Loesos by tho Storm.
As far as we have been able to learn
the damage by the double headed bliz
zard of last week has been quite exten
sive over this county aud in the ad
jacent counties in Kansas. Thc fol
lowing are a few who have lost as far
as we could ascertain:
Mr. Moody, on Indian Creek, S head
A. J. Means, 50 hogs.
Capt. Munsell, 11 beau of hogs.
Mr. Lovell, 30 hogs.
W B Roby's los- was thirteen head.
Jrs McKinney a number of sheep.
Mr Chas Besse six head of cattle.
Mr H A Iloward one calf.
J S Parkcfi lost two heifers and elev
P DeLaney one hog,
D C Smelser lost nineteen head of
Robt Rownds five hogs.
S Lindsey lost seven head of hogs.
Jerry Orndorfflost two or three head
Winna Palmer lot a cow.
Ed Farkes lost seven head of hogs.
Marsh Parker, of Salem lost a large
number of bogs.
The above is only a partial list, but
we presume that nearly every other
larmer in the countv lost something in
the way of stock. It was certainly the
hardest storm ever known in this sec
tion of Nebraska, and wc are not anx
ious to have it repeated. The ls?es
from the storm will in all probability
foot up pretty heavily.

The law states plainly in what
branches of study a teacher must be
examined in order to obtain a certfi

where it comes to nay what shail be

grades of society that our lawmakers
ee the need of educating the children
