After six years of efficient service as
Sheriff of Lincoln county, D. A. Baker
steps down and out. That ho has well
performed the duties of the office is
admitted by all, and that he was not
successful in the last election was due to
the action of a few voters who refused
to support him simply because they held
the opinion that ho had held the office
as long as any one man was entitled to it
No man in the county has a largor circle
of warm personal friends than Mr. Baker
and they will wish him success in what
ever business ho may decide to engage
in the future.
A citizen suggests that in case tho
proposition to issue bonds for electric
lights is re-submitted to the voters at
the coming spring election that the
interest be placed at seven per cent in
stead of six, in order that the bonds may
sell more readily. We are of the opinion
that six percent interest is all that North
Platte can afford to pay on electric light
bonds, and especially when it is an open
question as to whether the plant can bo
made self sustaining. If tho democrats
are not liars not all are by next sum
mor President Grover and his congress
will have corked up the panic and six
per cent bonds will find a ready market.

From tho Perry, (Iowa) Advertiser wo
clip tho following account of tho acci
dent which befell Will Ginn, formerly of
this city on Thursday of laEt week:
Brakeman Will Ginn received injuries
Thursdnywhicb arc likely to prove fatal.
Tho accident occurcd near Tama. He
had gone out on the local No. 92, Con
ductor Holmes, in the morning. The
train had made the stop for the North
western crossing a mile west of Tama.
It gave a sudden jerk in starting, and
Ginn, who was just in the act of stepping
from tho top of one car to another, was
'thrown between them. The cruel wheels
'caught him and ho was" frightfully
mangled. Both arms were crushed, and
the right foot. He was taken to Tama,
and the surgeons amputated the left
arm at the shoulder, tho right arm near
the elbow and the right leg abovo the
ankle. How any man could sustain
Such injuries and live at all is a mystery.
Hjs wire went to Tama on No. 2 and his
father followed on No. 4. Tho latter
returned yesterday morning, and reports
Will as then alive and -conscious, but the
reaction had not yet set in, and the
physicians held out no hope of his re
covery. Will was an 'experienced and careful
railroad man, sober and reliable. He
was for a long timo conductor on the
.Union Pacific, but roturned to this city
and the Milwaukee a year or so ago.
He is held in high esteem, and his
friends will hope, while there is a chance

It is strange that so few realize the
astonishing amount of work which the
twelve and sixteen-foot Aermotor wind
mills will do in irrigating land. In Ne
braska and many other states there are
thousands of acres of land which now
practically produce nothing. This land
is immensely rich and fertile, and if
water can begot upon it will produce
enormous crops, but without water tho
farmer is absolutely at the mercy of the
weather. A great many acres are gen
erally put under cultivation by each
farmer, and, if the season is good and
favored with abundant rain, the crops
will be heavy, but too often, even for
two or three years in succession, the
crops will prove almost a total failure.
How many farmers, and especially those
who live near the small cities, would be
independently rich if they had from ten
to twonty acres of land bountifully sup
plied with water!
A good pump will deliver fully 10,000
gallons of water per hour through a six
inch pipe from a shallow well, or 1,000
gallons per hour from a well where the
water is to bo lifted about 200 feet. The
question is often asked, bow much water
does it take to irrigate an acre of land?
Twenty-seven thousand gallons will
cover one acre of land one inch deep. In
a great many localities water may be
discharged into what is called a ground
tank or reservoir. The mill may pump
into such a tank for months before the
water is noeded, and thus store an enor
mous quantity of water. It is not abso
lutely essential td.have a tank cither of
wood or the kind mentioned above; but
better results can be obtained, as it is
much moro desirable to store up tho
water and use it when it is needed.

Mas. annie a uhcrch,
Mrs. Mart C. Patterson,
Tho State Teachers' Association.
The state teachers convention held
at Lincoln December 27tb, 28th aud 29th
was one long to be remembered by those
in attendance. The crowd commenced
to come in as early as Wednesday morn
ing, and by three o'clock in the after
noon, tho hour sot for the assembling
of tho teachers in the university hall
at tho various round tables, almost all
tho representative delegates from all
parts of this state and many adjoining
states had arrived. Presidents of col
leges, county superintendents, city su
perintendents and principals and country
teachers were there to share in tho ben
efits of this annual gathering.
The convention was formally opened
by an invocation by Chancellor Canfield
in the university chapel at 7:30 o'clock
Wednesday evening. A well prepared
entertainment was given consisting of
music by tho university orchestra, ste
reoptican views and an interesting and
well prepared paper by Supt J. J. Mo
rey, of Kearney, on "photography in the
high school," which was an address full
of inspiration, showing the uses to bo
derived in teaching this branch in tho
high school. Ho said among many
other things that it was not only a cul
tivator of art in the pupil, but that in
the study of the sciences, such as bota
ny and zoology, many facts could be
preserved while out in the field of inves
tigation that could not be were it not
for the camera. At tho close of the
programme a reception was given by the
committee in Grant Memorial Hall. A
large number were present to be intro-
duced andalL seeped .freehand easy to
become acquainted. Next in import
ance on the programme was a paper by
Supt E. N. Brown, of Hastings, dis
cussed by Supt. F. A. Fitzpatrick, of
Omaha. Tho subject of this paper was
departmental teaching. From the dis
cussion that followed wo conclude that
it will not be many years until in all our
second class city high schools specialists
will bo employed to teach special sub
jects, viz: ono teacher to instruct in
mathematics, another for tho classics,
and so on. Of course this means a
greator expense to keep up the schools,
but it will raise the standard of our
schools to a much higher level and in
crease the ability of the average high
school graduate. Mr. Brown argued
for general departmental teaching
throughout all grades of our public
schools, but Mr. Fitzpatrick limited it
to tho high school, using for his argu
ment against a general application of
this plan the fact that it would tend to
disintegrate or eoparato tho city
schools as a whole.
Music was given throughout the pro
gramme by tho York high school quar
tette which reflected well upon the
teaching of music in tho high school.
An able address was given by Pres. G.
Stanley Hall, of Worcester, Mass , on
the Study of Children. He discussed
child nature from birth to manhood and
womanhood. He said that it was violat
ing a law of pedagogy to suppress or
constrain the selfish nature of a child,
that all are born selfish and the only
way to overcome this is by training the
child in our schools until his own reason
tells him how to do better. Dr. Hall
spoke again to an overflow meeting as
the last participant on the programme
at the LanBing opera house Friday ev
ening. Chancellor Canfield, of the state
university, was elected president of tho
association to convene next time at Lin
coln. F. L. Meredith.

The dance at tho Wallace House on
New Year's night was a decided social
