We heard a gentleman remark the
other day that when hard times struck
the average citizen the first thing he
did was to stop his paper; the next to
take hischildren from the schools, and
the next to quit paying the preacher,
and thus imagine be was practicing
economy; and the gentleman talks the
truth. Great economy, isn't it ? Kill
off the preacher and let your children
grow up moral savages; kill off the
teacher and raise your offsprings to
be hewers of wood and drawers of
; water for the children of those who
havemore sense-kill off your newspaper
and see your town go down, business
grow stagnant, and those children
whom yon have decreed to be Intellec
tual and moral dwarfs, loaf around
for want or employment. This is
wonderful economy. Current-Voice.
Governor llolcomb has approved
thirty bills. Including fiire which ap
propriate a total of $448,000. The sum
of $250,000 being for relief, $73,000 for
completion of the state university
library and $125,000 for legislative ex-
. penses. A large part of the latter wil
probably not be required and It wil
therefore revert to the .treasury. In
addition to an irrigation act, the best
sugar bounty measure, and other bills
that have become Jaws, the governor
has signed an eyen dozen proposed
constitutional amendments, and elec

wheat and rye than there is now, and
that everything Is looking first-class

it will not be because it didn't get a

Tom I'armela Is Injured.
Cashier Tom Parmele of the Bank of
Commerce goes about town by the aid
of a pair of crutches, caused by a fall
received white alighting from a freight
train Wednesday night. He had been
at I'lattsmouth and came home on the
midnight freight, and in jumping off
the caboose while the train was in mo
tion he fell into a switch injuring his
left knee cap and bruising him up
pretty badly. Ills many friends hope
for him a speedy recovery and tiiat no
serious injury will terminate from the
accident. Louisville Courier Journal.
Beginning with April first and con
tinulng for a month Uncle Sam wants
every bit of mall that comes to or
from the Plattsmouth postoflice
weighed, and so it is with evt ry post
oflice on a line of railroad in the
United States, as upon the weight of
the mail thus carried are the estimates
made up upon which the railways are
paid during the next four years. The
month of April is chosen because it Is
supposed to be the best average month
in the year. The weight of a letter
does not amount to much, but when it
is taken into account that there are
many tons of this matter sent or re
ceived every year at or from the local
postotlice, each letter cuts something
of a figure.
A remarkable slice of luck occurred
to a Liverpool man a few years ago
He was walking along a street of the
great shipping headquarters when lie
picked up a piece of paper which
proved to be a bank note for XI, 000.
He took it to a police station, and it
was reported to the bank, but al
though every effort was made it was
never found possible to trace it to its
owner, and after a considerable lapse
of time the note was handed back to
its lucky finder.

tothe nature ot the disease and learut d
that I bad a somewhat aggravated case

such slight relief I cast about for a per

from pain followed, and soon a com
