Doing Excellent Work
A representative of the Journal
visited the Nehawka consolidated
schools a few days ago and was
shown some of the work which the
members of the Manual training class
had been doing. In the first place
it was necessary to have some place
in which to work not already provid
ed, and with the aid of and under
superiutendency of W. E. Huston,
Buperintendent of schools, the mem
bers of the class set about the task
of erecting such a place, fitting the
interior with such devices as might
be needed in their work, including a
forge, work benches and chests or
cabinets for the tools. When complet
ed it was a most substantial struc
ture of one large room.
This is on the plan of an Improv
ed implement shed and work shop
combined for farm use, and here the
pupils have been building automatic
feeders for stock, a hay rack which
is up to date andscoop boards, all
practical and needed on the farm,
and things which the average farm
er, if he did not know how to make,
would have to buy. Step ladders are
also being turned out from this min
ature shop that would put to shame
those shipped in by manufacturing
concerns. The lads are also studying
animal husbandry, learning how to
take care of the sick stock on the
farm, as well as the best manner of
feeding and caring for live stock of
all kinds, and being fully informed as
to the best breeds for dairy and beef
Under direction of their instructor.
Miss Roberta James, the girls are
also studying the useful sciences as
well as the regular book course and
are learning to cook in a practical
way, not only how to make fudge,
but to prepare an appetizing meal,
cooking meat, pastry and vegetables,
as well as special training in bread
baking. In addition they are taking
up sewing, garment making, etc.
There are one hundred and forty
students in the school forty-four of
whom are enrolled in high school.
prefers warm baths in the future, es
pecially at this time of year, but de
clares that even a cold bath is bet
ter than none.
Surprised Their Neighbor
J. A. Smith and family, who have
lived north of Nehawka for a num
ber of years concluded they would
move to another farm a few miles
away this spring, and accordingly
the neighbors gathered last Tues
day evening and took the home of
this genial gentleman and his good
wife by storm. A most excellent
time was had by all, and Mr. Smith
and family enjoyed the occasion very
much and are proud of the friendship
and good wishes of their old neighbors.
Business Coming Back Again
C. F. Chase, employe of the Shel
don Manufacturing company, who has
been in the east for the past week,
returned home last Wednesday morn
ing. While away. Mr. Chase visited
Evansville, Indiana, Chicago and Des
Moines, Iowa, and met with many
people, taking advantage of the op
portunity of feeling the pulse of
business. He declares he found the
patient recovering and gaining in
Ftrength. but thinks it will be some
time before "Business" is entirely
Increasing Number of Orders
At the Sheldon Manufacturing
company's plant, the making of con
crete mixers has been resumer, and
the orders which have been received
during the past few weeks have al
ready cleaned up the reserve Stock
and bid fair to create an unprece
dented demand for these goods.
Mule Prices Holding
When anyone thinks the prices of
good farm animals have gone to the
dogs, they are mistaken. Paul Bryan,
a horse buyer, of Nebraska City, was
in Nehaka last Tuesday and purchas
ed some mules, getting a pair from
3. I. Sprague and one from Henry
Thiele, paying for the latter span
the sum of $025.00.
They Suffer Some Fears
It was reported list week that the
Odd Fellows were doing some work
and if you had seen the way some of
the members looked the following
day you would have thought they
were alro having some fun. It is
claimed that C. W. Christ weisser and
H. H. Stoll became so frightened and
ha'd to be led to a seat and told to
sit down until they had overcome
the excitement. And this all because
of the way a certain member was
dressed and the c,uiver in his voice.
Some one has slipped the information
that one of the following degrees is
even more solemn and grave than
this one, but boys, do not let them
fool you. If the others could stand
it, you can also.

Here is Another Sale Bill
When it comes to sale bills, the
one reproduced below is worth read
ing. Of course there is a difference
of some seventy .years in time then
and now, which little matter makes
it the more interesting:
