ocrat wants us to enlighten them
ate what's the mit.ter with S iel-
don being our next governor. On
the theorv thatanopen confession , '
even to democrat , i-5 good for the '
sul , we. will admit that we are
disappointed in our first estimate 1
of his being a broad , liberal mihd-
e I man , capable of withstanding
t ie influence of a clique of politi
cal boosters who have become a
fixture of our state capitol , who
are in politics for only a selfish
personal interest. With this in-
il ience our governor was led to
believe that he was greater than I
his party , without it we think he
would have made good and not ig
nored the major part of the state
when selecting material to fill po
sitions of trust which caused an i
indifference in the rank and file
that proved fatal to his re election
and endangered the success of the
party in the state and as there is
an abundance of tried and true '
timber in the republican ranks '
there is no necessity of taking any
on probation. Atkinson Graphic.
Anatomy For Beginners.
Proceeding in a southerly di
rection from the torso , we have
the hips , use.ful for padding , and
the legs. The. legs hold up the
body , and are sometimes used in
walking , but when riding in auto
mobiles they take up valuable
space which otherwise might be
employed to better advantage.
Attached to the legs are the feet.
Some varieties of feet are cold.
Some people are born with cold
feet , others acquire cold feet , ami
still others have cold feer. thrust

Is John Williams of Ains =
worth Dead ?
St. Louis , Mo , Doc. 27. If
John William.- who
- , formerly re-
si.led at Ainsworth , Xeb. , is still
alive , as the tracing of a p'loto-
graph held by the St.Louis police
indicates , his aged mother mo irn-
at the grave of an unknown
mm whom she believed to bi- her
son , after he had been taken from
the river at Valentine , Xeb. , Oc
tober IS , last.
Doubt was cast upon the identity
of the body supposed to have been
Williams today , when the police
learried that a postal card photo
of three men , one of whom is n cognized -
ognized by his relatives as \ \ il-
liams , was taken by a St Louis
photographer during the latter
part of November , a month or
more after the supposed Williams
was drowned or murdered and his
body cast into the river near the
Nebraska town. The photograph
er is positive about the time at
which the picture was taken , and
unless the possible existence of a
double for Williams is taken ii to
'consideration , it makes the a flair
a singular mystery. The police
are now trying to identify ihe two
companions if Williams in the
At the time the body was found
the authorities believed the man
was murdered. On November 24 :
Mrs. Williams identified the body
by marks as being that of her son ,
who disappeared from his home
more than a year airo , after he had
quarreled with his wife. From
that time on nothing had been
lizard from him. Two d.i.vs after
Mrs. Williams identified the body
