Thanksgivingday was well observed
In this city, with appropriate religious
services. The discourse of the Iiev
T. 8. Low e at the First Presbyterian
Church was very interesting and ap

clonelv listened toby a very interest

' On Thanksgiving day, the comma

for the first time, a Thanksgiving.
All passed olT according to true west

from Ohio, all tarried for dinner;
having "roast turkeys,"'. "chickens,"

and a large surplus to carry away.

jieatand tactfully painted and seated.
The minister is not only talented, but
Jealously devoted to the cause of his

devoted, and are amone our most
Jiberal public and private citizens.

, Yours, Lc.
The Fencing Policy.
More than one-half the importance
of the Southwestern road Ave deem
lies in the strategy of its creation
Throuch it we will not only reach out
and lraw to us the valuable trade of
the rich and crowinir country em
braced in our southwestern counties,
but at the same time will build a fence
across the back door of one or two ri
val cities that have heretofore taken
from us much of the , fruits of trade
that naturailv trravitate in this direc
tion. This despoiling and robbing of
our fields should at once be 6toppea.
"Wc can only do so by fencing them
with railroads. Xcbraska City Press.
It appears from the above that Ne
braska City Is contemplating two ob
jects; first, to reach after trade; sec
ondly, to fence across the back door of
one or. two rival cities south of them.
Now, if she is so desirous of secur
ing our back-door trade as to go to the
expense of fencing across our back
doors to prevent our going in that di
rection, why we certainly will accora-
modata her. provided the health of
our city and its tanitary regulations
are not infringed upon in the opera
But, says our cotemporary, "more
than half the importance of the
Sou t western road we deem lies in the
strategy of its creation."
Ah I well, we supposed they meant
business; but if it is a little paper no-
tariety that they were after, then we
do not doubt that half of what they
wish to accomplish was gained in the
"fctrategy of its creation ;" though
just what was "created" and just what
they expect the other "half of the im
portance" is to consist of, and when
they expect to receive its benefits, we
are uninformed, but must await the
developments of the future.
We are glad to hear of the prosperi
ty of Nebraska City and of all other
portions of our common State, and
have no desire to fence them up in
order to compel farmers to come to us
to trade,' who how do their trading
We are sorry our neighbor of the
JYess should feel so worried tccause
he farmers of the country will come
o Brown ville to trade.
.If the people of Johnson and Gage
counties do their trading in Brown
ville, It Is because goods are cheaper
here and they find a more ready sale
for their wheat, corn, cattle and hogs
here, and at better prices. However,
the farmers of those counties may
rather like the idea of being fenced
out of Brownville by Nebraska City.

ikinson of Ihe United States
Land Office for Urn District has been
in Brownville the past week. From
him wo learn that the mail service
from Roirioo - oror to the Xilttte
Blue runs once a week via Swan City
to Meridian, and from thence once
week via Fairburry to Jenkins Mills
He thinks a little effort would se
cure a more direct route and increased
His estimate is that over one thous
and Homesteaders have settled in the
valley of the Little Blue the past
summer: and that Postofllccs are
called for In settlements on the road
direct from Beatrice to Jenkins Mills
- The Department cannot realize
with, what rapidity this State is being
settled up, and so they are slow to be
lieve that mail services are needed to
day where none was thought of a year
For this reason the frontier settlers
are sadly neglected until light, can
force its way over the red tape policy
of Government officials into the sanc
tum of the pri meres of the nation
where the demands and rights of the
people are recognized and supplie
We have long thought of saying
something each week to the boys and
girls who attend the public schools in
this county. It is quite proper that
they should form such habits now
which will aid them in making good

and girls. Ma haa to' get up, dress
herself and get the breakfast work
started. She gets the boys and cirls
up ; they yawn and fret, but at-last
they are ready and eat their breakfast
and soon start for school. At school
they study their lesson some, and
complain more cf how hard the les
son is. They are permitted to pass
over one or two pages, knowing little
and at. last nothing of the principles
eiplaincdon those pages. . They then
pu.s on for days and weeks in Inehtal
darkness.' They .don't know anything
about, incur ie&son : cant answer a
single question; ican only repeat the
answer after the teacher or some other
scholar has recited the most of it.
They 'look at the scholar who perfectly
understands every principle of. the
lesson they look at the teacher, who
seems .to Know an auout ine lesson,
with Y0uder and amazement at their
readiness iu answering such difficult
questions, and soon settle down tinder
the impression that they are not as
smart as the better scholar ; that they
never can know as much as the
teacher; and this bad habit grows up-
on them of relying upon others for
their information, and when they get
to be men and women they still have
to' rely' on others. Such is the effect
of early training. The consequence is,
that they never amount to much in
life, '..If any enterprise is before them,
they go to this one and that one for
advice as to what they better do, and
the.'oounsll they thus obtain are so
conflicting that,' they, absolutely do
nothing, and always remain poor,
doing the drudgery of life.- ;?

said by the 1st day of August, a. a

for another. The reasons which, aro
thus urged were all considered oy the

Home Mission Society for thi3 State,
several of the triends of tbir socletv
in the neighborhood of West Branch,
on the loth inst.. convened at the
house of Capt. FuHer, and after due
deliberation decided to form a Congre
gational Church, which was done ac
cordingly, and Rev. M. N. Miles,
late of Genesee, was chosen Pastor,
and Capt. Fuller Deacon. Pawnee
Senator . Sumner in a lecture at
Elizebeth, N. J., on the22d, said the
the Chinese question must be met.
Attention was once attracted to tl.e
negro ; now it is the Chinese who de
mand protection. Nothinsr can be
settled which inotright. Thisques

the principals of our fathers, and in
