The Independent probably thinks
Holt county people prefer to read
newspaper opinions of Bartley in
preference to live home news.
Oh yes, Mr. Eves, of Amelia, is
a very independent newspaper man.
When Mr. Harrington is out of town
the Independant never expresses an
opinion on any question.
Nebraska’s corn crop ia estimated
at 137,000,000 bushels. While
'counting chickens before they are
hatched, is an uncertainty, this
estimate is Considered low.
As predicted by The Frontier last
week Editor Henry allowed the blue
penicl and the desert air to swallow
his opinion on the roast given him
by the Independent. The “ring”

The wisdom of the department in
the manner in which the Indian
Territory strip was opened is not
questioned, but that government

seemeth not exactly harmonious.
Those inclined to laugh the tariff
to scorn a few years ago have chang
ed their tune in that respect. The
present stir in Europe over the prob
lem of how to maintain commercial
equality with America shows that
the people are awakening to the fact
that America with her protective
tariff can easily retain ascendency
over free trade Europe.
Our amiable and esteemed con
temporary, ostensibly edited by the
Amelia poet, in an unusually severe
lit of epilepsy, last week said The
Frontier did not mention the
Deaver appointment. If the “poet”
from Amelia can digress a moment
from the worship of Mr. Eves he
will find a half column devoted to
this same appointment on the first
page of The Frontier of July 25.
With a ring of bogus reformers
and a pop judge for a center piece
bidding on land at a “public” tax
sale and running it up beyond value
to prevent honest men from the
country getting it, and then not
taking the land while the costs are
assessed to the county with the
taxes still unpaid is a bright specti
cal of much vaunted reform.
Tho Frontier this week publishes
a letter from M. F. Harrington
written to the State Journal regard
ing its article on the recievership of
the Exchange bank of Atkinson.
The Frontier published the State
Journal article and in justice to all
concerned publishes the letter. Mr.
Harrington does not discuss the
actions of the receiver, merely his
connection with the bank as attor
Maryland democrats take the
initiative step toward the disfran
chisement of the negro. Elimina
tion of the negro from politics will
be a feature of the democratic plat
from in that state. It was the dem
ocratic party that held the slave
chain on the negro race in America
until the bands were broken by
a republican president in tho CO’s.
The proposed Maryland platform is
a fit emblem of democracy.

A populist can get things wrong
with an ease and grace that puts to
naught Shakespeare’s “Comedy of
Errors.” For the enlightenment of
the Advocate editor The Frontier
will state that D. J. Cronin is the
biggest pop in Shields township, a
bully good fellow, and said to have
an itching palm.
The syndicate edited sheet in the
cellar devoted about all of its last
issue to the State Journal, The
Frontier and the Bartley bank. A
lot of space is used but none of the
receivers acts denied. They do not
explain why Mr. Howard sold the
bank building for about $800 when
it was worth $5,000. They claim Mr.
Howard paid the depositors seventy
five per cent, of the deposits. Let
us see: The state of Nebraska had
on deposit $55,000. The receiver
paid $8,000. If $8,000 is seventy
five per cent, of $55,000, then fig
ures will lie. They did not explain
why Mr. Howard carried about
$1,500 of this money in his pocket
for several months before turning it
over to the state.
Guessing on Corn.
Globe Democrat: Probably the
reports of the damage to the corn
crop were exaggerated. Home of
the reports sent out about ten days
ago iignred that there would be a
reduction of about four hundred
million bushels in the yield this year,
as compared with last year’s total.’
This would make the production of
1901 about one billion seven hun
dred million bushels. As rains have
fallen once or twice in the corn belt,
however, in the past four or five
days, the outlook for the crop has
greatly improved. There is a possi
bility that the yield will be one bil
lion eight hundred million or one
billion nine hundred million, pro
viding the elements be moderately
favorable from this time onward.
For the past six y«ars the corn
yield has not varied much from two
billion mark. In four years of this
time the crop went above the two
billion line, and in two years it
dropped below that mark. The lar
gest crop in this period was in 1890,
when it was 2,283,000,000 bushels,
and the smallest one was in 1897,
when it was 1,903,000,000. The
years of the greatest and the smallest
crop coming close together made a
shrinkage in one year of 380,000,000
bushels. This was the broadest
recent variation in the crop in suc
cessive years, except in 1894 and
1895.The abnormally low yield of the
former year was followed by a crop
900.000. 000 bushels greater, or 2,
151.000. 000 bushels. But the
smaller crop in those yeais was
worth $10,000,000 more on the farm
than was the greater one.
A falling off in the corn yield,
while it dose not commonly
injure the producer seriously, strikes
both the consumer and the railroads.
The consumer usually makes up the
loss to the producer in advanced
prices. But the railways lose a
great deal of freight through the
shortage, their earnings are decrees
ed and sometimes they are reduced
to straits thereby, and are obliged
to discharge some of their employes
or cut wages. Then, too, a corn
shortage tells in a reduced pork
product and higher pork prices.
Corn is the United States’ imperial
crop. Commonly it is double the
value of wheat, and is far ahead of
that of cotton, hay or any other
agricultural product. It is satisfac
tory to know, therefore, that from
present indications, the reduction in
the corn yield will not be so great
as was feared a week ago.
Fremont Tribune: Governor
Savage has decreed that no state
official whose quisites include
mileage shall be allowed to draw pay
for milage if he holds and rides on
a pass. On the contrary the official,
if he pays his fare, will take a re
ceipt and will get his money back
from the state. This is precisely as
it should be. ltailroads give passes
not for the sake of the person but
the position he holds. The position
is created by the state. Therefore
the money saved by riding on a pass
conferred by reason of the position
should clearly go to the state.
There was a box social given at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. T. B. Mar
iug on last Saturday night. The
boxes were sold at auction, the pro
ceeds of the sale are to be used on
the minister’s salary. Everyone had
an enjoyable time.

Astounded The Editor.
Editors. A. Brown, of Bennettsville,
8. C., was once immensely surprised.
"Though long suffering from Dys
pepsia,” he writes, "my wife was greatly
run down. She had no strength or
vigor and suffered great distress from
her stomach, but she tried Electric Bit
ters which helped her at once, and. after
using four bottles, she is entirely well,
can eat anything. It’s a grand tonic,
and its gentle laxative qualities are
splendid for torpid liver.” For Iudiges
tion, Loss of Appetite, Stomach and
Liver trouble it,s a positive, guaranteed
cure. Only 50c at P. C. Corrigan.
ELOCUTION HELPS THE VOICE.
By Careful Training Harshness of Tone
May Be Overcome.
There are some who deride the pre
vailing popularity among wom
en of “the elocutionary fad,” as it is
contemptuously called. But those who
have observed the effect of Indulgence
in this so-called mania have none but
word3 of praise for it. The most no
ticeable defect in an otherwise excels
lent dramatic performance recently
given in this city by a set of college
girls was in the matter of voices. Of
the large cast there was just one young
woman who possessed a voice of any
thing like requisite quality. Hers was
both rich and carrying and it was an
ruued pleasure to listen to her lines as
she spoke them from tho contrast with
the others. Thin, throaty tone, or,
worse, those with a distinct nasal In
tonation, are bad enough to the sen
sitive ear when used in the key of
ordinary conversation. When it is
needed to expand such voices to the
declamatory point, then lack of vol
ume, displacement and mellowness are
painfully evident. Faithful practice
may do much to correct faults of em
phasis and Inflection, but the most
sanguine coach will not undertake to
make over a poor voice in a course of
three or even six weeks’ rehearsals.
The possibilities of the speaking voice
are beginning to be understood. Par
ents are discovering that it is a wise
plan to cultivate In their daughters
and their sons too, for that matter, an
agreeable voice for the speech of life.
Instructors in the art of developing
the exquisite mechanism and wonder
ful capability of the human voice are
springing up on every side. It cannot
be long before it will be a positive re
proach for a woman of education at
least to speak in shrill, nasal p»r un
