Tho Treating Habit
Lincoln, the capital city of Ne
braska, is a "dry" town that' is,
there are no saloons in Lincoln. This,
however, is a matter of recent oc
currence. A few days ago four printers
started from a newspaper office,
headed for the base ball grounds.
Their course took them by four
buildings formerly occupied by sa
loons, which impelled one of them
to jokingly remark:
"I'd ask you in to have some
thing, but everything is-closed."
"O, not all the places are closed,"
said another one. "Come in here
with me and have something."
, With, this the speaker headed into
la clothing store, followed by three
"Give me a lay-down collar, size
sixteen, and give each of these fel
lows the kind of a collar they want."
Each man gave his size and style
and the clerk wrapped, the four col
lars in separate packages. Each man
took his package and walked out.
Not a word was said for about a
block, and then the man who hAd
first spoken blurted out:
"Say, wouldn't all of us had a lot
of collars and ties,' and shirts and
such things if we'ti had good sense?"
Speaking of Cuts
"Let's go fishing. The railroads
are .advertising cut rates."
"Can't do it. My garden is ad
vertising cut worms." :
Out of Place
The tariff commission having con
tinued in session for 'steen .weeks,
and being somewhat wearied by its
arduous labors, the chairman re
marked: "Have the representatives of the
steel industry concluded?"
"And of the sugar interests?"
"And the wool, cotton, lumber,
iron, coke, coal, oil and cordage in
terests?" All had. finished.
"Are there any other interests that
desire to be heard?" inquired the
"If you please, Mr. Chairman," re
marked a small man in a timid tone
of voice, "I represent a few interests
that desire to be heard."
"Well, what interests do you rep
resent?" v. asked the chairman;
"I represent the people who have
to buy what all these other interests
make and control the consumers."
Immediately the commission ad
journed, almost in a gale of laughter.
The will to do is half the battle.
What would rest you might weary
the other fellow.
We never believe in the doctrine of
total depravity until tho umpire
gives the worst of it to the home
The idea some men have of home
is that it is a place where they can
get. waited on without giving tips.
If wisdom always came with years
there, would not be so many foolish
gentlemen of middle age.
Poor as we are, we've got more
than Mr. H H. Rogers' took with him
after a' lifetime spent in accumulation.
JAUNTS FOR JOY
"Controlling small western states,
which pass among their sisters for
sovereign, is a diversion only a few
of us can afford. In Salt Lake City
are located the home offices of the
Union Pacific, the Oregon Short Line,
the Central Pacific, the Salt Lake,
Los Angeles and San Pedro Line, and
several Rio Grande Western branch
es. The legislature of Utah is now
in session; privileges it grants to
these corporations they may carry
into other states. Of widespread in
terest, therefore; become Mr. Harri
man's many plans to lfghten the bur
den of this legislature's daily labors.
Before it was a week old, each of
its members1 had been provided 'with
passes "good only within the state
of Utah, not godd for any part of an
interstate trip," on alj of the state's
railroads. To showhow liberal Mr.
Harriman could be 'to one of whom
he thought much, each, legislator and
his dependents, unto the third cousin
of the colored doorkeeper's friend,
was provided with a Union Pacific
pass, in spite of the fact that an Ore
gon Short Line pass, already provid
ed, carried its holder over all of Har
rlman's Utah trackace. As the legis
lative grind was beginning, a week's
end junket was arranged for a nine
car special (diier attached wi.th
meals free.) to the northern border
of. the state. Lincoln's birthday ws
fittingly celebrated with another com
plimentary jnnket,aqrdss thp 'Great
Salt .Lake cutoff. When a joint. sen
ate and house committee found that
it needed to inspect a Green Tiver
bridge .site on the state's .eastern
border; Pullman cars to carry thirty
people were promptly put at the com
mittee's disposal. This hospitality is
not sudden. After the legislature in
1901 had passed a law, with less than
one hour's deliberation in both,
houses, granting the Union Pacific
the right to increase its capitalization
$100,000,000, the legislature was
bundled upon a special train of Pull
man cars bound for Boise. Two years
ago, when extravagant railroad de
mands appeared in the legislature
under the guise of "a bill for an act
to codify existing railroad legisla
tion," President Stephen H. Lowe of
the state senate raised his voice in
protest that ''existing railroad legis
lation" was the shame of Utah. He
was eliminated from public life.
"I hear that Biggerstaff isi very
