received from Seward and other places

Rev. Glasner brought us some
wheat fiom Pleasant Ridge, and J. AV.
Langdon brought us a sample from his
neighborhood on Monday. While the
samples are not as good as they might
have been, they show that there is not a
crop failure in Sioux county this year
and the settlers will have plenty to live
on and some to spare.

County Superintendent Southworth
informs us that he intends having an in
stitute for one week, notwithstanding
the fact that the commissioners made no
annronriation therefor. He expects to
pay an instructor what he collects from
the teachers who attend and his bills
will be put in to be paid as usual out of
the general fund. The Journal has al
ways advocated the advancement of the
educational interests of the county and
has the same feeling now but since the
board has decided not to apply any mon-
ev for institute purposes it does not
-look just right for the county superin
tendent to make a farce of the matter by
attempting to have an institute with
out funds and expect teachers to go to
the trouble and expense of attending a
gathering for only one week. The
trouble of the institutes in the past has
been that they have not lasted long
enough and to make the time ono-half
of what it was before makes it appear
very much like childs play. It has been
hardly just in the past to the teachers
who have attended for people have been
granted certificates and employed in
some of the best paying districts who
attended no institute and had been to no
expense in the matter. The commis
sioners evidently made no appropriation
for institute for the purpose of economy
of county funds and the plans of the
superintendent seems to be to defeat
theip- plans to a certain extent. He
would feel bad if the board should re
fuse to allow his bill for the time he put
in at his one week institute, and after
their action on the matter it would be
no more than should be expected, for
they have made their plans and know
what use they can make of the funds at
their disposal. It is hoped for the sake of
justice to the teachers of the county
that Mr. Southworth will re-consider tl
matter and not put a hardship on them.

Significance of Flowers in Japan.
In a country favorable to so luxuriant
a growth of flowers in a wild stale, it
ceases to be a matter of surprise that
from birth to death flowers are in some
way associated with the daily life of the
Japanese; or even that for many years
after theirjleath. their graves continue
to' rWeive tribute of fresh flowers. The
draus of women of quality is always in
harmony, both in color and in the designs
embroidered upon it, with the seasons,
the (lowers and the productions of the
dillerent months of the year; and, as has
been before mentioned, all festivals have
their appropriate flowers. For wed
dings', red flowers, being recognized as
symbolic of the masculine principle, are
chosen as the bridegroom's (lower; white
ones, as feminine, representing the bride.
If she goes to the bridegroom's home
while flowers, in compliment to her,
predominate in the decoration; while if
the son-in-law is received in the bride's
home, red ones are most prominent.
Cn occasion, however, for house
warmings, all red flowers are shunned
as of dire omen. The Japanese word for
red hi is phonetically the same as that
denoting fire, so red dowers are avoided,
and also all those whose names contain
the ominous ideograph hi. On the black
list of (lowers thus prohibited we find
the sun-flower, lychnis, and UUum. con
color, or hivie-yuri. From "A Japanese
Floral Calendar," in Demorest's Family
Magazine for August.
There is probably not another people
in the world who appreciate and demand
such an excellent quality of wit as does
the Yankee nation. This is partly di:e
to education, but chiefly to the fact that
the American people have a quick per
ception; they think and act rapidly.
Again, we demand wit, we are deter
mined to be amused, and by some
natural law, not yet explained, it has
been demonstrated that werever and
whenever there is a demand, there is
also a supply. It is a question, some
times, if the humorist, like humor, is
not cultivated. Are wits born? or are
they made by circumstances or neces
sity? The busy American newspaper
editor, whose supply of "funnyisms" has
run out will go to some one of his
editors or reports and say", "give me half
a column of humorous paragraphs," and
forthwith they are written, sparkling,
bright and bubbling over with clever
wit. It is not the work of the profess
ional funny man, but the 'paragraphs
have all the freshness and humor of one
who has worked long s t the mill.- It is
a question if this sort of work, often
done on the spur of the moment, and
without previous thought or study, is
not more crisp and with a better finish
than that which requires more- care in
writing. It is not by any means the so
called professional funny man and he
has grown to be an institution
who is doing all the brilliant humor
which sparkles from the pages of our
daily and weekly press, or our periodical
literature of to-day. The Search Light

"A telegram in the New York Sun
of July 13 announces the marriage at
Wobura, Mass., of Dr. Edward Andrew
Weir, a recent graduate of the Harvard
medical school and a resident of Nebras
ka, and Miss Ada Cledell Hummell,
formerly a captain in the Salvation
army in Woburn."
The above appeared in the Omaha lit 4
of last Sunday and will be of interest to
our readers, as the groom was for some
years engaged in business in Harrison and
lias many friends here who will extend
hearty congratulations and best wishes
for a long and prosperous married life.
The newly married pair are expected to
arrive here in a few days.

Equal with the interest of those having claims against the Government is
that of INVENTORS, who often lose the benefit of valuations because of the
incompetency or inattention of the attorneys employed to obtain their patents.
Too much care cannot be exercised in employing competent and reliable solicitors
to procure patents, for tha value of a patent depends greatly, if not entirely, upon
the care and skill of the attorney.
With a view of protecting inventors from worthless or careless atttorney
and of seeing that inventions are well protected by valid patents, THE PRESS
CLAIMS COMPANY has retained counsel export in patent practice and is there
