I Lave over and over again seen In
Ktanccs of breakdown in young Hople,
wulcb by Judicious management, moral
and physical, on tlie part of the moth
er, could have Ihu averted. I know of
no clre'jaistaneeH whlcb so deeply af-j
feet the nervous health and the" bapiii
liess, prenent and future, of the child
as the intimate domestic relations with
the parent. It seems poKfdlile for most
children to l)ear a great deal of dis
appointment outside of the domestic
life when they feel sure of moral sup
port at home.
We hear so much of young girls not
being understood In their homes that
we are apt to make light of mid rail
It a foolish whim, and often without
Injustice; but, on the other band, It Is
equally true that fretfulness, obstina
cy, caprielousuess, unwise ambitions
and fitfulness are often rather the out
come of disordered nervous systems
than the manifestations of badly bal
anced character.
Now It Is that the mother often fails
to understand exactly how to treat the
child, and Is too likely to make mis
takes, which frequently come perilous
ly near being !d ami Irrevocable ones.
It is essential that she learn to dis
criminate between what Is really per
Terseness on the one hand and the re
sult of upset nerves on the other; for,
while the former requires moral cor
rection, the latter demands a different
care. The physical, as well as the
moral conditions needs attention.

No one who Is not doing It all the
time knows the amount of physical la
bor and the many steps required to get
ven a comparatively simple dinner.
That Is to say nothing alxiut clearing
up after It. which Is another matter.
Then to get a dinner and try to sit
down to It with guests doubles the la
bor. It I much easier for tile maid
who serves It, clears up things as she
goes along, and then quietly ents her
dinner later and do'c not mix with her
effort to hare - everything properly
served an attempt to say the right
thing at the right moment to each of
her guests.
It has been said and recorded as a
trnnge fact that the great cooks are
always men, and cooking is supposed
to be particularly In woman's sphere.
One very good reason for this failure
In women to reach the highest place Is
that the great cook adds to his other
obllltles that of strength, and It Is an
essential requirement. The best cor
don bleu without It cannot equal him.

It l always more courteous lu a man

reasons why Jt may not be possible for
you to wear a dress suit. You may
not have time, or you may not be In

are In the habit of wearing one It cer
tainly would seem very strange to
choose this opportunity for not wearing
It, and undoubtedly the y6uiigTady

Ting-pong has become quite the fash

played with the greatest enthusiasm
by ladles. The khedivah, mother to

table In her magnificent new palace

every day. One great advantage that
they have Is ft number of slaves In at

of picking up their bnlls.
Quite a number of titled ladles have

To Clean Hrn Troy.
Brass trays are kept In order by slm
ply washing them In boiling hot soda
soapsuds and then lathering them wen
a little soap being used If they art
very dirty. One way of cleaning them
Is to sift fine brlckdust till It Is very
flue powder. Take up a good portion
of this on half n lemon (previously used
I i lemonade or sherbet making) and
rub the tray well over with this, care-
fullv going over any stains till re
moved, and then rinsing and letting it
dry. Treated In this manner trays keep
clean and an admirable color for a long
time. Metal polish and such things
spoil the color, giving It a yellow tinge
quite different from the golden brass It
looks when cl'MPed with lemon Juice
and tine brlckdust.

Important to keep the teeth In good

exercise for the rest of the body, and if

Humboldt, Neb, Aug. 10. Events
of the past few weeks In this city
tend to rudely shatter the romance
which was started In Lincoln In
July, 1901, when Governor Savage
handed a pardon to Benjamin Vaek,
a convict sent up rrom some western
county on a charge of perjury, the
conditions being that h? marry Mrs.
Mary Hilvaty, a widow of this city
who petitioned the governor's per
sonally to grant the man's release.
The marriage took place In the capi
tal city and aCter the ceremony was
completed the governor handed the1
bride an unconditional pardon for
her husband. The marriage was not
without Its interesting features, (he
widow being possessed of property to
the estimated value of $40,000, most
of It In Richardson county real estate.
Most people thought the ex-convlct
most fortunate In droppiogon such a
comfortable berth. The couple at
once came to Dawson and took up
their residence, and for a time mat
ters ran along smoothly, the happy
bride purchasing a barber shop and
fixtures for her busbad who worked
at his trrHe a short time, afterwards
becomln, HlsatlsBed and selling out.
There were twochldren, the fruits
of the widow's former alliance, and
when It came to the matter of gov
erning the youngsters the first cloud
appeared upon the matrimonial horl-
son. The stepfather insisted upon
correcting the boy and girl and, ac
cording to the story told by the
wife, was not always particular
whether he chose humane methods or
not. Tbe wife rebelled and Valek
turned his attention to her with the
result that he was a few months ago
hauled into police court and fined on
a charge of wlfe-beatlng. Not po-
sossiDg the necessary funds he was
thrown Into Jail and remained until
the wife relented and paid. Last
week more trouble of the same kind
came up and they seperated, the wife
filing application In district court
for a divorce. Valek is a man of nice
appearance and seems to bo well edu

Fonda Lang of Calaway died at the

plication of ailments. Responsible
for her troubles, which, it Is alleged,
she came to Kearney to hide, is a

live on a farm near Callaway, and are
said to be In gno' circumstances,

Chicago. Aug. 23. The coroner's
Jury at the Inquest Thursday over

murder, aud that Oscar Thompson
and Edward Counselman, who are

During the inquest, Mrs. May
Brown, a former neignbor of Mrs.
Bartholin, testified that the old lady
was suspicious ,and lived in deadly
fear of her son. According to Mrs.
Brown's testimony, Mrs. Bartholin
in a conversation a few days befoie
her death had told the witness thai
young Bartholin was nothing but a
beast and that the Mitchell family
would regret the day they allowed
Minnie Mitchell to have anything to
do with him. Mrs. Bartholin in re

The police hope for moresubsantlal
results from this inquest than from
the similar proceedings yesterday in
the Minnie Mitchell case. Although
the result of tbe coroner's jury ver
dict yesterday was the holding of
three men to the grand jury for com
plicity in the murder of the supposed
Mitchell girl, such grave doubts exist
over tbe identity of the body that
was buried as Miss Mitchell that ef
forts were renewed today to have the
Mitchell family exhume the body for
further inspection.
Doubtful identity will be the bur
den of the defense of Oscar Thompson,
John Claffey and Edward Counselman
who were held yesterday to answer
for the supposed Mitchell crime. The
first two already stood as principal
and accessory in tbe murder of Mrs.
Bartholin. As yet nothing definite
has been heard of the whereabouts of
William J. Bartholin. Much doubt
exists, however, as to whether Miss
Mitche'l Is dead.
Mrs. Brown testified that Bartholin
had frequently quarreled with his
moher and struck her. She said Mrs.
Bartholin hada considerable amount
of mtioey just before she disappeared.
Late in the day the coroner's jury
returned a verdict that Mrs. Bartho
lin came to her death oa July 5 from
strangulation and recommended that

as principal in the murder,) and Ea
