Sheriffs Dislike Ruling.
The sherills in the state are object
ing seriously to the ruling of the attor
ney general that receipts must accom
pany vouchers filed for railroad fare.
One sheriff wrote in that he would
take what he could get, as he was at
the mercy of the auditor. He said in
his letter he had agreed to serve sum
mons for the railroad company in re
turn for transporation and therefore,
he thought, he earned all the transpor
tation he received. Last year he said
he had served summons, w hich, if paid
for, wudld have netted him s7 of the
railroads' money. He made no record
of the fees because lie had the annual.
His office, he said, only paid about
ilOOayear. When it was discovered
that the sheriffs in various parts of the
state had such a contract with the
various railroads the governor asked
j for a ruling on the question and the
attorney general ruled the receipts
must be tiled with the voucher. The
governor found out about the agree
ment when one .sheriff sent in a voucher
to which was attached his contract
with a railroad company.

Preachment on the Animal and His Mechan
The use of the automobile does not
seem to have discouraged horse rais
ing in the least, but rather the horse
is In greater demand today than ever,
and they are commanding higher
prices. Official reports show that the
horse is still paramount. In 1!I05 there
were 17,aV,";o2 horses in the United
States, against 14,121:5,837 in im. The
export price averaged $:iOS.('J last year,
acainst 8174.50 In lsuii. The horse is
flesh, blood and intelligence, and peo
ple of nntural and practical predilec
tions can have an affection for him.
He has the graces of Instinct, and if
he gets proper attention Is a thing of
beautv and satisfaction. The spread
of the automobile is amazing, but it is
still to a great degree a fad and a toy.
It is a product ot prosperous times
when men are making money and
have the means of treating themselves
to novelties. Its best use is for heavy
delivery transporation in cities, but it
has nothing to commend It over the
horse for family driving or pleasure
riding. It goes faster than the patient
four-footed beast, but the horse is as
rapid as is necessary. It goes at as
great a pace as ought to be permitted
in the streets of a city, and is less
tempestuous than the bellowing and
snorting motor. Anybody with human
instincts can acouirea positive affec
tion for a faithful horse, but who
could love a greasy automobile, with
its absurd noises, gaseous wheezing
and noxious ordors? The horse,
the noblest of all beasts If indeed, it
Is not a shame to call It a beast-is a
creature of bountiful and beautiful
nature, while the horseless wagon is a
senseless, ponderous machine that is
not bridlewise. and has to be guided at
every motion by a man in a spectacular
overcoat and wearing, on his eyes
horrid goggles. The automobile has
not advanced save in devilment. It Is
still largely a vehicle for the transpor
tation of grotesque exhibitions.
Loyalty to the horse is a sign of the
best human temperament. He is one
of the pioneers of civilization, as well
as one of its greatest finishers.
Yright Returns to His Home in Valley as
ThoughNothing Had Happened.
The Nebraska City papers of yester
day contained accounts of the elope
ment escapade of William "Wright, of
Valley, and Mrs. J. J. McCoy, of Fair
bury. It seems now that the whole
story has been declared a fake so far
as the same concerns Mrs. McCoy; the
following special from v alley to the
World-Herald may be read with in
"The one topic of conversation here
Sunday and Monday was the story of
the sensational search of Mrs. William
Wright for her husband and the state
ment made by her attorney to the
World-Herald saying that Mrs. Wright
believed Mrs. J. J. McCoy was with
her husband. While there had been
some talk among the townsfolk for
sometime concerning Wright it was
not believed that there was anything
of a serious nature underneath these
"Wright came home Sunday from
Omaha, where he had been since Sat
urday. He went to his home only to
find that he was locked out and that
the house was empty. He finally ef
fected an entrance, but it seems as if
he had remained in the house almost
since his arrival.
"Denutv Sheriff Brown, from Om
aha, reached here today and served
Wright with a restraining order which
prevents him from disposing of his
property pending an application for
divorce which was instituted in dis
trict court today by his wife.
"The Wrights and McCoys have
been well acquainted for some time,
but the wives have had frequent dis
agreements, over just what outsiders
have failed to learn.
"Mrs. McCoy was expected to return
to Valley today, but she did not put
in an appearance here."
Blackleg in Otoe County.
Blackleg has broken out in this vi
cinity again. William Wrenn, who
lives on the Van Wykc farm northwest
of the city, lost three cattle from the
disease yesterday. Dr. A. G. Ilernard
was hastily summoned from this city
and vaccinated all of the cattle on the
farm likely to be subject to the dis
ease. Blackleg only affects cattle un
der two years old. Veterinary sur
geons are now able to prevent the
spread of the disease by vaccinaton
but as yet have discovered no cure for
animals once affected. Blackleg has
appeared on two or three farms In this

Was She a Grafter?
A smooth-tongued, well-dressed and
handsome lady arrived in town this
morning, and hardly had she landed
on the Burlington depot platform be
fore she produced her little book and
began to solicit aid for a branch hospi
tal to be locoated at Aurora, rveo., so
shr said. She succeeded admirable
well, and in a few hours she raised not
locc timn fifteen or twenty dollars rak
ed Into her coffers. Now, she may be
all right and honest In her endeavors,
hut, it will be remembered that the
Journal a few weeks ago published a
clipping from an exchange, exposing
this sort of a graft, ana sue was oe
erritmd In that article exactly. Why
hor baste out of town? By the time
she had partaken of dinner at the Per

ing to convey her to Murray. Whether
her oblect is a charitable one or not, It

when approached by a oeauiuui iaay,
