- Some envious cold standard news-
papers are very uiuctt interested in the
question as to how Win. J . Bryan is
paid for his sneaking work iu behalf
of bimetallism. I lie Plattsmouth
Xews and its Nebraska City name
sake are bnsv inventing calumnies on
this score. The latter has learned
that Iih cot $100 for lecturing at Mex
ico. Mo., ''and hence had an overflow
meeting." Ordinary courtesy ought
to shut the mouths of these cavillers,
hut it don t. neeause a man is suc
cessful and can command the price of
10O for a lecture, it occurs to us,
ought to make it his private business
whether he gets that or some other
stun, or whether he gives his time and
expenses free, as he has done in uearly
every case, to our knowledge. These
couls of the press forget that Mr.
Bryan is poor, and ought to have the
privilege of earning a few dollars in
that way, just as a lawyer would in
the way of fees for trying a suit in
court. The newspapers named would
be better employed in trying to answer
some of Mr. Bryan's arguments on the
stiver question than in casting mean
rimes at his methods in his private af

A LOCAL WRITER COMPLIMENTED.
Mrs. Isabel Ilichey of Plattsmouth
has been highly honored in having
one of her poems published in a book
called "(Greatest Single Poems." The
book was published in New York but
a short time ago. Mrs. Itichey is the
urst real noet .Nebraska has ever
turned o.it. There have been many
who have written verse, and some have
written a bit once in a while that has
come very near poetry. but Mrs. Bichey
ha written the only exalted and truly
artistic poetry. The bay should be
placed upon her head as Nebraska's
poet. From the Lincoln Evening Call

Some Colorado mines are turning

who are blamed for making money out

A dispatch from Denver carries to
the cred'ilous people of the east the
interesting information that "western
Kansas is under, from one to three
feet of water, that lies on the flat
praii ie like a lake, extending for miles
as tar as the eye can reach from the
trains of the llock Island. " At Ak
ron, on the Burlington, it repre
senced there is "two feet of water on
the prairie," but after all, the farmers
are not discouraged, but are out
"planting in the storm " That means,
of course, that they are casting their
bread upon the waters, following the
fashion of the planters along the val
ley of the Nile. What the people of
the plains need more than anything
else is a press censorship authorized to
cut oft the heads of the special cor

If aldermen of Chicago are shocked
by the appearance of bloomers, we
should advise a nerve tonic. And, if
an ordinance is necessaty, let the men
of Chicago be forbidden to stare and
jeer at the bloomer-costumed bicycli-
ennes. We may admit that the trous
ers are innovations, but are we not al
ways suffering from innovation of the
same sort? Woman's fashions are very
iPt to be outlandish and ugly on
first appearance, but we get used to
them and in time admire them for
what they contain. We first endure,
then pity, then embrace. There are
hundreds of young women in this city,
and we presume in other cities, who
would gladly adopt the bloomer cos
tume for bicycling, but they are
afraiil of criticisms and taunts of
thoughtless men. We expect, however,
that they will per.-it in ?qite of all
contumely. It is none of ihe meu's

Most new lasmons wmen snow a
radical change from long-established
modes meet as a rule with extreme op
position from the majority, yet many of
these very fashions finally win then
way to popular favor by sheer force of
insistence. Scores of derisive adjectlvet
have been applied to the atteau and
aack-back coats, but it appears that thj
feelings of many of those who expressed
n adverse opinion of them have under
gone something more man mouiii ca
tion, and the sack-back and the Wat
tcau models are actually looming "up in
quite general favor. This can in a way
be accounted for. There are certain
articles of apparel that, for elegance and
fitness, are almost entirely dependent
on contemporary fashions. The trained
skirt was a necessary adjunct to the
new coat. Still advice is given to any
woman whose stature is under live feet
three inches to avoid it. N. Y. Post.

It has sometimes been said that nee
dle work has become one of the lost
.rts. Soon after the inventus of the
machine it was confidently predicted
that machine work would eventually
supersede the needle. But while the in
vention, the greatest boon that inven-
i tive skill has ever given to toiling
womanhood, is not for a moment to bft
underrated, it has simply leen proved
to be simply an adjunct to needlework,
not a substitute for it. It is just as w
Mntial to-day that a child should "bo
trained to fell, hem and gusset work, as
it was the day Elias Howe conceived his
Idea of the machine. The machine is
all the more valuable, now that we have
found out what its limitations are and
how to mako the best use of it. Men
are no louger called upon to rack their
brains to inveni new hemmers or fell
ers, when people co longer Want ma
chine hems or machine fells.
The old-fashioned hand fell is quite
generally superseded, however, by the
fcoft French bag-seam, which washes
well and does not become hard and yel
low with wear, and may be done by the
machine. A great many ladies who
have their work done in the daintest
manner prefer a Neatly-whipped seam
to either a fell or bag seam. It seems
to us that the old-fashioned running
Hitch by whieh tucks were made is no
longer of any use, as the machine-stitching
is more quickly done and strauger
and better than any running stitch ean
be. In short, all seams if properly put
In by a machine are the stronger and
letter for it. Ilems, however, should
fclwarsbedone by hand and it is a piece oi
vulgarity to put on with a machine stitct
lace or any trimming which is not
nroperly laid in place with a seam.
Lace should be whipped on and flat
trimmings, like passementerie, bands
of velvet or riblonf should be put on
with blind stiudies. The art of the
dressmaker and seamstress is no less an
art now than it was before we had the

the German mother docs in all the es
sentials of fine needlework, more es
pecially in hemming, overcasting seam
and other work which can not be done
well by a machine. As soon as the
child is able to use her hands, while she
is yet counted in babyhood, she should
be given a prattj' little work
bag and thimble and bright bit
of cotton and silk to U-arn the
overcast seam. Little German girls of
four or five years sometimes do mar
vellous work with the needle. Hut the
tiny toddler's first efforts are likely to
be more play than work, and the re
cults may be crude and erratic. Never
theless, it is her small discipline, her
tittle store added to a workaday world,
and she i quite likely to take a great
deal of satisfaction from it.
When she has learned to do her over
casting seam well, she may be taught to
run and to hem, and finally arrive at
the honor of making a whole dress for

horrid colors. In the cottages of tha

only the subject of gossip of neighbor

paternal relations. It is only when the
conduct of a IJoukautki culminates in
serious acts of violation, mutilations,
