It Is a strange fact that great In
ventors usually did not enjoy a long
life. Death often surprised them
shortly after their work was crowned
with success. It seems as if these men
had engaged all their vitality and en
ergy into their Idea, forgetting that
the human organism needs attention
like any other machinery. They sacri
ficed health and life to their invention.
Others again devote all energy to their
business or occupation and never mind

County to Pay the Costs
Representative Barnes has intro
duced into the house of representatives
a bill relating to fees to he charged by
the county clerk's office. One of the
main features of the bill is that it pro
vides that pension vouchers shall be
acknowledged free of charge by the
county clerk. This service has always
been done free in practically every
county in the state, but in order to
avoid making a charge it has been ne
cessary to ignore the law, which pro
vides a fee of 2T cents. The bill is in
tended to make the law conform to
The bill also provides that the coun
ty, and not the filer, shall pay the fee
of 2o cents for liling certilicates of as
signment under the scavenger tax and
claims against the county. The pres
ent law provides that the person who
riles these documents shall pay the
fee," but as it relates to county busi
ness the fee is usually ignored. In
counties outside of Douglas the bill
will enable county clerks to make
enough fees to cover their salaries.
