At tho closo of tho teachers' institute
last Saturday resolutions wore adopted
in which tho ronomination of Mrs. Eva
J. Cass as county superintendent was
made a promlnont feature. Tho teach
of Webster county, with tho exception
of a small per cont, may not bo eligablo
voters on account of their sox, however
that Is no reason why thoy should not
be judges ot tho competency and ef
ficacy of a candidato for that oflico, and
tho wishes of tho teachers should not
in this instance bo overlooked.
A universal sentiments exists among
Nebraska pooplo, irrespective of politi
cal belief, that thoro should bo aomo
demonstration of respect tendered tho
First Rcgituont on its return homo.
A movement to this end has already
bogun at Lincoln and it should rocolvo
tho hearty co-operation of tho ontiro
stato. The reception ns planned will be
held in Lincoln some two or throo
weeks after tho return of tho regiment
and transportation, onlertainmont,otc.
will bo free of chango to them. Tho
object of putting it olT for two or
thrco week after their arrival is that
thoy may first visit homo nnd friends.
It is proposed to givo tho boys
a reunion on tho camp grounds from
which thoy marched n year ago, and
where veterans of tho Grand Army of
tho Republic will bo waiting to receive
them, and also tho Second nnd Third
Regiments, together with tho Stato
National Guard acting as a guard of
honor. Webster county has sovoral
boys in the First Regiment and why
not help this move along to givo them
a fitting reception, or hotter yet, got
up ono for their benefit shortly after
Candidates for oflico aro springing up
about as thick as toad stools around a
stump. Of courso they all havo their
own ideas about their chances of re
ceiving tho nomination and of finally
being olectcd. It is indeod amusing to
stand around and hear them toll of
the running qualities in an election,
from tho republican who thinks ho can
carry Potsdam without a strugglo to
tho populist who thinks ho can carry
the Second ward of this city by a large
majority. Now we will not montion
tho names of any candidates as yet for
fear of "raising somo one's dander"
but will say that wo havo rosorred a
few spaces at the head of our editorial
pago which are well suited for an
nouncements, which can bo had for tho
small sum of livo dollurs each should
candidates desiro to inform tho pooplo
between now and tho timo set for hold
ing the convention that thoy want
somo oflico. Wo havo about come to
tho conclusion that a newspaper man
has no business springing candidates
on nn unsuspecting publio and so havo
decided to lot them announco them
selves. If you nro a candidato for any
oflico announco yourself in stylo and
after that tho newspaperman will havo
an opportunity of saying something
nice about you without being accused
of springing candidates or trying to
nominato tho whole ticket.

Weather of the State.
General summary of tho weather
and crop conditions over tho sialo as
reported by tho state observer at Lin
coln: Tho pitsl week has been warm and
wet in eastern counties and dry in
western. Tho averago dally tempera-
tuiMexe.ni's Iiih varied from 2 degrees
in tho eastern pari of the stale to less
than 1 degree in tho western.
Tho rainfall has exceeded uhalf inch
incenteral and caste rn countries and
was exceedingly heavy In Dodge Wash
ington, and Burt counties, ranging,
from 4 to nearly 7 inches. In most of
the western counties tho rainfall was
less than a quarter of an inch.
The continued dry weather in tho
western country has been exceedingly
unfavorable for small grain. OaU and.
wheat cousideraly injured in that part
of the stato and many fields aro ripen
ing prematurely. In some counties tho
grass is drying up. Tho post week has.
boen oxceeptionally favorably to crops
in most of the eastern counties. In the
counties whero the houvest rainfalls
occurred corn suffered considerably
from washing, continued-wet soil and
lack of cultivation. Wheat and oats are
heading out and ryo is beginning to
ripen. Corn is backward and small in
all section, but stand is good and tho
crop healthy. It has not yet been in
jured by tho drought in southwestern
u 'Unties and litis made liuo growth in
eastern counties during tho past week.
Generally the corn is freo from weeds,
and tho second cultivation is well
advanced. But in the region of heavy
rainfall whero cultivation has beeu
detained, tho fields are becoming soma
what weedy. Potatoes are growiuc
voiy well and aro now genorally in
bloom. Cherries nro ripo and the orop
is good, Alfalfa is mostlj cut for tho
the first timo and tho crop is light.
Sugar boots aro growing woll.
