A HORSE ON HIM.

Get III Foat In It.
Some monthB ago a young man
whose name, might be "Billions" but
isn't, but who is known as "Yilliam
Weiser," among his associates
stbTted a little innocent correspon
dence with a yonng lady in our neigh
boring state. Now, the said y. m., is
a young man of ability, and usually
couched his espitles in language so
sweet and endearing that ere he was
aware of it he had spun the
webb of love around his enamorctta'a
heart over in Kansas, to that extent
that something must be done, and
done quickly, or else he would be
compelled to face the one whom he
had allured to loyc him, and you
Inow how, it is yourself gentle read
er ! But then all things must end,
so our young friend sought relief in
the Muses, wrote poetry, that would
not suffice, then he appealed to the
gods ot love, then to the gods of war,
but to no effect, then maddened with
the knowledge that he had got his
foot in it, and must drop out of light,
implored the "Grim Reaper" to en
fold him to his bosom for a brief peri
od, and from thie on, our friend must
be classed among the dead heroes,
and as such hip grave will be kept green
by the young lady who mourned him
as having departed to that ''bourne
from whence no traveler returns."
He died, and sad requiems were sung
over his grave. Poor, "Yilliam" dead
and gone, but, alas, his deeds do fol
low him. But then
"ITow bitter to court a Norse,
rheu die and WILL her your horse."
Then came, a supposed probation of
the last "Will" without the testament
The ground was gone over, the case
was being adjudicated in the judicial
mill, which like the mills of the gods,
grinds slow, but with exceeding mi
nuteness. An administrator de bonus
non was appointed and rather than
go West concluded to administer upon
the effects of the said departed who
in life had been his warmest friend.
All of a sudden- one dismally cold
and cheerless morning, the voung la
dy aforementioned, received a letter,
with the usual tokens
thereon, notifying her
tclligencc, that while out riding, her
"Beloved Yilliam" had been thrown
from the fiery charger and called to
his last acoount, but not so until his
dying request had been made known to
the administrator of his effects, which
in effect was a fake. The letter read
something like this:
Red Cloud, Neb., 1892.
On a certain date your friend, Mr.
So and So, while out horse back rid
ing for a few hours recreation, was
thrown from his horse two miles from
this city. His horse came rider
less, and immediately his friends fear
ing the worse, went in search of him.
He was found two miles from this
city in an unconscious condition,
brought to city, and returned to con
sciousness just long enough to di
vulge his last request which was,
"that you should have the horse
which caused his death." Please
come immediately and take the ani
mal. Yours &c,

Ob Grading the Country School.
The omnion prevails that the pupils of
graded city schools posess, adyantages
superior to those of tne pupils or tne
ungraded schools of the country dis
trict. The opinion is a just one; but while
the parent recognizes this truth he sel
dom goes farthero the extent of in
quiring for the cause. If he should bo
asked why the city pupil makes Jmore
rapid and more satisfactory progress his
answer would show that in some way,
more or less clearly defined, the system
of grading is in his mind connected with
this rapid progress and satisfactory re
sults, with, perhaps, the further notion
that the city teacher is superior in schol
arship and in methods.
Ab a matter of fact there is no essen
tial difference in the work done or in
the manner of doing it, between the
country school and the school of the
city. The same subjects ..are taught;
they are taught in the same way; the
children of both sorts of schools are
equally intelligent, apt, and attentive;
the teachers are of equal scholarship and
ability, as well trained and efficient.
The only difference between the
schools of the city and those of the coun
try is the less systematic manner in
which the country school is conducted;
In the country school the studies to be
pursued and the length of time devoted
to each, with the order in which they
shall be taken up, is left to the teacher
or to the whim of the papil, or to tne ca
mice of the individual parent, the en
tire administration of the affairs of the
school by the board ot trustees being of
a very general character.
On the other hand in the well organ
ized city Bohools all of these things are
tatotand and in
3 the steps to be
t.vAntottain that end, may be seen from
the beginning; what is to be done the

tendance to complete the entire course
of study prescribed by the authorities.
In the ungraded country scoool this is
not so; the child knows neither 'here he
is, where he should be at the end of the
term, nor where he may expect to be at
any future time in the course of his
school life. ...
Now there is no sufficient reason for
this haphazard, unbusinesslike playing
at educating our children in the country
dchools;a course of Btudy is as
practicable .in the "7.
school as in the city school;
a place to begin, a time to continue and
a place to stop in the etndy of any subject
