Senator Allen is being severely
roasted for having consumed 3,000
worth of time in the senate in "beefing"'
on the senate restaurant and then con
verting the funeral train conveying the
body of Representative Post, ot Illinois,
home from Washington, into a junketing
caravansary for himself and daughter.
Senator Allen finds it very difficult to be

Kansas is in many respects a wonder
ful state, in history, in productions, in
measures of reform, in men, indeed in
things general and things particular, she
is singular and unique. The latest is the
verdict of a jury that the prisoner was in
deed the man who committed the murder,
but was not responsible, being under the
influence of another man through hypnot
ism. If this Kansas verdict is to stand
as good law, hypnotists must be cir
cumscribed. Abchbishop Elder at Cincinnati on
Friday promulgated the order against
Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias and
Sons of Temperance, and accompanied
the text of the order with a statement of
reasons why good Catholics should obey.
One of the reasons was that to belong to
these orders made Catholics more toler
ant of Free Masonry, which had long
been declared inimical to the church.
Another was that iu the case of the
Knights of Pythias a pagan is selected
to be treated as a saint.
The storm of Friday last extended
it, only there they had rain, snow, and
a thermometer down to 9 and 10 below
zero. Ice formed as far south as Savan
nah, Georgia. In Indiana, along with
the show they had a singular deposit of
dost, pronounced by some to be star
dust or metoric, by others soil very
finely pulverized, by others an animal
deposit, and spoken of in some places
as a red bug, almost microscopic in
character. The coating was from one
eighth to a. half inch thick on the snow.

During the coming summer the New
York University Extension Society will
take a party of students over the ground
traversed by Washington during the
revolution, while at each important point
a noted lecturer will point out its lessons.
The courses will begin, very appropriate
ly, at Independence Hall, Philadelphia,
on the last Saturday in July, when the
anniversary of Washington's appoint
ment as commander of the American
army will be celebrated. Next day the
pilgrims will attend the famous old
Christ church, and on Monday they wilj
follow Washington to Boston and listen
to addresses by Dr. Hale, Professor
Fiske, Colonel Higginson, and others,
under the old elm at Cambridge where
the General tookcommand of the, army.
From Boston they will visit Plymouth,
Salem, Lexington, Concord, and Deer
field, and then by way of Newport and
Providence will reach Hartford, return

The above paragraph pictures a prac
tical method of study that commends
itself to the common sense of everybody.
History is, of all things, one of the most
useful acquirements because it is "phil
osophy teaching by examples." Certain
ly the proper study of history is one of
the very essential elements of education
especially where, as in a popular form of
government, the general welfare cf the
people depends directly upon their in
telligence and independent spirit. The
older generation of men now living, how
ever, can look back with loathing to the
dry-as-dust mental provender furnished
fifty years ago to the student at school
the memorizing of the names of battles,
number of killed, wounded and prison
ers, and the names of commanders on
each side, etc., making the great burden
of the so-called instruction.
The Holt-county Scott case continues
to attract considerable attention, but
nothing definite has yet been reached.
The following, from the Holt County
Beacon Light, appears to mirror the
different views held there:
"Barrett Scott has suddenly disap
peared, and the most diligent and care
ful search should be prosecuted until he
is found, dead or alive. If he has been
murdered by vigilantes because he
stole the people's money the guilty ones
should be brought to justice and suffer
the rjenaltv of the crime of murder. If
he has been murdered by his pretended
friends who got part of the county
money, and were equally guilty with
Scott, because he had demanded of them
the money or exposure, then they should
be dealt with as murderers and punished
according to law. It he has been spirited
away by his friends for the purpose of
escaping prison by a farcical hold up
and the shooting of his team, and leaving
a trail to the Niobrara for the pnrpose
of leading the public to believe he was
under the ice and thus pave a way to re
lease his present bondsmen and enable
the collection of his large life insurance,
then the scheme should be exposed and
the perpetrators condemned. In any
event the great mass of people desire to
know what disposition has been made of
Barrett Scott, and every endeavor should
be made to find him, and no honorable
effort should be spared to ferret out hia
abductors and administer their punish
ment according to the enormity of the
A waoek of 4,000 was made by the
Nebraska legislature several years ago
that no one would be able to find coal in
paying quantity in the state of Nebraska.
J. C. Wood of Pawnee has decided to
take this wager up, and for that pnrpose
his son E. N. Wood, has been in Lincoln
getting papers in readiness to present to
the governor, and it he can convince the
governor that he has found the required
amount of coal he will le entitled to the
standing reward of $4,000. Six years
ago Mr. Wood drilled down into the
earth near Table Rock and found coal.
The governor is authorized under the
law to appoint a commission to make an
examination and on the report of this
commission if it is favorable, he has
power to order tho auditor to draw a
warrant for the amount of tho reward.
The legislature has made no appropria
tion for this purpose and if Mr. Wood
wins the wager that body will be called
upon to pay it.
Senator Jones of Arkansas in credited
with taking an active part in seenring
action on the tariff at a critical moment,
and he now comes forward with a cur
rency bill, which, it is said, bids fair to
harmonize discordant elements and make
an end of trouble. He realizes that sil
ver and bonds are the two, great antago
nizing forces, and so he reaches both by
providing for the issuance of 8500,000,000
2M Per cen bonds to be paid for in gold
and to be used both for current expenses
ot the government and the redemption
of United States and treasury notes.
And for tho unlimited coinage of silver,
the government retaining as seignorage

of the bullion and its market value on
the day that the bullion is taken to the
Fos the benefit of all concerned we
quote the statutes of Nebraska in refer
ence to paupers as follows: Section 32G1
reads, "Overseers of poor shall at each
regular session of the board of county
commissioners, make a full report of
their actings and doings under tins
chapter and return a list of all the poor
within their respective precincts specify
ing the age, sex, and infirmities of each."
Section 32C2, "Upon making such report
it shall be the duty of the county com
missioners to issue their warrants or
drafts on the treasurer, for the payment
ot the expense necessarily incurred by
the overseers ot the poor in supporting
such poor persons." Has the law been
complied with? Schuyler Herald.
Some wise legislator down at Lincoln
should set his head for the repeal of the
twenty per cent on delinquent taxes.
This species of robbery of those who,
through -temiiorary misfortune of any
kind are unable to pay their taxes, used
to lie forty per cent. This robbing rate
was cnt squarely in two, and this should
now be done again. If not, why not? Is
the state entitled, any more than any
body else, to receive usurious interest?
If the extra, above a legal rate, is to be
considered in the nature of a penalty,
then place it in the school fund. Make
it ten per cent, especially as yon are
thinking of making interest on warrants

No one would ever think of connect
ing the profession of nursing with the
tariff. Yet it is an unprotected industry
that has already suffered so much from
tho evil effects of tho present tariff that
almost to a woman, for I am now con
sideling the woman nurses, they are
all very pronounced in their, denuncia
tion of a policy that has affecteoTthem
so seriously. Mind you, they are not
grumbling about the condition of affairs
as brought about by a Democratic con
gress, for they have no politics and
know no such creed as protection. But
what they are dissatisfied with is the
fact, and 'not theory, that there is no
employment for them today as there
should be at this season of the year,
and the outlook of a dull winter is not
encouraging. In a college J have in
mind that graduated 25 full fledged
nurses in the class of '94 there are to
day but eight of this number that are
busy, and those who are more experi
enced are no better off.
Why doctors and nurses should suffer
from hard times may not appear imrne
diately, but let us see how it is and
when it is that these two very impor
tant classes of people are busy. A doc
tor is a necessity, and a nurse is a lux
ury, so while a physician may have
just as many cases in hard times as in
good times bis percentage of receipts
is greatly decreased and the number of
charity patients increased. In tbeoaM
of a nurse, however, the result is vast
ly different A person who is ill aatt in
need of nursing will not incur the ex
pense of trained nurse so long as tbe
income of tbe family is reduced or lim
ited, and though many may need tbe
offices of one they depend upon the at
tention of some other member of tbe
family to look after them.
It has been shows that during the
first six months of the year wages had
been reduced on an average of 45 per
cent as compared with tbe same period

results? Why, it means just 45 per
cent less to be expended on luxuries and
the limited use of necessities. As I have
6tated before, a trained nurse is un
doubtedly a luxury, and, no matter how
great tho need, the mother of the house
hold would be the last to expend for a
luxury jWhat would deprive the rest of
her family of necessities. In good times
she would be glad of the care given her
by a nurse, but when it means that her
children or husband would have les3 to
eat or fewer clothes she would reject all
thoughts of a trained nurse.
When one considers the evil effects of
a free trade tariff, he is apt only to think
of how much the manufacturer will lose.
It never occurs to the enemy of the
wago earner, or if it does he shuts his
eyes to the fact, that ho is not only af
fecting the business of tho manufacturer,
but is reducing the wages of the em
ployee, and thereby causing him to en
dure the privations and hardships which
novertv alone can brine. As for those.
dependent upon the demands of the
wage earner and who furnish the supply
for his needs, they are not brought into
the question. So it is today, with tho
effects of a free trade tariff about us on
