" Women May Vote.
Women may vote in school meet
ings, l nans, sue may vote if she prop
erly qualities herself. The require
ments are of three kinds; she may own
real estate in the district; she may have
personal property upon the assessment
roll ; oi she may hav e babies more than
five years old. If she complies with
either of these conditions, she may exer
cise the yeoman s privilege. The prop
erty requirement may be defended pos
sibly on the ground that if she pays
taxes she has interest ia the disposal
of school money ; but w lien tlyj privi
lege of voting is dependent upon her
babies, we submit that it is rather hard
to require her to commence five or six
years back. Two good yearling babips
are worth as much as one rive year old
anytime. And we believe that this
should be like the naturalization law,
which does not require an applicant to
be fully naturalized, but lets him vote
when he has declared his intentions.

New and Practical Imprureuicnts.
We have just introduced and
thoroughly tested many improvements
in our course of studies and manner
of imparting instruction and now of
fer a thorough course in both theory
Our course of "Business Practice"
baa ali of the advantages of the East
man and other methods without any
of their unavoidable attendants of
noise, idleness, fiction or expensive
ness. This course recognizes the necessity
of pupils having well established prin
ciples for -practice, . wiiich it is tho
siecial purpose of our theoretical
pourse to thoroughly teacU ; when tike
coursa of Business practice quickly
enables any jijdustrious pupil to com
prehend the details and connections of
business and the true relations cf the
accountants thereto and give an un
precedented practical readinesa in
making and using any of the business
papers used by the most expert ac
countants. This course is not the fiction of mere
theories nor is it intenUed t supply
the place of thorough practical instruc
tors by the display oi pretended offices
banks, bazaars, &c, to make idlers and
dummies believe that they can acquire
efficiency without study or teaching.
But it is the result wf long study and
many efforts of the most thorough
teachers, practical business men and
experienced accountants, who were
well acquainted with the former
methods.- Assured that the practical
utility of this course will be appreci
ated and that it will son supercede
all ethers, we will teach it fiec of
charge to all who enter for the theoret
ical course within a reasonable time.

The Auulterat ou of food.
Strict State's-rights advocates may
demur to the measure of having a
commission of tbree' experts to inquire
into the adulieration of food iu the
United States. Of pourse it is both
proper and incumbent upon t.be Legis
latures of the several States to pVutect
their citizens from the cheating and
the danger of adulteratious. But if
we can rely ou the startling statements
of analytical chemUU ty the House
Committee on Epidemic Diseased, it
may be that it would be x i&e to have
a general act of Congress so siriygwn;
as to bring uniform relief ad protec
tion. A Chicago chemist examined
fourteen samples of sugar, some white,
some colored, so tie granulated; in
twelve he found tin in the form of a
chUiide, ha votive poison. He found
that several syru'w wera made essen
tially of glucose, with iu., i-ium,
iron and magnesia, and in quantities
that made them very poisonous.
Sugar is largejy adulterated with glu
cose. Othei- articles found. to be adul
terated were bating powders- confec
tionery, mustard, viuegar, tea and cof
fee. It is evident that nothing but
very strict laws, with heavy penalties,

thfcse.rensive and scandalous assaults
upon the pvkets and the health of the

Times at The I'lif Teisiijv
Since the founding of the Univer
sity, nothing has caused as much gen
oral exciirmei.t -and cuiniuents
throughout the state as the late
trouble over the College Paper, viz:
"The Hesperian Student." This paper
is published by the students and each
t the two Literary Societies elect an
Editor-in-chflf and fuse on the rest of
the officers. The Palladian Society
elected their Editor without any
trouble but uot so wilh the Union So
ciety, the two faction- are so nearly
equal, that after two or three meet
ings in which no selection was made,
the affair was referred o the Faculty
by one Faction, much to the disgust
and opposition of the other. Tho Fac
ulty after investigating the affair de
cided in favor of the partv that had
referred the matter to them and gave
their decision in chapl, but imagine
their (the faculty's) surprise on seeing
the paper appear the next day with
the name of the one whom they had
decided against as editcr-in-chief from
the Uuion Society.. Such a bold ac
tion on the part of the students could
not be overlooked and thev held that
the Board of Managers were responsi
ble for the printing of the paper and
unless thev could prove that they
were not instrumental in its appear
ance, they would be suspended, and as
they could no! or rather would not do
this, the,-, seven in mnaber, were

Ed. IIeiiald: Was glad to see my!
urticle ou tho railroad question iu your
columns of March 3d.
Now, Editor, when I wrote the arti
cle I did'ut intend to- any criti
cism on the editor or his paper, only
what 1 wrote I still adhere to.
Your article of Feb. 17th from the
Omaha Republican, you claim was the
sentiments of both sides. I claim, and
very person I have spoken to on the
subject claims, that it represents the
railroad sh e only. It gives Mr. Tou
zalin's sde of the question only. Iu
Vour answer,of March 3d ywti claim
you did not publish the railroad side
only ; you claim you did not omit what
-Mr. Hose water said; "you also claim
Mr. Rose water did not publish both
sides of the question. We farmers
claim he did. If you look in the Oma
ha Bee of Feb. 10th, you will see both
sides published. Now you claim the
editor ef the Hf.t:ali was snowed in
at Lincoln, and did not " return, until
the next week, which prevented your
giving the principal points on lioth
sides. Vow, editor, if that was the
casebow was it you gave Mr. Touza
liu'sside? It is strange if the mails
were delayed how Mr. Touzalin's re
marks were on time. Now yon claim
myself or lrieuds, if I have any, (come
out Mac. and see) had better lead
straight before we criticise. As I told
you, I didn't intend to cast any reflec
tion? on the editor, only stating facts.
In return you publish an insulting an
swer. You said you had to re-wriie
my letter before it was lit for publica
tion, also to pay up for the paper we
take. Now, Mr. Editor. 1 didn t claim
to have a college education, but I claim J
to have as good an e.'.ucauon as most
of the farmer boys. 1 am sorry it
takts such a fine education to be a cor
respondent of the Plattsjiouth IlEK-i
A Li). The last remark contains some
truth; send in your little bill, Mac, and
it will be settled if I have to borrow
the money. Now, you claim my letter
represents my sentiments, and those
of some one else; the letter was my
own, it it had been anybody e!s's it
might have been fit for publication.
Since your .answer a good many farm
ers have said the letter was right.
Yon say my letter was like the boy's
story the politician told alxnitlast fall
it isii t true. 1 claim it is. ami can
prove it by taking your own paper and
the Bee. "You said you was coming
out to see; come ahead and we will
treat you more like a gentleman than
urn have treated me in jour paper.
Hoping this will find space in your
columns I remivir. yours respectfully.

strapped ou a mule up at the office
ready for acthfii in a moment.
Then we jawed, he had the most jaw
but we had the best wiud, and Cavey
caved, provided we would publish one
more letter. W have, it's up here,
you can all read it. It's just like the
other. It ain't tru; it goes over the
same ground, it re-asserts just what
we proved were not the facts. It's too
thin to answer.

with boys.drowninghis joys;
Drinking with men just now aud then.
Waiting his life, killing his wife,
Losing respect, manhood all wrecked,
Losing his friends thus it all ends.
GIa3 number one, taken in fun,
Ruined his life, brought on strife.
Blighted hs youth, sullied his truth,
In a few years brought many tears,
Gave only pain, stole all his gain,
Made him at last friendless, outcast.
Light-hearted boy, some body's joy.
Do not begin early in sin;
Grow up a unvn brave as you can:
Taste not in fun glass number one.

i - ' . -In
diving for clams (iu in etonus

with sharp 'pointed stake -.or an iron
rod. At Artutaki. When the tide is out.
ehinis ae picked up everywhere on the ;
reef. At Mauka men dive for them - on
the ocean side of the narrow fringing;
reef when the sea is smooth. On reaching
,the bottom the diver stabs the gaping
clam, which-for tho nidlhisk i very
tenacious of life at once tirtnlj- gr.np
the weapon. The diver now tugs with
both hand-s until the clam is dislodged.
A couole of expert natives with a canoe
will get as many .-n a hundred in a day
when a least n in preparation, m
Manibiki aiul Htkaanga the largest
clams are about two spans in length,
the animal it-elf U'iiig sutlioiontly l uge
to satisfy the hunger of threv persons.
Clam diving is wo:i.:i'i's work in those
atolls. Yet it is surprising how fw ac
cidents occur. Thtf r. aon for this may
be thej- dive in comparatively shallow
Not lonrr since a native was feeling
about the b-'itom of the. lagoon of one
of tho Pauniolu a'ohs f.r tins dark
edged pearl oyster, when he unfortun
ately inserted "the ligers of his left baud
ltetween the valves of a clam. Tho
diver was instantly made prisoner by
the molhisk. His agny was iutenio.
Wai it possible to get free. As the
c!airwad in a hollow just adapted to its
size, he could not sever the byssua. At
length, in sheer terror of drowning, he
cut"off his four lingers with the knife
pearl-divers carry with them, and rose
to the surface a sadder if not a wiser
man. A similar accident took place at
Peuryns; but the diver, instead of maim
ing himself for life, forced a knife
beTween the valves and released him
self. Should the clam be attached to a
smooth bit of coral, the speediest mode
of rescue is to sever the bundle, of silky
lilament by which it moors itself. On
a neighboring is'and, ere this could be
doiuCthe forefinger of the right hand of
a clam-diver was lopped off. Brought
ashore in baskets, they live for some
time. Children in their play are apt to
put thcis- lingers between the open
valves, and "so get caught. Their
screams so m bring their parent to tho
rescue, which i e lied ci by stabbing
the clam thron ;'i the cavity for the
bvssus. Tim supply of tlmus in the
Pacific is itipxhai'-iiole. If a party of

fiv.ne sp.t. n difference would be per
ceive!, so rapid U the growth of the
clam m t .es.; warm waters. Pearls of
a peculiarly brilliant hue are occasional
ly found in the clam.
QreeDbose and Window Plants.
Insects, when found on the plants,
should be destroyed at once bjr using
tobacco water, soapsuds, etc. PlanU,
if neglected, may be ruined in a short
time. Success in the light with insects
depends largely upon one's promptness
Climbers, like English ivy, tropajo
luiu, German ivy, etc., add very much
to the beauty of a greenhouse or win
dow. Hanging baskets should be placod
where they can have an abundance of
light aud" sunshine, and not near the
stove or i-egister. If tho light come
from one side, the basket ought to be
turned every day.
Watering: The successful culture of
house plants depends largely upon the
care in watering. The pots should have
some pieces of brokcu iHts or oj'ster
shell put in the bottom to provide pro
per drainage; with good drainage there
is but little risk from over-watering.
A thorough wetting when water is need
ed, is far better than keeping the sur
face moist, by frequent "sprinkling."
Hanging baskets-may be dipped into a
tub of water.
A gradual change: We should have
much fewer complaints of failure with
house plants if they were less subjected
to sudden changes", both when they are
brought in from their summer out-of-
doors, and while in the house in winter.
When the air of the room, is changed it
should be done without allowing a cold
current to fall upon the plants.
Invention IV Oaliaing the Stormy Sea.
A recent cab e from lon ion, says?
The inventive gniu of a Scotchman,
has, if we are to be'i'-ve the Scotch pa
pers of to-day, found a way to accom
plish something which man has never
before dreamed of name! v, calming
the stormy sea. Mr. Shield's, of Perth,
has invented a way of stilling tho waves
of the ocean, and put it into successful
operation. He sinks bottles filled with
oil; the bottles are opened by a process
devised by the inventor, and the oil,
ascending lo the surface, stills the
waves, thus reducing the proverb
about "pouring oil upon the troubled
waters" to practice. The invention
his betn. lestoil at Pcl.erb.ead, it is said,
wilh amazing success. The Scotch pa
pers are full of it. The invention may
not be practicable upon the seas, where
a vast quantity of oil would manifestly
be required to still a dangerous storm,
but if tho claims of Shields, th! inven
tor, are genuine, it could be made very
useful in calming open roadsteads or
