L. D. Richards will unquestionably be
elected the next governor of Nebraska,

Cottonseed oil is being used to manu
facture and cheapen the price of lard.
Its use in that direction has rown so
that immense fortunes have been made
out of the product which greatly cheapen
the genuine article with which it comes
into direct competition. Congress
passed the lard bill at its last session in
the interest of pure lard and in the in
terest directly and absolutely of every
farmer in Nebraska. Yet the democratic
party opposed this measure with great
force a"nd came near defeating it. Why
don't the windy Bryan explain this fact.

, Omaha Voters to be Enjoined From
j Statu Journal. .
I It was lenrned last eve ning from au
thentic sources that two Omaha prohibi
tionists were in Lincoln bust evening
making preparations to lay before the
supreme court this morning un applica
tion for an order of injunction which
will be tho means of preventing hundreds
and perhaps thousands from voting in
Omaha. These gentlemen claim that
large numbers of foreign born men have
recently taken out naturalization papers
at the instance of the "personal libeity
league" with the apparent purpose of
voting against the prohibitory amend
ment, and that the expense of obtaining
these papers was paid by the league out
of a fund raised for the purpose. The
prohibitionists claim that this method of
securing voters is illegal nd will ask
thn supreme court to restrain all whose
papers were so obtained from voting and
to restrain election officers from receiving
votes for such. They claim, also, that
in case the supreme court fails to act and
the amendment fails they will contest
the election on the ground of "the illegal
ity of these votes.

The social given by the Delphian and
the Athenian societies last Friday night
was a success. There was a joint prjgram
given in the chapel by the two societies
after which the audience went to the
dormitory and feasted on oyster soup and
cake to their hearts content. There was
present about a hundred students from
the State University and a goodly num

body seemed to enjoy themselves hugely
Saturday afternoon the Cotner boys
picked up a nine and went over and
played the Weslyan's a game of ball.
The score stood fourteen to eleycu in

first game and not having practiced

Do not be caught jn the delusion ol .
many thousands in postponing a home
until they can have an expensive one
This idea is the devil's trap that catches '
men and women innumerable, who wiU
neyer have any at all. The laborer may
have, at the close of the clay, to walk er
ride farther than is rioirahlc to reach it
but when he yets to his destination in
ho teutide he will find something,
worthy ot being called by that glorious
and impassioned, and heaven descended
Young married man, as soon as u
can buy such a place, even if you have
to put on it a mortgage reaching .from
base to capstone. The much abused
mortgage which is ruin to the reckless
man. to one prudent and provident is
the brginning of a competency and a
fortune, for the reason he will not be Rat
ified until he Las paid it off, ond all the
household are put on strictest economy
until then. Deny yourself all superflui
ties and all luxuries until you can suy:
"Everything in this honse is mine thaiilr

not have children born in a bearding
house, and do not yourself bt buried
fromonc. Have a place wh re your
children can shout and sing aid romp
and not be overhaulded for the racket
Hnye a kitchen where you can do some
thing toward the reformation of evil
cookery and the lessening of this nation
of despeptics. As Napoleon lost one of
his great battles by an attacked of indi
gestion, so many men have euch a daily
wrestle with the food swallowed that
they have no strength left for the battle
of life; and though your wife may know
how to play all musical instruments and
rival a prima dona, she is not well edu
cated unless she can boil an Irish potatoe
and broil a mutton chop, bince tne die
sometimes decides the fate of families
Have a setting room with at least one
easy chair, even though you have to take
turns at sifting in it, and books out o
the public library, or of your own pur
chase for the making of your family in
telligent, and checker boards and guess
ing mntches, with an occassional blind
man's bluff, which is of all games mj
fayorite.J Rouse up your bomea with al
styles of innocent amusement, and gath
er up in your children's lives a restrvbr
of exuberance that will pour down r
freshing streams when life gets parched
and the dark days' come and the lights
go out and the laughter is smothered in
to a sob. T.'.De Witt Talmage.
