Irving and Florence Gilbert, brother
and sister have astounded their friends
in Sioux City, Ta., where they are well
known, by starting for Newton, Mass.,
to buy a small farm and work out an
independent future after a peculiar idea
advanced by the brother. Their plan
is to raise on the farm all that they need,
and only what they need, to sell nothing
and to do without whatever is to be had
only by purchase. They are to cultivate
the land themselves and make their own
clothing. Miss Gilbert was graduated
from the Sioux Falls High school and
she taught in the schools there. She
was active socially in the city life. Her
brother became known in Chicago dur-
th World's fair, where he was employed
as an architect on some of the buddings.
He is a victim of dyspepsia and nervous
prostration and he believes that both,
which he thinks came as a result of the
high tension of city life, will disappear
in a life of simplicity.

Of the active farmers now in Nebras
ka, most of the older set remember how !
we used to stand up in line before the
teachers desk at the district school and
read from the old McGuffey's- Fifth
Reader. It was a sterling book and
every 'piece" was a gem. How proud j
we were when we had benn promoted to
the fifth reader class and could stand up
with the big boys and girls, and read
verse about down the line. Some of us
can even yet recite from memory the
thundering lines of Byron describing
the Battle of Waterloo! commencing
"There was a Eound of revelry by night."
We can remember some uf the stirring
passages from Webster' great oration
where he began, uMr. President, I shall
enter into no ecomium upon Massachu
setts." We remember the story from
Washington Irving of buffalo hunt
which occured over a hundred years
ago out in this western countrv some-,
where, and the ctory of the beautiful
Genevra. who in playful ihoughtlessnees
locked herself in the great oaken chest
which held the secret of her death for
fifty years. Life seemee very beantif u
ana romantic to us toen, wnen our
hearts were tender and impressionable.
before these later disappointments had
deadened our finer sensibilities.
But we promised so much and we've
gamed so little.
We promised so much of glory and gold.
And we ve gamed so little
That our hands are cold.
And for cold and trior v we've trail
Hearts that are sickened and hopes that
There's as much beauty in the world
now as there was then, but we aon't
see it. Love is humming the same old
tunes, but the gentle music does not
reach our ears.
"Time, that defaces u.
Places and replaces us,"
has put deeD furrows and harsh looks
upon the happy faces which we had
then. If we had been content to keep
in the broad highway where competency
and content comes at last as a sure re
ward for honest toil apd frugal living,
if we had kept out of the sideroads into
which greed, speculation and fashion
were forever beckoning us, we would
now be looking at life "from a different
standpoint, and the distance between
what we hoped to achieve and what we
have achieved would not seem so great.
But speaking of how we sometimes
see ourselves from the wrong standpoint
and how the burden of.' each one seems
to him heavier and harder to bear than
the burdens of his fellows, reminds me
of another one of the "pieces" which we
used to read in the old McGuffey's.
In a certain country the people came
to the king each with & burden peculiar
to huaseif, which seeijaed to him more
grievious than the burden of any other,
and which he prayed might be removed
by some act of the king or some process"
One man had a scolding wife, another
had a carbuncle on his shoulder, another
had a cork leg, and still another had an
undutiful son. Now, if that king had
been a demagogue, he. would have tried
to fool the people, to) take their minds
off on a wild goose chise after some pre
tended reform. He would have called a
convention and would have prepared
some thundering resolutions. He would
have organized a street parade of those
who had grievances. There would have
been banners and mottoes crying
"Down with carbuncles!" "Down with
undutiful sonsP "Down with scolding
women!" and down with cork legs!" But
the king was neither a demagogue nor a
chump. He knew that life was no joke,
that it was a serious matter, that thun
dering resolutions or flying banners
never would do away with carbuncle5,
undutiful sons, scolding women or cork
legs. He was philosopher enough to
know that each man must evolve
within himself sufficient individual
strength to solve the problem of his own
particular life and nust keep his temper
sweet enough his mind clear enough
and his eyes open enough to see what
ever sunshine would fall upon his path.
The king knew that each of these com
plainers had brooded over his particular
grievance until fee shad become morbid
and chronic in his discontent, and that
the only way to cure him nf this mind
malady was to change off with the
And so he appointed a day when each
should bring his burden to the palace
and exchange it for, another. And now
the man with the pcolding wife came,
dragging her in. an3 flung her down be
fore the king. The cork leg was thrown
in a heap of discarded burdens and tha
undutiful son with his cigarette and tan
colored shoes was tumbled inalon with
the carbuncle. And then there was a
scramble each for what the other had
The carbuncle man had long had his
eye on the scolding wife, for she had
never scolded him, and he had seen her
only in company where her manners
were amiable and sweet. The father1

any amount of money on cigarettes and

But you remember, my old school fel
ov from way back, how each of these
men returned in a day or two and begged
for his aid burden again. And now I am
wondering how Nebraska people feel
since they have exchanged republicanism
The taxes were a heavy burden-under.
republican rule. The populist politi
cians told the people over and over again
that they would reduce the salaries of '
those who lived on the public, that they
would abolish the Secretaries of the
Board of Transportation, would abolish
a great many of the useless positions
which absorbed the substance of the
people and rendered no equivalent.
They would abolish railroad passes and
stop the private junketing of public offi
cers. Enough of the people believed these
promises and voted for a change to put
he populists in charge of the state gov
ernment. jow, what is the result? Has
the burden been made lighter?
I have seen a gaunt mother pursued
by a nungry pace, x nave watcnea
her to see if she would finally yield to
the cries of the fat little rascals who
were too lazy to root for themselves. I
have seen her at last, as if overcome by
importunities of the brood, lie down
and turn up her dinner basket and I
have observed how each little pig rooted
his nose about to find the softest teat,
and how in their greedy scramble they
crowded each other, how they sucked
and pulled and grunted with satisfaction
as the last drop was sucked from the
poor old mother and how when she could
no longer give down they jammed their
ittle sharp hoofs into her flesh, rooting,
pulling and sucking and squealing for
more. Did you ever see pigs suck with
more energy than these reformers who are
sucking now? Thev have been jostling
each other and quarreling like cats over
the spoils instead of remembering the
promises they had made to the people.
Some ofthem have not only their noses
but both feet in the trough, and some of
them, hundreds whom I could name, are
squealing all over the state because
there was no tent for them. If I should
write it down that all these fine preten
sions of reform were utterly false, that
they did mean one word of it, that thev
intended to fool the people by this trick
of pretensions just as Bryan fooled the
people when he pretended to hate in
junctions, and just as he advised the
farmers and workingmen to deceive dur
ing the last campaign, and if I would
say that populism is only an organized j
appetite for office, then the governor
would send out over the signature of his
stenographer, another communication to
the populist press denouncing me as a
skunk. If the odor which republican
writers give out is bad, it is the odor of
populism uncovered and I don't blame
them for holding their noses at the

grabbed before. They are off on junket
ing tours, some of them, before they are
dry behind the ears from being born
into public ofiice. A week before the
legislature adjourned it was all at once
discovered that the Secretary of State
was absent. It was given out by his
clerks that he had left no word, but
they thought he was off for a day or two
at his home in Merrick county. It was
an awkward and unusnal thing- for the
Secretary Sec re lay to be away at such
a time. All the business of the session,
accumulates into Jus hands at the close
and it is important that he be there
above all times in the year. The buTs
passed are required to be handled with
great care lest there be some error in
compiling them into the printed laws.
But the secretary was away just at this
critical time, and the mass of of newly
made laws was dumped into his office,
into the hands of a lot of inexperienced
clerks, just as a careless farmer dumps
a load of corn into the mud before a pen
of hungry cattle. The lawyers and
these who understand how important
it is to keep the work of legislation
orderly and straight, smiled when they
saw the general tumbled and disorderly
manner in which the session was ending;
and some of them say there is scarcely a
bill passed which, when it finally gets
into the book will stand the test of its
constiutionality. But as the Secretary
was away everything went by guess, and
no one could tell where he was-or when
he would return. In two weeks after
the close of the session he appeared and
began to tell his confidential friends of
the wonderful sights and the wonderful
advantages of Florida. He had been on
a junket to the south and could not
keep the secret. Warwick Saunders,
one of the oil inspectors, is just returned
from Texas, and is trying to be inter
viewed in an advertising scheme as a re
ward for his transportation. The gov
ernor and his private secretary, with
their families, are off ha a private car for
a junket to Port Arthur and other
points in Texas, which they are trying to
boom. The Gulf road, which furnished
the private car and equipped it with
victuals ahd drink is sending out boom
