Board of Trade Meeting.
A meeting of the Board of Trade wasJichl
In tho Babcock building , Wednesday even
ing , the attendance being fair. Mr. Jennings
of the road committee reported favorable
progress , some three or four roads aheady to
place before tho county commissioners for
official cstablibhment Mr. Meeker of the
sugar commission read a partial report of the
inspection of the Topeka cane sugar mill by
himself , Judge Cochran and Frank Harris ,
exhibiting a specimen of tho output of tho
mill. The gentlemen brought back a very
favorably report indeed , and feel confident
that a sugar mill would make a splendid ,
paying enterprise for McCook and Bed Wll-
iow county. On their return , Judge Cochran
stopped over at Lincoln and with the aid of
Representative Wilcox prepared and intro
duced a bill in the state legislature pioviding
for a bounty of two cents per pound on cane
and beet sugar grown in this state. Tho fol
lowing preamble and resolution were then
framed and adopted by the board , and
Messrs. Cochran , Green , Meeker and Harris
were constituted a committee to go to Lin
coln to urge tho passage of the bill :
WnEiiEAS , This board has taken consider
able paius to invustixato the sugar manufac
turing interests in Kansas , and
Whereas , Tho industry is new in tho west
and is ono that must provo beneficial to tho
entire state , and
Whereas , Tho bonus or premium of 2 cents
per pound paid by tho state of Kansas for each
pound of sugar manufactured in tho etato has
been tho principal impetus to sugar manufac
turing in that state ;
Therefore he it Resolved , That it is the
senso of this Board that tho bill introduced by
Representative Wilcox ib. tho legislature of
.Nebraska is a movo in tho right direction , and
that tho same , if passed , would be of great
benefit to tho state ; and wo most earnestly
urgo tho passage of tho Bald bill.
Bills of The Tbibune , § 5.50 , and of The
Democrat , S7.50 , allowed. Adjourned.
Bepresentative Wilcox lias introduced a
bill entitled , "An act to enconrage sugar
manufacture , " which in the writer's opinion
is one of the most important measures
brought before the present session. The bill
provides the payment of a bounty of two
cents per pound on all cane and beet sugar
manufactured inNebraskaand will no doubt ,
should it become a law , encourage what in
Kansas , under a similar law , is becoming a
great and growing'industry , in which tho
people , the farming community , as well as
the mill owner and capitalist , enjoy a good
profit. To Western Uebiaska the establish
ment and operation of sugar mills would bo
a great boon. Sugar cane is successfully
grown j here and in great quantities. It would
bring eastern capital to our aid. Encouiage
the cultivation of cane , providing a local
market for its purchase. Would givo em
ployment to a large number of hands at a
time when demand for laborers is limited.
The Tribune hopes to see the bill pass
without opposition. The entire state will
necessarily : profit by the establishment of su
gar ' manufacturing interests within its limit.
A Gladsome Surprise.
A bus load of young people from the city
enjoyed ' a very pleasant evening at the

Death of Mrs. Geo. W. Roper.
[ Indianola Courier. ]
It is with a feeling of sorrow that we chron
icle the death of Mrs. Geo. W. Boper , the
wife of our excellent county clerk , on Tues-
day evening at her home in this city. That
dread disease , consumption , had been gradu
ally undermining her health for some time
and a cold.caught a few weeks ago , hastened
the ' close of her eaithly career. A good wife ,
a loving mother and a kind neighbor has
gone to her rest. A husband bereft of his
helpmate , and five small children , of a
mother's care. Iu behalf of this community
we extend to the bereaved ones a heartfelt
sympathy. The funeral takes place to-day ,
Thursday , at 2. P. M. , at the M. E. church.

Subscribers Pay Up.
It is not the habit of the publisher to do ;
persistent dunning ; but there is a tide in the j
affairs of men which taken at the Hood leads (
on to glory ; so there is a time in the life of <
the publisher when a little cash seems to be •
necessary , in addition to gloiy. An urgent i
invitation is extended our delinquent sub1 1
scribers to call at once and settle up. In l
ather words we must have some money. E

The Time to Advertise. *
Advertising is never so much in order by
sagacious and merchants active as it is when

mants , should be got lid of before the sea-
son has filled two-thirds of its length. To do ;
his in all the lines lor such goods needs far ,

A majority of tho teachers of tho county
met at Indianola , Saturday morning of last
week , and spent thu day lu dkcusslng the
best methods of presenting various subjects
to tho youthful mind. The attendance was
good , Including not only teachers but many
others interested In education ; tho program
was long and instructive , and consisted of
papers , class-exercises.discusslonsand music ,
tho latter being furnished by tlw young ladles
and gentlemen of Indianola. Owing to the
absenco of Principal Heltman , his subject ,
"Who Is the Good Teacher in tho School
Boom , " was taken up informally and dis
cussed In a lively manner by both teachers
and patrons. For the benefit of thoso who
were unable to attend , Miss Condlt's permis
sion was asked and obtained to havo her pa
per on "Language in Primary Grades" pub
lished. The association was made a perma
nent organization and hereafter it will hold
its meetings quarterly , the noxt to occur at
Bartley in May. Following we give Miss
Condit's paper on
Possibly no branch In tho Primary schools
serves to cultlvato so many faculties of tho
youthful mind as Language Observation
may bo quiokoued , imagination cultivated ,
memory strengthened and attention aided.
Its importance is second to no other branch , as
likewisotho necessity for a proper beginning.
Each day's lesson should bo a stcpplng-stono
to something higher. Each step but a portion
of what ahull finally bea complete , full , round
ed structure. Tho most of the first year's
work must oral , likewise tho
beginning of tho socjnd. For several weeks
at the beginning of this year , I attempted
little further than to lead tho children "to
talk. " They described pictures and objects ;
imagined themselves to be in possession of a
certain amount of money , and told how they
would spond it ; they told me what tli03would
like to do when grown ; how they hnd spent an
hour or a duy and what they saw coming to
school. We also had somo very interesting
"guessing games" In which I thought of somo
object , and tho class by asking questions , the
answers to which would describe tho object ,
endeavored to dcterinino what it was. When
a class is tired or a change is needed to awak
en Interest , tho last named device may provo
quito successful. The first written work wo
did was tho copying of sentonccs from the
board. As the cluss described an object I
wrote tiic description aud tho children copied
it. 1 also asked questions and the class wrote
answers in complete sentences. Soon I ceas
ed to writo whole sentences , butslmply placed
the hard words before them and they wroto
out tho sentences. As they wero able to spell ,
I increased the written work and gave them
less nid : though in all my work I encourage
requests for the spelling of new and difficult
words. By tin's means incorrect spelling Is
prevented and the child learns to know when
hoJtnows how to spell a word and when he
does not. When a class has become so far ad
vanced us to be ablo to spell fairly well then n
variety ot means may be used to keep up the
interest and progress with the work. Pictures
are very useful In language work , not only
thoso in the readers , but others may be used to
advantoge. I have a set of Language cards , on
which are pictures , which have served as the
basis of several lessons. I also have quite a
stock of pictures which I have cut from papers
and magazines and pasted on card board , I
consider these a valuable assistance in mi-
work. By the use of pictures the powers of
observation may bo cultivated. I am often
times surprised at the accuracy with which a
picture is described , tho quantity written be
ing limited only by the allotted time. To cul
tivate tho imagination the class may bo per
mitted to imagine themselves asleep and
dream and then write tiie dream. Tho variety
of adventures described will doubtless be
as amusing and unreal as dreams usually aie.
Sometimes I suggest to my class that they
think themselves to be , for a short time , a
bird , a cat or a dog and tell me on their slates
how they look , what their names are , what
they do and think , etc. lhave just commenc
ed to introduce story writing. As with other
classes at this stage of their progress , I had
experienced considerable difficulty in leading
them to form connected sentences. I tried a
plan this year that has proven quite success
ful in overcoming this difficulty. This work I
introduced some time previous to my attempt
at story-writing. I placed npon tho board ten
words which would suggest a good sentence.
For example "mouse and trap. " After the
class had iormed a sentence using these two
words , I told them to begin a new sentence
and use the word cheese , letting this sentence
also be about the mouse , then I gave them an
other word or porhaps two to form a sentence ,
and so on constantly reminding them that I
wanted each sentence to be about the mouse.
In this way neat little stories were written.
The words I gave them helped them in their
choico of language and also served to increase
their vocabulary. I think it was in the second
lesson of this kind that I gave my II. class that
I wrote the words "cake" and "closet. " This
sentence being formed I wrote "piece , " when
this sentence was written I asked one little
girl to read me tho two sentences. She arose '
and read : "A boy went into the closet to get
some cake , but you may bo sure he did not get
a small piece. " 3Iueh langunge work may be
done incident ] } * in other work , permitting a '
class to write stories iu number work is a vol-
uable assistant. A spelling lesson given oc- -
casionally , consisting of a stanza of poetry , <
or a short paragraph to be copied and laarned I
and then written , serves a two-fold purpose ]
of ' a spelling and language lesson. I think
writing from dictation fchould occupy a more
important place than it usually does in our
Primary grades. This may properly be intro
duced in connection with Language work. By
this means children may receive a drill in ,
punctuation which will be ot great value to
them , beside this the ability to write rapidly
and accurately sentences dictated to them ,
may [ be a valuable assistance in more advanc- '
ed work. I give a lesson of this kind occas- '
ionallyand I can note advancement already.J J
I cap give whole sentences of considerable :
length and almost without an exception they <
will be written correctly. I also give letter <
writing some attention. This the children es
pecially enjoy if they are permitted to have a
P. O. and send and receive letters. Sometimes '
I place pictures of animals on the board , the
first day we describe them and then follow
as time'permits with their habits , use , etc. ,
generally ending with a story about the anii i
mal which may be reproduced , by the class , i
3Iuch valuable information may be given a |
child in regaid to plants , animals and various (
objects by making them the basis of Language
lessons. Occasional lessons are needed to ex
plain punctuation and capitalization , also
somo instruction m the use of possessive ? , use
of "is" and "arc" and the hyphen. There Is <
brielly au outline of the work my class has l
accomplished in the live months of this year , t
3Iany other devices suggest themselves by a i
little thought , the value of each being deter
mined by the object to be attained. To make
the development of the child symmetrical
having no hobbies , hut giving to each faculty .
to be educa'ed due attention , requires un- .
ceasing labor in Language a. well as in other
branche ? . 3

as we have it , started to playing curds to while

smoothly and serenely as a heavy loaded sleigh
crossing a bare , bridge , when suddenly ' and
without warnlngone of the players was caught
in the act of handing a card to his partner In
tho game , then the fun commenced. A by
stander made a remark about it which was in
stantly taken up by tho party caught aud a
few very pleasant and fluttering compliments
were passed when one of them suddenly re-
memberiug that he hail 1111 old rusty revolver *
