.Many men think that nowspayer
men are persistent dunners. By way of
comdarison, let us suppose that a farmer
raises 1,000 bushels of wheat a year, and
sells this to 1,000 persons in all parts of
the cQuntryt a great portion of them
saying, I will hand you a dollar in
short time." The farmer does not want
to be small and says: "All right" Soon
the 1.000 busbel6 are cone, but he has
nothing to show for it, and he then
realizes that he has fooled away his
whole crop and its value to him is due
him in a thousand little driblets. Conse
quently, he iB seriously embarrassed in
his business, because his debtors, each
owing him one dollar, treat it as a small
matter and think it would not help much.

North Platte, Marth 5th, 1894.
Editok Tribcwe: "la a multitude of
words there is vanity, saith the preacher."
Thw suggestive passage of Holy Writ
occurred to sse whea I readrtbc ssTasioa
ot "An Engineer" in yoar issae of last
week. He however, to be a
sympathetic sort of a fellow, who feels
another's woe yea, one who would
relieve human suffering were it in his
power. He characterizes ray letter as
"able and witty." If it be, then a section
hand is not to be judged by tho size of
his shovel any more than by the coat he
wears; for in the various walks of life.
intellectual ability has masqueraded in
all manners of garbs, and section men,
as well as engineers, have attained high
positions, aad a few havo at one time
held them. "Necessity knows no law,"
and it is more honorable to dig than to
beg. I will call attention to two dis
crepancies in "Jiiugmeer s" letter regard
ing myself. He supposes I work on tho
section because I "love that kind of
work." This is not so, for I distinctly
Btated, poverty compelled me to accept
tho menial employment, and I will be
ndebtcd to any ono who will aid mo to
better. CAgain, whether it takes more
brains to manipulate a shovel than it
does to guide "a mighty machine." I
simply questioned whether more brains
are required to run an engine than to
keep a track in order that is, lay out
and maintain a road-bed; for tho welfare
of a whole system depends upon its effi
ciency. However, "Engineer's" ambi
guity of statoment is of little consequence
Byron states that the lirst man who
ventured to mid ocean in a ship must
have had a soul of steel, but I think tho
first man who ran "a mighty machine"
at tho rate of seventy miles an hour must
have had one of brass of a very good
quality. Nerve and reckless daring too
often characterize tho average engineer,
and it is the danger attending the avoca
tion that commauds high pay, and not
altogether the skill required
not only work on tho section here, but
they run engines and build them too iu
Italy, that sunny land, for centuries the
seat of science and art. A Chinaman
should not be deprecated because he is a
Chinaman, no, nor because he becomes a
section hand, and it says little for a
christian community that Chinamen
have been beaten, abased and murdered
whilo seeking to make a living in this
land of ours where all men aro free and
On the U. P. system ihore are Swedes,
Danes, Norwegians, Germans, Irish,
Scotch and English on engines; some
firing, others running, and why an
Italian or Chinaman of ordinary intelli
gence and sufficient practice could not
guide "a mighty machine" is another
question. Certainly, education is not a
vital requisite, as a glance through the
public he invites criticism, and must
not be offended ii ne gets it.
In the first account "An Engineer"
submits are shoes, $9.25; assessment on
insurance, Slb.io; broken glass, 1.4U;
doctor, $3.90; hay for that cow, H3Q;
dry goods and clothing, $8.55. This
amounts to $44.15. Now in all fairness
An Engineer" cannot say that this
stntemont is a fair sample of his monthly
expenditure, or that the above items
occur every month. This waa what Ib
called "a heavy month, and is therefore
exceptional. The most contemptible
item in the bill is the one lor "a new bat
for wife, $1.25." If any woman on God's
footstool deserves a nice stylish hat or
dress (if at all procurable) it iB the wife
ot a working man. ll tnere are cnua
ren in the family, Bbe is too often a
drudge. From early morning to late at
night her work is incessant. A man has
his regular hours for labor, but there are
nono for the wife. She is the gin-horse
ot the household, and deserves every
kindness nnd encouragement, and a $1.25
hat my wife feels certain would fail to
provoke either the envy or the admira
tion of her lady friends.
I have some hope of a man when he
cuts his garment according to his cloth,
and that "An Engineer" has done this
the statement submitted last week's
shows. His grocery bill is greatly re
duced; the music teacher is fired, and
the "dry cow" is heard of no more; still
there is a $16.70 for real estate taxes
which will not occur ngain for another
year. Also $8.00 for insurance, which
added to that of last month makes
$24.75. He must be a very much in
sured man worth a great deal more

I feel proud North Platte has a speci

he keeps his health and avoids accidents.
In a day or two he will be able to visit
tho bank, but let him at all times keep
an eye on the cents, for they make the
dollars, and are the little mice that
nibble at one's income. He will com
out ahead, and may yet have "the glori
ous privilege of being independent."
Converted (?) Jews, are not so much
needed to tell people how to prepare for
death, as some one is required to tell
people kow to live economically how to
live according to the laws ot their being,
and make the best of the circumstances
in which they are placed. This life is a
reality, and a stern one to such as I.
"As a man sows, so shall he reap."
Nature waits for no hell to punish the
disobedient. Sho is inexorable. Every
act has its consequences. A man can
not spend $5.C0 a month in cigars and
save it, any more than he can Jbrew a
bushel of barley and bake the same into
bread. Shonld one live beyond his in
come the result is ruin. My income is
certainly small, and it takes it all, but
had I a pay liko "An Engineer" I think
I could live and dress well, and save half.
I feel sorry if my criticism has offended
him. We have threshed the subject
pretty well out between us, and I think
have illustrated the old adage, that "one
half tho world does nrt know how tho
other half lives." ' Very truly yours,
