Robbed of Fur Coat
"3ee It's cold." chattered a shivering

Mlxteenth street Friday evening. While
thus muttering his lamentations he spied
a defenceless dummy standing In front of
t. Fonoraa's store at No. 609. and a
happy thought struck him. The dummy
didn't need the l fur coat It Wore, so
the shivering ragamuffin took advantage
of tha situation, leaving the dummy to
the merry of tha boreal blasts which
whistled through his slats. 1 Ftinoran was
furious when he reported the theft to the

but it has proven to be a very wholesome

but It would take too much space.
Another good book for tha singer to
get Is "Correct Principles of Classical
Hinging," by Max Iletnrlch. (Lothrop, Lee

teacher la worth the price of the book,
and there are many musical Illustrations

This is specially true of the Russian

Another book on singing (and when will
they cease?) Is from the pen of W. E.
llaslam with a prefatory note signed by
him at Paris, July, l'.Ul. The publlaher
Is U. Kchlrmer, New York. Mr. Ilaslam's
convenient little book Is dedicated to
his pupils, onl it Is entitled "Style In
Singing." He gives soma very sound ad
vice and says many things 'which the
ambitious young singer will Ignore and
with the usual results! He aaya, "The
vocal education of many students Is now
adays hurried through with a hssto that
la, eoualUd only by the celerity with
which such anpirants tor lyric honors
return to obscurity."
There Is so nothing to be thankful for
In the last section. These meteors do

another would-be singer Is disappointed
and aggrieved because the world did uot

the affair to bad luck, or clln-.ale, and
never thinks of connecting the "hurried

with the "return to obscurity."

We ofttimea hear a singer make this re
mark: "Well. If I can't tell how I sing.
If I can't hear my own voice, what's the
use of studying?" The following remark
of Mr. Hallam will show that he has met
such people, for he ssys: 'The singer
combines In himself both instrument and
performer; therefore he rarely. If ever,
hears himself quit as doea an
other person. 1,'ntll' possessed of the
ripened judgment gained by experience,
he would do well to bo guided In this
matter by one who, to the knowledge
required, adds taeta and discernment."

means a good deal of work where It la
carried out with faithfulness and dili
gence. Even In the case of schools giving
three or four years of high school work,
the county superintendent exercises a cer
tain amount of supervision, since all
teachers are either certified from that
office or their certificates are passed on
by the county superintendent.
In addition to tha continual supervlulon
and liiMpcctlon of schools, the county su
perintendent la charged with the duty of
organising new districts and making any
necessary changes in the boundaries of
established districts. Decisions of legal
questions where dispute arises among
school directors Is alio the task of the
superintendent, and some of the questions
raised are of ft character to puxile the
beat poised inlnd. In the planning and
erection of new buildings the county su
perintendents nowadaya have a, large
hand, so that they shall be well arranged,
sanitary and of approved type.
One of the big problems confronting the
rural school dlxtrlcts or Nebraska today
is that of securing model rural schools.
In ft recent Issue the Nebraska Teacher,
an educational journal, says: "Nebraska
has done much during the last decade to
Improve thn rural school houses of the
state, but much yet remains to be ac
complished." It presents pictures and
drawings of a model school, erected In
Missouri, and continues: "It this build
ing, with the equipment described, can
be reproduced In Nebraska for 2,400, or
even H.000, It should be Immediately du
plicated in hundreds of districts all over
the state. With changing rondttlons In
rural life and its social problems, the
question confronts us, not whether we
can afford to adopt such plana, but can
we afford not to adopt them?" In the
settlement of this vital problem the
women superintendents will necessarily
have a large hand. Those familiar with
their work believe they j will not fall be
hind the men superintendents In their
lively Interest and helpful suggestions,
nor In their Influence with the school
boards and school patrons who must sup
ply the funds for the better school house.
That the one-room country school can. In
Its own community and In Its own way,
do quite as much aa the carefully organ
ised city school is now generally conceded
among advanced thinkers In the profes
sion. They insist the building for school
purposes Is worthy of careful planning,
with the hygienic features considered
necessary to modern life; and that, 'in
addition to teachers of the best training,
the school must be provided with up-to-date
furniture and equipment. Thus tt
will be seen the county superintendents
who' study their profession and grasp
their opportunities can have a, Very large
hand In the social uplift that Is radiating
from good rural schools.

There is no way of making lasting friends like u Making Good"; and
Dr. Pierce's medicines well exemplify this, and their friends, after more
than four decades of popularity are numbered by the hundreds of thou
sands., They have "made good" and they have not made drunkards.
A good, honest square-deal medicine of known composition is
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.
It still enjoys an immense sale, while most of the preparations that have come into promi
nence in the earlier period of its popularity have " gone by the board " and are never
more heard of There must be some reason for this long-time popularity and that is
to be found in its superior merits. When once given a fair trial for weak stomach, or
for liver and blood aifectiorft., its superior curative qualities are soon manifest; hence it
has survived and grown in popular favor, while scores of less meritorious articles have
suddenly flashed into favor for a brief period and then been as soon forgotten.
For a torpid liver with Its attendant Indigestion, dyspepsia,
headache, perhaps dizziness, foul breath, nasty coated tongue,
with bitter taste, loss of appetite, with distress after eating,
nervousness and debility, nothing Is as good as Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery.
It's an honest, square-deal medicine with all its ingredients printed on bottle-wrapper
