Valentine , Nebraska , June 15th
to July 24th.
To Teachers , -Actual and Prospec
The time approaches when you
will have to decide upon the man
ner of spending your summer. In
the belief that I may be able to in
fluence you to think favorably ofj
attending the Junior Xormal at' '
Valentine , I am addressing you.
Why You Should Attend Sum =
mer Scnoo ! .
There are two masons why you
should attend a summer school.
Ona of these is the absolute need
of getting away from the u-ual
environments and coming in touch
with new conditions , and in asso
ciation with those who can lead *
you along different and more ad
vanced lines of study than hereto
fore , perhaps , it lias boon- your
privilege to go.
Withoutsuch opportunity , leaching - J
ing is liable to be regarded as
rather a grinding task instead of
an opportunity to do delightful
aud serviceable work. The genu
ine teacher , of her own accord ,
seeks this opportunity , and if her
strength and means permit , at
tends some school.
, Another reason for attending !
is that the law '
imposes the requirement - !
quirement of normal attendance
'upon those who have not thus i'ar '
had the privilege of attending for
a , sufficient length of time to meet
the legal demand.
Why You Should Attend at Val *
entine. , I
There is no n re deligLtful
p-lace in Nebraska , t send a few
weeks of the summer than 1 ere.
To be in Valentine for six weeks ,
even with hard study , is genuine
rest. The locality is beautiful ,
jihe atmosphere fresh and invigor-
jating I , the citizens interested and
hospitable , and the faculty of the
normal strong and willingly help
In no other place of the state
probably is there so much done
constantly to make the stay of
those who attend the normal agree-1
able and profitable as here. Jnj
this effort both the citizens and
the management of the normal
Board and Rooms.
Good board and rooms can be'
secured at prices ranging from
83.50 to1.00 per week. Should
you desire to secure places to'
board 1 and room before going to
Valentine , you should correspond
M with Co. Supt. Lulu Kortz , Valen-
The Work Offered in the Normal.
There will be classes formed in |
those subjects required for the
three grades of county certificates ,
Sand I . , if demanded , in those sub
jects j leading to a professional
state certificate , However , it
should not be assumed that mere
attendance at the Xormal in any
way assures such standing as to
merit either passing grader or
certificates of any kind. These
can be earned only by the work
which attendance gives opportun
Requirements for Entrance.
Those who hold county teachers'
certificates , those who hold county
superintendent's certificates from
the eighth grades of the district
schools , or thee who have been
promoted to the high school are
eligible to enter the normal. All
should take with them , when they
go to Valentine to register , their
certificates of one kind or another.
If any do not have either of the
three kinds of certificates men
tioned above , but feel that they
have 1 a preparation equivalent to
that indicated by the possession
of either of the above certificates ,
they should correspond with Co.
Supt. Lulu Kortz , registrar , Val
entine , and she will determine up
on the equivalency of what you
offer for entrance.
The f acuily is composed of men
and women with successful ex
perience in the work of which
each will have charge , and each
member will endeavor to illustrate
successful methods of instruction
daily in class in addition to the
specific instruction which will be
given for the various subjects.
The faculty consists of Prin. A.
\Vaterhouse , Omaha , principal ;
Co. Sapt. Lulu Kortz ; Co. Supt.

pleasure of meeting you for the
session of lOUs and for a pleasant
and profitable summer , i remain ,
Sincerely yours ,

Nan and the Bucket.
There is one particular fever of non
sense which the Princeton Tiger claims
the credit of having originated , for in
the November issue , 1002. appeared the
following verse :
\ There once was a man from Nan tucket
Who kept ull his c-sh in a bucket ,
But his daiiKhto ; . named Nan.
Ran away with a man.
And as for the bucket Nantucliet.
For the nest few mouths Nan , her
father and her newly acquired hus
band encountered a series of the most
i astonishing adventures in every known
hamlet in the country which could be
converted into limerick form by the
brains of newspaper and magazine
writers from KCA to sea. By the tin : ?
Nan came back with a doen : : or so : ul-
ditional verses tacked on to her' there
L- reason to wonder in the face of the
ordeals to which she had been subject
ed whether the pecuniary advantage
gained by absconding with that bucket
repaid her for all that she had been
through. Hey S. Durstine in Bohe
How He Gaved Money.
A country politician1 Pennsylvania
managed to get elected to the legisla
ture at Ilarrisburg for one term. When
he came back he built himself a fine
house , costing about $20,000. His old
neighbors , who knew he had no money
before he went to Ilarrisburg and who
knew the salary of a Pennsylvania
legislator , were curious to discover
where the returned statesman got
means to build the house. So one day
a committee wailed on the man who
j built the house , and the spokesman
"Jim , it may be none of our business
to your thinking , but we think you owe
it to us who sent you to the legislature
to explain where you crot the money
with which you built this house. You
didn't have a cent before you went to
Ilarrisburg and owed everybody in the
place. How about it ? "
"Why. " said the builder , "it's simple
enough. You sec , when we were in
Ilarrisburg we didn't keep a hired
girl. " Argonaut.
Freaks of the Sea.
The freaks of the sea are the anglers
and bat fishes. The people of North
Carolina have aptly named the angler
the allmouth , for the tail begins where
the mouth ends. Inhabiting the north
Atlantic , the angler has been given a
variety of names. On the lassachu-
setts coast it is known as goosefish.
Rhode Island terms it bellowfish , and
Connecticut gives it the cognomen of
molligut. Jamaica bay calls it the car
petbagger. England , Ireland. Scotland
and Wales all have their local names.
The names of the English give to this
one fish are expressive of its'habits , to
say the least. They call it toadfish ,
frog fishing frog , devilfish , sea devil ,
nassTish. monkfish , pockelfish , wide-
gut , kettlemaw and widegap. Thomas
Pennant , who in 17TG wrote his "Brit
ish Zoology , " did not like the name of
fishing frog , then app.lied to the fish ,
so he ' 'changed the old name of fishing
frog for the more simple one of an
i he Way of Humanity.
Human nature is kind and generous ,
but xit is narrow and blind and can
only with difficulty conceive anything
but what it immediately sees and
feels. People would instantly caife for
others as well as themselves if only
they could imagine others as well as
themselves. Let a child fall into a
river before the roughest man's eyes-
he will usually do what he can to get
it out , even at some lisk to himself ,
and all the town A\ ill triumph in the
saving of one , little life. Let the same
man he shovn that hundred > of children
dren- are dying of fever for want of
some sanitary measures which it will
cost him trouble to urge , and he will
make no effort , and probably all the
town would resist him if he did.
On the Other Side.
A British b'old'jr out walking with
his son saw an old blind beggar with
the inscription on his chest. "I Fought
at Waterloo. "
The soldier said , with deep feeling :
"Give him something. ITc helped to
save your country. "
The child dropped some silver into
the beggar's cap , and the old man
gratefully replied :
"Merci bien , monsieur ! " London
Twain Wasn't -Well.
At a dinner to which Mark Twain
was invited his name was associated
with the toast of "Literature" , by an
orator , who referred with great elo
quence to Homer , Shakespeare. Milton
and Mark Twain. In response the hu
morist thanked the speaker for his
kindly references and excused himself
from making a longer speech by say
ing , "Homer is dead , Shakespeare and
Milton are no more , and I I don't feel
verv well mvself ! "
