A Mr. Tilton of "ew York called at
the Faumeu ofiice lust weed in search of
information that would lead to the fiax
growing parts of yebras'ka, as well as
thc.amounts grown and acreage. As
near as we can leant there was grown
Ie.-?s than 100,000 bushels in the state
in 1SS0, yet in the United States there
was grown all together a little over 9,
000,000 bushels, Iowa raised about
twice as much as Nebraska, and Illi
nois more tlian Nebraska and Iowa
together. Kansas grows a large
amount, but just how much we arc un
able to say. Knziias however consid
ers Hax one of her best crops. If it
pays to raise it in Kansas, why will it
not pay tu this state. The expense ofl
harvesting flax is no greater than that
of wheat or oats, and is much easier
marketed. Mr. Tilton tells us lie is
buying now to ship to the old country
and gives it as his opinion that the flax
market will be good for a number of
years to come ; says the demand now
is much greater than the supply, and
is liable to be for some time. There is
one thing certain, it don't pay to raise
wheat in this state, and yet it is very
necessary that farmers should have
sonic crop to turn ofi' in the fall, and
before the corn crop comes in, and if
flax is more profitable than wheat or
oats, it is the crop for our fanners to
raise. We should be pleased to hear
from some of those that have tried flax

To yeopU of Xebratht:
With the return of more genial days,
after a winter of unusnal severity, it is
a pleasing duty to announce the ap
proach of Arbor Day, which, by official
recognition and established custom, is
st apart and devoted to tree planting
throughout the State of Nebraska.
The common welfare requires unre
mitting zeal in this direction. It
seems needless however, to suggest the
benefits that may be derived from an
abundant growth of timber om oar
Therefore, in harmony with the ac
tion of the State Board of Agriculture,
I, Albinus Nance, Governor of the
State of Nebraska, do hereby designate
the third Wednesday of April, 1881.

but pausing through the Hall and up
the stairs to the executive waiting
room we find ourselves egregiously
sold, for the crowd ia there and has
taken possession of every seal, while
numbers are standing, smoking, filling
the room and hall with reeking fumes
of cheap cigxre. One shows the
obliging clerk whose daty it is to
listen to the wants of and woea of this
motley crowd, ltk papers, which bear

is just the man to be Postmaster at
ilardscrabble. Another has the sig
natures of all the good men ia his
town. They really hope that the
President will send him to one of the
Cannibal Isles or anywhere dec. Ut
terly useless commnnity can spare
him and no one will miss him or
mourn his absence when he has gone.
Here is a woman who wants an extra
session 01 congress, sne is uuKing
and waiting. Past girlhood and well
iuto the forties. Site is not handsome,
has four front teeth that have been
dropped somewhere. She carries a
paper box full of documents and is
able to satisfy the president in just two
minutes that an extra session is neces
sary. Here is a man wno looks
strange and liaggard. He has a pat
ent for saving the nation and he must
see the President "right away." The
good Matured attendant assures him
that it is impossible and suggests that
he put his wishes on paper which he
proceeds to do and hands in ten pages
of foolscap to be consigned to the
Presidential waste basket. The most
confirmed opponent of civil service
will be satisfied in an hour's visit to
the Executive Mansion or to the
offices of members of the Cabinet, that
a check must be put upon this greed
for office by a fixity of ita tenure,
Itascd 0:1 competency and good be
haviour. The country can never
stand this strain when its population
shall have reached 100,000,000 and the
Nation's life will be more and more
endangered until the brakes arc ap
plied. Postmaster-General James has a
letter from Dr. Slaghorn, the postmaster-general
of the German Empire,
congratulating him upon his promo
tion to the head of the postal service
of the United States, a compliment
that is the more valuable from the
fact that it is purely personal and
without the formality which attends
McVeagh, like Mrs. Partington's Ike,
never opens his mouth but he puts
his foot in it. Tha t he did try to bluff
the President by saying that he coukl
not remain in the Cabinet if the ap
pointment of W. E. Chandler was
made, is without doubt true, and it is
apparent that he would now like to
find an easy way of taki ng it all hack ;
Chandler however wi 11 not ask to have
his name withdrawn to please Mc
Yeagh, nor is the Pliskat williff he
should do so. It may a well he con

Maine and Nebraska, in Maine a, bill
conferring acbool-sutfragc on women,
although supported by a petition sixty
yards long with a double row of names

The new achool law ia a complete
change iu many respects. It was pre
pared by a gentleman who has made
educational systems a study, and who
has been from the early butory of our
state associated with it educational
progress, aud it is doubtless as the re
sult of his convictious of tlie ucccilie
of our schools that he ha embodied in
the law provisions enabling all women
owning property or having children of
school age to vote in all school mat
ters. So the women of Nebra-ka have had
greatness thrust upon them and now
are they ready to enter upon their new
privileges with appreciation and en
Even under the drawbacks of our
present school system, owing to the
liberality of the state and the faithful
exertions of the teachers, every child
of a good constitution and strong de
termination may obtain a fair educa
tion, but to every thoughtful educator
and oliservcr, the question mutt recur,
are the results obtained adequate to
the outlay ?
Mrs. Diaz says "whosoever would be
tranquil, let him not investigate," and
thi is tme with regard to our public
schools. By not investigating very
largely, we have been able to maintain
a tranquil conviction that "whatever
is, is right," and a patriotic Fourth of
July belief the public schools of Amer
ica are the particular institution
which i to place and hold her in the
vau of nations. Meanwhile the facts
arc that several foreign countries have
superior advantages and better results;
thnt private schooling in our land,
even among those who can illy afford
the expense, is largely on the increase,
owing to a belief that the public
schools are hurtful in many ways;
the graded schools in the cities, while
admirable in theory, prove a veritable
treadmill to both teachers and pupils;
that truancy or total neglect is fearful
common ; that the health of the pupil
is broken down, and special organs as
those of sight and speech iujured per
haps for life ; catarrh and other ser
ious troubles induced hy the bad air ;
the morals arc contaminated and de
praved habits allowed, and sometimes
the mind is permanently weakened by
the monotonous strain. By the time
the pupils have reached an age when
these circumstances would be less in
jurious, they are probably weary of
the dismal routine, and entirely dis
gusted with stady, the majority of
them escape from the restraints of the
school, with a bare smattering knowl
edge, without faculties trained for
sturdy application in the ssee of diffi
culties, aad without an eathusiasm for
having bees awak-
Theae are the evils of oar system in
general terms. In some sections these
arc exceptional disadvantages. In oth
em radrt idual finthMlness has proda
ced better results. Women are aow
beginning te share the rtposibiliUe
of school management, for they are
bow allowed to vote oa sehoal matters
ia fifteen states and territories, and a
great work may be done for the next
generation if women of wisdom and
leisure will open their eyes to the evils
that exist, trace them to their cauesa,
s lead a hand to rectify them. The
first dwty of the women af Nehnska ia
this directioa is hy their rotes at the
coming election to see that the govern
ment of the schools is placed in the
