A HOT BATH can be had in 20 minutes at any time of the
day or night without building a fixe. Intelligent house
wives all over the country are waking up to the fact that
it is cheaper, quicker, cleaner, easier better in every possible
way to cook with GAS than with any other fuel. With the
vast improvement in gas ranges of late years, and the present
low prices of gas in Lincoln, it is no longer economical to use any
but a GAS range. A dinner for ten persons can be cooked on a
GAS RANGE at, a cost of SEVEN CENTS. An ordinary
breakfast can be cooked for about TWO CENTS. A GAS
RANGE is cheaper than any other range. It costs less to 'buy,"
costs less to operate, costs less to maintain. A GAS RANGE
saves TIME, WORRY, MONEY and WORK.

The Spring brings many a newthing, both in material anJ
design. The colors, too, come in for their share of considera
tion. One of the novelties is a new coat model. The coat is a
trifle longer than last season. Broad collar and lapels, cut in
lightly to the figure, and has French pressed side seams with
1 7-inch vent in center of back, making this one of the snappy
coats of the season's creation. Greys will have the call, with
blues and browns a close second, although many fancy mixtures
in neat and bright effects are shown.

' A New Manager
E. A. Julian, who has been repre
senting the Western Newspaper Union
on the road for several years, with
headquarters in Chicago, has been
made manager of the Lincoln branch.
Mr. Julian is an old newspaper man
and one of the most genial gentlemen
imaginable. His ability to manage the
large affairs of the Lincoln branch is
conceded by all who know him, and
the country newspaper men will find
him a pleasant and agreeable man to
do business with. He has served his
time on a country paper, and also
time as a daily newspaper man, and
he knows the newspaper game both
ways from the middle.

We find some men with union cards
In their pockets who would .vote
against an assessment of 5 cents if
they thought the same would save
some struggling local from destruc

give to the local, either in dues or
assessments is spent by the interna

or drinking champagne but they never
kick about what they "thrown away'

from which they get no benefit in

he's distasteful unto you
But you haven't nerve enough to
speak it out.
So whene'er you hear him mentioned
as a fellow good and true.
You only wink your eye, expressing

eyes are narrow slits,
But never say a word from that
But your actions tell your story, and
his name is smashed to bits,
And you've done the dirty business
that's a cinch.
You envy Mrs. Jones a bit, and know
no reason why;
But never stop to give her half a
You merely hate the woman, though
you smile on passing by
And curl your lips when taking back
You hear her kindly mentioned and
you toss your head and smile.
But wouldn't dare a word in tightest

and in just a little while
You have done the dirty business

It isn't always what you say you

That you are planning such big

That you grumble at the wrongs
that abound on all sides and fail to
make any effort at righting them.

"Do you not believe that senators
should be elected by the people?" we
asked of Senator Graball.
"I have no objections," replied the
senator after a judicial pause. "How
ever, I see nothing objectionable to
the present system of selecting the
proper man for the people to elect."
"It is a sin to steal a pin,"
To steal a loaf is crime.
To steal a beef makes you a thief
And sets you doing time.
But steal some laws and get your paws

And take his wealth by crook and
And you're a man of note.
Indeed, that is your greatest chance
To be called "captain of finance."
"It is not true that I receive rebates
from the railroads," indignantly cried
the great manufacturer and refiner.
"But I can manufacture and refine
as cheaply as you, and yet you under
sell me and make a profit," com
plained the small manufacturer.
"I reiterate that rebates have noth
ing to do with it," - insisted the mag
nate. After the complainant had retired
the magnate remarked sotto voice:
"Of course, the fact that I own most
of the railroads has nothing to do with
the case." -
Smiling a "knowing smile the mag
nate proceeded to add to his reputa
tion for philanthropy by drawing an
other check. . ,
A Little Fable

. builded a beautiful office buMding
j twenty stories high, fitting up, the
rooms with great care, supplying safe
ty vaults, fire escapes, tiled floors and
ornamental lighting fixtures. Then
he advertised for tenants.
"But you have provided no eleva
tor," said the first applicant, "and you
have no stairway."
"Quite true," said the owner. "But
you will observe I have left several
shafts in which elevators may be run."
"But what is the good of that with
out the elevators?" queried the applicant.
"O, that's all right," said the own
er. "As soon as I get a few tenants
I will give some man or corporation a
franchise to operate an elevator, leav
ing him free to make all he can out of
With a scornful laugh the applicant
turned away and would have no more
dealings with the owner of the beau
tiful building. ' '
Moral:' The people are rapidly grasp
ing it. What is the difference between
an elevator that runs perpendicularly
in a building, and an "elevator" that
runs laterally through the streets? .

"That fellow, Hardhedde, is a queer
sort of duffer."
