And now comes a turn in affairs
The admiuidUatioo has commenced
the work of reducing the standing
army. In Cuba the number of soldiers
is to be reduced about one half. In the
Philippines military operations are at
an end and a system of police service
is being instituted. The next thing
we know, soldiers will begin to return
from the orient e.a well as f rem Cu a
and the bug-a-boo of imperialism &nd
militaryism will have vanished like a
passing- cloud in summer. There is no
party in the world so set against a
standing army or a military form of
government as is the republican party,
but be it said to the credit of that
party, it never goes into business
by halves. The trouble with Spain
and the speedy settlement of all
matters pertaining thereto is con
clusive evidence of the above assertion,
to say nothing with reference to the
speedy manner in which they dispelled
the financial and commercial panic of
1896. When that bug-a-boo of mili
taryism shall become as dead as is
the issue of free si'ver then there will
be left do cause for being a democrat
of the fusion stripe.

man to be. The News sincerely be

be held responsible for results? For
five years Cleveland has left the hir

all persons wishing to marry, with
authority to refuse a license to those

law would doubtless result in an in

Exhaustive estimates have just been
published of the cost of living at Yale.
From 8S0O to $1,000 is considered
enough for the average student. The
investigations show that Yale men are
spending less for drink than they did
a decade ago, and. are more liberally
contributing to religious and philan
thropic societies. The total cost, too,
of going to college is less than it used
to be. In this improved showing ath
letics play a not unimportant part, es
pecially at Yale, where the induce
ments to athletic success are strong
enough to make men willing to under
go considerable privations for the
sake of helping their college. And
self-denial, even for mere success at
athletics, reacts in a beneficial way on
them that practice it.
A new one was worked in Beatrice
recently. A stranger (it was probably
Richard Roe in disguhe) called upon
a prominent dentist, groaning horri
bly with the toothache. He explained
between groans, that he had suffered
so long that an alchoholic stimulant
was necessary before he could undergo
any work on his teeth. He would not
enter a saloon under any circum
stances, and, being a stranger, could
not buy what he wanted at a drug
store. Thereupon the dentist cheer
fully volunteered to get him a little
whiskey, and went away and pur
chased a four ounce bottle of it. Then
he returned and handed the poison to
the btranger, and went into his little
dark room to get his instruments
ready for the torture. When he
emerged from the room, ready for bus
iness, the stranger and tbe bottle had
disappeared, and haven't been seen
since. Ibis is an absolutely new
dodge in Beatrice, and it is particu
larly funny because the dentist who
was so successfully worked is an active
prohibitionist. -Beatrice Express.

A peculiar condition of affairs has
recently been discovered by the stock
men of the Larmie (Wyo.) plains.
For some time past wolf hunters have
been bringing in the pelts of dogs and
collecting bounties on the same as pre
datory wild animals. The hunters
have each time mide affidavit that
they killed the animals among the
haunts of wolves and coyotes. This
has led to an investigation, which dis
closes the fact tnat dogs have been en
ticed away from the ranches by wolves
and coootes, and have taken up resi
dence among the wild animals. The
result has been that the pests have
been breeding rapidly with the as
sistance of the domesticated animals,
which accounts for tbe presenting of
dog pelts for bounty. An effort will
be made to kill off all of the renesrade
dogs and from this time on, only a cer
tain breed of canine will be kept on
the ran cbes.

the spring months, but it is really the
worst month of the winter, and wise
people always dread its coming and

mean. By the way. most novelist
make their heroines cf the "many
moods" variety, changeable as the
waves of the sea, and we never could
understand why they do so, as such
women are a trial. March kills off
more people than any other month;

" General Passenger Agent Francis of
the Burlingtoa, at Omaha, received a
un qu- letter ttie other day. It read
"I want to go to San Francisco March
1." Mr. Francis says that this is the
briefest communication of the kind he
ever received. Most people, when
they write for information about a
prospective journey, ask from ten to
thirty questions, and it is a relief for
a passenger man to reply to a com
munication as much to the point us
this one was.
Oa its face it may appear to bo a
small matter, but in reality the ann
ouncement that tbe Burlington road
will begin running a solid train from
St. Louis through to Seattle is full of
significance. It practic.illy means an
other transcontinental line from the
leading metropolis of the Pacific
Northwest to the leading metropolis
of the Mississippi Valley. It means
that the Northwest is to be brought in
to still closer relations with the Mid
dle West through easier facilities of
communication, and emphasizes the
eagerness displayed by the great trunk
systems to get in touch with the com
ing gateway to the Orient and the
North. Seattle Post lnte'ligencer.
