WEDNESDAY. MARCH 14. 1BW.
A Wixterset, Iowa, man sued a young
lady who jilted him for breach of prom
ise and got a verdict of SI.
D. George L. Milleb has been ap
pointed by President Cleveland, surveyor
of the port of Omaha, an office paying
Borne $8,000 a year.
Three years more of Cleveland, and
then the business of the country will go
back to its old channels, if it can get
there. The change will be very notice
able. Neuraska-orowx tobacco is pronounc

The steamship Cevic, the largest
freighter alloat, sailed from New York
the other day for Liverpool, with the
largest cargo ever stowed in a single
vessel. The list of freight is lengthy, a
small part being 830 steers, 14,000 tons of
merchandise, kc, kc. The value of the
entire cargo was computed at 500,000.
What a fool a man would be, who had
wheat in his granary and a mill of his
own, to mortgage his farm to buy flour
for his family use. But he would be no
bigger fool than this nation with plenty
of bullion in the treasury and several
mints of his own, to issue bonds to bor
row money to pay its general expenses.
William Muitrnr, hailing from Colo
rado, was herding some cattle and they
got into C W. Bailey's corn, near Fnl
lerton. Bailey shut the cattle up and
resisted Murphy's endeavors to release
them. Murphy then went away, procur
ed a revolver, returned and renewed hos
tilities which resulted in Bailey being
shot. He may recover. Murphy was
put under arrest.
It was during his first administration
that President Cleveland wrote a mes
sage to congress showing the alarming
condition of "a protective tariff piling
up a dangerous surplus in the treasury."
He would like mighty well to have a lot
of "the dangerous surplus" just now. It
might prevent another issue of bonds,
and enable the government to pay its
debts when due. Inter Ocean.
The United States has been rather
prolific of epithets, especially in the
arena of politics. Some of the most
striking, such as dough-head, feather
head, half-breed, fire-eater, mugwump,
have had their day and now comes
cuckoo, which will doubtless last during
the present administration. The rhynis
ter catches the meaning in good shape:
The present derisive "cuckoo"
Is but an echo of "me too."
Nebraska keeps at the front. Senator
Allen has set all the statesmen at Wash
ington agog with the declaration that
there is no law for the 3100,000,000 gold
reserve; Billy Bryan keeps whooping 'em
up; H. D. Estabrook has all the New
York papers talking about his oratory;
and Buffalo Bill has licked Fred May
with neatness and dispatch. Nebraska
is one of the greatest states in the Union
and everybody is compelled to take cog
nizance of it Ijincoln Call.
Miss Mart. Mablix of Omaha has been
having some experience in trying to
obtain a husband. Not having secured
one in the ordinary fashion (by the pow
ers and fascinations of natural affection,
bo to speak), and seeing that time was
fast passing away, and thirty years of
her life added to the by-gone, she con
cluded to seek the help of a professed
clairvoyant, Mrs. Emile Francois. The
amount to be paid was $40, but the
promised husband didn't show up so
suddenly as Miss Marlin was led to be
lieve that he would, and the woman of
clear vision was called upon to make
good her contract. She made answer
that, as ex-President Johnson once said,
time is an element in all reforms, and
she must therefore exercise patience; be
sides, the clairvoyants power over tricks
of cnpid was always greater when larger
sums of money were laid down before
her. A gold watch and chain was then
given to the scheming clairvoyant on the
promise of a good husband with wealth
and happiness. We all knew, of course,
that this would be a very low price for
such a rare and precious piece of per
sonal property as a prime partner per-
ammuaung tnrougu the perilous paths
n life's perplexing pilgrimage, but even
this did not bring the wished-for biped,
and after waiting longer than the usual
"reasonable" time for the fulfillment of
"the gentle maiden all forlorn"
has sought the help of the courts to re
cover her $80, obtained under false pre
tenses. Herein are contained several
morals, the most apparent of which is
that good husbands are not forthcoming
at eighty dollars apiece paid to 'dealer
Ianoceat rareaaMcr Bill.
The world does move, aud its motion
can occasionally be measured. Protec
tion is due from the strong to the weak,
against the wily, but it has not always
been given. Indeed it has been too much
the case that men have eased their con
science by saying "Oh, if he is fool
enough to do so and so, let him suffer."
But responsibility cannot thus be
thrown off. Mankind are so closely link
ed together that the injury of one be
comes common ground for complaint.
How many of your fellow-citizens, men
of your own personal acquaintance, have
been cheated out of five, ten, fifty, hun
dreds and perhaps in a few cases, of
thousands of dollars by some scoundrel
in human shape, under some specious
guise or other!
The man who takes an order for a $25
lightning rod and raises it to $250, and
sells the purchaser's note to some banker
for $125, is doubtless a more refined
scoundrel than the man who enters your
dwelling at night for the purpose of rob
bing you of your money and if inciden
tally "necessary" to take your life, but
he is just as much of a villain.
There have been a number of methods
suggested to circumvent the sharper,
who by fraud secures a note and then
sells it to an "innocent purchaser" (one
who has no knowledge of the fraud), but
not any, that we know of, have been
placed upon the statute books of any of
It is therefore interesting, at least, to
know that the Iowa house of representa
tives has passed the following, which we
commend to the attention of the next
legislators of Nebraska:
Section 1. All notes taken by any
peddler for the purchase price in whole
or in part for any patent, patent right,
patent medicine, lightning rods, goods,
wares or merchandise, and all notes
taken by any insurance agent for the
premium on any policy of insurance,
shall, in addition to the amount due or
to be due thereon contain a statement
on the face of any and all such notes
that said note or notes are given for the
purchase price of such patent, patent
right, patent medicine, lightning rods,
goods, wares, or merchandise, or for the
premium of such policy of insurance:
and all persons who may afterward be
come the owner of such note or notes,
whether before or after maturity, shall
be deemed to have become possessed of
such note or notes, with notice of all the
defenses and equities against the same;
and any peddler or insurance agent who
shall take or receive any note or notes
for the purchase price of any such patent,
patent right, patent medicine, lightning
rods, goods, wares or merchandise, or for
the premium of any policy of insurance,
without writing or having stated in the
face of the note or notes the considera
tion for which the same is given. If the
note is for a patent the statement shall
be "patent note;" if for a patent right
the statement shall be "patent right
note;" if for a patent medicine the state
ment shall be "patent medicine note;" if
for lightning rods the statement shall be
"lightning rod note;" if for goods, wares
or merchandise the statement shall be
"merchandise note;" if for the premium
of any policy of insurance the statement
shall be "insurance note;" as the case
may be, shall be deemed guilty of a fel
ony, and on conviction thereof shall be
punished by imprisonment in the peni
tentiary for a period of not less than two
years nor more than five years, or by im
prisonment in the county jail not less
than three months nor more than one
year, or by a fine of not less than $100,
or by both fine and imprisonment."
If all reports are true, Nebraska will
see this spring the biggest immigration
in its history, all the railroads, but more
particularly the Burlington, receiving
from 50 to 100 letters per day asking for
facts and figures in relation to Nebraska
lands. These inquiries are not by any
means of the casual kind, but they come
from people making specific requests as
to information regarding the price of
lands, locations, religious and secular
advantages, just such inquiries as the
farmer would be expected to make who
contemplates making a change in his
home. Most of the inquiries come from
centers in Iowa and Illinois, who appre
ciate the growing importance of the state,
and desire to possess themselves of
homes before prices are advanced. The
Burlington, it is understood, will have
several colonization parties this year,
which they will locate along the line of
the system in the western part of the
state. The Elkhorn is also active in
populating its northwest line, while the
Union Pacific states that prospects were
never brighter for a big immigration.
All of which is particularly gratifying
news at this time. Omaha Bee.
Buddhism is represented by some
dozen papers. As it exists in Siam it is
concisely sketched by H. R. H. Prince
Chandradat Chudhadharn. The Siamese
form of the faith teaches that all things
are made up from the Dharma or
"essence of nature," itself formed of two
essences, matter and spirit, both eternal,
but compounded, dissolved and recom-
1 pounded in endless evolution. "The
four noble truths as taught by our mer
ciful and omniscient Lord Buddha" are:
1, "The very idea of self involves suffer
ing; 2, suffering is caused by lust of
sensuous or" Rupersensuous objects; 3,
the cessation of this lust insures extinc
tion of suffering; 4, the paths that lead
to the cessation of lust are eight right
understanding; right resolutions; right
speech; right acts; right way of earning
a livelihood; right efforts; right medita
tion; right state of mind, These lead to
"the absolute repose of Nirvana," which
H. R. H. roundly defines as "the extinc
tion of our being nothingness." From

Religions," by the Rev.F. Herbert Stead,

Seventeen double-decked cars of sheep
passed through here Monday morning
bound for England. They were from the
farm of Mr. Upton in the south part of
this county, and at Fremont four cars
more were added. The Northwestern
road will land the shipment in New York.
Dave Hale returned Monday evening
after an absence of three weeks in the
south. While away he traveled through
the greater portion of Virginia, North
Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas, Ken

what his mission was but we think he
was working in the interest of the North
and South railroad while in Arkansas,

I. S. Merrick, living a short distance
from town, has a shepherd dog that is "a
thing of beauty and a joy forever." He
turns his horses, cattle or hogs into the
stalks and tells the faithful Shep to herd
them and the dog will not allow them to
leave the field nor allow others to enter.
He will remain with them the entire day
and drive them safely home in the even
ing. The dog will not allow the animals
tc fight and considers himself an arbi
trator in all disagreements arising on the
farm. Brainard Tribune.
Last Friday evening n freight train on
the Union Pacific loaded a number of
tubs of butter at Fremont, then ran to
this point and sidetracked to allow an
other train to pass, being here about a
half hour. Then the run to Columbus
was made where more butter was to be
loaded. There it was discovered that
the seal on the car door had been broken,
the car entered, and five tubs of butter
stolen, supposed to have been done at
Schuyler while the train was on the
sidetrack. This place is getting a state

In district court Saturday the case of
A. W. Edwards against the city of Fre
mont is being heard before Judge Mar
shall. This involves the legality of the
occupation tax. Some months ago Ed
wards was in the city making a house-to-house
canvass for the sale of curtains
and other articles. He was arrested for
violating the occupation tax ordinance
in that he did not pay the stipulated
amount for the privilege of entering the
home market in competition with the
local merchants. His goods were attach
ed and he finally redeemed them by
paying the costs and the amount of the
tax. His present suit is to recover the
amount of tax paid. Fremont Tribune.
When F. A. Matson arrived at his store
Wednesday morning he found the front
door open, and going in discovered the
safe door also open, with part of the con
tents of the safe, together with some
tools, scattered around on the floor.
But the contents of the till box, over one
hundred dollars in currency, and about
two dollars in coin were missing, as were
also a revolver and several knives. Upon
examination it was found that a hole had
been bored into the door near the com
bination and the door blown open, a
part of the combination and the inside
casing of the door being broken. Several
tools had been borrowed from the black
smith shop of Steinbangh & Truelove
with which they entered the safe. En

been found or arrests made up to the

We print in this week's Journal a
long list of lands sold for the taxes.
Some of these include the taxes for sev
eral years, and all were bought by one
party. So long as your land has not
been sold for the taxes the rate of inter
est is ten per cent, but the tax liens bear
twenty per cent, which eats faster into a
pile of money than stray cattle into a
forbidden hay stack. It happens that
in this matter the owner of the land and
the investor in the tax lien are alike in
terested in the removal of the lien, at as
early a date as possible, thus the money
lender secures an even greater rate of
interest, and the owner's mind is free
from that much care.

Castoria is Dr. Samuel Pitcher's prescription for Infants

other Narcotic substance. It is a harmless substitute
for Paregoric, Drops, Soothing Syrups, and Castor Oil.
It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is thirty years' use by
Uillions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays
feverishness. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic. Castoria relieves
teething troubles, cures constipation and flatulency.
Castoria assimilates the food, regulates the stomach
and bowels, giving healthy and natural sleep. Cas
toria is the Children's Panacea the Mother's Friend.
M Caatoria Is an excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers hare repeatedly told me of its
good affect upon their children."
Dr. O. C. Osgood,
M Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day is cot
far distant when mothers will consider the real
Interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the Tarkms quack nostrums w hich are
destroying their lored ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graTes."
