Some of the tract produced 100 bushels

average of 100 bushels next year.
The annual meeting of the Nebraska
beet sugar association is to be held at
Hastings, Feb. 2 and 3. Reduced rates

their products by the means of sugar
beet culture, will have a market for them.
Commander J. H. Culver of the
Grand Army has sent to each post in

after those that need help is among the
first duties not only of the Grand Army
but of the community at large.

There is no doubt but that great
storms of wind generate an unusual
amount of electricity, and this may be
one of the causes of the peculiar exhila

surely must be some unusual chemical

say: "Well, when I went out this morn
ing and felt the old-time buzzard, it
seemed like meeting and greeting a
long-lost friend."

The Telegram has this to say of the
proposed convention here, spoken of in
last week's Journal: "Mr. .Fort's idea
is that the people should not wait for
capital to come into the state .by way of.
the trans-Mississippi exposition, or by,
any other route, but should buckle in
and start up factories here and there
through co-operation between the farm
ers and town business men. Mr.JVjrt is
a gentleman of great ability and energy,
and when he tackles an enterprise be
never lets up till something comes of it.
If the convention is held here, the peo
ple of Columbus will see to it that our
visitors are properly cared for."
Cooperative institutions of different
kinds are the order of- the day, and .the
idea seems to be taking a new hold upon
the general public. The Seward -Reporter
contains the following paragraph:
"Prospects for the mutual fire insurance
association are improving rapidly. A
large number of members have been
added during the past week, and more
names are being put on the list daily.
All the towns in the county will have
been visited by the close of this week,
and all will be represented in the organ
ization. Notice of the first annual
meeting will be issued very soon, as the
meeting will be held as early in January
as possible. Official notice' of the date
of the meeting will be sent to each
The Seward Blade gives an account
of a jeweler named Holbrook who it
seems has been guilty of receiving
watches to mend, and then pawning
them with Sam Adler, a pawnbroker of
Lincoln. In speaking of the matter, the
Blade further says: "There has been
much complaint against Adler about the
manner in which he conducts bis busi
ness, much stolen property being found'
in his shop which he never reported to
the authorities as required by law, and J
County Attorneys Thomas and Collins
propose to make it warm for him. He
was warned some time ago not to receive
any more watches from Holbrook, but
he goes right along doing business his
own way. People who find their stolen
property in Lincoln experience a good
deal of trouble in getting it again, on
account of the peculiar methods of the
police, who seem to want to bleed every
body all they will stand before recover
ing their property."
The public school system will not
accomplish all it ought until some way
can be provided for the attendance of
all children of school age that are phys
ically capable of doing so. As it is now,
there are thousands of boys, even in Ne
braska, saying nothing about the great
centers of dense population, who are
growing up without the advantages
which come to those who attend the
public schools and who are faithfully
working to prepare themselves for the
duties of life. Many of these thousands
seem to be deprived of . school, privi
leges through no fault of their own, but
doubtless there are very many of them
for whom, with an extra effort on the
part of parents, guardians or the publio
authorities, a way might be made to
assure their attendance on the free, pub
lio schools. It is a difficult problem.
The state superintendent of New York
proposes a state truant school, "a school
which will inspire rather than coerce:
but coerce just the same." In any sort
of bettering the weak places- must be
strengthened, aad, as wa said, the public
free school will not accomplish its de
sign until provaioa has been made for

The last grand leap year ball of the
year and for several years to come took
place last Tuesday night at- the Maen-
nerchor halt The hall had been beauti
fully decorated with mistletoe and holly,
each' corner of the half being furnished
with divans and rugs. The stage was
decorated with piano lamps and the
whole, effect gave one the idea that all
was purely done by the fair sex, every
thing being so dainty and tasteful.
Every lady escorted her gentleman
friend there in a carriage, was met at the
door by two colored ''boy waiters (we
might insert here that these two boys
were white if they had washed their
faces.) The gentlemen had a neat dress
ing room fitted up with mirrors and all
necessary articles to make a toilet. One
rule of .the evening carried out was that
no gentleman, should cross the floor
unattended by a lady, and when the
dear boys" wanted a drink of water,
even, tnc ladies attended them in the
most gallant manner. The ladies wore
full evening dress and all were of light
colors.. The Italian orchestra of Omaha
furnished beautiful music for the danc
ers, about forty in number. No doubt
the' gentlemen wish leap year came
oftener, for they were certainly enter
tained in royal style.
