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. We are printing the date to which each subscriber has paid his subscrip tion to The Tribune along with the address. Watch the date and you will know if you are in arrears.

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. Had to be Quick. “Ephum!” “Yethum!’1 “Com a-humpin’ heah to ye’ mammy. Wash dat face an’ take de curry comb an’ git dem kinks out’n yo ha’r.

Now you jes’ git a move on yo’ sef an’ don’t ston on de road to play wid any white trash.’’ He got. 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. WANTED. Agents to sell our choice and hardy Nursery Stock.

N< ttleton was transacting bus iness hereabouts, Monday. A little more spring like at this writing and seeding is again resumed. Neighbor Hoyt has added a new press drill to bis list of farming utensils We notice the Palmer farm has changed bands again; this is a fine piece, and well improved. Mr. Simeon Love has moved on to his place and will improve as fast as the season will permit. Lewis Fauss has purchased a very ingenious grinder for grinding feed and also can be arranged for reasonable fine work for house use. Cora Putoher is about once more well and hearty. We understand that this was not a case of diphtheria but more the nature of quinsy. A Mr. Springer of Thayer county spent a day or two with C. S. Ferris’ family. Mr. S. will locate soon but is undecided as to the exact location. Supt. Bayston called on our school recently. Mr. Bayston as we all know is an old time teacher and has been in educational work so long that his very presence is cheering to all. 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. Removal! Removal!

Th« Extra Beetiou ol Me heuete. 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 Letter. 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 Letter. 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 cars. 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 Sun.
