through the green meadows aa "we leave
the doar old walls for the last time, per

getting in preparation a speech that will
be delivered many times under assumed
names. The glorious commencement time
is In the air. From out the capital soon
will go Governor Mickey, State Superin
tendent Fowler, Congressman Burkett and
others a mighty host, to tell the gradu
ates they "are leaving school Ufa to enter
life's school." '
And that recalls the ' fact that In Ne
braska many school Urea have been lived
this year and last year and most every
year, even in the days before Buffalo Bill
became educated In the circus business and
before junior normal schools were thought
of. And that' recalls that in 189 there
were scattered through Nebraska
eventy-four ' public school houses. The
table In the last report of the state supers
tntendent does not show what they were
built of, so It goes that sod or logs was the
principal material. The next year the
education fever rose several degrees and
the number of school districts were In
creased from 877 to 797, und the number
of buildings to SOL To show the history

What the Records Don't Show.
The records do not show what material
was used In the erection of the buildings
in the years 1878, 1881 and In 1869, probably
because there were not enough brick houses
constructed to make a good showing. In
1899 there was In the lot one baled straw
house, but whether It was constructed and
named In honor of Bill Nye and his "Baled
Hay" does not appear. ,
. It is believed by most 'all concerned
that the sod houses are on their last legs
and that In a few short years more they
will have disappeared. If not because of the
pride of a new generation that venerates
not the old, by legislative act, like tho
prairie dog. That the tendency la in this
direction was shown during the last legis
lature when Mrs. Bowser, she of sod house
rather than M. Quad fame, sought to have
the state donate her $2,000 to be used
in the construction of a sod house at the
lioulniana Purchase exposition. It was her
intention to make the tipper story of this
house modern In every respect, that it
would show in a nut shell the growth and
progress of the state since the days of one
Napoleon. But the legislature would have
none of It. It was the general verdict that
Nebraska needed not a sod house at St
Louis- to tell the people what we "used
to was."
Statistics oa Teachers.
Last year there were 9,629 school teachers
employed, and of this number 7,767 were
females and 1,862 males, which all goes to
show that if all the female teachers are
"woman suffragists" bright and early some
of these mornings women will be voting
to beat the band. In 1900 there were 7,491
female teachers and 2,062 males wielding the
rod Just how many of these female teach
ers were cousins and sisters-in-law of the
members of the school board Is not known.
This substitution of women for men in
the school room has occurred In all . the
states of the union and Its results have
been seriously considered by. many men of
prominence. The last -report of the state
superintendent says there are few reports
In existence prior to 1870, either state or
national, that will furnish much Informs
tton on this question. The report of the
United States Commission of Education for
1899-1900 shows that in 1870-71 the male
teachers jvero 41 per cent of the entire
corps. In 1879-80 they were 43. But during

he next ten years the women began to
come to the front. The report shows that
In thoee years the percentsge of male
teachers dropped to 14t4. and In 109-1900 to
30 per cent. In the North Atlantic division
now only 18 H per cent are males; the South
Central division has 47 per cent males; the
North Central division has 29 per cent
males. To this division Nebraska belongs
and of all the states In this division Ne
braska has th least per cent of male
teachers, having dropped from (2 per cent
In 1870-71 to less than 19 per cent at the
present time. In 1899 and 1900 Nebrsska
men teachers held the percentage up to 22,
but the crash came In 1901, when they
dropped down three pegs.
Moaepely for the Woaaea.
And this little gathering of statistics may
afford a them for some sweet girl gradu
ate, for, lo, many men have bemoaned this
fact of women teaching and thus com
pelling men to go to work. Prof. Hugo
Munsterberg In writing on the subject
said: "The primary school today la abso
lutely monopolised by woman teachers and
In the high school they have an over
whelming majority. The reason for this Is
clear, sine the woman does not have to
support a family, she can work for a
smaller salary. Female competition
must, if no halt la called, bring down sal
aries to a point from which th supporter
of a family must retreat." Th professor
concludes his article by saying: "Thar
was never before a nation that gave th
education of th young into the hands of
th lowest bidder."
The strange part of thta Is that In th
schools of Nebraska, according to th last
report of th state superintendent, there
wer 190,421 male pupil and 184.917 female
pupils. But notwithstanding that a greater
number of pupils are males, a rank out
sider could tell that Nebraska publlo
schools were In the hands of women. They
could tell it by a little Incident that hap
pened in Omaha. On bright, beautiful
warm morning last summer about thirty
male pupils of the High school strolled Into
the school room wearing shirt waists and
defiant airs. The principal raised up In his
mighty wrath and he drove from out th
tempi these young men. but they came
back after frequent meetings and confer
ences arid the shirt waists remained In
school. Whether the female teachers
chuckled In glee at this victory of women's
wearing apparel la not recorded, but It Is
said the male teachers, the last of a pass
Ing race, have banded together to prevent
young men from wearing divided skirts.
Probably they will not succeed, for the
tendency among the fashionable young men
of today is In that direction. And th
fashion plates show It.

Eeitful Summer Vacation Aooompluhed on
Firo Dollars a lionth.
Aa Experleaeo that May Be Followed
by These ia Neeel at a Pro
tract ed Rest with Llttl
Money Take It Oa.
Th summer outing of tho average work
ing woman la rarely a time that ah re
members with pleasure. In nine cases out
of ten the two or three weeks which con
stitute th vacation must b spent In coun
try boarding houses too crowded for com
fort. Saturday afternoon brings out even
more perspiring humanity to add its noisy
quota toward the further undoing of sensi
tive nerves, and when th brief sojourn In
Arcadia Is over the woman In search of
rest wonders why ah had not thought of
spending her vacation In town.
But on young woman has solved th
problem of how to get a quiet and pleas
uraabla summer outing on next to nothing.
To her sister who Is In need of a protracted
rest and who la wondering where th
money for It will com from, her experi
ence will prove extremely Interesting.
As the young woman in question had
brought on complicated y trouble by her
work, a long country rest waa at last ad
vised, hearing which dictum, she at ono
mad out In her mind th following memo
randum of her resource :
Cash pa band: $69.
Drawbacks to summer board: Expense,
voices, pianos.
Gifts for playing Robinson Crusoe: Cour
age, cooking, washing, gardening.
Available amusements: Walking, boating,
"So bet It," said th young; woman, who
already felt a delicious interest in th no
tion, "I shall play Robinson Crusoa"
Aa Oatlagr la aa Attle.
The next thing was to find a desert
Island, and this. In th shap of three attic
room in a long-closed farm house, was
soon appropriated.
This came about In th most accidental
way. Somebody suggesting an Interior
county aa an excellent place for the scheme
of Isolation and Independence, the young
woman took the hint and a train, and In a
little over an hour's time was set out at a
little town. Here, for the sum of Sl-60, a
man In top boots agreed to put himself
and his buckboard at her service for a
tour of the country. Ha told of th quiet
of Cross river, a sort of deserted village
from, which ' sleeping hamlet everybody
who had not died had moved away to be
nearer the railroad. The cheap possibilities
of the place striking home, a drive of
four miles brought them to the haven.
In the deep shade of superb old trees sat
a long gray house, billed to rent, which
th exile at one settled upon as her abode.
An old farmer, who cam up th hill to
do the talking. Informed the woman that
the rent was 16 a month. But th goods
of one John Donoghu had littered the
best of the twelve rooms for a year; so
until he could consult a lawyer aa to their
removal for John had flown in the night
with his portable riches eh must be con
tent with the three attlo rooms which
overlooked the valley. For these the rent
would be 21 month, though this exorbi
tant sum included a "garden patch," a
spring of "fin" water and all the "fire
wood" that th tenant wished to pick up.
Presently the old man seemed to place
th eccentrlo newcomer.
"Be ye on o' them artists folks?" he
asked. N
8h nodded. .
All was plain sailing after this, for the
man now became as anxious to keep the
windfall aa he had been a moment before
to send it away.
How the Attle Was Famished.
He had known an "artist lady" one be
fore, and all the cockles of his heart
warmed to the clan. There was no end to
his favors. Hearing that there was only
a trunk to be moved .from the railroad
station, he "guessed" that the stranger
might use any of the absconding Donog
hue's furniture and not send for her own.
Then there waa a nice tick down at the
shop that, filled with new hay, would make
a fin mattress for her; and if she liked
"them things" brown bean Jugs, an old
chest painted black, and a cracked willow
dish, weeded from John's litter there was,
too, at th shop a pile of "Junks" she might
pick over. He began to wonder, even. If he
had not chsrged too much rent for th
attic chambers.
The "Junks" of th shop surpassed th
young woman's wildest hopes. The Don
oghu household goods had been of a sort
to set th teeth on edge, but her, covered
with dust, and scratched and broken, wer
antique bits of purest beauty.
She remembered to have heard that the
region In question waa famous for its an.
clent furniture, and warned ths landlord
that the pieces he was willing to sell for
so little would bring much higher prices
In the city.
He set the point aside. Th city was
"fur" away, and ten years ago many of
the things had been left with htm to sell
at these prices. Under such argument the
listener felt hey scruples fade; and for
"twenty shillings" a wide-topped, thin
legged Chippendale sideboard became hers.
A radiant old blue quilt, hand-woven and
with "Prudence" In th corners the nam
of th long-dead spinner followed for SLM.
and a low chest of drawers with carved
feet for $2.
Certain quaint, high-backed chairs the
old man would not sell from sheer senti
ment. He had begun married life with
them fifty-five years before, and had thrown
them aside for newer fashions. They really
were not worth anything, but. since they
pleased the "city lady," she was welcome
to th loan of them.
In a cedar chest wer linen sheets, soma
entirely whole, though spotted with time,
likewise spun by the. departed Prudence.
Th young woman yearned for th sheets.
These, however, wer beyond price. They
would fall "to holes" In the washing,' the
old man argued. But sine th newcomer
handled the coarse meshes tenderly, a loan
of four was thrust upon her.
With this courtesy he hauled forth a
spindling wooden settee aa a present, to
eaa his conscience for all the money h
had taken from her.
Food for Kathlag.
Indeed, th whole lonely section of coun
try soon proved strangely Indifferent to th
value of money, and th subject, besides.
needed to be delicately touched upon. For
her tl rental the young woman had several
pieces of furniture, sheets, dishes, an occa
slonal drive, and th privileges of th farm
er's kitchen garden. The argument waa al
ways the same. "W ain't usln' 'em," or
"We throw it away, so why should you
Even a scrubby little fox terrier came up
as guardian of the night, and an old bay
onet, ground to stiletto sharpness, wss
added by way of a weapon against the pos
sible marauder.
The new establishment one In working
order the old man's wide straw hat ceased
to como up the hill many times a day to
se how hla guest was getting a'ong. But
the new pleasures of her quaint menage
kept her from loneliness, and since she
needed to skirmish somes hat for existence
th night found ber ready for the deep
gomstlmw ah waa tut U U for a break
fast, being of forgetful mrmory and th
supply wagons passing only twlc a week.
But the fact dfd not dismay her, even
though th larder was bar as waa Mother
Hubbard's cupboard.
The Instinct of the chase was awakened,
and with something of the fierce Best that
was primeval man's, field, hill and brook
wer ransacked for their llfe-glTlng treas
ures. t
On by one, aa the season advanced, the
wild gifts of nature poured Into th gray
house by the roadway strawberries, rasp,
berries, mushrooms, field aalad, wild cher
ries, wild gtapea and nuts of many sorts.
For all the land contiguous to the house
belonged to her landlord, and the tenant
waa privileged to roam wherever she chose.
Expenses Jast as a Month.
With such delicacies at command, th 210
determined on for monthly expenses soon
left a cheering surplus. One dollar a week
was all that was spent for "boughten
stuffs" from the supply wagons. With th
monthly rental, th entire expanses wer
23 a month.
Th rainy days were th. hardest of all
to bear, for the solitary householder had
no eyea for books. But soon she found
that If there were neither clothes nor
dishes to wash she could occupy her fing
ers by shipping rags, which, for 25 cants
th woven yard, a weaver who passed
would resolve Into radiant portieres and
floor rugs.
In one way and another she busied her
self, and when the end of vacation com
she was as strong as any country bred girl
and mora than ready for her work.
If she had spent every penny of her 260
she had made 2100 mora. Friends paid her

cost little; and as to their main ingredi
ents, what nature had not held out to her.
th young woman's own doll baby "garden

cherishing hands, had supplied.
As sh took the train one bright morning
for the city the young woman, who had'
so usefully employed th period of con
valescence, felt sh had reason to be
pleased with her four months' outing. She
had learned to sleep Ilk a baby, waa In
