THE way the newspaper boys
who stood in with Secretary Johnson -
son are leaking taffy is tearfully
JUDGE SCOTT of Douglas county -
ty should never be allowed to occupy -
cupy the judicial bench another
term. He is in no sense qualified.
IF there is no money in meat as
truthful Philip Armour states ,
there can be but one explanation
' of that truly remarkable fact :
Phil has squeezed all the fat out
of it ,
CHAIRMAN MORItILL has issued a
, C ' call for a meeting of the rePublican -
can state central committee at Lincoln -
coln , August 7. It is thought this
committee will call the state convention -

THERE is a genial and accomplished -
plished editor in the Republican
valley who still persists in stating
that so-and-so "done job"
- - a good ,
unmindful of the defunct fly in
the molasses. Ie can hardly pass
muster as the "best farm" even in
which to spread taffy.
ONE of the crimes the people of
America are now "serving time"
for is the indiscriminate and inconsiderate -
considerate voting away of valuable -
able franchises in a reckless and
gratuitous manner. Thus welding
fetters to enslave themselves.
Heaven forgive them , they per-
Imps knew not what they were do-
THE Oxford Standard thinks
that rurnas county has a lead
pipe cinch on the judgeship nominations -
nations , with Norris and McClure
as the respective Republican and
Populist nominees. Furnas county -
ty is indeed disposed to be liberal
with herself in this matter ; but
seriously there are one or two other -
er counties with ambitious candidates -
dates , in the Fourteenth district.
THE nest few weeks are the
weeks that tell for the corn crop
of Nebraska. With favorable
w weather the farmers will soon be
assured' of a bountiful return for
the labor he has expended upon
the cultivation of his land. In
this turning point in the corn crop
every person in the state is intensely -
tensely interested. Completely
restored prosperity is almost in
THE Philadelphia Enquirer refers -
fers to our only J. Sterling as follows -
"Here is a phrase of Secretary
of Agriculture Morton , "the vein-
less viscera of vacuity , vast volumes -
umes of value. " We are not particularly -
ticularly fond of alliteration , but
we suggest , in justice to the other
members of the cabinet , that Mr.
Cleveland should lay hands upon
this Nebraska jack-rabbit , and
muzzle his mobility of mouth. "
THE Democratic party is bifurcated -
cated to the top of the head , and
the recent state central committee
meeting in Omaha did nothing to
heal the chasm. The silver men
were distinctly in control of the
meeting , denouncing the bolters
as traitors and firing a number of
them from the committee , filling
the vacancies thus made with silver -
ver men. The administration
Democrats will hold their convention -
tion in September-the 5th , and
to checkmate this effort to get on
the ticket as the straight Demo-
Rr . trots , the s ilverites have named
r. c August 22d and Omaha , as the
1L : date and place for holding their
convention , And the war is on.
Oh , goody ! the days are getting
Corn shows but little effects of
the hail now.
Walter Epperly has a care and
the girls can ride now.
About the only time a hoe can
be borrowed up here is after night.
Mr. Coyle's brother of St. Louis
was a visitor in this town. , recent-
Uncle Billy got so "work brick-
le" that he was out hoeing with
Mrs. Coyle and Mike had to stay

Some wheat up here will make
about 15 bushels per acre ; weeds ,
4 to 10 tons.
W. T. Coleman and Mr. Wharton -
ton of McCook were up this way ,
first of the week.
H. Cochran would like some

Uncle Billy kept the hoe sharp
while aunty did the hoeing.
She was walking about as fast
as she could when her foot caught
under something and she-left her
negative on the ground , full size.
"Shorty" Smith says he has a
patch of weeds that he would like
to see a cyclone-a veritable old-
timer tackle. He says that lie
thinks that old cy. would get the
worst of it.
Mrs. Coleman and son started to
McCook , Saturday , and were detained -
tained three hours on the road by
rain. They got to McCook , but
did not get home until noon , Sunday -
day , on account of rain and mud.
Grandpa Rozell and "Shorty"
Smith have a spat about every
time they meet. Grandpa says
he has the largest weeds of anyone -
one , while "Shorty" declares that
it is not so , that his weeds are the
biggest , and so it goes.
They have a bell at Mr. Wales'
to call the men to dinner. They
have a horse that whinnies when
the bell rings. One cloudy day
the old horse whinnied and the
boys turned out for dinner , but on
arriving at the house found that
they were about an hour previous.
The old horse was too smart for
the boys , that time.
Dr , J , A. Vogle was called to
his long home , Saturday morning.

Seven years ago he was living in

ing in Hayes Co. Monday , his
remains were laid in St. Patrick's

ON the pages of the world's history -
tory cannot be found an account
of the like of the splendid , matchless -
less national Christian Endeavor
convention held in Boston , last
week. A hundred thousand delegates -
gates present , representing two

THE valuation of Nebraska as
per the annual assessment shows
a decrease of almost 25 million
dollars over the valuation of two
years ago. This assessment is so
low that it is claimed that it will

letter in which he says :
"A new party must be formed ,
but there is new work to be done
-work that the other parties' are
not willing to do-a new party
fresh from the people , a party
made up of men of courage equal
to their convictions. But it will

' .3. Oat with the transportation -
" 4. Down with the money

" 6. Live the republic. "
