The State Itiailtate for Ferele Jllw
ded Children a Shccm.
About four years ago the State of
Nebraska made an appropriation for
the erection and maintenance of the
above named institution to be located
at Beatrice, Nebraska, for the avowed
purpose of taking care of and the due
training of the feeble minded chil
dren of the state, of which there is a
large number, and up to the date of
the opening of the Beatrice institu
tion absolutely without the proper
means of education. It is indeed
wonderful to note the great work ac
complished by the very efficient of
ficers and teachers of this truly no
ble institution. When the institute
was first opened for the receival of
children, ranav were taken in who
had but little knowledge of this
world and with but little hope of
much improvement- Yet Superin
tendent Armstrong aLd his able corps
of assistants. Jiiss Wood, matron; and
the Misses McLain, Bosbyshell, La
Salle. and Mrs. Baiterfield, teachers,
have, by persistent and self-sacrificing
efforts "brought order oat of
chao?," as it were. Many of those
self-same children, are today on the
highway to succees as far as self
sustaining capabilities are necessary,
and many are iakin; a good common
school education, while of course,
there are some whose cases are com
paratively hopeless, but they, as well
as all have a home in the institution
equal, if not better, than their wn,
and are shown the most tender care
and consideration by the officers,
teachers and employes' so much so
that thev are loath to leave the buil
ding when the time comes for them
to return home for vacation. Jt is
certainly a great and noble mission
on the part of those whose minds are
deeply engrossed in the good work of
trying to "keep those who cannot
keep themselves.'' The state should
be very liberal in this regard and in
stead of persuing a parsimonious pol
icy, should endow her state institu
tions in a liberal manner thereby giv
ing aid to those who are thrust upon
the tender mercies of a cold and un
feeling world to do or act in the same
capacities of their more fortunate
brethren. At the end of the school
term, June 27, the following pro
gram was rendered by the children in
as able a manner as will be seen in
some of our more advanced common
schools, and when taken into consid
eration that many of the participants
had to be trained for months on the
most simple problem, it is still more
wonderful that they have made such

It seems that the story of budded tree is still

front C.W. Gurney, or Dixon coanty, aen.
tells the whole story, as it comes to me from all
sources. It is a fraud, but what can it do about
it? If I should tell the taleeach week, in an the
agricsltoral papers, how many victims would
read it, or heed it?
Yet. something may be done by those wlio do
read, to stop such rank swindling. Where real
budded trees are delivered, perhaps nothing can
be done, as the people who beiiere, or who are
tftj.iy to believe, that budded trees are best,
must he permitted to buy them at any price
agreed on, up to ten dollars per tree. But make
eat deliver budded trees, or advise toe purea

defence, as it is a mere question of iasaection
of the trees in court. I write tnis at tnis tone,
