straight through the ceiling into the

brain deeply absorbed in thought
It was not an unusmal thing for Mr.
Clugston to be wrapt in thought. In

corner of Methuselah ntrcet and Nc

the Doodleville Yelper famous from
Blue town to Biggs' Corners, he had
often become eo deeply engaged in his
work that man after man had been
known to come in with a bill of some
kind to collect and go away again

But editor Clugston had abundant
cause for his mental absorption now.
It was a serious matter that claimed
his attention. On the table before
him lay a note which said:

Ieeit of that amount yoar package will be

Editor Clugston sat there till the

lit the office lamp, locked himself in
and turned inside out several old

editor bids farewell to this field of

Price of Liberty," and
Webster County, Neb.,
A Utile Taa Laraje
The foliowiag article was taken
from the state Journal iarslttiau to
the eoaditioa of our people and on
th face of it is a very bad aend-off
fur the county. As to the "12ftM
people" in the county who aeed aid
we would say for the benefit of tho?e
who are not acquainted with the facts
that "12,000 people'' ia about 700
more than the county contains, if you
take every man, woman and cli'ld and
all that arc expected in the ear-to
come. It is the opinion of this pa
per that there are not more than 200
actuallj in the concty, (if there are
really that many) who need aid, hence
the statement below is misleading.
The idea that the entire county is in
need is preposterous. Of course
taere are a number in the county if
they could secure heed for the spring
work, would be greatly aided
but as to a general aud iride
spread destitution as pictured ia the
article is wholly and unwarraatably
untrue and is a disgrace to Webster
county. All our farmers ask is seed
to get a start again; and they are
willing to repay that whea aaother
crop is raised: A
"WEBSTEE COUSTr'8 APPEAL.?
At an informal meeting of the state
relief commission on Friday it was de
cided that it was the duty of the
board to investigate certain reports
touching the receipt and disposal of
relief funds in two or three of he
western counties. The funds involved
mere contributions sent out before
the state relief board was created by
law aud were, therefore, the doaatious
of individuals It is claimed that
one aan in Dundy county"" received
upwards of 12000, for which he has
never accounted, and there is a strong
suspicion current that he has shoved
it down into his pockets. A similar
case is reported froa Red Willow
county. An agent of the relief board
will leave within a few days for those
counties to endeayor to secure an ac
counting from the parties.
The board will also send represen
tatives out this week to several coaa-
.tics now asking aid whose warrants
are worth 100 cents on the dollar,
and an offer will be made them to
take their paper for the amount of aid
needed. Webster county is men
tioned as one of these. The county
officials of that count-, through Con
gressman McKeighan, has presented
a petition for relief, claiming that 12
000 people arc in aeed of assistance.
When he presented the petition Mr.
McKcighao remarked that he thought
the figures somewhat Urge. In the
Iste election Webster coanty east
2,370 votes. It is believed by the
comaissioa that some distress stay
exist in that couaty, but it is hardly
prepared to believe that there are 12
000 such needy people there as the
board would be justified ia cariag far.
Phelps county also has a petitioa
in and the member froa that eeaatx
is haunting the ofiee f the board. A
meeting of Phelps coaaty people is ts
be Lcld on Wednesday aad the board
will have some oae present to lears
the sitaatioa. It has oaly hsaa a few
days siaee Phelps eoaaty applied to
the board for traasportatios for a lot
of relief goods it was seadiag ts Das
dy eoaaty. Aa offer will he Bade ts
Phelps eoaaty to aceept its warraats
for $12,000 if it aoeds the Baser.
