The little infant son of Mr. and Mrs.
M. Brennan, of Dewey, died Tuesday
morning and was buried up here yester
day. The little child was born on Aug
ust 10th, last, and was not at all well
to the time of its death. The heartfelt
sympathy of this entire community goes
out to the grieving parents.
Now that the county commissioners
have been in session and canvassed the
votes cast at the primary election and
made known who the different

it not be well for you to consider the ad
visability of placing an announcement of
your candidacy in The Nugget.
On last Friday Governor Brady filed a
sworn statement of his personal expense
account with the secretary of state and
shows that the governor expended a total
of $616.25, or that he is on the safe side
by a margin of $133.75. The expense
count, which is in detail, covers a period
from February 28, 1910, to the present
In more than forty Kansas counties
women hold the office of superintendent
of schools, and in twenty-four other
counties there are women candidates for
the office. Enough of these are likely to
be elected in November to place the
schools, in a majority of the counties,
under the direction of women. If any
one should then ask the famous question,
"What is the matter with Kansas?" the
women teachers of the nation would
answer with one voice, "She is all
School opened at Silver City Monday,
Sept. 12th, with two instructors and
thirty three pupils. Prof. A. D. Brad

Miss Eva L. White is teacher lor the
lower grades. Miss White is a primary
teacher of thorough training and highly
successful experience and Silver City is
fortunate in securing her services. The
primary class of ten pupils just entering
school this year is the largest class of be
ginners our school has had for years.
Their first lessons show them to be as
eager and intelligent a lot of youngsters

Mattie Heer and Clifford Weston left
here to attend the University of Idaho at
Moscom, and Verna Frye, Ray, Karl and
Ned Williams for the Albion State Nor
mal School, at Albion, the two former
leaving here this week and the latter last
week. All of these are bright and well
brought up young people, so well ad
vanced in school studies that their par
ents have thought it desirable to send
them to higher schools for further ad
vancement, and we hope to hear of ex
cellent reports from one and all of them.
Let them remember that knowledge is
power, and that. education is a friend
which no enemy can alienate, no prison
can bar from one. At home it is a
friend; abroad, an introduction; in com
pany, a comfort, and in solitude, a solace,
and that the days industriously employed
in acquiring it are days spent in gather
ing treasures, of which one can never be
Mr. Asher A. Getchell, our postmaster
and druggist, informs us that he has
made application to the postoflice depart
ment to start a postal savings bank here,
an idea which we heartily approve of and
hope he will be successful in landing.
While we ourselves may not be fortunate
enough to possess a little surplus cash to
deposit with him in Uncle Sam's bank,
we have a class of people in our commun
ity whom we know to send their money
to foreign countries to be deposited, be
cause they are afraid of our. banks. But
with a bank in our midst, with Uncle
Sam as president, ought to be sufficient
guarantee of the safety of your deposit
and worthy of patronage. Look into this
matter thoroughly before you send your
money abroad and satisfy yourself. All
information regarding this new postal
bank, and how to make your deposits
etc., will be cheerfully given by our post

ceived today from Carson City, Nev., a
telegram stating that the supreme court
of Nevada had affirmed the decision of the
lower court, which gives him the credit
for originating the idea of what is now
known as the Consolidated Mines

day $8.25 a share, and upon which there
has accumulated $100,000 in dividends.
Later we learn that this case has been,
or will be, taken to the United States
supreme court. This gentleman is well
and favorably known in Silver City, he
being a son-in-law of our townspeople,
Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Hayes, and at one
time manager of the famous Trade Dollar

Card of Thinks
To the many kind friends of Dewey
and Silver City and vicinity, who so
kindly assisted us with act of kindness
and sympathy in onr sad hour of bereav

The beginning of work again in the up
per workings of the company's property
has revealed some very rich ore in the 100
which is improving as work progresses.
There is every reason to believe that very
favorable results will lie accomplished
when the new compressor arrives and is
installed and men put at work to tap this
ore shoot, in the mill level tunnel, which
has been encountered in the upper work
ings. When this ore shoot isencountered
in the mill level tunnel, the workings will
be deep enough to permit of its extrac
tion without much loss of time and will be
of easy access to the mill. If the man
agement is a little slow about listing the |
stock and putting it on the market it is
merely because they want the public to
be thoroughly convinced that the recent
strike is all it has been represented to be.

Three Great Plants, One Bird.
When Columbus discovered America,
he not only opened a new world to the
children of men; but it was found that
this new world possessed three plants
which have since become necessities to
mankind. The potato, Indian corn and
tobacco came to the world with that dis
covery. What would the world do with
out them now? The potato is most gen
erally used, but we believe that com in
its manifold uses is the most important
plant in the world, while tobacco has be
come a real necessity to the civilized and
semi-civilized people of the whole earth.
Take it from armies and navies of the
most progressive nations and there would
be a general mutiny; take it from the
printing office and before a week there
would not be a newspaper worth reading
in the world.
A failure of a corncrop in the United
States for a single year would be an over
whelming disaster, a failure of a corn

people in the latter country to starve.
We all know what formerly followed
when the potato crop in Ireland was a

Roman standards led the way for the

soldier fight better with a section of a
turkey in his stomach and no standard,
than with nothing in his stomach and an
eagle on his flag? No corn, no potato,
no tobacco, no turkey, no wonder the
world had begun to degenerate.-Good
THE SCHOOL AGE
With every year that passes more and
more thought is being given to the sub-i
ject of the phpsieal care of children.
Attention is especially turnhig to that
class of children whose parents are either
too ignorant or too careless to pay proper
regard to their bodily welfare, and es
pecially is the state growing to a sense of
its duty in regard to the children in its
The schools are no longer looked upon
as dumps, where children are to be placed
and kept without discrimination as to
age, capacity or physical condition. Par
ents as well as pedagogists are growing
more and more awakened to the absolute
loss of time involved in sending little child
ren to the public schools who have no
right to be there. A sick child has no
place in the school at all, a defective
child has no place among children who
are normal, and all children below ten
years of age are being treated with noth
ing short of cruelty when the full comple
ment of hours is exacted from them.
There was never yet seen a normal
child who was fitted to sit still indoor B
from nine o'clock until four, with a break
of only one hour at noon. Such an ar
ran f?ement means in the winter no day
light playtime at all. The child is kept
at an unnatural tension when attention
is demanded of him for hours atastretch,
and study is made odious to him, so that
lessons become associated in his mind
with all that is wearisome and to be
Many a poor little boy plays truant
and takes his punishment again and
again. He knows that retribution is in
evitable, aud yet he faces it because, al
though he could not express it, the alter
native—that of spending the long day at
the school desk—is intolerable. He is
not a natural criminal, he is not a poten
tial tramp, although he may become one
under the system. He is simply a natur
al, healthy little boy, able to attend to
hto teacher up to a certain point, and
then able no longer, do what he or his
If truancy and backwardness and in
attention result from some physical de
fect, such as imperfect eyes or deafness,
the case is even more cruel, and natural
mental development is a physical impossi
bility until the defects are remedied.
Much good work has already been done
in the direction of physical examination
of defective children, and much has also
been done to remedy the partial or actual
starvation which is the piteous state of so
many children of the poorer classes; but
much remains to be done, and especially
in the matter of the number of hours in
school demanded of children under ten
years of age.—Youth's Companion.
