(T uuu, auu o mo ... u. i. vv were nlso liberated in tho midst of win ter, it was decided to choose a day in 'tho summer season when tho event 8 bo dear to tho race could be celebrated : ina boniUng manner, and the day se 'loctod was Aug. 4. ' Tho celebration hero on last Tues day took placo in the courtyard park "and was a glowing success, attended liy "an immense crowd of people, both black 'anil whito 'There were many ' visiting 1 colored people from St. Joseph, White 'Cloud", Forest City and other places. Tiie white peoplo also from the adjacent country, neighboring townsi' adjoining "counties and distant places came in to 'participate as spectators. The weather could hardly have been more favorable, though a little warm. ' The exercises were opened early in the morning by the rendition of some fine 6 trains by tho Contr.il' cornet band of SU ' Joseph. This band Is'made uji entirely of colored Ixns and is ono of the fore- most bands in tho northwest. At 10 o'clock tho program was taken up and the crowd called to order by Ananias Tahl, president of tlui day. "Music was discoursed by the band, and tho glee club, under the efficient leader ship of Mra. W. M. Scott, of Lathrop, furnished n 6p'ondid song, after which Ev. Stowart invoked the divine blcss 'ing. .The Emancipation Proclamation wns roni by "Rev. Ben Harris, of this city, 'and after more music Elder Horace Sib 'eiell was introduced, who delivered n 'very entertaining and able address. It tto3 one of tho elder's best efforts and wo3 wejl appreciated by his hearers. .In tho aftornoon Mrs. Scott read nn essay entitled, "What is Thero in a Name." It was indeed a masterly pro duction and a literary gem. Wo very ranch regret that a lack of space will riot admit of its publication this week but it will appeir in our next issue. Prof. W. II. Jones, tho silver tongued orator of St. Joseph, then addressed the "large crowd. The professor is one of tho 'roost brilliant and ablecotored mo of the state. Ining n clear, logical and forceful ' speaker. Hp portrayed very cloarly tho wrongs of slavery, said it was n stigma century, rwriirtS?. to e:in2o. Ho told told of the the nialfririr' and moral dos 'titulion of the colored people nt the time or their liberation. He said their con ' tact with the white people had wrought a wonderful progress in the people of his "race. Tlie amelioration of their morals 'was likewise mentioned. He piftured n more rapid progress for the futuro ttian thai which had nmrked tho last, "and showed clearly that the colored " is destined to become ono of the leading races of the earth. The professor won 'many cncoiniuinastic compliments by 'this splendid effort. JllllM.

Holt county has for years been proud of her county institute and from the reports brought to us from other coun ties, she may well be so. I can say from my own personal knowledge that for six years past we have had nothing but first class instructors and good attendance, good deportment and good work on the part of the teachers. But I think that all who have been in attendance this year and for the past years will agreo that we havo never botoro had n sesMon that was so thoroughly woll adapted to tho wants of the teachers, both to those who nre just preparing for work and to those of experience. The principal objection to former ses sions has been Unit they bnve been merely a school in which to review for examination, nnd gavo the beginner no opportunity to borrro anything from the experience of thoso who had trav eled the road boforo them. Under the new law the work is divided into three divisions, each division to occupy tho timo of ono year's session nnd to em brace tho studios required in the three grades of certificate. Methods of imparting instruction and the art of governing have been largely discussed and, we think, largely to the advantage of all. Tho old fashioned idea of examination, marking and grad ing was also freely discussed and given n largo step toward the richly merited abolition. Mrs. Kaucher ha3 been sick most of the past week, but wo are glad to seo her with us again. Mr. O. P. Light has been absent from some unknown cause. The peoplo of Mound City will give a reception to the teachers on Thursday night nt the Mc-thodist church. The literary program will be givjn in the church. Tho refreshments will bo served in the yard. Several of tho teachers visitod tho Big lake Saturday nnd Sunday. They all ropoJt a good time, though they sny that the gumbo road wa3 nther"rouky." We think as much, but wo never war. Zaebary end-Hibbard nexer fail to iscoUteir fun. If Nixon was -out- the "Lb would have all the longest men.

The lur:al was delayed as long as it could 'v., waiting for the father to re turn to 1 :! 'is.oo more upon tho faco of his child. Just as tho sun was selling tho remains wero laid to rest by loving hands in the Maple Grovoceinitery, nnd as the little body was beiug lowered to its resting place the following passages of Scripture were read:. "So also is the resurrection of the dsad. It :s sown in corruption, it is raised in interruption; it is sown in dis honor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spirit ual body. Fur this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality." B. Craltf. Dudley Weddle. of Craig, started for Norton county, Kansas, Monday last.

Tho home talent of our neighboring town of Craig will give n theatrical en tertainment nt the opera house in this city, Friday evening. This will give our citizens a chance to reciprocate past favors, nnd they'll do it too. Squire Ball held court nt the Blair Rchool-houso lost Friday. The case of lighting that occurred in the saloon was disposed of. Charges of assault were sustained against Beelor for assaulting John Cook. Ho was fined 310 and costs, making about 800 in nil. The minstrels nt tho opera house last week wero a howling fraud. A bat flying about tho room deservedly at tracted moro attention than they did, so the audience neglected tho show nnd entered a free for all race for tho bat. The bat escaped, so did tho minstrels. The Froe Will Baptists havo erected a largo tent capable of seating four or fivo hnndred people and nro holding a protracted meoting.

A sister of Miss Lillian Allen is here visiting. John Price has purchased the Sao ger farm. Wellio Glenn is on the lookout for a new house. Mr. Foose has rontod Rev. Bowers farm for "92. Crops look well, and bid fair to mako n splendid yiold. The little daughter of Mr. Samuel rt.iyhill is now improving. Recently, Eldor Siberell preached two very oxcellont discourses. Tho male gossip-mongerof the neigh borhood still keeps his beaten path. It is rumored that Lyman West contemplates going to Nebraska soou. A fow days ago, Dr. Tracy, of Mound City, wa9 bore on professional business. Many of our people aro making arrangements to nttend the Maitland fair. Our Sabbath school is progressing nicely. The interest still keep3 un abated. Hay making and tho stacking of grain appear to be tho order of the day with our farmers. Benjsmin Franklin MeDaniel has been employed to tench the fall and win tor term of the Forbes school. Still the McKinloy bill grows in favor. As its principles aro better un derstood, the better it is liked. Mrs. Ella Martin, of below New Point, w.is visiting her parents, Mc. and Mm. Davis, the early part of the week. It isenid, that Grant Babcock has rented the Znchman farm the farm that Mr. Foose has managed for the post four years. Ezra Koarney.of Forbes.paid Walter Hodgins a visit, last Saturday. He ap peared delighted with Wultor's young horses. Mr. Whitten and daughter, Laura, of Mound City, wero visiting relatives hore a couple of days the latter part of last wook. Within the past few days.Mr.FIcm- ing, of Andrew county, has hauled away Bove ral hundred bushels of corn, that he purchased last winter. Wes and Scott Hodgins nre certainly successful in their farming. Thoy not only look after nil the affairs connected wiiti tho rarm, but all or ino iiuties re lating to hou'w-kecping nro kept in "tip top" shape. Tho boys are wido-awake, and are evidently making money. Our community has a young man, who is making a profound study of the financial problem. Doubtless, bo is seeking a true nnd practical solution of it. He employs himself at the rate of 75 cents per day, nnd secures help to labor in ins place at homo at ijlo per day. A brilliant idea indeed. It might bo a good plnn for some of thoso great political (?) "orators." that reside in close proximity, especially those that contemplated taking part in the Nebraska canvass last fall, to give b helping hand in the Iowa campaign this autumn. Xo doubt they would be recog nized! Nothing like opportunity and intluonce.you knsw? Mr. Curtis, the berry man, has been delivering berries, during the greater part of last week. He informed jour scribe, that quite a number of people, that reside along the road-side, are very negligent about trimming their hedge, thus making it very disagreeable to pass through tho lanes, where tho untrimmed hedge is. Now, this is cot as it should be. Peoplo should bear in mind, that j the, law is very strict, in regard to this mnttor, nnd mako it a point to com ply with its stern mandates. A young bachelor, who makes pro tensions to business and industry, made a trip "to the old home stead," quite re cently, for n load of fencing prats with which ho intended to build a much needed fence. Tho distanco was not groat, but ho was gone about half a day, and returned home with three or four crooked willow posts. Ho gavo no ex cugo for this peculiar way of managing "much needed" affairs, but, wo ofter wards learr.f d, that ico cream and a pleasant nnd interesting young lady had much to do with it. K. E. W. Obituary. Ernest Norris, son of Mr. and Mrs. Oakley Norris, died after an illness of two days at tho home of his parents.four miles west of Forest City, on the morn ing of July 23, 1891, aged two years, ono month nnd thirteen days. Tho funeral services were conducted at the -Centon church by Ror. J. Dowers, who preached to a sympathizing audience.

SCHULTE the New Fin AUCTIONEER- - Mailland, Mo. Here is n fact to be kept in mind. There is no class of business men in the country so little in debt as tho farmers. The assots of the farmers to offset their ndebtednes nro greater in proportion I to the debt than thoeeot any other class. Hie savings banks of Missouri will show what class has the greatest proportion of idle capital that is, money not used in the business in which it was earned, but deposited to draw interest. The farm ers of our grand old commonwealth are lenders as well as borrowers of money and there are fewer financial failures among farmers than any other line ot business. Here is n fact that it is well to remind our freo trado friends. While we havo in tho United States one pauper to every C43 inhabitants, England has one to every thirty-eight inhabitants. Maitland. John Fields is out of town this week advertising tho fair. We have been favored with rice, sunny weather for tho past few days hope it may continue. Now that the Maitland Herald has a brand new editor what will become of "The Skidraore Pot?" Ed Laliue loft Monday for Tarkio to accept a position in the telegraph cilice there. Success to him.

Crooks, tho popular dry goods salesman at Smith fc Patty's 2uu dayed with friends and relatives at Clnrinda. Iowa. G. G. Brunson, the "defunct" editor ot the Maitland Herald, has left for his homo, near Quitman, no will bo missed and especially so by some of the "fair sex." Howovor, what is our loss is Quit man's gain. Much talk has been indulged in about a "mill." but of late it has abated somowhat. Does it mean a failure? Thero is no bettr location in the county for a mill, and Maitland needs it. By nil means let us have it. Col Libby camo 'up from Orecon i Saturday last and Sundayed with the gooti peoplo ot Alnitlanu. We under stand ho canio up to look after hia in terests in regard to stock exhibits at the coming fair. From present outlook the fair will bo a decided success. Several charges have taken place among our business men ot late. E- L. H.irt purchased tho Maitland Herald. John Ogls sold his interest in the black smith shop to his partner, Mr. David Kennedy. But John will still meat hU frionds at tho old placo with tho usual 2x0 smile. W. E. Wade has sold his in tores1, in tho "pop corn cart" to photog rapher Carpenter. "Let the good work go on."
