Suddenly she started. She saw some

Who is Your Best Friend?
Your stomach of course. "Why ? Be
cause if it is out of order you are one of
the most miserable creatures living. Give
it a fair chance and see if it is not the best
friend you have in the end. Don't smoke
in the morning. Dont drink in tin
morning. If you must smoke and drink
wait until your stomach is through with
breakfast. You can drink more and
smoke more in the evening and it will tell
on you less. If your food ferments and
does not digest right- if you are troubl
ed with Heartbnrn, Dizzniess of the head,
coining up of the food after eating, bil

of the stomach, you had best use Green's

A Crand Army Love Feast A Large
Audience Greeted Lozier.
Rock wood hall was crowded last eve
ning with one of the best entertained
audiences that probably was ever as
sembled iu that auditorium.
Chaplain Lozier was introduced by S.
P. Vanatta about 8 o'clock whon he be
gan. The Chaplain, in his eloquent man
ner gave the O. A. K. boys a good lect
ure on patriotism that might have been
unappreciated by certain dough-face
elements of the fraternity who are sap-
posed to have been very poor soldiers.
The Glee Club as usual did itself
proud, and were very ably assisted by
Mrs. D. A. Campbell aud Miss Paul.
Miss Wiles reciUd Barbara Fritchie that
was well received, but Mr. Lozier
brought down the hous, when he ?ave
a German recitation of the same poem.
The Chaplain sang some of his own
productions that were pronounced par
The entertainment closed with some
hurcorous recollections of the prison, and
a song. "lially round the flag boys," was
sung with all the G. A. K. men joining
in the chorus, that was soul-stirring
in its effect on the old soldiers.
Lincoln Council Again Sustained.
Fnt:i the lire's Lincoln Bureau.
A decision in the case cf Martin vs. the
State was handed down by the supreme
court yesterday, which contains an im
portant interpretation of the Slocumb
Martin operated the saloon in the St.
Charles hotel in this city, and last sum
mer was found guilty in police court of
violating the state lw and ordinance.
Tito police judge certified to the council
the conviction, and the body, under the
Slocumb law, declared Martin's license
forfeited. The cast was taken on an ap
peal to the district court and heard by
Judge Chapman, who held that it was
the duty of the council to revoke the
license, and that the hearing en the ques
tion of revocation was necessary. Upon
this finding in the district an appeal was
taken to the supreme court, and the de
cision atlirmiug the lewer court was
handed down yesterday. The decision
is as follows:
Martin vs. State. Error from Lancaster
county. Affirmed. Opinion by Keese,
1. Section J2 of chapter 13 of the
compiled statutes of 1837, goveraing ci
ties of the rirst class in this state, provides
that the license of a person selling intox
icatcng liquors shall be revoked by the
mayor and council upon conviction of
the licensee of any violation of any law,
ordinance or regulation appertaining to
the sale of such liquors. Where the hold
er of a license was convicted of the vio
lation of the law pertaining to thosalo of
intoxicating liquors in the police court of
the city of Lincoln, and the fact of 6uch
conviction was duly certified by the po
lice judge to the mayor and council it
was held: First, that the mayor and
council were authorized and required to
revoke the license; second, that no notice
to the licensee of such proposed action
was necessary; third, that suth revocation
could be declared by resolution, and that
the passing of an ordinance was not nec
essary. 2. In such cass, where the resolution di
rected the marshal to notify the licensee
that the license had been revoked by the
mayor and council, there could be no pre
sumption that the mayor was not present
st such meeting, it being his official duty
to preside at all meetings of the council.

To part and meet again no more, s

Perchance one heart may never mora
Regain the peace it knew before;
If one must weep and one forget

But one shall mourn the moment sped
And peace of heart no more regain;

CENTRAL PARK'S POLAR BEARS.
They Kejoice Greatly at the Coming of
the Illizzard Tricky Creatures.
Tho Polar bears appeared to be in a first
rate humor. Their gray eyes sparkled with
lire, and they tumbled and tossed and Ixjxed
with each other as if they bad been imbibing
an early morning iuvigorator. They had
broken through the ico in their tank, and
every few minutes Tom or Jorry would souse,
himself in the water and come out pulling
and steaming as if emerging from a Turkish
bath, while tho water dripping from his long
white fur turned to drops of ico in tho cold
air. In the adjoining section of tho bear pit
are three black bears and a young grizzly.
Tho cold weather had niado them sleepy, and
they were packed away in the corner of tho
cave at the end of tho pit, their heads con
cealed, and tho mass looking like a great pack
of fur rugs. The Polar bears, which Diree
tor Conklin secured two years ago, are
nearly five years old. They ore now about
half grown and are thriving vigorously.
"They hain't ben very well this winter,"
added the keejer, "because it's ben so warm,
and they've got disgusted like with tho
weather. Tom would sit u on his hind legs
for hours munching up an icicle un;l looking
sorrowfully at them weather fixin's on top of
tho arsenal, and saying as plain as could bo:
'I wonder how long this kind of thing i3
goin' to last.' On a cold stormy night they
wouldn't go to bed at all, but jest stayed
frisking and growling about in the suow.
When a blizzard is coming they can tell as
well as any barometer, and Jerry sho'll
jump into tho tank and splatter tho water
all over tho floor of tho pit so it'll freeze, and
they can slide and tumble over it Fact, tho
honest truth; I've saw it a dozen times."
"Do you have any trouble attending to
them."' asked tho listener.
"Well, wo don't go up and pat 'em on the
back much. All bears is tricky and don't
like fondlin', but especially Polar lears.
They treat you all l ight at a distance, but if
you como close they're uglj-. Them black
bears are not so bad, but tho grizzly in with
Vin is growia' big and he won't stand any
fooling. When the sun comes out good and
strong they'd be up as lively as ever, but if
they had a hole big enough in the roc ks I
expect the3''d go in and sleep through tho
col 1 weather. We don't let people get too
close to them, though the bears look 'very
gcutlo when they're playin'." -New York
A New Torpedo Boat.
An invention that is likely to revolutionize
fighting, and prove a powerful protection to
cities and harbors from hostile attacks, is
Gen. Berdan's torpedo boat. It is a plate
steel war ram of high speed, with double
ends, decked like a ferryboat, and carrying
attachments that w ill plant torpedoes in tho
bottom of a craft at a great distance in a
short time. It is a double ender, with screws
and steering apparatus at each end. The spur
is only six feet long, and is intended to jene
trate that distance into a ship when it is
overhauled. The deck is rounded like a ferry
boat, and can stand a severe shock. It has a
radius of twelve degrees, which protects tho
spur when tho ram approaches at an angle
less than forty-five degrees. With this, it is
said, there can ho no loss or breaking of
spurs. The smoke stack and steam pipe aro
built to telescope when within a mile of tho
enemy's ship, and the ram can then run the
remainder of the distance on reserved steam.
At tho moment of contact it is only necessary
to turn a lever, which liberates a long,
jointed arm of positive motion, and this will
carry the torpedo through tho water and
plant it firmly in tho bottom of the other
ship, which cannot hope to escape. To pro
tect the ram from small torpedo boats of tho
eueniy, it can bo accompanied by two small
vessels of the same character, AU four of
tho torpedoes oan bo exploded at once. It is
said that these torpedo boats will prevent
any possibility of a city's being shelled.
"Expectation" of Life.
In its closing issue for the year 1880 The
Lancet publishes an article on "Comparative
Mortality in England and America." From
an examination of the Qxppricnca tables of
lifo insurance covering considerably more
than 4,000,000 years of life under observation
it ajjpears that tho "expectation of life" of
insured males in this country at '20 years of
ago is 4'2. 1 years, which exceeds by one year
tho "expectation of life" of English males at
tho same cge. This advantage continues
until the advanced ago of 8-1 is reached.
There is no difference in tho "expectation"
between American women and English wo
men at this age 20 years; but alterward
a::d ur.til tho age cf 47 the American "cxpeo
tnt ion" is better than tho English. Beyond
this latter ago tho English women seem to
Lave tin? better of it, until at 80 there 13 a
year in their favor.
We use the word "seem" advisedly. As a
matter of fact American women do not,
of course, grow any older after they have bc
como just as lovely as they can be; and this
period is reached, according to these tables,
somewhere between tho ages of 20 and 47.
After this latter ago our American matrons
can a fiord to let thoir English sisters "cat.h
up" with them. Chicago Hews.
Working? a 'Sexv Scheme.
"There's an item for you," said a gentle
man in the postofnee, just as a dudish look
ing fellow darted out of tho Seneca street
door and disappeared in ths crowd. "Half
an hour ago," ho continued, "I met that chap
ou Main street, and ho took out a letter and
asked me for two cents to mail it. Ho said
ho had just struck town and was dead busted.
I gavo him ten cents, and in less than two
minutes he tackled another man with tho
same story. That fellow gave him five cents ;
another gave him a stamp, and so on. I have
been watching him for half an hoar, and
finally, after making something like a dollar,
he came in here, I suppose, to mail his letter.
I was just waiting for an ofHcer to have him
arrested, but the sneak got on to me, and I
guess I've lost him. He has hit a new scheme
and it seems to work like a charm." Buffalo
A Puzzled Savage.
Writing was puzzling to savages. In South
Africa on one occasion, a native was sent by a
missionary to a friend with a note and four
Joavps of bread. The native ate one on tho
way, and was amazed to find that the note
discovered bis tlmft, Qn the next occasion
when be was sent with four loaves he sat ou
the note while eating one of them. In North
America writing was considered a charm.
