bailing out the Journal office. As th.

journalistic corner had been interrupter

river overflowed its banks and f! od.r

There are enough musical republi

for campaign purposes. Sue
an organization would assist at 'an
meeting during the campaign as mate

little variation would lend life to Mich
meeting. In the surrounding towi
campaign chorus societies hiye been or
ganized consisting of fourteen or nfti
young ladies and gentlemen, and the?
purpose has proven effectual.
Mr. John W. Clark, of Weepim

lieve there is some under handed woj k
in the matter and that the agitation par
tially originated in this city. However,
we know that when the eventful day
does come around, the republicans ol
Piattsmouth will surely do their home
proud by their turnout and also make
their hosts of Ashland feel their pres
ence. The rally which occurred at Glen
wood some time ago was helped out
wonderfully by a delegation from Platts
roouth and there has ever since been a
fond remembrance, "hut since so much in
terest is now manifested, we feel confi

rallies from this city that it will surprise

As I stand gazing from ray study win

C feet deep, ti feet wide. In it stand be
tween forty and fifty Italians, shag-gy
haired, bright eyed." bronzed skinned, fur
rowed with dirt, their hauds, knuckles,
their clothes tha commonest and cheapest
obtainable. They're working. The iirst
thought which occurs is, where are the

The sseoTid thought is, why pay these
men for this kind of work? What kind
of work? Lazy work. Why, there's a
group standing immediately in front of
mo now, three of them leaning on picks,
two of them on shovels, while another
lozily tosses a half shovelful of dirt frora
tho bottom of the trench en to tho wind
row by its side. They don't begin to
earn tha traditional dollar a day, yet
there they arc, and it is a very serious
problem, first, what has become of tho
irish, to' whom this great work was
formerly intrusted alone? and, second, by
what process of reasoning do contractors
find it to bo to their advantage to hire
such lazy workers cs these fellows show

A Novel Social Kntertainment.
Another novelty in the line of social
entertainment is what might be called
the reminiscent lecture. It was invented,
I believe, by a lady of excellent family,
advanced in years and Impoverished by
financial misfortunes, but whose social
position is beyond assault. Kho baa
added considerably to her income by de
livering drawing room talks upon her re
collections of American society in the past,
to subscribers, at $10 a course, out of tho
ranks of the society of tha present. Now
and then, when she stops to ttdce a breath,
a pianist plays an air adapted to the oc
casion. This performer Ls her only ex
pense, and as pianists are cheap inst now,
he cannot cut deeply into the lecturer's
profits. At any rate, her gains during
the past winter seem to have been tempt
ing enough to Induce others to enter the
lists, and several are mentioned who will,
during the season to come, inform us
what tho antecedents of Mr. McAllister's
select clan used to say and do in the good
ola times before the war. To iudge from
the couple of lectures that I listented to
last winter, society in the past was neither
as lively nor as interesting as that of to
day, though it was certainly dull enough
to be more respectable, Alfred Trmable
