An employe con nected with ono of tho best known mid pay ing systems 111 Iowa has written n letter to that journal. lie has served ns brakesman niul coiuliictor, lms given ((owl anil faithful service mul boars letters of tho highest re commendations from tho oIlhliiN. Ijist Hep tetnlier ho wns dug out of u terrible freight wreck, caused by a broken truck, with In juries that unfitted him for labor for threo months. In December, although still renlly unable for duty, ho reported for his "train being it mnn of family and feeling that ho must lie doing for them. Instead of replac ing him tho superintendent, gave him the llattering letters of recommendation and In formed him that tho company could not again accept his services ns it was supersti tious about men who got hurt In wrecks a second or third tlmo and makes It a rule to dismiss them before they get killed! It hap Iened In this man's case to bo tho second or third time ho had got hurt, but through no neglect or fault of his own, as his service bad been without a Haw. He lion now been nearly six months without work or a salary nnd is on tho verge of despondency. There Is no question nbout tho utter soullessness of corporations when it case llko this is laid bnro. showing n contemptible cringing to silly superstitions. Aud this Is the nineteenth century about tho enlightenment, refinement mid culture of which we hear so inuchj "If you don't prnctlco what you preach who will believe in your consistency!" This was a question I put to n man tho other evening who was loud In his talk about building up Lincoln, but wns Inclined to send to Chicago In a sly wny when ho wanted mi article which could be hail in our own city for about tho same price. Everyone who holds up Lincoln, her stores, her fao toi les, is benelltlng himself directly or In directly. Everyone who falls to do so In disloyal to our city mid citizens. A rigid rule to patroulzo our own people and a strict living up to it will do more good than moneyed men wiio como here and invest In property, allowing it to remain idle year after year in order to reap tho harvest of its advancement, (live your manufacturers llvlngprlces and home patronage; if you wish them to eke out a miserable existence send the money you should pay them to en rich some eastern firm, which cares nothing for you except the money it draws from you, and thus assist in your efforts to destroy your own city manufactures, insurance com panies and other institutions. A few years ngo a green country boy ap pealed to the superintendent of a western railway for work, aud, somewhat against the superintendent's wish, on account of the danger to lffo and limb attendant upon such occupation, was given it place as breiikinati of it freight train. On one of his first trips it happened that his train met another freight train at it station wliero the side track was not long enough to accommodate, either of them. Tho conductors were debat ing which train should back up to a point where they could nsst when the now hand ventured to suggest that neither should go back; that they could pass each other by meuns of the short sidetrack if the thing were managed right. The idea excited a good deal of laughter on tho part of the old trainmen, but the boy stood his ground. "Well, how would you go aliout Itl" asked ono of the conductors, conllileut that the lad would coon find himself up n stump. The boy took up a stick and traced in the sand a diagram to illustrate his plan. "Good grueloiul" snld the conductor, "I believe that will do itl" And it did do it. To-day every train-man in America probably knows how to "saw by two long trains on n short side track, but it is not so generally known that the thing was never done until an inexperienced country boy, who Is now the manuger of it great railway Hue, worked Jout the problem for himself. Hotel holocausts continue, to spasmodical ly horrify tho people of tho United States and yet nothing Is done by congress nor any municipality to eirectuully exterminate these awful jtossibilitles. There is not a largo city in tho land but contains one or more old-fashioned inns or hulks thatnre veritable human fire-traps, without escapes by exter lor ladders or rope drois. New York mid Chlctigo huvo dozens of old hotels like tho gutted Royal mid its chnriml pit. The only wonder is that more of them do not bnru up mid cremate scores of occupunts. Blnce municipalities everywhere are criminally indifferent us to tho existance of thse coin bust able and escapoless hulks, congress ought to come to the rescue of the general publia with stipulations that will bring cities mid hotel keeers to their senses by eualtie8 em bracing confiscation and imprisonment. At least a half a dczen more hotels on Droud way,JNew York, are destined to (pass into history as human crematories llko tho Ill fated Royal. Is there any city of from 1,000. 000 down to 60,000 Mpulation that can boast of being without a hotel holocaust trap! V Virtue Is its own reward by a good round majority. Tho oyster of tho church social has beeu fished after aud nto on the spot, whenever found and vilified by the press be cause of their fewness, in such a manner as to causo this shrinking little bivalve to lie como smaller and Bimller each season. Hut now comes a story from Now York which should put every woman who helps support it church by her gastronomlcal powers on vs tho look out, for who knows but it may next hnpcu in Lincoln! A lady at nn oyster supjier at ono of tho churches in Now York, whllo eating nil oyster from the half shell, stiuck n bard substance which sho Blip posod to bo n piece of nn oyster shell, but on examination It was found to bo it pearl of large slzo, worth, ns u Jeweler who was present stated, about $2,500, on account of its jierfeot formation, size nnd color. There are many iteople who would bo will ing to have such peurlij cast before them nnd if such results could often bo brought nbout, church oyster suppers would .grow In favor east ami west. The mlleago book of the immedinto future is not unlikely to bo Illustrated with tho pho tograph of the purchaser. The misuse and cheating by scalpers hits gone to such mi ex tent that the railways claim there is no other alternative for them to choose. Already the Chicago & Eastern Illinois has issued an or dcrforbiddlngauymiileai;o books to bo sold on that system until mounted with it photograph of tho purchaser taken on tho sjtot with it kodak or sullied from tho party's photo grapher. Tho photograph ticket or mileage book, if generally adopted, will prove a dis astrous Uow to the seal wr s everywhere if indeed it does not largely exterminate tlium. Tliero will of course be a grand kick from purchasers if they are culled upon to p ly for their photos an well us tho liooks, but In this era of cheup kodaks and simply pressing the button every rallvvuy passenger agent can allord to do his own photographing. All of the roads east of Chicago but one luivo agreed, it is suld. to give the photographic mileage book u year's trial "Do Wo Live too Fust!" Is u ijuiwtioii that has been asked a tho maud tiin es mid, with a fow exceptions, always answered in tho affirmative. Learned mid eminent physi cians have written time and again their views and with ono accord agree that Americans live nt too swift a p tee. Tho hut physician to join the ranks of those who have hounded the tocsin of warning Is Dr. Cyrus Edison. In tho AbrfA luirWruu Uertmo for March he talks in this strain: "In thirty years time, less than half the lllbUcal allowance of man's life, the United States haw multiplied its wealth six tlmitt, aud has nearly trebled that per cuplt't. What energy, what work, what Increasing etrort has been needed to bring about this marvelous result! What can we do to retard this development of the brain and nerves at the expense of tho body ? Obviously It is impossible, to change our sur roundings, to chaugo our food, to lessen tho drive of our modern life, to relievo the strain on the mind, to mako the competition less fierce. It Is apparent then, that as we can not lessen the strain, wo must iucreiso the ability to undergo it. Wo must, as a people, learn to understand (his: that while we drive tho brain wo must build the body. Tho methods of doing this nru so simple that they aro apt to be overlooked; they muy be summed up in two words exercise and fresh air. As wo teach our children to wash their hands and faces in the morning and continue our teachings until ablutions become a habit so fixed as to produce jioaltive discomfort if they are omitted, so we must teach them to exercise until this too, becomes a habit, it second nature, a something that when omit ted causes real physical distress, mid we must chooso a form of exercise which is adapted to persons of middle ngo as well as to child ren. . . . build up the body, build up tho body! In our modern life tills should be dinned Into the ears until it is obeyed, for, verily, unless we build up the body, the strain on tho bruin will ruin the American eoplo. Tho very elements In ourselves that have made us great, the push, the drive, tho Industry, tho mental keenness, tho ability mid the wllliiiguess to labor these contain in them tho seeds of national death. No race may endure that has not the stamina and power of tho healthy animal. The American race bus run too much to brain." Dr. Edi son says somo very plain mid erstwhile prac tical truths. Wo need to give more atten tion to our mode of living it we would uttaln tho highest realisation of nature's plans, always remembering "It Is not tho work but tho puce which kills."

IinliolV Writes 11 llrm-ry niul Interesting Letter. Tho following letter from his mother, Mrs. M. E. Iinhoir who is spending tho winter In Florida, has been received by C. II. (mholT, ami it Is through his courtesy we aro enabled to lay It before our render to lay: HUTiir.ut.ANl), Fin., Feb. 10, 1S0J. My Dkaii Bon; According to promise, I seat inyselt to write you my first Impression of our southern imisscssIoiim, Of coursj I can not give opinions us I could utter it louder so journ, but after theso few days can form a pretty correct estiuvite of many thluicx. Tho Han Marino aud Quit View more than meet my expectations; the former Is a splendidly nrranged house of one hunored and fifty rooms and can accomodate very nicely throe hundred guests. Tho ceilings uro hjgh, rooms all light uud well ventilated In size exceed that of tho majority of season re sorts. Tnoy nro furnished tastefully and every room hits it nice closet. Aboit one half the rooms have grates which aro very pretty, not tho hideous little uiralrs wo often find in hotels. Tho wood work of tho entire house Is of southern hard plue mid llnNlnsl In Its natur al grain is very neat. Tho dining room Is large, light aud airy, with it largo lire place on ono side, from which a pine knot lire sends cheerful gleams on cool mornings they tell us, iilthoiiKh since our nrrlvul there has been no occasion. Tho olllcu in tho center of tho house is very attractive, with it cozy re ception room at the rignt as you enter, uud a wilting room at the loft. Tho halts are wldo and spacious; from ouu end oM)iis tho soluiluiu, which is filled with lounges and easy rockers for tho coinfortof senil-lnvalids, who desire thesuu baths. Wldo verandahs sitviouud tho entire main building, with stairs coming from the upper to tho lower verandahs hi several places, so that In case of lire, ttioro would bj easy exits ovury little ways. Tlio grounds mo eipt cious aud ivlll in time be tho handsomest on tho west coast. At present tho trees mid shrubbery lire smallv but In this cilmate they grow and mature very rapidly. Tho faro in the dining room compares very favorably with northern houses of tho first class. Our meats wo get from the Norrh packed in ico. We huvo had turkey every dinner but ono since we came aud oysteis and llsh are ox lulleut. Vegetables uro the same us wo huvo lu Lincoln, only of coursu wo Imvo now onions, radishes, cabbage, etc., here. Lust evening wo had ftrnwtorrics that wore as largo and delicious in llnvor as wo get in Nebraska In June. Tho oranges are tho fin est lu llnvor l ever tasted, so frosh ami Juicy. Grace suld today the orange sherbet wus tho fliifkt slio over had, duo largely to' tho llne ness of tlio fruit, I think. Wo huvo u crow almost entirely from tho North, tho inujoil ty from Now York. Tho southern servunts are so umeliuble uud iuefltuieiit we mo them only us wo me obliged to, to fill vucuncios temiorurily. Tim locution hero is unsurpassed in tho state, high, dry, with a full view of tho bay from the front of tho house, uud piiu groves In the rear, from tho breezes of which wo get that resinous, healthful alt so desirable to tho many who como south for health. As I sit by my oieu window writing, I cannot realize that It muy bo freezing cold with you. Yesterday a purty of us went over to Hhell Island, about live mllos away. It was my first trip nut on the water uud I onjoyod it very much. Richard came homo very happy and triumphant with his pull of shells mid burned face, notwithstanding his broad brimmed straw hat. He is perfectly happy here. Ho had his Hue uud hook trolling along all tho way yesterday, but was not us fortunate as some of tho older ones lu catch ing llsh. We hud it delightful drlvo Monday over to Mr. Hodgers place, about a mile aud a half nwiiy, where we gathered oranges, lemons, citrous, etc., without' own hand, sampled the guuvn a southern fruit from which much jelly Is made, saw date treos In bloom, etc., but I can't tell all, so will Just close this ,&v- wlvm'yc. K.ki ISSfefcsterESy . L already long letter mid write ngniu soon' giving you Inter impressions ns I have op portunity to see and know more of this beau tiful southern clime. My only regret Is that you nro not nil hero In; fact I wish all our friends could spend nt least tho mouth of March here, away from the changes, colds, and coughs incident to that month lu Ne braska. Aftor that month I would bo ready nnd willing to return to Lincoln, tho "Magic City'tef tho West. Remember mo kindly to nil frwnds. M. E. iMiiorr.

Of tho sovorulliotels In Oinuhu that cater to first class -Mitronago, none deserve tho good will of mi appreciative public like tho popular Murray hotel. It is well known to many (Llncolnltes and is the favorite stop ping place for the-iOO of tho capital city. The location of the Murray Is central, Ixilng on Fourteenth ami Harvey streets lu tho bus iness center, near the theutres and nil places of Interest. The cuisine ami service is ac knowledged by tho most exacting traveling public, to bo unsurpassed anywhere In the west mid the rooms, all large, either single or cufculto, lire light, well ventilated uud magnificently furnished. It Is Omaha's model hotel aud Llncolultes are always made welcome. Mine host Blllowuy Is milk ing It most popular success of the Murray uud Omaha visitors from this city find it a most pleasant i eort to stop at. When lu Oinuhu next time, glvo tho .Murray it trial. iJiilekTImu to Oiiiitliu. It's remai knhle, tho time that the Hurling- ton llfio can aud does iiiuke. Tho other day after leaving Lincoln fifteen minutes lute, the great long Hue of eleven conches, nulled into Omaha promptly on time. When it Is understood that the tlmo given for the trip is 75 minutes mid for the train to muke the dis tance of .V miles in sixty minutes, those ac customed to traveling will readily realize the high nito of speed that is required. The lino between the capital city and the state me troolls does not run through a country that might bo termed "table laud." After leav ing Ashluud the train liegtus to cll'iib a heavy grade mid for more than half the dis tance It Is mi "uphill job" in the fullest sense of tho term. The Burlington Is the old standby uud has always given Lincoln quick est time and uucqualod service to ull pioml. lent centers. To Omaha It is the shortest line by over five miles und makes tho trip lu ubout half the time of Its most pieteutlous livnl. Constuiit heuvy travel between the two grent cities shows public profeieneo uud appreciation nnd us our friend Kleiner would say, "thollurllngton does tho business.

Monday evening Boyd's new theatro wns literally packed, the audience being tho largest and most fashionable that has en joyed the drama lu the now theatre.

In terpreted tho entire play, that of Hardou's "Iu Tusca" lu French ax did also tho entire HiipiKirt, which throughout was uniformly excellent mid tho principal characters very lino Indeed. To witness Bornhurdt'sdruuiutlu work Is a genuine trtvtt, for although one does not und'irstand tho French, her deliver ntlous ure so sharp mid clear that the thread of thostoiy emi Imi fully rc-illus! neverthe less. In fact to sum It up more clearly the play could not hnvo Ihmiii better understood hail It been enacted a !niitomino. However, tho writer had seen Funny Davenport's pre sentation of tho same piece and therefore the work of tho artists were fully compre hended. Ah mi emotional actress Bernhardt undoubtedly has no living equal. Her work Is so clever that tho auditor, even not under standing her tongue, forgets that she Is merely acting. In tho love scenes she is tenderness lu It very simplicity; In coiitem platioushe is keen und culm, while lu -mi. siou nnd hate, she is full of lire uud deter mination. It was it grand production by it gram! player, nnd candidly I must admit that contrary to my expectations I was mg nlllclontly entertained.
