Not another county in Nebraska can
boast of the fact that all its teachers
excepting four are attending institute
upon the third day but that is the case
in Cherry Some of our teachers have
driven as far as eighty miles to be pre
sent at our institute while others have
travelled almost one hundred miles by
rail which goes to show the intense
enthusiasm and interest manifested in
the school work
Mrs Pile our lady instructor is one
of theTnstruetors in the Normal school
at Wayne she was also with us last
year and too much can not be said
about her ability to help and direct
the teacher The instruction received
from her is appreciated by each indi
vidual teacher attending institute
Prof Pinkerton has been superin
tendent of the Eairbury city schools
for three years past and goes from

wit and intelligent sayings are appre
ciated by all who are so fortunate as to
hear him His talk on mental philoso
phy and child study the last thing in
the evening is the most important sub
ject of the day as that question is be

In the mandamus case from school
district No 3b an order was issued by
Judge Westover at a special term of
court held here last Monday to the
county treasurer requiring him to pay
to the district treasurer the sum of
496 The railroad company interven
ed as plaintiff thus letting Treasurer
Crabb out of the case and paid the
costs A bill of exceptions- may be
filed and the case carried to the su
preme court but it is not probable
that it will be done
School House Site Selected
Tuesday evening the adjourned
meeting of the voters of school dis
trict No 1 was held at Cornell Hall
with President Walcott in the chair
Secretary Pettijohn read the minutes
of the previous meeting the president
stated the object of the meeting ques
tions were asked and answered aa libi
tum W E Haley and Kobert Good
were appointed tellers and the ballot
ing began No new propositions were
offered and balloting waaavuu
vJSsv last weeks Demo
crat There was considerable inter
est manifested but a poor attendance
considering the importance of the
question to be considered The first
ballot gave site No 1 west of Zarrs
13 votes site No 2 north of Walcotts
14 votes site No 4 east of M E par
sonage 11 votes and site No 5 east
ofHittsbarn 7 votes The second
ballot Drought out 49 votes No 2
nnd No 4 onlv 11 votes
0
Third ballot gave No 2 a total of 22
votes At this point a motion was
made to add 4 lots to sits No 1 mak
ing it almost a full block Motion
lost
Fourth ballot was precisely the same
as the third A motion to take a re
cess was lost Fifth ballot showed
things in worse shape than before No
2 receiving 17 votes and No 4 12
votes Sixth ballot put No 4 in the
lead with 17 votes and No 5 next
with 16 Seventh ballot gave No 4
29 votes j three less than enough to
carry Eighth ballot gave the same
site 31 votes 1 less than two thirds
Ninth ballot resulted No 111 votes
23 votes 436 votes 52 votes
Total 50 votes This settled the
question of a school house so far as the
selection of a site is concerned and
ihe meeting adjourned to next Wed
nesday evening at 8 oclock when
ways and means for issuing bonds will
be discussed and preliminaries ar
ranged
The site chosen is a good one and is
centrally located north and south The
site comprises an entire block is easy
of access cheap as could be desired
almost and is no farther from the
west part of town than the present
buildincr Some of the residents of
that part of the city are inclined to
feel agrieved over the face that the lo
cation is east instead of west and
threaten to fight the issue of bonds
which will be necessary to insure a
new school building but this paper i
believes that in their cooler moments
they will see the folly of so doing
Certainly the will of two thirds of the
voters was expressed at the meeting
Tuesday night and
nothing
can be
gained by continuing the light Up to
date everything has been harmonious
and it would be a pity for anyone to
advocate or attempt to promote dis
cord All should ivork together for a
new school house The town needs
it and needs it badly
