HUNTING A SITUATION.
Bead by Mfcs Ella Wells at the Teachers' As
sociation at Platte Center, Feb. 22d.
Another link in the chain of my life
was almost rounded, riveted and welded
to those before. There were sixteen
now. I had grown up in that atmos
phere of progress and activity, so
characteristic of the western country.'
Little wonder my good old aunt raised
her hands and exclaimed: ''Going to
teach what?" "Teach school of course,"
I answered indignantly, with all the
haughtiness my five feet of stature could
command. My aunt remonstrated; set
ting forth the difficulties and hardships
to bo encountered. (Poor auntie is not
up with the times, I fear). No, I went
on to explain, it is a lovely, high, noble
vocation. The children will come to me
soft as clav to be moulded into beautiful
forms; as young twigs lobe lient the
right way. I will lie their guiding spirit;
will instil into their vountr minds noble
aspirations; and when they grow up and
fill high positions, they will remember
the little school house by tho roadside,
and their hearts will le filled with grati
tude towards me who was their first in
spiration. My aunt brought me down from the
clouds by enquiring, "when I was going
to be examined?" The county superin
tendent would examine applicants in
tho high school building on the next
Saturday. I wonder if ho chose a north
room to counteract the heating effect
produced by the surrounding black
board full of questions? More probably
though to correspond with his own icy
manner. I shivered and was afraid. He
was a man "who spake no more than
was need," however, seeing I had no
pencil, ho sharpened his own and gave
it to me; this somewhat encouraged me
and I set to work.
The certificate came in due time 90
per cent. Armed with it I went to get
a school about three miles from town,
paying thirty-five dollars. "Do you
want a teacher?" I stammered. I could
think of nothing else and my cheeks
burned under the director's scrutiniz
ing gaze. "Yes, but the other directors
think best not to hire a young, inexpe
rienced teacher. I presume, of course,
yon have never taught? We have two
scholars wno study algebra, so want, an
advanced teacher. Very sorry, Miss,
would give it to you if I could." Too
young and inexperienced, thought L
All the way home I was trying to devise
6ome way to appear older, the only out
come of which was the lengthening of
my dress several inches, and formu
lating -a mode of application, viz: Mr.
, director of district I believe.
If you have not made arrangement for a
teacher during the ensuing term, I
would offer myself in that capacity.
Hoping to be able to fill the position
At the next place a woman admitted
us, and stepping outside the door,
"John, here are a couple of school
marms to see you." Directly he ap
peared, a veritable Santa Clans. "So
vou are both after our school, eh?" I
said that I was. "Well, as I am a
peaceable man and wouldn't fall ont
with my neighbor for the world, I gen
erally let the other directors decide
about the 6chool.marms." I" enquired
where the other gentlemen lived and
took my leave. Mr. B's house stood
near the road a little further on, A
man was standing in the open door with
his hands in his pockets; here was a
chance to say my little speech, that
somehow wouldn't fit at the last inter
view. "Got a certificate?" I said I had,
also told him of my interview with Mr.
A. "Why, yes, you can have the school,"
and he "turned and walked into the
house. Where's the difficulty in getting
a situation? I mused.
School would begin in a month. With
the impatience of youth I waited one,
two, three, half of the next; then a pos
tal came saying, "we feared it would be
difficult for'a lady to find board here, so
have hired n gentleman." (I learned he
had offered to teach for five dollars less
Now I was blessed with avast amount
of determination, and looked around for
another school. Soon I was on the
track of one in an adjoining county.
The director wrote me, "We have not
hired a teacher; if you have a certificate
in this county, I think there will be no
trouble about your getting it. School
begins in a week." I will take my cer
tificate to that Snpt., thought I, and he
will endorse it. lint he wouldn't; said
he did not do things that way. At the
end of the second day .1 came home
with leave to teach in both counties.
Sent a fomal application for the school
and waited. I met a friend who casu
ally remarked that a son of one of the
members of the board had been hired
for tho summer term. The.cost of that
little trip, the long list of examination
questions, the useless worry and work:
his fair promises; the thought that I
would not be able to secure a school for
the summer term were all calculated to
arouse my indignation towards all
school boards in general and this one in

in a small town, lor the winter, almost
before the summer term had begun.
"German aren't you?" when he heard my

ity of purpose prompted me not only to
get a school but to get one on the scene
of 60 many disappointments. An old
woman admitted me into the kitchen,
dining room and parlor. The member
of the school board was seated by the
stove, his can drawn well down over his
ears. I stated the object of my visit and
satisfied my catechist's. curiosity on a
number of points, viz: my age, had I
ever taught, my religion, could I teach
""gography and figgering." Then follow
ed quite a lengthy discussion on the re
sponsibilities of 'school directors; some
one was always dissatisfied with their
choice, etc. I suggested that they run
it on the lottery plan; put the names of
applicants in a box, shake them up and
draw one. Ho looked at mo with a blank
kind of a stare, then said " Miss Brown
has applied for onr school, but in case
she does not want it yon ean have it.
Next day I met Miss Brown and con
gratulated her on having secured a
school. "No, I guess not," she said.
Then I told her of my application and of
its having been previously engaged to
her. "Well, since they are so kind, per
haps I will take it."
I was getting tired, bnt I believe if
you stick to any game of chance long
enough you will win. I got the address
of fii-e school directors, wrote five letters
of application, enclosing in each a self
addressed envelope, and waited. In
three days one came back in a lady's
delicate ' handwriting, telling me the
school was already engaged. Another
came in a week saying "got here two
late, iust encaged a teacher." Two never
returned: the fifth read thus: "Our
school is not engaged for the next term;
come at once and we will try and make
some arrangements." I went, signed a
contract for three months, but some how
I had lost some of my enthusiasm and
interest in the work.
Sometime after, I noticed a coolness
on the part of a friend toward me. The
whys and wherefores were this: She had
taught a term in this district, and went
away with the promise of the school for
next term; had come back to find the
contract signed, and supposed I had in
trigued against her.
Next year I am going to bribe the
board and get a school in town. Per
haps then I will be able to write np my
subject more comprehensively.

Ed. Journal: It is a great gratifica
tion for a person to know that his prin
ciple is right and sound, political or sec
ular, and tho fact is demonstrated every
day even by people who try to ignore it,
yet have to adopt the principle in their
ever- day business in order to make it a
success. There is a class of people who
try to make it appear that protection to
home industries can be maintained
without enactments of law, or any guard
for their defense. But any one who de
sires to post himself can easily see that
it will not work.
One of the strongest planks in the re
publican platformis the plank of pro
tection of home industries. And every
avenue of industry of our country, to be
successful, rests alone on the fact that
it must be protected, as the only sure
way to the upbuilding of our conntry to
an independent, prosperous and wealthy
position among the nations of Christen
dom. It is the only plan to make com
modities cheap, and our markets regular
and lasting for all time to come. And
to illustrate these facts, I wish to quote
a part of an article read at tho late
Farmers' Institute, written under the
head of Home Industries. I do not
know the writer's political belief, neither
is it necessary. AH I want to show is
that the protection of home industries is
the necessary, proper and only feasible
plan to make onr country prosperous,
and wealthy. The principle is just as
necessary for the whole country, as it is
for our county town. He says: "While
it must be admitted that the milling in
dustry of Nebraska far exceeds its con
suming capacity, yet you see our (Treat
and grand state overrun with flour from
the south, shipped in under much lower
railroad rates than Nebraska mills are
granted by local roads for the same
distance in onr state, thus forcing Ne
braska mills to curtail their out put, run
on half time or less, working not only
great harm to the milling industry of
our state in general, but to the infinite
injury of Nebraska wheat growers, de
priving them of their legitimate, local,
home market." Further on he says:
"The cause of this is: First, lower rates
in favor of Missouri and Kansas, dis
criminating against Nebraska mills.
Second, the relative lower prices of win
ter wheat flour in the world's market.
Third, and not least, the greed of some
merchants to encourage the use of for
eign flour for their own personal gain,
regardless of the permanent injury in
flicted by such a course on home indus
tries, and of the loss to the farmer, by
depressing home markets," Further on
he says: "What I have said is a fair rep
resentation of the state of affairs in onr
line of home industries, and is probably
more or less true throughout Nebraska."
And he might have added throughout
the United States if the democratic
party had their way about it. Every
citizen of the United States should heed
the appeal of Mr. Schupbach. Support
home industries, your mills, your groce
ries, merchants, breweries, cigar fac
tories and in fact all and everything that
tends to build up industries, encourage
others to come and build more, by that
means we will be happy, wealthy and

am opposed to any law that makes the
rich richer and the poor poorer. "Pro
pose to buy where I can get goods
the cheapest," forgetting in his blind
ness that if the rich get richer, all poor
people mnst advance in proportion, or
nearly so. The notion that the poor will
get poorer is a false assertion; people
who believe that in order that the poor
may prosper, it is necessary to cripple
the rich and destroy their business,
should, I think, go and soak their heads,
for there is no excuse in existance for
any such belief. If a colony or nation
is prosperous and wealthy all its mem
bers must and do share the same, the
drones are fat and sleek if not clothed
with so much power, and have their
share of the sweets according to their
natural ability to procure them.
Senator Saeman's Speech.
There was no reply from the demo
cratic side of the senate to Mr. Sher
man's plain declarations as to the origin
and condition of the so-called negro
question. The senator from Ohio
charged, and provoked no effective reply,
that if the negro were suddenly endowed
with all the rights of citizenship it was
the steadfast, malicious, well-planned
determination of the southerners to
keep him in a state of real serfdom,
while nominally free, that made his citi
zenship with suffrage the only available
means of resistance. - While the merit

his newly acquired freedom and his ab
solute citizenship. But the south made
this impossible. Its first acts after the
surrender were toward the exclusion of
the negro from the rights of man; ho was
to have no place upon any jury, he was
to be a discredited witness in suits be
tween himself and a white man; ho was
not to be left free to seek employment
or to gain the best terms in exchange
for his labor; he was to be a hereditary
serf or peon, as he had leen a hereditary
slave; he was to gain nothing but free
dom from the auction block; not even
that if he were found to te " a vagrant,"
and laws were constructed which made
vagrants of nearly all negroes in the
south. Tho south itself is ramon.iililA

The well-meant act of congress has,
however, been made abortive by fraud
and force. The negro has the right but
not the power to vote in the southern
states. These states have a representa
tion in congress and in the electoral col
lege wholly disproportioned to their
voting populations. The right to vote is
one thing, the power another; bnt where
the right is the power should be, and
congress should see that where it ought
to be it shall be. Party politics have
nothing to do with the issue. Mr. Sher
man well said that if every negro in the
south should vote the democratic ticket
the republican party would lie as strong
as it now is, perhaps even stronger. For
nearly thirty years the republican party
has maintained power by aid of a ma
jority of white votes freely cast and fair
ly counted. The vote of the negroes in
the south if freely counted would 'in
crease the republican majorities, but
would not make the election of republi
can presidents more certain. The econ
omic not the party question lies behind
the negro question. When the necrro

a republican, he will not be the despised
and oppressed creature that he now is in
