It was a deed from J.esso Lowe , then
nmj-orof this city , conveying to Mm.
Flavillu E. Sawyer , for tlio sum of two
dollars ami llfly cento , lot 4 , block 148 , in
this city. The instrnmcntis dated 18.)7and
is printed upon the blue legal paper which
was then used. The * document 'wS : ( then
placed on record , and bears evidence of
that fact In the endorsement on the back
by Mr. Tlios. O'Connor , then county
clerk and still a resident in tins city.
The deed was granted thirty years ago ,
and what the object in recording it a
second time could not this morning be
ascertained oy tlio Hitreporter. : . One of
thu gentlemen behind the county clerk's
bur , said ho thought there was
something and thai recording the
instrument would straighten _ it. up.
The properly Is accurately described as
the number and block aforesaid , "ac
cording to tins original survey of A. D.
Jones , and lithographed by tlio Council
lllufl's and Nebraska terry company. "
If the lot above recorded bo the same as
is known as lot 4 , block 148 , it refers lo
that on the sontht'ast corner of llnrnoy

The parishioners who have been in at

city have thus far been doing si > without
the advantages of incorporation under
the htalc law. As they propose shortly
lo commence the erection of a now
church and to make other improvement ? ,
it was thought advisable to organize
under the law. Accordingly their arti

lik'd with the county clerk 'I ho iucor-
poralors arc Bishop O'Connor , Hev. 11.

be fifty years , unless otherwise deceased

A Twilight. Sceno.
She stood on the corher of Fif ( couth
and Dodge , near a party of young men
who were quietly smoking their cigars
and enjoying the Sabbath-like peace that
prevaduu Ihe locality. Her attitude was
one of picturesque beauty , seductive in
its outlines and enhanced all the more by
a dross of that peculiar sott , clintring ma
terial that j-o generally adds to tlio charm
of a liandsomo woman. She appeared to
bo waiting for some ono , for , with a
graceful little movement she would occa
sionally look up or down the streets , au.l
then once moro relapse into a position
whore all but her face was visible to
the party. Night came on apace.
With Uiu gathering darkness the
passers by grow less iremient ,
and the discordant howl of the disap
pointed newsboy gradually grow faint 111
the distance. The light kept fading and
with it the uiiceitain identity of the vis
ion of feminine loveliness becomes more
taiihili/.in to the young inuii , as they
crane their necks to observe her more
closely. "Such a perfect attitude , " mur
murs ono. "What graceful car
riage , " says another. "Her face
must bo that of a goddess , " ac
quiesced tlio last one , tailing in
with the spirit of enchanted admira
tion. They" noticed that * was becom
ing moro and moro impatient , her rest
less movements more and more frequent ,
until at lust , as a little girl came up the
street , she turned her face , fairly" shining
in the darkness , and cxulalmud with a
Southern accent :

The charm was broken , and nothing
could bo heard but the subdued pulling
of three cigars , or Iho unmusical sound of

OMAHA , Juno 4. To the Editor of thu
IUi : : : On the Tith ot JIay-18Stl , Isont a
a petition to the city council requesting
porno repairs to bo made at the corner ol
Tenth and lo ras streets. The commu
nication was referred to the committee
on streets and alloys with power to
act. Mr. Manvillu handed the paper to
tliu street , commissioner and ordered the
work done as required.Mr. . Kaspor ,
another member .of tho'committeo told
mi ) that he required the street commis
sioner to do the work ( these are his oy-
act words ) afterward 1 "met Mr , Manvdle
and ho told mu in the presence of the inspectors
specters and several other citi/cus that
he would sco the street commissioner
again and jret him to do the work. Mr.
Lowr.v , councilman from the llrst ward ,
asKcd Mr , Manville on several occasions
to see that the repairs wcro made , but
all have failed to have the work douo.
On Juno 1st the committea consisting of
Manville , Kaspor and Ford , made the
following report : "After carefully ex
amining the premises wo see no practical
way of preventing the overflow of com
plainant's lot but to curb and gutter Dor-
cas street in front of complainant's lot or
for said complainant to till Ids lot which is
now about six feet bulow the street , . " No
man or set of men who have sense
enough to keep them from being inmates
ot a lunatic asylum would make such a
report. The Street' is uqtbrought to u
permanent grade , and 1 doubt that tliero
is a grade established qnjhe street as yet.
Voi'5' good idea to curb , and gutter a
street without an established grade !
Forty yards of tilling will complete the "
repairs- . 7 , EU
An Important Decision.
( Jen. Crook yesterday cccived from the
nrdcpartmcnt an important dcoisibh
on a point brought up by Col. Morrow ,
of the 'IVcnty-lirst infantry , statlbncd
at Fort Sidney. A certain sergeant Ih
that regiment had been guilty of gross
neglect and cruelly in the treatment of
his child. The matter became the rnlk
of the regiment. The commander of th6
company to which the sergeant belonged
did not make any complaint of the man's
conduct , and did not oven deign to notice
it. The matter was called .to the atten
tion of Col. Morrow , and ho de
termined to reduce the sergeant to
tlio ranks if such a thing were possible !
Accordingly ho wrote to Lieut , uon.
Sheridan , inquiring if 'the commander of
a regiment could reduce a non-cohimig-
sioned olllccr to tlio ranks without the
request or consent of the subordinate
commander of the company to which.
such olllccr belongs. The reply received
to-day is to tlio oilect that , a regiment
commander cannot take such a step. As
a consequence , Col. Morrow Will be
unable to suspend the sergeant.
linking Powder Tramps.
The danger to the public health from
the. indiseriiilmate use of the many lime
nnd aliimii baking powders of commerce
has been so fully exposed that everybody
desires to avoid thorn. As "forewarned
is forearmed ; " housekeepers will thank
us for apprising them of the special
efforts at present being made to
of such powders in this vicinity.
J'ho proprietors of some of the worst of
these powders are now going from house
to house , trying by means ot a trick , , or
so-called test , with heat and water , to
show that their article is as gooil as the
Hoynl Bakimr Powder , making the com-
pai'ison with this brand because every
body rocogni/.es it to be absolutely pure
and wholesome , the object , of course ,
being to supply their own goods in place
of the Uoval , ' housekeepers have
for so many years rolled upon to pull' up
the morning biscuit , and to make the
light , palatable , and wholesome roll ,
cake , and pastry , for which it is famous.
The housekeeper will do well to bo on
her guard against these baking power
tramps. Every intelligent person knows
that any goods peddled from house to
house in this manner , or that are given
away in samples , or sought to bo intro
duced by secretly traducing the character
of other goods well known to be pure
and reliable , have no merits of their own ,
and have failed to find purchasers
through legitimate means
Wo are informed , ns a matter of fact ,
that one of these tramus is trying to in
troduce u powder that has been found by
tlio government chemist to be 11.85 per
cent lime , wliilo the other peddles a pow
der that is ! ! 0 per cent alum one , a pow
erful caustic , the other a corrosive poison.
No such tricks or jugglery will bo apt
to deceive any intelligent person. The
housekeeper who has used her Itoyal
Baking Powder over since lie discarded
cream of tarter ami soda , knows more
about its qualities than all tlio tramps in
the country can teacli her. The crucical
test to which she has put the Hoynl Halv
ing 1'owilor the test of actual and suc
cessful work in the preparation of pure
and wholesome foot } , under which it has
never failed is entirely satisfactory to
her. She has always had "good
luck" with it in making light ,
sweet and delicious bread , biscuit and
cake , and has placed it , to stay , at the
head of her housekeeping favorites. She
knows that it has been officially ap
proved by the government chemists as
the best , and wo imairmu that the baking
powder tramp who attempts lo supplant
its place in her confidence will Hiiu this u
bad year for his business.

"Wiat.prohtlmth } n man of nil his
) nlor which ho tnkctli under tlio sun ? "
Eccl. 1:3. :
A.wcigJitv question docs this text liisti-
tutor-a question which must lind nn echo
in every head , For since the day when
the divine voice went forth from Kdcn ,
tl6clnrmg to our first parents , "by the
swcnt of thy fnoo nnd shall thou cut thy
bread , " hmnnn toil nnd liuninn Inbor
have never ceased4 since then each mom-
b'nrof'thc ' human family , endowed with
stronrftlf , has wielded Ma strong nrin , or
plied his busy hands , or bent his skilful
lingers in sonic laboroiis work.
The' dignity of labor can bo easily
traced through its various evolutions. In
the first 'ngos of the world , labor was
deemed most honorable when directed to
the tllhtcd of the soil , but the workers In
metnls and the workers in precious stud's ,
were but the next degree nUo ve the bonds ,
men. During the times of the olden re
publics the tine arts rose to high esteem-
but rather us the ornaments of their pros
perity , than us evidences of their skill
and labor. After the dawn of the
brighter ujro of modern times the spirit
of chivalry and the madness of the cru
sades so seized the public mind that nil
men of spirit ami genllo birth \voro in
fected with the enthusiasm of the times ,
and seized the lance nnct donned the
corslet , anil led forth their vassals to in
cessant warfare. This engendered a
feeling averse to labor of any kind ; the
mechanical arts , except such as related
to the calling of arms , were everywhere
neglected , and il came lo bo considered
a reproach to be cnllod nn artisan. The
profession of arms alone was esteemed
honorable. In the countries of t lie old
world the feeling still prevails. Fettered
as they arc by castes and classes , the
mechanic is still subjected to the tyrauuj'
and scorn of the higher class.
lint thu mechanic in this country has
already had accorded to him iv higher
station than in any other climn , and Dy
ing from the tyranny ami oppression of
the old world , the arts of industry have
here found a renting place where their
votaries have been honored and re
spected. Their right to an 'equal esteem
and respect with other clns.scH has been
conceded ; even legislative bodies of gov
ernments powerful and strong are not
averse to appoint committees to hear nnd
adjust grievances claimed by the labor
ing element against capital its claimed-
to-be foe.
And yet , notwithstanding tlio formida
ble array between labor and capital , we
can hardly fail to discern that through
the medium of labor the world has
rcntH'd inaiilfold advantages. The world
has imwoyed. and improvement is ihe
badge of civilization nnd tin uneontnulic-
tor.y emblem of human progress.
Hut look to the countless millions who
have labored and labored , and Ihen gone
to everlasting rest , do you sec thu prolit
of the laborer ? Do you sec n fair recom
pense for his life's struggles and aspira
tions ? Surely the morsci of bread can
not bo the piny remuneration for labor ,
nor can refreshing sleep bo the only pay
ment for his toil. The birds of thu air
and the beasts of the forests labor not ,
and yqt they cat , and sloop , and enjoy
themselves. Where thoii hasmnii the ad
vantage ? Well may the royal preacher
ask the question , "What prolit has a man
of all of his labor which he takcth under
the sun ? "
Few men can look back to the labor of
their lives ami disclose with truthful and
thankful pridu : "This great work have I
accomplished ; I have achieved a lasting
worJc a work tertilc in results , conducive
to the good of my fellow-creatures and to
the irlory of God. " Men who can make
so proud an assertion have , in the ap
plause of their conscience , a suflicicnt
prolit for lifelong labor ; and who knows
ho\v irreat a 'reward is in store for them
in the world beyond this ?
Uut such men are scarce scarce as the
'planets among the countless stars. , Of
these exceptions we shall not speak. We
shall couliue our remarks to thu laborer
of every day life. , the rank and lile of the
human army , the workman , ns we see
him in the ifcld , the factory , the shop , the
store or the market.
"What prolit has a man of all his labor
which he takcth under the sun ? " What
is the aim and object of labor ? You will
say to obtain food , raiment nnd shelter.
No. There must be some higher object.
Hut you may ask : What higheroojuct can
the workman have ? Ho rises at early
dawn , cats his frugal menl , proceeds to
work , toils hard nil day long , concentrat
ing all his energies upon labor , returns
home at sunset , fatigued , worn out and
weary. He takes another meal , perhaps
spends an hour with his family , and his
exhausted nature sinks lo rest. Quo day
is like another. Labor , food , sleep ; labor ,
food , sleep , follow in unbroken succes
sion. All "the Inbor of man is for his
mouth , and .yd the appetite is not filled. "
lint can tliis bo nil ? No ; labor has n
.spiritual object besides. Labor is thu
touchstone of man's conduct. It is the
test ot man's honesty and purpose. Tlio
work of the hands betrays the working
of the heart. Thegood servant , laboring
for his dally hire , gives all to his master
all that Ins diligent hands can produce ,
however small the wages. Thu bad ser
vant says , when the day is but half over ,
"J have done my task ; my master pays
mu but little enough ; what I have done
is much . " So labor
too already. _ discov
ers thu faithful , and sets its mark on him.
The bad servant can never servo God
well ; out ho who labors well and honestly
for his earthly superior servos his ap
prenticeship for the future service of u
Divine Master.
And moro : Labor is the test of our np-
prcointioii of those powers which God
has given us. We are not all servants ,
yet we should nil labor us if the taskmas
ters worn at hand. Our time is not our
own , our faculties are not our own ; they
nro tools lent to us by our ( treat Task
master , nnd wu are hold accoimtabh : for
thorn. Our faculties are given to us to
bo employed in performing our part in
the world with energy ami good will.
"Whatsoever thv hand lindoth to do , "
say tho. proucher , " "do it with all tliy
might , " Bo not .satisfied witii mediocrity.
Work and try to improve In work ; at all
time ) ; endeavor to excel. It is tlio duty of
a man to do his level best.
And whenever otir faculties , whether
exercised through the medium of mind or
hand , are fuitlitiilly employed there Uiu
blessing of God will bo found. This fact
is best provenby thu demonstration that
in those counties , whore the greatest
amount of labor is requisite to obtain the
necessaries of life , wo Iiml thu most vigo
rous , healthy and athletic inhabitants ,
On the other hand , where nntnro has
douo most for man in providing for his
bodily wants , wo Ilnd him most destitute
of the solid comforts of life. In the high
lands of Scotland , on the mountains of
Circassia , amidst the hills of Norway ,
the .people arc happier , by far more ro-
jiusj , nnd moro cnorgotio. than in o Humi
liate Spain , or degraded Italy. In this
couttry ) , < rock-bound Now Knghuid , the
lone rnugo of the ; Alleghany mountains ,
nndthoir numerous spurs and valleys ,
support a much moro race of men
than the sunny south. U hen the body
becomes weakened by indolence , or by
luxury , the mind usually suffers with it.
The , energies become torpid , the intel
lectual powers are not cultivated anil the
whole man becomes enervated for want
of nption. , . . . .
And' still tlujre is something higher
which can bo attained by the workingmen -

the various material gifts nnd failings ns
found in tin ; various classes of human
society and that is , education. The
same progro.-m'o evolution through
which labor derived it.s prcM'.nl deserved
respect and appreciation , is illustrated
bv the onward strides of education , lu
thu ninth century education meant
holiness , lie who understood the latin
prayers ho murmured , who could rend
the bible or philosopher * , 01 , at least ,
parts of them , who could write a letter or.
at least , put his name under one , and
who full nil his energy exhausted , all his
aspirations fulfilled bv so doing , ho was
nu educated man. The greatest states
men nnd generals of the ngo hoped one
dny , wlu-n their worldly task was done ,
to cuter this superior circle ; Charlemagne
was over sixty when lie began to lenrn
writing. In the fourteenth century edu
cation meant courage. When a man
could man ago the wildest horse ,
could dance in full armor , could
hit the front knob of his enemy's
helmet so surely that cither the man was
thrown or his Inncc split , and when ho
dared in confidence upon these acquire
ments to cross the desert where the Arabs
roamed about , or to penetrate the forests
haunted by the trolds , and elfs , then ho
was an educated man nnd though IIH
achievements might be very small , such
ns those of Richard Cojur-do-Lion , yet
his fame was very groat. In tlicoiglitcrnth
century up to tlio time of Voltaire ,
education meant pedantry. He who
knew how of ton the loiter "Alpha" occurs
in the Pentateuch , what was the dilVer-
cnco between an K < ryptiun or Assyrian
pair of slippers , the name , birthday nnd
mneo of Horace's grandmother's aunt ,
lie was an object of ndmifation nnd
reverence , for lie was an educated man.
In this ago , however , thanks to the be
nign endowments of civilization , educa
tion has a more rational ollicu to t'nllill.
Pedantry is no more considered an acqui
sition in the real educated , practical man
of the world. Manuscripts and scrolls ,
once the only source of nttainiug
knowledge , and which was the exclusive
property oj Ihe privileged fowhave given
to tiic myriads of well-bound books sent
out from the printing press and obtain
able by persons of all grade of socicl.v.
It is through this medium that lean per
ceive the advent of an era , when the
strifes and contentions , formidably ar
rayed m the two hosts capital and la
bor will disappear ; when the laboring
clement will , througirthe medium of ed
ucation , cast a bright light , u more con
tented ga/c upon the unknown , and yet
wise decree , which ordained a classifica
tion of society. It will be then that those
occupying thu position of employer will
recognize the rights of employe , and the
latter , in time , labor zealously and faith
fully in the interest of the former , thereby
both will further the course of humanity
and civilization.
1 need not add that , labor oven mean ,
servile labor may be ennobled by its
conscientious performance. The prolit
of the labor is not the mere food or
drink or shelter which form the incentive
for work , but the eternal reward , fore
shadowed here on earth by our self-
approbation , and realized in heaven by
thu approbation of our Heavenly Father.
Mice the clay ligures of the artist , which
may bo placed m any posture and attired
in any costume , labor is susceptible alike
of any attitude or any guise. Labor may
grovel in the dust or crouch to vice , or it
may aspire to the highest virtues and lo
their heavenly reward. Labor maybe
wrapped in the rags of falsehood or
clotned in the royal gard of righteous
ness and truth.
And think not that the fruits of labor
are only to be reaped by the grunt ones
on earth , by the king , the statesman , thu
philanthropist , or tlio sage. The labor
of thu lowly , too , has it.s eternal record.
Thnro are stars without number in the
mighty firmament which mortal eyes can
barely see.but which wo know nro larger ,
immeasurably larger than the brightest
