latest and most important book, a
beautifully bound c:ry of which we have
just received from Messrs E. IIan

We assure the readers of the Herald
that the afore.caid "Jolly Friend" com
municates not one only, but a goodly
number of secrets well worth knowing.
He solves the problem of cheap livimr,
showing how om may live well and
thrive, upon less than one dollar a iccck!
He teaches how to live so that one need
never be troubled with ':the blue.," or
suffer with biliousness, or dyspepsia. He
toils how to manage to that you shall
have white teeth, sweet breath, Btron
muscle1?, pood spirits, refreshing sleep,
and Ions HTe. Our "Jolly Friend" coun
sels well and wisely on all these point.",
and many more, aud enforces hij pre
cepts by a host of anecdotes, and a vein
of mirthful raillery, that are enjoyable
in the extreme.
We confidently believe this Look will
save thousands of doctors' bills, if its
wisdom is heeded ; fur how to kcejy well
is, after all, the "principal thing to most
of us. This elegant volume is sold exclu

We have received from G. C. Hiukok,

The Omaha Dailies have made a con

rules about payments, &C
They arc determined to conduct their

No free lists, no free puffs, no churchor

and get what 3'ou pay for.
This is r:ght ; we agree perfectly with
them in all their rules until they come
down to thi one :
"No Dnily exchanges will be made
with Weekly papers."
This is simply one of those things
Omaha cannot afford to do. Under

Will the laboring man never learn
that striking for higher wages does not
permanently benefit his condition? Can
ha not see as plainly as the nose on his
face that if the cost of manufacturing
an article is increased it is simply added
to its value, and some other poor man
must pay for it ? For in?tancr, 6Uppo.se
all the shoemakers strike and ask fifty
cents a pair mora for their vork, or what
is the same thing, they decide to woik
eight hours a day ins'ead of ten. The
price of all boots a;id shoes goes up 50
cents, that is all there is of it. Now the
hoot and shoe makers are satNfied, and
they are doing better, but who buys
their shoes? The butcher, the baker,
the candlestick maker, and they are
poor as well, and the poor shoe makers,
who have bettered their conditions as
exchange if we want it but because we
know the influence a daily paper has on
the thoughts and minds of those who
read it constantly.
Cut off the Omaha exchanges from
the country press, or force them to pay
for the same, and many will send abroad
for a Chicago, St Louis, or New York
daily, which is much larger and fuller as
far as news goes and in a short time
instead of public matters being viewed
from a Nebraska stand point, they would 80 butchers combine and the price
of justice, have thrown a burden on the
poor of all cta-sjs except themselves;
in snort, have not helped the general
masses of poor folks all over the world
(which is their loader's cry) but simply
the poor shoemaker. Now, how docs
this work? Let us tee: Soon the
butcher says, "stars ! !" I have to pay
so much for shoes far my family, and
the butcher's boy says the shoemaker's
boy gets bigger wage;, and he must,'
be viewed through the glasses of New
York, Chicago, or St. Louis or mayhap
Lincoln instead of Omaha.
It is likewi-e a matter of doubt wheth
er the County Press can't do without
the Omaha papers better than the Oma
ha Dailies can do without the County
papers. Suppose the County papers

dlestick maker follow suit on the same
ground and for the same reason. Now,
pray tell wherein lli3 poor shoemaker
is benefited ? He gets 50 cts a day more
for his work and pays out f l.'J a day
more for his living than he did before.
If this is considered too narrow an il
lustration, we simply point to the coudi
SpeakiDg of c mbinations, there is
another class of people who may com
bine, who may form a trade-union that
few have thought of hitherto. It looks
like it now. They are waking up. All
these trades-men, all these oil men,, al
these malcontents who think they do not
receive enough of this world's goods ;
ye of the big cities, especially, suppose
the farmers of this laud should combine
and say: "We'll quit farming for three
years, grain's too low. We can live on
what we i.ave raised ; we can burn lard
oil, wear sheeps' wool clothes, eat our
own hogs and cattle, and do without taa,
sugar and coffee for a year or so." How
would it work. Where would all the
high-fa-lu-tin "Independent order of No.
1 operative masons," or the "first class
co-operative strike all the year round
house-builders union," in New York or
Boston feel about that ? How long be
fore they'd find hoeing corn and tatcrs
fur their own grub, harder work than
hiying brick or sawing lumber at $3 or
$4 per day.

It is said that the teudency of the
times is to make the poor poorer and the
rich richer. Grunted; what has caused
this state? Trude-uuions and the bad
management of the leaders of t: e poor
er classes ; nothing else. Combinations
always produce counter combinations.
Sharp, shrewd men, all over the country
become tired of the petty impositions
they are obliged to submit to as individu
als, or wfcile conducting a small business
and they have combined themselves into
companies Or corpoiations which results
in the monopolies we hear so much of.
To illustrate : Not long since, in an
other town than this, the citizens (that
ia mostly small dealers) were asked
to $4.00 per cord for-wood. This was
uot ail, the gentlemen (?) who hauled
the wood invariably drew short measure,
less than a cord or a half cord, and the
poor men who bought wood had to j
submit, or quarrel, or waste more time
than the shortage on the wood amounted
to. But, theso same wood hauling gen
tlemen would contract and haul and sell
to the railroad company the same kiud
of wood at $3.00 per cord on the follow
ing conditions : "to.be 8 feet high, 4i
feet cut piled two cords high and ac
cepted on.y after being measured by
their agent," which measurement took
place weeks alter the first hanlibg, some
times, when it had settled nicely, and
we guess the railroad company got an
honest cord of wov-d. What has this to
do with strikes? Nothing, only it shows

All this tarmoil about wages and

this trade-union system, which may do

Disturbances in the finances of a coun

protection of one or both parties. The
argument will be a government should
be parental. It should advise, protect
and control its citizens and the pa

forth its hand.

evil in this case.

them for the company. .The price paid

12 to 20 tons. There is probably no
other crop whim could be raised in the
vicinity of Freeport which would have

discovered many years ago that wood
could be made to last longer than iron in

simple and inexpensive that it was not
worth tvhile making any stir about it. I

quaking ash as any other kind of timber

wood posts after having been set teren
years, that were a f-ound wnen taken
up as when they were first put in the

cents apiece, ror the benefit ot others,

An interesting addresj w;i delivertd
recently before the Maine Editors' As

Some notable facts were given. Maine,
for instance, has produced ITli authors
and 1,340 books and pamphlets. This
does not include editors or literary men

Only sevenlnmong fifty editors have re
ceived a college diploma. More than

(The Journal of Education) no literary
