in such cases it is best sot to try

There was a gambling place
"pulled" last Saturday night. The
same place has been kept for the last
six months by other parties, and fre
quented by old gamblers and habitues,
without a "pull." Just why this
should have been, may be an interest
ing question to some of onr authori
ties. "We believe that the principals
should be taken in, if any. Let the
law take hold of the chiefs.
Holiday Presents are annually
sought for. But it is often difficult to
find appropriate and inexpensive arti
cles of real value, that will be kept,
used and appreciated by a friend.
Among these we wonld make favora

We have noticed that among the
farmers who are most successful and
prosperous in Nebraska are those who
make it a point to raise mixed crops,
put in at the right season, well culti
vated, and harvested at the proper
time. This class of farmers generally
mix in with other things a" few hogs
and cattle, and we are very certain
we are not mistaken in saying that
such farmers are generally happy and
J. P. Strong's articles in the
Schuyler Sun, under the caption
"Among the Schools," must have a
good effect on the teachers and schools
of Colfax county. They show Mr.
Strong to be a wide-awake, earnest,
thorough-going official, who means to
do his whole duty. Of course Mr.
Strong's articles are designed to at
tract the attention, not only of chil
dren and teachers, but of parents, also,
whose good-will and assistance are
very important in making a success of
our public-school system.
One of onr subscribers has asked
us to say something about requiring
an educational qualification for the
right of suffrage. The trouble with
all snch questions is to determine just
where to draw the line, and preju
dice, and education (that is, such edu
cation as comes through custom) must
be considered. We have not space,
this week, but if our friend will de
termine, "out of his inner conscious
ness," without reference to the present
laws, at what age a person ought to
vote, we will try to do the same as to
how much he ought to know, to eati-
V Luers Jfc

A petition is being circulated and
signed by the citizens of north Butler
county, and is to be placed in the
hands of Seaator Brows of this coun
ty, invoking his influence and peti
tioning the next legislature for the
passage of an act changing the county
line between Butler and Colfax to the
center of the Platte river, ia order
that the two counties may bear equally
thojexpense of maintaining the bridge.

J. C Lease, a veterinary surgeon
who came here from David City about
three months ago, was found frozen
to death near Duncan last Friday
morning. He had been on a "spree"
for about a week before his death, and
was, probably, under the influence of
liqnor for months-past. The agent
at Duncan refused to let him have a
ticket because of his condition, but he
climbed onto the platform of a car,
and, it iB supposed, rolled off. There
was nothing to show that he had been
even struck by the cars. He had no
relatives here ; he seemed to be a very
clever-hearted man, and certainly
might have been a useful citizen had
he not been addicted to drink.
Our Little Ones and the Nureery
for January, 1883, is the Holiday num
ber of this charming magazine, and is
the most attractive one yet issued. It
contains five full page, and about
twenty other, but not leas beautiful
illustrations, all drawn by eminent
artists expressly for this work, and
engraved in the highest style of art by
Mr. George T. Andrew. These pic
tures are instructive and elevating to'
the taste, as well as exceedingly pleas
ing to the little ones. The poems,
stories, and descriptive articles are all
by the best writers, and all are such
as will interest the pets of home, as
well as improve their minds and
hearts. The publishers announce
that no cheap edition of the bound
volume for the present year will be
put upon the market through the book
trade. All whojle8irethe Magazine
therefore, must subscribe or purchase
the numbers. $1.50 a year; $1 for
eight months. A specimen free. Rus

At tbe recent mass meeting held
in pursuance of tbe call of senator
elect Brown, and representatives Mc
Allister, North and Schroeder, John
S. Freeman presided, -and B. Millett
acted as secretary. The object of the
meeting was stated and speakers lim
ited to ten minutes. Remarks were
made by Messrs. Spoerry, Bruin,
Millett, Hailing, Ernst and Wheeler.
The following resolutions, on motion
ot Mr. Bruen, were adopted :
Whereas, Onr state senator and
representatives elect have asked us for
a public expression of our opinion as
to desirable legislation during the
coming session, therefore,
Resolved, That it be declared as the
sentiment of this meeting, that the
utmost effort be made to reduce rail
road freight tariff in Nebraska, to
prevent and punish discrimination
and extortion against individuals and
communities, and to reduce passenger
fare to a maximum of 3 cents a mile.
Resolved, That an appropriation for
capital building is not now needed.
Resolved, That all appropriations
for expenees of state government be
cut down to tbe lowest notch consist
ent with the public welfare.
Resolved, That township organiza
tion is desirable, and that our repre
sentatives should use their influence
to bring it about.
Resolved, That railroad companies
in this state should be assessed for the
value of their property and fran
chises, as the constitution directs.
The Great Theatrical Ereat or

tress Miss Loretto Wells. Two nights

ing, January 4th, Mrs. Lovell's great
work, adapted from the German,
" Ingomar the Barbarian.''
Parthenia Loretto Wells.
Iugomar Lew H. Phillips.
Change of bill Friday nvening. This
great drama is at the present day only
being played, by three differjt com
panies. It is beyond doubt tbe most
beautiful in-' language, sentiment and
picturesqueneBs of "any play now be
iug produced. We feel sure of seeing
a large attendance of onr German
citizens, as this iB in fact a German
drama. The company comes with
strong references. The Beatrice Ex
press says :
On Saturday evening the company
put upon the! boards for the first time
in Beatrice the popular play, " Ingo
mar tbe Barbarian." In this play
Loretto We'lls appeared as " Parthe
nia," tbe Greek maid, and scored tbe
greatest success in that line of acting
ever made in Beatrice, showing a fine
appreciation of the character and
winning applause in every act Lew
H. Phillips was no less a success in
the character of " Ingomar," tbe chief
of the outlaws. Having made a study
of this character for years, and wit
nessed the performances of all the
leading actors of the country in this
character, he haa culled the best ideas
from each and displays a dramatic
talent in hiB impersonation that stamps
him as a true artist. The support
throughout was quite good.
It is the general expression that tbe
nerformance Satnrdav niarht was bv
I far the beat ever givaa in Beatrice.

R. T. Andrews, representing A. T.
Andreas, has finished the work of
distributing the History of NebraskP,
for which they had a hundred sub
scribers in Platte county. Mr. An
drews has gone to Merrick county, to
continue his distribution of what may
well and fittingly be characterized as
the greatest work yet published con
cerning Nebraska. It is a book of
1500 pages, splendidly bound, finely
illustrated, containing an account of
its growth from an uninhabited ter
ritory to a wealthy and important
state; of its early settlements; its
rapid increase in population, and tbe
marvellous development of its great
natural resources. Also an extended
description of its counties, cities,
towns and villages ; views of residen
ces, business blocks, &c. It certainly
is the best work to consult if a man
wishes to become thoroughly posted
on Nebraska history and Nebraska
interests. Issued by the Western
