Now It is said that England Is golm to annex Egypt. Why not ? Grcn Britain took everything of value li Ihnt country a long time ago. The latest political rumor Is tha Wall street is raising a fund of $5 000,000 for the purpose of defeatlni President Taft for re-election. The coffee trust In Brazil by fore Ing the price up so high Is dolni much to encourage the growth of tin plant in Porto KIco and elsewhere. Now that n Now York woman lia lost $ ' 1,000 out of her stocking , one' faith In the most standard method of safe deposit are severely shaken. President Taft went down In a goli mine the other day. Wore this 189C ho would now have to go down In : silver mine or bo lined up with th money power. There Is talk of a $3,000,000 shorl ago In the Washington navy yard but the valuable time , of the clerk should not bo taken hunting for a 111 tlo item like that. The Wrights think they have a di vice that can be balanced in the ai at any time , but a teterboard over th barn fence Is as far as we care t go in that direction. The big trust magnates accept sul poena service much moro meekly tha of yore. It used to bo the fashlonabl game to dodge Uncle Sam's men jus as you would a book agent. The Printers Cost congress Is mee ing in Boston , but as printers a rork purely out of their passional love of the human race , no one wl say anything about higher prices. Premier Stolypln of Russia Is sal to have possessed a kind heart. Th : might have been a safeguard to hii in some countries but in Russia it ! only a coat of mail that Is of an avail. Mr. Taft was fed on buffalo sten In South Dakota , and If Mrs. Ta vould only get up these novelties f < fchn at homo , perhaps ho would I content to settle down in the whii house. After seeing the butcher chop i his meat into the small pieces yc can now buy for a quarter , wo fe sure that he is the greatest conimc divisor we used to study about school. Mr. Taft has travelled 208,728 mill since entering the government ser ice in 1900 , but If they figured the distance ho has travelled in Inn ing for lost golf balls , the total won lie much larger. Mr. Taft Is opposed to barbai yells by college boys , but if tin weren't allowed to rend holes in tl aiv they'd probably tear down tl college building , which would 1 moro expensive. As it will be for the benefit of ! concerned to got a verdict in tl steel trust suit as quickly as posslbl ire hope the case is not postpom for a year every time one of tl lawyers wants to take a vacation.

The lottery Is not the only game chance that Is open to the Cuban , has In fact encouraged other forms Bumbling made all kinds of chan speculation respectable. If we mig forget the old Louisiana lotteries , o Tory own , wo would bo tempted read Cuba a solemn discourse on tl .eubject , but our shame Is too recer It Is a nasty business , wo of America know from a disgraceful experience. Wall street paid down Its good money for Mr. Taft on representa tion that ho would stand without hitching and was safe for any lady to drive.

JUDGE WELCH'S RECORD. It is seldom that the ability of Judge can be given the high tribui that can be paid Judge A. A , Welc republican nominee for re-election i the bench In the Ninth judicial dl trict. The supreme court of Nebrasl during the past sixteen months i Judge Welch's term , has affirmed e actly 90 percent of his decisions , record that can be claimed by hi few Judges in the country and whic in itself is the best evidence to tl people of the district that they hai a man of splendid talent on the bem at the present time , and ono who they may well afford to keep there. The young man or the young worm who finds an education within h reach ought to seize it and it Is fc tunatoly true In this land of ours , th no man who aspires to an educatli need go without it It is within tl reach of all. There are hundreds boys and girls who are working the way through the colleges of the cou try. And no man or woman who go the education will ever live lot enough to regret it. An education the ono thing that no ono over r grets. No matter what fortune i misfortune comes to ono In later HI the knowledge ho has acquired , tl habits of thought and study and tl formation , these things are never lit ed among a man's regrets. MR. BRYAN'S HAMMER. It Is Httlo credit to Mr. Bryan th he should bo so partisan in his po tics as to bo everlastingly impugnit the motives of those who happen be of different opinion. It is lltt credit to him that ho should insln ate that President Taft has allow < and will allow the "trusts" to dictate supreme court appointments. Not even his bitterest enemies charge President Taft with being any thing but sincere In his work. Many disagree with him and many claim he Is a poor politician , but that he line ever permitted his administration tc become tainted as Mr. Bryan sug ests , will require moro proof than Ir. Bryan's unfounded accusation tt onvince the American people. President Taft has picked men ol Ighcst Ideals and highest lntegrit > or the supreme court. Ho has picket ho highest type of man , with tin incHt judicial training , that tills ountry knows. And the America ! leoplo have faith In the Integrity o hat court. When this republic does lose faltl n Its supreme court , or when the su ; iromo court does become corrupt hen pity the American flag. And un II there Is moro basis than partlsai jllndness for attacking motives o he supreme court , let our statcsmei each respect for the courts rathe linn cast Insult and Insinuation upoi hem , THIRD DISTRICT REPUBLICAN. The Third congressional district o Nebraska is fully as much a ropubll can district as it is a democratic die rlct , on the face of the record , am eliminating the personality of the lat Ion. J. P. Lattn , who drew very grea support from republican ranks , tin district may well bo counted as posl ively republican. In the last six elections the ropubll cans have won three times and tin democrats three times. Robins ( dem. ivas elected in 1900 by a bare 17 najorlty. McCarthy ( rop. ) won li 1902 by GGO and In 1904 by 2,191 Boyd ( rep. ) was elected In 190C am n the next two campaigns Mr. Latta' ; ) ersonallty , with his great hold upoi many staunch republicans , togethe with the lavish expenditure of mono ; hat was in ado In the campaign mat aged for him by Dan V. Stephens ; ave democratic majorities. But even In spite of Latta's tw winning campaigns , the district ha been republican half the tlmo sine 1900 and In ono campaign (1904 ( when Dan V. Stephens was campalg nanager for P. E. McKlllip , the n publicans won against a $38,000 slus fund expended In McKllllp's behalf. And so , eliminating the Latta pei sonality and check book , the Thir Nebraska district may still bo counte safely a republican district and ther is not the slightest reason in th world why a united republican part in this district this year should no succeed In electing Jim Elliott to sui ceed Mr. Latta. THE MCKAY RULING. Several newspapers are attemptln to inako political capital from Judg Welch's ruling on the error in dat in the state's complaint charging Jo McKay , in Antelope county , with mu dor. The fact of the matter is thr the mistake was not mentioned t Judge Welch by the attorneys for di fonso In support of their demurrc to the information. They simply sal they did not care to argue it. Nc was it called to Judge Welch's attoi tlon for a ruling until after a Jur had been sworn to try the caso. No doubt this course was pursue by thorn so that McKay could plea former Jeopardy If the infornmtlo could bo amended during trial an the court should hold otherwise , nece sltating the discharge of that jut and commencing over on a correcte information. Some states ( amen them Kansas in one opinion by Judf ! Brewer , afterwards judge of the Unl ed States supreme court , had hel that such a mistake could bo correc ed during trial and the case procec with the jury then impaneled. Othi states have held that such inform tion was void. The Nebraska suprerc court had never passed on the poin In view of the uncertainty as I which line of authorities the Nebrasl supreme court would follow , Judf Welch certainly pursued the only sa course when ho followed Judge Brei er and held that the mistake cou bo corrected and the case procee with the jury then sworn , rather the run the risk of setting McKay fn on a plea of twice in Jeopardy I discharge of the jury , should the N braska supreme court follow Judf Brewer on the point. LAND LOTTERY HUMBUG. There's a good deal of hutubi about these land lotteries , and tl United States government , surprlsii as it may seem , is largely responsib for the graft. Louis Hill was pret near right when ho classified the lai drawing game , three years ago , as scheme that defrauds thousands o of hard earned dollars. In the rush that just closed , 53,01 people registered for homestead Many of them traveled considerab more than 1,000 miles to register , is fair to estimate that the averai expense to each applicant was $5 That would make $2,650,000 not f ; from three millions of dollars poun DSt era a slim gamble , for the mo part by people who could ill afford spare the money. At all events , tl people who ought to get governmei homesteads are people who need the and who have little surplus cash throw away. Out of 53.000 who registered , wo ai now Informed , after the lottery , tin not any of the first class lands ai available and that considerable lei than 500 claims of second rate agricul tural land arc to be had by those who drew. In other words , thu chances against a man's drawing even a second end rate farm , wore 10(3 ( to 1. That's a good deal bigger odds than a roiil- ti" wtwl offers against the player yet "gambling" was prohibited at the registration points. if the government wanted to put these claims where they wore needed , the sane method would bo to allow people to register by mail , thus giving every part of the nntlot mi equal chance. Each applicant could bo required ( quired to put up a stipulated sum us evidence of good faith , thus keeping down the number to persons really 'wanting homes. This would nit out , the big expense of making trips to registration points , and loss of time. This plan has frequently been put up to the government but politicians i have always been able to counteract the suggestion and win out with the "rush" scheme. Thousands of people are led Into the belief that If they win , they'll get ( something for nothing , and that their chances for winning are good. As n matter of fact , the require ments nro such as to compel the homesteader to pay well for his claim. | and his chances of drawing are mighty slim. slim.Tho The United States government ought to rise above this sort of a game. It would cut down railroad j revenues and take some money from registration points , but the Interests of all the people would be bettor served. STEPHENS' "DEMOCRATIC" RECORD. Dan V. Stephens , democratic nomi nee for congress , Is posing as the simon-pure champion of democracy , as the friend of the "masses , " as the champion of purity In politics and of "reform" all along the lino. Yet as a politician who seeks votes by the extravagant use of enormous sums of money , Stephens' record is enough to cause the "masses" of "common people" to sit up and question Mr , Stephens' right to any claims about the fundamental principles of demo cracy. Dan Stephens was chairman aiv * campaign manager for P. E. McKlllip when McKlllip ran for congress against J. J. McCarthy in 1904. Mc Klllip is now a bankrupt and his fi nancial affairs are being aired in bankruptcy court. Some astounding facts are brought to light In this con nection. An investigation , for instance , shows that in his 1904 campaign Mc Klllip gave checks for campaign pur poses amounting to $26,057.29 and spent in addition to the amount rep resented by checks the sum of $12,000 , making a total expenditure in that campaign of $38,057.29. This onornv ous use of funds undoubtedly con > tributed to Mr. McKlllip's financinl downfall. And Dan Stephens was MC' ' Killip's political manager. In that campaign of 1904 William Jennings Bryan , then the "peerlesa leader" as now , swept over the Third ' | district , as he is sweeping over It this year , and told the "pee-pul" how they ought to vote. He threw his arm affectionately around McKillip's this year and told the people how long ho had known McKilllp and whal a model ho was. He failed to refei to the fact that McKilllp was spend ing $38,000 In his democratic effort to get votes. This year Bryan is again with us He Is again in affectionate mood to ward the candidate. He is telllnj his audiences what a genuine "com mon people's" democratic democral Dan Stephens is. And he is not re ferring to the fact that Stephens was political manager for McKlllip in the campaign that cost McKilllp $38,000. As an Interesting little sidelight li may bo noted , too , that in the lasi campaign of the Hon. James P. Latt * whose position Stephens now seeki Mr. Latta Is said to have spent some where in the neighborhood of $68,000 Dan Stephens was Latta's politico manager In that campaign , as he hat been In McKllllp's. Is It any wonder that Edgar How ard , that fearless Columbus demo cratlc editor , turned loose his rapii fire guns a year ago in protest agalns Stephens' extravagant and Indefensl ble use of the check book to sucl astounding extent ? Is It any wonder there Is a growln ; protest among people all over th < Third district , democrats and republl cans alike , against sending to congress gross as a representative of this dia trlct , a man who has conducted cam palgns on such an extravagant checl book basis ? Notice to the city administration Tuesday night was Hallowe'en. Isn't it a Joy to live under a clt ; administration that has such faith li humanity that It sees no reason fo providing property owners with thi slightest degree of police pro'ectioi on Hallowe'en , deaplto the fact tha genuine damage Is being done In al 1 parts of the city ? Take it from us t that's the kind of n city governmen wo ought to bo proud of. 3 t LOST. Ono battery key , withou which ono young Buick refuses ti run. Reward for return , and no ques tions asked. FRANKLY , wo don't think it win ' j genteel of 'em to take that key am keep It , but wo confess stupidity ii 5 leaving the thing on the street when It could be got at and particularly In view of our rcmarkablo police pro tection. PERSONALLY , when wo wore young , wo NEVER took a battery key from anybody's car on Hallowe'en. ( In those days they didn't have 'em , which perhaps explains the reason why. ) Don't shiver. This Is only a tasto. Speaking of Hallowe'en luck , wouldn't It make you swear to pyo two pages of the noon edition at the last mlnuto before going to press ? Now you noon edltlonors know why you got four pages yesterday. Wo would think- some of these golf sharks under 30 would fool ashamed of themselves to lot a man who has lived about half n century , go out nud clean up everybody In town for the championship. Now wo'ie glad we didn't register. Cranking a car In cold weather wears almost as many blisters on a fellow's hand as the furnace game. Dan Stephens Is quoted as saying J.iat bo's elected anyway , but is mere ly traveling over the district to let ills constituents get a glimpse at him. A man named Dan once had an awful fall when he got too chesty Dan Me- 'Jlnty , wasn't It ? We see by the paper that two big moving picture magnates were vic tims of a Jap running amuck In Los Angeles. Wo trust their picture in- atlnct prompted them to have the pic ture machine ready for the emer gency. Now that the world's series has lieon played off for another year , what is there for a man to do the next twelve months ? That reminds us , Christmas is only eight weeks away , and you'd better Iniy 'em early. Do we understand Mr. Bryan to mean that he will vote for La Fol- lotto If Bob Is nominated ? Of course you've noticed how bloom ing jealous every doctor in a Httlo country town is of every other doctor in the town. This situation recently resulted in the near-death of one woman in a north Nebraska village. The woman was a preacher's wife. There were three doctors In the church and when the preacher's wife got sick she didn't know , for the life of her , which ono to employ. So she just lay there on her bed and came near pass ing away before she finally got up nerve enough to call one of the phy sicians , at the risk of offending the other two. There is only one other kind of jealousy that ever grows as bitter as the jealousy between small town doctors , and that's the bitterness that arises between members of the church choir. There is this distinction , though : The church choir affair Is found in every city as well as in every ham let. One Omaha church almost dis rupted because two families in the church won't stand for a certain choir leader , and everybody else is dead set on having him. Here's a suggestion for moving pic ture film : Company comes to visit. Hostess tells how her children al ways sleep all night long , without a whimper. Lights out. Then all the children wake up and cry at regular fifteen-minute intervals all night. Explanations - planations at breakfast about how It never happened before. Hello , hero's Hallowe'en again ! But modern sidewalks have made it not what it used to be. Wo see by the paper that a young man was shot on a Ewlng street. Thai ought to be a vital spot to be shot in Another sure sign that winter Is or the way ; They're getting the storm windows on. Another Hallowe'en is gone anil you can heave a sigh of relief. Notice to Golfers : When a golfei Is called to the telephone before he has finished changing from golf tc street clothes , ho ought to shut the clubhouse door. Hello , here's November. Something happening all the time. I ! * "ED. " HOWE'S PHILOSOPHY. ( Copyright 1911Geo.Matthew ; Adams. ) Somehow , a barefooted woman al ways shocks a man. A man knows woman has feet , but he hates to see them. What do people talk most about ? 1 have concluded that they talk most ol Outrages. Some men are like phonographs ; every day they reel off exactly the same records. Some people think that If they dc not eat with a knife , or drink oul of a saucer , that Is enough to know about etiquette. It makes very Httlo difference will some men whether they make a state inont on oath at the courthouse , 01 on the street. A great trick of pretty women h not to be very fond of anyone. The popularity of dogs Is duo to t story told years ago , and never au thentlcateil , that there was once r dog that would go after the cows. In buying things , you are compelled to run almost as much risk in trading horses : nearly every butcher will sol ; you ram for lamb , and little Is thought of It. It always makes a man mad to ask him to bo Identified. Experlenco indicates that If n girl wants a husband , she must got out and hustle for one. thu same as a man hustles for a job. 1 try not to lu > prejudiced , but do not nmko much headway against It. It Is iMisy to I'Diivlni'o a man that ho Is bulng wronged. About the only thing that happens In a country town In the iippcariineo In the spring and fall of a strange milliner to trim hats for six weeks. It is easy to carry smite things so far that everybody will lese money , and a few get killed. A modest man is usually admired ; if people ever hoar of him. When a man wants to "talk It over , " ho thinks he can soon bring the op position around to his way of thinking ing- There are two things people are quick to notice : when a man wears a wig , and when a woman paints her checks. There may bo pleasure In tolll.ig to day of the big thing you intend to ac complish tomorrow ; but the humilia tion you suffer tomorrow , when you find you can't inako your big talk good , probably offsets It. A wrong Is sometimes nothing more serious than a man clamoring for something he is not entitled to. How IK it that a widow , bowed In grief at the funeral , and seeing no onu , can tell alter it Is over who was there ? Man never gets over it. I know a widower who is 70 , If he Is a day , and as ugly a man UK there IR In the world. The oilier day someone spoke to him about "paying attention" to an old widow. And the old man didn't do a thing but grin in an Idiotic way , indicating that ho was guilty ! When I pass CO , if a man speaks to me of love , I'll knock him down. In nine cases out of ten , an excuse doesn't excuse. Some people remind one of dogs ; whatever they want to do , they do , without much regard for the proprie ties. I wish I could take advice as easily as I give It. Don't let a man tell you what people ple say about you without telling him what people say about him. If you are enthusiastic , you have probably had this experience : A sub ject comes up in which you are inter ested and you meet a man. You talk enthusiastically , and find him as dead , as cold , as lacking In enthusiasm , as a mackerel barreled five years ago. When John D Rockefeller was a boy , his mother was always scaring him with stories that ho was liable to go to the poorhouse. Ho became so frightened that he now owns nearly all the money in the world. If a woman's daughters hang on too long , she snys a girl who marries be fore she is 30 , is robbed of her girl hood. Women who are invited to a party are not satisfied ; they want to be asked to help receive. I never knew a man who could keep a horse looking decent in winter time. In politics , a lot of things happen , and a lot of fellows claim the credit , I am becoming tired of the saying : "All quiet on the Potomac" as I am of the story that Byron awoke one morning , and found himself famous. Some men are so mean that when they attend a ball game , they want tc see the home team beaten. After a country-town man has beer to New York , there Is a difference ; he is loftier , and not so well satisfied with his own town as formerly. When a woman abuses you , stand it ; you can't fight a woman. But there is a way of getting even ; abuse her preserves behind her back. Another person's secret is like an other person's money ; you are not as careful with it , as you are of youi own. I don't want to solve the problems of life ; I want to get rid of hearing them talked about. More money is put Into mining anil politics than is taken out. When a man amounts to BO little that he Is not asked to sign petitions or write letters of recommendation , that settles It ; he is pretty low. When two members of the same family meet on the street , they always Beem to have something disagreeable to talk about If a woman didn't occasionally go wrong , the good ones would bo so proud that there would be no living with them.

SATURDA REV.SAMUElW.teVlSD.D. . . , . . THE GOD OK TIIK LUCKY Text. "The Lord \vi n with Joseph , nivl heM S n lui-lty fellow" iTymlalti'H trans latlon ) . Genesis xxxlx. 2. Ills name was Joseph. Ho rose from the slave pen to the throne. The Bible says ho was "a lucky fellow. " As the other slaves saw him rlso they said. "What a lucky fellow ! " Of course lie tolled whllo other slaves slept. I In looked after Potlphar's affairs , whlln the other slaves looked after them selves. Ho busied himself bettering the prison , while others busied them Helves trying to break out There am plus and minus people. Joseph was plus. Still God and man said Joseph was "a lucky fellow. " Ono ought to dellno "luck. " "That which chances to a person for good or ill. " But when you say "chance" you I'onfoMs Ignorance. The very flip of the coin Is governed by nerve , muscle , thumb and brain that Hip It. If jon could calculate the mental and phyd leal forces between the coin's leap and return you could buy the world. But you can't. And It's Just that bit of Ignorance wo call "chance. " If a boy hated to saw woodland of the load of pine , hickory and beech most of the pine fell to his brother's side , and the hard , knotty wood fell to him. ho would say he had bad luck. Neverthe less there would bo a cause for the wood so falling. If , however , the boy's father had so stacked the wood that the pine fell to ono and the hickory to another , because one was better fitted for his lot than the other , the word "ehanee" would have no place there. 1 f ono sawed wood while the other taught his dog to balance n chip of wood on his nose there might be still another reason. The Luck of Having a Job. Joseph's good luck was In having an opportunity of demonstrating his Ill ness for doing largo things by faith fulness to small things. He had the luck of being a servant. That was his chance. Every fellow who has a Job has a chance. Don't think for a moment that things went smooth and without opposition. There were court Intrigues and high officials , who en vied him and tried to knlfo him on the sly. Let's admit for the mo ment that there's "luck. " Well , to Joseph It "broke wrong. " Ho was sold n slave. Blessed Is the man whom misfortune doesn't sour. If our 111 luck makes us sour we're "goners. " If we arc brave and smile things start to "come our way. " Some men are cradled on feathers , some on rocks. Bunyan In Bedford Jail was better off than the king of England. John the Baptist In dungeon at Maehaenis castle - tlo was In better "luck" than Herod on the throne , though the former was beheaded. Franklin munching his penny roll on the streels of Philadel phia looking for a Job , George W. Chllds wheeling his barrow when the other boys had gone home , the New York judge who rammed paving stones on the street to get money to make a start are instances of hard "luck. " When some official pushed a stumbling block In Joseph's way ho stepped up on it. A postal clerk in Wushlnglon got "bounced , " had saved 1100 , worked his way to Japan , start ed there n postal system and got $11.- 000 a year. A Bible Cinderella ? No ; no magic or miracle about It. "Ho had a 'pullV " Yes. in a sense. He took his 111 luck 1. e. , his brother's envy , father's foolishness , boyish van ity , love of money , a woman's lust , ly ing lips , an ungrateful butler's forget- fulncss , a despot's caprice , troubled dreams and Ignorant magicians , strung them together into a rope to "pull" himself to the throne next to Pharaoh. "He was faithful , " the book says. In this shoddy age. shoddy clothes , shod dy Ideas , shoddy morals , "faithful" needs emphasizing. Ho had a clear record. Remember John B. Couch's last words "Young man. keep your record clear. " No skeleton In his soul's closet ; no Banquo's ghost ; no Belshaz- zar's fear of shadows ; no Macbeth cryIng - Ing "Out , damned spot. " And In pros perity ? Adversity develops character ; prosperity demands it. Weight of pris on may be lighter than weight of pow er. Flowers that bloom under snow wither under sun. From slave pen to throne was but a night ; prison rags 1 to palace robe , fetter of Iron to clialu \ of gold , bed of straw to couch of down i all In n day ? No ; It took a Hfetlmu.
