was somewhat chilled, when in the second
round he noted that Mitchell had hit Corbett
a couple of biffs in the ribs.
The Annual County Institutes.
In accordance with the unanimous wish of
the county superintendents of Nebraska in
state convention assembled, Hon. A. K.
Goudy, state superintendent of public instruct
ion, has completed a schedule showing the
date of opening of the annual institute of each
county in the state for the summer of 1894. By
the same vote the county superintendents
pledged themselves to the adoption of the
provisions of the schedule unless they found
it impossible to do so. According to the
schedule counties are divided into groups as
follows, and each county will begin its insti
tute on the same date:
June 18—Cass, Chase, Dundy, Franklin,Fur'
nas, Gage, Harlan, Hayes, Hitchcock, Jeffer
son, Nemaha, Nuckolls, Otoe, Pawnee, Red
Willow, Richardson, Thayer, Webster.
July 9—Adams, Burt, Butler, Clay. Dakota,
Fillmoie, Frontier, Gosper, Johnson, Kearney,
Lancaster, Perkins, Phelps, Polk, Saline,
Sarpy, Thurston, Washington.
July 23—Banner, Boone, Buffalo, Cheyenne,
Colfax, Dawson, Deuel, Douglas, Garfield,
Hall, Keith, Kimball,Lincoln,Merrick, Nance,
Platte, Scott’s Bluff, Valley.
August 6—Blaine, Box Butte, Custer, Grant,
Greeley, Hamilton, Hooker,Howard, I.ogan,
Loup, McPherson, Seward,Sherman, Thomas,
August 20—Antelope, Boyd, Brown, Cedar,
Cherry, Cuming, Dawes, Dixon, Dodge, Holt,
Keya Paha, Knox, Madison, Pierce, Rock,
Saunders, Sheridan, Sioux, Stanton, Wayne.
In speaking of this new plan Superintend
ent Goudy says: “I am sure there will be
few, if any, instances in which the adoption
of the dates named will be found impracticable
so I confidently expect their general adoption.
The county institute gives me the best oppor
tunity to meet school officers, teachers and
patrons, and in my contact with these, lies my
highest opportunity for usefulness as a public
Formerly with no system of dates, much of
my time in the institute season was wasted in
reaching, consecutively, institutes in counties
widely separated. The adoption by the
county superintendents of the dates indicated
will enable me to visit and take part in a
much larger number of institutes.
“You will observe that the schedule pro
vides for periods of two weeks, not overlap
ing, and this obviates a difficulty heretofore
experienced in securing instructors and will
permit the instruction to be given by a small
er number and enable more sections of the
state to secure the services of our best institute
To the superintendents Mr. Goudy says:
“X trust that you will find it beneficial to
your county to arrange for your institute in
accordance with this schedule and thus aid
this department in expending its time and
energies to the best advantage.”

Renewed conferences between the genera
passenger agents of the trans continental rail
ways promise to remove the necessity for a
trans-continental rate war that seemed almost
inevitable last week. The railway officials
recognize the disastrous consequences of such
wars as well as any one else and are only too
happy to avoid them where they are carrying
a legitimate traffic. Particularly at a time like
the present, when no road has a surplus of
patronage, a trans continental rate war would
work deplorable results upon the business of

the train run over it. He did. The shiner

an army of boys have failed to locate it.—Hol
