I know a spot, a sunny nook.
Where barefoot babies cone to play,
Where nature's best unfolded book
Beveals its teachings all the day. t
There where the tiger lily lifts
Its haughty face to greet the smile
Of sky blue heaven's snowy drifts
Come naught of worldly care nor guile.
There, close beside a rippling stream
The barefoot babies laugh and prance
And toss their yellow locks that gleam
Like tasseled corn in breeze's dance.
Dear barefoot babies, reap the sweet
Of youth and life and dance your best.
'Twill come dreamlike from years' re

THEY WERE BEARS.
How m Hunter Bagged av Ton of Them In
"I believe I got aa big a bag of bears
in aa short a time as any man ever did,"
said Doc Stadley, the ex-sheriff and beat
hunter of Mendocino.
"A bag of bears?" exclaimed the
yonng man who had just been telling
about a bag of snipe be had once killed.
"What were they little fellows? What
is it you call them kittens? No, cubs;
"No, sir. They were not kittens or
cubs. They were bears," declared Doc.
"I think I piled up about a ton of bear
meat in about SO seconds. I was out
hunting in the southern part of Trinity
county about 17 or 18 years ago. We
had killed about 40 deer and 3 panthers
and a bear or two in a couple of weeks,
and were pretty near ready to break
camp when I thought I would go out
and kill another deer to take home
fresh. It was late in the afternoon, and
I was creeping along in the brush, when
suddenly I came out into a little open
ing. I stopped to Fee if there was any
sign of deer, and while I stood looking
about a big black bear climbed up on
the trunk of a big fir tree that had been
uprooted. He wasn't 80 yards away,
and I plugged him in the ear. He rolled
off the log and down the hill toward me,
but before I had time to see if he was
dead another bear climbed up on that
same log to see what the row was about.
I. shot .it in the head, and it. rolled
down the same way the other had gone.
Up climbed a big 2-year-old to take its
place, and after I had shot it two big
yearlings, one after the other, climbed
up on the log to be shot.
"Every one rolled down the hill to
ward me and was kicking and thrash
ing around not ten steps away. By that
tinM I came to the conclusion that I was
in a bear country, and I didn't lose any
time olimbing a sapling. When I got
well braced up among the limbs, I sat
and pumped lead into that pile of bears.
Every time one kicked 1 gave nim a
bullet, till they all stopped kicking. I
had five bears in one pile, and I' think
they must have weighed over a ton al
together." San Francisco P .
Learning a Foreign Language.
Borne interesting statistics might be
collected on the effect upon linguistic
power and accent of the possession of a
musical ear. It would 6eem that a per
son with a good ear for music would be
more rapid in the acquirement of a for
eign tongue, and having acquired it
would possess a more perfect pronuncia
tion of the sounds than would a person
not having the same ready musical gift.
Similarly such a person would be
quick to attain the dialect of the coun
try in which he might be living and to
adapt his speech to the brogue or pro
vincialism with which he found his ears
The greater rapidity with which Ger
mans, .roles and .Russians learn the
English language is surely not to be ao
counted for merely by stating that their
own more nearly resembles our language
than does that of the French or Italian.
A Greek, for instance, learns English in
about half the time it takes an Italian
to acquire French, and a Russian will
peak French, English and German in
the same period that a Frenchman will
acquire a mere smattering of the two
latter. Pearson's Weekly.
Tha Southern Aurora.
On. Feb. 1, in latitude 66 degrees,
longitude 172 degrees 81 minutes, we
ran into, open water again, having this
time spent only six days in the ice pack.
On the 17th the aurora appeared, stron
ger than I ever saw it in the north. It
rose from the southwest, stretching in
broad stream up toward .the zenith
and down again toward the eastern hor.
izon. The phenomenon this time had
quite a different appearance from what
we saw on Oct. 20.- It now presented
long shining curtains rising and falling
in wonderful shapes and shades,, some
times seemingly closedown to our mast
heads. It evidently exerted considerable
influence upon the magnetic needle of
our compass. C. E. Borchgrevlnk in
There's no such thing in this life as
complete satisfaction. If a man has no
money, he is miserable, and if he has
lots of it, it is next to impossible to in
vest it remuneratively. There is no busi.
cess which is sure to pay, not even the
business of stealing, but that's because
thereare so many persons in it, and
there would be many more in it if the
penitentiary did not prevent it from be
ing open to everybody, and so be utter
ly ruined. Boston Transcript.

We are In the Swim With a uraed...
...New Stock of Seasonable Goods 1
IT WILL be a pleasure for you to call and examine it. It is large, adapted to every personal demand. It is large, calculated to suit every taste. It is complete, taking with- 5
in its scope the best and the latest that the world's markets afford, selected personally during a recent trip to the Eastern markets, by a visit to all the leading- wholesalers,
and includes the best we could find from each of them. In our selection of stock we have been guided by one unvarying principle: to secure the TUB VERY best. Where style 3
was the consideration we have insisted on grades faultlessly fashioned. In all classes of goods we demanded those that look best, wear best, sell best, and were, in fact, the best
and newest procurable. These we purchased carefully and methodically, buying closely and figuring a narrow margin of profit, so that we could offer the same for less than the
ordinary cost. In this way we have secured some exclusive and surpassed lines. We were insured grace of design and sterling merit of value, line material, skilled workmanship
good grade articles made on the latest approved methods in fact the kind of a stock in which a merchant may feel entire confidence and which the public stamp with the zeal of
gratified approval, by buying and talking about it afterwords.

Plattsmouth by storm. In the very large
cities you will see these silks, rarely anywhere
else never any cheaper.
The One Point
of Special Interest

ladies making a purchase of a dress pattern
that there will not be another like it in town.

pleasing, colors are safe, winning, and values

magic it is that brings you such excellent
fabrics for so little money?
Special Shoe Sale

many to enumerate intelligently, but when you
need shoes, and buy elsewhere, "you'll be sorry
when you see" the bargains that we areoffering.
Other dealers are not "in it" when it comes to
shoe values. Wo carry the largest shoe stock

regular shoe dealers.

Prettiest Wash Fabrics

The Cow Settled For -
Thomas D. Harding, who had his
cow stolen last Tuesday night from
his home in Greggsport, and after
wards sold to Mike Gardner; who
butchered it, has secured a satisfactory
settlement with Mr. Gardner and will
not bring any criminal proceedings
against that gentleman and his cm
ployes, as he threatened to do. Both
parties will now bend their energies
to see that W. II. Roderick, who did
the stealing, gets tho full benefit of
the law and does service for the state
for-a term of years. Under the now
criminal law the value of a cow does
not make any difference, and a thief
can be as easily sent up for a term of
years for stealing a $5 or $10 cow as
though the cow was worth $100. Those
who contemplate borrowing their
neighbor's cow without their consent
will do well to remember this fact.
