A VISIT TO OUR SCHOOLS.
We Sccepted an invitation from
Prof. Pierson. our good looking and
gooii natured County Superintendent
of Schools, to visit, with him. our
city schools on" day last week. Tin
pleasure, aud we may say satisfaction,
of accompanying so important and
clever a functionary , engaged in tbe
administration of local- government,
was no small inducement to cause u
to droo the mu-ty volumes of subtle
and crafty law, and share the hospi
tality which he foreshadowed Had
we followed the example of our friend
we should doubtle.-s have assumed a
personal appearance which would ap
proximate a near to the irresistable
as the pnrsimony of nature was sus
ceptible of artificial improvement.
But desiring rattier to do honor to the
school ma'am's Cie-ar. and being nat
urally of an undemonstrative dispo
sition we generously contributed our
assistance tn render our Granger Su
perintendent st-lf-atlfled that he
was proentahle. We need not de
scribe the proce.-s of extirpating the
insignia of Patron honors, -'hay
seed," or of tin evolutions necessary
to supersede firmly acquired ru-tie
habits, all of which w.-is accomplish
ed by sundry experiments in the laws
of refracted light.
We first gained admittance to the
room in which Prof. Rich has o suc
cessfully reduced to system anil har
mony the working force of the high
er grade. The Profes-or seems to be
in peculiar confidence with every in
dividual pupil, ami ha :i manner of
inducing independent thought- ami
self-in vestigation which we have nev
er seen surpassed in fhe school room.
A class in Natural Pbilo-ophy was
having a hearing and as the subject
was refraction of the ray-of light, we
could not fail to observe tbe delight
which our companion experienced at
thin sudden coincidence with his re
We stepped into Miss Ahernethy's
room just in time to witness tbe clos
ing of a recitation in Geography. We
were gratified to learn that Miss Ab
ernethy is meeting with much sne
eess. in her department. We were
struck with admiration at the suavity
and grace with which our friend bow
ed himself out of tiiU room, and re
solved at once that he needed no more
of our tutorship.
Qur next call was In the room of
Miss Mary L. Osborne. We were
her shown some fine specimens of
composition and map-drawings and
were pleased with the neatness and
me hod which, M.iss Osborne caused to
be observed in the school work. The
Professor seeming to desire a confi
dential interview with the instruct
ress we remembered our early teach
ings and retired into communion with
ourself until the Professor announced
his readiness to proceed to another
field of operations.
Miss Vesta Noyes' department is,
perhaps, the most difficult to discip
line in the whole building, but her
executive ability is evidently equal to
lie emergency. We confess we heard

of the State of Nebraska, aud by sev
eral of our own citizens.
At this meeting it was resolved lo

This particular Ann Eliza was
Brigham Young's 19th wife. Some
months ago she forsook the harem of
the Mormon mogul of Salt Lake, and
went East on a lecturing tour. Her
topic was the showing up of that pe
culiar religion, its general uglinesH.
the miseries connected with it, and
how the old Mormon priest managed
to "come it" over Ann Eliza. an unso
phisticated, unsuspecting attractive
country maiden. In order to make
things pleasant and succe.sful Ann
Eliza considered it busine-s like to
have a good looking gentlemonly a
gent to accompany her. This agent
answered promptly, always, when
Ann Eliza called him. to the name of
Maj Pond. At Chicago. Ann Eliza
the fair Iecturess made a good impres
sion, as she did wherever she lectur
ed ; and the Young Men's Christian
association, whose mission on earth U
to prevent the circulation of obscene
literary things, rendered her all the
assistance they could. Good-looking
women traveling around the country
in company with handsome agents,
should be very cautious in their am
ours lest they be caught, exposed, and
their good name and occupation short
lived. Ajiu Eliza and her gallant
agent it appears, were not so cautious
as our advice is intended to indicate.
The withering tongue of scandal has
been let louse after tbe fair Iecturess
aul she is now looked upon in an
light but that reflected by unsuspic
ious and virtuous lamps.
Her exposure conies through the
Chicago Times from which we extract

Thia resolution endorsing the Gran

If this act places me "with my baCK

ces two-thirds of Nemaba county,
who are Republicans, in the same po
sition. , ...
This would indicate, Mr. .Editor,
that there were very few Republicans
left in old Nemaha, who only four
months ago elected a larger portion of
the county ticket than they have, be
fore for several years, cud the Gran
gers were nearly as numercu3as now.
Under what other circumstances
ban the present would my action in
the matter have been more consist
ent ? Some five years ago I went to
Wyoming as Marshal. At that time
I purchased my farm in Nemaha
county, and began to improve it.
When I was relieved a. Marshal some
two years ago. I came with my fami

a member Is there anything very
inconsistent in this?
The e was a time. Mr. Editor,
when tbe crack of ihe party whip was
very effective. When members of a
narty werp expected to. and as a ma
jority did endorse all and everything
their party newspaper advocated; but
that time has passed. There was a
time when the farmer. like the Gnese,
waited year after year for the pluck

ped without even an effrl to prevent
tlip injustice. That lime has also
parked ;' there is evidently a mistaken
idea relative to tbr Grange organiza
tion,. Perhaps it is not as fully ex
plained as it" should be. While the
Grange does prohibit polities within
its gatei. there is nothing in the obli
gation a member takes to prevent hi-
acting in politics just as he pleases.

At a meeting of the Merchants

Held last night, the following resplu
tions were passed :.
Wheueas, Reports having been cir
culated throughout the country, that
Nebraska is in danger of an Indian
war. and attacks upon its settlements,
on account of difficulties occurring at
Indian airencies located hundreds of
miles from the extreme western bor
ders of the State, and exaggerated
statements have been made hich are
calculated to inflict great damage
upon its interests therefore,
Resolved, That the murder of Robr
inson, Coleman and Appleton, near
Red Cloud Agency, in the Territory
of Dakota, grew out of local difficul
ties at that agency, and involved not
the slightest indication of a general
uprising of Indian tribes; that from
the best information obtainable no
hostile Sionx have contemplated or
made any movements looking to at
tacks upon tbe settlements in Nebras
ka or Wyoming; that official reports
from Col. Smith, commandant at Ft.
Laramie, confirmed by thoeof Agent
Saville, show that Red Cloud and a
large majority of the Indians at vari
ous acrencies are guarding themselves
neainst hostile Indians, which proves
their friendly disposition beyond cav
il or disnute.
Resolved. That it is thp opinion of
this club thnt Congress would do a
wise act to transfer the ex dnnive con
trol and enndnct of the Indian affairs
to the department of war.

no political significance in this, or
anything to warrant the assertion
that the Republican or Democratic
Grangers of Nemaha county have
turned their backs upon their old par
Just now. Mr. Editor, there a,re too
many Republicans standing side ways
to decide, very precisely, who will
rintU face" when the party's order is
given- Tjiere is a good deal of watch
ing and much praying, and they all
seem alike to be saying the Puritan's
prayer: "Oh, Lord, keep us from de
snising our rulers, and. oh. Lord,
keep them from acting so we can't
help it!" I think if they could be
satisfied that the last part of their
prayer had been answered favorably,
they would very soon stop repeating
the first part. The Republican party,
like the wheat in tbe stuck, has been
passing through a severe sweat. It is
charged that the last four years' crops
were badly damaged by smut, rust
and foul seed, and that last year's
crop, in particular, was very scabby.
The threshing season Is about over,
and the people, including the Grang
eis. (individually) are anxiously wail
ing to see the "clean up " If they
are satisfied with the yiebi. and the
chances are that the smutty, rusty
and scabby have been separated from
the good, and that it is reasonably
clean of foul seeds, they will undoubt
edly favor potting in another crop,
and it behooves those entrusted with
the party "vibrators" and separators
to labor dilligently and make as good
a showing as possible. It U not the
principles of the Republican party
that are being conderpued ? 5t 3 the
party leaders for not living up to and
carrying out those prlpciples. The
people are demanding reforms the

employ to represent them, now it is

fact Is the facilities for handling grain

as canals are opperated the railroads
cannot combine to extort. But to
make them effective, they must, ev
