On our recent visit to Olen last week
we found everything going aleng nicely
in the school rooms in districts No. 1 and
19. Miss Cora L Sowers is doing good
work, and as this is her first school, too
much praise can't be given her, and may
site continue in the school work. Miss
Elizabeth Harris is doing good work in
the scliool room, and we found her in her
place in the Sunday School on Sunday.
Such teachers as she can't help but be
successful and ws know the people of
that vicinity will long remember her
labors with them. We were pleased to
see the Sunday School going on and that
it is only an ever-green Sunday Scliool
by the faithfulness of a few. The Supt.
Mr. CA. Puddy, says there wit) be
special exercises on Easter Sunday; so
all sliould try and be there. We thank
the people of Olen for the kind and
generous spirit in which tbey received
us while among them.

We speel a part of last week aloof the
Platte valley, and found that a f real
iuaav changes have taken place in the
past fee? years. There has been but lit
tle enow there all winter, and stock have
not suffered as tbey nave 00 the higher
land. The price of land is, high, and
there is a town about every ton miles, so
it makes it quite convenient, so far as
towns go. We predict a bright future
for this valley unless something turns up
that will rob them of their abundant
supply of water. We were favorably
impressed with the town of Mitchell, aod
her schools are very good. Her paper,
"The Index," is published by Mr. O. B.
Mark, and gives list news 10 a brie and
concise manner. We found a welcome
hand from all, and if we conclude to re-
move from Harrison we will be tempted
to settle in Mitchell.

To use an eighteenth century phrase,
this is an "e'er true tale." Having hap-

of the present. Up to a short time ago
Mrs. John E. Harmon, of Haifa Station,

Cough Remedy. "Last January," she

Editor of Press-Joiirsal:
Having read your recent article, com
mentinii on the action of the ladies of
Crawford, concerning this serious prob
lem the saloon; I wish to congratulate
vou for the noble stand you have taken
for their encouragement, and also for so
bravely exposing list awful and direful
influence of tin saloon.' As you state a
great roaoy citizens uphold the aaloou
on account of financial support for the
schools, but if we observe closely, that
element is usually that so isalled honor
able class, who tho,' they may not be
habitual imbibers, are not too noble to
enter these dens of iniquity and mingli
with the rough element, where they
would he abashed if their actions were
disclosed to their wives. We admire
men who will stand boldly and firmly
for the right, and upon these the rights
and prosperity of our nation rests. We
pray and hope that the rising generation,
who have learned through science, the
evils of intoxicants, aad besides can see
the results of expense and misery, will
profit by the sad experience, and rise up
in a srlid phalanx against this horrible
Demon Intemperance, and wrest from
him this power he has swayed for
centuries But we must not sit idly
dreaming, awaiting this happy time,
while the Monster slays his millions, but
. t... 1
awake as the wives and daughters of
Crawford are doing, and help to forward
the good work. I extend mv heartfelt
thanks to the editor and also sincerest
interest and encouragement to the ladies
of Crawford, in their earnest endeavor.
May God in his wisdom strengthen them
and crown their efforts with success.

scarcely ever llnd a school where one
