A BUSINESS PROPOSITION. To the Honorable Commissioners of Lincoln County, Nebraska. Gentlemen: Recosrnizinir the fact that there are many people in this count' whom vou are desirous of assisting; in the way of tempor ary relief, and which in the present financial condition of the county you are unable so to do. The Tribune will make you this busi ness and philanthropic proposition: The Tribune will agree to do all the publishing- in its columns of such legal and other notices, including- delinquent tax-list, treas urers' statements, etc., etc., that ma' be required by Lincoln county, Nebraska, for the year 1895, at one third the leg-al rate; the remaining two-thirds of said legal rate to be transferred by 3ou at the close of the year into the count' general fund to be used in replacing what you have expended in relieving the distressed. Such printing as the county may desire will be furnished at the schedule of prices recently filed by this office with the county clerk, which is thought to be as low as is commensurate with good work, good material, and fair living- prices. For the faithful per formance of the above a good and sufficient bond to be approved by you will be furnished. Now. gentlemen, let us see whether you can drop your par tisanship and become patriotic philanthropists: see if you can award a contract to the lowest bid der, as it has been done in times past by even democrats.

P. as far as North Platte. -allawaw Courier. The Dawson County Pioneer thus treats of a matter which may have a local application to Lincoln count" 'If all reports be true some persons in tins countyare drawing relief supplies who are not deserv ing. We have heard of men draw ing aid who .have money on deposit in the banks, and of others doing the same thing who are owners of line large farms which are not at all encumbered. It has been sun gested that it would be the proper thing to publish the names of those who receive aid in order to detect the undeserving. This, we believe, would head them off. We have enough destitute in our county who will need all the assistance at the command qi, the relief committee, and to that class alone should the supplies be given. In the latter class there are said to be men who, notwithstanding their urgent needs, are too high spirited and proud to ask for assistance. They should be sought out and something- done for them. But the dead beats should be sawed off.' Alfalfa is a' curious grass, but a paying one, says an exchange. It is better than a bank account, for it never fails or goes into the hands of a receiver. It is weather proof for the cold does not injure and the heat makes it grow all the better. A winter's Hood will not drown it. and a fire will not kill it. It loves water and bores to reach it. As a borer it is equal to an artesian well. When growing there is no stopping it. Begin cutting a twen ty acre field, and when your last load of hay is handled at one end of the field the Tass is readv to cut at the other end of it. For fill ing a can. an alfalfa fed cow is equal to a handy pump. Cattle love it, hogs fatten upon it. and a hungry horse will want nothing else. Bees will leave all other bloom for alfalfa. If your land will grow alfalfa you will have the drop on dry weather. Once started on your laud' alfalfa will stay with you like Canada thistles or a first-class mortgage, but' only to make you wealthier andi happier.

A young friend sends the follow ing inquiry: 'Frank Sobreka, Dere Sur: As vou seem to know so mutch about things generaly, I want to hav you tell why stealing- is o unpopular. I am twelv yeres old and the best speller in my class. I liked yure artikle on how to make hens lay. Folks do treat there hens skandul lus. Yure's, Johnny Johnson." I take great pleasure in answer ing your letter, Johnny Johnson. Your spelling is all right. I never could spell that way myself, but some boys naturally spell mighty good and I have always liked to have them. But you are mistaken about stealing being unpopular, Johnny. Stealing is wrong, but it is not unpopular. However, older men than you have used the wrong word once and, very often twice in a while. Stealing is. sometimes, very unpopular, and, sometimes, it is popular. It all depends on what, or how much, one steals. I once knew two very promising boys. They were, always willing to prom ise anything. They would promise to go to school and would go fish ing, and when their parents called attention to their wrong doing with a nice leather strap that was warranted to secure the attention of any boy. they would promise not to do it again. These boys gradu ally grew to the stature of men. as you k now boys are addicted to growing. It is a peculiar habit boys have. One of these boys is now serving a ten years' sentence in the asylum established for the unfortunates whose limited oppor tunities prevented them from steal ing enough to tour on. He stole a horse. In fact he had stolen sev eral horses. Let it be said to his credit that he stole all he could. His opportunities were limited. The last horse he stole was worth twenty-live dollars, but he secured in the stealing, ten years board flfi? n'nnl! Er Pi"?

Wo Solicit YoTir Trade, and lodging, which was not such a bad haul as times go. It is. how ever, extremely wrong to steal a horse, a mule or an ass. It is,al&o. unpopular and entitles the one who does it to steady confinement and j support at the public expense for from one to ten years. In Nebras ka, Johnny, you know, it is more unpopular to steal an ass worth five dollars than it is to steal a child. If you should steal a child you could secure not more than seven years' board, but stealing a Mexican burro might prepay your board for ten years. There has been a determination on the part of legislators who have large families to support to make child stealing more popular than mule stealing and at the present time it is less unpopular by three years to steal a $10,000 boy than it is to steal a S10 mule. But that other promising boy. my dear Johnny is a member of congress. He became a lawyer. He stole a right-of-way for a rail road. Then he stole the road-bed, rails, ties, engines, all the rolling stock and the et cetera. This, was all wrong, of course, but it was popular. After he had stolen this much he could steal anything else he wanted, but he was never fool ish enough to steal a horse. He has become very popular. And so you see, Johnny, it is wrong to steal, but it is not altogether un popular. If you ever in the future experience an uncontrollable desire to steal something, don't do it. but, if you do, imitate the fellow who is a congressman. Don't steal a loaf of bread because you are hungry, or a horse because you are tired. Steal a railroad and get a square meal and a four at Mr. Pullman's expense. THE IDEAL YOUNG WOMAN. ANNA M. NEAKY. "Who is my ideal woman.' That is the question I asked myself when I read the invitation in Word and Works of October, 1893. for the readers of that paper to write a paper on "The Ideal Man or Wo man." My first thought was. I do not know her, I cannot write of her. At second thought I said. yes. I do, there are many ideal women in this "Teat world of ours. I will trv to picture her to the readers of thej Word and Works iu the best light! possible to me. My ideal woman i realizes that the world does not ex pect great things of her, but in the doing of little things is where she will be tried. The question with her is. what shall I do. and how? She bravelv answers the first bi saying, duty first, and the other, whatever I undertake to do I must j do well, in a faithful, graceful, j loving, tireless way, that I may ob-j tain a noble, glorious, helpful wo- manhood. The ideal woman at , home. To the ideal woman home , is her first thought. Duty calls and keeps her there, and she ap preciates that home, be it ever so humble, it is always large and grand enough to her for the devel opment of good, tender, sincere wo manliness. My ideal woman is thoughtful and does not wound the feelings of her family or friends at every turn. Of her it is said, --Her price is far above rubies," for she always helps to make home happy and beautiful. She is of a bright, sunny, unselfish, happy disposition. At home and abroad she is always kind, patient, forbearing and thoughtful of father mother, sisters, brothersand friends. Of her talents she makes no vain display, whether she be a business or an intellectual domestic woman. For when occasion demands she is found to be a wise, intelligent busi ness woman and an intellectual, in dustrious and economical house keeper and home maker, and of her it is said. "She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not of the bread of idleness." She has a strong character, temperate in all things, obedient, attentive and reverent to her elders. Bv her gentleness, even temper, hospitali ty and enjoyment of quiet fun, she wins the respect of great and small, old and young, and her presence is missed if she be absent even for a short time. When illness comes and help is needed, she is always ready to act, and1 acts quickly and quietly, and by her tenderness soothes many an aching heart. The ideal woman being contented and happy, fills her home with an atmosphere of sunshine, sympathy and pure happiness. She scatters sunshine as well as flowers wher ever she goes, and her mind, heart and soul grows broader in so doing. The ideal woman is never out of place socially, she always finds and is in her exact place, being natural, gracious and unatTected in manner, exquisite in dress.noble in purpose, true of heart, just as beautiful as nature and good home training and culture can make her. Interested in others and not always talking about herself, she enters into the conversation of those around her with spirit and wit. The ideal wo man has high ideals, and strives hard to attain and keep them, and thereby stands fast by her woman hood. She also strives to elevate humanity, but unlike the average woman, she does not think she has to work in the slums. No, indeed, her sphere is larger than that. She makes it known that idle gossip, slang and scandal are not only un wise, but unkind, unnecessary and unwomanly. The ideal woman is not always thinking of marriage but is preparing for it every day of life by being true to her parents, sisters, brothers and friends, and grows more gentle, tender and deep hearted. These graces are not attained in a day or a week, but day bv dav for years. The ideal woman is all wo manly and beautiful within. She is wise in choosing her men friends and does not look upon every man friend as a lover, but makes truth, honesty, purity, sobriety, industry and manliness the necessary quali fications of uch friends. A virtue much admired by the ideal woman is chivalry, for. says she, a man who is rude, intemperate, or disre spectful now. and brings the blush to a young woman's face and re peatedly hurts her feelings, would, if she were his wife, bring much sorrow to her heart and blister her cheeks with tears. Yes. the ideal woman shuns all idle or unprinci pled men. or when she does meet them, by her kind, gentle womanly ways shows them their errors and thereby helps them on to a better, happier life. The ideal woman when she marries, which she most certainly does, marries a man of heart, brain, strong will and a man of prayer. "Favor is deceitful and beauty is vain. The woman, that feareth the Lord she shall be praised."
