ficially, before the m hands of the big
round clocks in the chambers of the
two houses of congress pointed to the
hour of midnight Saturday, the first
session of the Sixtieth congress came
to a close. w In the house the closing
hours were characterized by singing
of songs "by republicans in honor of
Speaker Cannon and by "democrats in
the Interest of "William J. Bryan. - The
excitement, which was great at times,
finally subsided and the session closed
with good fellowship among the mem
bers. As soon as It was announced in the

ed by Mr. Bartholdt and it was at once
The senate was extremely quiet dur

only by the necessity of remaining in

The last days of the senate will be
memorable on account of the filibuster
of Messrs. La Follette, Stone and Gore
'against the emergency currency bill,
the remarkable interpretations of the
rules which go far to establish cloture
in a body noteworthy for. the freedom
of debate and by the final passage of.
the currency bill. President Rooseveit
and several of his cabinet were at the
capitol during the evening.
The passage of the government em
ployes' liability bill and the adoption
of the conference reports on the pub
lic buildings and the deficiency ap
propriation bills immediately following
final action on the Aldrich-Vreeland
compromise on the currency measure
in the senate disposed of most
of the remaining important legislation
before that body.

capitol at 9 o'clock. He went immedi
ately to the president's room on the
senate side, where he remained in
readiness to sign the bills as passed..

banks and Speaker Cannon under the
terms of the Aldrich-Vreeland bill, held
ItB first meeting Sunday, and while the

Chicago Senator William B. Alli
son, who passed through Chicago en

KNEW WHAT THE JOB MEANT.
Angry Citizen Put Ordeal Up ta Street
Not long ago there entered the office
of the superintendent of a trolley line
in Detroit an angry citizen, demand
ing "justice" in no uncertain terms.
In response to the official's gentle
inquiry touching the cause of the de
mand, the angry citizen explained
that on the day previous as his wife
was boarding one of the company's
cars, the conductor thereof had
stepped on his spouse's dress, tearing
from it more than a yard of material.
"I can't see that we are to blame
for that," protested the superintendent
"What do you expect us to do, get her
a new dress?"
"No. sir, I do not," rejoined tho
angry citizen, brandishing a piece of
cloth. "What I propose is that you
people, shall match this material."
IS IT POSSIBLE?

A Frenchman, who apparently has
been amusing himself by reckoning
up the number of kisses he has given
his wife during the first 20 years of
his married life.
He finds that in the first year he
dispensed about 100 kisses a day, or,
say, allowing for birthdays and legal
and church holidays, about 36,700 in
In the second year this number was
reduced by half, and la the third
year to ten a' day, while in the fifth
year his better half had to be content
with two a day, one in the morning
and one in the evening.
What happened after the fifth year
is 'wrapped in mystery," but at the'
same rate of "progression" he prob
ably arrived eventually at one kiss or
the first of January every leap year.
"Helpful Hints" That Hinder.
Many of the "helpful tints" followed

useless, if not more harmful than
helpful. For Instance, no one now
uses moist tea leaves to clean a carpet

ing. And salt used on a carpet col
lects dampness and rusts the tacks.
Newspapers, dampened and torn, an

THE FIRST TASTE
Learned to Drink Coffee When a
If parents realized the fact that cof
fee contains a drug caffeine which
is especially harmful to children, they
would doubtless hesitate before giv
iacr the babies coffee to drink.
"When I was a child in my mother's
arms and first began to nibble things
at the table, mother used to give me
aps of coffee. As my parents used
coffee exclusively at meals I never
knew there was anything to drink but
coffee and water.
"And so I contracted the coffee habit
early. I remember when quite young,
the continual use of coffee so affected
my parents that they tried roasting
wheat and barley, then ground it in the
coffee-mill, as a substitute for coffee.
"But it did not taste right and they
went back to coffee again. That was
long before Postum was ever heard of.
I continued to use coffee until I was 27,
and when I got into office work, I be
gan to have nervous spells. Especially
after breakfast I was so nervous I
could scarcely attend to my corre
spondence. "At night, after having coffee for
supper, I could hardly sleep, and on
rising in the morning would feel weak
"A friend persuaded me to try Post
um. My wife and I did not .like it
at first, but later when boiled good

would not give up Postum for the

from nervousness and headaches. I
recommend Postum to all coffee drink,

The grain rate hearing before the t
State Railway commission . on com
plaint of Senator C. A. Sibley against

commission allowed J. G. Beeler, at
torney for- the complainant, forty days
in which to file briefs, .the defendant
to have thirty days to answer and the
complainants fifteen days additional
for filing reply briefs.-
The allegation of the complainant
that grain rates-In Nebraska are
Higher than rates in other states and
x 15 per cent ' reduction would not
bring them below many special rates,
voluntarily enforced by the railroads;
was made by the Burlington with a
showing that the density of tonnage is
greater in Iowa and Missouri than in
Nebraska and that some of the low
rates In this state are feeders rates
which should not be taken as compen
satory. The comparison of grain rates from
Nebraska stations to Omaha and Kan

showing that grain rates to Kansas

"Be it Resolved by the Grand Army
of the Republic in Encampment as
sembled, That our right and wishes

the United States. Sec. 1754. Persons
honorably discharged from the mili

ability resulting from wounds or sick
ness incurred in the line of duty shall
be preferred for appointments to civil
offices, provided they are found to
possess the business capacity neces

offices. ' '
Sec. 1755 In grateful recognition of
the services, sacrifices and sufferings
of persons honorably discharged from
the military and naval services of the
country by reason of wounds, disease
or expiration of terms of enlistment;
it is respectfully recommended to
oankers. merchants, manufacturers,
mechanics, farmers and persons en

conferred by the 1754 section of the
Revised Statutes, nor to take from the
president any authority not inconsis

1753 section of said statutes."
In carrying out the wishes and re
specting the rights of the Grany Army
they have been totally disregarded
by the present 'state authorities. And
of right we demand that the patriotic

pursued by all former administrations
of this state toward the Grand Army
be recognized. And that any rurther
2ncrcachments upon these sacred
rights by the debt-paying politicians
shall cease. And that we hereby
pledge ourselves to pursue these de
