South Omaha's stock market Satur
day was even lighter than is usual for
the last day of the week, only twenty
nine fresh loads being reported in the
yards. The total sales were: cattle 671
head; hogs 469; sheep 553. The few
beef cattle on sale were nothing extra
and the buyers took their time. In
cows and heifers the past week there
has been a great slump in values. The
holiday demand filled, the market fell.
At the end of the week this class of
stock was 25c to 50c lower than on Mon
day or Tuesday. Stackers and feeders
were in pretty good demand all the
week (except Saturday) and as the sup
ply was light, the market was strong.

A number of gentlemen from the
city were present Sunday afternoon at
Guy C. Barnum's residence to hear him
read concerning theosopby. Most of
the time was spent in reading portions
of the scripture which are regarded by
Theosophists as illustrating what they
believe is the main doctrine in their
creed, viz., re-incarnation. The account
of the creation; Jacob blessing his chil
dren; Job's declaration as to the future;
Matthew xvii, 12; St. John ix, 1; Mark
vi. 16; Revelations iii, 12, etc. Mr. Bar
num stated at the close of the reading
that this would be the last of the meet
ings at his residence. He had wished to
give an opportunity to all who desired
to learn what Theosophists believe, to
hear some, at least, of the primary doc
trines. Recognizing the fact that prob
able stormy weather, and the distance
from town were objections to the place
of meeting, he wished to secure a room
in the city where meetings could be
held, and a library kept, accessible to
all who wished to inform themselves on
A. W. Armstrong has shown us a
copy of the first number of the Maryland
Journal and Baltimore Advertiser, print
ed at Baltimore August 20, 1773. The
paper is yellow with age; has the old
fashioned s's; spells 6uch words as honor
and labor with a "u", gives the "current"
market prices in pounds, shillings and
pence; has for its motto, "The freshest
advices both foreign and domestic," and
contains such advertisements as, "Stray
ed from town, last night, six wagon
horses, and a servant man named Wal
lace, the property of Leigh Master, esqr."
One hour's study of such publications as
this will give a better insight into history,
than many devoted to a mere conning of
dry facts in regard to battles. One looks
here and, as in a glass, sees the common
people at work in the fields, shops and
offices, and can even realize why the
owner of men should wish to recover his
"property" in human flesh, strayed off
with the other property. "The world

At the City School Friday Last.
A special program of literary exer

nearly all tho grades of our city schools
and a large number of patrons were in
attendance. The exercises were appro

them. In all tMTwarda roomawere
combined in the preparation of 'the pro

an excellent program. The exercises
lasted during the entire afternoon and
showed careful preparation and a deep
interest in the work. They had extend
ed an invitation to the ninth grade in
return for an invitation given them a
few weeks ago. A wholesome rivalry
exists between the grades and each puts
forth the best effort to surpass the oth
er. Tho exercises wero uniformly good.
The discussion showed earnest and
careful preparation and was very inter
esting throughout. The paper and
other exorcises well merit special men
tion, but space will not permit.
Mrs. Brindley's and Miss Watkins
room joined forces and gave most inter
esting exercises. Their numbers con
sisted of a doll drill by the little girls
and a military drill by the boys, together
with appropriate recitations and singing.
Many patrons and others were present
to enjoy the treat prepared for them.
Mrs. Watts and Miss Ward combined
their rooms and gave exercises appro
priate to Christmas. Thirty-five or more
visitors were present, all of whom were
highly entertained by the efforts of the
children. The exercises consisted of
recitations, dialogues and singing, ac-
campanied by the comic actions of th
Miss Matthews room also gave an
inteiesting program of recitations,
singing and appropriate acting. It is
needless to say that the afternoon was
enjoyed by all.
Exercises in Mr. Weaver's room were
postponed till after holidays.
Of the exercises in Miss Taylor's room
wo have no definite report, but her room
was tastefully decorated, and it is fair to
suppose that her literary exercises were
up to the standard.
Mr. Leavy's and Miss Coffey's roomB
joined forces, and under the manage
ment of the literary society of which
Emil Ilohen is president, tho exercises
were faithfully presented, and exceed
ingly interesting and enjoyable to the
many visitors present. Recitations,
songs, (duetts, trios and choruses) dia
logues, a stump speech and a debate
were the features of the occasion, many
of the recitations having a reference to
Christmas, and illustrating the idea of
"Peace on earth, good will to men."
Hard work during the past four
months, well merifs the vacation of two
weeks during holidays. Good and faith
ful work has been done, and a short
period of rest will give renewed strength
to undertake the work of the remainder
of the year.

Weekly paper Anna Basmv
The oldfashioaed school
was, by virtue of hkoccapatioe, a boas;
a "master," and was so called. He was
expected to have at hand a good bsseh
rod, a cowhide, a f erale or a cat-o'-aiae
tails as aid in keeping the unruly ia sub
jection or' in briagiag then to tisas.
"Larnin an' lickin'" was oae of the
commonest sayings as expressive of the
mode of culture, in the district school of
half a century ago. This has been won
derfully changed and with the change
has come an element that we notice is
attracting attention here and there.
Most teachers now are women and not
men; their ways of school government
are somewhat different from those of
men, putting greater emphasis upon the
power of kindness and gentleness, rather
than sternness and physical force. It
happens, occasionally, that taese'quali
ties are not duly appreciated aad it is
becoming somewhat of a question wheth
er the teacher shall inflict any corporal
punishment, or whether the discretion- -ary
power be lodged altogether with the
superintendent of schools, or whether
the more serious offences against the
peace and quiet of the schools should -not
be referred to the peace-officers of
the community. There is much could
be said for either way and against it, but
it is probably best to leave it, as most of
the school authorities do in the discre
tion of those in charge. The boys who
would play foot-ball by kicking the
I shins of their captain instead of kicking
the ball and forwarding it to its destina
tion, mast know that a teacher (a lady
teacher especially) is employed primarily
as instructor in the sciences, and not as
a wielder of the rod. School-going along
with school-keeping is a hnninoon sad
should be conducted on business princi
ples; each has a place to occupy, and
duties to perform to the beet of their
ability. The welfare of the pupil is the
guiding sentiment of the public school
system all through. The welfare of each
school in the land, as a little community
of seekers after knowledge, ought to
have sufficient force of itself to check
the tendency of any to violate the pro
prieties. On the moral vigor and the.
intelligence of the rising generation and
those who will succeed them depend,
nndor Providence, the perpetnity of our
civil and religious liberty, the effective
ness of our free institutions, and, inci
dentally, the progress, to some extent, of
mankind in general, in all that goes to
make the race better and bring it nearer
the ideal which it has continually in
view. These thoughts are suggested by
a question directed to the editor of The
Jocrxai our reply to which is: The
chief requisites of a good teacher are,
first, good moral character; ability to
govern; aptness to teach; conscientious
thoroughness. After this, hold the
teacher responsible for the success of
