With the federal courts on one side issuing
restraining orders to prevent the abandon

and a federal grand jury on another investi

may be a cause of grief. The pleasures of
railway management are no longer what they
used to be.
The following dispatch from Denver under
date of January 30th concerns a gentleman
well known throughout the valley: Soon after
six o’clock, Sunday evening, A. B. Smith, civil
engineer for the Lincoln Land Co. of Lincoln,
Neb., left his house and nothing has been
heard or seen of him since. He left the house
without money or overcoat, and his wife
thought he had simply gone walking. Foul
play is feared. The police are at work on the

The Nebraskan says that township organi
zation is costing Adams county from $20,coo
to $30,000 more than the cost would be under
the commissioner system. This is an exag
geration of several thousand, but there is no
room for doubt as to the additional expense.
Easter Sunday, this year, comes on the 25th
day of March, earlier than it has been before
for many years. In the year 1868 Easter Sun
day was on the 28th of March, and that was
the earliest for more than 50 years before. It
can come never earlier than March 24, and it I
has been thpt early once in 100 years. This is
an indication of an early spring, it is said.
The Nebraska State Pharmaceutical Asso
ciation will meet in Hastings, June 5, 6, 7 and
8. The druggists of the city met Sunday and
appointed committees of arrangements. There
will be about five hundred druggists present.
They will have a good many manufactures
on exhibition. Places of entertainment have
to be provided and halls for meetings secured.
We took a trip up to Danbury, last Tuesday,
and to say that we were surprised at the im
provements that have been made during the
past year would be putting it mildly. At
Lebanon a new Presbyterian church is almost
completed, and large, elegant dwellings are
either completed or under headway. Danbury,
too, seems to be enjoying a season of prosper
ity and ranks among the best shipping points
on the line.—Wilsonville Review.

$193.68. February 5th.
The Christian Endeavor people have
decided to establish a free soup house
in Kansas City. This is indeed a
Christian endeavor worth the accom
plishing. The winter is probably just
under good headway. There is plenty
of cold weather ahead and in cold
no charity is so practical for emergen
cies as a soup house. If a warm fire is
provided at which homeless meu may
keep warm instead of being forced to
lounge in the saloons, a double charity
is done. These soup houses cannot be
very expensive. They may be run on
donations, but they do more good
among the heathen at home than thous
ands of dollars sent to convert the
heathen abroad. Soup houses in the
winter and bath houses in the summer
are principal charities here at home that
Christians should not overlook in their
zeal for the Chinese and the African and
the “dwellers inMessopotamia,"
A fellow who couldn’t spare a dollar
and a half for his home newspaper a
year, sent fifty 2-cent stamps to the city
to find out “how to raise beets” and re
ceived a postal card reply ‘ ‘take hold of
the tops and pull’ ’
They had an addition to the family out
