A N'oblt Judge.
Nebraska linn a jn1?f of rme of
Imr district court wlio should re
odre Iht prayers of the unfortunate.
Al R recent session of I ho court at
Broken lkw. Judge I lamer gave
tlw Mortgage-holders a very binek
oye by tufusing the foreclosure of
ftfinftthtrif tnortgagr. His reason
fur doing so he gave as follows:
"Thi docket is covered, page for
ifc with confirmation cases. The
Inst summer's drouth has exhausted
ilje farmers' resource and h is un
able to jwv the interest on his loans.
Tito act of (od, for which jieople
ant not rcMnt-il!. has reduced
one half of them to almoH l gj;arv,
ami this calamity shall not l.c made
worse by any act of mine. We are
nsfcwl to turn Hs fanners over to
money-lenders, and iVM women ami
children to pauperism. It shall
iwver lie done in tlii district while
I ni judge. The jtcople are not
able to pay and I will not assist in
their being roblied. Let us wait
until a crop can le miscd and con
fidence restored, and all will come
mil right. If a man is living on his
land or living off of it, ami trying
Io cultivate, lie should have the re
ward of his laUir. I will never con
firm a ftilc in times like these, if the
owner is trying to make a living on
thu land. When the jKople are
compelled to ask aid to procure
seed it would be cruel mockery to
deprive, them of land to sow the
seed ujion. I have a right to refuse
lo conlirm a sale when the property
mid does not bring two-thirds of it
actual value, and in these capes it
lias not brought that amount. The
H.ilea are not confirmed,"
So long as the I alanre of trade is
ill favor of the United States there
ia no fear of bankruptcy. If there
was no such a thing as silver and
gold, as a medium of exchange; if
1 1 10 people would discard the use of
both the riches, the real wealth is
hero still, tiuld is not wealth, nor
Hilvcr, nor any other money. They
inorely represent the accumulation
of i-omelhing already produced, un
less in the ease of the mine owner,
lie is simply wealthy because the
pontile recogni.e that metal ih a
medium of exchange. After all it
is thu ic:ple that reeoguie its pur
chasing Mwer that makes gold mon
ey, that makes any metal money.
So if the people of the United States
find thu medium of exchange such
as to bo cramd what difference
does it make if they dtcide it ex
pedient to issue, or to recognize
uiuro "exchange" money? What
difference need it make what that
"exchange" consists, if the govern
ment tho piople recognuo and

The bill prohibiting aliens from
owning lands in Kansas is now a
law of the stale. It provides that
all alien owners must sell their land
within five years or itcoome citizens
of tho I'nited Stales. In case they
fail to do either, their lauds will lie
told, and after payment of costs the
proceeds will !o debited in the
state treasury subject to the order
of tho alien owners. The large
amount of land this righteous law
will put on the market Hill be aston
ishing to those who have not given
thu mailer much attention. One
man alone, Lord S. ully.owns nliout
I! I,(KX) ncies of land in Kansas.

he withdrew his arm and resumed
his seal at the other end of the sofa.
In an instant tho pretty girl said:
"Oh, I thought you were braver

but she likewise threatened to
