which can be applied to Phit.nmoutii
equally as well, and then deducting th"
difference in freight, Piattsmouth dealers
would lose from trn Ci nt to one dollar
and thirty cents per ton. The people of
our sister cities bays never appreciated
what generous citizens Plattsmouth lias.
Plattsmouth people may not gtt as much
for corner lots a our neighbor, but for
unstinted g'-nerosity, our equal is not
often found. Now n conclusion let u-i
state a fact that will relieve you a little.
Since the river was frozen over the streets
of Plattsmouth have been lined with
loads of good hard wood from the Iowa
side. This wood ii sold very low so
that large numbers of the citizens have
taken down their coal stoves and put up
wood stoves. The result is an overstock
of coal, and rather than carry it over, it
is sold at 10.50 per ton. Come down
and sit by our fire and quit wrangling
over the matter.

Meat for I'oor IVojile.
'I am told," said a Boston butcher,
"that the people in the poorer parts of

groceries, and that the meat men nay j
they can sell the coarser cuts of meat to j
the rich, but that people of moderate !

thing from Washington and other cities.
A friend of mine, :i man of wealth, wise,
like his father before him, had long been
noted as one cf the most jjenerotis 1kiio
f actors of the poor in the city where he
lives, and with whom I happened to bo
talking about these matters, remarked:
'For my family I get the cheaper cuts of
meat because they axe cheaper. My chil
dren are satisfied wiih round steak and
shoulder, even if they are not quite as
tender and toothsome as sirloin. They
are strong and healthy and understand
that tilth fool is good enough for t heir
parents ami is good enough for them.'
"I question whether his gardener or
bis coachman would be so entirely ready
to accept such doctrine; and if the poor
peoplo to whom in times of stress his
money is given without stint are like
man' others of their class, not a few of
them would be, ill content with some of
the food materials that appear regularly

The old Connecticut pilgrim known a.
'"Jie darned man'' is dead. In young
manhood his mind was unhinged by the

for tho mt of Lis long life he tramped
tLiough the stare, always wearing liU
vedding suit. TJ:e great desire of his

cidy articles Lo over solicited were needles
and thread v yarn to mend it. As years
