Mr. N. 11. Kulm of this city and late
president of the association on the part
of tlio association , made the following
reply :
x. ir. KUIIN'S HEPI.V.
Mr. Clark : On behalf of the distinguished
guests from outside the stale , for the olliccrs
mill members present , our comrades absent ,
and for tlio inhabitants of Nebraska , for all
interested in having capable , careful and of-
Sclent pharmacists , 1 sincerely thank you as
the representative of the chief maulstiate of
this flourishing Imrc and as a citizen of this
beautiful Gale Cltv , for the cordial welcome
you have extended to all. The good wisiics
you have spoken , wo earnestly hope may be
merited , and by hard work become worthy of
the confidence expressed.
In ancient times , pharmacy was an occult
science , and the alchemist delving over his
'crucible and alhanor , seeking to gather from
their products the long-looked for and anx
iously waited "Elixir of Life , " was a person
to whom tlio people looked with a devout
confidence as one possessed ot ii'oro than
inorUU knowledge. To-day the people look
to pharmacists with almost equal trust , not
because ot the mysterious knowledge hidden
beneath , but for the reason mat they are , to
aureateror less extent , an educated , semiprofessional -
professional class , on whom faith reposed , is
woithlly placed , Hecause , by long centuries
of study , the mysterious charm has been cast
aside and the facts of an exact science are
used by the palient and hard working phar
The magician of the past labored In vain
for the "Elixir of Ufe , " but the druggist of
the present , while not holding out these de
lusions , does , by patient labor ,
untold health giving remedies In
a more palatable form , and with
.pure water , fresh air , simple lood , temperate
'life would leach that from these are to bo ob
tained the only "Elixir of Life. "
Further , it should be said that , should
'your duties penult you to again bo with us ,
the doors of tlio meeting will always be open
to you.
Again thanking you , wo will begin our
meeting with thu ileslie Ihat your kind hopes
for our success may bo f ullilled.
jrMr. , Kulm'H address jvns cordially
prcoled with cheers.
Mr. Henry IX Ifoydon , of Grand Island ,
president of the association , then deliv
ered the annual address , of which the
'following is a synopsis :
' I'ltKamiJNT iioruiiK'a ADDUKSS.
- " I need not tell you that it affords me the
keenest pleasure to bo able to meet you upon
'tliis littu annual gathering of our associa
Time has llown by so swiftly sincn our
first meeting In the ctipltol city ot our stale-
four years airp for llio purpose of organiz
ing tfio society whoso interests we are now
Assembled together to consider , that I ean
hardly realize the time has fully come , aye ,
already past for us to put off the swaddling
clothes of luf'aiithood and don the habili
ments of iiiaturcr age.
The growth of our association In numbers ,
in material strength. In social nnd moral in-
llueneo , as well as In the dignity of the pro
fession wo i ( 'present , gives assurance of
greater maturity already attained and an
earnest faith for the future Dial must bogratl-
tying lo everyone interested in seeing llio
science and art of pharmacy elevated ana
broadened , and Hie interests of thu skilled
and conscientious druggist better guarded
and protected.
Mo one knows so well as the pharmacist
himself , the great responsibilities that rest
constantly upun him , responsibilities tlmt
make a perpetual draft upon both his .skill
and his conscience. The competent druirgist
t- realizes us uo one else can how c.onstantly ho
stands btweeu the public weal and the deadly
ml&takcs of absent-minded and forgetful as
veil as criminally ignorant physicians and
\ the recklessness and wickedness of
private individuals. When thu public
uhall reallro this Important thriilh , that
' , the pharmacist rises far above the mere
r mechanical exertion of compounding , that It
Is his standard of pharmacy and pharmaceu
tical education that presides at the reallzalion
, - of the physician's pio.scriptidn , and stamps
it with absolute cot Utility , with joyful relia
bility , and fortilics it with bis bond that involves -
' ' volves his reputation and his money ; then
will the public begin lo comprehend that
; . pharmacy is not a trade merely but a profes
sion tlmt brings Into remtlsllion the best f'ac-
ultlns of a well trained mind , and scruples
f conscience that only beings of high cut-
i tine pos > ess.
Apropos of this thought , permit me to say
> that It Is the ulm and pin pose of our absocia-
: tlon to make these two qualities stand out In
bold and gratifying relief In the practice ot
t our ilillk'ult profession , nnd to e. mpel thu
public to ivco'iiUu ; their existence ) and their
Inestimable value ,
" > " 'Nowhere ' in tlio world is the art and science
' : of ph.irmaey so completely enthroned In the
n appreciation and admiration ot an educated
people as In Germany. It mav bo justly said
that I u the amount ot preparatory education
/ loqulrcd , the hlgli standard of Hcimitilic and
* pniulleal qualification , and the restrictlous
v ) Vforr ( l by law and controlled by the gov
ernment , Germany stani ) * tint and highest ,
A- glance at the requirements that .secure the
„ -.jiHarmac.ists a license for the practice of his
lirofvsslou throughout the empire will reveal
the secret of why this -la so. The candidate
fbrhpurcntictvmlp in Germany must have nt
talni'u maturity lor .tlio second eluss of the
tryumuMuui , or must have passed Ih'rougli a
it . rcil school. The - - - - ' - ' ' -
must last three years , during which
time the pupils progress and
the obllcatory Instruction of his master are
controlled by annual examinations by a dele
gate of the dlslilct government. At the close
of the apprenticeship , and after successfully
passing an examination before aboard , also
appointed by Hie district government , the
candidate has to complete his pracl leal experi
ence bv solving three years more as a clerk ;
and then lie is entitled to enter upon the
obligatory course of university study at any
ono of the twenty German universities. Ho
is free to attend such lectures as ho may
choose , and at the close of the lecture term
lie may select another university- according
to his option ; while the state requires with
uncompromising so verity a satisfactory pass
age of a comprehensive final examination.
To this the student Is only admitted after
havlnz attended the lectures and labor
atory Instruction for nt least throe lec
ture terms of ono and a half years ;
iiixm this , the state grants n llcemo.
Hut the German student Is not always con
tent to slop thcio. Jle very often continues
Ills university and laboratory studios , and by
the subsequent passage of an examination
before the philosophical faculty of a uni
versity , entitles himself to the degree of
doctor of pharmacy. This course of study
and strict attention to the practical phases of
the art and science of pharmacy , under com
petent Instructors , who are held to strict ac
count to thu state for the faithful manner In
which they discharge their trust to jvards the
apprentice , doubtless seems unreasonably
Ions ; and tigorous to the average pharmacist
whose training In his profession was ob
tained under the methods common to the
United States , and to bring the average
American apprentice fact ] to face with a
curriculum of study would doubtless bring
Into requisition the most powerful remedies
for resuscitation In cases of swooning from
freight. In other words , and In the common
parlance of the street , It would "paralyze the
youth. "
Cut Is not the excellence and dignity con
templated in this course the very standard
this association would set up ? ami for the
raising of sucn a stuulard , or the doing
something toward raising a standard , does
not our society In the very nature of Its con
stitution stand pledged ? Austria , Hungary ,
Russia , Switzerland , Sweden , Xorway and
Denmark approximate the thoroughness of
the course ot pharmaceutical education in
Germany. Hut somcwiiat less thorough Is
the course required in Uoumania. Italy nnd
Greece. In Franco pharmaceutical education
Is controlled by the state , so far as that
students , after a more or less brief experience
in drug stores , have to attend for one or
two years the lectures at one of
the pharmaceutical schools at Paris ,
Nance or Montpeller , or at the
pharmaceutical schools at Nantes or Mar
seilles , and niter this they must pass an ex
amination. Upon the satisfactory passage
of this examination thu student receives , ac
cording to the time of his study and thu price
he is able to pay , the diploma as as a phaima-
cien of the or of the second degree.
Thu first-class pharmacist may oneago in
his profession wlierovor lie pleases In KIMUCC ,
while the second-class ono must conlinu him
self exclusively to small cities , towns or vil
lages. The course ot study Is somewhat more
thorough lu Belgium and thu Netherlands ,
but Is more deficient in practical proiielunoy.
Hero the student must first attend lectures
and afterwards attain skill and experience
In pharmacy when ho is admitted to exam
ination and subsequently to practice.
In Spain and Portugal the course Is very
like that of France. The universities in
Madrid. Barcelona and Grenada and the
medical schools at Lisbon , Oporto and Co
lumbia In Portugal , afford the required in
struction to pharmaceutical students. In
Turkey three years apprenticeship is required
and subsequent attendance upon lectures at
the Imperial Institute in Constantinople ,
which a.'so has control of examinations and
grants license to practice. In Great Britain
the-stato has exercised obligatory influence
over the qualifications of pharmacists for only
twenty years. Tills control is vested in the
pharmaceutical society of Great Britain and
In the privy council , but the former does the
work. Three successive examinations are
required , a preliminary oim for registration
as 'apprentice" or "student , , ' a minor ono for
license as "chemist" and "drusglst" or a major
examination for "pharmaceutical chemist. "
Pharmaceutical education in tlio countries of
iSpanisli and Portugese America is some
thing that Is yet to bo brought forth from the
Ignorance , that hangs I ike a canopy of dark
ness over those people. It may be said , how
ever , that Mexico , Peru nnd Hrazil have
taKcn some stopstowards the enforcement of
more civili/.ed methods. As we all know
from nearer contact pharmaceutical educa
tion in Canada is much the slime as that in
tlio United States.
The standard of pharmaceutical education
In the United States is sadly wanting In unl-
foimity. This , as we all know , comes from
thu fact that such education is not uniformly
obligatory. Until quite recently it has been
left to Individual opinion and efforts.
Tlio attempts at regulation by legislation
have been sporadic and In a largo degree fu
tile. Yet , the organized Influence of accom-
Sllshod pharmacists educated in the United
tales and Germany , has done a great work
within the last two decades In elevating the
standard of pharmaceutical education in this
country. Tlio good work still goes on , and it
may bo safely predicted that within the next
twenty years the United Slates will lead the
van ot the world in the matter of pharma -
ceutlcal education.
It Is mainly dim to this Inllueucn that the
schools of pharmacy in Chicago , St. Louis ,
Philadelphia. Now York , Albany , Boston ,
Baltimore , Ann Arbor , Plttsburg , Cincin
nati , Louisville , San Francisco , Washington
and Nashville have attained to so high aplace
as educational Institutions. Thu course pro
scribed in some of theio schools is par excel
lence , and the facilities for thorough instruc
tion unsurpassed In any of the schools of
Ills our mission to contiibiito something
towards the complete realization of the ob
jects of the best of thpso buhoots. It will not
bo denied by the informed that our associ
ation has .already douusomelhini : of perma
nent value in this dliectlon. The colleges
themselves have acted in commendable har
mony in an effort for gradual and nnlfouii
elevation of the scope and standard of educa
tion and proficiency among pharmacists. Tlio
HUCCOSS that has crowned their efforts lias
been such as to justify the most san
guine hopes for the future of pharmaceutical
education In thu United .States. Without
doubt the most morions drawback to general
and permanent results is the absence of any
authoritative , national or state lestrlctlon
and control of practical pharmacy , and In a
consequent excessive ovetciowdluK of the
Our olforls to seem o proper and clllcleut
legislative restriction in this state have thus
far availed very little. Hut II is conlldently
hoped that the next general assembly of thu
slate will enact a law fully covering the real
needs ol the public In this le ard. The op
position to wholesome legislation for mutual
protection ot thu public and pharmacists ,
which lias always shown itselt when
ever the Intelligent power , of the
state has been invoked , lias for
tunately dwindled down to compar
atively nothing. The Intelligence of society
demands thu restrictive legislation that tills
association will recommend , and tiie next
legislature without doubt , will show the .samo
disposition to respond to this Intelligent sen
timent , as did that of l&fi. The bill passed
by that body was vetoed by the governor
on purely constitutional grounds. Happily
away has been discovered by which all needed
legislation may be had without cumin2 Into
conflict with the constitution. The legisla
tive committee ha * done Its duty in this re-
siiuct Yet it will bo well for the report of
that committee- locelvu thu most careful
consideration at the hands of the association ,
so that any proposed law may have the en
dorsement of the acllberato judgement of
the society. Wholesome pharmacy laws are
In force in neaily two-thirds of the staU'sof
the Union , and in the light ot the past prog
ress in this icspeet it is not unreasonable to
expect that all states will bo Included In the
catalogue , within a very few years.
The trrcat aim of pharmaceutical societies ,
should bo to bring about such uniformity of
legislative action in the several states as
shall amount practically to national law.
Indeed , it would bointhn interests of so-
rloty.tumid congress lay aside Its lear of too
great centralization of power and enact a
compiehenslvo law that would operate uni
formly Inall the states. In the absence of
this pharmacists have it left within their
power to brius about the next bc-st thing
uniformity lifKtatu laws. 1 am happy in the
hellel' that thu people In our own state are
educated up to that point In respect of this
matter which precludes the psssibllity
of serious opposition , la this connection
1 desire to call attention to the desirability of
a statute regulating the ilespcnslng of salts
of murphls. A careful examination of the
law recently enacted in Georgia lunching
this mibjcct tins convinced mo that the action
of the legislature of that stale was well timed ,
nnd the law in Its provlMms worthy of our
imitation , .Many ot tie | states have laws ex
empting registered pharmacists from , jury
duty. Caicful examination of the reasons
K.IVHII fur consideration exercised by thu
nubile towards pMcUhhu. uharma UUwill , I
ihluX , fully sallsfy the .mtejllsent person
that Justice demands the enactment of such
exemption laws In every state ,
Assuiedly the dcmauds of citizenship are
not so unreasoning and Imperative as to re
quire the pharmacist to leave his prescription
case In chargoof iRnorancoandinexperience ,
and thus perchance endanger some life and
may be his own bond as a pharmacist , In
order to satisfy the demand upon his citizen
ship by sitting on a jury In some cause in
volvlng a few dollars , or some nelchborliood
Our association should endeavor to secure
the passage of these laws at the next session
of the legislature. At a late day I learned
thai llio committed on pharmacy would not
ho able to make a report That the associa
tion might not be disappointed In respect to
so Important a matter , 1 appointed Mr. O. M.
Oleson , of Omaha , to make a report. Ho
very kindly assumed the duty , and 1 am glad
to know llio report Is ready to bo laid before
thoassoetallon , and will prove ot much inter
est and profit Tlio formal thanks of
the assocmllon are duo him , and
1 trust this courtesy will not bo
overlooked. The results of the labor per-
lormed by tlio committee on membership nrn
quite convincing that It ban not been Inactive
or careless of its duty. I would-suggest that
this committee bo Increased to live members ,
and that they bo chaixed with the additional
duty of aiding the worthy secretary In the
collection of dues. The "tramp" ( I beg par
don ) lives of the members of this committee
peculiarly lit them for collectors , and un
doubtedly they will shoulder the new duty
stuw'sted without a "kick. "
I would not consider that I had done Jus
tice to you , and 1 know that I would do great
violence to my own feelings and SCIIHO of
Justice were ! to close my remarks without
paying tribute , though In chords without elo
quence , to the memory of those of our asso
ciation who. since wo last mot , have been
touched by the cold wing of the angel of death.
Mr. Stephen A. Drown , ot the firm of Urown
& liutclnuson , North Head , departed this
life January 7 , IBSi ) , at the age of ill years.
Deceased became a member of the associ
ation in ISSo. He was reputed to be a phar
macist of excellent training and aniost popu
lar business man. Mr. John Lewis lloclco
died August SJ , 18S5 , when ho had hardly
passed tin threshold of manhood , being M
years and five months old. , Though yet In
the roseate year of lite and just en
tered upon an active business career
ho had already given evidence of thor
oughness in Ills profession , and of being
the possessor of those sterling qualities of
mind and character wfilch distinguished him
IH a man , and reflected honor upon this asso
ciation , of which ho was a charter member.
Ho was a registered lowan clerk , aiid was/In /
the employ ofV. . C. Lano.ot Lincoln , when
he became a member of this association. At
a latu day 1 received the sad Intelligence or
the death of C. C. Sargent , of Fairmont , also
a charter member of this association. He
died February 0 , It 80 , at the ago of S7 years
and : ) months. Further particulars I am un
able to gather.
1 would respectfully recommend that a
memorial page bo given each In the report of
our urocccdlhgs for this year. In closing my
remaiks and passing my gavuMo another ,
permit mo to express to the members of this
association my profoundest thanks for not
only the honor conferred upon mo
in bestowing the olllco ot president
of the association , but especially for
the uniiormly kind and , courteous
and hearty manner in which I have
been supported by you in the discharge of the
new and somewhat trying duties imposed
by tlmt olllco. 1 only regret that iuy want of
experience and nieacio capacity proved a
barrier In the way my serving the associa
tion in a way that would Imvooorne better
and larger results. Yet , it Is grality-
ing to me to Know that the
period ot my ollicial service has not
gone by without witnessing substantial pro
gress lu our association and general business
prosperity among its membership. I sin
cerely trust that the usefulness ot the asso
ciation may become more marked cacli year ,
and at the cud ot tlio first decade of our ex
istence as an organization wo shall have rea
son to leel that the time and labor given lo
ils demands upon us have been amply repaid.
The conclusion of thu president's most
interesting address was greeted with pro
longed applause.
Secretary Ximmcr then read letters
from Oscar Oberg , editor of the "West
ern Druggist. " of Chicago ; also from the
iowa Pharmaceutical association , ea h
expressing their regrets at their inability

A PhnfitmoV
Ono of tlio principal subjects winch
ill come up for dlscrfeslon at tlio session
to-day , will bo 'th # necessity for a
law governing the practice of pharmacy
in this state. At present no such law
obtains. As a consequence in some
places , it is claimed , tlmt the profession
is practiced by people with but the rudi
mentary knowledge of the details. As a
consequence the reputation of the more
reputable and competent practitioners is
injured , and the happiness , oven the
lives of tlio people , ruthlessly endang
To remdoy this growing evil , tlio mem
bers desire to have appointed by law a
state hoard of pharmacy , whoso duty it
shall be primarily lo examine all persons
desiring to not as pharmacist1) ) , granting
permission so to ace only to such art shall
pass a stated examination. It will also
bo their duty to guard over tlio sale of
poisonous drugs , to bo on the watch for
adulterations , and to severely punish
those who may surreptitiously dispose of
deleterious drugs.
The manner of appointing tills board
will bo after the style of the state rail-
rqad commission. 'The secretary of
state , attorney general and auditor will
bo named in tlio law with authority to ap
point secretaries to perform the duties of
the position. _
Charles Hanlcy Gets n lies Broken In
Stopping a Runaway Team.
Mr. Charles Hanley , the Tenth street
grocer , met with a serious mishap in an
endeavor to save two children from
being hurt in a runaway accident yester
day evening. Mr. Gibson , the real estate
dealer , was crossing the tracks on Tenth
street about 7 o'cloclc , when his team be
came frightened by passing trains and
attempted to ran away. He sprang from
his carriage to gut at the horses' heads ,
and iu doing so was thro\vn against a
telegraph polo and temporarily disabled.
The frightened team dashed up Tenth
street , and when just iu front of Mr.
Hanlo.v's store collided with a car
riage occupied by Mr. Stubbendorf
and his two children. The carriage was
upset and the children thrown out. Mr.
Hitnloy , seeing the dangerous position in
which the children had been placed ,
rushed into the street to rescue them. As
ho did so Mr. Gibsons's team suddenly
whirled in his direction , striking him
down and I'raccing ' the broken carriage
over him. Mr. Hry'iley was picked up in
a semi-unconscious condition and re
moved to his homcV , atl018 Pacific street ,
and Drs. Parker apd Darrow summoned

The Pall of Ex-Sonator Thomas W , Terry of
Michigan ,
"Which Uroiight About the
llttln of a Man Who AVns Six-
j. teen Years In tlio United
V States Senate.
Now York World : "It is not very gen
erally known"said a Michigan man yes
terday , "that ox-Senator Thomas W. Fer
ry is an exile from his slate and country.
Ho dare not return until matters penning
against him are either outlawed or set
tled. There is an Indictment against him
for forgery. "
"Up to the time of his defeat tor re
election a few years ago lie passed as n
very ricli man. "
"Yes , but that , was far from the truth.
Ton or Hftocii years ago ho was worth
considerable money. Ho had an interest
with his brother in some Michigan pine
hinds , and together they operated an ex
tensive lumber yard in Chicago. I say
together , hut Thomas never hail any
thing to do with tlio management of the
business. They made considerable mon
ey for a time , and , , as nsmii , their fortune
was overestimated. Reverses came , how
ever , and in addition to this the collator
began leading a very wild lifo at Wash-
ton. Ho spent more than his salary in
dissipation , and became involved iu sev
eral disgraceful seatidals. You remem
ber how he was horsewhipped in his
rooms at thu National hotel oy an irate
young woman and her father. Poor Fer
ry crept under the bed anil cried for
mercy , but his assailants only stopped
when they were completely exhausted.
Thu story told at the time was to tlio ef-
foe.t that terry had insulted the young
lady in some way and that was the meth
od chosen to avenge it. Ferry never
made any complaint , but the father of
the young lady received a note from the
snnator a couple of days after the attack.
He opened it , expecting to iiud at least a
challenge , but instead ho found an annu
al uass lor himself and family over the
Pannsylvatiia railroad. Queer way of
demanding satisfaction , wasn't it ?
"Ferry's exposure would hav ) come
several yearn before it did but from the
fact that lie held n scat in the United
States senate , and if he had been re-
olocled his affairs would have been
hushed up somehow ; but when he be
came a common citi/.cn , with no patron
age at his disposal , then all his creditors
jumped on him. It wis : learned that he.
had been engaged in a , number of very
questionable transactions , among which
was the charge of tryin j to imitate
another man's signature , terry made a
desperate ellbrt to pet back lo the senate ,
and the machine discipline organized by
/Such Chandler in Michigan held his
forces iu line down to the eighty-first
ballot. Then a break came. and. the pro-
scut Senator Palmer was the result.
Ferry lied at once to Earope , and had
scarcely got out of thu country before
warrants1 wore issued for his arrest on
several different counts. That was three
years ago. lie has never returned , and
ho may die in exile. The ex-senator's
brother , however , is devoted to Tomand
he has been trying to build up the for
tunes of the family. He is by far the
better man of the two , and has consider
able business ability and push. I am
told that ho has been fortunate in some
silver mine investments , and may be
come rich again. In that case I suppose
all claims against Thomas whore a crim
inal prosecution could bo brought will bo
settled up , and the exile will find it safe
to return. But lie can never again be a
factor in Michigan politics. Of latu years
lie has become a victim of the morphine
habit , which almost completely under
mined his intellect. "
"Where is ho livinsr ? "
. " 1 believe ho has passed most of his
cVile in Italy , but he has been roaming
nil over Europe. A pjroat ellbrt was
mnilc to persuade President Arthur to
give' Ferry the Uussian mission just after
the death of Minister Hunt , but Mr. Ar
thur concluded it was not best to appoint
a man whb'could ' not visit his own coun
try to present Ins application. Senator
Conger made the effort , I believe , out of
charity. It is a little bit singular that a
man who served eighteen years in the
senate , six -years as president pro torn-
pore of that'body , acting vice president
and acting president tor a day , on tlio
Sunday intervening between Cicn.Grant's
retirement , and President Hayes' inaugu
ration , should find himself an exile from
his own country and : i fugitive from jus
tice. It illustrates the tips and downs of
politics with aye'ngo.ineo. ( "

* --Pittsburg Chronicle-Telegraph : The
luilfcgrown bpy and his cousin , the half-
grown boy of the rural districts , are en-
Vlous of caeli other , inversely as the
square of the seasons , as the mutliomati-
tlo'ns. " 'vpifltl put it. For instance , just
now when llio April showers are falli-ig
nnd llie flowers ara beginning to bloom ,
the city boy sits in the -close schoolrooms
and wishes himself out in the country
where there is good fishing in thu lillle
streams and where there are Mowers in
the woods showing themselves , anil where
there are birds and u thousand other
things that load to his enjoyment. The
country hid is just as desirous of staying
where ho is , .for though ho is in the coun
try the wlioloycar round , he Is just as glade
( o live in llio Minsliinq nnd among tlio
llowors and green fields as the city
boy would be , No.ho don't want any city
mixed up with his lifo when tlio elmrra-
ing spring -weather comes , But tliorct is
u lime when he would like to bo in the
city. When he plans and plans how lie
could get there and what he would do if
ho were there. This is when thu summer
work is over , and the chilling blasts of
winter are felt. The country is a dreary
place in winter , nnd the boy thinks that
if only he could bo fixed like his city
cousin ho would bo supremely happy. To
toll ( ho truth , the boy on u farm has a
hard time of it in the winter. There is
always a lot of work to do which the old
er people seem to think is just thu thing
for the boys , and therefore have lo do it.
True , they get some sleigh-rides and hare
a little fun at school , but it la dreary
lime notwithstanding ; .
The city boy , if his parents arc. well-to-
do , has u great advantage { n the long
run he has a long vacation in the sum
mer , and he can co out and spend it with
liis country cousin. Ho has nothing to
do , and if his uaronts are in a position ( o
live half and half , that is , the winter in
the. city and the summer in the country ,
lie is pretty well provided for. The
country boy can't do anything like this ,
lie lias lee much to do in the winter lo
come into town and have a good time ,
and he is a fortunate boy if ho can get a
few days' visit everyyea'r to tlm oily.
The country boy , it lie don't like farm
life , and not one-half of thorn do not
because they are indolent or anything of
the kind , for they will work hard enough
at what they do like will , in course of
time , drift away from the farm and find
himself clerking in n city More or
working in tlio shops and having a much
harder time of it than he Iuul on the
farm. Vet you could not get him to go
back. Ho may ot out of town occasion
ally and ECO the green fields , and tisli in
the streams us liu did when u boy , but a
week or so is enough , ' back.he comes
to the crowded city , .
Hoys aro'.very queer someway or other ,
and a really cunUmtcd boy is not found
at every turn.oty'ourelbow. . This is the
reason , perhaps , why there are so ninny
diifcontontcd men ih tlio world they are
so many because they did not havs
things to suit them when they were boys
Journalists and Authors "Who ilnvo
Made Fortunes by Literary
M Lorodan Larchoy , a wcll-kitowi
Parisian htoratcur , contributes to the
Monde Illustre some interesting rnminis
ounces and Information in respect of the
earnings , past and present , of French
journalists , novelists , mid playwrighU.
Some of his facts and figures will be In
teresting to English readers. After a
passing allusion to n meeting of writers ,
in which the opinion was unanimously
expressed that a man could make a bet
ter livelihood with his pen in Franco than
anywhere else , M. Larehoy continues
thus :
"Thirty years ago journalism was al
most or wholly unproductive , llotwccti
18)0 ) and 1&17 , La Silhouette and Lo Cor-
saire paid for contributions at the rate of
C centime ( H contsa ) lino. ChamiilleuryV
'Satan Chico Culllou , brouuh him from
S3 to 23 francs. And observe that ho
was ono ot the most famed members of
the staff. Mtirgor , Uusquct , Viurd , Vitu ,
Nicollo , and Woill , who were also popu
lar , had to turn outnlles of'copy' to earn
CO francs a month. Their great ambition
was to got an article into the Charivari ,
whoso opulent manager paid for articles
nt tnc rate of tea centimes ( ! 3 cents ) a
"In those days the Journal do Dcbats
was in advance of all its contemporaries ,
and paid 100 francs for n 'loader. ' Do-
twoon 1850 and 1855 'serious * news
papers usually paid 15 centimes a lino.
Men worked for the smaller newspapers
for little or nothing. Sometimes settle
ments were made 'in kind , ' In 1854 a
potty journalist , whose name 1 withhold ,
received in compensation for two years'
steady services 10 fauces , a faded earnet ,
three bottles of toilet vinegar , an india-
rubber overcoutand three cigar-lighters ,
with Hint nnd tinder. All of these arti
cles had been taken in exchange for
advertisements by the manager , who was
his own canvasser ; times were hard.
"Journalism became lucrative toward
the endof the second empire. In 1805 an
upward movement in prices began. La
Pclile Prcsse , a popular journal , allowed
its chroniquour , Tony Uoviljon , ' . ' -1.000
francs a ear. The Pelil Moniteur after
ward cave the sumo salary to Les Lospcs ,
in uduilinu to a percentage on thu sale of
the paper. The Monde lllustro rated
'copy1 from its four courriuristes at10
cent.mes n lino. The Figaro paid
handsome prices , and M. do
Villemessaut occasionally increased
them liberally. The rate per
line ranged from 15 to 75 centimes ;
reporters' work was quoted at 30 cen
times , and feuillctons brought between
15 and t0 ! centimes. The largest salaries
paid by the Figaro of the period do not
exceed 18,000 trancs. Thcfio , however ,
carry with them a share of the prolits ,
which bring from M.OOO to ISO.OCO'franes
to each holder of the privilege. M.
Wollf , M. Mngnurd , and two or throe
other contributors are thus favored in
accordance with the provisions of M. do
Villcmcssant's will. The leading article
in the Figaro usually brings 200 francs ,
and 500 Irancs in exceptional cases. M.
Zola lately received 000 francs. The'Gil
Hlas gives M. Roehefurt 500 francs , and
he lately had a contract with L'lntraiisi-
guant by which he was guaranteed 1,000
francs lor a daily leader and some minor
articles. "
A few of the French weeklies and
monthlies , according to M. Larehey.have
proved immensely remunerative. La
lU-.viies des Deux Mondcs , after a long
spell of poverty , linally paid its .stock
holders an annual dividend equal to the
face vulun of the stock. This state of af
fairs astounded old .liaron do Rothschild ,
who subscribed for the capital stock out
of charity , and ho was wont to repeat
whenever a dividend was declared : "It
isn't possiblel 'I'll oy're not literary
men ! "
"As a rule litterateurs , " observes M.
Lnrehey , ' 'do not shine through their
ability'as men of business. Having
formed a .societv , however , they may
conduct their business most admirably.
They receive yearly 200,000 francs for au
thors' rightson the reprinting of works
in the newspapers only , and they pay to
115 members , aged 00 years or more , an
annual pension of 500 francs in addition
to special awards for assistance. Some
of the socictaires gather for the reprint
ing of their feuillotons from 800 to 1,500 ,
francs a month.
"If the sources of a novelist's profits
are looked into it will be seen that ho has
four means of adding to his revenue.
Firstly , by the initial publication of his
work in fetiillcton form ; secondly , by its
ropublicalion ii | book form ; thirdly , by
reprinting it in newspapers throughout
France and abroad ; fourthly , by ils adap
tation , with or without assistance , for the
slage. A newspaper proposing to secure
the services of a successful novlist must
nay him itt the rate of 20 sons a lino.
This ( innlois paid iiO.OOO francs 10,000 ,
francs more than was paid for 'Xuna'
to print 'Pot lioiiillo' us a fetiillcton.
Uut 'Naiiu , ' which bus reached its
edition , sold far better in book form. M.
Zola bus received from his publishers
thus far 75,000 francs , and an illustrated
edition yields him besides 20,000 Irancs.
MM. Hector , Mulot , lu liotegoboy and
Adolph IScloi nil commanded 1 franc a
line. Hut prices are exceptional.
"Littro's big dictionary brought Him in
his lifetime upward of 500,000 f nines. The
principal publishers pay for novels at the
rate ol 10 to IK ) cents centimes on each
copy sold for ! l francs 50 centimes. Dan-
dot's 'Sapho' is the only work that has
run through eighty editions of one thou
sand copies each in a twelvemonth , the
author getting GO centimes for each copy
sold. If a writer's name has no weight
I'.isj ' thun 10 centimes u copy oa sales is
ofti'ii paid him. "
According to Ln ( Jaulols the novel of
'Lo ' Maitre de.s Forges" had reached in
the spring of 1818 its 112th edition , 1,000
copies being reukoned lo the edition. At
thu rate of 50 centimes a volume M. Ob-
net had received 50,01)0 ) francs. Thu iirst
100 purforni'incivj ot the play founded on
the work brought M. Olinet73,1-10 trancs ,
plus .1,000 , trams' worth of tickets. Thu
printed play nutted Him -10,000 francs , So
lie had received in tolo 171,110 francs for
bis achievement , and this sum must have
been inuroasud to 200,000 francs by royal
ties from the provinces.
M. de Hornier inude out of "La Fille do
Roland" 120,000 francs. M. Sardou's re
turns from < 4lora" and "Thedora"
amount thus far to upward of 000,000
francs , The Iirst ono hundred represen
tations of "" nutted Alexander Du
mas 70.000 francs , and under M , Perrln's
management the Comediu often paid him
100,0)i.i francs a year. The same theater
gave. Victor Hugo 118,000 , francs in a
twelvemonth , and when "Lo Monde on
Fouls' Knnuio" reached its two hundredth
night M. Piillluron had bcon puid between
140,003 , and 150,000 for roytiilim.
A small work , according toM , Larchoy ,
brings someliincs as much as a larger
one. "LeCamr.Htla Main" will bowirth

CHICAGO , May 11 [ Special Telegram , ]
Weakness and lower prices \vcro the rule
everywhere on 'Change to-day , the nmiket
being In more respects than nnon repetition
of yesterday's. Consols , as then , started the
decline by coming In tour points higher than
they closed , licspoiislvo thereto Juno wheat
opened at 773 ( ! ! .7"Kc , lower than It closed.
Kor awhile It llnctiiatcd around 7"Ke , but ut
terly failed not only to advance beyond this
figure but to keep up to It , Some heavy sell-
In ; ; by local traders began almost as soon a.i
business did , and their numbers Increased as
the session grow. They so'd right nnd left ,
hammering Juno down to TOJ c. From
13 o'clock on it lluctnated closely
a stiado higher liguro than this ,
but all the tlmo It was weak and
heavy. Nat Jones was a very heavy seller In
all the principal pits wheat , corn anil pro
visions. In corn ho Is alleged to have sold
the crop. Such demand us came from early
traders was In the nature of short covering.
KelV.ynsky & Co. , of Now York , threw little
light on the actuil situation by saying that
sales of export wheat in that port are from
l(31Ko ( below cash market , so great Is the
anxiety and eagerness to get wheat moving.
No foreign country , according to the same
authority , can afford to buy Amnrlcau wheat
ami am raising all of their own they possibly
can. On the early decline Now York par
ties were said to bo soiling a good deal of
wheat ho re. Weakness was little Ics.s ap

meantime having picked up to 77c , and at
1 o'clock felt about steady at the decline
COUN AND OATS Speculation In corn Is
on the increase. Dally speculations are
heavy In the aggregate and operators llml
they usually have clearer margin for profit or
loss in the lltictuatlons. The market closed
steady to-day at about yestoi day's last 11 e-
urcs. Oats were active but somewhat lower
lor cash and for futures.
PnovisioNs 1'rovlslons were active and
better prices ruled. The tone of the market
was strong at the opening , then weak , and
later very strong under the Influence ol lib
eral buying by speculative brokers , who
rarely represent any but strong parties. An
advance of 1-Ke in pork , 'J > ie In laid and Co
in ribs was established.
