These paints we have handled for four years and
while other dealers are changing from year to

versal satisfaction. We guarantee that they will
not crack, Hake or chalk off, that they will wear
as long, if not longer, vrill look as well if not bet

forfeit the value of the paints and the cost of

D &. M- LAND OFFICE.
It Will Dlsolvo After the Resigna
tion of Auditor F. H- Leavitt.
F. II. Leavitt, auditor of the 13. is M.
land department at Lincoln, lias ten
dered his rtVi-'uatioii to take effect at the
close of this month. It is underst od
that the office which he has held for
?o many years, will be discontinued, and
such special service as is needful will be
maintained under the direction of the
land commissioner. The lands of the IJ.
& M. railroad company have been mostly
sold, and the business of the land de
partmcnt is being gradually reduced in
volume, though it must yet be some
years before the last acre of land is sold
and the last contract paid up in full.
Mr. Leavitt will continue to make his
headquarters at the B. is M. land ollice.
The ollice of laud commissioner has
been successively filled by George S.
Harris, deceased, A. E. Touzaliu, now
president of the C. B. & Northern Hail
road company, and J. D. McFarland, the
present commissioner, men of remarkable
ability and fitness for the place, each in
the time of, and under the circumstauces
peculiar to, thj-'ir several terms of service;
aud they, as also the various officers,
agents, and employes of the department,
are held in kindly rememberancH by
numerous citizens of the state who, in
earlier days, when strangers in a strange
land, met these men and found in each a
friend, and were kiudly and safely
piloted to the spot they now call home.
People are already planning and mak
ing arrangements of what they shall do
on Arbor Day, which is a custom started
in this state, and has almost reached the
popularity to be called a holliday. It
was originated in Nebraska in 1S72. since
which time it has been established in
most of ths states in the Union. Statis-
ticts show that since it was first estab
lished in this state over 355.5G0.000 trees,
forest, shade, or fruit trees have been
planted. The observance in this county
of the day April 22, should be male a
special feature this year. Appropriato
exercises should be observed in the
schools, as suggested in the notice of the
state superintendent. Ordinary lessons
should be put aside and special instruc
tion given, trees or plants should be set
out both about the school premises and
at the home, and pride taken in the work
of the day both by scholars and teacher.

It is a fact that Henry B jeck has as
complete a stock of elegant furniture at
his block on Sixth and Main streets, as
any store in Chicago. Handsome furn
shings for home and office can be pur
chased there from a fine upright piano to
a hand looking glass; at present, how
ever, a great demand is being made on
his refrigorators, which are such a com
fort during the hot summer season. Do

NORTH SIDE MAIN STREET,
PLATTSMO UTH, NEB.
- It is very gratifying to see the pains
being taken by maiy citizens this spring
in beautifying their premises. With the
aid of city water perfect lawns can be
kept, after once established, at a mini
mum expense, and they add greatly to
the appearance and value of residences.
In decorating the front yard, however, it
gives the house a better set off not to
plant too many trees. Here and there a
well kept specimen is admissable. A
nice smooth lawn neatly kept is far more
attractive than a cluster of promiscuous
trees, hiding and keeping out the view.
An evergreen or ornamental hedge is very
attractive and adds a substantial appear
ance to the house and lawn. Evergreen
hedges can be successfully grown in this
climate from Noaway spruce, or Rocky
Mountain Juniper. Arborvitte and Hem
lock, which do well farther east, do
not seem at home here. A very
beautiful hedge may be made from Rus
sian mulberry, and it affords a good crop
of small berries, which ripen in rasp
berry and cherry season, and as our na
tive song birds prefer the mulberries, the
cherry and raspberries are left to reward
the grower, who is generally well satis
fied with the bird's choice.

They wore all Boston boys, and
neighbors, playmates and constant
comrades. Appleton was a man of re
markable wit mid quaint originality,
with strong literary and artistic tastes,
which, however, did not reach the
point of high creative power. A syb
aritic temperament, favored by pros
perous circumstance, held him satis
fied all his life within the conservative
circle of the most delightful social
companionship, in which the wonder
was that the latent forces of his nature
took no definite and enduring form,
so that "Tom Appleton" rernaius only

careei's were widely severed, although
Boston was alwavs their home. Phil
lips p;issed on to the renown of a great
orator and leader in one of the noblest
causes in history; Motley won the
highest laurels of literature in the
works which record the defense and
develooment of libertv in Holland:
Appleton placidly drifting with the
current of bis time, watched with the
keenest interest and admiration the
cause of both, and if perhaps ho some
times felt, with Brownings 1 ictor

there was no hint in word or manner
that lie regretted any prize ho had
not won. Long after the college days,
and after Motley's first unprosperous
literary ventures and his diligent study
in I'll rope, he aent Appleton the sheets
of Jus "instory of the Dutch llopub
!ic." Appleton received them in New
port, where he read them with de
light, and one morning, bursting into
the roo;:i of a friend, he exclaimed.

Mr. Coylo says that it is one of the
amusements of West Africa to show
strangers how a Fantee boy can sleep.
A friend of his wishing to rouse sonic
servants and send them to close the
shutters and lock the doors, said to
him, "I'll show you something which
you wouldn't believe on hearsay."
Thereon ho grasped a boy by the
heels, dragged him a yard or so, turned
him over, and roughly lifted him to a
sitting posture; the youth sat up, rub
bed his eyes, scratched his head, and
went to sleep again as he lay. To an
other he did the same, with a like re
sult. Having thus got the two alongside,
fast asleep, he dragged one on top of
the other, and left them a moment;
they slumbered placidly in that posi
tion. He then ran amuck at them, be
ing in slippers, and upset the pair, and
ordered them loudly to close the shut
ters. They both got up, eyes wide
open, and apparently conscious; one
walked gravely down stairs, the other
retired, with all semblance of reason,
to the pantry alongside.
The one who went down came up
again in two minutes, still with his
eyes wide open, and leisurely lay
down to sleep again; the other we
found fast snoozing in the pantry on a
stool. We took them up, and shook
them violently; they rubbed them
selves, and went to sleep again.
Dragging them into the dining
room, without a word, they silently
set about their work, fastening shut
ters and doors.
"Do you think they are awake?"

I did so. No response. I repeated

to sleep upon their mats, fast stupe
