It long ago seemed as though
shoes could never be better and
never be cheaper, but they are
better now and cheaper now than
th«y ever were before. The great
every day favorite is our men’s
and ladies’ shoe. It is ns much a
boon to the pocketbook 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.

On the question of railway reg
ulation Governor Crouuse declares
himself in favor of a material
reduction of rates, either by law
or through an elective railway
commission. While recognizing
railroads as important factors in
the development of the resources
of the state, and entitled with
other great concerns to the foster
ing care and protection of the
state, he believes that their power
to levy unreasonable burdens upon
the producers in the shape of ex
travagant freigh trates must be
restricted. In other words, while
the railroads are entitled to a fail
income on their honest investment
it is the province of the lawmakers
to set limits upon their power to
exact higher tolls from the people
of this state than are charged in
adjacent states for similar service
under like conditions.—Bee.
In Maine they are faying a new
method of reforming bad boys.
Instead of sending them to a re
form school they put them on what
is called a “good will farm” and
set them at work under proper
management and restraint. The
plan is working well and lias great
possibilities of good.
it is easy to steal or ring watches from the
pocket. The thief gets the watch in one
hand, the chain in the other and gives a
short, quick jerk—the ring slips off the
watch stem, and away goes the watch, leav
ing the victim only the chain.
This idea stopped
that little game:
The bow has a groove
on each end. A collar
runs down inside the
pendant (stem) and
Sts into the grooves,
firmly locking the
bow to the pendant,

pulled or twisted on. •

The complaint is becoming general
among the alliance newspapers and

ing broken William Karp's ieg in a
drunken brawl at tile brewery south of
Indianola, Friday, January 6tli. There
was a largo attendance upon the trial
and keen interest manifested. County
Attorney Dodge prosecuted the case;
and lias the distinction of being one of
the few prosecuting attorneys of Ne
braska who ever dismissed a ease af
ter having already introduced evidence
enough to win it. M r. Dodge says lie
dismissed the case because of iiis ina
bility to secure bis principal witness,
and says lie could have won the case
had the witness aforesaid arrived in the
court in time. The sheriff did not ar
rive with the witness in question until
after the dismissal of the action, though
having traveled 30 or 40 miles in search
of him. There are some who think
that Sidney lost his nerve, and the
gentleman is coming for some pretty

enormous amount for a comparatively

round figures; and Tiie Tribune un
derstands that Treasurer Hen ton pro
poses to make a heroic effort to collect
these taxes, which have accumulated in
the years gone, and which the several
county treasurers have neglected or
failed to collect. Treasurer Henton’s
determination will meet with approval
of all but those persons who have con
tinuously refused or neglected to pay
their share of the burden of taxation,
which has necessarily fallen more
heavily upon those who promptly and
honestly meet their obligations to the
state. The delinquency should be re
duced promptly and largely.
