Attention is called to our fine line of WKITINGr
PAPERS, INYITATION GOODSrCALLING CARDS
and other Stationery demanded by polite society.
THE TASKESS' INSTITUTE.
To the Editor: The proposition
offered in your Tuesday's issue by
Wesley Ikewis in Telation to the
farmers of Lincoln county onran
izing a farmers' agricultural asso
ciation (or if Mr. Lewis will accept
the new name of farmers institute)
is a proposition that should be en
couraged by the citizens of Iorth
Platte in every manner possible.
Having- had the pleasure ot at
tending- several of these institutes
during- the past two years, I think
that for meetings where genuine.
practical information was the ob
ject that these institutes excel any
thing-1 have ever attended.
Western iebraska is commenc
ing to look up and forward to a
better and brighter future. 'Its
present residents and those who
will come to our county need just
sucu an organization enectea as
has been mentioned by Mr. Lewis.
He should have the help and en
couragement of our citizens and
tne press or the county, and a
meeting should be called sometime
in February to effect such an or
ganization. This meeting- should
be solely a farmers' association,
managed and controlled only by
farmers, for if organized in any oth
er wajr it will be a failure and farm
ers will refuse to attend
A meeting of this kind where
there can be an interchang-e of ideas,
of the ways, means, methods and
systems now in use in our county
to successfully grow crops ot every
character, either with or without
irrigation, of feeding cattle or
bogs and other stock, cannot but
-be of great help to the agricultural
interests of this portion of the
state and to North Platte.
By all means Mr. Lewis should
be assisted and his proposition
carried to a successful issue. Mr

to help out the fartnv is -one of our
county farmers. "Who is the next

Pearl buttons, concerning- "the
infamous McKinleyduty of 144 per
cent," on which we heard so much
from our democratic friends prior
to the disastrous elections of 1892
and 1S94, are not perceptibly
cheaper to-day than they then were.
But somebody one Uncle Sam
has lost something: by the "tariff
reform" that dealt with them. In
1892 the income collected as duty
on pearl buttons was $428,048: during-
the first ten months of 1895 it
wes $241,193. In 1893 the foreigner
paid $113,537 as toll tariff for
selling- his manufactures of shell
and mother of pearl in the United
States. During- the first ten
months of the present year he paid
but $26,282. In 1893 McKinley
tariff foreign makers of decorated
earthenware paid $4,022,656 as cus
tom duties; for the first ten months
of this year they paid but $2,291, -
444. The Canadians oaid S164.792
as tariff on eggs in 1893, and only
$78,160 in 1895, and yet eggs are
neither cheaper or better now than
In 1893 the revenue by tariff on
foreign paintings was $313,015. In
1895 it has been $9,069 for the first
ten months. And yet foreign works
of art are not peddled-at a thirtieth
part of their former price. In 1893
the revenue of duties on cotton
laces, edgings, etc., was $7,688,399;
in the first ten months ot 1895 it
