LINCOLN, Feb. U.-i8peclal.)-uperln-tendent
Hsyward of the Industrial school at
Keiirney was a caller at the stale house
yesterday and took time to express himself
In favor of court officer vending boys to
the school without an escort. Mr. Hsyward
ssld reposing this trust In a boy who had
been sentenced to the school did more than
anything else to take from the boy's mind
the Idea that he was a criminal and the
world was against him. It gave the boy
corfldence In himself and Impressed him
with the eldea the state was Interested In
making him a good cltlaen.
"Probation Officer Bernstein of Omaha
and I talked the matter over," said Mr.
Hayward, "And we decided to try It. Sev
eral boys have been sent out from Omaha
without being accompanied by an officer,
and so far they have come all right. The
appearance of the first boy atone created
some surprise among the boys at the school,
but they looked upon It as quite an achieve,
tnent, and they Showed some little envy
that the boy had been trusted.
"Now the boys are striving with each
other to see which can be trusted the most.
For the last two years I have allowed boys
who were sick to go home atone, and not
one has failed to return when he recovered.
Recently the night watchman was sick and
I had one of the hoys act In this capacity
for ten nights. He was surprised I should
trust him and he performed his duties as
well as the watchman. I would trust any
boy In the Institution.
"It takes some time to get the scenes of
the courtroom out of the boy's mind, but
the juvenile court law Is helping us along
those lines... Mothers who have visited the
school have left there with a different Idea,
of what It Is. The Industrial school Is not
a prison, but It Is a school and were It not
for the fact boya are sentenced to it It
would be filled with boys whose parents
would pay tuition.
"We have military companies as well
drilled as the students of any school, and
the officers of the companies are respon
sible for the conduct of the boys. They
make splendid disciplinarians. I am trying
to get the Idea out of the minds o( the boys
and their parents ' that the school Is a
prison. If I could eradicate that idea we
would be much more help to the boys."

NORTH PLATTE, Neb., Feb. U.-tSpe-cial.)
The spirit manirest elsewhere for
beet growers to organise has become rife
In Lincoln county snd Is being carried
into careful plans of organisation for the
beneilt of those who grow the vegetable.
A meeting has been CHlled at the court
house of Lincoln county. In this city, for
February 15 for the purpose of organising
a county association of beet growers. In
this county the agitation began at Suther
land and the conditions are ripe for a suc
cessful organization of all the beet growers
In the county.
The causes which bsve brought about
the state of, affairs are many grievances
which the growers have had with the
Standard Beet Sugar company, which con
tracted much land In this neighborhood In
the name of Heyward G. Leavltt. Leavltt
executed written contracts In this and
Keith and Dawson counties In which he
agreed with the beet growers that he would
construct at some point In Lincoln county
a sugar beet factory In time for the crop
of 130. This promise was made upon
condition that there should be approved
contracts to grow S.000 acres of beets and
sell same to Leavitt for IS per ton. The
acreage was secured and Leavitt made the
announcement that the factory would be
built. To a meeting of the Commercial
club of this city and of the beet growers
Mr. Leavltt Inst year stated that he would
have to hs.ve the factory begun In the
fall nf !WS If the same should be used
for the 1906 crop. The contracts obligated
the growers to furnish to Mr. Leavitt the
crop grown on a stated acreage for a
period of three years. Some time ago Mr.
Leavltt published notice In a local paper
here that he had heard threats of parties
going back on their obligations and warned
them that they had entered Into a solemn
agreement In writing to grow the beets
for three years and that they .would be
expected to comply with the written terms
of their agreement. Yesterday Mr. Leav
ltt authorised the publishing of a letter In
which he stated that he would not build
the factory which he had agreed In writing
to do In the same solemn Instrument which
was signed by the beet growers.

Since Coffee Left.
A Wisconsin lady says of coffee:
"From childhood 1 had been used to
drinking coffee, and grew very fond of it.
"Wheh in course of tlmo I began
to suffer from stomach and bowel trouoie,
with accompanying headaches, pains In the
chest and loss of appetite and nesli. 1 was
slow to suspect that cohec waa the cause.
My sister, who had used and knew the vir
tues of Postum Food' Coffee,' persuaded
me to try it. I gave up the old kind of
coffee with reluctance, thinking . that I
would never find a hot table drink that 1
would relish so well.
"I was therefore most agreeably
surprised to discover - that Postum
when properly made thoroughly boiled,
waa no very palatable. It proved to be a
rich, creamy, delicious beverage, sooth
ing and quieting to the nerves and
healthily Invigorating. I also found It

aged to continue Its use, until I am happy
to say, It landed me safely In WellvHI",
where I have been for three years and
where I propose to remain. I find It a
glorious and happy place to be In.
"I never before had such good health
as I have now. ' No trace of my former
ailment remain. I have put on weight
until 1 am almost "fleshy" and my com
plexion has resumed the bloom of my girl
"My mother lost her life (as I can sec
now) through coffee drinking. Her ail
ments were precisely the same as mine
were, but no one suspected at that time
that they were due to coffee, and she
continued tq use it, her health growing
steadily worse and worse till death put
an end to her sufferings. If I had only
known then what I do now, she might be
living to this day.
"My father was also a great coffee
drinker and tobacco user as well, and I
am sorry to say. too fond of liquor. Ha
lives with me and I have taught him to
drink Postum. with the result that
he usea much less tobacco and has entire

the Increase In the Cost
of Mining It.
PHI LAUK LPH ! A , Feb. ll.-Ueorge V.
Baer, president of the Heading company,
has issued a statement in relation to the
action of the house of representatives of
Pennsylvania last Friday In adopting a
resolution Instructing the attorney general
to bring court proceedings against anthra
cite coal carrying railroads If, upon in
quiry, he finds they are violating the con
stitution of the state. The resolution was
introduced by Keprenentatlvc Creary of Co
lumbia county, a democrat, and will come
before the senate tomorrow for action.
The resolution names the Pennsylvania
railroad, the Philadelphia Reading Rail
way company and the Delaware, Lacka
wanna & Western Railroad company.
President Baer's statement Is as follows:
First As to the rlxht of the Reading
company to own the stock of coal com
panies: The legislature seems to be tho
only law officers and lawmakers of the
state who are Ignorant of the provisions of
the constitution of 1S7X All the corpora
tions referred to obtained their rights and
franchises under charters granted prior to
the adaption of the new constitution. Tho
framers nf the constitution well knew that
these were vented rig In s. fully protected by
the law of the lund, and to prevent any
misapprehension the new constitution ex
plicitly declares ill article xvlll. section 2.
"And all rlghta. actions, prosecutions and
contracts shall continue as If this constitu
tion had not been adopted." und to still
further set forth their meaning they declare
In article xvl thut "all existing charters or
grants of special or exclusive privileges
under which a bona fide organization shall
not have taken place snd business been
commenced Irr good faitli of the adoption
of tills constitution, shall thereafter huve
The supreme court of the state has sev-
era l times passed upon the effects of the

und franchises and has uniformly held
that these constitutional limitations did not
apply to corporations existing prior to the
passage of the new constitution.

This is In form a cowardly statement
1 the falsity of which the public should
' know. Prior to 1WI the wages, as paid
by the Philadelphia & Reading Coal and
j Iron company, were fixed by a sliding
scale. In lfO, under the leadeiship of the

to compare prices and cost? in 1899 with
present costs and prices; the average
price per ton received by the coal and
iron company for its coal at the mines in
. 1MH was $1,713; the average price per ton
: received In 15 was This shows an
increase of 73.(1 cents per ton in seven
The increase in cost of mining of coal
was H3.Z cents per ton, which was made up
ns follows: Labor cost tier ton. 1899. $l.ti7;
labor cost per ton. 1905. $1,584. The cost or
materials increased from 31.4 cents In 1S19
to 43 cents in 1906. In other words, the in- ;
creased cost of production was: Ibor.
51.7 cents; material. 11.6 cents, or a total of
