WITH regard to. the possible op

Mr. J. M. Osborn, one of the division
freight agents of the Wabash, writes
that it should be easily overcome
by reference to the history of the
New York Central, the Pennysl
Tania and other noted lines. The
late Dean Richmond, for many
years the general manager of the
New York Central, is quoted as
saving that the traffic of these lines,
large as it was, was only incidental
to a still larger traffic done by
water lines, in soni'j sense counter

The movement is not an attack

Il is an iucontrovert able fact that
the idea of protection is rapidly
spreading in the south. The citi
.ens of that region are waking up
to the fact that they may as well
harness the steam power and util
ize it in building up the wealth of
their country and render them
selves independent of foreign
countries as the north. Win. T.
Moore, the greatest dry goods
merchant in the Bouth, gives some
of his reasons for adhering to the
protective policy in the following:
"I am, furthermore, a protection
ist because, being a native of the
southern section of our great
nation, I fiave not been a careless
observer of the then dependent
position of the late Confederacy, on
account of its inability to wage tuc
cessful war. This position was an
outcome of its slave system ami of
free trade teachings for fifty years
preceding the war. Seeing, there

and Confederate must see, if his
eyes be not hermetically sealed,
that their failure was chiefly ac
complished by their inability to
manufacture even their ordinary
war implements and machinery

ine a sound or valid argument for
free trade in the United States
within the next fifty years."
The time has arrived when a halt
should be called upon the sopisti
cated and unwarranted warfare be
ing waged against our public
schools by the Evening News. In
the attacks upon the instructors
repeatedly made, its editor has
completely overlooked the matter
of justice. And in his sarcastic at
tempt to work detrimentally to the
successful prosecution of the
school work, he has placed himself
in a very ridiculous altitude, to say
the least. Ilia attack in last eve
ning's issue upon the Delsarte ex
ercises betrays, to one at all famil
iar with the art, a woeful ignorance
of the subject upon the part of the
The Pclsarte system of physical
exercises is recognized by leading
educators everywhere as the most
natural and graceful system extant,
and not, as our contemporary would
have the patrons of our schools
believe, a novel idea or an exneri-
nient. Its primary object is to put
the muscles in proper condition for
grace and beauty in appearing
upon the stage. It is really supple
mentary to elocutionary drill, the
priii cipal end to be attained bejng
the acquirement of easv. graceful
gestures, with such incidental
physical culture as it will afford.
We pause here to remind the
News pedagogue that the forward
and backward movements, the evil
results of which he makes so im
pressive by the tne of the scholarly
simile, does not originate or is it in
any way connected with Delsarte,
but on the contrary, it comes in the
drill of calisthenic exercises, purely
a means of physical culture.
The citizens of Plattsmouth have
abundant reasons to be proud of
the city schools as conducted by
the present management. It is ad
mitted by patrons that we
never had teachers better qualified
for the work or more thoroughly
interested in the advancement of
our schools. It has been suggested
by a patron of our schools that this
progressiveness on the part of our
present corps of teachers is so far
ahead of the plan adopted by their
predecessors, that the News has
been used us a tool to give flavor to
hir green-eyed jealous;
To the end that our readers may
form some idea of the benelicicnt
results of the McKinley law, we
clip the following from the Inter
"The filter Ocean yesterday an
nounced the repeal of the long
established prohibition of Amer
iean pork from the Austrian mar
kets, and the passage of a bill by
the Mexican house of deputies that
enables the president of the repub
lic to suspend duties imposed on
grain, meats and animals. The
Mexican act will be almost as ex
clusive In its beneficial operation
toward the fanners of this country
as the Austrian. For though the
Mexican law empowers the presi
dent to suspend the duties on all
the things enumerated, no matter
whence they may be brought, by it,
yet the United States will be almost
the only exporter of any of them.
Some wheat may reach Mexico from
the Argentine Republic, but the
bulk of grain imports must be from
thi United States, and the meat
supply almost wholly from here.
Thus, since the passage of the
McKinley bill,, the farmers of Un
united States have made gains as

and France.
Duties on grain, meats, lard ami
nearly all farm products repealed
by Drazil and Cuba.

meals and live stock free of duty.
These concessions by foreign
nations to the products of the
United Stales farmers have been
mad: since, and some of them
because of, the passage of that new
tariff which the free traders and
democrats assured the farmers
won Id 'materially curtail the

Not a single prediction made by
the democrats and free traders con
cerning the operation of the McKin

one of them has been proved farse
Our exports have increased, anil
so have our imports, the prices of
home-made goods have tended
downward, our manufactures have
increased in quantity and improved
in quality. The How of gold has

as a measure beneficient to the
whole country, but firstly to the
farmers of the country."
"Whose boys?" "Your boys; your
neighbor's boys; everybody's boys."
Hoys will be boys, but not every
one knows how to manage them;
but if you wish some practical,
common-sense suggestions, read
the article on the subject published
in the January number of Denio
rest's Family Magazine, that ideal
publication which bears out to the
full the promise of its name. The
January number contains a genu
ine holiday feast. The subject of
the beautiful water-color "A Slip
pery Spot" appeals to every parent
who has little ones, and the subtle
sentiment of the exquisite full-page
engraving, "Eloquent Silence'' (after
a painting by Alma-Tadeina), will
be appreciated by young men and
maidens. The artistic attractions
include, besides, over 2iX) other
pictures, illustrating "Ihinna and
the lhirmese," by a resident of
liurina; "Evolution of Modern
Costume," interesting alike to men
and women; "Intelligence Offices
in Paris," which will strike a re
sponsive chord m every house
keeper's heart; "Home Art and
Home Comfort," which, besides
some novel ideas for fancy-work,
includes a paper on "Amusements
for a Sick Child"; Correct Styles in
Table Silver," an appropriate
sequel to "A Course Dinner" given
in the previous number; and sev
eral especially fine stories. The
departments, "Our Girls," "Sani

The merchants' association of

Sugar Beet Convention.
As the dates approach for the
beet sugar convention at Lincoln,
the delegates should prepare to
attend. The H. & M. road author
izes us to announce that a rate of
one and one-third fare for the
round trip will be made. Parties
purchasing tickets will pay full
fare to Lincoln and receive a certifi
cate from Agent Latham. This
certificate should be signed ot Lin
coln by M. A. Lunn, secretary of
the board of trade, and upon its
presentation transportation home
will be granted for one-third fare.

Why the Shnrk la Always Hungry.
As it is a source of wonder how the
flea manages to exist in tho sand, where
hia chances of obtaining a meal may
not occur once in a lifetime, so natural
ists are puzzled as to how the shark
maintains himself. The ocean is wide,
and the number of men who fall over
board small indeed in comparison to its
area. The vast proportion of sharks,
then, must go through their lives with
out a remote chance of obtaining a meal
at the expense of the human kind.
There is no ground for the supposition
that the shark can exist upon air; he is
not like the whale, provided with an ap
paratus that enables him to sweep np
the tiny inhabitants of the seas. He is
too slow in swimming, and infinitely too
slow in turning, to catch any fish that
did not deliberately swim into his niouth;
and nnless we suppose that, as it is said
of the snake, he exercises a magnetic in
fluence over fish and causes them to rush
headlong to destruction between his
jaws, it is impossible to imagine how he
obtains a sufficient supply of food for his
Indeed, it would appear that it is only
when he gets the good luck to light upon
a dead or badly injured fish that the
shark has ever the opportunity of mak
ing a really sqnare meal. Eis prolonged
fasts certainly furnish an ample explana
tion and eicuse for his alleged savagery
of disposition. London Standard.
