- A DEADLY HATE.
In the cool of the morning John
Martin kissed hi wife and two little
one bye-bye at the door of their humble
home, balf frame, half dugout, took
hU team and went over the roll of the
prairie to work at hi plowing, about
half a mile from the house. A he
paused on the top of the roll before
going from eight, he called back to hi
wife: "Mary, let Georgle come to me
at noon with a lunch and fresh drink
of buttermilk. If o far that I don't
think TH come up for dinner. Give
the little coltieadrlnk and aomc grass,
His wife called back, "All right
dear," and waved her apron. He
turned to his team and started them
on. As he said 'get up. " the near side
animal, whose little coltie was loft be
hind In the rough corral, turned her
head, and looking back, whlnnlod long
"Come, oome, Fan, go on; what's
the matter with you? My babies are
back there too, and they see that your
baby doesn't get hungry or thirsty.
Come, go along old girl; we must go
and work for our babios."
The team started, and chatting cheer
fully to them for company's sake, they
went on to their work.
The sun climbed higher, and fur
row after furrow was turnod. John
kept tho team going steadily, but Fan
mras restive and would throw hor head
up and look nround and then throw
herself into the collar and forge ahead
as though suddenly anxious to got tho
"What does ail you. Fan; you seem
daft," said John, Anally, "does your
harness hurt you, old girl?" And thoa
ho went over the harness, carefully
examining each strap and piece where
It touched ber sleok coat. "Old girl,
your harnoss is all right, and you are
just fussing for nothing. Now, if you
don't go steady you'll get whipped."
He went back between the bandlos ot
the plow, and Fan threw her nose up
over her mute's neck, looking in the
direction ot the house and whinnied
o shrill and mournful that John In
voluntarily looked in the same di
rection. He started. Were his eyes
deceiving him! Was that a thin col
umn of smoke rising In the clear air
Ifrom over the roll of the prairlo? His
fcoart almost stopped beating. It Is
smoke! Fast as his fingers could
tnove he undid the harness fastenings
Irom the team, threw the harness to
Ihe ground, released one horse and
prang upon Fun's back. She needed
no urging or directing, but leopod like
an arrow from the bow. As they
jfatned the summit of the rise ot
ground, John looked, and had to
plutoh the horses mane to keep from
falling. A thin blue column ot smoke
iwas rising from the ground where his
home had stood, and as he cast an
agonized look over the plain for some
sign of life, he saw away off on the
distant horlson a fow rapidly dimin
ishing specks nnd a little cloud of dust.
s)h.Fan, hurry, hurry!" No use to
firge me'crealarir, she seemed to share
his fear, and was doing the best that
flesh and blood could do, At the little
bed of hot ashes sho stopped and he
rolled from her baok. For a few sec
onds he could not seo, and his limbs
trembled so that ho could not walk.
He knew what sight would meet him.
'All at once he steadied up and tho dim
ness loft his eyes; he braced himsolf
Jo moet the worst. A few steps from
him lay the body of his little boy
Georgio, the'one that was to bring him
his lunch and drink at noon. He bent
over and tenderly kissed the little doad
faoo. "Two more." he whispered to
himself, "two more; where are they?"
They were not far away tho llttlo
girl, three years old with long brown
hair, and the wife dead, and the
scalplng-knlfe had done its work. Ho
did not cry; he did not even groan, but
tbe looK oi life had gone out 01 nis
Side by side he laid the three,
around whom all his hop, all his am
bitions, his love, was centered, now
gone from him in a moment, it soomed.
Silently he gazed at them for a time,
and then turnsd away. His must be
'the hand to fashion their last resting
place. As he turned away to look
about again he heard a light whinny
come from the cattle yard, he walked
that way. There stood Fan over tho
body of her colt whinnying pitifully
and nudging It with her nose to Induce
It to get up.
"Your baby, too, hey, Fan. Poor
Fant poor me!"
He staid by his dead all day and all
night; then he laid them gently in the
grave he made them, pressing a last
' kisS upon the unresponsive lips of each.
Hi task finished, he mpunted Fan,
and drawing rein besido the mounds
for a last look, raised his hand toward
heaven and took oath: "I swear be

dead, that so long as I have life I
shall hunt Apaches. They have rob

A couple ot officers were enjoying
their after-dinner smoke sitting in
chairs tilted back against the shady
side of the quartermasters building.
"Sav. Captain, have you noticed

OUR OMAHA, LETTER.
The article by G. W. Brewester in
last week's Almakce 1 an eye opener
to nuoy of the Omaha reople. Every
cne i rocounce it first-class and say
that they can see now that the daily pa
pers of this city are not open to labor
ing men to discuss economic questions.
One of the dailies could give space to
six columns of gold standard argument
rom the pen of Carnegie, but had no
space to spare to the men it claim to
represent. It is natural to suppose
they received some of the gold they
were willing to give space to defead.
The Douglas county independent con
rention held Saturday was we'll at
tended, and tLe sien'chesen to the state
convention are 1" be relied upon. The
convention was presided over by Dr. C.
W. Crane who did credit to himself and
a!ao the convention. Tho whole con
vention was against any fusion what
ever with the old parties. The dele
gates to fie state convention were in
structed to work for the nomination of
Hen. J. W. Edgerton for supreme
udgc. Some very able speeches were
mide pointing out tho work to be done
by the independent par.y.
The locked out smelters will no doubt
soon be at work again, and will have
Iheir hours of labor reduced. The
sympathy of the entire community is
with them, as they have acted the part
of good law abiding citizens throughout
the entire lock-out. They have simply
demanded their rights, which every
human being should and will have in
the near future, in spite of the com
bined oppesition of the capitalists of
both Europe and Jttneriea.
There is great agitation iu Nebraska
on the school book question instigated
by school book agents, by reason ot the
rew law which went into force August
1st. It provides that all school boards
hall purchase and furnish books free to
the pupils. Before publishers can legal
ly contract with school board they must
tile a sworu statement of lowest prices
and a bond witn the State Superintend
ent. The publishers whose hooks are
now no Kenerally used in the it ite have
done so and reduced their priees. The
law was so judiciously framed that it
allows the school books now in the hands
of pupils to be utilized in the general
merest, so that it is the amy of the pub
lic spirited citizen to help out the dis
trict borrd by permitting his ebildron to
contribute and use the good books al
ready in his possession. In this way
the oread east upon me waters" will
hlp reduce his own taxes and those of
his neighbors as well.
It would be the height oi folly for the
hard working farmer and other labor
ing men in this state to throw away the
dollars they have spent in the purchase
of books to educate their children, when
by applying this invested capital they
can preserve the status quo with a posi
tive benetit to all concerned. it

Tho ceraolory at Montovidoo, Uru-

tho capital. It hus a monumental en

reputed to bo the most luxurious and
best arranged cemetery in South Amer

and divided into threo sections, sur
rounded by high walls, in which are
arranged on the inside innumerable
niches, each with its marble tablet re
cording the names of those whoso re
mains are deposited inside. The cof
fins are wound up to tho mouth of
these mural cellules by means of a
portablo lift and ladder combined, and
the whole stirrac or the won is hung
with wreaths of fresh flowers or of
beads, which stand out In strong re-
Uef against the marble facings. Each
section of the cemetery is carefully
laid out, fenced lu with iron railings,
and full of tombs and monuments ot
great price and pretensions, due to the
chisels of the sculptors of Romo and
Milan. The vegetation in the ceme
tery is most varied, and besides tho
funeral cypresses there are flowering
