It is a Bide-show not under the main can

that the sow that was wawhed clean over

The niaiairemcnt on the part of tho

in the fact that there will be a change
for the better this fall by the election of a

Leading C'tilldltih Characteristics Sensi

Croat Mental Activity Father and
Mother Astonishing Question.
luo lata IJronson Alcott bad many un
wholesome Mens that made him offensively
eccentric, but his reverence for children did
a groat deal to redoem his character in
shaplnir the character of his daughter, to
whom Le imparted it. Ilor best work and
ber bust is probably the Lest of its kind is
the result of reverent study of child charac
ter. Tho subject demands reverence, for it
is a true saying of tho Romans that the
preatost reverence is the due of children.
The mind in childhood is a riddle a mystery
beyond all our philosophy. Wo can no moro
tell when or where it Logins than when or
where it will end. Tho new lom, sentient
being stares with wHo open eyes on an un
known world. It is an utter stranger, in a
strange country, among a multitude of
Etraniro things and straairo people. It is
scarcely doubtful that it begins to learn;
tliat its education begins; that the mind in it
begins to develop when tho first ray of light
strikes it3 new ly opened eyes. The develop
ment then is rapid. Kvory object around it;
every word spoken; every gesture becomes a
part of its education. The very tones of the
voice, high or low, gentle or harsh, make
impressions on tho childish mind that are
never to bo effaced.
Of all the childish characteristics the most
impressive is wonder wonder at everthing;
at the trees and ilowers, at the clouds, the
sun, tho moon and the stars; and at the liv
ing creatures under tnem. (jmiuren, sup
posed to 13 too 3'oung to reason, will spend
hours in wondering at tho enigmas of nature;
m rorming tueories ana attempting to ac
count for things. Thoy ask innumerable
questions, or rather they will, if they are en
couraged oy rignt answers. A. frjut answer
will not satisfy a child, but it may and it
nearly always does discourage further ques
tions. 1 oung children cannot understand
flippancy; they have no idea of humor or of
double meaning. Everything is truth for
them until they have learned that lies exist,
and even then they aro very slow in learning
that what seems to be untrue may be all the
truth we have on any subject. If any ques
tion they may ask on a subject which is of
tho doepost significance to them is treated as
it commonplace and answered lightly or flip
pant!', they drew back as from a blow.
The mind in childhood is sensitive to all
impressions peculiarly sensitive to lack of
application or to ridicule. It demands sym-
patny as well as Knowledge. 1 ficro is no
commonplace for it. Its world is new,
strange and awe inspiring, full of wonders.
Everything is sublime to it. The religious
sense of awe and wonder is keen and active.
A child will wonder why the sun rises, why
tho trees put on their leaves in spring, why
tho birds build nests, why night comes after
day. It does not discriminate between sub
jects whero all seem of equal importance.
its mma is growing as tne nana or the race
grow. Its mental infancy has many points
of resemblance t J tho mental infancy of tho
race. It is deeply religious, full of the faith
that is the complement of wondor. This
faith, this awe, aro a part of its reason, and
during its waking hours its reason is inces
santly active. It is constantly called into
play by the new impressions it constantly
receives, and so it nearly alwaj's happens
that a child is given its final direction in life
during its period of greatest mental activity
before it is 8 years old.
. Fathers generally know almost nothing of
their children because of lack of sympathy
with them. The masculiuo mind iu the full
grown man is nearly always commonplace.
It cannot reach the level of tho mind of
childhood, to which there are no common
places. Tne mother's mind is nearest to that
of the child, and on tho mother its education
most depends. She succeeds in the measure
of her sympathy with it. If she shares ita
wondering awe of the many mysteries of the
world, and feels the sublime as inherently
and unconsciously as the child does; if the
world and lifo have not ceased to be awf u
to her, she succeeds in the largest measure.
If slie has reduced everj-thing to common
place she will drive the reason of childhood
into commonplaeeuess, from which thero
will bo no after escape for it. Tho
astonishing questions which children ask
questions which not infrequently go
right to the bottom of tho whole mystery of
things aro not mere accidents. They are
the result of the keen insight of the reason of
childhood that goes straight for the truth.
They may have cost hours, days, weeks of
pondering and thought. It is a mistake to
answer them lightly; it is a crime to answer
them flippantly;. for the keenness of tho
childish reason is easily blunted, its capacity
for truth easily lost.
To retain the mind of childhood through,
life is a happiness that falls to few the few
great genuises. In one way or another tho
childish reason is lost; the childish faculty of
faith, of awe, of appreciation of truth, is
blunted in most who live beyond 12 years.
We even lose the memory of what we were
and so despise the reason of childhood.
"Women retain it most frequently, and they
can, therefore, better understand and sym
pathize with their children. St. Louis Re
publican. Xapoleon at St. Helena.
The Listener, years ago, knew a sea cap
tain, one of that fine typo of knights of tho
sea that has become extinct along with the
American carrying trade, who had seen
Napoleon at St. Helena. Tho old captain
he was then a young captain had made in
effectual attempts during a prolonged stay
at the island to seo the captive, but in vain.
The English authorities, who with very good
reason suspected Americans of being and will
ing, if not prepared, to spirit Napoleon away,
resolutely denied the captain any oppor
tunity to visit Long wood
But Yankee preseveranco is not easily baf
fled. The captain in his rambles had discov
ered a point of view commanding Napoleon's
favorite promenade. There, securely en
sconced with his trusty and powerful ship's
glass, bo marked down Napoleon. The glass
was so powerful that Napoleon's every mo
tion as be talked with an attendant was
clearly to bo discerned. Once Napoleon
turned his face full toward the captain, and
the face of the great man was for an instant
set in the telescope as a miniature, and tho
wonderful eyes looked full into those of tho
Yankee captain. Tho latter described them
as beautiful hazel eyes, deep and pathetic,
rather than penetrating. They were tho
eyes of tho world conqueror conquered.

Odd Secret of Power Webster on "In
spiration Law of Sucre.
Every one, in beginning his independent
career, Las to consult two things; (1) his
natural ambition; (2) his ability. Now, ho
may bavo considerable taste in noma direc
tion, but bo unable to got the drill and prac
tice necessary to eminence in that line. "I
should like myself to write for the press,"
wrote a gentleman to me. "I inclose a sam
ple." I eaid to him to succeed in becoming a
versatilo writer, able to tell tersely what you
have to say, and then to bavo enough to say
that ieoplo care to read, requires daily prac
tice in composition from the time one is 13
years old, and it needs at least twenty years
of keen, careful study in the way of mind
It is often said that Roscoo Conkling's
power over a crowd of listeners is incompre
hensible. I know that ho was incomprehen
sible to me until I watched and found the
secret of bis power. He is naturally gifted
to sway the multitude; but thia is not alL
He has. through all his career, seduously
practiced self restraint. Nothing will induce
him to waste his power on the scuffle of de
bate. He never speaks until he is prepared,
and then be swings tho hammer of Thor.
"Webster followed tho same course, and was
never a debater unprepared. Some one said
that his great 8cech against Uayue was an
instance of unstudied power. "It is not so,"
said Webster. "I prepared that speech in
the main years before for another occasion.
It so happened that debate never took place.
I had my notes in a pigeon bole, and when
Hayno made his attack upon mo and upon
New England I was already posted, and only
had to take down my notes and refresh my
memory. If ho had tried to mako a speech
to fit my notes ho could not bavo hit it bet
ter. No man is inspired I never was."
Probably men of tho Webster type never
are inspired in a better way than to mako
good preparation. To make a good editor
one must begin at tho bottom and climb.
Dickens said of novel writing: "I do not bo
lieve it possible that any natural or improved
ability can claim immunity from tho com
panionship of the steady, plain, bard work
ing qualities. I never put ono band only to
my work, but my whole self, and I never de
preciate tho work." I have an acquaintance
of some genius who considers it essential to
assert that bo throws off bis work spontane
ously, without severe labor. His boasting is
silly; but, fortunately for bim, he does work
assiduously, and his work is to the point.

Old Persian Wine Jars.
I arrived in Persia in the middle of tho
grape season, and shortly after reaching Te
heran became an interested spectator of tho
process of making wine thero. The house in
which I spent tho winter belonged to Mr.
N , a member of the Persian telegraph
department. It was a native built houso,
with a square court yard in tho center. Quo
of the first things that awakened my curios
ity was three huge earthenware jars standing
in a row on ono side of tho compound. They
were jars that stood a3 high as a man's
shoulder, and bellied out much in tho shapo
of slender barrels. Each vessel held about
thirty-five gallons.
"What aro they for to hold rain water?"
was the natural query that suggested itself
to mo.
"No," said N , "they aro wine jars, reg
ular old Persian wine jars, that wero in uso
2,000 years ago."
"But not these samo jars 2,000 years?"
"No, not exactly; but thoso three jars have
probably bad wino fermented in them every
season for the last 100 years." He then went
on to explain further about the jars.
The Persians believe that these wino jars
improve with age, just as the wine itself
does, and that better wino can bo made in
old jars than in new ones. A wino jar 100
years old is worth several times more than a
new ono, not because of any value attached
to its antiquity in the abstract, but because
it is a thoroughly seasoned vessel. Good
wine, they say, cannot be mado in new jars;
the older the jars the better the wine.
Tho Mohammedan injunction against the
making and drinking of intoxicants has bad
the effect of making sad hypocrites of three
fourths of the upper class of Persians. Even
tho mollahs and seyuds get drunk in secret,
but openly they not only do not indulge, but
tliey proiess to regard those who do so with
abhorrence. When the wine making season
arrives there is as much wire pulling and
diplomacy employed among tho Persians to
mako wine on the quiet, without incurring a
scandal, as there is here in a political cam
paign. Thomas Stevens in New York Sun.
Flour Dast Dangerous.
The Milling World reminds millers of the
oft proved fact that flour dust is a danger
ously explosive material. Beware, says tho
editor, of lights thrust or carried into bins
or rooms filled with dust laden air. A week
ago, he adds, I was startled as well as amused
on entering a friend's mill to seo the latest
"cub" going around with an uncovered light,
doing some investigation on "his own hook."
As he thrust the light into a very dusty
place, which his boyish curiosity suggested to
him to explore, he was whistling in that pe
culiar foghorn tone peculiar to and possiblo
to nobody but a half grown boy tho popular
old tune, "I want to be an angeL" As his
whistle rose keen and triumphant above the
whirr and rattle of the mill machines I al
most expected to witness tho answering of
his whistled prayer by an explosion of dust
that would at onco convert him into tho
angel ho professed to wish to be. Having
put tho foreman on his track, I felt safer to
stay inside that building until my business
was transacted. In bow many cases is the
wild, fresh, careless, untutored "cub" tho
real cause of "mysterious" fires and explo
sions? He is often as dangerous as a dyna
mite bomb or a fire brand. Scientific
Superstition of Sporting Men.
A superstition among sporting men there
are still a few of that ilk in Chicago, though
tne rants nave been greatly decimated under
the vigorous anti-gambling crusade of tho
authorities is that it brings bad luck to rido
in a street car alone. A conductor tells a
story that a gambler took passage on bis car
and happened to be the sole passenger. Ho
was in a great hurry to get down town, but
hesitated as he looked at the vacant interior
of tho car. Finally a happy idea seemed to
strike him and his face brightened. Fishing
a dime from his pocket, he handed it to the
conductor. "Here," he said, "take two out
of that." The conductor looked at him won
deringly. "That's all right," ho said; "it's
you who are riding with ma I can't plav a
lone hand, for I wouldn't have any luck lor
a week." Then he explained bis superstition.
and was happy when the conductor ran? ur

The Republican For 1888.
Tho presidential campaign of 1888
promises to be fought out with great vig
or in all the Northern States of the Un
ion, and iu some of the Southern States
as well. Fortunately for the Republican
party, tho great issue fcaa baen made up
in ad vauce of the opening of the canvass,
so that it may be discussed intelligently.
The President of the United States, as
the leader of tho Democratic party, has
announced himself ia favor of maintain-
in'' the internal taxes, and of then reduc
ing the revenues roui imports to a poiut
which shall make the whole merely sum-
cient to meet the current expanses of the
government. The democratic press and
a majority of the democratic members in
congress have announced their accept
ance of thia platform.
The republican partv, on the other
hand, stands squarely upon the platform
which it has occupied for more than a
quarter of a century that of protection
to American industries; to which is ad
ded the unrestricted right of suffrage
and an honevt count of ballots caat.
The issue thua made up, the parties
are preparing for tho fray. All over the
country the republicans are organizin:
They aro enthusiastic, earnest, and will
make an egprrsalve and a hot fight, and
are confident of success.

An Explanation.
What is this "nervous trouble" with
which so many seem now to be afflicted? If
you will remember a few years ago the
word Malaria was comparatively
known, today it is as common as
word in the English language, yet
any this
word covers only the meaning of another
word used by our forefathers in times
past. So it ia used with nervous diseases,
as they and Malaria are intended to cover
what our grandfathers called Biliousness,
and all are caused by troubles that arise
from a diseased condition of the Liver
which in performing its functions finding
it cannot dispose of the bile through the
ordinary channel is compelled to pass it
off through the svstem causing nervous
troubles, Malaria, Bilious Fever, etc.

To the Republicans of Nebraska.
Tht Republican is deiirous of reaching
eyery republican voter of Nebraska dur
ing the ensuing presidential campaign.
To that end we appeal to our friend in

th! Daily and Weekly. This will bo a
plendid opportunity to spread straight
republiraniKm before the people. We
want a "rustler" in every community.
Roll in the mamrs.

No remedy in the world has gained
the popularity that this medicine has, as
a hold on family medicine. No one
should be without it. It has no calomel
crquininein its composition, consequent
Jjno bad effects can arise from it. We
