Lightning for ltr-akf aMt.
says the Nebraska City News, who
live with Mrs. Wm. Morton, corner of
Eighth and Second avonue, had some
thing for breakfast that was not down
on the bill of faro, and was least ex
pected. They wore sittiug at the
table when "lightning struck a largo
tree not more than ten feet away, and
the lightning then rattled the bay
window, melted the tin spout, tore off
the screen from the screen door and
bored a hole some two inches in diam
eter in the refrigerator, and ended
its merry dance by tearing out the
west side of the refrigerator. The
house was filled with smoke of a very
sulphurous odor, and was set on fire
in two places, but it 60011 went out.
No one was injured, but none desire to
be so close to lightning again.

just as we have. During all our resi
dence iu this country, up to the year
1892, we were strongly democratic;
while we had not the glorious privi
lege of voting, all our sympathies
wore with the party of Jefferson and
David B. Hill. We used to consider
it a hard stroke of fortune or misfor
tune that we were always employed
upon republican papers. XVhen Gio-
ver was lecteu,. noooay tnrew a nai

did. Then we went to Washington
and had a long and harrowing experi
ence with southern democrats of the old
school; they are all alike, pompous and
bombastic humbugs, with a contempt
for the Nawth and Nawtheners that
age cannot wither nor custom stale.
i'hen en rue the panic in "JC, and it has
been panic ever since until the word
democracy leaves a sea green taste in
the mouth. And just now, when pros-
jMjctd are brightening, when the corn
crop is assurod, and the time for sub
scribing has arrived. Mr. Bryan
comes along with his dizzy campaign,
and ho starts out with so much bluster
and flourish of trumpets that he has
seared the country into the belief that
he may be elected, and wo are accused
of being secretly a partisan of his. Mr.
Bryan is a personal friend of this de
partment, and was long before his
name was a housonoiu woru; ne nas

cratitude; but wo wouldn't vote for
him under anv consideration in the

cracy to last us. for the next nine hun

the evening was the splendid singing
of the Lincoln Glee club. The crowd
quickly tilled the hall which contained
450 chairs and almost aa many were

One of the observers, who has been
listening to the learned discussions on
finance on the street corners, reaches
the conclusion that "the less a follow
knows about finance the louder he
talks. You hear men who could not

speaking of 'the money required per
capita to handle the business. " Ex.
Hon. C. E. Bentley, national party
candinate for president, leaves today
for an extensive tour on the stump. Mr.
Bentley spends two weeks in Indiana
and Illinois and then goes to Massachu
setts and New England for a number
of engagements. On his return from
the east Mr. Bentley wili probably go
to the Pacific coast for a few weeks and
close his campaign in Nebraska. Ohio
papers speak in high terms of the re
cent speech of Mr. Bentley in that state,
and his campaign appears to bo attract

"If lieople would remetnbor that

the knowledge would be of benefit,"
said a man of the house today. "Sun

that I had read that Hour would ex

THE LIGHTEST DRAFT MOWER MADE.
Deer! tig Roller Bearing Ideal Mower, 4 1-2 and 5-Foot Cut,
A. Round of Startling Victories
Has m irked the path of the Deering Ideal Mower. No grass is too heavy or too light, no land is too rough and do
service is too severe for this plucky little Ideal hero. Instead of friction bearings it has rollers and balls; tho crank
shaft is parallel with the ground so that the SELF-ADJUSTING PITMAN moves steadily BACK and forth in work
man like fashion: tho separated ledger plates hold the grasses like the roller of a feed cutter, and nothing can escape
or draw in under the sickle; the adjustable drag bar pays the interest on the investment.
The driver of the Ideal Mower can cut as slow as he likes and it is never necessaay to back when starting.
The use of roller and ball bearings, has eliminated friction, and instead of grinding he bearings all the power
is used in cutting grass.
