Mrs. Belle Dunn entertained the people
of Harrison lust Saturday evening at t he
Harrison House with a musical program
rendered by her class, which consists of
about fifteen scholars. The large dinning
room in which the entertainment was
given, was crowded and the program
was highly praised. When Mrs. Dunn
started her class very few of the scholars
could read music and now they are able
H read and execute readily. The way in
which the program was rendered last
Saturday night shows very plain that
Mrs. Dunn is an excellent music teacher.
After the entertainment an hour or so
was spent in dancing. The people of
Harrison and vicinity hope that they shall
soon have the pleasure of hearing an
other entertainment by these people.

Several of Tlie Signal's.. ri'-
already expressed with iiope, usd tlie ex
pectation, that J. L. McBrieo, ;t be pre
sent S'jite lieputy Siierinteiident, would
be nominated for State Superintendent,
to succeed his present chief. State Super
intendent Fowler, who is serving his sec
ond term and who will not be acamlidate
far re-election. The Signal has rattier
ta!:en this for granted for various reasoos
which it may be timely to recount. Mr.
Mcltrien lias been Mr. Fowler's deputy
for the pa-st four years and has shown
such ability and such zeal and untiring
industry in tlie discharge of the duties of
the ofli'-e that, w far a The Signal can
learn, no man in the state has any notion
of contesting with Mr. McBrieo for the
nomination. These facts constitute tlie
large and prominent reasons for the be
lief that the republican state convention
will nominate Mr. McBrien by acclama
tion. If Uie people of the state needed any
endorsement of Mr. McBrien beyond their
own knowledge of him and his work for
the past three years the.y would have it
in the tact that he was the regard and
that his woik lias the approval of his
chief. It is not questioned by any one
in the state thai Mr. Fowler has proved
the most capable, the shrewdest and the
most successful Slate Superintendent tlie
slate lias ever had. He has planned
great educational campaigns and lias ex
ecuted them with great brilliancy. The
eople of the state have wondered how
such a small oOice force as the Slate
Superintendent has can turn out so much
work, work of the right sort and ail so
carefully and properly done.
Therefore, when a man like Mr. Fow
ler chooses a man forhischief lieutenant,
and confirms the choice by a second ap
iointment, it is a very grent compliment.
Mr, McBrien has received this compl -ment.
Mr McBrien's work as Deputy Sta'e
Superintendent has called him to all
pnrt'i nf the state during the past three
vears He lias a Mi nded, in his official
cspacitv, teachers' associations, teachers'
institutes, junior normals and mnny
other gatherings of teachers, has delivrr
ed lectures, high school commencement
oratinsand other public nddresses on
educational matters. He has assisted in
the work of securing teachers for fhe
school in the western part of the state.
Scarcely a week pusses that The Signal's
exchanges do not nontain commendatory
paragraphs about a visit, from Mr. Mr
Brien to some school or educational
gathering in their section. His work
and bis addresses nre always highly
commended, and (here is every reason to
believe that the people of the state de
sire him to be the next Stale Siierii.lend
ent. since the third term notion will pn
vent. the re-nomimUion of Mr. Fnw'er.
It may also lie timeh to recall i few
incidents in Mr. McBrien's career that
The Signal had occasion to recount some
vears ago. He is the son of a veteran of
the civil war, which may account in part
for tlte vigorous patriotism to which he
sooften gives utterance. He was born
and reared on a farm. His parents were
poor and it was only through great sac
rifice on their part, as well as upon his
own, that thev were able to assist, him
in gaining an education. How true it, is
that educations that have been fought
for are most appreciated and used to the
Deciding to make teaching hie life
work, Mr. McBrien first npent four years
teaching in the country and village
schools of Johnson county, Nebraska.
Then for four years he was county sup-
intenrient of that county. Then for four
years he was Dean of Orleans College.
Then for four years he was Superintend
ent of the 0ity Schools of Geneva, re
signing this place to accept the appoint
ment of Deputy State Superintendent,
tendered him by Mr. Fowler. Every
thing seems to run with Mr. McBrien in
four year periods. When he completes
his present term he will have served four
vars ns Deputy Sute Superintendent,
and if the hoes of his friends are realized
he will then step up to four years as
Mr. McBrien is a graduate of the Sterl
ing High School,. He studied at Camp
bell Normal University, Lincoln Normal
University, and the State University.
He holds a professional life certificate ns
a teacher in this state. In 1HU1 he was
elected president of tlie Nebraska State

Interest In the office or the State Super
intendent, it is The Signal's belief that
a nearly unanimous oii' iment will pre
vail in favor of Mr. McBrien to succeed
Mr. Fowler. Nextyeurisa presidential
year and therefore all convention will
probably be held early, and political dii
cussions are more timely now than they

VALUE OF THE BIRCH.
Vhat Old-Time Writers Regarded as
Old writers in mentioning birch
rocs seldom failed to say solemnly
hat they were useful to grow
branches with which to give boys
'hrashlngs. Turner regards the sup
ily of "flexible, rendent branches" for
mrposes of punishment as the chief
ncrit of the tree. Coles also based his
sstimate of the birch chiefly on Its
ise In the supply of rods as instru
ments of puniahmunt, for he writes:
"The civil uses whereunto the birch
erveth are many; as, for the punish
nent of children, both at home and at
tchool; for it hath an admirable In
luence upon them to quiet them when
hey are out of order, and, therefore,
lome call It make-peace." In ancient
Rome the fasces of the lictors, with
which they cleared the way for the
magistrates, were formed with rods
f birch, and their Influence wag usu
ally sufficient to Insure a rapid dls
lerslon of men assembled where they
ould Impede the passage of the ad
ministrators of the law. From that
lrr.e to within a comparatively recent
period tho birchen rod was regarded
w one of the most Important deter
ents of juvsnilo depravity.
