bills of exchange, and so high is the
standing of the board in foreign lands
that its bills of exchange are preferred in
India and China to those of the best
banks of America and Europe.”
The missionary work is growing. In
most of our foreigh fields doors are open
ing as never before. Here the doctor
told a most touching story of the gift, by
a typewriter girl, of fifty dollars to sup
port a pastor-teacher in India, and how.
inside of ninety days, this had resulted
in the establishment of a church and the
conversion of more than 200 heathen.
On Sunday morning was held, in the
Methodist church, the Conference Love
Eeast, led by A. J. Clifton of Culbertson,
Bishop Walden then preached a sermon
that will long be remembered by those
who heard it. (Which ye scribe did not,
as he worshiped in the Baptist church
and heard a very impressive sermon by
Rev. Isaac Crook, D. D., chancellor of
the Nebraska Wesleyan University.)
In the afternoon a memorial service
was held in the Methodist church, pre
sided over by Bishop Walden. Rev. E.
Smith read a memoir of Rev. W. A. Ams
bury, late presiding elder of North Platte
district, who lost his life by the acci"
dental discharge of a pistol, September
nth. Brother Amsbury came into Ne
braska nearly forty years ago, and his
life and work in the ministry have en
deared him to multitudes within his
fields of labor. Further remarks were
made by Reverends C. A. Mastin and W.
E. Hardaway and by Bishop Walden.
The ordination service was held and
the persons whose names are given else
where ordained deacons and Benjamin
S. Haywood was ordained elder.

The Methodists maintain a college in
Pekin, and numerous schools, hospitals
and churches in other parts of China.
The Methodist church property that is

BIBLE SCHOOL NOTES.
The Bible will do its own illustrating
if you will give it a chance. We are
proving this every Sunday.
Are you studying Bible Notes or the
Bible itself? Are you studying what
man says about it, or what God says?
These are important questions. How
are you answering them?
Scholars should see to it, that they
come every Sunday and not miss the
connection between lesson and lesson.
They are doing themselves a vast
wrong by their irregular attendance.
Next Sunday morning the school will
take up in review that portion of the
Life of Christ which they have been
studying for the last month. Those
who wish to take up the course at this
point will find this an excellent chance
to do so, as the review will enable them
to go on with the others without having
missed the four lessons.
Members of the Church and every
member of the school, especially Inter
mediate, Progressive and Bible Grades,
are earnestly requested to be present Sun
day morning for the transaction of im
portant business, the adoption of a con
stitution and election of officers. The
presence of the Church members is re
quired in the adoption of certain features
of the constitution.
Superintendent Watson is working on
the details of a scheme, to enable the

This will not be restricted to members

tunity to get a Bible, by giving him
their names.
The editor of the Sumner Dispatch
doubtless has a number of delinquents.
[The fact is we all have to many derel
icts.] He recently lifted up his voice as
followeth: “We do not know that we
ever mentioned it, but we will take any
thing on subscription, such as potatoes,
com, hay, straw, fodder, chickens, pigs,
calves, old shoes, strap iron, bird-dogs—
anything to eat. We want you to have
the paper. We want circulation. Tell
your friends about our offer, and if they
haven’t the money, or anything to ex
change for a year’s subscription, tell them
to come right along and take it without
money or without price. We want to do
business, and if we bust, we want to do
it up in good shape. We are going to
ran as long as we can, and when every
scrap of paper in the office has been con
verted into issues of the Dispatch, we
will print our farewell edition on the
office towel, fold up our tired hands and
retire from the field of action.’’
We beg lief to assure the esteemed and
evidently deeply interested contempo
rary which has been quietly circulating
the report where it would do the most
good to the effect that The Tribune
would become an Independent newspa
per after the coming fall election, that
we feel grateful for its “disinterested”
enthusiasm in spreading this “news.”
But do not bank too heavily on your fer
vent prayer and longing hope, brother.
•Rev. W. C. Stevenson, of McCook,
who will be remembered by many friends
hereabouts, has resigned his charge at
that place and was dismissed by a Church
Council last Friday. The Reverand gen
tleman has lately come into a legacy of
twenty-five thousand dollars and will
probably quit preaching for the time be
ing and return to his old home in Ireland
for a visit. This sort of thing seldom
happens to preachers—to editors never.

This week, C. H. Meeker left at this
office, a few ears of corn, grown under the
ditch on the Sutton place,which are unus

prospect seems most unpromising.
Deacon Morlan promises to stay with

office.
Colonel Mitchell of the Indianola Cou
rier believes that the people prefer a

Bright colors make a woman look
young; white makes her look big, plump

sad, heavy, old and doleful. Men and
children are attracted by women in

and under their poetic influence naughty
boys and girls become good and obedi

with baby in arms and a woman in
mourning always get a seat in a crowd

never stay unmarried. When a widow

LIBRARY DAY.
Office of Superintendent of Public In
struction, Lincoln, Nebraska, Sept, 19,
*893.
To Superintendents and Teachers of
Nebraska: In accordance with a reso
lution of the Nebraska State Teachers’
association passed at its last annual
meeting, a program has been prepared
by the committee appointed for that
purpose looking to the observance of
the anniversary of the discovery of Amer
ica as Library day in the schools of the
state.
It will be remembered that October
21st was celebrated all over the country
last year as Columbus day; it is the
thought of the promoters of Library day
that it would be well if Columbus day
could be perpetuated as an annual fes
tival for awakening interests in the
schools, and especially for the building
up of school libraries in every district in
Nebraska.
It is well known that the books of spec
ial interest and profit to children are
no less interesting and profitable to
adults, and that the books of the chil
dren are read with avidity by the teach
ers and by the parents of the children.
Good books put into the school library
soon find their way to the homes in the
district; they are read by both the school
children and the home children; a habit
of reading is hereby encouraged or en
gendered and the good reading takes
the place of no reading or bad reading
in the community.
This movement has received the hear
ty endorsement of Francis Bellamy of
the Youths’ Companion, of Dr. E. C.
Howell, ex-president of the Illinois
State Normal university and of others of
national repute, as well as the approba
tion of the educational workers generally
throughout our own state.
In accordance to the recommendation
of the conmittee, it gives me pleasure to
call the attention of the teachers and
patrons of the schools to this matter and
to recommend that Friday,October 2otli,
or so much thereof as may be deemed
expedient.be devoted to the preformance
of the program published in the Sep
tember number of the North-western
Journal of Education, and to efforts to
arouse an interest in the subject of school
libraries among the children and the
patrons.
I especially recommend that an effort
be made in connection with this celebra
tion to create a fund, be it ever so small,
for the purchase of books for the school
that may serve as a nucleus for a school
library.
Trusting in your well known custom
of heartily responding to every call of
this department and recalling your un
iform co-operation with its chief in every
educational work, I have no hesitancy
in leaving this matter in your hands.
