HE MADE VERY GOOD.
Romance of Albert Wtlkup and Emma ,Nauman's Courtship, i A poor Atchison county lad, 14 years old, fell in love with the 13-year old daughter of Hiram G.Nauman,of Holt county. The boy's parents lived in the Pleasant View neighborhood, northwest of Mound City. His father tried to lick the love out of him. The lad asked the girl to wait for him, and he left the old home to "make good:" then he came back a rich man. The records of the re corder's office in Holt county say that on October 18, 1910, Rev. O. D. Allen united in marriage Albert Walkup, of New York, and Miss Emma, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hiram G. Nauman, of Holt county, at the bride's home, in northwest Holt. The following story comes from New York, which was revealed Fri day night of last week, at the enter tainment of the' alumni association, of the Harlem Evening High school, at Terrace Garden: "Albert L. Walkup, of S. T. Wal kup & P.ro., 1 Madison avenue, spe cial agents for the United States Guarantee company, was born on a farm in Atchison county, MoI,thirt one 3'ears ago. The Walkups were poor. Their ground was wedged in among big farms. But the parents managed to give the children a fair education. Albert was a hardy boy, who rode a horse like a man and carried a gun across his saddle. One Sunday he rode to the Presbyterian church at Pleasant View, fifteen miles. Sitting in the church lie saw Emma Nauman, daughter of a rich farmer. AVith the courage of a boy accustomed to mak ing his way when no one else would make it for him, he set about getting acquainted. By fall he had made good progress and visited the Nauman home with other boj's. When Christmas came he was in vited to drive the. Nauman girls to the country Christmas tree. He made the trip from his home on horseback in a blinding storm, took the party to the entertainment and placed a $1.50 ring on the tree for Emma. She laughed when she got. it. but slipped it on her linger and wore it and wears it yet. Albert's father learned where he had been and whipped him. Until the following fall there were no more trips in Pleasant View, but Septem ber 21, 189o, the longing to see the girl got the better of him. He sad died his horse m the pasture, tore down three fences to get to the high way and rode to the Nauman home. 'I believed I was a man,' he said, 'and I'd made up my mind to run away and make my fortune. I asked Emma to come out to the porch and 1 told her what I felt. I'm going to make a man of myself that you can be proud of,' I said. 'Will you wait for me?' 'I'll wait,' she whispered. 'And mind, you're to make a man of your self. That's in the trade.' Then she ran in. 'The next day I rolled up two shirts in a red handkerchief, kissed mother good-by and heard her pray for me. That day I put twenty miles between me and home. The day after I went to work as a track builder. I said I -was 20 years old and I made good. When harvest time came I went up to Dakota and husked corn. Then I earned and saved $30 cow-punching and went to Iowa. 'After several months I heard from one of my brothel's, who had come to New York and wis a car conductor, and I came here in 1897. I got a job as porter in a store. But T didn't like indoor work, and with what I had saved I bought a cab and two horses. .Autos were coming in ana alter a while I sold out andput$200inastore with another brother. I went to night school and was graduated. 'My first brother had studied law and was working for the United States Guarantee company. I studied law and went with him. From that time we rolled up business on nothing but nerve till we were making $10,000 a year apiece. In 1!H)7 I went back to the farm on a visit. 1 called Emma up on the 'phone from father's place. She knew my voice at once. 'Have you?' she asked. 'No, I haven't,' I answered, 'but I'm going to. Can you wait a little yet?' 'She said she would, but asked me to write, and from that time till two months ago we corresponded. Then I felt I'd at last 'made good' and might go home and show ofT. Of course, 1 didn't expect to see a little girl in white dress, but I hadn't looked for the beautiful woman who drove into town. She looked me right in the eyes and she said, 'Yes, you have made good.' We were married in the old church. It isn't much of a jstory, iut it's a whole lot to us.' Mr. and Mrs. Walkup led the grand march at the alumni association enter tainment last night." I GROCERIES, MEATS, BAKE 600DS.

Postmaster General Hitchcock is quoted as saying that "the day of the get-rich-quick scheme is past." That he means to demonstrate the truth of this statement is indicated by the fact that he has led a raid on two offices in New York in which im mense sums of money changed hands. The postmaster general is quoted as saying that fraudulent deals amount ing to more than $40,000,000 have been transacted in the two offices which already have been raided. Without questioning Mr. Hitch cock's motives, it may be fully ad mitted that it is high time the gov ernment moved against the confi dence man in high places. It is. in deed, surprising t hat something along this line lias not been done long ago. The get-rich-quiek scheme is, as ev erybody knows, misnamed. More ac curately it might be called the get-poor-quick scheme. Those who dream dreams of being able to retire from the active walks of life by buying much for little are nearly always the people who have little or nothing to spare, and to whom the loss of a few hundred dollars means penury. With the commercial agencies sup plying reliable records and figures in the field of business, it seems strange that the government eaniut and does not perform similar services in pro tecting the public from the safely en sconced scamps whose strongest wea pon is the mails.

Only once since the election of Mc Kinley, in 189(5, has any party had a larger plurality in the House than the Democrats have obtained in the re cent election. McKInley went into office with a plurality of seventy-two in the House. This was reduced to twenty-two in the mid-term election. His second term opened with a con gressional plurality of forty-hve. There was a falling off of thirteen in the next election. The banner plu rality of the last decade accompanied Roosevelt's election in 1904, when the Republicans had 114 votes over the Democrats in the House. The next election produced a plurality of fifty- eight and President Taf t began his term with a majority of forty-seven. In the next House the Democrats will have a plurality of sixty-four. j Some of the Real Estate For Sale By R. C. BENTON, OREGON, MO. No. 1.
