Several Republicans Get Together
and Arrange Delegations.
SOME VERY LIVELY HUSTLING
A Couple of Sneak Thieves Visit Win.

A ooJ deal of caucusing was going
on in high republican circles in town
Thursday, and as soon as darkness
bad settled down there was a skurry
inptoandfro to et the fellows to
gether. The crowd that first met was
Ratio Dovey, .lohn A. Davies, John
Unruh aud Joe Klein of the first ward,
and they fixed up a delegation for
that ward. Another party met
at the Knights of Pythias hall
aud a good deal of "medicine"
was mixed on the county ticket, and
after this a lot of the high jinks lead
ers met at Mr. Davies' office, among
them Judge Chapman, Frank Dicksou
Dr. Humphery, and some of those
named above, aud the effort to fix up
a slate was made. Those who could
be seen today were very much inclined
to be mum, but as near as could be
learned the slate made out was about
County judge lieeson or Douglas
Mr. Sullivan favoring the latter.
It is reported that Judge Chapman
is determined that if the democrats
don't let up on him no democrat can
have a ghost of a show.
Tiik Jut'KXAi. stops to remark, par
enthetically, that a vast improvement
will have to be made in the above
ticket or that glove will have to be
worn by the other fellows.
The word has gone out that
the big fight i-s to come in the fourth
ward, where Henry Roeck and Jim
Sane, for the gang, will lock horns
witli Dan Smith and the young men in
behalf of llolloway for sheriff.
There is lots of fun in sight.
Nipped a Hat.
Friday afternoon at about three
o'clock two strangers entered the store
of Wm. llerold & Sob. Ona of the
men asked for a piece of cardboard to
put in his shoe. James llerold was
the only clerk in that part of the house
at the time and went to the back end
of the store to get the cardboard, fol
lowed by the stranger. llerold asked
the other fellow what he wanted and
he replied that he came in out of
the sun for a .few minutes,
llerold also asked the man whom he
was waiting on if he was a friend of
bis. and received a negative answer.
IV hen the fellow got his caidboard
and was putting it in his shoe the
other man dipped out the door, re
marking to him that he would wait
outside. llerold thought the man's
coat bulged out considerably, so he fol
lowed him out and overtook him in
front of Lehnhoff's store. Tapping
him on the shoulder he asked what he
bad under his coat, and the fellow
handed over a new hat which he had
nipped from the store, and then
started on a run. As no officer was in
sight, the fellow made his escape.
IVill Make It a Great Show.
The fisheries building at the fair,
from present indications will play a
star role in the list of exposition at
tractions. Commissioner Lew May
states that he has enough applications
for space from parties outside of the
state to fill a building twice the size of
the present one. He intends, how
ever, to give first place to Nebraska
fish, thus hoping to show the people
what can be done in the cultivation of
the finny tribe. Many farmers in the
etate who have had a little money at
their disposal and a spring on the farm
that could be diverted into a small
pond, have tried their hands at culti
vating several varieties of still water
fish, and the result in many cases has
been a little short of marvelous. Many
of these farms will exhibit at the state
Mlver Wedding Anniversary.
Last Sunday, Sept. 1st., was the
twenty-fifth anniversary of the mar
riage of Mr. and Mrs. C. Uengen, re
siding some five miles west of town.
A large number of friends, including
many from this city, went out to the
pleasant home of Mr. and Mrs. Ren
Ken aud the day was enjoyed in a man
ner long to be remembered. The host
and hostess were the recipients of
many and handsome and costly pres
ents. Mr. Rengen is one of the sub
stantial German farmers of Cass
county, and he and his estimable wife
have a legion of friends who hope they
will live to celebrate theirgolden wed
ding. When you come to town be sure to
cal for harness and fixtures at the
?ign of the big horse, where yon will
find an enterprising man who wants
your trade and means to get it if qual
ity and prices will bring it.

PERSONAL, POLITICAL AND PEfirlHENT;
Mark Twain isn't so cleaned out
financially as not to feel able to decline
some very haudsome offers for his
work. They say that while he was
planning his lecture tour around the
world he was asked to furnish twenty
letters of about 4,000 words each for a
lump sum of $10,000, or $500 a letter.
Some years ago be accepted a position
to write twelve European letters, for
which he received $1,000 apiece, and
that is believed to be high water mark
for such correspondence.
"At the Dunning insane hospital in
Chicago they have a new and infallible
cure for insanity. When a patient is
admitted and shows an unruly disposi
tion, they turn two or three brutal at
tendants loose on the patient, who
soon beat the life out of him. This is
the story the Chicago papers tell."
Ex. That isn't the only place they
use that cure.
The inscription on the Liberty bell
is, "Proclaim liberty throughout the
land to all the people." The Philadel-
phians who have applied for an in
junction, to prevent the bell beiug seut
to Atlanta, should have this inscrip

liberty throughout Independence hall

The following paragraph, which ap
peared in the St. Louis Republic,
should be copied by some of the east
ern papers that have been lying about
Nebraska's crop this year: "Nebraska
is going to make up this year for some
if not all, of the loss she sustained
-hrough crop damages last year. Her
crops have turned out well so far and
particularly in the districts that suf
fered most last fall. Wheat, oats and
alfalfa have more than come up to the
expectations, and the corn crop will
brt one of the largest in the history of
The orchardists of Cass couuty
should permit no foolish smallness to
interfere with the making of a good
fruit display at the state fair. A first
premium for the county display of
fruit would be worth many times the
cost of preparing and making the ex
hibit. And, then, the county fair ex
hibit should not be forgotten, either.
An exchange grinds out the follow
ing: In church or in state it is rule or

itisfoolor be fooled; in logic or in
law it is nick or be nicked; in gamb
ling or in trade, it is trick or be
tricked; in treaty or in war it is beat
or be beaten; in the struggle for life it
is eat or be eaten; in politics it is crow
or eat crow; in newspaper life it is hoe

The editor of the Wausau Times
says the cornstalks in his neighbor

Wii believe this is not true.
W. S. Morgan tells of a man up in
Michigan who had $2,800 deposited in
a Lansing bank- There came a "run"
on the bank aud, fearing its failure,he
drew out his money. The bank did
fail and passed into the hands of a re
ceiver, lhe receiver then brougnt
suit against the man who drew out his
$2,800 on the grounds that he knew the
bank was insolvent, and the law was
that no depositor should have the ad
vantage over another. This leaves the
case standing about thusly: If you
deposit money in the bank and the
bank becomes insolvent and "busts,"
you lose your money because you
didn't know; if you happen to discover
that the bank is insolvent and draw
your money out, you must pay it back
and lose it because you did know.
You see it's the best banking system
on earth. There is no getting around
it. The bank is protected on every
side. Great banking systemi Glorious

Nebraska's wonderful corn crop this
year is furnishing material for a spir
ited rivalry between some of our coun
try brethren as to which can tell the
largest story. The following appeared
in an exchange recently: "A story
comes to this office illustrating h.ovy'
fast the corn has been growing these
days. We do not vouch for its truth
fulness, but give it for what it is worth
the reader is to be his own judge:
'A farmer living. a few miles from

Far up on the loftiest and most in
accessible crags of the Swiss Alps,
among the drifts of eternal snow, is
found by the few daring climbers who
can make the ascent to those dizzy
heights, a small white llower of the
a3ter family, called the edelweiss,
(edel signifying noble, weiss mean
ing white) the plant and llower alike
being covered with a white cotton
like fuzz. The llower is as beautiful
as it is rare, and has been celebrated
both in soug and story. Mattie Vick
ers, it is remembered, when she was
here sang of the eidelweiss. The rea
son for speaking of this is that Ren
Hempel has added one of these flow
ers to the museum collection at the
court house. He procured it through
his son-in-law, John Kline, from a
Scotch Alpine mountain climber, who
plucked it from its native stem among
the snowy cliffs of the Swiss Alps. It
is a little beauty and will add to the
interest of the collection.
You visit the penitentiary ami nine
out of ten convicts, while admitting
the crimes charged against them, will
condemn and abuse the men who ex
posed their villainy and brought them
to justice. This seems to be very un
reasonable in the convicts, brt it is not
more so than in the case of men who
commit foolish or indiscreet acts of
any kind, and of which they are heart
ily ashamed, when they get mad be
cause the newpaper reports the facts.
It is the committing of a wrong that
injures one's self and family, and not
the exposure of the wrong. The ex
posure is for the protection of society
and has a tendency to reform the
wrong door, and it is the duty of
respectable papers to be fearless in
denunciation of wrong in all forms.

A Narrow Kscape.
dispatch in this morning's Ree
from Ashland says: "Rev. L,ee lluut
had a narrow escape from, death while
at work in the sand pit at pean's. Re
was digging &and for tbe improve'
ments to his bouse, and came out of
the pit for a few minutes forest, when
it caved in, piling several tons of dirt
where he stood. A peculiar feature of
the case was the fact that Dean at the
same moment dreamed that Hunt was
crushed in the sand pit. The dream
awakened him and so impressed him
that he went at once to the pit."
Modern Woodman Entertainment.
Last Friday the Modern Woodman
lodge at Nehawka gave a most enjoy
able entertainment to their friends.
An excellent program was rendered
and all who attended speak highly of
the Nehawka Woodmen. Messrs. W,

tainment and are pronounced in their
praise of the good treatment they re
ceived. The"PlanSifter"fiour is the popular

There's a pufple pathway, stretching
Out Into Hereafter Land,
(Jolden sunlight, softly touching
Nodding Mowers on either hand ;
There is ne'er a shadow lying,
Hear we only Hope's soft sighing;
Birds of Paradise are flying
Over in Hereafter Land .
Though with pain your heart be aching,
Look into Hereafter Land ;
Pain, perhaps, of others making;
Naught turns out as you had planned
Make dull fact give way to seeming,
Of the bliss to come be dreaming.
Watch the silver sunlight beaming,
Over in Hereafter Land.
Sorrow shall be turned to singing
In the sweet Hereafter Land ;
Death shall luse his power of stinging
At Omnipotence's command.
Never doubt, they shall be given
All the joys for which you've striven ;
Just beyond the gutes of Heaven,
Over in Hereafter Land.
