The Basis of Socialism ,
Four philosophers sat about a round
table in a hostlery Sunday afteruoonj
and discussed the signs of the times'
as they quaffed their lager.
"I tell you , " said the" bloodthirsty
he" made semicircular
philosopher , as a -
lar incision the size of a barrel top in
a cheese sandwich , "I tell you , and
you mark me , that the Cincinnati riot
is only a premonition ! There are
jloody days before us and they ard
lot far away. Outraged man is cry
ing to heaven for vengeancej and
iieaveii failingto interfere , he will
avenge himself , and his revenge will
a fearful one. I feel the tinle approaching
preaching , and when the downtrodden
den majority turn upon their oppres
sors their will be riot and carnage
jefore which the horror of the reign
of terror shall pale into insignificance ,
met when that time comes I shall lead
the avengers ! I am a socialist from
jeginning to end , from first to last ,
* rom Alpha to Omaha ! The fire of
insubordination antt socialism are in
ne ! I am full of it ! "
"And I am with you , " declared the
youthful philosopher. "I am full of
it , too ! "
"You're both of you fuller of beer , "
> bserved the skeptical philosopher.
"Well1 the drunken philosopher
emarked , with a sage hiccough , "beer
ish the basish of socialism , anyway.
Tht'ish all rigsh. " New York Times.
Jx consequence ! of the fast mail
service contract with the government ,
the B. & M. are intending to at once
commence placing their road bed be
tween Plattsmouth and Omaha in
rock ballast order over the entire line
which runs along low lands in the
, -alleys of Missouri and Platte rivers.
is a gay and festive
ifcy , and festivals are all the rage
with the people. Within a few months
she has had opera , dramatic and mus-
c festivals. Now comes a "circus
festival , " to be followed by a nation
al cat show. Cincinnati is nothing
if not mewsical.
ILIFF , COLORADO.
Cattle on the Frenchman and North
Fork of the Republican.
ILIFF , COLO. , April 1,18S4.
Northwestern Live Stock Journal :
Have just returned from a trip on the
Frenchman and north fork of the Re
publican , and have to report stock thin
in flesh , but have plenty of rustling
Grass and water are good on the flat
between here and the head of the
Frenchman , and a good many cattle.
On the Frenchman , down to the TO
ranch , grass is rather short along the
creek and some cattle are bogging
down. General J. L. Brush has an
outfit of men at the head of the creek
watching weak cattle.
At Benkelinan , Neb. , I met Ben.
Mourning and Dan Powell in from the
south fork of the Republican. They re
port having been down on the Smoky
river opening fences to allow cattle to
go south to the Arkansas. They saw
but few dead cattle in that country.
Jim Mourning , foreman for McGillin
Bros. , also was at Benkelman.
From Benkelman up to Haigler there
are a great many cattle doing very well ,
all things considered.
From Haigler to the head of Chief
creek there are a good many dead cat
tle , owing to the closing of the gaps
left by the railroad in its fences by par
ties who have large pastures itt this
part of the country.
From the head of Chief creek to Ak
ron cattle are to be seen all over the
prairie , and as all the buffalo wallows are
full offfate'r they are doing first-rate.
The loss in this section of the coun
try is confined to through , yearling anc
cows heavy with calf. . The reason why
those two classes suffer most is-obvious
to any one who has given the subject
any thought. Tfie first are over driven
from Texas to this jilace/ and the lat
ter , thanks to the policy of allowing
bulls to run the year round , have to
justle to support two when it is difficult
for one to exist- ,

REV.V. . L. McGiiEW , of Somerset
ountyj Pa. , is said to bo the best rjfltf
shot in Am'erica , performing all of'
Carvdr's and Bogardus' feats- and aV
! jreat manj others they never at
tempt. A irian has to be mighty
handy with a gun to be a successful
preacher in some countries. The rev- ,

Texas and Arkansaw. Burdette
Tun.Supreme Court of the United
States has decided that a man who isr
accustomed to having mord than one"
pair of breeches may bring a second
pair home with him from a foreign"
country without paying duty oil them j-
even if he has not worn them ; and so"
with his wife's petticoats : , But thtf
poor devil and his wife , who are not
accustomed to having new clothesj
must pay duty on what they don't
wear , they cannot bring into the Colin-1"
try more than their ordinary supply.-
But suppose the wife wears the"
breeches , will some astute lawyer tell
us how the decision of the United'
States Supreme Court would apply
in such a case ? " Bee.
that is born into this world
is of few days and chucked full of
trouble. He cometh forth as a big
sunflower and is cut down , and where
is he ? Conundrum. Now the evil
days come in which he shall say , , "I
have , no pleasure in them , " for in a
few-short days the wife of his'UBsom
will be cleaning house , and he will
have no place to lay his head.Frorii
the rising even to the going down of
the sun , he will be monkeying a'roundj
raking the yard burning straw and old
rags , and feathers , and government
socks , and raising an incense more .
"ragrant than the inside of a wigwam ;
ETe will draw water , and carry coalj
and beat carpets , and fill bed ticks- ,
and put down carpets , and swear and
Dlack stoves , and whitewash } and
scrub , and. cuss- , and paint , and make
limself generally obnoxious. He will
stand it a day or two and then , some
iime when his wife isn't looking , take'
a fish pole , and a little bottle of snake '
jite antidote- , and some worms } a hunk
of codfish batej and a small portion
of spirittis fermenti , and go out tcf
bave a real good time with the boys.
X can be good and happy with
out fortune and without fame and"
without church membership , but he"
cannot reach any good in the path of
the drunkard. That vice attacks at
one time the money and the body And
the brain of its victim. It leaves
nothing untouched. As the molten
lava rolling down into a tropical val
ley scorches all things and leaves not
a leaf of green and not a drop of
water or dew , but transforms a para
dise into an. iron rock , so the passion
for strong drink blights the young
man's world , and leaves just enough
of body or dust or memory to catch
a mother's or a sister's tears. Gam-
blino' and other sins ask for and receive -
ceive their quota of victims , and our"
age , with a generosity perfectly in
fernal , hands over an annual payment
of thousands of souls , but compared
with the ruin wrought by drunken
ness the injury from other" vices is
slight. But for this one evil partly
come and partly impending , we could
make a tolerable analysis of the young
man of to-day , and could read with
delight the most probable page of the'
morrow. Had this one vice kept away
from earth- the wound of the serpent
in the garden of Eden might havo"
seemed curablej-bUt the cup of ardenfi
spirits having come into the" world
of almostber -
the sorrows man seem - -
yond remedy. -
