I herewith announce my candi
dacy for county commissioner on tho
republican ticket and ask tho support
ofull citizens and pledge to conduct
the county affairs in an economical
and business way if elected.
Ira L. Miltoniierghr.
Roosovelt will cross Nebraska today,
speaking at Hastings, Lincoln and
Omaha. Bryan announces that ho will
follow Iri Teddy's wake and stick spikes
in him.
Ralph C. Otis, a representative', bus
iness man of Chicago, who is said to
have been "tho head and front" of the
Roosovolt movement for u third term
in its earliest stages has given up the
fight. He says he is through and
gives for a reason: "We started out on
consorvatiyo lines and were accom
plishing a lot of good. But now the
radicals and impractical have taken
over tho organization." The announce
ment of tho "colonel in one of his
eastern speeches that he is a radical
and is going farther than the platform,
seems likewise to loso some support
even though it.may gain a bit here and
there. The average man wants to
know, when ho starts out, where he is
going. Grand Island Independent.
fffho foroign commerce of tho United
States touched a new high record dur
ing August, both in tho value of
American goods exported and of
foreign goods brought into this country.
Atigust completed an eight months per
iod during which America's business
with other nationsincrcased J$180,000,
000 on the import side and);$150,000,000
on the oxpbrt side over any other year
in tho. country's history. Tho August
exports were valued at$167,885,000 and
tho importH $155,000,000. In onch case,
this was an increase of moro than
15,000,000 above the business of the
corresponding month last year. For
tho eight months tho export business
of the United States was $1,417,000,000
and tho import business was $1,188,
000,000. Petition Said To Be Illegal.
Tho Bull Mooso petition and certifi
cate of tho formation of tho new third
party in tho Sixth congressional dis
trict wero (lied with tho secretary of
state Tuesday afternoon. Tho petition
for tho tormation of tho party is signed
with 109 names, all but elovon of
which aro from Kearney, where the
mooting was held. Tho potition of
nomination of a candidate. (is signed
with 108 names, none of which havo
nny designation ofjresidenco. As this is
illegal tho potition has j been returned
by Secretary of State Wait and a now
ono will havo to bo filed. Tho potition
recites that Florence Armstrong was
tho nominoo of tho bull moosors for
congress from tho Sixth district. It
is said that Floronce is a man, although
his name Hounds otherwise.
Straws from Minnesota.
The ronomination of Govornor Eber
hart of Minnesota, and;tho endorse
ment of Senator Knuto Nelson for
unothor term, in the republican pri
maries justheld in that state aro straws
showing tho direction, of the.'political
wind. Both the governor and thojsenator
aro out-and-out republicans, and havo
not wavered in their support of Presi
dent Tnft as tho party standard-bearer,
and yot they aro favoredjby tho popular
expression in a direct primary in which
every republican in tho stato was free
to participate.
Minnesota has been generallyJimted
as ultra-progressive. It went over
whelmingly for Roosovelt for tho presi
dential nomination, and J tho colonel
made several stops there on his recent
tour with n viow tojnailing it down, he
going even so far as to makojan attack
upon Governor Eborhart at a banquet
whoro both wero present, but the can
didates ho favored did not land tho
nominations for these two high places
on the ticket. MinnosotaJ republicans
evidontly ure. not ready to ubandon
their party or turn it over to its de
stroyers Boo.
Claims Cure for Disease.
Koarnoy Hub: Dr. A. A. Mutm is
positivo that his Jfirst diagnosis of tho
horse disease in which ho claimed that
tho animals wero not suffering from
spinal-moningitis, or any other menin
gitis, but that some kind of germ was
attacking tho animal through tho blood
and kidnoys, is tho right ono.
"Combating tho disease on that basis
lie has cured two animals for .lack
Shunno, of Odessa, threo for Gay
Parker, of Newark, and threo on tho
Barkin'a ranch near Pleaaanton by in
J?cMjJ iniluonza anti-toxin sorum In
tho afflicted animals, not ono of which
thps treated has died.
Wednesday morning he ordored 2,000
njections by telegram to carry on tho
fight against tho epidemic.
What makes him tho moro suro of
his case Is the condition of tho Valentino
animals north of town. All of tho (
animals were treated with tho antitoxin
last February, n treatmentwithbut six
months immunity from influenza, by
tho way, and not ono has been attacked
by the disease although nnimals on
three adjoining farms have been
Bay Tree Beliefs.
Long before the time of Shakespeare
the bay tree was an object of super
stition The withering of such a tree
was believed to bo n suro indication of
coming misfortune to those with whom
It was in any way connected. Shake
speare gave voice to the superstition
In "Richard II." when ho made ono of
his characters yry:
Tls thought thA king Is dead; we'll not
stay '
The bay trnen In our country are with
ered. It wns thought by tlio ancients that
lightning would never harm this tree,
and It was customary among them to
carry bay leaves as a charm ngalnst
the thunderbolts of Jove. The sumo
belief was lone prevalent In Kuglnnd.
and reference to It may be found In
nn old poem dedicated to Ben .lonson:
1 seo that wreathe which doth tho wearer
Gainst tlio quick stroaltos pf thunder Is
no charm
To keep off death's pale dart
Tho Magio of a Siphon.
When a pipe shaped like tho Inverted
letter U, In which the arms are of
equal length, is filled with water and
each end of the pipe is put Into a scpa.
rate vessel full of water "tlio uown
ward pull." or weight, of the liquid in
each of tho two arms will balance the
other, and, If the water Is nt the samo
level In tho two vessels It will re
main at that level in both vessels.
Hut if tho level of the water In one
vessel Is lower than In tho other, since
the two vessels are connected with n
pipe full of water, the water will run
down from tho higher level to tho low
er. This constitutes what is called a
siphon. A siphon itself has no more
magic nbout It than a pencil has when
It falls or than nny other similar phe
nomenon in nature, yet some of tho
siphon's manifestations seem to be
not only magical, but almost Incredible.

Forgery In Ancient Greece.
Dactyl is Greek for linger, and from
this tho word dactylography, to apply
to a knowledge oC finger rings, has been
accepted, though evidently a misfit.
Rings as signets hark back to ancient
Egypt, from which country they prob
ably came to Greece. Solon, the Greek
lawgiver, who died 058 years before
the Christian era. enacted u law that
no engraver or cutter of signet rings
should keep by him tho Impression of
any ring lie had cut. As these rings
were used to sign documents of various
kinds. thN law was intended to pre
vent fraud ami forgery.
Humblo Pie,
There is a queer twist of langungo In
tho phrase "to eat humble plo." Tho
word "humble" Is a corrupted form of
the original nuuihlc," which Is an In
edible part of tho carcass of n deer and
would make very poor pic. Tho words
"humble pie" havo the same original
meaning as "to eat crow." a phrase
common in political life. There is an
enforced humility In this process, and
the change from "numblc" to "humblo"
Introduced a thought which harmonized
with tho Idea sought to bo expressed.
Tho last form of tho phrase has en
tirely supplanted tho original.
A Famous Widow.
One of tho most famous widows of
antiquity was Agripplna, the widow of
GornfanIcu3. During the lifetime of
her husband she attended him in all his
campaigns and shared his dangers.
Suspecting that her husband ,had been
poisoned, sho had his presumed mur
derer assassinated and was herself
soon after treated with such Indignity
by Tiberius that sho was driven to
despnlr and starved herself to death.
