We predict a successful term of school

once in the district referred to and
found it a very pleasant school to work

of dime novels and a number of letters

naming the scholars on the part of the
children is what the patrons complain
of. We want a good moral exemplary
teacher for our children, one who will
not teach them they are sneaks and
thieves but they were born into the
world to be men and women and that
they are here for some good. All chil
dren are mischievous more or leBS and
should be furnished with additional work
on the part of the teacher during school
hours. But whenever the pupils find
out that a teacher is incompetent to in
struct and impart knowledge and not
capable of controlling their vile temper
much less their tongue, there is not
much good to be derived irom such
proceedings and we will very readily
see the evil effect of subjecting our
children to the care of such teachers
much to the displeasure of their more
disciplined mothers. We want our
children so instructed that when they
arrive at the ripe age of eighteen they
will be capable of conducting them
selves as ladies and gentlemen without
the aid of ox whips. We know of no
such a woman in our neighborhood as
our sister describes. All seem to be
contented and happy attending to their
own business and profiting by so doing.

The meetings in the Biggs Block have
been largely attended the past week,
the house being packed several evenings.
On Sunday afternoon over six hundred
men were at the service for men only,
and listened to a plain, pointed address
on the sins of profanity, drink and lm*
purity. At the close many raised their
hand for prayer, and a large number
gave the hand to Mr. Sunday, expres
sive oi endorsement of what be had
said, and desire to improve their own
lives. A deep spirit of personal inter
est pervades the community, and many
are thinking Beriously of the claims of
religion upon them. At the meeting on
Tuesday evening an unexpected turn
was taken, when upwards of forty per
sons, many of them leaders in the so
cial lite of the city, pledged themselves
to abandon card playing, and to put
out of their lives whatever might be a
hindrance to others. Up to present
about thirty have come forward pro
fessing conversion, and many others
have shown much spirit of conviction
that it is expected that, from this time
forward, many conversions will occur.
The collections have been of such degree
of liberality that it is expected that by
next Sunday night enough will be in
hands that it will not be necessarv to
continue them.

Tribute to I. Hainer.
Ignace Hainer was born in Hungary,
November 15, 1818. He receiyed the
best education afforded by the Univers
ities of his county and became special
ly proficient in history and languages.
following the traditions of a long
ancestral line he entered upon the pro
fession of law in the ldnd where the at-
torney takes no cause unless thoroughly
convinced of its justice—where fees and
onWactS~"lo? cdRj^cnsatidUfca Jirg un
known and the worthy counsel recgfvmr
the reward of an honorian from his ap
preciative client.
He continued the practice of law with
signal ability, haying in his charge many
large interests, until the great revolution
of 1848 in his native land called him to
arms with Kossuth and his compatriots.
Their struggle for liberty wonderful
ly excited the admiration and sympathy
of the civilized world, but the small
band of heroic Magyars, poorly equip
ped and armed could not successfully
maintain the unequal contest'against
the combined forces of Austria and
Russia and after a fruitless struggle of
two years the patriots were overpower
ed and Hungary, broken and bleeding,
lay at the conqueror's feet.
Though not formally exiled with
others, many of whom took a less con
spicuous part in that eventful struggle,
Mr. Hainer could not endure the op-
ression against which he had BO gal
and-in 1854 emigrated
to America living for a year at Chicago
and in 1855 made his way over the then
trackless prairie, at a time when the
slow ox team performed the work now
swiftly done by steam and rail, and took
up his home at the Hungarian Colony
of New Buda. Of that remarkable col
ony so well known to the older resi
dents of Iowa only Francis Varga and
Stephen Radnich remain.
Here, with his family unused to the
trials, privation, suffering and hardship
incident to frontier life, in that confi
dence and hopefulness characteristic of
his people that in this land of the free,
opportunities would open to his chil
dren denied to the father in the old
world, he began at middle age a new
life and became a part of that force
which transformed a wilderness into a
blooming garden.
In 1856 there came unexpectedly and
he acceped the position of Professor of
Modern Languages in the State Uni
versity of Missouri and served in that
capacity until the breaking out of the
Civil War, when on account of his un
compromising loyalty to the land of his
adoption, he was ousted by the confed
erates—Gen. Sterling, Price, and others
then in control of the institution.
He then returned with his family to
the neighborhood of New Buda, where
he continued to reside until his death
which occurred on March 2tt, 1900, at
the ripe age of 81 years, 4 months and
11 days.
He was married in 1846 to Ada Bartos
who survives him. There was born to
them 9 children, of these Laura the
eldest was married to Stephen Radnich
of Davis City, Iowa, and died in 1871.
Victor, a son died four years ago in
Seven children are still alive. These
in the order of their ages are: Eugene
J. of Aurora, Neb., Mrs. Ada Blaise -of
Perry, Okla„ Julius C. of St. Louis,
Mo., Bayard T. of Perry, Okla., Mrs.
Hermine H. Gabel of Aurora, Neb.,
Mrs. Norma Beach of Geneva, N. Y. and
Mrs. Vesta Chase of St. Louis, Mo.
The end came without a moment's
warning. In apparant excellent health
and usual vigor, on his way to the vil
lage, he was stricken with apoplexy and
died withdut a.struggle or pain.
He was an exemplary citizen and a
good man. Highly educated—a lin
guist whose equal is seldom met—a rare
character whose rugged virtues made
his name a synonym for honesty, re
liability and the highest type of patriot
ism and citizenship Those who knew

subjret to.more intense weariness, than

the system, revitalize the nerves and
give strength and energy.
