There aie two kinds of gills in the
world, the girl who works and the girl
who gads. Commend us to the form
er. Work lends dignity to a pretty
girl, Is an added charm to her. The
niil.whoworks.Ood bless her, combines
the useful ami the ornamental. She
might Ktid about, roll on sofas, gossip
and read story boohs, but she prefers
to be ot some account lu the world
and goes out as stenogiaphor, teacher,
saleslady or housekeeper, and bravely
makes her own way. Such are the
salt of the earth and of such is the
klumlom of heaven.

During the extreme drouth which we
have been experiencing during the
past throe weeks tme heard but little
grumbling. Nebraska people have
learned that nothing really nottnts but
the finish. However gloomy condi
tions may appear thete is the hope
born of past experience that a good
rain falling at any lime would turn a
failure Into a .success. We ffow know
that nearly ever .season we lose all of
our crops about six times, then we liar
vest an abundance. If we do not get
all we want we got all we can and the
world moves on. Perhaps no stale In
the Union can -how such marvelous
recuperative powers as Nebraska.

This Nan Not a Tax Hoiiinr.
"As n taxpayer of school district -of
tins county and h citlon of the
United States, loyal to all Its iaws
and regulations, 1 hereby ask you to
submit to me by mall before July I
Itlll, the amount of tax to be paid by
me for this year, as I do not want
anything against me, either by coun
ty, state or community. The reason
for asking this is that I will leave the
state the first part of .Inly, and like
to have all claims against me setllod
befoic my departure. As a compari
son, I can statu that my personal tnx
for 1010 amounted to S.'J.U."
The above letter, which was re
cpntly received by County Tieasurer
U W. K oo nt., plainly demonstrates
that there are some good, law-abiding
citizens still alive. Wo hear oo
much about graft, r.i'cality and cor
ruption Hint wc sometimes think that
the only good Indian Is a dead Indian.
Rut here and there one catches an oc
casional glimpse of uprightness and
loyalty whl ;h shows that it is still
fashionable lo be sipiare Wo hoar a
great deal about the tax dodger but
generally nothing about tlio thous
ands of loyal elticns, who llkm this
man, pay their just taxes without a
murmur or a protest.
