The Chief .this week received a letter
from Keller N. Coplen, who formerly
resided here, being in the Webster
County jank, but who is now living In
Garden Grove, California, where he Is
connected with The Hunk of Garden
Grove. He encloses a draft for SI. 00
and requests that we send him the
Chief for one year, and states that
California is a real paradise, and that
Nebraskr does not look good to him
any more. Keller tells us he has been
in the bank there for about eighteen
months and is getting along tine, lie
states that he has bought him a fine
home, and Is preparing for his sister
and a friend, who are coming out to
stay with him awhile. While be does
not say so, yet by reading between the
lines we would judge that it was some
one else's sister Keller was preparing
for, and he intended to detain her for
keeps. Hotter write to us again,
Keller, and tell us the facts. We'll
promise not to tell.

The Biggest Joke
of the Year 1913
A writer in Inst Friday's Omaha lino
can come nearly as u1om to lolling tho
truth ut did the authors of Gulliver's,
I'ravols mid Aiahiuti Xighti, or In:
is too ignorant 10 bo worthy of notice.
In either cast he should not be taken
heiloiisly, and woie it not for tho fact.
that hU utterances are u dirty slander
on this pint of Nebraska tho editor of
the Progress would give little heed to
his falsifications. Tho very first
sentence of his jumble of misrepresenta
tions would be u real gem of comical
ity were It to appear in l'uck of Judge,
but it doesn't read well or listen bet
ter In a reputable dully newspaper.
Here it is: "As u result of tho drouth
that has extended over southern Ne
braska and Kansas this summer many
farmers throughout tho afilictcd dis
trict lire killing their pigs because they
luck corn with which to feed and ma
ture them," Now thut is quite a like
ly story when there are buyers on
hand to suap up all the pigs offered ut
live and six cents a pound. Even at
those prices the stockmen and feeders
around Franklin are unable to get us
many as they want. Conditions uie
practically the same here as elsewhere
in the South I'lulte country, and if a
pig has been slaughtered in Franklin
or adjoining counties it has been for
the purpose of providing n good tat
roast for u lamily thut is no nearer
starvation than was tho pig.
The joker winks oil" little more bile
in this wise: "In Red Willow, Webster
and sevciul other counties in that part
of the state wheio there is absolutely
no corn crop, pigs are positively runty
and a hog that sliinis signs of develop
ment is u curiosity." Here is some
moie of it: "And because it is im
possible to retain pigs and starve
them to death farmers are killing their
entire supply." That might sound
i easouable to persons utterly uufuml
liar with conditions, but wheu the
price of pork is taken into consider
ation and with corn no higher' than It
is such a canard is absolutely ridicul
ous. The greeny coucludes:
"The railroads which are suffering
from the drouth by laok of freight
busluess are working on a scheme to
transport hogs and pigs to farmers,
gardeners and dairy men who occupy
well chosen lands where they do not
have to depend on rain for moisture.
It is thought that muny places around
Omuha occupied by truck gardeners
and dairymen arc favorable to matur
ity of hogs, and if such is the case it
is probable thut scores of the small
pigs and shouts will be transported
from the drouth-stricken parts of the
state to Omaha for distribution."
Scores of pigsl That shows about
the calibre of the modern Huron Mun
chausen who is going to have the
truck gardeners and dairymen around
Omaha feed the hogs of the drouth
stricken district of Nebraska, when
all the truck gardens in Douglass
county wouldn't hold ono tenth of one
per cent of the lusty squeal of ourlOlft
pig crop. Franklin County Progress.
"Art" Robinson Given
A Real Surprise Party
Last Friday evening Art Robinson
and wife and Ernest Davis and wife
bad laid their plans to go out to Rube
Schult.'s south east of town, aud
spend the night and enjoy a few quiet
hours of fishing in the errly part of
Saturday morn. Uowever, when Art
went home to supper he was more
than surprised to find about sixteen
of bla immediate relatives present, and
it was some time before the young
man could realize thut his wife had
only sanctioned the said fishing trip,
as a means to direct his mind in other
channels, whllo she propared a sur
prise purty for him, the occusslon
being his 33rd birthday. Art soon
rallied from the shock and a sociuble
evening was spent including a real
birthday supper which carries with it
such delightful trimmings as ice cream,
chocolate cake, etc.
