Having made a reference to the
school building muddle at Fremont, it is
in place to give the following paragraph
from the last Tribune: "The school
board should reject all bids for erecting
a high school building and start again.
The plans and specifications are too in
definite for building a granary. They
should be discarded and a competent
architect hired to get up a new set upon
which bids may be intelligently made.
There is no use to invite trouble and
perhaps scandal from the start.'
It has been suggested to the Jora
SAX. editor that he write a book entitled
"Household Hints." If we should un
dertake such a task, among the first
items would go down the different ways
of starting a fire, properly, with some
comments on the many improper meth
ods, and among these, the use of either
benzine or kerosene would have an im
portant place. Along with this would
go a dissertation on gases in general, and
the necessity of knowing the explosive
power of different substances in common

After music and prayer, Ber. Trezona,
of the M. E. chareh, North .Bend, aa
intimate friend of the family, preached
from the text IT Timothy,23: "Endure
hardness as a good soldier."
He spoke of the high repute in which
the soldier of ancient times was held,
and of the great delight with which the
rank and file of the army as well as the
general went into the strife. He also
spoke of some of the qualities necessary
to the makeup of the "good soldier,
such as obedience, courage, a worthy
object for which to contend, and a wil
lingness to endure the toils and hard
ship incident to the soldier's life. Hav
ing done this he called attention to the
fact that "our soldier boy," lieutenant
Siason possessed these qualities and as
a young soldier had few, if any superior
in his regiment. In conclusion he called
attention to the need of soldiers in the
moral realm, soldiers who will show their
coarage by their obedience to the Mas

The Norfolk folks, it seems from the
following paragraph in the last week's
Journal, are not so well pleased as they
might be with the deal they made:
"There is considerable complaint on the
part of mechanics who worked on the
opera house building that they cannot
get their pay. One or more mechanic's
liens have been filed, and it is said that
others will follow. It certainly seems
that with the amount Mr. Warrant suc
ceeded in working out of the people of
Norfolk, he should pay the men who
furnished labor and materials for the
new 'Norfolk's pride' unless he wants
the people of this city to pay all the
bills on the building for the privilege of
having him own it."
The entire course of study from the
kindergarten to the university should be
the best attainable at every stage. It is
just as important that the maximum of
training be secured for the grades and
high schools as for the university. The
course of study throughout should be so
well balanced as to bring into action
every faculty of the pupiL The best
results cannot be attained when one
division of public instruction forces its
requirements upon all others. The
course of study for high schools should
not be wholly determined by those who
are interested only in college work.
Nothing is truer than the foregoing
taken from the Layman's Corner of the
Lincoln Journal, and it is a subject that
forces itself upon the school authorities
of this state.
The most important item of railroad
news announced for several months is
that on May 1 the Burlington and North
ern. Pacific railroads will establish
through train service in both directions
between Portland and St. Louis by way
of Billings, Mont. To maintain this
through service, ten trains will be re
quired, and orders for the new equip
ment have already been placed. The
new trains will carry sleeping, dining,
tourist and smoking cars, as well as first
and second class coaches. The Burling
ton Route ia becoming a big factor in the
passenger situation in the Northwest,
and the arrangement now being perfect
ed will undoubtedly have a tendency to
make the BQlings gateway even more
popular than it has been in the past.
It is with regret we receive the in
formation that this will be the final
season of Lewis Morrison's magnificent
and long to be remembered production
of "Faust," though from the extensive
and expensive mountings which have
been given the play this year one would
imagine it was just entering the field to
remain for many seasons to come. Every
thing is entirely new, and recent inven
tions in the way of mechanical and elec
trical stage craft have been taken ad
vantage of, resulting in a thoroughly
surprising and decidedly gratifying- pre
sentatioB. of a play which so long has
been among- the most successful theatri
cal enterprises. As stated, Lews Mor
rison's "Faust" will positively not toar
after the conclusion of this season, but
it will continue to live for years to coeie
xa the memories of the thoaaaads who
have sees it. Opera hoase, Taesday,

The sale of the Hendryx farm near
Monroe, 400 acres at $50 per acre, to one
of the largest seed growing companies of
this state was closed Tuesday last, H. E.
Babcock negotiating the sale.
The sale means much to Columbus, and
to the farmers of this community. It is
the highest price ever paid for a large
tract of land in the county. It demon
strates the fact that these rich soils, when
irrigated, are being appreciated by non
residents. It means the location of ware-
rooms and general offices in Columbus,
and the industry will employ, in busy
seasons, over 100 people, and will dis
tribute approximately $50,000.00 per
annum throughout the city. It means
the growing of 3,000 to 5,000 acres of seed
crops in this vicinity which will require
a large force of men. Diversified farming-,
higher-priced land, rests rising to as
high as $8 per acre, large profits from
intense cultivation, will naturally and
inevitably follow. It ia a step towards
the building up of the home market.
The Nebraska Central Irrigation Co.,
builders of the Great Eastern canal and
of whom Mr. Babcock is the general
manager, expended several thousand
dollars this season putting in a large
acreage to seed crops for the purpose of
demonstrating to seed-growers the super
iority of seeds grown where moisture can
be furnished just as needed, and the
demonstration was complete. The sale
of this land, and the location of the new
industry here result. It is the first dis
tinctive victory for irrigation in Platte
Mr. Frank T. Emerson, manager for
the Western Seed and Irrigation Co.,

The Juniors and Seniors delivered
their program last Friday, a Lincoln

"Characterization of Lincoln" was well
prepared and read by Louise Tomlis.
Essay by Mattie Poet was good. Esther
Johnson, in a very able way, compared
the lives of Lincoln and Washington.
"Humorous Anecdotes of Lincoln" by
George Moras, produced a great deal of
TTiii-th RfladingTr, "Death of Lincoln,"
and "Vengeance of the American Flag,"
by Delia Newman, were good. Marjorie
Williams played a piano solo in her
usual rflnritr manner. The paper ded
icated to Lincoln by Peter Duffy
well read by Florence Kramer and
followed by great applause. After the
