But the destroyer has received a deathblow and is powerless to inflict further injuries.

Special. Hie university of Nebraska foot ball team waa defeated here ibis afternoon in a hotly contested game with the Denver athletic club eleven by a eoore of 13 to 4. The Nebraska team was unable to withstand the superior rushing, brilliant end rnns and excellent bunting of the Denver team. Nebraska's', rush line was crippled by the illness of Jones. Though the score may not indicate it, yet the university boys put up a good game.

The weather waa favorable though a side wind in the first half of the game may have given a slight advantage to the Dsnvar boys. The contest was witnessed by over 1,000 people. Members of the' visiting eleven are well pleased with the treatment they have received at the h.nds of the Denver athletio club. They quartered the Nebraska' team at the Brown. Palace hotel aud this evening both teams attended in a body the performance of the Lillian Kussell Opera company at the Tabor Grand.

FOUGHT TO A FIN 111. Kickers of Northwestern aud Michigan Universities Come Together. Chicago, 111, Oct 29. The foot ball elevens of Northwestern and Michigan universities fought to a finish here today. The Northwestern kickers came out ahead.

The score was 10 to 8 and the play was close and furious, with plenty of glory all around. Northwestern made two touchdowns and mauaged to kick one goal, while the Ann Arbors, although they did as well in the matter of touchdowns twice failed at the goal kick and finished two points behind. There were many good plays and some poor ones on each side. Soys and Sbepard, for Northwestern, played a magnificent game and were ably supported. For Michigan, Jewett, the colored half back, put up great foot ball and made himself the most conspicuous figure of the day.

Jewett, who is about the size and build of the famous Ames, runs and twists in exactly the same way as the great Princetnnian, and with any sort of backing would make touchdowns by the dozen. He was poorly assisted today. Harvard and Amherst. Boston, Oct. 29, The Har-vard-Amherst foot ball game at Cambridge this afternoon is considered something of a Waterloo for Harvard, for although that team won by a score of 33 to 10, the fact that the Amherst eleven was able to score so many points is very disheartening to the Cambridge team.

Amherst made the points. Dot by flukes, but by bard, straightforward playing, Princeton and Wesleyan. New York, Oct. 9. There was a good crowd present at Manhattan field this afternoon when Princeton and Wesley-an lined up against each other for the first game of the inter-collegiate championship but the threatening weather kept many persons away from the game.

At Nashville. Nashville, Oct 9. The fall meeting of the West Side jockey dub THREE-FOURTHS OF ALL IN THE COUNTY THERE. The First Session of the County Association Anrurs Well for the Year, The Educational Value of the ol a m-bus Day Celebration Discussed Historical Study Ursred. I'roiltable and Kujoyablo.

That the teachers of Lancaster couMty are awake to their duty is evidenced by the way in which they have started out in their association work this full. The first programme of the school year was held yesterday. The day was' perfect. A mild temperature and a pleasant sunshine made it convenient for the teachers to come out en mass and at the appointed hour the superintendent's apartments bey an to show signs of a busy day. Representatives from all parta of the county were in attendance.

The work of the past weeka was talked over privately and general social conversation prevailed for a time. John J. Andersou, principal of the Hickman school, was installed as president of the association and took up the duties of his office with a determination and zeal that at once marked him as a servant worthy of the confidence of his co-Iaboiers, as be proceeded to call the programme of the day. The value of Columbua day celebration in the schools proved to be a theme that awakened a great enthusiasm. The superintendent had taken great oiins to see that every school in the county should be provided with an official programme for Columbus day and in many instances had secured orators for the occasion.

As a result, Columbus day waa very generally observed over the county. The discussion of the topic was taken np with much spirit by M. E. Davis of district No. 17, ii.

J. Brethomver of No. 59, C. W. Corey principal of the Roca school, J.

I. Burwell principal of Wav-erly school, Piofesjor Wilson of the Western Normal college and Misses Crowel and Green. A. C. Guthrie of Emerald read a paper on the reading circle and its relation to the association.

He showed that be had made careful preparation and discussed the benefits to be derived by teaohers from systematic reading, which would qualify them to circulate among their leilows prepared to act intelligently on any occasion." Miss Mina Green of University Place followed with a well prepared paper on the same subjsct and urged the necessity of making the reading circle a topic for each association meeting and of inducing every teacher to belong tr the circle. Then followed a discussion inwhich C. W. Carey and J. I.

Burwell indulged in a faw pleasantries regarding the Nebraska BYStetn and the Pennsylvania system cf association work greatly to the entertainment of the listeners who seemed to have a decided preference for the Nebraska system. This closed the forenoon session and the association took au adjournment until 1:31) p.m. at which time the teachers again assembled. The attendance was better in the afternoon and every seat in the large hall was occupied, fully 120 teachers were present. rofesaor Caldwell of tne state university had been secured to talk on "The Educational Value of the Study of History." It would be unfair to the professor to attempt even a synopsis of his very scientific and yet interesting discussion of the study of history.

He showed very clearly that the study of history improves the faculties of memory, judgment, reason and imagination, and is the best possible means of teaching practical ethics. The lecture was listened to very attentively. The next paper was a recital of "The Common Errors of the Teacher," by C. W. Corey, Mr.

showed that he bad been a observer of his own methods in the school room as well as a critic of other teachers' works. He was followed by W. P. Sullivan, principal of the Bennett school. Mr.

Sullivan has had experience both as a teacher and as county superintendent and had made many observations of errors that the teacher had fallen into, such as repeated threats and failure to keep promises; failure of the teacher to acknowledge that he cannot answer a question propounded by the pupil; failure to attend teachers' associations and striving to follow theories of works on pedagogy instead of paying close atteution to the practical workings of the school. The papers were followed by 'ganeral discussion in which Mr. Burwell seemed to be the leading spirit. In the course of bia remarks he said the doctor of medicine studies his medical works and practices accordingly, the lawyer reads bis special works on law and carries the knowledge thus obtained into the practice of the law, and he saw no reason why the teacher should not read the standard works on pedagogy and carry on bis school work in harmony with the' principles therein learned. He therefor had no sympathy with that system of every fellow following his own notion regardless of authority.

This closed the programme of a very interesting se'sion and after transacting a little business pertaining to the membership of the association the teachers, adjourned. There was a fine display cf school work in the superintendent's apartments, there being quite a number of articles bearing cards representing a premium secured at the county fair at Hickman. Superintendent Corey of Fairbury schools was a pleasant visitor during the afternoon session. The musio was well conducted under the management of John J. Anderson.

Quite a number of the teachers purchased books precatory to taking up the work of the teacher's reading circle. President Anderson ts dignified and business like in his actions' before the association. REPUBLICAN RALLIES. University Place, Firth, and Waverly Turn Out Big Crowd. There was a rousing republican meeting in the hall at University Place last nijht which was addressed by J.

Strode and H.M. Bushnell. Delegations of republicans were present from Bethany Heights and Uavelock and much enthusiasm was manifest. Another big meeting occurred last night at Firth, which was addressed bv Hon. G.

M. Lambertson aod Hon. Tboal Darnell. Still another enthusiastic rally occurred at Waverly, where Hon. Tom Siajors spoke.

The strike of the telegraphers on the Gulf, Colorado Santa railroad, which the public supposed had been peacefully terminated, may possibly be renewed in a day or two, as bo final settlement of the dispute which led to the strike has been reached.

A hitch has occurred in the negotiations between 1). C.

Sign painters, portrait painters and sailmakers all take part in the manufacture of campaign banners. The two sides of a campaign banner ara easily made in stencil factories, but are very troublesome when done by band. The names and portraits are painted on muslin a. zed with glue, and the sign painter then paints the mottoes. When both sides are completed, one section is placed on the floor, painted side down, and over this a net is placed: then the o'cer part is fitted to this above the net, and the two parts are wed together with waxed thread by the eailmaker.

Banners range in price from $75 to $500, the cheaper ones bearing only the namsa and principles of the candidates, and having no portraits. There are three general sizes in banners fif by twenty feet, twenty by thirty feet and thirty by forty feet tne price being regulated mostly by the size. It takes about a week to make a banner.

E. Cobbey. Published by State Journal Company. Now Ready Tar Delivery. This work is pronounced by lawyet and judges to be far in advance of all previous compilations, especially in regard to correctness, convenience, an the thoroughness of its index.

The name of Consolidated Statutes is given it because of the order in which the taws governing various subjects are given For instance, the law go verning railroads, which heretofore has been scattered through the statutes, is altogether in one -chapter arranged in a logics order and under proper sub-head and ia followed by the law on street railways, and this is the rule on the other subjects. Some of ita other distinctive features are the consecutive numbering of the sections from 1 to 6220, the index and all references running by sections. The original coiie section numbers are also given so that no confusion can arise from this cause A colored leaf is inserted between the general laws and the) code for facility in reference to the code The plan of arrangement has" been to consolidate into one chapter, in their chronological order, all the acts of the legislature (not repealed) on that subject. The title of each act is Riven, when it became a law and the page of statute or sessional volume where found. Immediately after each section follows note showing how, when and where amended.

If amended, citations to decisions in the stale reports on that section, if any, and also to tha Aorthwestem Reporter when the came case is reported. Then follows the next act in order. Frequent notes are inserted showing tha connection or apparent conflict between different sections. The interior catch word system has been used. This is new in the west, but is the form adopted by the Cambridge press in their standard publications.

By it the prominent word or words In each section are printed in bold type, thut directing the eye at once to the subject of that section. The preliminary matter gives the treaty of union with Franca aud much other matter not heretofore readily accessible, and both the constitution of 1866 and 1875.1 An exhaustive index closes the book, which contains 1,809 pages. This book is an authorized and is used by judges of all the courts, and all state and county officers, hence becomes a necessity to all prao tioners and others who have need of the state statutes.
