the site for the proposed match factory,
as well as to make Mr. Gould, who was
a needy and worthy young man, a pres
ent of 110,000, in recognition of his
philanthropic proposals.
Colonel Downs carried the day, and
the hat was passed for Mr. Gould. The
subscribers to the fund numbered over
&GQ people: No one was slighted. The
boot-black, the cartman, the street clean
er were all permitted to contribute from
twenty-five cents upward.
Clerks and ci?ar makers letter carrier
ers, small dealing but large hearted
merchants, all chipped in from one dol

yers, clergymen, large . merchants and
moneyed men generally swelled the sum
uatil it was large enough to satisfy the
Mr. Gould. It took some time to collect
the money, for but few of the contribu
tors were men of means. , Most cf them
were day laborers or small salaried
clerks and town officials, and they had
to wait until they could spare the sum
subscribed from their wages.
In some cases the gift was a decided
sacrifice. Women helped out the men
and by sewing, washing or working in
stores earned the money to induce Mr.

We believe that we have placed
these elegant premiums within the
reach of everyone. There will be
much of interest, during the com
ing campaign. No one will regret
the payment of so small a sum as
25 cents for the Independent from
now until November 6. It will
contain a yast amount of informa
tion that cannot be obtained in any
other paper. It is the most fear
less champion of the rights of the
people to be found in the west. It
is first in the fight for 4 'equal rights
to all and special privileges to
none." Why not take advantage
of this liberal offer to secure a valu
able premium for yourself- or your
boy and help to increase the circu
lation and influence of such an ex
cellent paper as the Independent?

Gould to build a match factory here .
Over $3300 was thus raised; a lot was
purchased costing $3,000 and turned
over by warranty deed to Mr. Gould,
president of the Continental Match
Company; $5,000 contributed by. the
citizens of Ogdensburg was paid into
Mr. Gould's hands.
In due time the building was complet
ed. "Hundreds of people flocked to Og
densburg to secure employment in the
match factory. Real estate men built
scores of small houses to accommodate
the factory employes, and the town
boomed in anticipation of increased
Property went up, and 2,000 were add
ed to the population of the city; $17,417.
5) was the total sum to be paid over to
Mr. Gould as soon as the wheels began
to move. The amount was subscribed
and the people stood ready to remit the
unpaid balance as soon as Mr. Gould
completed his part of the contract,
which was regularly drawn and signed
by the trustee of the city of Ogdensburg
and the representatives of the Conti
nental Match Company. -
The city was on the tidal wave of pros
perity. Another match factory, the Ad-
irodack, had already located here, the
people generously contributing fj,uuu.
- When the great buildings of the
Gould factory were completed, the ma
chinery in, and all in readiness to start,
then a great combination of capital,
representing $15,000,000 swooped down
upon the townv and Gould betrayed the
people who had put 8,000 into his pock
et, and sold out to the Diamond Match
The magnificent 'factory, was aband
oned, the thousands of people who had
come here to earn honest wages were
told they were not wanted, and scores
of newlv built houses were left tenant-
less. The blow to the town was a
stunner, and though; two years have
passed, the laboring classes, real estate
owners and merchants have not recov
Simultaneously the Match Trust ab
sorbed the Adirondack factory, threw
300 men out of work and abandoned the
buildings and dismantled the plant.
Thus two of the principal industries of
the town werejpripoa4at one stroke,
and the 500-people Tof Ogdensburg who
had contributed so generously to
GoukTs pocket were filched of their sub
scriptions. for despite the protests and
demands and threats of the subscribers
and the board of Trade, Gould or the
Diamond Match Trust refused to re
turn the $3,000 to . the people or the
Delegations have, .called v upon them
and individuals hate written Gould, but
he turns a deaf eat 'ad- a . closed door
upon all their entreatiesl
"It was a million dollars in his pock
et," who paid $500 to the fund, "and
what did he care for our rights? He
could afford to fight us in the courts in
definitely." The city of Ogdensburg is admirably
situated for a match industry. Its
proximity to the great lumber mills of
Canada, and its unequaled water route
down the St. Lawrence to the Atlantic
make it an ideal spot for that particular
industry. But trusts wave aside all lo
cal conditions and favorable appoint
ments for successful competition.
The best way to meet competition is to
wipe out competitors, is the Trust mot

Would Renominate Mr, Smyth
Franklin, Neb., June 13, 1900.
Editor Independent: I notice in the
World-Herald that John O. Yeiser de
sires the nomination for governor of this
state, and Elmer E. Thomas the nomi
nation for attorney general at our com
ing state convention. Now, I do not
know whether Gov. Poynter would ac
cept a renomination; but if he will, I
believe the best interests of the state
require that we nominate him. The re
cord he has made during the present
term surely should give him a unani
mous nomination and an election by an
overwhelming majority.
As to the. office ;of attorney general, I
do not believe there is another attorney
in this state who, under the present cir
cumstances, is equal to the present in
cumbent for the "work devolving upon
that office. His success in the many
prosecutions for the' p'eople of this state
in that office is remarkable. I have
never had the 'pleasure of meeting Mr.
Smyth, and I only know him by the re
cord he has made. It matters not that
it would be a third term, the best inter
ests of the people of this state require
two more years of his skilful services.
Of course the Standard Oil Co. and
other powerful law breakers would be
glad to have a change in that office, but
the people can- ill afford to take the risk
of a change at this time.
C. J. Smyth is the man if he will ac
cept a renomination for attorney general.
Money la Horse Radish.
Ilorse radish is extensively grown by
market gardeners near large cittes. It
requires a very rich, deep, rather moist
soil, and is raised from sets, that is, thin
pieces of root, the trimmings of the pre
vious year's crop, cut into pieces of
four to six inches in length. The land
should be well worked before planting.
which has to be done early in spring.
In field culture the. sets are planted in
rows about three feet apart and IS
inches in the rows. The planting is
done by simply making a hole with a
pointed stick, dropping the set so that
it is about three inches below the sur
face, and then pressing it firmly with
the foot. During the first month or two
the ground has to be kept well culti
vated and clean; later, the leaves cover
the entire ground, so as to make culti
vation useless or unnecessary.
Keeping Winter Sqnaahea.
My method ofkeeping a few winter
squashes is somewhat different from
that generally recommended, and suc
ceeds so well that I will give it for the
benefit of any who may wish to follow
it. On the approach of winter, before
thereis danger of freezing, the squashes
are placed in a cupboard in the sitting
room, the door being left ajar through
the day, and closed at night in very cold
weather. It will be jseen that the tem
perature of the room is considerably
higher than is generally recommended,
often reaching 70 degrees. The Hub
bard squash has been kept in this way
till May entirely ' sound, and might have
been kept a month or two longer if de
sirable. On the approach of summer
they lose their fine grateful taste, and
are no longer fit for epicures. Ameri

are very convenient in changing hogs

The brood pen 6 should have a south
ern exposure, with a large window for
each pen, made low down, so the sun
shine can reach the little pigs. Notice
the temporary floor in the nest part,
to keep bedding dry. This can be re
moved when you wish to fatten hogs.
The partition boards, etc., can be laid
on brackets or pins above, where they
will be out oF the way and always
handy to get when needed. The floor
should slant back from the feed
troughs about four inches in the 12
feet. '
Don't be afraid tq haTe plenty of
windows, for hogs need lots of light.
If you wish to raise early pigs and
are afraid of their freezing, build a
temporary house over the nest about
five by six feet. This should be made
tight and warm, with door in front
large enough for the sow to go in and
out easily. If the weather is cold,
keep this door shut at farrowing time,
and when the pigs are four or five days
old remove the temporary pen from
over them, so they can get sunlight
nnd exercise. Don't neglect doing this,
for upon this may defend your success.-

The farmer cannot too fully under
stand that all' the live stock on his
farm with which he is brought in
daily contact will partake more or less
of his personal moods. If he kicks
open the barn doors in the morning
and thumps the old mare with the
shovel or piichfork to let her know
that he is boss cf that ranch, even the
hens will be nervous and out of sorts
all day. It is the placid, even tem
pered farmer who has docile stock. If
he leaves the kitchen door for the
barnyard singing "The Sweet By and
By." he will find his cows placidly
chewing their cuds and his hogs grunt
ing contentedly in the morning sun.
A horse understands when he is
sworn at, and it embitters . a cow to
threaten to break her bak ,with a
straw cutter. A pig in the pen which
receives a- cheery "Good morning
from the owner will fatten . twice as
fa6t as the one which climbs up to re
elve a olow from a club. It Is so with
the fowls. The farmer who puts on a
benevolent, fatherly expression as he
scatter xhe grain will find every hen
doing her best that day to lay an egg
to proyt her gratitude and confidence,
while the one who scowH and mutters
and tries to knock some hen's head off
with a clothes prop will find himself

Sheep Rnnnlna; In Ftelda.
In an article from the Ohio Experi
ment station it is suggested that when
sheep run out in the fields in'the win
ter they destroy many insects, as well
as weed seeds. There are places along corners and hedgerows where
j the grass is too green to be burned,
; being thick and matted down, and the
sheep will feed that closely, and any
insects which are harbored there,
which is such a place as many choose,
are either -trampled to death or-left
so much exposed to the weather as to
cause them to perish. We usually
burned such places as clean as .- we
could to get weeds and dry brush out
of the way, and then trusted the sheep
to do the rest, when we kept sheep

For Congress, First District, George WV35erge
- - t - ,
Mr. George W. Berge, named by the f usionists for congress in the First Nebraska
district, is a native of Illinois. He was born near Peoria on July 21, 18G4, and was
raised on a farm. . His parents afterwards removed to Bureau county. Mr. Bergo
attended the state normal schools at Valparaiso, Ind., and Diiorf, Illinois. lie
graduated from the latter in 1S87 in the scientific and literary department- Mean
while he had been teaching school, and his total experience as a pedagogue ex
tended over six years. '
Mr. Berge entered the law office of J. W. Watts,, dean of the law faculty at
Dixon, and was afterwards . in the law office of S. II. Behea, now United States
district attorney- fox the northern district of Illinois. He was admitted to the
bar in lS90jp and immediately came to Lincoln. Here he hung out his shingle and
has remaiaedeVerlsince. He is the junior member of the firm of Morning & Berge.
All of his relatives have been republicans, but Mr. Berge followed the flag of Mr.
Bryan frorn the"l5eginning. He was elected county judge in 1895 to fill a vacancy
caused by IW Lansing's failure to file a bond in time, but he never enjoyed , the
emoluments 'of the office, Lansing carrying the matter into the courts. Berge won
in the suprtPif court; but just as Lansing's term was expiring. Mr. Berge had the
united suppaRi of thei populist conventions in 1890 and 1898, but gave way each
time to the insistency of the democracy 'that they have the nomination.
This district is normally republican by a thousand majority, but with the
disaffection in the republicau ranks and the popularity and ability of Mr. Berge
to make a telling campaign, his election is practically assured.
Weak and trembling, unsteady of hand, uneasy
of mind. Frightened at trifles. Tortured by an
indefinable feeling of fear.
Excited by noise, oppressed by quiet never at
ease. Irritable and miserable. '
