The ease against U. S. Senator
Burton of Kansas, indicted on
charges similar to those against Die

U. S. district court at St. Louis, has
ended in finding the senator guilty.
Of course lie has appealed.
Court Reporter Maher and his
famous typewriter are now out of a
job. For years John has been court
reporter up in the Fifteenth judicial
district, first for Judge Westover
and later for Judge Harrington and
has without doubt been one of the
best wireless pop pushers in that
part of the state. Now comes the re
port the John G. has pushed himself
out of his job by taking the reor
ganization side of the democratic
split-up in this state, in opposition
to the views of his chief, who is a
Bryanized demo pop, and so Har
rington used his machete with such
vigorous effect and so quickly that
Maher’s head was off before he
knew it. It was a cold blooded re
ward for faithful services performed
and Maher can now have time for
reflection over the inscrutable ways
of the political god. Harrington
owes to John Maher more than per
haps to any other man in that judi
cial district, except prossibly to his
brother Mike, for his re-election to
the judgship last fall, and has taken
this way to repay him. Maher can
console himself with the knowledge
that he is not the only one up in that
region who has been thus rewarded
for political service, nor Harrington
the only official who has thus re
quited a faithful political worker, i
There have been others.
So much talk of the railroad*
dominating and controlling political
matters, published by the daily
papers, makes one weary. If it is
really the case that the three great
railway systems in Nebraska are able
to and do control the political parties
of this great commonwealth and dic
tate who shall fill the offices of
public trust, a thing we don’t admit,
then the common people must be
the greatest dolts and blockheads
on earth. We don't deny that the
railroads try to get men nomi
nated and elected who will give
them good treatment, even the best
end of the bargain, but we have too
much faith in the independent, pat
riotic American spirit of our people
to take to heart a tithe of the mis
erable r"t about railroad control ap
pearing in great yellow streaks in
the daily press. In the endeavor to
make senational news, the dailies are
full of the veiiest tomyrot Let up.
An American in London recently
purchased the manuscripts of Mil
ton s Paradise Lost, paying therefor
#25,000. A British paper, lament
ing the loss of the precious heirloom
caustically adds: “Let us be thank
ful that Westminster Abbey and St.
Paul s cathedral are not portable,
for otherwise they would be pur
chased by an American millionaire.”

Loup City Lire Fighters.
A regular meeting of the Loup
City Fire Company was held at the
office of the county clerk Friday
evening of last week. After some
general discussion, it was decided to
cut down the membership that had
been on the b.ioks to give room for
more new members who were anx
ious to join. Accordingly eight
names were stricken from the roll.
Most of these were men w ho are
entitled to their certificates. Two
new names, those of Jake Winkle
man and Clarence Sweetland, were
added to the list, and W. J. Mulick
v.as reinstated. They then pro
ceeded to elect a new set of officers

If I were asked to give a final word 1
of advice in this whole matter, l would
not say, as did Horace Greeley, "Go

into horticulture?”—The World’s

Capt. Charles P. Jayne, now resid

was known as the Moning, and, al

sailed under the British flag.
Something to Think Over.
Perhaps the woman who persists
in retaining her hat on her head in
church, thereby hiding the preacher
from the person—and perhaps several
persons—behind her. may be serving
the Lord, but she is subjecting the
temper of the preacher as well as that
of the person behind her to a terrible
strain.— Los Angeles Times.
Uncle Eben’s Advice.
“Don’t put in too much time wor
ryin’ ’bout de little things dat can’t be
helped,’’ said Uncle Eben. “I once
knew an absent-minded man dat was
walkin’ on a railroad track, an’ he got
to thinkin' so hahd 'bout de danger
f’um microbes dat he was run over
by a locomotive."—Washington Star.
American Cars for Germany.
The Bavarian railway has just com
pleted an American palace railway
carriage from material imported for
this purpose two years ago from the
Pullman factories in Pullman, I1L
This is the first railway car of the
kind to be introduced into Germany
and will no doubt be the forerunner of
a regular system of railway carriages
of this kind on German railways.
Kept His Word.
A Sedalia man at a church meeting
the other day said: “I never drink
red liquor. 1 don’t believe in it.’’ The
next day he was seen in a saloon by a
man who heard him say it, just as he
was ordering a drink. “1 thought I
heard you say you didn’t touch red
liquor,” ventured the man. “You did,”
said the other man. Then, turning to
the bartender, he said: “I'll take a
little gin, please.”
Watch the child carefully who Is
always quiet. This is quite an unnat
ural state of affairs, and shows that
something is wrong. Those who go
much among the schools of the very
poor know that it often means lassi
tude from want of proper nourish
ment. If it occurs in the children of
the better off it shows that vitality
is low, ar. d that for some reason or
another the food is not giving the
strength it should do.—Kxchange.
