YORK , having a population of 5,132 ,
has been formally declared by Governor
Dietrich a city of the second class. But
it is a first-class city , just the same !
THE most encouraging feature of the
discussions at the Canadian congress
was the preponderance of opinion that
tuberculosis was not hereditary. A
majority of the members agreed with
Sir William Kingston that man or
woman could pot transmit the germ of
llie disease to offspring. T"lie dictum
Will probably be combated by scores of
people who can recall cases which seem
to prove the inheritable quality beyond
a .doubt , but whether the opinion is
absolutely sound or not it is well calcu
lated to relieve much mental distress ,
and that is a blessing. The whole
doctrine of heredity as it has been
preached of late years has been
developed beyond all reason and has
read like a stern decree of fate to thous
ands who should never have fashed their
heads with the nonsense. Times Her
A STATESMAN in the New Jersey legis
lature has introduced a bill which gener
ously provides that any man who shall
hereafter be convicted of beating his
wife shall be taken to a public place by
the high sheriff of his borough and re
ceive upon his bare back whatever num
ber of stripes'the court may decree. This
is intended as a measure which will
effectually do away with a time-honored
New Jersey custom. Men have account
ed it not only a duty , but a joyful privi
lege , to lainbast their wives rather than
have any argument about it and some
have been so severe in the adminis
tration of wholesome correction as to ex
cite the sympathy of neighbors for the
woman in the case. And still there are
people so obtuse as to say that women
are not oppressed by the sterner sex.
The whipping post should be established
in Omaha as well as New Jersey. Bix.
THE Christian scientists who have be
come embroiled with the authorities over
the matter of vaccination will find that
Mrs. Eddy's latest expression on the
subject opens an easy way out of trouble
for them : "I have always believed , "
she says/'tbat Christian scientists should
be law-abiding. Rather than quarrel
over vaccination , I recommend that if
the law demand an individual to submit
to this process he obey thelaw , and then
appeal to the gospel to save him from
any bad results. Whatever changes be
long to this century or any epoch we
may safely submit to the providence of
God , to common justice , individual
rights and governmental usages. This
statement should be so interpreted as
toapply.ou the basis of Christian science ,
to the reporting of contagion to the
proper authorities when the law so re
quires. " This utterance will no doubt
be received with favor by the scientists
everywhere and acted upon in good
faith. It is manifestly the sane thing to
do. Lincoln Journal.

Mr. Perkins Steps Down.
Boston , Mass. . Feb. 20 C. E. Per
kins , president of the C. , B. & Q. rail
road , has resigned and Vice-Presideni
George B. Harris has been chosen presi
dent. Mr. Perkins remains as director
His resignation is due to a desire to b <
relieved of many cares of the office ol
president. It is stated that as a directoi
Mr. Perkins will practically have the
same influence and control of the policy
and affairs of the company as he has had
for many years. He will continue tc
live at Burlington.
Mr. Perkins entered the service of the
Burlington & Missouri River Railroad
company at Burlington , la.j about 1851 ,
beginning in the paymaster'soffice when
the road extended but a few miles west
of that city. He rose rapidly in the ser
vice and was in full local charge of the
property before its western terminus
reached the center of the state. He con
structed the road through Central and
Western Iowa to a connection with the
Union Pacific at Council Bluffs. He has
been the leading spirit in the develop
ment of the property ever since , until he
has had under his control .the entire
Burlington system , operating more than
7,000 miles. He has ranked high among
the pioneers who have accomplished
much for the great middle west. He is
known among railroad people and in the
business world as a man of much breadth
of mind and stability of character , and
has enjoyed the respect and confidence
of all. He has always resided at Bur
Mr. Harris is a Nebraskan , who was
called east years ago , and has been a
vice president of the road for some time.

Has the Marks of a Winner.
The auditorium project now has tht
marks of a sure-enough winner. The
mass meeting of citizens in the opern
house , Monday evening , was n most en
C. H. Meeker of the temporary com
mittee called the meeting to order ant
Mayor Barnett was called to preside
over the meeting , with L. W. Stayner o
the temporary committee as secretary
The case wns presented by Judge G
W. Norris , Rev. W. J. Turner , W. S
Morlan , J. F. Forbes of our city , ant
Rev. William Hardcastle of Cambridge
who was visiting in the city. The need *
of the city and the advantages of ar
auditorium were strongly urged and en
The temporary committee was made
a permanent feature of the movement tc
secure an auditorium. They are to con
tinue in the work of securing funds un
til all the money has been secured , when
another mass meeting of citizens will be
called and the matter of location and
kind of structure and other final mat
ters will be determined by the people.
It was the sense of the meeting that
the entire sum required to build the
auditorium should be secured by sub
scriptions and that the building should
be the property of the city , whose prop
er authorities should appoint a board of
trustees to manage the same.
It was also determined that in case
it became impossible to raise the entire
sum , the money subscribed should be
returned to the donors.
A special committee to secure funds
was named as follows : A. Campbell , W.
S. Morlan , A. Barnett.
A vote of thanks was tendered the
ladies of the different social and reading
clubs , for assistance offered ; to Joseph
Menard for use of the hall ; to McCook
Electric Co. for light ; and to Rev. Wil-
iam Hardcastle for his services as auc-
It was the purpose of the temporary
committee to auctioneer off twenty-five
special numbered buttons , but after
Mayor Barnett had secured No. 1 for
$55 , the scheme met with considerable
opposition , and was discontinued , per-
laps through a misapprehension or mis
understanding of the matter. The mater -
; er of securing subscriptions was then
aken up directly and the following sub-
criptions were taken in the hall :

The above sum , with the money se
cured from the sale of No. 1 button
makes the total secured at the meeting ,
The matter has aroused no little en
thusiasm among all citizens of McCook ,
and it is considered that the chances of
raising the $7,000 necessary for the pro
posed building are growing stronger as
the project becomes better known.

"It is a woman's privilege to be
courted , " writes Margaret E. Sangster
in the February Ladies' Home Journal.
"Therefore the man sends the valentine ,
not the girl. Thoughtless and silly girls
sometimes overlook this fact that they
are to be sought and never do the seek
ing , and an old observer sees with pain
that they employ little arts to attract
the other sex ; that , save the mark , they
behave , here and there , as if everything
they could do should be done to gain
the approving notice of the opposite ser
This creates a false position and is al
ways cheapening to a girl , not only in
the eyes of others , but also in time when
the awakening comes , it is degrading to
her self respect. "

SUCCESS IN FICTION.
The Best TVrlter * Are Those TVIio Re
gard It as Their -Chief Mission.
Mr. James Bryce , who has achieved
fame as an essayist on economic prob
lems and as a political analyist , con
templates devoting his pen to fiction ,
says a writer in the St. Louis Republic.
It Is not stated whether his motive is
amusement or profit. Perhaps it is a
mixture of both. If he achieves pop
ular applause , he will disclose a ver
satility unsuspected by those who have
perused his efforts along the more
serious lines of literature. It appears
that nearly all literary men at some
time in their lives have been attracted
toward the task of making novels.
The tuneful and witty Dr. Holmes
yielded to the temptation , and Lowell
was credited with a strong hankering.
The erudite and didactic George Will
iam Curtis wrote one novel , and
showed the possession of a cons''ien-
tious regard for the reading public i > i
not repeating the offense. BayarJ
Taylor also invaded the field with
much promise of success , but wisely
concluded that the novelists' vocation
did not fit his talents. There have
been several noted writers of English
who might have proved shining suc
cesses as novelists. Among them
might be classed the brilliant and
meteoric Macaulay , whose thrilling
prose and inspiring verse indicate the
possession of those qualities of narra
tion and imagination which are per
haps the most effective weapons in the
armory of the novel writer. Yet ,
Macaulay's luster ag a historian was
BO great that he might have dimmed
It by essaying fiction. Froude , who
was a master of prose , failed in the do ,
main of novel writing. The genera
consensus of critics seems to be that
while the novelist's faculty Is not al
together denied to men great In othei
departments of literature , its best re
wards come to those who feel it to bt
tneir chief mission.
"Two tittle Snobs. "
Titles seem not to make men largr
of stature or in any way distinguish
able in appearance from ordinary men
\n amusing example .of this lack of
visible nobility is cited by an English
exchange. The Duke of Argyll was
once traveling in a. railway carriage
with the Duke of Northumberland. At
one of the stations a little commercia'
drummer entered. The three chattel
amillarly until the train stopped at
Alnwick Junction. Here the Duke of
Northumberland went out and war
met by a train of flunkeys and serv
ants. "That must be some great swell , "
emarked the drummer to his unknown
companion. "Yes , " said the Duke o.
Argyll , "he is the Duke of Northumber-
and. " "Bless me ! " exclaimed tht
drummer. "And to think he shoulc
lave been so affable to two little snobs
Ike us ! "
