The Wheeler County Gazette is a
new venture in the newspaper field
that is "scoring" for a position among
the press of the state at Cummings

A. L. Stewart, late of the Seward

which is attested by the clean, bright
appearance of his paper.

Mr. James McNulty, the late able
editor and proprietor of the North

a pleasant call last Saturday. He is

rollers to wielding the faber. He

Out of charity for the editor of
the Wahoo Tribune we are willing to
believe that the misstatements in its
wholly unfair and incorrect account
of the recent ball game between the
Keystones and Wahoos at that place
did not come of a personal observa
tion of the game by any responsible
person, but is the version given by
its "kicking" ball club iu a vain effort
to shield themselves from the censure
of all honorable persons, by turning
attention from the real cause of their
action a dirty collusion with the
betting element to break the game up
in a row if it was likely to go against
them and throw the responsi
bility ou that much abused individ
ual, the umpire. As to the charge of
having given the Keystones two or
three bases on balls, the record of the
game will show it to be entirely false.
In fact the account, as writteu up iu
the Tribune, is as false and'imaginary
as are any grounds for complaint by
the ball players. In the haste in
selecting a point to make the "kick"
on, when all hope of winning by fair
play was gone, they tackled a point
that was so entirely nntenable aud
flimsy that they must needs change it
or acknowledge that their complaint
was entirely unfounded; and they
now claim that the umpire had staked
money on the game and offer to back
the assertion with responsible ( ?) wit
nesses. Any person who has had
experience in the matter of honesty
of Wahoo ball players and their
backers will not doubt their ability
to "prove anything, -if misstatesiemts
go for anything. The umpire did not
bet upon the game and says that not
to exceed twenty - five cents ever
passed out of his hands while at
Wahoo. Were he dishonest enough
to bet upon a game in which he was
umpire, it is not to be supposed for
a moment that he is fool enough to
boldly hand over the money at the
ball grounds. As far as the Key
stones are concerned, let it be under
stood this matter is settled. They
accomplished all they had In view,
which was jto beat. the Wahaos fairly
and they did it did it twice and: got
all the money that -was at jtaflT by
them and that was only their share of
the gate money. And now they are
through with them. ' --VvtI ,

The B. & M's. of Omaha were not
prepared to meet our boys on Satur
day last, which was quite a disap
pointment to devotes of the game.
Seventeen to nothing jn favor of the
Keystones was the result of the second
game with the Mil fordi,.,. Wake's
twisters and the, new fangied 'rules
broke 'era all up.
The Fremont Herald is in error as
to the score of the recent game of the
Keystones and Wahoos. At the time
.of the kick the game stood 6 to 5 in
favor of the Keystones in the last half
of the eighth inning, the Keystones at
bat, two men out, and man on second
base, they going to bat last.
The Weeping Water club who were
shut out at Weeping Water by the
Keystones retaliated by downing the
boys to the tune of 6 to 4 last Thurs
day on the Keystone's grounds. They
are a crack club, fully worthy the
steel of -tho Keystones, and as the re
sult will show the game was hotly
.contested and yery interesting, though
it. is only fair to say that the Key
stones did not have their best nine in
the field, and did not consider they
needed them. The result will teach
them not to rely too much on former
victories as a criterion for future
games. The Weeping Waters are a
gentlemanly lot of fellows and defeat
was deprived of half its sting by their
The Plattsmouth Herald comments
on the recent game in that city as
In the Columbus nine the players
all showed that they were crack men
at the-game, and they opened up the
first inning with a what-a-soft-snap-we-have
air, that was delightful to
see, and they were a little surprised
to see one of tho Plattsmouth boys
trot in over the home plate. The
Keystone's catcher's hands were in
poor shape, and so in the second in
ning a change was made with a fielder
and the home nine caught ou to the
inning to the tune of four runs ; after
this sore hands and soft snaps were
forgotten and the Keystones played
for grim death and succeeded only
with the aid of a rank decision of the
umpire in lieing the game at six and
six at the close of the ninth inning.
The tenth inning opened with im
mense excitement, Plattsmouth going
to the bat and amid the wildest ap
plause scoring three runs before the
Keystones could retire three men. In
their half of the inning the Columbus
nine pulled one man through and
If the Plattsmouth nine will come
up here the Keystones will give them
a pointer or two on entertaining a
visiting club, and give them a taste of
their "for grim deatn" playing. That
loud crowing is a little previous, aa
it's over the first game.
A Dramatic Treat.
Our citizens will be afforded an
opportunity, Tuesday evening, Oct.
2d, at the Opera House, of witnessing
the production of Mrs. E. D. E. N.
Southworth's celebrated New York
Ledger story, and the greatest of all
southern comedy dramas, "The Hid
den Hand," by the only standard
dramatic company o.vor organized for
an exclusive and special stage presen
tation of this fine play Whiteley's
Original niddeu Hand Co. The Com
pany have met with phenomenal suc
cess everywhere, the press of our
larger cities giving them the highest
praise. Every member has been
selected with a view to their respect
ive adaptability to their various parts,
and the entire drama will be produced
with tho Company's own special
scenery, realistic accessories, complete
stage mountings, appropriate planta
tion scenes, etc.
In the dual character of "Capitola"
and "Archie, the Newsboy," the fam
ous singing soubrette and charming
comodienne, Hattie Irving, is a strong
feature of the company, while as
"Wool," a "gemman of color," Billy
Robinson, one of the best-known char
acter comedians on the American
sage, and late one of the principal
members of Haverly's Mastodon Min
strels, etc., is sure to prove a favorite
with any audience. The Company
announce an unusually strong cast,
and, as they play a new version of this
well-known story, and the only one
ever approved, endorsed or author
ized by Mrs. Southworth as being ber
correct story, it is but fair to antici
pate a better and more perfect
performance of "The Hidden
Hand" than has ever before been
given by any traveling troupe. The
Compauy come to ua highly endorsed,
and we bespeak for them a crowded
house on their appearance in our city.
The complacent and self-satisfied
air which farmers generally wear
since the cold wave passed us with
out any frost is pleasant to behold.
And when we come to think of the
calamities that have fallen upon other
states in the way of drouth, cyclones,
devastating storms, and recently by
the sharp frosts which even visited
our sister state Iowa, as far south as
Keokuk, and did incalculable damage
to all kinds of products, we certainly
have great cause to feel that fortune
has favored us"; and wo should not be
liable to the charge of boasting if we
shout to the unfortunate of other
states that Nebraska is the haven that
should be sought by all who would
be prosperous and happy. Such in
ducements as Nebraska still offers the
poor man as well as the capitalist will
not go hegging, and soon cheap lands
will be a thing of the past, and the
opportunities to grow rapidlv rich by
a small investment be the exception
instead of the rule. -
At the anti-monopoLy judicial
convention for the fourth-judicial dis

was the unanimous choice of the con
vention for district attorney. A dis

The etymology of the term leads us
to consider spelling as an inseparable
art in connection with a written or
printed alphabetic language. It is to
a considerable degree an imitation of
the forms approved by others, and
does not involve, commonly speak
ing, anything more than a retentive
memory to become a good speller.'
The extent to which any one may
perfect himself or herself in the abil
ity to reproduce any certain combi
nations, otherwise known as words,
abbreviations, etc., depends on three
particulars, perhaps more, viz:
1. A preparation of. the mind for
this kind' of thought. If it comes
naturally enough to the student or
child to combine letters into words,
something has gained by this talent.
Should the child have an aversion to
the laborious processes of transcrib
ing his own thoughts, or the still
more tedious one of copying piece
meal the ideas and sentences of oth
ers, something must be done to arouse
or create an interest in the study for
the training it involves.
2. An action of the muscles used in
performing the mechanical part in
harmony with the action of the mind
itself. Every movement in the suc
cessive formation of letters must be
subject to the control of the creative
force of the brain. The muscles of
the throat and the vocal organs are
called into exercise in oral spelling,
and promptness in correct spelling
must result from a careful training of
the voice on the alphabetic elements
3. Tho importance of acquiring a
thorough knowledge of the writteu
and printed form of one's own lan
guage, and the well known fact that
many errors creep in through the
misuse of the alphabetic forms, should
cause every person who cares for
literature or literary pursuits to ex
pend the necessary effort to become a
Through the kindness of Col. G. W.
Stevens the teachers of the institute
were favored with an opportunity to
examine Patterson's written speller, a
system based on three points, to wit :
the spelling of words, the definitions
of words, and the use of sentences
containing the words spelled and de
fined. The work is carried on thro'
three stages. The beginner devotes
his chief attention to the spelling of
words ; in the next stage, he also de
fines words ; and in tho third course
the framing of appropriate sentences
prepares the student for a course in
language lessons, and for the more
complex rules of grammar and rhe
If it is claimed that a mau should
be called of God before he enters the
Christian ministry, how much more
should a teacher be called if not of
God of a deep, ardent love for his
work? How many a young Miss is
willing to serve the state in the
school-room for, a small salary until
well, until she gets married? How
many young men resort to teaching
because they can't do anything else,
while others, after leaving college,
spend a few years in teaching before
entering upon their chosen profes
sion? Experience, bitter enough at
times, and a little money may be
gained thereby, but far too often at
the expense of the pupils. Can such
teaching be of the highest order? No
doubt, the man will once make a bet
ter lawyer, doctor, or minister, but
the school suffers. A good teacher
grows; teaching the same subject
over and over again will enable him
to do better work every time. Di
rectors would do well iu reluBiug to
hire one who does not intend to re
main with them a reasonable number
A good teacher must be a great
enthusiast; must be able to excite an
interest in his pupils; must love to
study ; be apt to teach ; must love the
children, and be able to adapt his
teaching to the one taught; must be
of great hope aud patience ; willing to
repeat and re-repeat ; willing to for
give seventy times seven times. We
all like to teach the bright boy (I
suppose it is because he takes care of
himself) but, wbeu the dull . one
comes and the average pupil is
pretty dull how few have the pa
tience? Educatiou in its best and broadest
sonse ia development, a generation of
power. Boys aud girls must be made
to think for themselves. How sad it
is to hear pupils glibly repeating
forms of words, with which no fault
can be found, except that they ex
press absolutely no meaning to those
repeating them! Fellow - teachers,
may not this spectacle still be wit
nessed in nine-tenths ot our schools?
I presume you are thinking that I am
telling you nothing new ; but remem
ber, the Book says that there is noth
ing new under the sun. In school
teaching, as in everything else, the
ideal best cannot olten be done. We
must try to do the beat under the
circumstances. That fellow was wit
ty, as well as wise, who claimed to be
a "mean" man all around.
