The newspaper boys Imvo occasion t'j 10
Jolce with other people ovor tho selection of
1'rof. Cnulleld of Kansas as chancellor of tliu
University of Nebraska. The new chancel
lor greets nowspnper men with n cordial wel
come and volunteers the assurance that lio
appreciates the ower of the press nml means
to use It for the benefit of the university.
Ho has Riven the reortci h to understand
that ho will lio glad to nee them and to give
theiu all possible information about the uni
versity and its work. He even contemplate
having a hook in his private den upon which
to hang iiiuuiorandn of matters of intet est,
jottlug thcui down hastily as they occur and
thus giving the rcortei8 hints which they
may elaborate by making further Inquiry of
the chancellor. Too many men at the head
of public Institutions regard reporteis as
Paul Prys, usJnipectinent nuisances who are
to bo snubbed. Chancellor Cautleld fays the
state univeisity belongs to the jieoplo and
the people are entitled to all possible infor
mation about it, which he will aid In giving.
The new chancellor has made a good impres
sion on our people, and there is reason to lo
lleve that Aho .university will flourish under
his energetic rulo us It never has before.
Speaking of .the .University, are not the
big schools with which Lincoln Is blessed u
greater source of wealth and piosperity to
tbo city thou most ipeoplo lealfzei Lincoln
has grown to such it shru that there Is very
little apparent difference to most of us
whether tbo universities are in session or not,
but a little rejection teaches us that there
juust of necessity bo .considerable diffeieuco
to the city ua whole. For example, with
500 students drawn from outsldd we know
that they must dlsti ilmto among Lincoln peo
ple, a large mm of money every month for
board alone. Then there arc the Important
items of lodging, books and incidentals. It
is quite likely that many of tlio students,
coming from smaller places, improve, the ops
portuuity to by clothing while in Lincoln.
It will be readily admitted that the colleges
bring thousands of dollais to the Capital
City every year, and the money helps the
town quite Jis much as.though it were drawn
in by some commercial enterprise that kept
iUelf constantly in tho.publle eye by its ac
tivities on the street and in the papers.
Prof. Jlerrmau, the trick artist who has
wystliied tho world for thirty-live years,
has taken a loid off my .uilnd. For many
years we huvo read of .the marvelous feats of
the East Indian jugglers, until some of us
have almost been led to .think that they were
u"" , 7 ""; ,,.'" ,.
aided by some aupwuatu.al power. He nuan
has Investigated them and finds their art
crude instead of marvelous. In the first
place, lie was not able to Jlnd a juggler who
could throw a string into tho air and then
climb up It out of sight. He attributes
yarns of Uiat kind to the exaggeration of
credulous travelers. We have all lead of
tho Indian juggler who plants set-Is In u
flower pot, covers it with a cloth, makes
some incantations and then, removing the
cloth, revealsagrowlnginougoplant. When
Herrmon saw the trick done the juggler
wore a loose, flowuig suit, in .which he had
the muiiifo nlunt concealed. After working
ou the sujerstltious of the Indians he walked
around the pot and by sleight of hand sub
stituted tike mango plant, ut the same time
maintaining to the credulous onlooker that the
plant had grown there. Xu auothor instance
a juggler wearing nothing hut a breech clout
placed a cobra on the ground,covered it with
a cloth, went through his rJgamarole, raised
the cloth and the snake u'u gone. Uerriuan,
however, saw through the trick. At ono
point in the proceeding the Juggler beut ovor
and raised the cloth slightly as if to rear
range It. Tlie cobra, a trained reptile, un
derstood tlte signal and leaped into his breach
clout, where it lay out of light. Herruian
had thought of engaging an ludlau juggler
as an assistant, but after examining their
work he concluded they would not compare
with a good American artist. They have u
few tricks like those ineutioned, but they
never Invent anything new and their work
would not stand the test of critical American
Said a Beatrice man ill the city the other
day: "I would rather have stock in our
Chautauqua assembly than hi the Standard
Oil company." That was rather a startling
proposition, and when pressed for uu explan
ation he said: "Why, simply because it Is
(laying a big interest ou the investment.
Last year Tulmage preached a sermon here
one Sunday, and how many peoplo do you
think turned out to hoar him 1 Why, 35,000,"
he continued, without waiting for an an
swer. "I know that sounds big, but the tick
et sales showed the attendance, People came
from all parte of the state, and they just ate
up everything in town. Talmage got $500
for bis sermon, and you can figure the profit
for yourself. The admission was !M cents."
Dr. Talmage has remarkable drawing quali
ties, to use i theatrical term, and from a bus
iness standpoint his discourses are valuable In
proportion. Headers of the CouiUKH are
among tho fortunate oues to get noted ser
mons regularly. Each one of them, probably ,
Is quite as good as tho Beatrice effort, and It
costs the reades but a nickel, while ho may
enjoy it at their leisure and In comfort. It
U one of the features of tho Couiukr thojt
wins it many readers among the best people.
Probably no happier celebration of tho
glorious Fourth, tho national day of freedom,
can be found in Nebraska than the quiet, un
demonstrative celebration arranged by Uov,
Thayer. Under a law passed two years ago
he has pardoned two convicts, who go free
today. Both were sentenced for life. One
has been conlliied for twenty years and the
other for thirteen. It Is hard to conceive
how a man can be happier than one who es
capes a living death, but there Is little doubt
that the governor will get more genuine
pleasure out of his art of mercy than any
man over got out of tlio flr of 111 a work. It
surely mttt lw a happy day for pardoner
One thing seem to lie apparent lit connec
tion with the little street ear system. It Is
i mi by men who understand the business and
have the money to start it out in the way it
ought to go. Elcctrtu cars ari'i now running
on U stteet as well a Tenth, and other Hues
will bo electrlllod a soon its they can be
equipped. Hut one of the most notable
changes is the approaching arrangement of
the various lines ho that all the cars will go
around government square, Just as In Boston
all car lines radiate from Hcully square, In
New York from Howling Green and In Chi
cago, to a considerable extent, from State
and Madison titreots. This enables a jiemon
to go to n central point a catch a car going
in any direction, and is a groat convenience.
The late Ilrowu line lunulug out to Universi
ty Place lias Just been connected with the
main system near the Capital hotel, and is
already equipped with ulectrlclty. In n
few days It will lie jom,iblo to ride seven
miles for a nickel and without changing cars,
and the consolidation of tlio various com
panies gives Lincoln ono of the biggest and
(lnest street car systems of any city of its
size in the country.
Speaking of Boston, lb uir system is one
of the Institutions that will puzzle a stranger.
The writer once had occasion to take a car
from the Adam house and watched for one
to cQiuo along. Car after car witli tho prop
er label passed by but tlioy were all going in
tho wrong direction. Finally, in n lit of des
peration, he boarded one of them and tried
to solve the riddle by quizzing tho driver.
Yes, the car was going to the x)lut mention
ed, but it would take about all hour and a
half to get thoie, although it was not over a
flftoeiisiiilnute walk distant. Tho Boston
cars, or some of them at leust, travel around
a certain circuit and all uro headed the same
way, or w era at the time in question. Sup
pose tho University Placo lino were connect
ed with the Cottier university Hue, making a
complete circuit, and, In hqpe of some pa
troimge from Uethany.Uolghtlis, a banner
was hung out reading, "Tuta cur for the ball
game." A struugor stopping at the Capital
hotel, attracted by the banner, might natur
ally take that car If lie wanted to seo a ball
game. Well, be would get there, but you
can Imagine his fetlliigs after first traveling
to University Place and Bethany Heighths.
