EAST SIDE MAIN AVENUE - -
AN English lord awaited anxiously
a long expected event in his family.
When the result was announced-to him
he exclaimed : "A girl ! Bless me ! I
thought my wife was full } ' informed of
my wishes in this respect. "
" 0 YES , " wrote a , Bostonian who be
lieves that his own home is the coolest
spot on earth in midsummer , "it is all
very well for you to ask me to come
down to your famous hotel for rest and
change. I tried it once ; the porter got
all the change and the landlord took
the rest. "
A CORRESPONDENT asks if it would
not be more in keeping with the virtue
and gentleness of woman if she were to
minister to the wants of the fatherless
children , made such by anarchists , in
stead of smiling upon them in the court
room and decking their button-holes
with bouquets ? The real facts are ,
however , that such women as a rule
do not take kindly to children when
pug dogs are around to be nursed and
petted and caressed. They are by na
ture allotted to the class of the silly
simpleton sisterhood , and they will nev
er arise to the dignity of true woman
hood. Inter Ocean.
DON'T attempt to cheat an editor out
of a year's subscription of his paper , or
any sum. Cheat the minister , cheat the
lawyer , cheat the butcher anybody
but if you have any regard for your
future consequences , don't fool vith the
printer. He will get evon with you and
more too. You will be put up for office
some time , or want some public favor
for yourself or some of your friends , and
just when your luck is a thing of beauty
and a joy forever , the printer will open
up on you and knock your air castles
into a cocked hat at the first blow.
"MAMIE , " said a grammar school girl
to a member of the graduating class ,
'have you finished your essay ? " "Br
no , " said Mamie , "but I have commenc
ed it , and I wish the awful thing was in
Halifax. " "What's the subject ? " "The
Curse of Slang. " "Gracious ! Isn't
that a difficulty subject to write up ? "
"Difficult ? Well , I should giggle. I'll
have to hump myself to get it finisned
in time for the'commencment , and I've
a good notion to let it slide. I might
shut up the professor's optic by plead
ing illness , but I'm not that sort of a
hairpin. But come , waltz up into my
room and look at my stunning graduat
ing harness. It'll paralyzeyou. " Nor-
PROHIBITION may not prohibit. Ob
serve we say MAY NOT. It may be all
wrong as the whisky element avers with
emphasis so positive. In fact , it may
not be anything that its most earnest
advocates and supporters claim for it ,
and it may be everything that its ene
mies assert against it. But king alcohol
trembles on his throne at the name's
mention. It is growing. Men and wo
men of wealth , heart and mind are flock
ing to its standard. Their efforts never
fail , Never ! And just so sure as the
rain falls upon the just and the unjust
alike will prohibition succeed eventually.
Probably not so thoroughly as some
fondly hope , but to an extent that will
prove of infinite blessedness to the race.
Even so , come quickly.

SINCE Capt. Winterstein's name has

THE Republican Convention for the
third congressional district has been
called for October 1 , with Fremont as
place of meeting. The basis of repre
sentation is the vote for regent of the

THE fight is still on between Con

the autocrat of the land department ,
and his Man-Friday Congressman Cobb.
Laird .has successfully shown that
Sparks is making a malignant and un
justifiable war upon settlers on the pub
lic lands in Nebraska and Kansas , and
entirely ignoring land frauds in the
south to which his attention has been
called repeatedly. Laird is having the
best of it in the controversy thus far ,
and in his own district is supported al
most to a man by republicansdemocrats
and anti-monopolists alike. Beatrice
