The School Life of Children Should
Interest Parents and Teacher.
The following suggestions from
the Omaha News hits the right place,
and if the advice is followed it will
prove of great benefit to teachers,
parents and pupils:
School days are here.
Are your children glad to begin
If not, do you know the reason?
Do you take the interest you should
in their progress at school? Have
you made the acquaintance of their
teacher? Do you visit school and
make yourself familiar with what
goes on there? Do you properly ap
preciate credits your children may
have obtarned? Do you show a regret
demerits and Inquire from both
the child and the teacher the reason
Parents should remember that the
responsibility for the education of
their children does not lie wholly
with the teacher. A parent has a re
sponsibility for a child that cannot
rightfully be transferred to any one
else. Too often the chief part of the
care for the children falls upon thy
mother, and sometimes the mother
throws a good part of her burden on
the teacher. No child can be prop
erly brought up in this way.
When the business of the father
will not allow him to visit the school
the mother should make it her busi
ness to keep him informed concern
ing his children's progress. And he
should have an Interest in the mat-
Questions pertaining to school life
of the children should be talked over
with the teacher. This will aid both
teacher and parents to a better un
derstanding of what is best for the
child. While every little foolish
complaint of a child need not be
taken seriously,' it is well to know
when there is a real reason to be
concerned. It is not well to depend
entirely on a child's version of af
fairs, as its Judgment is immature,
and it may knowingly or unconscious
ly misrepresent the facts. No just
Judgment can be given without hear
ing at least two sides of a story.
Inculcate in your child a respect
for their teachers and a pride in
properly and honorably performing
their tasks. Do not allow them to
think it "smart" to "trick" the teach
ers or to "get the best" of them, or
in; any way cause them needkss
trouble. The public school is main
talned at great cost and offers freely
that which Is very much to the ad
vantage of every one to possess. Do
not let the share of its benefits that
your children should have go to
waste for lack of attention on your
Telephone on Main Line.
More than a week ago the Bur
lington finished equipping its main
line, west of Lincoln to Hastings,
with telephones for dispatching. Now
every main line train on the Lincoln
division of the Burlington is dis
patched by telephone. On the Wy
more division telephones have been
placed on the line between Wymore
and Red Cloud. Gradually the sys
tem of telephone dispatching is be
ing extended and it Is predicted that
within a year every main line train
on the Burlington will be moved by
telephone orders. The extension is
also taking in some of the branches,
and in time It is said the company
will have displaced its telegraph sys
tem and substituted the'phone." The
use of wires for telephone dispatch
ing and message work does not de
stroy their value for telegraphic
work. Many wires used for tele
phoning also carry at the same time
telegraph service, without Interfe
ring In the least with the telephon

A special from Lincoln under date
of September 25, says: "United
States Attorney A. W. Lane has pre
pared papers for filling in federal
court to attack the validity of the
naturalization papers of sixteen Ne
braskans. Owing to irregularities in
which the papers were served they
are said to be no good. Some of
them are said to have been illegally
naturalized before they were in this
country five years, others are charg
ed with having failed to declare their
Intention of becoming citizens ' al
though they were over eighteen years
of age when they arrived in this
country, and 7et others are said to
have papers which were witnessed
by other ' foreigners who were not

Sells Apple Crop.
Frank Moore, residing ten miles
south of this city, disposed of his
fine crop of apples for the heat sum

acres in orchard, and the young
trees had a very good crop of fruit
this year. A man from the south
was the purchaser, and he is barrel
Ing the apples in the orchard and
shipping from Murray.
Sheldon May I a.
The Lincoln correspondent of the
Omaha World-Herald Bays: "If it ap
pears that the reactionary element
In the Republican party threatens to
dominate affairs next year, George
L. Sheldon will again be a candidate
for governor," is the opinion of
Lincoln man who Is not new to the
game of politics.' While not express
ing his views about the condition
that would probably exist a year
hence, It is everywhere apparent
that the reactionaries who controlled
the last state convention will make
their grip stronger within the next
year if they possibly can. This con
dition recognized it is taken that
Sheldon will be a candidate. With
out reference to this quotation, 0. R
Thompson, state senator from Wis
ner, said while in Lincoln this week
that he believed Sheldon could se
cure the nomination if he sought it
'Sheldon has a great many friends
out over the state and these men
would help him. Moreover, by cus
torn he has certain rights to a renom
ination which, I presure, his friends
would press warmly."
The Itcvival Service.
The revival In the tent was at

deeply Interested crowd. Evangelist
Wilhlte's sermon on the theme, "The

looking on the sunny side of things
and for living above the shadows

THE HOME OF SATISFACTION
TION TO PASTOR
Rov. J. E. Daumcartnor Sovoro
Connoction With Church.
Last Sunday, September 26, at the
Lutheran church, north of Murdock,
occurred a most memorable farewell
reception, which . will always be a
pleasant and cheering page of life's
book. Owing to continued ill health
the beloved pastor, Rev. J. E. Baum-
gartner, was unable longer to min
ister to his congregation in the able
manner he desired, and as he also
wished to leave his charge in splen
did condition, . he thought it best to
resign his pastorate at this time,
while the church was prospering and
he still retained his mental faculties.
A meeting of the church members
was held Sunday afternoon, at which
time Rev. Meiers of Araphoe, Neb.,
was tendered a call to fill the va
cancy caused by Rev. Baumgartner's
resignation. Mr. Meiers was strong
ly recommended by those present,
who knew of his ability, and the call
was made by a unanimous vote and
should he decide to accept of this
call we bid him a hearty welcome.
After the business of the day was dis
posed of Rev. Heartman made a line
address to the congregation present,
in which he went over the record of
the past seventeen years, during
which time Rev. Baumgartner was
pastor. Certainly the Lord has dealt
kindly with the people of the con
gregation, as they hare prospered to
every way beyond what was their
due. The ladies of the church Beit
very cordially invited all present to
partake of refreshments, which, had
been prepared, and it was a ml
pleasure to drop a coin into the bas
ket which was passed, to show oar
appreciation of the good work of tho
retiring minister, and which was only
a slight testimonial of the love b4
affection in which he was held by his)
admiring flock. Seventeen rears ago
Rev. Baumgartner took up the local
church work, coming here from Bat
falo county, and during this period
of time he has succeeded in building1
up a very strong congregation, which
worships in a beautiful church, sur
rounded by . groves, vineyards and
orchards. In this beauty spot aro
also located the parsonage, school

Open Season for Squirrels.
The open season for squirrels to
Nebraska opens October 1 and lasts
two months. Dan Gellus, deputy

marks to make about the etlquetto

but a .22 calibre rifle, and. that on
who uses a shotgun is to be classed
as a game hog and a pot hunter. The
law allows one to kill ten squirrels
In one day, if he can get on the right
side of the tree, and allows one to
have twenty squirrels In his posses
sion at one time. The open season
was decreed by the last legislature
