vclopment up to the present time. Part second
is i complete civil government of Nebraska and
as an appendix is added the state constitution.
The author treats of our system of local govern
ment systematically and clearly, describing in a
few words the duties of all officers from the lowest
to the highest, and gives us in a clear condensed
form the descriptions of the "supervisor" and the
"commissioner" systems of country government
as we have them to-day in our state. In view of
the fact that there exists, even among otherwise
well educated people, so much ignorance on
matters of local government, it truly seems to us
that Mr. Barrett has opened up a topic of utmost
importance to Nebraska people in general. The
work is on the whole thoroughly a Nebraska pro
duction. Written by a Nebraskan with a preface
by the Chancellor of the University of Nebraska,
and printed by a Nebraska firm. May it accom
plish the mission for which its author intended it.
