It long ago seemed ns though
shoes could never be better and
never be cheaper , but they are
better now and cheaper now than
thev ever wore before. The great
* * 3
every day favorite is our men's
and ladies' shoe. It is as much a
boon to the pocketboolc as it is to
the feet. It won't wear you out
to wear it out. You don't need to
take care of it ; it takes care of
itself. It will give you solid com
fort for the simple reason that a
better shoe for knockabout pur
poses has never been produced.
If prices never appealed to you
before , the price of this shoe will ,
for it costs only $2.50. It will
look nicer and wear longer than
any shoe on earth.

That Nebraska farmer who raiset
1,100 bushels of potatoes on five acres
this year proved that he knew the ad
vantages of diversified farming. Tin
price of potatoes is high while grain is
away down. Nebraska soil appears to
be well adapted to almost all crops urn
the time is not far distant when the
farmer of this state will raise a little o :
everything. If more of them had po
tatoes to sell this year it would be a
good thing for the state.
Invention is at a white heat contin

Thompson-Houston-Edison company
has by great good fortune stumbled
upon an appliance whereby platinum ,
the most expensive material used in in
candescent lights , can be superseded
with iron and the cost of globes greatly
reduced. Furthermore , another inves
tigator has invented a globe that will
be made in sections so that if the glass
breaks it is only the work of a minute
to detach it and put on a new one and
everything goes on as merrily as before.
This is good news to the consumers.
Mr. Sheridan presents his side of the
scraper case in tbis issue of the
Courier. He naturally makes the best
defense possible. Mr. Sheridan may
have no great ability as a statesman ,
but his ability to smooth things out is
second to none , and yet there are bad
breaks in this scraper deal. Mr. Sheri
dan admits that he was aware that the
price was too high. Then why present
his bill until the matter was adjusted
between himself and the wholesale
house. Besides this Mr. Sheridan had
already a month's time and it requires
scarcely more than a week to get a
reply to a letter written to any part of
the United States. We will , however ,
accept Mr. Sheridan's statement as uncolored -
colored , and we find upon his own
statement that he charged the county
$45.04 profit on $127.76 , which he
claims is the cost of the scrapers as first
billed , including freight. Mr. Sheridan
had but $10.26 invested yet he charges
the county nearly $4.00 profit on each
scraper. Mr. Sheridan says he refund
ed the $88.80 without any demand.
This may be technically true , but he
will not deny that members of the
board came and talked to him about the
matter before he returned the $88.80.

Sheridan's Story.
To the editor of the Indianolt
Courier. DEAB SIR :
Your political and uncalled foi
attack on me in the Courier ol Get
14th , and the manner and toneofyoui
write-up of the article on the scrapei
question , together with the many mis
statements made in jour column and
a-half article , injustice to myself and
my friends , calls for more than pass
ing notice. Will you be so kind and
do me the justice to publish facts con
cerning this matter , omitting any
slander or abuse that might appear in
this article against yourself or your
character as a business man , or any
thing that might appear in the article
that would injure the character of the
parties at the court house or the bank
that arc aiding in making this attack
without sufficient cause and written for
political purposes only.
The plain facts are these. In July
I Bold to the county commissioners ,
Mr. Belles , and Mr. Graham , twelve
No. 1 road scrapers with runners.
They asked me what 1 could furnish
them for. I told them 1 could not
tell what they would cost now , as I had
not bought any of them lately ; but 1
would guarantee the price and make
the price as low as they could get the
same scraper of anyone. 1 ordered the
scrapers at once and the company bill
ed them to me at fifteen dollars each ,
making the scrapers at their price ,
$180.00 , with thirty five per cent dis
count , making , with discount off , $117.-
00 , drayage , 50 cents ; freight , $10.26 :
total , $127.76. 1 thought this price
was too high ; but it takes time to get
these things righted when they once
In the meantime I billed them to the
commissioners ai list price from the
catalogue with ten per cent off , calcu
lating to make price right when I got
settlement with the company , and just
as soon as I got settlement with the
company I corrected the same to the
county without any demand from any
of the county commissioners or anyone
else , and made the price seven dollars
each or eighty four dollars for the
No. 1 scrapers with steel runners ,
You misstated my bill to the county in
your article. My bill was for 12 No. 1
steel scrapers with steel runners , and
not 12 scrapers at sixteen dollars with
ten per cent off for cash , as you stated
in your paper. The fact is , I have not
got one cent of the county's money.
It took the scrapers and $41.56 in cash
to pay my taxes , which was $125.56.
Now , Mr. Editor , if there is any
thing dishonorable about this deal don't
you vote for me to go down to the
legislature , and if there is nothing dis
honorable , then you vote for me to go to
the legislature and you will be as good a
reformer as you was two years ago
when you belonged to the independent
party and wanted me to join hands with
you and leave the old democrat party
and help you , this country and vote for

papers that copied the article. Cour
Quite an Ovation.
That was a splendid audience tha
greeted Hon. Sterling P. Morton in th
opera house , Monday evening , am
should be very gratifying to all person
concerned. The eloquent and able frei
trader was at his best and delivered ;
most affective political speech fron
the democratic point of view ; spieinj
the whole effort with some clever roast
ing of General VanWyck.
A small torchlight procession , carry
ing a number of banners and headei
by the band , preceded the speaking.
S. N. Wolbach , the democratic nom
inee for lieutenant governor , made :
few remarks at the opening.
F. H. Spearman , the clever local dis
ciple of Cobdera , introduced Mr. Mor
ton with marked satisfaction and pleas
ure.Mr. . Morton did not state , however
among other things , why the late over
whelmingly democratic congress did not
amend or repeal the McKinley tarifi
bill. Perhaps it was a mere oversight.
Even the ' -Sage of Arbor Lodge"
had to play to the gallery ; as witness-
eth his reference to assafcetida and the
republican party.
On the question of finance the speak
er is a stalwart gold-bug and decidedly
out of tune with his friend Bryan of
Lincoln , whose district he religiously
avoids in his political pilgrimages.
Hold on Quaker.
Some of the independents seem in
clined to go back on Mr. Sheridan.
The Courier is , as we have said before ,
in favor Mr. Sheridan , in favor of the
present war , also the next. The way
to accomplish a reform is to vote for
the nominees on the independent ticket
no matter who they are or how they
were nominated. It is different with
the republican ticket. We trust this
is clear to our independent friends and
needs no further explanation. Cour
There was a splendid republican
rally up at Osborn postofficc , a large
gathering of farmers being present
from a wide scope of surrounding
county , and the attention and enthus
iasm was quite marked. Hons. T. J.
Majors , J. C. Allen , W. E. Andrews ,
W. S. Summers and J. C. Gammill
were" the speakers. It was a most
gratifying meeting to republicans.

Frank/in Academy.
Students and friends of the Franklin
academy will be pleased to learn that
the State University , of Nebraska , has
placed the academy first in its list of
accredited schools , thus giving it first
rank among the preparatory schools of
the state. This school is at the front
in all lines of work and we advise all
young people to investigate and find
out what it can offer them before going
elsewhere. The fall term begins Sep

The average salary a month pai (
each man teaching in the public schools
of the United States is $42.43. The
highest average salary paid a month in
any state tn a man teaching in the
public schools is to be credited to Mas
sachusetts , $108.88 ; but the next high
est salary paid is that found in Colora
do , $95.21. Colorado pays its teachers
more than Massachusetts ; Ohio gives
its teachers twice as much as Maine ;
and the teachers of Illinois receive
more than twice what the teachers of
Vermont receive.
To those who think Mr. Sheridan
had no cause for leaving the rotten old
parties ( it is said he has belonged to
ill of them ) we would point them to Mr.
Sheridan's financial standing in 1890
when his taxes were $72 and in 1891
only $52. This is certainly evidence
enough that the value of his personal
property shrunk almost one third. At
; his rate , in two years Mr. Sheridan
will be without a dollar. Courier.
