C. S. NATION, Editor and Prop. ERIDAY, JANUARY 29, 1897. Hard Times. Tliat times arc hard and money el io, no. one vi!l tl'.ny: '.liuVront Ibco- r'" MS tO C'MI-f (v'.V :t !!""! f.l (jui ti!,!oii.

Men who are out of debt and have money ahead can get along about as usual, but the man who is in debt and the one who depends on his daily labor for a living Is the one in the most strni termed cir cumstances. Men who have money are slow to let It loose; few invest ments and no Improvements are being n ado. yet ) 'iiply want to live as tlicy (Vd ten years ago, when money was easier to get; here is where they miss It. Every man who depends on his daily labor for a living should be up with the lark and try to earn his wa in.. If he earns a little more it is bet ter than being out of a job and get ting nothing. jden who have fixing up about the house or barn to do complain thnt it is dillicult to get trustworthy help and some claim that they heave work un done that they would like to do, from the fact that it is so difficult to get the average laborers to do work as It should be done. People have listened to political speeches till many have come to the conclusion that this coun try is all wrong and hope for the legis lature or congress to help them and in the general discontent they go at a job of work as if it was beneath the dignity of an american citizen to per form manuel labor, work is slighted and the man who pays for it is dissat isfied and refuses to improve his place because he cannot get it done to suit him, thus keeping many a dollar hoarded that would otherwise be in circulation and the poor man's family be bet.tsr fed and clothed thereby. Laborers must get out of the idea that the legislature can do them any material good. There is plenty of work to do and plenty of money to pay for it if the monicd men could be in duced to branch out and invest their money in property and improve what they have. If you get a Job to do. don't be in too big a hurry to get it done and get the pay, but do it well and deserve another; if the same man don't need you, he will recom mend you to some one else. Don't be afraid to work at any kind of hon orable employment just as your par ents before you did. They were not disgraced by trying to please their employers, neither will you be and if you work for a dollar a day don,t spend two dollars and agree to pay it out of your wages; you can't do it and the merchants sot n brand you N. G. and then when a run of bad luck over takes you, your family is liable to sulTer because you have no credit. If you work for low wages, don't try to ape your more successful neighbor and have everything in your house he has in his, "even if you do have to owe for it." In short, live within your income and get up and hustle and make the income as large as possible. Don't get it into your head that the mer chant or banker lias so much easier time than you have; your work ends at sun down and his never; while you are sleeping lie is worrying about some bill that is due and must be met and perhaps if you would pay him your little mite and a score of other fellows do the same lie could meet it and save his credit. In short, try and get bet ter satisfied with your lot and get up and hustle. Suppose the legislature passes the maximum freight bill, you have nothing toship; suppose they cut the legal rate of printing in two, you have nothing to print; suppose they reduce railroad fare to two cents per mile, you have ao place to go; suppose they create a dozen new and useless boards of inquiry, they will arrange to get all the places and you are not competent fo fill the place anyway; in short the fellow who has been gull ed into waiting for the government to give him a place, will get left. Make up your mind right now that the gov ernment never intended to support you and your family, but must receive some support from you and for this has agreed to protect you, as an Amer ican citizen anywhere on earth. Then offwith your coat and go to work; politicians are the only fellows who get anything out of politics and nine-teen-twentieths of them come ont poorer than when they went in. Qualifications of Officers. Some member of the legislature has introduced a bill setting out some qualifications to which a person must attain in order to becomo county su perintendent. Let him Include the probate judge. A county superin tendent should be a graduate of some college and a probate judge should be either a graduate of some law school or be regularly admitted to the bar to practice law. Many important legal questions come np in probate court and a probate judge as well as d istrict judge should at least have some legal knowledge. While Altgeld is charging that the great Increase in the number of bal- lots cast in Illinois, Indiana and Ohio is proof that the republicans carried those states by fraud, he ia saying nothing about the singular fact that, despite the Intense interest in the election everywhere in the country, there was an actual falling off in the number of votes cast in the south. There is Just as much ground for charrlm: tint the south was cirrifd fn!' I.i v.mi Ihmu 'li 'I'.e suppression m l.i, .' -Hi 1' j v.!. ;i 1 : k- I In 1 e is '"' , the charge that northern states were carried for McKinley by padding poll lists and stuffing ballott boxes. In truth, there is no substantial basis for either charge. In the south a great host of democrats refrained from voting because they could not vote fjr Bryan and free silver and would not vote for McKinley and protection. In the ninth many hundred thousand citi.fiis who never before cast a ballot went to the polls to vote. It is im possible to say how many of these votes were for McKinley and how many for Bryan, but it is very certain that a great number of such votes were cast, and there is not the slight est tangible evidence to show that the creat increase in the votes was the re sult of fraud. Altgeld doesen't pre tend to cite any such evidence. He merely generalizes in the style of a petty demagogue. K. C. Star. D. O. McCray, a correspondent of the Leavenworth Times has been de nied the priveleges of the floor of the senate on account of having, it is al leged, "written liberlons newspaper stories" regarding the appointment, by Lieut. Governor Harvey, of the committee on education. The articles referred to intimaded that the three populist members of the senate educa tional committee had been " fixed" in the interests of the book trusts and that no legislation apposed said trusts would be taken up by the senate. All ritrht, brethren we shall take you at your word, but after all the promises you have made along this line, if you don't enact some kind of a law that will tend to cheapen text books, your constituents are liable to believe Mr. McCray was correct in his allegations. The members of the G. I. A. plann ed and executed a pleasant surprise on Mrs. Maude Browning yesterday. Three o'clock luncheon was served. Those present were: Mesdames John Blake, Ed Wall, .1. T.

Mr. Weisborg was one of the best known men in this part of the state. He was one of the first settlers, and was highly respected. He landed in this country from Sweden, destitute of means, but he soon was comfortably fixed and long before his death was recognized as one of the wealthiest farmers in the county. He was known far and near for his good qualities of hand and heart and many a poor strug gling man has received an unknown "lift" from him. The funeral servi ces will be held at the house today, but we don't know the hour, and the interment will be in the Swede Baptist cemetery, I have a few choice farms in Arkan sas clear and with small incumberan ces on them, I wish to trade for Kan sas lands. 1-22 tf D.
