Miss Daisy Stoddard , of Republican
City , Neb. , is the winner of the first
Demorest diamond medal , offered in
contest for the best oratorical effort.
The contest occurred in Chicago on Oct
ober 11. Miss Daisy Stoddard , or as she
is best known at her home , "Little
Daisy" Stoddard , is an oratorical
prodigy. At the age of three years
she delivered an oration at Alma ,
Neb. , which astonished her hearers ,
and from that time she has been called
the "baby orator of the Eepublican
valley. " It was predicted at the time
that a blossom had bloomed in the
great American desert whose fragrance
and fame would extend far beyond the
confines of that desert , and the predic
tion seems to have been fulfilled.
Miss Daisy , after her state victory at
Norfolk , in October , had 153 invita
tions to speak at points in 'Nebraska ,
but refused them all , with the ex
ception of an invitation from Alma ,
where she addressed a crowded house
prior to entering the national contest
A gentleman from the Republican
valley , who has known the child
from her infancy told the Bee that she
possessed wonderful elocutionary pow
ers , was a perfect mimic and a won
derful actress. The people of Republi
can City , he said , were very proud of
her , and rejoiced in her victory. To
quote him : "The west wins again ,
and we should be proud of our child
During the evening session occurred
the national oratorical contest for the
first diamond medal offered in the
Demorest series of prizes , and Daisy
Stoddard , an eleven-year-old girl from
Nebraska , was awarded the prize
amid great applause. Omaha JJee ,

S. H. Colvin was in Omaha. Monday
evening , to attend a meeting in the in

which will start on a tour through the
east in about four weeks. Mr. Colvin
js making a heroic effort to have Red
-Willow co.unty represented in the train ,
which will exceed that of last year in
every respect. He should be assisted
and encouraged by all in his laudable
ambition , which will require great labor
and much expense in its preparation.
By , all means Red Willow county
fhould be a part of "Nebraska on
Wfieels , " when that notable train pulls

September 15th , over the Burlington ;
and if jwe are not in it , it will not be

jumped from the cars to save a ten rod
walk. Side by side lies the ethereal
creature who kept her corset laced up
to the last hole , and the intellectual
idiot who rode a bicycle nine miles in
ten minutes. Here reposes the doctor
who took a dose of his own medicine ,
and the old fool who married the young
wife. Right over yonder in the north
west corner the breezes sigh through
the weeping willow that bends over the
lowly bed where lies the fellow who
told his mother-in-law she lied. Down
there in the potter's field with his feet
sticking out to the cold blasts of winter
and the blistering rays of the summer
sun , is stretched the earthly remains of
the misguided regulator , who tried to lick
the editor , while the broken bones of
the man who would not pay for his pa
per are piled up in the corner of the :

boy who went in swimming on Sunday ,

gathers them in , one by one , and by

> ? /Vaa For Fair Play.
The stabbing affray at the Red Wil
low school house , last week , and the
outrageous treatment accorded Supt.
Bayston at Indianola , yesterday , are
samples of the savage spirit cultivated
by our Indianola friends , to whom the
idea of fairness seems to have absolute
ly and entirely given away to intoler
ance and buldozing. Emissaries of In
dianola daily parade the streets of Mc-
Cook unmolested charging our people
with all manner of crime. But the
friends of McCook are daily subjected
to insult and threatened violence at In
dianola and in the adjacent territory.
Such a spirit and such treatment are be
low the people of McCook and are a dis
grace to those who harbor and practice
them. THE TUIBUNE makes a pica for
fair play and honorable , manly treat
ment of McCook people and of her
friends by the people and the friends of

It is hardly probable that Commis
sioner Sam Graham will deny his own
signature , when he comes to consider
tne matter carefully and prayerfully.
It is hardly probable that he will.
The glorious soaking rain which pre
vailed throughout this section , Wednes
day afternoon , came in time and quan
tity to practically guarantee a corn
crop , at least that portion of the crop
which was well advanced. It came
softly and profusely. It was of almost
incalculable value to Red Willow.
Two of the handsomest and most
convenient court houses between Hast
ings and the state line are those of
Harlan county at Alma , and of Furnas
county at Beaver City. The fonnei
cost $13,000 ; the latter $12,000. The
sum of $13,200 will build Red Willow
county a splendid building which will
last her for years.
One of the pleasing features of the
county-seat removal question is the
spirit of sociability manifested by our
Indianola friends , who daily swarm our
city , to assist us in deciding how to vole
upon the absorbing question before us.
It also demonstrates the existence
among our Indianola friends of some
of the nerve and gall which stood them
in hand in the early seventies , when
they swore in sufficient illegal votes to
rob Red Willow of the county seat.
