Cherry county teachers were out in
force to attend the meeting cf the
General Teachers Association here

Miss Etta Brown handled her sub

W Strong provoked much discussion
and excited admiration for the teacher
by the manner in which he illustrated
his talk This was perhaps the most
interesting discussion of the day
In the afternoon C H Boty read
bis most excellent paper on education
old and new and C V Thorn made
some interesting comparisons between
the methods of those twogreat teach
ers Herbart and Froebel Mrs Lizzie
Crawfords paper on child study was
remarkable for its clearness and
doubtless gave many of the teachers
new ideas on the subject J R Fee
talked rather sarcastically of school
boaids in general and some of his
remarks were excepted to by Mrs
Kittie Crowe and a general discussion
was participated in Prof U O
Anderson read a splendid paper on the
public school and advanced some sug
gestious as to what it should accom
plish that were heartily endorsed by
every teacher present We hope to
see his words bear good fruit

The banquet given by the ladies of
tne Order of the Eastern Star to the
Masons of Valentine last Saturday
night was a delightful affair and
about sixty persons partook of the re
past prepared by the ladies Masonic
lodge was in session Saturday night
and a candidate Mr Anderson of
Fort Niobrara vas being given the
third degree but as all Masons are
knpwn to be lovers of good things
especially eatables a recess was taken
at 9 oclock and the lodge marched to
the court house in a body Ye editor
was kindly invited co be present and
we will wager that no person enjoyed
himself more than we did unless it
was Judge Walcott or Receiver Fike
each of whom has a wonderful appe
tite and an abundance of good humor
The tables were prettily decorated and
thefjse cream well it was scrumptious
mortgage lleeord
Through the courtesy of the county
clerk we are enabled to give our read
ers the following record of mortgages
filed and satisfied in Cherry county last
month Six farm mortgages for a
total of 1258940 were filed and sev
enteen for 577890 were satisfied
One village mortgage for 1440 was
satisfied and none filed Fifty three
chattel mortgages for 13928 25 were
filed and twentynine for 1404696
were satisfied Three sheriffs deeds
fur farm property and two for city
property were given
The total amount of mortgages filed
was 2651765 and of those satisfied
was 2126586 giving a balance of
5251 89 in favor of the former The
balance would be on the other side but
for the fact that one of the farm mort
gages filed was lor 10000 and that
too on but 960 acres of land This
fact shows that eastern capitalists are
firm believers in Cherry county and
know a good investment when they
see it One of the chattel mortgages
was for 6000 and a herd of 500 cat
tle is the security That investment
is a safe one
