BBBM 'The present system of graded schools
l was organized iu this city in 1884 with
BBB \ W. S. Webster as principal. The only
BBB , building in use was what is now known
BBBk as the West ward school where four
| BBB\ teachers taught the 175 children enrolled.
mBBB \ Today there are in actual attendance 674
T Hfc pupils , divided as follows : 336 in the
WW ' \ tt : > t building , 286 in the West- building
f J ; and 52 in the South building. The Board
\ / g * of Education now employs a superin-
BJ K tendent , three principals , seven teachers ,
BBBa . two assistant teachers and two jauit ts
BBBB The pupils are classified in twelve
H > grades of one year's work each. The two
B 'V " lower grades are provided for in all three
BBBk buildings , the third grade in both East
BBB" and West buildings , the fourth , fifth and
BBBk sixth grades in the West only , and' all
BBBJ grades above the sixth in the East only.
BT There are ten class rooms with an aver-
Ks , ' * age seating capacity of fifty pupils. The
BBB I pupils attending the lower grades are
BBBl * comfortably seated , but above the third
BBB grade every room is crowded far beyond

B ? . _ The school system is controlled by a
BBhl Board of Education consisting of sis
BBBB members , two of whom are elected annu-
BkABjt ally to serve three years. The present
BBBBE board is constituted as follows : A.Catnp-
BBBBr bell , president ; John Wentz , vice-presi-
P V BB dent ; W. F. Law son , secretary ; R. B.
BBBJ Archibald , E. H. Doan , A. Baruett. The
BBk members meet on the first Monday of
Bc * each month to audit accounts and take
BBBr such action as may benecessary to the
BBBP welfare of the school .system. The city
BBBj superintendent is the executive officer of
BBBB the board and has direct supervision over
• jf BBBJj &H the classes. He arranges the courses
teg B ' of study , attends to the admission of
jaJB new pupils , looks after the school proper-
BBBr ty , arranges reviews , examinations and
BBB [ promotions , and exercises a general con-
BBBT' ' trol over all questions of discipline and
BBBK order. He receives a daily report from
BBBJf each teacher showing the names of ab-
BBBJ sent aqd tardy pupils , and he is required
BBBB \ to exercise great care in guarding against
BBBJthe \ spread of contagions diseases among
pHft the children.
P Pafji The revenue at the disposal of the
P PK ' Board of Education is derived from three
BBBJ * sources. The tax levy of 20 mills on the
P PKL property in the school district should
P P Df yield about $5,600 per annum , $2,250 is
P PB > at present derived from the license fund ,
BBBSvy and about $8oo is apportioned from the
P B/ state school fund. The non-resident
P P'ii pupils in the high school , now number-
BBKk ( ing about twenty-five have their tuition
BBB/f paid by a special tax on the property of
BBE\ ( the county outside the high school dis-
BBV > tricts. This should yield a revenue of
BB ll about $400 at the legal rate of $2.00 per
B BTV pupil , per month of attendance. This
P BZy makes a nominal income of about $9,000 ,
B Br\w while as a matter of fact , owing to failure
BBpfj of taxpayers to settle with the county
BBTlTiy treasurer , it fell about $2,500 short , last
BBlll year. The principal item of expenditure
P BS . is , of course , the pay roll. This has been
BBBjijs. steadily reduced for the past six years
m jl from $7,575 in 1S90-1 to $6,675 in 1S95-6 ,
* * v the number of has
though pupils nearly
doubled in the meantime. The two next
i items in importance are fuel and the
supplies furnished to the pupils. The
BK\ former has been reduced from $700 in
BBal IS 1890-1. when hot air was used in the
Wjf\ ? East building , to $375 in 1S95-6. Under
HE ] if the requirements of the state law , each
| PJ.\ \ ( pupil must be supplied with text books ,
BB \ \ \ and all other supplies required to be used
H ' p in the school. The results show the
P Bl/ / wisdom of the plan. School supplies
BBB ft cost the district about one-half what they
BB % y.\ cost the retail purchaser , and last year
BJ > Cl the stationery and other supplies were
Bj tr furnished the children at an average cost
B ft of 50 cents per capita. The water tax
Bi " amounts to $113 each year and the insur-
B' Jr ance to a hundred more ; this with vari-
B fir ons miscellaneous expenses bring the ex-
B'ff penditures to about $8,300 , leaving small
V II margin for unpaid taxes , and making the
B'I ( , average expense for each pupil attending
BHV > * $12.50 Per annum , which includes all
P ll "N. things necessary for their use in school.
B flt ri The large number of families which
B jC have moved to McCook to secure school
R privileges for their children , the policy
U fl of the railway management to retain in
B their employ heads of families rather
B than single men , have led to a large in-
B crease in the attendance , while at the
B same time there has been a constantly

diminishing income owing to unpaid
taxes and the shrinkage in values of the
school lands. That McCook is not alone
in thi- difficulty is shown by a com
parison with other towns in the
state where the same and , in most
instances , worse conditions now exist
The problem is a serious one. In order
to secure any portion of the state fund it
is necessary to have nine months of
school. To cut off from the system the
upper or high school grades would be to
reduce McCook to the rank of a village
or a country district as far as educational
advantages for older pupils are con

CAPTURE TWO ALLEGED MURDERERS
Down Near Belolt. Kansas. They
are Also Charged With Mak
ing Moonshine Whiskey
Deputy Revenue Collector Ed. Ballew ,
accompanied by Sheriff Robb of Chey
enne county , Wyoming , came in on tht
train from the west , Tuesday. They
were on the trail of a couple of men whe
murdered a man up in that country and
robbed him of some four or five thousand
dollars. The two men passed through
here on Thursday after doing some horse
trading with some of our local traders.
After leaving this city they stopped over
night at the farm of James Bogenreif.
They gave out the information that they
were on their way to Beloit where they
intended to stop several days ana visit
with friends and were going from there
to Oklahoma. They are also suspected
of being moonshiners and it is supposed
that they had m their wagon a couple ol
stills and about ten barrels of whiskey.
Tv\o officers were sent on the traiu and
Ballew and Robb stopped here and hired
a teams and were driven to Burr Oak
where they took the train for Beloit , and
if the murVlerers have not gone in some
different direction they are probably by
this time in the hands of the officers.
Red Cloud Chief.
The men were apprehended near Be
loit , and taken to Junction City for pre
liminary trial. A large amount of moon
shine whiskey was found in their pos
session , and they will tell the Federal
judge at Cheyenne all about it when
court opens in that city , May joth. The
deputy says they were regular Georgia
moonshiners and had with them over 300
gallons of illicit whiskey of their peculiar
sort , abounding in fusel oil and other
abominable smelliug stuff.
Death of J. Oscar Wagy.
From the Plainville (111. ( ) Messenger
we take in brief an account of the tragic
death of J. Oscar Wagy , a brother of Mrs.
R. A. Green of our city. The young man ,
while laboring under a paroxism of tem
porary insanity , sent a bullet through
his head , Sunday evening , March 7th ,
1897 , at his home near Plainville , Illi
nois. The Messenger states that "Oscar
was regarded as a model young man , in
telligent , well educated , of a good dispo
sition and correct deportment. He was 25
years of age. He was of a gloomy disposi
tion , however , and disposed to look upon
the dark side of things , and his mother ,
it is said , was fearful that his mind might
become unsettled. He and a sister were
the only children of Mr. and Mrs. Wagy
aud this blow falls upon them with a
crushing force that none may analyze.
In their sad affliction they have the sym
pathy of the whole people without re

sions of sympathy for the remaining sis
ter , Mrs. R. A. Green of our city.
Stricken With Paralysis.
Joseph Williams was stricken down
with an attack of paralysis.Suuday morn
ing , and is in a precarious condition.
The stroke effected the entire right side ,
rendering him speechless. Mr. Williams
is about 80 years of age. He formerly
lived on a farm on the upper Driftwood ,
but of late has been making his home
in McCook , with Mrs. Julia Adams on
McFarland street. He is an old settler
of western Red Willow county. Mrs.
Williams has made her home in Iowa for
some years. He has a son in Cripple
Creek , Colorado. Mr. Williams waspre-
paring to make a business trip to Iowa ,
in the near future. His illness may per
manently detain him.
The Primary , Monday.
The primary called for next Monday
evening should be largely attended , es
pecially by the business men and tax
payers of the city- Municipal and edu
cational affairs are in a serious condition
as viewed from the financial standpoint
and wise , thoughtful and economical
plans must be devised and carried out in
the next few years to keep the schools of
the city up to the present standard of ex
cellence and carry on the business affairs
of the municipality. Economy must be
the watchword and retrenchmentin sev
eral directions the slogan. To secure
these results those who pay the money
to carry on our business and educational
affairs should be out in force.

A Good Showing.
We direct special attention to the arti
cle to be found elsewhere in this issue
from the pen of Superintendent Valen
tine. Some very gratifying facts are
given.and economy is shown in a number
of instances , all of which is very satis"
factory as far as it goes. But it is unde
niable that the emergency demands still
further reduction , in order that our
school deficit shall not grow to such pro
portions as shall overwhelm us. A salary
reduction of at least ten per cent , effect
ing the better paid teachers , seems to be
imperative , among other necessary acts
of economy. While the patrons of the
city may properly take distinct and ex
cusable pride in the condition of our ed
ucational matters , yet we insist that we
must not lose sight of the fact that a
condition confronts us that demands
still further retrenchment.

McCOOK NOT ALONE
Retail Merchants of Omaha Complain
Agrainst Out-of-Town Shopping- .
SCHOOL ENTERTAINMENT IN FRONTIER.
Brief Happenings atthe Schools.
Also ail the Other News of the
Town Presented in The
Omaha retailers are again calling at
tention to the fact that altogether too
many people who reside in this city and
derive their income from Omaha institu
tions persist in going or sending to the
larger eastern cities for ware. , and goods
that ran as well be bought through local
merchants. This complaint seems to be
not only well grounded , but also well di
rected. If the Omaha retailers cannot
depend upon the patronage of Omaha
people it will be next to impossible to
build up local business , without which
no city can permanently thrive.
The Bee was the pioneer in the move
ment for stimulating the patronage of
home Industry by giving the preference ,
other things being equal , to the products
of Nebraska factories and mills. The
same principle dictates thut in the pur
chase of all commodities local merchants
be given the preference where they can
fill the order equally well. Our local
business men pay out thousands upon
thousands of dollars annually for rent
and for employes' salaries , and this
money should in turn be spent here in
Omaha. The usual excuse for going
abroad with purchases that ought to be
made at home is that Omaha merchants
do not offer ihe same varied choice or
that they do not carry in stocK the best
and most expensive grades. This , how
ever , is but an excuse , as local merchants
would be glad to supply any article for
which there is a real demand.
The systematic practice of going to
Chicago or New York to do shopping
which might be done right in Omaha is
entirely unjustifiable. The retailers de
serve ever encoura e-nett in their efforts
to put a stop to it and develop a local
pride that will stimulate local business.
School Entertainment ,
The closing of the winter term of
school in district No. 11 , Frontier coun
ty , was celebrated on last Saturday even
ing by an entertainment The program
consisted of literary selections by the pu
pils and musical numbers by I. W.
Spauld.n and two sons and George Mc-
Clain. The affair was a very meritorious
and delightful one , and it was heard by
a crowded house. This is the fourth
year that Hubert Beach has successfully
taught this school , and much praise is
due him for the pleasant and interesting
manner in which everything passed off.
On Friday of last week there was a
flag raising at the same school. The flag
was purchased by money raised at en

contemporary , this week , when it says BBBBBBBJ
that McCook has no men of ability that BBBBBBBJ
are philanthropic enough to perform the BBBBBBBJ
duties of mayor and councilmen for nothABBBBBBfl
ing , and that those who are willing to do BBBBBBBJ
such gratuitous services are boodlers. In BBBBBBB
both instances our contemporary is misBBBBBBBJ

of the better paid class , it more greviousBBBBBBB
