As national bankers Millard and
Diotricli were all right , but as senators ,
Nebrask.i has no reason to feel proud
of either of them.
The State Journal says Treasurer
Steuffer is "faithful to the trust. "
Where is there a republican who is not
faithful to the trust ?
An Iowa doctor was told by a farm
er that if he returned to the town he
would kill him. The doctor returned
to find out whether he would be killed
or not and the coroners jury decided
that he was.
From the reports of the different
republican county conventions it is evi
dent that every county in the state has
a preferred candidate for some state
office. As there are not enough offices
to go around they may have some fun
in adjusting claims.
A Mormon preacher went up against
a game of faro in New York a few days
ago and is said to have lost $28,000.
The gamblers were arrested for run
ning a game of chance but they can
easily prove that it was not a game of
chance the preacher had no chance at
The republicans had their conven
tion last week and got all tangled up
in trying to tell that our county com
missioners were dishonest and that
they were gerrymandering and all that
because they joined Wood Lake , Dewey
Lake and Cleveland precincts onto the
first district where it rightfully belongs
and should have belonged for years.
They also nominated Ed Clark for
county attorney. You'll have to watch
these republcans. They're tricky.
They're the kind that yell "stop thief. "
The fiercest "attack on the army"
during last week was made by Presi
dent Roosevelt. In a letter to Bishop
Lawrence of Massachusetts , the presi
dent said : "In reference to these
cruelties 1 agree with every word in
your address. No provocotion , now
ever great , can be accepted as an ex
cuse for misuse of the necessary sever
ity of war. and , above all , not for tor-
ure of any kind or shape. I have di
rected that court-martials be held un -
der conditions which will give me the
right of review. " No democrat or pop
ulist has made any such an ' 'attack on
the army" as that.

Pattern's Sun Proof Paints endure in any kind of weather.
They are appreciated most in the worst climates. They
are guaranteed to wear well for five years but very likely
you need not have to repaint then unless you wish to. They
endure because the ingredients are pure , the proportions ( Pat-
ton's secret ) are correct , the mixing and grinding done by
powerful , exact machines. More about paint in our free book of
paint knowledge. Send for it.

A ball game was played last Tuesday between the
Sparks boys and the Valentine nine in which the Valen-
tine nine was victorious by a few tallies. Several mis-
takes were made by players on both sides but the real
bummy playingwas perhaps more as a result of careless- 2
