We don't know whether ground hog day ia applicable to Nebraska or not, unless we ohall admit the badger at all events neither could hare seen their shadows at sunrise and according to the rule we have an early and pleasant spring. The snow ot last Tuesday has not yet disappeared, although we bad a good many hours of warm sunshine since then. All the Nebraska sleds and sleigh have been put into requisition, and the youngsters have been having some "good times."

Citizens of Boone county, who seem to know whereof they affirm, say that the proposed road and bridge bonds will not carry. Boone county's prospect for a railroad this season, in time to move the crops next fall, seems to be good, and, knowing this, ii is doubtful if her voters would feel inclined to donate largely to any other project, at present.

KAVANAU6H J President Friscbbolz of the Commer cial Club, who was the official representa tive of this city at the Land ahow in Omaha last week, says that portion ot the show which impressed the most was the Minnesota road exhibit, which was given under the direction of the road commission ot that state. The exhibit demonstrated the manner of construct ing their dirt and gumbo roads and also improved methods of bridge building. As the Minnesota method of construct ing roads had attracted considerable at tention over the country, Mr. Frisohholz who is much interested in this work, in quired as to the method used in construc ting them. In speaking of the material used the expert in charge stated that on account of their not having gravel to use it makes the .construction more difficult and the gumbo roads had to be con structed so they would shed the water in rainy weather, and deep ditobee were required on each side of the roadway Their roads must be dragged after each heavy rain, otherwise they become stioky and full of holes. When Mr. Frisohholz told the expert what material could easily be had in this section, and speci ally on the proposed road between the two rivers, the Minnesota man told him that if they had a good supply of sand and gravel, the same as here, they oould build the beet dirt roads in the world. A special meeting of the board of education was held last Thursday even ing to consider the plans submitted for the proposed additional third story of the High school building. The building committee, which had the matter in charge, presented their report, which was in favor of the plans submitted by architect Wurdeman, and also recom mended that he be instructed to prepare more detailed plana and specifications, and have them ready to present to the board about March 15. This report waa adopted by the board after they had carefully examined all the plans. The proposed additional story to the High school building, which will provide sev en additional rooms, will cost not to ex ceed $14,000, and this amount includes some changes that will have to be made to strengthen the building. Besides taking action regarding the building, the board passed a resolution requiring all high school pupils to take physical training, unless there is some good rea son why the pupil should be excused. F. W. Morrissey arrived in Lincoln yesterday from Columbus, Neb., where the funeral of his brother, Harry J. ) Morrissey was held Friday. Mr. Mor rissey's father has lived in Lincoln for a number of years. He is at present in a hospital where recently he underwent an operation. "F. W. Morrissey visited his father at the hospital yesterday. He will remain in Lincoln for sometime un til his father is better. At the time of the death of Harry J. Morrissey, the family was unable to locate their father at once, as it happened that Mr. Morris sey had gone to a hospital in Lincoln without notifying the landlord of the rooming house in which he had been staying. He had gone to the office of a physician who had him taken to the hospital at once. When the family found that their father was no longer at his former address in Lincoln they wired the chief of police, of Lincoln asking as sistance in locating him. It was soon found that he was at the hospital. Lin coln Journal.

A few days since a man asked 'what is Christianity?-' I quickly ans wered him "an acquaintance with God through living the Christ life." For many years men have tried to make themselves christians by believing what others have believed and by squar ing their life with accepted church usage. No man should be too haaty in throwing over tha findings ot great meu in religion more than in other fields of great activi ty, yet to be a slave to other men's' find ings, no matter how learned thf y may be, has a tendency to rob one of experi mental religion and retard development. Some time since I went into a home ot a grandmother to talk with her about the church. For more than thirty minu tes she talked to me about JeauB. Her eyes sparkled and grew moist and her face beamed. As I went away I said to myself here is a woman with limited education, not widely read with a chris tian joy I linve not experienced. I have gone into the homes of tbc poor, where bread and clothes and coal are something of a problem and have found a working knowledge of God surprising. I would not ignore an intellectual anchorage in religion any more than in science but I would make a personal acquaintance with God the ground of pergonal salava tion. The church has bnt one bueiiieen. It is not a sooial club, or a culture society but a place where one of the Lord's day may come in touch with Gml in worship and receive joy "that tbc world cannot give or take away." The Congregational church invite yon to worship with them next Sum! .y. In the morning the pastor will speak from the subject: Wishes and Christian Character. Of the evening there will be another sermon of the series: Modern Application of Scriptural Problems. William L. Dibblk Marriage Licenses. Daniel Flaherty. Genoa 34 Josephine M. Chalfont.
