The contributions taku this direction be

U , , Hccms to mo that as Miss Shattuck , by the
K loss of her lower limbs , IncurrCfJ in the direct
B- line of her duty to the public , mostvheroically
performed , has probably been too severely
crippled to continue her calling us a teacher ,
oven if shocan earn a good living In any other
pursuit , to say nothing of the aged parent
partly dependent upon her , as stated in your
paper , bus u peculiar claim upon the public.
I think such a fund should bo raised for her ,
that the interest would afford her at least a
comfortable living If not more.
If you deem it practicable to find among the
thousands of readers of your paper , so many
as two hundred or more persons , each of
whom will give not less than f-'ill for the crea
tion of a fund of say tO)0 ( ) ( ) or morc.tho | inter
est on that amount would afford Miss Shat
tuck at least an assurance of livelihood , ami
I will bo exceedingly glad to bo ono of that
number. Jonx J. MUNUI.I. .
The contribution of Mr. Monull is a very
generous ono and it is hoped that his excel
lent example will bo imitated by many oth
ers. The suggestion that a fund of ? ( UKK ) bo
raised for Miss Shattuck by contributions of
not less than Ufiom ) two hundred or more
gentlemen is as opportune as it Is excellent.
This movement to rowiird these bravo teach
ers is yet In Its Infancy but speedily gather
ing strength and dignity. The case of Etta
Shattuck demands something moro than a
purse of spending money. More than IX ( )
has been raised for her but it Is time that a
systematic effort should bo nmdo to increase
tlicamount. And why not to ( i,0X ( ) . Though
already a very generous donur Mr. Monell
offers to bo one of two hundred gentlemen
who will contribute * : iO each in order to
raise the desired . * < iKX , ( ) . Certainly there are
Itt ) men in the state of Nebraska who
Will follow his example. The presentation of
Btich a sum would bo a credit to the state and
a lasting benellt to the unfortunate girl.

FIFTY YEARS AGO.
A Itccord Without a Parallel in the
Jlimory ol * the World.
Now York Times : Fifty years ago
Michigan , Ohio. Indiana and Missouri
wore frontier states , and Wisconsin
and Iowa wore just becoming known as
territories , with only a few thousand
scattered pioneers. Kansas and Ne
braska wore unheard of , and constituted
a portion of what was then known as
"The Great American Desert , " under
stood to bo utterly dry , barren and
worthless. All west and northwest to
the Pacific constituted a great unknown
of mountain and forest that had only
boon fra.ver.--cd by Lewis and Clark and
a few daring huntorsr Then the emi
grant traveled west in his covered
wagon "prairie sehoonor" but if from
the far east , upon the Erie canal and
the lakes , or the , Ohio and Mississippi
rivers , and his' progress by cither
method of travel wtw slow and tedious.
At about this period railroads began
to attract attention , and a few short
lines were constructed from Baltimore
west , from Boston to Lowell , and from
Sartoga to Schencctady. The tracks
wore of Hat bar iron upon lengthwise
wooden timbers , and the entire equip
ment mo-t imperfect. However , this
beginning of a great material revolu
tion soon attracted the attention of in-
got'.ious , inventive men , who studied
the defects of these early constructions
and dev ed numborlcbs improvements
for increasing speed nnd for greater
wifotytolife and limb. In a few years
the telegraph inudo its appearance , and
soon became brilliant headlights to take
tin ) place of the kettle of coals and the
lirwt used upon the locomotives in night
runniiiir , and then substantial T-rails
; > nd switches , automatic couplers , air
braiCM , and ilnally comforUblo and lux
urious .sleeping and palace cars. It is
far easier nO'.V to travel from Now York
to San FraneiscO thnn it was 11 fly years
ago to go from Boston ' -0 Albany.
As a natural consequence of this vast
nnd nearly perfect sy tom of railroads ,
every available nook and corner of this
great country is Hlled with an industri
ous nnd prosjicroiis people , praeticelly
more than doubling tlio states and ter
ritories and population in half a century.
Can any parallel be found of this in his
tory , either in fifty or iivo hundred
yearhV And what has accomplished it ?
Fourth of July orations , preaching
about a state of being ; future or pres
ent , or pulling party political wires ?
By no means. The ton thousand inven
tions relating to railroads , telegraph
and labor-saving machinery with whicl
to husband and utilize the fecundity o

two minutes there was ajitop and a sud
den dull thud. This awakened his curi
osity. When it happened for about the
twentieth time ho got up to see what
it was. Ho found the driver looking
clear oucr the side of the car in front ,
getting as far away as possible from
where the mule was vainly trying to
kick the dashboard to pieces.
"What's the matter ? "
"That's all right. Go back and sit
down. He'll bo through in a minute. "
When the man wanted the car to stop
the mule insisted upon going on. The
driver jumped over the front , ran back
and put on the brake behind. The
mule was astonished for a minute and
lol lly a vigorous kick at the dashboard.
Then finding that ho really was ex
pected to stop , ho looked nrounc pleased"
and waited till ho was ordered on
again , when ho went on kicking at the
dashboard every few feet ab he moved

CLEANING UP !
Our patrons , who at the opening of past seasons , have examined
our stock of men's and boy's clothing , will endorse when we state that
we enter a second season with new goods only. Our spring goods are
already on the way , and we must make room for them. We have not
the space to carry over a heavy stock of winter goods as is done by
most clothiers. Our largely increased business compels us to utilize
every foot of room in our establishment for the transaction of our
aily business and we are therefore comDelledto close out every hea
vy weight garment on our counters. To do this we make any necessa
ry sacrifice in pricess. The reductions we have made on overcoats
and suits , and the values we are offering , will surprise everybody. To
bargain seekers this is the greatest opportunity , as the pri ce of every
garment is about one half what other houses ask for same qualitie s.
To make a clearance of a large lot of all wool scarlet shirts and
drawers , we offer them at 35c. This is an immense bargain , as they
are good , heavy goods and would , in the early season , be cheap at 75c.
What little to ere is left of Fur , Jersey and Knit Caps , is offered at
one-half what they are worth. Closing out odds and ends of gloves ,
furs and mufflers , at greatly reduced prices.
All goods marked in plain figures and at strictly ons prica.
