Land Commissioner Groff found a
novel case awaiting decision when he en
tered the land office. Four years ago a
young lady went from Iowa to Dakota on
a visit to a friend. There she learned
that a beautiful eighty acre tract lay
alongside of a farm which had just been
entered oj Michael Barr, She home
steaded on It, buiJ t a house and broke
some sod. But May and Michael fell in
love and were made one; then came a
serious question, how could one bold two
homesteads. They attempted to overcome
the difficulty by moving both houses up to
the line between the farms and by keep
ing a lull equipment .pf housekeeping
arrangements, iu each. There was no
door between and when they went from
one house to the other they risked the
cutting blasts of a Dakota blizzard. It
was loye against law. But unfortunately
for their ingenious devices, tho law got
the best of it. The cold hearfd Nebraska
Commissioner decided that when the
young lady became Mrs. Barr she was de
barred from the homestead prerogatives.
The decision forms a precedent. Young
ladies can only keep their homesteads by
keeping their hearts. And yet moit
young ladies get a home for their hearts.
So that it Is a confusing question, and
perhaps the best that can be done with it
is to let each young woman decide for
herself when the emergency arises,! as she
most certainly will do anyhow. Advance.
The modern magazine may be tuken as
embodying the best literature of tbe world
as the magazine editor pays the highest
prices to novelists, scientists, statesmen
soldiers, and even kings and princes, for
the best they can furnish in the liter
ary line. The well-edited magazine be
comes an educating influence in the fam
ily circle, whose importance cannot be
over estimated. The children, as they
grow up are attracted by its illustrations,
and so come In time to have a taste lor
reading. There is always something that
is new, something that Is strange, some
thing that is interesting; and we consider
that we are doing our readers a positive
benefit 11 we are instrumental in placing
sueh a publication within their reach.
The special arrangements which we have
made with the Cosmopolitan presents very
unusual inducements. That magazine,
although only in the tenth month under
Its new management, is already recog
lned as one ot tbe most Interesting publi
cations ol the day.
Senator Sherman talks about Third
Termlsm at Columbus, On In the fol
lowing language:
"I have nothing more to say, except
this, that the Republican candidates all
through, from Governor Foraker down to
the end of the ticket, represent the creed
and principles of the Republican party;
therefore they ought to be elected.. That
they have been fairly nominated there is
no doubt, rhe nominating conventions
of the two parties met and placed before
hte people of Ohio the candidates of their
choice. We belong to either one or the
other of these great parties. We are
not wandering stars, but we are either
Republicans or Democrats, and eyery
man elected In Ohio this rail will be
either a Republican or a Democrat
Now, what have been the ob
jections made to Governor Foraker f Does
any man say he Is not an honorable, high
minded man? Becoming a Union soldier
when a boy, and all during the war per
forming feats of heroism; not excelling
other soldiers, but equaling any oi them;
man of high character, of honorable
record, a judge, a lawyer, twice a Gover
nor, and-nownomiuatud tbe third time as
Governor of tbe State ol Ohio This is an
exceptionally good record, of which any
man might well be proud. But here
comes the rub. They say he is nominated
for tbe third time, and be is what they call
a "third term" candidate.
Why for a third term ? Becanse he has
done so well In both his previous terms
that the Republican party of Ohio were
willing to sanction him as their candidate
for a third term and Intend to elect him.
Great applause. Why should not
man be nominated by tbe Republicans for
a third term as Governor of Ohio What
a there In the office that prevents bis lull
and free and complete performance of all
the duties Imposed upon him as Governor
of Ohio? It is simply folly. What can
Governor Foraker, elected lor a third
term, do to endanger tbe liberties of tbe
people of Ohio? Nothing. In the tint
place it is not in his heart to do anything
that would affect Injuriously the people of
Ohio. Long continued cheers.
Why, fellow citizens, it Is making a
mountain nut of a mole hill ; It is perfectly
ridiculous, and when my venerable friend
Judge Tburman. for whom I have pro
found respect when be stood up before
the thousands of people who heard him
last night, and talked about the powers of
the Governor of Ohio, he knew better,
And the truth now is that what make
some men disgruntled In Ohio In regard to
a third term. Is because Governor Foraker,
perhaps, did not satisfy thorn in the tilling
some Insignificant appointments which he
has had to make. Applause and shouts
ot approval. That because he has this
power, he can affect In any way the Inter
ests of the people of Ohio, as I said, Is the
merest nonsense. What is there in lit
What else Is there in the objection t I do
not know any. Cheers. I ask any man In
tills audience, now before me, to name me
an objection to Uovern'r.Foraker, and let
us see If I cannot answer it.
Home of Hie greatest and ablest men
ever produced in this country have heKl
this position a long time. And yet, Gover
nor Foraker, because he was unamlously
nominated . by the Republican party as
Governor for third term, is to be held up
as man who has become the Ctesar of
our State, The Republican party, born
and bred to go through. all tbe storms and
scenes of political warfare, Is not to be
disturbed with Idle ghosts, mere phantoms
of the brain. They conjure children and
weak-minded people, but never the Re
publican party of the Stale of Ohio.

Tbe President having disposed of tbe
perplexing question ot who should be
Commissioner of Pensions to tbe satis
faction of himself, and of tho party
leaders, as far as heard from, has devoted
his entire time this week to preparing his
message to Congress. I say hU ' entire
time, by that I mean bis official time; he
has considered no other official matter.
Gen. Raum, the new Commissioner of

not his purpose to make uay chnng un
til certain of his ground. Just now he is
engaged, and is likely to be for some time
to come, in acquainting himself with the
work of the office. It is generally believed
that as soon as he gets things in shape
many official changes will , be ' made
several of them involving the most im
portant positions In tho Burnuu. Gen
Raum's record ss Commissioner of In
ternal Revenue, leaves no doubt that his
administration of the Pension office will
be entirely successful.
Secretary Blaine has devoted considers
ble time this week to a rigid investigation
of charges made against W. R. Lewis, U.
S. Consul at Morocco, of extol ting money
from certain parties for United States pro
tection in Algiers. Mr. Lewis, and his
accusers natives ot Algiers have been
present at the investigation, the result of
which has not yet been made public.
Tbe President has been compelled by
a press of important business here to de
cllne an invitation to attend the laying of

Chief Justice Fuller evidently knows a

Chief Justice fully approve of the an
cient adage "a bird In the band," etc.
Mr. Houck also thinks the time has
arrived when very man who has been
honorably discharged from the rrmy or

Washington's real boom for World's Ex
position of 1892 began on Wednesday,
when representatives from nearly every
State In the Union met here for the pur
pose of arranging a memorial to be presen
ted to Congress In favor of this city as the
proper location for the great celebration.
The memorial sets forth at length the
special advantages of Washington and the
National character of the proposed ex
position. The board ca'Jed on the Presi
dent in a body, and were very cordially
received. There is no doubt that the
President favors Washington, but. Of
course good taste prevents his publicly
saying so at this time.
Col. Dill's Love for the Old Soldiers.
The way Col. Dill of Mansfield, Demo-
crat candldatejfor tbe State Senate tries to
hoodwink the old soldiers and procure
their votes is Illustrated by an incident
that took place in Mansfield last week.
Dill went to an enthusiastic Grand Army
man, and a Republican, and requested his
vote on tbe ground that the old soldiers
ought to stand toetgber and support each
other. Dill was so earnest and apparently
so sincere in bis devotion to the old sol
diers that the Grand Army man had about
concluded to vote tor him and do what, be
could to urge others to do the same, nut
at tbe close of this conversation he hap
pened to think that he bad an old comrade
running on the Republican ticket for 'a
county office and be asked Dill if be
would not vote for him, but this was more
than Dill bad bargained for and he bad to
confess that' he could not nor would not
vote for any one but a Democrat Dill has
had a hundred chances to vote for an old
soldier since he left the service and yet he
has never voted for one unless be hsppened
to be on the Democrat ticket, which we
know Is seldom the case. The gentlemen
who placed Dill in nomination before the
Democrat Senatorial Convention stated
that his principal qualifications and fit
ness for the position were that be was a
Democrat eviry inch of him and that he
never had voted for nor supported any
one but a Democrat Comrades, be not
deceived In this matter and when Dill
or anyone asks for your votes let them
show themrelves as liberal to soldlors
as they request you to be,
