A report of the official worfc of re
lief accomplished in the Concmaugh
valley since the flood has just !ecn
pat into the hand of the mayor of
Philtnelphia by the state relief com
aiinion. It would appear that the to
tal expenditures to date in the Cone
jaaugh valley, Johnstown and vicinity
segregate two million tvo hundred
tfcaisand dollars. The number of
persons fed has varied from a maxi-
of thirty-two thousand to a pre
test commissary roll f seven thou
sand, while the number of distinct
claims to be passed upon involving
the interests of families or dpendent
relatives number nearly four thousand.
Four hundred portable houses and
two hundred to be built on the spot
are allready under way and the num
ber will be increased as fast as practi
cable. There has also been a large
distribution of shoes and clothing
and its form of relief will be continu
ed for some time longer to the ucedy.
The magnitude of the work in hand
may be realized from these facts and
figures and explain where it is that
the vast sums have gone to. It ia
that purpose of the state relief coin
mission to extend help in all needful
direction with the greatest dispatch
consistent with the best judgment
The problem confronting the commiss
ion is one certaiuly of delicacy requir
ing the utmost celerity and the
wisest discrimination. In there pur
pose to afford relief, not to make
good the lossci-for property dest'-.u-d.
the commission has adopted tin
reasonable course that could Le pur
sued in accordance with the wish of
nine-tenths of the people who cantri
buted to the fund. Omaha Bee.
F. H. Mellor, whose name is pre
sented bv Alinena Tvvuship for the
office of County Treasurer, is an hon
orable, popular and enterprising citi
zen of Almena. He came here from
Red Cloud, Neb., and started a Real
Estate office, afterwards accepting
the position of Cashier of the Bank of
Almena. His experience in financial
transactions and as book-keeper pre
eminently fits him foi the office. His
honesty aad intergrity cannot be
doubted. He has the entire support
of Almena Township, and has many
friends throughout the country, and
in presenting his name to the Repub
licans of Norton county we feel that
we are presenting the name of one in
whom no fault can be found. Ue is
a through Republican and worthy the
support of the party. If elected the
duties of the office will be faithfully,
carefully and honestly performed.
Almena Kan. Plaindealcr.
Mr. Mellor, the gentleman named
in tie above article is well known to
The Chief and citizens of Red Cloud
generally as a gentleman of fine abili
ty and unimpeachable character, and
in every way fitted to fill the office of
connty treasurer of any county. The
Chief would be pleased to see him
Bonrinated and elected feeling assured
that the people will never regret hav
ing placed him in such a responsible
position. Norton County, Kansas, is
a little out of our political jurisdiction
yet we can cheerfully and unsolicited
reccomend him to the people of that
county as a safe and honorable man to
place in the treasurer's office.
A Rich Ga Well.
While the corps of well-borers in
the employ of L. Strickler & Co., of
this place, were putting down a well
on the farm of Gustavus Anderson, in
Sparmouth precinct, this county, at a
depth of 373 feet suddenly and with
out warning the well auger and iron
tubing were blown out of the well with
tremendous force by a discharge of
natural gas, which lasted several
hours and subsided. The auger was
again put down, together with iron
tubing, but had scarcely gone down
five feet when again all the machin
ery was thrown into the air. Some
ihave suggested igniting the escaping
:gas, but the Swedes will not tolerate
.such a proposition, sajing they will
leave the settlement, as they fear it
will cause an earthquake. The find
has created xnach consternation and
cscitment among those in the pre
cinct. Omaha Bee.

A Ci:iC IT S r.5.TE FAIR.
Everything indicates that the coming
Nebraska state fair and annual expositfcm
to be held at Lii-coln, September 6 to 13
next, will be the most extensive, instruc
tive and entertaining of anything of its
kind ever held in the United States.
While Nebraska state fairs of late years
bare been universally conceded by all to
be anserpassed, it is the aim of the man
agement this year to eclipse all of its pre
decessors in all respects. The fact is re
cognized that all agricultural products in
Nebraska and the new west generally
were never so promising as the present
year. The atato board of agriculture
means to bring all to the front, and pre
sent to the world in full foree and to the
best possible advantage, all the resouces
of the state, The live stock interests
was never before so throughly aroused.
Speed men are also to the foro. A better
lino of horses than ever before will be on
hand. Secretary Furnas announces that
more accommodation are already engaged
than ever before, three to one. Some of
tho best herds of cattle and horses in
Iowa. Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconson
are already booked. Somo from New
York and Ohio. They seem to under
stand where they can show to a paying
advantage. The f 1,000 premium offered
for sweepstakes on cattle attracts atten
tion all over the country. Tho liborality,
too, of tho board in offering a like sum
of 1,000 for county collective exhibits,
will bring to the fair, especially all the
new counties in Nebraska many are al
ready booked for space. Besides the
solid agriculture factors, usual and essen
tial at fairs, the boards has mado extra
ordinary provisions for instructive and
interesting attractions ibis year. At
great expense, a flock of seven full grown,
full plumed South Africa ostriches will
bo on free out door exhibition each day
o-i tho fair grounds. Not of tho cooped
u;. menagerie sort, but something nice
and fresh from ostrich breeding farms
Mad. Marantette, with the finest trained
and educated horeo in the world, "Wood
lawn," will be on hand each day day.
Also she will drvio on the race track tho
at..-t donblu team in the world. She
has mado 1 :34 1-2. There will be rare
and instructive attractiens. During the
evening of the fair the city of Lincoln
will show tho finest trade'3 spectacular
display and pyrotechnic exhibition ever
produced in the west. This will be ac
companied with a reproduction, revised,
corrected and improved presentation of
tho King Tartarrax pageant, unsurpass
ed even by the famed Veiled Fiophet or
Mardi Gras. Altogethor it is repeated,
tho coming fair a t Lincoln moans to stand
without a rival.
In oldcu timed they used to punch
holes in peoples tongues that were con
victed of lying. If that custom was in
vogue at the this era, wonder how the
editor of the BIG 8 sheet would be fix
ed for tongue? It would be "more
bo1'" than his porus plasters, after his
long winded desseration on George
Warren and A, J. Kenney la9t week.
It was a perfect tissue of falsehoods.
A man who sails under the somewhat
euphemistic sobriquet of "lawyer-doc-tor-cditor"
ought to be a little more
careful deaciple to truth veracity, Oh!
well, he ought to be excused, bacaute

Of Interest to School -era and Fa
traas of oar Public Sekoola.
The school officers of this county have
been requested to meet at the county
&eat August 9th. It is earnestly desired
that all, who can possibly do so, will re
spond to this ealL Many matters of vital
importance to our schools are to be con
sidered at this time, among others that
of the adoption of a uniform course of
study for Webster county.
Many of the patrons and some of the
school officers themselves fail to recog
nize the full extent of authority which (
the law confers upon the district boards
of this state.
The school officers of the various dis
tricts are the only parties who can legal
ly adopt a uniform course of study.
State and county superintendents can
only recommend the adoption of such a
We believe that more satisfactory re
sults will be reached if we so organize, so
arrange oar schools, that the connty
superintendent may have more direct
supervision over the school work of each
child in the county. This may be accom
plished by the adoption of a uniform
system of country school work. We do
not mean by this that all text books in
the county be changed this we cannot
afford to do nt this time, neither is it
necessary. If we desire children of a
certain nge or grade of advancement to
learn about the "Battle of Lexington" it
is not necessary that they learn this from
tho same text book. If we wish them
taught rapid and correct methods for
multiplying fractions, it is not necessary
that they solve the same problems but
they bo tanght correct principles. The
same facts, the same principles, may be
learned from different books, from differ
This system of uniform county work
has proven a great success in many
counties. A very brief synopsis of the
plan of work is as follows: First, each
school district in the county adopts a
course of study and classification record.
Second, classification blanks are sent to
each teacher at the opening of school.
Third, the teacher after completing or
ganization and classification of schools,
makes a record of it in classification book
and sends a duplicate of this record to
county superintendent, thus enabling
this officer to suggest, at the beginning
of the term, a remedy of defects in class
ification etc. Most of our schools begin
at same date, a superintendent cannot
visit eighty different schools at the begin
ing of their respective terms. If he
visit two each day five days out cf each
week, some will be closing before he
reaches them. Besides this leaves no
time for necessary office work. Fourth,
at the close of the term, the teachers
enters a record of the entire terms work,
this work must accord with plan precrib-
ed by course of study, a duplicate of this
record made at close of term, a also to
be sent to superintendents office.
When a pupil has finished s ceetain
grade of the coarse of study, and passed
a satisfactory examination, said pupil
should be granted a certificate of promo
tion. Pupils finishing entire course to
receive a common school diploma.
We desire the public generally to
carefully consider this matter. Our
schools are doing a great deal of good
bnt we may make them more efficient,
more effective. The course of -toby
which will be brought before school
officers in August will be so arranged as
to comprehend the essential things re
quired for a common school education,
Valuable time is now being wasted on
unimportant things, some of our pupils
learn about all the cities axd villages in
Africa but leave school unable to read an
ordinary newspaper article intelligently,
unable to write a legible letter. This is
all wrong, the selection of studies should
not be left to chance ox whim of the pupil
We need a definite plan of work for eaeh
term, an objective point to reach under
this plan of uniform work. "The new
teacher" will not waste several days up
setting former organization and finally
commence just where the last teacher did
the first day of last term; but, having a
complete reeord of work done by each
pupil and by each class, will proceed with
outline of work as laid down in course of
study. E. J. Kino.
