If you are a farmer, did you ever
stop try Inquire what makes your land
aluable? It is not the land Itself, nor
you; mat s certain.
fiupposo your land, with all Its great
natural fertility, and your splendid
methods of cultivation, were located
iu the middle of Texas, with no other
oultlvated ground and no railroads
within hundreds of miles of It, It would
not ho worth much, would It?
The sole reason your land is of more
than nominal value is because a com
munity has grown up around it.
If you acquired your land years ago
when the neighborhood In which you
live was sparsely settled, you have had
the pleasure of watching It grow In
value as thecommunity has grown and
First came the neighboring farms,
then the towns, finally the railroads,
which the towns brought near to your
land, all contributing to yours and the
It must be clear to you, in the light
of history, that your interests can con
tinue to grow and prosper only if the
entire community in which you live
shall continue to grow and prosper.
If your community goes backward,
you go backward; if it's growtli and
prosperity are retarded, the growth
and prosperity of your Individual in
tcrests are retarded.
How, then, can you expect to ad
vance your interests by taking a pound
ot weight from the prosperity of your
community forthesake of a temporary
personal gain In the measure of pen
The greatest .menace to this country
Is admitted to be the centralization of
wealth, which carries with it, under
our present economic system, the, ten-J
dency to build to tremendous propor-
tlonsafew chosen communities, at the
expense of the many less favored ones.
Yet, let us tell you what you of the
smaller communities have done in a
single year to hasten forward this ten
dency', Instead of resisting it as might
bave been expected of you.
; In the year 1D0.V out of the ' money
earned In your communities, and be
longing to the commerce and industry
of your communities, you- contributed
lo two mall order bouses alone, locat
ed in, the city of Chicago, the stu pen-
dous sum Of $0,0)0.000. r ' '
..Think Of this for a moment and
than consider that It is only tho begin
ning that dozens of other concerns of
tho same kind gleaned from the farms
and tliC small Communities of the land

can hd guessed at.' ,: '''

Contrast this tremendous accumula
tion of your money In a few hands, for
tie henelit of couccrus lu which you
have no Interest, located in communi
ties from whose prosperity you derive
only remote benefits, with the com
mercial conditions In your own com
munity. The two Institutions w hich absorbed
eighty millions of your money In one
year, although tho largest of their
kind In the world, still are reaching
their hands for more. Ono already
has expended not less than 11,000,000
for an immense new building, and the
other has bought tho sight for an ad

In speaking of the receut meeting
of tho republican congressional com
mittee iu that city, the Lincoln Star
says: "Congressman Toward urged
the commit tee not to evade the back
salary charge. He declared his posi
tion was sanctioned by precedent and
approved by republicans. Ho indicat
ed that lie would take a similar posi
tion should the question arise again."
The honest voters of tlie First district
do not propose that the salary grab of
$l,W)o by Congressman Pollard si tall
be evaded, so well does the ''Kasy
Money" congressman know this fact.

The Mai Journals account of the
republican convent ion gives the follow
ing In reference to the Cass county
delegates and how they acted whan
their favorite was declare 1 (he nomi
nee for governor:
Tho Cass county delegates could not
control I heir feeling as the balloting
for governor proceeded the second
time. Shout alter shout Idled the
room its dlil'erent counties threw their
strength toward Sheldon. There was
silence, however, when C. F. Steele,
himself a candidate for governor, arose
and addressed the chair. "I move."
said Mr. Steele, "that the rules he sus
pended and that Mr. Sheldon be
chosen by acclamath n." tlie cheering
was loud and long for It was apparent
that Steel's forces would go to Sheldon
and t hat meant Sheldon's nominal ion
on that ballot. Tito chair declined to
entertain Mr. Steele's motion, and the
balloting proceeded, but Sheldon'ssup
porters saw the finish of the light.
"They can't beat us now, George,"
more than one of Mr. Sheldon's own
delegation shouted In hisear. Anxious
men kept count of the votes as an
nounced, and long before the voting
had Mulshed tho necessary I'J'.i had
been counted and announced to Mr.
Sheldon, "It's the lirst time old Cass
ever had anything," enthusiactlcally
called out rlandoTell't. "Get lu line
boys," someone shouted, and before
the vote had been announced the Cass
delegation, headed by their banner,
marched around the hall single file,
amid tlie cheering of the entire con
vention. During all the show of en
thusiasin by his friends, Mr. Sheldon
stood with face tense, eagerly listen
ing to every county's announcement.
After the required number had been
cast, he was besieged with men eager
to congratulate him on his victory,
lie appeared to be the Idol of the con
vent ion. While he was mounting the
platform to thank the convention,
after the vote had been announced,
the people yelled with delight over
his nomination. "He's the future
governor of this state," yelled one
man Into his neighbor's car.
" Yes, he's the biggest man Nebraska
has today," yelled back the neighbor.

day, in speaking more of the ball game
in that city last Saturday, says: "The
game, as reported In Saturday's Tri
bune, resulted In a 0 to 1 victory for
the Argos over the heavy team from
Plattsmouth. The contest was really
a better, closer game than the score
would indicate. Inopportune errors
accounted for most of the runs of the
day. Plattsmouth has a strong bat

tlie exception of shortstop, brought a
fast bunch of players to the city."
