The following i& the text of the annual
Thanksgiving Proclamation , which was is
sued by the president on Monday , 2fov. 1st :
'It has long been tiie custom of the peo
ple of the United States , on a day in eacli
year especially set apart for that purpose by
their chief executive , to acknowledge the
goodness'and mercy of (3od , and to invoke
Ifis.continued care and protection. In ob
servance of such custom , I , Grover Cleve
land , president to the United States , do here
by designate and set apart Thursday , the
25th day of November , instant , to be ooserv-
ed and Kept as"a day of thanksgiving and
prayer , on that day let all our people fore
go their accustomed employments and as
semble in their usual places of worship to
give thanks to the Ruler of the Universe for
our continued enjoynients of the blessings
of a free government , for a renewal of busi
ness prosperity throughout our land , for the
return which has rewarded the labor of those
who till the soil , and for our progress as a
people in all that makes a nation great ; and
while we contemplate the infinite power of
God iu earthquakes , Hood and storm , let the
grateful hearts of those who have been
shielded from harm through His mercy be
turned iu sympathy and kindness toward
those who have suffered through His visita
tion. Let us also , in the midst of our thanks
giving , remember the poor and needy with
cheerful gifts and uttermost deeds of charity
so that our service may be made acceptable
in the sight of the Lord.
"In witness whereof have hereunto set
my hand and cause the seal of the United
States to be affixed.
"Done at the City of Washington , this 1st
day of November , in the year of pur Lord ,
one thousand eight hundred and eighty-six ,
and of the independence of the United States
of America the one hundred and eleventh.

THE Holdrege Republican has some
what severe to remark concerning the
"fool friends of prohibition. " Milt
forgets his personal use for just that
"fool thing" prohibition , in the sharp
ness of his strictures there against.

are weary with calling attention to

if they could make England sober they

SHREWD a lawyer as Mr. TSlden was
supposed to be he seems to have made
a will so loose that some ten or twelve
million dollars he desired for the pub
lic use will eventually be divided among
his relatives. By a provision of his
will he devised the bulk of his property
to the. ' 'building and endowing a li
brary and an educational institution in
New York. " But the will then goes
on to declare that if the trustees "shall
deein it inexpedient" to apply the prop
erty or any part of it to "the said in
stitution , ' ' they are authorized to apply
it "to such charitable , educational and
scientific purposes as in the judgment
of my said executors and trustees will
render" the fund "most widely and
substantially beneficial to the interests
of mankind. " The supreme court has
declared that a man cannot delegate
such a power to a trustee.
WHETHER the work of anarchist ,
. communist , or madman , the discovery
* of dynamite bombs under a car in which
. innocent passengers had sat and per
haps slept for many hours is an addi
tional warning of the necessity of anti-
dynamite legislation by congress and
by all the states. And it is also a no-
* V
ticc to the public that it is time to
summarily squelch the Celtic dynami
tic shriekefs. .Murder by dynamite is
just murder by dynamite. No sympa
thy , for oppressed Ireland or oppressed
labor or oppressed capital or oppressed
anything else can make it otherwise. If
we hold that it is right to purchase dy
namite to kill Englishmen with , some
Pole or Hungarian may makelthe de-
* } , duction that it is not wrong to buy it
* 1to kill Americans with. The use , pur
chase , or possession of dynamite should
be conceded only to persons who are
licensed by state or municipal authori
ty. The possession of it without li
cense should be made a misdemeanor.

EVIDENCES 'continue to accumulate
that the year's corn crop is heavier
than at first reported. Last month's
government report placed the total
yield at 1,650,000,000 bushels , in ad
dition there remains from last year's
harvest some 350,000,000 bushels.
There is evidently to be no scarcity
this winter of our great western staple ,
in spite of the predictions of bulls and
the reports of speculators. A feature
of the crop which has an important
bearing on prices is the unusually prime
condition in which corn is coming into
the market. Chicago dealers report
that much of this year's crop is already
grading No. 2. Fine weather has al
lowed the kernel to ripen and dry , and
it is reaching the sea-board in competi
tion with that of last year's crop. Weak
ening prices are the natural result. The
prospect of stiffening value in corn this
winter are not brilliant. There will be
an ample supply for all domestic wants
and a full exportable surplus. This
means cheap food in the cities and
small returns on the farm. The rail
roads will as usual lose nothing. In
moving the crop the extortionate trans
portation middleman will see that the
lion's share of the difference between
prices at the country elevator and the
lakes shall fail into his capacious maw.
But the best prospect for corn in Ne
braska is that a larger amount than
ever befare will be turned into Jjeef ,
pork and mutton within the limits of
our own state. The number of cattle ,
hogs and sheep , which will be fed in
Nebraska during the present season ,
will exceed by many thousands the rec
ords of the best years of the past. The
ranges have been moved west but the
range cattle will winter among us , fur
nishing at a score of large feeding es
tablishments a ready home market for
our staple crop. Corn on the hoof dis
counts corn-on ear. It pays double the
profit of corn at the elevator. The
economic' problem of the day for farm
ers is condensation of product. The
experiment cannot be more profitably
tried than with corn and stock feeding.

THE railroad commission has for
several months been corresponding with
some of the corporations of the state in
the matter of the transportation of
sheep. It has been the custom to charge
regular stock prices for car loads of
sheep , whilenone but single decked
cars were used. The commissioners
have insisted upon the substitution of
double decked cars as soon as practica
ble , or a reduction of the charges , to
correspond with the charges made in
those states and by those lines where
double decked cars were in use. The
companies have complied with the re
quest of the commissioners , and new
schedules have been issued making a
double decked carload the standard , and
where they are not furnished , reducing
the chargesoncha'lf. This will be of
great service to the sheep growers and
will increase the sheep culture of Ne
braska. State Journal.

Last Friday morning , the Ladies' Aid So
ciety of the M. E. church gave a New Eng

pleasant social event of the season. At ai
early hour the guests began to arrive am

past. Handsome cakes , chickens , pies , the
old fashioned pumpkin pie of our grand
mothers , and other delicacies too numerou ;
to mention , loadedthe tables , and all tin

We noticed several of the High School pu
pils present , who seemed to enjoy them
selves very much : we especially .noticed Lev
Sanderson and some of the other most prom
Inent school boys , paying particular attcn
tion to the girls. After an evening of unlim
ited pleasure , the guests departed for home
and the weary workers gathered around i
table to compare notes and count the shekle. '
and were pleased to find their efforts hat
been generously rewarded , and we hay just
ly so. The affair was a grand success.
