Some of our exchanges are coming to
the belief that republicanism is so sure
to win in Nebraska this year that it
matters not who tho nominees may be.
These are greatly mistaken. The expe
rience of the past two years has tended
to develop a sturdy and manful inde
lendence in the party, and if there wbb
ver a necessity for good, clean, strong
candidates in the republican party of
Nebraska, it is now. There was never a
time when victory was more snre if good
men are chosen, but wo should look well
to the choice. Greeley Leader.
Events of American history constant
ly emphasize the value of intelligent
manhood. Self-preservation is its first
law, and sometimes its last resort The
common people are all kings in a land of
spelling books. The balloting booth is
their throne room, the printing press
delivers their judgment scroll. They
confer responsibility and require accoun
tability in the same decree. The pomp
of ancient monarchies was a mimicry of 1
power beside our modern victories of
sense. The country waits for congress
and capital to act. Clnpp & Co's. Mar
The Toledo Blade asks how much the
democratic party has cost the country
during its thirteen months of national
power. Every manufacturer, every
wholesaler and every merchant who pre
pared for the storm sure to follow the
threat of tariff for revenue only, can
answer for himself what it meant to him.
Every workman, who has been idle for
the same cause, can make an estimate of
the difference to him between the former
times and these. Bradstreet's figures
show a I06S by reason of the reduced
volume of business, of an average of
31,000,000,000 a month. But this is not
all. There is the falling off in the selling
price of land, the losses to the holders of
stocks of various kinds, and the thous
and industries that go to make up the
business of this country. It did not
pay to invest the democratic party with
A little boy lost his life recently in a
panic at a school in Chicago, a steam
pipe having burst. An exchange, re
marking about this, says that in Minne
apolis it would be difficult for this to
happen, because the children are thor
oughly drilled to meet such emergencies.
"A fire alarm is sounded in every school
every day. The children are taught to
leave the room in a double or treble file,
as the case may be, and are marched
down the stairs, each class under the
command of its respective teacher. Thus
even wee tots acquire coolness and pres
ence of mind, and learn to see and under
stand that if they follow the teacher and
do not lose their heads the danger of
getting lost or hurt in a real fire is very
slim. They are not permitted to run
down the stairways: the columns move
in a rapid, steady walk. Yet the Adams
- school, forinstance, which contains some
1,600 pupils, is emptied in less than two
Boy aid the High School.
At the recent teachers' meeting in this
city, Sup't J. K. Stableton read a paper
entitled "How can we hold the boys for
advanced work in the high school,"
which elicited more discussion than any
other paper read before the association.
The subject is one which touches the
very life of the country, and we would
be glad if we could give, in full, Mr. Sta
bleton's paper; we give a summary.
State statistics show an average at
tendance of boys in high schools, of 31
out of a hundred pupils, some schools
having lees than 18 per cent. Often in a
class of six to twelve graduates in the
smaller towns, there will be but one boy,
"while in these same towns are numbers
of boys who have squandered the time
that would have placed them with the
graduating classes. Not only have they
squandered the time, but they have done
worse, they have received an education
in vice that tends only to unfit them for
the rights of citizenship."
There are too many teachers who have
a false conception of the plan of the
public school, thinking that the school
was made for the teacher as a respectable
means of support, and not for the chil
dren, teachers who never ask themselves
the question, What can I be to these
young people? All such should be re
placed by teachers of right motive.
Another class of teachers in the higher
grades that would materially increase the
attendance of boys by their own non
attendance, teachers that have not force
enough to meet boys as boys and be
equal to them, hence long for the time to
come when the tiresome boys, for some
reason, will be taken out; and the boys,
as they find nothing of interest in the
schools, except their own tricks to annoy
the teachers, are equally anxious for the
final day. Who can blame a really live
boy for breaking the monotony of a life
less school room by playing a trick that
enlivens the teacher for a few moments
at least? Boys in the higher grades
soon see that they are not .gaining under
such teachers, and so think the few dol
lars that can be earned at odd jobs worth
more to theimthan such schools, and the
boys are not far from right. They be
come restless under constant restraint,
their activities are not directed, and so
they drift out of school. If one-half the
teachers would sin as little against the
boys as the boys do against the teachers,
there would be a much larger per cent
of boys in the higher grades.
Such weakness in the place of teachers,
and then to even wonder why intelligent,
active, Nineteenth-century boys do not
want their instruction!
The teacher to hold the boys in school
must have unlimited faith in the out
come of boys, in their evolution into
noble men. The teacher's ideal of what
they may be helps to make them what
they should be. The true teacher does
not dwell on the imperfections of the
scholars, but continually points them to
what they are to be until, by long pre
occupation with their ideas, they become
like them. Such a teacher seldom loses
a boy. That teacher has a strong per
sonality, an inspiring, uplifting influence
that boys cannot resist; unconsciously
they become attuned to the harmony of
such a school life, and soon begin to be
lieve in the reality of the future men
their teacher thinks they are to be.
"When once a boy's ideal is formed, the
greatest fact in his education is accom
plished. The right kind of teacher for the gram
mar and high school grades will help to
keep the boys to the end of the course.
The paper dwelt on the qualities that
make the successful teacher native
ability, industry, application, and a full
consecration to the work, and thorough
sympathy with his pupil. In helping
them to higher work, he is helping them
to usef nl citizenship. Hundreds of boys,
if wisely counseled by those whom they
respect and trust, would not drop out of
school, but they are not so counseled,
and hence lose all the good they might
have derived from the higher grade work.
When the fact is well established that
none but well-qualified teachers and suc
cessful teachers will be employed in a
school, there is built up in that commu
nity a respect for the school that has a
great effect in making it a prominent
feature in the eyes of boys. This very
respect helps to interest and to hold
them. The people at large consider the
boys of that school as worthy their
The superintendent should be a man
who knows how to get hold of boys.
There are those who so fully appreciate
boys in all their moods and humors that
the moment they come among them, the
boys by an unerring instinct discover
this sympathy. In addition to this pow
er the superintendent should be a stu
dent and a worker, not a mere report and
grade compiler, but a worker among the
scholars. It is infinitely more important
that he know personally the hundreds
of scholars and throw around them the
living, active interest in their welfare
that will tend to keep them to their
proper work, than that he have a most
perfect record of the monthly or term
grades of the, to him, unknown scholars.
He should make himself felt in the
community as an educator, the same as
our Chancellor Canfield is making his
influence felt through every educational
fiber of the state, arousing our young
people and pointing, yes, and by his own
enthusiasm, leading them on, so the
superintendent, if he does his work well,
will make his influence felt in every
home in the community where he labors.
The superintendent can do more than
any other one person to hold the boys
by his own personal influence and earn
est, untiring efforts.
The best, the only way to keep a boy
interested is to keep him busy, so busy
that he realizes he is working, and not
Too close holding to grades is another
discouraging feature, and Mr. Stableton
suggests that work be done by the pupil
in grades where work is needed. Give
every possible encouragement and oppor
tunity to learn, and place them where
their associations will be helpful.
The superintendent and teacher,-who
are thoroughly alive, study carefully to
know what will interest the boys, not
only in their lessons, but in their games
and social life; being deeply interested
in what interests them, they Ioe no
opportunity for good to those under
In a fight just outside the city of De
troit, Michigan, Wednesday, between a
force of Polish laborers seeking employ
ment on the city waterworks extension
and a force under the sheriff, two men
were killed and a number fatally injured.
Judge Albion Toukgee is talked of as
a candidate for representative in con
gress from the Thirty-fourth district of
New York. If anything was needed to
deepen .his republican convictions it
came to him in the way of experience
while he lived in the south after the war.
He thoroughly believes in "free speech
and free men," the first rallying cry of
the republican party, as it always has
been its watchword. Starting out on
the proposal to oppose the extension of
slaverj-, they have ever defended the
rights and interests of all citizens, recog
nizing the fact that in the battle of life
(for it is a battle), the ballot in the hand
of the voter, intelligently cast and hon
estly counted, is far more powerful for
good than the leaden bullet. The ballot
is the freeman's weapon in this govern
ment, effective against all the ills that
come from unjust laws and unjust ad
ministrations. Judge Tourgee has prob
ably done as much as any one republi
can now living to call the attention of
the country to the rank injustice done
by allowing the negroes to be counted
as part of the basis of representation in
congress and in the electoral college, and
yet depriving them in great part of their
political rights. Mr. Tourgee recently
said: "Take away from the free-trade
democracy of the south the sixty odd
seats it holds in congress by means of
the denial of free speech and the rights
of citizenship, and northern industry
would not be paralyzed by the threat of
repeal of the protective tariff on which
the comfort and prosperity of millions
of northern homes depend."
In addition to a review of the Cleve
land Administration by ex-Governor
Russell (Dem.) of Massachusetts and
Senator Cullom (Rep.) of Illinois, the
May Forum will contain a discussion of
unusual opportuneness and point at a
time when "armies" of tramps are march
ing towards Washington of the ques
tion whether the state should give aid to
the unemployed, by Dr. Stanton Coit of
New York, who favors state aid, and by
Mr. D. McGregor Means, who argues
that state aid means socialism.
INERTIA. A DISEASE.
A few- ThoughtM I'pou the Situation by an
old Correxpondrnt of The Journal.
Deak Journal: It is a long time since
I wrote you last. It does me good to see
you and renew acquaintance with the old
familiar names. There have been very
many changes in your community in the
last few years. The old are passing away
one by one, and the younger generation
are taking their places. "Therefore be
ye also ready."
What do you think of the hard times
and this universal uprising of the labor
ing classes? Let me whisper into your
ear some of my thoughts on this subject.
These thoughts may not be worth much;
take them for what they are worth.
Let lis look at both sides for a moment.
On the one hand it is true that legisla
tion has some effect on the state of in
dustry: on account of the changes in
value which it may bring, and for other
reasons. It is also true, that there is a
constant tendency for the rich to oppress
the poor, and for those in high life to
take advantage of those lower down.
The dissatisfaction of the laboring classes
is not without foundation in these re
gards; and there is, O, ever-so-much
room for improvement. Legislative
bodies ought to be much more careful
than they are, not to do more harm than
good by their tinkering, and those who
are favorably situated in life ought to
have more regard for the rights aud the
comforts of those who are less favorably
What a lesson could be learned from
the great journalist who recently passed
away, of whom it was said, that "he was
the angel of the church in Philadelphia."
The golden rule is very fine even as a
rule, but when actually put into use it
becomes more precious than rubies or
diamonds of richest lustre. "It is more
blessed to give than to receive." Tho
greatest thing in the world is kindness,
But when all this has been freely ad
mitted, much may also be said on the
other side. First, legislation cannot
create substance. All the laws on earth
cannot produce one loaf of bread or one
thread towards a coat. Then as to the
classification into those who labor, and
those who are rich and perform no labor.
The idea so common among farmers and
mechanics that merchants, bankers and
professional men do not work, is a great
mistake. As between those who toil
with their hands, and those who toil with
their brains, the latter have the harder
time- of it by far. The nerve strain,
worry, chagrin and weariness that in
variably come to those in mercantile and
professional life are a much greater bur
den than any borne by the fanner or
mechanic. The Germans have divided
society into 3 classes, Naehrstand, Lehr
stand, Wehrstand, food producers, teach
ers and defenders. These three classes
are all necessary, 'and neither can do
without the other. There is no room
for envy, as each class bears its burdens.
Then again, it has always seemed to
me, that people of all classes in this
country have been spoiled by prosperity
and when adversity comes, as it does
now, they are utterly at a loss. It would
hardly be true to say, that Americans
are indolent, but what is true is this:
They will work with a fury for a few
hours, take the fort by one great on
slaught, and then dress up and play the
gentleman. I believe in the perseverance
of saints in more than one sense. Then
again, the division of labor has become
so rigid as to work injuriously in many
cases. A bricklayer, for example, will
lay brick. If he cannot find anybody
who wants brick piled up, will stand
around on the streets all summer and
scold. It never occurs to him to pile up
limestone for a change, or plaster, or dig,
or raise chickens, or milk cows, or saw
wood or drive nails. Take the case of
the farmer. He seems to have entirely
forgotten, if indeed he ever knew, that
the original and proper idea of farming
is to raise everything and make every,
thing that is needed, right on the farm.
It never occurred to Abraham or Jacob,
or Washington, to raise only a little
wheat and corn and buy everything else
for cash. They cared little for market
prices, because they were independent of
the whole world. A farmer ought to
raise a little grain, mainly for bis own
use, feed some cattle and hogs, also for
his own use, do all his own building,
keep his own blacksmith shop, do all his
repairing on harness and machinery, do
his own grinding (unbolted meal is the
best in the world), and purchase only bis
clothing, and that in exchange for wool
grown by himself (I do not mean ou his
own back). "Jack of all trades and mas
ter of none" Is a fallacy, because skill
and knowledge in one branch are a prep
aration for skill in another. Any man
with a fair brain, two good hands and
two good legs ought to be able to plow a
field, or preach a sermon, or build a
house, or teach a school, or ligate an
artery, or make a law, or wash a baby, or
paint a picture, or write an editorial, or
iron a shirt, or chop wood, or play the
piano, or make sour kraut, or run for
congress, and, brethren, the real difficulty
is not, that you cannot do these things,
but that you will not. Inertia is the
mildest term that will express the dis
ease of this generation.

"Caatorte Is an excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers bare repeatedly told me of iu
good effect upon their children."
Dr. G. C. Osoood,
' Caatori Is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day is cot
far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the variousquack nostrums which are
destroying their lOTed ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
gents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graTes."
