The following claims were rejected:
Stole Same Tools Twice.
Last Friday night Ernest Moranville

warrant charging him with having
stolen ii grip from Doe Nelson contain
ing veterinary tools valued tit SCO.
Ho was takon to county jail, where
ho confessed to tho theft and told

Money in the Dairy Business.
That there is money to be made iu
the dairy business is shown by the
results obtained by our old friend
Sam Liudsoy. He has the cream check,
which ho received for the past ten
mouths, during seven mouths months
of which he sold the cream from live
cmv.s and the balance of the time of
only throe cows, and at that his chucks
foot up to more than three hundred
dollars, beside which he has had cream
and butter for his own family and the
increase from the cows.
Switzerland, to which many point
ti.s having a model government, has
ideas in the conduct of public schools
which might well be adopted by this
country. In the city of lieriie, for
instance, a permanent exhibition for
school hygiene lias been established.
In the city of Hasei the hi bora 1 School
union has adopted a resolution doinan
ing obligatory instructions in swim
ming for upper classes of the public
schools, the erection of school sanitar
iums and tho completion of an insti
tute for school physicians.
Much one of those improvements
moans that Switzerland is taking care
of the bodies, as well as tho minds of
the children of that country. Kaeh
one means that instead of pushing the
childien through their hooks, orov ding
them from grades high school as rapid
ly as possible and high .school into tilt
ing world, care is taken of their physi
cal well'aio. of their general health,
comfort and safety. Switzerland 'sovi
dent purpose is to give to the world
young men and women who are well
rounded iu something beside algebra
and geography The natural hurry
up methods of America mark our
school work. Too much attention is
paid to the. task of making graduates
and too little to the infinitely greater
and more impnrtaut' duty of making
men and women. Perhaps we may
borrow some of the Swiss ideas. I5y
all means lot u-. absorb a higher re
gurd for the boys and gods than we
possess now. Unooln Star.
Wo. wonder what would happen if
tho .school board of lted Cloud should
attempt such improvements iu school
methods, even if we had plenty of room
iu the school building. Would not
Some one circulate a "petition protest

ments, or tint enforced baths? Or
would there be found enough public

clouded, making it an ideal day for a
football game. boul three hundred
spectators witnessed the game. Music
was furnished by tho Citizen's Concert
The high school got the Icic'volV and
the game commenced. I hiring the tirst
half neither side scored, nor made any
decided advance, the high school boys
surprising everybody by their ability
to hold their heavy opponents. Tho
second half was much harder fought.
! Some disputed points left the final out
come In doubt in the minds of many of
this spectators, oven ufter the game was
over. The score was ollicially given
after the game as .' to 0 in favor of the
business college, but this was later
amended to 0 to 0, on account of what
was at first called a safety play by
Henry Pharos fortius high school hnv-
ing been a touchback. The game was
spoiled for the spectators by an almost
continuous rag chewing performance.
Carl Jurnberg. the regular center of
the high school team, was accidentally
shot through the leg while outhiiuting

In Kansas and Iowa the companies

said, the railway commissioners have
no authority over telephone linos. hi
