THE FARMERS' ALLIANCE, LINCOLN. NEB. THURSDAY, APR. 23, 1S91.
The live stock men cf St. Louis are
excited over a case of "big jaw." They
have jast heard of the racket between
the Bet and World-Herald.
Atkinson Enterprise: When the peo
ple begin to kick and agitate reforms,
these horn the reform would strike
the hardest call them cranks. When
the reforms have been accomplished,
the new generation which has reaped
the gTeater benefit calls them patriots.
If Boyd's veto of the Newberry bill
serves to emphasize to the people the
fact that they can hope for nothing
from either of the old parties, and to
. unify them on indep.nuent lines, vic
tory will surely come out of what seems
apparent aejeM..itkmton unurprute.
The Sioux City Journal says the rail
road men in Iowa are swearing that
they are making no money. Well, what
of it. There isn't anybody making any
money these times, ana railroad men
are no tetter than other people. This
thing of railroad companies making
money all the time while other people
can't make money half the time Is cne
of the Mings that's the matter with u.
Let 'em take their medicine along with
the rest of us,
Gov. Boyd made the startling discov
ety that the Xewberry bill Would rob
the agriculturist of $1,000,000 in one
season, and at the same time bankrupt
the railroads. If the railroads are
bankrupted and the agriculturist
rob'd, who gets the spoils. O'.Yeil
And all that ruin was to be accom
plished by a slight reduction in local
rates, the local business being only
about 13 per cent of the total business
cf the roads. Give us a rest!
'Ulysses Dispatch: An enterprising
young farmer of Lincoln county went
to North Platte to draw his rations of
seed wheat, but was informed that only
married men were entitled to the bene
lit. "I didn't know that," said the ap
plicant, "or I should have made pro
visions accordingly; I'll see you later,"
and he went to the judge's cilice, pro
cured a license, went to the home of
his best girl and explained the situation
to er, and in three days returned and
suctessfully claimed his share of the
wheat. That kind of enterprise will
overcome any obstacle in the way of
"Ibe farmers and laboring men have
been closely scanning the Bee all these
years and they are pretty well convinc

The above is taken from the great

The other day a boy fifteen years old
stole a pair of shoes. His father had
ilied ft 'vk before and a mother and
three children were dependent on him
for something to eat. After searching in
vain for work, he despaired of finding It
and took the shoes to exchange some
where for bread. For a wonder the Jus
tice released him after a night in jail
and investigating his story. The family
was found to be without a morsel to eat
and with not enough fuel or clothing to
keep warm. Thisbappened in the sound
of the roar of the trains loaded with the
abundance of the land, packing bouse
provision and grain. A luminous case
of over production. -Ottameca World.
Al. Ewan has been arrested for crim
inal libel on the complaint of some Ne
braska City parties. This fellow U
said to be the author of the infamous
lies about members of the 22d legisla
ture, published in the Kansat CUu Nun.
With a National Farmers' Alliance,
the Farmers' Alliance and Industrial
Union (Southern Alliance), the Farm
ers' Mutual Iienefit association, the
Grange and the Citizens' Alliance work
ing in harmony the old parties would
face a combination very Lard to over
come. But there can be o concert of
action among these discordant ele
ments so long as ambitious dema
gogues are striving to ride into promi
nence and power through their influ
ence. Omaha Bee..
Yes! Just so. And luckily it hap
pens that the elements are not discord
ant, and that there are no such people
as the Bee alludes to engaged in the
movement. So whoop 'er up, boys
we're sure to get there.
The Chadron Advocate says; Appar
ently all the towns in the state are gone
crazy after the new style of residence
architecture in which the house is tor
tured into a dozen gable ends, stuck all
over with little painted pillars which
look like barber poles, shingled all over
the front door and basement and then
turned loose the laughingstock of all
people of wel'. bala need minds. Little
colleges hardly big enough to hold up a
mortgRge in Lincoln, Grand Island and
other towns, are built after this beshin

until it makes the soul sick for the re
turn of common sense aud comfort In
The Bee blisters John M. Hagan for

Hastings, May 1st, for the purpose of

Boyd's veto. The Omaha paper la un
just aud unfair to Mr. Itagan. Though
this gentleman wa at one time a rail

Tha Farmer' Hors and How to
It in acMom that the farmer rainea
a horns with the intention of wearing
him out. The greater purt of t lie
lior' rained on the farm are worked
till they arrive at a salable age and
then sold to go to some of the lui-e
cities. I would Bay, then, the farmer'
horse would be the breed or kind of a
borne that lie could do bis farm work
with and ill the most readily and for
the biglieut average price. Tliia being
the case we will have to adopt one of
the many draft breeds. A to which
of the draft breeds is bent calculated
for the farm and at the same time
commands the highest price I will
leave for the reader to divide for him
self. For my part I would prefer the
To raise a good horse we must have
good stock to breed from, and then
Follow with plenty of good feed and
good care. But we do not all have
good mares to breed front, and many of
are just Htartingin the business haven't
got the means to purchase an ap
proved brood mare. Under these cir
cumstances we must use the best wo
have, breeding to the best horse we
can find. Don't breed to an inferior
or low grade horse just because he is
$5 or $10 eheaiw, or rather lower in
price, as the service of a good horse is
cheaper at any reasonable figure t han
an inferior horse for nothing. There
are few neigliljorhrRls where there is
not aunod drait stallion, aud if we
would only patronize tins good one
there would be more ol mat wort ami
fewer of the inferior sort. Hut we
must not only breed from the best,
but we must judiciously feed and care

Plant some carrot this year, if you

ing to their scarcity and your location.
What you can not ell will make an
excellent and profitable addition to
the feed of the hornes, cows and colt
through the winter. A few pound fed
to the cow each any will go far to
ward making the line "butter color"

many they should not cost more than
10 cents.per bushel, and will be worth
very intuit more than that as an ad
dition to the feediiijj ration. How the
seed rather thickly in drills, and thin
out with a narrow-hladed hoe, so as
to leave the roots about three inches
apart. The latter method will not
giveas nice, smooth roots for market,
but wii give as good a yield, quite n

reduce the labor of thinning, i'se the

the labor of digging is not so much r.s

Butter Should b Biin-Sftltd.
There are two strong reasons why

Hoard's Pairyman. First, that the

it can lie easily washed out; and
second, that the granule, of butter
