about the only time governors or

in part to the powerful assistance
of the railroads ever become really

nothing further to fear or hope from

Tin: burglar is a pleasant chap
who wants more than he deems his
right, and it is strange indeed that
in a democratic country, where ev

should be a strong antipathy and j
concerted opposition to the mere
house-breaker or porch-climber.
Incidentally, the difference lietween
an ordinary burglar or highwayman
and the insurance official is that the
former simply asks your money or
your life, while the latter wants
both: a contrast decidedly in favor
of the burglar. And the burglar
doesn't come at you with a lot of
banal literature, either.

Will it Always be Thus?
The. Tecumseh Chieftian tells of a
circumstance which serves as an illus
tration of how eager the catalogue
houses are to return favor for favor,
when asked to donate a few dollars to
assist in building churches, and chari
table institutions in general in the
west where they "gull" the farmers
on the mail order scheme:
"In the town of Adams they are
building a new church and. as is strict
ly proper, the building committee is
solicilly financial help from the citi
zens in general. One member of the
solicit ing committee is a great friend
of the catalogue hopse. and every time
he wants a bill of goods be forthwith
sends t be order, with the amount of
cash, to Montgomery Ward vS: Co.,J
Chicago. This committeeman called
upon a certain Adams merchant and
solicited cash for the new church.
The merchant put hio name down for
$-.0u without a word, and then in
formed the committeeman that, poor
as he was, he would pay dollar for dol
lar with Montgomery Ward .S: Co., for
the proposed building. The commit
teeman wrote tiie catalogue house a
letter explaining that the concern had
many customer in and about Adams
and asked for help in the church work.
Was it forthcoming? Well, hardly.
Montgomery Ward & Co., wrote back
a polite letter, but absolutely refused
to subscribe a cent for the cause in
question. If there is no moral in this
item, friends, keep right on sending to
the catalogue houses for your little
bills of goods."

Tin-: Iowa supreme court has de
cided that a man cannot vote where
lie eats, but must do so in the ward
or precinct where he sleeps. The
court held that a voter cannot say
for himself where he desires to
vote, but must cast his ballot in the
ward where he boards. As the Ne

clear up many disputed points in

vor reminds us that there were on
ly seventy-five postofhees iu 179,
the year in which Benjamin Frank
lin died, the two hundredth anni
versary of whose death will be cel
ebrated next month, whereas there
are now more than 78,000. The
postal service has indeed expanded
since Franklin's death, but it never
had a greater man at the head of it.
Bkvekiik;k in the Senate and
Hamilton in the House have intro
duced their omnibus statehood
bill. Omnibuses iu the streets
went out of fashion a long time
ago, and it may be that this one
will not be well patronized in the
two houses. There are many mem
bers who prefer to consider the
merits of the territories separ-atelv.
Now lookout! Judge Baxter has
gotten his "rile" up and he de
clares that "Nebraska is going to
be the storm center of land fraud
investigations." Railroads will do

portunity and raise the price

Tin: way the- divorce business is
handled in many of our courts, it is
easier to get single than it is to get
married. It is disgusting to read
Omaha dailies and see the number
of divorces granted. It is not only
the case in the large cities, but
in the rural districts there is not a
term of court wherein the docket
fails to show several divorce suits.
Kvidently some people live for a
probational period, and then con
clude to blackslide, in order to try
some other partners. They agree
upon the details, and simply employ
a lawyer and go into court and the
thing is done so quietly that the
news often slips the newspapers' no
tice. If it were not so easy to get
a divorce, more consideration would
be given the question of marriage.
Herein is where the divorce laws
of Nebraska need modification to a

Thk life insurance investigations
which have been going ou iu New
York have proceeded far enough to
convince the public that the big
guns; the much talked about cap
tains of industry; the noted politi
cians, especially the republican U.
S. senators and congressmen are
about as dirty aud trickcy as they
were painted. These noted men
have profitted in the great bunco.
All the I'nited Senators implicated
should be forced to resign; the same
with congressmen, judges and other
officers. The Depews, Platts. Cor
telyou, Morton, and others even
higher should Ix; made to get out.
They are a disgrace to the country
and to the offices they occupy. The
man who uses trust funds because
he is hungry might be excused, but
there can be no justifying the using
of trust funds as they have been
used by these insurance companies.
The schools will close on t riday,
December and the kids will enjoy
two weeks vacation.
The merchant that advertises is the
one that will, and ought to get the
bi? bulk of the holiday trade.
Already arrangements are being
made for Christmas entertainments,
which will begin Saturday night next.
All the boys and girls who are at
tending school away from home will
begin to arrive next Thursday night,
to spend the holidays.
"While in your rounds making your
purchases for Christmas presents, bear
in mind the poor children of our city
whose parents are unable to provide
such for them.
Send your absent friend a year's sub
scription to the Journal. If lie or she
has ever lived in Plattsmouth they
will appreciate such about as muc h as
anything you could send them.
The tine weather is holding out re
markably well and while the farmers
wish it may continue for some time
yet. the average small boy is wishing
for a good big snow, that they may en
joy the holidays in the proper way.
Turkeys, geese and ducks don't seem
to have declined in price so that you
could notice it, and the man who can
afford to buy a big turkey for his
Christmas dinner is lucky indeed.
Christmas comes but once a year,
and as it is the season for good cheer,
let us all do something to cheer the
poor children of our city. There are
many deserving little ones in Platts
mouth who will not be able to tell
Christmas from any other day unless
it be through the charitably inclined
people of our city. Remember the lit
tle ones as they should be remembered
on Christmas day.
With the approach of merry Christ
mas time, and the feeling of good will,
and good cheer, the people who receive
their mail upon the rural routes should
not overlook the rural carriers as
among their friends, and those to
whom they are indebted. A roll of
butter, a nice fowl, some product of
the farm, will be eratefully received ty
the carrier, and will show that you ap
preciate the fact that they are of the
very few government officials who are
underpaid, and who have a hard task.
Remember the rural carriers, friends.
Play Santa Claus with him, and en
courage him in his work.

Give Your Stomach Rest.
Nothing will cure indigestion that
doesn't digest the food, itself, and
give the stomach rest. You can't ex
pect that a weak stomach will regain
its strength and get well when it is
compelled to do the full work that a
sound stomach should do. You would
not expect a sick horse to get well
when it is compelled to do a full day's
work every day of the week. Kodol
Dyspepsia Cure is a perfect diestant
and digests the food regardless of the
condition of your stomach. Relieves
