IV IBtCwk Friiift. By F. M. K1MMELL. *1.60 A YEAR IN ADVANCE. ALL HOME PRINT. Lawyer James McNeny of Red Cleud, would have no objection to relieving Congressman McKei ghan at Washington. To farther this desire was evidently the im port of his visit in our city, closing days of last week. Ton have per haps noticed the size of the yawn ing cavity the average Red Cloud politician has for pie. The Jaffa-Jerusalem railroad is a sort of international affair. The concession was obtained by a na tive of Jerusalem. The road was built by a French company, the engines and cars manufactured in the United States, run over rails made in Belgium, and the most remunerative part of the passen ger traffic is drawn from British ' tourists. _ The Bland bill for the coinage of fifty-five million dollars of seigniorage silver passed the honse Thursday by 164 to 129, a major ity of 35. Fifty democrats voted against it and nineteen republicans for it. All the populists voted for it. The south and west furnished the votes for the bill, while the east was solid against it. This is a reliable indication of the coming lines of party division. It is said that Rosewater is for Cady for Governor and John Da vies for attorney general. If so, he for once deserves to win his fight. Cady is a fanatic in some things, a most uncompromising republican, and objectionable in being a believer in bounty and tariff, but he is honest and not afraid. So is John Davies, and with those men in office there would be no stealing from the state. But there is no hope of the republicans ever nominating such men.—Lincoln Herald. The new plan of the elevated road in New York City is to build a second track above the old one. This is the scheme proposed by the company, but it is safe to say that nothing beyond promises will be attempted until there is a riot or a semblance of one. No other city in the country would have suffered so long and patiently under the in conveniences and abuses of the transportation system. But New York is notoriously apathetic is the matter of public improvement and facilities, and exhibits on its principal thoroughfares dirty and rickety cars and stages that would not be tolerated in the ordinary country town. As long as public sentiment is not unmistakably and forcibly defined, so long will the corporations do as they please in this the “best governed city in America.” A New Yobk judge enunciates the doctrine in a decision denying the claim of a woman to marital relationship with a defendant in his court that “words of endearmenl in love letters are never to be taker literally; the extravagant use of such words therefor cannot be held to conclude the defendant to theii literal meaning, even if he did write them.” Won’t this establish a cloak for men to hide behind when love affairs get too worm! How can susceptible women relj upon anything a man may write to them if his words of endearmenl are not to be understood in theii literal sense? The rule of inter pretation here laid down will tend to make love missives synonymous with deceit It is cruel for a couri to juggle thus with the recognized instrument for conveying expres sions of admiration and affection. 4 CURIOUS DECISIOR. The decision of the supreme court in the depository law is rather curious, not in itself but in the results that will follow. The decision of the court in effect is that the educational funds of the state are not current funds; that is, funds coming under the provis ions of the law requiring them to be deposited in approved deposit ories, which will leave but about four funds to which this will ap ply. The court holds that the ed ucational funds cannot be deposit ed in the banks, as that consti tutes a loan in direct contravention of the law. They must be invested either in United States or state securities or in registered county bonds. The inevitable conclusion is that Mr. Bartley must keep all these school funds in his vault in the capitol. This is jumping from the frying pan into the fire with a vengeance. Mr. Bartley objected to allowing these funds to be de posited in state depositories where the state could get three per cent interest for the reason that it would deprive him of that amount or interest as ms perquisite as treasurer. It ought to be appar ent even to a supreme court that it was never intended by the legisla ture that the treasurer should keep a million dollars or less in the vaults at the state house, where it would have to be guarded night and day; neither was it the inten tion to give the treasurer a large sum for speculation or upon which he could realize personal profit The Omaha banks announce their intention to begin action to com pel the treasurer to withdraw these funds from the banks where they are drawing interest far the treas urer and put them in the vaults, where the supreme court says they belong. It is to. be hoped that Treasurer Bartley will obviate this embarrassment by investing the permanent school fund as the law provides, in the state warrants now drawing 7 per cent interest, and cease the senseless quibbling over legal technicalities that do not re bound to the reputation of officials. —Exchange. It will surely be Andrews and McKeighan again in the Fifth dis trict Mighty interesting times are ahead. A democbatic newspaper feel ingly and irreverently speaks of Cleveland as God’s understudy.

Farmers have begun work in good earnest. Mr. Henderson intends putting his entire farm in wheat, this spring, Geo. Henderson is holding forth at the old headquarters. We wonder if he too is making his own pancakes. It is remarkable how very oddly the people proceed about asking us if we are really and truly batching it right along. We are deeply grieved to learn of the death, February 20th, at North Platte, of Mr. Isaac Clark, formerly of Bartley. A petition is being circulated among land owners of this district, the object being to open a road which will be more convenient for those living north and west of the school house. Mr. Cashen and boys will work the Cain plaoe, again this year, also the old Wilcox farm, making, in addition to his other places, about 470 aores, which will be put into crops this season. Where land is plenty and cheap it would be folly to crowd things, or at tempt to have the neglected garden and fruit patch all in one. It is much more convenient to grow fruit and veg etables in separate plaoes. The more or less strikingly handsome features of the scholars of the Divide school were taken in a bunch, by an artist, a few days sinoe. Thus far we have been denied the opportunity of passing our good judgment upon the result An agriculturist says that one reason why boys leave the farm is that they are not educated in rural tastes. Agri culture is too often made a slaving business instead of an elevating pursuit, where skill is highly esteemed and sci ence has its proper plaoe. The year gone by was not a good one for raising chickens, yet North Divide has one family who managed to raise over 700 of these feathered customers. Good care and wise man agement in this department of the farm is sure of large gains. In building dwelling houses, farmers should plan not only for beauty and symmetry, but also for the convenience of the family. Many a farmer’s wife has been oompellod to lead a life of toil and drudgery through the neglect of her husband to make the house con venient. Miss Addie Hanlein’s six months term of school at Box Elder closed, on Friday last. Appropriate exeroises were held during the day and the oc casion was thoroughly enjoyed. Both teacher and soholars regretted that the term was not of longer duration, which is not often the case. A very pleasant party of young peo ple gathered at the home of A. F. Reeves, Wednesday evening last. The time was pleasantly spent in games and other amusement until a late hour. An elegant and appetizing repast, whioh savored largely of better times, was partaken of by those present. J. S. Modrell will not sow a very large aoreage to small grain, having pinned his faith decidedly in favor of broom oorn. With those who have a large force of help of their own, broom oorn has always proven to be a paying bnsiness, with the exoeption of the last year. Some farmers in this vicinity are unable to dispose of last season’s crop at the present prices. The Tariff, Financial, Hawaiian and other questions of the day do not interest the people hereabout as much as the question where can I get the most and best groceries for the money. C. M. Noble can answer the question to the satis faction of all. Do you know that woven wire fencing is the best and cheapest fencing on earth? S. M. Cochran & Co. have a large stock of all sizes.
