also singing, debating, and competi

Messrs. Ransdell &feed are doing
a large business in bntter and eggs,
their transactions for June amount
ing to $15,860.30. The amount of
these articles produced must be enor
mouB, seeing that other dealers, too,
have a share of the business. Mr.
Ransdell tells ui that the ratio of
oleomargarine to butter is increasing,
and that the counterfeit will continue
so to do until the butter is monthly
made in creameries. These gentle
men have unbounded faith in Ne
braska's grasses and cows.
S Gradually, the hesitation that
t people feel in exploring un
known fields of enterprise or adven
ture or taking risks that may not
prove advantageous and which will,
in the course of events, be regretted,
is wearing away with regard to Dr.
Wheeler, and the universal opinion of
persons who havs had experience in
the matter, and of any and all who
have cared to make themselves ac
quainted with facts, not accepting as
such second-handed opinions of per
sons influenced by selfish or merce
nary motives to speak disparagingly
of the doctor' is that as a healer he
stands in the front rank. His patients
are increasing every day, untiUhis la:
bors in their behalf are enormous, and
the only wonder is that auy man
could do as much and retain his own
health and vitality. The reason for
this almost universal favorable opin
ion is obvious. He does not depend
upon auy false or spurious statements
to secure patients, but treats all who
may consult him candidly and fairly,
guaranteeing a cure if he thinks the
case possible of cure, or plainly tell
ing them so if he does not, relying
upon his knowledge and skill, based
on years of practice ahd experience,
to speak for him in the good ho does
his patients. And the univeral testi
raonials of these patients are in his
favor. The truth of this statement
cau be ascertained by calling at the
doctor's office and interviewing thobe
who have placed themselves under
his treatment. The writer of this has
talked with many old patients from
adjoiuing counties in the state where
the doctor has beeu, who, from inva
lids for years' have been made sound
aud well. The following are the
names and residences of persons who
may be referred to as having expe
rience in treatment with Dr. Wheeler.
Jos. Rivet aud members of his family ;
Jno. Huber; Mrs. Johnson of Schdy
ler, Colfax County; Mrs. Jeuqie
Stevenson, of Monroe, Platte County ;
Henry Lupker, in Columbus; Chris.

The doctor's plan of treatment is no
cure no pay, consultation free.

Moral Oblleatloa aot (Joatia
GTeat apoa Coaseat.
Mr. Editor : That the ballot rep
resents Government is not denied by
Mr. Gerrafd. He wonld make it rep
resent also our moral obligation to
submit to the government. To bring
this about he calls the government a
compact. This savors of the heresy
of nullification and ge mu6t speak
with caution.
For the sake of argument, suppose
the government were a compact
merely, and the ballot represented
our consent to that compact. It
would not follow that the ballot rep
resented our moral obligation to obey
the lawB. For in that case the obli
gation wouid end with the withdraw
al of consent. In other words
a refusal to vote would nul
lify our obligation to obey the
laws. The thief wonld only have to
refuse to vote, and he could steal
with impunity. This is absurd.
The truth is that moral obligation
is not in any degree contingent upon
consent. It cannot be denied that we
are born under inalienable obligation
to God, to man, and to the govern
ment, and that the extent of this obli
gation can neither be increased or di
minished by any act of the will. It is
the same whether we consent or not ;
whether the government be demo
cratic, monarchical, patriarchal or
tribal. It rests upon the practical ne
cessity of government in some form
and upon the Divine authority which
inheres in government "The powers
that be are ordained of God." There
fore the ballot cannot represent our
moral obligation to submit to them.
In so far as a man is governed by
moral obligation, he is not governed by
human laws. These are for the gov
ernment of meu who do not recog
nise moral claims.
Mr. Gerrard admits that my logic is
invincible, but denies the truth of one
of my premises. If the ballot repre
sents anything besides physical pow
er, surely he can tell as what it is. I
submit he has failed to prove my
original third proposition untrue.
He calls man under our free gov
ernment s king and so he is. He calls
upon his fellow citizens to crown wo
man queen and pot the scepter in ber
hand. I look in my Webster and find
that the word queen has two mean
ings. 1st. "a consort of the king."
To be queen in this sense she does not
need a scepter. She is the power be
hind the throne" without it. 2nd. "a
female monarch." To be queen in
this sense she must rule over man aud
rule alone. What shall we say of
the idea of two scepters on one
throne. The absurdity of it is only
equalled by the absurdity of the claim
which is now being pressed by a few
of the female 6ex against the totality
of the better instincts of womankind,
and which fittingly characterizes the
movement as the Reform against na
Fraxklix Pierce.
