John EnloAV III
Last Sunday Bob Gillaspie
brought
John Enlow to- town from his ranch
60 miles southwest of here and left
him at The Donoher He was after
wards removed to the home of J G
Stetter where he will remain until he
recovers from the attack of typhoid
fever which now has him do wn Mr
Enlow is one of Cherry countys most
prosperous ranchmen and his illness
causes universal regret He is1 under
the care of Dr J C Dwyer and his
sister Mrs Mary Martin and partner
T J Eoley of Council Bluffs together
with two trained nurses from Omaha
are taking care of him At present
writing his condition is improving and
no serious apprehensions are felt for
his ultimate recovery
Newspapers all over the state are
roasting the recent fair held at Omaha
and call it a rank fake Some of them
are grieved over one thing andA some
over another and when the grievances
are all added together it makes a
pretty big sum Eortunately or un
lortunately tbis paper was not present
so can say nothing either for or
against the fair Of one thing it sure
though and that is that Omaha is
rapidly obtaining a reputation which
is to say the least unenviable in more
ways than one Her newspapers are
everlastingly at war and cannot get to
gether on any subject and her people
seem all absorbed in self What should
be a second Chicago will always re
main a third rate city if something is
not done to promote harmony

Miss Jessie Bowring from Chadrbn I

Friday afternoon spelling and
ciphering down was permitted in
several of the rooihs
The song books ordered by last week
arrived Tuesday morning Thus the
singing no longer lacks energy and
spirit
We regret that on account of lack of
space but one verse of the following
poem presented to us by Walter
Flowers can be published
LITERATURE-
As we mount higher we climb
Upon Fames paire of glory
And onr records live out of time
In our countrys wonder story
Bryan badges are in the majority
among the campaign emblems worn
by the pupils A noticeable feature
is the number of girls among the
wearers Therell come a time
when we will have a better right to
them
In the Grammar Dept a report of
current events form part of the morn
ing exercises Miss Efner has various
exercises such as study of quotations
and the reading of stories In the
afternoon nature study forms part of
her work Miss Callen besides her
musical exercises has games tending
to tram the senses to become more
accurate sometimes varying this with
gymnastics while Mrs Crawford has
ganies and gymnastics
Georgia
News iteuis are as scarce as free
silver bankers
Our school will commence Oct 5th
The present prospect is very favorable
for a good term of school
The cold wind of the past few days
has developed an inclination to whistle
last year tunes through the threadbare
portion of our trousers
We wonder if Wannamaker will do
the Sunday school act for McKinley as
he did for Harrison so as to give the
campaign a moral send off
This is the time of year when the
burrs stick in the mane and foretop of
the old mare and when she gently
swipes you in the face at milking
time you nrast be able to swear in
seven languages to do justice to your
feelings
The prophets are foretelling a long
and severe winter and those that take
heed to such things are setting their
ho uses in order In the meantime we
will hope that He who tempereth the
wind to the shorn lamb may lovingly
care for TJ aid I
