A NEBRASKA LAW SCHOOL.
The question of a law school is ling
agitated as an addition to the state uni
versity. In process of time such a school
will le demanded and erected without
doubt. The most serious obstacle to the
success of a law school at present is the
laxity of the statutes in respect to ad
missions to the bar. Two years of read
ings is all that is raquired and it is doub
ful if many of the candidates admitted
really spend that time in actual prepara
tion for their " examination."
An attempt was made in the last legis
lature to raise the standard of admission
to the bar, it was sat down upon
with great unanfittity hy the solons,
Until more than two yesm of study are
required by the statutes, it is inipoo&jle
for a law school to le built up that
would pay the state for the expenditure
of uuivcrsity funds on a law department.
The university authorities will never
consent to a course entitling a student
t graduatin of less than three years.
Consequently the law students would for
the most part avoid ths university
law course. Until legislation U bad to
make it tome sort of an inducement fof
candidates for the bar to take a univer
sity law cour. it wwU he compara
tively useless to inaugurate proposed
law school. Lincoln Journai.

he can, with a turn of his hand, apply
every brake in tlie train with the j"iil

him to reach the whistle pull.
W hen there in danger abend there is
generally just one thing to do, and that
i ) to stop as soon as possible. An in

and applying tho brake. With modern
trains this ij all that I necessary or can
be lone. . Reversing the engine is neces
sary on many engines, and formerly was
on all; this would, in fact, Ihj done in
stinctively by old runners, in any case,
but tliis also is done in a second. After
taking these measures thero is nothing
for tho engineman to do but look out for
bis own safety, hi some circumstances,
as in the case of a partially burned
bridge which may possibly support the
train even in a weakened condition, it
may bb ler,t to put on all steam. The
runner is then in a dilemma, and a right
decision is a matter of momentary insni
ration. Many lives liavo been wived by
quick witted runners tn eueh cases, but
Uiere is no ground for censure of the en
gineer, yyho, n the excitement of the

qujeken his speed. The rare cases of
this kind aro what how tho value of ex

acquire experience lessons readily.
PROBABILITIES OF ACCIDENT.
But the terrible cloud constantly hang
ing over the engineer and fireman of a
fait train is the chance of encountering
an oletacle which cannot possibly bo
avoided, and which leaves them no alter
native but to jump for their lives, if in
deed it does not take away even that.
To the fact that this cloud h po larger
than jt u, and t;bat these men haye sturdy
and courageous ' psltures must be attri
buted tho lightness with which it rests
upon them. On one road or another,
froni a washout, or inellieient manage
ment, or a collision caused by an opera
tor's forgetfuluess, or some one of a score
of other causes, there are constantly oc
curring cases of men heroically meeting
death under the most heartrending cir
eumstanuea. ' Every ' month recordti a
number of such, though happily they are
not frequent on any one road.
