- Back lo the chattel mortgage biz,
Back to your cent per cent;
' For Nebraska folk for the man from Polk
Ne'er an election meant.
Go slap your mortgage on the crib,
Make interest good and steep
-To pay for the fun of your useless run
For your boom has gone to sleep.
Back where the mortgage doth foreclose,
. And io per cent is squeezed;
On election day you will find the way
To sad defeat woll greased.
Foreclose your mortgage on the well,
And seize the old straw shed;
John Baldwin's scheme was an idle dream
And his plans knocked in the head.
Off with sanctimonious pose,
The bluff of the Pharisee;
For your oily game has gone dead lame
And your record marked " N. G."
Back to th' vaults of the Bank of Polk,
And weep not idle tears,
For the man from Hall has got a call
, To run this state two years.
The editorial writer of the Lincoln
Daily Star says I'm tho only one who
has uttered a word derogatory to tho
Star. Perhaps I'm the only one in the
'newspaper business who hasn't asked
for an exchange.
If you want honest men now's your chance,
Just vote for Charles Q. DeFrance,
For W. H. Thompson of Hall,
Smith, Powers, Jim Brennan and all,
And make the tax shirkers all dance.
If Nebraska voters play into the
hands of John N. Baldwin and his
crowd of tailroad bosses by voting for
Baldwin's man Mickey, wo may expect
a heavy influx of gold brick artists.
The election of Mickey would be notice
to the confidence men that a majority
of Nebraska's voters are " dead -easy."
The superintendent of tho Nebraska
City starch mills says the mills there
may be opened again if corn prices get
low enough to enable tho Nebraska
City mills to compete with eastern
starch mills. As all the starch mills

The Box Butto county voter who be

" Yes I'm going to spend the rest of
my day's in Europe," declared G. Otta
" What, going to desert the land of

Europe?" I thought you were too good

" It's because I am such an intense
lover of America and things American
that I'm going to spend the rest of my

American made goods, but naturally I

Republican tariff logic is wild, weird
and wonderful. It insists that a tariff
on steel stimulates competition and
makes steel cheaper, and at the same
time declares that a tariff on wheat pre
vents competition and brings the farmer
better prices for his wheat.
The man who votes to tax himself in
the shape of a protective tariff for the
benefit of the trusts exhibits about the
same grade of financial judgment ex
hibited by the little boy,
" My mamma gives meanickle every
time I take my medicine without holler
in'." " What do you do with your money?"
" Mamma puts it in a little iron
bank for me."

money you save ?"

There havo been a number of amus
ing episodes in the present campaign,
but one of the greatest jokes of tho
bunch was unwittingly played by a
Lincoln newspaper of tho twilight
variety. This newspaper recently de
voted a column of editorial space to
telling about the financial woes of
Mexico, declaring them to bo due
wholly to free silver. In the same
issue of tho paper appeared a page ad
vertisement offering Mexican lands as
"valuable premiums" to those who se
cured subscribers to the aforesaid pa
per. Tho Daily Star shows extreme good
sense and exhibits a political decency
heretofore almighty scarce in Lincoln
by a manifest inclination to treat Mr.
Bryan with the consideration duo to a
distinguished and exemplary citizen.
Tho Star sccma to bo conducted by
newspaper men who know how to
differentiate between a difference ot
opinion and vile abuse.
He roamed the earth to find a home
But not a place would suit
Until ho-chanced to wend his way
To glorious old Box Butte.
"Hurrahl" he cried, "a land like this
Great joy to my heart gives
And surely luck will come to him
Who in Alliance lives."
And in Alliance settled he
And straightway went to work;
He took an interest in the town
And never tried to shirk,
Ho worked with might and main to give '
Alliance proper rank,
And as the city grew he put
Much money in the bank.
A lesson for all citizens
These humble rhymes will show.
It is, " Just do your level best
To make Alliance grow,
Just put your shoulder to the wheel
And never pause nor lag.
'Tis better far to whoop things up
Than masticate the rag."
A few years ago republican editors,
orators and statesmen laughed at the
absurdity of the populist proposition
that the government accept state and
county bonds as security for govern
ment loans. The scheme was de
nounced as unconstitutional, absurd
and little short of treasonable.- But
Secretary Shaw has announced a
willingness to accept state and county
bonds as security for government loans
and the republican editors, orators and
statesmen are declaring that it is the
wisest financial move ever made by a
secretary of the treasury. Republican
logic recalls to mind the wonderful
snake described by tho Kentuckian:
It wriggled in and wriggled out
And left the people all in doubt
Whether the snake that made tho track
Was going south or coming back.
They had been talking of narrow
escapes and some of the stories were
corkers. Finally a heavy-set mau who
had remained quiet all the time spoko
up and said:
I've lived in Nebraska for upwards
of fifty years, and between Indians and
blizzards and drouths I've had some
almighty narrow escapes. But tho
narrowest one I ever had was a couple
of weeks ago."
"Tell us about it," exclaimed the
other members of the crowd in chorus.
"All right. I was squirrel hunting a
few weeks ago and saw three big fat
squirrels run up a tall stump and drop
into a hole in the top. I climbed the
stump and dropped down, thinking I
could get the squirrels and then climb
out without any trouble. To my hor
ror I discovered that I vas wedged
tight into the hols and couldn't move
an inch. I struggled and squirmed
until I was exhausted and then resigned
myself to my fate, knowing it was use
less to call for help. I tell you a man
face to face, with death thinks of an
awful lot of mean things he has done.
My thoughts flew fast and thick. All
at once I happened to recall the rail
road tax case in the supreme court, and
that reminded me that I had voted for
Frank Prout. Gentlemen, the recollec
tion made me feel 60 d d small I
crawled out of that hole without the
During his four years of service as
treasurer of Adams county, Dr. J. N.
Lyman covered into the county treas
ury as interest on county funds more'
money than all his predecessors in the
office had turned over, and more than
all the republican state treasurers cov
ered into the state treasurer. A vote
for J, N. Lyman for state treasurer is
a vote for honest administration of that
most important office.
I havo seen somo magnificent and
imprcssivo sights in my brief carcor. I
have stood within tho shadow of Pike's
Peak and gazed with awo at the snow
clad summit. I have watched tho
waters pour over tho precipice at Ni
agara and heard the sullen roar sound
ing like tho trump of doom. Hut the
most imprcssivo sight my eyes over be
held was in the Coliseum at Omaha on
Sunday, October 19th. It was the
communion service of tho great conven
tion of the Disciples of Christ. Twelvo
thousand earnest Christian men and
women Bat with bowed heads at tho
Lord's table and partook of tho em
blems telling of the broken body and
shed blood of tho Man of Nazareth
who gavo up his life that all men might
havo life eternal. Tho stillness of tho
gravo was over all. And in the silence
of that hour one could almost sec tho
awful scene on Calvary, tho cross, tho
agonized figure of the Christ, tho
wcepiug women, the careless soldiers
and tho frienzied andbloodthirsty mob.
To tho straining cars there seemed to
como an echo of that cry wrung from
tho depths of bitterest woe, "It is
finished." And the picture and the
echo would have been enough to make
sorrowful tho stoutest heart had there
not been a song of hope whose words
wore, "I am the resurrection and the
life; I16 that bclicvcth in me, though he
were dead, yet shall he live." And on
every Christian heart in that vast
audience faith took a new hold and
golden hope flashed a bright light into
the darkness of the tomb to show that
its terrors were forever gone because of
the great sacrifice of Jesus of Nazareth.
Those who witnessed and were a part
of that' solemn ceremony will never
forget it, and every man and woman
went forth from tho place better and
stronger for having been there.
There is a land of pure delight
Across old Jordan's wave,
Where politicians never como
Their country for to save.
Every Ncbraskan who is proud of
tho fact that the University of Ne
braska is one of the greatest state
universities in the country should re
member on election day that John H.
Mickey referred to it as a " hotbed of
atheism and the breeding ground of
infidels," and advised Christian parents
not to send their children there to be
educated. Yet John H. Mickey knew
that the chancellor of the University of
Nebraska, Dr. E. Benjamin Andrews,
is a Christian gentleman who insists
upon training tho morals of his students
while educating their minds.
If Charley DeFrance is elected audi
tor and he will be if the voters of Ne
braska vote in their own interests
there will be no juggling of the figures
in favor of pet insurance companies and

Marriage of II, K. Sclmrs una MIsb Illack.
We herewith reproduce The Kearney
Daily Hub's account of tho marriage of
our popular young townsman, II. K.
Schars, to Miss Black of that city. They
arrived in tho city Wednesday from their
wedding trip and will occupy apartments jn
Newberry building. Mr. Schars' largo cir
cle of friends will bo glad to welcome his
bride into their midst. The Herald joins
with them in tendering congratulations
and good wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Schars.
The following is the Hub's account:
Tho wedding of Miss Kathrine Mont
gomery Black, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Joseph Black, to Mr. Herbert Kingsley
Schars, son of Mr. and Mrs. P, F. H.
Schars, took place at the home of the
bride's parents 2020 Fourth avenue, Wed
nesday evening, October 22, at 6,30
o'clock, tho Rev. George Allen Beechor
officiating. The ceremony was witnessed
only by relatives of the bride and groom
and a few of their most intimate friends.
Tho bride was gowned in a very pale
pink silk 'crepe over white taffeta silk,
trimmed with lace and pearls and carried
a shower bouquet of Bride's roses. She
wore the glfu of the groom, a pearl ring
and a unique star pin of gold set with tiny
pearls, four large shag pearls, and an
amethyst. The groom wore full evening
During the congratulations following tho
ceremony and again later in the evening
Miss Finch played several selections on
At eight o'clock a reception was given to
about one hundred friends. Refreshments
were served by six young women who had
been closely associated with the bride
previous to her marriage; Miss Decker,
Miss Wait, Miss McGill, Miss Ray, Miss
Mary Ray and Miss Udell. Mrs. J, L.
Tout, Mrs. Arthur Scoutt and Mra. E. A.
Meservey assisted in the parlor, In an
adjoining room many gifts were displayed,
evidences of the high esteem in which Mr,
and Mrs. Schars are held by their friends.
The house was decorated with cut flowers,
palms and ferns. The dining room was
especially beautiful, being filled with
flowers and lighted by the subdued rays of
Out of town guest were Mr, W. F,
Black and Miss Anna Black of Central
City, Mrs. A. Fred Cole of Omaha, and
Mrs. Ellsworth Turney of Fairfield, Iowa.
Attended by a host of friends who show
ered white ribbons, rice, and good wishes
impartially, Mr. and Mrs. Schars left for
the west on the 10:20 U. P.
On all sides have been heard regrets at
the departure of the bride from Kearney,
as she has been closely associated with
Kearn6y young people. For two years she
was a teacher in the public schools. As
evidences of her popularity and the desire
of her friends to "speed her on her way,"
she was tho recipient of many "showers.
At Fairfied, Iowa, where previous to her
wedding she was visiting her sister, Mrs.
Turney, her friends, who correctly sur
mised, although they did not know that
she was soon to be married, gave her a
"tin shower." October 15 she was given
a "linen shower" by Miss Wait and Mrs.
E, A. Meservey of this city at the home of
the latter, On the 18 a "plate shower"
was given by Mrs. J. L. Tout, the bride-to-be
receiving many dainty pieces of china
from the fourteen friends present. Anoth

Wednesday evening, October 15, by Mrs.
Arthur Miller of 310 West Twenty-fifth
