The Call Leads the Procession.
We call the attention of our readers
to the advertisement of The Call in
another column. Since its reduction
in price The Call is the cheapest
daily in Nebraska, and its spicy and
independent policy is too well known
to need comment from us. In reduc
ing the price of The Call so as to put
it within the reach of everybody, the
management have placed themselves a
decided step in advance of all other
publishers in the state. This is an era
of popular prices for the newspaper,
and The Call is, as usual, at the head
of the procession.

Juvenile Criminals.
A problem for those who are seek
ing the best means of dealing with
children of criminal tendencies is found
in the ease of Denver’s 11-year-old
boy who has just been convicted of
murder. He killed a man for the
possession of his watch, and had no
other excuse for the deed than that he
wanted his watch. In the state of
New York, not long since, a young lad
murdered his grandfather in cold blood
and with the utmost deliberation, lying
in wait for him in the dark with a
pistnl. His excuse was that his grand
father had scolded him. Is it possible
to reform such children? There are
people who believe that it is.

An Awful Warning.
The petrified man, recently on exhibi
tion in McCook, is said to have broken
a leg in trying to get away from an edi
tor. It seems that he had cheated a
newspaper man out of a large subscrip
tion bill and then went west and died of
remorse. Hence his sensitiveness at the
sight of one of the craft. If all who
beat the newspapers should die of re
morse and petrify the country would be
better off.

That exhibit in The Tribune in re
gard to the annual shrinking of values
about assessing time was to the point
and contained a mint of truth. It
seems that our taxing system all over
the union is a rather bungling affair.
For instance Cook Co., the home of
Chicago, had so little silver plate at a
recent assessment as to fairly stattle
themselves. We sometimes think Mr.
Editor that this office might more prop
erly be filled by appointment for a term
of years. In fact one county treasurer
recently told us the only remedy was in
a complete change of procedure and a
change of laws modeled upon the best
systems in praotrice in some few states
of our union; also that property could
not be reached unless an assessor insist
ed on seeing every thing assessable in
the most arbitrary manner and in that
case he would have no need to consider
re-e'eetion. We would like more space
on this subject some future time. Un
doubtedly this much will do for the pres
ent. Ralph.

President Harrison’s proclamation call*
tag an extra session of the senate is tae
nsual course pursued at the outgoing of
each administration, to enable the senate
to "advise and consent” to the cabinet
selected by the incoming president. It is
also customary at the same session to (
send in the names of ministers selected
for the most important foreign posts and
Other leading offices at home. President
Cleveland’s proclamation, issued under
limilar conditions four years ago. was j
dated Feb. 26.
There was some talk in connection
with the issuing of the proclamation
about the question whether a president
had ever convened congresses as a whole
in special session by proclamation issued
just previous to his retirement from
office. An examination of the records
shows that this was never done. The
earliest date at which a new congress
ever assembled after the inauguration of
a president was May 16. 1797, when
President Jefferson called the two houses
together to consider the situation caused
by the suspension of diplomatic relations
with France. In 1841 President William
Henry Harrison convened congress iu
special session on May 81, by proclama
tion issued March 17, but before the as
sembling of the body he had died and
Mr. Tyler was in the chair.
The occasion for this special session
was the condition of finances and reve
nue. which demanded attention. Since
1841 the congress has been called in spe
cial session four times only. In 1866. be
cause of the failure to pass the army ap
propriation bill; in 1801, because of the
war, in 1877, because of the failure to
pass the legislative and executive appro
priation bills; in 1879. because of a fight
over the appropriation for United States
marshals in the same bill.—Washington
A Humiliating Lesson.
An amusing little incident occurred at
a fashionable wedding the other day,
where many of the gifts presented to the
bride were given from a Rense of duty.
One woman guest, who determined to
save her money and credit at the same
time, took a broken earring to Tiffany’s
and ordered the little stone set as a scarf
pin for the groom. As she sagely re
marked, ‘It does me no good, and com
ing from such a famous establishment
they are sure to prize it and think I paid
a lot of money.”
When the package was returned from
the shop, the wedding guest failed to ex
amine her proposed present and merely
dispatched it with her card and compli
ments. Imagine her disgust when stroll
ing through the rooms where the bridal
gifts were displayed to find a dozen peo
ple standing about her offering, and ev
ery face stretched into a wide smile of
amusement. For an instant she hesi
tated. then pressed forward, and lo!
there was the precious white satin paper
box. bearing the prized name, it is true,
but. alas! below. “From repairing de
partm««*." and. even worse than all,
resting on the blue cotton beside the pin
was an old, broken bit of earring re
turned by the conscientious firm. There
is one woman who now declares that
honesty is the best policy.—New York
Strange News From ISoston.
There is a current newspaper story
about an Ohio cow that gives black
milk. It is an unlikely story on its face,
hut not so inherently impossible as the
one from the east that alleges a desire on
the part of the people of Boston to run
electric street cars across their common.
It is mnch easier to believe that an Ohio
cow would give black milk, or even rum
punch, than that Boston should seriously
meditate allowing her common and the
children there®] to be run over by the
Such a proposition is not what we have
a right to expect of Boston. Of Chicago
cr Seattle or Duluth or some other town
that is in a desperate hurry it might be
credible, because those towns have to
hurry or else they get passed by. But
with Boston it is different, or at least it
ought to be. No rival threatens to pass
her on her road. 1 cannot think of any
reason why her citizens should be in
such driving haste that the street cars
may not continue to skirt the common
instead of crossing it.—Harper’s Weekly.
A Scene of Horror at a Funeral.
A terrible accident occurred at the fu
neral of A. Scriber at Lamson’s. The
service was being held at J acob Scriber’s
residence, when the floor of the dwelling
suddenly gave way, and the coffin and
the people were precipitated into the cel
lar The cries of the injured and the
shrieks of nervous women, together with
the presence of the dead, combined in
creating a scene of horror that those who
witnessed will never forget. To add to
the horror, a stove filled with burning
coals fell and burst among the victims,
wbo were pinned down in the debris.
Fortunately no one was killed, nor, it is
hoped, fatally injured.—Cor. Utica (N.
Y.) Herald and Gazette.
An Oak Tree In Full Leaf In Winter.
In the Goyt valley, about two miles
from Whaley bridge, there is an old oak
tree which has not yet lost last year’s
leaves. Every twig and branch is still
densely covered, comparatively very few
having fallen since the summer. Even
the late intense frost does not seem to
have affected them or lessened them in
the least. They are of course quite brown
and crisp, but the stalks are yet quite
elastic and pliable and adhere very tena
ciously to the stems. It requires a good
pull to detach them. The tree presents
a remarkable appearance, which is
heightened by contrast with those sur
rounding it, all bare and leafless.—Lon
don Tit-Bits.
Peace In Europe.
Europe seems to be more peacefully dis
posed at this time than it has been at
some other times not far in the past.
The nations over there had better not
begin fighting. It would be dangerous
for them to do so. All the rulers declare
that they are anxious for the mainte
nance of peace; they will show sound
sense by maintaining it—New York
