The Institute for Cherry Co con
vened at Valentine July 19th with
Supt Stoner as conductor Pres J M
Pile and Prof A O Thomas instruct
ors Forty three teachers came in the
first day and at present the enrollment
ha reached fifty six
The teachers show by their work
that they are here for a purpose and
the spirit and interest which they man
ifest speak well for the educational in
terest of our schools Too much can
not be said in favor of the work of our
instructors They are earnest enthus
iastic and practical and the institute
can not fail to be of the greatest bene
fit to those who attend They present
principles rather than methods and
are succeeding in the real work of an
institute setting the teachers to think
ing aud giving them a better idea of
their responsibilities and the needs of
the schools
As usual the institute is composed
of the progressive teachers of the coun
ty who realize not only the advantages
to be- derived but the privilege they
enjoy in receiving this special train
ing The work of the Institute began
at the very beginning of the session
and those who are coming in at the
eleventh hour will find that they have
lost much by their neglect
Prof Thomas conducts the exer
cises in reading His work is thor
oughly practical In taking up the
reading special attention is given to
work in each grade Language work
is being thoroughly canvassed and
teachers are becoming convinced that
language should be taught from the
first day of the childs school life
Our teachers are getting a clear un
derstanding of the worK to be done
and we -may expect good results
Pres Pile has charge of arithmetic
and under his able management a
deep interest is being aroused in this
work Practical work is made promi
nent problems solved and principles
illustrated and better work may be ex
pected in this line Our schools
need more thorough work in arithme
tic and we know that by following
Pres Piles instructions the work will
certainly improve The work in arith
metic has an awakening influence and
will lead to more systematic thinking
in schools
Prof Thomas has charge of the ex
ercises in geography As this is a very
opportune time for all residents of Ne
braska to study the geography of their
state considerable interest is taken in
this subject Teachers will benefit by
this work and will be able to teach lo
cal and state geography in a better
Prof Thomas also has charge of the
work in penmanship and drawing
Good penmanship is one of the first
requisites in a teacher and more care
ful thorough work in this line should
be insisted upon by our teachers
The following are the names of the
teachers in attendance

JWesley Tucker is the proud owner
of a claybank mare which he has been
having kept at the ranch of JnoShores
Yesterday his two sons Harry and John
went out after the mare Before start
ing they very carefully put up a nice
little lunch and made arrangements to
take along a goodly supply of spond
ulicks for cases of emergency Dont
ask them how they enjoyed the lunch
or enquire what they did with
money because they forgot both and
questions might make them feel

A young fellow named liyan was up
before Hizzoner Monday charged
with stealing a mackintosh from J A
Carroll Two other fellows were mixed
up in the affair but no evidence could
be brought against them so young
llyan was left to suffer for his misde
meanor alone Judge Towne gave
him a bread and water term in jail
liyan is but a boy 17 years old and it
is sad to think of one so young being
so bad Perhaps this experience will
teach him a lesson which will be valu
able to him in the future Maybe
hobos will learn to give Val
entine a wide berth when they come
along this line Judge Towne is a
holy terror to evil doers
Cattle Released
The South Dakota cattle men and
Indian Inspecter McLaughlin return
ing from PineKidge last evening hav
ing completed their investigation of
the trouble between the Indians and
whites over the trespassing of outside
cattle upon the reservation In an
interview with Bennet Irwin who at
tended the investigation as a member
of S D Association but not person
ally in the cattle taken up we learn
that the cattle will be released on bond
in a day or two and the issue will be
settled in the TJ S court This with
reference to the cattle taken up but
thematter of trespassing in the future
will go the interior department on Mr
McLaughlins report Ruslmille Stan
Court House Argument
If those who so vigorously oppose a
new court house had visited the coun
ty clerks office Monday they would
have had a good court house argument
presented them The rain of Sunday
night went through the Are and burg
iar proof vault as easily as it would
have done had the vault been built of
sponge Water stood on the floor in
pools and ran down the sides of the
vault in rivulets Books were wet
and many were covered with green
mould and smelled as badly as the lo
cal populist dictators articles against
The Democrat If the books are
kept in that vault much longer they
will simply rot away
How long will it be before the peo
ple of Cherry county learn that it is to
their interest financially to build a
I court house
