Appropriate exercises were held ir
all the rooms below the high school lasi

good and we were sadly disappointed
to see so few parents out to encourage
John Bullis in behalf of the high
school literary societies , ordered twenty
dollars worth of books from Chicago
last week. We expect to have our new
boo < case ready for these books when
they arrive. There still remains about
five dollars in the hands of the treasur

The State Normal School ( PeruNeb )
is having a very prosperous session this
year. Dr. J. A.'iieattie writes us that
the enrollment for this 3 ear has reached
nearly seven hundred , including the
normal school proper and the practice
department. The school year has been
lengthened two months and special
classes will be organized to run from
June 9th to August 3rd thus giving
teachers who have taught during the
> ear an opportunity to put in two
months where they can get the very
best instruction in methods and at the
same time be doing work which will
lead directly to a professional life ctr-
tificate. The enrollment next summer
ought to be very large. Young teach
ers who are intending to go to sshool
somewhere next summer snould write
early to Dr. J. A. Beattie for particu
lars of the summer school.

Santa Glaus was a very conspicuous
character in the homes of the fami
lies in Valentine Christmas eve , and
many a child was impressed with the
goodness of this mysterious old man
who thus bestowed blessings upon
them. He also made his appearance
in the churches where the ex
ercises were just simply rand. But
it is to be regretted that so many
children should be overlooked in a
place where we teach the love of
Santa towards the little ones.
Where there are so many it makes it
very difficult to remember all , but our
liberal spirited citizens expect this to
be done hereafter , and will contribute
to this end. One little fellow , who
observed others receiving candy , re
marked that he guessed Santa Glaus
didn't know him , and tears came to
that mother's eyes , although plenty
of presents awaited that little girl
upon its arrival home. Let us see
hereafter that every child is remem
bered at public places for the good it
does in the world.
An exchange gives an account of
hugging societies which are being or

A noted cook sa-s that the secret
of good cranberry sauce is the use of
very little water and quick cooking.
Eight or ten minutes is long enough ,
as otherwise the bitter taste of the
seeds is developed. A small cup of
water to a qu rt of cranberries is
sufficient. The sugar is added just as
the sauce is taken from the stove.
This recipe is given to the ladie s of
Valentine for what it is worth.

The editor received a very neat
purse for Christmas , with the com

always knew that C. A. Johnson , the
cashier , was a great "joker , " but
this joke takes the premium. Whr.t
in the world will we , a newspaper
man , do with a money purse ? At any
rate , though , the gift is an appropri

with old type and brass rules will give
the editor's pocket a prosperous look.
