FRITZ : n work promptly attended to- WESTERN NEWS-DEMOCRAT EGBERT GOOD , Editor and Publisher 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. An examination of the books of state treasurer Meserve has been made by an expert accountant of the Fidelity and Deposit and found all ' company , monere eys accounted for to a cent. Where is ; the republican , a tax-payer , who does ' not applaud this in comparison with the record of the late republican state treasurer , Hartley1 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 fery replied : ' 'This is the constitution of the United StatesIt seems tint the imperialists have so completely abandoned all faith in the constitution that they don't know it when they hear i' ; raad. Nebraska Independent. 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 upward. " 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 gress into the world ; 2 , His progress through the world : 3 , His egress out of " the world. "First , his ingress into the world is cr . ' ° , , . in naked and bare. "Secondly , his progress through the world is trouble and care. ka Thirdly , his egress out of the world ers nobodv knows where. "To conclude "If we live well here , we shall live well there. wit "I can tell you no more if I preach of . year. " Then he gave the benediction , is hea Senator Mason * , of Illinois , a republi- can , in a speech in the United States i ii Senate January 10 , took issue with , win President AIcKiuley on the question of liar expansion , and said : peel "The Filipino is begging to treat with us as to his own landhe ; acknowledges - edges our gallant services ; there is no gun iionest commercial treaty that an hon- i I'll ' nation could ask that they are not willing to consent to. The } * want lib- wjr iriy , as we did , and when 70.000,000 people have heard their cry for mercy | si sen and independence , the father in New adc England will plead for the father in Manila : the mother in Illinois will pray cag boi the poor mother in the islands of 111 sea ; the fathers will vote as the Vii mothers pray ; the poisoned views of eec selfishness will have had its run. and fro God help the parly that urges war on ; i < native who defends only his liberc ties and his home. Shall we amend L 000 and print Lincoln's Gettysburg speech , that it will read , 'A government of of the people , by a part of the pee , for a few of the people ? * ' Senator Hoar , of Massachusetts , sees ahead of him the rock which will drive the old line republicans out of the party himself included. He says : the "I stood in a humble capacity by the cradle of the republican party. I 0o the not mean if I can help it , to follow its : age hearse. When you raise the flag over the Philippines as an emblem of do minion and acquisition you take it down from independence hall. The Monroe doctrine is gone. Ever } ' Euro pean nation , every European alliance has the right to acquire dominion in the this hemisphere when we acquire it in the other . " , _ _ ' 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 ml 1894. 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 the sheep trade at the present time the remarkably poor demand for heavy weights of sheep and lambs. A sheepman remarked a few days ago that ho cou'd not remember a time when heavy fat sheep and lambs were harder tosull. 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 National Stockman. Strayed or Stolen.
