A Fake Pure and Simple.
Lieutenant Governor Majors ar
rived in the CH3- 3 esterda3- after
noon. He was found at his hotel by
a Journal reporter and when asked
in relation to the dispatch which
appeared in Wednesday's Bee
claiming that he had filed an inter
vendr in the matter of the governor
ship, replied that the dispatch was
a fake, pure and simple, that he was
not even in the cit3r 011 Yed11esda3-
as the dispatch stated he was, nor
had he been for some cla3s, but had
been at his home attending to mat
ters there. As to the editorial in
Wednesda3''s World-Herald, he said
it contained neither facts nor de
ductions drawn from facts, that he
had never agreed with anyone to
waive any rights that accrue to him
b3' a decision of the court in the
matter of Boyd's eligibility to the
office of governor; that he had never
signed an intervenor or authorized
aii3r one to do so for him, and that
as to the 113-phen proving itself an
honored prophet at home, it did
what aii3r man might do who kept
his jaws continual- wagging off
guesses and making up imaginary-
causes to lit them. Lincoln State

It is not always easy in any sphere to
discriminate between the trifling and the
momentous. It is often a matter of com
parison, and judgment and experience
are needed in the selection. Trifles are
not to be confounded with details, which
are often most important. Neither are
things necessarily trifling because they
are small. A kind look, a gentle warn
ing, a cordial greeting, a slight service
are sometimes despised as trifles, when
in truth they are signs of a generous and
kindly nature, and cany untold blessings
to their recipients.
Many little things are far more im
portant than what we misscall great
ones: they may indeed be the true reali
ties, while the others may be insignifi
cant. If each one will faithfully examine
the meanings and purposes of the various
spheres in which he moves, and endeavor
conscientiously to make them first in his
heart and life, the trifles will sink into
their proper and subordinate place.
