Attorney General
Drafts Title
The title under which the em>
ployer's liability act, senate file
No. 1, will go on the ballot next
jyear under the referendum law
! has been formulated by Attorney
[ General Martin and sent to Secre
j tary of State Wait, who in due
time will certify it to the county
clerks who will have the ballots
printed. The attorney general, in
preparing the title, has come
within the law which limits the
title to go on the ballot to 100
words. The attorney general's
title contains exactly 100 words.
It is as follows:
“The purpose of this act is to
prescribe the liability of employ,
ers, to establish an elective sched
ule of compensation for injuries
received by employes in the course
of their employment, to modify
common law and statutory defenses
ann remedies in such cases, to
regulate the procedure for deter
mining such liability and to pro
vide the methods for paying com
pensation thereunder. When em
ployer and employe elect to em
brace its provisions, this act ap
plies to every employer employing
five or more persons, including
the state and its government agen
cies. except employers of house
hold servants, farm laborers and
railroad companies subject to con
gressional regulation.”
One Country Editor
Sues Another
Tamora Lyre and Utica Sun In
volved in a Law Suit
Dana Mutz, editor of the Utiea,
Nebraska, Sim, has sued F. P.
Shields and A. K. Shields, editors
of the Tamora Lyre, published at
Tamora, for $10,000 for publish
ing alleged libelous articles in their
paper about the former editor.
The plaintiff in his complaint cites
two separate charges and demands
$5,000 on .each charge.
The Tamora Lyre is a novelty
among Nebraska country news
papers and is well known by
country editors. It is printed
each week on scarlet paj>er and
the editors are not averse to the
use of black type when the occa
sion demands. There has been
some evidence of bad blood be
tween the Lyre and the Utica Sun
for several weeks, and neither pa
per has been sparing of denuncia
tory adjectives.
The last issue of the Lyre car
ried- a quotation from the Sun,
playing it up in black type at the
top of the front page. The quot
ation said several uncomplimenta
ry tilings regarding the town of
Tamora and closed with reference
to “Yellow .Tacket-Ghieago Amer
ican style of journalists." The
last statement called forth a state
ment from the Lyre, and it is un
derstood this statement is the basis
of action.

'All Right So Far
While the Nebraska corn crop
this year may not be so great as
in the past, it is going to bring a
bunch of money to the pockets of
the fanners who have some of the
cereal for sale. On account of the
reports of continued dry and hot
weather throughout the entire com
belt, com on the Omaha market
has advanced eight cents per
bushel during the last ten days
and is continuing to soar, grain
dealers predicting all kinds of
prices for the December and May
options. Some of the dealers are
even talking $1.00 per bushel in
the event the dry weather should
The advance in the prices on the
Omaha market was brought about
by reports from Kansas, Iowa,

“Tired Mothers.”
A little elbow leans upon your knee,
Your tired knee that has so much to bear,
A child’s dear eyes are looking lovingly
From underneath a thatch of tangled hair.
Perhaps you do not heed the velvet touch
Of warm, moist fingers, holding yours so tight;
You do not prize this blessing overmuch.
You are almoost too tired to pray, tonight.
But it is blessedness! A year ago
I did not see it as I do today—
We are so dull and thankless, and so slow
To catch the sunshine till it slips away;
And now it seems surpassing strange to me
That while I wore the badge of motherhood'
I did not kiss more oft and tenderly
The little child that brought me only good.
And if some night, when you sit down to rest,
You miss this elbow from your tired knee,
This restless, tired head from off your breast.
This lisping tongue, that chatters constantly;
If from your owfi the dimpled hand had slipped?
And ne'er would nestle in your palm again:
If the white feet into the grave had tripped,
I could not blame you for your heartache then.
I wonder so that mothers ever fret
At little children clinging to their gown.
Or that the footprints, when the days are wet.
Are ever black enough to make them frown.
If I could find a little muddy boot,
' Or cap or jacket on my chamber floor—
If I could kiss a rosy, restless foot.
And hear it patter in my home once more.
If I could mend a broken cart today,
Tomorrow make a kite to reach the sky—
There is no woman in God’s world could say
She was more blissfully content than I.
But, ah, the dainty pillow next my own
Is never rumpled by a shining head;
My singing birdling from its nest has flown—
The little boy I used to kiss is dead.
—May Riley Smith.
The Sheriff labs
Horse Thief
About ten days since a young
man by the name of Pat Stewart,
claiming to be the son of a ranch
man in Montana put in an appear
ance at the Tom Christensen farm
on the north side of Cliff Table
and asked for a job. He got the
job and after working only five
days made up his mind to move
on and to take with him a bunch
of family jewelry.
The young man managed to get
off with a lady's watch, a brace
let, a lady’s ring, a pendant chain
two gold fobs and a man’s seal
ring. Soon after his disappear
ance the jewelry was missed and
word was at once sent to Sheriff
Wilson in this city. Joe got busy
on the phone and notified the mar
shals of the nearby towns and then
started out on the trail of Hie jew
elry thief. The same evening the
young man returned to the Chris
tensen farm and took one of the
horses. The following day he was
arrested in Arnold and a few min
utes after he was taken in by the
marshal the sheriff appeared on
the scene and brought the young
man to this city and lodged him
in jail.
On his arrival here the sheriff
searched Stewart and found all of
the missing jewelry except the
watch. When quesHoned Stew
art claimed that he the lost latter
near the Christensen house. The
place was carefully searched and
no watch found. After Stewart
had been given his preliminary
and had been bound over to the
district court, in default of bail,
Mr Wilson made up his mind he
would “go through’’ the gentle
man once more for luck and see
if the watch could not be found
and sure enough Mr. Horse Thief
had the watch carefully tucked
into the lining of‘his shoe so that
it came just under the hollow of
his foot. ^
Stewart was taken to Grand Is
land Sunday and lodged in the
Hall county jail to await trial at
the next term of county court
which will convene in this city'on
September 2nd. ^—Custer County

Splendid Came
Nearly Tied Score
The ball game Sunday between
Ansley and Scotia at Jenner's
Park drew a fair crowd and con
siderable money is reported to
have changed hands, but a dis
puted decision during the first of
the game started the ball to roll
ing and shouts of “take him out’’
were heard at frequent intervals.
The bad feeling continued during
the game until the 10th when one
more decision resulted in a refusal
of Scotia to play further, and the
game was called and given to
Ansley, who had scored in the first
half, breaking a tie. This almost
started a riot, but the row was
settled with ‘no serious damage
done. The game was well played,
two home runs being made by P.
H. Caruthers of Ansley, two by
Amilherman of Scotia, and one
given to Sautter of Scotia on a
lost ball. Other good plays were
a backward left hand catch by
Earhood of Ansley, a forward run
ning catch by Dobish of Ansley
and a neat catch by first baseman.
Several clean hits were made by
both sides and pitcher Cook of
Scotia was relieved by Sautter at
the end of the third inning.

Thumb and Finger
Suffers Amputation
Friday morning of last week, j
while Mrs. John Sheehan of Har-'
rist>n township was driving in a
buggy and leading a horse, with !
the halter wrapped around the
thumb and middle linger of her
left hand in some manner, the an
imal jumped or pulled back sud
denly, tearing the thumb and lin
ger in such a frightful way that
the thumb had to be taken off at
the lease and the finger amputated
at the first joint. Drs. Longacre
and J. E. Bowman were called and
performed the surgical work and
at last accounts the injured woman
was getting along nicely.

Mail Order Conpetitlon
Although realizing that the big
mail order houses of the country
take hundreds of thousands (If
dollars of trade each year, many
country merchants sit back com
placently and let the business go'
to their out of town competitors '
without doing anything to offset
it. Some of these merchants do
n2t realize that they can compete
successfully with mail order con
cerns, while others simply take it
as a matter of course.
How a small town merchant suc
cessfully combated the mail order
houses was told by the New York
manager of one mail order concern.
Hearing a great deal of com
ment among his customers about
the offering of a prominent cata
logue house, this merchant got a
catalogue of the concern and ad
vertised that he would place orders
with that house for his trade with
out charge. One of his first cus
tomers for the rival house was a
woman who ordered a shirtwaist
priced at $1.29. On delivery of'
the waist at his store the merchant
called in the customer and then
took from his stock a similar
waist, better made, that he sold
regularly for SI.25.
While the cost difference was
small, the woman recognized the
difference in value and afterwards
bought at home. This helped that
merchant and other dealers in the
Mail order houses advertise ju
diciously and country merchants
should do the same and they will
not suffer much from outside com
petition.—Publishers' Auxiliary.
