The fact that my efforts in the past to produce
none but of the highest standard of excellence
have been appreciated by friends and customers ,
as shown by my large and rapidly increasing busi-
B ness , has encouaraged me to still greater exertions
" for the Fall and Yinter season.
My Collection of Pine Fairies ;
B , • For gentlemen wear , is now complete , and it will
: ' - give me pleasure to have you see my stock , 'which
m is as large and handsome an assortment of new

in larger cities. I am better prepared now to exe- :
m cute all orders promptly , and give the trade styl- ' ]

If railroad authorities will neither conduct
their oxvn business on decent principles and
with good faith townrd each other and lowaid
the stockholders and the public , nor observe
the lestrictions and regulation * laid down hy
law , the time will come when the government
will take the management of railroads into its
own hands , and that we should not like to see.
Tup. New York Voice sa.\s : "There is very
little hope for tctnpoiance legislation. " Thar
is true. The Prohibitionists of New York
united with the saloons and defeated Wiirner
Miller and elected Governor Hill , who is pledg
ed , to vote all legislation looking toward tem
perance. In no state of all the Union has the
Third Party Piohibiiinnists ever enacted a
single ' measure > f temperance legislation.

duced to sell out the sou. Then the daughter
took a baud , and now Spencer realizes that in
gratitude is a crime with the penalty aflixed.

A MiNiSTiuand his wife enteied a lawyer's

awjer granted it on the spot. He being a
judge as well. Then the woman wanted to
ray the lawyer and he s iid she could pay by
narrying him , and as the divorced husband 1
.tanding by. promptly assented to perform
he ceremony , they were wedded at once. In
• lew of this case it fa difficult to understand
vhy marriage may not be both a success ana
It appears troin statements recently pub-
ished that tlio railwujs of Prussia , owned by
he government , arc paying great and fast
rrowing profits. The net surplusfor thetreus-
iry or that kingdom was S17.000.000 in 1870 SO ,
md it has steadily Iiiciensed each fiscal year
intil. for 1837 88 it lcached $65,000 000. and the a
irofit for 18bS S3 is said to be almost certain to y
imourit to $77,500,000 Tin 's is an enormous net V
e venire to obtain from the railways of aterri- "
ory smaller than that or any one of several of r
mr slates. J
Thk county auditois ut Iowa have taken a
irautical aed simple method lor solving the
problem of it uniform basis for assessments
iT pioperty in the countiesoT thestate. They
net in convention and by comparing the dif-
erent rai.dcs of assessment , they have orer-
nmeihe confusion and embarrassment which
esultfrom the various methods now used ,
laving agreed upon a uniform and equitable
ihsis. tlio auditors urge all boards of supervis-
irs to enforce it upon the ns-essnrs of the va-
10U3 counties. Tlie county auditors of Neb-
aska could well follow the Iowa example in o
iriiiglug about a similar reroim in our own E
tate _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ =
Thk demand for the suitable regulation of
iiilroads in accordance with equity to all con-
erued is legitimate , but the spirit of hostility
lisplajed bv certain newspapeis in their eT- !
oris to excite a senseless prejudice to serve
mds or their own is not ouly mean but mis- j
hievotis. The people of Nebraska must
runrd against the growth of a sentiment that
unjust and calculated to impede the devel
ipmeut of our resources. Demagogues hero
ne doing their utmost to accomplish what has
iroved a ruinous poliej in other states. Just
roinds of complaint have been exaggf rated rj
md made the basis of glaring wrongs perpe
rated against corporations , with disastrous "
esults to the public interests. This has been
lotnbly true in Iowa , where a mistaken policy
las triumphed and crippled industrial pros-
terity. A quietus has been put upon railroad (
itiilding. and during the past year not a mile *
las been built in if state that has a greater ca-
iacity for growth and more need for railroad .
acillties in its undeveloped sections tbau any
ilher of the Western states. The people have
uincd the railroads already built , and put a
top to the building or new lines that won d h
ave opened up the remainder of the state to d
he markets of tbe country. e
