THE good people of Minden thought ,
last spring , that they would conduct the
affairs of that city without that num
erous educational institution through
out the state the saloon. Minden ,
like all such places , had a class of out
laws who facetiously imagined that a
very cute thing would he to sell the
"red licker'1 an } how. Recently Judge
Gaslin took a hand in the game , and
the result is thus depicted by an ex
Last Saturday vras a day of terror to a cer
tain class of people in Minden , the capital of
Kearney county. The village government
was elected by the temperance vote and re
fused to issue license to sell liquor. Not
withstanding such was the case , a number
of men kept open "B. B. " shops , while drug
gists freely and frequently violated the law.
The city authorities WeTb unable , by reason
of some defect in the ordinances , to deal
with the yses effectively , and nothing ap
parently could be done about it. Judge Gas
lin held court at Minden , last week. The
prosecuting attorney and the grand jur }
gave the cases of liquor belling a thorougl
overhauling. Nineteen persons were dul >
indicted , and the causes came to trial on Sat
nrday. The first case was that of a salooi
keeper. He pleaded not guilty , stood tria
and was convicted ou three counts. Upoi
eighteen other count ; there was no trial
When the jury gave the verdict the judg <
told the prisoner that but for nn agrccmeu
by the district attorney to the imposition o
a fine of § 200 the court would put it unto
him to the tune of 31,500 , the extent of the
law. But under the circumstances he woulc
make the fine § 200 on one count and suspem
sentence as to the other two. "But , " con
tinued the court , "if I ever hear of your sell
ing another drop of liquor. I will have you
brought into court and fine you to the exteu
of the law on those two counts , and don'
you forget it. " The next case was that of a
druggist , lie was convicted in short order
and the judge opined that S500 and costs
would be about the right thing , especially as
the counts were not by any means exhausted
The other indicted people who had been ar
rested scrambled over each other to get to
the bar of the court and plead guilty. The
total collections were § 1,700 , and the schoo
fund of Minden received a substantial boom
It is needless to say that the trade in liquo
iu Minden is effectually squelched.
THE following petition is being circu
lated by the W. C. T. U , women of the
state for signatures. Everyone shoulc
sign it. It should and doubtless will re
ceive merited attention at the hands oi
our law makers :
To the Senate and House of Representatives
The increasing and alarming frequency o
assaults upon women , and the frightful indig
nities to which even little girls are subject
have become the shame of our boated civili
A study of the statutes has revealed their
utter failure to meet the demands of tha1
newly-awakened public sentiment which re
quires better legal protection for woman
hood and girlhood.
Therefore we , men and women of
, state of , do
earnestly appeal to you to enact such statutes
as shall provide for the adequate puHishmen
of crimes against women and girls. We also
urge that the age at which a girl can legally
consent to her own ruin be raised to at leas :
eighteen years ; and we call attention to the
disgraceful fact that protection of the person
is not placed by our laws upon so high
plane as protection of the purse.
Literary Note from The Century Co.

gone up to over 30,000 copies In sir weeks

edition of December will be issued on the
15th. A veteran New York publisher predicts

will RO beyond 300,000 before tho completion
of the Lincoln history. The January install
inent , which is said by the editors to be ot
most surpassing interest , occupies thirty pa
ges of the magazine , and treats ot .Mr. Lin
coln's settlement in Springfield ; his practice
of law In that city ; the Harrison campaign ;
Lincoln's marriage ; his friendshipwith the
Speeds of Kentucky ; the Shields duel ; and
the campaign of 1884. The illustrations arc
numerous. Including portraits of Joshua
Speed and wife , of Mrs , Lucy G. Speed , Milton
Say , President Harrison , General Shields ,
William H. Herndon ( the law partner of Mr.
Lincoln ) , and Mr. Lincoln himself , from the
jhotograph presented by him to Mrs. Lucy G.
Speed , in 1861. Pictures are given of the
louse where Lincoln was married , also the
loufie where he lived alter his maniagc , etc.

If you are in any way interested in the
subject , experience of Mr. A. C. McGrew , a
merchant at Manhattan , Iowa , may be of
value to you. Head what lie says :
"About a year'ago I was very sick with a
severe attack of lung trouble. 1 tried a great
many physicians , and they all told me I had
quick consumption , and I was entirely given
ip , so weak I could hardly walk. I travel
ed all through Nebraska and Colorado to
ry and get relief , but without effect. Often
imes after a severe spell of coughing my
riends would cover me up , expecting every
momeut I would breathe my last. I was then
brought back home , and as a last resort ,
'like a drowning man catching at a straw , "
. ' began using Chamberlaiu's Cough Remedy
and the result is , I am strong , healthy and
veil , attending to my business. Chamber-
ain's Cough Kemedy I shall recommend as
ong as I live , for to that 1 owe everything. "

Under the head of "Well-Known People , "
a Plttsburg paper has a paragraph on Gen
eral Stambouloff. The general may be a
cry well-known person , but he is neither as
well nor as favorably known as Colonel
Standemoff , of the United States of America.
Mr. Cutting says that he is backed in his
3Iexican scheme by Chicago capital amount-
ng to 518,000,000. Mexico , it will be re

A "Bear" in the Book Market.
People generally have supposed that The
Literary Revolution brought tho prices of
books down to the very bottom. Tho suppo
sition was a mistake. Alden has recently
made a reduction all along the line a reduc
tion so great as to be n startling surprise t
book buyers , and an amazement to book pub
Ushers ! He says continued reduction in cos
of manufacture , and a continually wldonin ,
market warrant it. He says still lower price :
are possible if purchasers can be sufficient !
multiplied it would seem as if heweroboun
to make a customer of every one who cai
read ! Tennyson's "Enoch Arden" for 2 cent
Guizot's Franco 427 fine illustrations , reduce
from $34.00 to $4.50 , and so on , ad infinitum
A novel scheme which he has recently pu
forward to tempt book lovers , is a "Provlden
Book Club. " which secures each member
JG.OO library for installments of . " 0 cents
month , or n larger library for proportional
payments. His new C4-page Alplmbctica
Catalogue is a very wonder in its literary at
tractions it and particulars of that club an
sent free to any applicant. Address , JOHIi
