A ALMI8TUY In junt now receiving a
if great ileal of attention. Palmists
are springing up everywhere, and
much is being written on this nubjoct.
In England the law has grappled with
it and professors of palmistry are tteing
proaecutod. In tho latest installment of
Mark Twain'a serial story "Pudd'n Head
Wilson" in the Century, )ho subject is
introduced in 11 way that adds to tho in
toreat of the story. Palmistry has re
eolvod some attention in Lincoln, and
there aro a number of eople here who
practice it as amateurs.
Rosa Uaughun, of London, tho
"princess of palmists," in discusaing tho
so-called science, says:
"Astrology Is tho keynote to the wholo
affair. Palmistry is tho essential of
i. y astrology, without which you can do
v nothing. Of course I judgo of a person
a great deal by tho hands, but tho face
and tho influence of tho planots are my
principal indexes to character. Oh, yes;
I havo somo strango people hero some-
times. Royalists, actresses, literary
mon, politicians, in short, all sorts and
conditions of men and women. Tho
famous Jay Gould visited mo a short
time before his death. He wroto mo a
tL letter (under a forgod name) from somo
V .London hotel, saying ho would liko to
Bjf consult mo ono Saturday morning., I
mb replied that tho day was tin inconvenient
ono to mo, but still if ho very much
wished it I would receive him when ho
desired. Next Saturday I received a
tolegram saying my consultant was ill
and could not come would that day
week do? I replied yes, und punctually
to the hour a cab drovo up to tho door
and from it alighted a little, old wizened
man, accompanied by a female I saw
at onco, ho was born under the in
fluence of Mercury, which in somo posi
tions at birth gives inordinato lovo of
money. I told him ho was a linancior,
fc and probably a celebrity in his way.
n He confessed it was so, and appeared
HB hugely amused. Ho then asked how
Kv long he had to live, and I replied, 'two
YJK years,' whereat he appeared manifestly
K uneasy, as was also his, companion, tho
U woman, who seemed to desire better
yf things. Upon rising to go he asked the
, extent of my fee. I said 1 guinea. Ho
i then fumbled in his breast pocket, as if
in search of a coin. 'You need not
trouble about the shilling,' I said to him,
divining his intention.
'Thank you, he returned. 'You see,
a sovereign is legal coin of tho realm,
whereaa there's no such thing as a
guinea, is there?' he said, appealing
anxiously to me.
"I laughed and assured him there was
not, but the woman, who stayed behind
a little after ho had gone out of the room,
regarded his penuriousneBaJn a different
light, and said to mo: 'You ought to
havo insisted upon the guinea; do you
know that man is worth millions?' I
replied that possibly it was so, but that
'Next I had another American to see
me. 'Do you know who came to consult
you lost weokT' wcro almost his first
words. "Jay Gould, the American milt
lionaire. He put off going to America
for a week on purpose to Bee you. I am
itaying at his hotel. He told me he had
been to consult you."
There was a very respectable article
in last Sunday's Journal on criticism,
dramatic and otherwise, that haBa di
rest bearing or the towering egotist
-A who is attached to one of the evening
papers, we are sorry mat me uournat
criticisms are not as good as Its article
on criticism. Our contemporary has such
proper ideas on the subject that it is a
little surprising that tho criticisms ap
pearing in its columns, which of late
have been particularly ambitious, are so
generally flat, stale and unprofitable.
t .We take pleasure in making the follow-
r ing quotation from the JournaVa edi-
I Ono critic takes the stand that ho can
J criticise any entertainment which is ad
Vsvertised In a paper. Yes, but not' in tho
W' "rIovoIobs and rather indelicate manner
1 in which that critic frequently criticises.
7 He has started his crusade on tho
churches and wo may at any tlmo ex
pect a statement that Dr. So-and-So's
prayer last night was rather too long,
and wholly lacking in dramatic tone,
that the doctor's voice was not good, his
gestures awkward and his poses in bad
taste. This is the mildest we may ex
pect. Heaven grant he will not say that
the doctor's prayer was off color and
that tho doctor's voice reminded him of
a buzz-saw, or a saw-mill, or a canning
factory, and that tho doctor ought to
have been in bed. One thing will be
granted, that it is a critic's duty to at
least speak respectfully and decently of
every lady and gentleman whose face
has not appeared on the bill boards and
who is a respectable member of society.
If (he critic will not do this and cannot
r.'BMtaln from coarseness, no ono is hurt
' so much as ho may think. The indigna
tion and toars or wnicn no speaics aro
mostly motapnorical, lie is not likely

.board of education expire this spring,
the retiring members being Mr. Eaton,
Irs. Upton and Miss Elliott. The work
of filling these places will give infinite
',t to the spring campaign. Nowadays
anything relating to tho school board is
sure to attract attention, and, after the
recont somewhat violent agitation of
school matters In this city, an election is
ccrtajn to arouse tho deepest interest.
There will of course bo a non-partisan
tickot, and ono of the interesting ques
tions that will havo to bo decided in tho
making up of tho ticket is, whether ono
or two women shuil bo placed on tho
tickot, or whether it shall Ito composed
entirely of mon. Tlioro will be the usual
effort to tako tho matter of tho election
of monitors of tho ttoard of education
entirely out of politics, and a strong at
tempt will undoubtedly be mado to pre
vent tho political parties from placing
opposition tickets In tho field. There is
a wido division of opinion among re
publicans on 'this question.
Tho appointment of J. H. Hurley to
the poetmastorsbip, signalising bh it
does, tho turning down of Congressman
Bryan by tho administration, may not
cause tho congressman to sing loud
hosannas of great joy; but it will givo
general satisfaction to tho peoplo of Lin
coln. Mr. Harley is a successful busi
ness man, and ho will make a lcautiful
and efficient postmaster, .
Mr. Harley will, wo aro credibly in
formed, mako a number of improvements
in tho postofllce. Ho will sprinkle Band
or ashes on the postoffico sfeps when'
there is snow or ico lurking uround,
thereby saving many lives and shins.und
he will immediately start a quarter off
sale in postage stamps, to get rid of tho
big stock left over by Mr. Gere. Mr.
Harley will also station two gaily
caparisoned pickaninnies in tho postoffico
corridor to lick iostage stamps for lady
patrons of tho p. o. Wo violate no con
fidence in saying that Mr. Harley will
mako a daisy postmaster.
Of course it will bo claimed that Mr.
Bryan was properly recognized in tho
appointment of Mr. Harloy. But tho
fact remains that Mr. Bryan was a sup
pliant for Major Calhoun, and Major
Calhoun was not appointed. Mr. Bryan
did not got what ho wanted.
Wo aro Borry for Major Calhoun. Wo
would, with many others, havo rejoiced
at his appointment; but newspaper men,
liko common people, have their disap
pointments, and tho major has a bravo
heart. We bid him good cheor, and in
the languageof the Call, suggest that ho
wait for tho next democratic adminis
tration. We are afraid, however, that a
good ma'ny winters will come and go,
making men of little boys and whiten
ing the hair of those who are now young
and flossy, before there will be another
democratic president; but newspaper
men are used to waiting. They havo all
dieted on it.
Ik it is the Intention to keep the gold
reserve intact it is the general belief in
treasury circles that a new issue of fifty
millions in bonds will havo to bo resorted
to within tho "next fow months until
congress comes to the rescue, as tho ex
penditures continue to run ahead of tho
receipts at the rato of about 10,000,000 a
month. Associated Press dispatch.
The democratic policy of overthrow
and destruction was never so effectively
exemplified as by tho present administration.
A receiver for tho government ought'
to bo appointed.
Henry D. Estabrook, of Omaha, one
of tho regents of tho state university,
whoso speech at tho banquet of the
Young Men's Republican club in this
city last spring mado such a deep im
pression, was one of the orators at the
Lincoln dinner in New York, and by at
least two of the newspapers of that city
he was given the credit of having made
the best speech of the evening. His ex
perience in- New York was but a repeti
tion of his triumph in Chicago two years
ago. Nearly always when you say of
this or that man, that ho is a credit to
the state, your statement is, to a very
large extent, rot; but when you say that
Estabrook reflects credit upon Nebraska,
you are stating tho truth in a very fceblo
Readers of tho Journal must have sus
tained a sovoro shock on reading tho
following editorial in that paper Wednes
day: "The peoplo are beginning to wonder
at tho modesty of tho crematory people
in asking for nothing more than tho city
of Lincoln and tho country within fivo
miles of it. It would have been just as
