this basis. The Lincoln editor is

And now it transpires that the
City of Omaha owns real estate, of
which no record can bo found in
any of our municipal offices. This
Tact was recently brought to the at
tention of Mayor Chase, by parties
who had been occupants of city lots,
about which no mention is made
in -the abstract book of city property.
This looseness in municipal afiltirais
"however, only in full keeping with
tile Inexcusable irregularities that
.prevail throughout the whole sys
tem. Mayor Chase is the
first municipal executive who
has taken the pains to procure a full
inventory of city property in each
of the various municipal depart
ments, and for this he deserves
great credit. It eeni3 to us, how
ever, that a great corjioration like
the city of Omaha, should have a
reliable record of every inch of real
estate of which they can claim
ownership. In our opinion a mere
abstract or lit, made up by real es
tate agents, will not fill the bill.

now held or claimed by individuals
or corporations originally owned by
the city has leea forfeited by rea
son of their non-camplianee with

us to another important subject.

bo destroyed or lost, -where can re
ever procure an authentic-record of
original locations and surveys.
"Why a matter of such vast im
portance to our citizens should have
been neglected for eighteen years
passes our comprehension. It is a
well known fact that the original
surveys of Omaha were not very
accurate. Some blocks in the pres
ent business center of this city
cover more ground than others.
Some of the streets are not exactly
paralell. It is therefore of the ut
most importance that the County
Clerk's office should contain a relia
ble record of these surveys, includ
ing a copy of' the original maps.
Mayor Chase is on the right track
bat we hope ho will not stop until
the affairs of this city are put on as
sound a basis as those of any well
conducted private corporation.
The re-location of army head
quarters from Washington to St.
LouLs seems now to be definitely ar
ranged. With General Sherman at
St. Louis it will naturally follow
that Sheridan's presence at Chicago
would practically become superflu
ous. It becomes self-evident that it
would be an expensive luxury to
keep up Lieutenant General's
headquarters located at a greater
distance from Department head
quarters at Omaha, Leaven
worth and San Antonio than Gen
eral Sherman would be when at St
We shall therefore not be sur
prised if the relocation of General
Sherman's headquarters, would in
volve a relocation of General Sheri
dan's headquarters, and a possible
readjustment of Department boun
daries. Omaha, it seems to us,
would be a very desirable location
for the Lieutenant General. He
would be near enough to the De
partment of the Missouri, and at the
same timo at a Uesirahle distance
from the great Indian reservations,
north and west.

Under the above head the New
York World gives, from Its London
correspondent, some account of the
condition of the working classes of
England. He lias been looking
over the report of the Inspectors of
Factories for the last year. The In
spectors visited the brick-makers,
and they report that those laborers
are "a most barbarous, semi-civilized,
ignorant set. Men and boys
look like red Indians; the sand used
in brick-making being burnt red,
their bodies are covered with it.
They work bare-headed, barefooted,
with exposed breasts, and with wild
looks. Drinking all day Sunday,
Monday and Tuesday dog-fighting
and man-fighting, they resume work
on Wednesdays, when the poor little
unfortunates (that is, the children
of both sexes, who are-made to do
the hardest part of the labor) are
made to toil away, stamping and
carrying, and pressing a good fort
night's work into three or four
days. One man, who last week
earned in four days twenty-eight
shillings (0.50 In gold), took his
wife home a loaf of bread and six
pence." The law that children under 12
years of age must not be made to
work is systematically disregard
ed. Cases are given Avhcre chil
dren ten or twelve years old are
made to do night work, and havo
but seven hours of the twenty-four
for sleep and meals. These reports
from the brick works are bad enough
but what can we say of the stories
told of the salt works at Droilwich?
In these the women work with the
men all night, both sexes stripped
to the waist, and very little clothing
to cover them below. The mpn wear
short breeches simpty, and the wo
men have on only a single garment,
a skirt, tied about the waist and
reaching to the knees.
The scenes nightly enacted in
thee works are said to be horrible
beyond description, and chastity,
morality and decency are, among
the workers, words destitute of
meaning. This is a brief glimpse
into the condition of tho toiling
masses of the "proudest and most
enlightened nation upon the
globe," the country upon which
the sun never sets. Every
true Briton's heart will probably
swell with pride at the view.
England sends year after year her
wealth and her missionaries to
other lands, to assist and educate,
and clothe and civilize the heathen,
while her own flesh and blood at
home is living in destitution, misery
and shame. This is the "finest peas
antry in the world," of which
England boasts. Let the America'n

ture, view their own condition and

SERENADE BY A FA1KER.
Oh. come my love and live with me ;
And keep my cottaeln the glen,
And patient as a bumble-bee
And busy as a sitting hen.
Oh, rest beneath my fragrant Cower;
Where sweet starmonium doth entwine ;
Coine smell the gentle cauliflower
And cuU the mangle-wirtiel Tine.
Ah. listen to the rural songs I
The pea shall wind his magic shell,
As Echo plaintively prolongs
The warble of the pimpernel.
Bayond the vermicelli sow
1 hear the buU.frogssIgh again
The cackle cf the Durham ewe
The bellow of the Berkshire hen.
Oh, come love, come, the moral is fair,
I'll celebrata the day with thee ;
I'll merrily dig the Bartlett pear.
And shake the rata baga tree.
O'j, hump yourself, my lovely Poll.
And In the cause of anti-monop.
We'll mulch the turkeys in the fall.
And graft the long clam on the crop.
My sweetest ! I am fond of mush.
And thou will set some ut for me ;
Ws'll early sow the currant bush.
And tap the cranberry-jelly tree.
We'll pull the wool from off the calf.
The cottonwood its fleece shall shed ;
So at the winter we shall laugh.
And gaily weed the oyster bed.
We'll bl Ithely hoe the winter wheat.
We'll chase the egg's the squirrels lay.
And when the bantam heg shall bleat
We'll leed him with some clover hay.
All savory game to thae I'll bring ;
The burdoc knows my spear is sharp ;
I'll shoot the dolphin on the wing
And hit him in the pericarp.
Then come my lore and live with me ;
And beautify my lonely den,
As patient as a bumble-bee,
And busy as a sitting hen.

The Los Angeles public library
has made the addition of a second

down in vinegar. The specimen is
about eight inches long by four in

eyes, long feelers, and every other
characteristic, except the usual size
and color, which is a light red.
Mocking birds can imitate human
actions as well as human voices, it

that two birds of this stripe got

enough of it sang out Mquit, quit,"
and followed this up by crying
"police, police." And, oddly
enough, there was a policeman
within hearing who came up and
stopped the fight.

concerts are occasionally given. It
is said that the animals are greatly
affected by vocal music, and lately
became very disorderly during a
performance, rushing about in the

almost drowned the voice of the
singer. Instrumental music does
not seem to affect them so power
fully, but the more sweet and tender
the voice of the singer the more
powerfully they are affected.

But though it looks the very pic
ture of innocence and gentleness, It
has a strange taste for seizing, kill
ing, anu suciong tne Wood of In
sects, and for grasping and eating
raw beef. Mrs. Mary Treat has
contributed to the American Natu
ralist some very curious observations
made on this remarkable plant She
found the specimens upon which she
experimented in New Jersey. The
plant was In full bloom and growing
very thickly on either side of an ex
tensive cranberry plantation. The
first experiment was made with the
best known species, the Dorsera fili
formis. Some livinir flies were
pinned half an inch from the leaves,
near the apex, about ten o'clock in
the morning. In forty minutes the
leaves had bent perceptibly toward
the flies. In two hours the leaves
had reached the flies, and their
leaves were entangled among the
bristles and held fast. The flies
were then removed three-quarters
of an inch further from the leaves.
The leaves still remained bent to
ward the flies, but could not reach
them at this distance. The-observer
thinks that the action of
the flies' wings may have crea
ted sufficient force to bring the
leaves near enough to entangle the
flies, for dead flies failed to produce
the same result as living ones. On
the same day bits of raw beef were
placed oft- some of the most vigor
ous leaves of another species of the
plant, the Drosera longifolia. In
two hours two of the leaves had fol
ded around the beef, hiding it from
sight. Living flies were also placed
upon the same species of the plant.
In a little more than an hour one
of the leaves had folded entirely
around its victim, the other leaves
had practically folded, and the flies
had ceased to struggle. Two hours
later, four leaves had each folded
around a fly.
