Cutright has made a very large number

the very b-st wishes for him in his new

because he is a suecessful newspaper man
wht. can fill any portion in any field

satisfaction to the. paper that lists bun

A Slight Turn of the Wrist.
Nebraska City, Neb., March 25.
Sptciitl to World-Herald. 'The Hon.
cUiurch lluwe passed through this city
Saturday on bis way home from Omaha.
fbe Nemaha statesman, in an interview
published in last evening's News, said
lie was not at all surprised at the btaud
taken by ex-Senator Vn Wyck, and he
was glad to see it. Mr. Howe eaid he
was a farmer and Van Wyck was a great
man, an aid and friend to the farmer,
and was therefore helping him (Howe).
He thought Van Wyck would bo the
winning candidate for governor. Mr.
Howe said that while he was not a mem-
r of the farmer's alliance, he was with
them heart and soul. The cause of the
alliance was his, and a noble one. and
every move made by the organization
was aid to him as a farmer."
The foregoing is rich, racy and sug
gestive. It puts us in mind of a famous
saying of the late lamented SHas A
Strickland. U- S. District Attorney, dur
ing Andy Johnson's turbulent adminis
tration. On day a prominent politician
reminded "Strick,'' in a jocnlar manner.
that the sudden change of policy by
Johnson's administration, rendered his

Oh ."exclaimed "Snick." "if this
administration can make a shorter turn
than I can, let 'em try it." Church
Howe has a record as a granger, and
while he sterns to be able to do anything
in polities in Nemaha county, it is safe
to say that his acrobacy ends in Nemaha.
Fire at Wabash.
A second d-structive fire at Wabash
occurred yesterday morni-g, and con
sumed D. C Hayes' implement store, P.
J. Johnson's blacksmith shop, and the
building and outfit of the Weekly News.
Hayes' loss is $1,200, insured in the

News' loss, $700. insured in the German
