We are indebted to County Clerk F

It is a neat and comprehensive record

But live weeks till . the Semester
Jxaminations. at which time all pu

the work of the whole Semester. Pu
pils, especially those in the upper
grammar grades and in the High
School, should begin review. Three
essentials of master' are hard study,
understanding of what yon study,
arid review. This last is of much im
portance: going over a subject once
does not fix it Hrmly for the average
pupil. With the pupil's added know

methods and terms, and ability to
distinguish important topics as a re

is indispensable for gaining a definit e.

From the Kansas City Tost, we are
glad fo learn of the success as a physi
cian that is coming to our young
friend, Dr. I. E. Ruhl. a former New
Point boy. Dr. Ruhl lias several cases
of infant paralysis, a disease now
causing the medical world much trou
ble, lie is qmted in the Post as say
ing: ''Most of the afflictions seem to
be confined to the legs. .Tust why
this part of the anatomy is the most
susceptible is not known. Another
thing I have noticed is that most of
the cases start with sore throat,
mouth and tonsils. If the germs do
figst attach themselves to the body by
this ingress, and then work into the
nervous system, 1 think it advisable
as soon as an infant develops a sore
mouth and tonsils the parents should
call a physician." We are always
pleased to learn of the success of any
and all of Holt county's boys.

Notice For Rural Patrons.
Some time ago we published a see
tion of the postal laws governing the
use of loose coin on rural routes in
payment for postal supplies. This re
mures that all mailable matter mast
be stamped and that there shall be
no loose coin placed in boxes. Dur
ing the summer months, the carriers
have been exceedingly lenient with
their patrons and have gathered up
the pennies, but now as" winter lias
come, t lie carriers, one and an, nave
decided that on and after Dec. 1st,
they will abide strictly by Ihe rule:
and regulations of thedepartment re
garding loose coins. We hope the pa
trons will provide themselves with
stamps and other supplies that there
may be no delay. Your carrier will
trv to alwavs have on hand plenty of
uipplies to meet your demands. We
would advise using the stamped route
envelopes as much as possible.

THE WEAPON IS FOUNDS
The Shotgua With Which Hobbels
' Were Killed Is Found:: '
The last link in the chain of evf
dence connecting Hez. Rasco with
the killing of Oda Ilubbell, his wife
and two small children and firing
their home near Barnard on Sunday.
November 20, was forged Saturday of
last week, when the shotgun which
Hez. Rasco borrowed of Joe Cayton
was found in the haymow in the
barn of Henry Rasco, the young
man's father. '
Sheriff Tilson and his deputy, Ev
ans, called at the Rasco home early
Saturday morning. They found the
family up. Henry Rasco, the father
of Hez. Rasco, was called aside by the
officers and told of their mission! His
daughter, 16 years old. is said to be in
a pitiable nervous condition, and the
approach of any stranger on the pre
mises sends her into hysterics.
"If you should find anything on the
premises," said the father, "do not
tell any of the famiiy about it nor
make any display that will lead theni
to any conclusion."
The barns were searched. In the
last one in the loft was part of a load
of hay. Alongside the "plate" that
ran through the loft and concealed in
the hay the gun, a double-barreled
affair, was found, the hammers first
coming into view. Heeding the re-'
quest of Henry Rasco, the two officers
at once left the farm without giving
out any information.
Rasco borrowed five shotgun shells
from Cayton when he got the gun.
He accounts for all of them by saying;
that he shot five times atTabbits Sun
day morning, killing three. The gun,
when -found in the hay loft, was emp
ty. The gun contains two empty shells
and the stock is covered with blood.
It is a double-barrelled breech-loading
shotgun of modern makel Sheriff,
deputies, constable and volunteers
have spent a tireless week in a vain
effort to locate this one missing piece
of evidence. Every foot of the
ground from the Hubbelliiome to the
Rasco home has been gone over time
again, and the Platte River has been
dragged. Wells have been pumped
dry and every other possible place has
been visited time after time, and all
