" Ho wan greeted with n duo ovation when ho made his appearance on the platform and Immed iately launched into the dlsdustUon of his mibjoot with the following forceful Htittuuiout : "Litornturo inn record of the oxporlouooH nud the Irtcnlb of hnmniilty thnt nro of stilHclent vnlue to nmlco them worthy of hulng perpetuated ; nnd it in the business of teaching of Htornturo to mnko the experiences nnd the idonlH of huu'inutty ' to como , hotter tlinn the ex periences nud the idonls of humanity that has boon. " With thia an n basis for liiH talk ho made nu address that nu- questionably sank deep Into the hearts of his hoarura , whoso ideas regarding the touching of literature In the public schools undoubtedly Hufforod a radical change , to the mutual Improvement of tvauhorri nud pupils. His idea was not that children /Uiould bo converted into walking oyolopodiiw , but that they Mould1 booouio men nud women nud thnt the teaching of literature shouldy not ho confluod to the high school course hut thnt it should follow through nil the grades nud the love of good reading should lie onrly instilled into the honrtfl of the ohildron. lie orontod n profound nnd lasting impression. Mr. Smith is n humorist , hut not ono of [ the light nhd nousotislonl sort ; his humor ia Hashing , Bolntlllntiug , nud in- trodncofl , foltpws and permeates thoughts of p'rofdaud depth nnd logio. Ho is nu adopt nt creating d laugh mid yet when tiio laugh in over some thought of value remains that years' cannot efface. Ho dollgiits liis hearers niidjyot instructs thoroughly nnd permanently. Ho la n pVaotioal educator , but one does not liood to bo nu educator to take n deep interest in his lectures. Mr. Smith hud addressed Norfolk audiences several Union Ih the past nnd it in to bo hoped tlint his acquaintance with Norfolk nnd Norfolk people IH but just begun. Tiio evening closed with nuothor piano selection by the four ladles from the Wnyno college. Much credit for the success of the mooting just closed is duo to the re- tlrlhg president , Prof. W. G. Hirons of Pierce , who made n model presiding officer nud handled complex questions with skill besides attending to the de tails couiiug before him with grace and dispatch. Other oillcera nud commit tees of the association were also given unstinted credit for the very onjoynbh1 session. Suporiutoudont O'Connor of this city , , Superintendent Gruui of Madison nnd the teachers of tno Norfolk schools worked enthusiastically , untiringly nud energetically thnt the association might ho n creditnblo one iu point of interest nud attendance. The visiting teachers took deep Interest iu the exhibit of school work nnd many of them asked for ( specimens to tnko homo nud show their pupils. The citizens , nud especially the busi- ness men , expressed n hearty npprooin- tion tlmttho ; session had boen'hold here , bringing n flue , clean class of people hero for nlmost n week. As n matter of business they were n great advnutngo to the town , 'many ' of thorn-having comejlib- orally supplied with money with which to do shopping , nnd n conservative busl- i nosM mnu estimated thnt they had or ponded not loss than $3,000 during their visit nnd was of the belief that they will come again and bring others. The people of the city were uniformly accommodating nnd courteous , many of them going out of.their way to oblige the visitors. Oue or two instances might bo cited where they were not 1 but one worthy example of courtesy might bo given in thnt of Burt Mnpes who snrroudored his homo entirely to too the use of the teachers without charge ; nndn goodly olnb found comfortable lodging there , while he boarded nt the hotel , his wife being absent in Omaha.

A Spring Warning. Look out for n visit from the nnunn fakirs who sell groceries "direct to th farmers" from n "big" Chicago house They nlwnya stnrt the order nt augur n n low price , -1 cents in this case , but i you order uothiug else your sugar neve conies , nud if yon do not order ouong other stuff with your sngnr your ordo is promptly torn up. However , if yo buy n nice lot of ten nt 80 or 90 ceuts and n nice lot of coffee nt15 centsspices bolting powder , extracts , etc. , on whic they double the cost price in every in stance , yon get your goods. Yon got saviug of about 05 cents on your sugar you pay this back on the first two dollar worth of other items and from thou o * > yon are fixing yourself so you will feel good until the whole bill of goi < N it gone nud forgotten. They are high pr o men , selling n limited quantity of gouiin , drawing big salaries nnd paying high expenses besides livery hire , they make it nil off of you , dear friend , the minute yon listen to tholr lying , oily tongues. The editor of the Republican has nn accurate knowledge of groceries from Actual experience iu handling them and advises fnrmers to liny of homo merchants , not becnuso of their being advertisers possibly now , but he- cauBO of it being money in the farmers' pockets. The locnl grocer would cheer fully duplicate the bill with better goods nt the same price or the same goods nt n lower ouo as ho makes his good profits always off of the thlugti you pay a still higher price for when you touch 45 cent coffee nnd 80 centj teas. Then he only asks his money back nud a slight margin when ho weights np sugnr thnt costs always too much wo think , but a whole lot too much if wo buy n high priced lot of stuff to save about 05 cents on a sack. These folks nro doiug business in northern Iowa nnd will bo in Nebraska in n short time , no doubt. Wnyne Republican. Almost a Centenarian.

Ho had never known n day of sickness , nnd when ho retired uiglit before Instjho was apparently enjoyed his usual health. During the night ho arose from his bed nnd fell to the floor.
