Lincoln and says they had a splendid
rain Monday morning. Tho bacca
laureate sermon of the twenty-third com
mencement of the State University was

highly interested audience.
One can notice the difference be
tween grasses this dry weather; in

two inches high and brown looking,
while just across the alley in another

a charge of criminal assault; he gave

secure his position.
Before her departure Miss Spencer,
language teachor in the high school,
was surprised by her friends of the
Presbyterian church presenting her a

in to Omaha on the TJ. P. Near Silver
Creek the guide rod on the "near" side
became disconnected, smashed through
the fireman's side of the cab, striking
where the fireman had stood but a mo
ment before. A spoke of the driver was
broke, chunks of metal were knocked
out of the wheel, and the entire ap
pearance of the engine showed the
danger of "matter out of place."
A baker at St. Edward is authority
for saying that he has been compelled

as to the nights on which they will
practice, as he has demonstrated that
his bread will not rise, on those nights,
nud an incubator at the Tolman place
fails to hatch a chick since tho band
began to play. The Sun is responsible
for the spread of this story. Perhaps
changing the tunes would do some good.
The Monroe Looking Glass says:
Rev. Dr. Goodale tho Episcopal minis
ter from Columbus preached a splendid
sermon to a large and interested con
gregation at Monroe hall last Sunday.
The reverend gentleman made a very
favorable impression on our people, and
it is hoped he may preach here often in
the future The exhibition of school
district 27, held in Monroe hall on June
1, was quite a success. Miss Maude
Njiylor, the teacher, will develop into a
e.ider in the ranks of drill masters.
We are pleased to be able to an-

- Everyono has faults enough and
trials enough without the addition of
what may be added by the peddlers of
false rumors. It is fortunate that char
acter and reputation are two entirely
different things, for when idle and
vicious tongues repeat falsehoods, their
character, the solid result of years of
honest worth, will speak for the indi
vidual and wrestle successfully with the
lies. The saying of the poet is very

The athletic park of the Y. M. C. A.

At the Wood, Bancroft & Co's. ranch
in Stanton county, under the manage
ment of Mr. Mortimer, there is a tract
of two hundred acres devoted to al
falfa, and the manager makes quite a
specialty of it, finding it very profitable
in the feeding of cattle and hogs. Wal
ter Elly of Madison tells us that many
buy defective seed, and then when it
does not do well, blame is laid on the
climate or soil, when it belongs to the
man who furnishes the seed; it is true
that the plant the first season is tender,
but its roots go deep, forming reservoirs
for the holding of moisture, and draw
ing their supply from below.
E. Pohl reports that the singing
societies are hard at practice at Omaha,
Lincoln and Seward, in anticipation of
the Saengerfest here in August. At
Omaha there are two societies of forty
singers, who are doing very fine work
practicing, and who will doubtless sur
prise those who hear them at the Saen
gerfest. Besides these, there will be an
excursion of citizens on picnic day, and
Nebraska's metropolis will be well rep
resented both in talent and numbers.
Lincoln, besides her singers, will bring
a brass band of sixteen pieces. Seward
will have her twelve singers and a host
of citizen visitors. Mr. Pohl says that
all are thinking of their sojourn here
with the brightest anticipations. He
goes this week to Grand Island, Madi
son and Stanton. The Journal can
assure them that the Columbus Maen
nerchor has never yet in the quarter of
a century (nearly), of its existence, been
unsuccessful in any of its undertakings,
and for this occasion extra efforts are
being made, and there is no doubt but
the occasion will be among the very
best and notable state gatherings of the

The estimate of funds needed for ex

817,995, pretty close to 318,000. The
council are not obliged to use all this,
but only so much as may be needed.
The electors, by vote, for any purpose
authorized by law, can direct the issu
ance of bonds of the city to a limited
extent beyond the amount of the esti
mate. All appropriations end with the
fiscal year for which they are made. The
law requiring officials to prepare an
estimate of expenses for the ensuing
year, and publish it along with a state
ment of the entire revenue of the city
for the previous fiscal year, is a very
good one, as in this way the voters, the
tax-payers, the bond-holders, the capi
talists who hold mortgages or judgments
upon real estate iitho city are informed
of important matters (especially if the
printer does his work for nearly noth
ing), that affect their interests. Bonds
of the city are like mortgages given by
individuals, and the same general prin
ciples should control, viz: pay cash; if
bonds must bo issued to obtain it, let it
be only on necessity, after due consid
eration, and then see to it that the im
provements ordered shall be worth all
An ordinance has been passed by the
city council authorizing the levy of a

works; four aud a half mills for paying
interest on the Loup river bridge bonds
and one and a half mills for interest on
Platte river bridge bonds.

ENJOINED FROM ELECTING.
Tke ttmrta May Decide a Dhnited I'oUt in
Election of School Superintendent.
Dr. D. T. Martyn and C. H. Sheldon
filed a petition in equity Monday of last
week in the district court against the
schoot'bomrd of this city, and asking
that that body be enjoined from holding
or attempting to hold any meeting of
the board for the purpose of electing,
appointing or hiring a superintendent
or public instruction prior to the first
Monday of July, 1894, and before the
election of officers of the board for the
ensuing year and until after the mem
bers and each of them elected at the last
election become acting members of tho
said board. The main grounds of com
plaint are that the present superintend
ent, J. M. Scott, is a candidate for
re-election; that, in order to further his
candidacy and to prevent a fall, fair and
intelligent action of the said board, "for
more than two months last past has
falsely and fraudulently published and
caused to be circulated tho report that
his election to said office of superin
tendent was assured and that five mem
bers of said board were pledged to vote
for him and that there was no use for
any other person to apply for the said
office of superintendent;" that this had
inaucea a large number not to be appli
cants for the position.
In the absence of Judges Post and
Sullivan from the city, a temporary in
junction was allowed by County Judge
uensxey. Tne answer day is July 9.
At the adjourned meeting of the board

Bixbv of the Lincoln Journal has
t jiimortalized some of our local musi
cians in ono of his comic poems, which
we reproduce, along with his introduc
tory statement of facts:
"On August 24, 25 and 20 the saenger
fest of the Nebraska Saengerbund will
be in session at Columbus, and tho at
tendance promises to be very largo. Of
active singers thero will be from Omaha
75, Lincoln 18, Seward 1, Grand Island
20, Madison 12, Stanton 18 and Colum
bus 20, making a grand chorus of 179
voices, besides bands from both Lincoln
and Omaha. The Germans are a music
al people. WThen they feel good they
sing, and when sorrowful they sing
louder and longer than ever. The saen
gerfest at Columbus will be a happy
event, and those who stay away will
have something to feel sorry for as long
as they live.
"I'm going to the eaeDcerfe.it
And take the folks along
1 go hecaiiBP I think it best
And take delight in song.
They may not let mo lift my voice
In melancholy wnil;
Hut offer me the same old choice
'Keep mill or go to jail.'
I nsed to hear Gob Falbatim fling.
It thrilled my weary eonl
And turned my wintry days to spring,
For he and Emil Pohl
Had oice that the dead might wake
The silent streets among.
And speedily their graves forsake
To hear the songs they sung.
Ous Sehroeder, as he used to 'was,'
(The niem'ry is not dim)
It aiways made me blue because
I could not sing like him.
And then John Stanffer bless his heart -
I doted some on him
His voice would fit most any part
And fill it to the brim.
And I shall le there, rest assured,
And mingle with the horde.
If proper means can be secured
To liquidate my board."
