    The Point in Question
Have you had au outing yet? It'
not, take one; it will do you good. If
you can't afford a trip to Colorado.
California or Sun-set-by-the-sea, take
a frying pan, a loaf of bread, fish
hook and line, some thin slices of
bacon—dont forget the bacon—
pepper and salt, and wend your way
to the Nemaha early in the morning.
There’s health and enjoyment there.
There may be a few mosquitos, but
they have those pests at all the fash
ionable resorts. You can fish to
your hearts content,and when hunger
knocks at the door, you throw a
newly-caught bass or channel cat in
the frying pan along with some
bacon, and then eat, and eat, and eat.
And ir. the cool of the evening you
saunter home, and the little old back
porch looks mighty inviting as you
hove in sight and they have apple
sauce and cottage cheese for supper,
and hot biscuit, and in spite of the
fish diet of tlie day, you fall to and
just eat, and eat. and eat.
There is no one so blind as to the
faults of youth as a fond, indulgent
mother; that is, the youth of her
own family. This was aptly illus
trated one day recently in my pres
ence, when a mother, who by the
way is pretty wise as to the short
comings of those outside of her im
mediate family, was debating upon
the sins of youth. Tobacco was
the topic of conversation, and she de
clared emphatically that her hoy
just abhored the weed. Now the
truth of the matter is, sad as it may
seent, her boy is an adept at rolling
a cigarette and his very finger-tips
are yellow from handling of “coffin
nails.” But mother can’t see these
things in her own boy—its that dread
ful hoy next door in whom she sees
the very personification of evil.
F. D. Coburn, the eminent agricul
turist of Kansas, is a great “scrap
book” man, and makes the doors
leading into his office serve as a
scrap-book, the same being plastered
over with the bits of philosophy he
likes best. Here is one of the pieces
that is accorded a consplcious place:
“I shall pass through the world but
once. Any good, therefore, that I
can do, or any kindness that I can
show to any human being, let me do
it now. Let me not defer or neg
lect it, for 1 shall not pass this way
Soon our friends will be coming
home from the mountains of the west
from the Seattle exposition, from the
great lakes and the small lakes, from
points where ocean breezes blow, and
we home-guards will be glad to see
them, and will give them a warm
greeting, but we hope, we sincerely
hope, they will cease talking about
the “lovely” time they had and try
ing to describe the scenery, before

Public attention hereabouts is about
evenly divided between the grading
work on the Missouri Pacific railway
company and the work of the dredge
boats, particularly the small dredge
boat, which is now right at the city’s
door cutting a lateral ditch through
the rich bottom lands that are to be
reclaimed and made safe for tilling.
This scheme of straightening out a
great water course and connecting
thereto a network of lateral ditches
did not appeal to the masses at first,
and many good men deemed it an
impossible attempt to harness waters
that nature had meant to spread out
over rich bottom lands; but today
there is a very small per cent of
tax payers on the doubting side. As
The work progresses, as the scheme j
unfolds, new adherents are gained
and confidence inspired and it is
dawning upon the people that the
New Nemaha will prove to be the
greatest boon that has yet been ac
quired to bless and enrich an already
highly-favored section of the state.
If you don’t know your bible, go
slow in an argument that has to do
with bibical characters; take the safe
side—look wise and say little; let
your opponents do the talking; you
pick up the crumbs he drops and out
of the whole you may possibly hold
your own. There are times when
silence is golden, and this is one of
the times. At a social gathering re
cently the characters and dramatic
incidents surrounding the story of the
beheading of John the Baptist came up
for discussion—not through the relig
ious bent of those present, but, on
account of the prominence given that
great incident in bible history the
past few years by drama, dance and
song. “What was the. name of that
wicked hussy who caused all the trou
ble?” asked one good brother. “Si
loam,” answered a young sister. And
then they simply crushed her. “You
mean ‘Salome,’ ” suggested a good
friend. "Show me,’ said “Sister Si
loam,” and up to a late hour the
usual program was still suspended
and a bunch of positive, perspiring
people were busy turning the leaves
of three bibles trying to show “Sister
Slloam” the error of her way, ami
up to the latest accounts they hadn't
convinced her yet of her error. Its
a good thing to know your bible. If
you don’t know it, go slow in an
“If my daughter ever graduates in

"When 1 was a farmer in Illinois,”
says a representative in congress,
“there came to me one day an inter

though lie was a stranger in those
parts, seemed oddly familiar to me.
“The man had slopped to water

“‘Your kindness to that poor boy
was most exceptional,’ continued the
stranger. ‘You fed him, encouraged
him, gave him clothes and two dollars
and sent him on his way feeling pret

Don't Make a Mistake
Come to Falls City
Mr. Retiring Farmer, if you are contemplating leaving the farm, don’t make a
