As a preliminary step to the race of 1912, W. J. Bryan has recently joined the Eagles. "The people must rule." The year of 1908 has been one of the hardest on fire insurance companies, and some of the strong one's have rein sured their risks and quit the field. The disastrous forest fires in the north have been a heavy drain on the accu-" mulated surpluses of the companies, j Yet there are those who claim that in surance rates are too high. The Beatrice Express changed hands : the first of the year, the new owners' being Henry W. Munson of Lincoln and Frank O. Edgecombe of Geneva, re-! cently associated together in the publi- j cation of the Nebraska Farmer. The j Express has been one of our most val- j ued exchanges and we note with pleas- j ure that the new management will rc- j tnin E. W. Huse as editor. Leading democrats of Topeka have j organized forhe purpose of starting a ! daily paper in the interests of Mr. j Bryan's campaign for the presidency ; at the end of Mr. Taft's term. And it is said that similar organizations are to be effected in every county in every i state in the union. Business men who i had hoped that the election would set-1 i tie matters, it seems, are not to have j their hopes realized. Last Friday, New Year's Day, Pres ident Roosevelt kept open house fcr the last time during his admfhistration. He stood in lino for three hour.-? while the Washingtonians of every color and condition filed past and grasped his out stretched hand. Seldom has a presi dent filled the chair who has been ns strong a champion of the rights of the whole people.

In discussing the municipal owner nership idca a prominent business man recently he expressed the fear that under that system inefficiency and gross mfeifianajffmer.t would be the rule. The News-Herald assures him that his fe3rs are groundlesss. Statis tics prove the contrary, and the infor mation rosy be obtained in our own state that municipal ownership is proving n ideal solution to several vexing problems. Charles P. Taft's withdrawal from the senatorial race in Ohio will redound to his credit all over the nation. The fact that he was a brother of the president-elect would not require the renun ciation of any of his personal ambitions, and the fact that he was big enough and broad enough to sacrifice his own aspirations on the altar of his country's good, when that opinion was anything but unanimous, stamps him as a man of the first magninude. Ohio has fur nished the nation with many illustrious men, and cf these Charles P. Taf t 13 nf)t e least Plattsmouth the old town on the Muddy just below where the Platte empties itsjsand-laden waters into the larger river, and makes a pale streak down the west side of the murky stream Plattsmouth, which in the early days had every prospect of becoming the metropo lis of Nebraska, but failed owing, not to locality or topographical condition, but by reason of internal indifference and short sightedness Plattsmouth, the town which has had its ups and downs, which has flourished, boomed, faded and retro graded, and suffered from various vicissitudes, from floods, fires and fickle fortune is, apparently, com ing ouLof its shell of desuetude and getting busy. The younger geneta tion is taking hold of the reins of public affairs, and a dawn of a new era is breaking. They have orgar -ized a commercial club. There is no town, large or small, which can keep abreast of her neighbors and up to the times withcut the active and constant operation of a live and agressive commercial club. When is Red Oak going to get busy along this line. Red Oak (la.) Ex press. Thank you, brother. And we believe that our younger generation is cim poscd of just enough vim," vign- ?.m virility to) accomplish that which it wills. Our commercial club starts out most auspiciously and the "dawn of a new era" is rosy with promise. Teachers Take to Matrimony. Contrary to the general belief, mat- j rimony plays havoc with the teaching j force in the state of Nebraska. Most , of the teachers are women. Not long TO US i HERALD VL I J !7 ago a woman teacher who had taught ; e ' for twenty-five years was given a pub- t . . , ... i for her services. A prominent business man living in the same town got to thinking over the esteem in which she was held and decided that he thought a great deal of the lady himself so he proposed marriage ane was accepted and there will be no more public recep tions to teachers in that town. County Superintendent S. A. Reason er of Buffalo county, with headquarters at Kearney, sends a tale of woe to State Superintendent McBrien. He re grets to report that there are twelve vacancies in the teaching force of his county, and sad to relate, most of the vacancies are due to matrimony. He does not blame the women teachers entirely, because in each instance there wa3 a man in the case. William Haw ley Smith often advised teachers not to leave a $50 job for a $23 man and the women teachers of Nebraska have gen erally livad up to this." However, some of them have taken the $50 man. Lin coln Journal. Our city council is certainly afraid of the light proposition. Habit has a strangle hold on most of i us. Do you invariably write it iwj.' First thing the weather man knows some fool body will be worrying about a shortage in the ice crop. j a golf enthusiast of j While Taft is the first water, Sherman is a baseball fan among fans. Their office boys will doubtless preserve these facts for fu ture reference. While we are having our municipal trials in securing an adequate light and power service, our sister city of 15ea trice is wrestling with the question of n better water supply. F.USINESS men of Plattsmouth should lend their best endeavors to the work of the commercial club. This organiza tion can be of almost infinite benefit to our municipality if we will but take hold and boost. At least one guaranty bank law bill has already been framed and will be introduced in the senate as sooVi as that body convenes. Senator Volpp, representing Washington and Dodge I counties, is the father of the measure, and the Scribner News says it is a "com pliment to its author." Henry C. Richmond seems to be in the fight to the finish for chief clerk of the house. He should have it if he wants it, handed to him on silver plat ter, but the state will be infinitely the winner if the other man pulls down the persimmon. It isn't much of a trick to make a chief clerk, but good newspaper men are scarce. A reader inquires what effect Mr. Roosevelt's retirement will have on the business of the stork. We frankly ad mit that we don't know much about it, but it is our opinion that the pres ident's influence in this particular has been popularly overestimated. And late advice3 from Cincinnati seem to confirm this view. The juvenile court as conducted in some of the large cities of the country is proving a potent factor in dealing with the criminal tendencies of the young. They are of incalculable good to a community when presided over by men so eminently fitted for the work as Judge Lee Estelle of Omaha, and j Judge Ben Lindsey of Denver. Keepinc everlastingly at it is what counts. Have you a cherished ambi tion? Would you better your condition in life? Are you dissatisfied with what you are accomplishing? Are you satis fied with your caliber? Then resolve that what you want is yours, give your best endeavors to its accomplishment cess will surely follow. IN THE HANDS OF FRIENDS.

By a small majority the democrats carried Nebraska at the recent election and now itseem9 that there are two kind. of democrats in the new legisla ture, one 'kind considering the party platform too radical on the state guar antee of bank deposits. Nebraska would be better off if it had not turned its election into a personal compliment. St. Louis Globe-Democrat. rr; RFPUBLICANS ARE THAT WAY. Despite the exaggerated professions of scepticism on the part of some very superior critics of all things that are, it looks more and more as if the repub lican majority at Washington would loyally fulfill its promise of tariff re vision, and that according to the reason able rule that the way to revise is to revise. New York Tribune. HIS MONEY WELL EMPLOYED. If thes report were true that Andrew Carnegie had provided $150,000 to carry on the Pittsburg inquiry into municipal corruption he would have initiated a de sirable form of moral philanthropy. Endowment funds for the exposure and prosecution of boodling are a novelty which may ultimately appeal to million aire bounty am1 in which there are abund ant opportunities for possessors of swollen fortunes to avert the disgrace of dying rich. New York World, rr: IS JOHN A DEMOCRAT? At a recent Fontanelle club dinner, j0hn L. Webster attacked the Drimarv system, which he said had not brought the results anticipated, and urged that we should do well to revert to the old system of county and Trtate conven tions, where men got together for ex change of ideas and to receive the en thusiasm which only personal contact affords, afterward returning to their constituents not only to communicate to them this enthusiasm but a clearer understanding of the party platforms. ; State Journal. A HARMLESS OCCUPATION. Almost anybody who reads the news papers can sit down with a paper and pencil and build a cabinet for the nex president of the United States. All that is required is a knowledge of people who bulk large in their various profes sions and consideration of those who lUe F. H. Hitchcock, have performed notable services for the party, Buch as running a steam roller. Cabinet-making for persons who have nothing else to do do is almost as interesting as fit ting together one of those cardloard puzzles. Among the nine cabinet of fices it is almost impossible not to guess at least one, and so every person who has nothing else to do is making his little guess. Quite a harmless oc cupation, assuredly. Pittsburg Post. Stand up for your own rights if you would command the respect of your fellows. This applies to communities as well as individuals. Hence the need for a strong, active commercial club. Now is the time to commence your advertising campaign for 1909. Strong well-directed publicity is a bigger factor today in the business world than ever before.

My mother was troubled for a rrood manv vears with a skin irritation on one of heri feet. Despite the fact that she tried ; remedies of various kinds no relief was ; obtained until she used Doan's Oint- ' ment which by chance she learned about : and procured at Gering & Co.

I also used Doan's Ointment for a terrible itching on my right hand and wrist. A few applications reduced the inflammation and stopped the itching. I have had slight touches of the trouble since but an appeal to Doan's Ointment has always given me relief. We are never without this splendid preparation in the house, finding it invaluable."
