THIS AND THAT.
Wlui thus become of tho boy who, ou
his way to nut I from school, used to take
on iiihiiumiuu uow iiouiuiy iovuurnuio
people when ho utet them? And tho
girl who courtcslcd prettily under tho
Humooii'ctmistnucusT And whathns be
come of tho men who used to atop uud
baio their heads reverently when a fun
oral cottage was passing? These were
tho questions tho writer propounded to
himself when the remains of un old re
spocted citizen of tho city were being
burne through the street to his linai
rest. On this occasion the small boy
was crossing tho street recklessly iu
front of tho hoarse, Imlloolugnttlto top
of his voice, and tho thoughtless, Irrev
erent business ninn was driving pell
mnll by tho procession of mourners,
wliilo tne eager ami oxclteu politicians
wore standing ou every street corner
pouring forth billingsgate in a bIiuiuc
ful manner. None of this was iuten
tionul disrespect, but. a matter of care
lessness and alack of culture tint used
to be practised by our good old fash
ioned fathers and their boys who had
been and wero being disciplined along
theso lines by the teachers at home
and in public schools. A little more
respect to our dead would bo a tribute
to tho good men who lived wheu the
men of today wero boys. Atchison
Wo call tho attention of our new "re
form" mayor to tho following article
taken from tho Seward Made. Wb.il
reading it he will probably pondor ovor
which promise to make good: "Jim
Franey, who has been manager of the
South Platte creamery, suddenly threw
up his job aud left town the first of

Saturday. It is said that Farnov was

of any town whero it is permitted, us
more or less of the patrons of such

not do their duty if they do not make a

S. I Slems was iu town Saturday,
and, as usual, lie was shipping eggs iu
every direction. Ho bundles nothing
but singlu comb White Leghorns, of
the purest and finest .strniu. Saturday
lie shipped eggs to California and
Alabama. The 10 is lint a state in tho
union but has received shipments from
our great chicken breeder. Mr. Slums
informs tho Argus that ho may sell his
lino farm out ou Shell creek nnd buy a
piece of land closer to the city, out of
which ho will make ono of the most ex
tcusivo and finest chicken ranches iu
the Unitcil States. Think of it. Ho
has uearly half a thousand busy laying
hens, and yet he cannot get enough
eggs to supply the ever growing de
mand at 11.50 a setting. All of which
poiutsto amoral: Mr. Siems has tho
chickens and the chickens do the lay
ing, but if it was not for tbo dollars bo
invests iu advertising he would hml it
difficult to peddle his eggs at 7, 8 and
10 cents per dozen. Columbus Argus.
Another railroad hero is added to
the list of gallant follows who hare
sacrificed their livesttosave the lives
of others. At Trenton, N. J Isaac
Slack, a freight conductor, saw four
cars break loose from a train ho had
just left and start down tho track for
a head-end collision with an approach
ing passenger train. He made a rush
and succeeded in climbiug to the top
of tho first car and iu putting on tho
brake. It was too lata to mvnt. th
collision, and the shock throw him to

"The rocky road lo Dublin" is not in
it when compared with tho "rotten"
road between the II. & M tracks and
tho river bridge. Tho fliM culvert
smith of the track is enough to scare
any horse and keen it from goiug over,
aud tho rest of tho road is, in many
seasons like the pnsttwo weeks, a con
tinuous mud hole uud at tlimm covered
with water to a depth of from six to
eighteen inches. By a small atnountnf
work with plow and scraper a ditch
could be dug to the river aud all tills
surplus water conducted to the river
instead of having it stand on the pub
lie highway and await tho sun to dry it
up. The road on tho ponth side of tho
river is in the same pitiable condition
where a few hours work with a spado
would dig a ditch to tho river which
would run off all the water and leave
a good road all the while.
They tell a good story now on ox
candidate Dry an. While cast on a
recent lecturing tour he visited one of
the In.aane asylums and among other
wards, visited the ono in which those
who are about cured ale kept. Ho was
soon accosted by ono of these Inmates,
who supposed he had been brought in
as a patient, and he said to him:
"Well, what's your fad? Yon havo
one of course." "Oh yes," roplied Mr.
Bryan, "I am for the freo and unlimit
ed coinage of botli gold and silver at
tho ration of 10 to 1, without waiting
for the aid or consent of any other
nation on earth." ''Why," said tho
convalescent patient, "you am not
crazy, yoa'ro a d d fool." Albion
A special correspondent from the
south side says that a man near Me-
Cok lias enclosed a quarter section of
land with a rat tight wire fence, on
which he will raise 1.000 stacks of
black cuts and 0,000 rats on which to
feed the cats. It is estimated that the
cola will increase 15,000 iu two years.
Dlack cut skins aro worth II each.
The ralM will multiply live times as fast
as the cats. The cats uau feed ou the
ruts and the rats can feed ou the
skinned carcasses of the cats, and n
sure fortune is in sight for the McCook
man. Curtis Courier.
