Fred, Let's Shake.
It will be remembered that Mr. Nye
of the Omaha News, made sone re
marks about being the agent of the
Utes once, and called the 2few York
Sun a "Republican paper." We took
him to task for this and he said it was
all a joke. We believe it norr we've
got posted in jokes ; we recognize them
lately, better than we used to. We
also promised to laugh at Fred's
Blaine boom. Our time to laugh (that
is, his and eurs) has come. Fred ran
a desperately strong Blaine paper and
"Rosey"got away with the baggage,
Fred getting one vote to go to Colum
bus in what they both call a Blaine
Convention. -' -
We ran a moderate anti-BIaine pa
per, carried our own ward solid and
wont to the County Convention as a
candidate for Columbus also. We got
49 votes out of 109 in a convention
that finally elected a solid Blaine dele-
gatjpn to Columbus; but our 49 votes.
didn't do us any more good in getting
there than Fred's oe, so wo are even
nly we have the laugh on our side,
rather. Wo propose now, Mr. Nye, to
shako-, 'and adopt your motto, " It's all
a'joke.'" You didn't run a Blaine
boom and we didn't run any "anti
BIaine paper. We never were candi
dates any more- than you wanted the
Ute agency. We wouldn't go lo Co
lumbus if they asked us, would we,
Nye? We've been joking all the
time. The Sun is a Republican paper,
and we were only in fun all the time.

We could not help noticing the
growth of Weeping Water during our
late visit there. Convention day.. The
Railroad surveys there, whether they
mean business at once or not, have al
ready had their effect on the town, and
new-comers are dropping in every day.'
A large corps of surveyors, with their
accoutrement, tents and horses,-have
been camped right in the village all
the spring; they have run a number of
lines (mostly bringing up in Frank
Wolcott's orchard), and finally settled
on one, we believe, and the people feel
confident of hearing the whistle shriek
before snow. flies. In .fact, when we
heard . the voice ef the Secretary call
ing the roll, and we had only 49 votes,
whereas we wanted 50, we thought we
smelled the smoke of a future engine
then, and heard the sizzing of the steam
as the conductor shouted: "All aboard

On Monday of this week occurred
the sad death of two children of Mr.
and Mrs. Carrigan within a'few hours
ef each other. John, the oldest, aged
about 8, at 1 o'clock, and Eddie, aged 3,
at 5. The oldest had been suffering for
some time with lung difficulties, and
the other, with the remaining children
of the family four in number, with
measles, ' ani afterward whooping
cough, his constitution being unable to
bear the continued strain of both.' The
baby now lies very ill with whooping
cough, and fears are entertained that
it too may not recover. The funeral of
the two little boys took place Tuesday
morning. The fainiiy has been sadly
afflicted this winter, the father having
been seriously " ill of lung fever, and
all the children with whooping cough
and measles, which in these two cases
has proveu fatal.

Railroad Company will commence on
May 1,1880, and continue during the
season, the salt of first-class excursion

vicinity ,that of A i s. Hopkins, was bur

been in our neighborhood long, but
was well liked by those who got ac
quainted with her.
Luella was well pleased with the
olid Blaine delegation elected at
Weeping Water. We were some
amused at the. tender feelings of our
Grant friends, about putting Blaine
"brass collars" on Blaine delegates.
As they weie not so tender hearted

and Grant delegates in Pennsylvania

was a different kind of brass, we pre

Personally we would be glad to have

for a delegate, but politically be hap

Our very special school meeting
came off Saturday night and lasted un
til the wee snia' hours ol the Sabbath.
There were no lives lest, but there was
some very queer legislating done, that
laid our late session at Lincoln in the

One of those beautiful little episodes
that mark the boundary lines along the
pathway of life occurred on Chicagq
Avenue, Wednesday eveningMay 12,
1880. We allude to the celebration of
the Golden Wedding, or 50th Anniver
sary of Mr. arid Mrs. T'.'j'. Todd.
A few old friends, with their chil
dren gathered together to celebrate
this event, and they all bear witness
that the happy couple looked "most
as good as uew" and seemed to bid fair
for another half century of wedded
bliss if nothing more serious happens
to them in the last half than has here

great newspapers of the country could
be counted on the fingers of one hand
and the total number in the U. S. was
low down in the hundreds instead of
way up in the, thousands a3 at present.
This great and wonderful West,
where Uncle Todd and wife now rest
so happily, was "The Great American
Desert." California was an unknown
land, the Rocky Mountains a huge bug
bear of inaccessible and frightful pre
cipices, where the lion roarea ana tno

for its young, and the whole North

an iron band the West to the East, and

The Rev. Mr. Mullis made a short
address with prayer and was followed
by Mr. D. H. Wheeler, who with a few
appropriate remarks presented the
gifts brought by the various friends.
Among them were a handsome butter

The late report of the general agent
of the Rhode Island State Temperance
Union, under the head of "Dangerous
Beverages," says: "The increasing sale
of what are termed 'the lighter drinks'
portends untoli evil to our people.
lneuseot.tne strong liquors is inev
itably connected with drunkenness,
vice, pauperism, degradation, and
crime in tue minus ot both old and
young. They recognize such danger in
their use as to repel the temptation to
any indulgence in them, so far as the
younger portion are concerned, unless
an appetite has been previously form
ed. The greatest danger lies in the use
of drinks which create the appetite; or
that develops what is termed a 'hered
itary appetite.' Can we ascertain this
important truth? Fortunately we are
not left to grope in the dark here. Fer
mented liquors of all kinds are the
kindling-wood which fires the drunk
ard's life. The necessity of abstaining
from these cannot be overstated.' Let
parents remtmbwr' that in the use of
cider, domestic wine, ale, lager beer or
any other fermented liquor, there is of
necessity danger to their offspring.
Total abstinence is the demand of the
hour. Beware, beware of fermented

In 18C4, the venerable surgeon of

thirty years I have not once prescrib

now tried both ways, with and with
out alcohol; and 1 am now fully of
opinion that a more dishonest or cruel
act cannot be inflicted on a patient
than to prescribe or order alcohol as a
medicine. So strongly am I convinced
that I should consider myself criminal
if I again recommend alcohol, either
as food or medicine. During my long
practice, i nave not Known or seen a
single disease cured by alcohol; on the
contrary, it is the most fertile produ
cer of disease, and may be considered
the bane of medicine and the seed of
disease. It is destitute of any medicin
al principle, implanted by the Creator
in genuine medicines. I have found
acute diseases sooner cureJ without al
conoi, ana enronic mucn more man
ageable. I haye never seen a patient
or any person . injured by leaving off
alcoholic fluids at once. I should as
soon expect, as Dr. Scoit has said, kill
ing a Jiorse by leaving of the whip an J
spur. a ;
Dr. L. M. Bennet. M. R. C. S., says:
From all ihe observation and experi
ence 1 have had for a period of thirty
years,' I have come to this conclusion
that intoxicating drinks in any quan
tity, however small, are u-.necessary
tomaintain health; that they are nei
ther necessary, nor desirable to sup
port the frame under excitement, nor
to recruit when exhausted; that when
a necessity exists for the use of a stim
ulant in the treatment of disease, a
safer, more certain, and effectual sub
stitute can be found; that the mortal
ity in disease will always be in in pro
portion to the amount of alcohol used
in the treatrneut, and that the entire
disuse of it as a medicine would prove
highly beneficial to mankind."

The spelling is not according to the
dictionary, but the moral of this arith

"Dis maw n in" ez I war walkin' out

began brother Gardner;' at the last
meeting of the Lime Kiln Club, Mis
ser Darius Green, de white man. come
'long, an' dere war a powerful sad look
on his face, ez he leaned ober de fence
am' said: Misser Gardner, dis sufferin
hez got to come to a cease!" . .
"Hez you got de shakes an' chills?"
"Wuss dan dat, Misser Gardner, 1'ze
workin' de long week for ten shilin'a
a day, an' whar de money goes I can't
teil.'De ole woman wants new clothes,
de chillin want dis an' dat, de rent
runs behiu', an' I'ze gittin'.desperiU" -
t'Shoo, now! but let's make some fig

dein you chew teibacker?"
"Yes, I chew 'bout ten cents' worf a
"Dat's seventj- cents a week. An
you drink lager?"
"Well, ob course, I drink a glass now
an' den may be fifteen glasses a week."
"Dat's seventy-five cents moah, sah.
What d'ye do on Sundays?" '
"O, go up to de beer garden."
"An' you spen' a dollar at least?"
"I guess so maybe two of 'em."
"Say twelve shilling's,1 an' dat makes
two dollars an' ninety-five cents per
week. I reckon you f row away at least
free dollars ebery week, sah."
"Frow it away?" ,
"Yes, sah, dat money would pay your
rent an' buy your flour." :
v "But a fellow must have some comfort."
"De same, sah. De greatest comfort
in de werld am to see de rent paid up,
de family dressed up, de table loaded
down, an de ole woman able to go to
church. You frow away free dollars
ebery week, sail, an' den go round
cussin de times, de wedder.an de man
who hez saved his money."
Gem'len, dat white man called me an
ole black fool, and a dog-stealer, but
dat didn't alter de case a bit. He is
frowin' away one-third of his weekly
wages, an den blowin roun' dat he's
gettin desperit an"ready to head

The oleaginous liquids are discharged
into the atmosphere in large qtiami-
