(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Neb., April 15 -(Special.)
By the grace of the last legislature the
festive insurance agent will be abroad In
the land with both feet In the near future
and there will be enough of him to go to
the back and the front doors a the same
time. Thla by. reason of the bill that was
passed reducing the agent'a lleeuse fee
from $2.00 to 60 cents. Many of the com
panies are doubling the number of agents
and some are filing three times the num
ber of applications for agents' licenses as
last year. One company that paid In $286
for 143 agents' licenses last year to date
has paid $10 for licenses tor 212 agents
Another company that paid $302 for 152
agents last year has already paid In $217
for 434 agents. And more are expected.
The employes In the office of the secre
tary of state are busy getting out certl
fled copies of bills and the other state
officials are busy familiarizing themselves
with the provisions of the new acts that
affect their offices.
Governor Mickey haa completed his work
on the bills passed by the legislature and
is now figuring on some of the appoint
ments he will have to make under the new
acts. He has yet to appoint the South
Omaha police commission, and one mem
ber of the St. Louis exposition commis
sion, haying already appointed two mem
bers of that body. Besides he has to ap
point the Iowa-Nebraska and the South
Dakota-Nebraska boundary commission, a I
state architect, an oil inspector and a dep
uty game warden. These latter two plums
are liable to drop most any time.
The governor spent the day at Osceola
but yesterday he said it waa not his In
tention to appoint a police board for South
Omaha until he had thoroughly canvassed
the situation and knew Just who he wat
appointing. "I want to appoint good men
who will be acceptable to the people and
who will do their duty." he said.
So far little talk has been Indulged In
with reference to the state architect, but
It la presumed that before very long the
woods will be full of applicants. The gov
ernor has been so busy lately that doubt
less applicants have thought It the wiser
course to wait.
Deputy Game Warden Slmpklns, who dur
ing the legislature, has been shut up In
a room off from the office of the state
treasurer, has removed to hla old office on
the aecond floor. State Veterinarian
Thomas and Food Commissioner Bassett
have not yet returned to their old offices.
Aaxloas About Normals.
And In the meantime the western por
tion of the state la anxious about those
five junior normal schools that the legis
lature wrangled so much about. Three of
the schools were located In the bill and
the other two are yet to find a resting
place. Today Superintendent Fowler went
to Holdrege to see the people of that town,
at the solicitation of the people. They
want one of the schools. So doea Lexing
ton and Chadron. When Mr. Fowler re
turns he will plan the summer work of
the schools. At present he contemplates s
ten weeks' course similar. to-the .course
of the state normal. The faculties are yet
to be chosen.
Women's Forelan Missions.
The seventeenth annual convention of the
Lincoln district of the Women'a Foreign
Missionary aociety was held here today

M. Davis showed the total receipts were
$5,015.80; total disbursements, $5,040.67;
home expenses, $162.82; balance April 1,

She also stated that two good women bad
offered to loan money to them to com
plete a new building in the foreign field, the
same to be returned when convenient. This
offer has been accepted and the building
will be com: d In the early fall. Mrs.
Crlssman of a, Kas., had left a legacy

The corresponding secretary reported that
$1,000 had been raised upon the earnest so
