There is a promising possibility
that the coming city election may
be quite as lively as the most ex

Of making holidays there seems
M 1 to be no end. It is now proposed

birthday , a legal holiday.
America of right ought to be

H 1 people of the republic ought to

iff The government should not be
1m permitted to run behind or increase
ffi its debt in times like the present.
M | \ Suitably to provide against this is
H Bil the mandate of duty , the certain
H H and easy remedy for most of our
H H financial difficulties. A deficiency
| H w is inevitable so long as the expend-
| Hk itnres of-the government exceed
H its receipts. 'It can only be met
l B y l ° ans or an increased revenue.
I HB While large annual surplus of re-
HH venue may invite waste and extrav-
HB agance , inadequate revenue creates
X distrust and undermines public
Hl , and private credit. Neither should
b be encouraged. Between more
9 loans and more revenue , there
Hl ought to be but one opinion. We
S should have more revenue , and
flj that without delay , hindrance or
Hb postponement. The best way for
B the goverment to maintain its cred-
K it is to pay as it goes not by re-
Hl sorting to loans , but by keeping
HB out of debt through an adequate
B income , secured by n system of
B taxationexternal , internal , or both.
1 It is the settled policy of the gov-
S ernment , pursued from the begin-
HB ning and practiced by all parties
B and administrations , to raise the
BS bulk of our revenue from taxes up-
Bb HbWB on foreign productions entering
Km the United States for sale and con-
H sumption , and avoiding for the
8 most part , every form of direct
B taxation , except in time of war.

No public official in Nebraska
can hope to embezzle enough state
funds to dismay a certain class of
newspapermen from doing the
"fence act" for them.
The York Times says that ex-
State Treasurer Bartley "has won
the gratitude of the business men
of Nebraska" . But the price was
too high , Tim ; too altitudinous al
together. A few more such win-
niugs will bankrupt the state.
In misrepresentation and pre
varication of State Treasurer Me
serve it is clearly the distinct pur
pose of the York Times to distance
all competitors. But few men on
this terrestrial globe can equal Tim
Sedgwick in unlicensed imagina
tion when a Pop is on the griddle ,
TnE federal court has issued a
decree divorcing the Western

Preaching at the school house
at 11 o'clock fast time. Last Sun
day the congregation was disap
pointed again. They waited until
after 12 and as they were leaving
the preacher drove in sight , but
they went home. We suggest that
in the future the preach-1 * come
regular on time , or else just drop
the appointment , and then the people
ple will know what to depend on.
The congregation is getting smaller
because of the uncertainty of the
preacher being present. We would
rather have no appointment than
to have no preacher.

This community was shocked ,
Saturday morning of last week , by
the sad intelligence that A. E.
Morris , who recently went from
here to Redky , Indiana , had met
death by drowning the day previ
ous. Particulars are meagre but
it seems that on Friday afternoon
he was riding a horse across a
stream swollen by recent rains
when the animal stumbled and
threw him over its head. The body
was not recovered until Saturday
morning. General regret is ex
pressed at the loss of this bright
young man.
If you have ever seen a child in the agony
of croup , you can appreciate the gratitude

Cough Cure relieves their little ones as quick
ly as it is administered. Many homes in this
city are never without it. A. McMillen.
Spring Catarrh.
Again spring is here. The
long , cold winter with its bluster
mid chill , has passed , and has left
in its train innumerable victims of
shronic catarrh. They have taken
1 great many remedies during the
winter with perhaps temporary re
lief , but a fresh cold has brought
4 CD
du the old symptoms , and , heart
sick and weary of trying , they have
concluded that there can be no re
lief for them. This is a great :
mistake ; and now is the time to
rectify it.
The spring time is the most fa
vorable time of the year to treat
jatarrh. There is so much less
liability to take fresh cold that the
ireatment is unimpeded. All old
jases of chronic catarrh should be-
jiu immediately a course of Pe-
: u-na as directed in Dr. Hartman's
jooks on this disease. There are
o many different phases and stages :
) f catarrh that one hardly knows
vhen he has it. A great many
Deople think they are suffering
: rom something else and have tried
nany medicines in vain , when if
hey could realize that it is catarrh
ind take Pe-ru-nafor it they would
mprove promptly and soon recov-
sr entirely.

satarrh should send for a free copy
