Uncle Kuss Sago has permitted his

as well pleased with the prospects for

at all why Nebraska will not como up
with a good , old time republican ma

any detections from the republican
ranks. The party Is united on the
state ticket , and all that appears to
be necessary will bo for party work

To those who are strictly unpreju
diced the attempts of organised labor
to force the' , government to employ
union men Is as reprehenslblo as It
would bo for-any monopoly to en
deavor to secure control of any de
partment ( if the government. The
United Hlatuh govunimnl is complete
within itself , and Is the one pos
session of the people that should be
kept tree from all organizations of
every kind , whether they ho of capi
tal or labor. .Merit and desirability
should ho the only requirement of
government employes , as quality and
cheapness should be required In the
government's purchase of supplies.
Any departure from those is against
the Interests of all the people , and
It Is to be hoped that the government
may continue to bo free from any
such alliances.
The national bureau of labor has
been Investigating the stock argu
ments of the antl-admlnlstratlonlsts
to the effect that while wages have
advanced ten to fifteen per cent , the
cost of living has Increased fully
thirty per cent , and proposes to give
the public the llgures soon so that It
wilt know something about the bust-
ness when the argument Is again pre
sented. U Is already given out that
the two have Increased In equal pro
portion , the increase being between
fifteen and seventeen per cent. This
does not take Into consideration the
fact that whereas there wore thou
sands of men idle under the Cleveland -
land administration , since the repub
licans took charge every man who
has desired employment and is com
petent has received it almost con
tinuously , so that there would really
ho a largo balance In favor of labor.
The Increase in wages must bo
figured on the basis of those who
were employed during both eras.
One of the most popular young
men In Waterloo was married the
other day. If you don't believe ho
was popular just look at what his
friends did to him. The bride and
groom were followed to the train ,
where they were captured and bound
together with real handcuffs in such
fashion that no man except the pos
sessor of the key could put them
asunder. Then a barrel of rice was
procured and bride and groom were
properly stuffed with it. When the
train pulled in it was found to bo
gayly decorated. The manacled pris
oners were led aboard , an orchestra
appeared , and the whole party start
ed to share the wedding trip. Of course
there wore placards nnd all the con
volitional doings. It was not unti

U has never been moro pertinent
than now for Norfolk to consider mat
ters of trade exteiieion , and The News
Is in It lo do Its full share. Norfolk
la the business and geographical cen
ter of a large territory that Is In
creasing in Importance each year ,
and the business interests of Norfolk
should be In Imtimalo touch with
that territory. The News would not
favor an attempt to compete with the
country merchants of surrounding
towns. They are entitled to live anil
hold all the trade of which they are
capable , hut there are thousands of
dollars that go through Norfolk every
week and find their way into the big
mall order houses of the east and the
large department stores. This drain
on the country should be stopped , not
only In the Intoresta of the business
men but of the farmers and towns-
p'eoplc who are spending the money.
The Stantou Picket recently gave
n short sermon , appealing to the peo-
people there to spend their money at
home or us near homo as possible ,
that was the height of wisdom. It
advised its readers to trade at home ,
but If they were compelled to buy
away from homo to go to the nearest
possible trading point to spend their
money , ami it Is an appeal that should
bo made in every town1 In this sec
tion of the state. They should buy
at home If the goods they wish are
obtainable there , if not they should
come to Norfolk. If Norfolk cannot
supply their demands , then to Fremont
mont or Lincoln or Omaha. What is
desired is to have the money remain
in the state and be of benefit to al
the interests thereof. This can bo
done In a large extent by the mer
chants themselves. Millions of dollars
lars go out of the state every yeai
for goods that are handled in the
state , and this money should be kept
at home , to the advantage of every
business Interest and property owner
Those who have been careful in theli
comparisons between purchases fron
mail order houses and homo mer
chants , find .that there is no saving
to ho made , and that the mall order
business is unsatisfactory , but the
mail order houses make it their busl
ness to interest the people and mak <
it convenient for them to trade. I
should be the business of Norfolk am
other state merchants to approximate
their methods , They can meet the
competition , but the people do no
reali/e it and a campaign or educa
tion should bo inaugurated
The News Is attempting to conver
this territory and interest the pco
pie In Norfolk , and has met with gral
Ifylng encouragement since it was
determined to enlarge the scope o
its service. It finds that it can nice
competition in evoy particular , ant
proposes to widen Its field to a large
extent. It wishes the co-operation o
the merchants , and will do its fill
share by them. There should bo a
mutual effort toward this end on th
part of all the business people. Kee

at the nifderson home this morning '
and made a note of the swell outfit. '
First , there was the swell colonial
carved front china closet. It is a.
beauty , having been bought with |
95,000 tobaccco tags. Cy must have
chewed himself almost to death get
ting the wherewithal to possess the
article. There are some rare specl- ,
mens of cut glass in the china closet , <
which were secured with 2,000 Muscle
Hilda which had to be bought in
order to got the coupons. The dining -
ing room table is something that is
worth going miles to see. It is said I
that It took three men two years to |
put the pollslon the top. The fam
ily has been eating cheese for live
years in order to get the 800 tickets
necessary to draw the table. The
.family used nothing but condensed
milk for nine years before they
caught the words "O'Hoolohan's
Host , " which entitled them to the
grand upright piano which ornaments
the parlor. The swell ancestral clock
which stands eight feet high , came
with a wagon load of baking powder.
It is a beautiful ornament , and higlb
ly varnished , finished in golden oak ,
the latest stylo. There are other ar
ticles of furniture too numerous to
mention secured with hams , health
foods , whiskey , rouge , powder and.

holstered plush furniture in the
house that a person could fall down
almost anywhere and not get hurt.
