cess, only being in bed a little over two
days, against ten days for the first at
tack. The second attack I am satisfied
would have been equally as bad as the
first but for the use of this remedy, as I
had to go to bed in about six hours after
being 'struck' with it, while in the first
case 1 was able to attend to business
about two dsys before setting 'down.' "

a car load of horses. The consignment
consisted of three trotting-bred stal

Those wWhave raw prairie ahoaM

Cash rent of good land in eastern Ne
braska is $3 an acre, and some pieces

we can secure the cropping of all or most

city in all lines.
The population of Columbus is
about 300, and we would say at least
one-half are troubled with some affec
tion of the throat and lungs, as those

more numerous than others. We would

opportunity to call on their druggist

There is no danger from whooping
cough when Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy is freely given. It liquefies the
tough, tenacious mucus and aids in its
expectoration. It also lessens the se
verity and frequency of the paroxysms
of coughing, and insures a speedy re
covery. There is not the least danger
in giving it to children or babies, as it
contains no injurious substance. 50 cent

OBSERVATIONS BY THE WAY.
Editor Ventures a Little Is tke Lite
A business call took us east a few
weeks, and some observatione by the
way will not be oat of order.
Iowa, whet with relatives and friends
I passed a few days, is evidently one of
the grand stater of the Union in several
respects, bat mainly in. soil; climate and
people. Thet is 'comparatively little
raw prairie left, in that portion (central)
through which;! passed. The farms are
mostly, small,, eighty acres, a hundred
and sixty, etc. This is as it should be,
to secure the 'beet results in roads,
schools, market towns, cities, eta, also
of local self-government, which is one of
the prerogatives of American citizen
ship that should not be lost sight of.
Inquiry, as well as observation, de
veloped the fact that prohibition does
do some goodTwhere public sentiment is
strong enousjf to enforce it There is a
growing senapent that, totMaffective,
prohibition list be natioav and en
forced by .oaffcrs not amenable to local
sympathies. -Iowa-seems determined to
test the forceof law against the liquor
traffic. "S::v .
A few minaiee in Chicago are suf
ficient to intensify the opinion of every
westerner as to the great future before
that wonderful city, which within the
next fifty- years, will probably be the
largest on the continent. There. is ab
solutely no use trying to keep up with
the knowledge of the improvements
being made, and few, outside of the re-,
porters, endeavor to do so. It might as
well bo remarked here that the tendency
of the times is toward the cities. Small
towns everywhere seem to be pretty
nearly at a standstill. The large cities
are growing, and seem to be sapping the
life of the smaller places. One man who
a dozen years ago was running a planing
mill in a small town has ceased to do so,
and his machinery-lies idlV because, he
says, he can purchase his stock all ready
for use, cheaper than he can get the raw
material and work it up; it is the same
with a multitude of industries, as
flouring mills, furniture, boots arid
shoes, etc., etc. Our planing mill
owner, when asked what he thought was
the outcome, said he didn't see, except
that the men of small means must go
out of business for themselves and work
for a salary or on a commission for the
syndicates. The publicist who can de
vise, a.way to change the tide of human
workers from the cities to the country;
from the non-productive to the produc
tive industries, by making farms and
farm life desirable, will be doing the
greatest service to his country. It is a
problem worth any man,'s effort The
wise man has no fears of over-production,
as this is only apparent, and is
really under-consumption; that is, if
conditions were right, all products
would be utilized. Thero should be no
burning of corn in the west and lack of
bread in tho east
Some delightful hours passed with old
friends of former days, as well as with
their genial sons and daughters, confirm
the couplet: :v
"I count myself in nothias m o happy,
Aa in a soul rememb'fiae my good friends."
But the native hills are all too high,
and the eyes, 'now long accustomed to
level stretches of land, cannot become
Mile upon milo of mountain slopes in
Virginia and West Virginia seem nso
less except to mock the perseverance
and industry of men. Many a good
farm in the valleys, but if all these
people knew our prairies once, what an
exodus there would be!
Washington, the capital of our
country, what a city of wide avenues,
fine parks and magnificent government
buildings. Two days and a half within
her limits are sufficient for merely a
glimpse of the many objects of interest,
and a- large book could not contain a
mere inventory of what was seen. Mr.
Bryan was the only Nebraska congress
man at his post, and is as fair a speci
men of democracy as was present. If
an ordinary debating society should be
have as do the members of congress,
when one of their number is on the
floor, it would be considered scandalous.
They move around or they talk with
each other, or they write letters, or
smoke, or anything but give respectful
attention to the one who is speaking.
The only exception I noted was when
Tom. Reed addressed the house. After
a few sentences everybody was listening
attentively, which was a real pleasure to
The most prominent character in the
senate, for the time, was Senator Hill of
New York. Looking at him, one can
readily believe that he is ambitious, and
that he will go great lengths to accom
plish his aims.
