The evening was spent in games
and mtiMO of till kinds that enter
tained the party until a late hour,
when they all returned home feel
ing that it had boon an event that

Announcement is made from Lin

years of the regime of H. J. Helps as
superintendent of tho shops here.
The message received in Lincoln
from the wife of Mr. Kates at Wash
ington. D. C, did not give the par
ticulars of the accident and will be
learned of with the greatest of re
grets by the old friends here.

'Annual Event Beinir Carried on by
Teachers in the iCty Schools
Result Important.
The -annual school census of the
city is now beii,; taken and is un
d r the direction of Misses Clara
Weyrich. F.stclle llaird and 1'earle
Staats. The public should give all
possible information to the census
takers when they visit the homes as
ti;' matter i; one of the .greatest
importance to the community in se
curing their ju-t apportionment of
the slate funds for :-ohool pur
poses. The stale gives $l..".(i for each
person of school age in the district
to assist in carrying on tho schools
and the failure to give tho names
of persons of school ago to the cen
sus takers means that the district has
lost that much which must be made
up in the taxes of the district itself,
so that the giving of al! names of
persons of school age is a very im
portant matter to the taxpayers.
It should bo remembered that
every person missed in the census is
money out of the pockeis of the tax
payers so he prepared to give the
census takers full and complete in
fo! mat ion of all persons between
' and
te::tv-ono years of age i:i
school district.
A great Nuany people have shown
tendency to refuse the information
asked for or have neglected to list
all of iheir family of school age and
as a result the district is out money
that if would otherwise receive.
