J. L. Jaynes and Dennis McCarthy are
students under Special Auditor R. 0.
Brandt. This arrangement went into
effect July 1st , and provides that telegraph -
graph students shall serve an apprenticeship -
ship for one year , when they will be examined -
amined by the auditor at Omaha as to
their ability as an operator and in station
work. Failing to pass an examination
they must serve another apprenticeship
of six months and again stand an examination -
nation which , if they pass , are put on
the list for employment. This arrangement -
rangement is rather in the line of civil
service reform , and will tend to better
the station service in years to come should
the scheme be successful. The next

school for the education of hobos for the
position of section laborers.-Alliance

count the drouth of the past year , which
was not broken until May 3oth , the damage -
age done by hail on June 24th , and the
last and worst , the grasshoppers , the result -
sult is very satisfactory. Mr. Holdrege
thinks that Nebraska and eastern Colorado -
rado have passed the crisis and that better -
ter crops and easier times are in store for
the people. He is also of the opinion
that deep plowing and 'thorough ' cultivation -
vation will bring the country out all
