After reading i of minutes of the previous meeting j the secretary was asked to state reasons why Annie Eshelman was admitted free to our schools. It was shown that her residence was Lestablisbed here, but the census failed to get her name. The secre tary's report was read and ordered placed on the minutes. A number of bills were then al lowed, after which the secretary was instructed to draw up a warrant for S25 for six months rent to the 2vorth Platte Telephone company; also one for six months rent for the Unitarian hall. The resignation of Miss Thoel ecke was read and accepted. Miss Lizzie Burke was chosen to fill the vacancy caused by the former's res ignation and her salarv was fixed at $50 per month. The secretary was instructed to procure six microscopes for the high school at a cost of 516 each. In his report Superintendent Ebright said "it is a pleasure to me to be abe to report such good re sults as are everywhere apparent in our schools so far during- the ear. I am sorry that I cannot speak in so laudable terms of all of our school equipments. It is a tact that two of the rooms that we have rented for school rooms are not fit rooms in which to have these young boys and girls for six hours a day and require them to use books. We are doing a vast amount of injury to these young folks and I think that it ought not be done."

The South Omaha Sun. published at the seat of Nebraska's fireat live stock market states that more mon ey has been placed on cattle ia the state this season than ever before in the history of the business. The packing industry at South Omaha is makinjr wondertu' strides and will doubtless be able to handle all the stock that can be furnished from this territory. Kearney Hub. A colony of Nebraska people left on the Burlington Friday afternoon for Albany. Oregon. The party was composed of the families of R. R. Jor dan. Minden: J. Mc Elbenv. Hild-, reth: and Peter and John Peterson, of Bloomington. There were nine teen persons in the party, and they took aspecial car out of Kearney. , Col. Magner stated that this was a : vonnT colonv he was startiasr west. Knearney Hub. : Rev. J. C Lance brought us in a sample ot Nebraska grown cotton one day this week. It was some j which he grew at his home from ' seed sent from Oklahoma. It was planted along in corn planting sea son and did notall fully nature betore frost. One of the samples brought us is fast to the pulp as it grew and the bulp is spread open from being frosted. Another had been picked from the pulp and apparently had matured. It is very soft and much finer and nicer than the ordinary cotton. Leigh World. There are tricks in all profes sions, that of the hobo included. In South Omaha where Tree lunches don't go and "hand outs" are hard to get. the knights of the road have become desperate and organ ized themselves into a walking em ployment agency to fieece the un sophisticated who are on their up pers" and gladlv part company with thier last dollar ia expecta tion of securing work. Experience comes high but we must have it. A couple of Weary Willies, tired, hungry and cold, broke into the Evans school house east of Grand Island and took possession tor the night. They found a stove and plenty of fuel in the building and a coffee pot that was used by the school as an object for the drawing lesson. "As thev hadi brought coffee and meats with them the coffee pot was used for the pur pose that it was originally intended, and a plate left in the room by some of the pupi's came into good play as a frying pan. The boys must have thought thev had struck it rich, and as they committed no fur ther depredation than demolishing thelock on the door and burning a bushel or so of coal the school board does not begrudge them the night's lodging. A young sprig of a fellow who ! goes by the name of Siiver.and who has been dra wing 55 a day for fool- ing around with the state investi gation committee, has made a re port of the condition of the books at the Kearney Reform school and forjjot the combination. Io one has yet been found who can unravel the report, although a number 1 have made liie attempt. GIVES A STTHBEISZ PASTY.

"By all means borrow all the trouble you can. If you can't borrow enough by ' day sit up nights and set some one to heipyt.u.

Always be on the lookout for some- i thing to happen. Full half the trouoies of this life are purely imaginary and the , more you worry the lireiier wih vour imagination become, There are th us ands of people m this worid ivntmu.ii.y looking for trouble. Something terrible is continually staring at tbein m sue fu ture. They expect the cholera every yean they look constantly for small -pox: they shrink up and shudder at the j thought of a comet: they expect t te struck by lightning every time a c oud pusses: they never go to bed without ex pecting to he murdered before morning; i they are constantly looking out for tits i of iieknss. and believing that an ounre of prevention is worth a pound of cure, they employ preventatives and treir houses smell of otioos and camphor, hartshorn and whiskey in about equal parts. They do not seem to reaiiz that most of the troubles we have are those we never expected or dreamed of. What we are confidently expecting to come, seldom dees coae, and the heaviest . blows fall npon us when we are most at ouf easa, Geo. Snyder and C. H.
