Homo people In Lincoln have been surprls
el by receiving telegrams written on n tyw
w rlter. This is coming to bo a very com
mon practice among Western Union os.'nt
tors. Tliey find several advantages In It. It
relieves them of thotetlliim of en work and
tho danger of finger paralysis. They txftjn
lenm to work a machine faster than they can
write, and tho Inci eased legibility is a gratl
f)ing thing to the receivers of the messages,
lift) now movement lias received Its highest
development among tho operators w ho take
tho telegraphic news for tho dally papers.
They have an enormous amount of work to
do within a short time, audits the ty-writer
Increases their capacity for receiving matter
n scheme lias lieen devised for increasing the
sender's caacity corrcsiond!iigly The
Western Union has arranged a code of ab
breviation?. Entire words Unit are used fre
quently are represented liy a single letter,
Just as in shorthand, and groups or two and
three woids are indicated by as many letters.
These single letters or combinations of let
ters are meaningless unless Interpreted by
tho code, so there Is very little danger of
making mistakes on account of their use.
The fastest and best ojierntors are used in
this service, and tho decrease in wear and
tear to the sender by using the code is u con
sidernblo Item. The use of tyewriters by
telegraphers is increasing very rapidly, and
tho time may come when every operator will
consider it a necessary tool in his business.
Travelers during the recent dry spell bad
abundant reuson to sigh: Oh, for u smoke
consumer on every locomotive and a sprlnks
ling tank on every cow catcher I It really Is
a singular thing that tho mauugers of Amer
ican nilhvajs do not adopt some device to do
awuy with the ubomiuutiou of smoke and
cinders fiom the locomotive. It is singulur
becauso they have sint millions of dollars
on other Improvements to enhuncu tho com
fort of passengers, but this greatest nuisuuee
of all goes on unhampered and apparently
without any effort to remedy it. On a line
between St. Paul and Minneapolis tho road
bed is sprinkled frequently during dusty
weather. It is a short lino of course, but wo
may live to see tho time when tho great rail
road systems will in similar manner luy the
dust on their main Hues, Stranger things
than that have come to pass in this enterpris
It Is an Interesting study to follow tho
series of incidents In tho lives of men that
dispel so them to all quarters of tho globe,
and it is no less curious, some times, to learn
the sequence of circumstances which carry
inanimate objects with historic associations
into distant and strange nooks. This train
of thought was suggested by a collection of
plates owned by a Nebraska gentlenmu.
During President Hayes' term tho govern
ment appiopriated 1 10,000 for a clilna ser
vice for tho Wlnto House. It was to consist
of four hundred pieces und the celebrated
Havilimd works of Franco were commission
ed to muko them. These dishes are not mere
ly of the finest Havllaml china but are beau
tifully decorated after designs by Theodore
H. Davis, tho American artist. A French
painter Mauprez, If I remember correctly
was sent to tho United States to study tlm
decorative objects selected by Mr. Davis and
make tho work thoroughly American in spii
It. Tho designs were characteristic of this
country and Mauprez painted them exquis
itely. In getting out the set Havilaud dupli
cated several plates. These extra pieces
were sent to Washington with tho set und
were presented to President and Mis. Hayes.
The Nebraska gentleman is a cousin of Mrs.
Hayes, ami during n visit witli her she pre
sented him witli one of tho dim er plates
mudo by Hnvlland for the White House. It
is decorated with n scene having a Rocky
mountain goat as its conspicuous figure.
The historical associations of tho plate, aside
from any ceramic or artistic value, made it a
souvenir which the Nebraskon ban cherished
through years. Since receiving it ho lias
called on Mauprez in Paris and found him
an artist who commanded $.100 for pitlutlug
nslmpl e poi trait.
After the work of this White House ser
vice wns well under way Havilaud figured up
the cost and found It would aggregate about
fao.OUO. Ho thereupon asked Undo .Sam, In
view of his prospective loss, for rmlssioii
to make a second set of the china for Ills own
use. The request was granted, and Havi
laud manufactured an exact duplicate in
every respect. He even put on Undo Sam's
crest, mi eagle worked in colors and burned it
into the china. After keeping those eight
years lie concluded they were too expensive
a luxury and dceided to sell them. Ho
divided tho four bundled pieces into small
sets, and these were sold to different Amei I
cans, the entlio lot bringing about 10,000.
The Nebraska gentleman referred to above
leui lied of the opportunity and bought a
game set consisting of a platter and a dozen
plates. Tho faces of theso dishes are bund
somely decorated with game, fowls mid it it i
nulls, nml on the under side of the rims Is
Undo Sam's crest.
This same gentleman has another collec
tion of plates made up of duplicates of those
used by Napoleon anil other loyal celebri
ties of EurojK'. Among them Is a plate thut
uctually belonged to tho service of Rudolph,
tho crown prince of Austria. Through the
influence of a friend at Vienna he gulued ac
cess co the prince's palace. Ho was ndliiii
iug the china, when the tiieud offeied to
pieseut him with it duplicate of one of the
plates. Tho Nehi askau prefei i ed having one
that had actually been in tho loyal set vice,
uud ho picked it up and can led It oil' under
bis coat. It was replaced by the triciid's du
plicate, and the prince's plate is now in a
cuse in fai -away Nebraska. In the center ol
this plate is Rudolph's moucigiaui in script
letters and burned in w ith gold. Tho rim Is
decorated with a delicate lattice work In an
exquisite shade of blue.
Seaklng of valuable, decorated china,
Mr. O. W. Lluihger,.the owner of Omaha's
art gallery has a collection which lie has put
to a strange use. He gathered pretty plates
until ho had ubout two hundred of them.
They were stacked up In one of his parlois
for reudy use, until the collection grew to
make tho room look like If shop. In fact
they became somewhat of it nuisance. Ho
conceived tho idea of using them to decorate
the dining room In his handsome home.
Visitors to that apartment now see those
plates arranged nbout tho top of the wall as
a frlere. Tho effect is pleasing, but much of
the beauty of the decoiatlons is lost becauo
of their distance from the observer Mr.
Llulnger needed several plates to complete
tho f rloro, nnd bought of a local dealer pieces
costing a dollar each. Some of his collection
cost liliu forty dollars apiece, but at tho dis
tance at which they are suspended an obser

Tho political campaign is In full blast, and
the fellow who turns up his nose at tho names
and descriptions in u Journal devoted to so
clety is around kicking like u government
mule If the dallies do not reort every detail
of every wnrd caucus, together with the
names of tho forty-seven wire-pullers whose
vunlty has been tickled with the empty
"honor" of a vice picsldency. Theio aio a
thousand men in Lincoln, any of whom
could till nlmost any of the political olllces,
but these petty patriots who cannot see be
yond their noses, Imagine that their efforts
in selecting candidates cuuso the world to
tip up in ainuzed admiration. It would
make no appreciable difference in the wel
fare or happiness of Nebraska people which
ever one of u hundred thousand uspii lug pol
iticians was governor, but the smull-oox Ig
noramuses think his selection is tho chief
concern of life.
The chief end and pursuit of mankind is
happiness. The fellow who finds his pleusure
in caucuses and saloons and on the street
corner ought to have sense enough not to
sneer at those who find gratification in other
pursuits, provided that they be innocent.
Hut he hasn't uud that's what gives mo that
tired feeling. The purpose of society is to
minister to tho happiness of its members.
What cull be more praiseworthy I Politic
ians expect tlie dailies to record all the gos
sip, all the trickeries, ull the meuunes-es, ull
the ambitions, ull the contemptible ersoiiul
ities of politics. Isn't it n pi oof of a nunow
mind when such it fellow pretends to sneer
ut a cleuu, decent uud wholesome paper de
voted to the amenities of society und home
life, a journal which generally finds some
thing to coniinvnd and rarely anything to
condemn I In short, isn't it ubout time fur
men in tho rough and tumble of business and
politlcul life to i eulizo that society is a big
fact uud that within reusonuble bound is to
bo approved uud encouraged!
