A GENEROUS OFFER
The Lincoln Gas and Electric Light
company has made a generous offer
to the wives of the union men of the
city, and doubtless they will take full
advantage of It. Miss Rose Vawter,
and expert teacher of domestic science,
has been engaged by the company for
a series of cooking demonstrations, and
the management offers a special course,
free of charge, to the wives of union
ists provided enough of them take an
interest in the matter. It is not es
sential that the women be users of
gas, at this tim5. The company, if
enough of the women signify their de
sire to take the course, will arrange
the time to 3uit their convenience. The
Wageworker knevs something about
the work the Gas company is doing
along this line and it earnestly requests
the women to take advantage of the
offer. The editor will be glad to hear
from the women in' regard to the mat
ter. SPECIAL MEETING
Typographical ITnion No. 209 will
have a special meeting Sunday after
noon, February 26. The business call

utmost importance to the union and a'

HATS, CAPS, SHOES,
IS said that absence conquers love!
But, oh! believe it not;
I've tried, alas! its powers to prove,
But thou art not forgot.
Lady, though fate has bid us part,
Yet still thou art as dear,
As fixed in this 'devoted heart, :
As when I clasped thee here.
I plunge into the busy crowd.
And smile to hear thy name;
And yet,, as if I thought aloud,
They know me still the same;
And when the wine-cup passes round,
I toast some' other fair
But when I ask my heart the sound,
Thy name is echoed there.
And when some other name I learn,
And try to- whisper love.
Still will my heart to thee return,
Like the returning dove.
In vain! I never can forget.
And would not be forgot;
For I must bear the same regret,
Whate'er may be my lot.
E'en as the- wounded bird will seek
Its favorite bower to die,
So, lady! I would hear thee speak,
And yield my parting sigh.
'Tis said that absence conquers Jove!
But, oh! believe it not;
I've tried, alas! its power to prove,
But thou art not forgot.
MEMORIAL OF GREAT BATTLE
Monument Being Erected to Commem
orate Napoleon's Defeat.
One of the greatest battles in his
tory occurred on Oct. 18, 1813, at Leip
sic, when Napoleon was defeated by
the allied European armies. During
the past few years funds have been
collected all over the German father
land in order to provide for means for
the erection of an immense monument
in commemoration of this great bat
tle, which laid the foundation for a
united German nation.
This gigantic monument, which will
be the greatest in the world, is now
under construction, and it will be fin
ished on the day of the one hundredth
anniversary of the, great battle, Oct.
Work on the monument was started
during the spring of 1900. The base
covers no less than 6,300 square me
ters, while the extreme height, when
finished, will be 362 feet. The monu
ment is built on a hill in the neigh
borhood of. the city of Leipsic, which
rises to an altitude of about 175 feet
above the ground level of the city,
and therefore i will be visible from a
great distance. The steps leading to
the first terrace are of German gran
ite; a relief 210 feet in length and
fitty-two feet high, adorns the front of
the structure. . When compreted the
main figure of the monument will show
the Archangel Michael, the patron
saint of the Germans, standing on a
gigantic war chariot; around lie the ;
bodies of the soldiers who fought the
battle of Leipsic. , In gothic letter
the relief bears' the inscription, "G9tt
Mitt Uns" (God with us). The mon
ument will cost several million aiarks, i
the entire amount having be&n already
collected. Prof. Bruno Schmitz, a
famous architect &i sculptor, is in
charge of the work.
One of the Old Guard.
When the Empress Eugenie arrived
on Tuesday night from the Hotel Con
tinental ana stepped from the electric
coupe which had been sent to the sta
tion to meet her, a tall and soldierly
old man of some seventy years stood
with bared head and saluted in mili
In. the brilliant days of the second
empire the old soldier formed part of
the empress' bodyguard, and it is said
that (he conceived a strong platonic '
love for his sovereign, which made
him the butt of his comrades.
The empress frequently visits the
city over which she once reigned so
brilliantly, but even the newspapers
hardly notice her comings and goings.
The old soldier, however, never fails
in his fidelity, and stands in one of
the corridors through which the em
press is bound to pass, so that he may
salute his former sovereign as she
passes at the Hotel Continental.' He
invariably brings a magnificent bou
quet of violets or 'roses, which are
placed in the empress' drawing room.

I BEETHOVEN AN ECCENTRIC MAN.
Great Musician Awkward and Un
- kempt in Appearance. i
Eccentric and unconventional Bee
thoven certainly was in some respects,'
to judge from descriptions quoted by .
D. G. Mason in an article in the Out;
look: . i ' .
His unconventionally appears in all
his actions and opinions, from the
most' trivial to the most momentous,
says the writer. Take, for instance,
to begin, with, the subject of persoBal
appearance, dress . and demeanor..
What an altogether unusual man it
was that Carl Czercy, as a boy of ten,
hi 1801, was taken to visit! ;
."We mounted," says Czerny, "five 1
or six stories high to , Beethoven's
apartment and were announced by a
rather dirty-looking servant. . - In a
very desolate roomj with papers and
articles of dress strewn- in' all "direc
tions, bare walls, a few chests, hardly .
a chair except the rickety one stands
ing by the piano, there was a party of
six or eight people.
"Beethoven was dressed in a jacket . .
and trousers of long, dark goat's" hair,
which at once reminded me "of the 1
description of Robinson Crusoe I had'
been reading. He had a shock of jet
black hair (cut a la Titus) standing
straight upright. A beard of several
days' growth made his naturally dark
face still blacker. I noticed also, with '
a child's quick observation, ' that ' he
had cotton wool,' which seemed to
have been dipped in some yellow fluid,- ,
in both ears. His hands were covered
with' hair and the finger very broad,
especially on the tips." v--
The oddity ' in dress obsePv
Czerny was habitual with Beethoven.
"In the summer of 1813," says Behind
ler, "he had neither a decent coat nor
a whole shirt," his habit of dabbling
his hands in water until he was thor
oughly . wet, while following out a
musical . thought, " Cannot have im
proved his clothes. Nor did his car
riage set them off; he was extremely
awkward with his body could not
dance in time and generally cut himj
self when he shaved, which,, however,
he did infrequently.
Women Not Alone in Curiosity. -
It is related that ! the Duchess of
Westminster put into her guest ch&m'
ber a curious Swiss clock to which '
was attached a printed notice, "Please
do not touch." When M. Joly,. the
Canadian Liberal,' visited her grace,,
he ventured U inquire the reason for
the prohibition. ' " "You. are the twen1
tieth man that has' asked that ques
tion," replied the lady, ' gleefully.
"Women, you know, are supposed &
be proverbially curious, and I put that
placard on the clock to test the same,
weakness in men, and I am nappy to
say I find them not a whit less curions
than the women. I keep a list of all
the gentlemen who have asked me
the question you have just put, and
there has been only one exception
apong all my guests who have occu
pied the room; that was Mr. Fawcett,
the late postmaster, general, and - be
poor man, was blind."
A Homely Criticism.'
"Uncle Joe Cannon is sometime too
homely and 1 direct and harsh la hi
comments," said a young journalist
"I was not at all pleased with the re
mark he made to me while I wa
speaking at the X banquet.
"Of course, I am not an experienced,
speaker. I can't rattle off words like
the veterans of the Senate and House.
I admit that I began my address in a
faltering way. I began, if I remember:
" 'Gentlemen, my opinion is that the
generality of 'mankind in general is
disposed to take advantage of the gen
erailty of ' . '
"Here Uncle Joe interrupted me. .'
" 'Sit down, son,' he said. 'You are
coming out of the same hole you wen I
in at. " .
