Speaking of tho low salaries paid
leinalo teachers Dr. lligbee says :
Wo regret that there should be, on
the part of our school directors, any
such falso economy. Thero should bo
no discrimination in salaries except
that winch is based upon merit. I n
mary instruction is the most difficult
work of tho schools. It must bo of tho
most thorough character if tho eubsc
queut educationul work is to besuoccss-
tul. Wherever it is eiheiently donp,
it should reocivo its proper remuner
ation. To discriminate against it, is to
make the foundation of the building
weak at tho peril ot tho wholo super
structure. Salarios hero should bo
greatly increased to 6ecuro tlm very
highest talent attainable, anil such in
crease will be found lo add to the
wages of our fornalo teacher''. Their
averago monthly salary, excluding
rhlladelphta, is now only twenty-nine
dollars and iorty-ouo cents. This is by
far too small for good and efficient
teachers, an 1 quite too largo tor poor
ones, if measured by educational re'
Ho advocates an increase in the
length of term and tho salaries of teach
crs, and suggests that tho Btato make
larger appropriations to tho schools,
He also suggests that the Legislature
should require ovory school board to
appoint an oflicor, whose duty it shall
bo to take a census every yeir ot all
children of school ago in tho district ;
of all who attend scluol, and those
who do not. This, reported to iho de

Letter frbm Omaha
I retiirnul la-t week from Urokcn
Bow, Custor county, N -braika, whith
er BiOiop Worihinglon had sent inoto
organize n mislnn. Thinking that
many of your ri ndcrs would Im inter
tsied in what I might write about this
mlsdonary journey, I cnd you this,
with tho lequest that you consign It to
tho wato basket if you do not think it
of sulllijicnt interost'lo publish.
Cmior i.'ouniy is one if tho largest
comities in tho state Urer than the
whole stato of lihoil" Maud and nl
most as largo as Hh nlo Island and
Delaware togi ther. Bxikeu Biwisin
llie centre of tlm con ty . and is the
county seat. The town derives its
name from an affuir of honor betwien
two Iiinisns. In thu contest which
was waged for iho hand of a fair In
dian maiden, tho vanquished warrior
broke his bow at tho critical moment
and so loH his prize. It is only fair
that ihe poor Indian and his broken
bow should be thus immortalized, as
thu other fellow walked off with
his heuttless liana-.
This town has hud a most remark
able, growth. Tho only building on
the pusent town slto in 1882 was a
sod house, tho only onu tor miles
around, and which is clill used as a
priming i llicc by tho Custer county
J(c))iioitcaii. When the county was
organized, tho place was chosen ,s the
county sc"U mid by tho end of 188
hail grown to a small village. JiH
spring it began to "boom" and since
tho first engiiio entered the town in
August last, its growth lias been mar
volloii". It now numbers a population
ol 2500. There aro f mr bank-, three
largo hotels, a fino public school build
ing and two churches. Business houses
and (Iwellings are going up rapidly
oven in December, for tho winter so
far has been mild and sunny with only
ono storm worth mentioning. The
Lincoln Land and Improvement Com
pany has bought all tho land surround
ing the town, has laid it out in lots
and is now selling thorn at a largo pro
fit. I was surprised to fi d so many peo
ple of intelligence and culture in a town
so new. I held services in the Opera
IIuso morning and evening a-id after
tho evening service organized the par.
lsh. At tho earnest solicitation of the
people I remained with them toi sever
al days and on MomUy morning start
ed i subscription list for the building
of a chinch edifice. Bv Tuesday even
ing I had secured seven hundred and
sixty dollais in subscriptions and five
of tho most valuable lots, centrally lo
cated on the highest elevation of tho
town site, large enough for a church,
rectory and parish buildings. A church
will bo built to cost about 1500 and
io is suprising what a pretty building
can bo put up out here for that money.
But the Bishop buys most of the
material at the lowest wholesale prices.
Dining my visit I diovo forty miles
over the prairie to tho ranch of an Eng
lish cattle king who wauttd his child
baptized. In all that dista'ce there
were no houses but sod houses and
straw sheds for cattle. It raado me
think of the comfortable home of tho
Pennsylvania farmer. A few years,
however, will change all this and tho
frontier farmer ol Nebraska will bo as
comfortable as his brother in the Hast
and can bo the proud owner ol a faun,
which for productivene-s, cannot be
surpassed anywhere iu the world.
On my way to the ranch 1 stopped
for a short lime at tho sod himso of a
Jir. Maxwell. I soon learned that ho
"had emigrated from Pennsylvania and
that his wife in foinu-r jears knew
man people in and around Blooms
burg and Xillville. I need not say
that sho was glad to s- o me; that but
faintly oxpressi s it. I also encounter

Merowtllo Appraiser's Duties.
Auditor General Niles has isucd
tho following instructions to county
commissionets :
By the 12lh section of tho aot ot

missioners of each county to appoint
the appraiser of mercantile taxes on or

1. iho appraiser shall personally

kind or nature, (including liquors,) all
stock brokers, bill brokers, exchange

facturers, venders, agents, or other per
sons engaged in the salo of any nos
trums, medical compounds, or patent
medicines, whether pills, powders, mix
tures, or in any form whatsoever.
II. Tho appraiser shall then rato
.oul assess all dealers and venders as
above enumerated, in accordance with
existing laws, and shall give to each
person whom ho shall assess, or to

where tho business rated is carried on,
a written or printed notice, specifying

III. Tho appraiser shall furnish to
the county trcasuier a certified list of

V. In accordance with recent do
cisions of tho Supreme Court, dealers
in live stock aro exempt from payment
ot mercantile tax, and thev must not
bo Assessed. By tho decision of tho
samo court, it has boon determined that
butchers who sell meat of animals they
uavo slaughtered aro not liablo to tho
payment of mercantile tax, consequent'
ly they must not bo asscssoJ. Those
butchers, however, who purchase cattlo
killed and dressed, and sell tho moat,
aro properly liable to payment of mer
cantile tax and should bo assessed.
Care should be taken by tho apprais

The It 'publican Legislative caucus
at Hariisburg on Wednesday tho 5th
nominated Matthew Stanley Quay for
United Stales Senator by a vote of
151 to 9 for Galusha A. Grow. A
resolution was adopted constituting a
o iinmilteo to frame a bill regulating
freight charges on railways within the
Sluto and report it to a futuro caucus,
but Senators Watres, Qobin, Osborne
and Macfarlano opposed tho resolution
until they wero assured that the action
of tho caucus would not bind them to
oiippnrt the b 11 when it comes up in
legislative session. Opposition was
also developed to tho second clause of
tho proposed liquor prohibition con
stituiional amendment, which provides
compensation to propcrty.-ownfrs and
tenants whoso business may Buffer from
the adoption of tho amendment, and
again tlio ruling was raado that tlio de
cision of tho caucus could not control
the action of individuals, whereupon
ho resolution was passed to appoint a
committee to take iho bustuess in
So well wero the pins set up bv the

that even "Pig Iron" Kelly couldn't

Thero was a feeblo attempt at kicking
against tho ring, but it was ineffectual
Iiopresentativo True, of Susque
hanna, placed Galusha A. Grow in
nomination and left to Mr. Owens, of
Huntingdon, tho work of loading tho
inefftctual opposition to Quay. Mr.
Owons detailed with much earnestness
and at considerable longtb tho qualifi
cations which ho thought requisite for
tho colleaguo of Mr. Cameron in tho
Senate and contended that these wero
possessed in an eminent degree by a
gentleman whom ho proposed to nom
inate. Without mentioning the namo
of his candidate ho went on to depre
cate in an indirect way tho tyranny of
caucus rule. He argued that bis candi
date was one who personified tho ideal
which had been "boosted" by the Phila
delphia J'ress, but which that journal,
in its subserviency to paity, had sub
sequently ignored. Ho finally men
tioned the name of William D. Kelloy,
of Philadelphia. If any gentloman
present wore a brass collar, ho said, he
appealed lo them to sever it, and it
bound by a Bilken leash to assert their
manhood and make personal fitness tho
test for publio oftico.
Tho voto was then taken and result
ed in 154 for Quay and 9 for Grow.
Those voting for Grow wero Senators
Lines and Meredith and Representa
tives Dougherty, Elliot, Seamens,
Johnson, Hughes, True and Maxey 9.
Those not voting were Senator Emory
and Representatives Oivons, Davis and
Tohuney. During tho roll-call Mr.
Owens votod for Mr. Kelloy, but sub
sequently withdrew his voto, remark
ing that a single voto for that gentle
man might bo construed to his pro
iudlco. Mr. Truo, who had presonted tho
name oi jur. urow, movod to make the
nomination of Quay unanimous, which
was agreed to without dissent.

Murdered for Money.
TUP. lIOIlitllll.E CONIT.'SION 01' A
James Edward Nowlin, who was ar
rested in connection with the murder
of Georgu A. Codman, last week at
Lexington, Mass., has made a full con
fission. He sold ho was the only ono
concerned in the murder, and tho other
prisoners havo been discharged.
Nowlin states that ho was entirely
alono and did tlio deed unaided. He
had been thinking of it for somo days,
incited thereto by Codraan's boastful
way ol showing monoy, and expected
lo secure about SCoO, with which ho
intended to loavo that part of tho
country. He killed Codmau in tho
stable at about 2 o'clock in thu morning
by coining behind him and stabbing
him In tho Bido ot tho neck with a
butcher's knife. Ho severed an artery
and Codman fell to tho floor, dving al
most instantly. Ho then put tho body
under a hleigh, covered it up and went
on his milk route, taking his brother
Willi him. Ho returned about 11
o'clock, put up his team and went to
dinner. After dinner ho wont to tho
stable, cleaned up tho traces of tho
crime as well as ho could and then de
liberated as to tlio disposition of tho
body. He finally decided to take it
away in tho sleigh and secreto it some
where until ho could safely get rid of it.
Iln r-onsideied the weight of tho
body, and to make it easier to handle
and to hido the traces of his ghastly
work ho concluded lo dismember it,
This ho did with an axo. Before
starting ho tidied things up in tho
stable, destioying what ho could of the
marks lett alter ins roiign moao oi
dissection. Ho concluded then to se
cure tho money for which ho had com
mitted the horrible criuv, and started
ff with the body m hw sleigh for
Codman's boaiding-house. He left
the team standiug a fow doors from
the house and then went in, telling tho
landlord that Codman was going away
tor an indefinite lime with a mau and
had sent him for bis money and other
things. He was allowed to go up to
Codman's Foopi to get articles of op
parol and from thore hf earned off tho
tho desk containing about 8175 in
money and other articles of value. Ho
returned to tho team and drovo off
toward Lexington.
After driving awhilo he began to
realize tho enormity of his crime and
became more and moro frightened as
as he drovo along, imagining that all
who saw him knew of the dreadful
burden ho was carrying. His fears
worked so muoh upon him that when
ho came to a lonely part of the road
and was free from observation ho took
tho body out of the sleigh and, half
frenzied by his fear of detection, seiz
ed the axo and chopped tho head off
and smashed iho face until ho thought
it would bo unrecognizable, llo then
threw tho head and an arm over a wall,
returned to tho road, lifted tho body
into the sleigh and started off again.
After driving about a railo and a
half he again alighted and throw the
body into some shrubbery, whero it
was afterwards found. Thu left leg he
secreted in somo bushes near by. His
hideous mbsioii occupied about four
hours in its consummation.
Amplo evidence of the crime was
found when tho polico searched tho
stable, Nowlin's attempts to wash away
the stains having been ineffectual. In
tho middle of the floor was a largo
space which had been lcccntly washed.
In another placo an axe was found.
Tho murderer is a handsome young
fellow, littlo over 17 years old, and is
very intelligent looking. He is one of
four brothers, who residoin Soraerville.
While nothing really bad is kuown of
iho brothers, they have tho repntatiou
of being hot-blooded and wild. The
father of the family, it is stated, hang
ed himself in tho penitentiary.
Seoretsry Lamar Married.
Secretary Lamar was married at 10
o'clock on the flth at tho residence of
the brido by Hev. William Park, of
Sandersvillc, to Mrs. William S. Holt,
of Macon, Georgia.
Mrs Lamar is a daughter of tho late
James Dean, of Macon, and iu early
life was one of tho bcautie? of the
South. Sho grew to womanhood among
tho feudal liko institutions which flour
ished in that section heforo tho war,
and was courted and loved by half tho
sops of tho neighboring planters. Sur
rounded by every luxury that wealth
could buy, sho was not eager to yield
her heart to any man. The two most
prominent, as well as most persistent,
suitors for her favor wero Mr. Lamar
and tho late Judge Holt, whose efforts
secured the favor of tho parents and
gained tlio consent of tho maid and tho
two wore finally uniti-d in marriage.
After mourning for soveral years, Mr.
Lamar also married, and, though both
wore faithful to their marriage vows,
it is said that each cherished the mem
ory of tho other through life. The palo
student, with his intellectual face,
crowned by its masses of dark curling
hair, who had taught her in his wooing
tho courses of the stars, held an inter
est to Mrs. Holt that not even her
wealthy and devoted husband had, and
when he died aud the wife of tho Sec
retary ww also laid to rest, tho two
turned to each other without reserve.
At tho time of General Unit's death
he was tho head of a Georgia railway
company and ono of tho richest men in
that section. His vast wealth was be
queathed to his widow who, iu turn
has carefully guarded it and added to
it by Bhrewd investment. Two children
of her first marriage still survivo and
it was their opposition to tho second
union lhat Is said to havo occasioned
its postponement last summer. Al
though over 48 years old Mis. Lamar
has preserved her youthful beanty to a
remarkable degree, and with her tact,
intolligcnco and graco will preside over
Mr. Lamar's Washington home with
dignity and eao. Liko most of tho
honest men at tho capital tho Secretary
is not wealthy, and tho addition to his
fortuno which his wife will bring will
enable him to entertain far more gcu
erously than ho has ever done hereto
fore. Mrs. Lamar has passed several
winters at Washington and Is cordially
liked by tho many in offioial lifo.
