A grand excursion party ha9 been
arranged 'by Samuel Echola, which will
leave AtlanU, Georgia, June 19th. The
tioketa will take the excursionists from
Atlanta, Ga., to Urand Inland. Neb, by
way of Omaha and Oolnmbus, giving the
excursionists an opportunity of stopping
off at Oolumbus and making a visit to
the Pawnee Indian Reservation.
The Fire and Hook and Lscder Com
panies, dressed in full uniform, headed
by the Columbus Cornet Baud, were out
last Monday on a grand parade. The
companies made a tine appearance, aad
will compare favorably with any other
companies in the state. The ball given
tiy theca. in the 'evening was largely-
attended and passed off very pleasantly.
Eighteen years ago lsst Friday 'the
first settlement wss msde in Columbus,
Nebraska. It has been the custom for
the past few years of the old settlers to
meet at the house of some of the number
and celebrate the anniversary. On Fri
day last a few of the old settlers met at
the house of J. Bickley and had a good
social time. These old settlers are drop
ping away, and new men are taking their
place. Soon they will all be gone. We
hope that they may live long to enjoy
these happy reunions.
The valley of Shell Creek has improv
ed wonderfully in the last year. From
J. P. Becker's mill two miles west, in the
lsst year the following persons have
built residences: J. Held. Beinke, Lus
chea; and Mr. Aureus, W. Weather and
Mr. Erb hsve completed residences of
wood which look tasty and neat. J. P.
Becker hss also made many improve
ments, consisting of a purifier, manufac
tured at Quincy, III., and a coaveyor
which enables them to have control of
the bolting apparatus. They now make
the very beat of flour.

We forgot to mention lsst week that
Oscar JenBon hss employed a young
man to help him plow the crops. He
came a little before the corn waa ready
to cultivate, but then he will have to
grow some before he can cuitivate much
Thursdsy afternoon we hsd the heav
est rain so far this year. Considerable
corn washed out and some will b plant
ed over. There was no hsiP to do any
damage to amount to any thing in Walk

was considerable damage done by hail
inJolietand Woodville townships, and
.further east in the county.
Wall Paper
Now that spring is on
'the way, would it not be
a good idea to think
about repapering the
rooms? Our line of .wall
paper has never been
surpassed, either in qual
ity, pattern or price,
and all who have had
work done by us have
been well satisfied.

Patron's Day at
Last Friday afternoon and evenl;
"Patron's Day" lwas Observed at
High school bnUdisg. -The High school
building was opened to the publie, ex
hibit beiag displayed in theGymnasiam
aad the various ro-ww of the building,
the object of the display haiag to exhi
bit the regular line of sehoolSrork ia da-'
partmeota where saeh display is possible,
namely writing, drawing, map-work, in
dustrial work, manual training aad la
boratory work.
In the iadastrial work ia the grades
ao nttempt is made to do some of all the
innumerable kinds of industrial work
possible, but rather to find something
suitable for boys and girls alike, which
will lead up to the manual training in
the upper grades. The basis of the work
is drawing and weaving, which require
deftness of hand and manipulstive skill
and yet give a okanee for development
along the art aide. The boya and girls
work, together until the Eighth grade,
their work including drawing, weaviag,
basket makiag, clay modelling and
woodcarving. In the Eighth grade they
separate, the girls continuing their draw
ing and taking sewing aa well, while the
boys take eimple exercises, preparatory
to the regular Manual Traiaingin the
High school. The Domestio Science
coarse, soon to be pat into the High
school course will be designed to offset
the bench, forge and latbe work offered
to tfae'buya in the Ninth and Tenth
Tbe'Msaual Training work is not de
signed as a loafing coarse for those who
are worthless and no aocoaatin other
lines of work. To be euro there is the
occasional student whose talents lie
along industrial lines and wu while a
failure in academie work, is quite sno-
cesful along mechanical lines, yet on the
whole experience haa shown that the boy
who is lszy and no account in bis re
gular Bohool work, is just as worthless
in the manual training work. Manual
training ia not a loop-hole for the 'lazy
fellow. Here, as well aa elsewhere, effort
is essential in order that results 'msy
The industrial work has been quite
carefully graded. In the primary gradea
it coasists largely of simple drawings
both in water colois snd charcoal. These
include simple landscapes, simple poses,
object drawing as d drawiagfroa aatare.
Alongindastrial line, there is the paper
weaving and the working out of simple
originisl designs in colored paper.
In I
the Third and Fourth grades this work
is continued along, more advanced lines,
tilo strands being - introduced into the
weaviag. In the Fifth grsde the new
element in the drawing is the study per
spective and work, from type forms, while
in the industrial work map and basket
weaving are added. Clay modelling is
the distinctive feature of the Sixth grade
work, and wood carving of the Seventh.
In the Eighth grade, the girls take sew
ing in addition to their drawing, em
phasis being Isid on hand work rather
than machine work. The Eighth grade
boya have six regular exercises ia Man
ual training, fourteen special pieoes be
ing made by each boy.
In the High school the girls continue
their drawing, there being no nettled
policy, the work being adopted to "the
individual needs and talents of the stud
ents in the class.
Tbe(manual training for the boya f
the Nineth grsde consists of bench work,
inoluding exercises in planing, sawing,
chiseling, and furniture constructions,
special attention being given to hose
tailoring. In the Tenth grade the first
half of the year is devoted to wood turn
ing, snd the second half to forge-work,
both in iron and steel.
The industrial display wss one of
which any school might well be proud
A collection of the best work exhibited
is now being made, to be eeat to the
State Fair in the fall.
Another interesting feature of the ex
hihit were the laboratories in science snd
biology. In chemistry the students
lookers with their usual obemicals and
reagents and the stadente' note books in
each, were exhibited, showing the regulsr
work. In physics, likewise, the note
books of students were in evidence, with
apparatus for performing the seventy ex
periments required in the present phy
sks coarse. In tbje biology laboratory.
students were ia cnarge or the mtcro-
soopes. keeping fresh mount of micro
seopio plsnt life for the inspection of
visitors. The laboratories elicited con
siderable favorable comment from the
visitors, spseisl interest being shown in
the experimental work ia the physics
laboratory and in the preserved speci
mens in zoology, which had been'arrang
ed for tba convenience of visitors along
n table in the biology laboratory.
