One of the city papers contained an
item last week that might possibly be
misconstrued by some people. It was
concerning the electric light repair at the

Platte county's peculiar politics has
been costing Platte county tax-payers
too much money, and if the board of sup

they would their own private business;

their masters; that the same business

affairs as are or ought to be to personal

Platte county was ably represented
at the Irrigation convention at Kearney
by G. W. Phillips, R. S. Dickinson, John
Kersenbrock, J. W. Lynch and Albert
Stenger. The main body of the delegates
were from the western part of the state,
and they were very enthusiastic over
irrigation, but seem to lose sight of the
importance of water power along with
irrigation. The "right" law of California,
with some modifications, is thought to be
best suited to the condition of Nebraska.

Last Saturday a young lady driving
along Thirteenth street had qnite a little
scare all to herself. As she went to turn
the corner at the Thurston her horse
stumbled, and for a little while tried his
best to stand on his head. The sudden
jerk forward threw the young lady on to
the dash-board, where she did a very neat
bit of mid-air balancing. The horse
finally got on his feet, the young lady
regained her seat, and away they went
up the street, minus a tin bucket that
had fallen out during what she after
wards said came near being a Mid-Winter
Rev. Sisson is creating quite a stir at
Norfolk with his earnest pleas for chris
tian work. The line of his thought is
that God has done, is doing everything
possible for the world. Salvation is for
all men, envelopes the whole earth, and
can reach the lowest. He works through
human instrumentalities in the salvation
of the world. A teacher, he says, draws
something out of the pupil, not merely
crams something down him. Awakens
thonght and teaches the pupil to think.
The spirit will inspire the heart of the
teacher to point out the thoughts of God
as recorded not only in the word, but in
everv work of his hand.
Horace Harding is sojourning in the
far-away south, the land of the croco
dile, the bayou and the tarantula. Like
his great namesake, the noted Roman
poet, he is quite an entertaining writer,
and we expect to have some letters from
him that will be interesting to his old
friends here. We were not given the
privilege of quoting from a letter re-
1 ceived (neither were we enjoined ), and
we cannot well refrain. In describing a
band he says: "They are composed of
saw-mill hands from Minneapolis and
all the hobo musicians in the conntry,
but they play good music when they
are sober enongh to read it."
Rudolph Wurdeman met with an
accident Saturday night that might have
terminated seriously. He started home
with his team and buggy in the storm a
little after dark and as he turned the
corner south of town and started to go
west his team slipped off the grade, ran
against a post and turned him out. He
was stunned by the fall and lay there
some half or three-quarters of an hour
when Chas. Lund found him and brought
him to town. He was taken to the
North Western hotel, where he was treat
ed by Dr. McKinley. It was found that
he was only stunned and chilled and had
not been seriously hurt. He was able to
go home Sunday morning, his team hav
ing been brought to town. Leigh
The Quill believes that the proposed
irrigation ditch should be built by all
means and hopes our land owners along
this valley will favor it. With irrigation
not only would all crops be assured as
well as incre.ised, bnt we could then
raise potatoes and sugar beets in fine
style, as both need plenty of moisture.
A sugar factory for Schuyler would be an
assured fact with that ditch in to guar
antee the raising of the beets in large
quantities and when a crop failure is out
of the question. Irrigation means also
smaller farms and that is what we must
come to. Renters then could raise as
much off forty acres as they do now off
eighty and their rental prices would be
just half as much in total. What the
Quill says in the above concerning Schny
ler applies with equal force to that part
of the ditch in Platte county. Work was
1 begun, on the ditch Wedawday last.

There are several counties in western
Nebraska that have issued appeals for
help and the appeal has both heart aud
merit in it. Bnt the condition has made
it possible for an army of long-haired and
glib-tongued frauds to travel through
the east and prey npon the credulity of
the charitably inclined people. The Sun
has noticed articles in quite a number of
eastern papers speaking of meetings for
the relief of Nebraska drouth sufferers.
As a matter of fact one-half these charity
emissaries who are working the east are
frauds, who will convert every dollar
donated to them to their own nse and
hPTipfit. Manv of them never saw e
benent. .uany oi uiem . --
braska and their tales of woe are purely
a production of a fertile brain. If the j
people in the east desire to aid those who
are in distress on the frontier, there are
many channels through which they can
reach those in need. Let them send
money or clothing or food to the local re
lief committee at any county seat in the
state and it will reach persons who are
in need. Kearney Sun.
