Its way to tho center tnb'e of nearly every re
fined homo In Lincoln n fact which Is more
appreciated by tho Judicious advertiser, and
tho public over that of tho soenllod "largest
circulation" vi)er8. Tho steady Increase in
our Mibscrlptlou department is cei titlnly very
gratifying nnd coming as tho favors do, from
among our very best circles, It Is clearly ovl
dont that our aim to plnco for our constitu
ent a clean, (.ploy jiaiier, devoid of all sensa
tional or scandalous matter, is dully appro,
elated by tho refined clashes. Fathers read
tho paor weekly, welcoming it after reading
tho Mush of politics, murders, scandals etc.,
thoy read every day In tho dally press, nnd
find t-ollef on Sunday to read matters of gen
eral interest nnd food for thought in these
columns. I do not say this with egotism nnd
it takes but tho moments thought of n fair
inlndod person to agree with mo. After per
using tho paper tho head of tho family lays
The Couiukii on tho center tnblo for tho
gentle wlfo nnd innocent young ones to lead,
knowing that no harm can comu from such
pastime but much good, as no indecent mat

tho mind of thoso near nnd dear Look on
tho other sldo nnd tako up tho dally jwijier.
It is full of news regarding vlco, debauchery,
crimo etc. Tho sensations and scandals of tho
day nro brought beforo tha eyo in liircii and
glaring letters. Can such reading bo conduc
ive to tho welfare of tho tender and Miccppt
nblo minds of tho much loved fnmlly clrelo?
Certainly not, Tho young mind Is ready to
grasp nt anything now nnd fiom a continu
ous rending of tho dally patters of todav.
many a bright child receives IU first Ideas of
wrong. Thoy nro certlonly worts) thnu tho
yellow iinck novo, in as much us thoy only
treat, as a rule, of daring adventure, while
combined with this tho dally press takes up
and polntu In glaring colors, every unsavory
scandal it hears of and very often much that
it imagines It hoars. Fathers and mother do
generally do not think seriously enough on
mis sutiiect and yet It is one of tho most I in
porumt. Parent should watch this matter
and If thoy will but stop to think of nil the
slush in the press of today, I nm Biiro they

A few nights ago n bald-headed man led
mnn who lives In East Lincoln was urottsed
from a deep slumlier by the aggrceslvo nudg
ing or the wlfo nt his elbow. Bhosnld, "Histr
nnd told him sho heard tho cries of n baby
which, sho thought, had been left on their
front steps. The sleepy husband attuned his
drowsy ear nnd confessed tlmthodld heor tho
wailing of nil Infant Then ho sneaked out
of the wnrni bed nnd paddled across tho cold
floor in his bare feet, raised tho front window
nnd projected tho upper half of his person
out Into the night. When ho brought it buck
Into tho room ho said ho could seo no baby on
tholr steps, but saw somothlng white on tho
stei across tho way. Ho thought tho found
ling was over thoro. His wlfo bogged him
for tho sake of humnnlly to don his trousers
nnd go over to tho child's rescue. "I will" lo
said, starting for his clothes, "If you will
promise fnlthfully not to adopt tho kid." The
promise was given. Tim bald-headed man
went over tho wny and hunted high nnd low
for tho llttel stranger. No joungstor could
be found. As soon as ho 8tepcd outside of
Ills door tho crying stopped. No trnco of n
wailing child was upiwirent. Ho wont back
to his wlfo and snid ho thought it was a cat.
She proU.-sU.sl to him that she know n child's
cry when sho heard it, and now the couple
think thei els n ghostly kid haunting their
precinct of the Sixth ward.
Hero Is a truo story of a lucky Chicago girl.
She is employed as tho motive jxwer of a
tyjiowrlter In n State steer ofllco, nnd early
last month shu and ono of her fellow girls
chlpiHxi Inn half-dollar each and Invested in
c lottery ticket. Typewriter No. 1 liee.ime
tho custodian of the ticket nnd carefully Hied
It away in one of tho Imieitnost iccess of her
purse. A fewdas befoiotho drawing sho
accidentally uropiicii tins purse, it contain
ed something like eight dollars in cash, ami,
as sho vvotked for n small salary, she mourn
ed the loss deeply. She advertised for It, but
without result. Tho loss of the lottery ticket
in the Inueimoat recess did not worry hor Un
til a few days after the drawing. Then her
pattnor, who Imdmudon noUiof tho ticket's
numlwr, obtained n list of the prizes nnd dis
covered that tho ticket had draw $ 15,000. As
boon ns sho learned this tyew liter No. 1 went
to the central police station and lepoitcd her
loss. Tho lottery jieople hero wei e ad vised of
the circumstances and they Immediately tolo
graphed to stop imyincnt on tho number.
Some da a later a detective detailed on thu
caso turned up the pockotbook and ticket. A
mnn who had attempted to cash it was unb
bod, but as ho declared ho hud found tho
ticket ho Mas not detained after he had given
it up. The two tyjiowrlter gli Is have l delv

reward, but ho refused to Uike anything ex
cepting a $10 gold piece as a souvenir.
