their masters; that the same business
principles must be applied to country
affairs as are or ought to be to personal
ones, there would be a lower rate of taxation.

It is the duty of the merchant hav
ing goods to sell to advertise them in the
newspaper which makes his town a place
worth doing business in, says the Omaha
Herald. If a merchant in another town
has the good sense to advertise in a news
paper, it is the publisher's duty to accept
such patronage. If the home merchant
desires to hold this trade let him adver
tise liberally in his home paper and he
will hold it. The merchant who does
not think enough of "home institutions"
to patronize his homo paper, does not
conduct a "home institution" himself
and is not entitled to "home patronage."

Columbus is now agitating the
atmosphere for a normal school. Albion
never did want anything but what some
other town had to jump in and try to
carry off the plum.
The Albion Argus, from which the
above is quoted, must remember that
Columbus came near being tho capitol
of tho stato of Nebraska, long before
Albion was thought of as a town (so near
and yet so far), and we may very reason
ably be excused for indulging in the
hope of securing a state normal school.
As this is the customary week for
making new resolutions, just read some
that Bishop Beveridge made two hun
dred years ago: "I am resolved, by the
grace of God, never to speak much, lest
I often speak too much, and not to speak
at all, rather than to speak to no pur
pose. Always to make my tongue and
heart go together, so as never to speak
with the one what I do not think in the
other. To speak of other men's sinB
only before their faces and of their
virtues only behind their backs."
Mrs. Geo. Barnum received the sad
news of tho death of her mother, Mrs. L.
S. Kimball, on Christmas morning, from

est sons to Van Wyck, Idaho, nine years
ago. Died Dec. 10, 1894, aged a3 years
and seven months. For her many esti
mable traits of character she was loved
and respected by her neighbors, who
deeply sympathize with her aged hus
band and family in their irreparable loss.
Fremont is quite a city in several
ways, and has the reputation of being
one of the prettiest in the state. Among
its possessions is an indebtedness that,
in times like these, is quite an offset to
its many advantages. It owes, in thous
ands of dollars, 89 in water bonds, 38 for
paving, 15 for city hall, 10 for court
house, 80 for 6ewer, and curbing bonds
enough to bring it up to 8233,265, the
annual interest charge of which amounts
to S12,905. Besides this large indebted
ness, the Fremont Bchool district has
835,000 in bonds outstanding. Quite

We notico that some of tho county
clerks put into their supplies notice, a
request for bids on all the lines of job
work required for the county, including

lots called for under the Australian bal

dockets, documents for county superin

Also for the printing and publication of

required by law to be printed and pub

printed and published in the county. In
these there are some good suggestions
to our board of supervisors. Take the
reins in your own hands, and drive your
own team. If not, why not?

she could ride no farther. Boggs & Fix,
the hospitable proprietors of the Hack
