You can satisfy yourself as to the truth of that dtaremont by

It is an axiom , says Farm Home , al-
most as old as civilization that in "hot
climates no man will labor for himself
who can compel another to labor for
him. " And so tropical lands have al-
ways been of masters and slaves , and
they aiwaj's will be , though the system
may not be called slavery.

A resolution has been introduced be
fore our state legislature providing for
a "Bird Day" lor Nebraska. When so
many field birds are ruthlessly slaughtered - j 1 j
tered every year which are a great
benefit to the public in destroying in-

sects , the damage of which has reason
ably been estimated at $3,000,000 an-
nnally. the pertinence of a bird day is
at once deemed advisable and prudent.
Governor Poynter declines to accept
or use railroad passes. He says he
takes this position , not as a matter of
policy which he wished to impose on
am body else or to cast anv reflections
on any other person who did not do as
he did , but because he had taken the
position he did in his inaugural , and
believing that he was right in the mat
ter , he felt that it was incumbent on
him to do as he had done.
Quite a little sensation was produced
in the senate at Washington the other
da } ' . Senator Caffery was reading
from a book when Senator Spooner
arose and asked.What book is the
senator reading from ; " ' Senator Caf

The longest sermon on record was
preached by-the Rev. Isaac Barrow , a
Puritan preacher of the seventeenth
century , who once delivered a sermon ,
in Westminster Abbe } ' , lasting three
hours and a half ; and the shortest sermon -
mon ever preached was perhaps the
sermon which Doctor Whewell was
fond of repeating from the text , "Man '
is born unto trouble as the sparks flv m
The sermon occupied barely a minute
delivery , tha folio .viuy : being a ver-
batum report : "I shall divide the dis-
course iulo three heads : 1 , Man's ingress - a

Live Stock Notes , S.
The cattle in this vicinity , saj's the
Pullman correspondent of Whitman
Sun , are all in good condition. It has
been , necessary to feed but little. People
who have been here for years assure
us that there has not been a winter
equal to this since 1882. However
there is yet time for severe storms , but
( tie ] condition of the cattle will bo such
that their safety is secured.
The Drovers' Journal takes a very
sensible view that tnere will be a 'de
crease in the demand for stock cattle
cm account of higher priced corn , and
an increased demand for good fat beef
cattle , owing to the natural scarcity.
In other words , the tendency of clearer
grain will be to widen the gap in prices
between feeding cattle and those of
prime marketable condition.
It is currently reported that the cattle
lost by Brockman , Jewett and Cowan ,
for which a reward of $700 has been
offered have been found but we arc uncg
able < this week to give the full particu-
lars. It appears that unknown parties
have stolen the cattle and secreting
them in the bluffs along the Missouri
river for some time , and upon hearing
of the reward that had been offered
made : < an attempt to get them across the
river and to market , or away , when
they . were apprehended by parties on
the lookout. We will be able to give
full particulars next weolc. There wore
in the neighborhood of forty-seven head
of the stolen cattle. Springview Herald
Kansas City Drovers Telegram : E.
W. Ilolcomb , representing the Hol-
comb Cattle Co. . one of the largest
ranch owners in Western Kansas , was
at the yards today. Mr. Ilolcomb
brought in three ears of western steers
that were sold on the local market ,
ilangn men in Finney county , Mr. Ilol
comb said , have suffered severely on
account of the bad weather this winter.
The cattle on hands arc in poor condi
tion , and unless things improve , will
go on grass next spring in very poor
shape Ko corn is raised in that part
of the country , and the cattle arc fed
only roughness , alfalfa and cane. The
supply of cattle is large and a good
deal heavier than at this time last year ,
in fact , nearly twice as many arc owned
in the county. *
Cattle averaged the highest in price
last . 3 ear since 1885 , with cows and
heifers relatively higher than steers.
Western range cattle were on an aver
age 30 cents per 100 pounds higher than
during 1897 , and the highest since 1884 ,
Texas cattle showing a similar advance.
Hogs sold at the highest prices since
189 , , but averaged nearly § 3 per 100
pounds lower than in 1893. The aver
age price of sheep , $4 25 , was the high
est in many years , and $1.45 per 100
pounds higher than in 1894. Lambs
averaged 40 cents per 100 pounds high
than t , in 1897 , and $1.80 higher than
Peter Jansen , a sheepman of Nebras
, wrote 150 letters of inquiry to feed
throughout that state , asking for
the number of sheep on feed thisseason. ;
From the replies received he figures the
shortage at 40 per cent as compared
with a year-ago One striking feature

heavy weights of sheep and lambs. A

During the past year there wore ship
from Chicago 210.350 cattle for expert - 0
port , a decrease of 37,000 from the pre
vious year. England is our best con
sumer , and fewer foreign cattle were
required in that country than usual ,
owing to the serious drought over there
which forced ir.ar.y cattle to market
prematurely. Exporters , of course ,
send across the Atlantic many cattle in
addition to those purchased in the Chi
cage market , great numbers being
bought every year direct from the far
mers in Ohio , Kentucky , West Virginia .
Virginia , and other states. About 375-
cattle were landed in Great Britain
from the United States during the i ear ,
against 398,000 in 1897. Canada ex PI- '
ported , 101,370 cattle in 1898 , being 18- ,
less than in 1S97.
During J the past year the Chicago re
ceipts of horses reached the high-water j
mark , the arrivals footing up 118.754 A
head , against 111,601 in 1897. The
local market developed an increase in Fo '
sales of 9,381 horses over the preceding
year. The most unpleasant feature of
trade is the fact that there are
thousands upon thousands of horses in '
middle western states of marketable
that cannot be sold at satisfactory
prices to their owners. There are too
many common horses and far too few
choice animals. Chicago Letter in
