PETER HAD TAKEN ON TOO
MUCH CHRISTMAS CHEER
Peter Evers, who lias been living
apart from his family for some
months, filled up with booze and went
to the borne of his wife's parents, Mr.
Ohlenhausen, Monday night and pro
ceeded to make a disturbance with a
party of friends of the family assem
bled. Peter made threats as to what
he would do In a few minutes, and
Rave the family to understand that
blood would flow freely when he got
under way. Mr. Ohlenhausen met his
assault with a stove poker, which
cooled Peter's thirst for gore. The
police were called and the disturber
taken to Jail. Yesterday a complaint
was filed by the county attorney
charging Evers with making threats
against the life of his wife and mem
bers of his family during the past two
or three months, and the defendant
vnt taken before Judge Archer yes
terday and pleaded guilty t the
charge. The judge bound him over
to appear at the next term of the dis

Why Not a "Bargain Day?"
Kearney merchants have Inaugu

Thcso they have once a month, and
the merchants all get together and
give reduced prices on all articles
they desire to eloso out. The Journal
has suggested at several different
times that our business men adopt
such a move, but they do not seem to
act In that direction. It would bring
people from every section of tho
county If Bueh a system was organ

AMONG HOLD-UP VICTIMS
Mrs. Alf Edgerton and little daugh

of her father, I). F. Rabe, who was
reported dangerously 111, were on the
ill fated train wwhlch was held up by
a lone bandit between Leavenworth
and Kunsns City and each passenger
robbed. Mrs. Edgerton was relieved
of her purse and money, the highway
man returning her trunk check and
unused portion of her ticket. The llt
tlo girl's purse, which had been a
present from her teacher and which
was prized very highly, was taken.
When Mrs. Edgerton arrived at
Oppelo she found her father was
already dead and burled. The loss of
the money taken by the robbers falls
quite heavily on Mr. Edgerton, as he
had sacrificed considerable In raising
the money for his wife to make the

Regulur occupation Is necessary to life,
and it Is one of the greatest blesslngH
of our lives. Industry Is helpful to self
command, because body and mind ore
disciplined by It into orderliness nnd
life Is made regular by It, as a body of
trained troops Is more easily controlled
than an undisciplined mob.
It Is one of the best helps for con
tentment, fur It affords n regular vent
for tho activity of life, which would
otherwise tend to wear out life itself.
Idleness soon becomes a burden to
one's life. Laziness Is the worst soli
of vice, because it sacrifices the higher
self to the lower self. It Is the open
gntewny to overty In Its mosf hideous
and degrading forms. Where Indus
try in wanting, poverty nnd wretched
ness lire suro to come.
Industry Is essential to the highest
Influence, and It Is very necessary that
the young should be provided with In
terests in study nnd philanthropic ne
tlvity to give opportunity of Increasing
their Influence. With unceasing Indus
try rend books, for "they pay the larg
est dividends for the outlay of time
nnd remain a permanent possession."
"Life's master word Is Work. With
this magic word In one's heart nil
things ore possible. It is the touch
stone of progress nnd the key to sue
cess." Generally speaking, the life of
nil truly great men has been a life of
Intense nnd incessant labor.
To get on lu life n boy must not be
content with simply doing the task set
for ' I in ho must do more than bis
task. Ho should be at bis work ear
lier t lin n Is required and stay later.
That Is ono way to attract attention.
The writer, when simply nn errand
boy In a bookstore, only six weeks
on bis Job, saw a customer Impatient
nt not being walled upon. He stepped
up to him ns though he were a' sales
man, learned bis wants, and. though
not knowing the locution or price of n
single book, by dint of quickness of
Inquiry nnd search he found them and
sold n bill amounting to $'2). His em
ployer likened to be looldnrr on and
promoted him on the spot. That was
the turning point In his enreer. In
kIx months be became the head of the
entire book department.
A boy In Hie beginning of his ca
reer should do two days' work for
one day's pay. This will then attract
nitentlon, which will quadruple his
pay, nud If continued will probably
make him a partner. "There Is al
ways room nt the top" Is quoted to
all. Yes, but we must nil climb, for,
as some one has wittily said. "The ele
vator Is not running."
Put Industry should be directed to
ward n dellnile object mid purpose. A
boy riding n rocking horse may put
forth more energy than one riding n
wheel, but he does not get anywhere.
