Prof. A. E. Clarendon, Sapt. of

ered a lecture at the Congregational

1 keynote of his address was that the
' theory and modes of education must
conform to the prevalent idea of citi-
' zenship. He made a strong plea for
, the development of character as a
I unit, and the progressive attainment
of a constantly rising ideal of human

Seyeral days ago D. Anderson
wrote to S. B.. Callaway, general man
ager of the TJ. P. road, in regard to
the erection of a new depethere and!
received the following ansmez; ander
date of Aug. 12th :
Dear Sir: Referring to .yoar favor
of August 10th. There is no doubt
that many of the stations oa the main
line should be renewed, bat the diffi
culty is that at present we have hard
work to get sufficient money to pay
onr .wages and other necessary ex
penses. It will, therefore, be im
peesible for as to nuke any improve
ments until a revival in the business
of the country eaables ns to increase
our earnings. Yoors truly,
S.E. Calxaway.
A bridge meeting was held Satur
day evening by a number of business
men ef the city. The Platte bridge
was under discussion. We do not
uaderstaad that a project has been

Miss Sampson's school closed Fri
day last. Quite a number of the
parents and others met at the school
hoase to listen to the closing exer

declamations and select readings, also
a paper prepared by the scholars, in
terspersed with vocal and instrumen
tal mnsic, after which they all repaired
to Wm. Van Owen's, where a boun
tiful dinner was spread under the
trees, served up with ice cold lemon
There were over fifty present
and all pronounced it a good time.
Perhaps ; Mr. Moncnef thinks I did
nim an mjusUce. I did not intend to.
After I had mailed my letter to the
Jocrxal I learned that he had been
here; but then I can't take back anv
thing I said. The winter-schools
were not visited at all. Bat he says
the law does not require him to visit
the schools but once a year. Well, if
he never does anything only what
the law requires, the people will be
thankful. Bat I think that in all
cemties that are as thickly settled
as Tlatte, the efllce of county super
iaUadent should be done away with
and each precinct, have a superinten
dent of its own, a good practical
teacher who should visit the school
twice each term. The expence need
not be much if any more, and the
practical benefits that would result
would more than over-balance the
extra expense. Of course all those
wjio are aspiring to the office of
caunty superintendent will object.

The Teachers Institute closed Its
sessions Satarday last. We thick
mat sapt. Moncner is to be congrat-
ulated upon its success. Assisted by i
frof. aientme and Miss Austin, the
formei for five years a teacher at Ne
braska City, the latter for seven years
superintendent of schools at Wisner,
also by Prof. Backus of this city, an
educator of experience and good
judgment, the institute was a success
each day and hour, so far as the in
structors were concerned. There
seemed to observers on the outside
more than the usual amount of ani
mation, stir and interest. We have
not space for the names of all the
teachers present, but they deserve
well of their constituency for the time
and attention they give to perfecting
themselves in a profession as honora-
ois Mti Haexui as aay among men.
All henor to sneh. The gliding years
jrill bring them iacreased wisdom aad

Mr. Editor : Public matters are
' 1- & tor public dis-
cussion, and the expenditure of nub-
. fc
lie moneys by the servants of the
people is an interesting matter when
ever it is about time to nay taxes.
Township organization is a most ex
cellent thing, becaase we can just
aboat tell who is who and what is
what, and if oar money gees scatter
ing we can at least loe-k down the
road where it has goae glimmering.
Bat enough in the way of prelimiaary.
I want to know, as a tax-payer of
Lost Creek township (and there are
scares of the same name) why the ex
town baerd used np the levy of the
spring of S4 (12,000. I believe) and
left the town ISOO in debt, I hear
that some of the board are acbiag to
answer such questioas, and I woald
like to have them fill the achiag raid
of at least one Tax-patkr.
