The president's message is as long as any thai
Cleveland ever wrote , who , until Monday , held
the belt for long messages. But the dilfe ence
is that McKinley had something important to
say and said it. Ord Qui/ .
Will the Quiz please tell what it was ?
The Ord Quiz frankly admits that it
doesn't Know what the administration's
"open door" policy means , but it says
editorially that it'is in favor of it , any
how. IIow easy it is to run a republi
can newspaper !
A man who took a city paper be
cause he could get more reading matter
than in. his home paper , read an adver
tisement of a pocket fire escape. He
sent a dollar and in a few days re
ceived a New Testament.
"I am not much of a mathematician , ' '
said the cigarette , "but I can add to a
man's nervous troubles , I can subtract
from his physical enerpy , I can multi
ply his aches and pains , I can divide
his mental powers , I can take interest
from his work and discount his chances
of success. "
We would be pleased to remember our friends
in our praters if they would bring us in borne
dry wood. We have been sorely taxed these
cold mornings in trying to start our fires with
out any kmtliiiiK wood. Bassett Eagle.
We believe the man who doesn't
bring the wood needs more prayers
than he who does.
Presuming that all our readers have read the
president's message , we will not attempt to re
view it. The message Is just what people ex
pected. Through the entire document of 20,000
words , there runs the spirit which says "I am
the people's servant and suUjsct to the people's
will. Kock County Leader.
And so he is , but we notice that he
pays very little attention to orders.
The so-called "reform press" was subsidized
by the national democratic committee this year ,
and now a move is on foot to turn the whole
thing over to the democrats. The scheme is to
control all the populist reading matter , and
make the consolidation of the fusion forces
under the name of "democratic1'an easy matter.
The Tribune is the 18th republican
paper on our exchange list which has
published an item like that. The
"yallar legs" ' are very solicitous for the
Avelfare of the populibt party.
Newspaper men frequently have
their attention called to the typograph
ical errors which sometimes creep into
their publications. If newspaper men
only understood their business these
errors would not happen. The people
who discover the errors can tell you
that much. In an ordinary column
there are about 12,000 pieces of type.
An average county newspaper sets from
seven to ten columns per week , which
makes 1 0,000 pieces to be picked up ,
right about faced and stood up with
caiv. These in turn must be replaced
in the case , which necessitates the hand
ling of 240,000 pieces of type each
week. Now if in the lirst place the
editor gets correct information and if
he writes it properly and if the com
positor sets it up right , as he should ,
and if the galley boy knows enough to
take a decent proof and if the copy
holder is sober and if the proof-reader
marks the errors and if the printer cor
rects them and if the make-up man
gets the type in the right place and if
the press doesn't mash a few letters ,
why , it can be easily seen how wholly
unnecessary are the typographical
errors. It is as easy as rollin' off a log
to run newspapers. Hampton ( Iowa )
Iii a plain talk to his readers the
editor of the Nebraska Independent
said last week :
If there are men who have sometimes
voted the populist ticket who think
that the party ought to be governed by
the minority , they have a perfect right
to their opinions. If they think that a
party can be run in that way , this is a
free country , and they should immedi
ately organize a party based upon that
principle. If they think that when
four parties unite upon one ticket and
cannot elect all of that by their joint
votes , that if they would only keep up
separate organizations and all vote
different tickets that one of them could
succeed much better against a united
foe , they have a perfect right to their
opinions. If , when they look at the
election returns of the last presidential
election and see that practical ! } ' every
vote in the United States was polled ,
and may be several more , if then they
come to the conclusion that if one of *
the three parties that cast their votes
for Bryan had cast as many of them as
they could for some other man , Mark
Ilanna and the money power would I
have received a deathly blow , thev
have a perfect right to think so.
If any man believes that if the popu
list party of Nebraska should refuse to
co-operate with the other reform par
ties , and nominate a straight middle-of-
the-road ticket , that it could therebv
induce some 45,000 republicans or dem
ocrats to forsake their parties and vote
for the middlo-of-the-road candidate.he
has a right to so believe and to advo
cate that belief in
anv honorable way.
But the man who so believes has no
moral right to charge the men who do
not believe such a thing is possible with
While this writer has been an active ,
Dghter in every anti-monopoly , anti-

like to know how any reform can be

It is not probable that an American
live stock exhibit will be held during
the Paris Exposition of 1000 , as there is
great difficulty in getting cattle- over
there , and still greater difficulty in get
ting them away. The Department of
Agriculture has , about given up the
idea of having a display of fine stock ,
except horses ' , owing to the stringent
inspection 'law of France and the dan
ger of contracting disease.

A good debcripiion of ( . 'heiry county
is given in the following , which ap
peared in the South Omaha Daily
Stockman last Thursday :
.J. E. Nye of the range lirm of N"\e & Bachelor

ness. This lirm has been engaged in the block-
raising business for several years' in that section
and have now on hand upwards of 1-Juo cattle of
all grades \\hich they are wintering. The .sand
hills country is fully as well supplied this year
as formerly , in fact I\Fr. \ Nye tliinKs there arc
rather more cattle feeding there this winter
than iihiial and the mnge is pretty well crowded.
They provide feud for their .stock there during
the winter , and most of the owners have plenty
on hand , but a few will likely be a little short on
feed It the winter should prove to bt > long and
unusually cold. They experienced ; i pretty
cold wave \\eck or .so ago , but there was no

graze on the i pen range in many places , and as
a rule , they arc in good condition. They have
Lut few sheep in that section , and there is little
attempt at funning t the * present time.although
a lew years ajro there were a good many .settlers
in that section. Along the rivers and .streams
\\here irrigation is possible the finest crops are
raised , but on the uplands it has been demon
strated that agriculture is practically a tailure.
and a great part of the land lias gone back to
the primeval state and is now used only for
grazing purposes. They raiie plenty of hay in
that country each year to fully supply the stock
with necessary food during the \\mt ; r if the
