And it came to pass that the exchange man was called on
for copy, and it was even told to him that it was the last day
thai the forms could remain open. Now, alas, the exchange
man had spent much time in idle spooning, and in searching
for flowers that he desired not, and in classifying fungi,
when lo, he had graduated Irom hoiany many years before.
And it was thus that he had no copy ready when the copy
was needed. "And must I have copy this very night?" he
asked of him that demanded. "Yea. verily, in one hour
from this time," said the devil with a look ol tire in his face.
And thus it came to pass that the exchange man ciied deep
in heart and said "Alas, I have rend no exchanges, what can
I do to be saved?" And then he called to mind that a some
what recent exchange had objected to an item in Thk I Iks
pkrian concerning one of his bosom friends, and he reasoned
lo himself: "Aha, those local men have perpetrated divers
jokes and puns upon me, and I have not had redress unto
them. Verily 1 am elected for the purpose ol tending to
other people's business. Instead of writing up anything for
my own column, I will blow in n column of wind about how
1 would run some other column il I had n chance." And
thus it was that the devil was appeased and the conscience
of the exchange editor eased so that he might continue to
spoon and to hunt flowers, and to classify fungi. And it
may come to pass that at some time yet to come, when he
is called into the printer's sanctum and found wanting, that
he will again vent his spleen on the local department, all ol
whiclv will be related at some future day.

It is with pleasure th.U Thk Hksi'KRIAN gives space for
making mention of the Cictc Chatauqua, the old reliable.
As the first established Chatauqua assembly In Nebraska, the
Crete assembly bus a past record of energy and of consequent
success, lint in the west no eutci prise can live on a past re
cord alone. Accordingly this Chatauqua assembly presents
to the public this year the best program of entertainment for
a week ever set before Neluaskans. Ol course the Fourth of
July is to be the "big day" of the assembly. On that day,
the far-famed ex-Senator Ingalls will speak on "The Problems
of Our Second Century." With a mar of Ingall'a celebrity
to speak, il is needless to say tnat on the Fourth the crowd
will go to Crete. Hut one atti active number is not enough.
Our own "young man eloquent" Congressman-elect liryan is
to appear July 9; ex-Senator Will Cumback will also speak.
Several other speakers of note arc also announced, such as
Professor Carhart, formerly of DePauw university, Professor
Freeman of Wisconsin univcisity, and other well known
Chatauqua names too numerous too mention. Get a pro
gram and see for yourself. A perusal of the program will
secure your attendance. As a further inducement the rail
roads offer half-fare rates. The Ciete chatauqua this year
will almost rival the national assembly.

These springs are rapidly becoming famous on account
of the wonderful curative properties ol the waters, and the

The town and springs are delightfully situated in a pict
uresque valley in the Black Hills country, abounding in
beautilul scenic effects, and at an altitude of 3,400 feet above
the sea level; thus insuring a pure atmosphere and exhilara
rating climate, absolutely free from malaria.
Under the e.iterprisiug and progressive management of
the Hot Springs company many desirable improvements have
been made; among the number the erection of a commodious
bath house fitted up with all modern conveniences for the
comfort of guests. New hotels have been built and com
fortably furnished throughout, conducted in first-class style
and at reasonable rates. Those who prefer stopping at a
private house, will find many desirable boarding places where
good accommodations are furnished, and at moderate prices.
The superior daily service now afforded by the Burlington
Route to Hot Springs, with through sleeping car accomma
tions from Omaha, Lincoln, Aurora and Grand Island,
makes the trip an easy and enjoyable one; and for the benefit
of all who desire to test the efficacy ol the waters, round trip
tickets at reduced rates, good for ninety days, are now
on sale at the offices of the Burlington Route.
