Webster County Neb., Friday, September 13, 1889.
The following touching lines en
titled "Caesar's Lament" are respect
fully dedicated to his "Nibs. " 4
An editor of Bed Cloud
Was lying, nothing new,
He wasn't feeling very pert,
In fact was rather bine;
A comrade stood beside him,
And wiped away a tear,
In hopes the editor would see him,
And order up the beer.
The "dizzy" editor faltered,
Aa he took that comrades hand:
And he said, I neverwaut to see
My own, my native land.
Take a message and a token,
To my friends just take a tale,
I am out of place in Red Cloud,
I've lost cast in Inavale.
Tell my partners and companions,
When together th6y all get,
To hear my mournful story,
By HartwelTs big whey vat,
That I fought the battle bravely,
And when the day was done,'
I found that I was badly scooped,
By that bloody Man in the Moon.
He touched me up on every side,
He just danced upon my toes,
But I'd haye lived through all of that,
If he hadn't touched my nose.
But now its done and finished,
My very worst is said,
His hand is spread, thumb to his nose,
And I think I'll bag my bead.
Tell Mrs. B. not to weep for me,
And sob with drooping head,
When the Man in the Moon comes back
With glad and gallant tread;
But to look upon him proudly,
With a calm and steadfast eye;
Oh, why did I ever shoot at him,
For me he is too high.
And if the school board ask her
Just tell her in my name;
There's no one there to insult her now
Or make her her cry with shame;
And to hang this motto on the wall
In letters long and broad,
"Ha that slanders women
Will most surely not see God."
There's another, not a tid bit,
I wish I was in Guinea.
When 'ere I think of that mash of mine,
Wicked deceitful Minnie.
For this earth I thought she was too
For an angle sure I took her,
It makes my tears run dowa like rain,
She played me for a sucker.
One consolation though I've got,
I wasn't there for health,
I just put in experience,
She got none of my wealth .
Tell her last night I drempt of her,
We were together just onee more.
It was a happy dream to me,
Add Tve drempt it oft before.
Another thing dear comrade,
That I've never told before,
As I never like to speak of it,
It makes me rather sore.
A wondrous tale I did invent,
It caused a heap of bother,
Fd surely ne'er had said it though,
Had I known she had a brother.
Dear comrade take this word of mine
To the boys in Inavale,
Be aura you're right then go ahead,
totalling such a tale.
Ah, the whole thing is slowly drying out,
Why was I such a loon,
To jump upon that wayward youth,
That wicked Man in the Moon.
His voice was getting hoarse and thick,
He sadly dropped his head;
Says he, ''Let's go across the creek,
And paint the country red."
His comrade tried to stop him,
But he found that he had fled;
He left a word behind him,
And this is what he said,
I have monkeyed with the buzz saw,
Found it running on fall time,
And I wish I was in Guinea,
Or at "Bingen on tne Rhine."
The comrade rose up slowly,
Says he a mice I've smelt,
I Ions have thought and now I know,
Caesar wears the .belt .

W. B. C at JtlllWankee.
Some of the delegates met the head
quarters train at Omaha, in which we
tound Mrs. Morgan the department
president of Nebraska with a part of
her staff which wis increased by oar
presence. The gentlemanly passen
ger agent of the C. M. & St P. R. R.
was with us, and fcunday nc lnvueu,
the department president and her
staff to take dinuer with him in the
dining car and set before us the best
menu which we all enjoyed immense
ly. On arriving at Jlilwauljcj we
found no arrangements for our enter
tainment, so. each one had to look out
for herself. Five of us found a place
where we could get three adjoining
rooms and we had high times. Mil
waukee is a clean, white beautiful
city, and it was beautifully decorated.
On Tuesday was the great parade, but
it was only about half as large as the
one at Columbus, Ohio. Wednesday
morning business commenced with an
open session of the convention. Wo
were addressed bv the governor of the
state and the mayor of the zity and
seveial others of the u. A. it. aiso
some of our own distinguished mem
ber, were presented, and made short
speeches among them were Mrs. Joha
A. Logan, and the famous Clara A.
Barton. The second day came the
interesting time., the election of offi
cers, I have the assurance to believe
that I aided materially in electing
that grand old army nurse, Mrs. Annie
Kittenmcyer for national president.
She was elected by only two majority
and iust as we were coins: to vote, I
found that two of our delegates had
their ballots written for the other

preaident I am happy to state we
elected Mrs. Jelmma Manchester of
Lincoln, Nebraska. How much of
that election is due to the delegates
from this state. You can imagine for
yourselves, wse succeeded and that is
all that is necessary to state. Friday
night at twelve o'clock the committee
adjourned to meet next year in Bos
ton, Massachusetts. After packing
our grips we slept an hour or two and
started on an early train for Chicago,
where we commenced reluctantly to
separate; one going one way and one
another until there were only three
of us started for home together, and
came as far as Marion, Iowa, when I
took a train coming to this place, Ot
tumwa, Iowa, where I am at the pres
ent writing. The fruit crop here is
the largest it has ever been for years
but I have seen no corn like the Ne
braska corn. 1 has been dry here
for the past two months till last week
there was a little rain. Ottumwa is a
beautiful city being sitnatcd on nearly
as many hills as Rome. But with all
its advantages, and it has many, I
prefer my own adoptel state, Ne

The big 8 outflt are not contented with trying
to get their hands into tfcu county treasury
aloce, hut in order to do so they arc knifing
their own men ia order to make the treasury.
The following comersaUoa was indulged In
during a little attempt to capture a certain op
ponent: Say let ujioh old and lot him
come into the convention with as many votes
as he can, he can't get there anhow and III
be d d if I wnll vote for the old under
any circumstances. The above N a fact and
there is not the least doubt but what thcyare
kuiflng every friend for the purpose ol getting
control of the treasury. Wo staud ready to
prove the above as an assertion ma Je by one of
the big 3, which we :onii!er a mean, low, dirty,
coutemptable underhanded ;nune. It may be
politics, but It Is only the kind that comes from
such unprincipled men as eoinjKwe the big 8.
