TO SAVE THE COYOTE.
For the first time in all history, it is
believed, the coyote who serenades the
moon to a distraction of wierdness has
a defender. -The fruit growers of the
j northwest find the jack rabbit a multi
plying ' enemy, His appetite for the
bark of young rfroite trees concerns
! them greatly. They reflect that the
hunted and all but exterminated coyote
is the only thing on earth that can arid
docs run down a jack rabbit, and so
they propose laws ordering man's hands;
to no longer be raised against the coy
ote. What the poultrymen think of this
ha.s not yet been reported. The most
significant point to the situation is the
admission it involves that the balance
of nature cannot' be disturbed by the
extermination of even so sneaking dirty
and altogether unlovely a beast as the
many tongued coyote without unexpect
ed and menacing results. It suggests,
moreover, something of interest to Ne
braska. May not' Mr. E. F. Stephens'
devoted efforts to turn the sand hills in
to a land of orchards end in time the
biennial demand for a bounty on wolf
scalps? -State Journal.

The Farmer's institute which meets
at the District court room in this city
December 30 and January 1 is being
extensively advertised. The secretary
W. C. Ramsey has had some fine pos
ters printed on cardboard outlining the
program for the two days. Since the
programs were prepared AT. O. Eld
ridge a specialist on roads ha been se
cured to address the institute on the
last day of the session. Mr. Eldridge
is connected with the interior depart
ment of the government, and has de
voted years to the subject of good
roads. It will be worth while to hear
his lecture on this important subject.
Farmers are as much interested in
eettinjr their products to market as
I 'he merchants are in having them do
j so, and the transportation of the farm
j products can be much facilitated by
, proper attention to the subject of roads.
TnE people of Havelock have a griev
ance against tho Lincoln Traction Com
lany, and public sympathy is with them
i.i their effort to obtain concessions in
r.ites and other accommodations.
'.But Havelock is injured by the ae-
ions', of the few men and boys who
tried to work damage upon the prop
erty of the company. That is not the
wa to fight, and that is not the way
the majority of people in Havelock bc
lievo in fighting. Havelock is not that
kiod of a community, and the disorder
of ilonday night must not be charged
agair st the town as a whole.
So. far as the individual offenders aie
concerned, the names of most of them
areltrown and they will probably be
dealt with as they deserve. But the
lawless acts of the few should not be
held jagainet the entire town, which as
a whole is as orderly as any community
It IS to be regretted that the leaders
of tho 1 iboring class have seen lit to
push their ideas of what is legal and
right totiie extent of forfeiting their
privilege "of liberty. No one will deny
the laborer, or anyone else, the right to
trade with whom he pleases; but the
law stops, vith this and does not accord
him the privilege of forbidding others
from trading with a concern distaste
ful to him. The infliction of drastic
jail sentences upon Gompers, .Morrison
and Mitchell, president, secretary and
vice president of the American Federa

them from ; placing on the "unfair" or

C3mcs like chip of thunder out of a

ment of the labor loaders nor Mr.
Gompers well-worded "reasun why

the situation. The : tenseness of the
struggle is regretted' by conservative
men in all walks of life.

Can you remember when you thought
there was a real Santa Claus? How
Christmas was . looked forward to for
weeks with fondest anticipations, and
finally how you carefully hung up your
stocking where. Santa could find it with
the least trouble and then tried to com
pose yourself to sleep, with a calm con
fidence that upon awakening your hopes
would be realized? Sweet are the days
"Summer Is Over" is the title of a
new song just, published by Mrs. G. F.
S. Burton of this city. The poetry is
admirable and tho music quite up to
Mrs. Burton's standard of excellence.
One sometimes wonders what t an be
the excuse for the infliction upon the
public of much of 'the socalled music of
today, and at such times a production
of the character of "Summer Is Over"
is hailed with delight.
A couple of strangers dropped into
town one day this week and gathered
in about $25 on an advertising scheme
the value of which (to the advertisers)
was questionable to say the least.
It is noticeable, however, that those
who spend any considerable sum annu
ally for publicity, confine their appro
priations to legitimate channels, and
they do so because experience has
proven the wisdom of this course.
Henry Speck, Geroge Morrison ahd
Oleander Barnes, the triumvirate of
irrepressibles responsible for the me
chanical efficiency of this household
necessity, have joined in a petition to
Santa Claus to be remembered in the
distribution of good cheer tomorrow.
Speck thinks he cofcltl be perfectly hap
py with a sack of Duke's Mixture,
Morrison wants a teddy bear, while
Barnes avers that he would be satisfied
with a string-of beads.
It has been suggested that the mer
chants of Plattsmouth might find it
profitable to agree upon a date and
hold a big discount sale the latter pait
of January, the object being to sort up
stock by cleaning out the odds and ends
before the arrival of the spring in
voices, and in doing so to make prices
that will draw trade for miles around
ancTserve as an object lesson to all be
holders that, barring possibly a little
better display, better merchandising
may be done at - home than in Omaha
or any other town. As a special in
ducement to the outside, trade arrange
ments might be made to refund railroad
fare; to purchasers of a stipulated
amount.. The News-Herald believes
the suggestion to be a good one and
would be glad to see it carried to a sue;
