They wero talking nlout luck mid tlio part
it plays In men's fortunes wlien one I elated
tlio experience of n former Llncoltilto. ilu
came from Falls City, or soiuowhero down
in that country mid got a clerkship under
Captain It. O. Phillips In tlio laud depart
nicntof the JJ..& M. tils salary was llfty
dollars a month and ho hnd to hunt out tlio
chenct chophouses in town In order to
ninko both -ends nuot. Tho .fellow evident
ly had something lu him, for when tlio lUir
lingtou located now towns ho got onto tlio
choice lots and Rave a tip to n moneyed
friend whom ho hnd jierHUmled to go Into tlio
scheme. They bought up cholco lots and re
sold them. It was not such a very long
time beforo this youtig follow had cleaned up
$6000. He pulled out of the railroad ollloo
and put his jnonoy Into a bank lu Colorado.
Then he went to Omaha, and having studied
law beforo coining to Lincoln, ho went Into
an abstract business. In the course of his
labors in that lino he discovered koiiio defec
tive titles and lila scheme to get hold of
claims against the property. Then ho en
gaged a lawyer to jiroseeuto his claims.
While this litigation was In prog re 1 ho took
a notion to go to South .America. He told
out bis bank stock in Colorado, salted down
his cash and left Omaha for Brazil or Argen
tine Ilepubllc. A short time ago his wilt
came to trial and his attorney won.it. Jly
that victory he is said to have conic Into
property worth (25,000, but strange to say,
bis whereabouts are unknown. Now the
question is, how much luck and how much
shrewdness, energy, and executive ability
was there in tills young fellow's case!
Shaking of Now Mexico wo were the
other day, you know recalls an Instance of
the curious meetings and vleUsltudes of life.
If you wero to take four youne men, all
friends and living in Lincoln, send them to
d IITe rent states to engage In business and
then ask, "Where ore these young follows
likely to meet again!" you would hardly
expect It to be eight or ten years later in a
little, outrof-the way New Mexico town, ono
tlilrd American and tw o-Uiirds Indian. And
yet, such are the straugo Interweavlngs of
life threads, that this actually occunvd sev
eral years agoat Socorro.
The four young men lived In a .New York
town. A chain of circumstances took, ono of
them Into the newspaper business iuJowa.
He sold out and took advantage of his
freedom to do the southwest, dropping off at
Socorro to see an old friend. Another had
inherited a small fortune, moved to u city
and engaged in manufacturing. He went
out to Socorro at the suggestion of a relative
to look at the Magdalene mines with a view
to investing some money in the industry.
The thiid had gone to the United Btates of
Columbia as an employee of one of our
consuls. After threo yearn In South Ameri
ca ho returned to the United Btates, studied
law and, concluding to woke use ot his
Spanish, located at Slcorro. I he fourth .was
the sou of tlio rich man of the town. Ho
ran away from home aivdciitheveial years
herding sheep in Colorado and otherwise
roughing it. In some unexplained manner
ho discovered an illegitimate son nf Ids fath
er and, singularly enough, they became part
ners In their western life. They started
down into New Mexico looking up and locat
ing water privileges. Water is scaroo in
that territory, and the owner of a good
spring may control miles of adjacent land
for grazing, because there may bo no other
stream or spring anywhere near to water tlio
cattle ot a rival ranchman. Men made a
business of locating springs, then taki'.ig up
a government claim and helling it as a water
privilege. One day these straugely muted
boys ran out of provisions, and the illegiti
mate son started for Socorio for a new sup
ply. When within a mile of town, in climb
ing into the carriage his gun trigger got
caught, the piece was discharged and ho
wds killed. Several days after he wan bur
ied a courier found the other brother and
brought him to town.
Like most of those old towns in the south
west, Socorro has an open square or plaza,
and there, on a bright April morning, these
four young men, after years of separation,
were brought together by the rates. For an
hour they reveled in the joys of boyish rem
iniscence, and then some of them started for
the mines. Tho four havo never come to
gether bIiico, The lawyer achieved fume and
fortune, but died a short tluio ago. Among
bis surviving relatives is a sister now living
in Lincoln and prominent in the work of
tho Church of tho Holy Trinity. Tlio prodl
gul son's father died mid left him $150,000.
Tho prodigal son returned homo and squan
dered his fortune lu less than three years.
Ho also died u shoit time- ago. Circum
stances, some no less odd tliun thofo related
above, have brought tho other two young
men to be residents of Lincoln. Whut a
curious thing life Is after all I
"What makes Lincoln grow J" lj a poien
nial question. Tho mail of whom it Is asked
generally gives It up as an iusolvable riddle,
and tho other fellow usually continues in a
tone of conclusive discouragement. "You
don't seem to havo much manufacturing
here". Then the citl.en admits with an air
of conciliation' "No, we haven't," and niajlsj
he admits, in a tono of mingled apology mid
helplessness, "but she gums just tho samu."
Throughout tho dhcusslon of tho giowth of
Lincoln runs tho core of a very common
Idea: that u town cannot grow viithout fan
toiles, and because tho Capital City lias fow
largo miinufiict urlng Institutions people pio
fesB to lw mystified tit it glow th niul doubt
ful of Its stability. Tim tact of tho matter
Is, this factory Idea has been very much
ovei rated. People w ho have como from tho
far east can recall manufacturing tow us and
vciy fow of tliein are large. Tho cities of
over 50,000 that havo been built up almost
exclusively on manufacturing enterprises
can bo counted on the lingers of two hands
or very near it.
It Is a big factory that employs a bundled
hands, mid It takes ten such to make a thou
sand employees. I havo in mind a town
with u big Industrial shop that employed
about a thousand . There wero no women or
girls and very fow young bays, nnd yet tlio
population of that town was loss than I, INN),
If Lincoln had ten factories each with u
hundred employees, or live shops with two
hundred each, wo probably would brag
about our great manufacturing Industry
and Imagine wo had discovered tho secret of
Lincoln's progress. Of course factories help,
but their Importance as population-producing
factors has lieen greatly overrated.
This Is proved by tli9 grow th of Nebraska
cities. Shohas some healthy children, but,
with tho exception of Omaha, none of them
owe very much to manufacturing. Now
this article is not Intended to discourage tho
planting of now factories in Lincoln; It is
only to calm tho fears efisomo good jusiplo
who imagine that our municipal salvation
dopends on tho capturing of a few factories
employing jiorhaps threo or four hundred
Homo very wlso people assure us that bac
carat should be pronounced as though spoiled
h-a-k-a r-a-w. The easiest way for a man to
appear learned Is to get n littlo smattering
of mythology, tho most utterly useless knowl
edge over crammed Into human crinlunn,
and air It on occasion. About tho next
easiest method is to load up with a few for
clgu phrases or got the original pronunciation
of a fow foreign wonts and thou shoot them
off at tho common herd whenever opportun
ity offers. One of tho (tottlest displays of egot
ism is this H)tty one of pedants to Impose Uion
the world with their potty knowledge to hldo
their colossal ignorance. If one nttempts to
give tlio native pronunciation of the thou
sands of foreign words adopted Into the Eng
lish he will have n job on hand that would
batllo tho traditional Philadelphia lawyer.
.Richard Grant White and Max Mailer as
sure us that the tendency of tho English lan
guage is to simplify itsnif, mid in the matter
of foreign words it is usuusibloaiid consistent
rule to anglicise them whenever it can well
be done. Instead of getting tho French or
Chinese twist ou words wo adopt from their
languages, let our teachers, as far as practl
cable, commend the practice of pronouncing
tliem according to the English siielling. lu
stead of piling up dilllcultlos, tho people who
imagine the fate of the English language Is
entrusted to their keeping should use all
reasonable efforts to simplify it.
After all, the best way to know tho real
merit of Hood's Sarsaparllla, Is to try it

J. H. Haiilkv. Druggist, Lincoln, Neb.
Ilulty U Kick.
The woeful oxprcstilou of a Dos Moines
teamster's countenance showed his deep anx
iety was not entirely without cause, when ho
enquired of a druggist of tho same city what
was best to give a baby for a cold. It was
not. necowary for him to say more, his coun
tenance showed that the H)t of tho family, if
not tho Idol of his life was in distress. "Wo
glyo our baby Chamberlain's Cough Remedy"
wns tho druggists answer. "I don't like to
give tho baby such strong medicine," said tho
teamster. "You know John Olesoti. of the
Wnttors-Talbot I'rliitlmr Co.. don't vouf" en-
quired the druggist. "His baby when eigh
teen months old, got hold of u bottle of Cham
berlalirs Cough Remedy and drank tho whole
of it. Of courso It made tho babv vomit
very freely but did not Injure It lu tho least.
and what Is nmro, It cured tho baby's cold.
It is not necessary to give poisons to cine a
cold or for croup either." Tho teamster
already knew tho value of tho Remedy, hav
ing used It himself, and was now satlslled
thnt there was no danger In giving it oven to

J. A, Chain, Esq.,
Dear Sir: Replying to yours of tho (ith
instant, I beg to say I havo not had occasion
to call at tho springs since I last saw you
with reference to this valley ns a natural
baiiltarsum, I can truly say I know of no
sot on the American continent which would
be a fair comparison with it and I doubt If
thero is a place in this country or Europe
where asthmatic cases get such speedy nnd
certain relief. While tho hot android min
eral springs have stored In them u panacea
for many of the so called Incurable ailments
that allllct tho human foully luallpaits of
the world. Tho waters of tho Hiiena Vista
hot springs. If properly applied will not fall
to give speedy relief lu nearly all kinds of
skill diseases', catarrh, acute bronchitis, joint
and muscular rheumatism, and dysiepsia.
An anal) sis of the water I could not give at
present. There ure several springs of var
ious kinds mid teniiernturu in the glen iiIkjvo
the house. To pioperly develop these
spiiugsaud thou let t.io population of the
United .States know what 1 know about
them, there would nut Imj room lu flveyema
