twelve months' period as the one clos-1

down in railway history
year will go
as the worst
since the panic of lSttl'. and almost as
bad as the year 1S70.
i The railroads of the United States
j were compelled to see their gross rev
j enues decrease by at least $2l0.(HK.(ti'
I ami their net earnings lowered 'by at
j least $180. 000, (MX). Such a sudden drop
in the revenues of the railroads mces
j aarily crippled many industries besides
! that of manufacturing anil selling
j transportation. II is estimated that
j an army of at lease o.OoO.OOO people de
pends uimii the railroads directly for
its living and that a greater army of
fully 17,HH),000 is dependent directly
or indirectly upon railway activities for
daily bread. That this army was

Addresses the Presbyterian j
Brotherhood on Boy and
Girl Delinquents. '
Judge Lee Estelle, of Omaha adress- i
i ed the Presbyterian Brotherhood at the
! church Sunday evening, on the .subject
.children- delinquents. His. lecture was
.very entertaining, and instructive. Be
fore proceeding with hi lecture Judge
Estelle paid a fine tribute, to Judge !
Samuel Chapman, deceased, Judge ;
Chapman being one of the first! men in '.
Plattsmouth with, whom the speaker'
got acquainted,' and he referred to the
Judge Chapman's courage and fidelity .
with much feeling. The lecture deliver-;
ed by Judge Estelle was far out of the j
ordinary, his subject being in his daily j
work.. Many times during the discourse
so vivid were the Judge's portrayals, and
sq pathetic the objects of his decisions,
many eyes in his audience were moist.
The speaker wa3 of the opinion that
two of the most wholesome laws on our
statute books were the Childs labor law
and the law establishing the juvenile
court. The Judge says that society will
have to answer to the child that is
deprived of the chance of going to
school, and that society should support
the invalid mothers and helpless broth
ers and sisters, and allow the. boy and
girl a chance to go to school. That
many children needed less mathematics
and more love of the beautiful instilled
into their natures.
The sneaker said that the system was ,
wrong that did not build character, and
that an education that did not make
character is a menace. The lecture was
full of pathos and touching incidents of
human frailties which had come under
the Judge's observation, and was one
to the hearts of his listeners, more
than any the writer has heard for a
number of years.

On the first of January the Cass
county Farmer's Institute closed a two
days session in this city. The meetings
were fairlv attended considering the
season and the many attractions in t he j
city to draw the farmers away from
the meetings. The speakers were of
more than ordinary ability this session
and with the exception of the night
session on the first day, they were all
present to fill their dates. The talk of
Mr. Eldridge the road expert was
practical and gave the farmers new
ideas relative to securing the best of
attention to the roads. In about
twenty states Road Commissions are
formed in the state, which looks after
the roads question. The commission is
represented by local superintendents in
the counties, who report to the county
commissioners and thus an organized
body of men are entrusted with the
work, and good results always follow.
The Farmers institute promises to do
many good things for the farmers and '
a better meeting is being planned for
next year. i
