ALL SHOULD ASSIST IN
BRINGING THE K. S.
TOURNAMENT HERE
From Tuesday's Daily.
'ahis city has every prospect of act
ing: as hosts for the state tournament
of the Katholitky Sokol society, which
will hold their biennial meeting this
year, as the officers in charge of the
arrangements are very anxious to
bring the tournament to this city,
where it will be near to the section of
the state where a neater part of the
Bohemian population is located. The
South Omaha society, which had ex
pected to hold the tournament, is not
in a position to care for the affair as
it should he, as their new hall will not
be completed in time for the tourna
ment, which will be on Saturday,
Sunday and Monday, September 4.
and C.
This meeting would bring a large
number here from Omaha, South
Omaha and other towns in the state
with a large Bohemian population, for
the three days' meetings, and should
be secured if possible. The citizens
in general should encourage the local
society in their handling of the
tournament if it is brought here and
assist in entertaining the visitors. The
K. S. society here has just recently
had a fine addition made to their hall
that will give them plenty of room
and allow the tournament to be
handled in proper shape. They also
have a very spacious ground sur
rounding their hall, and here could be
staged the different athletic events of
the tournament.

DENT OF BIBLE GLASS
From Tuesdays Dai:y.
At the meeting of the Young Men's
Bible class of the Methodist church
Sunday morning the members of the
class were notified by their president,
Floyd Stone, that it would be neces
sary for him to resign the office, as
his duties and school work would not
allow him to carry on the duties as
they should be, and for this reason he
asked that someone else be selected
for the position. The members of the
class were very reluctant to accept
the resignation, but Mr. Stone was in
sistent and finally Lester Dalton was
eleeled to the position of president to
look after the work of the executive
department of the class.

ONE HUNDRED DOL

were taken up Saturday evening for
"lifting" a watch from John Mc
Daniels, were arraigned in the count y
court before Judge Beeson on a com
plaint charging them with petty lar
ceny, and in answer entered a plea of
guilty to the charge preferred against
them. After a recital of the crime
with which the men were charged, the
court decided that it would bo neces
sary to impose a line of ?10n and costs
each on the two men. and on tlu ir
failure to produce the necessary
funds the men were remanded to jail
to serve out their sentence or until
the fine is paid. One of the men, in
his broken dia'.ect, stated that they
thought possib'y some of their coi;:i
trymer.t might be able to raise the
necessary amount to relea-e them,
but until that is done they will
languish in tin? county jail anil no
given an opportunity of meditating
over their wrong-doing. The wai-.-h
was later returned to the owner, who
was present in court and identified
the men as the same two who had ac
costed him on Saturday just before he
discovered the loss of the watch.

COURSES TO FIT
STATE SCHOOLS
VERY PROPER
State Superintendent Thomas Out
lines Needs of the State Schools
Before Teachers.
From Wednesday's I"ally.
"Our courses study must fit Xe
biaska and not New York City." said
A. O. Thomas, state superintendent of
public instruction in an address at the
school of superintendents at the Tem
ple theater Tuesday at Lincoln. "We
must not try to teach the things
taught in New York City, but rather
the things that ought to be taught
right here in Nebraska. Let us prune
the non-essentials out of our currieu
lums. "Formerly we considered it enough
to study geometry and to understand
the propositions. Now we begin to
see that it is necessary to be able to
ue things. The multk'plication table
ir, the only thing in oar educational
system that is automatic. We can't
teach everything in the curriculum
and teach it well. Too many of our
children can't work out a problem un
loss it is in a book. There are certain
things that we must teach until the
students know th-:m and can apply
them. Right here let me say that the
fellow who thinks he known s some
thing usually does. Too many think
thev don't know anything and the
truth is that a good share of them
don't.
"Give the bov credit for milking the
cow scientifically. But we first mus
have the teachers who know the gooi
points about the cow. The boy mus
be educated so that he will go into the
barn with a score-card in his hand

whether or not the cow is making
money."
Mr. Thomas told of his efforts to
have the rural schools consolidate
and prophesied that a much higher

throughout the .-tat.'.

h'M AT PENDER NOT THE
FORGER WANTED HERE
From Wednesday's Dally.
Last evening Sheriff Quinton re
turned from Pender, where he was
called to look into the identity of one
of the men in jail there who was
thought might be the man desired
here for the passing of worthless
checks, bit the investigation failed to
produce the desired effect, as the man
there was not the mysterious Jensen
who had succeeded in getting away
with the money here. It is thought
that the man has made his way into
one of the large cities where he would
have a better chance of keeping out
out of sight of the officers of the law
than in the smaller towns, but de
scriptions of him have been sent out
in hopes of securing him and bringing
him back to this city to receive
punishment for his crime.

he was struck by a large concrete
pillar which was dislodged from the
porch at the residence" of II. D.
Travis, and since that time has not
been entirely free from the effects of
the injury sustained at that time, and
it was thought best to have it looked
after before developing more
seriously.
