The remarks of the Chicago sailoi
who arose in meeting Sunday and de
nounced the parson for his kid gloved
sympathy , while perhaps profane , were
( probably pertinent. The parson was
advocating "Bethels" for the lake
Bailers who , he said , in the absence of
the beneficent institutions , inhabited
dives and saloons and low lodging
houses. The sailor's side of the case
is that more wages not "Bethels" are
needed by the toilers of the sea. From
a purely non-sectarian , non-partisan
point of view there seems to be much
reason in the seaman's logic. The
.average man , if he had more money ,
ould secures better accommodations
'tlian are offered by the fourth grade
lodging house. There is a great deal
of idle and innocuous sympathy wasted
on working men and women by the
parsons and hysterical people in the
upper walks of life. This sympathy is
largely given as penance , as a sort of
balm lor a guilty conscience. What
th-e working man needs is more wages
and less sympathy. If the people who
build "Bethels" would be just in their
dealings with those directly under them
( lie labor problem would be nearer a
solution than it is.
Before , going into the maelstrom of
politics , and casting your first vote ,
thereby taking a hand in the govern
ment , Horatio , it might be well for you
to commit to memory the fact that a
man may be a democrat , and still have
no capital crimes charged against him ;
fee may be a prohibitionist and still be
innocent of the offence of having rob
bed his grandmother or chloroformed his
aunt ; he may be a wheel horse of the
people's party and not be guilty of hav
ing stolen a horse. And likewise a man
may be a republican and still be fit to
Associate with the best people and oc
cupy a pew in a church. You can't
afford to condemn a man , Horatio , be
cause his political views differ from
yours ; there isn't a party that hasn't
among its supporters scores of abler
and better and more conscientious men
than you can ever hope to be. Its all
right to blaze away and try to prove
that another man's theories are wrong ,
-but if you attempt to show that the
man is a rascal because he maintains
those theories , you are not only doing
Jiitn a great evil , but you are running a
great risk of having your face pounded
into an unrecognizable mass. Take
things comfortably , Horatio , trust in
< Jed and keep your powder dry. And
remember above all things that a man
who saws wood has more friends than
the one that airs his voice on the house
tops continually. WALT MASON.

Columbus Day Thoughts.
State Superintendent Gundy is
everything in his power to further the
success of the Columbus day celebration.
He has bent samples of the official pro
gramme to school officers and teachers ,
together with the following circular let
To School Officers , Teachers and Pat
rons of the Public and Private Schools
of Nebraska : In consonance with a joint
resolution of the senate and house of
representatives of the United States
and with proclamations issued by the
president of the United States and gov
ernor of Nebraska , this department rec
ommends to all officers , teachers and
patrons of the schools of the state of
NcDraska that the children , the patrons
and friunds of education and American
patriotism be invited to join in a school

the discovery of America to be held on

manner set forth in the circular issued

> y the department of superintendent of
he national educational association of
Brooklyn , February 17 , 18 2.
This is the first attempt to make the
schools of the entire country the centres
of local demonstrations all over thcUni-
The event to be celebrated is grandly
itted to inspire a noble and an intelli
gent patriotism , and the public school ,
he outgrowth of the American civiliza
tion , may properly claim the right to
lead this jubilee.
While the public school is the pro
duct of the American spirit , the perpetu
ity and the character of our institutions
depend largely upon the training which
the schools of the siate give to the citi
zens of the state , and so it is peculiarly
fitting that in this festival the schools
shall lead : so let the schools lead and let
all the people follow.
The boys and girls may be led to feel
that in this celebration they are par
takers in the opening ceremonies of the
Columbian exposition in progress at the
same time in the city of Chicago.
I trust that every effort will be made
in every community in every school
district in the state to stir up the people
ple to a realization of the far reaching
results of the events to be commemor
ated on that day , and that the local
press , so ready at all times to do its
part in arousing and intensifying every
proper sentiment , may be everywhere
I am confident that those in charge
of the educational interests of the state
will be ready to respond to this call as

A Word About E. HI. Woods.
Jno. J. Lamborn : My Dear Sir : I
understand that my old comrade , E. M.
Woods , has been nominated by the re
publicans of Red Willow county for
the legislature. I hope your county will
do itself and Mr. Woods the honor to
elect him. I have known Mr. Woods
for thirty years or more. He was one
of our most enterprising and reliable
farmers , and was a soldier who saw
hard service for three years in the late
war. He was dangerously wounded at
Poison Springs , Arkansas , by a shell
"rom Shelby's battery. We left him in
he hospital at Camden , where he
fell into the hands of the enemy and
had all of the varied experience that
falls to a prisoner of war. The people
of Nebraska can hardly realize how
much their interests abroad are affected
by the constant calamity complaints
that are set un bv men who seek office
by preaching the gospel of discontent.
Comrade Woods has always been one
of those men who work for prosperity ,
instead of exhausting themselves in
complaint against all existing things.
Give him my kind regards and best
wishes when you see him.
Yours Truly ,
JOHN F. LACY.
