The "Merger" At
Four Corners.
.No one knew just when or how the
" hostilities between the "North Siders"
. and the "South Siders" had begun.
But through long years it had been
. accepted as a fact that there should
be no social or business communi-
' cations between the people who lived
' on "the south side of the main street
of Four Corners and those who lived
, on the north side of the aforesaid
" street.
Incidentally it might be remarked
that Four Corners boasted of but one
street, which ran east and west, which
' ' was due to the fact that it was im
possible to run anything other than a
t bridle path north and south because
of the steep hills.
The feud smoldered as a rule, each
side remaining unto itself, but every
four years it burst into flame because
of the postoffice. So intense was the
feeling of hostility that a South Sider
- would, as a rule, refuse to subscribe for
I a paper or correspond with friends
; when a North Sider held the postoffice,
because that would necessitate cross-
ing the street and doing business with
an enemy. It was the same thing
when a South. Sider held the office.
'Naturally this resulted in a ratner
meager postoffice business.
When Postmaster Jed Bilkins' term
' was about to expire the regular quad
liennial fight blazed up. Jed took no
hand in it. save to lend his aid ana as
sistance to Lem Hugglns, the son of
Squire Huggins, and Lem was asking
for the office on the ground that he
had been a volunteer in the Spanish-
- American war and had come home
with a limp, due to a Mauser ball that
caught him in the hip while he was
scampering up a hill near Santiago and
saying unprintable things about the
Spaniards.
1 "It stands t' reason," Baid Post
master Bilkins, speaking oracularly,
"that Lem air entitled t' th' honah.
He has fit undah th' flag, is able t"
read an' write, an' is a No'th Sidah.
Th last qualification, I may say, is
th" chiefest."
"I hear Sack Rickett's daughter,
SSally, is goin' t' try t' get the office,"
remarked Putnam Shattuck, called
. "Put" for short.
"Yep; heard that when I druv ovah
t' . Blossville with Majah Slocumb
t'other day. Th' majah said he heard
about it at Blossville while he was
a-waitin' f'r his mail."
"Well, if a South Sidah is t git it
I. guess Sally Ricketts is all right,"
said Pete Hensel. "I've seen her
acrost th' street several times an
she's a powahful likely lookin' gyrl."
"Look a hyar, Pete," angrily ex
claimed Put; "I ain't ust t' hearin no
No!th Sidahs braggin' about South
Sidahs, an I'm hyah t' say that I ain't
goin t' stand f'r it."
, . ;iWall," drawled Pete, "I guess I'm
ipurtv able f'r t' say what I please an'
make it stick."
"If you mean that f'r me, Pete, guess
we'd better adjourn behind th' black
smith shop an' settle it f'r fair."
But nothing came of the threatening
incident. For more years than Pete
and Put cared to recall they had
been threatening to fight and settle the
dispute as to which was the better
' man, but so far they had not come to
' tlows. This fact was deeply regretted,
for the reason that a considerable
quantity of dog-leg tobacco and moun
tain dew had been wagered on the re
sult when they did come together.
"ti '"As the days wore on Lem Hugglns
was busy. He secured the signatures
of all the North Siders on his petition,
, and then rode far and wide to the
I north to secure the signatures of those
; who sympathized with his side of the
. street.
- "It'll be mighty funny if I can't
beat a gyrl f'r th' place,' said Lem to a
friend whom he met up in the hills.
But Sally Rickett was also busy.
Sally had been down to Sharpsburg
to school, and her horizon of informa
tion was much larger than the average
of her friends on the South Side. She
wasted hut little time in securing sig
natures to her petition. Being wise
fh lier day and generation Sally made
use of her knowledge of politics and
beseiged the congressman from ner
district. She knew that often a pair of
bright eyes and a rosebud mouth car
ried more weight than a huge and un
gainly petition.
The fight waxed warmer and warmer
as the summer grew, and as September
' drew near- the time set for Postmaster
Bilkins to step down and out physi-
' cal encounters grew frequent. Squire
' Wheeler's son met Judge Pollock's son
down on the creek, where both were
fishing, and as they lived on opposite
sides of the street fishing was sadly
neglected for a time and a fight en
. gaged in that resulted in sending the
participants home in sadly deranged
, conditions. This led to a heated argu
ment across the street between tne
squire and the judge, and another phy
sical encounter might have resulted
had. not both squire and judge been
too proud to step across the dividing
line.
When Put Shattuck remarked that
"One was afeerd an' t'other dassn't,"
the judge withdrew Into his judicial
dignity and ignored the remark.
By strange and perverse fate Lem
and Sally had decided upon the same
date for their final appeal to Con
gressman Selkins. Thus it was that
they met on the depot platform at
Blossville, where they boarded the
train for the distant city of HawKS
vllle. Having never been formally in
troduced, and being staunch partisans
as well as rivals for a postoffice ap
pointment, they did not greet one an
other. Lem took a seat in the forward
part of the coach and Sally snuggled
up in a seat near the rear.
Something hurt inside of Lem's
breast. He knew what it was, but
dared not admit it. As. he sat by the
window and watched the landscape
slipping past he recalled how often
he had allowed his eyes to follow
Sally's trim figure as she tripped down
the other side of the street; also, how
often he had wished silently, of
course that Sally had been born and
bred on his side of the thoroughfare.
He managed to withstand the tempta
tion to look back at her, but it re
quired the exercise of all his will
power.
With Sally the situation was not
vastly different. She had announced
her candidacy before Lem had entered
the race, and when she thought of his
limp and remembered the first time sne
saw him in his brown uniform, when
he was limping upon crutches down
the other side of the street, her heart
failed her. She would have with
drawn had she not been impelled by
pride and patriotism to remain. She
kept her eyelids demurely down, but
not so far that she could not catch oc
casional glimpses of a mass of dark
brown hair and the curve of a sturdy
neck set upon square shoulders.
"Guess he don't deserve my sym
pathy," whispered Sally to herself.
"He might make way for a lady."
But even this did not quite satisfy
her mind.
"Guess I'll stop thinking about It
and read," said Sally to herself, and
suiting the action to the words took
a novel from her handbag and settled
back against the cushions.
She read for a time and then fell
into a doze. How long she slept she
never knew, for the awakening was
awful. With a crash and a roar the
coach left the rails and toppled over
into the ditch. When the first shock
was over, the groans and cries of the
Injured filling the air, Sally, waiting
only until she discovered that she was
uninjured save for a few severe
bruises, set bravely at work to give as
sistance to the less fortunate. The
uninjured passengers, assisted by the
train crew, worked with a will and
the wounded made as comfortable as
possible on the green grass of the
right-of-way.
"Guess we've got 'em all out," said
the conductor.
But Sally, looking around the circle
of faces and then- glancing at the
wounded lying upon the grass, missed
one face and form.
"No, there's another Lem Mr.
Huggins where is he?"
"Who's he?" queried the conductor.
"He was a passenger on the train,"
replied Sally, starting towards the
wreck. '
They soon found him, Insensible and
pinned down by a beam that cruelly
pressed across his breast. It was
Sally who wiped the blood from his
face. It was Sally who held the cup of
water to his lips, and it was Sally's
face that met his gaze when he opened
his eyes and groaned with pain.
"What's the matter?" asked Lem
in a feeble voice.
"Only a wreck and you were hurt a
little," said Sally. "Now remain
quiet, Mr. Huggins. You mustn't
talk."
"Why?"
"Because because well, because 1
say so.
"All right," whispered Lem. sinking
back into unconsciousness.
A month later Postmaster Bilkins
handed Lem a huge envelope bearing
the postoffice department seal and
stamp.
"Guess we got 'em licked again,"
chuckled Bilkins.
"Guess so," said Lem, but without
much enthusiasm.
"Ain't appearin t feel very gay
about yer victory, Lem." i
"Huh?" - v
"I said yer don't seem t' me "
But to the postmaster's wonderment
Lem walked away and actuany crossed
the street. .Postmaster Bilkins could
hardly believe his eyes. Lem Hug
gins, North Sider and prospective post
master, actually crossing over to the
South Side. Bilkins shuddered and
crouched as if expecting the very
heavens to fall. f
He had not yet recovered from his
amazement when Put Shattuck rushed
op and shouted:
"Heard th news?"
"No; what is it?"
"Lem Huggins is goin t' marry Sally
Rickett."
"No!"
"Yes!"
"I don't believe It."
"Fac Jus' th same. Sally missed
him when he got smashed up In that
wreck, an' then drew out o' th" race so
Lem could git th' postoffice."

said Postmaster Bilkins. '
"No, it's puffeckly nateral. It's git

"Why, it's only another o' them

To Nebraska Populists
During the past week I have mailed
a personal letter to every precinct
committeeman in the state (except
those shown on our records as hav
ing moved' out of the precinct) urging
the following:
1. Good attendance at the primar
ies, at the county conventions, and at
the state convention.
2. The election of earnest, energetic
populists as delegates to the countv
conventions and to the state con
vention; and that care be taken to se
lect as delegates to the state conven
tion men who will be sure to attend.
The matter of reduced railroad rates
to Grand Island has been taken up
with the Western Passenger associa
tion and although I have not yet re
ceived final decision, I feel safe in say
ing that the rate will at least be one
and one-third for the round trip on
the certificate plan; but it is possible
we may secure an open rate of one
fare for the round trip. Due notice
will be given in all the papers as soon
as the association advices me of Its
action. In case of a certificate rate,
delegates should take a receipt from
the ticket agent for amount paid for
ticket.
Let me urge upon every precinct
committeeman and party worker that
victory awaits us in the coming cam
paign If we will but show a desire to
be victorious. It will not be a walk
away, but will require an earnest ef
fort all along the line. I am aware
that this is a busy season, but a few
hours spent at your primary will
mean much in starting the campaign
of! with Its best foot forward. The
republican- party is divided and wrang
ling; now is our time for united, earn
est effort.

THE VROOMAN PLAN
Mr. Gibson Discusses Co-Operation and
Kindred Subjects
Editor Independent: Vrooman
Brotherhood farm at Kansas City is
not a socialist company like at Ruskin.
It is called the Western Co-operative
Association. To start with, the bro
therhood put $8,000,000 of their own
money in if. They have offers of mil
lions they cannot yet use. They hare
now running 160 department stores
in the United States. They get 5 per
cent for their money and all who in
vest get 5 per cent. Cost $10 to be
come a member on which 5 per cent Is
also paid; there is no other profit to
capital. The laborers for the farma
and factories are hired and get com
mon wages and the brotherhood so far
own all lands etc. Labor has no vote.
They own several big farms. The in
dustrial college at Trenton has run
3 years (1,600 acres). Cost $125 for
tuition and board three years. Re
handling the capital five times a year,
the purchasing member, who are the
$10 memberBcand tne laborers em
ployed by them, pay in reality only
1 per cent profit on the goods bought.
Buying for 160 stores (before they can
manufacture the goods) they can buy
50 per cent cheaper than a small mer
chant can. - No merchant can live 30
days In the town where they start.
They will be in Lincoln shortly. The
$10 purchasing member gets all the
profit. But they can and do mostly
reinvest it; members consent In or
der to extend and develop the business.
Will farm, manufacture and transport
(railroads, etc.) steamboats, mine,
lumber, saw mills. The students so far
trained in their own way. They use
themselves in their business. Fact
they haven't near enough of them for
managers. They have to learn on the
farms and In machine shops, etc.
Where they start they first secure the
people as $10 members. All the old
merchants are asked to join and stock
is paid for at the price the Vrooman
brotherhood can buy for, tor get froze
out. Laborers and others have to
buy the lots and houses in which they
live (indirectly no profit in house and
material). They calculate to take in
all the common people, do banking;
but use the money in their business;
pay 5 per cent, don't take faster than
they can use. It is an Improvement
on the Rochdale. Will go on the plains
and start work on big irrigation farms
in a year.
What is monopoly? There is many
kinds of monopoly, but the most im
portant Is the market; and more Im
portant is monopoly in land in the
rain belt. There are In the United
States 16,000,000 men over 20 years
landless; could not use land without
paying rent, though God created earth
for all. All the people in the United
States can be fed good, and cotton
raised, from a patch of land the size
of Nebraska and Kansas, irrigated;
so there must be land monopoly and
land held out of good use. Half the
people have not all they can eat and
thousands starve to death. In ancient
Peru land was reallotted every year.
They irrigated, but with the rudest
machines, were able to raise food for
seven years ahead. With all our fine
machines and our civilization where
are we at compared to them? Only
one in a hundred in the United States
is tame enough to suicide or starve to
death; the others will eventually vote
for a redivlsion of the land, and prob
ably will rather fight for life than
starve to death; then land will havo
no price. Land used for 10 or 20 years
Is not as good as when bought for
$18 for a 160 homestead, and is not,
therefore, intrinsically worth as much
except the house and barn on one acre.
God knows, a dirty cattle yard is not
an Improvement on the nice green vir
gin prairie. The work of breaking
the land for which the irrigated crop
pays from year to year, does not add
to the value of land. But the irriga
tion plant is a valuable permanent Im
provement; to some extent also is the
grove planted on 10 acres.
Roosevelt said that the man who
owned the irrigation water owned the
land, or rather, what was raised on
the land. On the big sub-arid plains
every Tom, Dick and Harry will soon
gobble up and monopolize the land
out of use. But if I or any one else
comes along with a big windmill and
pump, which represents labor, and
pump 24 inches of water on 160 acres
n a year, then on this theory I would
own all of the crop between an irri
gated and not Irrigated crop. For
nstance. if the farmer raises 5 bushels
of corn to the acre without irrigation.
but I. owning the mill, raise 50 bush
els, then by right I own the 45 bush
els. My mill represented work; his
gobling the land for quarter fee rep
resented monopoly only. Just think
of this, will you? The farmer prob
ably couldn't or wouldn't buy the
$1,000 mill, so there labor and monop
oly would be at loggerhead.
What Is the free competition, so
much praised, and the survival of the
fittest theory carried to its logical
point? The weeds survive and the
crops perish. The lion would sur
vive and the other animals perish. The
mountain robber would survive while
the industrious miner would perish.
n the industrial world, the 4.000 be
sotted millionaires would survive; all
the others would perish. The big fer
tile plains of Babylon and the burled
pyramids and hundreds other places
bear witness to this; 25,000,000 have
starved to death in India.
What Is our little planet among 5(L-
000,000 planets? What Is man on our
planet? There certainly ought to be
room without rent. Nothing 13 set
tled until it is settled right. There Is
no party that proposes to do for the
16,000,000 landless and dependants
what the socialist party will do. With
the .16,000,000, etc., it is not a question
of common ownership of property for
they have none. But with them It is
a questin of right to work on mother
earth and natural resources, without
rent; common ownership of machines
and the right to all thejr produce, no
rent, interest or profit to be filched.
Co-operation in producing would Kive
best results. Government socialism
will do that. Don't be afraid that any
thing man can do will destroy the
planet; be plenty time and room to
experiment on something better, if
better there is. The 16,000,000 and de
dependents have nothing to lose but
their chains; and then, as now, will
certainly live as good.
