D. G- COURTNAY, Chairman. " T. D. COBBEY, Secretary. Lincoln, Neb., April 12, 1888. Outiku for May is a handsomely il lustrated and carefully edited number of tint pepular magazine of Recjcation, Travel, Adventure, and of gentlemanly sport. The new management of Outi-so is evidently determined to givo its pat runs a magazine such as uu lover of out door life can afferd to be withont. Fish ing, Ball Playing, Hunting, Driving, Tramping, Bicycling, Yachting, Camping Canoeing, and kindred spoits, are tho subjects of special articles, and yet tho magazine poscssl3 the literary character of ThtCtntnry and Jla. j'tr'n, and for Hie parlor table and the Jamil v circle is as indispensible as its adinii ably conduct ed contemporaries. I)e Meza, Iteming ton, Beard, Moejner and Knickerbocker are tlic cont.ibui.ing ailit, and their names suilice to show that excellence in illustration is one of the features of the number. The poetical selections and literary sketches are by the best writers of the day. The Rev. Dr. Black is a piece of liction of unusual merit, and is worthy of republication in book form. The opening of the tithing seasen is ap propriately remembered by a well written and handsomely illustrated article on Trout and Grayling, and every lover of piscatorial sport who reads the May Out ixa will sigh for a week's tramp alonj the waters of Michigan. Old Battles on the Baseball Field, from the pen of that well-knewn writer en spo-ts, nenry Chadwick, is a reminiscence which will give pleasure to every veteran of the na tional game, as well as to the juniors wh now handle the bat. The a. ticles by the late General Ma-cy, while they have a particular value for the hunter, are so well written as to prove interest ing te every lover of adventure; and the aitides by Thomas Stevens, Around the World on a Bicycle, which hav hitherto ben a feature of Out:o. interest not only the cycler, but every reader auiious to leara of the nations in the far East, whem Stevens saw under advantages rarely enjoyed by any European traveller in China and Japan. An Outing Nea.: New York suggests falling and hunting grounds, within three hours of the great metropolis, and is as timely as it is full of good points for those who, housed in the big cities, sigh for a breath of fresh ami pure air. Captain Coffin's article, T'ie Death-Blow to International Tacht Kac:ng, w ill command attention not only in America and England, but wherevrr a yatchtsman touches land and can buy a copy of the May Ou xo. How We Drove to Gales is a very readable sto. v of a Summer's outing in a buggy, en joyed by two ladies. Our Canoo Cruise is n sketch of amusing sport enjoyed by several gentlewomen. The records pre sent an epitome of the p:om;neut spott ing events of the month, wh:le the edi toral chat and amusing sporting gossip helps to complete this choice number of the magazine.

TE.-S following lettc was written by General Grant in 1SC3, to General Slier man, and g; ves his reasons for Lis accept :.ig the Republican nomination ior the highest ollice in the girt of the American people. The letter is historical and full of in terest to the every loyal citizen of of this great Republic: "Headquarters Armv TJ. S., Washing ton June, 1863,-Dear Sir: Your kind faror written from New Mex'.co is re ceived. You understand my position exactly; it is one I would not occupy for any mere personal consideration, but from tho nature of the contest, since the close of active hostilities, I haye been forced into it in spite of myself. I could not back down without as it seems to me, leaving the contest for power for the next four years between mere trading politicians, the elevation of whom, no matter which party won, would lose to us largely the results of the costly war which we hava gone through. Now the democrats will be forced to adopt 11 good platform, and put upon it a reliablo man who, if elected, will disappoint the cep perhead element of the'r patty. This yf'.ll be a g'eat poiat gained if nothing more is accomplished. I feel very great ful to the officers ef eur army, whose milUary achievements made my reputa tion well as thsir own, to know that they support me in this new fiald. I do not e-.pect or want active support, but merely the satisfaction ef knowing what your letter assures me 01 on your part. Officers who expect to make the army their heme for life have to serve under successive administrations and should not make themselves obnor.ious to any party likely to come into power. I shall not ask you lo come to Washington until after November, and probably not then. For myself, I erpect lo be away from here most of the time, but I stall keep within telegranh, and being within the limits of my command, will eierciss it. lours Irulv, U. S. Gkat." The sentence, "I could not back down, without, as it s-ems to me, leaving the contest for power for the next four ysars between mere tiading politicians, the ele vation of whom, no matter which party won, would lose us largely the results of the costly war which we have just gone through,,r is something for the American people to considsr at the present day. Give us a nomination for this office once honored by a Lincoln and a Grant that will be abeve the mere "trading politi j clan" a man of national reputation without a spot or blemish upon his pcli- tical life, and the glorious Republican party will once more unturi its uanner only to be feUowed by victory all along the line. Another tb:ng in this remarkable let ter, and one showing the extreme mod- - ij csty of tho great commander, is this: "I feel very grateful to tho oflicers er our army whose military achievements made I mu rei mlalion as well as their own, to r A know that thev sunnort mo in my new field." Could anything be more modest and simple than this the greatest General of this or any other age giving all the credit and glory of his magnificent ca reer to hiR inferiors in command but such was Grant in war or peace. A Warning. The modes of death's approach aro va rious, and statistics show conclusively that more persons die from disease of the throat and lun?3 than any other. It is probable that everyone, without excep tion, receives vast numbers of Tubercle Germs into the system and where these trcrms fall 11 Don suitable soil they start into life and develop, at first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling sensation in the throat and if allwwed to continue their ravages they extend to the lungs produc ing Consumption and to the head, caus ing Catarrh. Now all this is dangerous and if allowed to continue will in time cause death. At the onset you must act with promptness; allowing a cold to go without attention is dangerous and may loose yeu your life." As soon as you feel that something is wrong with your throat, lunirs or nostrils, obtain a bottle of Bos- sliee's German Syrup. It will giye you immediate relief. Effect of the Climate.

The Famoui Novellat Points Out tho Placoa Where Ha Found His Charac ters Meeting Dick Swlveler and II111 Sykea Little Nell. "Dickens ! Yes, in his way he was a Shakes- pearel" And Lloyd wheeled around in his chair, and faced me with unnaturally bright eyes and a flushed face. I knew that Lloyd was an Englishman, and I heard that had given him a good jxwition on a London jiaper when he came to this country, but he has told me very little about himself. How the name of Dickens cropped out in our conversation I cannot now re member, but when it was mentioned Lloyd became enthusiastic. "I spent a wonderful night with him once," be said, lighting a fresh cigar, "and when vou mentioned his name it all came back to mo It was in '58 or '59. At that time I had tho police department on The South London Journal. Without stretching it at all, I think I may say that I had niado some little reputation for myself. "Well, to cut a lone story short, I was working away at my desk one evening, when Inspector Davis came in. " 'What do you say to going tho rounds with me to-nightT said the inspector. " 'Thanks,' I replied, 'but I am rather busy and cannot very well go.' " 'Sorry,' responded the inspector; 'I am to take Mr. Dickens along, and I took it for granted that you would want to go.' " 'Charles Dickens!' I shouted. 'Is he really going with youT " 'That is tho arrangement,' said the in spector. 'Can't you moot us at Bull's at 11 f "You may rest assured that I promised. I wrote several notes to my reporters, and some minutes before 11 1 turned up at Bull's, a third rate restaurant on Oxford street. In spector Davis and another gentleman had iust finished their supper. Of course, the other gentleman was Sir. Dickens. When I was introduced to him he drew mo aside in a pleasant way. " 'Newspaper manf ho said. 'Well, I like all newspaper men. I ought to, you know, for I hod a devil of a time myself as a re porter.' "I made some sort of an answer, but Mr. Dickens went on to say: " 'After all, you newspaper men, you re porters, ore the real novelists of the day. Your realistic stories of the comedies and tragedies of life cannot be surpassed.' " 'how is tho time to catch 'em, said the inspector, looking at his watch. "Tho programme for the nightembraeed a ramblo through some of the by streets be tween Holborn and Oxford streets. Without tho inspector it Avould have been a dangerous trip. Tho first place we visited was a thieves' lodging house. Fully 100 men were stretched on tno lioor, most or tnem asleep, Dut some were wide awake. One of the lodgers seized Mr. Dickens by the lapel of his coat. '"D your ho growled, 'what do you want herer " 'Ask me that question to-morrow and Pll answer you,' said Mr. Dickens, with a laugh, and he handed the fellow his card. " 'islast my CA-esr exclaimed the man. Well, sir, ycu are among frionds here. I Eay, Air. iJicitens, may 1 sena out for some ale or something?' " 'No, we can't wait,' replied the inspector, 4we must visit other places, and you wouldn't like to bother Mr. Dickens.' " 'Divil a bit of it!' exclaimed an Irish man, who had overheard the conversation, 'but I must shake bands wi you.' "After a few more handshakes we left and wont out into a purer atmosphere. A gin palace stood in our way and a sudden thirst overcame me. " 'Come in, boys,' said Mr. Dickens, 'if we aro going to make a night of it we must pre pare for it.' "Wo had a jolly tune Inside. Mr. Dickens chaffed the barmaids, and they giggled like anything. Inspector Davis, too, was at his best. But when he left, the inspector must have whispered something, for one of the barmaids ran after us and gave' Mr. Dickens a little flower, saying, 'Oh, sir, you have done so much for us I' 'The inspector nudged me, and I thought about it, and 1 am thinking about it yet. 'At one place Mr. Dickens was in high glee, lie pointed out a young leilow in a tawdry suit of clothes, and asked us if he was not a regular Dick Swiveler, and the man did seem to fill the bill exactly. " 'There is Bill Sykes,' he said at the last place we visited, a low cellar, in the very worst quarter. 'The man waa the very picture of Bill Sykes, but he overheard Mr. Dickens, and came forward in a belligerent way. 'Stand back there!' said Inspector Davis,, don t you know mei 'I know you,' answered the ruffian, 'but I am going to mash this fellow's nose.' "'Mr. Dickens, this is Mr. Chick Dyke,' said the inspector, laughing. " 'ot our Charles Dickens!' exclaimed the Other. " 'The same,' was the answer. "Well, that Bill Sykes fellow almost hugged Mr. Dickens. And they were all that way. but the insr.torstoPpedhim and promised to call m the daytime. He said that it was I dangerous to show money in that quarter at night. 'In tho lost house we visited there was a little golden haired girl curled up in the arms of an old man. " 'There is little Nell, I broke out. " 'You are right,' Mr. Dickens answered. as he pressed my hand. 'We must look after her to-morrow, and after seeing her we had better go. I feel broken up.' 'I was glad to get away and so was In spector Davis. We went back to Oxford street and had a high old time at a chop house until the morning, .air. JJicKens was as jolly as a man could be. He gave us no end of good advice, and even approved of my scheme of going to the United States. 'I like those Americans,' he said; 'they like me.1 "Human nature, wasn't it? Shortly after that I left England, and I never saw Charles Dickens again. I know that you will think my little glimpse of the man a very unsatis factory episode, but you were not there. You did not see the man. If you had felt the pressure cl ms nana, and looted into ms clear eyes, and heard his cheery voice, you would feel as I do now when hi3 name is men tioned." Lloyd puffed away at his cigar, and I soon convinced him that I thoroughly understood him. A night with Dickens is something to bo remembered with delight, and it is no wonder that Lloyd felt proud of his little ad venture. The Criterion. Japan's Largest Paper.
