The Chancellor's Lecture.
The lecture by Chancellor C. M. Ellin-
wood of the Nebraska Wesleyan univer
sity , last Sunday evening , in the Metho
dist church , was largely attended anc
greatly appreciated. "Am IMy Brother's
Keeper" ? was answered in the affirma
tive by the chancellor in no uncertair
language. He showed how the strained
relations between capital and labor and
many other frictions of this busy world
could be harmonized and softened bj
men believing and practicing the broth
erhood of men , that men are and
of right ought to be their brothers1
keepers. The lecture was a very instruc
tive and pleasure affording one. The
clfancellor occupied the pulpit in the
morning with profit and pleasure to his
many hearers.
Counterfeit Nickels.
Merchants of the city report that they
are being victimized by makers audi
shovers of the queer. Quite a numbei
of counterfeit nickels have been passed
in the city , recently. The slot machines
seem to be especially attractive to the
youths who are supposed to be promot
ing the industry and incidentally in
creasing the per capita. The counter
feits in some instances are poor , but
many are well made , and not easy to de
tect at a mere passing glance. The re
form school seems to he 3-awning for
some of the youthful scamps of this city ,
and an early residence there might save
some of them from a term in prison.
In New Quarters.
I am now located in the Laycock store
room , where I shall be pleased to see all
my old customers and many new ones.
My stock of cigars , tobaccos and smokers' '
articles is unequaled in the city. In con
nection with my retail establishment , 3
run a cigar factory ; besides one of the
best appointed billiard and pool rooms
in the Republican valley. Everything
first class. J. H. BENNETT.
Too Diaphanous , Colonel.
The excuse given by Colonel Mitchell ,
last week , why he did not defend his
claim of having the largest circulation
on two hemispheres , more or less , is too
thin by half. About the only course
now open to the Colonel is the removal
of the unsightly bluff at the head of his
paper and the admission that he lacked
nerve to respond when the Republican
called him down.
University Summer School.
The Nebraska university summer
school for teachers , principals and super
intendents will open on June 7th and
close at noon on July 3d. Persons desir
ing to attend should write the chancellor
of the university at Lincoln for circulars
giving full particulars.

Post Yourselves.
If the Republican and Courier will
simply read the statute and McCook's
guarantee they will not effervesce through
their tiles any more about the court
house question. McCook stands ready
any minute to perform its guarantee , in
fact has fulfilled its pledge , and only
awaits the co-operation of the county.
In view of present financial conditions it
is certainly not wise or expedient to
push the question of building a new
court house. With a good crop or two ,
the question will be a simple one. Be
patient. Post up.

Nebraska Investments Secure.
While some people have sought to re
fleet on the stability of Nebraska invest
ments instances are continually cominj
to notice that indicate that the peopli
who have invested their money in thi
state fare quite as well as those whose in
vestments are in the east. A local rea
estate agency cites a case in point whicl
is worth attention. Among their client :
is an eastern widow who has large invest
ments in a number of different states
Among these was a mortgage on a large
farm in the central part of Nebraska
which was placed in the hands of the
Omaha firm. For a few years back the
interest has been slow , but a few days age
the firm collected in full aud remitted the
entire amount to the client. Yesterday
morning they received a letter from hei
in which she stated that this was one o :
three similar mortgages. One of the
others was on a well improved farm ir
New York and the other on one of the
best farms in southern New Hampshire.
Both of these had failed altogether tc
yield a cent of interest , while her Nebras
ka mortgage had proved to be all "right.
The client added that after this experi
ence she would contend that Nebraska
was all right. Bee.

A subscriber wants to know why we

The publisher might but won't answei
the question directly. However , this

them alone. There will be no necessity
for The Tribune or any other paper o :
person to "jump onto" them.
