The Home for the Friendless at Lin

case from one court to another, and
it was only a few days ago that the
supreme court affirmed the will.

Tbe farmer in Cass county who
doesn't get something of a crop of
corn this year must be greatly at fault,
and to all appearances 40 to 60 bushels
will be the rule, while less than the
first figure will be the rare exception.
One good corn crop is all that is
needed. It.iH already in sight. Once
let it be garnered and disposed of and
the farmers of Nebraska will forget
that they ever suffered the ravages of
drouth. The corn crop promises to
lift the whole state of Nebraska out of
the slough of depression.
Norfolk News: The man or news

A lawyer in a court room may call a
man a liar, scoundrel, villian or a thief
and no one makes a complaint when
court adjourns. If a newspaper prints
such reflections on a man's character,
there is a libel suit or a dead editor.
This is probably owing to the fact that
people believe what the editor says;
what the lawyer says cuts no ice.
Conductor Terry of the M. I'. says
there is a larger acreage of oats on his

than there has been for five years.
Farmers are all harvesting and the
yield is excellent both as to quality
and quantity. Nebraska City Press.
Wheat is an average yield, some of
the other important crops are above
the average, and corn, the most im
portant of them all, is far above, in its
present condition, and a month hence
it will be entirely out of danger. The
agriculturlst;is in luck this year, and
his good fortune will be a great item
in the country's prosperity.
A farmer in an Oregon paper says:
"Every year I hear of caterpillars de
stroy ing whole orchards, and there is
nothing that can be disposed of more
easily. I bore a bole'in the tree deep
enough to reach the sap, till it with
sulphur and then plug it up. The re
suit is magical. The sap takes the
sulphur to every branch and twig and
the caterpillars die at once. I gather
the insects up by the pint under trees
that have become infested with them
before I noticed it and destroyed
them. I have never known the rem
edy to fail, and I never knew a tree to
be injured by it, ami I have pursued
this course for years."

The lightning cut a queer freak at
Mrs. Gyger's place this week that goes
to disapprove the saying that "light
ning never strikes twice in the same
place." During the thunder shower
Sunday morning lightning struck a
large cottonwood tree quite close to
the house and about noon on Monday
struck the same tree again. The in
mates of tbe house were considerably
shocked by the lightning but were not
injured. Elmwood Leader.
Judge Gildersleeve, in the superior
court of New York yesterday signed a
decree granting Mrs. Ollie Corbett an
absolute divorce from her husband,
Pugilist James J. Corbett. Tbe de
cree provides that Corbett shall pay his
wife $5,200 a year alimony. In case
Mrs. Corbett remarries, she will forfeit
the alimony. She is authorized to re
sume her maiden name of Ollie Lake
and can remarry. Corbett cancot re
marry until his wife is dead.
Attorney Allen Ueeson was in town
yesterday in tbe interest of his candi
dacy for the office of county judge,
lie called at the Courier office and re
futed the statement that he bad prom
ised Mr. Barr that he would not be a
candidate. He also says that the re
port that be is up for trade in the in
terest of other candidates is untrue,
and that be will use every honorable
means to procure the nomination. As
the Courier, through erroneous in
formation, has given publicity to such
a report, we are free to make amends
and state that our informant has erred.
The state banking board has sent
out blanks to every bank in the state
so that application can be made under
the new law for charters. Applica

and as the work of making out tbe
charters will consume considerable
time, bankers are requested to apply
as soon as possible.

Over at West Side, Iowa, the ether
day, Mr. Corn and Miss Wheat were
joined in the wholy bonds of matri
mony, bv ltev. Cottonwood. After the
ceremony the choir very appropriately
sang, "What Will the Harvest He."
There were four rounds in the fight
between Mr. and Mrs. Corbett. First,
matrimony; second, acrimony; third,
testimony; fourth, alimony. This last
is a "knock-out" for Jim. New York
The Falls City News says that "over
in Kansas the newspapers have de
cided not to mention the name of a
candidate unless he so announces him
self through their columns. This is
proper. It is but right that the public
should know who the candidates are
thereby enabling it to make a wise and
judicious selection. As a party ex
pediency, no convention should enter
tain the name of a man who has failed
to herald his candidancy through pub
lic print. A qualified man can have
no objection to this, and if he is dis
qualified for any cause he can rely
upon it that bis sins will be found out
in time to avert a calamity."
Nowhere in Nebraska had irrigation
been carried on so successfully or on
so large a scale as in the Platte valley
between Alliance and Ogalalla. Be
sides tbe Belmont canal, which is 42
miles long, there are a number of other
canals to the east of- it, and all com
bined they irrigate now, or will irri
gate in the near future, about 100,000
acres of land upon which magnificent
crops can be raised and upon which,
in fact, great crops were raised last
year, even during the drouth. Alli

The Plattsmouth Tribune boasts of
being an "all home printed" paper.
Suppose it is. Out of thirty-four col
umns of reading matter but twelve
columns are of home production and
the other twenty-two columns are
edited by "Mr. Plate Matter." Now,
just where the difference comes in as
to whether one gets their patent pages
printed away from home or has the
plates shipped in and prints them at
home, we cannot see. Surely it is not
of enough import to crow about.
While we hope to see the new Omaha
institution prosper and would not
throw a straw in its way, yet we do
not like to see it misrepresent. As far
as actual home print is concerned
either The Journal or News dis
count the Tribune for matter actually
produced at home, and yet they make
no such claims. Louisville Courier.

General Superintendent Nicholas,
Superintendent Sutherland and Super

vice of the Union Pacific have gone to
Grand Island, where they will prose
cute G. W. Shank, charged with at
tempting to steal 1,000 tons of Union
Pacific rails. Saturday night Shank
engaged a number of teams and began
loading the rails on the wagons and
was going to ship them to Chicago,
where he had sold them to the Block
Pollack Iron company and some of
them to F. L. Patrick of Itockport,
Ind., who is building a small road.
The scheme was a most gigantic one,
and for pure nerve, Mr. Canada says
he has never seen it equalled in the
twenty-five years he has had to do
with criminals. Shank proposed to
ship these rails to the towns and where
he had sold them for S1G in Chicago
$17.. 50 in Ilockport, and already about
$-500 had been advanced, says the
Union Pacific officials. He was ob
served just in time to prevent a suc
cessful carrying out of the deal. It is
believed that there are others mixed
up in the deal.

very distressing. I made inquiry as
totbe nature of the disease and learned
that I bad a somewhat aggravated case
of Hemorrhoids or Piles. Was told of
several remedies and used them as di

such slight relief I cast about for a per
