Omaha, Neb., Doc. 15, 187'J.
My Inst cointnttnicaliou which was
published in your "old reliable"
was written rather hurriedly. Since
its publication I have had opportu
nities to see more of, and to bettor
appreciate, the progress and im
provement made in the metropolis,
though not the capital, of the gardou
State of tho West. Omaha, in fact,
Nebraska, has been settled, aud so
far developed, by enterprising men.
That spirit of enterprise which caus
ed the.ni to emigrate from tiicir
eastern or foreign homes, and to
sever the tics that had bound them
to the old parcnt.il roof, in order
that they might better their worldly
condition in the west, could not fail,
in its exercise, to devolop the nat
ural resources of this much-favored
region aud to build up a community
of energetic and intelligent citizens.
.But a short time since, a manufacto
ry of any description was unknown
between the Missouri river and the
llocky mountains; now Utah, Wy
oming, Colorado, Montana, Dakota
aud Nebraska arc all busy utilizing
their crude productions. Omaha
contributes largely to the shipments
cast ot western manufactured mate
rials. The morning, noon and even
ing whistles of the smelting works,
nail works, white lead works and
other industries, brush up my mem
ory and carry my thoughts back to
the days when I resided where thou
sands of operatives were employed
in factories makiug lace, linen, cot
ton aud woolen goods. Nebraska,
as an agricultural Slate, has advanc
ed wonderfully, and will continue
to do so. The greater the progress
in this dircctiou, the greater will be
the demand for facilities to manu
facture her productions. As things
arc at present hundreds of thousands
of dollars arc annually lost to the
State from the lack of those facili
ties. Columbus, favored by nature
with water-power equal, if not su
perior to any on the continent, is
bound to becomo tho Lowell of the
west, and that at no very distant
day. I.bavc beard a few croakers
gay "ucver! the Loup cannot bo
utilised too much sand too trcach-
crous a stream.'7 What a foolish
remark. All that is wanted is tho
capital, which can be raisod by
forming a stock company if by no
other mean-; the employment of
competent engiiieet-?, and the con
trol ot the Loup would be a mere
cypher compared with many en
gineering feats which have proved
a success. The inhabitants of your
city and county possess all the nec
essary vim, many ot them consider
able wealth, and all have good
credit, I therefore expoct soon t$
hear of the ball being put in mo
tion. Society here seem to take a good
deal of enjoyment. Sociables and
hops, private parties, club meetings
and other amusements are of nightly
occurrence. The stage aud rostrum
aro well attended and the best talent
on the boards aud lecture list can be
seen and heard here. A special train
leaves to-morrow for Lincoln, giv
ing our citizens the chance of a cheap
ride to attend a camp-fire of the
G. A. II. The train will return the
To-day the Sunday law is to be
rigidly observed. Of course the sa
loon keepers at first thought it was
a shot aimed directly at them. The
original motion of one of tho mem
bers of tho Common Council was so
intended but it was amended so as
to include every busiuoss of what
soever nature. The amendment was
passed, and the City Marshal issued
his instructions to the policemen to
cuforcc all ordinances having any
bearing on the desecration of the
Sabbath. Tho saloon keepers are
said, up to the .present writing (8
p. in.) to have proved to be tho most
law-abiding citizens. While out at
the post-oflicc at noon I saw fist
young men in squads trying to get
in several places to take a " smile,"
but were invariably balked. As
they would leave the door with an
air of disappointment, and conse
quent vexation, I could hear them
muttcriug something which to me
And if a hen wants to lay on Sunday,
Ofcour.se she must put it off until Mon
day! If it was not that, why thou it was
something elso. Several arrests have
been made of milkmen, butchers,
harbors, merchants, and livery men,
with a sprinkling of saloon-keepers.
Your readers need not be told that
the ladies who brought this reform
to a climax received more curses
outside of the church than they over
received prayers within it one day.
Last Thursday evening there was
an enthusiastic meeting of working
men, called for the purpose of de
vising means by which the price of
labor could bo raised in conformity
with the enhanced valuo of thoir
productions and the extra cost of
living and higher rents. Every
business was well represented.
Speeches were made in English and
German, resolutions passed and com
mittees formed, to wait upon em
ployers aud report at a subsequent

Love is tho only thing that will
pay ton per cent, interest on the out
lay. Love is tho only thing in which
tho height of extravagance is the
last degroo of economy. (Applause.)
It Is the only thing, I loll you. Joy
is wealth. Lovo is the legal tender
of the soul, and you need not bo
rich to be happy. Wo bavo all boeu
raised on success in this country.
Always been talked with about
being successful, aud have nover
thought ourselves very rich unlesR
wo aro tho poscisors of some mag
nitiicient mansion, and unless our
names have been between the putrid
lips of rumor, wo could uot be hap
py. Every littlo baby is striving to
be this and be that. I tell you the
happy man is the successful mau.
Tho man who has won the love of
one good woman is a successful
man. Tbo man that has been the
emperor of ouo good heart, aud that
heart embraces all his, has been a
success. (AppUti8e.) If another
has been the emperor of the round
world, and has never loved in his
life, he is a failure.
It won't do. Let U6 teach our
children the other way, that tho
happy mau is the successful man,
and be who is the happy mau
always tries to make some one else
happy. Tho mau who marries a
woman to make her happy; that
marries bcr as much for her sake as
his own ; not the man who thinks
his wife his property, who thinks
that tho title to her belongs to him
wretches who get mad with their
wives and shoot thorn down iu the
etrcct, because tboy think tho wo
man is their properly. I tell you it
is not necessary to bo rich and great
apd powerful to be happy. A littlo
while ago I stood by tho grave of
tho old Napoleon a magnificent
tomb of gilt and gold, fit almost for
a dead deity and gazed upon the
sarcophagus of black Egyptain mar
ble, where rest at last tbo ashes of
tbo restless man-. I leaned over the
balustrade aud thought about the
career of tho greatest soldier of the
modern world. I saw him walking
on the banks of the Seine contem
plating suicide. I saw him at Tou
lonI saw him putting down Iho I
mob in the streets ot Paris I sflw
him at the head of the army in Italy
1 w him crossing the bridge of
Lodi with the tri-color in his hand
I saw him in Egypt iu the shadow
of the pyramids I saw him con
quer the Alps and mingle the eagle
of France with the eagles of the
crags I saw him at Marengo at
Ulm and Austerlitz I saw him iu
Russia, the infantry of the wild
blaBt scattering his legions like win
tor's withered leaves I saw him at
Leipsic in defeat and disaster, driv
en by a million bayonets back upon
Paris, clutched like a wild beast and
banished toElba I saw him upon
the frightful field of Waterloo
where chauco and fato combined to
wreck tho fortunes of their former
king I saw him at St. llelcna, with
his bauds crossed behind him, gaz
ing out upon the sad and solemn
I thought of the orphans and wid
ows ho had made, the tears that had
beou.shed for his glory of the only
woman who had over loved him,
pushed from his hoart by the cold
hand of ambition. And I said I
would rather have been a French
peasant and have worn wooden
shoes. I would rather have lived
in a hut with a vine growing over
the door, and tho grapes growing
purple iu the kisses of the autumn
sun. I would rather have been that
poor peasant, with my loving wife
by my side knitting as the day died
out in the sky, with my children
upon my knees and their arms about
me. I would rather have been that
man and gone down to the tongue
less silence of the dreamless dust
thau to have been tho imperial per
sonation of force and murder known
as Napoleon the Great.
It is not necessary to be rich iu
order to be happy. It is only nec
essary to be in love. Thousands of
men go to college and get a certifi
cate that thoy have an education,
and that certificate is in Latin, and
tboy stop studying, and iu two
years to save their lives they
couldn't read the certificate they got.
It is mostly 60 in marrying. They
stop courting when they get mar
ried. They think we have won her
and that is enough. Ah the dif
ference before and after! How
bright their eyes! How light their
steps, and how full they were of
generosity. I tell you a man should
consider himself in good luck if a
womau Iovos him when ho is doing
his level best. Hob IiujersuU.
OrlffiB of Chrisjliua.
The origin of our Christmas Fes
tival is pro-historic. No one knows
any thing certain as to it. The date
of it was evidently not fixed by the
birth of Christ, but by the move
ments of the sun. The day when
the sun reached the limit of its
southern movement and turned
northward was tho one fixed upon
by the ancient world as a feast day.
Tbo sun worshipers of Persia doubt
less gave the Festival to Old Home,
and the Christians naturally adopt
ed the day, which they found made
ready to baud, for festive purposes ;
and so the Roman Saturnalia be
came Christiana, or our Christmas.
There is no reason to suppose that
the date corresponds to the nativity
of Jesus. Clemens, one of the
Christian Fathers who lived some
200 years after Christ, expressed the
opinion that the birth of Christ oc
curred in the month of May, which
is quite probable.
But the festival is not dependent
on any date. It lives in its own life
derived from the amiable life of all
peoples. For whether wo find it in
Persia or in Rome, among heathen
or Christian people, we always find
it presenting one and the same bright
appearance. In every nation and
age, having a different name in ev
ery language, we fiud it always in
spired with the same spirit. It is
always a day dedicated to friendship
aud affection and expressed in gift
giving. It is pre-eminently now,
what it has always been, a day of
love and of gifts.
It is a true Festival. That i
enough to say of it. The innocent
happiness it brings to households
sanctifies it to us all, and will forev
er. AH tho sweeter and holier it
seems to us because it antedates the
religion which now fosters it. We
rcceivo it as a sweet creation of hu
man affection, before bumauity knew
its connection with Divinity a fra
grant custom drifted to us on the
current of time from the indiscerni
ble distances, which stretch back
toward the beginning of the world.
How the Persian children enjoyed
it! How the boys and girls of the
old Pagan times and world laughed
over their gifts and froliced around
the tree, even as our little ones do
to-day ! We have connected it with
a diviner event, but the sweet pur
poses it serves now, il served in all
the dim days long gone. Let us
remember amid the gaycty of the
Holiday Season that it is now among
tbo least of Christ's triumphs that
he has captured the joy fulness of
the world, and holds it like a white
dove in bis hands.

A ValSc M-illr J'otlicr.-
As Irene Aroon has requested that
I thall give my experience with
children, I think I will continue my
talk with mothers.. But, dear Irene,
I do not feel that I have finished, or
shall finish while life lasts, the care
strewn road that you, perhaps, have
just started on. True, my path may
be compared to one that has opened
out on a level plain. I know that
the dear children try to smooth the
rough places-, and lead me gently
down the western slope. A true
mother is a mother always ; no mat
ter how old her children are, they
are to bo her children still. Tbercwill
be care and anxiety for their welfare
so long as there is one spark of
motherly leve in her bosom. The
youngest of my children is so old
that he handles-, with a cool, aud
fearless hand, a pair of gay young
horses, aud yet my children's actions
say, as did the little boy, when aked
to define the word " home." Said
he: "Home, home why, home is
where mother is!" Yes, we should
win our children's love so complete
ly that no place will be home to
them like that where mother is.
How shall we win that love? By
yielding to their every wish and
whim? By no means. This is just
the way'fo spoil them, and lay up a
harvest of sorrow for the mother.
Xor should their wishes be all
thwarted and the gay young spirits
all crushed down by loo severe dis
cipline. The mother "should first discipline
herself, and ehe should begin that
discipline long before her' child is
capable of reading her face, and they
can do that at a much earlier age
than many think.
If the mother is in the habit of
keeping her own tongue and temper
tinder control, her child will be like
ly to inherit the same faculty.
Does the mother give way to using
slang phrases or low language, her
child will do Ihe same. She is tin
first teacher, learns the child its first
words, and she should be careful
what those wordsarc.
A kind-hearted nurse, as she laid
a little babe in its mother's arms
said: "Now, Flo, for this child's
sake, stop this way you have of
using improper language and slang
phrases, and use only such words as
are chaste and good. You do not
want your boy to use such language
as you have been iu the habit of
using, do you ?"
"No," said the mother, "I do not."
"Then begin 'how to break your
self of the habit you have got into
or it will be too late before you are
aware of it."
The mother promised and seemed
Three years passed ; her boy was
a bright, fine-looking, littlo fellow.
The mother's habits were unbroken,
aud she would laugh to hear him
repeat her own words, words that
made her old friend shudder and
turn away with a sigh, for she loved
the boy dearly.
It is natural for children to follow
the example of their parents, but it
docs seem easier for them to imitate
faults and imperfections. For that
reason wc should be doubly careful
what wc do and say.
A gentleman once took his little
eon to a public dinner. A waiter
came around asking each guest what
he would take to drink ? He came
to the boy before he did to the
father. The latter was watching lo
sec what the choice would be. The
boy looking in the waiter's face said :
"Please, sir, I will take the same as
father does." Some had chosen
wine, some brandy, but .the father
quickly said : "I will take a glass
Thus he saw and acknowledged
the importance of a good example
before his child. Ivy's Motiirk.

he dived in, the chain caught in
some grass or- root at the bottom
