The uew School Law makes a com
plete change in our school system,-placing
almost supreme control cf the sys
tem in the hands of nn officers designa
ted is Si'periatendant cf Public Instruc
tions. Yet, in the haste cf cur Legisla
ture to found cities and fcrm mushroom
railroad companies, cf which they were
incorporators, do law was passed 'by
which to elect a Superintendent of Pub
lic Ia'itructions. By the law the duties
.cf this effice are devolved upon the Coun
ty Clerks until such officers are elected.
That there is o-o law providing for the
election cf Superintendent we learn from
O. B. Heett, who stated in the Con
vention, thit he had written to the Sec
rettry cf Slate en the subject, who re
plied that he could find to law fcr the
.election cf any such officer.
Ucder these circumstances is it not
ill important to be doubly careful in the
election cf a County Clerk, who, with

cational fystem cf so liule importance
that it may be bartered and traded away

We must have a thoroughly qualified

Ttc licnalia County Agricultural
Which was held Wednesday, Thurs
day and Fridaycf last week in this city,
was deciiedly a great success, all cir
cumstances being considered. The at
tendance was large on the second end
ttir day, the road leading to the Fair
ground being thronged with every dis
cretion cf vehicle, and many going on
horseback. We never sa w a mere gene
rally satisfied set cf people at any exhi
bition, and the general comment was
very favorable, all going home determin
ed to grow cr prepare something for the
The classes were generally well tiled
and the competition close and lively. We
assumed the privilege cf taking a few
cotes, and intend to print 'en. Of core
the showing was such as to nobly sustain
Nebraska's reputation as ens cf the
lest corn raising States in the Unicn.
We measured and weighed a few speci
mens a3 this would give a better idea
thta could bo arrived at in any other
G. Ehellhcrn, 5 ears yellow weighed
0 pounds, average length 12 inches.
B. F. IIclLlr ih, 5 ears white 8 lbs.,

W S Hughes, G ears, pure white, 6 1-2
lbs, 9 inches.
Geo. Marshall, 5 ears, yellow, 7 li,
12 1-2 inches in lergth.
This is but a few average samples, the
collection embracing almost every known
variety, among the reit Geo. Marshall
exhibited some cf th regular Flour
Cora raised in this cour.ty, as fine a
specimen as we have evtr seen. Why
is not this "kind cf corn more extensively
raised to make meal of? It is certainly
the ctJy kind cf corn adapted exclusive
ly for that purpose. .
Thy showing cf Wheat was not .so
full as was hoped, yet the samples were
very fine. Ed. Smith took the first pre
mium. The display cf Ro6l Crops wa3 full ;
we give the weight and size cf ihe ave
rage : -
Geo R Davis, white beet, weighed
13 1 2 lbs, 20 inches long and the same
Jacob Collins, cne white beet, 9 lbs.,
15 inches long and 19 in circumference;
and one weighing 11 1-2 lbs, 21 inches
leng and IS around.
A T D Hughes, Turnip?, cne weigh
ing 6 lbs, 23 inches in circumference.
R W Furnas. Turnips, cne weighing
5 1-2 lbs, 22 inches r. round.
' Stafford exhibited some Carrots 2 feet
long, and broke off in the ground where
they were one inch in diameter.
The varieties cf Tomatoes were well
represented, as were aboSweet and Irish
Potatoes, in samples choice, yet not near
so large as we have seen raised in this
county, and we were much pleased to
hear the general determination of our
farmers to do better next season.
Several specimens of large Onions
were exhibited, EJ. Smith had 'half
bushel averaging near n pound . apiece.
Geo Shellhorn and James Coleman
bad the largest heads cf Cabbage on trie
ground; average weight about 30 lbs.
. Geo Marshall, Pumpkin. 5 feet ia circumference.
Squash, A T D Hughes, 4 1-2 feet in
The display cf Fruit was magnificent,
the collection cf Grapes, Pears, Plums,
etc., exhibited from the garden of Col.
Furnas, would do credit to aDy old
fruit couttry. In size and flavor they
couU not be excelled anvwhere.
Mrs. Loveless made a very fine dis
play" cf variety cf Summer, Fall and
Winter apples and Peaches, from the
Loveless Farm near London. Amon"'
the. choicest cf her collection, and the
hardiest in this climate, we notice the
Big French, weighing near a pound each,
the Pound Pippin, Limber Twig- and
Winesapp, all being extra fine of their
kind and of splendid flavor. Their
Peaches, though seedlings, were large
and well flavored. The showing of seed
ling apples from this farm was very fine.
Chris. Deuser, Hiram Alderman and
Mrs. Thurman were on hand with Pound
Pippins, averaging more than their
name would indicate.
A fine lot of Pottery was . exhibited
from Rich Bro'a Works near Rose Bot
tom. This was undoubtedly as fine ware
as can be made, besides being good, it
is certainly more ellegantly shaped than
any we ever saw before.
Lcuis Waldter. gained, as he deserved,
the first premium for sign painting.
Both Marhon and Seeman made a fine
display -cf Gent's Clothing. Marhon
had also on exhibition a piece of Cashi
mere Beaver cloth, made from the wool
cf the Cashunere Goat.
On the Ladies' side of the exhibition
we cannot refrain noticing a few speci
mens which were trully excellent:
Mrs Lewis Brown Worsted Counterpane.-
Mrs Henry Hart, the same, cf anoth
er pattern. -
Mrs W B Phillips, crotchet tidy. fine.
J.Irs F A Tisdeil, 2 samples, crotchet

Mrs Mary McCcmas, 2 specimens of
crotchet work, very fine, showing the
work to perfection.
Miss Morey, chain tidy, made of tape
work into rosettes then sewed together.
Mrs. Claggett, silk pin cushion and
bead work; also, feather flowers, very
A number of very fine Lamp Mats
were on exhibition.
Mrs Hoadley silk velvet sofa cushion,
decorated with bead and worsted work.
Mr3, Lett, bed quilt, rose pattern,
showing splendid wotk.
Mrs W B Phillips, bed quilt, rose pat
tern, splendid article.
Mrs Kennedy, child's bonnet made cf
wheat straw, unique am ellegant.
Stafford had on exhibition a splendid
collection of Photograph Pictures.
Miss Downey took the lead inboquets
of natural flowers, the collection con
taining several specimens of the most
rare and beautiful flowers. Ben Whyte
also made some display, yet the grass
hoppers had greatly lessened his ability
to compete for the premium.
Miss Setta McCord, a wreath cf butter-flies
and Mosaic work.

that, although there wns no competition,

for market at the rate of eighily bushels
an hour, fcr seed forty tu.-nels. It was
pronouueed by till a most" perfect separa

moveable scrtene, which raaUes it im
pessibb for foul seeds to mix with seed
wheat. They are fast coming into use.
They are strongly built, taking up much
les? room- than tn3 ordinary mills, the
price f a mill complete is S3o. Mr.
Hawley is agent for this and Otoe county.
The exhibition cf stock was not so full
as desired, and mostly entered on the
third day, which prevented our taking
any notes on these classes, yet the show
ing gave general satisfaction.
One noteworthy item in regard to the
competitors at this Fair is ihe fict that
a great majority of those taking money
premiums nave given the amounts back
to the Society, as a start towards buyng
and enclosing grounds for the next Fair.
We shall likely give a list cf those dis
posed to act thus generously. ' .

The News ami Lincoln. ;
The Neb., City News intimates that
the Radicals of Nemaha County, in con
vention, have endorsed the Capitol re
romoved and the location at Lincoln.
The editor of ihe News knew this to
be a falsehood when he penned it ; and
this part plainly indicates the strait he
is in for capitol to bolster up the removal
of the' seat of government of Nebraska
for the benefit cf that city.
The Radicals not only did not indorse
the removal or location, but when the
idea of endorsement was introduced it
was unanimously laid on the table; the
movers being content to say nothing
more about it, after feeling the temper
of the meeting. A resolution was pre
pared condeming the whole scheme, and
especially that part of it giving away
4S.000 acres of the public lands for the
removal; yet. the convention borke up at
such a late hour' with its ranks so much
desceminated by members withdrawing
that it was not introduced.

tha r:C2t daring
r.r.ted m leorasiia
thii city. The cir
cumstances as near as we can It?rn them
were as follows ;
Between 10 and 11 o'clock at night
the office of T. W. Bedford, cn Maui
street, was entered by the back door and
the safe unlocked and r.ll,d of its con
tents, amounting to about $14,700 ; the
bulk of ihis sum belonging to Messrs.
Bedford i Ceaner and tha M. U. ExT
Co., for which Mr. Befcrd 13 Agent.
Tha first loi cf the Ex. Company bein.g
87,700, $4,7C0 having since bffn found,
nett loss cf the company $3 COO.
The loss aa discovered within cne
hour piter the theft. Mr. Bedford im
mediately gathered a possee cf citizens
and began the search, which resulted in
the finding cf many packages cf the
money scattered along the alley back cf
the office and toward the river, leading
the nett loss now about $10,000.
Considering all the circumstances, th
timeit" was committed, the fact that Mr.
Bedford was at no time farther than two
squares from his effice during the even
ing, the complex character cf the luck
picked, and the effice being almost sur
rounded by business houses, this is cer
tainly one of the boldest burglaries on
record in the west, ' and indicates that
the perpetrator. was a journeyman at the
business wiin tne exception, perhaps,
of scattering so much . of. the money on
the read as he left.
No clue is yet found to tha money or
thief, although several arrests have been
madcr. 'Messrs. Bedford & Conner offer
$1,000 reward for the recovery of the
money and the arrest of the thief or
thieves, or information resulting in such
recovery cr arrest.
Are you, reader, ready to see cur
railroad project dd by a set cf local
Iy jealous politicians ? We are not in
dividually, and never will be!.. When
politics interfere with the material inter
est of cur county we want none in ours.
If you a-e in favor of Nemaha county
public improvements, vote for J. L. Mo-
Gee, Independent candidate for Ccmmis
sioner ; if in favor of throwing our heri
tage to Otoe county, vote' for the fraud
chosen candidate of the 14th. :
An (S"er lo compromise ! WI10 Is
tlic Coaveniion or Hie Ulh'!
We have reliable authority lor the
statement that a party frcm Peru was in
ihi3 city the fore part of this week feel
ing around for a compromise- between
ihe nominees of the 14th and the Inde
pendent Republican . ticket, based upon
the substitution of J. L. McGeeupon the
ticket of the 11th.' Who is authorized
to swap Off the nominee's of the 14!h?
We're opposed to any trading of (he
kind, but would like to know: Was it a
Peru Convention, or a County Conven
tion? If the former Peru can offer a
trade, if it was ihe htter, How do you
like it other Precincts?
We would 'nt give one man on the In
pendent Republican Ticket for a wilder-,
ncss of Kents ! Don't be alarmed, gen
tlemen,. enough true Republicans will
vote for the straight Independent ticket
to elect it 1
. To the everlasting credit of our Ger
man friends Ottens, Harm? and Siin
man be it recorded that they soured
on and left the balloi-box-stuffiug Con
vention of the 14th as soon as it showed
its character. Otten's nomination did
not catch him, although we endorse his
name for Coroner, and call upon all to
vote for Bernard Ottens.
Remember, there is no law for the
election of a Superintendent of Public
Instructions Vote for as good and effi
cient a CouDty. Clerk a3 ever held a pen,
Wm. II. Hoover ; the Clerk is also Su
perintendent cf Public Instructions. We
