surplus corn states the decrease com
pared to last year is 13,972,571 acres.

A communication was sent to Lin
coin in regard to a statement made by
Prof. Leach before the institute whic
put that gentleman' in a false light. The
communication was published in the
Slate Journal. A statement signed by
the county superintendent and thirteen
of the teachers was sont down correct
ing the first statement and setting Prof,
Leach right and tliat was published in
the State Journal of last Sunday.
In another column appears a call by
II. W. MacLachlan, secretary of the
county agricultural society, for a meet
ing of the members of the society and
all others interested to take steps for ex
hibits at the county, state and world's
fair. This is a matter of importance to
all. For three Sears exhibits have been
made at the state fair under bad circum
stances and now with an era of prosper
ity shining on the county an exhibit can
be made that will bring about practical
results. A large number should be in
attendance at the meeting next Wednes
Among the putltig party from Lin
coin was Prof. Woods, and he stopped off
at points along the Elkhorn to make up
a crop report and did not arrive here
until the Saturday following the arrival
of the rest of the party and left for camp
with James Nolan about 6 o'clock of the
same evening and after spending the
night with Mr. Nolan, walked a co"uple
of miles to the camp on iindtfy morn
ing. On arriving there he Totind that
Prof. Bruner and J. B. White had left
camp the evening before and walked to
Harrison, a distance of 10 miles, in an
swer to a note, purporting to be from
him stating that he was sick at Harrison
and asking that some of them come and
take care of him. The note was signed
"F. M. Woods" which afe the initials of
his father. The note and signature Was
a forgery, some one having seen the ini
tials on a grip which Prof. Woods'
brought with him, had thought to be
smart and play a joke on the party, and
had written the, note and sent it to the
camp. Whoever wrote trie note nau me

two of the gentlemen to tramp to town

The institute which closed last week
as a record tliat is interesting in many
ways, and as there is no better index to
community than the condition its
schools and educators it may be of inter
est to note some of tliem.
The enrollment this year exceeded tliat
oi any previous year in the history of
tlie country, which indicates a growth in
the schools, and as a number of those in
attendance who did good work are the
product of the district schools of the
county the fact is apparent that the
schools of Sioux countv are. as rule.
The visit of Slate Superintendent
oudy, was another new feature in the
nstitute work of Sioux county and the
leasant, earnest, business-like and
holarly address by that gentleman
eased, instructed and encouraged the
teachers, and made them warm friends
of the head of the educational interests
of the state.
The lecture of Prof. Frank L. Fergu
son, of ths Chadron Academv was of a
harder which awakened new thoughts
ind opened new fields of labor for the
educators of the county and there is no
piestion but good results will follow.
The teachers showed a more lively in
terest in their work than nrevailed at
my previous institute, and Prof. Leach
nformed us that the examination papers
.bowed a higher per cent, to prevail
among the applicants, and an increased
number of lirsl and second grade certifi
cates were earned, which goes to show
that the schools of Sioux county will lie
tetter taught in future than they have
been m the past.
It was noticeable in the work of Prof,
Leach that he keeps right up with the
:eneral progress of school work in all its
epartments and he is fully abreast of
the times. This is the third vear he has
been here as an instructor and a large
majority of the teachers asked that he
be secured next year, which is a compli
ment to him and his methods. State
Superintendent Goudy also stated that
lie found that good work was being done
and coming in upon them at an unex
pected time gave him an excellent op
portunity to judge.
With the better qualifications pos
sessed by the teachers and the general
prosperity of the people throughout the
county, provision should be made by the
country districts to pay wages which
will warrant teachers in properly pre
paring themselves for their work.
Moore & Scott, tho well-makers,
have a card in this issue.
Parties are making arrangements to
build a grain house on the track and be
ready to buy the wheat ais soon as it is
ready for market. Work ie; progressing
on tlie new road so that by the time tlie
crop is ready for market the road will be
in shape. Whoever buys grain here
should make it a point to give tlie high
est price the market will admit. Last
year wheat sold as high in Har
rison as it did about 200 miles
east of here and if tlie place gets a good
name as a grain market it will draw
people for a long distance in each direction.
There will be a meeting of the Agri
cultural Society at the court house in
Harrison on Wednesday Aug. 3d at 3 p.
m., for the purpose of arranging exhibits
for the county, state and world s lair.
All interested are invited to be present
whether members of the society or not.
