' 5The assessor's report shows the total
number of children of school age in the
city of McCook to be 823 , this embraces
all over 5 years and under 21 years of
age. The total enrollment during the
year was 829 , the largest in the history
of the school , and really an extraordinary
one. It should be remembered , too ,
that the total "outside" enrollment for
the year did not exceed 31 pupils. The
average attendance for the nine mouths
of school was 579.
The matter of the compl int from

The Red Willow county teachers' in
stitute will be held in Indianola fron
June I2th to igth , inclusive , in the higl
school building. The county superin
tendent has issued the customary circu
lar concerning the same from which tht
following items are taken :
The briefness of this t > ession and tht
hi h character of the instruction inakt
it imperative that no time be lost ; thai
all be present the first hour , 9:00 : Monday
morning , and attend ihe entire session.
All persons desiring to teach in Red
Willow count } ' , the coming year , are ex
pected to attend the full session of this
institute or its equivalent. The school
law reads as follows : "The County Sup
erintendent may , at his discretion , re
voke the certificate or refuse to grant a
certificate to any teacher who refuses to
attend the county institute. "
CHARACTER OK INSTRUCTION.
The work will be professional in char
acter. Bear in mind the institute is in
no sense a preparation for the teacher's
examination ; you are expected to be
fully prepared for that before the insti
tute begins. The institute is for those
already prepared to teach , and held in
order to make better teachers and fill
them with inspiration for their work.
Two or three lectures will be given
during the week , which will be an
nounced in the papers and at the insti
Board will be furnished at reasonable
rates. Examination fee ofi.oo is re
quired. Tuition free.
It must be kept clearly in mind that
examinations are not to be held this
year in connection with the institute.
On the gth and loth of June an examina
tion will be held in the Indianola school
building. No third class certificates will
be granted. All who hold certificates
with grades below So per cent must
raise such grades. Certificates grading
85 per cent for second grade and 90 per
cent for first grade will be subject to en
dorsement , provided the holder complies
with other conditions.
We extend a cordial invitation to all
district boards , patrons of schools and
friends of education to visit us at any
session. Our public schools are demand
ing better teachers , therefore the stand-
ir < l uiu t be raised. I would suggest to
school boards that they come to our in
stitute to select teachers. Let me urge
upon the teachers the necessity of being
present the first hour. With your sup
port we can make this a most successful
nstitnte. LILLIAN M. WELBORN ,

Memorial services for the honored
lead of the war of the rebellion were
icld in the Catholic church at half past
teu o'clock , Sunday last. The church
was all too small to hold the great num-
jer who desired to attend , many regret-
"ully turning away.
The decorations , consisting of llags ,
junting and flowers , were artistically
arranged , while a magnificent imitation
catafalque occupied a position at the
foot of the altar.
The members of the G. A. R. , W. R. C.
and Daughters of Veterans inarched from
their hall in a body and occupied seats
in the center of the church , especially
reserved for them.
The memorial sermon was delivered
by Rev. Father Cullen , and was a
scholarly and masterly effort , the vast
audience frequently breaking into ap
plause as some particularly interesting
point was touched upon.

The meeting of the ministerial club ,
Monday , lacked but one of a full repre
sentation of the membership , and was
withal profitable. Rev. Turner presented
a paper on "The Origin of the Lord's
Day"of which the following is a brief
THE ORIGIN OF THE LORD'S DAY.
We find the beginning of the observ
ance of the Lord's day in the New Test
ament. It was a joyous , spontaneous
assembling of themselves together to
break bread at a social meal , thus keep
ing the memorial of the crucified and
The Jewish Christians kept the Sabbath
according to the commands of Mosaic
law , and along side of the observance of
the Sabbath grew up the observance of
the Lord's day.
There is no apostolic command to ob-
serv'- the first day of the week. The
epiiue of Barnabas , 119 A. D. , designates
Sunday as a day of "Jubilee" in remem
brance of Christ's resurrection.
Ail the writers from the apostles to
the year 300 A. D. declare the Lord's
day to be a sacred day , a day of privil
ege , of joy , rather than of obligation.
They never confound it with the Jewish
Sabbath never call it the Sabbath , but
the Lord's day.
The Lord's day grew up like most in
stitutions in the Christian church , gradu
ally becoming more and more a day of
rest The Lord's day was to the church
at the beginning of the fourth century
a day of joyous commemoration of the
Lord : it was under the law of liberty
ami so was distinguished from the Sab
In 321 Constantine , the Roman em
peror , issued the following edict :
"On the venerable day of the sun , let
the magistrates and people residing in
the cities , rest. And let all workshops
be closed. In the country , however ,
persons engaged in the work of cultiva
tion , may freely and lawfully continue
"Given this seventh day of March. "
While there has been great diversity
of opinions , scholars of today are quite
unanimous in the judgment , that this
edict is simply the work of a keen poli
tician seeking to introduce order into
the confusion of rest days.
This is shown by the fact that he does
not use the word Lord's day but the
"venerable day of the sun" which was
especially agreeable to his pagan sub
This is the beginning of civil legisla
tion for the observance of Sunday. We
notice a steady growth in the strictness
of requirements both in the civil and
ecclesiastical legislation of the following
period. In the second council of Macon ,
585 A. D. , the transfer of legal concep
tion of the Sabbath to the Lord's day
seems to be complete.
At a meeting of the ministers of the
city held on June 5th at 9 a. m. , the fol
lowing organi/ation was perfected : Rev.
T. L. Ketman , chairman ; Rev. T. P.
Beall , secretary.
The next meeting will be held in the
Congregational church , next Monday
morning at 9 o'clock. Rev. J. A. Bad-
con will read a paper.
Union temperance meetings will be
held each month. First meeting on
Sunday evening , June 25111 , in the Con-
pregalional church. Rev. Stoy of the
Episcopal church will deliver the ad
PYTHIAN MEMORIAL Sl'NDXY.
The regular annual Pythian Memoiial
services will be held in the Methodist
church , next Sunday afternoon at 2:30
o'clock. Rev. Turner will preach the
Memorial sermon. The Pythian band
will head the procession to the cemetery.
All knights are requested to meet at the
: asUe at 2:00 : prompt , bringing such

ration of the graves of their departed
brethren. All visiting knights are re-
juested to participate in this service.
