It is in favor of your taking the paper, but wants you to pay what you owe, first. Pull down the fire traps. The city water is full of green scum. Call at this office and look at it. It is tuft". If you do not go to church to morrow well, you should go to church to-morrow. The Glohe these days is getting many new suhscribers, and has no complaint to offer. Ik the Mangum street grade is not fin ished pretty soon when will it be fin ished y Ik a few more merchants would adver tise, a few more merchants would do more business. Rouinsox, Commissioner of Agricul ture, should be impeached. He is a self confessed fraud. Ellis, Stone & Co. tell their own storj', in one of Col. Charley Whita keh's best ads to day. There is no use to talk : The fight for governor is coming up pretty, soon, and it will stay up until all is settled. The great national alliance meeting at Indianapolis, ends to day. Polk will come home now and deny something. The Durham fertilizer fraud should be made to pay for violating the law. But Commissioner Rouixson will not do his duty. It is pleasant to note the fact tnat our police court these days is exceptionally quiet. All of this for the good name of our town. By the way, what has become of the sewer frauds, who wanted a fifteen year franchise? That was the biggest fraud yet presented. If the parties who promised us wal rus oil on subscription will bring in the stuff, we will be much obliged. We also could use a few casks of whale blubber. The bit of local news which TnE Globe printed yesterday concerning the Dandy street intruder caused much com ment. And it might be stated here that It was all authentic and that the man who staggered in the house really be lieved that he was at home. The Globe has no desire to bring the members of the intruders family into humilation, if net disgrace, hence the name of the silly fool is withheld. , 1 1 TALK FOE THEM NOW. We learn that many of the large prop erty owners are already discussing the advisability of voting $100,000 in bonda, the proceeds of which will go to a sew erage system in this city. Of course Jjefore this can be done the legislature must give us authority for such an expenditure, but that body will meet again. In the meantime every loyal citizen who favors such a project should con verse with his neighbor and if he finds him opposed to such a scheme he should at once attempt to convince him of the ne cessity of a sewerage system, and also attempt to talk him in favor of voting bonds. Durham is growing grandly growing, we believe, but until she breaks loose from the old fogy ideas and takes on new life, she can not hope for much. If it goes out to the world that we are in earnest and that the municipality is in favor of doing much for herself and we all are part of it then strangers will have hope and faith. A good sewerage system placed by the city, as is generally done, would be a big stride for Durham it would make property worth more, and those who paid the tax would be enriched. This has been the history of all cities, and it is why cities are always in favor of bonding themselves for public im provements, after the ice has been once broken. Agitate the scheme, and see if your neighbor is not in favor of doing some thing which will make a town, and which will require all property owners to as sist. BUT IF THERE IS. They tell us that there is very much of this stuff called religion that on the way one may meet with very much of il that some is good and some is bad. But such stories are not true. No pil grim ever yet met with bad religion no pilgrim ever saw such a compound. The lighter and more gentle elements of one's nature must come to the front when religion is being talked about, and the Old Man proposes to have a very brief say this afternoon, and in doing so he takes all the responsibility on himself. We want to talk just a little while on two subjects for to morrow, and the first one is: "Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy." In the book cases at his home the Old Man has more books on theology than any one minister in the town. Having these he follows, closely the biblical in junction and remembers the Sabbath day and keeps it holy. On that day he reads the Story as it is written and then he reads what the brightest minds have said about it. And the Story seems to teach him sim ply this: Be honest. Be virtuous. Be decent. And while it talks about Faith, Hope and Charity and assures us that Charity is greater than 'em all, we find that Hon esty, Decency and Virtue are pearls of much greater price in this old topsy-tur-vey world where all the wrongs come uppermost. The mere habit of going to church amounts to nothing. If a man or woman only goes to church to see or to be seen, it were better that such creatures re mained at home. The church and its usual program is merely for an opportunity to worship God, and those who to-morrow can preach His word and who will do it at home, are just as good Christians as if they arose early and rushed to church. Those who will not read the Word themselves with a proper spirit had bet ter grease their boots and whiskers and give some church the benefit of their presence. ALAS ! IT FAILED. The Old Man, since moving on the farm bought him a scroll saw. His Idea was to saw out a job lot of little brackets and Whirl-I-Cues and sich. But all human affairs are transitory and we often plan plans which do not jibe. The word jibe is from the French and means dove tail. We had expected to start a little box office on the Farm and sells tickets which would entitle the holder to a quart of Pure Sweet Milk, a Goose or a beautiful scroll which he had Sawn from the native timber which does not Abound on our Farm. We expected to carve and fashion large and Tempting Yams into watch charms with our Cute little scroll saw, but then as we have before remarked, all human affairs are transitory and proper ty will be higher in the spring. The confounded saw did not and does not work just as we tad expected it would work. I5?Fon Sale A few thumbs and fing ers which we sawed off ourself. HE IS THE MAN. This old man, when he lived in the cold and barren northwest out where there was nothing in the way of a great manufacturing interest; out where every man was only in favor of protecting his home learned to be a low tariff man. Jim Blaine was his ideal statesman and Grover Cleveland was his ideal business man. Cleveland threw the presidency away because he was honest on his tariff views but he has lived to find the people of America in accord" with him. The democratic convention of '92 will nominate Cleveland and the republican convention will nominate Harrison. And the history may as well be written MOW. This jim crow paper i3 no prophet, but it wants its readers to remember what it gays when it writes that Cleveland will be the next president. Everything is in his favor. because the machine does not nominate Blaine. With Blaine and Cleveland in the field the two foremost men in America would be in it and it would be impos sible for any human being to predict the outcome. Bnt the party which nominated and seated Haves is not looking for any ability to head the ticket, and that is why Harrison will be the nominee. And The Globe says all this as a strictly independent newspaper. AS TO STYLE ! It may be the business of no one but the fellow who makes fashion plates to talk about styles, but of it, under the con stitution most any fool has a right to a say, and so we propose to remark one or two on Style. The women these days are riding bicy cles and doing so straddle. Well, this is style. Suppose that one of the fair and radiant creatures had attempted this some years ago. But then to suppose such a thing were sacrilege. Women still torture them selves with the cruel corset and yet Style says it must be so. It is customary to burn the front hair to make it curl and women and Style say "yes." The high-heeled and close-fitting shoe is another edict of this same fashion plate and no one dare offend. It occurs to The Globe that the Indian who dressed himself or herself up in nothing but hectic flush and sunshine enjoyed better health and lived longer than any of the misguided fellower3 of the latest fashion plates. And why do they have all these new styles ? Simply because some manufacturer wants to sell and make something new and because th3 women are fools enough to buy them. Look at the naughty and haughty men. A Prince Albert coat has been in style for years and years and it will always be in style. Why ? Because it is neat and dressy and all right. A woman's togs may be ever so out landish but if they correspond with the last fashion plate they are hummers. Bah Let the women give Fashion a rest and resort to common sense. MAY THEY MAKE IT. We see by the Omaha papers and cir culars received from the committee that Omaha is in the field and wildly, too, for the republican national convention of 1892. It may.be said truthfully that Omaha should have the convention. In the first place Omaha is about the geographical center of the United States. It is a city of 150,000 people and has ample room and accommodations for the large crowd which must of necessity at tend the nominating convention of the republican party. No convention has ever been held west of Chicago, and the West is demanding some recognition in that line. Chicago has the World's Fair for that year, and it looks, indeed, as though Omaha might be a successful bidder. We notice that several special cars filled with Omahoys, and all boomers left that city for Washington Tuesday night. AT RANDOM. Will there be any jolt, If Governor Tom Holt Is chosen again next year ? There may be some jar, For Elias Carr Is apt to ride off on his ear. Again the painful news reaches this print shop to the effect that Col. Charley "Whis ker will soon predict a snow. Colonel Whitakeb's weather bureau and washstand combined have both been so irregular here of late, that re fear he is a base impostor. Col. C. A. Jordan, so the story runs, has sold his Ited Polar Bear, and will have him exhibited at the World's Fair and credit him to Buncombe county. The colonel is a good deal on buncombe when it comes to Red Polar Bears. The opera house. t3Please stop and laugh two hours. We will finish this article some other time. Col. Dick Wbitehurst claims that he killed a king snake which measured 40 feet and which had caught 74 rats at his house. As there is no semblance of truth in his state ment we refuse to print it. It is 6trange that a Fall advertisement may be standing as many uf them are. Frank LesIU'g Popular Monthly. Joaquin Miller's new story, "The Red Shield," is published entire and ex clusively in the Christmas (December) Number of Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly. It is a dramatic and highly colored romance drawn from the excit ing history of the foundation of the grtat banking house of the Rothschild's, in the early part of the present century. Another feature is the graphic narrative of a visit to "The Seminoles at Home," in the Florida Everglades, by Caroline Washburn Rockwood, author of "In Bis cayan Bay," and profusely illustrated from photographs (the first ever taken of these Seminole braves) by Mr. Thomas A. Hine. Other important illustrated articles are Clara C. Gilson's personal reminiscences of "Agassizat Cambridge"; "Spurgeon," by Dr. Ferdinand C. Igle- hirt ; " Why the Holy Places Remain in the Hands of the Turks"; and "Animal Training and Intelligence,"-by Ernest Ingersol!. There is an abundance of sea sonable Christmas matter, together with the usual -variety of tales, poems and miscellany. Peterson's Magazine. Among the magazines for December, Peterson's is one of the earliest and the best. This closing number of its 50th year is especially fine, being rich in illus trations and literary matter. Howard Seely's "Two Belles of the Border," is a very amusing sketch of Texas life. ''Idle Days at St. Augustine," is ably written and illustrated with fine photogravures. "My Husband's Cousin," is a capital story, and all the others are good. The fashion departmeut commends itsef for the practical character of the plates, the descriptions of style and the plainness of direction for makeup. New writers of well known ability, and new features are announced for 1892 that will add materially to the value of the magazine.
