Tho 18th of August will soon bo hero, and before it comes wo wish to sny another word to tho great number of teachers who aro coming to help us make this institute ti success. Do many of you stop to think what wo mean by tho word success! 1 Before beginning any undertaking wo have n definite object in view—a cot- tain something wo wish to accomplish; and until that something has been reached and made our vory own wo havo not succeeded. We havo not planned this institute simply because it is customary to hold un institute onco a year, but because wo wish to accomplish certain results; and if we find your little boys and girls standing with folded hands, staring into vacancy and counting "one, two, throe, four, five," without as many objects to look at and handle; if wo flnd you, with a first or second reader in youv hands, telling them what to call every second word when wo visit your school next winter, wo shall fool that wo failed, no matter who said it was a success. To tho younger teachers I wish to say, you cannot teach what you do not know. Then come to tho institute with tho determination to learn tlio principle itself, also tlio best method of teaching it to others. Note how tho instructors present it to you and try to present it to others in a similar way. To tho older teachers I would say that always there aro new ideas to be gotten regarding tlio oldest and most common things. Como to tlio institute with eyes nnd ears alert for new ideas, nnd then strive to use them when this institute shall bo a thing ol tho pust. During the spring u lady said to mo: If you have an institute, Miss Carey, I do hope you will do something that will cause tho teachers to do better public schools, plate glass fronts, tho penitentiary, tho street cars, privato residences, telegraph office and every building that had a piece of glass in it the festive hailstone hunted it up and loft its destructive murk.

Tho documents filed consist of Judgo Cook's argument, Dr. McCoy's reply, and tho decision of the board. Tho petition alleges that the roods have not obeyed that decision, and tho court is asked to step in. Although tho subject of this case is not such as to cause much excitement, tlio papers are very spicy. Judge Cook, in commenting on the original cause of tho petition, took occasion to remark: "When tho true inwardness of tlio petition is learned I believe it will bo found to havo originated with some ono whose personal grievance is that ono ot the roads is trying to got along without employing him as a sort of general advisor, and give him for such services an annual pass."

Tho council have advor Used for bids on tho plant. They hold a meeting Friday evening, hoard Mr. Turner, tho Emmetsburg contractor, ordered him to prepare plans to bo done Aug. 15, and advertised for all bids to bo in Aug. 30. Tho bids will bo on two plans, one for a tank and ono for a gtandpipc. Tho tank is to hold 2,000 barrels and stand on a support 75 foot high. Tho standpipo is to bo 12J feet through and 100 foot high. Tho council by vote expressed a preference for tho tank. All tho water in a tank is up whore it comes through tho pipes witR pressure, besides tho tank is cheaper. On tho other hand a standpipe is much moro durable. They will decide when tho bids are in. Tho official action was expressed in two resolutions: Moved and supported that tho city solicitor bo Instructed to advertise for bids for water works plant for tank system, tho tank to contain 2,000 barrels, anil stand on a tower T5 feet hsgh, and also for tho stond- ilpo system, tho sUmdpipe to bo 12>{ foot -• ' • •• "•" •--' ' '-;h, each system .,«*/ >UU u ui o.~ .ncli mains, and deep well pumps ami engine and pump house.

Suld plans anil specifications to bo ready by Aug. 15, IS'JO. Mr. Turner is the man who has put in tho works at Emmetsburg, and is a contractor of long experience. It is tho purpose of the council as soon as tho contract is lot to have tho engine and pump put in at once and give tho well a thorough test while tho other work is going on. There is no doubt that the water is there, but it will require a test with a heavy pump to do- to tho fact that the judgo has appeared on both sides of tho legal question, refers to tho "lachrymose condition" of his feelings, and then to "our very learned lawyer, Cook, who admits that it is no trouble for him to stultify himself on any case if a sufficient inducement is ottered." Tho doctor closes his argument with a partngi thrust. "J. C. Cook is evidently ns far wide of tho mark in his estimate of the business men of our city as ho is in his other estimates. It Is impossible for a man of his vacillating views to measure men of moral worth and stability by himself. Of course such measure would bo unjust to them."

Obstreperous Cow Hoys. Sheriff Stephens was up in Swoa and adjoining townships last week to attend to tho cow hoys. Ono in particular, named Cummings, lias boon a terror several years, bringing in herds from Oskaloosaand thereabouts. This season tlio cattle havo boon driven on hay land, over ploughed ground, and where- ever it came handy regardless of private Interests. Several sections of lino hay hind have been herded iu spite of orders to got off, Capt. .Toiinson and Bill Gallion being chief sufferers. On complaint to the county attorney they wore instructed to take up tho slock and have the damages assessed, but on several trials gave that up, as tlio cowboys could drive tho cattle back faster than they could got them out. Accordingly the shorlit was called out, and after a day's work 40 head of ono herd, and 22 of ano.thor, besides a riding pony and some other traps, were socurod. After much bluster and many throats ono herder paid $50 and got his slock. But at last accounts tho other refused to settle with Capt. Joanson and his stock are being hold till tho trustees assess tho damages. He will probably pay in time, ana know after this that Kossuth is u poor county for cow boy pruuks. _ Put Ui> or Shut Ui>.

The cattle thief, whose doings woro given brielly last week and who was captured in Chicago by Sheriff Wholan of Ksthorvillo, escaped tlirouy I) a failure of tho requisition to arrive at Chicago in time. The judge gave the sheriff 24 hours to get his evidence but failed and young Hoswell escaped. ho It is said ho got tho $8,000 also, for which ho sold the cattle, if true it marks tho success of ono of tlio cheekiest and most daring swindles over attempted. A report from Greene county, whore the cattle came from, says: " It has just been learned hero that tho herd of cattle shipped from Emmet county to Chicago by II. C. and Geo, lloswell woro principally from this county, and it is causing quite a stir among tho farmers. The heaviest loser is II. 1'aup, 40 head of four-year-old steers. ,T. E. Moss, D. M. Moss, J.

Tho Boswolls were formerly residents of this county and havo always borno a good reputation, and could havo given bond for any amount to secure return of cattle had it been asked for." Boswell was known all over Emmet and tho north part of this county. Tho Bancroft Register gives a report of his doings in its town: " Win.

Kftvii pleinents of household use whoso utility has been forgotten, and rude letters or gym-, bols that only await some Rusctti stone to reveal a whole history of the dead and mysterious pust. Now for u picture of u home of the cliff dwellers. Jutting out from the main body of a mountain range is a high tableland, lovol, barren, and unattractive except for the peculiar outline of its perpendicular sides, which rise abruptly from tho great sandy plain below to a height of from 1,500 to 3,000 feet. As you view this plateau from ft distance it looks ns though this tableland, at one time, had been the valley, and thut some vast river hud cut its way through, leaving tho perpendicular bank on one sido, and wholly tearing away all of the rest of tho country for miles around uud reducing the whole to a much lower lovel. Upon close examination this perpendicular side has much the appearance of having been water worn, and the soft, reddish sandstone which lies in the strata from two to twenty feet in thickness between layers of harder rock is worn away much more than tills harder formation, thus leaving projecting shelves uud deep cuts along tho mountain sido, all of which lio parallel with tho valley below. Tho top portion of tho mountain side being composed of igneous rocks and lava, is still less worn uwuy, hence the top projects ovor the side below, and us the side gradually recodes from top to bottom, tho overhanging rocks ubovo completely protect from rain aud storm and fulling rocks ull tho sido immediately below it. As you stand in the plain bolow and look upon this (rrcut, towering, almost perpendicular sido you can plainly sco thut there ure great shelves running along the aide, uud that tho shelves are of u different formation than tho intervening rock. It is into this intervening stratum thut the cliff dwellers cut out rooms, nnd on the outer edge of tho shelf built up u wall of udobe brick extending from the shelf foundation below to the ovcrhungiug sholf ubovo, anil thus made large and commodious rooms, some being SO or -10 feet long by 10 to 20 feot deep, and tho ceiling from seven to 13 feet high uccqrding to tlio space botweou tho two hard strata of rock. Where tho natural shelving was vory narrow the spucu was widened by cutting back into tho soft sandstone, leaving partitions of Btono between the rooms. Tliia spaco botweou the outer wall und tho rooms was a common hallway running the whole length of tho cliff and off from this liullway were tho separate rooms. Into the sides of many of the rooms ui'o cut uii'lius used ns shelves, uud into the lloor was sot u hard stono hollowed out, In which tho corn wus ground with u pestle. In the ailobo wall openings were left for. light and air, and the murks of lire wore still visible ut largo openings, which hud probably been the family hearthstone of some auulont household. Access to these dwellings wua hud by iiieuns of u uurrow footpath which ran up the fueo of the cliff, being ubout throo feet wide ut tlio bottom uud tapering to the surface ubout u foot above tho head. This path was not cut in onu continuous Hue, but from shelf to sholf, und utter rouuhliig u shelf you hud to hunt for tho path ubove, which wua not readily found by u stranger. As u pluoo of safety from uu enemy it mviBt have boon perfect In its day, for there ure many sharp turns uud narrow places whore u muu with u convenient elub could defy u whole regiment with bayonets, for ho could stuud completely protected bohlnd some »hiirp turn uud strike down tho enemy one by one or push him over tho preolpluo us ho oumo into view. Uy reuson of u grout landslide Iu llio mountain tho houses wo visited liuvo boon wholly inaccessible uud the proHOiit Indians knew nothing of their exlvtouee, so that their discovery is of re cent occurrence, and u puth had to be eut iu the mountain at uu oxpouditure of great luboi 1 und considerable luanuy. As wii went along the lodge uud pusgod by iill the rooms ou tUut shelf wo cuuio t» another break iu the Bide of the mountain, und ieokUig across tho cUww sonio 800 or 400 feet, we could wee tho suuiw extended cUff with Us i'o/$us on tho ether sWo, u,ud it W»* re^ly u port of. the 8,b,elt ou \vufyUwe hut no jfrhite w»V tei*» over bep. u lately found in the rooms wo visited. All articles of pottery, ornaments, cloth, grain, pieces of metal, bones, and in fact tho ashes and every movable thing have been caro- fully preserved, along with ollicra of like kinds found in other places. By reason of tho drynoss of tho atmosphere and protection from the wind and storm and all kinds of enemies tho relies have been kept In a degree of preservation thut IB almost as wonderful as tho relies themselves. From our elevation we could ace stretched across tho sand of tho desert n long, dim lino or mound of dirt, with lateral branches at right angles, that is supposed to have been an ancient irrigation ditch that brought the water from the mountains and made a garden of what is now a picture of desolation. While much speculation and uncertainty sm-rounda these dwellings, their great Interest centers iu their contents, which at onco lead ua back to an ago and civilization as widely separated from that of tho present Indian of that country as it is from our own. Whether these cliffs were common dwelling houses or only used In case of war ua places of refuge, or whether they were granaries and storehouses In which provisions wcro placed against u famine, or whether they were ante retreats of roviui' bands of mauruders, or the peaceful hc.meu of un agricultural people are u few of the unsolved questions thut hnvo arisen in the effort to Hud the true solution of tho mystery thut us yet surrounda these cliff dwellings uud their curioua and multitudinoua contcnta. Whatever else may bo said of them thero is no controversy over their great antiquity and that they are in no way connected with the present race of Indians. Whether- these ancient peoples were the unccstorsof the Aztec, Toltec, Tuui, or Pueblo Indians, or were moro undent than them all is not yet determined, but they evidently enjoyed the advantages of a civilization far superior to the present members of any of the above mentioned tribes. Judged by their works, tho cliff dwellers belong to the same race thut have left similar evidences of their civilization in Mexi co, Central uud South America. Space warns me that there is no opportunity here to eutor into an account of the relics found, or any speculation of those undent peoples who huve mauifcated so much skill and au- gncity in selecting and building such per- munent nnd aecure homea as we find in the rocks and cliffs of these desert mountains.
