Hon. A. B. Cummins of Iowa has
announced himself as a condidate for
president, and expects to carry the
Iowa vote to the national convention
and probably, if he can not secure
the nomination, will hand the Iowa
vote over to his friend La Follette.
Years and years ago. and then some,
Bryan was making speeches in which
he claimed the future of democracy
as very bright. Willyam should
iiave waited till the present time, or
have dated his prognostications ahead
to 1&12. and then perhaps not made
the date far enough ahead.
Gee whiz! Fifty-six men have tiled

ballot, and very few of the counties

the ballot will be longer than across

We are in receipt of a circular letter
from John O. Yriser of Omaha, the
gentleman who created such a stir in
political circles by filling the name
of Theodore Roosevelt as a candidate
for pr-aidenr to be placed upon the
primary ballot in Nebraska. Mr.
Yriser wants to try a new way of se
curing delegatee to be placed on the
primary ballot favoring the nomi
nation of Teddy. He proposes that
the wishes of voters be expressed by
personal letters or petitions to be
mailed him before Feb. 1st, Instead
of having a convention to do the
same. In these letters he wants the
expressed wish for four delegates at
large and two names for each con
gressional district, and a'so name
for Natiooal committeeman. There
la the chance for Teddyltes to get
action, if they desire and have a
Roosevelt named delegation placed
on the primary ballot. It will be
qnite Interesting to note the result.
Lays It on Warm
The Kearney Democrat lays it on
warm in regard to the prospective
treatment of the Sherwood service
pension bill. It says: The Sherwood
bill has gone to the Senate where it
will be chopped into seven kinds of
hash for the old ‘ veteran’s sake.” It
says: uThey appear to reason that a
man who has slept in mud. walked on
blistered heels, ate salt sowbelly and
and wormy crackers and had daylight
shot through his lungs for four or
five years, wouldn’t know what to do
with a dollar a day pension—he might
overeat and contract indigestion.”
The Democart says it should be $30
per month, instead of $30. It would
but those who are drawing $20 a day
chink that $30 a month for the old
vets, would be a drain on the treas
ury.—Grand Island Free Press.
La Follette is said to be suffering
over visions of Teddy in the presiden
tial race, and is reported as saying he
believed Roosevelt was looking toward
a nomination and re-election. With
Kansas and its governor, the New
Jersey republicans outspoken in favor
of Roosevelt’s nomination, with West
Virginia said by competent leaders

All fraternal insurance companies
seem to come to a time when they
have to readjust their rates upward.
The Modern Woodman have always
claimed that they had their rates
adjusted so they would last through
all time, yet just now the head push
of that fraternal organization is try
ing to advance the insurance rates
and a royal battle is being made to
prevent the same by the Brotherhood.
We have been told in the past that
the day would come when as the mem
bership majority got older in years
this would have to be done, but the
idea was poo-hooed as not to be thot
of, yet that time has come, and us
older members in age are up against
it, as our age precludes our getting
out and into other fraternal associa
tions and age preludes, also, getting
into old line companies without enor
mous outlay. So there you are; you
fellows who have no insurance home
to go to, if you drop out of this one.
On the other hand, if the rates are
raised, thousands of the younger mem
bers will drop out, disintegrating the
membership to such an extent that
the M. W. A. may have to close its
books before we die, and our anxious
heirs get nothing for all the years
our money lias been put into the so
ciety. Hard luck, either way, eh?
Patrons along the mail routes have
been somewhat direlict in a certain
real duty during the late extreme
cold weather, in not putting them
selves to some extra trouble and la
bor to see that the roads were in
better condition for the patient
carriers. Especially is this true of
those who receive mail on the rontes
but who live some distance away from
the line of travel. Day after day the
carriers have been obliged to carry
shovels and dig their way through
drifts, some times not being able to
make the distance and get back before
eight and nine o’clock at night, when
they could with good roads get in as
early as four in the afternoon. If
the patrons in their entirety would
only help with a little elbow grease
and a few minutes each with their
shovels, all this delay might be avoid
ed and the road put in such shape
that carriers could make their rounds
at the scheduled pace. Now, boys
along the routes, when you go to
your boxes after the mail, suppose,
during the snow storms and after,
you take along your shovels and help
make the roads free of drifts and you
will call down upon your devoted
heads a shower of blessings from
the carriers and relievo their poor
dumb animals of much of the burdens
of the day. Try it, God bless you, and
see what effect it has on you and how
blessed it is to give where you receive.
Hit by Passenger Train
Tuesday morning A. Fowler, of
Arcadia had a narrow escape from
death or serious injury. He was
driving out of town east in a top
buggy when the east bound passenger
train came along. The team he was
driving had just started to cross the
track as the train reached the cross
ing and as Mr. Fowler was well
bundled up, he did not notice the ap
proaching train. The engine struck
one of the horses just in front of the
left flank and carried both horses
and buggy for about thirty feet. One
of the horses escaped with apparently
no injury, but the one struck directly
by the engine was torn up quite badly
and had to be shot.
When the buggy was carried along
by the train Mr. Fowler was thrown
into the air but fell in the buggy
•gain and was carried along with it
being Unall thrown into the snow. It
is thought that the heavy snowdrifts
along the right-of-way was the only
thing that saved his lire. The en
gineer of the passenger said he did
not kdow he had run into anything
until he arrived at Loup City, and
while oiling the engine, noticed the
blood on the wheels. He then tele
graphed back to find out if anything
had been reported as being run over.

Good all-around country news and ;

Steady pleasant job for right man.
What's There to It?
Some month’s since, the North
western had several articles along
the line of the-extension of the Bur
lington, and the making this a main
line, instead of a branch. Friend
Beushausen of the Times intimated,
at the time, that it was all hot air.
Perhaps. But within the past two or
three weeks, Brer. Charley seems to
have become innoculated with that
same supposed hot air virus, put on
rose-colored spectacles and has been
shooting paper balls to see if the bub
ble would hurts, and finding it of ma
terial substance instead, eqpresses no
pessimism, but has awaked to the
probabilities. Good boy, Beush. The
Northwestern has had not the slight
est doubt but this would be done
and at no distant day, so we are go
ing to join our modern Rip Van Win
kle contemporary in putting forth
push medicine, instead of disclaimers
and try to keep him out of another
deep sleep. Last Sunday, twe train
loads of cinders for track ballast, 29
cars in all, containing nearly a thous
and tons, steamed into Loup City,
and another train load is expected
today, to increase the efficiency and
solidity of the roadbed, and knowing
onces prophecy a portion »is to be
used here to make solid surface
grounds for roundhouse and machine
shops, preparatory to making this a

the Times join us in the glad refrain
and with optimistic belief that Loup
City will soon be taken off the rural
route and be placed in 7-day touch
with the outside world. Charley was
always all right, with a little fixing.
