A New Weapon of Defem.
Two Nerraska ed low wlrp ped iu one

adopt some means of st If difeme. It

The enraged subse riher wlio c-oulJ face a

a horse 1 lanlut, and under such circum

harmless. This thing of wh pping edit

The average editor is u m;M. inoffensive
sort of a chap, who deserves a better re
ward for Ills work than an extensive
sliifrgin modeled on the G thie plan.
Ilia labors are principally of an intellect

at a disadvantage when a big loafer with
a hand like a 1 ase burner sails into him,
and it is natural lliat he should be done

be paid by the association and he would
return with vii tory pirclud upon h's
banners, vindicating the dignity of the

hearts of those who make a prat tice of
whipping writers. This scheme is the
only feasible one, and although it is the

The courts have decided thnt suhscril)
ers who refuse to take papers from the
postolfice, or removing and leaving them
uncalled for, is prima facia, evidence of
intentional fraud, and may be dealt with
in the iriininal courts.
If any person orders his pner diwon
t'nui d, he must pay all arrearages, or
the piibbhhi r may cont nue to send it
until payment is made, and collect the
whole amount whether the paper is ta
ken from the office or not. There can be
no legal discontinuance until payment is
made in full.
A postmaster is required to give no
tice by b tt r (returning the pajier does
not answer the law) when a subscriber
does not take his paper out of the office,
and state the reason for its not. being ta
ken. Any neg!e t to do so makes the I
postmaster responsiHe for the payment.
The latest postal laws are such that
newt -paper publishers can have arrested j
for fraud any one who takes a paper and
refuses to pay for it. Under this law the
man who allows his subscription to run
for some t ine and then orders it discon
tinued, or ciders the postmask-r to mark
it "rt fust d," and to send a postal card
notifying the publishers, lays himself li
able to arrest and line, the same as for

We apoIngTie for m:slakes made in nil
former issues and say that they were
inexcusable, as all an editor h:n t do
is: To hunt news and clean the rollers
and set type and sweep the floor and pen
short items and fold the papers and write
the wrappers and make the paste and
mail the papers and talk to visitors and
distribute typo and carry water and saw
wood and read the proofs and correct the
mistakes aud hunt the shears to write
editorials and dodge the bills and dun
delinquents and take cussings from the
whole force and tell our subscribers that
we need money we say that we've no
business to make mistakes while attend
ing to these little matters and getting
our living on gopher tail soup flavored
w;th im ig;nat on, and wearing old shoes
and no collar, and a patch on our pants,
obliged to turn a smiling countenance to
the man who tells us our paper isn't
worth 51 any how and that he could
make a better one with his eyes shut.
An editor in this country does not
have to saw wood, but he carries coal,
makes paste, attends all the meetings,
reads a lot of trash to get a l.ttle news,
does job pr.nt ng, runs the hand press,
runs errands, sweeps out once a month,
makes out bills once a month and then
makes them out over again next month
and smiles sweetly on the man who has
threatened to kill him on sight. Then
there are some editors who "rush the
growkr," "deal," "buck the tiger," get
drunk, stay drunk and kt all of the be
fore mentioned duties go to thunder.

The chief of the Crows is named Long
Hair, from the fact of his having the
longest- hair of any man in the nation.
By correit measurement it- was found to
be ten feet and seven inches in length.
On ordinary occasions it is wound with a
broad leather strap and carried under his
arm, or within the folds of his robe. On
great occasions however, his pride is to
unfold it, oil it with Lear's grease and let
it drag behind him, spread
grass, black and shining as
wing. Pipe Of Peace.
In answer to the questions regarding
the night herd law, of several of our sub
scribers, we here give the law in full:
Compiled Statutes 1887, Chap. 2, Sec.
11 pg. 01.
"Xo cattle, horses, mules, swine or
sheep shall run at large during the night
time, between sun-set and sun-rise, in
the state ol iNehraska. and tne owner or
owners of any such animal shall be lia
ble in an action for damages done dur
ing such night time."
Mr. Nimrod I say, Mr. Editor, did
you know that I was out hunting yesterday?

"Well, I was, and I thought jou
might want to make a local notico of it,
so I came over to give you the particu
"1 id you kill anything?'
"Well 1 should say so. I made one of
the most remarkable shots on record;
killed two rabbits at one shot. Going to
mention it, ain't you?"
"certainly, Mr. Nimrod."
"Can't you make it a little conspicu
'Why, of course. I'll have both of
the rabbits you shot printed in double

"That'll do splendid. Thanks-aw

Henry Rodgers got home from the

I wonder if Justice Mason will get his
house painted this fall, I suppose he will
givt a big free range dance. Wonder if
he will invite his herd law friends to partake.
The Free Range Ball at the hall last
Thursday evening was a decided success
both in point of numbers and enthusiam.
Notwithstanding the preceeding cold day
and snow, a large crowd of the pleasure
seeking community gathered at an early
hour from far and near, and the dancing
began early. Messrs Galpin, Bartk't and
Galpin and Mrs, Murphy furnished the
music successfully and to the satisfac
tion of all. The Harrison cornet band
rendered several selections in the hall
before the regular routine of business
was taken up. Eight set danced at once,
having very litt e room for lookers-on,
though what was left was all taken. At
lt;30 supMr was served at both hotels,
over fifty persons partaking nt each
place. After super dancing was again
taken up and continued until a late no
early hour and all had had thair fill and
departed for their homes feeling that a
pleasant evening had been'spent.

in you court by calling me a criminal
and saying that I would he sent to the
penite.itlary by him; and all this in your
presence and court, and without one
word of remonstrance frdm you. On
the ct-ier hand, if I should dare to say
one w:rd you have teen ever ready with
your Shut up; set down or I'll fine you
for contempt of court." Heavens! what
conte-ipt! You further say in that ve
hicle -if slander and defamation; that if
any t.ie doubts the guilt of Mr. Walker
he is invited to call at the Judge's
office. The people of Sioux county will
in dui time find out who is guilty and
who fc-, not.
Now Judge I feel sorry for you. Hon
estiy , 1 innk you would tie a lairer man
if yon would drink less whiskey and beer
and .'-fc.bi-r up so that what little Lrains(?)
you have would hi able to clear up
and I -dp you to do something more near
ly rigid,. Yon must think that because
you plead guilty to duplicating your ac
count! against the county and swearing
twice to an account of f 3.25 that every
one else is in the same fix.
In reply to the article in the Repulili-
can headed "Facts and Figures," by L-
w. nryan, I will simply say that it is
laise. Mr. isryan ilul some work on a
tie contract for which he got his pay in
full f. nd not as he says only got his
l)! ji an old pair of boots and a couple
of Government blankets. At the time
Bryan was working lor me l had in my
employ from 20 to 40 men and here are
the names of a few who are still in Sioux
countv, and who will give testimony as
to the truth or falsity of the statement
made in the Republican.
( has. L. Tuhbs, John Mack, Joseph
Johnson, P. L. McCrea, Chas. Plimpton,
Leopold I eBuek, S. W. Kemp, Win.
Benway, Geo. E. Coak, Albert Rand,
Michael Ruffing, Jackson Kreisler, L). J.
Majors, Joseph Parsons, Wm. II. Hawn,
M. J. O'Connell, Wm. Schleier, Andrew
lahhnan, Michael Schonebaum, Wm.
Schonebaum and others.
If Mr. Bryan had fulfilled his contract
with me the same as the others above
mentioned he would then have had some
money coming to him, and he, like the
rest of those that worked for me, would
have been paid for every single tie he
made. But Mr. Bryan, instead of doing
his work as agreed, left the work and 1
had to pay John Mack and his men to
complete the job, for instead of making
ties he made a lot of culls that were re
jected by the company.
A few days before election Bryan stat
ed to Joseph Parsons that I owed him
f 100, but that if I would give him a cow
he would call it square and vote and do
all he could for me during election. I
have not bought any votes and am not
in the vote buying business.
Mr. Bryan himself is a good worker,
and I know, from the amount of work
done by himself, he should have made
more money, but he kept about him
from three to nine starved out loafers
all winter who cost him more than he
could possibly earn, and if Bryan had
kept account of his bills he wonld not
have made the statement he did, for 1
believe him to be truthful and honest.
