ONeill in 1888 to accept the position
of deputy county treasurer under E
McDonald From the treasurers of
fice he entered the Indian warehouse
when Tucker was first appointed re
ceiving and shipping clprk With the
exception of a short timepassed in the
em ploy df the railroad and later J M
Thacher post trader at Fort Niobrara
he has been in the vvarehouse ever
since 89 serving under the successive
administrations of Tucker Oglesby
Carroll and Tucker up to the time he
v as promoted C R Watson takes
the place formerly occupied by Mr
Keeley aud this fact insures capable
management of the office While we
aie sorry to lose Mr Keeley as a citi
zen we congratulate him upon his pro
motion Mrs Keeley and the children
will remain here for the present
Wherever postal saving banks are in
operation women are among the most
appreciative patrons of the system
As a rule women are more careful
of small sums than men and seem to
have a more practical realization of
the value of such accumlations In
many families it is only the foresight
of the wife that leads to provision be
ing made against a day of adversity
The desire of women more generally
than of men is for a place of absolute
safety for their small savings rather
than high rates of interest Conse
quently they are especially apprecia
tive of the stabibtv which the postal
savings bank affords
Probably congress could do no other
one thing that would so commend it to
the country as would the establish
ment of apostal savings bank system

Among the many lies sprung last
week was one by a certain member of
the populist ring at this place whose
name we will for the present withhold
was one to the effect that he had re
ceived a letter from W A Metzger
cajiHidute for county clerk on the dem
ocratic ticket and that Metzger said
ne wouia not accept trie nomination or
make a run fpr the office That this
was made up out of whole cloth is
proven by the following extract from
a letter from Mr Metzger
It has been rumored that I would
not accept the nomination If this is
true iiijyour vicinity please inform the
people to the contrary as 1 will accept
the nomination

decision of Interest
TJ S Land Office Valentine Neb
October 19 1S97
To The Democrat
A recent decision of the Hon Secre
tary of the Interior grants all who have
made homestead entry or who may
hereafter make entry of less than 160
acres the right to make additional en
tries until they get 160 acres They
are required to live upon said addition
al entries same as in the original entry
This decision will be of interest to
many who have made entry of less
than 160 acres thinking that by so do
ing they had exhausted their full right
Very respectfully
