FRIDAY. APRIL 18. 1884
Every republican in Webster county
should make an effort to attend the
primaries on Saturday, so that .-atisfac-tory
results may be had. It is neces
sary that a full delegation from each
precinct be selected to the county con
vention on Monday, April 21, so that
we may have a fair representation to
select our delegates to the state con
vention. Then let every republican
turn out Saturday to the primaries.
The County Convention.
On Monday, Apiil 2, will occur the
republican county convention fr the
purpose of selecting delegates to the
tate and district conventions. This
convention should be carried on
Kjuarely and satisfactorily to the re
publicans of Webster county. Tin:
Cjui:f hopes that a full delegation from
each precinct will be sent in. Don't tor
get the date, Monday, April 21.

Verily, this :a a strange world we in
AVhntTlie Others Say.
The article which appeared in Tun
Chief of the 28th, from Blue Hill,
seems to invite an answer. In the
first place, why did we say professors
for the two here and one allied Cloud
Simply because they are professors in
spite of the dime literature which at
tracted the attention of the fair writer
from Blue Hill. Tis strange that the
people were so busy they could not at
tend a teachers' association in their
own town, but still should set a spy to
watch the teachers from abroad. The
fair damsel who wrote that article
seems to be quite free with the funds
of the mite society of that place per
haps she is treasurer. But, however,
any little sum which can be sent to us
will be greatfully received, as a few
more trips like that will soon bankrupt
us. As regards the dinner, perhaps we
don't know a good meal from a poor
one, but we think the next time we go
to Blue Hill we will take our corn
bread and sorghum molasses with us
so as to be sure to have something de
cent to eat. We will give in to the
writer as to the scolloped oysters, as
we think probably the was one of the
charming waitresses who attended to
lhe wants of the party fiom Inavale,
and probably knew more about the
"get up" of the dinner than we did.
That the oy?ters were scolloped we are
sure; as, although we got no oysters,
we got something which very 'much
resembled a small scollop. However,
if we had it to do over again we would
much rather pay the price and let the
landlord eat the dinner, or perhaps the
writer of the other article. That the
judges of the debate did not decide ac
cording to the argument is a fabrica
tion equal to those of Eli Perkins and
need no further comment. That there
were three others in the room who
would have decided the other way we
do not believe, Mr. Watkins included
among them. That Mr. Smith violated
the mips of rhetoric more than Mr.
Watkins did is not so. Both spoke rap
idly and in as short a time as possible,
and if either violated the rules vcrv
aiuch they are to be pardoned. Anil
as to the effrontery of Mr. Smith in
claiming another speech, after the
base ungcntlemanly way in which Mr.
Watkins handled the subject, intro
ducing a new line of argument which
had but little bearing on the subject,
he certainly is to be excused if, indeed,
there is anything to excuse. But in
lear of bringing up further controversy
in regard to this matter we will dose,
signing as beforo A Teacher.
