This Is not a year for personal ani

mities. Republicans should stand to

people. Wo haro not hoard of any
good reason why anyono should not

is surely not good republicanism to
voto for candidates who have spout
their entire lives and devoted their
boit efforts to helping defeat tho re
Wo heard onn of our republican
friends say muiio time ago that ho
thought ho would vote for the present
county clerk. However, since tho
present cotttv clerk lias shown his nut'
rowonlndctlncss and als that hi U will
lug to do anything to get a vote or two
by placing tho fusion ticket first on tho
ballot, that republican has changed
his mind. He now says that, a man
who would undertake to get a few
votes for his party through hitch an
titter disregard of the laws is not
vorthy the support of his own party,
and a republican who would yoto for
him assists in defeating the whole te
publican ticket. Republicans, remem
Under the present system of reform
the taxpayers of Webster county paid
in 181)3 the .sum of $.'80, mut in uinu
mouths of 18l0, tho .sum of tJUU 1, for ex
tra clerk hire, and this latter will be
Inei eased by 8lo0 for the last quarter
of 189;),. in all probability, as the extra
help is still there, which will make tho
total ?70r for Mr. llalo'n two year's
term. As compared with his predo
ceshor this record does no, show up
very veil for reform savings. During
llm four years under a republican in
this olllce tho tttUHttnt paid for extra
clerk hire was 9101.15. In other words
it costs tho county nearly twice as
much for extra clerk hire during onu
term of "reform" than it did under two
terms of republican rule. And still
tho present county clerk is s.iviug tho
county money. Had that money ho
drew as clerk of the county buatd re
mained in the treasury where it bo
longed, and had ho been compelled to
pay his deputy and extra clerk hire,
from his fees after lie had deducted his
own salary of 81,f00 from the fees also,
he would have had to tto without some
of this extra clerk Lire.
Some of the Savings Made by a Reformes
Reform economy is something that
in onlor to bu thoroughly understood,
requires a careful examination of tho
county records. What has reform
cost tho county this year. Let us sco
what claims have been allowed tind
warrants ordered drawn on the county
treasury for services in violation of tho
law and which money should now be
in the county treasury instead of in the
pockets of reform olllce scekeis, In
first placo wo will take tho extra ex
pense that has been heaped upon this
county by tho great reform leader of
present political campaign, our depti .y
county attorney. Chap. 7, Sec. SO of
tho statutes of 1399, says; "Tito conn
iy attorney may appoint one or more
deputies, who shall net without any
compensation from the county', to assist
him in tho discharge of his duties."
Now, this great reformer, in tho face
of tho first sentence of the law under
which ho wns appointed antt which by
virtue of Ids position he is bound
to uphold, has, notwithstanding tho
law says be shall have no compensa
tion, filed claims against tho county
and received county warrants as fol

THAT BURDEN STORY.
Considerable has boon said in dif
foront parts of tho county concerning a
story about tho evidence given by Jas.
Rttrden in tho Hout-Iiaye.s habeas cor
pus proceedings at Lincoln, by n party
of tho opposito political faith. Tho
story is that Mr. Bunion dollboratly
perjured himself and tried to got Rent
and Hayes liboratod from tho ponltou
tiary. Wo lmvo socurod from tho dis
trict court of Lancaster county tin ab
stract of tho testimony given by Mr
littrdon, who was tho only witness
sworn in tho caso, and that ovidonco
shows that it was on tho ovidonco of
Mr. Uurdeti tho two mou wore not ro
loasod. Tho point in tho caso was that
tho journal ontry Had not boon made
and tho proceedings In tho caso re
corded and that tho judgo had not
signed tho journal ontry nt tho time
tho two woro takonto tho penitentiary.
Tho ovidonco of Burden shows that
tho journal ontry was complotod on
tho 18th day of April, and iho mittim
us was Issued to tho warden of thopon
ltontiaryou tho 10th day of April,
but that it was not signed up by Judgo

o'clock. Tno sp:akiug occurred on an

tention of the crowd for about twenty
live minute and in that timu did not
make as favorable an impression or ad
vance tlio argument that was expected.
Mr. Rrynn's argument consisted of
roasting the administration and telling
funny stories, l'eople who went to
hear him and expected to hear the
democratic side of tho Issues pre
sented reasonably and logically were
not only dissatisfied, but in a number
of cases disgusted. To, toll tho truth,
during his remarks he received no ap
plause except from a very few (about
one dozen) of his most enthusiastic
followers, and when ho left tho plat

The marks left by pain are on the young faces of many of our
daughters. Pnin that leaves its mark comes from a curable
cause, it tnat cause is not removed us
inlluence reaches out and overshadows a
whole life. The reason Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound has been so uni
formly successful for over a quarter of a
century in overcoming the suffering of
women, is that it is thorough and goes
directlv to the cause. It is a woman's
remedy for woman a ills.
Miss Emily F. Haas, of 148 Freeman
St., Gree'npoint, Brooklyn, N. Y., writes:
"Dear Mks. Pinkiiam I wish to
state that I used your Vegetable Com
pound with the greatest success. I
was very sick for nearly a year with
hysteria, was down-hearted and
nervous; also suffered with painful
menstruation and pain in back and
limbs. I often wished for death,
thinking nothing would cure me. I
had doctors, but their medicines did
me no good. At last, by the advice
of a friend, I began to take Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
and I am happy to say it has entire
ly cured me.
Jennie Sherman, of Fremont,
Mich., Box 748, writes:
Dear Mrs. Pinkiiam:- I feel
that I must write you and tell
you what your medicine has
done for me. I had neuralgia
of the stomach for two years,
so bad that I could not do any
work. I had two or three doc
tors, but did not seem to get any bet
ter. I began taking Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound and Liver
Pills and improved from the first, had
better appetite, and after taking three bottles of Compound
and one box of Liver Pills, can say that I am cured. Your
