Total number of pupils enroled, eleven. Average daily attendance, six and a half. Those not tardy during the term. Ruth Hall and Alvah Mall. BLANCHE E. HENLEY, Teacher. Mr. A. (£. Cornish, a former resident of Kossuth County who is now living at Crowley, Louisiana, in a recent letter to the REPUBLICAN indicates his intention to leave Louisiana and locate in Nebraska. Mr. Cornist's objection to Crowley is due to the general shiftlessness and lack of public spirit upon the part of the people. Crowley is a town of 500 inhabitants and does not support a public school. At a recent election the people voted on the question of levying a live mill tax to build a school house and the school house • was""defeated nearly three to one. Mr. Cornist is a Northern man ami likes the atmosphere of the public school. We don't wonder that he wants to get out of that country. The lectures gJven by Mrs. Bessie Starr Kiefer ut the Congregational church last Thursday and Friday evenings were decidedly good ones. The attendance, however, was rather light. Mrs. Kiefer is a good speaker and holds her audience in rapt attention. She is also a hard worker in the temperance field. The object of her coming here was to revive CJood Templary and build up a new lodge. Her efforts did not meet with the desired success, but enough was clone to call a meeting for next Friday evening in the M. E. church for the purpose of completing such an organization. Let all the friends of temperance turn out and , raise Algoua to the position she once held—thatoif having the largest Good. Templar lo<Jge of any city in the state.
