there was "a fair-sized" audience" at
the M. E. church last Sunday mor

seat filled, standing room at a pre
mium, and many went away nnable to
even see on the inside of the building.
"Fair-sized." I should say so.
Children's day at the various
churches in the city was well observed
on last Sunday morning. The Meth
odist ehurch was handsomely decorat
ed, and the exercises were of a fair
character. The Congregationalist
church, as well as the Baptist church
was elaborately decorated. The
Christian society held their services
in the Odd fellows hall and was cf a
very pleasant and agreeaMe character.

Chairman Tomlinson reports every

the largest crowd that ever assembled
in Nebraska will be here. Our home
team is making every effort to become
efficient iu all that goes to make up
a good company, and will make it
interesting for all who come. Let
evcr encouragement be given to our
fire boys, so that they will have as
little to contend with as possible in
making their arrangements for the
entertainment of the state associa
tion. The postmaster general makes the
following sggestion to ahe public:
Print your name and address on the
left hand corner of all mail matter.
This will insure its immediate return
if improperly addressed or insuffi
ciently paid, and if not called for at
its destination it can be forwarded
without going to the dead letter of
fice." It is pcihaps superfluous to
state that this suggestion from such
high authority should be heeded, and
all know that this office excels in
in such work and does it the chsap-
A newspaper man in this state
brought suit against forty-three men
who would not .pay their subscription
and obtained judgment in every
case for the amount of each claim.
Of these, twenty-eight made out af

the law allowed, thus preventing at

of the supreme court, th;y were ar

under 6um of $3000, each. All but
six gave bond, while six went to jail.

The Helmet talks about the com
missioner system being much batter
than the supervisor system. We
take it that Mr. Plumb is not posted.
The facts are tr.at nine cases out of
every ten the supervisor system is far
superior to the other system as it gives
more equal representation to the coun
ty, and much less chance for jobbery.
During the life of the commissioner
system in Webster county a few pre
cincts received all of the benefits ac
cruing and others never did get an
appropiation. The commissioner sys
tem is a fraud and imposition on the
people where a fair representation is
wanted. The supervisor system is aj
little more expensive hut preferable
to the other.

Wc are sad and lonely now.
Since Bid. Charley passed away.
He left this vale of tears,
Just after break of day.
In his sickness, what he suffered.
There is no human tongue can tell.
Until death at last released him.
And took from those he Ioed so well.
From our ranlu wc now will miss him.
And our watchful tender care.
We can never more caress him ,
Nor fill his vacant chair.
I hope and pray that up in heaven,
Dwelling with the God of love.
We may join our brother Charley.
In his peaceful home aboe.

At the close of the final examina

school year just closed a premium was
awarded to the pupil of each division
whose general average was highest in
his class. The following are the

Alex. Bentley B "

Without any desire to slight the
last three mentioned I believe it my
duty to make special mention of Wil
lie Letson, whom I regard as a remark
able good student, one whom a faith
ful teacher cannot fail to appreciate
highly. Willie seems to Lave a
knowledge of the true value of an
education, and works diligently to
acquire it. He posesses more than
average mental abilities, having keen
analytic powers. To be brief, his
school life promises a prosperous and
happy mature age.
Those pupils of the high room
those general average reached 80 per
cent or above will have their names
published next week.
