A week or two ago a lady of this city
wrote a note to the Tribune recom
mending the use of horseradish as a
means of alleviating the miseries of the
grip, if not effecting a thorough cure.
Several instances in which this sugges
tion was acted upon with strikingly fa
vorable results have come to the knowl
edgerof the Tribune. Ordinary grated
horseradish eaten at frequent intervals
during the day and in connection with
food at the table, if food is eaten at all,
has been found remarkably efficacious in
banishing the distressing cough that
frequently lingers after all the other
symptoms of the grip have gone. It can
do no harm to try it, at all events. The
humble but pungent horseradish must
have been made for some good use.
If reciprocity is a good thing with
Brazil, why not with Canada? But the
White House pigmy is opposed to the
proposed Canadian reciprocity suggest
ed by Bold Ben Butterworth. Steu
The reason is obvious to every Ameri
can citizen who is not too prejudiced to
reason. Brazil raises coffee, sugar and
hides that we do not produce in suffi
cient quantities to supply our wants.
Canada raises wheat, corn, potatoes,
pork, beef and eggs, that we produce all
we need of. Under reciprocity Canada
would become a competitor in our grain
and produce markets with American
farmers, while reciprocity with Brazil
we get an enlarged market for our farm
products in exchange for what we must
buy abroad. One is "higher" protection
and the other is free trade. That is the
reason why democrats want Canadian
reciprocity. Bellaire Tribune.

More than two weeks have been al

case, and it may last two weeks longer.
Dr. Beachly declared that the symptoms
attributed to Mr. Sheedy by Dr. Hart,
in connection with things made mani
fest at the autopsy showed that Sheedy
had died from the effects of morphine
Harry Shafer, grand keeper of the
records and seal of the Knights of
Pythias in Nebraska, testified that on
the day following the assault of John
Sheedy he called to see the wounded
man, who was a brother knight. While
there Mrs. Sheedy remarked:
I believe that Mr. Sheedy is dying,
not from the effects of the blow, but I
think they have given him something to
The witness further testified that Mrs.
Sheedy manifested no symptoms what
ever of grief.
Grossly undue familiarity has been
clearly shown between Mrs. Sheedy and

having been sold to Mrs. Sheedy; also
socks exactly similar to those sold her,
and neckties sold to her were found in

Alfalfa is being more generally sown
and cultivated by our farmers this
spring than ever before, especially in the
western part of the state where its good
'qualities seem to be better known than
in the eastern part. It stands dry
weather better than any other kind of
tame grass, and from two to four crops
' can be taken from it on a favorable sea
son. Many acres of it are grown in Col
orado, and last season Bosh A Morse of
the Windsor Farm cut three crops from
nearly one hundred acres and their large
herd of Hoktein-Friesiian cattle did not
get much else but alfalfa to eat They
would commence mowing hay on one
. aide of the field and by the time the
field was cut over, they would begin
again oa the aide they first cut. Last
year a gentleman in Furnas county pas
tured eighty head of hogs and three
cows ob s six-acre patch of alfalfa. J.
C McPreetoH, near Orleans, Harlan
comity, reports that on a fifteen-acre
patch of alfalfa, he pastured thirty-five
headof cattle oa it from the first of May
and ia June he turned fifty head bkjts
ob it aad it furnished feed until fall,
daring an Baaally dry season for
eighty-five headof cattle. Where alfalfa
had mot beea paetmred close, it was six
iacaee high last week in this state, west
of the one hundredth meridian. Let

Ik an editorial in the last Argus under
the caption of "Let as reason together,"
there is quite enough suggested to jus
tify the last paragraph, viz: "These few
suggestions are not intended to knock
the oSce seeking bee out of any man's
bonnet, and the illustration which we
make of the sheriff's office will apply
with equal force to all the others." The
truth is that the alliance are getting to
that point in their history where the
danger to party success begins. While
out of power, but advocating principles,
the sailing is comparatively easy; it is
one of the easiest things in the world to
find fault with the party in power;
critics are always abundant; there are
even those who have somewhat to say
against the manner in which the Al
mighty transacts the great affairs of the
universe; it is easy to find fault, but the
trouble begins when the fault-finders
are placed in power. If they are mere
fault-finders and nothing better, they
will make no better headway than those
whom they displace. But even with the
most patriotic impulses, the actual work
that political parties sre instituted to
accomplish is a difficult task, and nom
inations to office or appointments to
office the distribution of public pat
ronageis such a peculiarly difficult
matter to manage satisfactorily that the
possession of the offices is often a source
of weakness rather than of strength.
For instance, where there are twenty
applicants for an office at the disposal
of a congressman, and but one out of
the twenty is recognized by that or
some other, the unsuccessful nineteen
are apt not to be very great enthusiasts
for the re-election of the congressman.
A radical out of office often becomes
very conservative immediately after the
responsibility of action is placed upon
him. There is all the difference between
saying and doing, between preaching
nnd practice, or at least between the
ideal and the actual. The history of
politics is full of instances of what we
are saying, and every new political par
ty is, upon its accession to any responsi
bility, confronted with the same old
problems of choosing men and dispens
ing favors. Eternal vigilance is the
price of liberty and a great many other
things as well, and if the adherents of
the various political parties had always
attended the primaries and made their
sentiments strongly known, there
wouldn't have lieen in Nebraska two
factions of the two political parties,
known as monopoly and anti-monopoly.
Indifference to party management has
been the prolific source of all our
trouble, and unless a remedy can be
found for that, there is little use in
Maryland, my Maryland, how nice it
will be, if now the knights of reciprocity
shall be able to elect U. S. senators.
Protection to our home products, devel
opment of our own natural resources
and as much of paying commerce with
the outside world as we can contrive,
those are the things this country wants.
A few years of the present olicy and
the American merchantmen will lie found
everywhere in abundance. Let us, by
all manner of good laws and customs,
make it an easy matter for the indus
trious, well-meaning man to earn a good
living for his wife and children; make it
impossible for our servants (the office
occupants, the temporary holders of the
lines), to run the wagon off into the
ditch; let us require of them fidelity to
our interests, a decent regard, at the
very least, for our expressed wishes, and
capacity to transact well the business
we employ them to do. The American
people are always about to elect a presi
dent, senators, state, county, city, town
ship or district officers, and hence it is
always appropriate for them to be think
ing of the manner of men they wish to
put into places of honor and trust As
for political parties, they must hold their
representative men to a strict account
for their stewardship, or the common
voter will condemn both parties and
men. The American people are learning
that they must look after public matters
more closely; learning that it is not so
much a matter of "name of party" as
"kind of men." Gen. Jackson nnd Jim
my Buchanan were both democrats, but
what difference between the men when
it came to the treatment of rebels! The
corruptionists hunt together, and sink
party names for success to their plun
dering schemes, and in this regard they
are giving pointers to the sons of light,
"to ngnt tne devil witn fire."
Ex - Representative Barksdale of
Mississippi is a somewhat historic fig
ure. In bis effort for a senatorial seat
he uses the following dramatic language:
"If I fail, avenge me; if I retreat slay
me; if I advance, follow me." An ex
change remarks: "When the office-seeking
itch gets hold of a man he seems to
lose whatever common sense he may
have previously possessed." It works
differently on different men holding
office does. Some look upon it as an in
cident in their general training, are
never anxious to run, try to do the best
they know, in the public interest, in the
discharge of their duties while in office,
and let it go at that Others hold an
office or two, or three or four, may be a
dozen or more, and after a while they
come to think that that is their normal
condition and appropriate place; we
have known a number of such, and sev
eral of them who made model officials in
e-ery respect; many of them, however,
undertake to be masters rather than
servants of the people; undertake to use
their public position for their own pri
vate gain; fleece the public, to line the
nests of their party or personal friends;
stand in with the cormorants in office
and out of it who believe that the public
is a great big goose to be plucked. The
practical problems of life seem to be
wrapped up in the two terms work,
.wages and while all of us are doing our
work here on earth for the living we get,
and the opportunities we have of learn
ing to appreciate the realities of things,
the great body of mankind are not ag
gressive enough against the thieves of
all sorts that "are stealing us blind, and
against those who mistake a desire to
hold office for their own gain, as a spark
of patriotic fire.

Editor Journal: It is Sunday and I
am kind of mopish; while I am satisfied
with the change I have made and feel at
present, reasonably contented, yet ev
erything seems so different from our old
home in Nebraska; new faces, new ac
quaintances, new everything, habits,
customs, manner of doing business, eat
ing, drinking, climate and soil.
It is true, there are a number of per
sons from Boone county living at and
near Madera, yet I seldom see any I
know. When I am not at work and get
to meditating and go out on a mind
journey, among old scenes, I long to see
the dear old familiar faces, and grasp
the old-time friendly hands.
Sunday, on the old farm at Woodville,
always brought us together, either as
neighbors visiting, or being visited, and
in the interchange of views, on the pro
gress of our crops, or our experience
with our Btock, was always profitable,
and full of pleasure, giving us a better
understanding of one another and in its
indulgence, became a recreation and an
incentive to brush up, in its anticipa
tion. It is to these gatherings I attribute
the warm-hearted, generous and genuine
help we received at our neighbors' hands,
when we were preparing to leave for our
Mr. John Brown, the founder of this
colony, is a religious, good man and
takes a large interest in the welfare of
the colonists, socially, morally and finan
cially. When he laid out Madera he
yielded to the suggestions of others and
did not interdict the opening of saloons,
and as a result there are a great many
saloons in Madera. In laying out this
place, La Vinta, no saloon can lie built
on any of the lots. Mr. Brown says the
saloons at Madera not only waste the
earnings of the colonists, but they be
come idlers, and shiftless, neglecting
their work, bringing poverty to their
homes, completely subverting the pur
pose he had in view, by giving an oppor
tunity for honest industry to reap the
fruits of its own labors. I never saw so
many drunken men as could be seen at
any time in Madera. Mr. Brown is de
termined it shall not be laid to his
charge that he did not throw around the
colonists the best safeguards he could
for the social, moral and financial wel
fare of the citizens of La Vinta. The
boys around Woodville and St Edward
used to play base ball without let or
hindrance on Sunday, often to the an
noyance of church worshipers, but here
the bridle is put on and the bit in their
mouths; no ball playing is allowed on
Sunday within the corporate limits. The
boys are champing their bits like yonng

My boys, Ralph and Orville, say all

to pay 75 cents per dozen for them at

From oar regular correspondent.
The president will return to Washing
ton the 'last of this week, and he will find
important matters requiring his atten
tion in nearly every one of the depart
ments of the government, so that he will
have to put in several weeks of hard
work in order to catch up with current
affairs. The state department has the
Spanish agreement for reciprocity be
tween the United States and Cuba and
Porto Rico; the Veneznlau reciprocity
agreement and a number of minor affairs
including the question of our right to
seize on the open seas the Itata, the
Chilian insurgent vessel which after be
ing seized at San Diego, California, by a
deputy U. S. marshal, on order from the
attorney-general, sailed away with the
marshal a prisoner, but afterwards put
him ashore. The treasury department
has the propositions of Secretary Foster
as to returning to the old form of making
up the monthly statement of the nation's
liabilities and assets, continuing the i
per cent bonds that will mature in Sep
tember at 2 per cent and other import
ant matters pertaining to our financial
affairs. The interior department has
some questions tq submit as to the pay
ment of "certain moneys appropriated for
the purchase of Indian lands.
There are also some details about the
Behring sea matters that the president's
advice is wanted upon. Secretary Fos
ter has mailed the instructions for the
present sealing season to the command
ers of the Revenue cutters, and has noti
fied them that supplemental instructions
will be telegraphed to them at Portland,
Oregon, or Seattle, Washington, if they
shall be deemed necessary after the
president's return. Secretary Foater
positively declines to make public the
nature of the instructions sent, so that
it is uot known whether the cutters will
seize vessels illegally sealing or not.
There is a general 'relief here that some
understanding has lieeu reached with
England that will stop all sealing for
this season, ulthough it is not based on
By the way, speaking of Behring sea
matters, it is interesting to note the
opinion of Senator Morgan, the leading
democratic, member of the senate com
mittee on foreign affairs, of Mr. Blaiue's
manner of conducting the negotiations.
Senator Morgan said of Mr. Blaine's last
letter to Lord Salisbury made public
several days ago: "Mr. Blaine is very
adroit, and he has now got his questions
just right I like the letter. It is di
rect, clear, dignified and has sufficient
pugnacity about it He keeps Lord
Salisbury right down to the point so
that he cannot get away. The solemn
truth is that ever since the war of the
revolution, when we escaped from under
the claws of Great Britain, tTie senti
ment of the British government has lieen
hostile to us. We cannot make as satis
factory treaties nor reach as lileral
agreements with her as we can with
other nations. There is that ever pres
ent disposition 1o interfere with and
hinder us 111 some way. The time may
not lie far distant, if this continues, when
she will go u tether's length too far. We
are surrounded as it were, by a cloud or
British influences. We feel them on the
Behring sea and in the fisheries on the
east, in the Nicaraguan canal matter
everywhere about us she is reaching out
to injure us."
I have it on good authority that the
national democratic managers are work
ing like beavers and spending money
lavishly to get the farmers' alliance to
put a gubernatorial ticket in the field in
Ohio, believing that it will draw enough
republican votes to elect the democratic
candidate for governor. I asked a prom
inent Ohio republican connected with
the administration, what he thought of
the prospect. He laughed, and said:
"The Ohio republicans who have joined
the alliance are far too smart to vote 'in
the air' to help their old time opponents,
the democrats. The republicans of Ohio
are determined to nominate and elect
McKinley governor of that state, and
they will not be stopped by any demo
Secretary Noble has gone to St. Louis
on private business, and is not expected
back for two weeks.
The treasury department has issued
to customs officials a circular of instruc
tions on the new copyright law, which
goes into effect July 1.
Very dry; the rain Friday was "eo
near, and yet so far."
In takiug a drive in the north part of

fering very much for rain; and the oats
in many places so yellow, and some is
being plowed up. They have not had
rain for four weeks and that very light;
nearly all of the corn is being put in

larger yield to the acre and it stands the

to be planted yet.

may wish to know how colds are cured
in the froon regions of the north. If
so the following extract from a recent
letter of C K. Coon, a druggist in
Juneau, Alaska, will interest them. He
says: "Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is
spiling lietter than ever. It is harder to
get into the 1 nixes than to sell the Rem

sales were rather light for the first year
he handled this medicine, but have in
creased each year as the people there
liecome lietter acquainted with its valu
able proiierties, until it is now the most
popular medicine he handles for coughs
and colds, which shows that, real merit
is as much appreciated in the far north
as at home, and in time the best is sure
to become the most popular. For sale
