A lady asks how to make hens
lay in winter. , Tliis is a subject to
which I have "given considerable
thought. The eggs a hen lays dur
ing the hot summer days, when
filed away for future reference, are
so inclined to lose their self respect
on or prior to the winter months
that they frequently remind one of
the deficit in the gold reserve and
other melancholy events. I have
often thought how much pleasanter
it would be to eat a nice, fresh,
highly esteemed egg- than to be
compelled to swallow one about
which the odor of neighborhood
scandal has hung for several
months. I have seriously con
sidered the subject in all its bear
ings. I have tried to reason from
a lien's standpoint, to put myself
in sympathetic relation with a hen's
train of thought, so to speak, and
thereby ascertain what line of ar
gument one ought to take to con
vince hens of thelmportance of a
radical change in their social and
moral life. A hen, you sce.has consci
encious scruples against raising a
large and exacting family during
the cold months, and this deters
her somewhat from the attempt.

The mince pie party given to a

Grimes last Saturday evening was
prolific of results that will be ex

throughout the world. The party
was given for a purpose purely
scientific and was one of the most
unique social events that history
chronicles. The participants call
it a "socio-psychologic part," be
cause of the happy blending of
social and philosophic pleasures
which belonged to it. The under;
lying motive prompting the party
was a firm and unalterable deter
mination to investigate mince-pie
dreams with the object of classify

scientific basis. The "hypnotic

The following clipping was taken
from The Lamar Sparks a paper
published down in Arkansas valley,
Colorado, in Prowers county, where
they used to howl drouth and starv
ation as loud as anybody. They
have quit it, and now they are on
the other side of the market: Al
falfa is the greatest staple of the
valley, and Prowers county pro
duced a splendid crop last yeay.
The vield of seed was generous and
of high quality and the hay crop is
roughly estimated at 150.000 tons,
and will probably exceed that
figure. Thousands of cattle and
horses have been driven here from
less favored localities for feeding,
and over 30,000 head of sheep are
being cared for on the alfalfa lands
near Lamar. Very little of the
vast aniunnt of hay raised here will
be shipped out of the county.
Let us assume that Nebraska
means business this time, says the
Irrigation Age. What will be the
character of thecltauges
in her economic life by the adoption
of irrigation? It will be a revolu-j
tion. The quarter section will
come down to 80 acres, then to 40 I
acres, and ultimately to 2J acres, j

for within the limitations of his
own little farm the land proprietor
will be independent. He will learn
from Utah the philosophy of diver
sified crops and will try to produce ,
nearly everything h family con-1
smiles. Then he will laugh in the J
face of panics as well as in the face j
of dry years. He will learn from j
southern California scientific
methods of irrigation, and so will '
intensify the product of each acre :
to the last degree. He will learn j
from New England the social j
advantages of thickly populated
communities. The result will be a j
new kind of civilization and the '
gradual evolution of an American J
commonwealth, which will with-(
stand every shock and strain that
can come with time. The people of
Nebraska should look forward to
the next ten years as altogether thej
the brightest in their history. ;
There should be no faltering this,

breach of departmental courtesy he

Thurston's Speech of Acceptance.
Following is a synopsis cohering the
salient points in Hon. John M. Thurs
ton's speech of acceptance in the joint, j
convention which elected him United j
States senator from Nebraska: (

I am so signally favored. f
j-ue people or AeorasKa have been pub
licly and thoroughly advised as to how
I stand upon nearly all of tho important
tjuestions of the hour.
I wish the legislature to know my
views: for if you should differ with me I
respectfully ask that you direct mo by
appropriate resolutions as to your wishes.
So long as I boar tho commission of the
people of Nebraska I shall hold mvself
as their servant and subject to their di
rection. I desire, albo, to bo thoroughly
understood, in order to invito criticism 1
in advance. While I havo doep-seatod
convictions upon most public questions,'
I have no pride of opinion which would
stand in the way of giving full consider
ation to tho views, arguments and sug
gestions of othors.
I am in favor of tho speedy enactment
of a protective taritr law modeled upon
tho general lines of tho McKinley act,
and embodying tho reciprocity ideas of
James G. Ulaino. Whatever labor is to
bo dono for tho people of tho United
States, shall bo done by tho people of
tho United States under tho stars and
I would put a stop to tho outflow of
gold from tho treasury, lirst by requir
ing that all import duties should be
aid in gold at the option of tho treas
urer of tho United States; and, second,
by insisting upon the right of redemp
tion, iu either gold or silver, of our out
standing notes, whenever it become ap
parent that redemption is being de
manded for speculative purposes. It is
said that such a policy would drive
gold to a premium. In my judgment
we can better afford to have gold at a
premium than prosperity at a discount.
There should bo no resurrection of
wild cat money by the general govern-,
ment or by any state in the union. Our
national banking system should bo pre
served. It is tho best that human in
genuity has yet devised. I favor
amendments, however, in the following
particulars: The substitution of a lower
interest bond as security for the na
tional bank issue this substitution
would of itself refund to that extent the
government bonded indebtedness au
thority to issue bank notes to tho full
amount of the bond dpoiit; tho collec
tion of a tax on tho entire authorized
issue, and the imposition of a heavy
penalty, or forfoitdroflf charter, for
failure to zeop it-all :a escalation. -I
am in favor of American bi-mettal-ism,
and in this tho United States should
lead tho world. I do not admit the
claim so persistently made by advocates
of free and unlimited coinage of silver,
that our present evils aro the result of
so-called silver demonetization; nor do I
believe that the remonetization of silver
would produce any startling changes in
existing conditions. I am satisfied,
however, that tho demonetization of
one-half of tho world's supply of tho ul
timate money of redemption was not
for tho best interests of tho people of tho
world, and I think wo should do every
thing in our power to hasten tho re
turn of bi-metalism among tho nations
of tho earth.
My position upon tho American silver
question has been thoroughly understood
by the people of this state, and I accept
my election, by tho united vote of tho
great republican majority in this legisla
ture, as an endorsement of my ante-eloc-tion
declaration in favor of tho coinage
of tho American product of gold and
silver into honest dollars.
I heartily favor tho establishment of
a labor commission, or bureau, or depart
ment. which shall have general super
vision of all matter pertaining to labor
I have lived in the stato of Nebraska
for moro than a quajter of a century. I
am thoroughly familiar with its people,
its industries, its resources, its necessities
and its possibilities. I yield to no man
in loyalty to tho interests of this great
commonwealth and this splendid west in
which Nebraska is so centrally located.
In tho senate of the United States it will
bo my aim to labor for Nebrabka and for
tho west. But in striving for their ad
vancement and prosperity, I Bhall not
lose sight of the fact that they are apart
of the United States of Amencr. I havo
no patience with those men who seek to
array the west against tho east, or tho
east against tho west. Whoever attempts
to stir up sectionalism iu tho United
States is a traitor to his country. This
great agricultural and mineral west of
which wo are so justly proud, cannot
grow and thrivo and prosper as it ought
and should without tho cordial friend
ship, co-operation and assistance of tho
mighty seaboard east, which represents
the acoummulated capital of two centur
ies and a half of American enterprise
and thrift;and that mighty seaboard east
cannot grow acd thrive and prosper as it
ought and should, without the cordial
co operation, friendship and assistance
of this great pioneer west. Sectional
selfishness should ee subordinated to na
tional good. Nebraska put one star in
tho azuro of our flag, and New York put
another, but when they took their places
in this flag, they were no longer stars of
New York and Nebraska, but stars of tho
greatest nation of the earth, shining for
tho protection and happiness of every
American citizen. Let it bo the ambi
tion of all good and patriotic men I
pledge you, my countryman, it shall bo
mine to stand for tho prosperity and
welfare of tho best government that has
ever blessed mankind, and for the up
lifting and K'orification 0f the dearest
Hag that ever kissed the skv.
