THE EMPERORS BREAKFAST.
Fiftsoa crstrtrW aae
Emperor Ninto. of Japan
Milked upon his roof at daybreak,
Waubing if tha toils bptraa
V'U to gild tha cedar f rieao
' in aia imw-4 jTiileri:
W ell to wl the Utw plates
On hit inner palace gatea;
For the Qu n would have it to
Fifteen hundred years ago!
Walking on hit roof, he spied
Streets and law" and quarter teeming;
Saw a city spreading wide.
Ah ! but moan and sad of teeming
Khowlhjst) lowiy wooded huts
Underneath the King's house pr learning;
Though wu-h humble wicket shuts
One world out and one world in,
That to great and this to small,
Yet, to Uie poor hearts within,
Th little world thfir all in all!
Just Uicn the waiting-maids bora through
The breakfast of King JMntoku.
Quoth the Emperor gazing round
'Wherefore, when my meats abound,
See I not much smoke arise
From these huts beneath my eyeaf
Chimneys put into the air,
Yet no chimney-reek is there
Telling that the household pot
Bubbles glad with rohan hot.
Gild me no more galleries.
If my people pay the gold !
Let my rates uu plated go.
If the silver leaves them cold I
This city of all tax I ease
For three years ! We decree It so !
From all huts there shall be tmoke."
Thus the Emperor Nintok spoke.
Sped three years, upon bis roof
The monarch paced again. Aloof
His Empress hung, ill-pleased to see
The snows drip through her gallery,
The gates agape with cracks, and gray,
For wear and weather: "Consort, say
If so the Emperor of Japan
Should lodge, like some rile peasant man,
Whose thatch leaks for load of strawf"
"Princes august, what recks s gloss,"
Nlntok replied, "in gate or wall,
When far and wide, those chimneys all
Fling their blue house-flags to the sky,
Where the gods count them ! Thou and I
Take part In all the poor folk's health
The people's weal make princes' wealth I"
An Ton Led by the Vote?
Rcshvillk, Nib., March 21, '03.
Edttob Aixukci: The man, the
woman, or the community whose
opinions, religions, political, or other
wise, axe received from some boss,
leader or demoirotrue In the manner
resembling that In which newly hatched
vnnnir birds receive their food, without
any thought or consideration of their
own. belong to that class of whom it
has come to be a common saving,
Thev are led bv the nose."
Now It is one of the most ordinary
occurrences to run across men of this
class, and the proof of the fact is to be
seen at every election.
Hen who are "led by the nose" are
ore likely to vote against than for
tMtr own and their family's Interest

their faith to, and fealty to reform
dootrlMS) aa taught by all true advo
cate, three hundred and sixty-fcwtr
days in the year, they ww oa tae sixty
fifth day stultify It all by consenting to
let some old party boss or tool bad
them by the nose to tha polls, when for
some weak, miserably, mean, corrupt,
envious or trifling consideration they
will cast a Buicidalvote.
They exactly illustrate the imbecility
of the fools in the fable.who were hired
by their own enemies to bore holes in
the bottom of the boat in which they
with others were sailing.
There is a radical difference between
nose and knows. A man sometimes nose
a great deal and yet knows very little.
And accordingly there is a great differ
ence between a man who is led by the
nose and one who Is lead by the knows;
and though there may be little or no 1
difference in the dimensions of their
nasal protuberances a wide diversity
will be oonsplcious In their actions on
election day. The former will dis
tinguish himself as a dupe in the ser
vice of the old Darties. while the latter
may be safely counted on to help do-up
the old parties. The first is a man of
cents, the other a man of sense.
Alike as to the polls, yet unlike as
the poles. OnemayAarea hobby, the
other is a hobby. The "led by the nose"
man is likely to be tight at election and
the tighter he gets the looser he be
comes, and becomes yet more the loser.
But the man who goes knowsing around
on election day looking after the inter
ests of the people's party led by his
knows, is commended as an example
worthy to be followed in next election
by those who have on suoh occasions
formerly permitted their political
enemies to lead them by the nose.
The conduct of the man who is led by
the nose is frequently disgusting to the
man who is led by the knows, and the
man who is being habitually led by the
nose is liable to suffer a great deal from
an unnatural use and expansion of his
nose and a corresponding contraction
of his knows.
And to him who is led by the nose it
is suggested that he who attempts it
knows that to be constantly led by the
nose always results in more or leas
damage to both the nose and the
And no matter how deficient one may
be in quantity of nose every sensible
person knows that to be always led by
the nose will not only increase the
nose but will positively lessen the
And it is also here remarked that
even in painful scarcity of no?e it is of
infinitely more consequence to en

The Mortgage Business Again,
Hodgeville, Neb., Mar. 26, '62.
Mb. Ewtobi Having ffead an article
in an Omaha daily paper lately offering
the reward of "A consciousness of do
ing great good to our noble state," to
those who would seek out and
announce the number of cancellations
Of mortgages during the past year, I
thought as business was a little slack I
would try and secure the prise myself.
My first search was made in a county
where I had been acquainted for 19
Tears. There were a number of farm
ers living near the county seat, one of
the most flourishing dues In the state.
whom I knew had contracted debts
twelve to fifteen Tears ago to procure
necessary machinery to conduct their
work In the most approved methods.
mad to purchase live stock for their
, I knew that these men were all intel
ligent, industrious, and economical,
and that they had produced immense
crops, and further that they had not en
tered into any spoliations to hazard
their earning Cy their failures. In fact
these very men were held np to my
attention two years ago by a resident
banker of said city to illustrate the fal
sity of the alliance slander, that "farm
ing does not pay in Nebraska."
1 therefore directed my attention to
that neighborhood with the assurance
in mv mind that if anvbodv had can
celled their farm mortgages these
ould be the men. I was not entirely
disappointed. Although all these farm
ers bad mortgaged their farms (or one
reason or another I found the most of
their mortgages were cancelled, and
those which were not I had every
assurance would be cancelled very soon
probably within another year.
It mav be interesting to some of your
readers. Mr. Editor, to give a short his
tory of bow this result was effected in a
number of instances, and lest the
modesty of these good men should be
offended I will describe them under
Mr. A. cams to the state from the
east with wife and family of small
children, and about 93.000 worth of
property. He took a homestead and
timber claim of 160 acres each and
enough railroad land adjoining to make
up 0(H) acres of land, all nt lor the plow
and fertile soil. I was well acquainted
with him for he was a distant relative of
the Hodge family, and I was frequently
at his honse. He soon put about 400
acres of his land under cultivation, and
although rumor said that
he trusted his field work a
little too much to his hired man, he
managed to raise large crops and always
seemed to get as high a price for all the
farm products as any of his neighbors.
Me passea lor a fainy industrious man.
in fact when 1 was at bis place (I
worked for him awhile) be aad his wife
seemed to be buy from 5 o'clock in the
morning to 10 at night. He seemed to
get along woll for about 8 years and I
believe was nearly out of debt, when by
continued visitation of rrovldonce
not drouth) his crops were cut off
three years in succession, his hogs died
with cholera, and his teams with the
glanders, and it became necessary to
spread on tho mortgage so thick (the
Omaha See's evidence of prosperity)
that he despaired, as he afterwards told
me himself, of ever being able to cancel
It. But Providence again smiled upon
his efforts and after raising immense
oi ops for the two succeeding years he
found an opportunity to sell his farm
for enough to pay his debts, which be
did, and so cancelled his mortgage, and
i was toia ne naa just enough leit to
take him to a distant home Where his
wife and children are trying by bard
work to retrieve their fortunes, as he,

active farm work.
Farmer B. came to the state about the
same time as Mr. A., and about a year
ago managed to sell his farm for
enough to take him across the western
mountains with about half as much
property as he brought to the state
with him. His mortgage was cancelled.
Farmer C. eamat4fc Hate about 19
years wrr -..J- n undconslderabls
peitiunajraioney left nis wife
the deaS.'r relative. He improved
place well, bat his health tailed from
overwork and he sold his farm for
enough to cancel the mortgage and
have a little left, enough to eke out a
living with the help of a pension which
ne reoeivea as a soiaier in tne war.
Farmer D. came to the state about the
same time ana a few weeks before I
visited the neighborhood last, made a
forced sale of his farm, to prevent fore
closure, for money to cancel his farm
mortgage, but not quite enough to pay
farmers . and F. had heavy mort
gages yet on their farms, but I was
assured by their creditors that their
mortgages would be cancelled bv fore
closurewithin a year unless thev
managed to pay something more than
the interest. In fact, they said hard
times were coming for the farmers and
money they must have, or the land.
Some Hew Ideas on the Money Question.
Lucas, Russell Co, Kansas, )
March 15. im. (
Eoiroa or the Farmers' Aluaxck:
I am here near the center of the state
of Kansas where the "calamity howl
era" have not yet returned to their first
love. Tbey still howl. The big crops
of but summer have mostly gone to

crops for a living are in about the fix

and what has I? Nothin. I tells you
leners aar is somcin wrong.
How will we right the wrong Work!
Not work in mother earth all the time,
but work in our brother's ears and with
our brains. Capital is at work day and
night. There is nothing so low it will
not reach to for help.
A few days ago I picked a letter oat
of the waste basket of the grand army
lodge here; it was from a U. S. con
gressman of Ohio, asking the lodge to
pass resolutions, etc., against free coin
age of silver, to Instruct our congress
man to vote against free coinage, etc.
His argument was very strong but not
convincing. Only additional proof that
the gold men are at work.
I nave been a farmer since sixty-five,
have paid thousands of dollars for the
use of money but have quit. 1 have
given up the borrowed money (but had
to sell the farm Xo do it). I am now by
profession a "calamity bowler," and
"government pauper." I can no longer
follow the plow so I look back over a
misspent life without being called
lazy, and perhaps show others how to
get out of the ruts.
The great desire is money, the great
est need of the poor is money. All
understand this. All are calling for
"more money." Wall Street wants
more money. Some say they want less
money, if so why do they not take leu
interest? More money all want, and
the great majority need more. Then
bow shall we get It? From the govern
ment; no other power can furnish it; ,
but how will the government put it in I
the hands of those who most need it?

A Warning Against Fusion.
Morgantown, Ky., March 21, 1892.
Editor Alliance: The movement
for reform, financial relief and indus
trial emancipation is now well on its
feet and success is in plain view. We
cannot be crushed by the plutocracy
We have survived their taunts and mis
representations. We have now before
us the same enemy and are surrounded
with the same dangers which made
shipwreck of the greenback party.'
That enemy and that danger is fusion.
I notice in the leading papers of the
day that the committee of tne people's
party in Kansas and the democratic
committee have agreed or will agree
upon a fusion ticket by which the
offices are to be divided. The details
are unimportant for of oourse tho demo
crats have all to gain and nothing to
lose, but that is of no conseqnenee.
Fusion proves the truth of the charge
constantly made by the republicans,
viz: That the people's party was an
adjunct or tail to the democratic kite.
Fusion also proves that we are what
has been charged, anything to get an
office. It has been suggested that there
would be ' fusion in North Carolina
with tne republicans. If that occurs it
will simply brand us as political pirates
preying on all parties where there is a
prospect of public plander. I deem it
useless to argue against fusion.
It consigned the greenback
permanent and ignominious grave. It

leaders will commit so great a criuit!
against the people as to tolerate fusion.
Kansas is the bright and morning star
of pending effort for reform and relief.
If our leaders tolerate fusion we will
everywhere be justly held responsible
therefor, and bur doom will be sealed
and this great reform, which has been
set on foot at so much cost and sacrifice
will go down in darkness, and if U does
go down my notion is that the doom of
tne industrial classes will be sealed.
Never again can reformers be stimulat
ed to make useless sacrifices.
Let no reformer tolerate fusion,

Increase of Rural Renters.
Poor men are being crowded out of
Illinois. The independent farmer is
every year finding his pathway nar
rower, his hill more steep, his load
more' heavy. The renter and the
hired man are taking the place of a
free population. Thirty families last
week left a single neighborhood in
McLean county because since 1888
land values have Increased 40 per cent
all about thera. Increased taxation
follows this rise in valuation, and
farming which yields oaly a modest
profit at best will not keep pace
with the added burden. Those whose
farms are unincumbered can do better
with their capital in newer states,
An inquiry develops that tho buyers
are investors, not farmers. Home
after home has fallen into the hands
of capitalists who require a cash
rental too hopelessly high to admit of
m margin of profit to tha husbandman,
and on terms so severe that surrender
means loss. Cass county. Livingston,
Logan and McLean are alike affected.
It is estimated that S, 000 persons will
this year leave Central Illinois for the
cheaper lands of the West They are
men who can ill be spared. Reports
may make the state seem richer, but
the man who stands oa the land that
he owns is worth wore than a world of
