"A Nebraska farm is a little the best
piece of property in the world, and to
this might be added that Colfax county
is a little the best in the state." Thus
talks the Howells Journal, but Colfax

ber of its close neighbors including our
own great county of Platte. "Stand up

Germany also grants Spain the most-favored-nation

and her colonies.
Saturday night about 7 o'clock a cy
clonic storm swept over Bock Rapids,
Iowa, in a northeasterly direction. A
house occupied by Andrew Juergensen
and family, seven in all, was entirely
demolished. The family was at supper
when the storm struck, and had no
notice of the monster until they were
flying through the air. The family
miraculously escaped with a few bruises,
the oldest girl having her dress burned
nearly off. The path of the storm was
only a few rods wide.
Speaking of trusts, one of our mer
chants recently said that if any more
money was to be made in the retail
trade, it would have to be done in the
next four or five years. For, said he,
the time is near at hand when manufac
turers will sell direct to the consumer,
but that the price would be the same as
to the retail merchant. In this way
they would kill the retail merchant
, without benefiting the consumer, and
'thus save all the profits to themselves.

Paul Vandervoobt has suggested to
President McKinley a solution, as he
believes, of the Cuban difficulty, and
says he will undertake to organize a
great body of veterans, trained in the
use of arms and plow alike, who shall be
equally ready to keep the peace by force
of arms and till the soil. He declares
that he has on his desk hundreds of let
ters from veterans of both sides of the
civil war who want to go to Cuba, and
all they require is slight encouragement
from the government

A letter received here Monday, June
5, from Frank C. Turner was dated at
Calampit, P. L, April 30, one week after
the death of Col. Stotaenburg. He was
efering very severely with a felon on
the middle finger of the right hand, and
the doctor had marked him on the "sick
book' to quarters with no duty. He
tells of events transpiring, the news of
which has already been conveyed by
telegram to all parts of the United
States. Some of Gen. Luna's officers,

The American speaks of receiving
many inquiries from Americans as to
opportunities for business and labor in
the Philippines. It answers in a general
way that natives work for $1 gold per
day or even less, as mechanics. When
the islands come to a peaceful condition
there will be many ways in which Amer
icans with financial backing can find
profitable investments. A number of
such are mentioned.

Last week The Journal noted the
death, at St Louis, Missouri, of Col.
Thomas Williams McKinnie Saturday,
May 27, 1899, at 2 p. m. He was aged GO
years, 6 months and 9 days, having been
born in Cadiz, Ohio, November, 18, 1838.
Mr. McKinnie received his education
in the public schools and unpretentious
colleges of his early manhood, and was
about to enter a theological seminary,
with a view to preparing for the min
istry, when the civil war broke out
He enlisted as a private in the first
year of the war, 1861, in the 120th Ohio
Volunteer Infantry, served during the
war, and was mustered out as Lieutenant-Colonel
of the regiment. During
the Battle of the Wilderness, he was
wounded in the right forearm, the ball
entering at the wrist and leaving the
arm near the elbow, so shattering the
bone that he never afterward had full
use of the arm. His regiment was near
Petersburg at the fall of Richmond.
At Cadiz, Ohio, September 22, 1868,
Mr. McKinnie was married to Miss
Alice M, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. C.
Turner, who preceded him to the spirit
Their four children are Carl Turner,
Maud Calvert Allen Chambers and
Burt Plumb, Maud dying in infancy,
the three sons now grown to manhood.
For a number of years beginning
with 1870, Mr. McKinnie was superin
tendent of the public schools of Fort
Scott Kansas, in 1879 removing to St
Joseph, Missouri, engaging in com'
mercial business. In 1891 the family
went to St Louis, where the remainder
of Mr. McKinnie's life was passed.
He had the happy faculty of making
friends, from the days of his early youth,
down to the last always considerate of
the feelings of others, and thoughtful
of their welfare before his own. Well
educated, he kept abreast of the times.
In political sentiment he was a staunch
Republican. In early life and until
thirty years old he was connected by
membership and in active work with
the United Presbyterian church, and in
later life affiliated with Congregational
ists and Presbyterians. His faith was
unshaken a Christian gentleman in all
that the words imply, his example and
influence were always for good, a clean,
pnre manly boy and man. He did not
use tobacco and never used alcoholic
In the prime of his life he was a large
man, standing six feet two inches in his
stocking feet and weighing 265 pounds.
During the last two years of his life he
was in constant and ever increasing
pain, the last four months spending in
bed,' pain almost unendurable, but with
it all, he never became impatient or
irritable, preserved his good and patient
nature as long as conscious, ever hope
ful, looking upon the bright side of life.
His wife preceded him by nearly four
years, being stricken suddenly while in
seemingly the beet of health. Their
lives had so grown together that the
parting was a most severe trial, but lie
bravely faced each day and every duty
was performed with his accustomed
cheerfulness and hopefulness.
About twelve hours before his death
he sank into a stupor from which he did
not rally.
At time of death, he was a member of
Ransom Post, No. 131, Grand Army of
the Republic.
Services were held at the family home
Tuesday evening last, conducted by
Rev. S. J. Niccols of the Second Presby
terian church, after which the bereaved
sons took up their sad journey to Ne
braska, friends covering the casket with
floral tributes, and Ransom post G. A.
B draping it with the United States
On arrival here Wednesday night, the
casket was conveyed to the residence of
J. A. Turner, where, Thursday at 10
o'clock there were short funeral services
conducted by Rev. Hayes assisted by
Rev. Mickel. Members of Baker Post
M. Whitmoyer, John Tannahill, J. R.
Meagher, W. A. McAllister, H. T.
Spoerry and A. W. Clark acted as pall
bearers, the last-named, as chaplain
reading the beautiful ritual of the order
and Rev. Hayes pronouncing the bene
diction at the grave.
"Life's labor done, as sinks the clay.
Light from its load the spirit flies;
While liearen and earth combine to say.
'How blest the righteous when he dies'."
"We sit beside the quiet shore
Oar spirits op to thine can reach.
Bat in tree words of human speech
We can communicate no more."
High ScMmI Graduates,
Last Friday night a large crowd of
people gathered at the opera house to
listen to the speeches and music of the
fifteen graduates, class of W. The
stage was decorated with the class colors,
white, yellow and green. The stage was
extended on both sides by triangular
platforms in front of the boxes; on the
east extension the piano was placed, and
on the west, potted plants and a piano
lamp. On the stage were members of
the school board, superintendent Wil
liams, Prof. Campbell, principal of the
high school, and the graduating class,
consisting of fifteen members eight
young ladies and seven young men.
The orchestra composed of Prof.
Garlichs, E. Pohl, 8. E. Marty, John
Stovicek, E. C. (Hockenberger and A.
Boettcher, rendered admirable music,
delighting the audience.
We cannot refrain from noticing here
and commending the close attention
given by most (nearly all) of the large
audience to the exercises, always a
a great help to those who are
endeavoring to entertain an audience.
Doubtless the reason for this attention
is not far to seek in the uniform clear
ness and strength of utterance of the
graduates. This was very noticeable,
and always has its effect upon an
audience. Some one has very truthfully
remarked that an attentive, an appre
ciative and responsive audience is a
strong element in every good speech.
The invocation was by Rev. Hayes and
the benediction by Rev.Rogers.
Science is a factor in progessfor many
reasons. It reveals to man his place in
nature. Facts are (fathered, classified.
grouped, general principles deduced,
and man thereby comes to dominion
over the forces of nature. As all is un
der law or rule, the first step in the line
of progress is to seek to know the law,
so that it may be intelligently applied
in the line of progress. Examples were
given in illustration of this general
principle. Give Science wings and there
will be no limit to progress.
Some objections that are constantly
urged against poetry were taken up
and refuted, and it was evident that
the speaker was thoroughly imbued with
the arguments in favor of what one has
designated as "the Divine art." Chau
cer, Shakspeare, Tennyson, Homer were
referred to, and some of their qualities
analyzed. The declaration that poetry
is dying out is not true, and cannot be
true so long as affection, joy, hope and
aspiration are important elements of
human nature. Poetry is a most in
structive and useful art It meets and
it helps to satisfy the noblest aspira
tions of our nature. It is the garnered
wisdom of the best sentiments of the
race. It teaches us to teach ourselves.
The nations that beet appreciate poetry
are the most progressive.
qvy q, rax.
Without desire on nun's part there
would be no progress. With the effort
to satisfy desire, progress begins and
continues. The evident law is that the
effort made determines the result, or the
amount possessed. Nature is a store
house of elements from which nan js to
get supplies for his progress. The
efforts of .man to provide himself with
food, shelter and slothing were referred
to at length, and the progress in these
hues traced through the ages down to
the present Also progress in manufac
tures, in education, etc. Toil, sacrifice,

"I wonder what that subject means
Black the Heel of your Boot" was an
expression of several of the audience,
but they were not long in learning the
general principle that we sbosjld avoid
the habit of doing things for mere show.
Those tratits of character we wish
others to think we possess, we should
have. The various occupations of life
came in for their share of criticism
along the line of display and show,
versus reality and merit The thrusts
were striking and appreciated by the
audience. The law maxim of "False in
one, false in all" was quoted as applica
ble in action. "God sees," no matter
whether in the dark or in the light be
earetal in all your work.

was The Typical American a combina
tion of elements from every nationality
on earth. Each nation with its peculiar
characteristics is then set forth and
briefly referred to and the claim made
that the commingling is producing the
greatest people on earth because they
possess the good qualities of all and are
fast eliminating the weaker traits of all.
Various illustrations are given of this,
and the assertion made that there seems
no reason why the Typical American
should not become the Ideal Man, and
the United States, the Ideal Nation.
We are proud of Uncle Sam's Boys.
Their loyalty, couragi and heroism have
been shown at Gettvahurg, Lookout
mountain; their skill and pluok at Ma
nila and Santiago. We live under a
government which teaches independ
ence. Attempt to coerce American citi
zens, and 10,000 swords leap to their de
fence. Our principle is liberty and not
conquest Each man is a sovereign of a
kingdom, the truest and the best. The
boys will sacrifice their lives for Uncle
Sam, and in the main they are all right,
Some look to authority and are inclined
to hold to the past, others are for prog
ress without mnch reference to the past,
but the true way is between the two
keep what is good out of the past, prove
all things of the offered new, and thus
go forward with sure steps.
Those in whom trusts are reposed are
responsible for their fulfillment Con
ductors of railway trains, responsible
for the many lives that come under their
charge, usually begin their preparation
as brskemen, serving many years with
diligence and carefulness before they
are entrusted with the more important
functions of a conductor of a passenger
train. Various other illustrations were
given of the principle where great men
recognized the responsibilities laid upon
them, and met them with satisfaction.
Washington, Lincoln, Dewey were very
conspicuous examples of the true sense
of responsibility, they were equal to
the occasion. A beautiful and touching
illustration was given in the relation of
the incident where the captain of a
vessel stayed at his post of duty, looked
after the safety of the passengers, then
of the crew, but himself went down with
his sinking ship, a hero recognizing to
its fullness the idea of personal respon
God brings the right man at the
right time, in the right place, for the
crises of life. The saving of the Union
under Lincoln and the overthrow of the
doctrine of the Divine right of kings,
combatted by Cromwell in favor of per
sonal freedom, were considered sufficient
as illustrations. The Creator has pur
poses for men as agents to carry out, all
through the journey of life, and success
results from the concentration of effort
Her theme was treated in a very com
plete manner. She was first of her class
in the general average of her studies,
and is entitled to the free courses at
Doane and Bellvne colleges.
One unwavering aim, one obeject su
preme, the master of one trade, is the
true plan. "Give me liberty or give me
death" said Patrick Henry. To do right
is above every other consideration and
was the motto of Gladstone and Bis
murk. If you can't go over go through
or around your obstacle.
The great curse of this age is to get
something for nothing in gambling,
counterfeiting, stealing of all shades and
grades, in the homes, in the social and
business world, in church and state.
But there can be no doubt of the prin
ciple that an equivalent is always furn
ished. We have had abundant proof of
this in our school life, just as we see it
elsewhere. In the acquisition of knowl
edge, in the development of talents,
those gifts of the Creator, we should
especially be conscious that "for value
received, I promise to pay." The senti
ment of Carlyle to reform yourself and
there will be one rascal less, and the
example of Miss Willard, followed, would
change the face of the world.
The spirit which strives to overcome
all difficulties makes right prevail, ob
tains success, conquers selfishness, sub
dues pride, overcomes internal and ex
ternal evils. Willpower and persever
ence endure toil, and, without wasting
time and energy in mere wishing or
dreaming, press forward toward the
goal. Truly, obstacles are incentives to
greater effort, and this thought, with its
manyneat illustrations, formed the re
mainder of the speech,

theme was The Influenoe of Biography.
There is no more potent influence. The
influence of men whose genius, courage
or ability has lifted them above the corn-
mass of mankind never dies, and
their biographies load others to emulate
their examples. Biographies of the past
are like examples of the present Precept
and advice are but little good, however,
if practice does not follow preaching.
The truly great never die. The Bible is
referred to as one source of the best
lessons in biography, whether of good
or bad characters. Time would fail to
enumerate all the great and noble whose
Msorded lives stand out as models, but
suffice to say that their memory is
garlanded afresh by eaeit aiiaieedjng
generation, and their biographies are
beacon lights to guide the seeker after
truth and wisdom, to the narrow path
of knowledge and duty,
"Just Around the Corner' proved a
happy title, under which to gather some
of the expectations, the hopes, the sur
prises, the failures, the calamities of
life, out of eight just here, but suddenly
appearing to our view around the corner.

Along these there are great air castles,

The great problem before the Ameri
can people for solution is that of terri
torial expansion. The Spanish-American
war was begun to expel the tyrant
from near onr shores. The volunteer
soldiers were commended for their
bravery and patriotism, but now we are
engaged in an unjust and cruel war.
The speaker endeavored to give reasons
for sailing it a cruel war, by likening
the Filipinos to our fore-fathers in their
struggle with England. With the
speaker, expansion seemed to be syn
onymous with "imperialism."
Uncle Sam's girls enjoy the largest
and truest liberty ever known among
women. The superior character of the
women is one of the causes of that
freedom to which the ladies of Europe
and the farther east are strangers. The
doors of opportunity have opened to the
persistent knocking of ambitious wo
men. They have become here quite a
factor in politics and it is to be hoped
that the politics will be favorably af

The address of Supt Williams, in pre
senting the diplomas, unified the exer
cises by neat references to the general
principles involved in the several ad
dresses and invoking a class pride
which would always lead to emulation

people of the United States are sure to
appreciate him as one of the men not
afraid to pit the possibility of defeat
against the probability of success. Like
Jackson, he takes the responsibility and
goes ahead, and doing everything to
win, does win. He's a jolly tar, a good
soldier, a brave man, a patriot, and an
admirable admiral.
