introduced and occupied an hour
and a quarter, giving one of the
most interesting and striking lec
tures ever heard in the city on a
similar occasion. The lecturer
used the blackboard to impress
his thoughts on his auditors. His
theme was the proper instruction
of the child mind, and was to
some extent a criticism on the old

ment of Thomas Slagel, deceased,
and T. Frank Wiles, one of the
attesting witnesses of the will,
was present to testify to the ex

drove in from the farm this after
noon nnd transacted business with
first in the row was invited to read
the first verse, the next boy to him
the second, and so on until the
verses were exhausted, which end
ec the lesson. None of the boys
understood a word of what they
had read and the teacher ap
parently knew as1 little as tho
class, for if he did, he kept his
knowledge to himself, as not a
word of explanation was given.
Sometimes the class might be
asked to commit a verse to mem
ory and asked to recite it, but the
instruction got no further. When
ho grew a little older he was ex
pected to know a lot. of theological
principles, which his father never
understood and which had been
handed down from his grand
father; here again he was wearing
his father's intellectual clothes.
On the board in opposition to
the words above stated, the lec
turer placed the words which he
would suggest in their stead, viz:
"Interest, Activity and Achieve
ment," and elaborated on the
thought of creating an interest In
the subjects taught, lead the child
to do' something, and he would de
velop or achieve.

The Matter in Controversey Was Rent Due Long Before the
Present Owner Purchased Plant and Who Was Released
From All Bills Due at Time of Purchase.
From Wednesday's Dally.
The case, entitled D. O. Dwyer
vs. the News-Herald Publishing
company, et, el., was before the
'court yesterday and required most
of the day of its consideration,
and the matter was finally ad
journed over until this morning
to allow the attorneys to reform
their pleadings and see if the
scope of tho inquiry could not be
narrowed so as to let E. O. May
field out of tho suit.
The matter in controversy ia
the rent due plaintiff in tho sum
of $1 00 for a portion of tho tinio
the News-Herald occupied his
building, ami the suit, was
originally begun for foreclosure
of an alleged lien derived by virtue
of a chattel mortgage, given by
the corporation to Mr. Dwyer lo
secure the rent. Afler the fore
closure suit was instituted the
owners and holders of the, ma
jority of stock in the News-Herald
Publishing company joined with
the corporal ion in making a bill
oT sale of the plant, lo E. M. Pol
lard, as well as sold him tho
slock of tho corporation, who in
turn made a bill of sale to E. O.
Mayflold, who assumed control of
Mr. Dwyer, in order to protect
his lien, and to have all persons
interested in the property before
the court, filed an amended peti
tion, making both Mr. Pollard and
Mr. Mayfleld parlies to tho litiga
tion, and prayed an injunction
against them, transferring of the
corporation slock, or the properly
on which he claimed a lien. Mr.
Pollard and Mr. Mayfleld filed
sepnrate answers, each selling up
a separate defense, Mr. Mayfleld
alleging that ho was an innocent

LIVELY RACE AFTER AN
Officers Finally Get Her After an
All-Night Search, and Bring
Her to Plattsmouth.
From Wednesday's Dally.
Yesterday about noon the coun

being detained by a parly of wom
en at Louisville and to hasten to
that village and bring her away.
Sheriff Quinton . and Deputy
Manspeaker boarded the Schuyler

evening, but found that Hie wom
an had escaped her guard and had
left the village, going toward the
counly seal. Deputy Manspeaker's
nolo, which he had left in Louis
ville Monday on account of bad
roads, was run out, and (he chase
was taken up. Two and a half
miles east of Louisville they pot
trace of tho insane woman, who
! was still coming loward Platls-
mouth, but that vvas the last seen
Tho officers came on to town
and the sheriff then look a team
and returned to Louisville, and
searched for the woman through
the night, and found her in the
rear of Mrs. Cutforth's residence,
where she had gained an entrance
by a back door during the night.
The woman had circled from the
Plait smouth road north to the
railway track and then returned
She accompanied tho sheriff to
Plaltsmoulh this morning, com
ing in on No. 4. Her husband and
brother, deorge Evert, came down
to the hearing. The woman has
been in Louisville about a month,
and it appears that Omaha has
been her home. She formerly
lived in Platlsmoulh.

I FOB REHT IS SETTLED
Dwyer's inortfuiMO, as his mortg
age for purchase money was ex
ecuted prior to that of Mr.
Dwyer's rent mortgage. When
the matter came- up for hearing
Tuesday on the merits of the
claim of Mr. Dwyer and Mr. May
field, who had succeeded to Mr.
Pollard's, rights Mr. Mayfleld,
tiring of the controversy, asked
I mho let out, ami' tho amount of
Mr. Dwyer's claim vyas tendered to
tho court by Mr. Pollard.
The matter was argued at some
length to the court, Mr. Mayfleld
maintaining that as the money to
pay Mr, Dwyer's claim, if he'
should succeed in establishing
his lien, being in court, there was
no reason for keeping him in
court; that the parties to the con
troversy could settle their dif
ferences without his presence,
Mr. Dwyer argued as strenu
ously that the money in court
would no doubt take the place of
the properly, bnt it would not take'
tho place of tho parlies, and that
the scope of tho litigation as de
signated by the pleadings would
no doubt demand Mr. Mayflold's
presence as ft party. And for
fear that the Investigation would
be limited If tho court should dis
miss the suit as to Mr. Mayfleld,
and the inquiry blocked, ho
thought the parties should remain
as they were.
Tt was finally determined lo al
low tho plaintiff to withdraw his
petition and to reform the issue,
leaving Mr. Maytleld out of the
controversy, and with this in view
tho matter was continued irhtil
this morning. There Is nothing
. ,n ,hr, C!lHC ,,ial WOuld cast any
reflection on the' present owner of
the News-Hernld, as he acquired
tho properly after I he con
troversy arose Nind by a deposit
of the money on the part of Mr.
Pollard, the paper will bo separat
ed from the litigation entirely.
