By way of n suggestion to the ulty
fathers we believe tliat it would lie a
good plan to resurrect the curfew or
dinance and onforou it. Much of tho
petty thieving and burglary could be
eliminated if boys were not allowed to
congregate on the streets at night.
The placo for children after nine
o'clock is at home unless they are with
their parents or some- older person.
It is much easier to prevent crime
thnn it is to prosecute.
Odd Fellews Surprised.
Thq Odd Fellows held a htrgo moot
ing -in. tho Woodmen hall Monday

ferred and the work of the degree
stair was exceptionally good. Tho
mooting was held in tho Wood in on

email to accommodate) the increased
membership. After duly considering
the question of building a new hall in
connection with the citizens, they
vvero about to adjourn when there
cuiuo a strange alarm at the door.
Upon investigation it was found that
the waiting room was full of ladies,
and a hasty examination showed that
they were tho wives of tile odd Fel
lows and members, of tho llebekahs.
There was an awful suspense' at first
as to tho motive for tills visit, but one
especially bright and observant mem
ber with s-otuctliinir of tile Sherlock
llolmos In his make up detected sev
eral large bundles partly concealed
about the visitors and, with an Intui
tion worthy of emulation, called out:
"All is well! They have brought some
thing to cat." It proved that he was
right. The Indies brought everything
in the way of palatable food, and of
course the mere men were delighted.
Tables were lUilckly prepared and the
banquet spread Grand Muster , Storey
and tirand Senior Waulcn Xcwlum-o
were sealed nt the head of the tabic,
in honor of their positions in the
grand lodge. Theie was plenty and
to spare ami the evening was one of
tho most ni"cysf al occasions ever
held in the city. The surprise was
complete, but Miom Odd Fellows fell
in with the idea in no time, ami in
about two minutes they acted as it
they had been accustomed to such
things all their Hvck The meeting
adjourned with the utmost good feel

bachelor members expressed the wish
that the ladles would surprise lliem

The plan contemplates forming an
Odd Fellows' association stock com
finny, organized with a capital of &!",
(100. Tho stock of tho company Is to
bo divided into $11,000 piofcrrcd and
$1 1,000 common. The preferred stock
will draw ft per cent Interest and the.
common stock will participate in the
earnings of thecompany. This amount
will erect a creditable building and
one in which the entire publics and
surrounding country will be Inter
ested. Its combined arrangement will
till a long felt need in this city. This
building will bo so arranged as to
seat, under ordinary circumstances,
(100 people, ami should occasion de
mand this can be increased to IfiOO.
Arrangements will bo made so that
the entire lower lloor can be thrown
into one room for the use of farmers'
institutes and other large assemblies
The Odd Fellows arc prepared to
raise a largo part of tills amount and
the general public is asked to partici
pate in eroding this building by pur
chasing shares in the company. Ulti
mately tho lodge expects to retire all
stock and become Hole ownor of Un

Tho general feeling at tliih time is
most favorable to such a projoot The
members of the farmers1 institute
huvo expressed a desiio to help erect

' The majority of wide-awake corn
growors realize tho advantago of tost
lug tho germination of tlieir scod corn
before planting. Tho "ear to row"
method of improving corn lias empha
sized the need of selecting seed corn
on the ear. Altho the apparatus re
quired for testing the germination of
ear corn need not be expensive, still it
is believed that there arc many who
hesitate to undertake this work thru
fear that it will involve the expend!
ttire of much time and labor. To
satisfy this demand and to aiouse a
greater interest in corn Improvement,
tho Nebraska Seed Laboratory has ar
ranged to make single our germination
tests of seed corn for Nebraska farm

however, can be made for one person.

Tho Senate lias been passing u mini-
hoc of bills but the house has been
less fortunate A few days ago when
the order of third leading was reached
a couple of bills met such instant and
brutal deaths that nut hois of other
bills on tlie calendar rushed the body
into general lliu to save further murd
ers. It is tho unanimous judgment of a
joint committee of both houses that
the Slate University should be moved
out of the city of Lincoln and located
on the largo tract of land whore the
State Agricultural Colleges aro situate.
This land is adequate in every way
and already belongs to tlie state.
There is ample room for the buildings
to bo laid out conveniently and with a
view to u beautiful campus. Street,

about twenty minutes between the
present and proposed sites. By the
joint report tlie medical college will
remain at Omaha.
Senator Placck has been named as
the chalrmau of a joint committee to
have charge of the bills and amend
