among the number.
For the first time since the normal
opened six years ago. the model schools
have an opportunity to expand Tnn
addition of another teacher and the ad
ditional room have added greatly to the
convenience and effectiveness of the
work. Miss Cora O'Connell has charge
of tbe model hleh school, whose at

number of eighth grada graduates from
the country schools Miss Edna Colvln,
formerly of Nebraska, hut recently of the
Denver cltv schools, has charge of the
seventh and eighth grades, formerly pre
sided over by Miss O'Connell.
The faculty s greatly pleased with the
fine enrollment In Junior and senior
classes A large number of the students
are graduates of twelfth grade high
school, while many have several years
experience to their credit TTie maturity
of the student body Is a subject of re
mark bv the many -lsltors who have
called. The training class Is very small,
as an effort has been made to assign
the students to regular classes leading
to the life certificate. Instead of taking
the training course, many of the stu
dents, who desire certificates at the end
of the year are taking the Junior work.
The students are taking an Interest In
all of the. organizations, such as debating
societies, , Christian associations, orches

club, choruses, etc. The Catholic stu
dents' club, the Toung Men's Christian
association and the Toung Women's
Christian association, have all held suc

results this year. Prof. Porter has an

Educator Tells War So Few at Tnem
Die of Old Age.
Public sehool teaching, according to
Secretary Lyman A. Best, of tho New
York Board of Retirement, is a hazard
ous occupation, taking rank in mortality
with that of the soldier, police man and
fireman. Mr. Best, in his annual report
Ju&t out, seeks to correct the idea that
because teachers have short hours and
long vacations their work Is easy. He
"Thirty-nine per oent of the teachers,
who 'have been retired In the last six
years were suffering from nervous break
downs, while a considerable number had
'Some years ago, when the agitation
for teachers' annuities waa Just begin
ning, it was difficult to convince legis
lators and school board members that our
cause had merit. We were told that It
was all very well to establish pensions,
annuities for soldiers, policemen and
firemen, because tholr occupation were
extra-hazardous, and they often gave up
their lives for the community which
they saved; but as for the teaohera, their
work was easy, thslr hours short, their
vacations long and they made no sac
'Gradually this has all been ' changed
as the great work of the teachers be
came more full' recognized, as the sac
rifices In nervous and physical energy
made by the teachers In their most
arduous work for tho youth of our land
became more frilly understood. Germany
was one of the first countries to recog
nize officially that teachers, of all public
officers, were deserving of the highest
consideration, as they were the most
likely to sacrifice their health in the dle
ehsrge of their duties. Many observing
educators have called attention to the
relatively large number of physical
wrecks furnished by the teaching pro
fession." Children coming to school from homes
where contagious diseases are housed,
and. unsanitary school rooms. Mr. Best
says, are responsible for much of the
danger to which a teacher is subject.
Of the 1,492 teachers retired to Feb
ruary 1, mi. 315 have died, Mr. Beat
says, about 45 per cent of the men and
19 per cent of the women. An enumera
tion of the causes of death would In
dicate most graphically, he believes, the
hasards of the teacher's profession.
"Can any other occupation," he con
cludes, ' show less than 84 per cent of
deaths from old age? Is any other oc
cupation more hazardous?"

Mayor Aaalnet Merarev.
The mavor acting In eonlunetlon with
the business men and cltv officials yes
terdav declared formally against the

before any further co-operation was
shown by the uptown clubs.
Councilman Jack Walters of I'nlon
stork t arris said he was against ant
merger that would amount to a promis
sory note on the part of Omaha. "When
Omaha and the annexationists can show
me In black and white a binding agree
ment, good in law, that we will have
the proper representation In the counsels
of the greater city, then I will vote for
annexation." said Mr. Walters. "I am
here twenty-five years and I have my
home here. I can not now stand to see
this section of the city made a moral
dumping ground for our uptown neigh

will make us partners to a pact and not
beneficiaries of its arbitrary will, then
I am for annexation and not before."

Mayor Tralnor after having considered
plans for conducting an anti-merger
campaign made a public statement of
the platform on which the opposition to
the merger was baaed. He also ap

Hog buyers at the local market find
that with a per cent crop Increase
over the corresponding months of last
year, hogs are lighter In weight from
10 to 20 per cent and selling at S cents
with the probabilities that the price will
go lower by February.
The old crop la cleaned up and It Is
generally admitted among the buyers that
the new cro.i will be a 30 per oent In
crease for the season of 1211-12 over the
setaon of 1610-11 to date.
Owing to the dry weather and bare
pastures of the last season the new
crop will not make the growth expected
of them and the October, November and
December hogs will be 10 to 20 per cent
lighter than In the corresponding season
a year ago.
With corn going higher, an early mar
keting of those animals may be expected
for the rearon that raisers will not care
to fead high price corn to 6-cent hogs
