distruction if he could find enough
votes to elect him.
W. J. Bryan for President and
J. H. McLean, of the Ciociuuatti
Enquirer for Y'ice, is ibe latest from
the democratic wig-wum.
Christian Science healing is cut
ing a wide swath now days. It is bav
t ng its boom, but like the itch, most
people will get well of it io time.
The Democratic party has got so
rotten that men of known principle
are leaving it. J. Sterling Morton
has quit them cold and started a
party of his own.
Nebraska is getting to be a very
wet country and fears are entertained
that the essence of populisim is be
ing too badly mixed with water to
survive another campaign.
YV. J. Bryan says it takes as much
courage to fight the trusts as it did
to climb San Juan Hill, perhaps, but
W. J. cboses to fight where be can
run away. There is'nt so much danger
to his wind.
Colorado will send a gold girl to
the Paris exposition next year worth
more than a million dollars. She
will sail it the new woman or the
shibboleth of YYr. J. Bryan.
The Trust Octopus is the devil fish
that the democrats have chosen for
their emblem in 1900. But it is the
same fish that has characterized their
party ever since John. C. CalbouD
When it comes to Chanties the
YVorld Herald is strictly in it. Cy
clone, drouths and pestilence awakes
its philanthropic spirit and it calls
for contributions. It is now gather

party over its coming bail storm of
Colonel YVatterson of the Louis
ville Courier Journal, says all politi
cians look alike to him since the
Democrats held their convention in
his city. He is thoroughly disgusted
with the antics of his party but has
not quite mustered courage enough to
quit the rotten old ship of treason.
VS’e will soon be expected to hold
a county convention to select candi
dates to otTer themselves up as a
sacrifice upon the altar of Sherman
county politics, and yet no one has
even been heard to remark of his
fitness therefor. Don't all speak at

The old time Alliance men and
populists of the western part of the
gtate congregated in Kearney last
Friday, to reorganize the populist
party on the basis of their first prin
ciples, which have been lost sight of
since fusion gobbled them up. The
document wbieb they accepted as
their articles of faith for political
work iu the state is ulear cut, hon
est and straight forward and with
out a doubt was inspired from honest
motives It sets forth the facts at
the past few years experience has
demonstrated, aud if reformers are
preaching their doctrine from princi
ple they should not hesitate to ac
cept it. They give it out fiat that
there is but ooe “reform paper” in
the state that has stuck by the origi
nal principles,(which we think was
our Times Independent) but have all
gone over to the most corrupt gang
of state thieves that ever disgraced
a coinonwealtli. They back up their
principles with convincing evidence,
and honest men of all parties can
but say atneu to what they have said.
Now let us wait, watch and listen,
and see which populist papers dare
give publicity to these potent facts
as promulgatbd by tha party they
claim to represent. Keep your eye
open populists, its worth reading!
But we fear you will be compelled
to full back on a reliable Republican
paper for your ioformation if you
ever see it.

warmer welcome home than Nebras
ka. Sherman county had two repre
sentatives in the Philippines sod two
in Cuba. The two from Cuba are
already home and the two from the
other side of the world are on their
way, and no Mauser bullet has left
a scratch upon them. Our boys
fought well and deserve a token of
our appreciation. Let us give a cel
ebration in their honor this fall. Let
us set apart a day at the county fair
dedicated to their honor and give
them such a reception as is befit
ting American citizens who go forth
to carry the emblem of freedom to
all mankind. They fought in the
cause of humanity, they conquered
through justice and right, and though
the Tagal does not yet recognize
ibe great blessing be will receive,
from the fact that no other nation
will dare to again seek to make
slaves of them as long as Old Olory
waves over them. Let us, with a
full heart and open arms, welcome
them home, and for that purpose, let
the people of the county assemble on
a certain day at the county seat to
make their welcome home complete.
For a business man to say to an
advertising solicitor: “Ob! no.
It's to dull to advertise now. Wait
till times pick up a little," is equiv

THEIR FIRST HORSE CAR.
Th* People Were So D*llfkt«4 1%lt
They Hole All Dap.
“I: made the survey for the street car
lines'in the City of Mexico," said the
cifil engineer, “and when we got the
track* down and the cars running we
had a laughable tima Young men of
the first families not only ventured to
act as drivers and conductors, but in
sisted on taking those places without
wages. The thing was like a new toy
to children. People paid fare or withheld
it, Just as they saw fit, and some would
ride around for half a day. The Yankee
superintendent of the lines was in a
sweat all the time, but it was kicking
against a stone wall.
“The tracks were single ones, with
switches here and there for the cars to
pass, but such little things didn’t
bother the drivers. Borne of them would
start the mules on a dead run and go
clear to the end of the line, and others
would pull out on a switch and go to
sleep or indulge in,games with the pas
sengers. I guess it was two months be
fore the drivers consented to give up
their siesta hours. At 12 o'clock pre
cisely thevnules were brought to a bait,
no matter where the car was, and the
driver would walk off to eat, sleep and
smoke and be gone two hours. No Mex

DOWN EAST CURIOSITY.
On* Iuataae* la Which It Wa* Not
It takes a down east naan to ask ques
tions, but once in awhile one of them
finds bis match. Jonathan overtook a
gentleman who was traveling on horse
back, notwithstanding the fact that he
had lost one leg. His cariosity was
awakened, as he rode alongside of him,
to know how he chanced to meet with
such a misfortune
“Been in the army, I guess?” was
the anxious inquiry.
“Never was in the army in my life,’
the travaler returned.
“Fit a duel, p’haps?”
“Never fought a duel, sir.”
“Horse throwed you off, I guess, or
something of that sort?”
“No, sir, nothing of the kind.”
Jonathan tried various dodges, but
all to no effect At last, almost put of
patience, he determined on a direct in
quiry as to the nature of the accident
by which the gentleman had come to
lose bis leg.
“I will tell you, ” said the traveler,
“on condition that you will piomise
not to ask me another question.”
“Agreed, agreed!” exclaimed the
eager listener joyfully.
“Well, sir,” remarked the gentle
man, “it was bit offl”
“Bit off!” cried Jonathan. “Waal, I
declare; I'd just like to know, powerful
W6ll, what on arth bit it offl”—Chris
tian Endeavor World.
A Famish** Cat’s Prudearc.
At Osage City Mrs. C. .A. Stodard
was cleaning up her garret when by
some means the family cat got into an
old trunk filled with clothing and was
shut in tight and fast. Just 20 days
later Mrs. £tcdard was in the garret
again and heard the cat’s feeble cry
from the trunk. When the lid was lift
ed, the cat had just strength enough to
climb out. It had torn the clothing in
the trunk all to pieces in its clawing
and had gnawed the sides nearly
through in several places. But perhaps
the most singular circumstance was
found in the manner in which the cat
took care of itself after securing liberty.
Mrs. Stodard set before it a big dish of
mi’k and a big dish of water. It would
lap a little of each and then He down
for a few minutes, when again it would
partake sparingly of the milk and wa
ter, and this proceding it continued
through the whole afternoon. If that
cat had been a human, doubtless it
would have swallowed all that was
placed before it at one gulp.—Kansas
