The Jouknal was the recipient Fri
day of the Chicago Tribune Golden
Jubilee number, forty-eight pages, a
goodly portion of it colored pictures.
The Tribune was established June 10,
1847, the first 400 copies being worked
oiT on a Washington hand press. Chi
cago was then ten years old and unin
corpotated. The population was 16,859;

telegram ever been received in the city.

little folks. They are taught to sing
Volunteer songs and memorize passages
of scripture. Don't fail to send the
little ones along. Don't forget where
the hall is, three doors east of the State
bank on Twelfth street.
The Fremont Tribune of Thursday
contained tho following paragraph:
"No. 4, tho 8:35 a. m. passenger train
from the west on the Union Pacific road,
picked tip the dead body of a tramp this
forenoon, found on the track between
Benton and Schuylor. The body was
cut equarely in two, one-half being be
tween the rails and the other lying in the
ditch at the side of the track. The body
was taken to Schuyler, where an inquest
will be held. At last accounts the iden
tity of the dead man had not been ascer
tained." Saturday evening last Dr. Voss' fine
horse broke a leg, and was killed to put
him out of his misery. In some of the
cities of the United States, these days,
they have hospitals for animals, where
all such can be cared for at moderate
expense, and thus pain lessened and val
uable lives 6aved. A man relates that
in a pasture near St. Louis the other
day he saw a horse with one wooden leg
he didn't suppose he could pull on a
heavy load very well, but there he was
in the pasture, along with other horses.
The Schuyler Herald of a recent
date has this to say of the father of our
C. C. Hardy, who will be remembered as
having been at the Sisters' hospital here
after his accident:
"Washington Hardy the jolly old well
dicser. who several years ago met with a
frightful accident falling down a well
eighty-five feet deep, having both legs
and an arm broken in a number of places
and whose recovery was a little short of
miraculous, was in Schuyler Monday
and Tuesday of this week, having walked
nine miles. This he said, was the lon
gest walk he had taken since his acci
dent," Platte county is not alone in the
effort at fusion between the different
wings of the democratic and populistic
parties. Madison is having her exper
ience, and it is very similar to that of
Platte. One of the journals there re
marks that "if fusion means fusion on
populist lines, Barkis is willin'. If
fusion means that the populist party is
to be a large and juicy thistle for the
democratic mule to swallow, they don't
hanker after it." The doubtful part of
this last assertion is good enough to
leave just as it is..
It is about the same state of affairs
in Butler county as here, so far as the
combination of political opponents are
concerned. Of course the main ques
tion in all is the due apportionment of
the offices, and this is the way the David
City Press suggests that it ought to be
''There is only one fair way to divide.
Let the populists and democrats take
two offices each and the silver republi
cans one. Let the populists and demo
crats flip coins for the first choice, and
give the loser the privilege of choosing
the next two choices and the party get
ting first choice to have the fourth."

Tho only visible evidence of the work of
the blunderbuss is the activity of tho

The Cecilian club held the last
meeting of the year Monday evening at
the home of Miss Mary Henry. Tho
officers for the coming year will be, Mrs.
Chambers director, Miss Elsie Morse
vice director, Miss Pearl Mosgrove sec
retary and Miss Grace Taylor treasurer.
The club with invited friends will have
a picnic today (Wednesday) at Stevens'
grove. The following program was ren
dered by members of the club: Vocal
solos by Mrs. Chambers, Miss Rickly
and Miss Galley; piano solos by Misses
Becher, Henry and Parker; vocal duetts
by Misses Grace Taylor and Zura Morse
and Misses Martha and Alice Turner.
The club also sang a few choruses, after
which they were treated to refreshments
by the hostess and Miss Mosgrove. The
club have adjourned to meet in Sep
tember. Imagine a party of fishers out all

home late at night and having but one
good-sized fish in the lot, all the others
no 'count kind. Imagine them all, such
as they were, nicely cleaned by the very
tired fishermen, and placed safe away.
And then imagine a great tall neighbor
who didn't go a-fishing, but who knew
about the large fish and where to find it,
and then imagine him sneaking around
early the next morning to get that fish
and have it for his breakfast, thus reap
ing where ho had not sown, so to speak
eating where he had not caught. His
mouth watered even at the thought of

Dannie is not fusing this year and hence
the Telegram is armed with a dagger for
all of Dannie's opponents, como from
whatever direction they may. Because
Dannie has been, "first, last and all the
time" for the Telegram, the Telegram
is simply returning the compliment.
Thoso who are tied together merely by
political principle must not feel harshly
toward the Telegram editor because of
this stand of his for both "principal and
interest." The Joukn'al will not begin
to undertake the task of getting the
Argus and the Telegram together; we
only desire to call the attention of
Journal readers to the fact that they
are now apart.
Marshal Tummell has received from
Attorney General McKenna a
telegram stating that under a
ruling of the Controller jnet made all
deputy marshals go out of office with
the marshal and that if any are retained
by a successor they must be recommis-
stoned in order to get their pay. Accord
ingly, says the World-Herald, Miss Ger
trude Kearney of Plattsmouth, who, as
stenographer and typewriter, has been
an office deputy, and who has been hold
ing on under the supposed civil service
extension, has been let out, and Charles
W. Pearsall of Columbus appointed in
her stead. He has entered on his new
doties. Deputies in the internal revenue
department are beginning to suspect
that the same ruling will drop them out.
Collector North has said that he believed
they would all have to go on change of
collectors. This may give a chance for
some other Columbus men.
Editor Parks of the Telegram was
altogether out of sorts last week, and
struck out right and left, at anything
which appeared in sight, but it is plainly
evident- that the thing which dis
gruntled him was "the few democrats in
this city who have undertaken the job
of delivering their party over to tho
tender mercies of the pops at the coming
election." Listen, again: "And now the
greedy pop crew of the county, led by
'Oily Gammon' Saunders, want the dem
ocrats, who have a clear majority over
all in the county to fuse with them and
give the pops the choice of offices. Was
there ever such bare-faced impudence?
If these fellows had a spark of gratitude
in their political make-up which they
haven't they would allow the demo
crats to name a ticket, and then be glad
to vote for it, although their votes are
not necessary for its success. But, liko
the leach, gorged as they are with offi
ces given to them through democratic
votes, they cry 'more, more!' " This is
rather peculiar and touching language
to be used towards a fellow-fusionist
but, then, we remember, ho does not
intend to fuse, not this year.
Last Sunday morning week, James
Bell's elevator at David City was com
pletely destroyed by fire. It is not
known how it originated. The loss ap
proximated $25,000; insurance only $7,
000. The News says Mr. Bell has been
extremely unfortunate with his eleva
tors, only about four yoars ago while in
Europe tho one at Stromsburg being
burned. About a month ago he lost the
one at Shelby by fire, and had just com
pleted arrangements to rebuild it, begin
ning Monday, when he met with his
heavy loss here, but with his characteris
tic pluck and energy ho has gone ahead
with it and expects to have it ready for
business in about three weeks. He will
rebuild here also, but in a small way for
the present, but will probably not do
anything until he knows what will be
dono with the light plant. If ho re
builds that, then ho will make his eleva
tor small. If not, then he can increase
the size of his elevator.

across the nose and over a greater part
of the face, causing unsightly aoraa.

deriving temporary benefit at times, my

with no ray of hope. At this stage I

could cure me. As a drowning person
grasping at a straw I entered his private
hospital, and in a short space of time I
was able to leave tho hospital a well

but little sign of the dread disease.
While in the hospital there were also
removed from my body seven cancers,
and that without the use of the knife.
The medical fraternity scoff at the idea
of cancers being removed without the
knife. But I am a living proof that it
can be and is done by Dr. Lieber. To
all those poor mortals who have given
up the battle against this dread disease,
I say don't despair, but consult with the
doctor. I make this statement out of
pure sympathy for similar sufferers, and
will be glad to see or answer any in
