est self-encomiast in the state , to the
writer of the Gazette-Journal slop-
over. Our contemporaries in the
Valley ought , as a matter of self-
preservation , to withhold their "meed
of praise" until the Gr.-J. regains its
wonted composure. "Modesty is to
merit as shades to figures in a picture ;
giving it strength and beauty. "
"No , " said a fond mother , speaking
proudly of her 25-year-old daughter ,
"Mary isn't old enough to marry yet.
She cries whenever anyone scolds
her , and until she becomes hardened
enough to talk back vigorously , she
isn't fit for a wife. ' '
SAKAII BERNHARDT has just cowhided -

written a biography of the great ac
tress which did not please her. Sarah

such as hers ought to be post mortem.
CIVILIZATION" is advancing with
powerful strides. Of more value to
the human race than the telephone is
the recent sentencing to hang of a
New York policeman for clubbing an
inoffensive man to death.
FRANKLIN says that "he that takes' '
a wife takes care. " - "Which probably J .
explains in a measure why there are' ,
so many "baches. " They are too |
distressingly eareful already.

ANOTHER terrible accident occur
red at Nebraska City , Saturday after
noon , resulting in the death of anoth
er 01 our citizens , Harvey S. Bundy.
The Nebraska City Press contains
the proceedings of the inquest held
on his body , from which we copy the j j
testimony of the conductor , C. "W. j
Patterson , who said : "The engineer
had run the engine out passed the
switch and was backing in to couple J
on to the freight going west. "Harve1
as he was generally calledhad thrown
the switch and given the signal to
"back up. " "When I was standing on
the depot platform I saw him "jump
upon the brake beam of the tender
to the engine and grab at the chain
that holds the coupling pin. He
missed his hold and fell. T signalled
the engineer to stop his engine , which
he did , but too late to save "Harve. "
The tender passed entirely over his
.body , and when I reached him he WAS
.dead. " Gazette-Journal.
WORK in the B. & M. shops at
Plattsmouth has increased to such an
extent that the nine hour system has

departments. The shops Jiave all been

hours will be put in each day. .

IN a prayer meeting at Westfield ,
Mass. , a brother arose and said : "I
want to hear sung that beautiful
hymn , 'Split Doors. ' " A ripple of
laughter was suppressed by a sister
who struck up "Gates Ajar. " "That's
it ! that's itJ the brother shouted , as
he sat down to enjoy the melody.
THE moon was shining brightly.
He slid over the fence and sneaked
up to her window he sangin a plain
tive voice , to the accompaniament of
the guitar : "The last rose of summer
is fading .away , " and the old man
stuck his head out of the window and
said : "Never mind young man , just
throw your coat over it and I'll take
it in in the morning. "
OSCAR WILDE , the English dude ,

In a recent lecture on America , he

ONE of Ella Wheekr's "Poems of
Passion" begins : "She touches my
cheek , and I quiver I tremble wit3i
exquisite pain ; she sighs like an
overcharged river , my blood rushes
on through my veins ; she smiles
and in. jaad-.tiger fashion , as a she
tiger fondles her own , I olasp her with
fierceness and jassion , and kiss her
with shudder and groan. " Ella may
call this.a poem of passion , but here
we call it drunk and disorderly.
