Spurrier and little son Willie departed to-day for Decatur, Iowa, where they will visit rela tives for a couple of weeks. Mrs. Al Moshier is visiting her people in the eastern part of the state, after which she will join her husband in their new home at Iliff, Colorado. N. J. Snow, of Ogalalla, has rented the John Bergman residence at Hershey, where he will soon move his family and engage in the blacksmith business. We hope he will meet with success in his new place of business. Rev. Graves, of the county seat, preached to a large and apprecia tive audience in the K. O. T. M. hall at Hershey Sunday evening. The new dwellings that Paxton & Hershe- are erecting are neat and cozy cottages. Mr. Null, who has resided on Henry Weil's farm the past year, has rented the ditch farm recently vacated by W. Scott Vaughan. The revival meetings are still in progress at Hershey at this writing and many have forsaken the broad way and are now striving to enter the straight and narrow path. We hope success will crown their efforts. The Swede dance which occurred in the town site hall at Hershey on Saturday night was hugely enjoyed by the participants, and was run into the wee sma' hours of the Sab bath morning, A. B.

Thcelecke, of North Platte, is hauling straw from this locality to his farm south of the "hub." A. Mr, Miller, of Lilac, McPherson county, was the guest of Douglas Brown Friday and Saturday while on his way to and from North Platte. A man who can afford line gold watches for himself and wife, and spend thirty or forty dollars in a pleasure trip over the country, and then draw county aid, is in our opin. ion a "snide," and the sooner the count' is rid of such people the bet ter for it.

The sympathy of many friends goes out to them in their sad hour of bereavement. O. I. C. E. M. F. LEFLANG, Pres't., MM ARTHUR McNAMARA, Cashier. Commissioners Proceedings.

If sugar bounty will stimulate the beet sugar industry in Nebraska and make it one of the leading agri cultural industries of the state, then let us have the bounty by all means. Five or six years of bounty stimulus would develop the indus try so that both the manufacturer and producer could take care of himself and the bounty could then be removed. Sugar beets manufac tured into sugar at home and ship ped out as a condensed product, is far ahead of a farm staple that has to be shipped long distance and loses its profit in transportation Kearney Hub. charges.

A meeting was held at the post- office Monday to organize the pre cinct for receiving aid. G. W. Miller and family were vis iting at James Jolliff s last week. If reports are true some parties in the south part of the county are re ceiving aid who should be able to get along without it.

In Buffalo county the petitions which were circulated calling for an election to vote bonds for seed and feed for the farmers, have been returned to the county clerk with an insufficient number of signa tures. In Holt county the amount of the bonds asked for this same purpose is $50,000. The farmers claim, says the Gree ley Leader, that it the weather con tinues cold as it has for the past two weeks nearly all the stock in the county will perish oefore March 1. Feed is getting very scarce and the weather has been s.p cold that stock can not feed onr, the prairie gras. Captain Haskell, from McPherson county, was in with Jour carloads ot cattle last Wednesday. He told the writer that there had been eight or nine big mountain wolves killed near his place within the past two weeks.

Paul Jensen,' who is one of the old scouts of the northwest sandhill country, killed four of these The correspondent who protests to the New York Sun against the quoting of a market value forwork ingmen the same as for potatoes is answered vigorously enough in the following paragraph: "Because all men arc alike, and as laborers, by their hands or their heads, with out any discrimination whatsoever, they are all commodities, with their worth measured by the market price just like a potato. There is no difference between high-price goods like railroad presidents, such as Chauncey Mitchell Depew of New York or George Roberts of Pennsylvania, and-a-potato. Each is traded in according to the mar ket price. The bijr railroad men get great wages because the latter are necessary to allure them from other pursuits where their talents would bring them large returns. At every move in life, at every stage of the competition, they are but potafoes, absolutely. Between the potato and the railroad presi dent, or the great commercial mag nate of any sort, there is no grade or sort of commodity, human or otherwise, which is bought and sold by the market price. One effect of labor organizations apparently is to get the men who specially class ify themselves as 'laborers' so stuck on themselves as to imagine finally that they are unique, and entitled GEO. W.

The debate in the Senate Wed nesday brought out the fact that the Morgan-Rothschild-Stetson combine is making S per cent net profit on the bonds just issued, the London market taking them eagerly at 112;.

Grow, for all his three score years and ten, is one of the sturdiest and most vigorous men in the house. He is more reg ular in his attendance than almost any other member except Reed, and he is as much in evidence as any of those who are no more than half his age. Nobody, to look at him and to hear him speak, would imagine him to be a day over 60. His back is as straight as the pillars of the Capitol, and there are not half a dozen men in congress who can match him in a stride. Before the war he knocked a south erner down in front of the speaker's desk. He looks as if he could do it now without the slightest effort. BR THBWIIL:QlFAIR The California legislature is con sidering a beet-sugar bounty bill similar to the one now before the Nebraska legislature. It provides for the payment of a bounty of one cent a pound to the manufacturer, provide at least five dollars a ton is paid for the beets. The Nebraska bill fixes the bounty at five-eighths of a cent for factories now, and three-eighths for those that may be hereafter, erected. This is a better planned bill than the California' measure. It offers stronger induce ments for new factories and doesn't contribute a bonus to those already built, but simply guarantees them a good supply of . beets by. paying a dollar a ton to the farmer, Fre- HOW'S THIS!
