And harvest hands wore a thick mitten

And calls to my mind the past sorrow and shame
Of rattlesnakes, rum ana confusion.

But were I encumbered with that ladj s name

Why eo much worship of gold? It
is just as much of a commodity as silver
is, or wheat, or corn, For a given num

wheat, ordinarily, but if a man was star

wheat, he would be much of a fool if he
preferred the gold.

At the Commercial bank are two
sample specimens of Platte county
grain that are worth looking at. The
winter wheat is from the farm of Welch
& Son in the western part of the county
and is from a yield of 580 bushels on 17
acres, or very nearly 34lg bushels to the
acre and weighing 62 pounds to the
bushel from the machine pretty fair
for what is now known as a dry year.
The other is corn from the farm of C. H.
Sheldon, purchased of S. C. Gray, the
ears being large and plump, and ap
proaching the dimensions of John Tan
nahiU's biggest ear of corn in the world.
The following bit of advice is wor
thy of consideration: "When you are
preparing to come to town to do some
trading, pick up your home paper, glance
at the advertising columns and see who
wants your trade. We'll guarantee that
if you trade with those who recognize
the local papers as an incentive to their
business, they will save you money.
The man who advertises certainly has
inducements to offer yon or he wouldn't
ask you to call on him before buying
elsewhere. fSchuylor Herald.
Henry C. Bean was at the re-union
at Grand Island last week from Wed
nesday to Friday. He heard the
speeches of the governors, saw the big
ox weighing 4,000 pounds, the big water
melons and the big crowds of people.
The country there, he says, is very dry,
and the farmers are cutting their corn
as a substitute for hay. Comrade
Spoerry says that the number at the re
union seemed about as many as usual,
but many of the old faces were replaced
by younger ones.

The Fair Association have secured
the celebrated Doubt family, orchestra
and band players, for one of the attrac
tions of the fair next month. They
have been playing at Chautauqua
grounds and Burlington Beach at Lin
coln during the summer, and nre highly
spoken of. There is nothing like music
to draw a crowd, and the association
have secured a treat for the people in
getting this family. A balloon ascen
sion by a lady aeronaut is one of the at
tractions. State fair this week, and the atten
dance, we think, will be unusually
large. It certainly will be one of the
very best fairs in the history of the state.
As the commonwealth grows in age and
in wealth more interest is naturally
taken in exhibits; more people can at
tend, and the results will naturally be
greater. Columbus should take es
pecial pride in the state fair these times,

Moodj, the great evangelist, is not
on a preacher of the goodtidings to
men, but ho takes some very good common-sense
views of the situation.
When asked what advice he would give
those who aro out of employment, he
said: "First of all, to seek the king
dom of God and His righteousness, be
lieving his promise, which I never know
to fail, that all things will bo added
unto them. Second, to pray to God for
work. Third, to bo as patient as pos
sible during these times of hardship.
Fourth, to look earnestly for work.
Fifth, to take any honest employment
that offers itself. Sixth, to study econ
omy. I think one of tho great needs of
our country is that the laboring men
own their own homes. What these men
want is not charity, but an opportunity
to earn an honest living. Charity is do
grading. Employment is elevating.
No self respecting man wishes charity.
Give him a chance to work and ho will
support himself and family, and, at the
same time, preserve his self-respect."
Down at Lincoln the county attor
ney is making quite a rattling among the
dry bones of the justices who have col
lected fines and not turned them over.
He has notified justices of the peace, po
lice officers and other magistrates of the
county that according to sections 531 and
539 of the criminal code of the state, they
are required to turn over to the county
treasurer all fines, costs, etc. due to the
county or state, within ten days of re
ceiving the same, and also on or before
the 1st day of February of each year to
make out and deliver to the county clerk
a statement in writing of all fines
assessed for the year ending the 1st day
of January next preceding.
A genuine surprise was given Mrs.
O. D. Butler and Mrs. J. B. Leedom at

There was a small entertainment, at the

the ladies of the church, presented Mrs.
Leedom with a black dress, but beforo
Mrs. Butler was comfortably seated
again Mr. Adkins called her up and
with a neat little speech presented her
with nn upholstered rocking chair and
two dainty finger bowls. It was such a
surprise to both ladies that the audience
derived as much pleasure from it as the
recipients of the presents. Both worthy
ladies are held in the highest esteem of
the entire church.
A lady has discovered a plan to keep
watermelous in their natural form and
flavor for an indefinite length of time.
She has successfully tried in past seasons
and as a consequence has been able to
treat her family to a watermelon at
Christmas. Tho plan is an inexpensive
and simple one and consists in giving the
melon three or four coats of varnish to
exclude the air. She says they not only
keep from decay, but that the flavor and
sweetness are retained, and when eaten
at Christmas or New Year's the fruit
seems wonderfully improved in these
particulars. Lincoln Journal.
