It may be that Joe Critchfield is noth

evening , while trying to keep someyoung
men from going up to the hall to hear
ihe temperance lecturer , but the people
of McCook have a warm place in their
affections for the "damned fanatic" and
will give him a warm welcome any
time that he may return to this city in
temperance work. Here's success to
cranks and fanatics.
For secretary of state the republican

looming their candidate , Frank Sprague ,
editor of the Rushville Sun , simply be
cause he is a newspaperman. Of course
a newspaper man is always the choice
of the Lord , but they are not the choice
of the people every time. Mr. Sprague
may be a smart man , but he has not the
ability , the official experience or the
strength to fill the secretary of state's
chair as acceptably as Mr. Allen. This
s one reason why Mr. Allen will be
elected and another is that he stands
close to the people and their wellfare.

RED WILLOW IH ILLINOIS *
Friday night , Sept. 26 , we packed an
exhibit of farm produce for the Illinois
slate fair , which took until 2 o'clock-
Saturday morning. On arriving at
Peoria , a conveyance was hired and the
exhibit transferred to the fair grounds ,
when coat was shed , sleeves rolled up
and work commenced in placing the ex
hibit. The counties of York , Holtand
Red Willow of Nebraska occupied one
half of the entire hall. While the ex
hibits of York and Holt counties were
more extensive than the one from this
county , still the fine wheat and corn
and the mammoth proportions of the
vegetables of Red Willow attracted more
attention than anything of the kind in
the hall. The size of the sugar beets
was a subject of almost constant remarks
of surprise , expressions of astonishment
and the question was often asked , "Did
these things actually grow out there
this season without irrigation ? " A
common and frequentremark was "Why ,
from what I heard. I sunnnsed that von
' 4 A v
had not raised anything at all out there
this year , but this don't look much like
it. " A gentleman said , "From the re
ports of your country I supposed there
was not a bushel of corn raised in lied
Willow county , this season. " We were
asked "Isn't it a fact that people in
your country are actually-suffering now.
for the ffantof something to eat ? That
is the report here and we supposed it
was true. " Our exhibit did more to
refute these ialse reports than any
thing else could have done. In table
beets there were fourteen entries , but
there was no hesitancy in giving the
first premium to Red Willow county
beets. We also took second premium
on sugar beets , and there were eight
entries. While Red Willow occupied
one-sixth the space of Holt , we took
two premiums to Holt's three. There
is a different impression in regard to
this county now , and several expressed
their intention of visiting this section ,
this fall , with a view of locating. To
such we extended a cordial invitation
to come and look over the country.
COL JOHN SOBIESKI ,
The temperance speaker of renown ,
lias no cause for complaint about the
warmth of the welcome accorded him at
the opera house , Monday evening , nor
as touching the number present to hear
his plea for the prohibitory amendment.
The audience was large and representa
tive and the enthusiasm complimentary.
The Colonel attacked the last redoubt
of the opposition business and prov
ed by an array of facts and figures quite
overwhelming and convincing that the
business "proposition of the opposition
is as lacking in foundation as the bottom
less pit. That prohibition is not and
cannot be inimical to the business in
terests of the community or state.
That the liquor trafiic is a pirate on the
seas of legitimate commerce , and is al-
iogether unlovely. The attendance and
interest manifested indicates an awak
ening among our people on this vitally
important question , and the outlook is
more favorable for the amendment in
this city. And with the work now in
jrogress and contemplated there is
jvery reason to expect a liberal supporter
? or the temperance amendment in No-
HARLAN AND NETTLETON.
A large and enthusiastic audience
greeted the appearance of Hon. N. V.
larlan and Hon. D. M. Nettleton at
the Opera House , last Saturday after
noon. Mr. Nettleton was the first
speaker and his somewhat extended re
marks on the land grant , transportation
and other questions of the day , were
istened to with marked attention , and
were received with evidences of appre
ciation and with intelligent applause.
Mr. Nettleton is made of sturdy Repub-
ican stuff and the situation was put in
a fair and manly way that carried con
viction to the hearer.
Mr. Harlan , whom the reader will
recognize as "our next congressman , "
'ollowed "Clay county's favorite , ( but
lomely ) son , " in an able and eloquent
address , dwelling principally and at
ength upon the question of finance , the

ent attitude on that much mooted mat

and an appeal to the voters of this sec-
ion to stand up boldly and unitedly in
the support of the party and its principles.

munerative than it is here. Nevertheless ,
the Count , who during his long stay here has
nade many warm friends , was loth to leave
Oberlin and all our citizens , while congratu-
ating him on his promotion , are most hearti-
y sorry to lose him as official , citizen , neigh
bor and friend. It is hoped that he and his
most estimable wife may often return to visit
us and they will always be sure of a royal

Probably the most eflicient and comprehen
sive railway-signal system known has recent-
y been invented by W. W. Kosenfeld of N. T.
city. By this system an alarm will be sound
ed in the cab of a locomotive when it gets on
he same block with an other train , when it
approaches a misplaced switch , an open draw
bridge , a broken rail or a rail lying across the
tracks. Not only will the alarm be sounded ,
but if desired the air brakes may be turned
on by the same signal , providing for the safe
ty of the train ever against the engineers
carelessness or possible incapacity. Mi.
Rosenfeld has secured the American patents
on this invention and has applications Hied
4n Europe. ' ' * " ' J- * *
