F. C. Hose. late of Valisca, la., who
1 lecenlly rented the Robert McLean farm
7 miles west of Silver Creek, had the
misfortune to have a leg broken last Fri

gaged in unloading them to take to the
farm when the accident happened. Mr.
Hose had part of the goods unloaded
and was leading bis team up to hitch on
to his wagon which was being moved by
his helpers. In some way the wagon

Ono of the most important meetings
of the board of education, held this year,
was that of Mouday evening. The mut
ter of employing a principal was taken
up, aud the present principal, Prof.
Englemann. engaged for another year.
During the last year, which is his lirst 111
Monroe, he has given very good satis
faction. Auother important matter tak
en up was the addition of another grade
making twelve instead of eleven years
work. This means additional expense,
and m order to help meet it the board
decided to discontinue the school wagon.
The money expended for the wagon is ul
most enough to add the additional grade,
and the board feel justilied in their ac
tion, believing it would be of great ad
vantage to the school. It is understood
that the number of pupils served by the
wagon has decreased until there is very
little demand for it, und the addition of
the extra grade will more thou compen
sate for its lots. There was oue motion
up before board meeting that some of
the members desired to go on record on
that of employing teachers who occa
sionally attended dances. The motion
was to the effect that those teachers
who did not dance would be given the
preference, und those voting for it were
Hollingsbcad, Terry und tierrurd, and
against were Gibbon and Smith. And
in this connection it is understood that
the board will be asked to insert in all
contracts with lady teachers a provison
that they shall nut marry during the
term of their contract.

The editor is looking for a hole in the

particular oue is being sought. Anyone
who cau locale the same will confer a
great favor on Koht. Gilder, the world
renowned archaeologist, employed by
the Omaha World-Herald, und the editor
will be grateful. The hole has a history
and Mr. Gilder wants to locate it and
investigate. Major Long, who explored
the North Platte country in 1.S1D-20.
found this hole The Indians then in
the territory knew nothing about the
place, claiming it was there before their
time. It is described us an excavation
D feet deep in the hillside north of Shell
creek and withiu the boundunes of
Colfax county. Mr. Gilder has already
unearthed many wonders and pre-his-toric
relics in like places. If anyone
knows of such an excavation or a pecu
liar hole that is unaccounted fur let the
editor know, us it may be a ilnd of world
importance to the bcience of archeology.
Mr. Gilder has unearthed north ot
Omaha, near Florence, the bones of
people who ante-dated the Indians in
this country by a long period of time.
He is still working ou this discovery and
is the best posted man, on the archaeo
logy of Nebraska, in the world today.
It may be that within the borders of
Colfax county discoveries may be made
that will startle the world. If any one
knows of any lndiau mouuds or graves
or any peculiar ridges that are unac
counted for report the same to the Sun
office and if of importance enough Mr.
Gilder nm investigate Above all help

The Word "Gaiters."
Episcopal gaiters cannot date from a
very remote antiquity The very word
"gaiters" is almost a newcomer to the
language. Johnson's Dictionary does
not recognize its existence. It does not
occur before 17(U). and even In 1802 a
military dictionary had to define it as
"a sort of spatterdashes" "(Suetre."
however, the French original, goes
back at least to the fifteenth century,
and the origin of ih.it is lost, though
etymologists compare all sorts of
words iu all sorts of languages, includ
ing an old German word for a baby's
christening cloth. The one certainty is
that gaiters has nothing to do with
gait in spite of the punning line In the
"Itejocted Addresses" "Las In their
gaiters, laser in their gait." London
The Self Sacrifice of Fadzeau.
A fine historical dog story is recalled
by Mr. Edwin Noble in "The Dog Lov
er's Book." The Incident Is connected
with the flight of William Wallace to
the mountains after Erneside. accom
panied by only sixteen followers,
among whom was one named Fad
zeau. When the baying of the blood
hounds was hoard announcing the
coming of the English Fadzcnu refused
to go any farther, affecting weariness,
and Wallace, suspecting hlra of traitor
ous Intentions, killed him. When the
English came up the hounds stayed
upon the dead body and refused to fol
low beyond the stains of blood.

The things we want are sordid things,

growing grass; we miss the splendor of
the night, the glory of the dawn; for we
arc dreaming of the fight that every day
brings on. The useless fight for useless
drose, the war of hand and brains; and
O, bow heavy is our loss bow futile are
onr gains! This life is but a little jaunt
across a little sphere; there's notbibg in
the path to daunt, or bring a sigh or

cheek, or fill the heart with care, if we
would only cease to seek for trouble in
its lair. If we would only look around
upon the good in life! Hut evermore,
