of campaign buncombe.
Ex-Senator W. V. Allen, during his
editorial career, has planned an asso
ciation of the pen pushers for purposes
strictly political. It will be the duty
of the members to scatter broadcast
the doctrines of populism. Primarily,
country editors are the only ones In
cluded, men who still look upon a news
paper aB strictly a political institution.
Fifteen proprietors of country papers,
including ex-Senator Allen, have re
newed their allegiance to the cause of
the party by joining the association.
The republican state committee con
vened, counselled In harmony and ad
journed after voting that Lincoln
should be the next place for assembling
the state nominating convention and
1 that the date should be June 18th.
There was little difference of opinion
concerning the date, every member
- favoring a comparatively early con
vention. Neither state officials nor
those recognized as close to them sug
gested any time later than July 10th.
All forecasts which intimated that
there would be a discussion of state
issues, and particularly of the com-
' mutation of the Bartley sentence, were

heard on this absorbing topic, and the
peace and harmony that prevailed was
gratifying to all participants.

It was the young daughter of an
East side saloon keeper, innocent of
any theories about "Sunday opening,"
but perfectly familiar with the prac
tice. She was in her class in the mis
sion Sunday school and in the course
of the catechism "quiz" the question
came to her.
"Who made the world?"
"God did," was her prompt answer.
"He made the world In six days and
was arrested on the- seventh." New

fortune of a member of the shoe firm
of Herold & Son at Plattsmouth recent

year 1S9S. In his lifetime he was
an eccentric old gentleman and
though he had a big strong safe
he wns In the habit of stor

and corners of the store. Every once
In a while he would collect theso to
gether and turn them over to the bank
for safekeeping. When he died his
books showed that J400 was missing.
The money has remained In darkness
ever since until Just the other day
when some old shelving was being tak

Powder blows things pretty hnnl
sometimes. Not long ago robbers ex
ploded a safe in Nemaha and this Is
what It did to a piece of metal on the
door of the receptacle. It was about a
foot long, two Inches wide and half un
Inch thick. Plunging through the plas

did not stop for a 2x4 studding but cut
two-thirds of It through. Nor did It
stop for an Inch thick hard pine board
farther on. Then it clipped out the top
of a maple tree and. finding nothing
more to conquer. It landed 1C7 yards
from the building.
It always pays to be wise. With this
