The H. & M. have evidently become
tired of having employes of the shops
at Havelock live in the city of Lincoln,
and on the first of the month will dis
continue the daily train between the
two places. This move will have the
effect of causing the shop men to re
side in Havelock or provide their own
conveyances to and from work.
An eastern paper says that it's more
fun to see a man read a puff on him
self in a newspaper than to see a fat
man slip on a banana peel. The nar
row minded man reads it over seven or
eight times and then goes around and
steals appropriates what copies he
can. The kind-hearted man goes home
and reads it to his wife and then pays
up his dues to the paper. The suc
cessful business man who advertises
regularly and makes money by it im
mediately starts to find the editor and
speaks words of acknowledgement,
and then two men leave the s actum
and walk silently and thoughtfully
down the street together and the busi
ness man takes sugar in his'n and they
both eat a clove or two and all life is
sweeter and peace like a gentle dove
settles down on their hearts for that
moment. Such is the experience of
seed as it falls on different sod.
The Nebraska City News snys that
Matthew Uering was not satisfied
with the result of the recent base ball
game between the county officials of
Otoe and Cass counties, and has
authorized them to issue a challenge
lo the members of the Utoe county
bar. Matt said that he could select
nine lawyers in Cass county that could
beat any nine lawjers in Otoe county,
and they did not have to wait for any
time in which to practice. In this
challenge he stated very emphatically
that only lawjers in good standing at
the bar would be eligible to play, and
that no deputies or representatives
would be permitted.
The late rains assure the fall grain
crop. The rye is looking well, and
will make a large yield. The tall
wheat generally is in fair condition,
and that on new ground is good. Oats
never looked so well as this season.

He would quit buying where he
thought he was not getting his money's

the editor saying so, and be sure all

An Ohio girl recently sent her plio-

The corner room of the Fitzgerald
block, occupied by the First National
bank, has been undergoing some alter
ations and repairs during the past
week that add greatly to the appear
ance of that corner. The entire front
has been taken out and replaced by
large plate glass, and the entrance
changed from the middle to the west
side. This change will allow the alter
ation and improvement of the interior
or office fixtures, lint the best part of
all the many improvements around
this banking house is that the horrid
ereen wall paper that has adorned the
walls of late is to be covered by new
paper of a less inflammatory pattern.
The Lincoln News says: Whenever
Governor Helcotnb finds time hanging
heavily on his right hand he simply ap
points Dr. Abbott as superintendent
of the Lincoln asylum again. This is
pleasing to both the governor and the

ence with the present superintendent.
It cannot be said with propriety that
the state legislatures which have bus

in different parts of the country since
Christmas, have altogether satisfied
the people in regard to legislation on
the delays and expense of litigation.
A cheap and speedy means of redress
of grievances and settlement of dis

these there ought to be a general sim
plification of the ways to proceed. De

formulate, but whilst courts are being
multiplied and law machinery pro
vided, it would be well for the bar to
perfect a system whereby costs may be
largely reduced and the dispatch of
cases greatly accelerated.

The Cuban rebellion has been kept
alive more by guerrilla warfare than
by open fighting. An encounter be
tween rebels and Spanish troops oc
curred on April 10th at 1'alma Miros,
which resulted in dispersing the rebels,
after several of them had been killed.
Tho real trouble remains, however, as
it was in tho beginning. The leaders
of tho rebel parties, Maximo, Gomez
and J se Marti, have not succeeded in
landingou the island, and consequently
the rebel army is unable to make any
decided move. Even if the rebel army
were prepared to engage in an open
rebellion, there would be little chance
of its success against the large number
of trained Spanish troops, against
which they would have to figNt.
The fact that Spain considers the
Cuban uprising as a serious matter, is
shown in tho recent appointment of
General Martinez de Caulpos, Spain's
most famous soldier diplomat, to suc
ceed General Emilio Calleja, as cap-
tain-gene ral ot Cuba. General Mar
tinez de Campos has been a prominent
figure in Spanish affairs 'or many years.
On 1876 he was sent to Cuba to quell a
rebellion, which had been in progress
for twelve years, Ry his wise and de
cisive act the titngled thread of Cuban
affairs was soon unraveled, and peace
was restored. The restoration of the
house of IJjurbou to the Spanish,
throne, and the consequent fall of the
Carlist party, was due largely to the
efforts of the Spanish general. He
held the position of Spanish premirs
for fomf tint-, but resigned on ac
count of political changes. General
Martinet de Campos has arrived in
Cuba anil the leal cause of the trouble
will, it is thought, be found out, and
quiet agiin restored. He has already
offered pardon to all rebels, except the
leaders, that surrender of their own

A change has recently been effected
in the copyright law, which protects
the rights of an artist against having
his pictures copied by other persons or
Heretofore the picture copyright law
imposed a fine of $100 for each impres
sion of a copy of a photograph made in
defiance of the copyright law. In con
sequence of this law any large news
paper firm which; by accident or other
wise, published a copyrighted picture,
was obliged to pay a sum so great as
to leave the firm bankrupt. In fact
the sum required for any infringement
of this law was sufficient to induce
persona or firms possessing copyrights
to use fraudulent means to get other
firms to make copies of their pictures.
In view of the injustice of this law,
a change was brought about during the
last congress. The Ltw now provides
that the sum of not less than $100 and
not more than $1,000 shall be paid for
any infringement on a copyrighted
photograph, and that a sura not below
$230 and not exceeding $3,000 shall be
required for any infringement on copy
