evening as a secial train loaded with

were making the run to Andrews, where
7 cars more of cattle were to be loaded
about half way between the summit
2 miles oast of this place and Andrews
a tie had lieen placed on the track as was
supposed to ditch the train. Fortunately
the tie was an old one and so badly rot
ted that the train ran over it cutting and
grinding it to pieees causing no damage
to the cars. But had it been a solid tie
it would have ditched the train. This is
the second attempt to wreck a train on
the F. E. & M. V., road near this same
place w ithin a week. The writer in con
versation with Mr, Seigart, road master
on last Monday noon learned that it was
thought to be a boy who was herding
cattle nearby, that had placed the ob
struction on the road, not with any
malicious intent because ho was not
old enough to comprehend the distruc
tion to life and property it might do bu,
out of a curiosity to see what effect it
would have on a passing train. Mr.
Seigart sent the lioy word that another
such a foolish caper committed by him
would le followed up by arrest and
punishment to the full extent of the law.

The Following Circular letter pnt out
by Supt. Jackson will bo of
trrrst in Nebraska Schools.
Lincoln Neb., July 20, 1898.
To Nebraska school people:
Many have experienced difficulty in lo
cating the Nebraska EJucational Ex
hibit at the Trans Mississippi Exposi
tion: hence this circular.
This exhibit is to be found in the
Gallery of the manufactures building.
Some visit our educational headquar
ters in the Nebraska building and fail
to find the exhibit, not knowing that it
is put ui) in another building.
The exhibit occupies some fifteen thou
sand square feet of floor spaje, and
comprises all grades of school work from
Uie kindegarten up through the State
University and is pronounced by lead
ing educators of other states as one of
the finest educational exhibits tbey liave
ever seen. The New England Journal
of EJurntinn, published at Boston nnd
I'hiciigii hi its issu.j of July II, makes
the following comment: "The educa
tional exhibit of Nebraska at the Trans
Mississippi Exposition, Omaha, is one of
the best, if not literally the best, ever
made in the Unites States." Great credit
is due to the thousands of educators and
pupils of the Nebraska schools wbo se
faithfully co-operated with us in making
the exhibit a success.
While we are all proud that Nebraska
has the lowest per cent, of illiteracy we
feel that thin exhibit is right in keeping
with the high standing our state lias at
tained. The work is neatly arranged and tast
fully decorated. Visitors can find seats
where they can rest and examine the
work. You can "Stand up for Nebraska
perhaps in no better way than by taking
your friend with you to see this. exhibit
which no doubt is as fine an educational
exhibit as was ever put up by any state.
