statements nro as exaggerated as they

JAY GOULD has coma out as n great

' LINCOLN hints that congress
gross can skip the annual river and

an unexpended surplus of ever

national expenditures , which migh
do good service in the next campaign. .

Jlr.ronTH from various points
throughout the s tate indicate general
prosperity among Nebraska farmora
the result of heavy crops and im
proved methods of farming. If our
state exchanges are any index of the
condition of our towns and villages ,
business is picking up wonderfully
after the dullness which has marked
the fall trade , and cold Tcuther is
assuring merchants of a rapid and
constant increase of sales. The move
ment of crops eastward is not heavy ,
but the very fact that our farmers are
able to hold their grain and
corn ia a cheering sign that debts
are pressing loss heavily upon
them than formerly. There are indi
cations that inoro cattle and hogn will
bo fed this year than ever before in
the state. Last year corn was in auoh
demand that the prospect of quick re
turnn and good pricuu overbalanced
all other coucidorationa and loss than
usual of corn on the hoof fouud its
way from our nt.ito to the caatern
markets. "Our farmura are now beginning
ginning to BOO their mistake and to
understand that the greatest profit is
alwnya to be found in condensed pro
ducts , Railroad rates enter BO large
ly into the prices of all articlca which
must bo shipped n long distance from
producer to consumer that a dccrcaoo
in rates always means an incroaeo in
profits. TUB BEB has for years
preached the gospel of condensation
in food products to Nebraska farmers.
It is a gospel of plenty and for that
reason is gaining uoty converts after
each annual crop.
NEBKABKA , according to the November
vombor report of the agricultural
bureau , produced thin year 81,000,000
bushels of corn. This ia a larger crop
than that of the Now England and
Middle states combined. The entire
orop in the United Btatoa during the
past aocuon ia estimated at about
1,050,000,000 bushels , which Is moro
than thirty and a half bushels for
each person composing our population
of llfty-four millions. This return ia
moro remarkable from the fact
that planting was later and
replanting moro general than
for Bovoral preceding years. Up
to the first of July the prospect was
discouraging , but siuou that time the
season has boon steadily favorable to
growth and ripening ,
The crop is distributed as follows :

A zealous Ilopublican writes to us
objecting to the declaration that those
who parted company tvith the mail
body In the recent election are just as
true re publicans as those who accepted
the regular banner.
But , taking the rank and file
isn't it true ? Can wo as pru
dent republicans , who want to
restore the party , safely act upon any
other theory ? Can wo wisely rule
out all the republicans who refused to
vote.for the regular ticket ? Can wo
ostracize the two hundred thousanc
republicans in Now York who either
voted for Cleveland or staid at homo
Can wo decline all fellowship witl
the fifty thousand republicans in this
state who voted for Stewart , or thi
tens of thousands of others who votoi
for Pattison 1 If so , how are wo go
ing to make our party a majority
again ?
Wo may think that the cause o
these republicans was all wrong ; wo
may fool that they were not war
ranted oven from their own eland
point ; but that doesn't alter the fac
that wo need their votes. There are
two paths open before us Wo can
como together on a fair and honor
able basis of union whioh shall recoq
nizo all republicans 03 standing on an
equal footing , and thus become once
moro a victorious party ; or wo can
declare war against all who have differed
forod with us in this campaign , and sego
go on from defeat to defeat ! Can
there bo any doubt as to the policy
which sensible men will urge nnd sus
tain ?
In a cooler moment our friend wil
not allow his fooling to prevail eve
his judgment , Wo want the republican ,
party to recover Un ascendancy ; so
does ho , The rational way is to take
the facts as wo find them , and make
the best of them. Taking the country

THE POSSIBLE SPEAKER.
A Parsonnl Sketch of Cousroasman
Carlisle.
Louttvl'lo ' ( Ky. ) Commercial , Nov. H.
"John G. Carlisle is ono of the
grcatect men in the country , " said
prominent Kentucky politician last
nicht , "I have known ham since ho
was a boy , nnd have watched his course
with a great deal of interest. The
first time I mot him ho was a country
boy on a farm just back of Covingtoo.
Ho was a pftlo , otudlous boy , working
hard all day on the farm and studying
and reading by night. I visited his
family several times and always
found John * sitting ell' in ono
corner with a big book in his
hand. He'was a quiet kind of a fol
low , speaking only when spoken to.
Wh on ho was only about 17 years olc
ho started to teach school. He was
rather shy at first , but in a few weeks
his scholars all adored him. He
taught in a little out-of-the-way schoolhouse -
house , and the story goes that ho fell
desperately in love with a young lady
who lived in Covington , and was oul
near where he taught visiting rela
tives. I don't know why or how his
courting ended , but the lady in ques
tion is now the mother of four chil
dren , and is a very fat , prosy-looking
married woman. She lives within a
stone's throw of Carlisle , at Coving-
ton , I wai practicing latr in the Cor-
ington djstrict , a' d onn f my fri > .
WAS tolling that younc ; Carlisle was
going to make a speech in the cpur
house that day on oomo land titlo.
Both of us ware friends of his family
and wo took considerable interest ir
him. Wo determined to go to hear
him mske his maiden speech.
"Tho ojso was of a hard , dry
knotty character , full of legal subtil-
ty , and I thought to myself : 'Johnny ,
old boy , yon'ra in for a failure to
day,1 There was hardly any one in
the court room except lawyers , and ,
considering the cose and thoaudlence ,
it must have boon a most trying
maiden effort. I can eeo Oarllblo now
as ho stood up in the court room with
a copy of the llevisod Statutes in his
his hand. He had that same weary ,
studious look in his eyes , that same
cold , pagsionlces expression on his pale
face that ho h 8 to-day. Without the
Icait degree of nervousness , in a plain ,
calm , quiet way , ho began his speech.
You could ceo that ho had mastered
every detail , and the lawyers , aa they
grew moro and moro interested ,
moved their bodies forward and
hung on his words , I have
no hesitation in saying that it
\vas the best imeech of tho. kind , ever
nacio In Iho Oovinybti eoUCl house.
Without telling nn niicCdoto or crick-
ng a joke there was something so
winning in his Voice and in his man-
lors that thd interest never flagged.
When ho had finished the lawycara all
crowded around him , the jndgo shook
ft lim warmly by the hand and Tom
Tones , who happened to bo in the
court room , told him ho had a great
'utnro before him. From that day
lia fortune was made. Practice
I poured in on him , nnd in two years ho
tvas doing moro business than any
lawyer I in that judicial district. I
Siavo hoard him many times since
then , and ho has never changed his
I
style or hia manner. Ho has a re
markably sweet volcn , and whllo I
never hoard him tcllnn anecdote , pri
vately or publicly , there is something
about the man thnt ia inexpressibly
winning. Ho made an argument bo-
fora the court of appeals in a murder
case a few yearn ago and spoke tor
nearly two houra. When ho concluded
Judge Gofer naked the other judges to
adjourn for the day. When asked by
ono of the lawyers who had a caeo
sot for that day why ho adjourned
court after Carlisle's speech , the old
judge answered crisply : 'I listed to
hoar n good thing spoiled , as would bo
the case if any other man had follow
ed him. '
"Carlisle * ! ! wife has a wonderful in
fluence ever him , and it waa due to
her that ho did not go the way of too
many young politicians who como to
Frankfort and got a taste of the liquor
that is sold there. "
