Never lose a chance to put In a good

which it hopes to refill. Hut If the

The new ( Ionium tariff which will
go Into effect March 1 Is not causing
great excitement at Washington. The

Is no evidence that congress is innk-
Ing any effort to relieve the situation.
What the ( ioniums demand is an equal

as advantageously as America does on
the ( lernmn market. In short they
There has been much talk and news
paper comment for the past year about
the pievalonco of corruption and dis
honesty. The pessimistic wall gloom
ily for the startling disclosures and
Investigations and question the exist
ence of honesty nnd Integrity In po
litical and business life. They forget
that the very Investigations prove the
falseness of their theories. These
fraudulent practices are not new.
They have been going on for years and
no objections have been made to them.
The fact that they are now exposed
and condemned Is positive proof of
an aroused conscience which sees that
the same standard of honesty Is neccs *
snry In public life that Is required In
private business. The great majority
of the people stand for honesty anil
fair dealing , or the disclosures would
no longer startJo and the Investiga
tions would cease. It Is because the
great heart and conscience of the people
plo are right and public opinion calls
for truth nnd honor that the whole
country Is stirred when fraud Is re
vealed. Much political capital has
been made by the democrats because
of these revelations and the worst pos
sible construction has been put upon
every act of President Hoosovelt and
his cabinet. Hut good has and will re
sult from them In the end.
Just now efforts are being made
through the United States to In
troduce and pass laws restricting mar-
rlago to persons who Imvo passed
physical and mental examinations at
least , and who shall have shown them
selves tit In a financial way to with
stand the burdens and responsibilities
that llfo thrusts upon households. The
matter Is not taken seriously at all
times , but there was a living example
brought Into Norfolk last week of the
extreme fitness of such a measure.
Two people , a man and his wife , both
of them insane , nnd with two tiny
children , were brought to the Norfolk
hospital for treatment. It Is seldom
that a man and his wife are both In
sane , but It so happened with this couple -
plo from Wnkefiold. Ono of the llttlo
children Is a babe In arms and It was
a pitiful sight when Sheriff Menrs car-
rfed her back to Wayne to glvo away
to anybody who would take her. There
la every reason to bollovo that those
two children , when tluiyjyow up , will
both bo Insane It miroly scorns wrong
that thin couple were allowed to mar
ry. They have brought inlHory and
hurdciiH nnd woe Into the -\vorld , and
the world iniiHt take care of thorn be-
CIUIHO they are Inllrm and helpless nnd
Irresponsible. And this In but , n single -
glo Instance of a far-reaching truth.
Tomorrow IH Ht. Valentino's day.
Have you prepared to Bond a bouquet
to your wife ? She's entitled to It.
Yeiu-H and years ago , when Hho wasn't
your wife , you tnado It a particular
point on the fourteenth day of each
February , to Holoct a handsome souve
nir , done up In delicate blno ribbon ,
and send It to her to carry Its mcHsago
of Hcntlmont. And there IB all the
more reason why , now that she Is
yours , you'Hhould keep right on with
the piactlcc. It needn't ho n big val
entine , nor expoiiHlvo , but It will bo
a ynlontlno nil the on mo If you take
the trouble to nolect It and Bend It ,
Maybe It will n violet or n ro e or n
now song or Homo other llttlo token ,
but whatever It bo , It will carry more
hnppIncHH with It than all of the val
entines that ever were sent before
your wedding day. Perhaps It will bo
merely a pleasant word. That would
ho a Valentino In some cases worth re
ceiving. Hut whatever It may bo , It
will bo worth whllo to remember your
wlfo with a niesHago of some sort.
For , looking back over your llfo , the
wont pleasant momenta that you re-
will , perhaps , nro thoBO whoa you have
done Homo llttlo trilling thing that
brought a smile to Homeono'H eyes.
It is the Valentino memories back In
the grammar school that last long.
When , back at the ago of twelve , you
sent a little bunch of USHIIO paper with
laroy edges to the girl at the other
side of the room , who were long braids
down her back , you did something
worth whllo because It brought Joy to
the long braldH of hair and , consequently
quently to you. It made you a bettor
boy. Hy means of these valentines ,
In one form or another the year round ,
you won that girl when slo grew to
womanhood for your own helpmeet
forever , and then , perhaps , you may
mve forgot tun the fourteenth of Fob
nmry and neglected Iho old fashioned
message. Hut that's no excuse. It Is
the little things day after day that
count the niostl for' this1 world's cheer
and joy , and n valentine tomorrow will
make you live longer , feel better nnd
look younger , to miy > nothing of the

NORFOLK'S PACKING PUO.II2CT.
The Fremont Tribune misses the
point In connection with the projected
packing plant which is to be estab
lished In Norfolk by 100 commercial
travelers , each of whom Is to put $100
Into ( lie plant at the start and $100 a
month for live months thereafter. The
Tribune thinks that this would be out
doing what was done in the case of
the sugar factory , but It Is an entirely
dissimilar case. In the sugar factory ,
the money was given as n bonus whllo
In this case the money is not to bo giv
en at all , but instead It Is to be In
vested by the commercial men as a
money-making Institution. They have
faith in Norfolk and Norfolk's location
and ate not giving away a penny. In
regard to the market of a packing
plant , the Tribune insists that it Is
tlio foreign and not the local market
that counts. Whllo It is true , of
cour.se , that the fprelgn market Is es
sential , else why should each of the
big Omaha packing houses Imvo a man
In this.territory , IVghting' hard for the
business of the northern Nebraska
meat man each week ? In commenting
the Tribune says :
"Norfolk IB getting some advertising
with respect to a contemplated packIng -
Ing house at that point. It IB said that
ono hundred traveling men will finance
It nnd that they will sell the products
as a side line to their regular goods
and thus save the expense of dispos
ing of the product of the plant. Hut
Norfolk Is not likely to permit Itself
to swell up over the prospects. It Is
well understood that tho. sale of packIng -
Ing house products does not depend
upon the market In this section of
country to any great extent They
must go east nnd abroad. When Nor
folk gets a hundred traveling men who
are willing and able to put In a thou
sand dollars apleco It will have beaten
Its record of raising n bonus of $150-
000 for a sugar factory. "

FANCY DREiS PARTY
Three Ladles Entertain 150 Guests In
[ From -mc&dny's Dally. ]
Marqunrdt hall Is enjoying a strange
scene this afternoon in the manner of
n fancy dress party and luncheon giv
en by Mrs. C. F. Shaw , Mrs. A. Rand-
klov and Mrs , O. L. Hydo. It was n
vnlentine party nnd the scheme of dec
orations included nothing but hearts
in a red and white effect. A great
canopy of crimson red hearts , flung in
countless strings from the pillars and
lights to the sides of the walls , spread
low over the heads of the guests. The
tables were arranged In the shape or
a great heart. A vnso of red carna-
tloiis and red heart-shaped place cards
were nt each table. From the large * '
heart on the place card three llttlo
streamers depended on which hung
smaller hearts with the Initials of the
hostesses on them. *
The costumes of the guests covered
every phase of feminine llfo that has
boon seen or written about. There
were Martha Washlngtons , Hcd Hiding
Hoods , Colonial dames , Indian maids ,
paper dresses , and so on to the num
ber of 150 guests. After a four course
luncheon was served a musical pro
gram was tendered. A fancy dress
party IH a novelty In Norfolk and as
such certainly proved an Instant suc
cess In the response of the guests to
the demands of the occasion and hi
the real enjoyment of the effort.
