Geo. Grimm moved his family last
week to the upper 33 where he will reside
and look af'er the interests of Brewster
and Co. for the next year. We did our
first days work in Nebraska on this old
ranch over IS years ago when women
were a scarce article in th.it part of the
country, but things have changed since
then. We remember ono day of Otto
Tietze coming to the ranch with a young
lady and the young men were peeping
around the cornera of thn buildings as if
they h.id never seen a woman before.
But these young men are all lienedicts
now, even Otto, that the boys seemed so
We would like to say to our school
board in selecting our te:u:hers for thn
next year, why not consider our home
talent. We have advocated our people
patronizing home industries, &c. and we
think it just as reasonable to recognize
our home girls and bov where they la
bor for an education, and are as compe
tent in every way as teachers that are
imported and we know what they are.
It would seem unreasonable to our
school board were one of our own home
graduates without any experience to ap
ply for a position in eur school, but
strange to say we have had strangers
that hare had no experience tench in our
school, and why not treat our own as
you would strangers. Recommendations
don't oount for anything these days for
anything can get a recommendation as
our board full well knows from past ex
perience, and why not help s m of our
own teachers get started in of ur graded
schools as well as strangers. What say
you to this, gentlemen?
A WONDERFUL INVENTION.
It is interesting to note that fortunes
are frequently made by the invention of
articlesjof minor importance. Many of
the roost popular devices are those de
signed to benefit the people and meet
popular conditions, and one of the most
interesting of these (hat has ever been
invented is the Dr. White Electric Comb,
patented Jan. 1, '99. These wonderful
Combs positively cure dandruff, hair
falling out, sick and nervous headaches,
and when used with Dr. WhiteVF.Iectric
Hair Brush are positively guaranteed to
make straight hair curly in 25 days' time
Thousand of the electric combs have
been sold in various cities of the Umou,
and th demand is constantly increasing.
Our agents are rapidly becoming rich
selling these combs. They positively sell
on sight. Sand for sample. Men s size

Tlit Truth Grade Commence
ment. The exercises of the Tenth Grade
which uas held at the M. . Church last
Friday night eclipsed anything tliat has
ever taken place in Harrison. By 6
o'clock there was not a vacant chair in
the church. The program was carried
out except the open air concert which
had to be left eut on account of the
heavy rain at that time. We were all
somewhat disappointed for we were
anxious to hear the baud boys give their
first concert to the public. At 8:15 the
class marched into the church while the
orchestra played an overture after which
praver was offered by J. B Bu.-ke. Af
ter a song by the ihoir, 51 iss Virginia C.
Parsons rendered the Salutatory, "Life
is Real," and we niut say she acquiled
herself with credit.
by Mi is Gertrude Converse was well
rendered and we hope that her many
prophesy may come true. The Class
address, "Hammer and Nails," given by
Rev. J. H. Andrews of Chadron, was a
masterful talk, anil was highly apprecia
ted by all. Mr. Andress spoke for one
hour and fifteen minutes nnd many said
they could have listened to him all night.
If the claxs will only remember one half
the good things that he said and will put
them into practice they will be much
benefited. We have heard Mr. Andress
speak several limes, and we are glad to
say that there was no disappointment,
and those that nursed hearing tins address
missed the best lecture that has ever
been given in Harrison. We feel sure
that the class made a lucky hit when
they got the services of tiiis gentleman,
and should e ever come to Harrison
ngain he will lie greeted by a full house.
Archio Davis gave t!:e Valedictory,
"Napoleon." Rev. V, C. Daniels, after a
few well chosen remarks presented the
Diplomas to the class after which the
Flower Fairies; Lucy Gerlach. Helen
Cl irke. Edna Davis and Ollie Morris pre
sented the oaxs with beautiful flowers.
Principal Morris with a few very appro
priate remarks presented Otte Paie with
a scholarship certificate, he standing the
highest In the class. This young man
deserves a great deal of credit for his
manly bearing and studious habits since
fie has been a.nong us. Some yeurs ago
God saw best to cull this voung man's
mother from this world leaving him
without h home, and the dearest friend a
young man can have, a mother, ilut
while these- have been tflken from him,
he oy his manliness has had a home giv
en him by A McGinley who tin given him
the advantages of our school for the psst
three years, snd Morris, his teacner,
in piesi-nl inn him with his scholarship,
said that he hud never given him one
moments worry, and that his attitude
toward turn us a pupil was nlwujs
manly and obedient. May he, when his
lifes work is ended here be ueh that j
when the. great record above is read it
may be the same as given by his teacher
as on the night of his graduation.
Archie Davis stood next in his class
nnJ ho has by his earnest efforts and de
votion to his work, brought him the
honors that were bestowed upon him on
this eventful evening and we hope that
he may ever remember the m-my sacri
fices that have been made by those inter
ested in him, that he might attain the
honor that was bestowed upon him by
his teacher, and the clnihs by choosing
Misses Virginia 0. Parsons, Edna Roh
wer and Elsie Rohwer have been reared
in Hioux county and are estimable voting
ladies, and have by their earnest efforts
and liidv Ilk? nmnnrs won th honors
bestowed them Friday night, by their
teachers, classmates and school board,
and we hope that the lives of these young
ladies may be brightened from day to
day by the remembrance of this epoch of
their life. Miss Gertrude Converse came
to Harrison atiout two years ago and by
her diligent and careful work, she earned
the honors bestowed and as she goes out
from this school we hope, that the many
excellent things that she has learned
may be used to make the world brighter
and better. We wish the class as did
their ninny friends on the evening of
their graduation. Success, anil may
their lives be spent in helping others for
there has been many a sacrifice made by
father and mother that these children
could I what they are today
The sinifine was very good considering
that two voices, that of Mrs. Wilherms-
dorfer and Mrs. V. C. Daniels were on
account of sickness unable to be present.
We will look forward to next year for
such another memorable event hoping
that there may be as many or more to
receive the honors for their many vears
work, for we know the patrons appreciat
ed the exercises of the evening as well as
the honors bestowed upon these young
people, and there were many visitors
