Favors Certification Plan.
In his annual report to Governor
Slieldcn State Superintendent JIc
Brien declared in favor of the certi
fication law .commending the act to
strengthen the weaker school districts
of the state and boosted the junior nor
reals. Concerning the latter he said:
'During the past five years the en
rollment in the junior normal schools
reached nearlj-,000 teachers. Never
did the state do so much good with
ko little money in the professional
training of its teachers. We sha.l
have over l.r00 teachers enrolled in
these eight junior normal schools dur
ing the session of 1908. This will
equal the combined enrollment at the
two state normal schools during their
summer sessions and we have reason
to bo proud of the enrollment at our
two great slate normal schools. Not
withstanding this phenomenal attend
ance at the junior normal schools, the
attendance at all private and state nor
mal schools has increased from year
to year. During each of the past two
years over 6,000 teachers have attend
ed summer school. The reason for this
unprecedented attendance is the de
mand of the public for better qualified
teachers. These teachers have met
with a substantial reward on the part
f the public in an aggregate increase
in teachers wages of over $70,000 dur
ing the past two years.
"Many county superintendents tes
tify to the better worlc accomplished
in their schools as a result of the pro
fessional training given their teach
ers in the junior normal schools. The
hearty support givf-n thejje schools by
county superintendents, the liberal
patronage and the generous donations
from each place where a junior normal
school has been located, the excellent
services rendered the state bjr the
principals and instructors and the he
roic efforts put forth by the teamers
themselves make a record full of
credit and honor. Let me assure you
of the appreciation of the teachers and
the people in the territory of the junior
normal schools of your friendly atti
tude toward the work of these schools."
State Superintendent's Accounts.
State Superintendent J. L. McBrien
lias filed his semi-annual report with
the governor. It shows that from June
1 to December 1 he received $6,128.96
and at the close or that period had on
hand $56.52. During that time he re
ceived 11.439 registrations for county
certificates at 50 cents each, for which
he received $5.71D.50. For state exam
ining committee and clerical assistance
he reports that he paid out $5,323.72.

Insurance Assets.
Deputy Insurance Auditor John I
Pierce is not in favor of valuing in
surance assreis at the maiket value
they bore on the 'Mst of last December
as requested by a mooting of state in
surance commissioners. The Ne
braska law says annual reports of in
surance companies shall contain a true
report of the condition of the com
panies, together wiih the market value
of securities on the Cist of December
The annual reports are now due and
the values of last year will not be ac
cepted by this department because un
der the law he cannot accept such
values. If the securities of insurance
companies show an impairment this
year, he cannot help it. On the other
hand It is known that the values of larft
December were inflated values.
Pleasantdale Wants Depot.
A delegation of citizens of Pleasant
dale, a small village just over the line
in Seward county, was before the stato
railway commission seeking to get
t-ome kind of an order which would
compel the Dmlingtcn railroad to fur
nish a depot which the patrons of the
road could reach. Tiie depot formerly
was located in the town, but since the
Jlilford cut-off was completed the de
Kt has been transferred to a distance
of about one mile and a quarter from
the town. It is located, the delegation
said, in an inaccessible place, and it is
imossible to get to it with a wagon.
One member of the delegation said
he had been unable to get to a car
ot lumber which had been on the track
for several uayj. The commission sent
for the local agent of the road to talk
the matter over with him.
Cobbey Gets Busy.
A. E. Cobbey. the author of Cobbey's
Statutes, has evidently started a cam
paign among the members of the late
legislature to get them to influence
Secretary of State Junkin to reconsid
er his decision not to buy 400 copies
of Cobbey's Statutes for $3,600. Let
ters from the members of the legisla
ture hate begun to reach the secr
tary.most of them telling him that it
was the intention of the legislature to
make an appropriation for Cobbey's
Statutes, no matter what the bill
State Fair Board Meets.
Secretary Mellor of the state board
of agriculture explained to the board
of managers the improvements made
at the fair grounds since the fair. Ten
acres of lowland have been reclaimed
by the filling in of earth taken from
a small tract owned by the society
across the Rock Island tracks adjoin
iag Salt creek. Since the fair $2,50o
to f3,000 worth of work has been done
in the way of filling, and in all about
$5,000 has been expended. On the
newly made ground the new stock pa
vilion will some fay be built.
Guard Property Missing.
The theft of property belonging to
the Nebraska national guard must
stop. The efforts of Adjutant Gen
eral Charles F. Schwarz are to be
turned tn mat direction during nis ad
ministration. How to prevent the loss
of such property has long been one of
the vexing problems of. the adminis
trative officers of the guard. The sight
of a fine United States blanket in the
front yard of a residence or the use of
such a piece of cloth in the home of
a citizen is said not to be uncommon.
Campaign hats and blue shirts disap
pear with great regularity from the
care of captains and companies. Prop
erty given by the government to the
Nebraska national-guard and issued to
companies is under the care and con
trol of captains. It it disappears a
board of survey may inquire into the
loss and its report is sent to the war
department where it is usually ap
proved. This relieves the captains.
Occasionally a captain digs up money
to pay for missing property. As all
captains are supposed to be under
bond, they may be held liable for any
loss that cannot be satisfactorily ex
plained. "This department will do all It can
to help captains who deserve to be re
lieved of responsibility," said Adjutant
General Schwarz, "but it is the policy
o fthe department to try with all its
power to hold the careless and negli
gent officers responsible. Officers who
do the square thing and who are try
ing to do right wi be helped; those
who do not will be held to a strict ac
conutability." A board of survey is now at work.
It comprises Colonel Storch, Major J.
M. Birkner and Captain Workizer. 17.
S. A. While the latter cannot obtain
permission from the war department
to devote his time to such work, he
will be able to assist the board. Some
of the property now missing has been
missing for several years and no ad
justment of the less has been made.
The board wil lendeavor to clean up
some of the old cases but will devote
most of its time to recent losses with
a view to preventing losses in the fu
ture. It is likely -that if companies
are mustered out of the guard the first
to go will be those that have the most
property unaccounted for.
Short Weight Butter.
Dairy Inspector Harnley reports tin
branded butter packages by P. H.
Gumpton & Co.. of Oxford. This but
ter was put tin by A. C. Rankin of Ox
ford. The facts have been certified
to County Attorney A. M. Keys, Beav
er City.
Mr. Harnley also reports violations
of the law as to the branding of pack
age butter by L. T. Bonner & Co., of
Imperial. This case has been reported
for prosecution to W. D. Thompson,
county attorney, Imperial.
The deputy food commissioner has
called attention of the county attorneys
to the fact that in most of the cases
reported of unbranded butter the but
ter is short in weight, indicating that
the butter is put up in packages by
the producer for the purpose of prac
ticing the short weight trick upon the
consumer. At the present prices of
butter in the western part of the state
the shortage of 2 ounces to the package
cheats the consumer to the amount
of about 3 cents to the package. This
profit in most cases so far investigat
ed really goes to the grocer. The
farmer who puts up short weight but
ler is able to sell it to the grocery
keeper on account of the convenience
that there is in handling the package
butter. Generally the grocer weighs
the farmer's butter in bulk, paying
for the butter weight and then retails
il to his customers by the package,
selling the 13 ounce package at the
pound price.
Poorly Kept State House.
The general condition of the interior
of the state house is such that callers
often remark that if a private cor
poration kept a building in such a
condition it would be charged with
gross negligence. The third floor,
where there are several offices and
storerooms of the state library, is in
the worst condition.
Copy of Two-Cent Fare Law Wanted.
Horace E. Flack of the department
of legislative reference of Baltimore,
has written Secretary of State Junkin
asking for a copy of the 2-cent fare
law, as well as information concerning
its operation in Nebraska. Mr. Flack
asked also if the railroads are contest
ing the law. The legislature of Mary
land is considering passing such an

sworn in as regent to serve until Jan

only candidate for the short vacancy.
Examinations for State Certificates.
State examination for professional
state certificates will be held in every
county seat in the state. December 20
and 21, 1907, and will be conducted by
the county superintendents in connec
tion with the regular monthly exam
ination for county certificates.
Want Food Law Enforced.
Secretary Johnson received a let
ter from the secretary of the grocers'
and butchers' association of Omaha in
closing a set of resolutions asking for
the rigid enforcement of the pure food
law, against the manufacturers rather
than against the retailers. The food
commissioner holds that both the re
tailer and the manufacturer, if he re
sides in Nebraska, are guilty for im
pure food or improperly branded pack
ages. The resolutions were passed at
a meeting of the grocers and butchers
December 4.
Hearing for a Convict.
Mrs. George Van Haller asked the I
u"tuvi aci a. uaic lur a Hearing
for her husband, who is in the peni
tentiary serving out a twelve-year sen
tence for murder in the second degree.
The governor agreed to grant a pub
lic hearing on January 11. Von Haller
was accused of killing a station agent
in Douglas county. Mrs. Von Haller
filed an affidavit with the governor la
which a reputable citizen was quoted
as hearing another party say that he
saw a man named Huberman fire the
fatal shot.

The liberty -of American wbnien has
become so universally accepted a fact
that it has passed into a byword of
comparison to the older nations. j
The puritan idea has become at
last transmuted, through the light and
mxury oi weann and me diffused In-
fluence of widely scattered location,
into a basis of fine responsibility and
a finer courage. From Virginia and
the more southern states we have a
fluent charm, a soft womanliness and
grace both lovable and admirable, but
regrettably lessening with the disap
pearance of the characteristic life of
the south.
It is too early to attempt an analysis
of the western idea of American wom
anhood, for the west, from Cleveland
and Chicago outward, is but a system
of eastern colonies with only one gen
eral and determining- condition, and
that is liberty, under which individual
traits, traditions and tendencies find
their full opportunity of development.
These various ideas, historical as
I well as local, in their origin have pro
duced the types of women thus largely
indicated in our country. Profoundly
felt and almost universally operative,
beneath these varying influences, re
mains the old-world orientalism that
women should be first charming, again
charming and always charming. Char
acter, logic, reason and other stern
requirements of life are for the most
part left to develop in some mysteri
ous way. untended.
The desirability of a thorough col
legiate education is as a rule not ac
cepted voluntarily by the solvent por
tion of our national community. The
female universities are demanded by
the future breadwinners among wom
en and supported by them. This is an
almost universal fact and it has a
double significance. It is at once a
promise and a reproach. In plain
words, the American girl is superfi
cially educated except when she is
compelled to earn her own living.
There is a shallowness of foresight so
universal, a deficiency of logic so se
rious and so ominous in this certainly
universal inclination on the part of
American parents that one may well
stop and inquire its reason.
In a certain celebrated essay by
Schopenhauer. an essay -as acrimoni
ous as it is profound, he remarks upon
the universal jealousy between all
women as women. Jealousy among
men, he insists, is largely professional,
when it is not intensely personal from
particular emotional impulse. The
. male will light for his chosen mate as
long as the race continues; but watch
a pietty woman, sajs this philosopher,
as s-he walks the street and see the
glances cast upon her by the women
she crosses in her path. They are the
glances of the Guelph and the Ghibel
iine. The jealousy is as universal as
he sex, likewise professional, in the
sense that women's only profession is
to please the men, their masters. He
goes further and with a savage bitter
ness declares that the libery of women
is a monstrous idea, German-Christian
in its origin, which- is the curse of
Europe. He advises the restoration of
the feminine seclusion of the middle
ages and lauds the institution of the
harem, which he insists would elimi
nate vice and all the dangers which
beset monogamous .civilizations. This
is indeed a vivid expression of the
idea of woman and her proper func
tion and limitation. But his idea is
only too prevalent at the present
time, even in America, the last outpost
of European civilization. The linger
ing proof of this deep-lying prejudice
is shown in its application to the edu
cation of American women. The con-1
elusion derived from the prejudice is
inevitable it is dangerous to be clev
er. Such a reputation may be a for
midable handicap in the race for hap
piness, if a woman's happiness is in
the hands of man. It is idle to deny
that this is so. And here we have the
reason why the daughters of the rich
are guarded from any such peril, why
beauty and charm, gentleness, good
ness and submissiveness are the qual
ities which clothe a young man's fancy
and dictate the choice of a wife.
The question now is pertinent. Does
a cultivated mind, with its infinitely
various resources, detract from
charm? Does a trained logic, with its
Innumerable applications to the prob
lems of life destroy it? It is aston
ishing that the reasoning masculine
mind for these centuries should have
lersisted in the conclusion that they
do. The slightest hint of rivalry to
the male intelligence is destructive to
a budding predilection and a glimpse
of blue above a slipper more perilous
than a whisper of a bifurcation.
All this is true with a solemnity

TepV and ignorant, deceit and subter
fuge. . Jt is only ostentatious clever
ness, not cleverness at all. in fact,
which isa deterrent to the exercise of
any charm or taleht. There is never
an hour in the life of a woman when
the best education her powers- will
permit of is notfan advantage. In the
heyday of 'youth control of emotions
and clearness of insight have directed
many a ship pennanted with beauty
and "-vitality which woula have been
driven on the rocks. 'And what shall
be said of the years which follow,
crowded with opportunities nay, ne
cessities for a reasonable dealing
with the .questions of, life? No woman
can be her husband's friend and helpP
er without logic Jo which he may ap
peal and an intelligence which com
pletes and supplements his own. And
this education of character, as of mind,
is not taught in a school which gradu
ates -girls in white muslin "at 17 and
sends them out without either mental
resource" or control.
Geometry- teaches -the logic of life
and over blackboard problems Rosy
Cheek learns to be the mother, wife
and citizen, which every advanced
civilization demands. This is the ed
jucation which is developed by a seri-
ous. adenuate curriculum ami hv
none other. The special training is
another matter, equally important, as
it prepares a woman to meet the re
sistless law which links happy useful
ness with occupation. The choice of
study should of course he adapted to
the individual learning of the stu
dent, and if indeed there is a mental
constitution differing from that of
man. this fact should be recognized in
fitting her for her probable duties and
her possible use of talent or ability.
The increasing number of eclectic
courses of study gives an added free
dom and breadth of opportunity most
desirable and necessary and if right
fully understood should entirely re
move the popular prejudice that a col
legiate education, per se. fills a wo
man's mind with useless knowledge.
A college education should mean the
best education possible, and its vari
ety should only be equaled by its
thoroughness. The ordinary finishing
school for girls cannot train the mind
adequately because of the briefness of
its curriculum and its lack of system.
Parent and teacher are alike respon
sible for this, neither demanding, as
a rule, anything approaching a rigor
ous standard of education.
It is sometimes fairly astonishing
to note with what shallow and care
less consideration the whole subject
of a girl's education is dismissed. One
wonders what result can be expect
ed from such lax attention to a su
premely important matter. Can a few
weeks of "science," a skimming of
philosophy, dig the channels of train
ed and habitual thought? Can a germ
of talent, literary, mathematical or
plastic, be taught to grow by a brief
planting and a briefer tending? Can
an occasional "composition," even a
certain .fluency in the attractive and
"harmless" literature of the modern
languages, give correct and elegant
forms of expression or teach the his
tory of the words we use? The un
differentiated adjective of sweet 16
may pass amid its rippling laughter
and its maiden grace, but how about
the woman whose vocabulary is still
confined to exclamation points punc
tuating the eternal reiteration of
"awful," "wonderful,"- "fascinating,"
and the like?
A young girl may, indeed, run a
fairer chance of getting a husband if
her charm is not endangered by an
awkward reputation tf cleverness, but
the married woman needs every bit
of intelligence she possesses.
The women of America are enfran
chised by the customs of the country,
if not by the prejudices of the so
calied upper and better classes. Lib
erty and tesponsibilty are ours and
sooner or later we shall be called
upon to fit ourselves for them. The
working women know this and are
rising to the demands of both necessity
and opportunity. But, first and fore
most, if our daughters are to be given
the dangerous draught of knowledge,
they must learn to subordinate it to
charm. There is no impossibility
about this only the most vague and
illogical prejudice against it. Every
woman should be taught, first and
foremost, that in -all social relations
knowledge must be subordinate to
sympathy, merged into the charm
which listens first and then expresses.
AH greatness is simple and. above
all, unostentatious, as all strength,
if balanced and serene, is sweet. True
education teaches this, as it develops
harmony with law, which is the
"word" of the world, both spiritual
and material.
The preponderance of women who
intend to make a college education a
preparation for a wage-earning career
is a deterrent to those who consider
the natural association and friend
ships of youth to be an all-important
consideration. This deterrent must
inevitably disappear with the im
provement of the already established
schools, many of which already ap
proach the college standard, and with
the development of the universities
for women existent in America. In
any case, whether this condition dis
appears in a short or a longer time, it
must always be safer and better in
this country of fluctuating social con
ditions to build the foundations of
character and of mental cultivation
firmly and well. Sweetness and
grace, if individual, will not be de
stroyed by the education which devel
ops character.

When yon smoke a cigar you want

The trouble with most of uss is to
find a cigar with rich, satisfying aroma
