A New York Central conductor
found $400 on his train just before the
holidays. Learning of its owner, h-
wired him to be on band on the return
trip and get the money. After the
amount was handed over and found to
be intact, tho loser took a half-dollar
from his pocket and held it out to the
veteran of the punch. "Without hesita
tion, the latter hld up his hand to the
emgineer, and shouting: "All aboard!
Sorry I haven't any change for that,'
stepped aboard the train, leaving the
half-dollar in the hand that had tendered
such a munificent reward for the return
of $W0.Biffallo Exjiress.
Drunkenness is a fearful thing. It
robs human life in a thousand ways. It
inflicts the agony tf hell upon those who
are as innocent as heaven. It fills the
jails and the penitentiaries and furnishes
victims for the gallows. It blasts friend
ship, kills love, paralyzes hope. It fes
ters and transmits disease. It is the
guardian devil of prostitution, of gamb
ling, of all tho lusts of flesh and spirit.
Since the world begun it has never made
one man better, one woman purer, one
home happier. It has never made a
church member. It has never made a
benefacter. It has never made a poet, or
a statesman, or a scholar, or an inventor,
or a musician. It has never assisted one
devotee to wealth or luxury, or to the
smallest comfort of surroundings. It
has never given birth to one good im
pulse. It has been, is and will be an
unmitigated, awful curse. For every
good thing that it has failed to accom
plish it has furnished a bad tiling. It
lias been an active force one of the
most incessantly active forces of civiliza
tion and it has always lead to crime, to
misery, to tears, to irons and chains and
dungeons, to desperation, remorse, degra
dation, injustice and death. Omaha

Witty Criticism.
A very sharp and intended witi-criti-cisin
is indulged in by the literary man
who does up the funny things in the
Public Fountain of the Omaha World.
It appears that Hon. X. K. Griggs, of
Beatrice, sent the Public Fountain a
copy of his ballad, "The Cry of the
Loon," and that its editor misunderstood
the compliment and indulges in unusual
levity over the matter. When he comes
to know that the author merely forward
ed the music to one of its species, think
ing one loon would know another when
be sees and hears it, both, he will under
stand his fun is all out of place. "The
Cry of the Loon" is heard ofteuer than
the Fountain realizes.

Tenth Anniversary.
Last night being the tenth wedding
anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Robt. Bal
lance, a good number of their friends
and neighbors gathered at their pleasant
home, completely surprising them. Rev.
Burgess, who performed the ceremony
ten years ago, was present; also
many guests were in attendance who
were present at their former wedding.
A very social time was had. The pres
ents were many and valuable. The groom
received a tin ring with a garnet set; the
bride was presented with a beautiful
broach set with an emblem.

Dreading; Cholera and Yellow Fevrr, lint
Not Alarmed by Children' Ailnx-ntH.
"It is astonishing how much excitement
can bo stirred up in this city over a conta
gious disease that New Yorkers have littlo
reason to lx afraid of, while there is so much
public indifference to diseases thut art? de
stroying thousand of lives every j'ear," said
a physician of the health department re
cently. "Just consider how much public;
alarm would bo caused by a few hundred
deaths from Asiatic cholera in New York
next summer. Yet thut disease, frightful as
it may bo in some parts of tho world, could
not compete with diphtheria as a destroyer
of human life in our climate and in a city
with good salutary regulations. Biiico 1W,
when 1,137 jicrsons died from cholera in thid
city, there has not been a death from tho
disease in New York, and tho next epidemic
will not be as fatal as tho last one.
"Next to cholera, perhajis, yellow fever is
regarded by many New Yorkers as a playuo
that must be kept away at all hazards.
Every time a man who has been exposed to
tho disease in another port fulls a victim to
it in New York, thcro is a cry of 'Yellow
Jock!' as if an epidemic were threatened.
Wo had a so called epidemic of yellow fever
in 1800 and oidy thirteen persons died from
It. During tho last thirty years not as many
iw two persons a year have died from the
disease in New York, and all the patients
caught the fever elsewhere."
"Typhus fever and smallpox have caused
much alarm in tho city at times, but they
have been suppressed in great measure. Last
year the deaths from typhus fever numbered
only fourteen, and the deaths from smallpox
"I remember that in 1881 thero was much
excitement among medical men and many
other New Yorkers because smallpox caused
451 deaths, and 100 persons died from ts phus
fever, yet the same year over 4,000 children
died from diphtheria and scarlet fever. In
an average year over 8,000 persons, mostly
children, die from diphtheria, scarlet fever,
measles and whooping cough in the eity, yet
we are not half as much excited about such a
slaughter of tho innocents as wo ought to be.
These four diseases are called 'preventable,'
because it is claimed that a child will not
take any of them without exposure to con
tagion." New York Tribune.
Family Economy In Germany.
As a people wo have not learned tho art of
getting the most out of what we have. With
our larger incomes and better opportunities
wo often enjoy far less of comfort and con
tentment than our foreign brethren, who
with their limited resources have learned
how to husband and to make the best of tho
little that falls to their lot. Those who have
seen the inside of life, in France and Germany
know how true this is. I well remember how
it impressed me in my first experience in
Germany. Living in a private family, my
breakfasts, which, though consisting only of
the usual rolls and coffee, were nevertheless
ample, were always brought to my room.
With the coffee there came invariably a little
jar of milk and some lumps of sugar. Dur
ing tho whole six months of ray stay in that
house, the number of lumps was never more
nor less than five. An American lady living
in another family in tho same city was wont
to aver her conviction that her landlady
counted the grains of coffee for every potf ul
she mode. Every Ecrap of food was utilized.
idKe economics were mamiestea every
where, indeed, they were a part of common
education, not only at home but at school,
where, for instance, the girls were taught to
sew and mend as they were to read and write.
And when I went about with the people and
saw how they lived; how contentedly and
pleasantly they took the affairs of life; how
much they mado of simple and inexpensive
pleasures ; how little they were beset with f also
pride or show and the petty ambition to go
ahead of their neighbors, which are such cor
rosive influences in American and English
society; how much of human kindness and
home joy and social satisfaction they had
with incomes and prices which would make
life for average Americans of similar station
a torturing struggle with want I could not
avoid tho conviction that in their ways was a
lesson which it would be a blessing for us to
learn. Prof. Y . O. Atwater in The Century,
How the Shah of Persia Looks.
Ho was born in 1830, hi3 mother being
Maedeh Alia, daughter of the Kadjar chief,
Kaseem Khan. Neither mother or son was
ever a favorite with Mehmed Shah; and
even at tho hour of his birth Nusr-ed-Deen"s
mother was virtually in banishment in a vilr
lag near Tabriz, not many miles from tho
Caucasian border line of Asiatic Russia. Tho
young prince exhibited the outward charac
teristics of his race even more plainly.lhaq
had his father. lie looks quite otherwiso
than does the modern Persian of pure lin
eage. His eyes have a melancholy, veiled
look and are too near tho nose; he is of taller
stature six feet high whereas tho Persians
average about five feet five inches ; ho ha3
decided bow-legs and his organs of speech
are so fashioned that even at the present djy
he can not properly pronounce the Parsee,
with its innumerable hoarse gutturals and its
odd vowel sounds.
His mother did not speak Persian, but only
a dialect of Turkish, and as this, too, is spo
ken universally in that part of Persia in
which he was brought uj, tho prince habit
ually spoke Turkish till his accession to tho
throne, and learned Persian in a desultory
manner, as one would master a foreign lan
guage. Even today the shah speaks Parse
much as he does French with a strong for
eign accent to it; and there are many words
in Persian that he is unable to pronounce at
all, such as the phrase "kheilee khoub" (very
well), which recurs hundreds of times a day.

Two ladies were purchasing mufflers at tho
counter of a leading clothing store. Said
one, turning to her friend:
"I am buying this for Albert I , How
do you like it?"
"Very handsome,'' returned the friend ad
miringly, "but it is pink and Albert D
has red hair I You must get a blue one."
"We are out of blue mufflers," said tho
obliging clerk as he placed the pink one in a
more inviting light.
"Red and pink cannot go together," said
the friend, decidedly.
"He he might dye hi 3 hair?" suggested
the clerk, facetiously.
"That's so," said tho customer with a sigh
of relief, "I'll take it. I'm not responsible
for his hair anyway," she added as sho paid
