari cf Directors.
Principal J. A. Dimmlck has mailed
a most excellent circular letter to the
teachers of his Reading Circle section
In which he urges them to do well the
work as outlined. We are confident
the record of Section 11 w ill be an ex
cellent one.
We made an excellent find last sum
mer In the person of Miss Catherine
Boyle, who has charge of district 33,
or the Laughlln school. She Is doing
exceptionally good work. Miss Boyle
taught last year in the western part
of the state.
Frank Crabtree, district 60, writes
us that bis school board is thoroughly
alive to the best Interests of the
school and that he is not handicapped
on account of lack of supplies as every
thing needful is furnished cheerfully
and promptly.
The Piattsmouth division of the
Reading Circle held its first meeting
of the year last Saturday. The recita
tion method proved very successful as
all the teachers present had the work
prepared and received much benefit
from the discussions.
Miss Daisy Fowler, intermediate
teacher at Union, gave up her forty
pupils "to take charge of one." She
will be succeeded by Miss Jennie
Craig, who takes charge of the school
next Monday.
Tractlcally all of the local managers
are calling attention to the sectional
meetings of the ReadingClrcle through
their local papers. If thej Reading
Circle work is not a success this year
it certainly will not be their fault.
The next regular examination for
teachers' certificates will be held Fri
day and Saturday, October 1'.) and 20.
The regular examination program will
be adhered to, as that will accommo
date the greatest number of teachers.
The offlce will be open from 7:30 a.m.
until .":30 p. m. 011 those two clays.
The most noticeable feature in the
matter of better school conditions this
fall is the improvements that have
been made in the school houses. Be
low is given a few of the many Im
provements found in our rounds this
fall: District !), Falrvlew, woodwork
painted and walls and ceiling calci
mined; district 14, Buck school, painted
inside and out, walls and ceiling
painted; Avoca town school, newly pa
pered throughout; district 23, Eight
Mile Grove, school house thoroughly
renovated, new outbuildings; district
27, Cottonwood school, re-plastered;
district 33, Laughlln school, papered,
woodwork painted and new desk pro
vided for teacher; district 74, Klue
school, papered and woodwork painted;
district 75, Union school, new out
buildings; district 81, Maple Grove,
room papered. Next month other
districts will be mentioned." Better
surroundings seems to be the watch
word of directors this year. It pays
to have a pleasant school room. Let
the good work go on.
Louise MIckle, district 50, has a
young lady nineteen years of age in at
tendance and a married lady twenty
six. Neither of these pupils had a
chance to secure an education in our
schools when younger, and It cer
tainly speaks well for both pupils and
teacher to see them In school and In
the grade best suited to their needs.
The Idea that people ever get too old
to learn is a mistaken one.
Miss Pearl Johnson, district 72, and
students attended the Nebawka fair.
They marched to the grounds to the
music of a drum, played by one of the
students, and preceded by a large
school banner. They had a good, old
fashioned picnic dinner along with
them that was thoroughly enjoyed by
the students, many of the patrons and
the county superintendent.
The attention of the public Is called
to the general teachers' meeting to be
held at Weeping Water Saturday, No
vember 24. An excellent program has
been prepared and will be published
later. Some subjects of general Inter
est will be discussed by our teachers
and, In addition to this, Superinten
dent McBrlen will give an address in
the afternoon. We want many patrons
and school officers to be present. Plan
to come, and if you do not enjoy the
day we will not ask you to attend an
other. The school exhibit at the Nchawka
fair was ono of the drawing cards on
the grounds. It was viewed by a largo
crowd of visitors, and was admired by
nil who viewed It. The woik was ex
cellent and' was nicely arranged for
display by Misses Pollard, Murdock
and Moon. Only a few of the schools
were represented, and yet the exhibit
w as as large as could w ell be accommo
dated as each school that sent work
