5 SOME RAMBLING THOUGHTS..
TO YOUNO MEN IN LOVE(!!llll Artl-
clo):-Ailm!tt!ug the truth of all I said
to you Inst week ubout the compelling
force of lovo anil Its moulding In
fluence, so strango that purified
thought has forced out grossness, so
transforming that music is in your
soul and poetry on your tongue, so
volcanic that tlio crust of sclilshncss
thick over your heart is rout asunder
and a stream of thoughtfulncss for
another gushes forth admitting this,
I say, you must coucedc another fact
that cxlsits In every Christian ci liga
tion. Every young follow, no matter
how lowly or lofty, no matter how un
educated or learned, no matter how
badly or well brought up, gains from
his feeling of devotion to ono dear wo
man choico of his heart a glimpse at
least of the real grandeur of living and
a ray at least of the sunshine of lite
possible to all of us forever and ever
through woman, tho weak-strong com
plement of man. This gift of better
understanding of tho responsibility of
existence comes to all who truly
love; with some it lingers for aye, with
others it vanishes liko the dew on
a summer morning. But to all it
comes; whether treasured or disregarded.
Fleas now for here my heartfelt
appeal to yon whose steps-arc springy
cut conviction that perfect love con
sists as much in communion with her
dear mind and spirit as it docs in
seeming contact with her precious
body. I know you have felt this way
and ought to still, for you like to think
as she docs; opinions and beliefs ex
pressed by her tender lips and bright
oyes have become for awhilu more
real touches of divltio wisdom than
you think you ever heard before. Of
coutso she is not tho wisest mortal, but
tho effect on you is just as good as if
she were, for it diaws jou to her sido
and you both rejoice in being together.
If this feeling can be mado to last,
your future will bo ono of beautiful
growth in wisdom and happiness.
OUR EASTERN VISITORS.
To avoid the misery I depict, bear in
mind that lire is a good servant but a
frightful master; that the added free
dom of marriage will havo a tendency
to confuso your thought so that tho
minor function a function whose
gratification has not hcretoforo been
essential to your happy communion
with her is in dauger of becoming tho
tnaior feature of the united lifo. In
stead of being a subordinate enjoy
ment, merely added that the mental
and spiritual attachment may bo more
nrrftly welded, it will, like a cuckoo in
in the home nest, grow and fight for
the mastery of all and will succeed un
less you watch. Tho abuse of the
physical duties and privileges will,
like the scorching heat of a desert,
destroy the fragrance and delicacy of
life. The dividing line between love
and tart k easily crossed, and then,
with hope must Jbegin look around like a paralyzed king in thelower floor
yon. Look well at many ol thoso wno 01 ms inree-sionea paiace, it win do
haviag loTed each other and truly,
years ago passed into marriage, a state
which in your present feeling seems
the one thing above all others to bo de
sired. Study them closely, for mayhap
you are looking in a prophetlo mirrorl
The youth of ten summers ago goes to
his daily duties now like a machine,
and like a moro machine ho turns
homeward at night. Buoyancy has
disappeared. Ho plods much liko a
horso plods, with no motion taken un
less forced to it by extovnal necessity.
Whore ho once obeyed a gentle voice
with alacrity, glorying in sacrifice,
leaping to hor tasks, (he was just as
sincere as you are) ho is apt now to
grumblo at even tho harncsaing of the
horso for her to drive. Ho approaches
tho maiden of ten years ago more often
with complainings than with praise.
At eventldo ho wraps himself up in
silenco, doiug nothing to enliven tho
hours or away ho goes to tho society of
tho club or tho grocery or tho saloon
or worse. Tho ordinary courtesy
prompted by civilized feeling towards
women is forgotten when with his wife,
and ho linds In marrlago merely per
mission to be rude to one woman with
out fear of rebuke. Tho fragranco of
love that exists in tiny attentions like
opening tho door, raising tho hat, and
saving choico portions for her at tablo,
has evaporated and left no traco be
hind. If occasionally ho (his namo is
logion)l thinks backward along tho
way ho has traveled, his puzzled heart
will admit with a groan that no mat
tnr how sweet tho uncertainties and
hopes and dreamlngs of courtship,
marrlago with its knowledgo and
intimacy has scattered all. Sunshine
has been followed by gloom; tho rosy
tints of the dawn of love by tho un
relieved stretches of a dun colored
So lads, though you are likely to
dony such a thing and probably ready
to arguo with mo most vigorously
about it, there is a possibility, not very
remote, if wo may judge from othors,
that your heart's feelings wlllchango
and tho glorious oasis you aro resting
in, (capable of becoming a beauteous
kingdom under your care,) will witness
your back turned on Its pleasures aul
your face set towards a dreary, desert
journey, Uko the ono you have traveled
before you found your dear lovo. As
follows traversing but once tho path
way of life, letiiis talk with our hearts
hard to reach the higher stories of her
mind and spirit, in whose beauties you
once gloried. Whero there is a com
plete surrender of tho best of each to
each, there will never he contentment
with grossneas; tho completion of lovo
will remain lofty and sanctified. But
whero the act degenerates into lust, it
becomes as unlovely as tho satisfied
grunting of breeding swine. Then our
little Eden will become closed to us by
the Uaming sword of tho outraged
When cultured Atlianit, art's historic (lower,

Land Owners of Illinois, Indiana and
Ohio Come tq Sec Nebraska's
At 4 p. m. yesteulay tho Burlington
5pecial train of eastern land agents
and prominent farmers from Ohio,
Indiana aud Illinois pulled into the
depot hero on its trip of sight seeing
in Nebraska. Tho train consisted of
a day coach, two Pullman sleepers the
"Persia" and "Napier." Tho object of
tho excursion is to acquaint tho people
of tho eastern states with what Ne
braska is aud what it offers to tho far
mer in the way of productivo lands,
tho best of markets, its schools, its
towns aud its unmatched climate.
Tli cro is llttlo time lost in cities. The
land, tho country and tho crops ate
what tho excursionists wish most to
sec, and they aro afforded an oppor
tunity to seo nil tho hours of daylight
in tho week practically without look
ing twice at tho same placo. C3
The excursionists aro the guests of
the Burlington and they aro invited
lor tho singlo purpose that after a
wcok they may know for themselves
and for tho benefit of all inquirers just
what Nebraska is. They havo been in
vited from many localities, largely in
Indiana and Illinois, but with a num
ber from Ohio.
It is a novel enterprise on the part of
the Burlington but none the less ad
mirable. It will be appreciated by tho
peoplo of the state as well as by the
guests themselves for the peoplo of
Nebraska are proud of their state nnd
prond of tho magni&cant showing it is
A practically completo list of them

It was tho object of the Burlington
to secure representatives for this ex
cursion from as wide a torrltory as
possible, and how well thoy succeeded
the many places in tho states named
There aro some sevcnty-Jivo of tho
guests nnd they aro representative
men of thuir localities. There aro
two-thuds of them farmers, practical
farmers, successful farmers, who know
what good soil is, what good lands are,
what crops ought to bo and who can
tell just what crops aro and how sue
cessful farmers aro in this Btate. A
glanco through the cars shows them to
be substantial conservative men, men
of middle age, men of affair, exactly
tho kind of men that the statu wants
and that will do thestato good in tho
use of the information they obtain.
W. C. T. U. Convention.
Tho tenth annual convention of tho
ninth district W. C. T. U. met in tho
Christian Church of lied Cloud, An?.,
11th and 12th. Delegates were pres
ent from tho unions of Bed Cloud,
Hastings, Hoseland, Ayr, Blue Hill,
Cowlcs, Inavale, Franklin, Blooming
ton, Napouec, aud Olivet, Kansas.
Miss Flora 11. Cassel of Hastings, con
ducted tho music and sang some very
tiuo solos of her own composition,
some of them snug for the first time in
public. Site also presented each dele
gate a "souvenir" of the convention, a
song lcallut containing some seventeen
different songs, ono of them the dis
trict song, composed by Dr. Cassel, to
bo sung at tho stato convention which
meets iu Kearney next Octobor.
Tho vice president of tho stato W. C.
T. U., Mrs. A. M. Bunting, was pres
ent and helped greatly with her words
of wisdom, presided nt tho election of
officers and Thursday evening gave an
interesting nnd witty account of her
trip abroad especially her visit to
Switzerland and climbing the Alps.
Memorial services wcro held for two
members who hud died during thoycar,
Mr. C. A. Hansen of Blue Hill and
lWotliRrM Mnrernn nff Pi-nsjnr.
A telegram of greeting was received
from Mrs. Bense of Fairfield, state
superintendent of "Purity in Literature
and Art," also three dozen 'booklets'
containing the pledge of the "inner
mission."2Some thirty took tho pledge.
Tho election of officers resulted In
Mrs. L. S. 0. Brakefield, president;
Mrs. Allco Pope, corresponding secre
tary; Mrs. Lina Logan, recording sec
retary; Miss Nellie Ownes, treasurer.
Nominees to national convention to bo
bold nt Buffalo, N. Y., to bo confirmed
by tho stato W. C. T. U Mrs. Brake
field with Mrs. Cassel alternate.
The meetings wero all pleasant and
profitablo though too much of tho pro
gram had to be hurried or left out en
tirely. It was voted to hold the next
convention two full days.
Tho most skillful and daring bur
glar who over carried on his nefarious
business in Webster county is again at
large. After making a successful op
eration an tho store of Fuller & Good
at Cowles, escaping with tho plunder
into Kansas, being taken by Sheriff
Bunchoy, making a during and clover
cscnpo.tand then being again capturod,
Jack Kiddie with his companion in
crime, William Scott, escaped from
tho county jail on triday night last.
Friday night the sheriff was obliged to
go to Lincoln about a case of insanity
and tho thieves, undoubtedly apprised
of tho situation by some outsider,
probably a resident of this city, effect
ed their cscapo some time during tho
night. Tho cage doors and tho main
doors of tho jail wcro securely locked
as usual but in some mysterious way,
probably with the assistance of a com
panion on tho outside himself a profes
sional, tho keys were procured nnd tho
delivery effected. No blame can bo at
tached to tho sheriff since be took
every possible precaution for safety
during his absence, Mr. Hutchison, tbo
marshal, having visited tho jail fre
quently during the night and partic
ular, care being taken to seo that tbo
locks wore all fast.
Tho cscapo only makes plainer the
absoluto necessity of experience and
skill iu tho sheriff's office. Pos
sibly no more crlmo will bo committed
for a long timo, but when it is there
should bo men in charge who know
the possibilities of escape.
A Chicago man has written a book
attacking the evils of tho day and
winds up a paragraph on childless life
of fashiouablo marriages as follows:
"I would rather bo a squatter on a
western prairio, living in a dugout,
llghtiug floods and fires with a truo
woman beside me, than live in a palace
in Chicago with a fashion plate for a
wifo and a poodle dog for a child."
Although thero is a quotum of the
cabinet in Washington, tluno is an air
of vacation dullness mound all tho
government departments. Secretary
Sherman Is at his olllco every day, but
siuco he has had to deny .so many news
paper Interviews, ho will only talk In
monosyllables tothosuwhoaro allowed
to get iu to seo him. Attorney Gon
oral McKenna is wrestling with a
tariff problem reforretl to him by Sec
ictaryOago, who is also In town, for
an opinion, and he has listened to
arguments on ono sido by Ex-Secretary
Carlisle and Ex-Assistant Secretary
Hamlin, the first representing tho
Maine and Boston It. U. and tho latter
Boston business organizations. Secre
tary Wilson, is as usual, hammering
away on routine mat tots and uot in
clined to couit publicity In any way.
According to an official documont
signed and mado public by Assistant
Secretary Boosovelt, an exhaustive re
port made bj Commander Davis, has
shown that those who charged that
everything was not conducted just as
it should be at tho Brooklyn Nnvy
Yard wcro merely dreamer) of troubled
dreams, or words to that effect. Mr.
Roosevelt even goes further, as may be
scon from the following extract from
his official comments upon Commander
Davis' report: "But it is evident thnt
tho real reason for tho attacks upon
Mr. Bowles (the constructor In charge
of the Brooklyn Navy Yard) is to bo
found, not in the tact that bo has done
badly but that ht baa done well."

tho reinstatement in office of Miss
Minnio McMllIin. who was dismissed
by Chief Clerk Logan Carlisle while
the controversy between his father,
then secretary of the treasury, nnd Mr.
Blackburn, then senator, was at its

not been convicted of crime, keeping
them out will bo no easy job. But Mr.
