Albert H. Keeney, Republican nomi

Has First Grade Certificate.
Some unprincipled Pop politicians
xare circulating a story that Mrs. Caster
does not hold a first grade certificate
.-and is therefore not eligible to the
office, of county superintendent The
story is a lie pure and simple. Mrs.
Caster has since last August held a
ilrst grade certificate issused by tho
oouuty superintendent of Hitchcock
couuty. She also holds a first grade
-certificato dating back several years.
:Siate Superintendent McBrieu recora
cneuded that teachers desiring to
qualify for county superintendents
-should bo examined before superinten
dents holding state tirat grades certifi
saUjs. The name of the couny su
perintendent of Webster county did
not appear iu the list of those hold
ing state first grade certificates sent
out by State Superintendent McBrien,
therefore Mrs. Caster went before
Jih superintendent of Hitchcock
eouuty, who was so qualified, aud
passed a successful examination.

Anna Gray In Trouble.
Miss Anna Gray, who came here
from Kansas City several months ago
aud opened a dressmaking shop, has
had more or less trouble since her ar
rival. She had not been here very
long when stories derogatory to her
character began to circulate. These
were denied and documents produced
to prove that she was all right. Later,
while she and her friend, Mrs Howard,
were still occupants of the Moranville
building, someone decorated the front
of the building with over ripe eggs.
When Mrs Howard returned to her
home in Kansas City, Miss Gray se
cured a room at the home of Ward
Hayes, aud remained there up to
about three weeks ago Mr. and Mrs.
Hayes went away on a visit and when
they returned Miss Gray had moved
to the home of L. E. Tait, and, as it
appears, took with her quite a quan
tity of wearing appnrel, dishes, knek
kuacks etc., belonging to the Hayes
household. She had not been at Mr.
Tait's very long until Mrs. Tait began
to mis things. Yesterday afternoon
Mrs. Hayes swore out a warrant for
the arrest of Miss Gray, a search war
rant was procured and Sherifr Mc
Arthur, in company with the interest
ed parties, went to the home of Mr.
Tait and placed Mis Gray under
A search of her effects revealed the
missing articles and a good many
others that had not been mKsed As
the owners of the stolen goods re
covered most of their property and
Miss Gray put up security for tin- bal
ance, she was not taken before the
court, but was given a chance to leave
town, which she did today.
Old Friends In California.
The following items concerning
former Webster county people are
from U. G. Knight's new paper, the
San Pedro (Cal) Daily News:
"Mr. Jncob Kindscher, a wealthy
Nebraskan and an old friend of the
Newa e litor, was a visito in the city
today looking over the prospects and
renewing acquaintances. About a
month ago he came to this state for
good, locating in Redlands He was
so well pleased with San Pedro that
he will come again and may invest in
some desirable real estate a little
"Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Hunter, Mrs.
II. Horn and another lady from Long
Beach, are iu the city today visiting
friends and looking after their land
estates here. Some months ago Mr,
Hunter was induced by Mr. Hanson,
the real estate dealer, to invest some
money hero and the result is he has
been very much pleased, as it has in
creased in valuo almost a hundred
fold since tho purchase. Mr. Hunter
is a very desirable citizen and The
News hopes to see him a Sun Pedro
resident yet "

of John Rutledge. got a very bad fall
Monday evening which biuised and
cut his face and knocked tho breath
from his body. Iu tho alley back of
his father's house, in the west part of
town, is a telephone polo with a guy
wire nttached. Tho little fellow

life," on the guy wire, and just us he
was ready to make tho slide he either

Every citizen wants our school to
be as efficient as he can mike them.
There is one thing that is a possibility
in the near future that would do
much toward this end -give each
grade teacher one grade instead of two.
At present south ward school contains
all the grades up to the High school.
'1 ho ideal plan would be to build a new
school houso near the north line of
the south ward, and place the kinder
garten and the first seven pradrs in
this building Over these teven
grades and kindergarten place eieht
teachers. This would leave the high
school and the eighth grade in the
north ward building. Over the high
school and tho eighth grade we could
place the remaining four teachers In
this way we would increase the effici
ency of the grades fully 40 per cnt.
The only additional cost would be a
new building in the south ward near
the d viding Hue. Since a new buil 1
ing must soon be built anyway, the
above change would really not involve
Mrs. Caster is electioneerin? this
week In the meantime Miss Beck
with has charge of room 3. The en
rollment iu this room is now GO. All
the seating space is already occupied,
but still two pupils hax no desks. If
some three or four magnanimous citi
.ens of the north ward, who live near
the line dividing the wards, would
send their children to the south ward
instead of the north, they would ren
der a service to the schools Sixty
pupils, aud these in two different
grades, are too many for a single
teacher, no matter how strong she
may be. Forty to th room U enough
for good result. When the number
is greater than that the efficiency of
the work is decreased.
President Crabtree, of the Peru Nor
mal, informs us in a circular letter
that the Red Cloud high school has
been placed on the accredited list.
This means that graduates of Red
Cloud High school can complete the
course at the state normal iu two
years instead of four.
At a class meeting of the Juniors
held some time ago, the following of

Roy Whitaker, treasurer. A new
constitution was framed and the class
is runuing iu fiue order.
