matter of interest to woman, and wo

izing that it treats upon a matter of
vital importance to theic sex: "The

taken with a very severe cold that
caused him to uu in a mot miserable
condition. It was undoubtedly a bad
case of la grippe, and recognizing it
as dangerous he took immediate
steps to bring about a speedy cure.
From the advertisement of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy and the mauy
good recommendations included
therein, we concluded to make a first
trial of the medicine. To say that it
was satisfactory in its results is put
it very mildly, indeed. It acted like
magic and the result was a speedy and
permanent cure. We have no hesi
tancy in recommending this excellent
Cough Remedy to anyone afflicted
with a cough or cold in any form. The

Tho old mariage do convenanco, which
canned so ninth sorrow and consequent
evil in former days, when a girl was
taken out of a convent to bo shown tho
man to whom she was about to bo mar
ried, is now a thing of the past. It must
bo acknowledged, however, that mar
riages are still made tip, often too has
tily and superficially, by nicely Lalauced
family arrangements and by the inter
vention of friends. Nevertheless, attrac
tion and repulsion are now taken into
consideration, and a girl is no longer
forced to marry a man whom she posi
tively dislikes. I could qnoto instances
in the very highent (historical) aristoc
racy where, at tho last moment, after
the trousseau had been sent in (marked,
according to custom, with the united
initial letters of the two names elabo
rately embroidered) and all the social
preparations made, the marriage was
broken off because the bride had de
clared that she could not "get accus
tomed" to the bridegroom nor endure
the idea of seeing his face in her home
during her natural life. Iu one of these
instances the family lamentations over
the initials of the trousseau were really
amusing. Fortunately a substitute was
soon found whose name, like that of the
rejected suitor, began with an X, and
the complications were thus happily
The great object of the French girl's
lifo is marriage. From the time of her
birth her parents have prepared for this
event, and in many cases they have con
siderably straitened their income and
curtailed their enjoyments to make up
her dot. Every girl in every class is ex
pected to have something. Those who
have nothing aro exceptions and consti
tute a minority of old maids. Tho girls
who from choice do not marry generally
become nuns, usually much against the
wishes of their parents. The old tales
of young women being forced into con
vents to improve the position of their
brothers are forgotten in these days,
when, while no child can on any pre
tense be deprived of a share in the fa
ther 8 inheritance, monastic vows are
not recognized Ly law. Nuns and spin
sters are exceptions; marriage is the
When a girl is of ago to be introduced
into society, her friends and relatives
immediately look out for a suitable hus
band, whom it is considered highly de
sirable to obtain before she has reached
the age of 21, that she may not be pro
claimed fille majeure when the banns
are published. The principal considera
tions are equality of birth, of position,
of fortune, and in the last particular
the scale is usually expected to wTeigh
rather more on the side of the young
lady, especially if the young man, in
addition to sufficient present advantages,
can bring forward a number of relatives
not likely to live long. This is called
having hopes (desesperances beaucoup
d'esperances). If the young lady with a
substantial dot can also show a satisfac
tory background of invalid uncles and
aunts, then everything is as it should
be, and the young people are brought
together with every prospect of a favor
able conclusion. It happens, however,
too often that they do not know each
other sufficiently, and that they are per
suaded to believe that the mutual liking
is greater than it really is. Sometime'
this sort of undefined attraction ripens
into a deep and devoted love. When
this occurs, there are no more affection
ate wives or more faithful widows than
More frequently, especially in the
higher classes, a sort of cool friendliness
springs up, where they see but little of
each other, and freedom is enjoyed ou
both sides. The authority of the hus
band is less felt than in an English
household. There is a sort of under
standing that in her home the wife is
queen and settles matters as she pleases.
But their best and warmest feelings
are awakened by all that concerns their
children. French parents are perhaps
the most affectionate in the world. The
interests and welfare of their children
are their first consideration, and won
derful sacri'ices of their own pleasure
and enjoyment are made in favor of
their sons and daughters by the most
worldly men and women. These are
taken as a matter of course; no one
thinks of doing otherwise or of seeing
any merit in such acts.
The mothers especially are unequal
ed. Nothing will stand in the way of a
Frenchwoman where her children's in
terests are concerned. This love is so
engrossing that it swallows up every
other. They are more mothers than
wives, and if called upon to choose be
tween allowing a husband to go alone
on a foreign mission or leaving their
children they would not hesitate. "Mes

QUEEN POLARIS DULY CROWNED.
Ceremony Proceeds In ilte of IMMiigrrr-
"Piattsrnouth is well represented at
tho ice carnival in Omaha, a largo
crowd having gone up on tho fast mail
yesterday afternoon and a still larger
ono on the early train this morning.
The following account of tho evont
taken from tho Roe will bo of interest:
"Tho court of Queen Polaris bid de
fiance to the weather god lust night.
In the face of tho disagreeable condi
tions the comely Victoria was duly
crowned and seated upon her regal
throne in the presence of her Mutter
ing maids of hor.oi- and a goodly num
ber of her subject. And with ibis
royal ceremony carnival week was
f lirly commonced.
"Hardly more unreasonable if not
unseasonable weather could be im
agined tn iu marked tho opening of
the ice carnival. The high tempera
ture of the entire month has made it
impossible to erect the ice palace
which was contemplated and it ha9
been moreover doing its bobt to spoil
the ico in the exposition lagoon des
pito the efforts of tho carnival man
agement to preserve it. These ob
stacles, together with the nasty slush
underfooting of the streets which dis
inclines worthy citizens, even though
they are faithful subjects, to go with
out doors, were not auspicious of suc
cess of tho royal ceremony.
"But despite tho disagreeable
weather, there was a very good at
tendance at tho crowning of the queen.
In fact, tho attendance was feared
that their weight would cause the ice
of the lagoon to collapse. On this
account, tno regat ceremony was
shoi tened considerably, but the royal
emblem was duly placed upon tho
brow of the queen.
"The ceremony was performed at
the western end of ihe lagoon in the
bright glare of electric, calcium and
colored lights. The queen was seated
upon a gaily adorned throne with
runners. She was attired in a bril
liant robe, glittering like gold and
trimmed with ermine. Miss Stephen
son formed a very charm iner picture
on her royal seat. About her fitted,

crowning her was being preformed.
"After the ceremony, the subjects
of the queen disported themselves for
several hours on the ice and the to

took station on the ice and rendered
an excellent program of music. Fur

To the Editor of The News:
A few days ago the Journal and
Evening News published in their es
teemed columrs the mistake that Dr
Potter cured my weak limb, or ankle,
and that he, the doctor, broke my
crutches, as I was able to walk with
out them. Tho story is a fake. I have
tried Dr. Potter's remedy and treat
ment for one whole week, and have de
rived no more benefit therefrom than
if I had used so much snow water. If
the doctor oiled the presses when
those puffs for advertising his medi
cine were printed, or if the printers'
devils wrote their ai licles during an
eclipse of the moon, I am sure they
could not be further from the truih.
The fact still remains, however,. that
I am just as weak as ever in my foot.

KISSED HER ON A BET.
the Was a Salvation Ijtsle lie. Her Hus
band Traveling Men Didn't Know That.
A clever trick was worked Ly Walter
Redmond and his wife at Union station
Ly which several traveling men were
duped out of their money. At the end
of a long seat in tho waiting room was
a pretty and modest looking young wo
man attired in a Salvation Army uni
form. She was very intent upon a pa
per which she was reading and paid lit
tlo attention to tho crowd of traveling
men standing near her.
Asido from the crowd was a well
dressed young man, who was walking
Lack and forth Ly tho newsstand puff
iug away at a fragrant cigar. Finally a
member of tho crowd of traveling men
remarked upon tho beauty of tho littlo
Salvation Army worker. All eyes wero
fixed on the little woman, and she ro
ceived many compliments. Tho prosper
ous looking young man who had been
walking near the group of drummers
drew near to tho crowd. Ho, too, was
struck with tho appearance of tho wo-
"I'll give any ono of you fellows $15
If you kiss that girl," said ho.
Those in tho crowd took the dare
Ono spoke up, however, and said to the
stranger who had offered tho money,
"I'll bet you 20 that you can't kiss
The stranger hesitated for several seo-
onds and then said :
"I'll just tako that Let."
The money was put up, and tho
stranger, who had given his name as
Walter Redmond, walked over toward
tho littlo woman in uniform, and, after
bowing profoundly, took a seat by her
At first the woman seemed to Lo very
indignant, and the traveling man
thought lie had tho 20 won. A minute
later, however, Redmond's arm stole
around tho woman's waist. Tho specta
tors then Legan to open their eyes wide.
One of them said: "That fellow has a
whole lot of influence over that girl. It
may Lo that he is a hypnotist." Red
mond talked for probably two minutes
and then kissed the woman.
Redmond walked over to the stake
holdtr and received his money. Ho then
started from tho depot. The little wo
man quickly arose from her seat, and,
taking his arm, walked to Ninth and
Broadway, where the couple took an
East Broadway car. Redmond is tall

A HINT TO ARTISTS.
One Way of Patting- Rejected Kxhlbits to
They wero riding on the Fourteenth
street cars and their conversation was
edifying. Tho man with tho long hair
was evidently a sculptor, and his com
panion, a large, jolly looking fellow,
was trying to persuade him to present a
Work of art to soino society woman who
had a mania for collecting Lric-a-brao
and articles of vertu.
"I told her that you would, I thought,
in time present her with some memen
to, a statuette illustrating your peculiar
style. Was I wrong in saying so?"
The sculptor answered indignantly:
"I know her value of art, and I tell you
she cannot distinguish between manu
factured trinkets and works of art. In
fact, sho thinks all artists aro manufac
turers and can turn out statuettes as
easily as the rich stove ornament man
who gave her a nickel plated mule.
Then, too, a brass fixture artist gave
her something from the brass foundry,
and she thought it great. Never, in my
judgment, could sho appreciate a true
work of art. "
"Then you refuse to give her a sam
ple of your work? Remember, sho has
great influence. "
"I do not refuso. I'll give her that
model in plaster of paris which was re
fused by the committee last month. She
will think it great, whether or not the

A Dramatic Assassination.
By far the most dramatic royal assas
sination was that of the Emperor Paul
of Russia on March 24, 1801, by hia
nobles. As usual Paul had retired to
rest booted and spurred and in his regi
mentals. At the dead of night ho was
awakened by an unusual noise. The
hussar who guarded his chamber door
the only faithful sentry, as it proved,
in the palace was being killed by nine
nobles. They burst into the room and
began to attack the emperor. Paul hid
behind chairs and tables and begged for
his life. He offered to make each of hia
assailants a prince. He offered to abdi
cate in vain. Then he made a wild dash
for the window, fearfully gashing him
self, but he waa dragged back. He
seized a chair and for some time kept
the nine of them at bay, and only after
terrific struggles waa he seized and
strangled with his own sash.

publish sometime this year some ex
ceedingly interesting and valuablo
papers relating to the organization of
Nebraska in 185-5.3 into a territory,
