there were gathered the I. K. 0. j
society ard by invitation, the teachers
of the public schools and th'i school
board with their wives. In all there
were some seventy-five present, and the
evening's program was not one pre
pared, but. was very informal and one
where sociability and good cheer reigned
supreme. Social conversation was in
dulged in, interspersed with music, both
vocal and instrumental, of which those
present took part. Refreshments were
served, and the dining room was beauti
fully and artistically decorated with
chyrsanthemums, the large dining table
and smaller ones providing for the seat

the evening was spent in a most delight

Accidenally Shoots Friend.
The careless handling of a revolver
in the boarding house of the National
Stone quarries east of town last Satur
day resulted in the death of Solomon
Kannia, a Polander. Another Polander
was examining a 32-caliber revolver and
Kannia was sitting across the room
with elbows on his knees reading a
newspaper when the gun was accident
ally discharged, the ball striking the
unfortunate man fairly on the top of
the head. Local physicians probed for
the ball, but could not locate it and
Kannia was taken to an Omaha hospital,
where he died. The young man who
did the shooting was almost crazed with
grief, close watch was required to pre
vent him from ending his life by jump
ing into the river. Louisville Courier.
New Car Tracer.
The Lincoln Journal says that the
Burlington has named a new car ac
counting official. H. B. Ware has been
given a desk in the chief dispatcher's
office, and it is said his dnties will be to
increase the amount of service that is
secured from each car that reaches the
Lincoln division. Mr. Ware has had
long experience in car service, having
spent more than twenty years in the
service of the company in this staie.
New Pure Food and Drug Law.
We are pleased to announce that
Foley's Honey and Tar for coughs,
colds and lung troubles is not affected
by the national pure food and drug
law as it contains no opiates or other
harmful drugs, and we recommend it as
a safe remedy for children and adults.

That Night School.
We have touched upon the question
of night schools a few times through
these columns. The necessity of an
institution of this kind is evident, many
other places have established night
schools, Beatrice, Fremont, Omaha and
other places having opened schools re
cently. A meeting will be called in a
short time, at which it will be expected
that all who are interested, from what
ever cause will be present, whether
the standpoint of a teacher, a student
or interested in some other way. It is
desired that an expression be made of
the wishes of all who expect to attend,
as to what they shall expect to study,
that arrangements may be made accor
dingly. It is not expected that the
school will more than pay its way. But
if it can be made to do that much, good
will be done. A meeting will be ar
ranged for some day next week and
notice will be given through these
columns as to "when and where same
will be held. Those who wish to be
come students are desired to be present.
It depends much on what is desired as
to what will be done.
Grandma McKinney Very Sick.
Mrs. Andrew McKinney is very sick
and with but little hopes of her recovery
on account of her advanced age, she be
ing 76 years of age. Her husband, An
drew McKinney and children are giv
ing every attention that is possible to
extend. Mrs. Thomas McKinney is al
so sick at the same place, which adds
to the care; while James McKinney is
suffering from a hurt he received on one
of his ankles, which almost makes him
a cripple. Taking it all in all, they are
having,- it seems, a little more than
their share of trouble at the present
Superintendent McBnen In
structs County Clerks.
Steps have been taken by State Su
perintendent McBrien, throngh a cir
cular letter to all county clerks in the
state, to guard against the possibility
of anyone being installed as superin
tendent of schools in any county with
out having the qualifications for that
office prescribed by Nebraska statute.
Under the law no one can hold the office
without being in possession of a first
grade teachers' certificate, except in
half a dozen of the smallest counties,
where a second grade certificate -passes
Following is the letter addressed to
county clerks from the state superin
"On the enclosed postal card please
give me the information asked for in
accordance with section 1, subdivision 7,
school laws of Nebraska for 1897, which
reads as follows:
"No person shall be eligible to the
office of county superintendent who
does not hold at least a first grade
county certificate issued in this state
and in force at time of his election. It
shall be the duty of the county clerk to
notify the state superintendent of the
election of the county suderintendent at
the time said election is ascertained.
The provisions of this act, so far as the
same relate to the certificates of county
superintendents', shall not apply to
counties having less than 1,000 inhabi
tants. "It will be your duty, therefore, as
an officer whose sworn duty it is to en
force the law without fear or favor, to
require the successful candidate for the
office of county superintendent in your
respective counties to produce evidence
of his or her legal right to said office,
before granting to suchperson a certifi

see the fire, which was located in the
cellar of Dr. T. I. Livingston's new
home, which has just been finished and
but shortly occupied by them as a resi
dence. The origin of the fire is supposed to
have been in the room occupied by the
furnace in the basement. When the
department arrived on the scene dense
volumes of smoke was rolling up out of
the cellar, which was filled, and in an
incredable short space of time the en

place the house in condition as good as
before will not cost as much as what in

worked like Trojans in their endeavors
to quench the fire. It is evident that
the irrepressive small boy should be
kept out of the way in a case like the
one in question.
Another Case of Smallpox
James Gruber has been having his
smallpox trouble since our report
of his wife's case last week
and although it was hoped that he would
escape it, it was no surprise that he has
it, considering the fact that he was so
directly exposed. He was quite sick
for two days but has since been getting
along very well. The report that others
have the disease at present is correct,
and from the best imformation we can
obtain it seems probable that the dis
ease will be confined to those two cases
yet we suggest that no negligence is
justifiable at this time. The school and
meetings have been going on as usual
since last week, yet we doubt the wis
dom of taking such chances until it is
absolutely certain that there is no
further danger. Union Ledger.

Biliousness and Constipation.
For years I was troubled with bilious
ness and constipation, which made life
miserable for me. My appetite failed
me. I lost my usual force and vitality.
Pepsin preparations and cathartics only
made matters worse. I do not know
where I should have been today had I
not tried Chamberlain's Stomach and

At the Home of A. A. Randall, the
New Methodist Minister.
Friday evening the postponed meeting
of the Epworth League was held at the
i narsonacre of the new minister to cele
brate the Hallowe'en festivities, which
has become an annual feature of the
society. There were in attendance at
the meeting something over one hun
dred members of the league and friends
thereof. The decorations were of the
Hallowe'en order; the lights prepared
were made of boxes, trimmed in yellow
and containing a candle each, and with
the yellow cloth over the openings,
gave a weird yellow light that was sug
gestive of something supernatural.
While the decorations were of a nature
to suggest something uncanny and
sepulchral, the spirits of the young
people who attended were exactly the
opposite, for a much merrier crowd of
people have failed to gather in these
parts for some time. The program of
the evening consisted of the many
mirthful and enlivening games played
at this date.
One special teature which the inge
nuity of the pastor furnished for the
amusement and delectation of the as
sembled guests, was what some were
pleased to call the " Katzen jammer
Palace," but what the pastor called the
"Initiation into the Royal Order of
Hallowe'eners," and was situated in
the basement, where the exercises were
conducted by a dim, flickering ghostly
light. Having constructed the passage
way so only one couple pass at a time,
he had provised a stumbling arrange
ment, and in falling one thought he
was going to the depth of some un
known place, when he was caught on a
friendly pile of straw, which prevented
any harm. After getting up and right
ing oneself, he began the ascent to the
upper portion of the building, only to
encounter a slippery plank that they
could not walk, except they caught on
the sides of the passage-way. This
required a good deal of skill to climb,
but when once through they were full
members of the order. All enjoyed the
occasion to the limit and departing pro

The Kind You Have
Find More Stolen Goods.
The Lincoln Sunday Journal says:
"Detective Malone of the Burlington's
special service has been having trouble
with the Italians employed in construc
tion work again. He has been investi
gating their possessions and has found
napkins from Burlington dining cars,
property from sleeping cars and other
Burlington belongings in their posses
sion. At Ashland a few days ago he
found in the possession of some Italians
some silverware, including a big silver
soup ladle, branded with the mark of
the Palmer house, Chicago. Mr. Ma
lone has had a great many reports of
thieving to run down of late, and the
greater part of this trouble to his de
partment he lays to the laborers brought
here for railroad work. Most of these
laborers are foreigners unable to speak
the Fnglish language."

First Chester White Hog Sale.
Dan Phillips returned Wednesday
from Hastings where he attended the
first Chester White hog sale ever held
in the state. There were fifty-four
head sold, the average being close to
$40. Mr. Phelps purchased a grandson
of Jackson Chief, the greatest white
hog ever raised. He did not state the
price paid, but it is safe to say that the
price was a long one, as Dan never
allows a few dollars to stand in his way
when it comes to improving his herd.
Mr. Phelps has been improving white
hogs for several years, but has disiosed
of his surplus at private sale, and now
has about arrived at the conclusion to
hold a public sale next season. Ixuis
