love to lucre flies, who think that gold to silver should count as
mutual prize! But I'm not avaricious, and you'ro not sordid souled;
I have too much of silver, and you've too much of gold. Upon our
heads the reason too plainly can bo seen; I am the winter's bond
slave, you are the summer's queen; too few the years you number,
too many I have told; I have too much of silver; and you've too
much of gold. You have the rose for token, I have dry leaf and
rime; I have the sobbing vesper; you, morning bells at chime. I
would that I were younger, (yet you grow never .old) would I had
less of silver, but you no less of gold.

Lincoln, Ned., Saturday, May 19, 1894.
For a good many years tbo candidates for governor in this state
hare been politicians not that many good men have not aspired to
that honor. But in a number of instances the men whose claims
have been pressed tbo hardest have had little to commend them
except a certain prominence or activity in politics. Hence it is that
the candidacy of I. M. Raymond, of this city, meets with decided
approval among business men, Mr. Raymond has the best kind of
a record as a republican and a business man, and there are gratify
ing indications of a lively interest in his candidacy all over the state.
He will have enthusiastic support in his own county.
Commenting on our reference to the attitude of the World
Herald and Congressmen Byran toward the two republican candi
dates for congress in this district, Allen W. Field and Church Howe,
the World Herald on Monday gave additional evidence of the fact
that it fears for Mr. Bryan's sake, that Field will be renominated.
The Omaha newspaper in discussing the affairs of this congressional
district displays an ingenuity that does credit to its reputation for
cleverness; but few republicans, we imagine, will be deceived by the
somewhat transparent showing made. Mr. Bryan and his friends do
not want to see Field nominated and their efforts to point out for the
benefit of the republicans, other men who are stronger, appeal to the
sense of humor of observant persons. Such solicitude nn the part of
the democrats, such fear that their opponents may not nominate
Howe or some other "strong' candidate in place of Field, such friendly
concern for republican wellfare, aro pleasing to contemplate; but
reiterating a former statement we have only to say that while appreci
ating the expressions of kindly interest that came from the demo
crats, the republicans of the first district nevertheless feel that they
are competent to attend to the business in hand without outside
assistance,and entertaining the friendliest feeling for their opponents,
they are yet disposed to make the nomination to suit themselves
and not the democrats. The judgment of republicans who are able
to consider all the conditions that obtain in this district, in a
fair and logical spirit, is that Judge Field is by all odds the strongest
man in the district, and the fact that the democrats are exerting
themselves to the utmost to discourage Field sentiment'ought to be
conclusive with republicans who desire, to nouiiuatu a man who will
win. As an organizer and campaigner Field has no superior, and in
the matter of qualifications for the office of congressmu'a he is pro
minently deserving of a nomination. j
SILVER AND GOLD,
Farewell, my little sweetheart, now fare you well and free; I claim
from you no promise, you cjaira no vows from me. The reason why
the reason right well we can uphold, I have too much of silver,
and you've too much of gold. A puzzle this, to worldings, whose
Should I awake some frosty morn and find
A spectre standing by my bed in white,
I would not think that I had lo3t my mind, . -Nor
close my eyes again in speechless fright.
Should it recall the evil I had done,
And say my soul for torments must prepare,
Or other horrid things to frighten me, '
As I am out of work I wouldn't care. . "
If such a ghostly thing should come some day,
To startle me ere I arose from bed,
The only thing would bo for it to say
"I've got a job for you," and I'd drop dead.

BEYOND THE LINE.
The New York man, accustomed to Del's and its graces, dropped
into a restaurant in one of the interior towns
"I say, he said to the waiter, "bring me a small hot bird and a
large cold bottle."
"Which?' asked the waiter with a start.
The order was repeated.
"That's all right,' responded the waiter, as if he had been insulted,
"but what you'll git here, more likely, is a large cold bird and a
small hot bottle," and he brought in a large hunk of yesterday's old
hen and a bottle of beer that had been sitting in a sunny window
for a sign.
It was about 10:30 p. m. and the young woman was talking to the
man in the case.
"What I like in a man, she was saying, "is energy; ono who has
some go in him."
The young man glanced hastily at the clock, then at the door,
then at the girl, and got up.
"I beg your pardon,' she said, blushing; "you may stay as long as
you please. You are the tirst man that ever understood that state
A SIGN OF FAVOR.
Small Boy My sister likes you.
Young Man (calling) That's very nice. I like her too, very much.
Small Boy Yes, she said she liked you because you never came
often and didn't stay long.
HOOD'S AND ONLY HOOD'S
Are you weak and weary, overworked and tired? Hood's Sarsa
parilla is just the medicine you need to purify and quicken your
blood and to give you appetite and strength. If you decide to take
Hood's Sarsaparilla do not be induced to buy any other. Any effort
to substitute another remedy is proof of the merits of Hood's.
