'I The Bee began Saturday a feature
v nqf heretofore practiced oy news
i f papers in the west.
About noon Saturday a general
invitation was extended to the ed
itorial staff, printers and stereo
typers to meet at 4 o'clock in the
' spacious composing room of The
Bee. This force, numbering nearly
100 men, gathered there, and a little
later Mr. Rosewater, editor in chief,
entered and without ceremony ex
plained the purpose of the gather
ing as follows:
"It lias been my desire for a iiuni
ber of years to be in a position to
v recognize and suitably reward the
services of those associated with me
in the production of the Omaha
Bee. For the tirst time since its
' first publication, twenty-one years
ago, I find myself in that position.
I have decided today to make
uniform distribution of rewards in
money based on the time of service
' for every employe in the establish
ment. Those of course, who have
been here less than six months are
not considered permanently at
tached, but begitiningwith the mes
sengers and going up the scale to
heads of departments those who
thave been here more than six
; months and less than a year will re
'.ceive $2; those who have served us
more than one year and less than
two years, fto; two years and i.p to
three, $9; three years and up to four
$14; four years and up to five, $'-0
five years and over, $'2.'). There will
be no distinction made between the
, highest and lowest in the service of
The Bee except that apprentices
will be given half rate.
" I trust that what we are doing
will be received with appreciation
We are trying to recognize merit
and fidelity on the part of those
connected with The Bee, and I hope
as the years go by that we will be
able to make increased annual
v- awards for merit and to make it do
sirable for any person who works
for wages to be connected with the
Omaha Bee and remain in its ser
vice conscious of the fuct that he
will profit by continuing with us."
At the Hotel Riley.
A number of the citizens of
Flattsmouth took dinner at the

the dance had taken every precau

Although those in attendance last
night were a good deal older than
those who usually attend dancing
parties, their youthful vigor re
turned when they assembled upon
the waxed floor and the soul in
spiring music started, anu tney
glided around the room with
gracefulness that was envied by
many of the younger ones present.
The committee had exercised
good judgment in sending out in
vitations, and a more sociable
crowd never assembled in Rock
wood hall. It was composed of the
leading citizens of the city.
Promptly at 9 o'clock the grand
march was started, headed by Hen

and from that time until 1 o'clock
the dancing was kept up, except for
an intermission for supper, which
was served in the G. A. R. hall by

The Origin of "Brother Jonathan."
It seems strange to apeak of the United
States as "Brother Jonathan," and the
wonder is bow it ever began; but on in
quiring into the matter we find that the
custom arose from an ordinary remark
made by General Washington at the lie
ginning of the Revolutionary war. On
aolDg to Massachusetts to organize me
army be found it scant of ammunition
and all means of defense, and no one could
suggest any way out of the diillculty.
Something must be done at once for the
nublio safety, and General Washington,
who had great confidence In the judgment
of Governor Jonathan Trumbull, of Con
necticut, said iu his dilemma, "We must
consult Brother Jonathan ou the subject."
"Brother Jonathan" was equal to the oc
casion, and supplied many of the lacking
necessities, and afterward during the war
it became the custom in any emergency to
say, "We must consult Brother Jonathan."
In time the name became applied to the
whole country, aud it ia pleasant to know
that the great Washington himself was the
originator of It. Harper's Young I'eopie.
Daniel Uoyer's Louelj Life.
The finding of the body of Daniel Boyer
in Exeter township has brought to light
the story of this aged hermit. Boyer was
seventy-seven years old, and for forty-eight
years had lived alone In a little stone but,
eight feet wide and ten feet long, stir
rouuded by a swamp. His sole companion
was a dog. He did bis own cooking. The
Drincinal part of his food consisted of wild
game that he shot In the woods. For half
a century his only occupation was the
making of ax handles, whioh he carried to
town on his back and sold. Ho rarely wore
shoes, even iu the coldest weather, and
when his body was found in the path lead'
ing to the spring from which he got water
the feet were entirely naked. He slept on
a plank bud. His death was caused by
heart disease. A brother of the dead man
was also exceedingly eccentric. Neither of
them uiurried.'The brother always climbed
intoatree every daynud sut there for hours
and played his vioiiu and sang songs.

Views of the Court
J udge Chapman handed down his
decision in the injunction case
wherein the merchants of this city
were enjoined from going to Coun
cil Hluffs tojgive testimony in the
garnishee cases: Following is his
This case is submitted upon u
motion to vacate the temnorarv
injunction heretofore allowed, and
in some respects presents an au
atnolous state of affairs.
Substantially the plaintiffs allege
they are married men, the heads of
families residing in Nebraska, en
titled to sixty days wnires exempt
from attachment and garnishee-
ment process: that defendants on
the first day of August ISiKJ claim
ed to hold accounts against plain
tiffs and for the purpose of avoid
ing the exemption laws of Ne
braska, assigned and sold said ac
counts to one l'Vnzer, a residents of
Souix City Iowa; that said l'ra.er
in pursuance of such arrnntre
ment has proceeded to instigate
suits against defendants iu Coun
cil Ultilfs, Iowa, and has caused the
exempt wages of plaintiffs due
plaintiffs from the C. II. A J. K. K',
company to be attached in the
state of Iowa. The defendants eacli
one jointly with his co-defendant
answered this petition denying
specifically the allegations thereof,
and also allege said petition does
not slate facts sufficient to consti
tute a course of action; affidavits are
presented by both plaintiffs and de
fendants upon this hearing, plain
tiffs alleging the transfer of ac
counts to the non-resident Fra.er
was done by defendant with the
fraudulent intent to avoid the ex
emption laws and policy of this
state, and the defendants denying
said allegations nnd stating that
they have no interest in the claim
prosecuted by said Francrof Coun
cil Bluffs, Iowa
It is unfortunate that this matter
could not be tried noon its merits
and all the facts and circumstances
surrounding the transfer tf the ac
counts in question as shown in this
court. That element of the case is
not touched upon by the affidavits
ofjplaiutiffs and defendants and it
is impossible to know from this
showing what the real facts are. A
state cannot well afford to permit
its laws and policy to be annulled
by its own citizens and as a general
proposition its courts have the pow
er to interfere when such is shown
to be thejobject of its citizens or
those within its jurisdiction. The
fact remains in this case and the
court cannot avoid taking into con
siderntion that the non-resident
Frazer, has entered into the
business of purchasing accounts
against citizens of this state and
collecting the same in the state of
Iowa, where our exemption laws
have no force, also that large num.
bers ot accounts have been trans
ferred by tlu defendents herein to
said Frazer nnd wageB which are
exempt have been attached in
Iowa in consequence thereof. This
being the case, and the defendants
having disclaimed any intent iu
such accounts no injustce can be
done them by permitting the in
junction in this case to remain in
force unitl the full fact in the case
I are disclosed by the trial of the
action on its merits.
I think there is no question of the
power of a court of equity to inter
fere in a case like the one at bar if
the facts are shown to exist as all
leged in plaintiff's petition. The
act of the legislature is not called
in question in this proceeding, al
though it has been questioned by
counsel on the argument. IfBtich

the court of last resort in Nebraska
and the truth of the matter dis- j
closed; i( it is a valid act, and we

Taking this view of the casO 1

In Indianapolis I entered one of tb
rooms containing the yonnget children
t the time ot the owning exercise.
The scene 1 encountered was a glimpM
of fairyland. 1 was in a room full ol
bright and happy children, whose eyei
were directed toward the teacher, not
Waune they wne forbidden to look ia
any other direction, but because U
them the most attractive object tn the
room was their teacher.' She under
stood them, sympathized and loved
them, and did all in her power to in
terest them and make them happy.
The room itself was charming. Thi
window sills were filled with llvitg
plants, and living plants were scattered
here ami there throughout the room.
The teacher's desk was literally strews
with flowers, and upon each of the chil
dren's desks flowers had leen placed W
welcome the httlo ones to school.
The book used dtuinit the reading les
son was the book of nature the plant
they had just been studying. The nceus
presented by tlio happy little children,
each with a flower iu his hand, surround
ing the teacher, who was Mini inn upon
them, was truly beautiful.
For reading matter the. children wer
called upon for sentences expressing
thoughts concerning their tlowers. Th
sentences were written npon the board
by the teacher, nnd when a number of
them had beeti written the pupils begun
to read tlieui. The children were inter

part in tho lesson from the beginning to
the end. They were all observing, all

Now that electricity is being more and
more widely used it i no longer safe for
a woman to carry ber watch in the
place where it bus always been most se
cure in her corsets. A New York
womau a few days ago was going to pay
a visit of curiosity to an electric light
plant. She was warned that her watch
might be charged witii electricity, anu
so she did not lake it with her.
The precaution was riseless. The net
day the movements of the watch were
most eccentric. Now it was fust, now
slow, but never riht. She asked net
husband, who was un electrician, what
conld be the matter with it, and lie soon
found thut her corset steels had been
charged with electricity during her visit
to the plant, and that next day, when
she placed her watch in its usual renting
