school, hence the- will be strictly en
forced. A copy will be sent to each home
where it should be read carefully and
kept for reference. Special attention is
called to the tardiness,absence, and
standing required by the pnpils. In fact
all should be carefully studied. The
teacher has duties to perform also. No
tice these : and, if your child has been
disciplined, turn to the authority and
duty given him in the rules. The teach
ers, then, have authorities to whom they
are amenable, as well as the pupils are
held within proper bounds by the teacher.
Teachers as well as pupils will be ex
pected to perform their duties. Good re
sults in a school can be reached only when
everybody concerned attends properly to
his own business.
The principal is required to keep -office
hours." He has no office, hence he will
keep school-room hours. He will be
found in the room occupied by the High

soon as the matter can be collected he will
keep a full record of all pupils in the
various schools. This will include the
scholarship, deportment, attendance, time
of entry, etc. Any person wishing infor

is respectfully requested to call at the

also be made and it is to be hoped that all
who feel an interest in the schools and in
the name and welfare of our city general

The North. Platte Bridge.
By a notice elsewhere it will be seen
the commissioners have decided to sub
mit the question of voting bonds to
build a bridge across the North Platte
river at the approaching general election.
This is a scheme The Tricot: has al
ways advocated, and thought and still
thinks the question should have been sub
mitted at a special election some time
ago when it would not have been an'taco
nized bv other interests and when everv
vote cast would have been upon the sub
ject The necessity of such a bridge is
too apparent to need special argument in
its favor. The railroad bridge which has
been the only means of crossing the river
since the settlement of the country, aside
from the great danger to life and property,
is not in the right location, and costs near
ly as much in the shape of rent as if
owned by the county. Buv this is not
the great objection. Every team that
crosses is in danger of passing trains, es
pecially in the night; so much so that it
frequently happens that persons living on
the opposite side will not remain in town
after dark, even though it be a matter of
considerable importance that detains
them. As the. time for discussion is short
we hope the friends of the measure will
get down to business and see that the in
different voter does not cast a negative
vote by leaving both "for" and "against"
on the ticket

Petition for a New Precinct.
The citizens of O'Fallons precinct north

probably to avoid being held for the

precinct to-day, in case they earn. To

in the loss of winter range but in the
