THE NORFOLK NliWS : FRIDAY , SEPTKMUKIl 18 , 11)03 ) ,
The Madison county load 1 the county seat during the next fo\v days and ninny ivro following them. The weather man appears to l > o making n determined effort to Htiuiil that first frost off mill the roni Is making us determined an effort to got out of the way. They hn\o already hail frost In North Dakota. Mlnnosotn , Wisconsin , nnil portions of Ohio anil Utah. HO that Nebraska Is holding her roputa- Uon an a farming state bettor than many people glvo her credit. The Madison Star-Mall IH showing eommodablo enterprise In Issuing n dally odltlnn during fair week , and the Madison merchants are showing tltolr appreciation of enterprise by taking nbout seventeen columns of advertis ing In each issue. The Sioux City Trlhnno has a spec- lal from Pouca announcing that ro- vlvnl meetings have commenced In Ponca. The NOWH now IUIH hopuH that Its friend , Thoa. J. Sholbloy will be converted and withdraw these llbol BUltS. The Knllorton News-Journal IH now owned by a Htock company. UH editor Is .1. 11. Little and the buslnoHH man ager and local editor la J.V. . Tanner. It IB to bo hoped that the HtooU com pany will tlnil It a profitable Invest- inent , but there would not HUOIII to bo much In a Hiuall country weekly for HO largo a company. The tlmo will BOOH bo hero for Homo of the fusion odltorH and orators to claim the election of Judge Sullivan by a majority ranging from 10,000 to 100,000 , and following that will como the tlmo for the republicans to rudely shatter tholr predictions. The one IH certainly a sign of the approach of the other , and la anxiously awaited by an eager public. News of u gigantic farmers' trust , backed by a capital of $100,000,000 cornea from Chicago and there Is no tlonlil but that such a scheme Is beIng - Ing urged throughout the country. The sentiment Is growing among the fanners that they can control the markets , providing only that they can unite and remain llrm In tholr de mands. Near Fremont recently a farm was Bold for $80 an aero that was pur chased four years ago for $10 per acre , Indicating the Increasing value of. land in this section of the state. If men nro able to llnd good and fertile farms In any section of Nebraska that they can secure at less than $10 an aero now It Is a snap which they should not hesitate to chinch. Church Howe , who has boon consul nt She-meld , Knglaml , for several years , has boon promoted to the posi tion of consul general at Antwerp , llolglnm , which Is a much better po sition than ho has boon holding , all of which goes to show that the d < x > ref of advancement and honors are open to Nebraska men of ability , providing they have not permitted political non sense to get possession of tholr minds. Next Monday is the second anniver sary of the death of President Win. McKinley , after his hard light to re cover from the wounds Inlllctcd by an assassin. With the onward march of the events the people are Inclined to forget the wave of sorrow that swept over the country at that time , but It will not bo harmful to recall the sentiments then expressed ! > every one. It was the keenest sorrow of the generation , and the great man's memory is revered everywhere. The' World-Herald cartoonist has , a good Idea of the canal situation , and presents Colombia as a little fellow standing on his chair and looking over a table at the hand of cards Undo Sam holds , the faces of which .lie would very much like to see. The little chap's hand Is exposed , and shows , "acceptance of treaty , " "final refusal" and "bluff. " U would not take him long to make the play If he could get a peep at his uncle's hand , and really the old gentleman does not seem to bo a bit worried over what bo may finally decide to play. The World-Herald and other papers of like character , republican as well as democratic , are getting some se vere jolts to their ferret style of cam paign , and a style that has held sway with them for many years , but It is apparent that a reform Js working and that the present campaign will bo on a higher plane than has been-known in recent years , and that the merits rather than the undesirable traits of the candidates shall receive considera tion. This is more to bo desired oy the fair-minded people generally than that the contest should bo nonpartisan san , and will bo an aid , it is believed , toward making it non-partisan. Strict partisanship and personalities have been closely affiliated In the past , and It will ho Interesting to note what ef fort a clean , respectable campaign will have on thrt voters of the state. An Klk Crook merchant who IIROS a half page In his local paper each week to announce his merchandise to patrons , has taken the tlmo to figure out Just what his advertising Is cost- lug him In comparison with the busi ness ho does , and finds that for each forty-five cents ho has paid out for advertising ho IUIH done $100 worth of business. Ho probably does not credit all the business received to his plan of advortlHlng , but has dem onstrated that It pays and proposes to keep the public Informed through the newspaper column as long as ho Is In business. The expense Is cer tainly not large for the receipts and nlmost any merchant should bo able to roall/0 the benefits of advertising when the Invostamont Is but forty-live cents on $100. Andrew Carnegie Is working stead ily on his plan to get rid of the great er part of his fortune before his tlmo comes to die , and his purchase of the Uannarekhurn Is one of the most novel means ho him yet employed. It would be greatly more to the liking of the American people If ho would disburse his money whore ho accu mulated It but ho undoubtedly has as good a right to spend It In Kuropo as has any other American millionaire , and then , anyway , Americans gener ally have too great a respect for tholr famous battlefields to permit tholr ulsllguratlon and does not present the same opportunity In that line UK Is given across the water. So If Mr. Carnegie Is really Intent on purchas ing battlefields for tholr preservation ho numt needs go whore he can do the most good with his money. A man named James Williams writes to the State Journal from Res cue , protesting against the arrest re cently made by Deputy Warden Hal- noy of a couple of men who had a Jack rabbit In their possession , and the Journal explains that the game law does not protect jack rabbits , or any other kind of rabbits , The law does , however , prevent men who live In one county from hunting In another without a license , anil that was what these men worn arrested for. In other words , a person may hunt rabbits at any tlmo In his own county , or In other counties with" permit. Per haps an. exception In this particular should have been made to permit the hunting of rabbits anywhere and at any time1 , hut Inasmuch as no such exception was made the deputies have no other recourse except to see that the law as It reads Is enforced , and a dead jack rabbit Is as good evidence that men have been hunting as a dead pralrlo chicken or quail. This Is a swift age and getting swifter as It grows older , If the trot ting record may bo taken as an Indi cation. Forty-four yours ago Flora Temple held the record with 2:19'/i. : In 11IOU Lou Dillon takes It at an even two minutes. With nineteen seconds dropped off In less than half a century , the question Is how long will It take to have another minute cut out. There are hundreds of plugs all over the country now that can go In the record time of ISM , and It Is not Improbable that in the future there will bo hun dreds that can make it Iu a two-mluuto clip. Maud S. was the most persistent time reducer. She first took It In 2:10 : % , then she cut her own'record down a half second ; Jay 13yo See clip ped It off another quarter , Maud S. re duced It another three-quarters , and finally In 1SS5 took another half-sec end from her former record. So the tlmo Is constantly reducing and It Is not Improbable that the mlle-a-mlnuto horse will be an actual accomplish ment before another century dawns. Judge Harnes , the republican candi date for Judge of the supreme court , Is known and respected In this local ity as a well equipped lawyer , a gentle man and a constant republican. All the silly stuff printed in democratic and populist papers against him Is simply waste of good printers' ink where the judge is known. The chief point attempted to be made in the cd- , ltorlals is that , he being the only can didate before the convention and his nomination being unanimous , he Is therefore the tool of all the railroads doing business In Nebraska. With the same propriety and with as much rea son , republicans might charge that in asmuch as Judge Sullivan's nomina tion was made under precisely the same conditions , he is therefore the hireling of the soless corporations that have ground down the farmers of the state until their land isn't worth less than $50 an acre. Substitute "our man Sullivan" for "our man Barnes" in the World-Herald and its Imitators' col umns of nonsensical rubbish and the yellow republican newspapers would have their slogan ready made for the campaign always supposing that such a monstrosity as an Impertinent black guard could bo found editing a repub lican newspaper In this state. Tllden Citizen. The Lincoln Star had a reporter In the automobile that paced his maj esty , CreHceus. It was a swift pace but Star reporters are accustomed to that Hort of thing In keeping up with the demaiulH of the public from a newspaper Htand | > olnl. Congress will moot on the ninth of November. luHtead of In October , as had before been contemplated. The change was made because of the fact that many of the congressmen and senators would bo In ' .ho midst of Interesting campaigns during the ear lier dates , and could not afford to bo In Washington at that time , The Irrigation congress will meet it Ogdcn , Utah , tomorrow. ThlH the organization to which the thanlcu of Nebraska and the people of other tatoH are largely duo for what the national congress has done In the way if providing for the Irrigation of arid lands , and the coming mooting should have Hiilmtantlal recognition for the work done In the past by Increased Utondanco and Increased Interest In the coming meeting. Some of those pretty song birds that ire now going south to got away from the winter , will not return again next M > rlng , If these southern slaughterers > f birds find that there Is a demand for carcases with which to adorn women's hats. Now Is a good time for the American women to Indicate that there Is no such demand ! that there Is an abundance of material with which to prettily and becomingly adorn a hat without taking the life of any living creature. It IH not costing the people what It was to pension the veterans of the wars In which America has been en gaged. The cost per capita of such pensions In 1893 was $2.21 , whtlo In 1903 the cost was $1.75. In another decade there will ho another shrinkage - ago , duo to the Increasing deaths among the pensioners. The total amount disbursed during the recent year was $ .1,038Q2i,590 : to 990,5-15 pen sioners , which Is a considerable re duction over last year. As the state campaign progresses Judge Harnes continues to grow more popular and stronger with the people as they como to know him better. The only question of his majority be ing an exceedingly large and em phatic one will be to keep the voters Interested In getting out to the polls , and In the majority of the counties campaigns are developing that will have this effect. If the people get out to vote for county candidates they will certainly not neglect to cast a vote for Judge Darncs. The fuslonlsts have not yet named their candidate for judge of the Ninth judicial district , but whoever ho maybe bo ho will find It dllllcult to overcome the popularity Judge Hoyd has at tained since ho was elevated to the bench. His decisions have pleased the people generally and ho has dem onstrated effectively that his conduct on the bench Is not governed by senti ment , personal likes or dislikes , nor by party sympathies or prejudices. He has boon Inllucnced entirely by the legal points In the case , which ho has adjudicated with unusual common sense. People feel that'they can trust him and his majority will undoubtedly bo Increased. When you send a dollar to Sears , Roebuck & Co. , Montgomery Ward & Co. , or any other eastern concern that dollar may eventually find It.- ? way back to you In payment for the grain you grow , but the profits yon pay on the goods they sell is gone forever. Not only Is It lost to you hut to the community and state , and goes to help enhance the wealth of these firms and their city. When you spend a dollar at home you stand the same chance of getting your money back and the profits to the merchant goes toward Improving the town l-i which you are Interested and which Indirectly benefits every citizen in the county. Huy what you need at home. If you cannot find It In your own town then go to Norfolk , Llnco'u or Omaha. Keep the money In the state. Kvery dollar spent In Improv ing a Nebraska city helps Nebraska. What helps Nebraska helps you , and the nearer these Improvements come to you the greater your benefit. Stanton Picket. The portion of the Rosebud Indian reservation to bo opened to settlement Includes 416,000 acres , and when It Is consldored that it is more than half as largo as the state of Rhode Island It can bo realized that It Is a territory of every respectable dimension * Divided up Into farms of ICO acres each , this would give 2,000 farms and provide homes for that number of families. The average family is gen erally estimated to consist of five persons , making the estimated popula tion of the territory , not figuring in the towns and settlements , 13,000 pee ple. It will thus bo seen that the set tlement of the Rosebud reservation by American farmers and their fam ilies will bo a matter of some impor tance to South Dakota and other sec tions of the country tributary , The ground la said to produce oats yield ing from f.O to 100 bushels to the acre and other crops In proportion and Is therefore too valuable to bo permitted to He Idle. It was , no doubt a great luminous deal and wonderful achievement In a commercial way when the Pennsyl vania railroad , at the expense of $132- 000,000 secured control of all the coal ljiislne.su In the Plttsburg district for the purpose of doteattng the Wabash and cutting out the competition of that line of railway , but It Is doubt ful If the people will throw up tholr hats and yell themselves hearse over the victory of the giant. It means that they will have to moot the demands mands of the Pennsylvania for freight .ind the coal at the mines , regardless of how oxhorbltant that may bo. They would much have proforcd that there should bo competition In the business. The tlmo Is not long passed when England was the example for every movement and achievement in this country , but there has been a change nml Knglaml Iu beginning to look to the United States for Inspiration. At the recent meeting of the British as sociation for the advancement of science President Lockycr drew com parisons that wore flattering to the younger country when ho said that while Great llrltaln had eleven uni versities the United States had 134 , and that , whereas .C-1,000,000 had been contributed toward the support of such Institutions during the past sixty years In the mother country , those In the United States had re ceived more than -10,000,000 In the last year. By means of the cheap rate ex cursion of the Northwestern many people of northern Nebraska and other portions of the state and not a few from other states are today lookIng - Ing over the fertile Rosebud Indian reservation , near Ikmestcel , in South Dakota. The present high price of lands In Nebraska and South Dakota serves to attach more than ordinary Interest to the prospective opening by congress of this fertile territory , and it Is anticipated that If congress passes a bill at the coming session , throwing a portion of the reservation open to settlement there will bo a rush next spring for desirable farms that will bo a record breaker as far as all previous openings are concerned. The last opening In Oklahoma at tracted thousands of people , but there was much apprehension lest the lands secured should not be worth the ef fort. The Rosebud lands have been tried and proven good. Farms in the vicinity of the reservation have boon cultivated for years with excellent re sults and these who arc able to secure a farm when the reservation opens will bo fully supported in the asser tion that they have drawn a fortune. It Is too good a territory to bo per mitted to He Idle , and its opening by the coming congress will have the ap proval of all the people tributary to It. ' The sentiment In favor of a cleaner , purer style of campaign is growing and extending. The two leading state candidates have favored it , and the district and county candidates of all parties are urging that the campaign bo conducted on a high plane by the newspapers and the politicians. It Is receiving favor everywhere and the probability Is that the present fight will bo unique for Its purity. It Is believed that this sentiment can bo traced back as a result of President McKJnley's sad death. At that tlmo these who opposed McKinley were criticised for the mean and undeserved things they had said of him , and of more moment than that was the ap parent fact that they who had roughly criticised the martyred president ap peared to be sincerely sorry that they had done so. Since then the democrats have used a kindlier tone in their references to President Roosevelt and republican utterances referring to Mr. Bryan and other democratic lead ers have been notably modified. The sentiment is therefore strong that the personality of candidates should be respected. Neither party Is likely to choose candidates guilty of criminal actions If they can help themselves , and it Is a discredit to our civilization that because a man is nominated for office his private actions should bo gathered up and magnified , until , in the minds of his opponents , ho is little hotter than a brnto. Papers and poli ticians should reserve the right to look after the principles of a candidate that will have a bearing on his of ficial conduct. Party papers should In sist that their candidates should bo fully qualified and honorable , but there should hereafter bo no license for a paper of the opposing party to make groundless accusations and tear a man's character to pieces for mcro pastime. Some politicians will regret the change , because It will rob campaigns of someof the excitement Incident thereto , but the people have a right to insist on the reform. ATCHISON GLOBE SIGHTS. No one over fooled the people with false teeth. In our mind , a fat horse Is always associated with a good farmer. , . As a rule , thu man who fusses most about taxes , Is most able to pay. When a man does a fool thing , he thinks It's smart , or ho wouldn't do it. As a rule , when a man has phenome nal nerve , there Is nothing else to him. It Is born of a woman to boast of her love affairs , and in a man to deny his. There nro certain women for whom somebody ought to Invent a see-less waist. As you grow older , aim to get your affairs straightened out , and quieted down. Wo wish there was a cigar so bad that smoking it would cure a man of the habit. Do a good act and you are credited with two. Do a mean act , and you are credited with ton. It Is a good sign when a community endorses husbands and wives being In love with each other. The people always admire loyalty to friends. Why don't you do more of it , and become more popular ? When you naturally lose the dispo sition to run around at night , for heav en's sake don't take medicine for It. When a woman makes a visit of over two weeks , she must be mighty nice if she is Invited to come again. One secret has been kept for many centuries ; and 'that Is the terrible worthlessness of the people collect ively. After a falsehood has been accepted twenty years by the people , without general protest , it gets into the school books. When the average woman Is 111 , she is fond of impressing it upon people that her illness was . brought on by "over-doing. " No matter how self-sacrificing you are with your family and your friends , they will not like you if you argue with thorn. We are hearing'about ' so many people plo being "pleasantly surprised. " We'll bet that ninny of them are unpleasant ly surprised. An Atchlson man , forty years old , has boon checked up closely , and it isn't believed that he has ever had a practical Idea. The man who Is always telling how much more work he does than his as sociates , should bo watched. Screw loose somewhere. Those who are looking for the easy berths usually got the hard ones , but these who don't mind the hard ones , soon get the easy ones. A married man who tries to flirt , Is about as ridiculous as a woman who tries to be coy after she has reached the double-chin period. They tell of an Atchlson man who is so henpecked that he stays home from his work every Tuesday morning to do the family ironing. The young men who call on the girls every night and then play a mat inee three or four afternoons of every week , are always worthless. Occasionally you see a stout , mid- dleage.d woman who tries to look styl ish by wearing a dross made with a yoke and buttoned up the back. When you are passing a house , and make remarks about people on the porch , did you over think that they are saying something about you ? When a doctor leaves town on his vacation , ho cannot run In a ringer on his patients. Nearly everyone has a very decided second choice in doctors. When there Is a bad accident the first thing the coroner does is to go through the pockets of the man re sponsible for it , to see if a bottle can be found. How is this for nerve ? An Atchison - ison woman borrowed a neighbor's hired girl to assist her In some work , and gossiped with the girl about her mistress. Distribute fifteen or twenty cents around among the neighbor children , and you can create more happiness than the Iron kings when they give a million to a college. The politicians don't fear the man who talks nbout what ho is going to do ; they can always go around and fix him. But It is the follow who says nothing that makes them restless at night. Ever occur to you that there is an unusual number of handsome married women in Atchlson ? There was n time , long ago , when a woman quit trying as soon as she was married. Some of the wealthy A.tchlson women are talking of white capping Like the running brook , the cd blood that flows through the veins has to come from somewhere. The springs of red blood arc' found in the soft core of the bones called the marrow and some say red blood also comes- from the spleen. Healthy bone marrow and healthy spleen arc full of fat. Scott's Emulsion makes new blood by feeding the bone marrow and the spleen with the richest of all fats , the pure- cod liver oil. For pale school girls and invalids and for all whose blood is thin and pale , Scott s- Emulsion is a pleasant and rich v Mood food. It not only feeds J he blood-making organs but rives them strength to di > heir proper work. Send fir free sample. SC'lTT ft 10\VN1J ! , UiLi -4t5 I'carl Street , if an I i "o nil i a certain woman who has been mar ried sixteen years , and who has board ed all that tlmo , in spite of protests- from her husband. Cantaloupe wisdom is about the most disagreeable. A man will .pick up a cantaloupe , look at it knowingly , , and lecture about its "points. " Still , , you know he knows nothing about it. No one knows anything about a can taloupe. An Atchlson father has seven daugh ters. All of them have special girl , friends , and he has figured out that they have acted as bridesmaids cloven times , at an expense of $387 for flimsy clothes that arc never of any use to- them thereafter. Wben a woman has spent a lot of her husband's money at a summer re sort , it gives her a good deal of sat isfaction to get home on a hot day , ' and say to him : "Goodness , I thought you wrote me you wore having cool weather at hora . " An Idle man never encourages good' citizenship , or progress , or peace , or decency. Idle men hanging around a town are always a pest. Mischief is always easy to stir up , and every use ful , progressive man finds his efforts handicapped by loafers. An Atchison colored man objects' to his wife going to church so much , and said today : "I went myself the- other day just to see what she did. She's a slave to the church , and the devil will ketch her as sure as a nickel will ketch a ginger cake. " An Atchison woman who lias had a. good deal of company , and who has visited considerably , claims to bo a. big loser , and undoubtedly her guests make the same claim. In the future , the Atchison woman will keep a set of hooks. She will put down the- length of visits , meals served , parties given , and when the guests go home V she will ask for a receipt. A certain visiting girl is raising the- devil In a certain family. One mem ber of the family invited her , against the protests of six others , and the- Indignant six are missing their meals , and growling , and frowning , but the visiting girl pays no attention. She- says she has three weeks' board com ing to her , and is going to have it. The visiting girl , as a matter of cold fact , is a great nuisance. There is a famous kin row in Atchl son county. There has been shooting , in it already , and arrangements are- being made to get it Into the courts. When relatives cannot get along , why- do they not keep away from each other ? The "talks" they have , never help matters. Keep away ; keep away. The neighbors may talk because you do not get along with your kin , but they will talk more If you shoot at them. If we ever have trouble with 1. relatives our policy will be to mind . . our own business , and Keep Away. Black Hair " 1 have used your Hair Vigor for five years and am greatly pleased with it.
