The Stanton Register of recent dnte
proceeds to score Norfolk as nn inhospit
able city with referenoo to tho proposi

instituto bore next summer nud inti
mates that tho idea was abandouded
simply because Norfolk refused accom
modations to tho teachers As is notor
ious with Editor Pont ho does uot seem
to bo conversant with the facts in tho

given rntes that are 35 cents a day
lower than tho hotels of Lincoln havo

and whilo all arrangements were uot
satisfactory to the superintendent of
publio instruction of Stanton county
and thnt couuty will uot participate in
tho joiut session there will bo a joint

teachers iu this city and they
will undoubtedly find Norfolk accommo

expected that tho instituto will be much

The congressional committee on irri

ably considered by those working for

lauds ns tho Moudell measure but is a
stop in tho right direction and friends of
irrigation will sincerely hope that the
bill nmy pass It will require years of
work to bring irrigation ami water fetor
ago up to what friends of the movement
hope to see aud it cannot be oxpocted
that all can be done at once A start
must be made howover and tho earlier

thnt tho money received from tho salo

1000 it wns 10070 nu increase over 1890
of nearly 25 percent
It will bo noticed thnt tho growth of
Norfolk haa been faster than the county

An ill Advised Argument
Tho wagoumukers nud blaoksmiths of

Tho Madison Star discussing tho propo
sition says
This may look liko a very trivial
matter nnd wo prefer to think thnt
outside of tho instigation of tho
scheme uo malico was intended by tho
smiths towurd tho city or tho printer
Tho common wny of looking nt this
agreement between a worthy class of
tradesmen is that it is simply a boycott
of tho printer with a view to saving a
few uickles a year but uowspaper ad
vertising iu a city of this class has a
much deopor significance thnn a mere
revenue for the newspaper matt
It is a recognized fact that no ono
enterprise of n community does more
toward Us upbuilding than ti well eon
ducted newspaper Who mnkes thnt
nowspnper It is largely tho advertiser
Ho effers inducements to drnw tho trndo
for miles aud oven brings that which
would naturally go to neighboring trad
iug points Tho merchant or business
man of any kind who derives revenue
from tho trade brought to ncity through
numbers outlay as a sponger and
when it comes through tho newspnper
advertisement he robs the printer of his
just recompenso for his labors
Then again ho shirks his duty to
ward his fellow townsmen by failing to
add his mite toward trade getting It
is the duty of every individual who de
rives his livelihood from n community
or through the good will of the com
munity to contribute something toward
the maintenance and upbuilding of that
We believe as David Harumsaid
There is about as much human nature
in one person as nnother but it seems
to be some peoples human nature to
want someone else to earn their living
for them
It is a standing joke that the news
oaper man is the poorest paid for the
amount of labor he does for his town of
any other class of business men nud it
seems that there nro a few individuals
iu every community who make it their
business to do whnt they enn toward
keeping him at the bottom The best
results are alwayB obtained through the
prosperous newspaper nnd if nil would
lay nsido their penurious grasping
keeping nil you have nud get nil j ou

their representatives their would bo
