There are hitfh tarilV doiuoerats and
low tarlir republicans and on all other
questions thoy areas radicallydivlded.
U the peoples party tliero are no sueli
divisions. When a man declares that
ho is u populist, every one knows what
his position will he upon all the load
ing questions of the day. In any use
of tho term as heretofore employed,
the peoples independent parly is tho
only political party in tho statu of Ne
braska. I'olk County Democrat.
The Woodman play deserves more
than passing attoiuion in as much as
it will be a play put on by our homo
people. It is a good strong play and
tho participants are working hard to
make It presentable. This community
is certainly big enough to provldo near
ly all its own amusement without Inn
ing to depend upon outside importat
ion. Any activity which will develop
our own talents along any line ought
to receive the utmost encouragement.
It is very gratifying to Webster
county that IJltie Hill and Bladen
havo taken progressive stops. Uluo
Hill has voted to install electric lights
and Dladou has voted to have water
works and electric lights. This will
give both of those places lire protection
uud tho appearance of. thrift. Fire
protection is not a luxury it is an ab
solute necessity. Now if Guide Hock
will get in the procession this county
wilLbo in a position to oiler excellent
inducements to prospective citizens.
Decayed fruit and vegetables thrown
in the streets and alleys breed disease
and llys. Even the main streets aro
uui exempt from thoughtless people
us one can see this litter almost any
time, on our streets. Tho manufacture
ot giHiit lly traps is n laudable industry
but a much better one is to deny tho
lly a chance to breed. This can be
done by keeping all our streets and
alleys clean. Now that we know mote
about tho lly and his dangers we ought
to use every precaution to get rid of
him. Tho condition of our streets and
alleys respectfully submitted to the
mayor and couucll.
We often hoar men say in excuse for
their ignorance that they never hnd
"a chance " Now the majority of men
who havo become noted, made the
chance for themsol ves Where there's
a will there's a way, you know, and
the boy who determines to be some
thing and does not lose heart In the
struggle, generally accomplishes his
end. One may have a great many wlso
and ambitious thoughts but If not
followed up with perseverance and in
dustry, he will nover amount to much.
A thing amst be wholly done and woll
done, if one would have fame and
prosperity. Education Is the great
preparation that materially ilgurcs in
llfo's success, and our High School Is
making extensive preparation to give
every young man and woman in the
county a "chance in the race" at a
very small outlay.
A farmer should remembor that hit
wire is a business purinor. hiieiniiKes
the butter, boards tho hands, helps
prepare things for market, is a watch
dog for the premises whon he Is away,
and sometimes assists wit li tho poultry
and gatiloiKund when ho secretly signs
away money she has helped to earn,
he is choutiug Ills partner, as well as
robbing his wife; and It is an ollonso
the law would not tolerate in any other
co-partnor.ship, nor should'it In this.
There is a law that pro vents u man
from soiling his farm without his wlfo's
signature, and It sounds as if n wife
wan of somo importance; but it is rend
ered non-otVcctlve as a preservative of
her home from the fact that he can
mortgage It and endorse other men's
papers tunny extent without Iter know
lcdu or consent, uud tints dispose of
tliufitmlly possessions, and the sheriff
can sell, and she has no rights that he
It bound to respect. This statute is
mockeiy until It is supplemented by
auoMier making a man's signature, as
securitv, invalid when written without
his wife's approval; and still another
making It illegal for him to mortgage
tho farm to pay debts that she has lio
The Democratic candidates for con
gress are exceptionally strong this
year and they are putting up a united
frontof reforniund progress Maguiro
in the First, Loboek in the Second,
Latta in tho Third, Mood in tho Fourth,
Sutherland in tho Fifth and Dean In
the Sixth are the men who are bearing
the standards and they are all men of
known ability worthy of tho support
of an Intelligent people. With candi
dates such as these the Democratic
party has much reason to congratulate
Itself. Indications are strong that the
standpatters will gain control of the
republican party and that will mean
tho continuation of "the best tarilflaw
over innoted", tho policy of Aldrich
and Cannon, tho Interests against the
people. The regulars are in control
and mo even so strong as to defy ex
president Roosevelt. How important
it is therefore for the people to uphold
these democratic candidates who aie
bitterly opposed to the sysic.m and all
A Word About Tho SchoolsIt is a
mistake to teach children a little of
everything and nothing throughly.
About all education can do for u man
or boy is to set him to thinking for
himself. Tho germ of originality in
tho individual needs cultivation need
stimulant. The head crammed with
other people ideas has little room
for its own thought Many a boy is
so throughly schooled that the com
mon sense, the will power, tho self re
liant manhood, is driven out of him.
A load of facts with no education in
their use is of little value. The most
successful business men in our cities
are thuso whose scanty education em
braced a thorough knowledge of situ
pie rules and studies, but whose nec
essities have since demanded vigor
ous thought, incossent industry and
the best use of every ressotirco of
mind and body. Tho hotbed system
of education enfeebles rather than
strengthens. Only a few require the
classics astronomy or a knowledge of
the dead languages.
An Improvement Association.
Whllo all the towns around us aro
forming associations of their business
men for the purpose of improving the
towns, what is the "reason that ofir
town can not have one;' It will cost
nothing to meet once in two or four
weeks and talic ovor the stttiiation.
While it might not be much to boom
tho town, yet wo should got better
acquainted with one another and with
one another' wants and wishes. A
community of bplritoreutes an enthus
iasm which is vory apt to display it
self in some direction. Theoldsaylng
that everything comes to him who
waits, may have been true in the old
time, but under the spirit of tho pres
ent age if a person wants a tiling ho
must go after it. Wo believe there is
a go-ahead spirit enough in town to
carry an improvement association
through to good results if it wore only
startod; and wo also boliovo that after
It was fairly started the good effects
of it would be felt immediately. Per
haps not as some cities have douo in
getting great branchesof industry to
settle here, but in plans for beautify
ing and improving what wo have, nnd
in being roady to embrace opportuni
ties, if any should come. An associa
tion of this kind, it seems to us, would
be pleasant and prolltablo, even if not
much In tho way of "boom" came from
it. Will not some of tho business men
make a move in the matter'.'

and relatives, albo tho Masonic lodge

TEN GOOD REASONS FOR
Your home merchants can duplicate the prices made by any responsible
concern auywhero on goods of equal quality, in the same qii'intitie and
on the same basis of delivery and payment.
You can examine your purchnses in the home stores and be assured of
satisfaction before investing your money.
Your home merchants are always ready and willing to miiko right any
error or any defuctive article purchased.
Your homo merchants help support, through direct and Indirect taxation,
your schools, churches, libraries and other public institutions.
Your home merchant helps mako a good local market for everything you
havo to sell, and that market more than any other factor gives your
laud its present value.
Your homo merchants are your good friends, ever ready to extend a help
ing hand in time of need.
If this community is good ctiough for you to .ive in and make your
money in, 'tis good enough to spend It in.
Tho best citizens in this community aro those who believe in and prac
tice home patronage. lie one of the best!
Tho merchants in the distant city give you nothing valuable that the
homo merciutnt cm not glvo you uud the former euunot and will not do
for you many things the latter do gladly.
Every dollar kept iu circulation in this community helps Increase property
values. Every dollar sent out of this community thnt could us well be
spent hero hinders the wheels of progress and helps build up some other
community at your expense.

Only a Dollar New.
The Lincoln Daily Journal has out
ils price to a dollar from now ttntill
January 1. 1011, without the Sunday.
The big Sunday paper will be added
for only a quarter extra, therefore
most people will no doubt take the
Si.'-Ti worth. This makes an exceeding
ly low price during a specially inter
esting time. As nearly every family
will want a Lincoln paper during the
next few months. The State Journal's
reputation as a free, independent,
clean newspaper will prove of special
advantage during the warm campaign
now begun. The paperstops when the
time is up without any notice from
you whatever, so that you see it is no
plan to get you started and then foice
the paper on you.
Uixby, the poet-philosopher ot The
Journal, is worth the price of admis
sion himself Slate telegiaph is a
strong fealuieaiid sportingcranksare
well sat i.slied Tho thing above ull
others is the fact that when you see
anything political in Tho Journal that
its for the benefit of the people at
large and not for the selfish political
interest of the owners. No booze ads,
no misty medical ads, no fraudulent
Investment schemes. Fact is, its the
kind of n paper you want iu your turn
ily. Why not try it a dollar's worth at
this cut price'.'
