The person who etui write or spook
the immu of the president's assailant ,
Czolgosz , without an effort should as-
Buretlly bo looked upon with suspicion.
There will not bo much money lu
husking corn nt three cents a bushel this
fall and if the farmers desire to do the
right thing by the men who gather
their prospective wealth they will raise
the price this soasou and nmko it au ob
ject for the husker to Hud every ear of
the grain or anything that looks like an
ear. They will probably also bo justi
fied in searching them for concealed
kernels after each day's work , as they
do in the diamond fields.
As the Picket has previously re
marked , it is simply wonderful what
Nebraska soil and climate cau do for
corn even under the most unfavorable
conditions. Think of it. There has
been less than an inch of rain over most
of Stan ton conuty since July began ,
and In some parts less than half that
amount. The temperature during
nearly four weeks was awful. Corn
wilted , the leaves rolled and tassels and
silks were fired. And through all of
this corn has passed , not unharmed to
be sure , but in surprisingly good condi
tion. It is simply astonishing. If there
is another section of the country any-
\vhero that could show up as well nu-
dr like conditions , it has not yet been
discovered , or if discovered it has not
. < been reported. Stanton Picket.
From the outrage to President McKinley -
ley at Buffalo has risen a hero , James
Benjamin Parker , the colored man who
grabbed the assassin and prevented him
from shooting again. It is peculiar that
the race which has the right , if any has ,
to complain of oppression in the Amer
ican republic should raise a man who
would be the first to take a stop against
the murderer who would rob that re
public of its chief. The people of
Parker were for yours the slaves of
those whoso government was founded
on freedom and yet that race has never
produced a man to violently attack the
government. On the contrary such at
tacks have come from men who were
never oppressed by it , who obtained
their viuioiiH prini'iplim in foreign lands
and who eiunu lu-ro that they might use
the freedom of thin country In arrange-
Ing and putting in practice * tholr diabol-
icul plots. The lusson to bo learned is
that Parker's people tire infinitely more
desirable as citi/ons than people of the
A Day < > ! ' HIIH | > CIIHO.
The nation is again plunged in gloom
over the reports from the president's
bcdsido and HO suddenly was the change
brought nlxiut that the people were lit
tle prepared for the shock. Yesterday
All were confident of his early and com-
ileto recovery. The utmost confidence
in his ability to survive the assassin's
foul blow was expressed by tlio physi
cians and found a glad reception in the
luarts of the American public. Their
joy found constant expression and the
gloom that surrounded them during the
Irst few days after the assault , was rap-
dly and ofl'ootually dispelled , soj thai
ivhon the report that ho was sinking

my moment was received it ciuno with
nn unexpected ness that instantly de
pressed their buoyant spirits in n depth
of sadness for which they were illy pro-
p.irod. The news spread with wonder
ful swiftness and profound sorrow was
depicted on tlio faces that a moment be
fore were cheerful.
Later reports that the patient was
rallying slightly again awakened hope
and further news of his condition is
eagerly awaited with mingled hope and

fore feet. To prevent this each man
wears across his breast a two or three
inch thick matting. Armed with n
spear , with a club attachment at the
other end , they ride upon swift horses
into a herd.
With the agility and equipoise of cir
cus riders they stand erect upon their
horses and use their si > cars and clubs.
The kangaroo Is able to Jump clear
over n horse. As the game Is bagged
it is skinned , and the skin is stretched
on the ground and j > egged down to pre

meat for the camp.
