The statement is made that a angle
transatlantic liner recently sailed Cor
Europe carrying money orders aggregat

gifts sent abroad by people of the United
States to friends in the old countries.
The seizure of barrels containing 500
quails by the state game warden at
Fremont recently is creating considera
ble interest as to the outcome. The
birds were sent by express from the
western part of the state marked
"Christmas Roods," and consigned to
parties in Chicago. The fines it collect
ed according to law would amount to
several thousand dollars.
The soft corn district is a rather in
definite term, nor can we describe that
district exactly on the map says Wallace's
Farmer. It covers the entire state of
Iowa, the corresponding latitudes in
Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, the Da
kotas, and northern Nebraska. There
are spots in this district, however, where
there is very little soft corn, and others
often not far distant where there is not
much sound corn. The frost of Septem
ber 13th and 14th was a very fickle jade
and struck hard in some townships and
skipped the adjoining ones, hit one
farmer hard and let his neighbor go free.
There is no accounting for the taste of a
Monday's Omaha World-Herald says:
"So far nothing of a definite nature
looking to a settlement has been heard
by the strikers the last word being
that President Burt will return home
the last part of this week, and his reply
to the ultimatum of John McNeil that
the Southern Pacific boilermakers would
be called out unless a settlement is
effected, will become known. It being
at his request that action along that
line be postponed until his return, the
strikers look for overtures of a settle
ment. But in the meantime, not a bit
of their vigilance is being relaxed, and
preparations are going ahead with them
as if the strike were to last indefinitely."
The U. S. Civil Service Commission
reports that for the year ending June
30, 1902, there were 1483 persons ap
pointed from its registers. There were
4,692 more than was ever before appoint
ed in a single year. Anyone wishing
information about these positions can
secure it free by writing for the Civil
Service announcement of the Columbian
Correspondence College, Washington, D.
C The Commission will hold examina
tions to secure young men and women
for these places during March and April,
at Beatrice, Grand Island and Omaha.
Many people do not know that these
appointments are made without political
influence and that a large share of them
are filled by those having only a common
school education, but such is now the
The Farmers' Co-operative Grain and
Live Stock association is to be the foun
dation of a new association to be known
as the Farmers' Cooperative Shipping
association, which will have a capital of
$200,000 and which intends to own and
control a line of grain elevators in Kan
sas, Nebraska and Oklahoma. A meet
ing will be held at Lincoln, Nek, Janu
ary 22, for the purpose of advancing the
movement in Nebraska. The farmers'
graia association at Benedict, Neb., the
association at Thayer, Nebt, and at
Shelby, Neb., have signified their inten
tion of taking stock in the new associa
tion and they will be the basis of the
movement in this state. The association
expects to start with thirty elevators in

The supreme court of Nebraska has
handed down a decision in the case of
Harriet Eaton against Eli Eaton, decid
ing that a marriage of a divorced person
within six months after the decree is
entered is in direct violation of the law
aad that a marriage so contracted is
invalid. The case came from Cass coun
ty, where Mrs. Eaton was married ahort
lyafterhavingbeendivorced. Mr. Eaton
soon afterward sought to annul the mar
riage aad went into the courts to pre
Teat his property going to his wife. The
aapreme court holds that the full six
BBoaths given by Nebraska law for either
party to a divorce suit to appeal must
lapse before either may legally marry.
It also holds, however, that where they
have lived together illegally, if the rela
tioa continues after the six months have
expired, the marriage will be binding
aader the common law.

THE MONROE DOCTRINE.
Just now England and Germany, two
of. the most powerful nations on earth,
are engaged in a tussle with the little
republic of Venezeula to the south of us
in which the Monroe doctrine is likely
to play an important part before ques
tions at iataeare settled. It might be
wall for all Americans to acquaint them
selves with that doctrine which follows:
"We owe it, therefore, to candor and
to the amicable relations existing be
tween the United States and those pow
ers (any European power) to declare that
wa should consider any attempt on their
part to extend their system to any por
tion of this hemisphere as dangerous to
oar peace and safety. With the existing
colonies or dependencies of any Euro
pean power we have not interfered and
shall not interfere. But with the gov
ernments who have declared their inde
pendence and maintained it, and whose
independence we have no great consid
eration and on just principles acknowl
edged, we could not view any interposi
tion for the purpose of oppressing them
or controlling in any other manner their
destiny by any European power in any
other light than as the manifestation of
an unfriendly disposition toward the
United States." From the Message to
Congress of President Monroe, on De
cember 2, 1823.
There will be universal interest in a
paper written by Carl Snyder for Har
per's Monthly for November. Mr. Sny
der professes to believe that some day
science will be able to make youth ever
lasting. That is to say, the day is com
ing when everybody will be young and
healthy and happy, when death and sick
ness will be known no more on this earth.
And he doesn't refer to the millennium
or to any other possible upheaval. Mr.
Snyder has reasoned it all out and while
he is not now ready to recommend any
process, the faith that is in him seems
"What we call growing old," he says,
"seems merely a series of destructive
fermentations. It is probable that these
are present from the beginning that
throughout all Ufa there is a struggle, so
to speak, between the two; that, in some
sense, as Professor Loeb once remarked,
death is a physical agent, the material
antithesis of Ufa
"If the action of malt enzyme upon
starch is reversible, so is that of the fer
ments which convert the active tissue,
the living protopiasm, into the relatively
dead fatty or connective or cartilage or
bone tissue the characteristic, as the
great Russian biologist, Metchnikoff, has
shown, of advancing years. As the dis
covery of the constructive ferments gave
at least a clue to a complete account of
the whole life process, so to those who
have closely and reflectively followed the
development of biochemistry the dis
covery of reversibility in fermentation
may in time disclose the reversibility of
the life process; the more concrete phase,
the arrest of death, the prevention of old
age, the preservation of youth."
This is pretty deep and rather incom
prehensible to most of us, but the pic
ture is none the less alluring. Sane peo
ple may talk about their willingness to
die, but when it comes to the final test
most of them would favor delay. Pend
ing the discovery of a perpetual injunc
tion against fermentation, it is well
enough to keep the field well cultivated
up that the Great Reaper may not
encounter too many cockles.
The Omaha World-Herald remarks
that "the proposed Rosewater electric
franchise was the torch which ignited
the pyrothechnics at the meeting of the
city council, Tuesday evening. In a
glare of red fire all three of the ordi
nances that have been introduced on this
abject were reported for indefinite post
ponement, then recommended to be
placed on file, and finally given again
into the keeping of the judiciary com
mittee, while a fourth ordinance was
introduced and steered past first and
second readings." The letter from Mr.
Babcock of Columbus to the council
gave them a statement of the condition
of the Nebraska Central Irrigation Co,
and asked that an opportunity might be
given to present any information that
may be desired relative to the merits of
the power and to show that they have
been acting conservatively and on busi
ness principles. Mr. Babcock stated
that the company have an authorized
capital of $1,000,000 and a paid-up capi
tal of $375,000; that the canal with its
laterals is 71.01 miles in length; that by
virtue of the filings and applications
during the last seven years for the waters
of the Loup river, and the actual con
struction and appropriation, "the said
company now control the flow of the
waters of the Loup river"; that a con
tract was entered into with the United
Engineering Co. of New York, who made
a technical report on power development
that 18,000 electrical horse-power can be
delivered net, to the city of Omaha
worth S25 per horse power. The city
council of Omaha will meet this (Tues
day) evening, when the case will again
come up for consideration.

Da. Ebbtit of Grand Island, who by
appointment of the government acted as
inspector in Ireland in 1882 and 1883 for
dinnssfw of animals, gives an account in
the Nebraska 'Farmer of the Foot and
Mouth disease which has gained a foot
hold in the eastern part of America. Dr.
Ebbitt says he does not believe it will
come west but as it "runs like wildfire"
it is possible that it might. We clip the
following from the article that may be of
benefit to Journal readers: The period
of incubation, which is the time from the
reception of the germ into the system
until symptoms of the disease begin to
show, is a short one, ranging from one to
three days. The first thing noticed is
the animal tries to get apart from the
herd and moves with a degree of stiff
ness, the temperature is increased and
saliva begins to dribble from the mouth.
The lips are continually moving, and a
peculiar champing or smacking sound is
made by them and the teeth. Blisters
begin to form in the mouth on the
tongue, between the hoofs and around
between the hair and hoof. It must be
remembered that this is nature getting
rid of the poison of the diooaoo, and the
less interference we give to it the better.
After a few days the blisters break, a
new skin is formed and the animal
begins to get better."
