incurred in seeurin the office
nought and then the possibility
of the other fellow getting it,
inakes olliee-seeking a very un
attractive proposition to say the
Ieyj;io the.? man who has any
business to look after.
Congress will not enact any ru
ral credit laws this session and
in consequence there has been
started a movement toward sup
plying credit to the agricultural
interests under the laws as they
are. A company has be,en organ
ized under the laws of Maryland,
called the "American Rural Cred
it Association," and an effort is
being- made to have its general
oJlices located in Omaha.
The plan follows very closely
those of Europe. It is proposed
to make long time loans at live
per cent. The average rate paid
by farmers at the present time,
including renewals and commis
sions, is estimated at 8j per cent.
The profit of such a concern lies
in investing the yearly payment
on loans. 11 a man norrows
1,000 for say twenty-one years,
and pays 8u annually, S0 of
that payment is on the principal
and $50 for interest the first year.
That $30 is reinvested year after
year and the income from that is
the profits of the company. The
interest grows less year by year
until the last year the borrower
has only .40, cents to pay, the re
mainder of the $8o being applied
on principal. ' ' ' ' f
That is what is called "amor
tization." It is in that principle
that lies the possibility of live per
cent money for the American far
mer and al the same time the ac
cumulation of an immense
amount of loanable money. France
has been following it for a huu-
Jred years, and France always has
any amount of money to loan, to
foreign stales or corporations.
The other day a government loan
was offered, to pay for the extra
expense caused by the three years'
service in the army instead of two
years as heretofore, and the peo
ple subscribed for it sixty times
over in less than three hours after
the offices were opened.
It will only take a little think
ing for any farmer to fully under
stand the system and it is perfect
ly sound if properly managed.
Democrats do not believe in
steam roller methods, and they
are not standing for them, either

One of the meanest things that
the English suffragettes have
done is to try to burn the old home

The writer, by accident, was
compelled to lay over at Omaha
ast Tuesday morning, in an effort
to make a quick trip to Green
wood, and we were not at all sorry,
for it gave us an excellent chance
to pay a long promised visit to our
ood friend, Henry R. Gering. We
went immediately to his wholesale
drug house and he was as glad to
see us as some long lost, -friend.
Well, .after a few moments talk,

ordered a car. After a few mom
ents slop at a hospital, we started

t would take an abler writer than
ourself to describe the beautiful
cenery and the many objects of
interest. They cover thousands
of acres and are well taken care
of. We had visited Omaha at
various times since 187-', and it
was a surprise to us to note the
unprecedented growth of the
pride city of Nebraska since that
date. It has come to the front
with considerable rapidity, and it
would make any Nebraskan s heart
cap with joy to note the evidences
of prosperity in every section in
passing over the city. There are
no finer parks anywhere, and as
to line residences and drives there
is no city on earth of the same
size that can excel the metropolis
of Nebraska. While Mr. Gering
and the writer have been personal
friends for the past twelve years,
and we feel a deep pride away
down in our heart that we have
always retained this friendship,
as old age comes on apace we
never expect to sec the clay that
will change our views in regard to
lenry It. Gering, the gentleman
with a heart that is ever expand
ing to his true and staunch
riends. We enjoyed our trip
over Omaha, and we feel great
pride in returning our heartfelt
hanks to Mr. Gering for this
pleasure trip. Mr. Gering is pros
pering in Omaha and is proving
liniself quite an acquisition to
he business interests of that city.
There is a lot being said now
adays about the weather, but no
body' seems to be doing much
toward putting on the lid or turn
ing off the draught. It fairly
makes one boil to try to follow
all the hot weather advice that i
given by sweltering human beings
who know how to keep cool, but
who continue to suffocate with
heat just to keep company with
their friends. We have often no
iiced the fellow who is uncom
monly free with hot weather rem
edies is usually the fellow who
hunts the shade and who fumes
and frets like a safety valve try
ing to hold down a threatening
head of steam. And we have also
noticed that the fellow who tries
the hardest to keep cool in hot
weather is the worst disappointed
man in town. The truth of the
matter is, that we gel hot and
uffer from the heat in hot weath
er, whether we will or not, and
whether we go to church or go
fishing on the Sabbath day. But
suffering from the heat is largely
in proportion to our efforts to
keep cool. We noticed during tin
past week that the men who were
working under the broiling sun
were not complaining nan so
much about the heat as were the
loafers who were looking on from
the shady side of the street. Tin
most comfortable man is the man
who is too busy to mind the in
conveniences that he can not con
trol or prevent, and the most un
comfortable man is the fellow
whoso chief occupation is to
complain and who takes it upon
himself to do the suffering for
the world. The fellows who "take
n" most about the disagreeable
hing that comes whether or no,
e it weather or high water, do
the least toward mending matters.
Howling about hot weather does
just about as much good as wish
ing over your right shoulder at
the new moon, and pays about the
same. Hot weather is one among
Ihe thousand and one unpleasant
things that ihe Almighty has in
dicted upon mankind some to
ielp and some to hurt. We are
peaking especially of hot wealh
r right now, because hot weather
s (he thing that hurls the worst
thee days. However disagreeable
some of these afllictiotis may be
they come in spite of us. In win
ter we suffer from the cold, and
all the year 'round we suffer from
dekness, from want, from acci
dents and from death. These be
the common lot of man, and com-
dainiug about them is but aggra
vating our troubles. Every hu
man being has troubles enough of
lis own, and it is a patient soul
indeed who linds pleasure in lis
tening to the troubles of another.
When the weather is hot as blazes
we all get hot together and all
uffer together, and the more we
lowi about the heat the holler we
get. Everybody admires the fat
man who can sweat and swelter
in the heat and still be able to
smile, and nobody likes the skin
ny man who swears when he
sweats and who clabbers his milk
of human kindness every lime the
merrurv nears the top of the lube.
f we were called upon to give a
piece of hot weather advice, we
should edge over toward the
door. and then tell everybody to
mind his own business and slop
nocking on Ihe weather man.
Ihe weather man has been on the
job for a long lime and probably
knows what is best.

The writer paid a brief visit lo
the thriving little village of
(Jreeiiwood on Tuesday afternoon
of last week, and was pleased to
see so much improving going on.
Notwithstanding (jreeiiwood has
had her share of disastrous con
llagratious, they put up better
and more substantial buildings in
the place of those destroyed.
They are a determined class of
citizens, and thrift and prosper
ity can be seen in every direction.
One thing that is badly needed in
(Jreeiiwood is a good hotel. Since
the old hotel was destroyed by lire
they have none now at all. There
is not a town in the stale that
possesses so many beautiful resi
dences and they are kept up in
line shape. One of these days,
and not far distant either, Green
wood will start lo boom, and it
will forge right to the front as
one of the best trading points in
eastern Nebraska. They have tho
country around to support a
good town, and the people pos
sess the inclination to make it so.
