The history of the world shows that
there never was a really great man, a
man who accomplished great tilings,
but that when he set out to carry out
the plans which he sought to bring
about, but what he was misunderstood
and villified and held up to ridicule.
Look back over the history of the world
and take the men who have accom
plished results, the men who have done
things, and you will find that when
they began on the plan they had laid
out that nothing too mean could
be said of them. Aldrich is called a
robber, and other things, yet the time
may come when the world will be as
anxious to hail him as agrcat man as it
has been in the past to pay tribute to
others who only a short time before
they had no use for. (Jive the men w ho
are trying to do something a chance to
make good. The editor of this paper
does not claim to know very much
about the banking and money sys
tems of the country, and therefore
doew not propose to criticise those
who do, and who may, for all we know,
be doing their very best to bring about
good results. We prefer to keep quiet
a little while longer and give them a
chance to make good, rather than show
our ignorance by criticising something
we know nothing about.
When you elect a man to office, put
your Bhouldcr to the wheel and help
him to make good. If the people have
enough confidence in him to elect him
they ought to be fair enough to give
him a chance to make good. Boost
him along. Don't stand ofT at a dis
tance and throw cudgels in his road for
him to fall over. Help him witli your
good words of encouragement. This
continual howling against public offi
cials shows poor taste and poorer judg
ment. These Drew Prizes.

A False Report.
Upon my return from the Centennial
Convention of the Christian churches
which was recently held in Pittsburg,
the Xews-Hcrald gave what purported
to be an interview with myself concern
ing the convention in which I was made
to repeat a false report which had been
previously published in the press of the
country regarding the attitude of the
Christian church on the subject of bap
tism. This report as published stated
that an entering wedge had been made
by the convention looking toward a
broadening of the views of the Christian
church concerning baptism and that it
would likely be possible before long for
candidates to choose their form of bap
In justice to myself and to the con
vention I would say that I made no
such report to anyone, and that to my
knowledge no action was taken by the
convention that could justify the cir
culation of any such report. If the re
port hail said that a certain layman by
the name of Church, who was imbued
with destructive criticism was almost
hissed off the platform during one of
the sessions for venturing to suggest
that the Christian church should take
such action in regard to baptism, it
would have been correct. At a follow
ing session of the convention a resolu
tion to not publish this man's speech
in the report of the convention was
carried unanimously and with much
enthusiasm. This does not look like
an "entering wedge."'
Judging from the spirit of the con
vention I would say that the Christian
church has no desire to change any of
God's ordinances, and even if it had,
it is my opinion that the court of Heav
en would not grant the request.
It is well to remember that the head
of the Church is Christ, and that to
Him belongs all legislative power in
heaven and on earth. The Christian
church knows this and it will likely be a
long time before it will begin to pre
sume the right to change anything
which God has decreed.
Holds Up Family.
KEWANEE, 111., Nov. 11 The
family of John Powers, near this city,
was held up by a bandit heavily armed
last night. Powers, his son and two
hired men were bound with ropes and
the women folks were forced to go into
the kitchen where he locked them in.
He was unable to find any money, but
he forced Powers to sign a check for
S")0 and then compelling the son to
hitch up a horse and buggy, made him
drive him to town where he cashed the
check and hiked for the tall timber,
where nil efforts to locate him proved

and was given a pair of leather breech

presentation was made at a noon-day

At a speech in the evening he empha
sized the fact that people should not be
in a hurry to criticise the monetary
methods which were under consider
ation. He said the idea was to have a
system which would lie of benefit to
the whole country and not to any par
ticular section. In speaking of the
situation he said:
"Really, it is a very serious condi
tion. There is more or less embar
rassment of riches about it. We have
25,000banks and will soon have 50,000.
We are going to have the greatest sur
plus eapital of the world in the United
States soon; and we have a great
many things to think about. And I
am going to ask you, by and by, to
help me think about it. It is very
important that somebody should do a
great deal of thinking. It is your duty
as well as mine to take such steps'ns
you can to perpetuate the present
prosperity of the country.

After reading the public statement
of this representative citizen of Platte

this conclusion: A remedy which cured
years ago, which has kept the kidneys
in good health since, can be relied up
on to perform the same work in other
cases. , Read this:
J. W. Hickson. Oak Street, riatts
mouth, Nebr., says: "I will never
cease to praise Doan's Kidney Pills,
as they were of such great benefit to
me several years ago. My kidneys and
back were a source of constant suffer
ing and I was subject to attacks of
lumbago that came on without the
least warning. The simplest move
ment was painful and I was anoyed
more or less by the irregular passages
of the kidney secretions. I read bo
much about Doan's Kidney Pills, that
I finally procured a box from Gering &
Co. 's drug store. I was so gratified
with the results of their use that I
publicly endorsed them in 1906 and at
this time, I heartily renew that state
ment. I hope that other kidney suf
ferers will profit by my experience."
