Their plan is to raise on the farm all that they need, and only what they need, to sell nothing and to do without whatever is to be had only by purchase. They are to cultivate the land themselves and make their own clothing. Miss Gilbert was graduated from the Sioux Falls High school and she taught in the schools there. She was active socially in the city life. Her brother became known in Chicago dur- th World's fair, where he was employed as an architect on some of the buddings.

Of the active farmers now in Nebras ka, most of the older set remember how ! we used to stand up in line before the teachers desk at the district school and read from the old McGuffey's- Fifth Reader. It was a sterling book and every 'piece" was a gem. How proud j we were when we had benn promoted to the fifth reader class and could stand up with the big boys and girls, and read verse about down the line. Some of us can even yet recite from memory the thundering lines of Byron describing the Battle of Waterloo! commencing "There was a Eound of revelry by night." We can remember some uf the stirring passages from Webster' great oration where he began, uMr. President, I shall enter into no ecomium upon Massachu setts." We remember the story from Washington Irving of buffalo hunt which occured over a hundred years ago out in this western countrv some-, where, and the ctory of the beautiful Genevra. who in playful ihoughtlessnees locked herself in the great oaken chest which held the secret of her death for fifty years. Life seemee very beantif u ana romantic to us toen, wnen our hearts were tender and impressionable. before these later disappointments had deadened our finer sensibilities. But we promised so much and we've gamed so little. We promised so much of glory and gold. And we ve gamed so little That our hands are cold. And for cold and trior v we've trail instead, Hearts that are sickened and hopes that are dead. There's as much beauty in the world now as there was then, but we aon't see it. Love is humming the same old tunes, but the gentle music does not reach our ears. "Time, that defaces u. Places and replaces us," has put deeD furrows and harsh looks upon the happy faces which we had then. If we had been content to keep in the broad highway where competency and content comes at last as a sure re ward for honest toil apd frugal living, if we had kept out of the sideroads into which greed, speculation and fashion were forever beckoning us, we would now be looking at life "from a different standpoint, and the distance between what we hoped to achieve and what we have achieved would not seem so great. But speaking of how we sometimes see ourselves from the wrong standpoint and how the burden of.' each one seems to him heavier and harder to bear than the burdens of his fellows, reminds me of another one of the "pieces" which we used to read in the old McGuffey's. In a certain country the people came to the king each with & burden peculiar to huaseif, which seeijaed to him more grievious than the burden of any other, and which he prayed might be removed by some act of the king or some process" of law. One man had a scolding wife, another had a carbuncle on his shoulder, another had a cork leg, and still another had an undutiful son. Now, if that king had been a demagogue, he. would have tried to fool the people, to) take their minds off on a wild goose chise after some pre tended reform. He would have called a convention and would have prepared some thundering resolutions. He would have organized a street parade of those who had grievances. There would have been banners and mottoes crying "Down with carbuncles!" "Down with undutiful sonsP "Down with scolding women!" and down with cork legs!" But the king was neither a demagogue nor a chump. He knew that life was no joke, that it was a serious matter, that thun dering resolutions or flying banners never would do away with carbuncle5, undutiful sons, scolding women or cork legs. He was philosopher enough to know that each man must evolve within himself sufficient individual strength to solve the problem of his own particular life and nust keep his temper sweet enough his mind clear enough and his eyes open enough to see what ever sunshine would fall upon his path. The king knew that each of these com plainers had brooded over his particular grievance until fee shad become morbid and chronic in his discontent, and that the only way to cure him nf this mind malady was to change off with the other fellow. And so he appointed a day when each should bring his burden to the palace and exchange it for, another. And now the man with the pcolding wife came, dragging her in. an3 flung her down be fore the king. The cork leg was thrown in a heap of discarded burdens and tha undutiful son with his cigarette and tan colored shoes was tumbled inalon with the carbuncle. And then there was a scramble each for what the other had discarded. The carbuncle man had long had his eye on the scolding wife, for she had never scolded him, and he had seen her only in company where her manners were amiable and sweet.

Yours to Please, THE BOSTON STORE, of the undutiful son was tickled to death to get the carbuncle, and the cork leg man was delighted at having an heir to his fortune and was willing to spend any amount of money on cigarettes and tan colored shoes for the undutiful son. But you remember, my old school fel ov from way back, how each of these men returned in a day or two and begged for his aid burden again. And now I am wondering how Nebraska people feel since they have exchanged republicanism for populism. The taxes were a heavy burden-under. republican rule. The populist politi cians told the people over and over again that they would reduce the salaries of ' those who lived on the public, that they would abolish the Secretaries of the Board of Transportation, would abolish a great many of the useless positions which absorbed the substance of the people and rendered no equivalent. They would abolish railroad passes and stop the private junketing of public offi cers. Enough of the people believed these promises and voted for a change to put he populists in charge of the state gov ernment. jow, what is the result? Has the burden been made lighter? I have seen a gaunt mother pursued by a nungry pace, x nave watcnea her to see if she would finally yield to the cries of the fat little rascals who were too lazy to root for themselves. I have seen her at last, as if overcome by importunities of the brood, lie down and turn up her dinner basket and I have observed how each little pig rooted his nose about to find the softest teat, and how in their greedy scramble they crowded each other, how they sucked and pulled and grunted with satisfaction as the last drop was sucked from the poor old mother and how when she could no longer give down they jammed their ittle sharp hoofs into her flesh, rooting, pulling and sucking and squealing for more. Did you ever see pigs suck with more energy than these reformers who are sucking now? Thev have been jostling each other and quarreling like cats over the spoils instead of remembering the promises they had made to the people. Some ofthem have not only their noses but both feet in the trough, and some of them, hundreds whom I could name, are squealing all over the state because there was no tent for them. If I should write it down that all these fine preten sions of reform were utterly false, that they did mean one word of it, that thev intended to fool the people by this trick of pretensions just as Bryan fooled the people when he pretended to hate in junctions, and just as he advised the farmers and workingmen to deceive dur ing the last campaign, and if I would say that populism is only an organized j appetite for office, then the governor would send out over the signature of his stenographer, another communication to the populist press denouncing me as a skunk. If the odor which republican writers give out is bad, it is the odor of populism uncovered and I don't blame them for holding their noses at the smelL Honest populists all over the state are turning their noses awav when - i they see thi3 mess of pretended reform j . .... i i reeking' With wriggling DO iltical magetst , J Whose only instinct IS appetite. , ... They are grabbing passes as passes rn. ,i rr ! were never grabbed before. They were ' grabbing salaries as salaries were never c TIME IS ffiRL JULIUS PIZER, Prop, grabbed before. They are off on junket ing tours, some of them, before they are dry behind the ears from being born into public ofiice. A week before the legislature adjourned it was all at once discovered that the Secretary of State was absent. It was given out by his clerks that he had left no word, but they thought he was off for a day or two at his home in Merrick county. It was an awkward and unusnal thing- for the Secretary Sec re lay to be away at such a time. All the business of the session, accumulates into Jus hands at the close and it is important that he be there above all times in the year. The buTs passed are required to be handled with great care lest there be some error in compiling them into the printed laws. But the secretary was away just at this critical time, and the mass of of newly made laws was dumped into his office, into the hands of a lot of inexperienced clerks, just as a careless farmer dumps a load of corn into the mud before a pen of hungry cattle. The lawyers and these who understand how important it is to keep the work of legislation orderly and straight, smiled when they saw the general tumbled and disorderly manner in which the session was ending; and some of them say there is scarcely a bill passed which, when it finally gets into the book will stand the test of its constiutionality. But as the Secretary was away everything went by guess, and no one could tell where he was-or when he would return. In two weeks after the close of the session he appeared and began to tell his confidential friends of the wonderful sights and the wonderful advantages of Florida. He had been on a junket to the south and could not keep the secret. Warwick Saunders, one of the oil inspectors, is just returned from Texas, and is trying to be inter viewed in an advertising scheme as a re ward for his transportation. The gov ernor and his private secretary, with their families, are off ha a private car for a junket to Port Arthur and other points in Texas, which they are trying to boom. The Gulf road, which furnished the private car and equipped it with victuals ahd drink is sending out boom ing dispatches all over the country quot ing the governor and Maret as being: wonderfully impressed with the oppor tunities offered by western Arkansas and other points which are seek ing immigration from Nebraska. How do you like the change as far as you've got. J.W. Johssos. PURE LAKE ICE I am again in position to srrpply the people of North Platte with, a superior quality of pure ice frozen from well water.
