Laws Out of Date. In an address to the State Medical association Dr. J. B. Greene, former ly superintendent of the Lincoln asylum, but now of Illinois, said the Nebraska laws for the administra tion of charitable institutions were the most antequated in the country Washington. Beginning the day with a fair prospect of an agreement between the regular republicans and the democrats which would permit an early vote upon the railroad bill the senate concluded Thursday's session in as great uncertainty as it has been at any time on that and all other points. The day was full of consultations and from the hour of meeting at noon the situation shifted many times. When adjournment was taken shortly after 4 o'clock there was more talk of an understanding between the "regular" republicans and the "insur gents" republicans than between the regulars and the democrats. The first reports of the day indicat ed the strong probability that a large majority of the democrats, if not all of them, would agree to accept a proposition of the republicans to strike out the last three sections or the bill relating to the capitalization of railroads. This arrangement was to have car ried with it the adoption of an amend ment presented by Senator Cummins to prohibit the lowering of railroad rates to destroy water competition and give a place of advantage to the New Mexico and Arizona statehood bill. In return the democrats were expected to expedite the railroad bill by voting against most of the amend ments offered by the "insurgents" and assist in laying some of them on the tabic. When this proposition was put in writing and Senator Johnson of Ala bama began to circulate it on the minority side of the chamber he met with much opposition 'and before he had proceeded far bis associates be came convinced his party was by no means unanimous in favor of the proposed compact. Among those who refused to si en were Senators Bacon. Rayner. Fra zier. Overman and Smith (S. C.) They raised the objection that the agreement would be construed as a surrender to the "Aldrich republic ans." With such a large defection the movers for an agreement prac tically decided before the close of the day to refrain from further effort in that direction. The failure to put through this formal plan did not have, the effect of causing a complete discontinuance of the efforts to bring the bill to an ear ly vote. Senator Aldrich, who was the prime mover In this direction, was busy throughout the day. Just before the senate adjourned he ex pressed the opinion that some ar rangement would be made soon which would insure the passage of the bill at an early date. Senator Hale in an open talk in the senate said that a vote should be reached by the end of next week. MAKING THE BEST OF STEAK Most Effective Way of Dealing, for In stance With the Flank End of Porterhouse. Before speaking of the cooking of the cuts that lack tenderness through out. It may be well to reVer to the fact that the flank end of tfe porterhouse Is to be classed with tfce toughest of cuts and with those which, when cooked alone, are with difficulty made tender even by long heating. Mock duck, which Is commonly made out of flank steak, can be rendered tender enough to be palatable only by long steaming or cooking in water, and yet people quite generally broil this nart of the steak with the tenderloin and expect It to be eaten. The fact Is that to broil this part of the porterhouse steak is not good management. It Is much more profitable to put It into the soup kettle or to make it Into a stew. In families where most of the members are away during the day the latter is a good plan, for the end of the steak makes a. good stew for two or three people. This may be sea soned with vegetables left from din ner, or two or three olives cut up in gravy will give a very good flavor; or a few drops of some one of the bottled meat sauces. If the flavor Is relished, or a little Chill sauce may be added ta the stew. But if the tough end of a porterhouse Is needed with the rest, a good plan is to put it through a meat grinder, make it into balls, and broil it with the tender portions. Each mem bet of the family can then be served with a piece of the tenderloin and a meat ball. If the chopped meat is seasoned with a little onion juice, grated lemon rind, or chopped parsley, a good flavor is imparted to the gravy. favorite Recipes LV xW V W .r Irall A Ffcisfag Seise of Health d Strength Reaewed aod of Ease and Confort follows the use of Syrup of Figs in 61 Elixir of Senna, as it acts gently on the kidneys, liver and bowels, cleans ing the system effectually, when con stipated, or bilious, and dispels colds and headaches.

Soak the dried peas over night, then cook the same as the potatoes, but add plenty of onions to flavor the peas. Carrot soup can be made in the same way. Creamed Potatoes With Cheese. Make a good white sauce, using two tablespoonfuls of flour, a tablespnonful and a half of butter, salt and pepper to season and a cupful of milk. Cut the potatoes in slices and boil.

Vice President Sherman has writ ten to A. H. Talbor saying he cannot come to Lincoln to deliver the address at the laying of the Young Men's Christian association cornerstone. An invitation was extended to the vice president by Mr. Talbot when the lat ter was in Washington several weeks ago. and the vice president thought at that time he might arrange to be here. Since going over his engage ments elsewhere, however, he finds It will be Impossible for him to visit Lincoln Charge of White Slavery. Orin Teeters, under arrest at Nel son, has been extradited by Governor Shallenberger, and will be taken back to Oklahoma on the charge of "white slavery," an offense that Is punishable by the Oklahoma law by imprison ment in the penitentiary from five to twenty years. Sheriff R. E. Reeder of Kay county, arrived in Lincoln to take the prisoner back with him. He says Teeters is accused of taking Violet Pontious, aged seventeen, for immoral purposes. Teeters and the girl have been traveling about in Oklahoma and Kansas since last January. The girl says Teeters promised to marry her but has not done so.

The stock of the traction company also includes a heating plant, power plant and an electric light plant, all of which are run by the same plant that operates the street cars. The commission is trying to get at what portion of the earnings should go to the several Industries. George V. Clasps Hand of Kaiser at Edward's Bier. London. Nine crowned heads of Europe and several heirs to thrones sat down in Buckingham palace to night at a dinner, which King George gave to all his eminent guests as sembled In London for the funeral of King Edward. After the dinner the members of all the suites were intro duced to the king. Emperor William of Germany, who arrived in the morning was met by King George, and later had an affect ing meeting with the Queen Mother Alexander. The emperor, accompan ied by King George, proceeded to Westminster hall and paid a tribute to the memory of Edward VII. For a few moments, while the emperor and king knelt beside the coffin, the thousands who were waiting in line to file past the catafalque, were held in check, though those within West minster hall were permitted to re main. Upon rising to their feet the two monarchs clasped hands as they stood with bowed heads beside the body of King Edward. Selection of Poultry. In choosing poultry select those that are soft. Perhaps the surest way to determine whether they are young is to try the skin under the leg or wing. If It Is easily broken It is young: or turn the wing backwards, and if the joint yields readily It Is lender. When poultry Is young the skin is thin and tender, the legs smooth, the feet moist and limber, and the eyes full and bright. The body should be thick and the breast fat. Old turkeys have long hairs and the flesh Is purplish where it shows under the skin on the legs and back. About March they deteriorate In quality. Young ducks and geese are plump with light scmitransparent fat. soft breast bones, tender flesh, leg joints which will break with the weight of the bird, fresh-colored and bristle beaks, and the windpipes that break when pressed between the thumb and fore finger. They are best in fall and winter. ISBP' BBBBBBBVRBBBBBBBBBVaBaBRBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB" RaBaaVuEaRaaRaBSX. BaaRBBVBBBaBnaaBaBBaBBaBBI AH. a Ml Taka Dvta Street Car URMHH at Unlet Depot.
