The following from the versatile
pen of Bixby. in Monday's State
Journal is both trite and timely.
"Blessings on thee," little scrub,
Barefoot boy we call you "Bub"
Getting iuto shape once more
For red ankles, chapped and sore;
Splashing around to see the gush
Twist your toes of mud and slush.
Pat your shoes on, little man,
Just as quickly aa you cen;
Then run home, you little tike,
Or you'll have the oroup, sure, Mike.
An unique state of affairs is on at
Cody, Wyoming, where nine of every
male inhabitants of the city are under
indictment for gambling. The mini
mum fine that can be imposed is $300
each should they be so unfortunate
as to be convicted, but it is stated that
it will be impossible to secure juries
without accepting men who are under
indictment for the same offense, conse
quently the trial by jury would be a
farce. The crusade against gambling
was started to secure money to buiid
bridges which were washed out by
Colambus readers will be interested
in Bixby's summing up 'f the recent
city election and many will agree with
him: "With its usual seriousness the
Telegram attributes the recent dem
ocratic victory in the Columbus mu
nicipal election to the devotion of the
resident taxpayers or a large majority
to Jefiersonian principles. Nothing
of the kind. Municipal elections in
this state are seldom fought out along
partisan political lines. The truth of
the matter is that the tendency of Col
umbus is to the side of large lustrous
personal liberty. It is the sentiment
that the man who wants to get gay
and be happy until the roosters crow,
should not be restricted by ordinance
or the ukase of an executive officer.
Last year Columbus had a republi
can mayor who manifested a disposition
to screw down the lid. Saloons were
required to stay closed on Sunday, and
the closing order included the back
and side doors and entrance by way
of the basement or through the roofs.
The beer for the "picnic" had to be
set out on Saturday night, and the
warm air of all out doors made it in
sipid and unsatisfactory.
Naturally there was a reaction, and
it became mightily manifest this spring
when all the saloon influences lined up
with their well-known political ally
for a change of administration. This
is the truth of the matter, and truth
in the concrete is the ideal toward
which really conscientious journalism
seesBsto be setting.

This is the time of year when
every public spirited citizen and mer
chant has his spring house cleaning.
Is your front yard full of sticks and
leaves and newspapers? Clean up.
Is your backyard Ijttered with old
boxes, papers, straps, wheels or other
rubbish? Clean up. Is your alleX
the dumping ground for the year's
supply of tin cans, old pails, broken
dishes and other trash? Clean up.
Columbus has no regular city im
provement society, but it should have.
Every man and woman, every boy
and girl, should take it upon himself
to do what he can to beautify his own
doorstep. Clean away all the un
necessary stuff, and then beautify.
Cover unsightly spots with vines,
morning glories are not rare. Make
Columbus a clean beautiful city, from
Franklin Park to the backyard.
Some striking phrases in President
Roosevelt's attack on reformers with
the "Muck-rake," follow: ' '
In' addition to honesty, we need
The soul of every scoundrel is glad

We should discriminate in the sharp
est way between fortunes well won and
fortunes ill won.
Some persons are sincerely incapa
ble of understanding that to denounce
mud slinging does not mean the in
dorsement of whitewashing.
The fool who has not sense enough
to discriminate between what is
good and what is bad is well nigh as
dangerous as the man who does dis
criminate and yet chooses the bad.
The effort to make financial or po
litical profit out of the destruction of
character can only result inpublic ca

mercial Club resolutions were passed
in regard to the Union Pacific rail
road company, which refuses to pay
the tax for 1904 and 1905, also has
refused to lay walks on the railroad

The Progress of Temperance.
Some progress has already been made
in my boyhood to say the ravages of in
temperance. Alcoholic liquors no long
er served by farmers to their laborers
in the haying fields, by chiirchos to at
tending minister at ordinances. But
in spite of the Washingtonian movement
intemperance was common and respect
able. Mr. Whittier told me that in his
boyhood liquor was sold at all the dry-
goods stores, and that practically all the
farms in the neighborhood of his home
were mortgaged to pay the liqnor bills.
I think within my memory all liquor
selling has been confined to specially
licensed liquor saloons.
But if drinking in social circles was
less common than now, drunkenness
was both a more frequent vice and one
less reprehended'. I am told by college
men that today drunkenness is not
"good form." It was' not bad form in
the colleges in 1850. I think those in
my class who had never been drunk
and they were perhaps half the class-
were looked upon by the others some
what aa a tenderfoot is supposed to be
looked on in the pioneer settlements of
the west, and I think we somehow had
a sneaking feeling that we lacked a
chapter of human experience which a
manly man rather ought to have had
once. New Year's Day in New York
City was specially devoted to Eocial call
ing by the gentleman on the ladies of
their acquaintance; and the ladies fur
nished refreshments, which in a great
majority of cases included wine. In the
late afternoon and throughout the even
ing one who was upon the streets was
sure to meet well-dressed' gentlemen
decidedly the worse for liquor, and
sometimes one met them in ihe parlor

Hall Caine's beauiiful and interest

Manxman, comes to the Opera House,
Friday April 20th. The book has
proven one of the most popular of his
many successes and has been read by
countless millions who are anxious to

closely the scenes and situations in the
book which are natural and entirely
devoid of stagey effect. Most persons
are familiar with his Eternal City and
The Christian both of which have made
a tremendous bit throughout the east.

On Tuesday William Bacon who was
engaged in sinking a tubular well on
M. E. Clother's farm, two miles north of
town, struck a gusher at the depth of
one hundred and ten feet. The flow
was strong enough to force water
through a two-inch pipe twelve feet
above the surface. The well is located
on the west side of the road and but a
few feet from the dry creek on the north
edge of the farm, which affords a fine
means for taking care of the water.
The water is clear as a crystal and the
flow seems to be increasing. This is
the first flowing well struck in this im
mediate neighborhood. There are plenty
of them up Shell creek valley bnt none
nearer than Beven miles.
Last Saturday Ed. Higgins received
an agreeable surprise in the shape of a
visit from Mr. Patrick God.-il of Gales
burg, III. They were boys together in
Ireland and had not seen each other in
thirty-eight years, since Mr. Godsil left
the old sod for America, Ed. coming
three years later. Three years ago Mr.
Godsil paid a visit to his native land
and there learned where Ed. was locat
ed, and, accompanied by bis wife, he
came out here to pay his friend of his
youth a visit. And a fine visit they had,
too. Ed. says it was almost as good to
him as a visit in person to the old home.
They left for home Wednesday, Mr.
Higgins accompanying them to Colum
bus. Twelve Hovels for $150,000.

A letter reached this office last Fri
day, too late for publication last week,
announcing the marriage of MisB Anna
M. Johnson, daughter of Mr and Mrs.
George Johnson, east of St. Edward, to
Mr. Percy A. Barnes of Grand Island.
The marriage ceremony was performed
by Judge Ratterman at Columbus, Mon
