We had the pleasure of attending A
spelling school in district 15 011 IKst
Thursday night. The exercises were
'abodt as follows. Spelled a short time
with trappers, then all arose to spell
for the championship, when the "boss"
began to fall on the right and left until
finally all but Charles Jackson, Anna
Cockrall, Henry Brubaker, Miss Belle
Schcnck and F.N. Richardson decided
not to spell, and they concluded to
epell for the championship, but Mr.
Jackson thought c, and Miss Cockrall
thought the final e were superfloua in
in the construction of discipline, but
Mr. Brubakej thought they were es
sential, so they succumbed.- Miss
Sehenck thought sophomore should
contain an a Richardson thought not
and at once substituted an o. Mr.
Brubaker not being a good planettari-
11111 the championship was awarded to
Mr. Richardson. In the second con
test Richareson and Brubaker declined
tospell in favor of the little folks. Miss
Anna Cockrall and Chas. Jackson were
the final contestants, but Mr. Jackson
being a woman's rights man had to
yield to Miss Cockrall, and she was de
clared first best in the second heat.

the school is terribly crowded and ac
commodations poor. Well, tbe house
is not the best. The attendance last
month was less than 23, this month it
will be less. Fifty to seventy-five per
sons can be tolerably comfortably
stowed away at a spelling school or
Lyceum, therefore there must be some
other reason for the dissatisfaction that
exists. Yes, "if news is scarce, give us
It is said that the American people
thrive on humbuggery. But would
they not thrive better if they were
humbugged less. It has not been a
year yet since the Cahill plow and car
nage company beat the farmers of
Webster and adjoining counties out of
thousands of dollars by putting on
them an almost worthless article for
more tlian three times its value, and
they are again ready to be humbugged.
Farmers, let us bo on the look out for
this sleek tongued gentry and when
they approach us with their worthless
trash, let us tell them to seek victims
elsewhere, or go to the country that is
hotter than this. Bewae of gilt edge
and all others of like stripe.
SELFISH RICH MEN.
Oh, you beggarly princes! Oh, you
miscreants, who have covered your
conciences and imaginations, who have
fattened with the devil of selfishness,
who have scraped all the goodness out
of yourselves ! Oh, you whose souls
sit down on the dunghill of filth, are
you a generous as you started if you
say of a man who has been generous
and died poor, "If he had been as care
ful as I, he would not have died so ?"
Yes, he lost his money and saved him
self, while you have saved your money
and will be damned.
There are multitudes of men like
dandelions. At first, they "look like

puff will destroy them, and no one
knows where (they were. What lfves
such, men live; such utter absence N of
heroism. How came such heathen in
the Church? The rich man with ware
houses, power in the' market with no
true soul power, is like a huge black
spider, hungry, though big bellied,
sucking all dry who come to his web.

Webster is the. seventh county west
of fhe Missouri Biver in the southern
tier of connties. It is 24 miles square,
has sixteen townships, and contain3
an area of 576 square mile. It is
bounded on the north by Adams, on
I the east by Nuckolls, ond the west by
Franklin county, in Nebraska; and on'
the south by Jewell and Smith coun-"
ties in Kansas. In 1870 it had a! pbpu-"
lation of 16. It was organized in 1871,
aud in 1880 had, accofdfng to the gov-'
ernment census; a poptrTafion of 7,104.
Itis believed that at this ime it has a'
population of lO'.OOO. Ii is one" or tire
best watered counties in the State-
The Republican river runs through the
entile connty from west to east, at an
average distance of about five miles"
from the Kansas line. From the north
are eleven streams of living water,
flowing from eight to twelve miles in
to the Republican river, and twelve
from the south. These brooks are fed
by never failing springs, so the water,,
is clear and cool all tmUime. Oh the
banks of these streams grow more -or
lees timber which, but for the prairie
fires, would be luxuriant and abund-"
ant. The principal varieties are wal-
nut. oak, ash, elm, cotton wood and
box elder. There has been quite a"
growth of red cedar, but it has beeir
mostly cut off or destroyed. In some'
places timber is quite" plenty yet. and
with care will be sufficient tor home
consumption. On the upland, ana4
wnere the timber has been destroyed
on the streams, our farmers are plant
ing and cultivating groves of timber
which, in most-places, are doing excel
lently, and which are now a great pro
tection and in a few years will be suf
ficient to supply all demand?. If those"
who have timber will use it pWdently
and savingly, and those who have'
none will plant and cultivate thoso
varieties that grow best here, Webster
County will soon have timber enough
and to spare. The general surface of
the land is undulating. Back from
the river a few miles the land is "quite5
level, while along the streams the land
issomewhatljrokenbutthe soil is of
the very best quality and produces alt
kinds of grain in abundance when well
cultivated. The bottoms are of the"
alluvial soil, and the vegetables and
small fruit grown in if can't he excelled"
anywhere. We are in the right lati
tude. Our climate is as good as Amer
ica affords. Our winters are dry and
pleasant, and our summers balmy and
cool. Our peoplo are industrious and
prosperous, and stand ready to wel-"
come and assist all new comere. Come'
one. come all, and live in a land that
"floweth with milk and honey." t "
The Bloomington (111.,) Pantograph
pertinently icmarks; "There is one
phase of instruction in which our pub
lic schools seem to be lacking. We al
lude to the manly deportment which
boys should be taugnt to observe to-'
ward girls. There is a certain rude-"
ness and coarseness noticeable jn the"
treatment of little girls by many boys' ;"
while at play, or while going to and'
from school, that is shocking. They' I rff
are forced into scuffles against their' ' '.
will with boys of superior strength, are " ''
kicked and cuffed, thrown to theV ' '
ground, and pelted with snow balls :'
and often compelled to listen to Ian-
guage that mantles their cheeks with . y
shame. It has ever been an objection i
to our public schools that they bring . 'z
the children of all classes together; the" - .'! ', - y
Vulgar' and the vicious with those of' jr:!-f ,
nicer sentiment and'training, subject--. r -ing
all to the evil influences and exam-: -j?
pie ot a part Many parents have felt -t
that they imperil the moral. as well as
the physical health of their children . e
in sending them to these schools. But
they have been willing to- take this
risk in view of the general excellence
of our school system? as well as their
inability to provide private-instruction.
Teachers should certainly strive as far
as they can to 'remove .this cause ot
complaint, and make our schools in
every respect as nearly perfect as they
are already in some. Boys should be
taug to regardythe person of girls as
sacred, to treatthem with deference
always, and in tvery instance of rude
ness toward a girl theroffender; should
