A man usually charges his poor judg ment to bad luck. Ignorance ceases to be bliss when you begin to realize it. Many a man has landed in jail by taking things easy. Money talks and it usually gets the best of an argument. I 'roof of the political pudding lies in the size of the plums. Running expenses go right on when business is at a standstill. If you are ashamed of your calling hire a boy to call for you. What's the matter with the steeple climber as a high churchman? Nothing seems to worry a burglar more than a small dog with a big bark. The man who is on pleasure bent is apt to tind himself broke in due time. The world may owe a man a living, but the world doesn't always pay its debts. A great deal of sympathy is wasted f n homely people, for they are really the happiest. There isn't much hope for those who look upon a church collection as a hold-up game.

After this vexation it was remembered thatClel's mother had a key to their house, and acting on the new inspiration, Clel made a sprint during the wee small hours of yesterday morning, aroused the mother to obtain the key, and re turned in record breaking time. Of course Clel has been very reticent in regard to the incident, but some of his friends got next to the occurrence.and now the joke js on Clel instead of "Rosey."

The following is sent to the Journal from a former Cass county boy, who, aner reading me account ot the run away boys in this paper, is very posi tive that he saw the young fellows on the train on which he is running. Here is further evidence that the run aways are alive: as chief clerk last week was the nrst intimation which he gave of making his own appointments regardless of pressure which is brought to bear upon him. Whatever Maggi's backing was it was not known and the first intima tion that he was even a candidate was given the morning that the governor made the announcement of his ap pointment. Maggi declares that he himself didn't even have an idea of serving as the governor s chief clerk until less than twelve hours before the appointment was made. It is also true that the state com mittee was sorely disappointed at the appointment.

It is a grander thing to he nobly re membered than to bo nobly horn. Thedoor between usand heaven can not be open while that between usand our fellowmen is shut. There isa divinity in the meatiest man, a philanthropist in the stingiest miser, a hero in the biggest coward, which an emergency great enough will call out. The chances are that what you call "hard luck," or "fate" that Is against you, is some weakness, some visions habit, which Is counteracting all your efforts and keeping you down. Every man stamps his own value upon the coin of his character in his own mind and he cannot expect to pass for more, and should not be disapoint- ed if people do not take it for more than its face value. State Journal Admits Guilt. Thespecial correspondent of the Om aha Ilee says: "Considerable time has been taken up during the past week In a discussion in the house and senate regarding the State Journal and other members of the printing trust, which is charged with having bilked the state out of several thousand dollars annu ally for years. The fact that the Slate Journal admitted it had not kept its contracts with the state during the last thirty years it has been printing bills, has stirred up many of the mem bers, and this loud shouting fake re form organ maybe compelled to toe the mark in the future, while the le gal department has been ordered logo after it to compel it to disgorge the great amounts due the state under t he penalty clause of its past contracts." :r.nkes ! s ..- silo: Wl iorc fe the ! p.'.ake frr hi ir.. rr.on wo;:l 1 h i; i even mak 'i:e i ao otl.r rs trev, i f a cral':loi:s m i i t 1 ! e v e r i w a ! : t ) : : r M .! believe that. ri;e woman c trat another with silent contempt Sec md thoughts are said to be the I r.est. vpt the longer a man aims the n:ore likely he is to miss the target. About all the consulation some men get out of losing their money is the relief that they are dead game sports A young man who makes "mashing" a profession, is not wanted in any com munity, and is detested by all sensible girls. The greatest blessing that ever comes to a human being is the determina tion to realize that for which the heart longs. With her first proposal a girl Is con vinced that she will need a large blank book in which to keep the record of her offers. "When a young man with a salary of $9 a week marries a girl who is unable to cook he hands himself an extra large lemon. Some men seem to think they are doing a great deal toward righting the world's wrongs by fu sing with their neighbors. At the marriage altar he agrees to endow her with all her worldly goods and she promises to love, honor and cbpy but do they make good? The eternal fitness of things gets an awful jolt when one encounters a wo man clerk in a hardware store or a man clerk in a millinery shop. The young man who makes a prac tice of posing on the Riley hotel cor ner every evening that the weather will permit, and boldly peering into every lady's face that passes, is spotted by every parent in town, some of whom will bring him up standing sometime when he is in the least look ing, for it. Such fellows are not want ed in any community. I In Honor of Mrs. Marsland.

I Read With ringers Crossed. A carrier from Port Byron. N. Y has had a set of rules published for his patrons which are evidently meant to I be read "over the left." Here are some of them: "1. Do not stamp letters, especial ly in winter, as the carrier has taken off his mittens and will spend some time anyway in looking for pennies "2. Avoid placing the right change in the box, as the carrier always car ries a national bank in his vest pocket "3. If you desire a 2-cent stamp, a postal card, or three stamped envel opes, do not write your needs on a slip of paper and thus annoy the carrier, Just drop a half dollar in the box; the carrier is a mind reader and will know what you want. "4. We most earnestly advise buy ing postals one at a time, requesting the carrier to wait while you write it Is so pleasant when the thermome ter is about zero. It is also restful to the horse. 5. Please attach your mail box to a tree or the fence, as these serve to guide the carrier in storms and deep snow. "6. Report the carrier every you are not otherwise occupied will make him alert and happy. 7. In telephoning to a carrier to bring out a couple of plow points and a twenty-rive pound sack of flour, Just drop a couple of apples in the box not a dime, mind as apples help to make a horse's hair look slick and shiny. Never under any circumstances place a spare rib in the box. as the only re cord of a rural carrier eating meat was made five years ago, when a farmer who had slaughtered twenty fine pigs gave a carrier a liver for his Thanks giving dinner." Carrier's Journal. exact amount. And it would be cheaper than it is now is, too. One of the great secrets of the low price that mail-order houses are able to make is the selling for cash plan. Any farmer who is honest can bor row money at the bank. He could take that money and do better with it than he could with his credit at the store where he buys what he needs. Dealers now have what they call their low est cash price, but it could be much lower if all the goods they sell could be turned into cash the day the sale is made. What the cash buyer has to tut iij Liu, een wnen ne nuys a tne time . It Finest candies ever seen in Platts mouth. Lowney's or Proctor & White's at Gerirjg & Co.'s iUt-.M, u.ian price." is a certain pe cent that goes to cover what hass been lost in bad accounts or notes long over due, that, perhaps, has required a law suit to collect. All these are now fixed charges, made by the credit system of carrying on business, and every cus tomer of the store has to payhisshare tecause the expense is tacked onto the goods sold. Perhaps some may say that putting the credit giving privilege up to tbe banks would give them too much of a hold on the people; that they would soon be charging a too high rate of in terest. The usual rate charged on all notes taken by machinery dealers and other merchants bears 8 per cent inter est. This is no higher than the banks now charge on good notes, and if a man cannot furnish an 8 per cent risk, the chances are he will furnish no greater profit to the man or institution from which he gets money than would be the good borrower who pays the lower rate. We believe this system of doing away with credit along all lines of trade, making everything cash, would greatly cheapen the price of the goods we buy, and would, in a trreat meas ure, compela part of the scalawags to be honest. " A Painful Accident. A very painful accident happened to Mr. Claude Everett, Jiving four miles southeast of Union, last Satur day. He was leaving tbe wood yard with an arm load of fuel for tbe house, when in some manner he stepped on a round piece of wood, which threw the ax that was lying on the ground sharp edge upward and it struck his left arm near the elbow, cutting a gash which took several stitches to close. The Journal regrets to learn of this accident to one of its old friends, and uupes uy careiui treatment he can soon make use of that member. Firth. I give and bequeath to Hat- tie A.

In Saturday's issue of the Journal appeared an article stating that the Teterinary bill, as originally prepared. had been killed in the house of repre sentatives. Such is not the case, and the report was erroneous. The fact is the. original bill, making any veter inarian who had practiced the profes sion for ten years, eligible toall the rights and title granted to veterinary surgeons, has not been acted uoon hv either branch of the legislature. There was an amendment to the orig inal bill, substituting five instead or ten years, which was acted upon, and this was killed in the house. The amendment was ostensibly gotten up for the purpose of defeating the orig inal measure. "They like the taste as well as maple sugar" is what one mother wrote of Kennedy's Laxative Cough Syrup.
