W. N. Koavh, a democrat, of Grand

J. .Sterling Morton, the Sage of Arbor
Lodge, has been selected as secretary of
agriculture under Cleveland. No man
could have been selected to succeed
Uncle Jerry Rusk who will fullil the
duties better or give more general satis
faction than Mr. Morton. ' He is a true
democrat and is certainly entitled to
recognition at the hands of the incoming
umber wagons with
tire not less than (1) three inches in width
inches in width for hauliug loads exceed
ing eight hundred pounds iu weight; (2)
three and one-half inches in width for
liauling louds exceeding twelve hundred
pounds in weight: (3) lour inches in
width for liauling loads exceeding six
teen hundred pounds in weight, shall re
ceive a reliate of one-fourth, one-third
and one-half respectively of his assessed
highway tax for each such year. Upon
making an affidavit showing that he has
complied with the provisions of this
sectiou during any such period he shall
be credited by the overseer of highways
of the road district in which he resides
with such rebate.
Once in operation such a law would
do a great work for the highways. The
road tax would naturally !jO made a lit
tle high, but the rebate could lie secured
so easily that few teamster-, would fail
to take advantage of it. The friends of
road reform must remember that the
country is not ready to go into a grand
scheme involving the expenditure of
hundreds of thousands of dollars in
every county. The people can 1 coaxed
into road improvement only by degrees.
Short pieces of good road out from busy
towns, the general spread of information
about the cost of bad roads, and little
advances like the widening of the tires,
must be secured first- It will require
patience and a great amount of hard
work to educate the people on this im
portant question. The beginning s must
be small, but even the small ones will
have a great influence in bringing about
the marked betterment which we hope
to see before the close the decade.
I th Slums of Xw York,
Ha wlio would see Mulberry S' -:xt in
the picturesque aspect it wears b. yond
any other point in these haunts of the
wretched, must approach it from Bayard
Street, the chosen home of Jewry, brist
ling with Hebrew signs, and vocal with
all strange tongues the Hebrew may
choose to make bis own, the strangest of
all being their own "Jedish,' the lingo
made up on principles the philologist
may not define, and used in printing as
well as speech.
Up to the moment iu which the corner
of Mulberry Street is reached one is in
Hebrew land; but, presto! there is a sud
den transformation. Southern Italy and
one of its market-places lies before one,
and, in spite of the fact that sordid tenement-houses
liue either side, the illusion
is complete. Saturday morning, above
all, is given the open-air market, in
which trucks and barrows of every des
cription line the side-walks and Gil the
narrow street Ash-barrels often serve
as counters from which extraordinary
commodities are dispensed. The Italian
scorns the house save when it rains,
choosing the street as persistently as the
Polish Jew avoids it; and now they make
a never-ending procession, lining every
available foot of walk and street.
What (to they sell? Tainted meat;
stale eggs bought by the pailful from
the marketman, who is glad to get rid of
them ou any terms, and bought here by
the spoonful for omelets made savory
with oil aud herbs. Here we find poul
try, blue witli age and skinny beyond be
lief; wilted vegetables; half-rotten or
moldy fruit; fish long parted from the
water; strange . weeds doing duty as
lads: all ottering their share toward
the unspeakable odor that rises to
Heaven, aud seems grateful to the nos
trils of the buyer. Stale bread abounds,
nor is it found in just such fashion at
any oilier point. The sacks containing
it are old malresses, at least thev are of
bed-ticking, and foul as such antecedents
would make them, and in them are
oaves of all sizes anil agos, sold weekly
by down-town bakers at so much a sack
ful. H is "not unwholesome," the
health officers say, only disgusting.

The musings of John H. Powers aud
Jav Burrows would be very interesting
if they could be given to the public.
These pioneer populists must reflect that
parties, like republics are capable of in
gratitude. They have toiled long and
faithfully in the political vineyard in
Nebraska, farming the soil and the trees
and the farmers ever since the first hour,
but behold a large, overgrown man
comes in at half past eleven o'clock and
before he has scarcely got his coat off
and jabbed his spade into the ground the
bosses rush up to him and clothe him
with a ready-made halo and bestow upon
him the price of six years labor in ad
vance. Those who entered the vineyard
early and brought their breakfast and
dinner in a tin pail must realize the
truth of the poet's remarks that some
must sow and others must reap, and like
wise that all is vanity and vexation of
spirit. Fremont T ritmne.
The election of Allen as senator will
temporarily enthuse the populist party,
but will not materially strengthen it.
The combine between the pops and dems
proves what has been said of the new-
party all along, that it is solely in thein
terests of democracy. Thousands of
former republicans saw through it last
fall and they returned in sufficient num
bers to give an average republican plu
rality in Nebraska of 19,000. Let the
(food work of uniting the two parties go
merrily on. Fremont Tribune.
If you are a parent and have a son who
is dear to yon, bring him up in such a
manner that he will never be a speech
maker. The most tiresome man in the
United States today is the one who is
always watching for an opportunity to
make a speech. The worst of it is that
the man who wants to make a speech is
never a good speaker. He generally has
a wheezy voice and yellow teeth, and in
sine ccses out of ten be says "eyether"
and "ny ether." So, if your boy devel
ops a weakness for speaking, lead him
out to the woodshed in the still, dreamy
gloaming and hit him. with two cords of

The Kansas war is practically ended
and the republicans hold the lort, repre
sentative hall. On the 15th the rpubli
cans went to the hall and
found the doors locked and immediately
proceeded to knock the locks loose will
hammers. The populists had locked the
doors, but had adjourned and happened
to be out yhen the republicans went in
or there would have been a clash. Tlie
populists on hearing of the action of the
republicans, notified Gov. Lewelling
who called out the militia and instructed
them to eject the republicans. Tlie repub
licans didn'tgo, however, but kept on with
their business. After five companies of
state militia under command of the gov
ernor and 1,000 deputy sheriffs, whose
business it was to see that the militia did
no violence, had paraded the streets and
made warlike demonstrations, the gov
ernor and the beseiged republicans made
overtures for peace and a truce was de
clared pending negotiations. The gov-
ernor proposed that if they would with
draw the criminal proceedings again t the
populist clerk and agree to let the popu
list house occupy its side of the building,
the double headed organization could
remain. The republicans rejected the
proposition and submitted another: that
the populist clerk should remain under
arrest, the republican clerk should also
remain ttoder arrest and the republicans
should retain, possession of the house,
pending the decision of the courts, but
that proposition didn't satisfy the gov
ernor. A compromise was made wherein the
republicans do not arrest the populist
cleric, but retain absolute possession of
the bail. The pops have the privilege
of meeting elsewhere and they have built
an addition to the oapitol to roost in.

During the period between the open
ing and the close of lake navigation last
year Buffalo handled 175,O2s,O0O bushels
of grain and 11,305,470 barrels of Hour,
exclusive of the receipts by rail. These
large figures afford some idea of the
magnitude of the commerce of the great
lakes. Nearly all of this grain is
shipped Ironi the western states and is
ta!;?n to the Atlantic coast by the Erie
canal and tlie railroads. There is no
need of iMgument to show the hiinort

canal in order that it may be maue an

A Woman's Wonderful Work.
Tokology: A book for Every Woman,
By Alice B. Stockliam, M. D. Illus
trated. Over 200,000 have been sold,
and it has been translated into many
languages. To have such a circulation
in the course of only five or six years, it
must be a good book, one desirable for
women to own and read. What is it?
It deals with tlie physical culture of
women, and is designed to alleviate and
largely prevent the ills of maternity. It
is said by one "to be to the body of a
woman what the Bible is to her soul."
The strong, kind face of the author on
the opening page prepares one to accept
her good words of counsel, which are
based on science, common sense, and
Christian principle. The book is believed
to be doing more for women than all
other books together. It teaches what
so very few are taught by their mothers,
and for want of which knowledge, an in
conceivable amount of suffering lias
been endured by the sex. It is one that
every married woman should possess.
Ve rejoice that a woman has been
raised up with the desire, ability and
courage to do this work for her suffering
sisters, and that it has been done with
so much delicacy, plainness aud success.

The presidential election being over, as
we before have said, it delights us to ob
serve that certain seu-eviueut trutns
keep on asserting themselves, just as
though an agitated majority had not,
voted that they were untruths. If in a
season of just or unjust anger against
Hie publishers of arithmetics, a majority
of persons of adult age should vote tliat
two and two do not make four, the
eternal verity that two and two do make
four would remain unshaken, and would
be recognized upon the first day of set
tlement with the grocer.
In like manner, although certain per
sons, protectionists at heart, but who
temporarily were irritated by the Home
stead strike, or by other industrial mis
haps, were mislead into voting with that
minority which really does believe that
"tariff is a tax, paid by the consumer of
goods," still the eternal truth that the
tariff is not a. tax paid by the consumer
of goods remains unshaken, and is recog
nized when the first purchase of tariff
bearing goods is made.
For example, liere is our old friend,
Tin-plate; this is the report of bis condi
tion on the second day of this month:
The Liverpool market, as cabled, is
unchanged and steadily dull, with prices
for American account at from 1 shilling
to 8 shillings less than for trade else
Now, why does the Welsh maker offer
his tin-plate at from 85 to 75 cents per
box reduction to a United States pur
chaser? Why does he not ask the same
price for a shipment to New York that
he would demand for a shipment to Cal
cutta, or 4(o Marseilles, or to Bio de Jan
eiro? Because in New. York his. Welsh
plate will come into competition with
American made plate. Te American
tariff forces him to lower bis price. It
creates competition by protecting a
weak industry. It increases production,
nod increase of production always works
decrease of price.
As we were myieg, ihe truths remain

and federal courts and U. B. Land office.
