Jon Okxsby and Henry Wilson of
Omaha are organizing a company to
incorporate under the name or ine
nki Goat-Growing company. The
following particulars we clip from the
Omaha Bss: "Only fools ana maws

acres of land near Florence, which we
caa secure for about $30 an acre. It is
not such fine land, but will make good
onciitf. On una we miena u wra
3000 goata as a starter. They will not
be the common, back-alley variety, due
high-grade animals. After a long inves
tigation ws have decided to mix Angora
and Siberian goats. The former have
wonderful coats, but are small. The
East India variety will make up for this,
belay rery large, while their drawback
is the coarse tecture of their hair. Our
revenue will come from selling milk,
hair, fur and manure. We expect also
to be able to develop the least pices of
farming land for market gardening pur

It would seem that it is best, in any
case, to obey the laws of the land.
When men are elected, and it becomes
their duty as servants of the public, to
do their best to enforce the laws they
are sworn to execute, they should con
sider the possible results of the non
enforcement of the law. Take, for
instance, the Carrie Nation episode in
KsnriT The decision of the Kansas
supreme court is that the cities where
she used her hatchet with auch destruc

men and saloon keepers for the damage
done to their property; that because
property is used in violation of law is
no warrant for its destruction by some
unauthorized person.
Judge Baxter, of the criminal 'court
of Douglas county, has held that under
the law the state had no claim on the
interest derived from the permanent
school fund, and, while it is practically
admitted that Meserve got $3,000 from
the one bank in South Omaha, he is
turned loose. It is said that in his four
years' term be got about $00,000 of in
terest, all told, and the state paid for his
bond. Great is reform and great are the
reformers! No wonder that Meserve is
at the head of a bank. Blair Pilot.

On the proposition in the state senate,
to place with Lieutenant Governor Cams
the naming of the committees, Senator
Turner expressed -the -following senti
ments:' It is the correct rule for a leg
islator to determine each question before
him upon its merits. The committees
of the senate are its organs, because it is
through these or by these that' the legis
lative functions, are exercised.1 Consid
ered ss an entirety, the committees
should be of like mind with the senate.
It might veiy readily happen that the
lieutenant governor would not represent
the will of the senate, but the contrary.
Why should he name the committees
the most important act in the organiza
tion of the senate? It is not a question
of mere personal like or dislike for him
whom the constitution makes the pre
siding officer, but it is s question whether
the senate should abrogate an inherent
right, and establish or continue a bad
precedent The principle is the same no
matter who occupies the chair."

Once, when Joining a shooting party

pened to see a. magpie fly right over his
head. Turning round to the Duke of
Cambridge, who was with the party,
his majesty said: "I have Just seen a
magpie. Now, I'm not a particularly
superstitious kind of a man, but I don't
like to tumble across these wretched
birds, I don't, Indeed."
The duke laughed and said cheerful
ly: "Does your majesty know our old
saying concerning the superstition
about magpies? One for sorrow, two
for mirth, three for a wedding, four for
a birth.' Your majesty must look round
for a second or a third or a fourth mag
pie." "Oh, Indeed!" thoughtfully replied
the kaiser. "A fourth magpie means a
birth, does It? But supposing there Is
a fifth magpie, what then?"
"If you see a fifth magpie," answered
