Soft words may turn away wrath , but

The Gazette-Journal seems to be in

Mrs. Grant has just received from

as additional profits on the sale of
"General Grant's Memoirs. " She has
thus received to date a total of $394 , -

Grant's book is unprecedented in the
history of literature.
The Holdrege Democrat is defunct.
A chattel mortgage and an editor in

were too strong a combination for its
tender build. Friend King makes a

The bucolic press of the Republican
Valley properly objects to unjust dis
crimination as against them and in favor

the larger cities of Nebraska. We hope

Colonel Yule , in his Anglo-Indian
Glossary , says that"Dont care a damm"
comes from the Hindostan. In that
country the "damri" was originally a
copper coin of very small denomination.
Damri became the common expression
for the infinitesimal in coin and a Briton
in India often says , "I won't give a
damri" without understanding what a
The New Orleans Times-Democrat
makes the following observation apro
pos of the phenomenal building activity
of the time :
"There is now little doubt that 1SS7 will
be the biggest building year that this country
has ever known in railroads , factories and
other houses. It is now estimated that 21 , -
000 miles of new and 19,000 miles of old rail
way track will be laid this year thus afford
ing the iron furnaces and steel rolling and
rail mills an abundance of work. The cost
of these railroads is estimated at 5o33,00C , -
000 for the new and 5100,000,000 for the old
roads or say $0o0,000,000 of capital needed
for the railroads alone. "
The consumption of distilled spirits
in the United States has increased from
40,000,000 gallons in 1S40 to 72,000 , -
000 gallons in 1886. In the interval
the consumption of wine has run up
from 448,000 gallons to 22,000,000
gallons , and that of malt liquors from
28,000,000 gallons to 642,000,000.
Everybody in the country , therefore ,
male and female , child and man , drinks
ten gallons of stuff a year ; the Germans
drink about twenty-five gallons , the
English over thirty-four gallons , and
the Freneh about thirty-eisht gallons.
The printing press has made presi
dents , killed poets , furnished bustles
for beauties and polished genius with
criticism. It has made worlds get up
at roll-call every morning , given the
pulpit lungs of iron and a voice of
steam. It has set the-price of a bush
el of wheat , and made the country
postoffice the glimmering goal of the
rural scribe. It has curtailed the pow
er of kings , graced the pantry shelves
and bursted ; it has converted bankers
into paupers and made lawyers of col
lege presidents ; it has educated the
homeless and robbed the philosopher
of his reason. It smiles and kicks
and cries and dies , but it can't be run to
suit everybody , and the editor is a fool
who tries. So says a contemporary.
