with the band in their new uniform, was
by no means a surprise to the audience,
because they knew about what to ex
pect, but it was surely a delight.
It goes with the saying that harmony,
either in the study of it or practice of it,
does not differ in general principles
from any other branch of human en
deavor. The rudiments are first to be
attained (after oae discovers that he
really has an appreciation of effects),
after which persistency in study, and
insistency in practice, will bring, in ex
actly corresponding degrees, the due
effects. By higher, wider and deeper
study, the way of practice is opened to
clear view, the truths of the science are
assimilated, becoming a very part of the
individual student, and with persistency
in practice, that which has all along been
aimed at, is shown forth.
See and do is about the briefest for
mula of the whole matter. Seeing
shows the way, but practice, like motion
developing heat, increases enthusiasm,
which is again" nourished, sustained and
enlivened by study, so that it may reach
out towards perfection, which of course
is the far-away limit of attainment, the
guiding star to every master who was
first an appreciator, second a lover (or
amateur) third a professional, with the
technique at command; fourth, the exact,
yet free and complete interpreter,
through musical tones, of the. senti
ments of the author.
We can note considerable advance, in
the general quality, the average so to
speak, of the compositions selected,
though we could always wish for more
of the national hymns, and the stately
movements of the acknowledged mas
ters. In all matters pertaining to ex
pression, the united attack, the rests, et
cetera, the individual members of the
band undoubtedly have improved; also
in the variation in volume of tone which
is one of the chief charms in music, so
delightful in solo or melody, it seems to
increase by geometrical progression in

A. R. Leedom suffered the loss and
incident worry of having his Index office
burned at Petersburg Thursday night of
last week. The fire originated in the
back room, but how or what started it
is a mystery to him. He was working
in the front room till late, and had
scarcely set foot in his home two blocks
away when the cry of "fire" reached his
ears. All was right so far as he knew
when he left the office. The fire must
have had considerable start, but it is
strange he did not smell it. He saved
his books and papers, but the rest of the
plant was consumed. We are pleased
to know that he had but a few weeks
before placed $500 insurance on the
plant. Albion Argus. A. R. Leedom is
sou of Rev. Leedom, minister of the

Polk county people were railroad
crazy last week. Immediately after the
bond proposition earned in Platte and
Pleasant Home precincts, the rumor was
set afloat that the B. x M. had pur
chased the G. L running into Stroms
burg and would build to Bellwood or
Columbus. A gang of surveyors was at
work north from Stromsburg and ran
two lines, one due north from the above
point and one swinging east to strike
Osceola. Madam Rumor had it that the
surveyors were in the employ of the B.
x M and that a new railroad was a sure
thing. The surveyors quit the job after
a couple of days work and left. The
Record has it from pretty good au
thority that it was not the RiM. gang
and that this road has not purchased the
G. L so that we very much fear that it is
all talk. Osceola Record.

It often happens, in county and
municipal matters, that what one com
munity does will operate as a guide to
follow, or a fearful example to ahunn
by others like situated. In other words,
general principles are illustrated by par
ticular incidents, which become very
valuable. Such a matter is contained in
the following from the Fremont Tribune
of a recent date:
uIn looking over the finance com
mittee's report a discussion arose. The
office of the county judge yields 31.500
per year from the fees of the office and
allows $500 more for clerk hire in case
the condition of the funds warrant it.
It is seen that in the past year Judge
Wintersteen retained his salary and
clerk hire but did not actually payout
for clerk the entire amount. The judge
was perfectly willing to explain the po
sition he took in the matter. He said
that in the first year of his office the fee
did not amount to enough to pay his
regular salary and inasmuch as the
money which came in during the second
year was partially from cases started
during the first, he felt entitled to hold
out enoagh to make him even on the
two years. Some of the board mem
bers thought that every year should be
considered by itself and what was short
in one year could not be made good in
another. Some discussion followed and
the matter was left until next meeting.
This question has come up in many
counties and is looked upon as a rather
hard nut to crack. The amount in
question just now is $131. The judge
says he wants to see this matter settled
in district court, He does not care to
abide by the board's decision and he
feels that this long standing question
ahonld be disposed of now. He says
that there are fees in his hands coming
over from Plambeck'a term of office and
under the present conditions he cannot
tell where they belong.'

Tfcoigats of Education.
The following, which is from the
Atchison, (Kansas) Globe, contains large
quantities of truth, with very little alloy,
and commends itself to all who have
studied the subject below the surface:
tThe students of ilr. Rockefeller's
Chicago university, and the students of
all universities and colleges throughout
the country, owe a debt of gratitude to
President Harper for his courage and
frankness in telling them the truth
about the prospects of those intellectual
careers for which a college education
was originally designed. The 'learned
professions are now four in number, the
traditional triad of 'law, physic and di
vinity' being supplemented by pedagogy,
and all four of these professions, l)r.
Harper says, are now overcrowded to the
starvation point. This is the seamy side
of our brilliant college prosperity, and it
is painfully close to the truth. The en
tire system of education is based on the
requirements of those pupils who are to
become teachers, lawyers, doctors or
preachers. More than half the course is
useless except to teachers, and of no
account to teachers except to impart it
to others. Ninety-five out of every hun
dred pupils in the schools do not be
come either teachers, lawyers, doctors or
preachers. Why not teach them as
much that is useful as is possible dur
ing the brief time they are ia school?
