(From a Btaff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, All. IS. (Special.) One of
the strongest and meet convincing proof
of the prosperity of the people of the
atate, especially those of the rural com
munities, la the scarcity of public school
teachers. A few yesrs ago there was a
demand for practically every school posi
tion In the stste; now there Is a demand
(or teachers In nearly every county. Even
la Lancaster county, the home at the Uni
versity of Nebraska and several other col
leges, there are aot enough teachera to go
around. Frontier county has reported forty
vacanclea In Its rural achools, and the su
perintendent of Hamilton county ha writ
ten the atate superintendent that thirty
five of the belt qualified teachers-of that
district have resigned. McPberson, Adams
and Bos Butte have reported vecsnrlea and
asked the state superintendent to assist In
finding teachera for their achools.
The publicity given the fact that there
la a acarolty of teachers In Nebraska hss
Increased the correspondence of the su
perintendent's office, applications being re
ceived dally from various other states. To
all of these Inquiries Superintendent Fowler
I am la receipt of your letter of recent
data. There are vacancies In the rural
achools In - nearly every county In the
atate, with the exception t Cheyenne, Ne
maha and Saline. In the western counties
specially the demand for good teachers is
greater than the suppply.- I would suggest
that you correspond with the superintend
ents of the counties In which you would
he willing to teach."
The auperlntendent of McPberson county
aends Mr. Fowler the following appeal:
"I write you regarding the situation In our
county aa to teachers. There are needed
in the county about eight teachera, count
ing the district Intended to be organised,
and counting . two each ' for the districts
containing two school houses, in the dis
tricts now organised there are four that
will have schools aa follows: . One for nine
months, divided between two school houses,
pay $30 par month; one for three months,
35; one for four months, $26: and one for
twelve months, divided between two school
houses, $30. As you probably remember
there waa not a teacher for this county to
attend the county Institute, and as attend
ance at an Institute is a necessary quali
fication It leaves us without any teachers.
I am writing to you to sea If you can solve
the problem for us as to where we are
going to get teachers. Some teachers ob

of the distance from town, as some of the

KEARNEY. Neb.. Aug. 18. (Speclsl Tel
fgrsm.) Miss Fonda Lang of Callaway
died at the city hospital In Kearney Sun
day morning at 7:30 or typhoid fever, re
sulting from complications of other
trouble. Back of her troubles which she
came to Kesrney to hide was a young msn
of the vicinity of Csllaway, who disap
peared at about the time the girl's troubles
culminated in this city.
The young lady's parents live on a farm
near Callaway and are said to be In good
circumstances, but they threw her over
entirely when they learned of her trouble,
and during the weeks she was In the hos
pital here they would have nothing to do
with her nor come to see ber nor con
tribute anything to her comfort or main
tenance. They were kept advised of the
girl's condition and were telegraphed to
Ssturday to come to Kearney at once if
they would see their daughter alive. A
telegram was sent Sunday advising them
of her death, but the father refused to pay
for or receive the telegram - and could no
more than surmise the content. The fu
neral was held this afternoon from Bow
ers' undertaking parlor. The entire ex
pense of the sickness and burial of Misa
Lang have been borne by the county, but
as ahe was a minor and the father Is able
to pay the claim hss been given to an at

father and Invite him to liquidate.

eight appesred In play on the opening day,
and In three of the matches these cracka
were opposed to each other. The other
two had comparatively essy things.
As a result of all this soma of the best

and consequently the consolation tourna

feated In the first round are eligible, will
be the vehicle of tennla very little Inferior
to that of the struggle for the challenge
This unusual bunching of the strong men
In the opening afternoon'a play resulted from
the failure of several of those scheduled for
the preliminary rounds to arrive. Eight I
matches were arranged for the preliminary
round for Monday. Owing to the absence
of outsiders only three of the pairs were
present and ready to play. It was decided
to announce no defaults, but to play oft
seme of the first round pairs In place of
the Ave. This was done, five matches from
the first round, which hsd drawn byca for
Monday, being called out anyway. This
brought out the cracks and generally one

Five Matches Deferred.
The five matches deferred from the pre
liminary round will be played, commencing
at S o'clock this morning, when all the men
will be here. The winners In these will be
compelled to play a second match, or the
first round struggle proper, at 11 o'clock.
Thus It Is planned to get all the first round
and preliminary round out of the way to
day and a good start will probably be se
cured on the second round. The five pre
liminary round matchea to occur this morn
W. F. Prowett of Fullerton, Neb., against
W. S. Gllmsn of Sioux City, la.; E. A.
Carey of North Platte. Neb., against John

City; C. C. Cockerlll of Pittsburg, Kan.,
against L. B. Pasewalk of Norfolk. Neb.:
E. M. Ashcraft of Chicago against William
Michael of Sioux City.
It has been learned that Norman A. Webi
ster of Hastings, Neb., who won the tour
nament last year, and therefore holda the
singles cup, will not be present to de
fend his title, so the cup will go to the
winner of this tournament permanently.
Mr. we Deter, wss said to have started train.
lng for the event, but be later decided not
to make the effort. He would have had to
play only the winner of the present sin
A large gallery waa out to see the first
day's sport. In this there were many
women, ana tic crowd was very enthusias
tic. Scattered over the veranda or on the
grass terraces below the spectators had a
commanding view of all the courts. Great In
teiest was manifested in the play of the
visitors, many of whom showed beautiful
style. Several strangers have already won
many frlenda by their plsy.
Raymond nnd Howell Meet.
The keenest and best played match waa
between Raymond of Lincoln and Howell of
Sioux City. Though everyone did not know
it, this affair was for blood. Raymond Is
champion of Lincoln, Howell of Sioux City.
The towns are about of a alze and both are
keen tennis centers. Moreover, Howell haa
long te;n looking for a chance to meet
Raymond, but has never before had It. To
sdd to the situation, last week McOee beat
Raymond in the singles at Sioux City, and
later Howell beat McOee.
But yesterday "Ike" waa the better man.
Though the first set was a heart breaker, the
very fact that Raymond finally pulled It out
against great odds and then took the sec
end set 6-8 proves that he won the match
decisively. Both are clever and both play
from the head. "Ike" won by playing a net
game and wearing hla man out In the first
fierce set. In thst Howell, by consistent,
careful tennis, had Raymond 3-1 and then
4-2 and then 6-3. But Raymond made It
deuce and won amid great applause, 7-6.
Tbey changed ends, and "Ike" took the
Caldwelfs victory over Holland takea rank
aa the closest match of all, though It had
not the apeed of the Raymond-Howell go,
and the conquest Is a great credit to the
Omaha man. Sam was at bis best. His
Lawford especially wss Invincible, aa Hol
land could never place it on a return. With
that and a net gsme which always won
when he used It Sam fought to a victory
through two fierce deuce sets. Holland la a
college boy, being a atudent at Knox. He
Is si no a member of the Phi Delta Theta
fraternity, so he has started up a great
friendship with Raymond and Farnsworth,
who belcng to the same "frat" at the L'ni
vtrslty of Nebraska.
In the Parker-Young match the better
man won. Oreat interest centered In this,
not only because Parker Is booked ss a win
ner, but also because Young is tho champion
of Omaha. The letter may well be said to
have beaten himself. He had very poor con
trol, for although he could generally get
to the balls sll right and handle them, they
went out of court or Into the net so fre
quently that Young had no chance to score
very much. His styls was nsvertheless
pure, and his back-hand pass, hla best
s'.rcks, was at times effective. His own er
ror lost the match, or at least, made ths
score what It was. Parker la a beautiful
tennla player. On Monday's showing he Is
tbs most finished in the lot. He Is strong
when It la needed, yet very crafty and
herdy. He la very husky and athletlo look
ing, and from hla appearance he could work
at the .game all day without tiring. He won
6-1, 6-2. The first five games he took In a
row. Parker allowed "Con" to wear light
bandages in the set-to.
Farnsworth had Van Camp outclassed,
though the latter played good buslness-llks
tennis to the best of his ability and ex
perience. Esrl won almost at will, 6-0, 6-0.
Everyone waa Interested in the little cham
pion and his rapid play. The women called
him "cute;" the men said bs wss a
Hopkins beat tlyan, 6-2, 6-2, by knowing
the game better all around, aad playing
from hia bead.
Sanderson had Webstsr outclassed, though
the latter plugged away with admirable good

spirit. He knew he didn't have a ahow,
but he never wilted. Several polnta he
could have switched by killing the ball at
the net when it came at him in great shape
for a smash.
Copeland Shows Well.
Copeland is plainly a young player of
not much class experience, who did himself
mighty proud by taking aeren games from
McQee In two sets. In fact, he ran the
first aet -4, winning msny points by being
wise enough to take advantage ef McGee's
lack of control. The latter is showing grand
style, being easily superior to all but Parker
in that. Practice should make him a power.
Dr. Sheldon found himself against a "vet"
at the game. Graves. "Doc" won, -2,
by passing his opponent repeatedly and
smashing them merrily at times. Gravea haa
a very thorough knowledge of the game,
however, as his plsy shows.
No msn in the entry list drew harder
than Raymond.. Hla first mouthful wss
Howell, whom he beat. - Now he must p)ay
McOee, who beat him at Sioux City a few
days since. Should he succeed In defeating'
McOee, he must meet Ashcraft, the Chicago
crack, who won -the final singles last Friday
at the Windy City in the Axtee Tennla club's
tournament for the championship of the
ncrth side. "Ike" thinks he haa plenty.
