m The many admirers and friends
M of Ex-Congressman W.E.Andrews
M -will be delighted to learn of his rem -
m cent appointment as auditor for the
M treasury department , a very corn
el fortable , four-year berth , with a
M salary of $3,600 per annum atm -
M The republican senators have
M happily agreed on the sugar sched-
M ule in caucus , the amendment of
M the finance committee to the Ding-
B ley bill being amended and agreed
M upon. The amendment is calcu
li lated to remove the objections
m urged in some quarters that the
M Aldrich schedule was too favorable
m to the sugar refiners. State Jour-
B Judge Baker's refusal to con-
m tinue the Bartley case over until the
m next term of court is highly comm -
m mended in business circles. There
m is no reason , in a simple issue of
m this sort , an issue of fact , that can
fl be decided in short order , for dragr-
ging the trial through six months
or a year. Since the ex-treasurer
1 has not shown up the money of the
state with which he is charged , he
m n should be given the earliest chance
1 possible to locate the cash or take
j the consequences. Journal.
M " The Omaha World-Herald stops
m its press to iuquire "what grounds
fl a protection party has for levying
1 a tax on tea ? " It is a pleasure to
B answer that it is on grounds of a
H bonded indebtedness of $262,000-
h 000 contracted by Grover Cleveland
M ' with the assistance of the Wilson-
M ' Gorman-Bryan deficiency for-rev-
H enue-only act. It is no more nor
H less than a war tax , to pay the
H -war debt incurred by the crowd
H that surrendered the industries of
H the country to "Yurrup" and made
H a wreck of the finances of Uncle
H Sam. The World-Herald is at lib-
H erty to start its press again. Lin-

H The suit of the South Omaha <
H stock yards people to prevent by
injunction of the federal court the :
I enforcement of the new state law j
I regulating stock yards and fixing '
H maximum rates of charges for them
H is stimulated by the- success of
H the railroads in holding up the
H Nebraska maximum freight rate
law. The two cases , however , seem
H to be altogether different. If the
H federal court can undertake indis-
H criminately to stop state laws from
B going into effect on mere allega-
I tion that they reduce the inflated
H profits of some corporation , the
legislative power of our states
I will be to all intents and purposes
B abrogated unless its exercise meets
B the approval of the federal judges.

I Canada is to issue a new series
I of postage stamps in commemoration -
tion of the queen's jubilee which are
I * described as being almost the size
I and shape of our old Columbian
I postage stamp and embellished
I- with two portraits of Victoria , one
I representing her in 1837 and the
other in 1897. Canada will be
t . welcome to the exclusive use of
these stamps , as after our experi
ence with the Columbian posters
L patrons of the American postoffice
f find their present adhesives quite
| large enough. The double por-
jfrf. traits , too , is likely to be confusing -
! ing to Canadians of convivial
l'ft habits as conducive to duplex
l . vision. As ornaments to the postage -
| age stamp fiend's album the new
! * Canadian issue may be a distinct
f , contribution but for practical pur-
f ' poses its career does not seem
' " hopeful. Omaha Bee.

Quarterly meeting at the Cole
man school house , last Sunday
night. It was not at all like the
ones we remember of fifty years

suspicion that a quarterly meeting
was on hand , Sunday night.
June 5th , 18 years ago to day ,
we first drove over this town. There
was but one family in the town
ship , that of Wm. Proctor. After
locating : a claim we took the bows
irom the wagon , set the ends in
; he ground , stretched the cover on
; hem and moved in. During that
summer we saw but five men on
his prairie. We hauled water 8
niles. Nearest neighbor was five
niles away. The first two and a
mlf years we had but three lady
isitors , all in one dajr . The near-
st school was down in the valley ,
Lve miles off. A preacher living
if teen miles northeast of Arapahoe '
[ rove up once a month and preach- '
d to us. The trip made a drive
f 140 miles. He drove up in a
arm wagon and camped out at ]
lights. When he arrived , he uni
larnessed and lariated out his
lorses on the prairie to eat , while
ie preached. Such were the good
Id days of long ago.
Don't neglect a cough because the weather

Sunday afternoon. Funeral ser
vices were held at the Dodge school

very impressive sermon. Samuel
was a young man of excellent
qualities , loved and respected by
all who knew him. We will miss
him from among us but hope to
meet him in a better world.

Children's day was celebrated
at the Christian church by an en
tertainment that has not been sur
passed in this locality for some
time. The music was good and

was crowded to the utmost.
The Y. P. S. C. E. elected the
following officers at its business
meeting , Sunday : Eflie Loomis ,

goes to show that the Indies of this
community are properly valued.
Quite certaiu it is that our live
Endeavor Society will prosper with
this corps of officers.

lopeless invalid. Her mother be-
: ame anxious aud haggard in her
rantic efforts to save her dausrh-
er. None of her attempts to find
i cure seemed of any avail. As
tated in her own words :
"My daughter was taken sick
ome time ago and 1 tried many
aediciues in vain. She was very
reak , appetite poor , bowels costive ,
nd night sweats. She appeared
d be cold all the time , being taken
rith violent chills at times. Her
erves were in a very bad condi-
ion. At last I happened to see
ne of your little books and wrote
ou. You recommended Pe-ru-na.

ompletely recovery. I owe all
iiat I am worth in this world to
