one of elllciency. The only way to

the people and let him work for bis

the piuvhaso of an oriental rue; from
n man with a foreign accent is most
plciisliiK especially when the price
seems so very low. To secure a real
work of art direct from the artist him
self is very alluring but it is most dis
tressing to learn afterwards that the

of the home store for about half what
the artist asked for it. Most of these

If the hiruc cities all over the
country esert themselves lo secure
conventions of all kinds why should it
not pay the smaller cities'. If a hun
dred people come fiom other parts of
thK county to incut in convention they
cannot help but notice the thrift, the
conveniences, the good stores and
publi.' buildings and consciously or i
unconsciously Uiey will entertain tlie
ideu of coming again. A suggestion
once planted gels to work and winks
all tliu the time. Wo ought to use
every olforL to net every convention
possible to meet in this city. This
policy is one ol tlie very best advertis

Among other "free" editorials sent
out by "press correspondents" wo re

tablished in this country which seeks

under the guise of news mid free.
Somewhere in the article ho weaves in

Nebraska oiitfht to leain a lesson
from the distressing events that have
lately taken place at the state peni
tentiary. The fact that throe men
could jjot away even during a storm is
proof that the Institution is not prop

believe that the more human methods
of handllnj,' tlieptlsoners are lo blame
for the escape of criminals, Hint they

ciidiiiik'er his life day after day for
foity-llve dollars a month. When the
crisis comes he is bound to look the
other way. So many criminals have
escaped of late years, so ninny people
believed Hint those men would escape,
it is refreshing to know that, these
men did not escape. Tlio shell If and

The Webster County Sunday School
Association held its annual session in
the Methodist chutel'i of this city last
Wednesday and Thursday. On account
of tho blizzard which was rntriiiL' at
the time the aUeiidance was quite
small however the audience made up
with enthusiasm what it lacked In
numbers and a most profitable session
is repoitcil.
The state workers, Miss Drown and
Mr. IClmberly weie on the ground and
each delivered two excellent iiddressss
liking the line of Sunday School work.
In this convention the need of system
atic study was emphasized. Just as
the teachers in the day schools must
lit themselves for their work so must
the teachers in thu Sunday schools
know what they aro doing. A thoio
knowledge of thu lliblo was given as
an indispensable aid to the teaching
of the scriptures. Also a tcacherinust
know the lawsof pedagogy and psycho
logy and child tiainiug. This u.-.'-ocin
Hon aims to stimulate tho Sunday
school t cachets so that they will be
elllciei.t workers.
