The Republican electors of the State of
Nebmska are requested to send delegates
from the several counties, to meet iu con
vention, at the city of Omaha, Tuesdaj',
May 15, 168, at 8 o'clock p. in., for the
purpose of electing lour delegates to the
National Republican Convention, which
lnccU ia Chicago June 1888.
The several counties are entitled to re
presentation as follows, being based upon
the vote cast for Hon. Samuel Maxwell,
(upreme Judge, in 1S87, giving one del-cgate-at-large
to each county, aud one
for each 150 votes and major fraction
egg. The listening ear catches so many
sounds unheard the winter through.
Though blind, a man may hear the com

and deaf, may feel its thrilling touch, as

TOLD IN A BOOK.
Thk increase of nearly 0 per cent in
bank clearances in the principal cities of
the country, taken in the aggregate, laat
week, was hardly expected. Tim aver
age recently has been below that of last
jear. There was a falling of iu March
in thirty-two cities to the extent of about
13 per cent. Part of this was due to tin
big blizzard in the East and part to the
strikes on Western railroads. The great
er portion of the decrease was in New
York, and was largely due t th torpor
on the commercial exchanges. Iu Ja?t

At r-ccond and third hand wo may imagine
our aathor to have gathered the account ho
gives us of the terrible things that are done
ia the teaching hospitals. Hero are two of
Lis il -lustrations of the treatment of mori
biuid fiatientd. A nurso calls a house surge-.
"'.sister says the thinks ho is dying fast,
nnd iro you going to operate' 'Going to
opcra.e? Rather think I was. l)on"t you

s-.':-, si has been waiting about the hospital
u!! d:ry.' 'All riht, then! Now, gentlemen,
1 1 hu..:ueas. You Khali see me do something
pretty.' The bell rang for tho optiation to
usso::;'ilo the students, some of whom said 'it
w;i.i a beastly shame to torture n poor wretch
who h ain't a chanco of getting over it.' 'Ah,
you won't talk liko that when you are house
sar.ei -n (II. B. they always termed it) your

father, if you can't get anybody else. Be
sides what are hospitals for, if not to qualify

'Here is a middle aged woman, evidently

to perform upon her r. capital operation.
He ha not the least hojj it can save her life,
but the chance of performing such an opera
tioa arises but seldom, audit is but just und
kud to the house surgeon, who wants all tho
practical work ho can get, to let him assist.
So the woman and her friends arc duly
prc-si 1 to consent that this 'the only means
of su ing her life' shall forthwith be done.
To t'n '.3 end all the nurses are instructed to

AN APRIL DA Y.
A ioft wind has blown nil dav. The
sky has been now sunny, now specked
with fleecy clouds, now black and threat
cuing. Quick showers at intervals Lave
chased ?ach othor, followed by bursts of
brightest sunshine, and g impsesof cther
lal blue as deep and brilliant as any
f utnnu-r sky can show. The earth lies
bare and brown as yet, but one can al
most feel it palpitate with eager longing
to say "yes" to the bold sun's ardent woo
ing. The quickening life under its yield
ing crust makes itself felt, though not
yet seen. We can alnv-st hear the whis
pered answer of the tiny grass-blades to
the impatient skies that coax and threat
eu them : "We are coming ! A little
more sunshine, please; a few more warm
and soaking showers, and you shall see
our shining leal-blades stretching upward
at your call."
Along the edges of the roads, and bor
dering every moister hollow, a faint and
lovely green gives promise of swift com
ing verdure. The trees have taken on a
new expression. Yesterday they looked
dead and frozen. Today the sap is flow
ing, and has reached the top-most limit
of the slenderest twig that trembles on
tl.eir branches. A warm glow of tender
color has mounted with it and the whole
tree is instinct with new life. It seems
to throb from root to crown with the vi
tal current that permeates its every tissue
The cattle sniff the mellow air with keen
est relibh. They know the signs good
Mother Earth employs to herald summer
plenty. The birds know too. Sse !
Yonder fly the robin and the meadow
lark, come now to stay, and to nest and
raise their brood. Y ho told them spring
was here ? The tiny creatures know some
things that man can never fathom. The
mariner needs chart and compass to find
his way across the ocean. These little
birds fly through the broad expanse that
circles earth and sea alike, across wide
continents and ovsr flowing rivers,
straight to their summer homes, without
such helps. - ,
Even, the flies are stirring. There buz
zes one;against the window, come from
who knows where ? This one 1ms doubt

some snug corner out of reach of broom

Oyster Shells in Med'cines.
Dr. Peter Hood, of London, iu a coramuni-
i-.-.Lion to The Lancet, calls attention to au
miclo published by him in the same journal
.! twenty years ago, on the value of cal-
ei rm carbonate in the form of calcined oy-
hicr shells, as the means of arresting tho
rov.ih of cancerous tumors. In the case
which he then reported, that of a lady
ii.-.:rly 80 years old, the growth sloughed
away anu lets a ueaituy suriace alter a
coursa of the remedy in questiou, as much
a-i would lie on a shilling being taken once or
twice a day in a littlo warm water or tea.
Ho now reports another case of schirrus of
tho I reast, m the wife of a physician, ia
wiucu the treatment was followed by an ar
rest of tho growth and a cessation of the
pain, the improvement having now lasted
for years, and no excrudescence having thus
far occurred. Dr. Hood says that the rem
edy can do no harm, and that the prima
faeio evidence in its favor i3 certainly
stronger than that on which rests the use of
chiaa turpentine, so eagerly resorted to by
the profession. He would restrict tho trials
to well marked cases of schirrus, and no
benefit should be looked for in less than three
mouths. New York Tribune.

Quietness of Italian Kesnrts.
The Italians, as a class, are most polite and
good natured. They are very curious, but
their curiosity is never annoying. I do not
think there is any country on the continent
where the visiting royalties could l as free
as they are here at San Remo. When the
young princesses here go our to walk they
are never followed about, nor are they ever
stared at by even the easauts. They look
ai them with kindly interest and politely
ttiucu their hats, but they are never obtru
sive. 1 no watering place manners of iiaicr-
laiid will bear no comparison with tho quiet
ness and gentleness of tho people in tho
neighborhood of Italian resorts. The royal
princesses of England cannot visit am' of
tho sea places of Eng.and and attempt to
walk ia public without being followed by
such' a mob as to force them at once into re
tirement. T. C. Crawford in New York
