Albion has had some trouble in en forcing the law against selling intoxicat ing liquors to habitual drunkards, but the council have recently passed an ordinance that they believe will be effective against the evil. Tax Joubnaxi has noticed that mostly the trouble lies not in the law itself but in the fact that what laws there are, are not enforced, and are not meant to be enforced often, those eleoted being privately but effect ively pledged to ignore, laws they are sworn to enforce. Miss Lydia 8chultx, of Schuyler, who waa awarded first place for the best declamation on a humorous subject at the annual contest of the Nebraska Declamatory Union, held in Kearney Friday evening, May 10, is a niece of Mr. H. D. Schaff with whose family she vis ited for a few days last week. Kearney Courier. Mr. Schaff was a former teacher in our High school and for several years has been in the Industrial school in Kearney. The talented young lady is also a niece of our citizen, D. F. Schaff. In reading our exchanges, we notice that more than the usual number of Nebraska teachers are dropping out of the ranks, some "wishing to take a year's rest"; some "desiring to change local ity"; a few contemplating a change of occupation, altogether. It occurs to us that if there could be some way provided whereby the life of the teacher could be made, lees exacting, it would be well to do so, even for the sake of the children. "The habit of happiness" is hardly con sistent with even five days' steady con finement in the school room, through nine months in the year, and ono year after another the tension is entirely too great, and moio especially so, whin cramming and artificial methods are substituted for nature's generous and genial ways. The lecture on the "Canny Scot," by Rev. Geo. A. Munro of the Congrega tional church was ono of the most inter esting and instructive ever listened toby a Columbus audience, and the audience one of the bast that has ever assembled to hear a popular lecture. The lecture is a careful delineation of Scotch char acter and analysis of Scotch literature, which gives a better understanding of that sturdy race and adds interest and appreciation to their beautiful and inter esting literature. The readings and character sketches in Scotch dialect were especially well received. Judged by the standards of literary excellence the lecture has seldom been equalled in the eity. A class of 135 were confirmed in the Catholic church Sunday morning. The services lasted from 9:30 to 1 o'clock. Bishop Scannell and Father Pacifious of Omaha, Father Hyacynth of Platte Cen ter, Father Rynariua and Marcalinus, resident priests conducted the services. This is the first time for five years the Bishop has been here to conduct' con firmation services and the church was crowded to its utmost capacity, about 1200 being present Anton Vogel, P. J. Hart, Mrs. E. D. Fitzpatrick and Mrs. M. Vogel acted as sponsors. The Bishop went from here to Duncan to hold simi lar services there Monday, and goes to Platte Center this Tuesday for similar services on Wednesday. The Bishop's sermon here was upon manliness, and is said to have been a very able discourse. R. S. Kellogg and L. C. Miller, rep resenting the tree-planting division of the Bureau of Forestry at Washington, D. C, are in Fremont The Herald says that they left Plattsmouth May 7, after taking copious field notes there. They are driving overland and are making their work as thorough as possible. They expect to reach Kearney by the first of July. After going through the Platte valley they expect to go north into the Pine Ridge country, returning down the Loup. Their work is in the interest of the growth of timber in Ne braska. Those who have lived the last thirty years in Nebraska can see the great things that have been accomplished in this line. Nebraskana have acquired the habit of planting trees, many more each year than they cut down, and thus the climate is being changed, the mois ture is being conserved, and the needs of the future are being provided for. South Omaha is becoming a horse market with a prospect of doing consid erable business in that line. Three sale days during the week have been main tained for draft horses and mules, but something more is now thought possible, at least last week one horse brought $310; another $295, and a third with a track record of 2:26, was sold for $250. "I have been with this market practically ever since its beginning," said Mr. Proc tor, "and I have faith in its futuro as a horse market Already this year we sold ten times as many as we did the first year the market was established here, and from this time on I look for further increases, especially of high bred stock." This will be welcome news to Nebraska farmers, most of whom have not heretofore given much attention to .the breeding ot horses except for use on the farm. Now that greater numbers of farmers are turning thrifty pennies, and getting some funds ahead, those who have an aptitude1- for horse-breeding, horse-training and selling, will feel encouraged, at least As the seasons come and go, man kind are improving along all lines, and in nothing are they showing better judg ment than in their endeavor to provide themselves with rational food. Nebras kana, this year, will probably see some thing that will show to them the value of the work they have been doing for a good many years, through one discour agement and another. From present indications we are likely to have an immense orop of fruit Fruit, all that is needed and some to sell; all that people will want to use, and some to give to the neighbors; fruit to dry, to can, to pre serve, to store away. "Nature helps them that helps themselves," and Nature puts her plans into the heads of the people. We have noticed old men plant ing fruit trees, ostensibly for the benefit of their grand children, but really as something in turn for future generations, to pay for what they themselves had received. No thought ot good is lost All is garnered in Nature's store-house, and those of us whose lives extend over scores ot years notice that there is great improvement in the fruits' and plants, and all the various products of the earth.
