It is commonplace to speak of rumors,
oral and other, as only "newspaper
talk. " A good example of 'newspaper
talk" is the reported election of Taft
U the presidency of the United States.
Hi election has not yet been officially
declared. That Me is actually the
choice of the people of the United
Stttes for president is vnly "newspaper
talk." Most likely the report will be
verified. Why? Because the news
papers, as ia usual with them, have
goae to the most trustworthy sources
of information on the subject. If, how
ever, it should turn out that the coun
ters made grave errors in the reports
supplied to the press, and that Mr.
Bryan or Debs.or Mr. Chaffin or Mr.
Preston was chosen,' do not blatne us.
Like the organist in the cowboy church,
we are doing the beat we can.
Sources of information, like all things
human are fallible. For instance, al
though Mr. Bonaparte, several months
ago, denied that he made a certain
speech, Mr. Beck, only the other day,
quoted the speech as genuine. Re
porters who once heard Henry Ward
Beecher deliver a lecture, accurately
reported him as saying that the Dec
laration of Independence delares "all
men are born free and equal." When
a treat divine is so inaccurate, would
it be fair to blame the newspapers?
If Shakespeare can put a seacoast
on Bohemia, and Dickens represent the
school boys of "Dotheboys" Hall"
weeding a garden in wintor, why be so
sever, dear critic on "newspaper talk?"
Prof. Huxley, in an essay, makes
the same mistake about the Declaration
of Independence that Beecher did. So,
you see, the reporter must be wary of
the scientist, too, although he is sup
posed to be the paragon of accuracy.
But should not Huxley have made such
a mistake and thereby misled the poor
reporter? If a reporter had gone to
Aristotle, a philosopher besides whom
Huxley is a pigmy, and asked him
which had the more teeth, man or
woman, the Greek would have replied
"man." But up-to-date newspaper
men would, wo believe, even at the
risk of losing a finger, try to find out if
Aristotle's answer was correct. Phila

THE MAN FOR THE JOB
Senator Knox Prepared to Hold
Down Position of Secre
tary of State.
The New York Evening Post in com
menting on the fitness of Senator
Knox for the position of secretary of
state, to which responsible place Mr.
Taft is about to call the senator, says:
Senator Knox's acceptance of the
State department assures a steady, un
emotional and thoroughly competei t
conduct of foreign relations under the
new administration. In seeking a secre
tary of this type Mr. Taft shows, what
was otherwise abundantly evident, that
he wants quiet, but able, men abcut
him. It is impossible to imagine. Mr.
Knox doing anything explosive. The
fact that he had been a corporation
lawyer, and that by his exposure of
the unconstitutionality of Mr. Roose
velt's original railway rates bill, he got
on the list of undesirables, has not de
terred Mr. Taft in looking for special
skill and the judicial temperament
wherever they were to be found. He
is quoted as say that Senator Knox was
not merely a man in public life who
was a highly qualified secretary, but
the "only one. " This is a little hard
on the others.

At the Residence of Mr. and
Mrs. E. H. Wescott For
Miss Ina Randall.
A very pleasant pre-nuptial party in
honor of Miss Ina Randall was bekl at
the residence of Mr. and Mrs. E. II.
Wescott last Monday afternoon. The
function was participated in by fourteen
young ladies, members of the Euterpian
Glee club, of which the guest of honor
was an efficient member. A most uni
que form of entertainment was adopted
for the afternoon, and consisted in each
guest writing a description of the wed
ding of the other members of the club.
Some of these were startling, in their
originality, and caused no end of mer
riment among the fourteen lady mem
bers of the club who were present. We
regret the hostess burned these valu
able additions to Nebraska literature
before they were given to the press.
Delightful refreshments were served
the happy company, and before it dis
persed the club presented Miss Randall
a handsome set of silver spoons, which
rhe accepted in a neat speech.

Primary Grades of City Schools I
Give Fine Entertainment
The teachers of the grades, beginning !
with the primary and upward gave one i
of the finest Christmas entertainments
at the High school building nt the
close of the term, that has ever been
presented to the public by the Platts-
mouth schools. The attendance was i
excellent and the receipts very satis-;
The entertainment was a cantata i
entitled "The Teddy Bear's Christmas."
Twenty-two of the primary boys were
costumed as little bears, mostly of the ;
brown bear species, while sixteen of
the little primary girls were dressed as
fairies. The cantata opened with a
woodland scene in which appeared a
father and mother bear with a daugh-!
terandson and two cubs, "Nickie"
and "Slickie," while up a tree sat an 1
owl which hooted lonesomely. Before I
the scene closed a sleigh dashed up '
with a load of city bears. Soon there j
was a wooing and a marriage of the
country son and daughter to the city i
bears soon followed. The ceremony !
was performed by the owl and was a
Some very fine ducts and choruso3
were sung by the Teddys, shortly after
tho wedding scene, a hunter and hounds j
appeared in the distance and the bear '
company broke up hurriedly and all i
took to the woods. He was a brave j
hunter and gave an inventory of his i
fighting qualities in a song, which was
very well rendered. Hardly had his j
song died away when two huge bears j
i ut in an appearance, and it was the j
brave hunter's turn to take to his heel?.
A Santa Claus bear soon came on
greatly to the delight of the little:
Teddys. The owl sang a solo "Look
Wise." Irvan Cooper took the part of j
the owl and sang his solo nicely. The
closing scene was a fitting climax to
this splendid program. In this scene I
everyone which had been in the pre
vious scenes of the cantata, were on
the stage, making a most beautiful ,

the grade teachers are to be congratu

How Taft Will Measure up with
two of his Illustrious
An Ohio editor places an estimate on
our next presidect making tho follow
Judge Taf t's eloquent eulogy of the
late President McKinley causes many to
attempt a readjustment of their esti
mate of the character of the next presi
dent. They had been led to believe
that Mr. Taft would be a second Roose
velt; a little less Btrenuous and less in
clined to fly in the face of proprieties,
perhaps, but still a continuation of the
man who made him his successor. The
president-elect spoke of Mr. McKinely
in a way, however, to indicate that he
would try to model his personality and
his administration after the last Ohioan
instead of the last New Yorker, to oc
cupy the presidential chair.
It is manifestly unfair to Judga Taft
to say that he will be either another
McKinley or another Roosevelt. The
nation will like him better if he adopts
whatever was best in the administra
tion of each of his two predecessors, j
add to them whatever original good '
qualities he may possess and give the
people what they have by their votes
decreed shall be given them a Taft
admistration. Let Mr. Taft be not an- j
other McKinley nor another Roosevelt,
but just Taft.
Touching on the value of eulogy, how
ever, as an indication of future conduct
it might be worth while to recall what
Mr. Roosevelt said at the bier of Mc
Kinley and how thoroughly he has in
the latter years of his official life shat
tered,; every hope raised by that softly
spoken promise. Cleveland Plain

In' Police Court.
Wednesday was a busy day-
Judge Archer both the criminal and
civil sides of the court did consider
able business. Policeman John Corey
who left early Tuesday rooming to
round up two farmers near Rock. Bluffs
charged with desecrating the city speed
ordinance by rushing their horses on
Main street, returned Wednesday
morning with his prey and returned his
warrant to the Judge duly served.
The Judge drew from his drawer a de
cision which read something like this,
"five dollars and costs " The costs
were twenty cents less than the
fine so that all that young Schwab
and Tigner had to raise was $9.80 each.
On the civil side of the court
were a few attachments, one brought
by C. D. Quinton, for money to M. W.
Pratt, when he needed funds to search
for his spouse who had fled to South
Dakota. This attachment was levied
on a gray mare and the case was con
tinued to January SOth for service, as
the defendant is sworn to be out of
the state.. .
Yet another attachment is out for
the property of the same defendant,
this in favor of Dr. A. P. Barnes,
dental work done for the same gray
mare. The tangle ia almost as bad as
