outrages, cx Uncle Sam will be oblibed to
.chastise that nation and from the pres
ent indications the latter course will
have to be pursued. Should a war be de
clared the probabilities are tliat England
will take a'haad and in that case almost
very civilized nation would be drawn
into the controversy. It is to be hoed
that the matter can be arranged by di
plomacy and the shedding of blood avert

nation to be compelled to resort to, for
with the improved weapons the loss of
life would certainly by appalling.
.'Ojebfaska on Wheels,1 the great ad
vrtising train wlicb has been making
a tour of the east has returned home and
those who had charge of the matter are
joud it) their praise of the plan. The
train was royally received at every stop
ping place and crowds thronged the cars
as long as they remained standing and in
.-some instances it was hard work to clear
).he ears, after the train bad started. It
was a yecitabjo triumphal march, and it
will be certain to attract new people and
mew capital to Nebraska. It is a great
"coaxing"' scheme and it is more than
likely that a similar train will be run
through the east next year and if so

Akbawrd to Hate it Ikwi,
we uo not as a rule believe in fsury
ing a political controversy akug after
election, but there are tunes hen it ap
pears necessary. About ten days before
election S. I. Meseraull, of the Crawford
Buonwrattg, paid a visit to Harrison. H
was piloted around by E. D. Satterlee
and paid a visit to tlie court house is
company wun mat individual, going
into tlie office of the county clerk and on
request, iney were luitusJiea trie commis
sioner's record and the claim register.
Armed with information obtained there
the Boomerang man goes to CottonwtVxi
precinct to take a band in the polities, of
Sioux county and there he uiade state
ments which he knew had no foundation
in fact, and these statements were shown
up in their true light by C. E. Holmes,
who was present at tlie meeting. Meser
aull was not satisfied with that effort so
he goes home and gets out his paper and
devotes the greater portion of a column.
of his space to an attack on the oflioial;
of Sioux county, under the headiuir
'The Mud Ring at Harrison." In this he
stated that lie "visited the several conn
ty offices and found them all closed and
locked except the county judge's office.
The fact was he was not in the office of
the county jndge w hile he was in Harri
sou, and it is evident that the gentleman
from Crawford could not tell one county
office from another, and his statements
show that he knows just as little about
finances. He says that on June 30th
there was over $4,000 in the county
treasury. The statement of the treasur
er shows that on July 1st there was the
following amounts in the county treas

That is all tlie county funds there are
and that makes a total of f.SOT.79, which
is quite a sura less than the Biximeraiig
That is a sample of his statements and
he accuses the county treasurer of running
a money making scheme and others of
irregularities, but the crowning net in
the farce of Meseraull and his Boomerang
was that he knew his statements would
not bear inspection, and so did not send a
copy or that issue to The Journal,
neither did he send a conv to Countv
.'lerk Liudeman who is a regular sub
scriber to the Boovierang and that issue
of the paper presided over by Mr. Meser
aull also failed to reach John F. Cook
who is also a regular subscriber. We
have heard of editors who would get
ashamed of what thev put in the col-
mns of their paper about certain papers
or people and would fail to send them a
copy, but this is the first time it has
ever occurred to our personal knowledge,
We hope the editor of the Boomerang
got a lot of satisfaction out of the result
of his work in the recent election.
For some time a hitler newspaper fight
has been going on 'between the Lu.sk
Herald and the Doug Libs Budget, which
culminated in the arrest of J. E. and
Reece Mayes, who were running the Her
ald, on complaint of M. C. Barrow, edi
tor of the Budget, on the charge of crim
inal libel. At the preliminary hearing
Reece Mayes was discharged, and J. E.
Mayes placed under bonds to appear at
the next term of court. Some people
w ho preside over the columns of a news
paper think it cute to lie and misrepre
sent, but as a rule they soon get to the
-end of their string. Thsre is a limit
which in notsife even for a newspaper to
pass, and some good leg il medicine is
"the most effective way to demonstrate
"A Yard of Roses."
One of toe popular paintings at the
New York Academy of Design was a
yard-long panel of Roses. A crowd waa
always before it. One art critic ex
claimed, "Such a bit of nature should be
long to all the people, it is too beautiful
for one man to hide away."
The Youth Companion, of Boston,
sei7.ea the idea and spent twenty thou
sand dollars to reproduce tlie painting,
The result has been a triumph of artistic
delicacy and color.
Tlie Companum makes an Autumn
gift of this copy of the painting to each
of its live hundred thousand subscribers.

There was never a more favorable
me than the present to invite and in

Nebraska, for the reason that the rental

not leave the workers a good subsistence,

Tlie price of corn prevailing during a
portion of this year has advanced the
selling price of land in Illinois from ten
twenty dollars per acre, and rents
have more than corresnondine-lv ad
vanned. Formerly and until very lately
the division of rental in kind gave the
owner of the land two-fifths of the crop
and the renter of tenant three-fifths, the
latter furnishing seed, teams and tools
and labor performed in production.
Latterly the division has been half to
each in numerous cases, in some cases
the tenant paying one dollar per acre in
addition to the half of the crop.
len years ago cash rental was from
two to three dollars per acre. Last year
it reached five dollars, and this year six
dollars an acre has been paid. From this
you will observe that the advance in
land bears small proportion to the ad
vance of rent.
