Brogan Reports Nebraska
Has Recovered From Slump
Washington. March 17. (Special
Telegram.) F. A. Brogan of Omaha,
who is in Washington on business
with the Treasury department, call
ing upon Congressman Jefferis to
day, said that the east would never
know how' Nebraska recovered from
the slump of the last year. To him
he said it was wonderful.
"Omaha is coming hack strong,"
sVid Mr. Brogan. "The farmers
through present prices of corn and
livestock are seeing light ahead and
everybody is hailing the new day
with great joy."
THE TALE OF
Johnnie Green's Favorite.
A fe.y ef the farmyard folk were
bit jealous of the Mulry Cow,
The little red lady that stood on one
aide ef Iter in the barn often

many goodies on her. It teemed at
if be never entered the cow barn
without bringing some tidbit for the
old Mutey, as her neighbors called
Should children be allowed to
know that there is grief and pain
in the world, or should they be kept
in happy ignorance of this?
I think it is a mistake to look
upon childhood as the time wlien
prief and pain is unknown. Only go
hack to when you were little, and
had not yet learned the comforts of
books, friendships, religion, ana re
member your keen unreasoning
sorrows, not the less keen that they
were sometimes fleeting. So I
should say that, as children Co
suffer often silently so, intensely,
we should be careful, while they are
of tender age, to tell them only or
happy facts and events excepting
where there is a chance for them to
lessen some one's trouble.
A TEV of the fai-mast-d folk w

her behind her lack. If it wasn't
a potato that Johnnie fished out of
his pocket, it might be an apple or
r. carrot, or maybe a piece of pump
kin. At such times the little red cow
would ca a knowing look at the big
white person on the other side of
the Muley Cow. asif fo say, "There!
He's at it again! Did you ever, in
all your life?" And the big white
cow would twist her head as far
around as her stanchion would lei
her. and stretch her lean neck to the
utmost, hoping for a share of the
treat. She often told the little red
cow. privately, that the delicious
smell of such things as potatoes and
rpples was enough to drive anybody
They bad agreed, long before, that
it was very unpleasant to be stabled
beside Johnnie Green's favorite. That
was what they called the Muley
Cow "the Favorite" (when " they
didn't speak of her as "old Muley").
But when they spoke to her they
were as polite as you please, be
cause she was the oldest cow on the
farm and was an aunt to both of
Whenever Johnnie Green gave
some dainty' morsel to the Muley
Cow, he first pulled out his jack-
Knife and cut rf into medium sized
pieces. There was a good reason
why he did that, as you will learn
Merely feeding goasaV things to her
was not the only way jn which John
nie showed that the Muley Cow was
his-favorite. Next to the choice
mouthfuls that he brought ber, she
liked to have him carry and brush
her, just as he curried and brushed
theancient horse, Ebenezer. Es
pecially in the winter, when she
stood long hours in the barn with
her neck in a stanchion, did the
Muley Cow enjoy Johnnie's atten
tions with currycomb and brush.
In the summer, "when she spent
every day in the pasture, she was
able to lick her back with her long,
rough tongue whenever she pleased;
and sometimes she would even get
some friend to do it for her. But
you may be sure she never sought
such a favor of the little red cow,
nor the big white one, either.'' Natur
ally, they could scarcely have re
fused, had their aunt asked them.
But the Muley Cow knew well
enough that they would make dis
agreeable remarks afterward. So
when she wanted help she usually
turned to some cow whose place in
the barn was a long way from her
own. Somehow her best friends
were those that didn't spend the win
ter near enough to her to notice
whenever Johnnie Green gave her
something good to eat. ,
Really it was not strange that
Johnnie Green petted the Muley
Cow. Farmer Green had given her
