How We Get Rich.
To enable others to know the
secret of how many country edi
tors become rich , will tell you as
follows : A child is born in the
neighborhood ; the attending phy- |
sician gets § 10 , the editor gives the j
loud-lunged youngster and the
happy parents a send off and gets
§ 0. It is christened ; the minister
gets § 5 and the editor gets $00.
It grows up and marries ; the edi
tor publishes another long-winded
and flowery article. The minister
gets § 10 and a piece of cako and
the editor gets § 000. In course of
time it dies and the doctor gets
§ 50 to § 100 and the editor publish
es notice of death , lodge and so
ciety resolutions , a lot of poetry
and a card of thanks and gets
§ 0000. No wonder so many editors
get rich. Ex.
A "prim" lady friend received
the following reply from a good
house-keeper in answer to the
question why she allowed her chil
dren and husband to "litter" up
every room in the house , and the
sentiment will find lodgment in the
heart of every home-loving person
in the land : "The marks of little
muddy feet upon the floor can be
easier removed than the stain when
those little feet go down into the
mud of the highway of evil. The
prints of the 'little fingers on the
window pane' cannot shut out the
sunshine half so much as the shad
ows that darken the mother's heart
over the one 'who is but a name'
through the coming years. And
if my John finds his home a refuge
from care and trouble and his
greatest happiness within its four
walls is when he can put his boots
in the rocking chair and hang up
his coat on the floor every day in
the week. And if I can stand it I
cannot see that it is anybody else's
business. ' ' Rushville Standard.
Judge Kinkaid returned Monday
from a business and pleasure trip
to Mexico. He was accompanied
on the trip by Omaha friends and
they got down into the tropical
regions of the republic. The Judge
says Mexico City is a very inter
esting place , as is also the whole
country and people. He visited
many places of interest , among
which were the president's palace ,
where he received a cordial re
ception from President Diaz , and
some of the principal cathedrals
where are displayed very rich fur
nishings , there being over twenty
toss of silver overlaying the alters
in a single place of worship and
vast quantities of gold used. Of
the commercial advantages of the
republic , the judge says they are
many. There are now some § 300-
000,000 United States capital in
vested in various enterprises in
Mexico. The trip afforded the
party the opportunity to see veg
etation in all stages of develop
ment , from corn about ready to
husk in southern Mexico to .the
farmer in the field with the planter
in Nebraska. O'Neill Frontier.
The story is told of an old bache
lor who bought a pair of socks and
found attached to one a note with
these words : "I am a young lady
of twenty and desire to correspond
with a bachelor with a view to
matrimony. " The name and ad
dress were given. The bachelor
wrote and in a few days got this
"Mamma was married twenty
years ago. Evidently the mer
chant of whom you bought those
socks did not advertise , or he
would have sold them long ago.
Mother handed me your letter and
said possibly I might suit , I am
eighteen. " Hamilton Rustler.
The above is an old and true
saying. If a man wishes to sell
goods , not merely own them , he
must advertise , not spasmodically ,
however. If you want a continual
trade you should advertise contin
ually. The merchant that adver
tises spasmodically may expect
nothing more than spasmodic buy
ers. Your local paper is the one
medium by which local merchants
can freeze out the mail order and
catalogue houses. Keya Paha
Long Pine is authority for the
statement that the C. &N. W. R'y.
will in a few years straighten the
track between Atkinson and Long
Pine by building directly between
the two points thus saving seven
miles. This change would leave
Stuart three miles , Newport four
miles and Bassett three miles north
of the new railroad.
It is also stated on what is con
sidered good authority that the di
vision between Long Pine and
Chadron is too long and that the
North-Western will in the near
future make a change that will
greatly improve the operation of
train service. The plan is to do
away with the division at Long
Pine and establish two new divis
ion stations , one of which will be
located at Atkinson and the other
Another rumor in circulation is
that the Inter-State Telephone Co.
( Wm. Krotter ) has in mind the
building of a line up the Niobrara
river from Spencer to Valentine.
This new line will intersect the
various lines the company already
has and afford excellent communi
cations. Rock County Leader.

Boston , May 11 , 1905.
EDITOR DEMOCRAT :
Twelve months ago I made to
the American people in the''Fore
word" of my story , "Frenzied
Finance , " a promise to expose the
operations of the most nefarious
and destructive band of brigands
this or any other country has been
The "system" met my promise
with ridicule , and their hirelings
from one end of the land to the
other chorused , "He will never
dare tell ! "
In the June number of Every
body's Magazine , published on the
20th of May , I tell the first great
crime of amalgamated in a double
chapter of 2i,000 words. I give
in a brick-and-mortar style the de
tails of this act by which the
American people were robbed of
§ 36,000,000 through the agency of
the biggest national bank in Amer
ica , the National City ( "Standard
Oil" ) bant of New York.
I feel and I think you will
agree with me when you have
read what I tell that it is of vital
importance to the whole American
people that they every man ,
woman and child know the facts I
So far I have given a year of my
time and some § 600,000 of my
money to get my message to the
American people , and I would ask
if , because of this fact and the fur
ther one that I seek nothing in re
turn for my work ( for I have
nothing to sell and no office or oth
er thing to ask of the American
people ) , you cannot see it in the
light of a public duty to do all in
your power to get the June chap
ter of my story to the people of
your community. If so , I leave
bo your good judgement the way
mil the means to do so.
