Tiik people of this city wfll not soon
forget who it was who bi ought u ganj;
of the dctestible Pinkertona to the town
and fastened them like un eye sore on the
community. The loyalty and law-abiding
spirit of lh people was not to be de
fended on to protect private property.
They must be insulted and dragooned
into maintaining tin; pence, forsooth.
Bali ! Plattsmouth Journal.
The Pinkertons are eye-sores to men
who wish to break the law or sec some
one else do it. If Brother Sherman's
neighbor locks his smoke-house it need
not worry Brother Sherman unices lie has

depended on the "loyalty" of its private
citizens, but -he was badly left. While
wc do not think there is any danger or
u riot, wc feci equally as comfortable
when we know there is no danger.
Tiik mayor of the city was very ready
to swear in an unknown gang of non
residents of the city and state as a special
police, but when petitioned by a body of
respectable business men to swevr in some
of our own citizens for polico purposes
he declined to do it. It is safe to say
that if the mayor did not depend for his
job on the dictum of the railroad author
ities his ideas of duty would be different.
Plattsmouth Journal.
It is also safe to say, if the editor of
the Journal was not a moral coward,
and was poscssed with a wholesome re
gard for the truth, he would never have
written the above. The mayor at the
beginning of the strike appointed twelve
of our citizens as special police, and
while they probably are doing very well
the company discovered they did not
attempt to keep enemies of the company
from getting aboard their engines and in
terfering with the running of the their
trains either by buying off the engineers
or by making it appear to the so called
"scab" that his job would only last a few
days,, unless he gave up his engine and
joined the strikers; this being a fact
company secured police who were
residents and unacquainted with
no i)
people; the result has been, no one
now in any way meddling with the com
panies property or business, and thty are
here to see that this happy condition of
things continues. Tiie Journal man
wants to make a little cheap capital by
posing as the friend of labor, that is the
milk of the cocoanut and while we are
willing to see him pose, we wish to hold
lijui as near the truth as possible. Thi
paper has always insisted that the cngin
cers residing here are an exceptionally
intelligent lot of gentlemen, there is no
better class of men in the city but they
have made a mistake, as they are no
more infallible than others, and it is the
smcerest desire of The Herald that this
mistake may be rectified with as little
delay and loss to the engineers as possi
ble. How Men Die.
If we know all the methods of approach
adopted by an enemy we are the better
enabled to ward off the danger and post
pone the moment when surrender becomes
inevitable. In many instances the inher
ent strength of the body suffices to enabk
it to oppose the tendency toward death.
Many however have lost these forces to
suh an extent that there is little or no
help. In other cases a little aid to the
weakened lungs will make all the differ
ence between sudden deatli and many
years of useful life. Upon the first symp

The Masqalto of Trinidad.
Tlio jwirticular room assigned to myself
would have been equally de-lightful, but that
my iKwse&sion of it was disputed even in day
light by musquitoes, who, for bloodtliirsty
ferocity bad a bad pre-eminence over the
worst that I had ever met with elsewhere. I
killed one who was at work upon me, and ex
amined him through a glass. Jiowick, with
the inspiration of genius, had drawn hii ex
act likeness as the devil u long black stroke
for the body, a nick for a nock, horns on the
head and a teak for a mouth, Kji udlo arms,
uinl longer spiudlo legs, two pointed wings
and a tail, bine for lino there the figuro
was before me which, in tho unl'orgetable
tailpiece, is driving the thief under the gal
lows, and I hod a melancholy satisfaction in
identifying him. I hud been warned to be
ou the lookout for scorpions, eentitedes, jig
gers and land crabs, who would bite me if I
walked sliperlcss over the floor in the dark.
Of theso I met with none, either there r
anywhere; but the musquito of Trinidad is
enough by himself. For malu-e, mockery
and venom of tooth and trumpet ho is with
out a match in tho world. J. A. Froude.
A Memorable Incident.
Charles Iteudo, the Knglish novelist, once
ui-companied a iarty of friends to tho opera
in Dresden. Wagner's "Lohengrin' was on
that evening, and here is Rcade's account of
ono memorable incident related to that per
formance: "We had taken front scats in a proscenium
box. Suddenly a stranger took a Feat behind
us and expressed himself in such sentences as
'Ach hiiumel! Sohrgut! Ach sehlect! Schr
S'-hlect!' ami many other gutterals of tho
&imo eort, clapping his hands meanwhile and
stamping like a demented creature until he
locamo absolutely intolerable. As soon as
tho first net was over I sought tho usher and
requested him to have tho lunatic removed.
But I can never hope to give you the gestures
or the expression with which the fear stricken
u:her replied: 'Ach! das ist Heir Wagner '.n

Tho History of Right.
Think how large a part of human nctivity
is consumed in tho endeavor, mostly fruitless,
to settle- questions of right. The whole ma
chinery of justice, with its legislatures, its
.ourts of various instance, its judges, advo
cates and attorneys attends continually upon
this very thing. And yet the glorious uncer
tainty of the law has become a byword. Fleets
and armies are still the last resource of civili
zation for determining the rights of nations.
Now, as in the time of Brennus, the sword is
tho ultimate makeweight in the scale of
justice. It may be said that the history of
right throughout the ages is one long mar
tyrdom. It is ever being crucified afresh
and put to an open shame. But, speaking
generally, we may assert that the idea of
right has hitherto been venerated by man
kind at large as absolute, 6upersensuous, di
vine. W. fc. Lilly in Fortnightly Review.

TTew York is filled with widows.
There are over fifty widows hercvitb in
dividual fortunes ranging from $1,000,000 to
i 15,000,000. A majority of them married
old men, some of them had been married be
fore, others yielded to the inevitable at a
late period of their existence, 3enerally
speaking, the women thus married had spent
the early portion of their lives in teaching,
in housekeeping, or in the marriage state
with other men, Circumstances gave them
a hold upon millionaire this, that or the
other. The hold became a grip, and the grip
developed a tenacity loosened only by the
hand of death. The surrogate's court has
been burdened by contested wills. "Wills

A Pretty "Business" Story.
A rather pretty little story, which has the
merit of being true, is interwoven with the
history of one of the largest grocery houses
in the city. Its founder, one of Pittsburg's
pioneers, Ixsfore he went the way of all flesh
set forth in his will that at his death the
store should be stocked with a complete as
sortment of the goods carried by the firm and
that the store and contents should the be
turned over to the cruel clerk, this was
done. The clerk whose merits won for him
this substantial recognition continued the
business with unvarying success until a few
years ago, when he retired. Not, however
before following the example set by his pre
decessor and employer. The freshly stocked
store was turned over to bis chief right-hand
man, and if the latter is true to the custom
of the house he will do the same for his succes
son Pit ts burg Bulletin.
It seems to iac that ordinary polite
ness, the honest dictates of courtesy,
would suggest to smokers that public
conveyances, public audience rooms,
public eating places, public drinking
places, are for the enjoyment of the
whole public and not for a selfish ma
jority. Men frequently com into my
ofliee with lighted cigarettes and leave
behind them traces of their offense, which
annoy me for hours thereafter.

Helen Faucit's (Lady Jlartin) account of her
irtudy of Shakespearean roles is the most in
teresting and jierhaps tho most really help
ful. But I must confess thut I believe sho
did not havo this thorough und delightful
insight into tho characters till long after sho
had played and, as it were, grown into them.
And though much of tho business hhe sug
gests is extremely ingenious mid delicate, I
think a good deal of it would not be dramat
ically effective. Georgo Ijowcs' 'Actors &in
tho Art of Acting' contains some valualilo
suggestions and many interesting reminis
cences. But let her beware of tho ordinary
commentator and essayist, who is doubtless
extremely clever the oidy trouble is that, ho
is too clever, and finds subtle ies ami hidden
meanings that Shaksimre never dreamed of.
"The great beauty of Shakespeare is his
simplicity nnd intelligibility. Of course,
there is an occasional phrase and word that
may require explanation, but I allmlo to the
characters. They are easily understood, and
you always find tho key in tho play. Take,
for instance, Rosalind. Some people seem
to think that she s hould bo rough and bois
terous. Thoy cannot surely remember the
words in tho first c.ct of tho 'Duko':
ITer smoothueas,
Iler very silence and her patience,
Speak to the peo;le and they i.ity her.
"The best light on Shakespcaro is to bo
found in tho careful study of his own works;
ono will certainly be helped to a better under
standing by a thorough knowledge of history
and by the 6tudy of other writers of tho
Elizabethan period. I gained a great deal
from reading Thomas Lodge's story of 'Rosa
lind.' No actress who does not possess a
poetic temperament will ever mako a success
in Shakespearean parts, and she must not fall
into tho error of thinking that the emotional
temperament is the same thing as the poetic.
The ono is imaginative, the other actual; and
the difference in the results of tho work of
each is similar to the difference between the
work of an artist and a photographer. Tho
purely emotional actress is generally utterly
at sea when she attempts to play the legiti
mate, and tho cause is not hard to find. In
emotional plays what the actress does is of
tho highest importance, and what she says is
of comparatively little moment. She may
gasp, or sigh, or appeal to tho heavenly
powers just as she may feel is most effective,
but it is the physical depiction of tho passion
or the emotion that affects tho audience fay
more than tho words. In the poetic play
what she says is of chiefest moment, and the
action, though illustrative of, must bo subor
dinate to, the text."
"Is not 'Juliet' an emotional part?"
"No, it is a part of passion as intense as
you will, but not of emotion in the sense that
wo apply that word to a play, The f lings
avowed and depicted in tho emotional play
are those of tho neiwous, hysterical tempera
ment. In them tho emotions evoke and rule
tho thought; in poetic plays the thoughts call
forth and govern tho feelings. 'Camille,'
iliss Multon,' 'East Lynne,' are plays of the
emotional order."
"But, lime. Modjeska, you play 'Camille'
in addition to so many Shakesperean parts."
"Yes, but it is tho only one of tho kind I
attempt, and if I succeed fairly hi it, the fact
is due to my having had so thorough a train
ing in every style of acting. And this brings
us back to your supposed young actress. Let
her work well, no matter in what line she is
cast, and she will gain experienco that will
be invaluable. If sho has intelligence and
poetic feeling she will bo able to play the
higher roles when the opportunity comes.
But above all things she must not seek to
begin at the top of the ladder. Very
rarely does an actress who so begins
make any improvement. Fractice only con
firms faults, and the frequent repetition of a
role imperfectly conceived and executed seems
to blunt the perceptions and tho sensibilities.
unfortunately gained my knowledge on this
'lead from experience. During my very fir.t
senuon I was what you ca'l here a 'star.' At the
2nd of it I fortunately had sense enough to
'enow that I was worse than at the beginning-,
mid 'hat if I persevered iu that course I should
never mako nil actress. So I went into a
company and played the smallest parts, and
choso of every kind. I have been even a
drunken servant, and have stood up through
wholo act as a silent super. I could sing,
and had a fair amount of experience in comic
opera. I am almost ashamed to say what
my salary was during this season. It was
tho munificent sum of $-10 a month. I could
not live on that, so the next season I again
went starring. Alter tuat wsts over l was
fortunate in getting into a good company to
play juvenile parts. I was fully five year.,
on the stage lefore I had any established po
sition as a leading woman." New York Tri

Encourage tho Editor.
As a rule, an editor gets about 1,000 kicks
to ono caress. Once in a while be gets a
kind word, and it worms and cheers Lis
weather beaten, storm racked heart to the
innermost core. Most people are afraid to
tell an editor when he writes an article that
particularly pleases them, for fear of making
him proud, wo suppose, but if they find any
thing that does not accord precisely with
their views, they will neglect their business
to hunt him up and tell him of it. Pshaw!
dear friends, don't think you will spoil the
editor by givius him an occasional word
of cheer, any more than you will
spoil your child by complimenting it
upon a piece of patchwork it has fin
ished. Of course you could beat the
job yourself, but that doesn't deter you from
heaping words of encouragement on the
child. It has doao its best. So you could
doubtless beat tle average editor at running
a paper J Of course, you can. The man doej
not live who can't beat an editor at running
a paper. The elitor is willing-to acknowl
edge that you cau. ILj only runs it because
you have not tiu e to; but this fact need rot
deter you from giving lu'ra a word of en
couragement occasionally. Dansville (N. Y.)
