The election is a thing of the past and
the active politicians will now settle
back into their nana! lines of work again
after a hard fought although quiet cam
paign. The presidential campaign com
ing next year, made politicians very
zealous in their effort to bring oat
strong sentiment aa to the probable
standing for the next campaign, but in
Platte couaty the vote was very light, aa
compared to 1900. The total vote this
year is 0,247, while in 1899 it was about
84237 and in 1900 it was 34)95. In 1901
the total vote was 3147 and 1902, 272.
Considering that there were several
nominees on the republican ticket in
Platte county who withdrew their names
from the ticket late in the campaign, and
others made very little effort toward
their election, the republicans have every
roason to feel encouraged as compared
with years in the past. There were many
republicans who did not go to the polls
at all, because they considered that there
was little or no hope of electing their
men. The Monroe Looking Glass saya
there were twenty republicans in that
place alone who did not vote, and we
have beard similar remarks from other
localities. If the republicans had worked
for their ticket as tbey should have done,
the majorities in the county woald have
been greatly diminished and it ia not
improbable that some of the candidates
would have been elected.
A comparison of figures is the best of
arguments, and we therefore give a few
in order that our readers may ase that
Platte county has not lost republican
votes but has gained them.
In 99 Hollenbeok reoeived 1,974 votes
in this county and this year 1,796.
Orimison in 99 had 1,777 and this year
Considering that Sallivan has been a
resident of this county since he has
grown to manhood and that be ia an ex
ceedingly popular man, and that many
republicans voted for him, his vote was
not what was expected by his friends
and partisans. His msjority this year is
1,042. In 97 Sullivan had for an oppon
ent Judge Post, his own neighbor, and
that year reoeived a majority of 947 or
only 95 votes less than in this last elec
tion. The Third, his home ward, in 97
gave Sullivan a majority of 13 while this
year he had CC.
Sheriff Byrnes in V9 reoeived l,94fi
votes against Steinbaughe 1,291 and this
year Carrig had 1,079 while Sbarrar got
Judge Uobison in W reoeived 2,112
votes against the republican candidate
Pngsley, who had 1,061. This year Hat
terman carried 1,928, or 194 less than
Itobison. Brock this year had 1,149.
Metr. in 99 reoeived 2,002 votes and
this year 464 leas or 1,538.
In 99 Leavy received 24260 votes and
this year 1,813. In TO Craig had 918
votes and this year Britell 1,192.

Mart of the old settlers of this part of
Nebraska remember Keate-kot-oos, who
was for many years a trader with the
Pawnee Indians and a frequent Colum
bus visitor, and the following bit of his
tory from the Schuyler Free Lance will
be read with interest by them:
"While speaking upon this Indian
subject a little matter of history con
nected with this state and particularly
with the Platte river comes to the mind.
A Mrs. Piatt, who atill lives In Oberliii,
Ohio, and who was one of the first white
persons to be in this section of the coun
try tells about it. In Mny, 1854, the
passage of the Kansas-Nebraska bill by
congress gave this country n little shap
ing and aisiag up. Mrs. Piatt had been
here then a doaeo years, being first
located just across the Missouri river
opposite where Nebraska City now in at
a settlement called Gaston, whioh was
her maiden name. Mrs. Piatt says:
When Mr. Piatt and I went to the
Pawnee mission station by request of the
missionaries of the American board who
were laboring there, to act as teachers
under government, and co-operate with
them in their work, we found no such
word ns Nebraska in the geographical
vocabulary of that section. We wero on
the Great American Desert, in that por
tion known ns the Indian territory, and
through it lazily rolled a broad, shallow
stream, named by the Frenoh traders,
La Platte, and called by the Pawnees,
Keata-kot-oos, (Flat Water). When our
Indian friends wished to give Mr. Piatt
a name, and were told by the whites tbat
bis name aooorded with that of the
Frenchman's river, they called him
Keats-kot oosand the name lives in that
region today. But south of the land
claimed by the Pawnees laid that occu
pied by the Otoes, and towards its east
ern boundary a stream went rolling and
gurgling over its rocky bed with suoh a
sad plaintive tone, it suggested to the
poetical mind of the Indian that the
waters were weeping, and they named
the stream Nebratbka (Weeping Water)
hence the name of our state, Nebraska.
That the sound of 'th is in the original
word, I was assured by the son of n mis
sionary who lived among the Otoes some
years and spoke their language fluently.
But the language of those petty prairie
tribes was not reduced to writing, and
we who labored among them and spoke
their tongue, could sympathize with
Joaquin Miller, who deplored that the
musical E-da-ho (accent on the second
syllable) of his boyhood's love, was
changed by the white man into the dis
cordant I-da-ho (accent on the first syl
lable), when we found thnt the soft
Pawnee (accent on first syllable) was so
spelled and aoeented as to be pronounced
was changed to the long drawn out
O-may-haw, and the charming Ut-tn-wa
coarsened into Ot-ta-way. How can the
mistakes be remedied?' "

with her three young children, and in
brushing coals from the kitchen Btove
her apron caught fire. She was prevent
ed to some extent from extinguishing the
(lames on account of the children, who
rushed to her, nnd in her anxiety to keep
them from catching fire, the flames
spread on her clothing, burning thellesh
from the knees up in n moat frightful
manner. There waa only n small portion
of the body that was not burned almost
to a crisp. The flesh was entirely burned
from tho hands, nnd the hair from the
One of the children ran to a neighbor
and informed her that her mother was
burning up, and by the time she reached
the bouse she found Mrs. Kage entirely
enveloped in flames.
Dr. Voce waa immediately called but
the burns were so severe that little help
could be given the sufferer, and she
psased away about 7 o'clock in the even
ing. She did not lose consciousness
until about 4 o'clock.
Mrs. Kage moved here with her hus
band from Seward two years ago, and
resided in the southeast part of town.
She leaves besides her husband, three
young children, nil daughters, aged
about one, three and "seven,, years. .One
brother, Clarence Heoox, ia a carpenter
in Una city. She was born August 8,
1877, in Harrison county, Ohio, and came
to Seward, Nebraska, with her parents
when five years old? She waa married
February 16, 1896, to U.O. Kage. '
Funeral services were held Saaday
afternoon in theUnited Brethren church,
Rev. Lohr officiating, after which the
remains were laid to rest in the Colum

Do children lie? Yes; constantly,

Kindergarten Magazine. A child does
not tell the truth because he could not.
He does not know the truth, and hia
approximation to the truth Is very
much vaguer than ours. And there are
certain qualities of his mind which
make It Inevitable thnt he should per
vert the truth. In the first place, truth
la synonymous with knowledge. He
does not know what truth Is. In the
second place (and it Is the same with

the truth They have their ideas of
truth. In the third place, the child's
imagination drives him often to tell
