Chloroform yer dismal talker;

Drop yer hammer do some rootin'
Grab a horn, you cuss, and split
Every echo with yer toot in'
Jump the roost

returns to Nebraska, explaining his vote against cheaper
sugar. J hat vote was against the consumers of the great
agricultural state ot Isobraslca. Aklnch wants dearer sugar
and that seems to be the only excuse for I'urkett's action in
the matter. ??TS3ff!2

The railroads have evidently gone into a combine and
fixed the rates to Seattle this summer, $50 for the round trip,
which means $75 before the journey is completed. This is
considerable money for people in moderate circumstances to
spend with the railroads for one trip and it is not likely the
travel to that country will be very heavy unless the roads
give a more reasonable rate.
When the president signs the bill which will increase the
cost of living he will be only doing what the big manufactures
want him to do; he is only performing the ceremony for which
the protected interests wished him to be elected chief execu
tive; he is only acknowledging the debt of gratitude to the
party of protection. Democracy will only ask that he siirn
it and permitted to sin it quickly. There is no hope for revis
ion downward.
There seems to be little doubt now that our republican

erning a decrease in tariff rates. There are a few noble

to those "who fought that this nation might live." They
fought a good fight, and results of that victory will continue to
bless the human race so long as that race shall endure. Now
they are old. Most of them are dead; a few remain. They
are bent and broken by age and by hardship. Their hair is
gray, their eyes are dim, their steps faltering. It is for us
"to remember the brave men, living and dead" who fought
that this nation might live. And in the tenderness of the
years that have flown let us remember, too, those others, who
fought but suffered defat.
The "Western- producers and consumers are to get but very
little relief from the revision of the tariff upward. The re
publican party promised a revision but not the kind of revision
that the republican congress are giving. The west is paying
the bills while the east is living in luxury off of what they
steal from the west in the way of a protective tariff on all
articles of consumption. You made your bed last fall now lay
upon it and take your ease.

James J. Hill, who is one of the createst railroad men this
country has ever known, makes the prediction that the United
States is facing a serious bread problem, and unless there
is marked improvements there will be trouble in the next twenty
or more years. He says there must be an increased produc
tion of wheat. W ltlnn half a century the domestic needs will
demand V000,000,000 bushels of wheat, while the annual pro
duction is now only about half that amount.
Pure Food.
Two men have been sentenced to sixty daws' imprison
ment in New York city, one of them for selling bad eggs and
the other for using them in making pastry to sell to the
public. It is the hrst time a prison sentence lias been in
flicted for that offense, nnd it comes only after repeated im
position of tines has failed to remedy the evil.
I ure food is a good deal practice, as well as a good deal
theory. Nonzoate of soda may or not be a poison; nnd many
other alleged medicinal or food substances may or may not be
such. Hut if there is one point on which we could arrive at
unanimous agreement, regardless of politics or race or cus
tom, it is the subject of bad eggs, there is not even, ns far
as we have observed, n religion that requires its devotees to
eat bad eggs. It is one point on which theory is clear ami un
animous. Comes then the practice. There are plenty of men in
this wicked world who will sell bad eggs for good ones if they
get n chance. The way to stop it is to make it nn inducement
to them to stop it. Sixty days ought to be fairly convincing,
considering that the profits can't be great. World-Herald.
The above is surely n warning to those who are not c:ir -ful
in dealing with the pure food law of Nebraska. .M',r - nn
example is made n few who still insist on selling any old thing
to the unsuspecting public, like the above refers to. they will
perhaps get their eyes open to the fact that the wire fond
law means just what it says. "A word to the wise" i m ire
times in order.
