\ F. M. AND E. M. KDDIELL , Editors and Publishers , i THAHKSGIVING DAY. 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.

Workingmen find it I difficult to vote on their way to and irom their work. With the day a holi- . day. there would be no difficulty found in securing a full vote. 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. LORD CHIEF JUSTICE COLEUIDOE of England , ia quoted as sayingJudges are weary with calling attention to drink as the principal cause of crime , but I cannot refrain from saying that if they could make England sober they would shut up nine-tenths of the pris ons. ' 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 f 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. , Chicago Inter-Ocean. 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. Omaha Bee. 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. HARD coal at Lincoln has gone up $11.50vper ton. The Democrat of that city feels constrained to the opin ion that the entrance of another big railroad or two into the state capital would probably raise the price to $ K- > . Pleasant are the ways of competition wherein is no competition. ONE of the greatest difficulties which the speaker of the next house of repre sentatives will encounter will be the se lection of-capable men for committee chairmanships. More than half of those occupying these positions in the present congress , were retired by their constituents. IT there is to be a county in the state without a railroad twelve months from now. all signs fail. Nebraska will see more railroad building in 1887 than she bas witnessed in any one year of her liistory.

EDUCATIONAL , The substantial brick building for the Citi zens bank is nearing completion. The pupils of this school will he glad to learn that May O'Brien is convalescent. On Monday , the 2oth of this month , the new nfusic books were tried and gave greai satisfaction. . We think gambling should be preventei on the school grounds at least as much as on the streets. Monday of this week , schpol opened ii the new building recently finished for tha purpose , with Mrs. Smith installed as teacher On the 20th of this month , nine pupils ii the high school department were examined in spelling. Great excitement prevailed , as the successful ones would give up the study. Although the words were long and difficult all but nine passed , and we offer them our hearty congratulations. On last Saturday afternoon , one of the most exciting foot races ever witnessed bj the reporter , took place on-the farm of Mr John Everts , one mile east of town. It was between two well known champion hunters , and owner ofsaid farm. For further partic ulars inquire of Wilcox , Clyde or Helm. Last Friday morning , the Ladies' Aid So ciety of the M.
