paper Bhould at leant bo accorded
ono merit , that of brevity.
It is Haid one of the indication * )
of the weight of yoart iw when we
uru wont to boast of our ability to
uompoto with thoBo WIOHO ! wint' ru
and HUtnmorH have not had the H.IIIIU
roukoning HO pluatic CXCUHC , we are
not in our dotage.

in comparison the old Heltler of
OiiBter ooiuity can justly elaim to
outrival any modern MetluiHnlah of
the nineteenth century production.
If piiHh , | luuk , porfliBlcnt effort
IB aeuorded only to youth then
indeed have we found Ponce Da
LOOM'H fountain of youth located in
the heart of ( Junior eounty Nobriis-
ki. We have not met today in
this annual gathering to bewail paBt
IOHBOB like the daughterB of iHrael ;
the rcHultsof Borne modern JojHha's

Elijahs , under "jumper trocH , "

Vwn-Winklo nap while the wheolH
of progrcuB have boon leaving UH a
dcoado behind thotimcH. AH wetako
this annual outing one thing in Holf-
evident wo have developed thostay-
ing qualities and may justly elaim
to bo the "survival of the fittest , "
Hiil and drouth have tuooeodod
oaoh oil or and reduuod our financial
prospeots but for lioroio endurance ,
indomitable energy , Napoleon with
hid hosts of diplomats never oem
batted the olcnients wi'.h suuh sig
nal SUOOCBS , nor suorod the vietorics
with as good oonseienco as the
average Nolmiskau. Is our miseion
done ? Nay verily. Wo are not
waiting for our friends to die before
wo strew lloworB over thorn. Wo
behove in breaking our alabaster
boxes on our living friends , oaumng
them to rojoioo hero and now with
us as a foretaste of bettor things to
Wo like good tilings most cer
tainly ! Our standard motto shouH
read good , better best. Today wo
are voicing that sentiment not only
in our foaming capacities but social
relations as well.
What if our heads show silver
haira ? Each silver hair a token
given ; loss of earth , and moro of
| heaven. Some of us wore while
jj hatred when babies so mother's say.
* ' Our eyes getting dim ! Then wn
may not see the faults of others so
readily , and have moro time to
eon not our own. Our ears slow to
catch the sound ! Wo may not hoar
as much discord but moro of bar-
mony. Our steps feeble , let them
be moro cautious and go only where
duty leads. Wo are also reminded
that growing old does not excuse
us from responsibility. Wo are
hero as so many linger boards point ,
ing out the way to others , who are
to try this rugged highway. Some
times wo stop hero and there to
mark plaoes in bridges whore it is
unsafe to paHsBomotimcB strengthen
whore weakness lies concealed. As

Growing old ? Perish the thought.
Wo must keep youthful hearts , if
wo would bo in touoh with this pro
