Swing inward, O gates of the future!
Swing ontward, ye gates of the past,
For the soul of the people is moving,
And rising from slumber at last;
The black forms of night are retreating,
The white peaks have signaled the day,
And freedom her long roll is beating
And calling her sons to the fray.
Swing Inward, O gates! till the morning
Shall pal at the brown mountains in gold,
Till thp life and the lore In the new time
Shall conquer the hate of the Old ;
Let the face and that hand of the Master
No onger be hidden from view,
or the land he prepared for the many,
Be trampled and robbed by the few.
The oil tells the same fruitful story,
The seasons their bounties display,
And the flowers lift their faces in glory
To catch the warm kisses of day;
While our fellows are treated ilke cattle
That are muzzled when treading the corn,
And millions sink down in life's battle,
With a sigh for the day they were born,
Swing inward, O gates of the future!
Swing outward, ye doors of the past, :
A giant is waking from slumber ;
And rending his fetters at last;
From the dust where tyrants found him,
TJnhonored and scorned and betrayed,
He shall rise in the sunlight around him,
And rule in the realm he has made. Ex.
Tn another column will be found Mr.
Geo. Steketee's advertisement of his

acquired a great reputation wherever
introduced, and as the disease prevails
to a considerable extent throughout
the western states, Mr. Steketee has
probably "struck it rich" for himself,
besides offering the means of curing all
such hogs as may need his remedy.

This measure does away with all nom

The promised public investigation
by the special house committee of the
charges' brought against Adjutant
General J. A. Wickham by James C.
Snell attracted a good sized audience
but proved to be a complete fizzle.
Representative Trigg gave it as his
Dpinion that as the committee had
been appointed only to ascertain the
number of cle As and their salaries in
the various state departments it
had no power to investigate the
charges. A motion to dismiss the case
was unanimously carried and the
whole burden of the investigation now
rests on Governor Stone. The general
opinion is that Snell has been too hasty
and will be unable to prove anything
incriminating against Wickham. The
investigation of the' office of the state
superintendent of schools by the spe
cial committee appointed for that pur
pose was postponed on account of the
absence from the city of Superintend
ent L. E. Wolfe.

For the Interest of Investors,
The great Corn Belt of Nebraska
and Kansas with the rapidly growing
cities Omaba and Liccoln is now the
chief center for investments. An ex
ceptionally advantageous opportunity
for investment has b en recently open
ed up by the Stapleton Land Co., of
Omaha, Nebraska. This company has
a subscribed capital of $100,000.00, of
which $100,000.00 is fully paid in.
This capital is invested in choice small
farms ih Nebraska and Kansas which
were bought at exceptionally low
figures during the depression of 1890.
They are now offering these properties
for sale at a slight advance in price and
we may safely say that the opportunity
for investment thus thrown open is
well worthy of being carefully con
sidered. The management of the
affairs of the company is in the hands
of experienced men. The officers are

Land Co. is one o' the strongest and
best managed companies in its special
