Ugliness is in future to constitute a
disqualification for military service in
France. So convinced is the war de
partment at Paris of the desirability of
fairly good looks in soldiers that it has
actuallyset down extreme hideousness
as one of the misfortunes which , like
other physical infirmities , must be held
; o exempt a young man from conscrip-
ion. Ugliness , it is claimed , makes a
man ridiculous , prevents him from exer
cising authority over his comrades , and
"eaves him over-sensitive and morbid.
The circumstance that since the new
rule has come into force the rejections
from the conscriptions have increased
by 5 per cent does not , however , prove
that Frenchmen are becoming less come
ly , but merely shows the war depart
ment has raised its standard of manly
beauty. In future the fact of belong-
ng to the army will in itself constitute

existence of good looks , and the art of
military mashing will acquire a new

The institute which conies to a close
on to-morrow may be set down as the
most successful ever conducted in Red
Willow county. The enrollment has
approached the 100 mark and the inter
est manifested been healthy to an encour
aging degree. It may be noted further
that the personel of the teachers of the
county is undergoing a marked improve
ment from year to year , and as a body
they will not suffer in comparison with
the teachers of the commonwealth.
THE TRIBUNE feels disposed to compli
ment those who have been instructors
during the two weeks' successful ses
sion just about to close ; and to add a
word of commendation and encourage
ment for those who have doubtless pro-
fitted by their attendance ; and who will
jo forth with an inspiration which will
je helpful through the months of the
approaching school year.
A contemporary says that this is a
a bad year for newspapers. It hasn't
) een a month since the York Daily
tfews turned up its toes to the daisies ,
tfext the Omaha Republican , one of
the oldest papers in the state , was an
absolute wreck. The Crete Democrat ,
3galalla Reflector , Danbury News , Cur-
; is Farmer and Hiawatha Signal have
'ollowed the daily contemporaries to
swell the silent majority. What the
> eople want is not a greater number of
japers but better ones. Too many
newspapers are born in hatred and such
generally fail. Because an editor cannot
conscientiously agred with 'every man
in town it's no reason why there should
be another paper started to do it injury.
The weeding out process has commenc
ed. There will not be so many news
papers in Nebraska in ten years as there
are to-day in proportion to the popu
lation. There are not so many now as
there have been but there are a great
many better ones and such as there are ,
are getting better from year to year.
This is an iconoclastic age. So the
following from the Lincoln Journal will
cause but a slight ripple of excitement :
"The high price of potatoes this season
is a cause of considerable annoyance to
frugal householders. They have been
accustomed to the use of the tubers for
so many years that they regard this
form of food as a necessity , and the
shortage in the crops seems to them an
unreasonable hardship that nature has
imposed upon her children. Now the
fact is that the use of the Irish potato
has become common on account of its
cheapness and not because it has any
particular food value. Scientists tell us
that the potato is chiefly beneficial as a
diiutent. It is composed principally of
water , and is agreeable and useful when
taken with the highly concentrated foods
that the American people are accustom
ed to use. But it can be easily dis
pensed with , and in times ot scarcity it
is safe and proper to substitute a cheap
er article. Rice contains about the
same elements as the potatoe , in a more
condensed form , and many other things
will be found of equal value. The
potato at present is a luxury and the
public mind should be disabused of the
idea that it is a prime table necessity" .
Our readers may therefor comfort them
selves with generous draughts of Mc
Cook water works liquid in lieu of the
toothsome tubers. It is more plentiful
if not less expensive.
ELLA E. HETTLETOH.
DIKD August 18 , 1890 , at residence of her
Aunt , in Dixon , Illinois , Ella E. Nettleton ,
of Red Willow county Nebraska.
Such simple words to mean so much !
Ella dead ! And wo who knew and
loved her , weep , sorrowing , most of all ,
that we shall see her face no more.
Ella Nettleton was an exceptional
girl and only those who found their way
through the shy , unobtrusive exterior ,
were aware of and could appreciate the
depths within. Brought up in the isola
tion of this new country , she was much
alone and was thoughtful and reserved
beyond her years. As the little shep
herd lass she grew very close to nature
and ever retained the simplicity and
purity of heart which came of this early
association. After being carefully
taught at home she spent two school
years at Franklin academy , where in
June , 1889 , she graduated with honors.
Too close application to study under
mined her health and coming home was
prostrated for weeks. Rallying some
what from this , during the fall and
winter she taught a six months' school
in the country. Though suffering be
yond the knowledge of any one she faith
fully and conscientiously did her duty.
Towards the last , scarcely able to keep
up she finished her term and then went
home , again prostrated. She grew worse
and her friends , thinking an entire
change might be beneficial , in May she
was taken to relatives in Illinois. Here
with rallying and relapses she lingered
until August 13th , when she passed
away , where on April 3d , i860 , she
was born. Her suffering wasgreatdur-
ing the last week. Her brother , who
had been summoned by telegram , bent
over her , saying "Ella , are you afraid
to go and be with Jesus ? " "No , in
deed ! " she replied. Afterwards , feel
ing the messenger near , she said "I am
going home to my Father's house. "
She was a member of the Congrega
tional church and Y. P. S. C. E. While
teaching hardly able to sit up she would
ride several miles to church and Sunday
school to show she was on the Lord's
side. And she is gone ! Dear , patient
sufferer ! We mourn in sympathy with
lier stricken mother and only brother ,
and yet , we try to still our grieving , for
we know she is now above the highest
earthly aims and ambitions. Life's
transient dream is ended , Death's cold
sullen stream has rolled over her , she
lias been borne above by her loving
Savior A RANSOMED SOUL. A FRIEND.

A Land Office Circular.
WASHINGTON , August 1C. Com
missioner Groff of the general land office
las issued to the registers and receivers
of land offices a circular giving the re
cent opinion of the attorney general ,
which sustains his construction placed
upon the law of 1888 , known as the arid
land law , by the interior department.
Attention is directed to the depart
ment's circular of August 5 , 1889 , in
which they were instructed not to per
mit the entry of any part of the arid
region which came within the operation
of the act of October 2 , 1888. "Al
though in any case , says the commis
sioner , "there should be at any time no
designation of the land involved therein
as the selection for a site or sites for
reservoirs , ditches or canals for irrigat
ing purposes , as land thereby made
susceptible to irrigation , that fact is not
to be considered as showing that the
land is open to entry , although not yet
selected , it may be liable to such selec
tion under such act , which is held to
the withdrawal of lands so liable for
disposal. " Absolute obedience to the
order is enjoined.
Reduced Rates on Grain.
General Freight Agent Crosby of the
Burlington has the following to say in
reply to a request for reduced rates engrain
grain for this section on account of crop
failure : We have put in effect a tariff
quoting reduced rates on corn to points
west of a line drawn north and south
through Hastings , Blue Hill and Red
Cloud , provided the corn is shipped from
stations west of a line drawn north and
south through Lincoln , Beatrice and
Wymore. I trust this will enable your
people to get corn at prices they can
afford to pay. Yours truly ,
GEO. H. CROSBY.

Conductor Ed. Kane had an exciting expe
rience , a few days since coming down from
Denver , with an individual claiming to be u
M. P. detective , who was attempting to
travel on another fellow's pass. Ed. had a
message to take up the pass and to collect
fare. Thellawkshaw demurred most per
sistently , but finally deposited the required
coin of the realm with the insistent con. when
le became convinced that it meant "cash
down or no ride , " and that was just what
Ed's eyes looked. The sleepless sleuth
lound then wanted to recover the other fel-
ow's pass , and upon being refused , tele
graphed ahead for an officer to arrest Kane
at that station. Upon reaching the designat
ed station a minion of the law boarded the
rain ; but lacking the proper and necessary
bit of parchment , he did not secure his man.
At the next station the bold , bad detective
man left the train in great disgust , and the
ilent , nervy con. went on his way rejoicing.
Kane follows his orders.
