Presented With an Organ.
When any society or association, ia
organized with a definite aim it ia not
necessary for a person to be directly in
terested to note its success or failure.
Such is the case in this of the Young
men's Christian Association. The earnest,
zealous efforts of those immediately con
cerned in the association here have been
rewarded with such success as to win the
merited notice of many prominent busi
ness men. Since organizing in their
rooms last October (which were partially
by donations and from the funds of the
association) the Y. M. C. A. has accom
plished much in its work that of hav
ing comfortable parlors and reading
rooms for men ouly, open day and night,
where young men can spend their time,
free of cost to them, and in a profitable
manner, instead of wasting their time and
money in places of no good influence or
benefit to them; and not the least in
holding men's gospel meetings Sunday
afternoons, at which a lare attendance
has constantly been had, with many con
The need of an organ in the rooms has
been felt for some time, Lyt all planning
for it was happilv ended, and in a mo
ment most unexpected, a few days ago,
Tuesday Jlr. C. E. Wescott a prominent
liusineus man, handed t Secretary Both
well, of the Y. M. C. A., a communica
tion to the board of directors of the as
a ciation, in which Mr. Wescott acknowl
edged the power for good in the associa
tion and offered to manifest his appre
ciation of it by presenting to them a fine
fisty organ. The proposition was most
thankfully accepted and yesterday after
uoon a bran new Eaty organ was delivered
it the Y. M. C. A. rooms and placed in
the parlor where it will remain as the
property of the association, to be an
attractive and helpful feature of all
meetings, and a subject far kindest
regards towards Mr. Wescott by all in
terested. With a Young Men's Christian Asso
ciation in Plattsmouth ucb as this town
is capable of supporting with good
business material in it, an unlimited
amount of lasting good will be accom
plished. It is a good home for young
nen, and the influence there is only such
as is good for men in public or private
life, and every movement to advance the
in'erest of this organization in Platts
mouth deserves the hearty co-operation
of all. The attention given the Y. M. C.
A. by some of the business men of this
city in aiding the secretary, is what has
brought about its success thus far, but
the work is great enough for all to
p ti ticipate.
The following is the proposition made
by Mr. Wescott to the Association:
Plattsmouth, Neb., Feb. 19. 1889.

gratefully accepted your generous offer,
and directed the secretary to conyey to

sympathy with the Association and its
work. The want of an organ in the
meetings of the Association has been
greatly felt, and various plans have been
proposed to supply it.
Now, without any agency of our own,
an instrument much better than we hoped
to procure is presented to the Associa

A Fight With Tramps.
Early this morning six trumps entered
the B. & JiL. depot waiting room, present
ing bold fronts and brazen faces. Every
man who entered the room was tackk-cl
by one or more of the gang for a "quar
ter, and he was greeted by the usual
statement, "I've had nothing to eat for
four days."
Mr. Connor, who happened to drop
1 :to the depot, took sympathy on the
aang and paid for a lunch for the puty,
who covered it in a very short time.
Officer Fitzpjitrick was informed of the
presence of the g:ing, and went into the
room to Iiu-tlo them nut.

Queen of Scots from tho bulky catalogue

one the executioners held hir streightly
with one of his hands, the other gave
two strokes with an axe before ho did
cutt (off) hir head, and yet lef te a little
grissle behinde. She made a very small
noyse, no part stirred from the place
where she laye. The executioners Lifted
upp tho head, and bade God save the
queen. Then hir dressinge of laune fell
from her head, which appeared as graye
as if sheo liad been three-score and ten
ycares olde, powled very short. Hir face

Women Oug;ht Xot to Toil.
I think the women who have been en
gaged in tho struggle for equal rights
have done some good for women in the
direction of obtaining equal wages for
equal work. There has also been for
many years a tendency among women
in our country to become independent
a desire to make their own living to
win their own bread. So many husbands
are utterly useless, or worse, that many
women hardly feel justified in depend
ing entirely on a husband for the future.
They feel somewhat safer to know how
to do something and earn a little money
themselves. ,
If men were what they ought to be,
few women would bo allowed to labor
that is to say, to toil. It should be the
ambition of every - healthy and intelli
gent man to take care of, to support, to
make happy, some woman. As long as
women bear tho burdens of the world
the human race can never attain any
thing Like a splendid civilization. There
will be no great generation of men until
there has been a great generation of
women. For my part, I am glad to hear
tliij question discussed glad to know
that thousands of women take some in
terest in the fortunes and in the mis
fortunes of their sisters. Robert G. In-,
