kind of loyalty. The bolter and the disappointed office seeker have done theft share and what Is more they seetn to be pfoiid of It. It Is probable that the Republican party In this county has learned a few lessons by Its recent experiences. Among other things it Oilght now to understand the wisdom of! that sacred admonition, "Oast not your pearls before swine lest they turn again and rend yon." It is hinted that Mr. Stephens' course in fighting Mr. Dolllver, Mr. llandall and Mr. Quarton was due to his recognition of the difficulty he would encounter in securing a Republican re- nomination for a fourth term next fall. It is believed by some that after getting all he can ever hope to get from the llepublican party he has deliderate- ly turned traitor to it and has given his energies to the Democratic candidates this fall in the hope of securing a Democratic nomination or indorsement next fall. That would be figuring Stephens pretty low in the scale of manhood, and we prefer to await results without casting any such serious imputation upon his motives. Nothing will now save the Republican party in this county but a better organization and a year,perhaps years, of hard and persistent work. The llu- ruiiLTCAN will do what it can for the party,and will stand right where it has always sto'od—right by .Republicanism through thick and thin. We would Tather be a doorkeeper in the llepubli- can party than a mugwump sheet like the U. D. M. Prohibition Prohibits. Our package men are probably unable to reconcile a few things with the way election went last week. Thursday morning the sheriff called on Mr. "Woods, at the old college building, armed with a search warrant and after taking possession of all the liquor to be found, he took possession of Mr. Woods. The State of Iowa had sixteen separate counts against Mr. Woods for violating the law since the date of the indictment of the grand jury. Mr. Sullivan, his attorney, proposed the following terms of settlement which were agreed to by County Attorney Mayne, and which were decidedly to the advantage of Mr. Woods. Mr. Woods pleaded guilty ' to the first count -and paid his fine of $50 and costs. The other counts were dismissed and his liquors returned. Mr. Woods' case which was to have come up in the December term of court is to be continued until a final decision upon the original package question is reached in the United States Supreme Court. If the validity of the Iowa prohibitory law is sustained Mr. Woods agrees to plead guilty to the charge contained in the indictment of the grand jury, and in the mean time to discontinue the original package business in Iowa. It is to be regretted that Mr. Woods was not given the full benefit of the law. The State of Iowa was not compelled to make terms with him' and he deserved no leniency on the part of the law. Mr. Alderman, the other package man, also fared much better than he deserved. He was arrested on eight different counts and pleaded guilty to the first two. In default of the money to pay his fine he has taken up quarters under the court house, and his wife is asking support at the charity of the county. Mr. Alderman's establishment has long been considered a disreputable place and it is a relief to know that it is closed up. The proprietor ought to be presented with a ball and chain and be given employment at laying the mains for the water works. ,_ ._..,_, ^ ^ £ ^ ^ _ _ , The Official Returns. trffi fcOtlHTY NEWS. Minx.

Smith Carlisle is still quite under the weather but under the treatment of our new physician, Dr. Felling, we hope to soon see him out. The following report of the official returns from 71 counties is taken from yesterday's Begister and is reliable: On secretary of state 71 counties reported. In these McFarland has 133,628, Chamberlin 133,300. Reports were received from 70 counties on the whole state ticket. Leaving out the one county, Clayton, McFarland has in the 70 counties from which full reports were received, 131,496, Chamberlin 129,863, McFarland's plurality 1,633. In the same counties Lyons 130,838 Witters, 130,106, Beeson 130,397, White 130,745 Stone 131,325, Mackey 129,612, llothrock 131,030, Wolfe 129,805, Pray 130,893, Sankey 130,025, Raymond 131,875, Ivory 129,793, Luke 129,792, Dey 130,861. The reported plurality in the remaining twenty nine counties, according to the unofficial returns made to the Register, will increase this 1,382, making McFarland's estimated plurality 3,151. This will be near the final figures beyond any reasonable doubt. All of the rest of the Republican state ticket is elected by from 2,000 to*8,000. the election of railroad commissioner is still in doubt and it will take the full returnes to settle it.

Everything in the business line goes on iineiy. Good prices for all farm products. We notice E. C. Tattle on our streets today. F. M.

Good time and an old fashioned New England supper for $1. Well, election is over and Algona did not get all the offices. Too bad for the candidates to be swamped. Why will men of principles who go to county conventions and unanimously nominate men for office knife them at the polls? Such has been done'and by those who have been supported by the G. O. P.

A The Wesley schools are goingonjflne- ly under the management of Prof* A. A. Sifert and Miss Pettibone. A/large attendance and all doing well. • It was a hot afternoon in the early part of lost week that two Omaha young men chanced to be spending the day at a f auo house on tho Missouri. They were lying on their backs iu the shade of sprue trees on tho banks of the yellowish river. "Do you see those two little mounds covered with grass and scarcely distinguishable?" said one to the other. "Yes; what are they, graves?" "They are, and thereby hangs a history of the territorial days of Nebraska." "The Tolsny and Richardson families lived in this neighborhood and owned adjoining farms or ranches, and were on terms of the most neighborly character. When their children grew up the young people of the two families were dependent upon each other for society. They varied the dull routine of rural life with dances and picnics and such innocent sports as suggested themselves to their rustic fancy, and though tho boys and girls lacked the accomplishments which adorn the young people of the present generation, they had their full share—the girls of beauty and the boys of that dash which makes even rustics acceptable in female society Julia Richardson, now in her 18th year, was a sparkling brunette, and could round up a herd of cattle with any of the boys. Jim Tolmy was a dashing cowboy of 22, who could jump his horse over a four rail fence and pick up a silver dollar off the grass while his steed was going at the rate of fifteen miles an hour. Tho two, James and Julia, had been equestrian rivals since childSiood, Julia insisting that she was the better horseman, so to say, of the two. Thus the children grew to a certain age when their manner to each other changed, when Julia no longer talked defiantly to James and challenged him to daring deeds of horsemanship, and when James felt shorn of all his dash •and bravery and was awkward, absent and timid iu the presence of Julia. Together and alone they were silent ami uncomfortable. It was only in company that James seemed to rally, and when Juiia, thinking nobody was watching, would lift her dark eyes from under their sweeping lashes and look with glowing admiration on her old jilaymate. But there is no use to dwell on the ardent though flickering omens of love. It is sufficient to say that James and Julia loved. Love is a passion which, however much and long it smolders, tods expression at last, and the longer it smolders the more abrupt and plainer will be the avowal. The avowal came. James was accepted and the young couple were happy. Their parents consented, but thought it better to defer the union for a year. When they were told of this determination James said: "Do you know I think my sister Belle and your brother Tom will get ahead of us if we don't hurry up?" "Tom!" she exclaimed; "why, the. gawk is ashamed to look at a girl!" "Never you mind, I see them often together." Thus the lovers confided in each other, and the young and old of both, families were happy in expectancy. But though a year woxild not be long in passing, as Julia said, still a year often brings many changes, especially in affairs of the heart. Twenty miles away Jived the Castleton fan>lly, where James in hunting for stray stock bad often called. Mabel Castleton was a beautiful girl, well born, accomplished and affable—a different type of beauty from Julia Richardson. She was fair and tall. The mustangs had been straying away very much of late in that direction from the Tolmy ranch. Of course JamSs would go in pursuit of them and call to Returning from the,int«ttnent of Btlle the Tokays and Castletons had, or pw- tMETOtd to have, oectttoo to paai the Richardson residence, They apprehending some such course had barricaded the hoiue and watched for the approach of the cavalcade. A desperate fight ensued, and among the first to fall was old Mr. Tolmy and two of the Caatleton boys. The Richardson residencS* was sot on fire, and the desperate fight grew fiercer and fiercer until the night mercifully came down and stopped it. Many on both sides were wounded and killed, but singularly eiiough the principals— James Tolmy and Tom Richardson—escaped without a scratch. After this the feud was quiet for some little time. Just at this stage of the conflict James Tolmy had occasion with his wife to visit the Castletons. He arose early and went for his horse; but an unusual thing had happened. The horse had broken the fence and strayed away. Ho tracked the animal a long distance, when, tired with his long morning walk, he seated himself to rest. He heard crackling leaves at his back, and thinking it was his horse turned round. He found himself face to face with his mortal enemy, Tom Richardson, carrying in hia hand a rifle. No alarm, no anger, was exhibited by either. "Are you heeled, Jim?" asked Richardson in a quiet sort of way. "Well, no, Tom," answered James just as quietly. "I forgot the shooter this morning." "Then I've got the dead wood on you." "So you have, Tom." "Do you take water, Jim?" "Oh, yes, Tom, I take water." "By-by, Jim." "So long, Tom," and they parted. A month later James Tolmy was again up early in the morning and strolled off in the direction of the Richardsons', but this time didn't forget his "shooter." Tom Richardson was milking his last cow. "You're a slow milker, Tom," he said, looking quietly over tho fence at his enemy. Tom looked up. "Yes," he replied calmly, "I am very slow this morning." "Are you 'heeled,' Tom?" softly asked tho other. "Well, no. You see the milking" "Then I've got the dead wood on you." "To be sure, Jim," heanswered lazily. "Do you take water, Tom?" "Oh, yes, Jim; I take water sometimes, like yourself." "Good morning, Tom." "So long, Jim." And the relentless foes once more separated. The feud had narrowed down to the two. A third time they both met, now on the banks of the Mis- soiiri, so there was water for both. This time they were both heeled; each had his loaded rifle. With hearts of lions, but stealthily as tigers, they approached each other slowly and cautiously. "Is there any water about?" asked Tolmy, in a bitts* irony. "Not a drop, Jin," was the ejisy reply, and they advanced a little closer. Quick as lightning Richardson raised his rifle, and fired Tolmy dropped, but ere death sealed his eyes forever lie raised las >yreapqn and lodged its contents in his enemy's heart. Both were found dead' next flay within fifteen yards of each- other. This was the end of the la'st act in tho domestic tragedy. But now a word of poor Julia. • Passionate in love she was inconsolable in grief,--and after the slaughter of the brother she had loved and of the lover she still adored died broken hearted. She was buried beside the grave of Belle, the intended of her brother. And these are the two little graves which are the indices of the story.— Cecil Hastings in Omaha World-Herald. -* BIG INVOICE -OF- CROGKERy, GLASSWARE AND LAMPS A?

In those frequent visits be and Mabel became attached to each other, when, faithless to his engagement and forgetful of the pretty Julia, he induced her to elope with him, and the first known of the affair was that they were married. Julia Richardson's feelings may be better imagined than described. She was slighted, she was betrayed and jealous rage fired her. The whole Richard- eon family felt outraged, and the Tol- mys, to do them justice, were scarcely leas painfully shocked. The false lover, knowing that such would be the result, kept discreetly out of the way for weeks, when, supposing both families to have cooled down, he visited his parents. When Tom Richardson heard of his arrival he rode over quietly toward the Tolnvy residence with a rifle at his saddle horn. As he approached he observed James and his sister together, and he hesitated how to act. Tolmy retreated inside, but soon reappeared, also with a rifle. Seeing this, Richardson raped his rifle. The act was repeated byTotoy. Both fired simultaneously and Belle drooped dead, pierced with the bullet intended for her brother. Frantic and appaJUed at having killed hia flanoee, Richardson gal- lepad away, filled with remorse and Prom many hundred rheumatics comes the welcome news that the Infallible Rheumatism Remedy is the best they ever used, for rheumatism of all kinds.
