When You Buy
buy the best if you want to practice real
economy; there is no article of silver
ware so expensive in the end as depart
mental, hardware, or "general store"
We carry nothing but the very best
Sterling Silver and Silver-plated ware;
stock such as is found only in a first
class jewelry store, and yet our prices
are low, quality considered. We are not
satisfied to make a big per cent on a
single sale, but want the volume of busi
ness and advertising that comes from
selling good goods cheap.

Rush for Free Land.
Sidney, Neb., Feb. 7. Another rush
was mado on the United States laud
office, 20,000 acres of land having been
filed upon. Most of it is In Cheyenne,
Kimball nnd Deuel counties. This is
the land that was withdrawn from
entry last June on account of its pos
sibilities or being irrigated. Owing
to inclemency of the weather, many
settlers were unable to take advan
tage of the opportunity to file, but in
the next two weeks the 500.000 acres
which are still open will be taken.

Nebraska City, Neb., Feb. l. Mrs.
Lena A. Gallant, widow of the lato I
Philander JuiUm, baa Mout. sul'.
against the Tribe of Ben Hur to col
lect $1,400, the amount of a policy
held by her husband. In her petition
the plalhtiff alleges she has tiled
proof of her husband's death, but the
lodge has failed to pay any part of
the amount of the policy. Philander

who ate supposed to have been
drowned last March while duck hunt-'
ing on tho Missouri river and whose
body has never been recovered.

the Uniteu V-VA's district court hand- ,
ed down a decision in the case of Gen
eral L. W. Colby, former adjutant
general of Nebraska, exonerating him
from the charge of embezzlement.
Such at least is the result implied by
tho sustaining of the demurrer im
pleaded by his attorneys. General
Colby was indicted for the misap
propriation of some $2,000 or more,
proceeds of the alleged sale of a
quantity of blankets belonging to the
federal government and loaned to Ne
braska for use of the National Guard.
Hitch in the Telephone Merger.
Fremont, Neb.. Feb. 6. There Is but
little probability that the Bell Tele
phone company will succeed In ab
sorbing the Fremont company, al
though some of the organizers of the
latter company are trying to bring
about the merger. Some of tho stock
holders who had consented to tho
combination have withdrawn their
consent and are satisfied to let mat
ters remain as they are. If the com
pany sells out at all it will undoubt
edly be to the Independent company
of Lincoln, so that Fremont will still
be a station on the independent lines.

tions will be made to the court on be

GRAIN RATE SLASHED AGAIN.
Omaha is the Central Point of the
Chicago, Feb. 2. The railroad war
now going on between lines leading
from the corn boit to ihu Uulf of Mex
ico anil tre lines leading to Chicago
and the Atlantic seaboard was given
added Interest when the Missouri Pa
cific telegraphed a tariff to the inter
state commerce commission at Wash
ington, giving a rate or 11 cents a
hundred pounds from Omaha to New
Orleans, 10 cents to Memphis and
Little Rock and 5 cents to St. Louis.
When the war began the rates were
18 cents from Omaha to New Orleans
and 8 cents from Omaha to St. Louis.
Then came a number of reductions,
the last being 13'. cents from Omaha
to New Orleans. It was this rate
which the Chicago lines met when
they announced the through rate of
18' cents from Omaha to New York.
If the Chicago roads meet tho last
cut of the Missouri Pacific thoy v
have to make a rate of 10 cents from
Omaha to Now York.
The action of tho RoeR Island,
which was followed by the Chicago
and Northwestern, in cutting their
rates from Iowa points to Chicago
1 to 4 cents a hundred pounds,
aroused more Interest among railroad
men than any move heretofore made
in the war.
At the ofilccs or the Rock Island It
was stated that the reductions weio
made simply to protect the Iowa farm
ers against the extremely low rates
now being made from Nebraska
points. The Rock Island's new tariff
Is from Iowa points to Chicago, while
the new tariff of tho Northwestern is
from Iowa points to the Atlantic sea
board. Cossacks Use Bayonet.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 8. The lull In

spondent at Tslntschechid describe

communications to Feng Wang Change
and causing a panic among the Japa
nese. General Kouropatkin reports that
a detachmont of Cossacks, command
ed by Prince MagalofT, attacked a vil
lage occupied by the Japanese tho
night of Feb. 5, bayonetted fifty men
and retired without sustaining loss.

Alliance, Nob.. Feb. 8. For th ft

on tho best sldo of zero. This closes
tho longest spell of continued bitter
weather that has been experienced
hero In seventeen years. There Is no
groat amount of stock suffering re
ported. This Is accounted for by tho
better shed protection that exists
throughout tho Btock country. The
prospects hero and west aro that the
cold snap Is at an end and that better
weather will prevail.
