To the Editor of the Hni : : Enclosed find

contrast to mule teacherr. In our own county ,
one of whom hunt his scholars , to their own
homes ( some nearly two miles distant ) .ind
then cowardly sought bis boarding phtco
twenty rods from the school house. The
other left his pupils at tlio school house and
was going tp his boarding place , when ho was
mot by n parent of one of the pupils , who or
dered him luck tb the school huiibc , thrc.it-
cnmg him with iliro vengeance if ho durod to
Icuvo the school house again until every
' uipll had been provided for.Vo have some
lurolnes In this county. Hravo Maggie Wer-
fluid , n delicate young girl teaching in Center
district , remained with her pupils all nlglitat
the school housso rather than risit them to the
danger : ) of the storm. I do not think too
much can bo said in pralso of our brave
young lady teachers thioughout the state
who , in the hour of peril , pioved themselves
true to their duty. N. P. Srvrrouu.

penny contributions the sum of ? 3.0fl for the

It is proposed to raise n fund of $ iOcX ! , ) to be

This fund U to be made up of contributions ol

To the Printer * and Htcreotyiicrs.
Generosity to a fault is n characteristic of
the printer. An appeal In behalf of n worthy
cause is not likely to bo In vain , when pre
sented to this class i of busy men. It Is not
: ho history of the past , and probably will not
be the fact of the faturo that the average
nrlnt" rolls In luxury , J et in Omaha the
representatives of this class are fairly paid.
It would not bo necessary to sny that they
can afford to contribute to the Etta Shnt-
iuck fund. The very fact that the poor girl
lias been deprived of her limbs , appeals
: o iho generous nature of the printers of
Omaha ; and while the representatives of
ihis class are not overburdened with cash
their response will certainly bo as prompt as
it is cheerful. The Hin : suggests that the
union printers of Omaha meet and fix n day
upon which ear h will set n thousand type for
the bcnellt of Etta Shattuck.
The stercotypcrs , too , can add to the fund

CLEANING UP !
Our patrons , who at the opening of past seasons , have examine
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
ailybusin ess and we are therefore cent > eied to close out every hea
vy weight garment on our counters. To do this we make any necessary - *
ry sacrifice in pricess. The reductions we have made on overcoats
land suits , and the values we are offering , will surprise everybody. To
bargain seekers this is the greatest opportunity , as the pri ce of every1
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 tliere 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 one pried.
