Lincoln, Nicukasica, Satuuday, Novicmuicw 14, ISOl.
Puioic Fivm Cunts
It seems Hint I made amlst-iko two weeks
ngo In a few conuncutsnlKiut social scuudnN.
The Inference I intended to convey wns tlmt
consclenclous editors publ Ished 8oii(iittoiinl
news of thnt kind lscnuso in doing it they
pcrfoiuidl n duty which they owed to the
public. Hut, ii h I xnld before, It seems that I
was mistaken. Two Lincoln papers which
Induce In that sort of thing seem to fool
hut t by the statement and resent It with snr
castle remarks. I am obliging, though, and
quite willing to except those two pnerB. I
will admit that It Is not a sense of duty to
thu couiinuiilty which luiolls them to revel
In scandalous stories, and I leave It to the
reading putiilc of Lincoln to draw its own
conclusions as to thu real reason. The. afore
said two papers iiulto unnecessarily throw
out Insinuations as to tho reasons for tho
Couitim not indulging in salacious rending,
but that made only one more display of their
lack of sense. Tho Couiukh has not under
taken tho job of reforming tho world and
consequently does not have to grovel In mor
al Hastiness. There is another nil sutllclotit
reason that should bo apparent to anyone
except able editors intent on saving their
community. Tho Couiueh is a class paper
with welt defined limitations, and these
smart "Journalists" might just as well throw
out their Insinuations about a n agricultural
or a sclcntlllo pajwr that doesn't indulge in
sensationalism. Tho fact remains that tho
Couiukh Is a clean, wholesome paper which
may bo taken into the most sacredly guard
ed homes without fear of olTouso or contami
nation, and u groat many good peoplo In
Lincoln nppicciuto that fact.
It is just thirty years since a Gorman
named l'hllllp Itelz exhibited a crude tele
phone, and now that wonderful Edison is
constructing a telephone to catch the noises
supposed to Ira going on in the sun. At first
blush this will strike tho averngo man as u
joko, but Edison never jokes. Ho is inter
ested in a company that owns some iron
mines In New Jersey. At ouo iolnt they
have discovered a body of ore a milo square
that probably goes down into thu earth tor n
long distance Edison i using this as tho ba
sis of his great telephone. Ho is winding
many milo of copper wiro about It, which
will In due time lie supplied with u (wwerf ill
electric current. After llttiug it up with an
immense diaphragm ho hopes to catch and
register tho noises made by tho explosions
supKsed to bo golug on in tho sun. It is
noticeable about KJIson that ho is not a
boaster and does not make promises that ho
cannot fulfill In this cuso ho has inado no
promises, but thu meio fact that ho has gouo
to an expense of hundreds of dollars on the
experiment shows that ho has strong hopes of
success. Of course there may be no such
noises in tho sun as tho theorists imagine,
and even If there are there may bo no other
in outer spaces for tho transmission of the
sound waves to tho oai tit. So, even if Edi
son fails, it doesn't prove that his mammoth
telephone win not n successful machine.
Wlillo away from tho city tho other day I
met a geutlemau who had recently visited
Lincoln Of course I praised tho capital
city for iU beauty, Its prosperity and its
possession of nil .metropolitan conveniences,
but what was my surprise to have thu stran
ger turn on mo with tho remark: "Well, you
haven't got uny water nt Lincoln." When 1
demanded an explanation of such a bold
statement as that ho said: "Why, some of
your jicoplo told mo that water was so scuico
that thoro is constant danger of your not
having enough in your water wot kg in the
event of a big lire." Of com so ono has to
pity tho ignorance of a person who gets a
wrong impulsion like that, but ft suggests
another thought. Why should Lincoln peo
ple defame their fair city by talking that
sort of thing to a stranger) Even if It were
truo it would seem as though ordinary sense
and local pride would keep a resident from
starting a harmful impression that may bo
carried hundreds of miles and be disseminat
ed among scores of people.
We wero talking about Kurox.'un tours
the other day when one of tho party express
ed a desire to spend two whole months in
Home. My friend Quiz turned upon the
speaker and In a tone tinged with pity ox
claimed: "Two months! Why man, you
want at least six to do Home. 1 huvo no pa
tience with these Cook tourists who go pranc
ing through Europe on thu rush, doing Lou
don in a day, l'aris in two, Home in a week
and tho whole continent in sixty days. Why,
in Italy they are looked upon with contempt.
They are sent away up into thu attic rooms
at tho hotels, and as tliuy pass along tho na
tives ridicule them. Cook's tourists have a
mighty poor standing in Euroo, I can tell
you. If ieople can't take more time for
EurojM) they had better stay at homo." And
then hu enlarged on this proHsltiou with as
fierceness that would have daunted n timid
tourist of thu b"i't hu was lampooning.
Now tho trouble with this ordinarily good
fellow was that ho took a wrong view of
life. In thu llrst place It was his good for
tune to spend several years of his young man
hood In Europe at an age when impiessious
are lasting and when ho was enabled to en
joy tho sights and sensations with tho keen
est zest. Of course hu could not understand
thu Intense longing of other Anieiicans to
whom a tour of Europe has been a dream
and for years an elusive one. Then theie is
another class of peoplo w ho rail at Inn i K'd
foielgu trips and announce that they would
not uudeitaku such journeys unless they
could do It at leisure and hi style. In too
many instances it is u case of sour graKH,
They belong to the clusi of soplu who decry
an educational course short of a college de
gree. It strikes mo that this soit of criti
cism is unreasonable anil uncalled for. For
people who have thu tliuu mid the menus to
do Etiniu lelsuiely Cook's tours may not bo
approved, but there are thousands who mutt
make a hurried trip or none nt all. I say
take It while tho chance Is own, A few
weeks later circumstances may make it im
Itosslhlo. It Is ono of thu few satisfactions
that such eoplo get out of life. And these
superior Mugs who would never do any
thing except Ukii n gi and scale might turn
their sarcasm on somo subject In need of It.
There are many peoplo In Lincoln that
have expressed a desire to know something
nbout "Credit limine." Its synopsis, scenes
of tho piny, where tho plot Is laid, etc. It
was with the Idea of sa tlsfylng Itself mid its
readers that a letter was sent from the
COUIUKH olllce last week addressed to Halt
Iaku City asking for a brief description of
the play mid its origin. Miss Lillian Lewis
gives the following account of the home of
Lcnora do Cnstlglloul, the heroine In-. Mars
ton's play, "Credit Lorraine." "First you
must understand that "Credit Lorraine" is
founded on facts In the life of Leiioru the
p.trt which I play. IMioru do Castlglloul Is
l ho name and of tho character and also thu
woman whose life, it represents, and whose
nrcer from 1851 to ItitW, or rather to the
battle of Hcdam, was nu Important factor in
the overthrow of tho monarchlal regime
of Napoleon III. Eugene Is jealous.
That one-half of the male French population
was in lovo with her from Court Horeco de
Vlel Castel (who since in his memoirs has ter
ribly reviled hoi) down, I thoroughly bellovo.
That tho entire female population envied her
I nlso believe. Hhe Is today living on tho
corner of Hue do la l'alx and l'laco Vonclomo,
alone In misery and wretchedness. This sii
blimely beautiful creatine, whoso pnluce was
tho wonder of France, lives today in daik
ness mid solitude. Tim palace she lived in
near Autervlllo was the gift of tho cmjicrDr.
mis sue sun owns aim an ner income is :e
voted to tin keeping up of tho enchanted
garden, n gullstuu, ii paradise on u space of
three acres, three hundred thousand francs
have been spent. An old house that was sit
nated in tho center of tho garden has been
partly pulled down and transformed Into a
Igrotto.Heavy I'ersinu ahd Turkoman rugs
nic piled upon the floor. A largo window,
with Its blind oj matting partly pulled down,
frames as pretty u plcturoof mountain slojcj
valley as It is Ksihlo to imagine. With tliu
sun shilling it is a glory of golden light of
yellow haw. Among lleutlng, fleecy clouds,
it is as if the sky had opened and one wero
catching glimpses of the blessed abodes.
Over tho walls of tho grotto rose bushes
have been trained; not one, but a dozen
varieties. There aro so many of them that
they make a solid wall of flowers. Nature
once fostered Into stronger life hits been
judiciously left to do (ho rest. Thoro aro no
Newport baskets, no fttnturtio designs in
parterres, no carpet patterns and no mono

takes place In tho mirror salon or the Castl

a photograph of La Castigliuui in I'm is, mid
went at once to Worth to have the dress she
wore repi educed exact in every particular.
I ware that in the llrst act. If you ever

".Miss Helyett, a three-act owivttn by Ed
mund Atidran, words by Maximo llouehoron,
was llrst produced at the llouiros-I'nrlslonsnt
l'aris, November i, 18IKI, ami was so success
ful that It Is still i mining there. The llrst
English erslon adapted by F. C. Iliirnaud
was done in tandou, July '1, 18111, and is
still running at the Criterion. On Tuesday
Mr. David ilelasco'sAineileanlzatlon, retain
ing tho original title, made quite as big a
siiecf.sN as It did either in l'aris or Indoii.
The story of the play, as told by Mr. llelas
co Is very droll and nt tho same time pretty.
Tho place is n tourists' resort In the I'yren
lies Helyett Hinlthson, an American Qiia
keress, with deniuro manners but roguelsh
tendencies, is theie with her austere father.

they soon have on hand aillirercnt mission of
their own. That Is tho quest of the man who
although they don't know him, is the only
man on earth who Helyett ought to marry.
This conceit Is what gives oddity to tliecomo
ly. The girl goes out for n mountain wnl't
alone, and kh.u returns to tell that she tum

a branch of a tree, where she hulig misdciiiI

his sketch Ismk, besides keeping It vivid in
his mind. He Is an Ameilcan iiud a former
