The best medicines in the
world cannot take the place of
the family physician. Consult
him early when taken ill. If
the trouble is with your
throat, bronchial tubes, or
lungs, ask him about taking
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. Then
take it or not, as he says.

The Orthopedic Hospital.
The Nebraska house has passed a
bill appropriating 330,000 for a build
ing and 337,000 for maintenance of the
Orthopedic hospital at Lincoln. This
is one of the most deserving institu
tions in the state. In the Orthopedic
hospital the maimed, crippled and de
formed children of residents of the
state receive free medical and surgical
treatment. A year ago the editor paid
a visit to this hospital and was greatly
impressed with the good work that
was being done. Among the patients
at that time were two little children
who had been so "bow-legged'' they
could hardly stand, but the doctors had
straightened their limbs to the normal
position. Other children had "club
feet" straightened, and still others
were being treated for all kinds of af
flictions. The children all seem happy
at the prospect of being restored to the
form which nature intended the-should

C. L. Cotting.
Charles O. Peterson and Annie Sand
berg were married in Des Moines, Iowa,
March 0, 18S3, and came to Webster
immediately afterward to make their
home. Last Saturday was the 35th
anniversary of their wedding, and a
large crowd of their relatives and
friends were invited to their home,
seven miles southeast of Ucd Cloud, to
partake of a sumptuousdinuer in honor
of the day. Many of those Invited
were kept away by the severe storm,
but those who attended enjoyed a
grand time. Mr. and Mrs. Peterson re
ceived numerous useful and valuable
presents of silverware as tokens of the
friendship and esteem of their guests.
We extend congratulations to Mr. and
Mrs. Peterson, and hope to live to
chronicle the celebration of the golden
milestone in their journey of wedlock,
twenty-ilve years since.

The walls of the assembly room have
been bordered with green burlap, held
in place by strips of moulding, aboc
There seems to be little doubt that
the bonds will carry. The next thing,
then, Is to get ready to build a good,
substantial building one that can be
thoroughly ventilated and equally
heated and lighted.
There Is another law before the legis
lature one that was strongly endor
sed by the State Teachers' Association
and for which the state superintendent
is working hard: The law providing
3700 annually for fifty high schools
that shall qualify for the normal high
school course. lied Cloud can qualify
by adding a fourth high school teacher
and purchasing some 3100 worth of
books on pedagogy. This law is quite
likely lo pass. If it does lied Cloud is
sure to take advantage of Its terms.
While no definite action has been
taken, it is practically certain that the
North ward building will be used for
the high school in ease the bonds carry
and the new building for the grades.
The high school law, offering free tui
tion to rural pupils, has passed both
houses and has been signed by the
governor. This measure will surely
greatly inciease the high school en
rollment. The revenue from this
source will doubtless be sullieient to
pay for the services of a fourth teacher
in the high school. The assembly
room Is too small for our present en
rollment. However, the partition can
easily be removed between that room
the olllce, this affording about 350 ad
ditional square feet. In faet, the en
tire North ward building is none too
large for the enrollment that the high
school can secure if we make the effort.
Above all things, we should have at
least two courses. We should not in
sist on all pupils taking the full Latin
course. We should have more history,
science, english and mathematics that
may be chosen instead of the Latin.
There is little doubt that next year
will mark a great change in the high
school, as well as in the grades.
