The bill to allow the manufacture of liquor has passed the Iowa legisla ture. The unfortunate Cubans, notjhav lng suffered all the ills which flesh is heir to, are now J.n the midst of a small pox epidemic. Bryan was anxious to emphasize the silver issue by wiring congratula tions to Carter Harrison. What's the matter with congratulations to Howell. The industrious agriculturalist who planted his potatoes on Good Friday is liable to have his work to do over if this cool weather does not cease pretty soon. Illinois 6hows the right spirit by securing a state appropriation of $35, 000 for the Omaha exposition. If other western states should do halt as much the exposition would be an assured success from the start. Our populist governor and his thrifty private secretary with their families have gone to Port Arthur, Tex., in a private car of the Pitts burgh & Gulf railway. The idea of a pop riding in a private car is simply awful. In view of the teapot tempest rai33d by an Ohio congressman's evident de termination to appoint a negro to Annapolis, this would seem to be as good a time as any to find out whether the naval school is really a national or only a sectional institution. Ex. The - newspapers of Washington county have agreed to withdraw their support from the state fair this fall if the Bulletin method of advertising is used. If the promoters of this big show do the right thing they will use the columns of the state papers and discontinue the State Fair Bulletin. The people are honest as a rule, and the stealing of legislative eeats which Omaha voters rebuked yesterday should not be forgotten. It was an expensive lesson to the fusionists, who in the legislature followed the rule that might makes right. Howell got his just deserts whether Moores was an ideal citizen or not. The latest from Europe is not quite so bellicose as yesterday's telegrams. the Powers having again shown a dis position to interfere in the interest of peace. War may yet be averted if the other nations insist that Greece and Turkey shall not fight, as they would be handled like two children if it should be agreed that hostilities must stop. The war between Greece and Tur- key'continues, though neither country has openly declared hostilities. It is now certain that the two countries will soon be in deadly conflict unless the foreign powers intercede. The Turks have better equipped infantry and more men subject to military duty, so that the Greeks are at a dis advantage. TnE "blanket ballot" will be put In force in Nebraska next year. This is a simple form. When the voter de sires to cast a straight ballot, all that is necessary is to mark a cross in the circle at the head of his ticket each party having a separate column on the sheet. This form will enable the ignorant voter to vote, as quickly and intelligently as r.nybody. Peru has stopped coining silver, Columbia lb trying to accumulate gold enough to change its standard, San Salvador is moving In the same direction, Uruguay has forbidden the circulation of foreign silver, and Chili now measures values in gold. The silver standard has become too costly a luxury to be endured by these coun tries. Globe-Democrat. The Greco-Turkan war oloud grows more threatening aud an open de claration of war is certainly near at hand. The Greeks are crossing the frontier and will make Turkey the battle ground unless a host of the Sultan's subjects should put them to Immediate flight, which is not prob able. If the Greeks are only strong enough to-annihilate their adversaries the Christian nations of the earth can afford to rejoice. The town of Bradford, Eng., cleared $1,000,000 worth of gooas on April 2 for the United States. Our people prate of hard times, but when they can pay out millions per day for foreign made goods, while our home factories are idle, a man of ordinary intelligence can see there is but one remedy, and that a protective tariff. If Plattsmouth peoples nought three fourths of their goods in Omaha this town would be on the decline very quickly, and bo it is with the nation if we continue sending all our money abroad. Dr. Hunter has finally withdrawn from the KentuCKy senatorship race and the republicans of that slate, if affected with a epasm of horse sense, may yet elect a republican senator, to succeed Blackburu. With a clear majority in the legislature months have been frittered away in a dead lock which happily Has at last ended. CUBA is about to try the experi ment of manufacturing 50 cents worth of silver into a coin called a dollar. The Cuban exnarimeat. however, will r , result just as have all the others. The only way to keep such a silver coinage up to par with gold at its face value is to limit the amount turned out of the mints to less than the de mand. Unlimited silver coinage would soon reduce the new Cuban sil ver dollar to a level with the Mexi can silver dollar. Ex. WITH nearly 40,000 farms covered by flood, some $63,000,000 properly de stroyed or damaged, and nearly 400,- 000 people sadly affected, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee and Missouri are in a bad plight truly. The region now under water produced last year 370,000 bales of cotton, 11,- 000,000 bushels of corn, $4,000,000 of wheat, oat?, potatoes and hay. It is demoralizing to the people, and j'et in previous floods where hope was almost all gone, heavy crops have been raised bv early summer plant ing. Ex. The populists are having a row in their ranks just cow over the holding of a national convention in Memphis July 4. Chairman Butler says such action means open rebellion fiom the organization, while the middle-of-the- road pops who decline to act as tail to the democratic kite say rebellion from fusion is just what they want, and Mr. Butler's threats, therefore, drives no consternation into their ranks. The new convention will soon be recog nized as the entering wedge which will split the fusion phalanx wide open, and ail the smooth demaguery of Bryan leaders can not prevent the fall of their double organization, which is plainly tottering now when less than a year has elapsed since its great cam paign was made for the presidency. A LEAK in the bucket of Kansas rumor drizzles upon us the informa tion that Mrs. Lease is going to abandon that state and take up her residence in New York, says the New York Tribune. There is plenty of room for her here, and it would not only be ungallant but untrue to say that it was preferable to her comnanv. But she must not ex oect to be taken very seriously. The talking woman is abundant here; another more or less is of little consequence. She comes and goes, breathing ber flute-like note when and how 6he listeth, a stiff- necked and perverse generation Dot heeding her. In order to take the town captive and divide attention with current occasions of interest. Mrs. Lease would have to put on an amount of oratorical style which she has so far given no sign of ability to carry off. The war on the frontier between TheBsaly and Macedonia is progress ing without any definite buccesses for either Bide, though the Greeks seem to have slightly the advantage, says the State Journal. They are contend ing against a superior force, 150,000 Turks being arrayed against about 80,000 Greeks. This will put the Greeks on the defensive. But the greatest interest is felt in the maneuvers of the Greek fleet. By sea, the Greeks have a great advan tage over the Turks in up-to-date ships, and it is on her navy, that Greece must principallr depend to counteract the advantage the Turks have on land. The Turkish army numbers all told about 300,000, while the Greeks have a land force of about 100,000. This force will, however, be considerably increased by volunteers. Every Greek capable of bearing arms is expected to join the army. Now that open war exists the powers will have to abandon their plan of blockad ing either Greek or Crete ports and the Greek navy will be left to try conclusions with the war vessels of the Turks and may make it orettv warm among the islands that are held by their enemies commanding the Dardanelles.

We bad believed all along that the air ship was a fake till last night, when Posey Messersmith act ually saw it and talked with the air navigator himself. Posey eives a minute description of tUe ship, which appeared to be ebout half a mile high, but he confesses he could not recognize the man in the darkness who did the talking. He says he was down in the ravine below his house and could have seen the ship more dfstinctly, only he had to look up the hillside through the ttees. Dad Karnes scouts the idea, and says it was a boy in the tree giving Posey guff, and that drinking too much Mis souri river water in the spring of the year is liable to make a fellow see a whole flock of air ships on the slightest provocation, and the boys in the yard seem to share Dad's view of the question. . A new- kind or conndence rottn worked Olathe, Kan., recently. He sold common house mice to women for $5 apiece under the fascinating namo of Chinese sacred rats. The mice were beautifully painted and a guarantee went with each mouse that it would keep contagious diseases from the premises. Ex. The corn held on the west side of the B. & M. fill across the river is said to be fairly alive with fish and many are being caught by hand When the river overflowed the iish fallowed the water in and now they cannot get out again. Neoraska City News. In the north and east the recer t cold wave has been very destructive oi fruit prospects. Heie in Nebraska no harm so far has been done, and. unless heavy frosts occur later on, eastern Nebraska will enjoy an enormous fruit crop, as the trees are in fine con dition from last fall's rains. The young man who waits at the hotel corner on his way to the shops at noon in order to accompany oue of the city's nicest lady teachers over the Sixth street hill, came near losing his place today, lie wailed till it was almost 1, o'clock, aud might have been waiting yet. ouly some one suggested that this was Arbor day and the public schools wo'o not in session. The news comes constantly from the Mississippi Hood that the river is higher than ever before. And the floods will go on being higher than ever, witbout increase oi the quantity of water; but because the levee and jetty system combine! prevent the rapid discharge of the river into the gulf. This theory seems to be clearlv proven by recent experiences. Ex. What s the matter with Omaha? It would seem mat silver popocracy was falling- behind in Neoraska. "Dad" Karnes is a great lover of 'greens," and with the chirp of the hrst robbin he generally begins to look forword to a mess of succulent vegetation. Knowing his weakness, Posey Messersmith sent him a batch of milk-weed, willow tops and young alfalfa yesterday which 'Dad" is ssid to have cooked up and eaten, with re- suits that are not altogether certain. He had a flighty, far-away cloverdale Iook out of his eyes Ihis morning, and Posey says if he recovers he will feed him on baled bay this winter. John Hay, the American Ambas sador to England has arrived at South Hampton and will soon be at bis post of duty. Gretna has a new creamery which uses the milk of 150 cows and double that number will be utilized very soon. The creameries in this county have not been very successful except as debt accumulators. A swell young man who has a store on Main street and whose heart is in the right place, wanted to do the proper thing Easter Sunday, so he hired a livery rig to take his girl out for a drive. He started with light heart, in blissful anticipation, when suddenly one of the horses balked and then laid down. The voung man pried him up, and by dint of coaxing finally got out on the open highway. Ihe world wore a pea-creen suit. which his imagination suffused with pink until the horse laid down again and the same process had to be gone througn with. At last, after several experiences each worse than putting up forty stoves the young- man got back home, with all the poetry driven out of him and wearing an air of meek ness and humility which his friends will not soon forget. Americans are tbe most inventive people on earth. To them have been issued nearly 600,000 patents, or more than one-third of all the patents issued ia the world.

A daring robbery took place at noon to day at Castle Gate, Utah, on the line of the Rio Grande Western railway. E. L. Carpenter, of this city, paymas ter of tbo Pleasant Valley Coal com pany, went down this morning with $7,800 to p ly off the men at the mine. When he reached Castle Gate and was going over to the company s office, he was met by two mounted men, heavily armed, who held him up, re lieved him of bis cash, and then rode I in the direction of Helper. The men cut the telegraph wires to pre vent a rail of assistance. Within ha'f an hour a pos3e made up from Price and Helper, started in pursuit of the robber s. The coal company has of fered a reward of $1,000 for the capture of the robbers and $1,000 for the re- t.irn of the mnev. Stands at the Head. Aug J. Bogel, the lending druggist ni siireveDort.

That was what brought Mrs. Daweon to the police station yes terday with the lad for the purpose of sending him to the reform school if necessary to correct his habits. The boy has already been an inmate of j the institution, but was discharged because of good behavior, says the Bee. Mrs. Dawson informed Assistant Couuty Attorney Jeffries that the lad did not steal and did not exhibit wicked traits., but would persist in dis obeying ner. lie was pi oue, also, in mischievous tricks.

They Axe the Record of Thoughts Forced on the Faoe. Wrinkles are as natural to old age as is a full, smooth face to childhood. - They are dm mainly to a certain shrinkage of the muscles a shrinkage which charac terizes more or less the entire system in the later period of life. It is in conse quence of this general shrinkage that in advanced life the height is somewhat lowered; that the substance of the jaws contracts, thus often giving rise, by pressure on the nerves that pass through the bony canals, to severe and difficult neuralgia, and that the brain substance becomes reduced in bulk, water filling the vacant space. Were it not for the fixed habits and accumulated resources of a lifetime an old man's brain would not be equal to the work which he still performs easily. There is, of course, much difference between old people in this respect, which is due largely to temperament, habits of thought and of feeling and modes of life. The papers lately told of a man over 100 years old whose face was wholly without wrinkles. This was a very ex ceptional case, for the great body of us, if we attain length of days, must take them with the addition of physical de cay. Even the proud belle must make up her mind for wrinkles, but if, as she grows older, she grows in good sense, intelligence and kindly sympathies, her beauty of character will have an attrac tion far beyond beauty of face. While wrinkles result from the natural work ing of the -system, they may also be caused by a perverted condition of the system, as are pimples, blotches and boils. Now; the human face, nnlike that of brutes, was meant to be the "mirror of the mind," the visible expression of ev ery passion, emotion and inmost feeling. Herein is its chief beauty; hence its numerous muscles and nerves, whereby it is so wonderfully adjusted to this end. But muscles in constant or frequent ex ercise increase in volume, strength and readiness of action; hence habits of thought and feeling become stamped on the face, and we read so easily the character of the proud, the vain, the de ceitful and the sensual man or of the kind, the calm, the energetic, the frank, the candid and the honest man. But there is nothing like care and worri- ment to plow furrows in the forehead, and these are badly marring the faces of some men and women. We pass in the streets persons of 35 whose foreheads are more wrinkled than the brow should be at 70. Some of these may have more care than others, but they unnecessarily yield to the tendency to express them in the face. Leeds Mercury. Lack la Old Shoes. m nu: t i - m n , t. a - which have been worn by an upright magistrate, and the custom of wishing a friend a "happy foot" is still observed all through Europe. The casual putting on the left shoe on the right foot, put ting it on uneven or crosswise, bursting the latch or tie, lacing it wrong and losing a button are all bad signs. A Yorkshire man will spit in his right shoe before putting it on, when going out on important business, to bring luck, and many an English girl has been known to hang her boots outside of the window on St. Valentine's night for love lack. Professor Black tells ns of a singular superstition existing in England, which insists that if the youngest daughter of a xawiif man icb uist uer Biatf ra must I dance at the wedding without shoes, so as to insure nusoanas lor tnemselves. I old shoe throwing is done for manv purposes. In Ireland the election of a person to almost any office is concluded by throwing an old shoe over his head. The gypsies sty: Hnrle after an old shoe, I'll be merry what here I do. In the isle of Man an old shoe is al ways thrown after the bride, as well as the groom, when leaving their homes, and in the south the oldest person on the plantation, white or black, always throws a shoe after any one starting on a long journey. It is said that Mme. Patti and other women of hieh standing on the stage preserve most carefully the hnntg thuv wr,y - io.ni- rKiok they consider lucky to wear on the first I nights of engagements forever after.
