the saloonkeepers of the state will
not mourn, but rather rejoice.
Our legislature should pass a law
making husband and . wife equa 1 in
every legal respect in life or in death.
If either should die the other should
hold the same relation to the estate
and heirship the other would. The
marriage covenant should make hus
band and wife the nearest heirs of
each other on earth, in every respect,
nearer than father or mother, sister or
brother, eon or daughter,
decision of the United States court,
that a husband going into another

divorce, does not cut off the first wife's
claim is really commendable.

in payment of taxes. If other prop

paying any taxes railroads should be
t-.owed to play the same trick.
It is reported there are 1,500 cases
now on the docket of the supreme
court of this state. They will need to
appoint twenty more judges to ever
catch up. There are hundreds of law
yers in the state and a large slice of
them in Lincoln who are not gaining
a living by their practice. Nine out
of every ten would jump at the chance
of being side judge. The fifteen hun
dred cases can be made to last twenty
judges ten years.
If the party in power does not do
something during this legislative ses

he found he had been sleeping in a

done the drinking men should be the

be the son of a drinking man.

Me an' Jake growed up together,

both married doters of Zeke Jones.
Thi3 was 33 years ago this last fall.
We boarded with our folks first year,
then we heard about the free land in
Newbraska and we fixed up a. big cov
ered wagon and pulled out fur better
or worse. Ja. e and Tilda hated to part
with their folks and they couldn't
be blamed fur it; I think they liked
me and Jake all right, but since comin'
to think of it, it was callin' fur con
siderable re'clution on them to leave
the peace and quiet of their old homes,
fur what? They didn't know nor we
didn't know, but they cheered up by
the time we got over into Iowa and by
the time we got to the Missouri river
they seemed to like to look out and
see things we was passin'.
I nave been thinkin' considerable
about old times lately. Talk about the
brave boys in blue and Dewey at Ma
nila, I don't know whether they had
more courage than Jane and Tilda or
Tell the truth about it, me an' Jake
didn't have much money; we owned
three horses between us and the wa
gin; the most valuable thines we
owned was two of the best girls ever
grcwed up in Indiana. As well as I
can think Jake started with $31 to a
cent; I had close onto $28.
Fur a couple days after we crossed
the river there was scatterin' houses;
there was enough prairie layin' out,
but it seemed like the U. P. railroad
owned nearly everything that was
worth ownin'. The settlers told us to
drift off south of the Platte river to
find government land, and so we did.

Indiana where there was lots of logs

down in the dugout caves and we
made excuses to a settler and he in

r uch as any place I ever seen since
then; they seemed so glad to have us
come down to see them. They asked
about which way we come and about
our foil's. We went past where their
folks lived over in Illinois, but we
didn't know it We all got acquainted
right from the start.
They was bound to have us settle
near to them and the man (his name
is Bill Haines) went with me an' Jake
to the land office and we filed on
claims as close to Haines as we could.
Bill Haines and his wife and all of
us was about equal when it come to
what we was worth. Bill helped us
put up a sod stable and done the car
penter work to the dugout He was
carpenter because he owned all the
saw any of us had. It kind o' went
agin me to have somebody else do the
carpenter work, but Bill was so clev
er to all of us that I kept quiet about
bein' a carpenter myself.
