by -'Brick'" who also had the cap and

who alspj assisted Mrs. J. II. Donnelly
in tlie supervision cf t!ie "cusine."
After indulging in the abundance of
eatables, the supper came to an end
and the dish washing was instituted.
Ir.to this act the gentlemen were in
veigled, but with some smiling coun
tenances and faithful work this un
expected task was soon disposed of, to
ne followed by music, and other forms
of amusement. The entertainment of
the evening culminated in a dress
parade the gentlemen appearing in
ladies capes, coats, veils and headgear,
while the ladies assumed the over
coats and caps belonging to the gentle
men. "Brick" was something lu
dricrous to behold in feminine ac
cessories, and it is safe to say that be
would have carried off the prize, if
there had .been any.
That the ladies of the auxiliary are
most excellent entertainers was fully
demonstrated, and with many regrets
that uch enjoyable affairs can not be
prolonged indetinitely, tlie partici

Enjoyable Affair at Dovey Home.
The members of the Five-Hundred
club were delightfully entertained last
evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
r.eorice 11. Dovey, by Miss Margaret.
Tlie affair was in the nature of a fare
well party to Miss Ida Pearlrnan. who
is soon to leave for her future home in
Omaha. At progressive five-hundred,
the evening hours were pleasantly
whiled away, and in this contest, Miss
Ruth Johnson won the honors.
An elegant live-course luncheon
served by Misses Elizabeth Falter and
Catherine Dovey followed this enter
taining game, and after enjoying a
very sociable time, the merry makers
expressed their appreciation of the
evening, and bade Miss Ida good night,
wishing her much happiness In the
city that has been selected for a home.
Those to take part In the occasion
were Misses Gretchen Donnelly, Emma

Entertained at Box Social.
The Social Workers, a society of
young women of the M. K. church,
met last evening at the home of Mrs.
J. D. McBride and entertained as
guests their husbands and gentlemen
friends. The principal entertainment
provided for the evening was a short
program, followed by a box social.
Miss Josephine Graves, a graduate of
the elocutionary department of the
Fremont Normal school, was present
and favored the gathering with sev
eral interesting readings, and selec
tions by E. II. Wescott and Miss Etha
Crabill also assisted in promoting the
enjoyable time that prevailed through
out the evening.
Between thirty and thirty-five young
people participated In the pleasant
social time and partoo.c or the tie- j

words 'Approved by the postmaster

The Fremont Herald pays the fol
lowing glowing tribute to the female
school teachers, which meets the ap
proval of the Journal in every word
"It is not difticult to observe a grow
ing tendency to praise the school
ma'am. Leading writers, preachers,
lecturers and thinkers speak more
kindly, more gently and more fre
quently of her than ever before.
"We shall scarcely undertake the
task of giving the reasons. It would
not be difficult, however.to give many,
offhand. Certain it is that every in
telligent father and mother who be
lieves in education know many good
reasons. Every person who loves to
see knowledge thrive and children ex
pand has many reasons.
"Every boy and girl now grown up
who recalls the many hours of patient
effort which some kind young woman
gave to instill in the childish mind
the higher and better thoughts under
stands. Indeed, it is only those who
have never been privileged to know by
actual experience or by observation
what a great work the teacher of the
present day is doiDg who fails to ap
preciate her fully.
"We hope the day will come that
more general attention will be directed
to the work of the schoolmistress, and
more appreciation shown her in a ma
terial as well as a social way. Pay her
well. There is no one employed in
this great country today who gives so
much that is good and takes so little
in return as the schoolma'am."

Injunction Suit Dismissed.
The injunction suit of John Schsap
pacasse vs. McMaken & Son, was dis
missed yesterday afternoon by the
plaintiff. At the time of filing the
case, a restraining order was granted
by Judge Travis to prevent the defend
ants from interfering with the plaint
iff in the harvest of ice from the same
slough, situated west of the main
channel of the Missouri river.
After securing the protection of the
court in order to cut from the same

pacasse, was unable to obtain sufficient
assistance to carry on the work, until
Conditions Have Been Serious.
Conditions have been so serious on
the Northern Pacific recently that
that road warned the Burlington to
send no cars on the through trains that
were not equipped with independent
heating plants, as well as with steam
heating pipe from the engine. The
liability of a train being buried in a
snow drift and the engine being una
ble to afford heat for the train, made
railroad men cautious about the kind
of equipment used in Northern Pacific

Burlingtnn to Reduce Time.
Tlie Omaha News says that while it
is not otlicially announced, it is re
ported that Burlington is making ar
rangements to have its fast mail train
from Chicago reach Omaha earlier in
the morning than it is now arriving
When the Rock Island secured the
local fast mail contract from the Bur
lington through the arrangement of
an Englewood connection, which made
it possible for the former road to reach
Omaha fifteen minutes earlier in the
day than the Burlington, Burlington
officials were compelled to consider an
earlier arrival in Omaha with the
eastern mail, fearing that they might
lose their mail contracts.
It is understood that the Burling
ton has arranged in Chicago to trans
fer eastern mail delivered by the New
York Central and save twenty min
utes' time. Possibly more time will
be made up by the arrangements now
Don't ;Be Sour.
Be cheerful; and if you can't be cheer
ful be as cheerful as you can. It is not
only justice to your fellow man, but it
is that and more to you. Pickles are
all right in their place, but they are
not good for steady diet. They Injure
the digestion. So does a sour face. It
isn't fit to wear anywhere except to a
funeral, and it certainly offers no great
comfort to the chief mourners there.
Your friends' faces are only mirrors
to reflect your own countenance. If
they look sour to you, a French plate
would do the same thing. If you find
a pleasant smile in every face you could
also find one in the gurgling water by

Child Labor in the Legislature.
The special correspondent of tlie Om
aha Bee from Lincoln, in speaking of
the child labor bill, says: "By passing
the Clarke child labor bill the house
this morning placed itself in a very
awkward position, and unless it sweeps
from the pay roll at once a number of
pages who, under the provisions of the
bill, should be in school, it becomes, in
spirit at least, a law breaker. Under
the terms of this bill, which it passed
almost unanimously, the house breaks
the law every day it keeps on the pay
roll a boy under 14 years of age; it re
pudiates its own action every day it
fails to keep posted in a conspicuous
place a certificate showing the names
of the boys under 10 years old it em
ploys: it sets an example for lawless
ness every time it compels a page un
der 14 to work more than forty-eight
hours each week: its members are sub
ject to tine, or will be should the bill
pass the senate and be signed by the
governor, every time they send a page
to the bill room for a bill after 7 o'clock
in the evening or ask him to work be
fore 7 in the morning. Unless the per
son in charge of the pages under V
keeps a record posted in a conspicuous
place showing how much time each
boy takes off for his meals and the
hours he works, every member of the
house is subject to arrest.
"Will you discharge the pages.as the
provisions of the child labor bill pro
vides?" was asked Speaker Nettleton.
"I don't know," answered the speak
er. "I don't know what to do. I voted
against the measure."
In Honor of Pearlmans.
At the home of the Pepperbergs a
pleasant gathering occurred yesterday
afternoon, in response to invitations
to spend the afternoon with Mrs.Pearl
man and daughter, Miss Ida. The af
ternoon was devoted to music and so
cial conversation, followed by sn ele
gant four course dinner, at which cov
ers were laid for ten. At the close of
the enjoyable afternoon, which was in-
terspered with expressions of regret
that the Pearlman's were to leave our
community and wishesthat they would
experience much happiness in Omaha,
the ladies departed for their several
Veterinary Bill Defeated.
The original veterinary bill, which
would have given all veterinarians who
had practiced the profession in the
state for ten years, the right to prac
tice and the right to the title of "Vet
erinary Surgeon," was defeated in the
legislature yesterday. This does not
stop here, as those wbo are cut out by
the defeat of the measure, expect to
carry the matter to the supreme court,
and expect to fight for his rights, if
they have to carry on the war for years.
