A young girl giving her name a
MoUie Homor, was picked up near
Galesburg, 111., in a state of harmless

Omaha, but refuses to give any par
ticulars. The girl is about 1C years
of age, rather tall, dark compaction,
clear skinned and extremely neat

habits. It is hoped that this item
will meet the attention of some
friend of this girl who will return
her to her home and friends.
An accident on the U. P. Mon
day night was interesting to three
of our citizens, Drs. Mitchell & Mar
ty n and Mr. T. H. Saunders, who
were on board. It was the express
to Denver, and about a mile out
from Omaha. There were two en
gines pulling the train, when all at
once the forward engine jumped the
main track, running off on a side
track, against another train pointing
eastward and waiting for the passage
of the Denver. The first tender was
turned upside down, and thrown off
the track, but nobody hnrt. The
train was going on an np-grade, and
at a rate of about six miles an hour.
The air-brakes being immediately
applied, the shock was not severe.
A newspaper is a sort of public
conscience, when rightly conducted,

There are all classes of men in al
most every community yon may
name, but there is a predominant
characteristic, as of men. These
remarks are suggested by a par
agraph in the Schuyler Herald of a
recent date, rnnning as follows:
"There is more truth than poetry
about the remark made by an in
telligent gentleman of this town,
when he said one great drawback to
our town is the large majority of
business men will not take hold ot
public enterprises, unless tbey can
see for every dollar invested a fair
prospect of two or five in return." 1
Tho Madison Chronicle has this
to say of Leonard Bryant: 'He
came to Madison aud got his father
to ;o on his bond, and is now at
home. Leonard is iu reality a good
boy, but was led into doing a deed,
the magnitude of which he never
considered until the facts and law
stared him in the face. If he is
wise he will profit thereby, and
when he once gets clear of his pres
ent difficulty be more careful of his
actions and with whom he associates."

Postle took a ride of some eight

control them he could guide them

The American Agriculturist for
March is at hand, as bright and
cheery as ever, and is a publication
that no good tanner can well afford
not to have. The suggestions for the
season, given in each number, are
well worth the car's subscription.
Every interest conies in for a men
tion. The farm proper, the orchard,
the fruit garden, tho kitchen and
market garden, the flower garden
and lawn, greenhouse and wiudow
plants, &c. Everything of interest
or profit on the farm receives due
attention, the illustrations making
plans and methods plain to the eye.
This is a special feature ot the Agri
culturist that is very commendable.
In this number, for instance, there
are of these, a grain and stock barn,
feed boxes, corn marker, garden
marker, gates with wooden hinges,
pioueer's house costing .?250 to $500,
a barrel roller, sagging bar for a
gate, a cattle tic. a home-made desk,
&c. The expose of humbugs is an
other specialty of the Agriculturist,
Land iu this it excels all comers; in
this number, the following are ven
tilated : Ozone and Ozocerite; the

What to Teach.
Agesilaus, king of Sparta, being
asked what things he thought most
proper for boys to learn, very ap
propriately replied, "Those things
which they should 2racticc when
they become men."
Now, I wonld ask the board of
education of the city of Columbus
what things our boys and girls at
the present day should learn? I
think the wise king of Sparta gave
a very appropriate answer.
What practical use will a partial
knowledge of algegra, geometryi
Latin, &c, (which is about all that
is ever acquired in our common
schools) be to the boys and girls,
when they go out into the busy
world to act for themselves?
Let all parents and guardians pay
more" attention to the right educa
tion of the 3'outh of our community,
and by frequent visits to the school
room see that they are pursuing
such studies as will be of practical
use to them in after life.

.School Afluir.
Editor Journal : It is very sel
dom that I have any objectiou to
make against the manuer iu which
public mailers are managed, but
there is one thing about the manage
ment of our schools that seems very
singular to me, aud I wonld like to
have some of the majority of the
school hoaid, who are in favor of
our present scheme, explain how it
is. Sec. 8 of the school law, among
other provisions, says "they (the
school-board) shall also elect at their
regular meeting in July annually,
one superintendent of public in
struction, who shall be the principal
teacher of the school, with such
salary as theoard may deem just."
If common report is true, our
superintendent is not a teacher at
all this winter, aud yet, as superin
tendent, it is, by law, a part of his
duty to be the principal teacher.
The legislature cvideutly meaut that
the superintendency should not be a
mere sinecure, a figure-head, a fifth
wheel to a wagon, but one of the
teachers, and the principal one.
Prof. McGinitie holds the office by
virtue of having been elected by the
Board, but isn't it something more
than a question whether the princi
pal teacher (Prof. Cramer) is not the
actual superintendent, and entitled
to at least the teacher's portion of
the pay for the duties of that office?
I submit to the attorneys of the
Board whether they cau virtually
change the law so as to put the bur
den ot the labor of the office upon
one man, and all of the pay for the
same into the pocket of another.
Or will they venture to say that,
outside of teachiug a school, the
-uperintendent's work is worth $90
a month?

There is an urgent necessity exist
ing for an institution of this charac
ter. It is an imperative duty on
those who have received the benefits
of like institutions to throw their
support in iav-r of any measures,
just and right in themselves, that
will advance the prosperity and add
to the value of the results of a work
ot this kind. All who are indebted
to our public schools for the rudi
ments of their scholarship should
join in securiug a strong 'basis of
support tor this aid in furtherance of
the cause of education, and we be
lieve, ot morality also. The business
man will find here an open door to
usefulness, aud a greater return for
his investment than any other re
quiring so small an expenditure.
The necessity for a library and read
ing room should be so established in
the minds and hearts of all interest
ed in this kind of work, and so fully
a part of the actual necessities to
their social well-being and happi
ness, that nothing shall daunt them,
or take, in any measure, the desired
There will be means of continuing
the workings of the library without
taxing any one so that it will be felt.
The running expenses will be kept
at a minimum.
Whoever desires to see this move
ment succeed should go to work in
earnest. Do not be listless, idle, or
ow in this undertaking. It can be
done, and it will be done if there are
only a few who have a deep enough
interest in the matter to come out
and battle for it. Count the benefits
to yourself, and then consider that
your return amply compensate you
for a considerable sacrifice. You
need also the encouragement of your
neighbor. Talk the matter over
with enough interest in your own
mind to be able to arouse interest in
others. Valley.

Editor Journal: There is an
evil practiced upon our citizens by
traveling troupes who occupy our
Opera House, aud such au evil, if it
is continued, will lead to a scene that
will be regretted by all concerned,
therefore it will be well to attack it
with the pen, as the mightier weapon,
than the digits ot some stalwart de
fender of personal rights. The sell
ing of reserved seats has always been
construed as guaranteeing the seat so
purchased, as the right to possession,
hence the coupon attached to the
ticket so purchased ; there have been
frequent occasions of vexation and
chagrin, by ladies holding tickets,
and finding their seats occupied by
persons who did not even have a
coupon for their scat, and of gentle
men with ladies, having the mortifi
cation to be stoutly refused his seats,
by other occupants, and from failure
of support from the usher, who
should promptly eject all such in
truders, hunts a seat as best he can,
ofteu debarred the company of his
lady friend, rather than be the actor
of a scene not on the bills. La3t
Friday night capped the climax for
downright swindling, and utter dis
regard of the right? of the patrons of
the drama, or other entertainments
given by troupes occupying our
Opera House. One hundred reserv
ed scats were sold at an extra charge
of 25 cents each, and I believe not
more than 50 were secured to the
purchasers. The usher in charge
deliberately tearing up coupons en
titling the holder to reserved seats,
obliterating the proof of claim. It
is not my wish to incite ill-will to
wards any parties or indulge in
ebulitions of wrath, but I will sug
gest to the proprietors of the Opera
House, or to the agent selling tickets
for reserved seats that ushers shall
bc-furnished or a policeman station
ed on nights of entertainments, who
will require the enforcement of all
contracts so made by coupon attach
ment to tickets 60 sold for reserved
seats, or stand responsible for the
consequences that may follow a rep
etition of last Friday night's bull
dozing, be it man or woman.
