A Late Bluebird.
BT MIRIAM BUBD BUCK.
Come little bird with wings of blue.
Your wee house waited all the spring;
Bring to thb hearts so loyal, true,
The silver soDga yeu used to sing;
Our rural home has neod of you.
And memories that round you cling.
I loved you all my youthful days,
We shared the berries, black and Ted,
That ripenc d o'er the lofty ways
YTtoich thro the wooded pastures le
And then wo sang neath hawthorne sprays
That swung their censers overhead.
Old loves return at sight of yci,
Our childhood friends, so badly mies d,
The sweetest Junes lay young life knew
Sheltered your form of amethyst.
And with your tender tones renew,
Come, keep again the old-time tryst,
The amber grain is lying U w,
The July suns, the harvest rain
Have set the prairie pinks aglow;
Csuoe back and sing the low, sweet strain
You sang to us so long ago,
O come, before the warm moons wane.
To Whom It May Concern:
Believing in fair play, we enter
a vigorous protest against such mis
leading telegrams as appeared in the
Sunday Bee in regard to the Meikle
john i ally here last Saturday.
The Bee says: "During the after
noon a Meiklejohn club consisting of
over 200 members was formed and
headed by the Fullerton Cornet band,
marched down Main street, followed by
hundreds of citizens on foot and in car
riages. Hundreds of farmers availed
themselves of the opportunity."
We can truthfully say that the re
ception of Meiklejohn was a very quiet
affair and at no time during tho day
was there more than 150 republican
voters on Main street, and less than
that number listened to the speeches.
Farmers of this county are not hurrah
ing for the old boodle-supported parties
and do not approve of having a "rally"
forced upon them when they come to
town to trade. B.

Setting a Good Example
The secretary of the Ladies' Pioneer
Club of Kearney county sends us the
following copy of a letter sent to the
national committee. We would like to
publish more like it:
Kearney, July 2G, '92.
M. C. Rankin,
Treas. National Committee Peo
DEAR Sir: Find enclosed ten dollars
from the Ladie3' Club, "The Pioneer'
of Kearney county Nebraska. This
club is composed of the wives and
daughters of farmers. In this beauti
ful and productive state of Nebraska
the farm that is not owned by a mort
gage is an exception and not the rule.
That terrible mortgage like a bag of
sand is weighing us to the earth. We
have worked hard, but the mortgage
has worked harder. The people are
beset with debt on every hand without
hope except in God and the people's
party. We realize tne great expense
of a compaign and that ten dollars is
but a drop in the ocean. We have or
ganized for the compaign and intend to
go out and spread the gospel, not of
rP.ipp. and p-nnd will to the Gould's and
) Carnegie's, but justice to the disin-
herited people. If the men will not
imitate the Savior in upsetting the
tables of the money changers, the
women will have to do it themselves.
There is no place so dear to a woman
as ' home, sweet home." Then let
women organize for home, for life, and
for liberty. Respectfully,
Mrs. Julia Spink,
Pres. Pioneer Club.
Boyd County Heard From.
Alford, Boyd Co., Neb., July 27.
Lecturer S. C. Fairchild made Boyd
county a visit and spoke six times. He
is a good speaker and a hard hitter;
and he does best when the enemy try
to annoy him. Some of the meetings
were not generally known and attend
ance was light. The best meeting was
at Butte City in the republican strong
hold. The townsmen heard something
new to them. But they took it well,
and are ready to hear more.
Messrs. Fricdland and Cronk will
visit tho county the first week in
August. N. H. B.
Buffalo OouEty Independents-
The independents of Buffalo coun!y
held their convention at Kearney, July
2G. Every precinct was represented.
John Stebbins and A. J. Scott were
nominated for representatives; Stanley
Thompson for county attorney. Lymon
Cary was made chairman and S. S.
Smith secretary of the county com
mittee. The delegation was
mostly for Van Wyck for
Mr. Stebbins was a member of the
last legislature and made a good record.
Mr. Scott has been president of the
county alliance and is a very strong
Cass County Alliance-
The Cass county Alliance had a very
harmonious and successful meeting at
Wabash, July 23rd.
Resolutions were adopted (1) de
nouncing the Pinkerton's as a lawless
organization of murderers; (2) request
ing our representatives in congre-s to
enact laws to abolish Pinkertonism.
The meeting then adjourned to the
park where a large crowd had assem
bled. Philip Lynch of Alvo made a
short and spirited address, followed by
C. Lemasters, of Elmwood. Then Mrs.
W. R. Keefer spoke addressing the
ladies especially in a very instructive
Hon. W. F. Wright was the princi
pal speaker. He held the close atten
tion of the crowd for two hours.
Our next meeting wiU be held at

Believing that it will interest your
readers, I will inform you of politics in
t'te southwest corner of the United
States. Both of the old parties are
greatly worked up at the turn things
are taking here. A fair sample of the
move is this: In this place last Friday
there was no people's party club. A
few citizens of this city decided to hold
a meeting of voters for Friday evening
to see what could be done. About
twelve met at the hall and we drew up
a form of the principles of the people's
party and asked those present who
would support it to sign. They signed
it. almost to a man. We appointed a
committee to get signatures and ad
journed to meet Monday evening. Now
we are organized and have elected
delegates to the county convention to
to be held Wednesday. At our la3t
election there were fifty-four votes
cast in this city and we have thirty-six
members in our club. This will give
you an idea of how tho political wind
If we were able to get a few gcod
speakers in the field we could carry
this county beyond doubt. This county
is like a prairie of dried grass all ready
to burn, if lit in a few places, and it is
lit in this city. The killing of the silver
bill is the straw that broke my back
and may others also.
Yours for justico to all, partiality to
none. A. D. STEWART.
