Legislature 88 Repub
lican on Joint Ballot
Nebraska All Right
So far as county returns go. the
Northwestern does not feel especially
elated, nor is the record of the same
calculated to arouse enthusiasm from
a republican standpoint, as will be
seen by the vote given below. That
Sherman is naturally a fusion county,
there exists little doubt in our mind,
but that it will remain a fusion coun
ty we believe next year's election will
demonstrate to the contrary. But
wait and see.
The writer is not provided with the
gift of second sight nor with any
miraculous powers, hence can not
give the reasons for the vast difference
in the votes recorded, nor will we
undertake to try. Be it said that in
regard to the county attorneyship,
Mr. Starr had to bear unnumbered
burdens not by right his own. and
when we consider the wort: against
him and the elements contained for
i lbs defeat, it is little wonder that his
vote is as represented. But Robert
I P. Starr is a republican and will re
l main a republican under triumph or
defeat, as he is built of ths.t kind of
material, arid will arise out of the
present like Aiax of old, strong for
the fray, nor knows nor acknowledges
such thing as defeat or faint-hearted
ness. and no sore nor weak spots will
be found in his armor.
In the race for representative.
Carle T. McKinnie lias shown a
strength that was not expected by
the average voter, and considering
that bis opponent was one of the
strongest men in the county, a resi
dent for the greater part of his life
in Sherman county, the editor of the
fusion party organ and a man
whom everybody knew well and favor
ably, and from the further fact that
Mr. McKinnie had to bear the heavy
burden of the support of a certain
, element detested by the great body
of republicans of this county, which
worked to the disadvantage of Mr.
McKinnie's candidacy, the fact that
Carle T. McKinnie only fell seven
votes behind that of Gov. Sheldon
speaks volumes for the strength of
our candidate for representative.
Wliile we have lost out on represen
tative in this county, we have won in
this senatorial district. R. M. Thomp

General Election News
While Sherman county has given a
little sprinkle of cold water upon lo
cal republican sentiment the news
from the state at large and from the
other state elections were of a most
News by phone to the Northwest
ern from W. R. Mellorat Lincoln last
evening states that Sheldon and the
entire republican state ticket has
been elected by majorities ranging
between 15.000 and 20.000. The legis
lature. also, will be republican by ss
on joint ballot. The only bad break
in the congressional directory will be
found in the election of Gilbert M.
Hitchcock, editor of theOmaha World
Herald. in the 1st district, who is re
ported to have defeated Kennedy,
the republican congressman, by the
small figures of 250. but later figures
may wipe that out and secure the re
turn of Congressman Kennedy to the
National lower house.
New York has gone republican by
60.000, and elects Hughes, rep., to the
governorship. A splendid day s work
when the people refuse to honor the
.dastardly demagogue. Hearst.
Cummins is elected in Iowa all
right, but at reduced majorities, ow
ing to the Perkins sorehead vote.
Wisconsin. New Hampshire and
Conneticut returns go to show re
publidan victories in those states.
All in all, republicanism is tri
umphant everywhere except in the
22 states holding elections.
Michigan elects Warner, rep., for
governor around the 100,000 mark. j
Massachusetts republicans win in
the election of Guild for governor.
Returns from Chicago indicate!
sweeping republican victories.
Minnesota makes a toboggan slide
into the democratic camp.
Colorado has gone over to Repub
licanism in good shape.
The National house and senate is
Indiana is republican by 35.000 to
Ohio goes republican all right.
Advertise in Local Papers.
Gov. Folk in his address to the
retail merchants of Missouri at their
convention at .Jefferson city gave the
following valuable advice to the coun-.
"We are proud of our splendid cities
and we want them to increase in
wealth and population, and we also
want our country towns to grow. We
wish the city merchants to build up.
but we also desire the country mer
chants to prosper. I do not believe
in the mail order citizen. If a place
is good enough for a man to live in.
it is good enoug for him to spend his
“No merchant can succeed without
advertising in one way or another.
Patronize your town papers, build
them up. and they will build the town
up and build you up an increased trade
and greater opportunities. Do not be
afraid that business is going to be
hurt by the recent exposures of wrong
doing in the commercial world. No
man who is doing an honest business
can be injured by the light. All busi
ness will be better for the cleansing 1
process it is going through and the
stamping out of the evil."
He Was Very Bashful.
Theo. Widaman tells the follow ing
story on one of his brothers who was \
married a number of years ago.
"Yon don't know how bashful my
brother was when he got married. The I
gals just worried the life out of him.
When lie stood up to get married they
all giggled, and when the minister j
asked him if he'd take the woman to
be his wedded wifr. he said "purty
well, thankee" and when lie pro-1
nounced them man and wife, and said
••what God has joined together let no
man rip apart." he broke down and
bawled. Oh! it was horrible! Bout
eleven o’clock the old man sez: "Your
room is at the head o' the stair." he
was so skeered that when lie tried to
stand up his legs gave way and he fell
over the dog and got bit in three j
places. He waited till every one had
gone to bed. then crawled up stairs i
like a spoon thief. He was afraid to j
go in, so he sat on the stairs and
shivered. It’s no use. sez he. wat's i
got to be he7. So he took off his
clothes in the dark and shut his eyes
Then he made a break for the door
He found the bed. pulled the cover j
over his head and laid on tlie front
rail. In the morning he peeped thro' j
his fingers to see if he could dress i
and get out before hits wife woke up.:
and hang It all, if be wasn't in bed j
with the old man ancl woman.” <

coke or wood: whatever fuel you use costs mhney. You have to pay sc
much for it. whether you get all the heat out of it’or not. If a stove wastes
the fuel and only a part ot the heat is extracted, your fuel bills are higher
than they should be. It is
therefore protitabe for you to
get a stove that will get all
the heat out of the fuel and
not waste it. The Genuine

LOAD YOUR HORSES’ NECKS!
We want to call the attention of our customers to the all-important
question of haw the team shall be hitched to the manure Sprtader. It is a
momentous question and often not artfully considered—how to get free,
flexible movement to the pole without loading the team unnecessarily.
When you examine the Litchfield Manure Spreader you will see what
| we mean. You will find that the hitch is low. and that the draft on the
tugs practically takes all weight off from the necks of the horses. This is
something that is impossible with those machines where the front axle is
not braced to the Spreader and where the tongue is obliged to answer the
We cannot think that any sensible man will want to brace his front axle
on his horses necks, as it is necessary to do where the tongue is the only
retaining brace or support for this front axle. Examine the Litchfield
Spreader and see how our bolster is braced to tins front of the frame and
how the axle is connected bj a high carbon steel brace. back under the body
of the machine.
A thorough bracing of the front axle, so that that the wheels cannot be
I pulled out from under the machine or collapsed back under it when striking
chuck-holes and other obstructions is absolutely necessary,. Many manu
facturers put this bracing strain on to the tongue and therefore on to the
horses' necks, instead of confining this bracing to the machine itself.
The tong ue on any vehicle should be merely a means of guiding the
vehicle and should be hinged freely, so that no load up or down sliali come
against the liorses. It is not wise to drag down on your horses' necks
when pulling the machine through heavy ground o:r throng bad chuck-lioles;
neither is it advisable to throw the point of the tongue in the air as high as
the harness will permit it to go, when backing up in bad places. In other
words, we say, hinge four tongue freely to the Spreader, or. if your team
most carry part of the load, put it on to their backs, and not on to their
