The school board has been making
aomi changes in the scliool this week
which will facilitate matters very much
in the intermediate grades. This room
has been over taxed lor Mini time, and
tha board after a careful view of the ail
uation concluded to put tha fourth grade
iyfthe primary room which they did on
Monday. This room having in attend
ance of about 20. The primary teacher
raised some objections to this for tha rea
aod that she could not do the same a
mountof work for the oiimary grades
thai -he had bean doing, and therefore
would make a bad showing in the work
that alia at first contrae'ed to do. We like
that spirit in whi.-h a person likes to make
a showing instead cf going through the
work with nothing in view, but to put in
the lima. After careful thought we feel
tlrnl the board did the wiaa. and oaly
thing in making thin change, and wa feel
that every conscientious patron of the
school will ay was the only, and proper
thing to do, Tha board represents the
people, and i f extra work is added we
are sure tha patrons will make the proper
allowance. We are glad to say that Miss
Tupper has given excellent satisfaction
for the time slie has tiught, and we feel
safe in saving that tha remainder of her
work will h a good. Wa have child

TEACHER. S AND MATRIMONY
Tbe Emrrgrncy Which Marriage
Cauaas In the l abile Scboels.
From the Chicago R'rd Herald.
The attention of those doleful peas
mists who cl-iiiM that society is going to
the bow -wows because there are so few
marriages is call- d to the efforts of the
stato of Nebraska to suppress an epidemic
of matrimony among tbe laclier iu Ihe
Never were teachers so scarce and never
werematTiagesso numerous among them
as in Nebraska, Singularh enough, the
young men of Nebraska have suddenly
ilecidrd to lie satisfied with nothing but
school mn'amM for wives and thev are rle
termi ned to have them for ( hristnias
gifts. They are not willing to wail until
tha teachers' con'ray-ts with school boards
have expired, Tliey regard the connubi
al contract as much more ioiprtanl nl
more binding '.ban contracts wit I, school
authorities. And the interesting feature
of the situation which c on pin-ales the
trouble for the school trustees is the fact
that the sceool ma'ams are io happy ac
cord with them and take anxious swains
upon these propositions. The situation
has grow n so desperate that the attorney
general has been urged to start injunct
ion or mandamus proceedings to enforce
teachers' contracts. Teachers will be en
j lined from getting marrieu until the end
if the school term, which comes ir May
or Juaa accord ing to the locality.
It is the state court against the court
of Hymen. It will ba interesting to see
which comes nut on top. In tbe mean
time tha education of tha youth of Nebr.
is in tha balance. The occasion ia op
port una for congratulating the stale up
on tbeaa manifold evidences of prosperity

congratulating tha young men upon
their good j adgment and pluck in nmk

Like Benedick in "Much Ado," a man
may be a very hero of physical encoun
ter, a professed woman hater and sworn
bachelor, and yet prove to be very vul
nerable to the arrows of love, provided
his tender spot ba touched. And, once
bit, he will surrender grace! uly; I ho
scales will fall from his eyes and he will
see his former self as a thoughtless brute
whose forced bravado lacked tha one
chief quality of heart.
There is nothing unwomanly in meet
ing your fate half way. Beatrice was
one of Shakespeare'a strongest women,
yet she did not make Benedick do ail the
courting; she would have been less a
woman if she had, and she would have
lost Benedick into tbe bargain. Of
course the world will have its gibes at
su-'h keen lovers, as they did at Benedick
and Beatrice; but the lovers have the
Seriously, it is a woman's prerogative
to pick out her husband. Why should
women insist on invariably lieing courted?
A girl need not be a (lot in order to have
it understood, in a sort of wireless way,
that she has a desirable heart, with all
modern i i.provemenls, unoccupied, and
to be hud by a satisfactory permanent
tenant. She an take her pick of appli
cants, and if she is particular as she
certainly should la- she can lay the
rules down to him.
A bad tenant is worse than none how
ever, and the most satisfactory tenants
are only to be had hv going after them.
Of course a heart that has been let to a
succession of careless tenants gets a b id
reputation and cannot command first
class patronage; hnce the importance of '
siaking snrethal your tenant is sincere,
orderly and honest, and that he does not
istend to forsake you for otaer lodgings
as soon us he har txhaiisled his credit
Don't make the fatal mistake of taking
in a bad tenant, out of pity, in the expec
tation of reforming him. This has failed
a thousand times where it has succeeded
once. Do your part in maintaining re
spectability at par, by refusing to accept
the baser coin.
Yes, it is leap year, and we hope that
no young woman who feels a vacancy in
her heart will let this opportunity slip
by. Of course there are those who for
onereasonoranotherchoo.se to remain
unattached. Too many do this because
they cannot light on a man who is good
enough for them. This is a mistaken
view; the man exists, and it rests with
them to And him. Marriage is a success
and alwavs will he. Our whole civilis
ation is premised on it, snd with rare
exceptions human beings should seek it.
