We are in receipt of the Superintend
ent's announcement of the coming teach
ersjnstitute to to held in the courthouse
at tarrison, commencing June 18, and
ending June, 28. This is a move in the
right direction and one that will be a
benedt to the teachers of Sioux county
if they properly apply themselves to the
work w hich we doubt not they will.
The announcement also states that
Prof. A. J. Babcock will deliver a lect
ure to the teachers on the evening of the

knowledge lies with the teachers and
they should deliver the lecture and al
low Babcock to be the audience. He
could learn many things from the teach

tirely new and strange to him.

Secretary Noble has rendered a decis
ion regarding enteries under the timber
culture act and places a different con
struction upon the law to the one hith
erto held. He says: "'No arbitrary
rule can be established for the govern
ment of every case. It should be the
desire of the department to ascertain
what the intent and purpose of congress
was in the passage of the act. Clearly
it was to encourage the artificial growth
of timber in a prairie country. It is
within the experience of all minds that
in all mankind living regions, that in
drains and ravines a few scattering trees
are to be found, and it would not seem
that congress intended to exclude every
tract of that kind from the timber cult
ure act. It stands to reason that it was
not the purpose to deprive the occupants
of the vast prairies of the west of the
benefits of the act if there happened to be
a single tree upon the section. I take it
that words prairie land, or land devoid
of timder, within the spirit of the act,
means lands practically so."

Contributions by the Woman's Chris
tian Temperance Union.
The Womans Christian Temperance
Union met at the usual hour on Wednes
day, May 8th, at the school house, but,
"owing to circumstances over which
they had no control," they concluded to
hold their session OUTSIDE of the building
instead of inside; and, as the aforesaid
circumstances seemed rather adverse,
devotional exercises were disj)ensed with.
Not much business was transacted,
and a motion of adjournment was speed
ily in order. They adopt as their motto
for this occasion "Nils Desperandum."
