ffHE lack of rain all over the western

extent. For fear that the entire sea

We are on dangerous ground in a most
dangerous frame of mental thought
We are abandoning a creed that pre
served our own rights and respected
the rights of others. The final aban
donment of this creed means more o
calamity to us than even to those
weaker than us whom we may con

is due to the fact that we are destroy

7"rnK Missouri river commission in
its annual report complains that
lack of funds has hampered the work
of making the river navigable. Con

been perfectly willing to continue
their lamentations if the pay-roll had

T irm iiatevek may be the desires o

Jl fair will be held at Lincoln for
all time to come. The state board of
public lands and buildings has pur
chased the old fair grounds as a per
manent site for the state fair, paying
17,000 therefor. The state will spend
$18,000 more on improvements. As
long as Nebraska is to have a state
fair no doubt the purchase of a per
manent site is a good thing, and Lin
coln is as good a location for the fair
as any place. Everything points to a
successful fair this year.
-TThe Bee says: Many of the leading
populist papers in Nebraska are
outspoken in the opinion that fusion
has outlived its usefulness. As fusion
never accomplished any other Dur-
pose than to furnish offices to a few
politicians, this must be taken as a
confession that fusion cannot win
again. The Nebraska voter has cer
tainly learned that the reform ball Is
not under the fusion shell, and will re'
fuse to bite on the game again.

The ink is evidently cheap, and it
prints gray instead of black. The

That was a good yield of wheat for

last Tuesday night with expectations
of having a -downpour of rain, but
only a few drops reached here. East
of town there was a heavy rain for a
short time, but it was confined to a
small territory and not sufficient to do
a great amount of good to the crops.
nenry F. Taylor informs us that
some people have a wrong understand

that has been on for some time, a few
having the idea that he is fighting
against the opening of any road from
the bottoms Into town. He says the
whole trouble is in regard to the place
for opening the road, and not as to
whether there shall le any road es
tablished. The editor of this paper has had
many voluntary offers of support for
the republican nomination for county
clerk, and until recently we had some
serious intention of being nominated
and elected, but we have concluded
that we cannot afford to abandon the
work of running a good newspaper in
one of the liost towns in the Ijest
county in Nebraska, to devote time
and expense to secure a jiomination

the McBrides, who will probably want
to move back about January 1, but we
are glad to hear that Albert's mother

Grandpa West returned from Ge
neva, Neb., Sunday evening. He re
ports the drouth a little worse there
than here, and says if no rain falls
this weel- farmers will put their self
binders in the fields and cut and bind
their corn tor feed. He says they are
not so badly off as they might be if
they were depending on a corn crop,
as they had a great amount of winter
wheat in, which made a very heavy
crop, running from twenty to forty
bushels per acre.

Mrs. J. Bischoff, of Alvo, called on

Dan Fcntlman and Wm. Lefler were
at Omaha one day last week with a
