COMBINE FOB GOOD.
BEST ELEMENTS OF PLATTE
COUNTY SHOULD UNITE.
Woala Mean Victory and Ktjoiciag,
IVkere Anything Else Wonld be
Defeat and Shame.
Of course the evident policy of dem
ocratic politicians of Platte county is to
keep voters divided into as many blocks
as possible, only being sure that their
own crowd shall be the most numerous
A ticket combined of good republi
cans and good alliance men, unobjec
tionable as individual citizens, and well
qualified for the several positions, would
command success in the coming cam
paign; and the hearty support of a num
ber of democrats, dissatisfied with the
present administration of their party
matters, would make assurance of the
election of such a ticket doubly sure.
One has not far to look to see the ex
treme anxiety already manifested by
democratic wire-pullers in anything and
everything looking toward a combina
tion of the political forces in the county
opposed to them.
It ought to be plain to every man who
thinks, that there is slim probability of
the election of either an independent or
a republican ticket Talk might as well
be equally as plain as the thinking.
It is a question of first: whether the
democratic party, itself, shall allow its
nnf oiamnnt. tn dictate its Dolicv in
this county? Second: whether the re
maining two largest sections of voters
and taxpayers will continue traveling in
nearly parallel roads and allow their
common enemy to conquer them in de
tail, when they could, by combining
their forces, secure a victory, and be
sure of it from the start of the cam
paign, and that without any compro
mise whatever of political principle
merelv occupying for the campaign and
for county matters, common ground
and common cause, and both working
for the overthrow of a personal domina

Platte county and the enjoyment of the
emoluments of the same, which has be
come more rancorously objectionable to
talented competent men of the dem
ocratic party even, outside the "in
fluence," than to members of other po
TUo. iwct flint, these workers ask is
that tho opposition to them do not get
together. They themselves will do all
they can to keep the republican and al
liance forces apart, and it was plain that
they had their lieutenants in the late
twitMilist. rniintv convention at Platte
Center working their best to that end.
Failing to keep the opposition apart,
their next move would be to secure the
nomination, (by ways which they so
well know), of weak men upon the op

whom all their number can heartily sup

No single man of all your number
need deceive himself by thinking that
he has a particle of show for election to
an office in Platte county this year, on a
separate ticket. It is simply a moral
One word to those democrats who
would hail with gladness a change of
party masters, provided that change
brought better men. You can see that
a small part of the party have been
using the whole party for their own
personal benefit, almost exclusively.
Why longer permit it? It has not been
a matter of anything much but the
emoluments of office for themselves and
their friends and not for you, and why
should you continue to do their bid
ding? You help pay all the bills they
help pile up and get allowed, now see to
it that there is a change. Overthrow
ing the worst element of your party, you
will be doing good party service. So
continuing to do always, you cannot
more effectually serve your country.
Don't give up your distinctive political
(governmental) principles, but help the
good people of all parties in Platte
county to do a little work in the way of
true progress in the conduct of county
matters, in this year 1893. It is badly
needed. The peculiar stringency of the
times compels fair-minded, thinking
men to look about them and see what
they can do to better their condition, if
they can, to hold their own, if pos

Now is tho best time to do effective
work to save your interests. Don't

LOVE IN AUSTRALIA.
My revenge was terribla I had
been cruelly wronged, however, and"
can scarcely be blamed for what I did.
For the purposes of this narrative, I
will call myself Luke Gilbert I am
a native of Coventry, in England, and
went to Australia to improve my pros
pects in life. The other man, the
reader must know, was Victor Lam
bert a native of New York city. I
had been an old and trusted employe
In Gerald's large jewelry establish
ment at Staunton, Australia and was
greatly esteemed by my employer, a
man well advanced in yean. When
Lambert came, he presented unim
peachable credentiala He was a tall,
handsome fellow, with a captivating
manner, and it was not long before he
became a favorite with every one.
I never liked him from the first and
I liked him less when he innocently
won away from me the affections of
Amy Gerald, a girl I had loved with
passionate idolatry from early child
hood. Oftea had she entwined her
white arms about my neck, and, nest
yf H K(y fact upon jay breast,
vowed that she bW me dearer than
any one on earth; and when he came
she was wearing 4. ring I had given
her as a pledge of betrothal. But,
aftor Lambert had been with us "a? lit
tle over a year, her manner grew
strangely cold to me; and one night
when I called to see her, she told me,
with great tears standing in her eyes,
that she had been mistaken she had
never really loved me; and what she
had felt for me was only esteem and
friendship, and she added, as she
handed me back my ring:
"Luke, you will forgive me, won't
fou, and still be my friend?"
I made no reply I could not
Every drop of blood in my body

drunken man. and went out into the
open air. I think I should have
killed myself there and then had not
thoughts of revenge entered my mind.
These thoughts kept me alive and
enabled me to go about my duties as
One day Lambert came to me and,
in his usual pleasant way, said:
Luke, old fellew. you must con
gratulate me. for I consider myself
the most fortunate as well as the hap
piest man on earth."
I know well enough to what he was
alluding and, though a dreadful pain
convulsed my heart. I maintained a
steady countenance and replied:
"Congratulate you! Why, wnat
has befallen you?"
"Why. ho said, with a little iaugn.
I am going to niarry Amy Gerald in
the autumn and I want you to rejoice
in my good fortune."
'Ah!1' was all I said, as I took his
proffered hand. Oh, how 1 hated him
then, and how I longed to deprive him
of his boasted happiness; and, soon
after that, tho means was given to me
to do so.
One night during the summer, a
jewelry store on a contiguous street
was entered by burglars and a large
amount of valuables taken therefrom.
This alarmed old man Gerald and he
requested that I and Lambert should
lodge in the store for a period of two
or three weeks.
Lambert talked in his sleep, and one
night he babbled forth words that
placed him in my power. How I
gloated over the prospect of a speedy
revenge! I felt easy in my conscience,
too, for the means had been placed in
my hands without any efforts of my

The weeks rolled by, and Victor
Lambert was more popular than ever.
His praises were rung daily into my
ears, "lias tne mating oi a una man
in him.'' was the universal comment.
I smiled, in a grim kind of way. when
I heard him spoken of. but I never
said yea or nay. I held to my secret
the secret that was to destroy the
man who had come like a thief in the
night, and stolen away my happiness.
The autumn came on. and the day
that Amy Gerald was to become the
bride of Victor Lambert arrived. The
marriage took place that morning,
and the couple were to leave earl' for
an extended bridal tour.
The spacious mansion was crowded
with guests. Everybody was happy
except myself. I went round morose
and heavy-hearted, feeling more like
a condemned criminal than a guest at
a merry wedding. I drew away from
the gay assemblage, and sought a se
cluded corner, where I stood alone
and communed with myself. Now, as
the hour drew near. I dreaded to
strike the blow that was to ruin two
young lives forever.
Why do this?" a small voice whis
pered in my ear. "Better far, and
more noble, to smother revenge and
anger, and go forth into the world
with ill-will towards no one."
But," interrupted another voice.
you have been very deeply wronged.
You have been robbed of a happiness
that was rightfully yours, by one who
Is totally unworthy. Strike revenge
yourself ere it is too late!"
I came to myself with a start, and
all the old bitterness surged through
me. "Strike revenge yourself!"
rang in my ears with fearful distinct
ness. Yes. I would strike and strike
deeply, too. I looked round me. The
vast room had been emptied of all
save Victor Lambert and myself. He
was standing leaning against the
mantel piece, unaware of my pres
ence. The time for my revenge had
come. I advanced noiselessly and,
laying my hand heavily upon his
shoulder, I hissed in his ear:
Henry Mervin, you are an impos
tor! I know your past Ufa. I know
of the forgery you committed in New
York, for which crime you were sent
to prison for a term of years. I know
all about your escape after serving
two years of your sentence. But for
you I should have been a happy man
to-night You have blighted my life
and robbed me of the only joy I ever
had. The happiness you have de
prived me of shall not be yours. The
ollicers of the law shall ba put upon
When I ceased speaking Lambert's
face had assumed the hue of death,
and he was trembling in every limb.
Raising his hand in a supplicating
manner, hs said in a scarcely audible
"For heaven's sake. Luke, have
mercy on me! You surely would not
blight my life and hers. Give me a
chance, Luke, only a chance."
No," I said in a cold, hard voice.
I will show you no mercy. It is too
late to think of tnat"
He looked at me with an expression
of mute despair. Then he turned and
strode from the room, mtfttering as he
"Heaven have pity on us have
pity on us!"
A faintness came over me, and I
Mood, I know not how long, in a
dazed and helpless manner.
Presently I was aroused by people
entering and calling for Victor. He
could not be found and the train in
which the bridal party was to leave
would start in twenty minutes. All
was excitement and bustle, in the
midst of which a servant entered, and
advancing to Amy. handed her a note.
She hastily tore it open and read it.
Suddenly she swayed to and fro, and
before assistance could reach, fell
with a low cry, to the floor. In a few
moments she lay a corpse where she
had so lately stood a happy bride. I
picked up the note that had fallen
from her hand and read:
"I am going Heaven only knows
where. My life is ruined. I shall never
return. Do not seek me. Good-bye.
No one knew of the part I had
played in the tragedy on that awful
day. Terrible, indeed, was my re
venge. Years passed by. At the death of
the old man Gerald, I became proprie
tor of the establishment 1 left my
place of business only long enough
each day to visit Amy's grave.
One winter's morning I started out
to make my accustomed visit As I
turned the corner of the little church
the cemetery came in full view. I was
greatly startled to see lying at full
length upo&.Jh gray wfaera Aj
Gerald was sleeping the figure of a
man! Slowly I approached. The man
was either unconscious or asleep. His
hat had fallen from his head and his
hair, which was snowy white, fell over
his shoulders. I bent over the pros
trate form of the sleeper and called
him to arise. He heeded me not I
placed my hand upon the body and
turned tho face upwards. I knew
it instantly, despite the worn and
haggard look, the long, white hair.
It was Victor Lambert, and dead. He
had found peace. A week afterward
I left Australia forever, to pass my
life in aimless, unhappy wanderings.
The revenge I took upon my enemy
was terrible, but that which I wreaked
upon myself was much more so. I
am .anxiously awaiting the end.
