We understand that some of our people
who bought groceries from the Omaha
men, are not very well satisfied wllh
their deal. Well, the only difference is
that if it was our homy merchants they
could rectify it, but as it. is they will
have to grin and boar it. We will say
right here, that, no town in this north
west has a more .iceomatndating lot ol
merchants than Ins Harrison, and you
can buy goods as c'le u) as in anv town
within 100 miles, and of as good a quality
as you will net in any of these ton us
therefore we k;iv. stand bv your home

To The Pathons:
We kindly invite your attention to
alsive report. While it makes a good
.showing, yet, itcan be improved. We
urge upon parents to sue that their
children are kept, in school, as much as
possible. It is very difticult for teachers
to do good work when pupils are con
tinually absent. A day or even a half
day absent tells Ipon the chdu'ii progress
hi school work.
We also ask the co-operation of the
people, generally, in making a school of
Harrison. R'-member teachers can't do
it all. It requires a united effort. If
ihe patrons are not in sympathy with tl e
teachers, the school woik will fall far
short of what it should be.
lkui't expect too much of your teach
ers they may make mistakes, fact is,
Ihey are not angels and wh.letliey may
labor as best they can and may exhaust
all their energies, trying to make the
school a success, yet without the sym
pathy and hieridly interest of the people
their efforts will umount to but very
While we recognize and fully appreci
ate t!;e rights of parents, yet we believe
thesysame rights should be exercised
along reasonable and judicious lines. A
patron's right, improperly used, may act
as'au injury, and this injury is to th"
child, Wb do not (ind fault with any
father or mother for loving the child
'his should be but we certainly think
Ihoretsa possibility if not n probability
of allowing litis love prove detrimental
to thu child's school work.
While the parents have l ights, tea' heis
have the same. State Supi. Fowler, in
nu ollicial decision, siys: "The teacher
te same place of the parent at
school and has the same jurisdiction over
the conduct of Ihe pupil there that the
parent has at home." The simple deduct
ion from this principle is; the teacher has
control of the pupil while at school and
is livij to exercise such discipline and to
appll such modes of punishment as she
or he may think best, and no one has a
right to question this authority. It is
very Irue lhat this prerogative may be
abused, but it is not very Irefpieatly
done to any great extent.
When the authority of the leader is
disputed, the school work is crippled.
Tell lour boy or girl, he or she need not
obey certain rules or regulations of the
teacher, and you have created in that
boy or girl's mind a principle, which if
not corrected, ill result in failure to
your child through life, and for all
the good thai may be done, you may as
well keep your boy or girl out of school.
For patrons to consult With the leach
ers is right and we most assuredly invite
such. It is far Irct.ter to gain information
regarding the school work from the
teachers and bv visiting the school room
than to i ant from second hand sources
