The serious illness of John G. Whittier -
tier will create a feeling of sympathy
and regret throughout the country ; but
this will not be accompanied by surprise
or shock , since the good man has lived
the full measures of human life and
has himself been waiting for years for
the inevitable change. Few lives have
been as a whole more satisfactory to
their possessor , more blessed to friends
and country , more unbroken by storms ,
convulsions and reverses , fuller of that
heavenly message , peace and good will
toward men. Mr. Whittier has never
known the most common of painful ex
periences , especially in our country
the severance of ties of home and resi
dence. He has never strayed or wan
dered from his native home ; when the
end comes he will die in his nest. A
few years since a picture was distribut
< ed as the advertisement of an insurance
company , but so unobtrusive was the
advertising portion and so great was
the artistic value of the picture that it
was framed and preserved in many
households. It comprised the portraits
of men famous in the science of litera
ture of NewEngland. They were Long
fellow , Hawthorne , Lowell , Motley , Al-
-cott , Agassiz , Holmes and Whittier.
All are gone now save Whittier and
Holmes , and it may be that when this
announcement is made in the printed
page the bright "Autocrat of the Break
fast Table" may be the sole survivor.
.It was a wonderful and worthy company.

not keep the fourth commandment on
Sunday and break the eighth command

an honest debt to make a donation. He
is not in favor of temperance for other
folks and a glass today for himself. He
ioes not exhort or pray at each of the
few meetings he attends to make up
arrearages for the more meetings which
lie neglects. He does not consume his
spiritual fuel during revival seasons and
be as cold as Nova Zembla during the

It is an evidence of prosperity and
increasing confidence in their ability to
pay , when farmers demand a stipulation
in their mortgages allowing them to
make partial payment each year of the
life of the mortgage and notes. Until
within a couple of years back they have
not been expected to make any payment
until the whole amount becomes due.

Meanwhile there is still some space
available for counties that may wish to

make this display ofthe products and

The chief of the government bureau
of statistics reports that as the result
of reciprocity the combined value of
exports of cotton , breadstuff's , provis
ions , cattle , sheep and hogs , all classed
as agricultural products of 1892 , ex
ceeded the reports of 1890 ( just before
reciprocity was proclaimed ) by $159,238-
323 , and exceeded the average annual
value of these exports for the ten years
previous by $215,955,639. These are
gigantic figures , but are exactly true.
Such an opening of southern markets
to these products cannot fail to have a
direct beneficial effect upon every farm
er in Nebraska. There is no politics
in this matter , it is simply business ,
but this business and this commerce
are the direct results of policies inaug
urated and legislation passed by the re
publican party and denounced as fraud
ulent and false by the democratic par
ty. These are the facts as they must
speak to the farmer voters of America.

Give Themselves Away.
E. W. Howe of the Atchiaon ( Kan.
Globe paints in the September Forun
a picture of the bond voting mania ii
these words : It is an old truth , bu
only old men seem to understand thi
particular importance of honesty , sim
plicity , and order. Young towns , liki
young men , are constantly trying cxperi
ments , only to discover that the old wa ;
is so much better than any other tha
they are at last compelled to comi
back to it. Much has been said as t (
whatsis the greatest pity ; I think it i ;
that young men and young towns do no
accept the lessons of their elders with
out the punishment of experience
Most western country towns are guilt }
of all sorts of mistakes , because few ol
them have reached years of discretion ,
However wise a man may be in his in
dividual capacity , and however wise he
may have been as a resident of an older
community , as a citizen of a new town
he votes bonds with the recklessness
that characterizes young men in giving
notes , forgetting that payday will in
evitably roll around and that they will
probably not be prepared to pay.
Many of the great fortunes in the east
were gifts from communities in the westj )
The people conspire for months to get
control of their valuables in order that
they may give them away. If there is
a valuable franchise in a western coun
try town the people usually manage to
give it away , the recipients being men
who have probably been victims them
selves in some new community. "

in 1832. and the last time 1873.
With , this large percentage in fav
