Proverbs bold tbe wisdom of nations.
Substantially they are the same in all
nges. The aphoristic sayings of Solomon
are repeated in Egypt, Arabia, Ilindoo
Btan and the Inlands of the sea. They
commend honor, justice, industry and
virtue. Proverbial sayings are the com
mon coin of the world and pass from
one generation to another. The tones of
the learned perish, but the pithy utter -ancts
are immortal.
"England expects every man to do his
duty," "Don't give up the ship,"
"We've met the enemy and he is ours,"
"The king never dies," with other ap
horistic sayings will live while history
endures. But it was left for our own
generation and our own great county of
Cass to produce the greatest and grand
est proverbial condensation of wisdom
and beauty ever crystalized by the mind
of mortal man, and Harry Race, the ac
complished editor of the Weeping Water
Eagle, is that mortal man. Here is his
grat proverbial utterance: "The people
of Plattsmouth are acting the hog in
elegant shape."
' The editor of this paper rises to ask
why is the wisdom of Solomon lauded
to the skies when we have a man in
Weeping Water who can produce such
wisdom and still no person but the edi
tor of this paper, is sounding his praises.
Prohibition was defeated in Massa
chusetts Monday. The result is not a
surprise. In any community where the
population largely resides in cities and
villages such an outcome is to be ex
pected. The population of Massachus
ctts is more largely in cities aud vi.laget.
than any state in the union, save perhaps
Rhode Island. When one comes to con
sider all the conditions the wonder is net
that prohibition was defeated in Massa
chusetts but that it should have received
so many votes. A small state almost
surrounded by states haying license laws
it would not matter much how well the
laws were enforced, provided prohibition
had carried, there would have been little
d'fficulty in obtaining liquor from the
cities and towns in adjacent states. In
deed this cause more than anything else
has produced the trouble with enforcing
the law in Rhode Island. Trains were
run with reference to accommodating
persons who might want to procure
liquor in cities and towns outside the
state. So that in this way the object ol
the law was defeated and this led to a
lack of enforcement in that state just as
in Nebraska in license times it is a notor
ious fact that a great deal of intoxicating
liquor is sold in drugstores by the drink,
jet comparatively little attention is paid
to it for the reason that it is not generally
considered that drunkenness is thereby
increased as that all the liquor desired
could be obtained at the licensed places
should the drug stores be compelled to
.obey the law.
Then another reason that cG&liib.utcd
to tUe defeat of prohibition in Masi
ebusett as pointed out in dispatches to
the press, was the vote of the farmers
who have orchards and are in the habit of
.making a good many pennies out of cider
each year. For it must be conceded that
the pucketbook is a pretty strong factor
witn tke average American. InXebak
however, conditions are entirely different
from Massachusetts aud many other
eastern states. Here the papulation in
stead of being largely in cities is largely
in the country. Farmers are not engaged
in making cider, and hence their pocket
book would not be affected in that way.
.It is not claimed by sensible men that the
Adaption or rejection of prohibition
Tel.rjska is h"oing to affect the price ui
grain; o no appeal can be made to the
arming community to vote against pro
hibition on the grounds of self interest.
So oar whisky friead need not delude
themsives by thinking that because pro
hibition was defeated in Massachusetts It
wi.ll be defeated in "Nebraska. Iowa a;ul
J 14 3-4 arc instances more nearly in
point. .In population etc., they are very
similar tt Nebraska; and not stopping to
argue at this ttcie whether or not prohi
bition prohibits ia those states, at lenst
this fact will be conceded, that no effort
is making or em be made wkU y how
of success looking to the repeal of pxQ-i
hibition. Every move in tbe legislation
tVere is in the direction of the enacting
of stronger laws and the republican par-1
ity which is solely responsible for this, is
imorc-strongly intrenched in power, if
, possible, than ever before juding from
he resale of the late elections. The ,
claim that prohibition injures in a bus
iness way is not sustained. No state in
the union has made more rapid progress
than Kansas since her prohibitory law
was enacted. And we have as good anti
prohibition authority as the Hon. John
A. McShane for saying that Pioux City,
Iowa, is "booming along at a wonderful
rate." It is a conceded fact that the
prohibitory law is fairly well enforced in
that city. The facts ai , that instead of
grog shops adding to lae material pros
perity of any community, they have an
opposite effect. A city is not prosperous
on account of saloons but in spite of
After more than twenty years of statu
tory prohibition Maine in 1884 by a vote
of more than two to one adopted consti
tutional prohibition. As in Nebraska,
Kansas and Iowa, the population of
Maine is largely in the rural districts.
The vote in Massachusetts Monday, is
no indication as to what the voto will be
in Nebraska in Nov. 1800.
The democratic papers are condemning
Assistant Secretary Bussey for his liberal
rulings in favor of pension claimants;
but the patriotic people of the country
will sustain him. It is a decided relief
to know that we again have men in
charge of pension matters who do not
hold that every soldier who submits a
claim should be regarded as a probable
An Englishman has invented a bonnet
which can be taken off in the theatre,
folded up and used as a fan. So it is
rumored. If the report can be substanti

himself to be a friend of mankind in the
first degree.
Since March 4 about 500 changes have
been made in the Railway Mail Service;
and the effect will soon be seen in the
restoration of that important branch of
the postal machinery to the cenditition
of perfect efficiency in which it was left
by the last republican administration.

Do you wonder then that, coming back to
you after an experience of nearly thirty
years in ouo of these overcrowded profes
sions, 1 sound a note of warning against
choosing a profession hastily, und caution
you that, unless you bavo unusual endow
ments and extraordinary luck, no matter
which profession you may select, you will
proljably find yourselves, in five years, much
in tbe condition of the traveler who, coming
to certain cross roods wbero the finger boards
indicated four diiferent roads as leading to
the place which be desired to reach, asked a
countryman which was tbe best road, and
was told: "Wall, stranger, ye kin jist take
yer chice, but whichever on 'em ye take, bo
fore ye'vo gone more'n a mile, ye'll be derned
sure to wisbt ye'd taken some other!"
If you could know how many, how very
many, men in my profession are not earning,

them do uot, and probably never will, earn
as good a living as a flnst class carpenter,
bricklayer or machinist could easily earn; if
you could know, as you will know in ten or
twenty years from now, how many college
educated men have suffered, and will cou

Do not misunderstand mo. 1 have no

you against the stumbling block of over

as too many students did in my day, that a

Remember that a very largo proportion of
the most successful and illustrious men whom

ority never commanded so high a pre;i:iui::
as it does today The man wbo is intelk-ciu
ally but half an inch taller than his fellow
men is bound to forge to the front. There
never was an age in the history of the w:
when there was so good a market for brains,
but they must be the genuine article. The
world is not easily humbugged, and the man
who attempts to hoodwink it is bound to
"get left." It wants scholars, not sciolists,
poets, not poetasters; statesmen, not poii
cians; jp yen tors, opt imitators. It demands,
above all things, originality, ft will bo sat

degree of excellence, in scholarship, in me
chanical pursuits, in business, in literature
and in each of tbe several professions.
But there never was a time when the world
was willing to pay such high prices as it will
pay today for what it needs. 1 know law
yers, doctors and editors with incomes of
from S25.000 50,000 a year; but they are
few, and they iVe "woith every doJJar that
they get. Popular preachers command sal
aries that make on average lawyer's mouth
water. The author who can write books that
will compel people to read them can get
prices the tenth part of which would have

"Paradise Lost." Rider Haggard can today
get lO.UOu'for & suagl sttfry pf 8Qq pages, and
our leading magazines have paid popular
authors as high as $100 a page. Scores of
college graduates apply in vain every month
for situations on newspapers, but let one of
them write but ten, lines or even a bead line
that indicates real talent for newspaper work,
and he can immediately get a good situation
ar;d can soon command a salary of $5,000.
The man wbo pa-pc Wacamaker's advertise

But whatever Inivof utllcctual work you

which one is specially fitted; of doing only
that which oue can do best, and doing it tc
tbe utmost measure of one's ability. There
is no suon thing as genius which can accom

of it is a fairy tale, which self conceit tells
as an apology for indolence and incapacity.

Thn That Are Sought After Are Not the
iiii-. hut Women of .': or Out.
'The buds." sjiys U:ist::n, "are :i nine
days wonder, iind an; much talked of for
that ypaco of time, but it is tbe women
past o0 who are the most interesting in
Arneriea. They seem to have the K'ft of
eternnl youth, ami at 00 are more agree
able looking than tho women of any
other country."
Rustan's observation will surprise jeo
ple whose sole knowledge of fashionable
society i.-t derived from tho chroniclers of
a quarter or half century back; but to
tho onlooker, as well as to tho foreign
traveler, it is patent that there is a great
physical change in the American society
woman as exemplified in New York.
They hold their age in an astonishing
and unprecedented manner and seem
not to attain the zenith of their beauty
till a point beyond which they are hope
lessly passe. Men say that tho women
of today are at :3 no older than they
formerly were at 2o. and that there is a
corresponding dilTcrence all along the
line: that consequently they dress young
er without incongruity, and that beyond
and alove all this they have learned to
grow old with grace, which means that
they have at least recognized that it is
futile to sham youth and have set them
selves to develop wit, style and other at
tributes which are permanent and may
grow instead of lessen with time.
In the time of our mothers and grand
mothers, if the society chroniclers are a
guide, a woman was considered old after
25. If she did not marry in her first
season she was called a "relic" and made
to feel in the way. And there was some
reason for the raillery.
Between then and now two things have
happened. Health has become the fash
ion and is sought for passionately and
successfully. Clear skins, natural color,
firm muscles, bright eyes and elastic
steps are now the order of the day, and
a woman who was once as transient as
snow has become as permanent a.s her
husband. That pretension to youthful
ness is not now the common weakness is
evidenced 13 tho fact that the humorous
papers, which once found this the most
fruitful subject for jests, have turned
their attention to other foibles. With
this change men's taste regarding women
seems to have altered somewhat.
Where once he admired the beauty of
youth alone and was satisfied with dumb
response to emotion, lie now demands a
great deal more. The woman of today
must make herself agreeable, not pas-'
sively, but actively; she must be brilliant
and witty, possessed of tact and able to
entertain; must have tbe art of dresf ing,
the knowledge of men, the art of flatter
ing, must be, in short, a woman of the
world with the liberal education which
that implies. The day of the doll has
passed away; the debutante is in no
flurry to get married, and the yearling
pasture is not the wife market; it was.
It might le supposed that women who
keep up a continuous round of dinners,
,in I,, , ,

and weary and old before their time, but
in reality they arc in the most splendid
physical condition, l hey. are is
true, till the small hours of the morning,
drinking champagne, dancing, convers
ing and flirting, but this is their sole oc
cupation, and t not begin before 4
o'ehiek in the afternoon. The remainder
of their time is spent in, tho pursuit of
health. After a noon breakfast they
drive, twice a week, to tho Turkish
baths, and are steamed, pounded, plung
ed and showered, shampooed and mani
cured, and turned out as if new made
from the hand of God. No other crea
ture, unless it be thoroughbred racers,
have such care given to their Iwdies as
these women whose business ia society.
Whatever science and art have discov
ered and invented, or nature allotted, to
give health and beauty, is commanded
by them, until it is now beginning to be
said, curiously, that the women are out
lasting the men.
The society woman depends greatly on
luxurious bathing to renew her strength.
The Turkish bath must be taken outside
the home, but the bathrooms in soma of

Be Prompt iu Appointments.
The Manufacturer's Gazette thinks
there is nothing more damaging to a
business than to be found wanting in the
matter of promptness in filling prders.
A great rnfny firms will promise to have
an order at a certain time, when they
are confident in their own minds that it
will be almost an utter impossibility to
do so. This is done to secure the orders,
but cannot fail of a damaging effect in
the future. It is. just as important that
an order be filled at the time agreed as
hat any other engagement or appoint
ment be kept. The man who arranges
for a meeting with another at a certain
time is expected to be on time. In these
days of great enterprise and push, every
business man has his time fully taker
and promptness in keeping an appoint
ment is an important matter to him
Just so it is in filling orders. Prompt
ness is as much to tho credit of a concern
as is the quality of the work or the mate
rial used.
The Prescription.
There was, some time ago, a doctor
whose morning levees were crowded be
yond description. It was his pride and
boast that be could feel Ids patient's
pulse, look at his tongue, probe at him
with bis stethoscope, write his prescrip
tion, pocket bis fee, in a space pf tiaiq
varying from two to five minutes. One
day an army man was khown into the
consulting room, and underwent wliat
may be called the instantaneous process.
When it was completed the patient shook
hands heartily with the doctor and said:
"I am esjecially glad to meet you. as I
liave often heard my father. Col. Fores
