John W. Cutrighl. for elector,
accompanied the Bryan party to
this city Monday. Mr. Cutright,
in connection with Chas. S. Sher
man, established the Daily Jour
nal here over HO years ago, and
this is his llrst visit to Platts
mouth in twenty years. Mr. Cut
right is now connected with that
most excellent paper, the Lincoln

editorial writer, and is making

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEN.
What makes the difference be
tween men? Although the prin
ciples upon which lhi govern
ment is founded declare that all
men are created equal, and this
is being loudly reiterated by the
disciples of a certain ethical cult,
no person of any discernment can
deny the fact that there is a vast
difference between.the majority of
mankind. Stand on a street cor
ner and watch the passing crowd
and the contrast between the
arious members of it will be
great. One man 'slouches by
dragging his feet as though he dii
not have sullicieut energy to raise
them as he walks; his hair is un
kempt, his hat thrown on without
regards to looks; his coal droops
and his trousers are shapeless;
ll'i'i'c is an atmosphere of dejec
Don about him that is depressing,
and neither his attitude nor his
appearance are calculated to com
mand the respect of those who
meet him. Walking just behim

Yes, automobile accidents will

The indications point to a llm
holiday trade. The crops general
ly have been good and the people
are disposed to spend plenty o
money during the holidays. The
wastefulness that formerly char
acterized the celebration of the
holidays has been curbed lo a
great extent. Hut the giving of
presents is generally observed
and the class of goods purchased
is even better and more sensible
an the days when extravagance
was in vogue, u no proper observ
ance of the holiday spirit is com
mendable. It has become a sol
tied anniversary for the world of
Christendom and nowhere in the
wide world are the people in bet
ter condition financially for the
festivities than in the central por
tion of the United States. Tho
retail merchants have bought
liberally in anticipation of a heavy
holiday trade. Doubtless they
wil not be disappointed.

Plattsmouth is well up-to-dato
with nice show windows, but let's
have more of them. It costs but
deter us from alluding to it. It
isn't particularly painful, but it is
mighty lasting. And it strikes us
as being just about the right
punishment to administer to tho

money will protect him in his

nt before he passes the first one
on the street as doubtless he has
surpassed his neighbor in the
pursuit of success in his chosen
walks of life.
To look at such a man is a
pleasure, for his whole appear-
ince commands respect. His ap
parel and his demeanor are of one
who respects himself and whom
the world honors. Perhaps these
men were neighbors wnoii chil
dren and had an equal chance for
education and business advance
ment, but one has oulstipped the
other and the distance is so great
between them that they do not
even know each other as they pass
in the street. What, has made

Possibly I he other man may havi
met with similar mishaps, but he
had more stamina and recupei
alive power. He simply refused to
be downed by misfortune, regard
less of w hat they were.
The tlrsl man seized upon any
excuse for what was really his own
negligence. Not that he was re
sponsible for the loss of relatives
by death, though it may have been
on account of his own careless
ness; but he certainly might have
retained the regard of friends by
paying proper attention to them
Doubtless he was self-conscious
and cultivated a hypersensitive
feeling that made him ever on the
lookout for slights and quick to
resent what may not Jiave been
intentional. He nursed his
grouches until he became incapa
ble of doing anything and could
not. pay attention to business. No
man can keep friends or retain his
business, whether he be an em
ployee or manager, who does not
have some regard for others; he
can neither keep a position nor
retain the patronage of custom
ers if he neglects them.
(I will not do to act on the idea
that the world owes one a living
and that the debt is to be collect
ed regardless of a "quid pro quo;"
for as a rule a fair return is ex
acted for all that we get from the
world. If the laborer is worthy of
his hire he should see that he
earns his pav. in endeavor 10

paymaster is to antagonize. On
the other hand, a good business
man demonstrates his self-re
spect in his trim appearance, and
all whom he may meet recognizes
the fact, at a glance. Having n
good opinion of himself ho im
presses the fact upon others, for
the world is quite apt to take ont

figures are manifestly too high.

Will Maupin's Weekly, which
has done such valiant work for
the democratic state ticket, has
ceased publication, and Mr. Mau
pin will, about the llrst of De
cember, begin the publication of
a monthly magazine, entitled
"Midwest." It will be devoted
principally to Nebraska and her
resources. Will Maupin has al
ready achieved great fame in the
publication of his weekly, which
has been .greatly devoted to the
special interests of Nebraska. The
new publication will give Mr.
Maupin a great opportunity to
"spread himself" and we are wil

worthy of the support of every
