Owing to the fact that the services of a
United States Land Commissioner have
been greatly in demand since the passage
of the new homestead bill, I have decided
to again attend to all kinds of business
before the United States land office
Having had several years' experience in
the work, all matters will receive proper
and prompt attention. Homestead filings,
final proofs, contests, etc., can be made
before me at any place in the land dis
tricts in which the lands desired are
located. I will also visit points between
Broken Bow and Crawford upon request.
Any violation of the land laws or irregu
larities of governmental acts will receive
the proper attention when reported to
me. T. J. O'Keefe,
United States Commissioner
for the District of Nebraska.

The home of Mrs. G. V. Riddle was
the scene of a surprise party given last
Friday evening in honor of Miss Birdie
Tilotson, by a goodly number of
friends belonging to the Queen Esther
society and the Epworth League. Miss
Tilotson had informed her friends that
she expected to depart for Mitchell for
future residence, and on this account
the gathering was planned to bid her
farewell. The evening was one of
much enjoyment, the time being
spent in social games until a late hour
when refreshments of fruit, etc., were
served. Miss Tilotson-was one of the
most efficient workers in both these so
cieties and will be greatly missed by
her young associates in church circles,
but all bid her God-speed in her new
field of labor.

The serial story, "Darkest Russia,"
by the well known author, H. Grattcn
Donnelly, found its concluding chapter
in last week's Herald." We .have had
an opportunity during the course of its
publication, to realize the worth of the
story among our readers, who in several
instances wrote to this office for copies
which were cither lost or mislaid, stat
ing that they were anxious to get the
whole story. Now we have secured
another interesting serial, which be
gins in this issue, entitled, "Squire
John." This is a tale of the Cuban
war and like the story just finished
treats of historical facts framed in the
best literary style by the well known
author, St. George Hathhorne. Every
subscriber of The Hukai.d should read
the new storv.
The republican rally or rather speech
making took place at the opera house
last night and The Hekalu is willing
to concede that the house was crowded.
People came from near and far to hear
the speakers propound the doctrine of
Hamilton. But when the names of the
present national standard bearers of
that party were mentioned there was a
noticeable lack of strenuous spontainity
of enthusiasm and the principal speaker
of the eveuing, Hon. Horris Brown,
candidate for attorney general, felt the
disappointment keenly, for he hesitated
long in order to allow the audience to
give 'way to an outburst that never
bursted. The speaker is an attorney
and duccdly clever in proving the merit
of his argument. Mr. Brown tried to
explain away republican responsibility
of the iniquitous revenue law by stat
ing that the fusion legislature under
Gov. Povnter failed to rectify the error
while in control of the government.
But the speaker failed to explain that
it was impossible to repeal said law
owing 'to the fact that the railroad
lobby, through the republican members
and two or three fusion representatives
who had been "fixed," blocked all
progress. This was the secrot of the
dilemma that was not explained. Mr.
Brown also forgot to explain why the
cost of running the state government
the last four years was ONE MILLION
SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND DOL
LARS more than during the previous
four years under fusion management.
Aside from the usual blessings good
crops and big potatoes grown in west
ern Nebraska as a result of republican
rule there was little said, and Gov.
Mickey with all his blemishes was left
to fight his own battle in Box Butte.
