School Directory for
the County is Out
The Educational Directory of Douglas
county has just been issued by Cdunty
Superintendent' Yoder. It ' contains In
formation In reference to the schools
outside of Omaha and South Omaha.
This directory gives the names of teach
ers and school board members as well
as certain other data. Last year the
enrollment In tho county schools was
3,998, a slight Increase over preceding
years. The number remaining In both
rural and town schools until the eighth
grade work, is completed Is Increasing
rapidly. The high school attendance has
Increased remarkably during the last
four or five years. A few years ago It
was scarcely more than '00. Last year
the high school enrollment was 209 and
the attendance at the beginning of this
year is 301. In addition, a number of
pupils of high school grade are taking
preparatory, agricultural, and other
courses In various schools.
The Dundee school and the Q Street
school (west of South Omaha) are the
largest of the schools that do not carry
work above the eighth grade. This Is
because of their proximity to the high
schools of Omaha and South Omaha.
Dundee has this year added an excellent
kindergarten, and the Q Street school
is also growing, rapidly and doing good
to Big Wheat Crop
After having made an extended tour
through the fall wheat sections of south
ern Nebraska and Kansas W. W. John
ton, assistant general freight agent of
the Burlington, is home, and makes a
most, optimistic report relative to con
ditions for next year.
All through northern Kansas there haa
been an abundance of rain during the lajt
six weeks. The ground is in splendid con
dition and the acreage of wheat Is large,
even great tr than last year. The groin
Is ail up and much of it six inches high,
covering the ground like a mat and of a
dark green color.
Throughout southern Nebraska condi
tions are even more promising than in
Kansas, This Is especially true In tua
valley of the Big and Uttle Blue river.
There, on account of the frequent and
heavy rains, the ground is thoroughly
soaked to a depth of ten to twelve Inohes,
The result of this is, according to Mr.
Johnson, that the outlook for a big wheat
crop next season la the best In many
