In a Dead !Ian' Pocket.
Stephen A. Price was a man who
was liked and looked up to by all who
knew him. He was honest, kind and
true, a warm friend and a good neigh
bor. The boys and girls all liked him
because he never forgot that he had
been young once himself. He be
came rich, was made major of New
York City, and lived to be very old.
He lost his life in a steamboat disas
ter. Those who found his dead body
found a scrap of printed paper in his
pocketbook. It was so worn with oft
reading that they could scarcely make
out the words, but this was what was
upon the paper:
Keep good company or none.

employed, attend to the cultivation
of your mind.

They are building wire fences on some
of their extensive ranches on the plains
and charging them with electricity by a
stationary engine. An exchange gives
the following account of such a fence in
Carson Co., Kansas: "On Saturday a
party hnd a demonstration of its effec
tiveness. On one side of the fence stood
some dozen or fifteen steers, on the
other side stood one alone. He under
took to break through and go over to the
majority. He had an idea he was tack
ling a buzz saw when he struck the
smooth wire fence. Well, sir, he jumped
like he was lilt at once by forty million
hornets, and witli his tail coiled over
bis back he wheeled and only struck the
ground in high places. Then the fifteen
made a dash to join and follow him.
One by one they rubbed the electric
fence and as fast as they did they jumped,
bawled, kicked, wheeled and sailed off
as though they had urgent business at the
north pole and only had a few hours in
which to make it. That electric fence is
a stunner it is the eighth and greatest
wonder of the world. Not one of the
cattle was hnrt, but not one of them will
go near that fence again."

The school officers of the different
school district of Webster county,
Nebraska, met in the school house at
lied Cloud, this 0th day of August,
1SS9, and ivere called to order by Mis j
Eva J. King, county superintendent
of public instruction.
31iss King then stated the object
of c lling us together, which was to
examine the course of study, and
classification of country school, recom
mended by Geo. B. Lane, State Su
perintendent of Public Instruction.
with a view to getting this meeting
to recommend the different school
boards of the county co adopt the
There were 37 school officers pre
sent, divided as follows; 7 moderators,
19 directors aud 11 treasurers, repre
senting 22 different school districts.
Oliver McCall was elected chair
man and G. P. Gather secretary.
Miss King now addressed the meet
ing, showing the many advantages of
the above named course and classifica
tion, heartily recommending this ad
ODtion hv the school boards through
out the county.
A committee of five on resolutions
was then formed, consisting of. Oli
ver McCall, G. W. Hummell,
U: C. Cox, J. B. Cleghorn and G. P.
The committee reported the follow
ingr esolutions, which were unani
(Resolued that after having examin
ed the course of study and classifica
tion of country schools, which is re
commended by the state superinten
dent of public instruction, and heard
heir merits discussed this meeting
does urge and recommend their adopt

throughout the county.
'Resolved tint this meeting be
lieves it the imperative duty of all
school hoards tli-.t adopt the above
course of study aud classification of
country schools, to require their
teachers to carry them out in full, the
school board sustaining and assisting
them in doing the same.
(Resolved that we tender a vote of
thanks to Miss King, our county sup
erintendent for the very thorough,
efficient at.d energetic manner in
which she has filled her office, feel

pronouncing it also the best. It contains
n most graphic and vivid narration of
that wonderful dinstor, thtory of uhich
will not grow old for many a lonij year.
When the first news of tha TohnHtovru
dias'ter came, everybody disbelieved that
so horrible a story could be truu. But
each day brought freh horrors to the
public notice, till it was universally re
marked that for once tho first r.ccoi'.nt
had not been exaggerated, but even an-.
de.-estimled. Thh is so rarely tho case
that it is a fact worthy of notice in the
history of journalism. Everywhere
thronhout the country the hearts beat
cf sympathy, and kindness showed itself
in the most generous contributions,
which soon rolled up into millions.
Even the Chicago fire failed to stir np
tiie same rtasiounto fellow-feeling,
because there, althoiign ilia lo.s or" prop
erty was great, that of life was coxn
parativly small. Wo cannot but believe it
will be long ere this profound interest
sinks into indifference. This permanent
record will be. welcome by the people of
the land, north, south, east, west, and
wherever people can read . Tho author
seems to have taken pains in writing
an accurate as well as dramatic story,
and tho whol tiling is presr.ited with a
vigor and life liketieas which brings it
home to every heart. Mr. Ferris has
studied the whole matter with great care,
and serves it to the public in admirable
style. The book ii well made, and has
forty-eight handsome illustrations and
522 pages. AVo believe that any one who
has an opnortnnify should seize the
chance to purchase this thrilling work.
