President Harrison is now gettiig
fettled down to business and is be
ginning to make appointments as
easily as his predecessor did. From
present indications he will le the
most distinguished picsident since
the great commander occupied the
Gov. Thayer is making one of the
best governors the state has ever pro
duced. He pays strict attention to
business and watches the interests of
the people with an uneiring eye. He
is a grand man and an excellent gov
ernor. If the people suffer any out
rages while John 51. Thayer is in
office it will be no fault of his.
With the opening of spring Ne
braska will see the largest emigration
set in for her borders that has ever
been known. The eastern people
have discovered that Nebraska is
about to become one of the most im
portant agricultural states in the
Union. The state presents great in
ducements to eastern people who arc
in search for good terms.
We notice by reference to th Am.
ericus, (Georgia) Daily Recorder, that
our old friends W. L. Glessner, C. L
Glcssnerand II. C. Storey have organ
ized the Amcricus Publishing Co.,
with a capital stock of $100,000.
These gentlemen have aided the up
building of Americus wonderfully,
and their efforts seem to be fully ap
preciated by the enterprising people
of that live city. We arc glad to ace
them succeed in their enterprise as
they are manifestly deserving.
The present legislature has been
one of the most expensive of any ses
sion since the state was organized, we
believe. High handed fraud seems
to be rampant on every hand. Num
erous and costly employes, hangers
on, etc., etc., and a lot of unecessary
help has been employed for the sole
purpose of bleeding the state of its
wealth. A "public treasury is a pub
lic trait" and not a public crib for
the support of every loafer in the
country. The standard of the legis
lature should be raised, and designing
politicians and tools should be rele
gated to the rear ranks, and a reward
put upon honesty and fidelity.
Recently there came to work in a
Brookfield family a Swedish woman,
who, hearing of a young woman's
trouble from insomonia, told her of
the practice of the people of her
country who are similarly afdictcd.
It was to take a napkin, dip it in ict
cold water, wring it slightly and lay it
across her eyes. The plan was fol
lowed and il worked like a charm.
The first night the girl slept four
hours without awaking, something
she had not done for several months.
At the end of tint time the napkin
had become dry. By wetting it again
she at one went to sleep, and it re
quired 'considerable force to awaken
her in the morning. Ex.

An exchange, who probably has
heard of the Twin of the "Big S" says
Wc haven't the pleasure of the ac
quaintance of the "what is it under
consideration, but what seems to ail
him is that he i determined to have
a fight with men who have something
more than several quarts of nothing
to fill in around the bump of self
esteem, and not having any more im
agination than a post-hole, he doesn't
know the difference between a little
plcuantry and a column and a half of
personal abuse, and whilo wc are poor
and war paint comes high, if he insists
on dealing in reminiscences and per
sonalities, we will accomodate him
with au accomodation oh which there
will he no flies."'

"In the office of Doctor McKeeby,
we were shown a few days ago a case
of Hotts disease, an affection of the
spine, Ac. Twin.
We have heard of moat every kind
of a disease that human flesh is heir
to, but the red beaded twin down the
way has discovered that man is afflict
ed at times with the "Uotts." Won
derful indeed that with all of the
great men of the day, that tbe dis
covcry of ''Botts" in man should be
left to an obscure country editor.
Potty ought to be in great u-tnaud at
the monopoly headquarters after the
above discovery for brain fillinir.

Red Cloud, March 19th, '39.
Dear friend Hall. Taking it for
granted that you would like to hear
from me, I will proceed to inform you
that we girls are getting ready for a
good time this coming spring and sum
mer and if our health and strength
continues to improve in the next com
ing season as favorably as it has done
in the past, thanks to a kind Provi
dence. Well to tell you the truth wc
girls (that is Grace, Edith and my
self) arc just dying to make a run
down, bnt you see there arc more
things than money matters to be con
sidered, in leaving town just at the
present. There's the new toilet and
one hundred and one other things.
Oh! by the way have you seen those
new vails? Ain't thoy horrid, but
then they arc all the rage, and they
are so cheap that you can get one for
a mere song, and I imagine I would
look like old Mother Goose in one.
but one might as well be out of the
world as to be out of fashion.
Oh! yes, Hallic, not changing the
subject from vails to engagements too
sudden, the time has come, my dear
schoolmate, that I am engaged to a
real live man, and he is just too nice
for anything, and his first name is
well I will not mention it just yet, as
there is, many a slip, etc, you know
aad for fear that all the other fellows
would naturally feel green in raonopo,
lizing blank's affianced I will state
wc are fast friends. There are not
many girls in town that don't cast
iheeps eyes at blank, but then it is
only natural, they not knowing that I
have clinched his heart. Oh! yes,
we have a new y. m. in town who is
decidedly nice, but don't mention this
so that Harry (oh, now I have told)
will find it out

all, you can well imagine, Dave is the
lame old sixpensc. I don't know why
the Red Cload girls don't set their
caps for him. One of our crowd has
joined the innumeraole throng of
Benedicts I dropped a silent tear.
Well to tell yoa the truth Bed Cload,
is a little oa the quiet order just now
it being Leal, but you wait until the
matrimonial market blooms ia the
spring when tome of oar old maids
will be cinied off to the matrimonial
sacrifice and then won't that he joy-
girls wc called on wore just dying of
envy one could sec it in their vory
eves. Well, ta ta. K
