No tidings from the republican
senatorial committee yet.
What if the Times did see “our”
Joe posting up bills. He’ll be elect
farmers arc most two busy to
talk politics just now, but from what
is beard the republican nominees
have nothing to tear from the vote
even in Sherman county. There are
many here-to fore populists who are
straight out for the republican ticket.
‘•Our foe”, Joe Pedler, ibe wid
dow’s friend, the republican nom
iuee for county attorney, and in
short the utan who is causing the
Times man so much concern, ie> the
man that is going to he elected this
fail, and don't you forget it.
Alvin Clark, the republican nom
inee for representative is making a
splendid canvass. He has the kind- j
est regard fur his opponant and only
differs with him in a political sense.
Mr. Clark is well educated and un :
interesting conversationalist. He
^is winning votes every day.
The Times got a little funny last:
week and garbled an article which
we printed away back in 1893 and
contrasted it with what we have to j
say now, hut the comparison was
mild to that which we made of bis
productions when ho turned a com
plete handspring and landed in the ;
middle of the pou-o-cratic camp.
At that time, in one issue of the
Times he, as a good republican,
denoumced the populist party and
spoke of the populist candidates
in a most scathing manner and
in the very next issue he a3 good
as call them angles just sprouting
tittle wings. Come over and have
a peanut, Ed.
On account of being hway to the
state fair last week there were sev
eral things wo did not mention and
one of them was the call we received
from Chas. lteidel, who brought
us a sample of what is known as
^ wild rye. This plant, according to
medical science, is very poison
ous, and if stock is allowed to
eat of b, disease will follow. It
produces an incurable disease which
invariably results in lingering sick
ness and death. Mr. Reidel, being
a man of a scientific turn of mind,
his, through his farm journal, the
Twenliih Century Farmer, been
closely observing the bnlitins issued
by the Nebraska Experiment Station
an finds that the plant referred to
is as stated, of a disease breading
character. All farmers and stock
raisers should study these subjects
well. They should write to the Ex
periment Station for these bnlitins
or better jet, lake a good farm
journal in which these bnlitins
are published. The wild rye, if
examined e! >s»dy, has a long black
kearncl, in which the death dealing
substance is said to bo located. Ex
actly this sumo plant with many
others of a poisonous character was
^~on exhibition at the Station s head
quarters on the fair ground.
At Lis residence, at Uound Grove
I'usler county, Nebraska, on tbe
uigbt of September 7, James Bing
bam, one of tbe oldest settlers of
Custer county passed into tbe great
hereafter. Last Sunday was des
tined to be bis last day upon earth,
it found him at bis borne amoDg
bis family. But while tbe day was
yet youug, be began to sulfur from a
return of bis old trouble, heart fail
ure. The disturbance in his breast
did not become alarming for seyerul
hours after its return. It seemed to
be destined to run only its usual
course and then to probably sub
side for some days. But alas tbe
seciets of tbe future are deeply bid
den. Tbe day bad rolled by and
midnight was approaching. Some
members of tbe family bad retired
for the night, when the patient turn
ed '.o bis wife aud said “I an going
to die.” These words were bis last.
Their echo bad not ceased in tbe
room before the dew of death was
settling upon bis brow. Not one
struggle or quiver marked the end.
Tbe great message bad been deliver
ed in sileuce and was obeyed with
the promptness of a soldier to our
supreme in command.
Tbe dread malady, heart failure,
bad for years been threatening the
exbistance of tbe bead of tbe
Bingham bouse. It bad caused long
mouths of excrusiating, but patient
suffering. Week after week bis life
bad been despared of in the past,
but tbe strong iron will of tbe
man asserted itself, and each time
lie tallied and recovered his strength.
He bad indeed of late been con
grutulating himself on bis perrni
nnnt recovery. Ho was looking for
ward to a prosperous and happy
future. But subsequent events
prove that be reckoned without bis
Mr. Bingham, with Ins young fam
ily were among the first settlers of
Custer county. They entered a pre
emption at Round Grove in June,
187 7. There were very few settlers
in the county at that time. No rail
roads, no wagon roads, bridges,
churches or schools. It required
rugged ami brave men to face the
privations and hardships of this
frontier in those days. The dark
days which so often came never
daunted him. He fought on year
after year with that confidence which
has inspired men to rear cities and
build empires in the west. Grand
empire builders they were, the pio
neers who conquered the “desert.”
But this one has gone to bis last re
ward. He was a loving Lusband,
a kind father and one of the truest
of friends. Honest and upright in
all his dealings He was a strong
man in his neighborhood, liked and
respected by all. He leaves behind
him a wife ODe daughter and two
sons to mourn his loss^aud take up
the work which he has left.
At his beautiful home in the Mud
dy Valley can be found a farm of a
section of land which testifies more
eloquently than words, the judge
ment of the man who staked it out
more than a quarter of a century
ago. It is indeed the beauty spot
of all Nebraska.
The Rev. Mr. Wood, minister of
the Baptist church at Mason City
conducted the funeral service. An
imposing prosession of his friends
bore the remains tenderly to his

One of the most profitable products
of Bulgaria Is the oil or attar of
i roses, which amounts to more than
| 11,000,000 annually. The town of

battle of the Tui ko-Russlan war, on
the 7th of July, 1877. Is the center of
the rose gardens.
H. M . Mathew has called our at
! tention to a letter which he received
' from Mr. Geislheardt the attorney
for the Logan and Loup City town
ship boud holders, in which the writ
er says that he had not employed Mr.
Mathew as attorney. But he further
wrote that the bonds must be paid,
that the people of these townships
voted aud issued these bonds and
sold them to innocent purchasers,
and that they might as well pay up
at-d lock pleasant about it. Mr,
G eistboardt infers that it was evi
deotfrem the start that such would
bo the inevitable result of the con
test. Why, of coarse it was,
and most anyone with a child's intel
ligence might have known it. Per
haps it was the lack of this intelli
gence that caused Mr Geistbeardt
to conclude that Mr. Mathew’ serv
ices was do longer ueeded. At any
rate it must have been the lack
of something that caused Mr.
Mathew to advise the township
boards that they could defeat the
bonds, by putting up f tf>0 tetain
er foes and severul hundred dollars
costs, agregaling nearly ft* 00.00
of which it cost these two townships
to apply his remedy.
DOCTORS IN MADAGASCAR.
French UatabllRhlng Free Itlapenaarj
Service Throng boat Iilkud.
The French have just begun to car
ry out a great work of humanity in
Madagascar. Medical missionaries
were until recently the only doctors
in the island. The Governor General
several years ago established a school
of medicine and a hospital at the cap
ital. The medical school has already
turned out fifteen native physicians
who have proved themselves compe
tent to practice medicine. With his
white medical staff and the intelligent
natives who are being trained to
practice medicine, the Governor Gen
eral now expects widely to extend the
service. He has therefore decreed
that all branches of the medical ser
vice in the island shall be consoli
dated in one organization and that
hospitals similar to that in Antana
narivo, where 125 sick persons may be
accommodated at one time and where
free medical service is dispensed to
applicants numbering 100 to 150 a day,
shall be established in the larger
towns. Many natives trained for med
ical service will travel from one vil
lage to another distributing medi
cines and treating the ill. Particular
attention will be given to the care of
children, as the mortality among in
fants is actually 40 per cent of the
total deaths. Pamphlets are now be
ing printed in the Malagasy language
giving rules of hygiene. It is hoped
that the measures which are being
taken to improve the health of the
people may result in the rapid In
crease of the population, which now
numbers only 2,500,000. The Governor
General says that in a half century
the population of Madagascar should
be double.—New York Sun.
