to pass through the throes of a content

of tho hard feeling within tho ranks of
tho dominant party that is engendered

Not forjyears has there boon suoh a
demand for Northeastern Nebraska real
estate as at the present time Laud
seekers ore coming into this section every
day from eastern states and the southern
part of Nebraska hunting for homes
They have at last become convinced
that Northeastern Nebraska is the best
portion of the state nud now many
want a piece of it As a matter of fuot
the soil ofthl8 section is ery similar to
that of Iowa which is conceded to be
the beat agricultural state in the union
While the Boil is probably fully as pro
ductive the prices of land are not nearly
bo high as yet but they will be before
manymoreyears Ono real estato agent
in Norfolk states that he has sold 2000
acres of land since the first of January
and is in constant receipt of inquiries
or more It will not be long before
prices will be decidedly advanced and
those who contemplate owning a piece

The Iowa City Republican relates an
experience with which every newspaper
man is familiaras follows The editor
of a paper printed In a thriving little
town only a few miles from Iowa City
was asked the other day to publish au
article roasting a citizen Certainly
he said to the caller what shall I say
He was furnished with an outline of
what was wanted and wrote an article
that was a scorcher ThatB splendid
exclaimed the friend delighted when
the article was read to him that is
right thatll make his old hair crinkle
AU right said the editor lets see what
are your initials Good heavens
said the citizen yoa ore not going
to sign my name to that Why not
asked the editor I wouldnt have any
one know I had anything to do with that
for the world I cant afford to get into
a scrap with my neighbors The editor
smiled benevolently and Bald Why
should I mix up in a scrap that does not
concern ma Why should you expect
nw to assume the blame for the publica
tion of an article to which you are afraid
to sign your name The man stopped
the paper and went away mad
