Pitched Battles Will be Fought in Five of the
Six Nebraska Districts, and Already
There are Several Candidates
in the First District.
The Lincoln Star, in speaking of the
contests in several congressional dis
tricts this year says:
Five pitched battles will be fought
for Congressional nominations in five
of the six Nebraska districts. The
contests will take place at the Repub
lican primary next September. Con
gressman Kinkaid, so far, has no op
position. All the other Congressmen
must fight and fight hard.
In the First district George E. Tobey
and "Ned" Brown will be rival candi
dates against Congressman Pollard.
Judge Jessen may also get into the
game. This fight will be animated and
extremely interesting before the trouble
They are After Hitchcock.
Republicans in the Second district
want to disposses Congressman Hitch
cock, a Democrat. The excitement
among the Republican factions will
be intense with the winner in doubt.
In the Third district the "progres
sive" have'taken the bit in their teeth
and bolted. Congressman Boyd be
longs to the anti-McCarthy faction. He
has been identified closely with a num
ber of the politicians. The "progres
sives" have demanded that State Sen
ator Wiltse, of Cedar county, enter
the contest. He is the author of the
clause in the anti-pass law under which
the surgeons and lawyers are being

Unthoughtedly, last evening, J. W. i
Bookmeyer stayed at home in the even- ;
ing, and as he had received a few cal- i
lers the night before he was not look- i
ing for any last evening. Thinking to j
take a bath before retiring, he had ;
made preparations for same and was ;
just entering the bathroom for that ;
purpose, when in stepped J. J. Svo-j
boda, jr., and James Skoumal, jr., j
with no suspicion of an announce-
ment, and for a certainly, once sur
prised the councilman. The evening
was devoted to music and games, of
which the festive "high five" held
sway, with refreshments, brought by
the guests made the occasion one very
enjoyable. A number of nice presents
were left, as tokens of the respects
and friendship for the aldetman who
had attained to the age of thirty-five.
Those who prepertrated this enjoy
able evening on an unsuspection and

Special Announcement Regarding the
National Pure Food and Drug Law
We are pleased to announce that Fo
ley's Honey and Tar for cough colds,
and lung troubles is not effected by the
National Pure Food and Drug iaw as it
contains no opiates or other harmful
drugs, and we recommend it as a safe
remedy for children and adults.
The editor of the Memphis (Tenn.)
Times writes: "In my opinion Foley's
Honey and Tar is the best remedy for j
coughs, colds and lung trouble, and to j
my own personal knowledge Foley's i
Honey and Tar has accomplished many j
permanent cures that have been little ;
short of marvelous." Refuse any but i

prosecuted for holding passes.- Union
labor leaders have bolted Boyd on ac
count of the Hammond controversy, it
is claimed, and they are all behind
Hinshaw in a Fifiht.
In the Fourth district the contest
has already attracted state-wide atten
tion. State Senator C. H. Aldrich has
announced his candidacy and has start
ed an energetic canvass. Aldrich led
the progressive forces in the Senate at
the last session of the legislature and
was regarded as the most radical mem
ber of that body.
Laboring men, it is claimed, are de
serting Hinshaw in large numbers. A
circular is being prepared, it 13 said.
The Hammond controversy looms up
again and will be an important factor
in the fight.
Congressman Norris has a similar
fight. At McCook and Hastings and
many other towns there are vigorous
opponents. He delivered a speech in
the House several weeks ago, ridicul
ing a bill which was designed to pre
vent lawyer-legislators from receiving
fees from corporations during their
term in office. His remarks have been
compiled and thousands of pamphlets
circulated in the Fifth district. E. B.
Perry, of Cambridge, and a number of
others probably will enter the race.
In the Sixth district Congressman
Kinkaid is without opposition so far.

A. A. Wetencamp was in the city
last evening and reports his hand as in
a much better condition, the effected
tendency having been entirely over

scratch received while butchering.- But
a short time after the finger became
very sore, and had to be lanced, in
order to obtain relief. The case of Mr,
Mason, which had come from the like
caused, added to the concern of Mr,
Wettencamp. At the present time in
jured member is progressing nicely and
promises to soon be entirely well again.

Not Poor Pay for the Best Teachers, But Good
Pay for Good Teachers and the Best Pay
for the Best Teachers
It has been well said that the schools
of Nebraska will never be better than
the teachers make them. This is the
argument that justifies the normal
school to train teachers and to give
them the "high ideals" demanded for
It is also well to demand sufficient
salaries for teachers all over the state.
The demand should be renewed from
time to time until the rule is not poor
pay for the best teachers, but good pay
for the best.
Still it is simple justice to recognize
that we have already, among teachers
who are poorly paid, ideals as high as
will ever existed in or outof Nebraska.
They exist and operate regardless of
salary. They are not to be bought with
money. They appear in the lives and
the work of men and women to whom
teaching is a mission and not a mere
means of livelihood. Often they rise
superior to the worst disadvantages in
giving the best results.
It is so in the present, and if it had
not been so in the past we would r.ct
know now the value of "ideals" in
working out the greatness of a people.
From the time of the first log school
houses in the wildness it was so. The
American of the type they educated
came from them with an ideal he realiz
ed by work for the country as well as
for himself which appears now in a
hundred lines of increasing greatness
Raised W. C. Ramsey and
Then With Many Speeches
Partook of the Good
Things to Eat.
Last evening at the meeting of the
Masonic order in the city. W. C. Ram
sey was raised to third degree, and af
ter the fun in that direction had been
concluded, something of a different
nature was found on the program. A
number of addresses were made. One
by A. L. Tidd, "The Mason as a Citiz
en," in which he showed that the obli
gations which one had to take and live
up to be a Mason in spirit and in truth,
one has to be a better citizen than
would otherwise be required; therefore,
the living, according to the teachings
of the Masonic fraternity, is in accord
auce with good citizenship.
Rev. Salsbury, followed with an ad
dress "The Mason and Christianity,"
showing that the teachings of both are
along the same lines, that both require
the belief in a Supreme Being, and the
observance of good and wholesome
laws, the practice of which is bound to
elevate human character, and bring one
nearer to his Creator, the author of his
being, and as such, more fraternal to his
fellowman. To be a good Mason, one
would necessarily be a better christian,
while, were he a member of the lodge, '
to be a christian would make him a
J. C. Petersen followed, with "The I
Lodge as a Fraternity," in which he
had to say, that in the keeping of the
people together so that the interest of
one was the interest of all, as" taught
in the order, and as we came from the
hand of a common parent, the Maker of
the Universe we are the children of one
Father, and are therefore brothers, and
are bound by the relationship we sus
tain to the one from whom we receive
every good and perfect thing, to cherish
as brothers our fellowman. A. E.
Gass, with his "Sunshine of Masonry"
showed the cheerful side of Masonry,
as the man with the assurance which
the teachings of the order set forth
must see the good resulting in the fut
ure for the efforts toward the right,
and as inevitable as the day follows the
night, know that the future has good in
store, for every one, and that it is his;
just in proportion as he shall make an
effort to obtain it. That Masonry, like
the Sun, shines forth in the darkest
places, making them light on every
Mason's face, and in their actions one
should see good cheer hope and encour
agement. Bro. Ringo, of the Masonic
Home, addressed the meeting, on the
good of the order and make a number
of very beautiful applications of the
subject in hand. The tables around
which this fraternal order sat, mean
while were loaded with everything
for Nebraska and for every state in the
Such types as products of American
education are not out of datee and they
are never likely to become so. Many
of the Americans who did the best work
of the Nineteenth Century began their
own usefulness as school teachers. In
fact, the biography of nearly every
American of that century who became
greatly prominent in any line of service
to the public is apt to explain that he
fitted himself for his work by beginning
it as a teacher. This is especially true
in Nebraska history, in the history of
other states of the west and south.
But always the American ideal of edu
cation worked out through typical
Americans into results without which
the results of the present and future
would be impossible.
We will not lose the ideal teacher or
the American type in the future because
of low salaries or high salaries. Wo
can buy everything perhaps except
self-sacrificing disinterestedness. The
teacher who has thi? ideal when it ap
pears through results of the teacher's
own higher intelligence, given, not sold,
to the entire community.
There has not yet been in history a
state or a community in which those
who supply the best "f or kI" the mind
can demand were paid on the basis of
value for value. That basis applies to
breads tuffs and provisions, but teachers
who are really ideal know that they can
never expect adequate payment, for the
benefits beyond price their work makes
i possible for the future they create out
! of the present.
which could be suggested to appease
the hunger or suggest a delicate ap
petite. The occasion, was one of good
fellowship, and enjoyed by the four
score op people present.

Will Have Eye Operated Upon
Mrs. James Chalfant was a passen
ger to Omaha this afternoon where she
will have an operation performed upon
eye, hoping that the same will be
come entirely cured. The trouble is
from an injury received some years
since, causing a growth with a tendency
to absorb the tissues of the globe of the
eye and is called sarcona. Mrs. Chal
fant will have to undergo an operation
for its removal. She has been receiv
ing treatment for some time by use of
a X Ray, but with no effect, and the
operation is the last resort.
Boy Who Fell Into the Well.
Walter McNeilly, who fell into the
well while hunting rabbits, now re
members some of the occurrences
relative to the matter. He says he had
killed two rabbits and had run another
one into a brush pile. Laying his gun
down he jumped on the brush in an
effort to scare the rabbit out, when he
went on through into the well, carrying
a portion of the brush with him. He
knew nothir.g for some time, and when
removed by the rescuers, three rabbits
were found, where he had only killed
two, supposedly the third one having
run into the brush pile and was killed
when it fell into the well, or by Walter
falling upon it.
