A BUSINESS PROPOSITION.
To the Honorable Commissioners
of Lincoln County, Nebraska.
Gentlemen: Recosrnizinir the
fact that there are many people in
this count' whom vou are desirous
of assisting; in the way of tempor
ary relief, and which in the present
financial condition of the county
you are unable so to do. The
Tribune will make you this busi
ness and philanthropic proposition:
The Tribune will agree to do all
the publishing- in its columns of
such legal and other notices, including-
delinquent tax-list, treas
urers' statements, etc., etc., that
ma' be required by Lincoln county,
Nebraska, for the year 1895, at one
third the leg-al rate; the remaining
two-thirds of said legal rate to be
transferred by 3ou at the close of
the year into the count' general
fund to be used in replacing what
you have expended in relieving the
distressed. Such printing as the
county may desire will be furnished
at the schedule of prices recently
filed by this office with the county
clerk, which is thought to be as
low as is commensurate with good
work, good material, and fair living-
prices. For the faithful per
formance of the above a good and
sufficient bond to be approved by
you will be furnished.
Now. gentlemen, let us see
whether you can drop your par
tisanship and become patriotic
philanthropists: see if you can
award a contract to the lowest bid
der, as it has been done in times
past by even democrats.

verdict of guilty until the sentence
was passed. "What was the sen

songs were rendered during the

audience went home, feeling that
the evening had been delightfully
passed." ' Clytie.

W. Welch, piano: Bertha Woodruff,
soprano, and Mrs. J. "Woods Smith,
elocutionist. Mr. C. C. Woodruff is
to act as advance agent and busi
ness manager, while Mrs. Woodruff
will assume the duties of treasurer.
The initial concert will be given at
Callaway Saturday evening, Feb.2.
and the route as far as laid out will
be on - the B. & M. from Broken
Bow to Grand Island, thence on the
U. P. as far as North Platte.
The Dawson County Pioneer
thus treats of a matter which may
have a local application to Lincoln
count" 'If all reports be true some
persons in tins countyare drawing
relief supplies who are not deserv
ing. We have heard of men draw
ing aid who .have money on deposit
in the banks, and of others doing
the same thing who are owners of
line large farms which are not at
all encumbered. It has been sun
gested that it would be the proper
thing to publish the names of those
who receive aid in order to detect
the undeserving. This, we believe,
would head them off. We have
enough destitute in our county who
will need all the assistance at the
command qi, the relief committee,
and to that class alone should the
supplies be given. In the latter
class there are said to be men who,
notwithstanding their urgent needs,
are too high spirited and proud to
ask for assistance. They should
be sought out and something- done
for them. But the dead beats
should be sawed off.'
Alfalfa is a' curious grass, but a
paying one, says an exchange. It
is better than a bank account, for
it never fails or goes into the hands
of a receiver. It is weather proof
for the cold does not injure and the
heat makes it grow all the better.
A winter's Hood will not drown it.
and a fire will not kill it. It loves
water and bores to reach it. As a
borer it is equal to an artesian
well. When growing there is no
stopping it. Begin cutting a twen
ty acre field, and when your last
load of hay is handled at one end
of the field the Tass is readv to
cut at the other end of it. For fill
ing a can. an alfalfa fed cow is
equal to a handy pump. Cattle
love it, hogs fatten upon it. and a
hungry horse will want nothing
else. Bees will leave all other
bloom for alfalfa. If your land will
grow alfalfa you will have the drop
on dry weather. Once started on
your laud' alfalfa will stay with you
like Canada thistles or a first-class
mortgage, but' only to make you
wealthier andi happier. Put in a

'Frank Sobreka, Dere Sur: As
vou seem to know so mutch about
things generaly, I want to hav you
tell why stealing- is o unpopular.
I am twelv yeres old and the best
speller in my class. I liked yure
artikle on how to make hens lay.
Folks do treat there hens skandul
lus. Yure's, Johnny Johnson."
I take great pleasure in answer
ing your letter, Johnny Johnson.
Your spelling is all right. I never
could spell that way myself, but
some boys naturally spell mighty
good and I have always liked to
have them. But you are mistaken
about stealing being unpopular,
Johnny. Stealing is wrong, but it
is not unpopular. However, older
men than you have used the wrong
word once and, very often twice in
a while. Stealing is. sometimes,
very unpopular, and, sometimes, it
is popular. It all depends on what,
or how much, one steals. I once
knew two very promising boys.
They were, always willing to prom
ise anything. They would promise
to go to school and would go fish
ing, and when their parents called
attention to their wrong doing
with a nice leather strap that was
warranted to secure the attention
of any boy. they would promise not
to do it again. These boys gradu
ally grew to the stature of men.
as you k now boys are addicted to
growing. It is a peculiar habit
boys have. One of these boys is
now serving a ten years' sentence
in the asylum established for the
unfortunates whose limited oppor
tunities prevented them from steal
ing enough to tour on. He stole a
horse. In fact he had stolen sev
eral horses. Let it be said to his
credit that he stole all he could.
His opportunities were limited.
The last horse he stole was worth
twenty-live dollars, but he secured
in the stealing, ten years board

unpopular and entitles the one who
does it to steady confinement and j
support at the public expense for
from one to ten years. In Nebras
ka, Johnny, you know, it is more
unpopular to steal an ass worth
five dollars than it is to steal a
child. If you should steal a child
you could secure not more than
seven years' board, but stealing a
Mexican burro might prepay your
board for ten years. There has
been a determination on the part of
legislators who have large families
to support to make child stealing
more popular than mule stealing
and at the present time it is less
unpopular by three years to steal a
$10,000 boy than it is to steal a S10
But that other promising boy.
my dear Johnny is a member of
congress. He became a lawyer.
He stole a right-of-way for a rail
road. Then he stole the road-bed,
rails, ties, engines, all the rolling
stock and the et cetera. This, was
all wrong, of course, but it was
popular. After he had stolen this
much he could steal anything else
he wanted, but he was never fool
ish enough to steal a horse. He
has become very popular. And so
you see, Johnny, it is wrong to
steal, but it is not altogether un
popular. If you ever in the future
experience an uncontrollable desire
to steal something, don't do it. but,
if you do, imitate the fellow who is
a congressman. Don't steal a loaf
of bread because you are hungry,
or a horse because you are tired.

THE IDEAL YOUNG WOMAN.
ANNA M. NEAKY.
"Who is my ideal woman.' That is
the question I asked myself when
I read the invitation in Word and
Works of October, 1893. for the
readers of that paper to write a
paper on "The Ideal Man or Wo
man." My first thought was. I do
not know her, I cannot write of her.
At second thought I said. yes. I do,
there are many ideal women in this
"Teat world of ours. I will trv to
picture her to the readers of thej
Word and Works iu the best light!
possible to me. My ideal woman i
realizes that the world does not ex
pect great things of her, but in the
doing of little things is where she
will be tried. The question with
her is. what shall I do. and how?
She bravelv answers the first bi
saying, duty first, and the other,
whatever I undertake to do I must j
do well, in a faithful, graceful, j
loving, tireless way, that I may ob-j
tain a noble, glorious, helpful wo-
manhood. The ideal woman at ,
home. To the ideal woman home ,
is her first thought. Duty calls
and keeps her there, and she ap
preciates that home, be it ever so
humble, it is always large and
grand enough to her for the devel
opment of good, tender, sincere wo
manliness. My ideal woman is thoughtful
and does not wound the feelings of
her family or friends at every turn.
Of her it is said, --Her price is far
above rubies," for she always helps
to make home happy and beautiful.
She is of a bright, sunny, unselfish,
happy disposition. At home and
abroad she is always kind, patient,
forbearing and thoughtful of father
mother, sisters, brothersand friends.
Of her talents she makes no vain
display, whether she be a business
or an intellectual domestic woman.
For when occasion demands she is
found to be a wise, intelligent busi
ness woman and an intellectual, in
dustrious and economical house
keeper and home maker, and of her
it is said. "She looketh well to the
ways of her household, and eateth
not of the bread of idleness." She
has a strong character, temperate
in all things, obedient, attentive
and reverent to her elders. Bv her
gentleness, even temper, hospitali
ty and enjoyment of quiet fun, she
wins the respect of great and small,
old and young, and her presence is
missed if she be absent even for a
short time. When illness comes
and help is needed, she is always
ready to act, and1 acts quickly and
quietly, and by her tenderness
soothes many an aching heart.
The ideal woman being contented
and happy, fills her home with an
atmosphere of sunshine, sympathy
and pure happiness. She scatters
sunshine as well as flowers wher
ever she goes, and her mind, heart
and soul grows broader in so doing.
The ideal woman is never out of
place socially, she always finds and
is in her exact place, being natural,
gracious and unatTected in manner,
exquisite in dress.noble in purpose,
true of heart, just as beautiful as
nature and good home training and
culture can make her. Interested
in others and not always talking
about herself, she enters into the
conversation of those around her
with spirit and wit. The ideal wo
man has high ideals, and strives
hard to attain and keep them, and
thereby stands fast by her woman
hood. She also strives to elevate
humanity, but unlike the average
woman, she does not think she has
to work in the slums. No, indeed,
her sphere is larger than that. She
makes it known that idle gossip,
slang and scandal are not only un
wise, but unkind, unnecessary and
unwomanly. The ideal woman is
not always thinking of marriage
but is preparing for it every day of
life by being true to her parents,
sisters, brothers and friends, and
grows more gentle, tender and deep
These graces are not attained in
a day or a week, but day bv dav for
years. The ideal woman is all wo
manly and beautiful within. She
is wise in choosing her men friends
and does not look upon every man
friend as a lover, but makes truth,
honesty, purity, sobriety, industry
and manliness the necessary quali
fications of uch friends. A virtue
much admired by the ideal woman
is chivalry, for. says she, a man
who is rude, intemperate, or disre
spectful now. and brings the blush
to a young woman's face and re
peatedly hurts her feelings, would,
if she were his wife, bring much
sorrow to her heart and blister her
cheeks with tears. Yes. the ideal
woman shuns all idle or unprinci
pled men. or when she does meet
them, by her kind, gentle womanly
ways shows them their errors and
thereby helps them on to a better,
happier life. The ideal woman
when she marries, which she most
certainly does, marries a man of
heart, brain, strong will and a man
of prayer. "Favor is deceitful and
beauty is vain. The woman, that
feareth the Lord she shall be
