Couxty Attorxey Hunger described
the imbecility of the present law govern
ing county treasurers very concisely,
when be told Treasurer McLaughlin that
to deposit the county funds in a bank
that was not a county depository would
be embezzlement, while there being no
eoaaty depositories in Lancaster, and
isnt likely to be because the banks
would not pay interest on county funds,
be could not deposit any money in any
bank and be free from danger. Mon
keying with these things in the legisla
ture always leads to grief. Because one
year then is a great rush for county

tititra for it, is no sign that any bank

After a legal battle in the United
States courts covering a period of more
than two years, Joseph Wilkins,of Wash
ington, D. C, and Howard Builer, of
Philadelphia, were sent to prison to
serve sentences imposed on them for
having violated the law regarding the
sale of oleomargarine. Wilkins was
recently sentenced to imprisonment for
six months and to pay a fine of $1,500
and Butler to four months' imprison
ment and a fine of $500. Wilkins and
Butler were wholesale dealers in oleo
margarine in Philadelphia. The case is
of national importance, as Wilkins and
Butler are the first to be sent to prison
for violating the national oleomargarine
laws. Other dealers convicted of selling
oleomargarine as genuine butter have
succeeded in getting off with the pay
ment of fines.
Our old friend W. H. Ashby of Beat
rice is out in the Omaha World-Herald
of January 9, in a 3-column article under
the title, "Question as to the Power of
Congress to Deny Free Coinage of Sil
ver," which he closes thuB: "Let Colo
rado and Nebraska waste no time in
fruitless efforts to get silver coined, upon
the ground that it is 'money of the con
stitution.' 'Silver' is not 'money' at all,
more than zinc or tin. The constitution
does not compel the coinage of a silver
owner's silver any more than it compels
the coinage of the gold owner's gold or
the zinc owner's zinc These metallists,
both mono and bi, need to learn some
thing of the nature of money." On this
point, Mr. Ashby purposes enlightening
his fellow-citizens shortly in a book.
That part of the democratic press of
the state which permits itself to use,
advertisements and all, the copious mat
ter sent out by the "reform press bureau"
must feel a bit sheepish when it realizes
how neatly it is being "worked" for the
benefit of a dozen or two expert salary
grabbers and junketers under the guise
of reformers. Editors who cannot get a
mile of transportation for themselves, or
credit for a night's lodging at a Twin
City hotel, cheerfully yield advertising
space to pay for the board, lodging and
traveling expenses of the "bureau." And
the "bureau" smiles at the success of his
game and devoutly thanks God that "a
sucker is born every minute." St. Paul

The bill is lengthy, its main provisions
being that the declaration to become a

J: H. Drinnin says that the condi
tion of winter wheat baffles the amateur.
On the 12th and 13th of August the
ground got thoroughly soaked with rain,
and all ground that was plowed and har
rowed for about ten days after, made a
good seed-bed for the wheat, but that
which was plowed later never did make
a good seed-bed, because it would not
pulverize. The consequence was the
seed planted in the former, came up in a
few days and made t good stand, while
the seed that was planted on the late
plowing never did all come up from
among the dry lumps, and although the
soil got u good wetting on the 8th and
9th of December, we cannot see more
than half a stand on the late plowing yet,
and what the result will be in the spring
can only be told by a professor. There
is one thing sure, about half the wheat
sown is a good stand and will make a

in this city, is the originator of the cur
few law iu this country; he is president
of the Boys and Girls' National Home
and Employment Agency, and is now in
Chicago working in the interest of the
law. He says: "Apart from its senti
mental feature, the curfew law helps the
cities in which it is in forco from a mon
etary point of view. It costB nothing to
enforce the law, which provides for the
ringing of the curfew at 8 o'clock in the

Children under fifteen, with the excep

400 towns in tho United States. It is a
law in many of the large western cities
and an eastern organization will begin
soon to agitate the matter in that part
of the country. I have letters from the
officials of some of the cities where the
law is in force, showing that crime among
the youth of the population has decreas

effect. To keep the children off the
streets has aleo a tendency to reduce
