NEBRASKA THE LAND OF PLENTY A f&K 1 wonder why it ie that so many men spent their days working hard on rent ed farms, barely making enough to set along, with no great prospect ahead of owning their own borne*, when within a few hour journey is a land of plenty— Nebraska—where all kinds of grain and fruit can be raised with the least amount of labor where cattle and hogs fed on corn bring a handsome profit where the climate is healthful and Churches and schools abound where land is cheap and can be bought on very easy terms. Think of this, and if you want infor mation about the country send to me for "The Corn Belt," a beautifully illus trated monthly paper that tells all itbtiut Nebraska, and also for "The West Nebraska Grazing Country" an interesting illustrated booklet contain Kjng large sectional map of Nebraska.

The Chicago Tribune on that same day. last Sunday.

Even allowing the Herald all it claims, includ ing its Brooklyn and New Jersey supplements, the New York Herald on that day stilt fell short of The Tribune by more than 1,000 Unes in the actual amount of paid advertisine. The exact llgures are given as follows: The New York Herald of April 16 printed in its main edition, exclusive of Its Brooklyn and New Jer sey supplements, 7T.82S agate lines of advertise ments. Including those supplements it claims 80,760. "'The Chicago Tribune printed that day 88,450 agate lines of paid advertisements. The comparison should be made in lines of agate measure, because the columns of The Trib une are longer and contain 305 agate Unes. while those of the New York Herald contain only 288 lines of agate each. ,, For the four Sundays ending April 16. the number of columns of advertisements in the New York Herald, according to Its own claims and including its Brooklyn and New Jersey special section, was 1,067.25. In the same period of time 11 The Tribune printed 1,084.43 columns of ac tual paid advertisements. These, reduced to agate lines, give the New York Herald 3Q7.ftti8 lines and The Tribune 330,751 lines. In The Tribune there were printed in that peri oil 23.383 more agate lines than in the New York Herald. This excess was equal to elghty-oni columns of the size of those of the New York Herald.

But age doesn't spoil it, says an exchange. "Monsieur Adam he lie down on ground for take a nap. In ze morning he wake wiz pain in his side. He say: 'Oh, Mon Dieu, Tat ees ze mat taire, eh? Ah! le diable, ees von rib gone? I shall take von promenade in ze open air I shall feel bettalre.' "He see Hnc belle demoiselle asllp in ze garden. Voila de la chance! 'Bon jour Madame Iv!'

But you, Madame lv, cannot become more o( a goodess zan you is now'.' "And zat feenish Madame Iv." A fua'iv story is current in Dublin and London about the Lord Chief Baron Palles, who, having been "com manded" to attend a party given by the Queen at the Vice Regal Lodge during her stay in Ireland, construed the hour given as "10 o'clock" to mean in the morning instead of in the even ing, and the intimation contained in the corner of the card of invitation 10 the effect that "frock dress" was to be worn to indicate that he was to at tend the ceremony in a frock coat— I the style of garment popularly known in this country as a "Prince Albert." The mistake of the eminent judge as to the meaning of the expression I "frock dress" is perfectly natural, since it is only people wh'o are in the habit of dining with the Queen who would comprehend its meaning. "frock dress" means evening dress with black knee breeches, black silg stocbings, and pumps in lieu of trousers, and "frock dress" is worn at all of the Queen's private dinners, evening parties, etc. Equal to the Sacrifice. "Cyrus Baker, remove your arm!" For In an apparently careless man ner he had placed it upon the back ot her chair. Stung by the tones of her voice no less than by her words the young man flushed deeply. "Is that the greeting you give me Angeline Ashcraft—you who professed to be so sorry when I went -away to tne war—who wept upon my heck and said you would never have a moment's peace or happiness until I returned safely home again—who gave me photograph which I have carried next to my heart from that day to this!" he exclaimed. "Do you remember how you said you would be true to me though thousands of miles of ocean might roll between us?" "O, yes, I remember all that." "Have you forgotten how you said at parting 'O, Cyrus, it breaks mv heart! I cannot give you up.'" "I think I did make some such re mark." "I thinjk you did. Have you forgot ten how you hade me think of you, In camp or on the battlefield, when the bullets of the enemy were flying thick and fast around me, and let the thought that you were praying for me cheer me in that dark hour?" "I think I do recollect saying some thing of the kind." •You think you dof Ha! And when I was wounded you wrote to me to get well as soon as I could and come back to you! Do you have a dim recollec tion of doing something like that?" Now that you mention it I believe 1 did." "You have changed theji," he said scowling darkly. "You are not the same girl!" "You have changed more than 1 have Mr. Barker," coldly she answered. "You are not the same man." "You still insist," he went on, with exceeding bitterness, "that I remove my arm." "I do." "So he it then." Calmly the young man arose, un screwed his wooden arm, placed it at her feet and turned to go. "I hope, Miss Ashcraft," he said, "you are satisfied." But Miss Angeline Ashcraft -had fainted. Alnch. of the Enjoyment.

Howard Culver, of Garden Grove, last week received the following interesting letter from Dick Baser, a son of lialph Raker, of near Crowu, who is servii Uncle Sam in the Philippine Islands. MANILA, P. I., November 17,1900 DKAR FBIKND HOWARD:—I have been thinking of you to day and thought 1 would write you a few lines.. I have not written anyone at Garden Grove except C. B.

Bryan and bis crowd are dead politically beyopd hope of resurrection This country, is a great contrast to the States. The streets here are na-row and crooked, most of them without side walks.

Their amuse' ments consist of cock-fighting and play ing monte. There is a large trade here. 1 have been told that it' is larger than it has ever been before. What this country needs more than anything else is Ameri can capital. As soon as American capi tal commences to be invested here the nigeers will either have to work or starve. At present the niggers in Cavite province plant a small patch of rice, small garden, have a few hogs and chick ens, most of them a horse or a carbou Bananas and mangos grow wild. Fish abound in every stream and, in the wet season, even in the rice fields. Here in Manila they are policemen, street-car drivers, carametti drivers, sailors and quite a number of U. S. government em' ployes. The only thing a nigger under stands is force. The government uses no more force than is absolutely neces sarv. 1 think that they are beginning to see that we do not intend to kill and rob them, but that we sincerely wish to help them. There are several public schooU here with a full attendance. The 14th U. S. infantry got back from China this week.

His brother in California, will go after it in the spring. The relatives got the first information of his death by telegram, which was ten days in reaching his wife at Indianola, Iowa.

What might have been a fatal accident and what has proved to be a very painful one, happened to Mrs. John Smith Monday afternoon about live o'clock. On the aide of her kitchen Irom which the cellar is entered there are three doors, two besides the cellar door. Thinking she was entering one of the other doors, she opened .t£e cellar door which is left handed, and stepped right of! into space, falling clear to the bottom, as the bloody trail which marks the steps on her crawling back shows. Though very badly hurt, no bonen were broken and she had sufficient use of herself to crawl back up stairs, and phone for her husband. Elder John Smith, still at the Herald office engaged with his duties as manager. On hasten ing home he found his wife leaning her head against the wall, dizzy and bleed ing. Help was summoned "the wounds washed and dressed, and examination showed that the profuse bleeding which had occurred, was caused by an allumi num hair pin being driven into the left side of her bead in the fall. Her left hand which she would naturally throw forward in falling on the left side, was badly hurt, and her whole left side is bruised and sore. Being a very large woman, it is a wonder that the acci dent was not fatal. Mrs. Smith at present writing is as comfortable as could be expected after so severe a fall. Lamoni Patriot.
