O, the dear little farm, the queer little fann( The brown little farm on th. hill. Bweot children once played on this brown little farm Now answer me this with your pen. "Does a mother not feel secure from harm 'Neath the roof whence her boys grew to men?" O, serene little farm, you are queen little farm. The little brown farm on the bill. Here the daughters weDt forth, their eyes like the stars. To toll in the world's busy looms; 'Till the lights in the west from the sunset's red bats Are each a lone lamp In my rooms.

A "drummer" came into a village store, A3 dapper as he could be, From his sample pack he took out a pack To show the merchant some tea. To edify those standing by, He spoke, and thus quoth he: "Dear sir, you should make your order large, For the crops are good this year, To drying winds there is no'.hing to charge, From frost is nothing to fear. The grangers have settled down to 'biz,' To get out of last year's fix. And Nebraska's big crop of 91 Is death to their politics." A granger sat oa an apple barrel. As sunburned as he could be; With a sounding slap like a thunder clap He smote the patch on his knee. Touched to the quick by the drummer chick. He spoke and thus quoth he: " 'Tis true that the crops are good this fall, Our prospects are better, but that's not all; To holp us out of last year's fix, Our best crop is our crop of politics." The granger in politics came to stay, We've followed too long an imported way. But our votes and our corn we intend to mix, And ship out a few car loads of politics We're tired to death of extortion and lies, Of political bosses, schemers and spies We'll drive 'em across the river Styx, By means of our crop of politics. Don't insult the granger with stuff of this kind, For we aro in earnest and know our own mind. The croo that will count when election is done Is the political crop of '91. HOW STRANGE IT SEEMS!

Stetson, entered the club room. He was escorted to where Mr. Flower was standing, and the cheers broke out once more. Mr. Curtis immediately introduced him as the next speaker. Mr. Cleveland began his speech as follows: Gentlemen: I find that you members of the Democratic club are the greatest gourmands for speeches I ever saw, When ever I have visited you I have been asked for a speech before I got anything, else out of you. You may be are surpriseda t seeing me here tonight, as for the past few days I have been more interested in nominal politics. Cheers and laughter. I can say that I have been especially interested, although the subject of that solicitude on my part will never be of any especial ben efit to the Democratic party laughter. unless there comes a time when prohibi tionists correcting himself I mean the woman's suffrage, passes.

Moreover, the Republicans everywhere seem to me, I am happy to say, to be living up to their record in the matter of honest money. I shall probably not take any pari in this fall's campaign, but I will be on deck for next year's campaign if things remain as they are at present. I will then in all probability take the stump. But I would like to have my say this year in New York and Massachusetts." Is there any truth in the rumor that you have resigned from the civil service commission?" asked the reporter.

RAILWAY TRAINMEN MEET The Brotherhood Bold Rather Brisk tost toe, at Calosborf Jay Goald Again at His Desk Lake Bates Dropping O IB cert Re-elected. Chicago, Oct. 6. So far from insur ing stability of rates, ths heavy grain movement from the west to tbe east is likely to bring the demoralization that has been successfully staved off dnring the dull portion of the year. This, of course, will not be dne to the increase of tonnage, but to ths fact that all other outlets to tbe seaboard seem to be in greater favor than in Chicago. While the east-bound shipments of grain seem to be very largs by way of St. Lonis, Duluth, New Orleans and Galveston, the movement by way ot Chicago ii lighter than it has been for years at this season. Ths traffic officials on the lines entering Chicago from ths west are beginning to grumble and even to make threats. These companies have been extremely conservative during the present year ignoring the cut rates that were known to have been adopted at times by some of their competitors, in the belief that such practices wonld be discontinued as soon as the bnsy season commenced. They now say for bearance has ceased to be a virtue and that they cannot afford to stand by and let other roads absorb their share of ths traffic, on which they have depended to retrieve the losses of the year. Complaints are made that the Mis souri Pacific cutting grain rates from the Missouri river, and that the Great Northern and the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha are employing unfair means to divert traffic to Duluth. It is even intimated that one or two of the Chicago lines have taken steps to meet this competition, and that in a few days they will be engaged in a scramble for busiuess. A Rock Island officer said the Chicago and Alton had undoubtedly cut tbe rate from Kansas City to Chi cago to meet the rates ot the Missouri Pacific and the Memphis line, but the only evidence offered was a sudden in crease in the Alton's business and a cor responding falling off in that of other roads. The Alton Deotile sav that thev have not reduced the rates as yet and that wben they do it will be an open re duction. It is generally conceded that me rate Buuauou is critical. The Brotherhood of Railway . Trainmen Galesburo, Ills.,' Oct. "8. The ha tional convention of the Brotherhood ot Railway Trainmen opened here at 0 o'clock behind closed doors. Four hun dred delegates are in attendance. The afternoon was taken np mostly with hearing addresses from the grand lodge officers. Secretary Sbeeban stated that during the last year be had been subjected to much abuse both from those connected in an official way with the order and by individual members. He then turned his attention to the trouble on the Northwestern road and told of the abuse that had boen heaped upon himself and the grand master. Referring to Editor Rogers, of The Railway Trainmen's Journal, he said that during all the conference Mr. Rogers had been lukewarm and had then and since tried to shirk the respon sibility of what wus then done. A stormy scene followed the secre tarv's 8Teech and the lie was cussed. Mr. Rogers got tip in his seat and, wild with rage, said all tne charges made by Mr. Sheehan were false, and he chal lenged the gentleman to prove his asser tions. He was called to order by tbe cbair and for the present the mattei was hushed up. Grand Master Wilkinson also ad. dressed the convention on the trouble that had been made during the year. The reports of the grand lodge officers were distributed among the members before adjournment. Tne secretary's report showed that the Brotherhood was in a nourishing condition, tne pres ent membership being 20,499. Jay Gould. New York, Oct. 6 Jay Gould has recovered sufficiently from his collapse of la6t week to be able to attend to busi ness again. He came down from Irvington and reached his office in the Western U.don building at about 10 o'clock. J r. Gould declined to recetve any callers during the morning but sent out word tbat he was feeling better than nt any time for a week. Mr. George Got. Id, who was also in town, ridicules tbe idea tbat bis father's health is in a critical state, and says he will pick up strength as soon as cold weather comes. The heat and sultriness of the past month have been very wearing on the elder Mr. Gould's nerves. A Seven-Year War Ended. Pittsburg, Oct. 8.

He took refuge in a building after a short ran, where be was beseiged by the crowd and would have probably been lynched but for the arrival of aquad of police. Although badly injured by the stones thrown at him Lyons managed to make his exit from the rear of the building an ddisappeared. THEIR FATE UNKNOWN.

The Daily Slate Jeurnal, of March 11, 1885, contains this beautiful little notice: "The legislative party which lnft Lincoln Sunday morning was urd ubedtly the merriest committee of 'live stock' look ing after grazing interests that has gono from Nebraska to the centre of attrac tion. By the courtesy of Hon. L. M. I'cnnott, one of the finest sleepers was placed under control of Speaker Field and a colored porter whose unceasing care and attention made our compan ions happy. Before starting thoughtful friends had stored well tilled dishes and 'so forth' in the baggage department for our comfort and safety." This trip spoken of in the Journal was a junketing trip to New Orleans. The kind attentions shown Allen W. Field and others by tho railroad was the coo ing which consummated in the marriage and which has bound Fidd to the roads ever since. FIELD AS A liUKKKlt. In 1887, Hon. Allen W. Field ran for judge of this district. At that election Maxwell received, in this county, for supreme judge 3,015 votes, O'Day (dem) 1,888, and Abbott (prohib) 680 votes; re-' publican plurality 2,233. This was- the head of the ticket. Mr. Field received 8,158 and Mr. Sawyer (dem) 2,873 votes; Fields plurality only 783. The differ ence between Field's plurality and Max well's was 1,449 vctes. So hemusthive run just that ruuoh behind his ticket then. A change of only 332 votes would have lost him the county. He will get his medicine this time. FIELD AS A LEGISLATOR. While yet a young man and in the legislature we see how Allen W. Field had an eye to business. He always looks out for No. 1 even if he has to con demn all the public roads in tho county and run a Sunday base ball club and beer garden to do it. In 1883 Field, while a member of the legislature, voted for the bill to pay tho Nebraska City National bank$13,640.50. The facts about this claim are, that the state brought a suit against the bank and recovered a judgment for $8,269 04 for state money found t. be in the pos session .of the baik, deposited there by Gov. James This suit was tried in Lancaster county, and was taken by the bank to the Supreme Court aid there the judgment was affirmed; the bank was compelled to pay the amount of the judgment, and then some years later appeared before the legislature with its c'.aini, which two successive legislatures rejected. The legislature of 1883 gave this bank $13,010.56, and for this bill Mr. Field voted aye, and worked for its passage. LOOKS LIKE BOODLE. In tho suit of YY. E. Griffith et al ts W. E. G.
