M. H. Barber, editor of the Nance
County Journal, is an applicant for the
position of Commandant of the Soldiers'
Home at Grand Island. Having been a
soldier of the republic, he would have a
sympathetic, brotherly feeling for the
"old boys" under his charge, and having
been a Nebraska editor for the past
eight years, he would appreciate the
public importance of honesty, capability
and fidelity. If he should be so fortu
nate as to get the appointment, we feel
sure that he would honor himself and
the state in the discharge of the im
portant duties of the position.
From the Newman Grove Era we
glean tho following: Daniel Wenrick's
team "becoming frightened at some poles
he was handling he attempted to hold
them by catching hold of some part of
the harness, and the team running close
to a straw stack crushed him between
the wagon and the stack, and was then
thrown under the wheels, in which posi
tion he was found, still conscious. At
the stack the team broke loose from the
wagon. An examination revealed the
fact that his collar bone, both shoulders
and several ribs were broken. He died
about one o'clock the following day."
The accident occurred on the 8th. Mr.
Wenrick lived two miles south of New
man Grove, and was in his 67th year.
John Gerrard, a young man who has
been working for Norman Himes on his
farm near Richland, now languishes in
jail for attempting to pass a forged
check for five dollars. He was in town
Friday and proceeded to get drunk in
the most approved fashion and while in
this condition, he says, wrote out a
check for five dollars, and signed Mr.
Himes's name to it He tried to pass it
in one or two places at Dworak & Dol
zal's saloon and at SchuBter & Kolm's
restaurant, but it was easily detected to
be a forgery and the gentleman was
arrested by Sheriff Kroeger and locked
up. He acts very penitent now and says
he would never have thought of doing
such a thing had he not been drunk.
F. W. Dworack of Schuyler was not
just right in more particulars than one,
it seems. The Sun says that during his
absence his wife took it upon herself to
open a very suspicious missive that
arrived through the post-office with his
other mail, and behold it was a message
of love from a young girl at Columbus!
Mrs. D. answered it, explaining matters
and her own distressed situation. She
received a polite reply, an apology of
course, that is the way Columbus
young ladies always do when they find
themselves in tho wrongl, stating that
Mr. Dworak represented himself as a
single man and the writer was thankful
to be posted as to the status of him.
This, too, is the unvarying way of the
Columbus voung girl her affections are
so strong, and her gratitude so respon
sive, that even such small favors as the
one referred to, are very thankfully re
ceived. The Schuyler and Columbus papers,
(other than The Journal) have had con
siderable to say about Will. Foster and
one of the Fox sisters. It seems that
the young couple wanted to get married,
and two of Miss Fox's sisters opposed
the match, and succeeded in getting
their sister to go home with them. This
did not please the young man. He
could not 'so easily give up the girl of
his affections. The Schuyler Sun winds
up the latest information with these
words: "We since hear from a reliable
source that the outcome is the couple
will be married after all. The sticking
point was the girl is a Catholic, he be
longs to the broad, wide, wicked world.
He has consented to 'jine the church,'
which makes all things better than they
ever were before! The prospective
groom has a reputation of always having
been a hard-working, industrious, sober
The laws of this state require in
struction in the public schools on the
subject of stimulants and narcotics, but
to what extent this instruction has been
given has not generally been known, but
it has been supposed that the instruction,
here and there at least, was not very
thorough, and so the state superintend
ent is determined to find ont something
about the matter, so as to give the facts
in his forthcoming report. Consequent
ly, he has sent to each county superin
tendent a list of questions to be answer
ed. It will be interesting to read the
answers in several counties that we know
of, among them Douglas, Dodge, Colfax,
Cuming, Butler and Platte: "Is physio
logical temperance taught regularly and
systematically in your schools? During
what portion of the year? For how
many weeks? How many lessons a week?
How many minutes to a lesson? Is this
instruction oral or through text books?
What text books, if any, are used? How
many of your schools are supplied with
illustrative charts? Are the same tests
of proficiency required in this study as
in geography and other subjects? Is in
struction in this subject given to all
grades of pupils in the schools or is it
given to those only who study the gen
eral subject of physiology?"
