The pupils of tho high school havo
organized a literary society. Tho first
meeting was hold last Friday night.
At this mooting tho following officers
wore elected: President, Estoy Smel
sor; Secretary, Sheridan Phares; Ser
geant at Arms, Georgo Boal. Many of
tho students aro deeply interested.
A tennis club composed of both
boys and girls lias also been or
gauizod. Two courts aro now boing
prepared on tho north west comer of
the school grounds. Mr. Tait has
kindly donated tho club two nots.
Principal Mamie Ellis has been out
of school a part of the week on ac
count of a siege of tho mumps. On
Wednesday Inez Ellis took her place
in tho high school while Iono Albright
took charge of tho grammar room.
In accordance with a clause in tho
school laws which states that pupils
may enter school only whon thoro is
already an existing organized class
into which they aro fitted to entor
tho school board has authorized tho
primary teachers to excludo pupils
who can not conform to this condi
tion. Under tho present arrangement
pupils will be kept in tho kiudcrgar
ton but one year. Pupils who entor
lato in tho year, of course, can not bo
promoted. So there is nothing gained
by admitting a pupil lato in tho
spring. To do so would moan that tho
primary teacher must organize a new '
class. This, however, would tako half
tho time that should bo dovotod to the
pupils, who havo been in school all
year. Tho toachors want to bo as leni
ent as possible toward patrons. But
they don't feel as though it is just to
organize special class. All who begin
by tho iirst of February can bo cared
for. This plan will mako it possiblo
to start the beginners at any time
from Soptombor to February thus
throwing open the kindergarten five
months of the niuo. All tho patrons
havo been very thoughtful. All seem
to understand tho motive back of this

Editor E. P. Fassett of tho Arling
ton Review-Herald, who was thtj guest
of Row Goorgo il. Rico last weok, in a
letter to his homo paper had consider
able to say about Red Cloud. In re
plying to Mr. Fassett's insinuations
regarding tho placo which tho memory
of Hon. William McKeighan holds in
tho hearts of the pooplo of Rod Cloud
and Webster county, wo need only to
point to tho handsome monument in
the Rod Cloud cemetery, erected to
his memory "by tho commou people."
Wo also wish to corroat another of his
statements that "Jerry Simpson is
said to bo wandering ovor the prairies
of tho Sunflower stato." As Mr. Simp
son has been dead for soveral month",
and notico of his death was published
in tho leading papers of tho land, it
mast havo been Jerry's ghost that Mr.
Fassett had roforouco to. Following
is what Mr. Fassett has to say about
"A good many years ago thoro roved
ovor thoso barren prairies of Nebraska
a Sioux chief named Red Cloud, whose
war-llko disposition caused tho Fed
oral troops a groat deal of trouble.
Of courso the old fellow is dead now,
and his name is bolug perpetuated in
