The second annual race meeting of
.the Battle Creek Driving Park asso
ciation came to a close yesterday af
ternoon. The crowds were good dur
ing the last two days and the assocla-
thin will bo able to meet all oxponses.
The racing Itself was better the tlrst
< lay than either of the other two.
There were not as many horses en
tered as there should have been with
the handsome prb.es offered. Yester
day's events wore all foregone conclu
sions , the winners leading In straight
heats. The olllcors of the association
were as much disappointed as any
and did everything In their power
make the racing a complete success.
"It looks as though the horsemen had
entered a trust to take the money and
give little for it , " said one of the of
Hut desplto the easy money that
wont to the drivers , Battle Creek put
up ugood entertainment for three days
straight and they deserve credit. People
ple gathered from every part of the
county to see the sport and they were
all cordially received.
One of the prettiest features of the
meet came yesterday afternoon when
the track record was broken by Teddy
Brunswick , a beautiful little stopper
who went the mile In 2:21 : % . Ho was
paced by T. I ) . Preeco's pony , Dolly D.
who -\yon the llrst day's race. The
track record previous to yesterday's
mark was 2:23. : Many were betting
that Teddy would stop the mile In less
that :20. :
The saddle race of yesterday was
won by Dora G. , who had beaten St.
Ledger on the day before. She took
the two straight heats.
Haggle Reed had no trouble In win
ning three straight in the 2:40 : class ,
time 2:30. Little Frit ? and Siilvcr
Wing were the only other entries.
Bon Tell took his three straight
heats , hands down , tlmo 2:20. : Spo
kane and George Star were the others
Among the visitors yesterday was
a large crowd from Norfolk , number
ing 100 easily. There was also a good
delegation from Madison , many of the
conty olllcers ami men prominent in
political circles among them. The
Madison people are planning to give
an excellent program for the four days
of the county fair next week. Fully
forty people who had planned to at
tend from Tllden were kept away by
the delayed passenger train , a num
ber of them driving nevertheless.
Stanton and Nellgh were both well
represented , advertising their meeting
for week atter next , .ludgo II. Wade

dicial convention. He will start the
The News was represented at the
races every day by a staff correspond
ent.- The people of Battle Creek ap
preciated the complete reports of their
meeting and they also universally
appreciate the fact that The News can
give them telegraph reports from the
world over , several hours later each
day than any other paper that can got
into this section of the state. This ,
together with the local news , has made
it an invaluable visitor every day in a
great many Battle Creek homes.
THE FIELD IS AN OPEN ONE ,
A Few Hours' Work Demonstrates
How Easy it Would be to Start

[ From Saturday's Dnlly.J
The News has repeatedly Insisted
that there was a good opening for
some lady , having hustling friends tc
assist , to step Into the subscription
contest , and with a little effort carr >
away , Mag , the rubber tired runabout
and the harness in payment for the
tlmo and trouble expended. This has
been proven during the past few days
by a representative of the paper whr
went out and in a few hours gatherer
Jn nearly a hundred subscribers U

the handsome rig to urge him on
It shows that the Hold has not"yel
been woiked to the limit , although :
number of the contestants and thoii
friends have boon making a good hits
tlo. It also shows that the contestant'
are not expected to push something
that the people do not want , and It li
not a case of people subscribing foi
the purpose of helping their friends
out than for the privilege of haviiif
a dally or weekly visitor that they wll
appreciate. The News is prepared t <
bee that subscribers get the full valm
of their subscriptions and all that Ii
expected from the contest Is to cal
the attention of the people to tin
dally and weekly editions , which an
both thoroughly up-to-date
ropolltan. There Is a full month untl
the close of the contest and lu tha
tlmo an enthusiastic hustler wouli
stand a good chance of getting the out"
lit. You can't lose anything , ami you
may win one of the handsomest rigs
When Mag was driven recently , on
approaching the railroad track a train
suddenly roared past wltlflu a few
feet of the animal and lo the surprise
of the driver , who did not see the en
gine coming. It whl/7.ed by as Mag
was about to step on the track. With
ninety-nine horses out of a hundred
there would have been trouble right
there and then , but there was none
with Mag. Bho acted most sensibly
and the nearness of a disaster did not
frighten her Into making an accident
certain. She can bo trusted anywhere
and driven by anyone , and the best
part of It Is that she can go when
speed Is desired.

A Imttlo ro.Mil WHH fought on the

COAL CHUTES IN OPERATION ,
New Time Saving Device on North
western was Used for First Time
fFrom Monday's Dallv.1
The first ton of coal to bo dumped
into a tender on the Northwestern
road in Norfolk- , was poured out by
the now method from the coal chute
just completed at the yards , this
morning. These are the chutes which
have been in process of construction
throughout the summer and their suc
cessful operation is a matter of Im
portance to the railroading on the
All day yesterday the chutes wore
being filled with coal so that begin
ning with this morning there would
be nothing to interfere with the plans
for starting the service. The first lo
comotive needing the fuel today there
fore rolled alongside like a monster
ship and was filled In less time than
It takes to tell , from the mouthpiece
of the chute. The little chunks of
shining carbon spilled out as though
they had been at it for years , and went
at It with a merry spirit , withal.
Saturday saw the last of the ma
chinery placed for the working of the
new system and the first carload of
coal was hauled up the incline and
dumped Into the pit. The cars were
hauled up by means of a cable which
requires twenty-five minutes In the
There are four openings or chutes ,
so that the capacity Is ample for years
to come. This Js the same style of
chute that will bo placed in operation
all along the line and the same one
that caused an accident at the start
In Oakdalo not very long ago.
The gravel trains which arc run
ning twice rf day from the Atkinson
pit have pretty well filled the yards.
j Two carloads of gravel are dumped
In each pile along the tracks and about
| half of the ground has already been
1 covered. Other work at the yards ,
where the Northwestern company is
expending so many thousands of dollars
lars this season , Is progressing well.
The News at Battle Creek.

Fall Term Begins Today and
ASSIGNMENT OF TEACHERS.
The Norfolk School Bell Will Sum
mon to Duty Tomorrow Morning at
Nine O'clock Pupils Must Furnish
Pens , Pencils and Paper.
IKritin Muiiilnv'M Diillv 1
The various schools of the county
nro scheduled to open today for the
fall and winter term , but a number
of them , like Norfolk , will not open
until tomorrow on account of the fact
that this is Labor day and a legal
holiday. After the long vacation
teachers and pupils take up the year's
work with renewed x.oal and most of
them are glad that the time has come
when they will have something worth
while to occupy their attention.
Snperlntedent O'Connor and the
Norfolk teachers have been preparing
for the opening of school for some
days past ami have everything in
leadlness to quickly get Into the reg
ular routine of work after tlie last
bell has rung at ! o'clock tomorrow
morning , and the pupils also are ready
to take up their duties whore they loft
off three mouths ago. Naturally tholr
memories and ambitions will require
a little brushing up for a few days
alter the long vacation , but it will
not take them long to get sobered
down and to work.
The teachers were on duty today ,
distributing books and otherwise preparing -
paring for the work of the term. The
enrollment of pupils lias commenced
and the prospect is that the attend
ance will bo much larger than last
year. In the Eighth grade , especially
the Increasing number of enrollments
makes it look as though an additional
teacher for that grade would bo need
ed. Miss MilleV , who takes the posi
tion hold by Mr. McCoy last year , Is
entering on the work with enthusiasm
and today is fixing up the laboratory.
With this term the rule recently
adopted by the board that the pupils
must furnish their own pens , pencils ,
tablets and slates goes into effect and
they should be supplied before school
opens in the morning. It has been
found that pupils have little regard
for the value of such property , when
furnished by the district , and the par
ents who have considered the school
pens and pencils unsanitary are not
objecting to the plan.

WEEKLY CROP BULLETIN ,
Week Has Been Very Warm and Dry ,
and Generally Favorable to
[ From Woilnowlnv's Dully. ]
Director Loveland of the university
at Lincoln gives the following sum
mary of crop conditions during the
week ending with Tuesday :
The past week has been warm and
dry. The mean dally temperature has
averaged 2 degrees above the normal
In eastern counties and f > degrees
above In western.
In a few northern counties the rain
fall ranged from a quarter to a little
more than half an Inch , and in a
arge portion of the state no measure-
ibie amount fell.
The past week was generally for
agricultural interests. Thrashing and
laying progressed rapidly ; thrashing
'rom shock Is now well advanced and
thrashing from stack has begun. In
some contra ! counties some grain still
in shock is sprouting. A largo crop
of wild or prairie hay Is being se
cured in the northern and western
parts of the state. While corn has
matured somewhat slowly and needs
warmer weather , still it has made a
substantia 1 advance and conditions
ire more promising than a week ago ,
Early corn Is denting : the corn crop
promises to be excellent if not in
jured by an early frost. Plowing Is
well advanced , with the ground in
excellent condition. Sowing of win
ter wheat Is generally beginning.
Potatoes are .a short crop In most
parts of the state. Pastures and
ranges continue in good condition.

for the improvement of the rural
schools that has been attempted In

Importance of Ibis move1 , and the lien-
ollt It will bring to rurul schools and
teachers , ami everyone connected with
school work should help on this , tlie
greatest reform that ban come to the
country school in llfly years. I waul
you to know what we are trying lo do ,
and when you Know I am sure you will
do all lu your power to help it along.
Much lime and energy Is wasted lu
school work because no dellnlte guide
hail been furnished the teachers , and
many work without a speclllc aim or
knowledge of what they should at
tempt to accomplish In any onu year.
They llml It dlllleult to grade their
schools. Are not sure In which grade
the elementary text should be placed
in tlie hands of the pupil , how much
of It should be covered lu a year , when
completed or where to begin the ml-
vanced book. The state course being
too general , leaves much to be guessed ,
resulting lu much random , uncertain
We aim to change thin aimless , un
certain condition to one of a certainty
and uniformity by the use of a def-
Into , speclllc , directive , guide course
of study based on a uniform list of
books. Nearly every city and town
has such a course wherein each year's
work Is clearly outlined from page
to page of their texts , as little as pos
sible being loll to the guesswork of
the teachor. If this Is necimsary with
experienced teachers , how much more
necessary Is such a coiirso for the
young , Inexperienced teachers work
ing alone In the rural school ?
Would it not bo of great benefit lethe
the teacher and school if wo could
supply a course of study clearly out
lined by years and months , and show
ing the number of pages of each text
that should be covered In each year
of the course ? Wo can never have
this till we have uniform books
This is what wo arc working for lu
MadlHou county. The same work IH
being done In .many other counties
of this and other states. Several coun
ties have their course of study now In
the bands of their teachors.
The Inclosed list of books was chos-
A list of books was chosqu last
spring by the School Board asso
ciation for uniform use lu this coun
ty. They are all good books and have
been adopted for uniform use lu
other counties of this and other states ,
The American Hook Co. , although
given a third of the list , is not satis-
lied and Is lighting the movement.
They have had eight salaried agents
in the county this summer trying to
sell their books and spoil our plans
for uniformity. They are doing the
same in other counties. It Is said they
have thirty-live agents In the state
fighting this 'reform because It dis
places tholr old out-of-dato books.
Now , wo want every teacher to help
this move along. Talk to your board
and show them what wo are aiming at.
Urge and show why wo should buy
the uniform books. Show them that
the uniform list , as a whole , Is cheap
er than the American Book Co's. That
the Crane readers , Hoonshel gram
mars and Rand McNall's geogra
phies are very much cheaper than like
books of the A. B. Co. , Show that the
binding of the uniform list is superior
to others. If your board has bought
books of these agents , not on the uni
form list , explain that these now
books will bo taken up by the dealers
at Madison. Norfolk , Battle Crook , Til
den and Newman Orovo , and the same
number of books of the uniform list
' given In exchange , oven , book for
j book , without cost to the district. You
j can thus help to Introduce the uniform
list , and wo shall soon have the course
of study to aid you In your work.

for the uniform list.

[ From TtifBilny's Pally. ]
The Norfolk schools opened this
morning with an extra largo attond-
anpn and Ilio prospects are that the
capacity of the several commodloun
ImlldlngH will bo severely taxed to
accommodate all pupils who will at
tend Ilu > fall and winter term.
It IK estimated ( hat fully a thousand

considerable Increase over the enroll

portion of Increase appears to bo In
the higher grades. In the high school

102 at the close of the month last year.
In tin eighth grade 7S are now en
rolled , compared with 71 at Ilio oloso
of the month last year. It Is expected
that the enrollment will constantly in
crease during the month and perhaps
longer Already tin1 capacity of the
school IN ( axed , and w.i/a ,111 d ineumt

those to come are being considered.
Ily substituting a smaller platform
for thn present largo one it is thought
that about twenty pupils more can bo
accommodated with seats , and after
that other arrangements will have to
In the Eighth grade thnre arc 30
pplls to each teacher , and their tlmo

these , without additional work , l-ust

gave about half of her time to high
school work , but with the present at-

COUPLE OF KLEPTOMANIACS ,

( Kiorn Tin-fi'iVP Dutlv 1
A pair of clever kleptomaniacs , who
make others seem like amateurs , have
boon coming into Norfolk from Plerco
county for some time to do their "shop
ping" and have finally fallen Into the
hands of the police.
Carrying a sack under his arm , the
farmer was arrested Saturday after
noon at the Trinity church rummage
sale. In the sack were two pairs of
trousers and one shirt which had been
lifted from the Bee Hive store. Ho
was not alone , however , In this feat.
Ho was assisted by his good wife.
While he held the sack she slipped the
articles into it. The farmer agreed to
como In today and pay for the goods
and was released because the company
did not care to prosecute.
The farmer has been buying a good
deal at the rummage sale all summer
and has the look of a genial , whole-
honied good fellow. Ho was overcome
with grlof at his disgrace and said he
didn't know why It had been done. He
promised to do Letter.
