SWIMMING FOR BOYS.
"Ihbvbr would allow my boy to
learn to swim," said the mother of an
only son; "and I never could bear to
have him in a boat, Skating I always
detested, and ball-playing I consider
vulgar. He had a horse for riding, and
he was always allowed to walk as much
as he chose." (!)
Her hearers understood why it was
that her son had grown up to be a Bar- j
row-chested and delicate man, and were
made all cash in

thankful that he was permitted to .o
out-dooro at all in his boyhood.
Fortunately this young man had pos
sessed a strong love for walking, and
also for study, which had kept him from
inanition, and fclso out of mischief. But
for an active, full-blooded boy not de
cidedly Btudious, such a bringing-up as
has been described would have meant
either ruin or death.
There is no need to descant upon the
manifold attractions and uses of swim
ming. All proper precautions for his
safety should be taken, but your boy
6hould learn to swim. Never let him go
into the water unless he i9 well; neither
let him go alone or with flighty boys
only, even when he has mastered the art
of natation cramps and accidents are
too common for that. Keep him away
from rapids and whirlpools, and impress
upon him at every opportunity, by anec
dote, precept, and example, the necessity
of exercising prudence in the matter.
Especially Bee that he is familiar with
remedies for cramp, and with modes of
reviving the drowned. Many a yaluable
life has been lost because a boy's com
panions did not understand how to use
proper restoratives when his body was
first recovered from the water. Kate

Amendment Notes. Last Excuse.
1. D. M. BUCKNER.
Some one told me last week that sev
eral, who live in Plattsmouth, had said:
"I expected to vote for the prohibitory
amendment, but if the "third party"
puts a ticket in the field I will vets
against it." This is surely the last ex
cuse. I did not think we had a man in
Nebraska narrow enough or mean
enougn to say that, much less in Platts
mouth. I think it mast have been a
Why think of a democrat saying, T
will vote f er the amendment if the re
publicans don't put a ticket in the field"
or a republican saying, "I will vote fer
the amendment if the farmers' alliance
don't put a ticket in the - field."
Or think of a man who was going to
rote for the prohibitory amendment
from principle, because he thought it
was right, and his brother did something
he did not like, so he said, "I will vote
against the amendment, so I will."
I just want to say here, that it is mj
candid conviction that any man who
would yote igdnst the amendment be
cause the "prohibs" put up a ticket,
would yote against it anyway. Let us
stand by our convictions in this content
between the home and the saloon.
The license law is against the mother's

Wculd it not bo better for a man to

about the dangers of the saloon and the
evils of drink; but he says five of the

this man the right to run a saloon, and

At the Tabernacle.
The first of the temperance camp
meetings was held in the tabernacle on
court house hill last sight. There was a
large audience, and very good order pre
vailedfwitbin the tent, but it is much to
be regretted that the manager of the
meetings found it necessary to rebuke
those hanging areund the outside of the
tent for disorderdly conduct The meet

upon the temperance question, in which
he said the eyes of the world were upon

this state next November it will not be
twenty-flye years till the drink habit will
be almost universally crushed out of ex
istence. But, if on the other hand the
saloons carry their amendment, and
make it a part of the fundamental law
of the state, the result would be disas
