Our temperance saloon is running
night and day, and the clinking of
glasses, the smell of cigars, and the
click of the festive billiard ball come
floating upon the air, reminding one
of the good old times when wc had
two regular licensed saloons, and got
a couple of thousand annually for our
school funds, But this year, with a
temperance board, everything is mn
ning itself, and nobody aeenis to care.
But it is an ill wind that Mows no

will reap some benefit from our mis
fortune. But-more on the subject in
Well, what has become of the pol

unusual calm no doubt pcrtends a
storm, and we may look for a regular
old cyclone when it does break in
upon our beloved and christian village
breeding coldness, bitterness, and,
for a while at least, contempt and
hatred, among our otherwise peace
able and loving citizens. Now if wc
could only provide for Red Cloud and
Blue Ilill without all this racket how
happy we would be. Rocket.

Neb., Friday, August
A citizen of Walnut has jnst reeciyed
the following letter from the ''great be
yond:"' "Well I am dad. The first I knew of
the fact ".vas when I woke to find myself
knocking at tho 'pearly gate' which was
opened ly Pater, who sniilingly, extended
his hand aud said, 'Ah! it's yon, I've bf.n
expecting you, having read of your sad
takicg oil .and knowing here would be
where you would put np.' Well, he con
tinued, 'how's times' I etartad to eay
d d hard, when a warning 'Sh' nnd n
furiive look over his thoulder checked me
in my headlong career. After a short
chat Peter remarked, "Well I suppose we
might as' well look over yonr account"'
which we proceeded to do. First he drew
down an old file of Red Cl,oud papers and
glancing at some marked articles called
iny attention to them. They were sign
ed various names such as Ponderer. Gro
ver, Judge, etc. There wasn't an article
that failed to state 'The Man in the Moon
has n jugVhe has a little bottle' he had a
jug etc' Peter remarked 'Years ago the
news was threadbare and why does it keep
coming?' I told Peter to 'come off' and
not to fire any conundrums at me. He
continued 'arc yon guilty or not guilty !'
and I answered by throwing myself on
his mercy. 'That's right' he remarked
'and we will make short work of your
case but first I would just like to satisfy
myself on one or two points. First where
was you that 15 years in which yon were
missing' to which I replied; 'I was serving
my time buying stock for an Inavale
feeder,' 'Why did you quit the job?' 'I
didn't quit, I was fired.' 'Why?' 'Because
in all those years 1 brought in nothing
but good straight steers, never a heifer
and the boss had no use for me.' 'Who
took your job? 'The Judgu, Ponderer,
Caesar, etc. who at present is directing
affairs of state for the Democrat.' 'Did
he keep his job?' 'Xo.! 'Why?' 'Because
he suited the boss too 'well and brought
in one heifer too man-.' 'Just so we
all heard of that affair. His next ques
tion was 'Did you'ever while accompanied
by your jug bottle or anything of the
sort get enthused enough to slander a
woman?' I crossed my heart and said
'ho.' He turned me arouud to the light
where he could get a look at it and after
critically examining my nose said, 'Well
its all there and I guess yon are telling
the ttuth, and stopping rae on the back
he continued, lilt the rest of us yon
have sinned bnt that yon have never
slandered a woman covers a multitude of
sins. Here put your name on the regis
ter.' After my name was on the book he
nudged mo in the ribs saving. :Ycn havent
got a bottle with yon have you," whereat
I heaved a sigh and sadly said 'No. Judge
Ponderer, and Caesar were present at my
funeral and went through the corpse.'
Well I am settled here and- getting used
to things. My Bpecial duty is to keep
the flics off of Peter. A day or two since
I overlooked him putting some black
marks against Walt Mason's name, of the
Lincoln Call. I asked him why and he
said. 'Well I hated to do it but when Walt
let ont such a string of oaths I had too.
Yen see Mason had jnst read the Demo
crat and recognized Caesars effusions as
a garbled report of one of the articles
in the Call. It was enough to make him
swear. Tho other day Peter asked me
say, who is rnnuing the Democrat now?
I told him that the evidence went to
show that the Devil was running it in
which view he agreed with me. A day
or two since I ran across a lot of lady
nngels violently weeping aad in my
usual gentle way tried to comftrt them
but like Rachel they refused to be com
forted and finally told me the cause of t"eir
grfcf which wannat wiP heroine of Webster

rlnrse of their inprr. Aft r ron-Iiieiins the
matter I rnucluileu it was (.'iioimh to make un
