highest of all in Leavening Power.-Latest U. S. Gov't Report
' n e
By F. M. KIMMELL.
1 $1.50 A YEAR IN ADVANCE.
It is a serious question in the minds of
1 many whether Nebraska would not be
, better off with ino irrigation law than
with the Akers' law.
T1ti ; report of Bank Examiner Cline
on the Trenton lank failure would indicate -
dicate that Charles H. Peck is no slouch
when it comes to looting a bank in
first-class , artistte style.
The Illinois legislature has passed a
law making it a misdemeanor for a
woman to wear a high hat at the thea-
tre. If it will now pass a measure making -
ing ; it felonious for a man to go out and
take two or three drinks between acts ,
no one can say that an injustice has
been done either sex. A man has no
more right to go forth and acquire a bad
breath and bring it back with him than
a woman has to obscure the view of
others by wearing a church steeple on
her shapely head.
Or the mania for gambling an ex-
chauge says : "A man is nothing short
.of an ineffable fool to begin bucking the
tiger. It sends more men to hellsocial-
1y , morally and financially than all other
evils combined. Men lose their minds
over a chance to win at Monte Carlo.
A boy is a fool to begin. It grows like
the drink habit and there is no Kecley
cure to straighten him up. Saw wood ,
dig ditches , shovel dirt , anything to
earn an honest penny , but be not tempted -
ed to take a chance on getting something -
thing for nothing. The other fellow is
i always smarter than you are. You are
sure to be betting on somebody else's
game Don't be a sucker. Don't be an
inspired idiot. Don't gamble. "
E. F. Test says that the farmers of
Iowa and Nebraska should plaint liberally -
ly in grain and corn this year. "The
indications are , " says he , "that the
months of June , July and August will be
hot , steauny and sultry , just the reverse
of last , year. The planet Venus will
travel with the earth through space
around the sun during these months ,
passing the earth on the 19th of Septem-
ber. After that clay we must expect
frost. Certain periods of March and
April vrill be mild and warm , but there
is danger to the fruit crop about the 15th
to the 17th of May. Altogether the
season will be similar to the summer of
1884 , then Venus and the earth were
traveling around the sun together.
Venus is a marine world-that is , coy-
ered with water , and when in proximity
to the earth in summer , we can always
expect a hot , sultry , wet season during
the summer month , . "

E. M. Brewer will start forlowa , soon ,
to make his home.
There is a good deal of sickness among
'children at the present time.
There was a woodchopping , Saturday ,
for the minister and the church.
James Pinkerton is the happy papa of
a bouncing girl baby since February
Justice of the Peace Kiughorn is kept
btisy making out applications for aid ,
Rev. Vivian has carried on one of the
most successful protracted meetings ever
held in the Red Willow valley , there being -
ing upwards of eighty uniting with the
There has been a great many stories
going around about parties receiving aid
who are able to get along without it , and
of other parties whose parents have said
they did not want their sons to receive
aid , as they were able to keep them.
This report is false , for the parents
have never said anything of the kind.
It is very unjust to circulate such reports.
There is not a family on the divide but
will have to have help , either food ,
clothing , or feed and seed to put in a
crop , and we would deem it a favor for
such parties to remain silent. There is
enough for all without the hog act.
There's Always a Reason.
It is an easy thing to account for the
wonderful growth of the DAILY STATE
JOURNAL recently. Its price has been reduced -
duced to 5o cents per month without
Sunday , or 65 cents with Sunday. T11R
JOURNAL has alwas been reliable and
honest , printing the news without fear
or favor. The people of Nebraska realize -
ize that they need a paper published at
the capital , and when the price of TsE
JOURNAL was reduced the subscription
"list grew at a phenominal rate. THE
JOURNAL is a Nebraska paper through
