In all the creations of man's genius no
two are alike. For the purpose intend
ed there are all degrees of merit, from
the poorest to the best. The test of
merit is actual use, and, when you are to
be the purchaser, it is yourself that
should be satisfied, pleased, delighted
with your purchase. It happens that
these articles mentioned above are sold
mostly by canvassing agents. Some of
these canvassing agents are very fair and
attend strictly to the business of show
ing the good qualities of their own wares,
and, when necessary, the actual defects
of some others; all are by no means
bad; other canvassing agents are thor
oughly unscrupulous, and make such
misrepresentations as they think will
secure a sale of their goods. What we
wish to suffcest is this: we are 6ellinir
pianos, organs and sewing machines. If
you wish to buy either, please notify us
in person or by mail, and we will place it
in your house, free of any cost to you, or
any obligation whatever; we will fairly
set forth its merits, and, if you purchase,
we will guarantee satisfaction. All war
ranted first-class. Don't buy until you
see us or our traveling salesman, G. W.

Luther Brown of Merrick county
was apprised of the fact by men return
ing from church last Sunday evening a
week ago, near Central City, of a man in
the dark riding one of his farm horses,
and after hailing the rider found that
he did not reply, and immediately went
and waked Brown up, and he taking the
horse's mate went to follow the sup
posed thief. He had taken refuge in a
corn field, and when 200 yards apart the
horse's mate, influenced by good "hoes
sense," whinnied and the mate replied.
Thief and horse were secured and Jack
Lisco deputy sheriff took the offender to

domain in the west, who have made it
by their efforts "blossom as tho roso."
But I beg leave to present to your
readers another side to the question.
Suppose that these agencies havo done
all this, does it necessarily follow, that
they have the right to '-exploit" from tho
producers one-third the values thoy
create? Certainly not; any more than
in tho case of an individual, in a new
country, who shows tho settler a nice
piece of land, on which he is induced to
locate; then, after he shall havo culti-
lortation monopoly before he loads his
grain on the cars and puts up the tariff
five cents per bushel between the ship
ping and recoiving points. The result
is his three hundred dollars anticipated
profits are reduced one-half to one hun
dred and fifty dollars.
Again, supjioso a purchaser wanted to
buy this land. At one time Mr. Ernst
could truthfully havo informed him,
that it would yield ten per cent, ou
threo thousand dollars and was worth
that sum, but on the next day only five
vated the land, so that it yielded boun- per cent., or ten per cent, on fifteenhun
Tho "Paleontologist" of the Journal
begs leave to call the attention of the
present editor of the Democrat to the
long-age time when a predecessor of his
was under our tutelage, somewhere in
187i, for the use of lengthy words. To
be suro Mr. Hensloy was considerably
older than our young friend, and by
birth (Kentucky) of a rather warmer im
agination, and the way he could and did
"sling English" was a caution, until we
placed him under tutelage. The follow
ing will be remembered by students of
"paleontology" as one of Mr. Hensley's
most euphonious sentences, which we
herewith revive from "innocuous desue
tude:" "To mould into a unification of
nationality the heterogeneous masses of
this young state and bring about a hap
py reciprocity of interest among us."
Now we do not believe that D. Frank
will prove near so obstreperous and in
corrigible a student as W. N. was. He
is postmaster now, and what may our
D. Frank not aspire to be? He may be
come county superintendent of schools or
railroad commissioner, sometime.

For the Jouuxal.
The Itailronibt and the People.
It is truthfully asserted, that railroads
have done much to develop the country;
that they have opened up the awfu
solitudes of the deaert to civilization, t
and have brought settlers upon our vast ing the
tuully, woultl it be just for the partv,
who discovered tho land, to go to the
farmer's bins and cribs, year after year,
and appropriate one-third of his grain
and produce? Havo you considered that
the railroad kings can raise or lower tho
valuation of property millions or dol
lars? Read the testimonv of eminent
"In 1874, the Senate or the U. S. in
response to a general demand, appointed
a special committee on transportation
composed of William Windoin, of Min
nessota; John Sherman, of Ohio; Ros
coo Conkling, of New York; 11. G. Davis,
of West Virginia; T. M. Norwood, of
Georgia; J. W. Johnson, of Virginia;
joun it. Miicneii, or uregon, and S. is.
Conover, of Florida. The committee
occupied the entire summer of 1874 in
making an exhaustive examination of
the subject, and in their report wo find
tho following: In tho matter of taxa
tion, thero are today four men, repre
senting four great trunk lines between
Chicago and New York, who possess,
and who not nnfreqnently exercise
powers, which the Congress of the Uni
ted states would not venture to exert.
They may at any time, and for any
reason satisfactory to themselves, by a
single stroke of the pen, reduee "the
value of property in this country by
hundreds of millions of dollars. An ad
ditional charge of five cents per bushel,
on the transportation of cereals, would
havo been equivalent to a tax of forty
five millions of dollars on the crop of
1873. No congress would daro exercise
so vast a power except on a necessity of
tho most imperative nature, and yet
these gentlemen exercise it, whenever it
suits their supreme will and pleasure,
without explanation or apology.
AVith the rapid and inevitable pro
gress of combination and consolidation,
theso colossal organizations are dailv
bocoming stronger and more imperious.
The day is not distant, if it has not al
ready arrived, when it will bo tho duty
of the statesman to inquire whether
thero is less danger in leaving tho
property and industrial interests of tho
people thus wholly at tho mercy of a few
men, who recognize no responsibility
but to their stockholders, and no prin
ciple oi action uui personal and cor
porate aggrandizement, than in adding
somewhat to the power and patronage
of a government directly responsible to
the people, and entirely under their
Report of U. S. Senate Committee on
Transportation routes, page 158. Seo
Scribncr's Monthly for DecemW, 1880.
Just here a fow illustrations may not
be out of place. Take the case of two
mine owners in Arizona, who desire to
send their ore to San Francisco for tho
purpose of fluxing and smelting it. One
says to the railroad company: "I want
to 6end my ore up to 'Frisco. What will
you charge me a ton?"
R. R. Co. "How much does it assay."
"That is my business."
"No, it is not, we want to know, in
order to say how much we will charge
"Thirty dollars per ton."
"Well, we will charge you ten dollars
The other fellow puts the aaiue ques
tion to the company, and is told that
he, too, must tell how much his ore
assays. He replies three hundred dol
lars per ton. He answers, "We will
charge yon one hundred dollars per ton
to take your ore to San Francisco, that
will leave you two-thirds."
How is it with the farmer? We will
suppose, that Mr. Ernst, one of your
most well-to-do farmers, puts one hun
dred and Bixty acres of his best land
wholly into wheat; by the aid of a good
season and hard work, he is enabled to
raise three thousand bushels therefrom.
He contracts with a Chicago buyer to
uc," " "re iw eigriry- eeilts per
bushel. He figure that at that price,
he will clear three hundred dollars over
and above all expenses, freights 'remain
dred dollars, after tho raising of tho
tariff rates. Can you seo the ioint? Ib
it not plain to you now how railroads
can raise or lower tho valuation of
property by tho millions? Tho Journal
advises tho farmers to hold on to their
grain till next spring, that owing to the
scarcity of crops in tho northwest, it
will bring a letter prico then. Suppose
it does, and the railways put up the
tariff, the farmers will not be benefited.
but the "other fellers." It is a great
mistake to suppose that tho farmers are
the only sufferers in snch cases for
whatever part of their produce the rail
roads get, the resident business men re
ceive no benefit from it. It goes out of
the country to swell the purso of some
railroad king. Tho "railroad commis
sion" of Nebraska seems to be having a
little misunderstanding with some of
your IocjU roads. I am of tho opinion
that a commission with simply "advisory
powers" is a fraud. But the people
desire to be "humbugged" and such an
institution will accomplish that result
