J. C. Dahlman , the cowboy
mayor of Omaha , has tried his
hand at the editorial lariet on
"The Chancellor , " a monthly
journal published in Omaha by
Quinby & Lynnequest. The first
page has a picture of W. J. Bry
an and his son looking through a
gate at a pen of chickens on his
Lincoln farm. Mr. Bryan is
dressed in farm clothes , without a
coat , and has a pair of rubber
boots on , looking much like a
farmer. On the cover is the picture -
' ture of Jim throwing a lasso and
1 the circle is directly over the Bry
an picture with that part of the
cover inside the rope circle cut
out , showing the lasso encircling
the picture of Mr. Bryan on first
page. The journal is not large
only 20 pages. The subjects are
interesting and the stories well
told , some of which are a part of
the history of Jim's western life ,
and since the articles are not copy
righted we expect to reprint some
of them of most interest to people
here. % Look for one next week
and tell your neighbor about it.
We notice , also , some good arti
cles from other writers of fame ,
one of whom many of us know.

Hans ami His Wood 1'iSe.
It was about two months before
Christmas when Hans began to
think about getting his mother a
shawl to keep her warm.
Hans and his mother were -very
poor and didn't have money like
some other people to get Xmas
Mr ? . Gray , Hans' mother , wash
ed and Hans chopped wood for his
neighbor. Hans didn't have many
friends but he had four friends
and their names were llobert ,
Paul , Dave and Ben.
Mr. ITannan had given Hans a
cord of wood to chop and told him
ic would give him five dollars if
le got it done before Christmas
Hans was thinking abouc the
shawl and said he would try.
Two days before Xmas , now ,
and Hans hasn't got his woodpile
chopped. Hans told his friends
about it and late that night these
'our boys chopped till it was done
after Hans and his mother had
gone to bed.
The next morning Mr. Hanuan
came to see if he had it all done ,
liobert , Ben , Paul and Dave were
rolling near the woodpile in the
sand laughing. Hans knew that
it was them that finished his vrood-
pile. Mr. Qannan handed the § 5
Dill. Hans said : "Is it mine ? "
"res , " said Mr. Liannan. "Thank
you , " said Hans , Hans then turn
ed and went down town. He
Dought a nice shawl. Mrs. Gray
found it in the morning. She did
not think only of the shawl but to
think that her son loved her so
much as to buy her a shawl. After
that she said : * k 'Tis not all boys
will do this. "
