Lincoln 1ms tlio legislature. All of yon
know (lint. Already there Is conipliiiiil that
It Is doing nothing. Homo of you Imvu hoard
Unit. Tliu HJiinu tiling occurred two yours
ago mid four years ago and six years ago ami
probably uwny buck to Uwrltorlul times.
Most (leoplonro well, I whs going "
fools, but tlint is ii luimli word nutl not liter
ary truo. Hut most hh)iK urn Ignorant on
koiiii) subjects unil thoughtless about a grout
ninny other. If they wore not they would
not innku such uiiri'asoiiabli complaints.
Now, this doesn't apply to the renders of
TlIK CotmiKii. They know that it takes a
week or ho lo get organized and ready for the
introduction of bills. They uuderHtand that
after u measure is Introduced It has to bo
read on two separate days and go to a com
mittee. Tho committee works in odd boms
and limy bo dobiytsl several days liefum
reaching any particular bill. Thou tho bill
comes back and goes Into tho committee of
tho whole to do discussed, torn to pieces and
patched up. Finally it reaches a vote and is
sent over to tho other house. Hy this time
that other house may Imvo two or three hun
dred bills under way. Their sponsors are
proud of them, and tho stranger from across
tho way must Uiko its turn which means after
being rond and put through Its coinmlttee it
may hung on tho cahiuder for two or thieo
weeks boforo its turn comes to be considered
and finally (Hissed and sent to the gnvoi nor.
The renders of Tiik CouitiKit also know that
there aro minor delays not enumerated above
that may keep an unfortunate measure on
tho hooks wet ks longer. Ill this way an Im
mense amount of preparatory work Is done,
and in tho course, of two mouths or so there
will bo a lot of bills awaiting tho final vote
that will either kill them or give tnem life.
Now, that's why a good nmny iguoiunt mid
thoughtless people set up tho cry alsmt
this stage In every session that tho legislature
is not doing anything. Knowing tho renders
ofTlli: CouniKll to be an intelligent class I
am sure they will agree with mo in tho opin
ion t lint beyond u certain limit tho less the
legislature does tho more valuable Its service,
tho more it fails to do tho letter for tho
Tiik Couhikh is in receipt of a communi
cation from a reader, and as the question
asked should receive proper attention at the
hands of the editor, It Is to be regretted that
owing to tho fact that no uiiiiio accompanied
Hie letter, wo must decline to answer same.
If tho lady or gentleman that wrote the com
munication will send their name to thlsolllco
not for publication, wo will take pleasure
in mu'clng note us requested in our next
After all, it seems the French really did
want to keep "The Angelas'1 at home, for
they have bought it back of tho American
purcluvers. Tho latter have carted It nltout
tho country, giving us ignoiant Amei leans
u chance to see its "religious atmosphere" and
"almost hear tho Ml ring." Tho American
owners made ii handsome Income, no doubt,

hypocrltlcnl lmvo u cliunco to say: "I saw

to poso as an art connoisseur Is worth tho
quarter or fifty cents that it cost, but many
of us doubtless condemned tho judgment of
tho during sjieculniors who paid $1111,000 for
ii bit of painted canvass not two feet square.
It will bo soothing to our national piidoto
knotv that tho enterprising Yankees lmvo
made n handsome profit III selling tho paint

such big fools after all.
Mny Johnny Crujieuti never repent of his

furnish something for m to talk about and our
nowspnors to write about. If tho public
will iermit a suggestion I would mention tho
wild mail of Horueo, his wife, her child, its
dog, tho dog's tail, the hair on tho tail and
tho flea in tho hair. Several hundred thous

mate acquaintance for years. Ho got fSI for
"Tho Augelus," and I have no doubt some
people think that was too much. Ho can do
the tiling over again in three or four dajs,
and twenty dollars a day is pretty good pay.
Of com so all that occurred years ago, but wo
of today aro too discerning to let such u gen
ius go undiscovered and unrewarded. Wo

for that buith. lieu Senator l'addock was

uncertain, to I si fiirc.
Nebraska has n great nmny wheelmen, but
her hykors seem lo Ims wilfully lacking In
frateual spirit. It requires how inaliy t
Only a hundred, Isn't It, l. A. W. mcmlicrs
to lmvo a stite organisation and a consul and

wo have contests between rival chilis ami

but nothing of tho sort ill wheeling. Why is
it i The Isiys ought to wake up. Hero ian

Contests between amateur athletes can be
made of great beiiellt outside the ssrtlug
element. Man Is a social animal, and one of
tho most satisfactory things In life is tho
knowing Interesting ieople. To a wheelman
other wheelmen from other cities with other
Ideas ought to bo interesting persons, and
after two or three annual reunions what a
host of good fellows one would come to know
and with a friendly spirit you would never
get from an ordinary acquaintance. Hoys,
think of it.
Iteildersof TllKCoiMIIKIl will recall Miss
Klfzahcth Hlslnud. I feel sure of this, be
cause, llrstly, Miss Illslanil attracted much
notice by her attempt to lcnt Nelly lily's
time going around the world, and, secondly,
Im'CUIIsuTuk Coi'llIKU at tle time published
a lino portrait of her that showed her to be a
beautiful young woman. Tlwu, again, those
who took advantage Inst year of our clubbing
otfer with tho CosiuoKilltau must have en
joyed her numerous nit Ides In that magazine,
of which she was the editor. And then too,
in an autograph tetter written a few days
after her return from tho circuit of thoglobe
she complimented TlIK Coi'llIKU on having
published iho best sketch of her that she had
found among hundreds sent to her. CouillKli
readeis doubtless will bo Intel ested In follow
ing tho career of this talented young lady.
On her famous tour she made some pleasant
acquaintances in Iondon, and some months
ago she ran over to make them a visit. It
seems to lmvo been n case of mutual admira
tion nt first sight. Miss Illslanil took a great
fancy to England and tho people have reel
rocatcd by taking this !oaiitlful young
American into their hearts and homes. Miss
Illslanil has taken lodgings In London and set
up a little establishment of her own, under
taking no end of social duties in addition to
her lltoiary work. .She may remain abroad
soino time, but Is writing a srlal story mid
Is turning out shorter articles that no doubt
will appear in tho Cosinoiolituu from time
to time.

Just a bit reckless just dashing enough to
give the onlooklug world to Understand that
hero Is woniaii who "can drive," You

Thai's tho kind I mean. Now down in Cin
cinnati twenty-llvo out of u total of thirty
live persons Injured on tliu streets during tho
month of December were run down by women
while riding or driving. Nino to one it was
the reckless carelessness of tho women tlmt
did it in a great majority of tho cases.
Tho electric street car continues to bo ii
curiosity. If you don't believe it go down to
the corner ot O and Thirteenth of a pleasant

make trips to North Lluco'n just for pleasure
and tho novelty of the thing. It Is n four
mliejtrip each way, mid carries ouo out upon
the hills where ho may lmvo a fluo view of
the country for.mllcsluall directions. To those
who do not already know it it is quite a sur
prise to observe that IjiicoIii Is located In n
great basin with hills rising above the tup of
tho Ilurr block on nil sides of her. And ho
will wonder, too, how so iniiiiy people over
came to build away out north there before
the present era of rapid transit. And ho may
lie mildly astonished at the number of nuw
homes under way in that distant suburb.
The foundation of the now Episcopal college
is well under way, and as It occupies a rise

around it.

The appeal fo tho women artists of all

of iiiutiy special dllllcultles that surround
tho pursuit of art as n profession for wom

brings lo mind tliu fact that one of tho
most prl.ed letters that Secretary I'luube

and minister plenipotentiary from Japan

Mr. Brousou Howard, it is said, has contriv
ed to drnumtlzo a story of tho war for tho
Union without Introducing any incident that
amight justly wound tho sensibilities of either
Not tlieruer or Southerner. Thu narrative of
iiuidents ami principal events related are of
tho bnttle-lleld. Tho hero and heroine aro
separated hy tho Hues of warfare, the heroine
Isiiug a Southern girl who is in love with it
Northern olllcer. Tho olllcer Is true to his
dig, true to his lovo, and, of courso, nil ends
happily. Hut boforo tho denouement the
young olllcer Is under suspicion of having
wronged tho pence of his commanding gen
eral, as there Is a villain iu tho drama who
throws doubt iih) ii woman's honor and
stabs his enemies in the buck. But there also
Is, to , a pathetic figure introduced iu tho
movements ot a misguided young man, who
wIk-s out tho stain of his youthful crime by
a daring deed f jr Ills country, which costs
him his life. Ho Is tho discarded sou of Oeu
eral Haverhill, and tho father stands by thu
grave, little thinking it is Ills own sou who
lies upon tho bier upon which his tears are
falling. Thure are details in ".Shenandoah"
that ui o said to Is) most original In design and
dramatic in expressed result. Mr. Howard's
dialogue throughout is described as bright,
forcible and telling, There aro numerous
light comisly scenes furnishisl that are an
agreeable relief to to the gloomy suggest Ioim
of carnage and strife. Everything possihlo
ha been donu to have tho production here as
complete as any the play has yot received.

"The plot tolls tho story of a child doserttsl

'The widow then doth try with nil her
