The Devil’s Soliloquy.
One night as the devil sat musing alone
In the midst of his cozy warm fire.
And trying to figure the difference in
'Tween a thief and all-around liar,
His memory turned to scenesof youth
And his eyes tilled with hot, boiling
So he took down his ledger and turned
to a page
Dated back about 6.000 years.
; I suppose, he said, as he glanced thro'
I am doing the best that I can,
My business shows continual increase
Even since the creation of man.
I’ve cribbed a good harvest for 6.000
And should be content with the yield
And give my opponent permission to
The gleanings I leave in the field.
I’ve gathered a very diversified crop
Of merchants and lawyers galore:
I've bound politicians in bundles until
Every one of my fingers are sore.
I’ve fiddlers, gamblers, insurance men
I've murderers, forgers and liars:
I've filled the furnace with green vot
Till they actually put out the fires.
I’ve railroad conductors and doctors
Horse traders a nd preachers to spend
Republicans, democrats, tories. whigs
Anri two or three newspaper men.
But there is one class. I am nappy to say
Can never gain entrance here.
Their souls are so dirty, they would,
1 am sure.
Demoralize hell in less than a year.
I refer to that thing, neither human
The carrion crow of the world—
Who is never so happy as w hen he can 1
On tiie wreck of an innocent girl.
A million ofyears in my hotestof rooms
His slander could never atone,
So 1 give him a match and advise him |
A select little hell of his own.
With his fingers he lit an asbestos cigar
And placing his book on the shelf.
He muttered. “I may be a verV ba<f mall
But I've got some respect fdfr myself."

Enforce Anti-Treat Law.
Governor Sheldon is being called
: upon to enforce the anti-treat law.
I An organized effort is being made all
| over tiie state, printed petitions liave
I been circulated and have begun to
pour in upon the governor asking him
as the chief executive whose duty it
is to enforce laws to see that treating
is stopped in saloons and other public
places as provided by section 31 and
32 of an independent act passed in
1881. The law applies to the giving
away of intoxicating liquors. For
the first offense a fine of 810 or im
prisonment in the county jail for ten
days, or both, may be imposed.
Petitions have been received by the
governor from Elmwood, Aurora,
Dawson and Ord. He has taken no
action in regard to the matter. The
law has been a dead letter ever since
it was passed, only one or two at
tempts having been made to enforce
it. Under the Sackett law passed
last winter the attorney general may
proceed, when directed by the govern
or. to remove any officer who fails to
enforce a law which it is his duty to
enforce. Few prosecutions have been
attempted under this law. It will lie
difficult to show whose duty it is to
enforce laws where county and city
: may have equal jurisdiction.
E. Munn Passes Away.
Mr. E. Munn, Hazard.s foremost
citizen, and one of the oldest settlers
in southern Sherman county, died
Monday, Dec. 8th, at the age of 07
years, 2 months and 4 days.
The deceased was an Englishman
by birth, being born in London in
1840. He came to the United States
about forty years ago, locating first
in Minnesota, afterwards moving to
Iowa, where he lived for five years.
During his residence in Iowa lie was
married, and in 1879 Mr. and Mrs.
Munn moved to this state locating on
a homestead, on which the present
village of Hazard is located. Two
children were born to Mr. and Mrs.
M unn, one of whom died in infancy,
and his wife and one daughter. Miss
Frances Munn. survive him. For
sixteen years Mr. Munn held a com
mission as postmaster at Hazard, re
signing the position only within the
past year on account of his failing
Mr. Munn was a man who was wide
ly known and was a very influential
citizen. He was a man of great integ
rityand his word was considered as
good as his band. He enjoyed the
respect and confidence of all who
knew him and his deatii will be great
ly mourned in the community in
which he lived.
During the last five years of his
life, and particularly during the past
year, lie has suffered almost constant
pain, at times almost unbearable, and
death was to him a welcome relief
from terrible suffering.
The funeral was held at the Metho
dist church in Hazard on Wednesday,
Rev. Matthews of Sargent preaching
the funeral sermon. The remains
were brought to Ravenna for inter
ment in Highland cemetery.
The funeral was very largely at
tended, many peoble coming from
considerable distances to attend the
obsequies. A number of people from
Ravenna attended.—Ravenna News.

Open Letter to Geo. H. Gibson.
To Geo. H. Gibson:
For a long time you have used the
columns of your paper to try and
injure me in my business by making
false statments. For the sake of your
respectable family I have stood this
abuse in your columns without even
answering one article. Ever since
the farmers’ elevators were organized
at this place and Schaupps you have
lied about me and made false reports.
There is no one w ho does not think
that the farmer has just as much
right to own his elevator and ship his
grain and stock as a regular grain
dealer has the right to engage in the
same business. In this country all
men should have equal rights and
what I say in this article does not
reflect upon any farmer handling his
grain, if he thinks he can get more
out of it. But when the farmers’
organization started here many of the
leaders in the organization assisted
by your paper tried to build up the
same by trying to ruin my business.
You circulated reports through your
paper as to the profits which were
made by grain men that caused the
farmers to become dissatisfied with
their home markets, and they have
their own elevators at this place and
Schaupps and have found out that
you were wrong.
For the information of some of the
stockholders in the Loup City ele
vator who do not seem to know it. I
want to say that it never was run as
a farmers’ association, but as soon as
your managers had it built they leased
it to an old line company in Omaha,
who paid you what they pleased for
your grain, and many of you supposed
you were doing business for yourself.
Why did the leaders, assisted by you.
Mr. Gibson, do this? Why. yes why?
Then you at tne same time, urged
the farmers to hold together when in ;
fact you knew it was leased to what j
you call the “trust." Why did you '
j allow the officers to do this? It was
not the farmer you were interested
in. You with others perhaps thought
by a scheme of 'this kind you could
! ruin my business. About the same
conditions existed at Scliaupps until
I think about April 1, 1907, when the
Schaupps farmers, dissatisfied with
your scheme of fooling them, took
their elevator into their own hands,
and have continued to run it them
selves. as they should do. But still!
you were not content with that, and
have continued jour abuse and false
I hoods about me and in your last dirty
! issue your charges are false. Regard
| ing the shipment of hogs which you
i speak of. we did not pay leas than
$3.50 on Monday, while some surround-1
ing tow ns paid as low as $3.30, and
the top price in Omaha that day was j
4c, leaving a very small margin to j
I buy on. You sav “I approached j
■several farmers the day they brought j
their hogs in to ship and offered them j
$3.75, which was more than they!
| would net. and in that way 1 tried to
break the shipment.” This is utterly
false, as I made no offers to any of
the association that morning and
paid $3.65 for some hogs that came in .
direct to us. Some of the farmers
reported to me that they expected ■
, their hogs to net them 4c, as their I
shipper, Mr. Lewandowski, thought!
they were worth $4.45 in Omaha.
Just as the train pulled in and they
were loading the hogs, Mr. Wm. Lew
andowski came to me and said if I
j would give them $3.70 for their hogs
II could have them. I told him had
he offered them to me at that price
one hour before 1 would have ’phoned
to the parties I sell to and tried to
have bought them, but that I would
not buy a car load of hogs without
| finding out the market. Had I
bought the hogs at Mr. Lewandow
ski’s offer, they would have netted
me over $3.80, as I ship direct to a
packing house at Seattle, while Mr.
; Lewandowski shipped them to Omaha.
On the following day their hogs were
on the Omaha market and per your
statement only netted $3.69, and the
market was 15c higher than the day
I paid $3.65.
lou say we were paying 80c for
wheat and when the farmers opened
up their elevator we paid 83c. In the
same issue, also, and often in the
past, you try to carry the idea that I
am doing no business at Schaupps.
For your benefit, when in Ashton on
Monday, Dec. 17tli, I went to the
depot from where all shipments at
Schaupps are billed, and compared
the shipments of the farmers’ assoc
iation to my own since April 1, 1907
which I think was about the time
tliey begun business for themselves,
to Dec. 17, 1907, and found that I
have shipped four cars of gr^n for
each one they have shipped, and ten
cars of hogs for each car they have
shipped. I do not make this showing
to discredit the association, but to
show how false your statements are,
and I challenge you to make a differ
ent showing on our shipments. The
fanners, as well as the business men,
are losing confidence in you.
You even tried to bring me into the
Sekutera deal, as you called it, when
you well knew I never had any in
terest in the land at any time. Even
if I had been interested, my brother,
F. J. Taylor, did nob get* the money

C. W. CONHISER
Loup City, Nebraska
out of the judgment that you have!
talked about for the past six months.
Nearly every one knows that the
amount due on this judgment was
deposited in a bank in Sherman coun
ty and is still held In trust to be
turned over to Sherman county or the
heirs of the estate, and it was not a
matter between F. J. Taylor and
Sherman county, but the Sekutera
heirs and Sherman county, and if the
countv board saw fit to make settle
ment by having pa rt of the money paid i
in it benefited the very people you i
claim were being robbed. You are
like other rascals of your kind, who
in order to detract attention from
themselves are continually calling out. ]
“Stop thief! stop thief!” when accord
ing to the county^ records kept bv
yourself and which records are at the
present time being investigated by
order of the county board, you are a
defaulter for some *2.00. You must
know from your own records that vou
owe Sherman county more than the
amount of money you accounted for
and turned in as’fees when you were
county clerk. And you are using,
perhaps, some of this same money,
now to publish a paper that makes
false reports in nearly every issue vou
have published for a year! Put this
money tiack before you cry •“thief.”
I am sorry to be called upon to
make this statement, ’i»ut think in
justice to myself I should do so, as
many people who read your dirty
sheet are not acquainted with con
ditions as they are at Loup City. I
am willing to stand upon my record j
made the past 18 years as a business
man ami refer you to the business
men of Ashton and Loup City with
whom I deal. B. 6. Taylor. |
