THE Lincoln Daily News expresses - .
presses the opinion that the move
to send an uuinstructed delegation
to St. Louis is in the interest of
the politicians who want to trade
off McKinley. Others say that the
' effort to instruct is in favor of the
place-seekers. At all events the
politicians will likely have their way
. in the matter , although the people
may not know the fact until it is
WHEN it comes to doing a real
fine and thoroughly comprehensive
job of political rascality they have
a gang up in Hayes county who
can give the average scamp cards
and spades and then skin him. It
takes an expert to raise 45 votes
. in a small county like Hayes for
two candidates exclusively and at
the same time not disturb the re-
suit as to any other candidates.
But it is an easily accomplished
_ . . job for an unscrupulous man who
knows enough to place a judicious

Your Iudihuola correspondent

youth , that some parents or guardians -
; dians have utterly disregarded the
command laid down in Proverbs
22:6. And when they fall to do

both human and diviuP law. It is
a question of grave import , and

One of our mothers in Israel
created some commotion down

Whether the proverbial bad small

mains to be discovered.
Friday evening of last week a
number of the friends of Miss Miim-
uie Whittaker found occasion to
call upon her at her home it W.H.
Powell's. Marvelous to relate , she
was surprised , really siirprisedand
wanted to run ; but that was not
permitted. Later , her first fear
that there might be nothing to eat
in time house was completely removed -
oved , and she enjoyed herself along

Colonel Bishop of the Reporter
seems to have found something the
matter with himself , last week , and
so , of course , he had to resort to
his dictionary of billingsgate , as
usual. One might well be moved
to pity by the reflection , that after
long years of editorial effort the
.Colonel has progressed no further
in certain parts of his profession
than lie had , when , a ten-year-old
on the .school play ground , he
vented his ill humor by calling his
play fellows names. Will some one
ask the Colonel how he would feel ,
if some one should , in print , apply
to him epithets as truthful as he
applies false to other people ? Do
not expect it in this column , how-

On the afternoon of February
10th , Alonzo Miller and Miss Ada
Burns were united in marriage ,
Rev. H. H. Berry officiating. Mr.
Miller averted the calamity of a
charivari by bringing his bride to
churchin her pretty wedding dress ,
and handing the cigars around to
the boys. The good wishes of the
entire community follow this young
couple into their new home , which
we understand will be at "Forest
Home" , the old Buck farm.
