A liltli ) casual observation regarding I ho recent contracts let on state printing and the bills therefor will further illua- trato the elegant pool that wa < btiihlcd by the Omaha Republican anil llcr.ihl ami tins St.ito Journal company. It would have been butter if the state board of printjng had violated HIP law and let the prlnlingof Iho reports of thn state officers go by the board rather than awarded lliu contract on the figures of a pool , but the board has the time yet to knock tinbig - priced scheme on printing the liou- rolls and senate lilos in the head unit stop the scheme. The cost of printing thoieports of .state ollicors two years ago amounted tolIOil.)7 , ! ) , and this was done at a reg ular rate without oven the competition of bidders , yet under the contracts as let the past week , allowing for all increase , the amount of work that was done two years ago under the present contracts will cost fully $1,000 , an increase without warrant and scarcely without parallel in the his- toryef monstrous prices paid tlioeo pre cious printing companies in the days of the oust. Itut if tiioso lignrcs are extrav agant , a Httln comparison on the Hgurc- for printing hou.so rolls and scnato tile- * , as submitted , will show an even greater reaching into tliu hip-pocket of thu state. Tuts cost of printing the semite tiles two years ago was $1,371 , and for printing the Wise rolls $1.018 , a total of 1'SD. , Now , then , if the lowest bid , ns submitted for tins work at the present lime and in thu hands of the printing committee , is ac cepted ami the contract awarded upon it , thu frame number of scnato tiles and house rolls as printed at the last ties-toil would cost during the coming session $11.430in ! increase on this same amount oi work over work heretofore of ?

All this shown up the delightful plan of the threi ) papers mentioned to avoid honest competition , and a glaticu at thu bid : shows how handsomely they were dove tailed together , and a fact in connection might bu mentioned and that is , ono 01 two of the otlior bidders were in the mosi cold blooded manner possible led intr thu pool and satiated with those parts ol the awards that bad no big bonus in them.

Lincoln's midwinter boom i.s prcsont 111 the city to-day and every man. from cap ! talist to day laborer , recognizes the fad that the outlook for the coming spring is very bright , indeed , for tliq capital city and that thu faith of the fathom is buitijj visited upon tliu generations who twenty years alter the founding of the city num ber themselves among Iho 35,000 soul ; that comprlsu the population. The loca tion of thu Nubraska Methodist soniinarj that was secured by thu diligent work of Lincoln citi/.ons Is not thu only boom that has comu to thu fulfillment of thu present month. This university , however over , is a much greater boom than is ap parent at thu Unit glance , for aside from an investment of $250.000 in the plant am * endowment , it will bo constantly from this time henceforth a Mecca for Metho dint means , in which thu ohuroli in thu statu will take pride In depositing wealth for its future progress and advancement , Tlio plans for this institution of learning are on a much gruiter plan than the ma jority of people iinderMiind , for it eon templates nothing less than being a uni versity for the entire northwest , nol limited to the boundaries of the state bul a school that in thn coming years it is ox peeled will maku the Cornell of thu west , u national bohool in prominenen and popularity , nnd an institution of learning - ing that will locate Lincoln as a scat ol learning to the entire country , With tin Matu itiiivpr.-ity richly endowed as it h by thu state and Urn Methodist university , Lincoln will bu n city of schools as well as a city of railroads. Another evidence of coming prosperity in Lincoln is ovi- - denciid in the fact of thu heavy pur- uliases made by A. 1' ' } . Ton/.ulin that have been noted largely heretofore.

A Tain of Adventure , Love ami lirooUlyn Citi/.en : Wo aiv indubted tea a ticorgia paper for Ihis tale trom re.il life- About two years before the war , near a pretty and substantial residencu clo e to a prosperous little town , a beav- tifnl young girl about fourteen wa- sleep ing in a hammock srvvung from two stately oaks in a grove. She was a pretty picture of innocence and grace , nml won the admiration of the passer.i-bjv In a meadow to the roar , a fat , meek- ovejl cow reclined in thu shade , rumi nating upon the food she had gathered in the cool of the morning. lint what has the cow got to do with the sleeping gal , is propounded. Wait and see. Across Ihc road fiom the house , the girl and the cow is n meadow , a branch running through it , and coming up the branch , wa a boy with a gnu. When withinVme hundred yards of the girl , : r.id about one hundred and fifty from -thecow , theuoy fired at a bird , which How on unhurt , but the cow icceived a pretty strong dose of shot. She imme diately rose in fright and dashed through the irrovc , caught the girl and hammock on her horns , and rushed with her shriek- injr victim about the lot. The torrilied girl became silent , and the crowd ot relatives and fnondn in pur suit thought she was dead. The wild fury of the cow as she rushed around soon toro the netting loose , and thu girl dropped unconscious to the ground , un hurt. She was picked up and taken into the house , and on examination only a few binises were toiind. The boy , thinking ho was the innocent cause of the killing 9f the young girl , dis appeared. All vestige of him vanished. It was thought that liu had perished by his own hand , but about six years after the war a travel-stained stranger was in thu town , inrmiring for persons , most of whom had bcon swept away by the war. After a long search thoslrangor found an old man on a load of wood and in con versation with him learned where one of the parties ho was in search of lived , a few miles out ot town. Ho went there , made himself known and proved to be the boy of the gun' . The people ho found were tils father and mother , who hud mourned him for dead for eight years. Tim boy had been in South America , got rich , and , yearning for the love of the old folks , returned to the desolated homo of his childhood and madu his loved ono comfortable. For the first time 'then , hearing that the girl was uninjured , ho called on her , found her pretty , good and a first class homo woman , llu put in with a will , got her Ininrt as his on , and the old folks' consent , and has been for the last twelve or tourtcun years ono of the loading mun of his section.

VETERANS WHO ARE YOUNG , It Doesn't ' follow That Men arc Old Because They are Seventy. WORK IS NOT V/HAT KILLS Mm In Vljjor of ailtul and lloily ns OctoRCtiarlain Worry Makes A e Pastor Than Vcars. New York Situ : In I he year tS ? " < , w hen he was j-cvcnlv years old , Nathaniel Macon icsigned his scat in the United Stales senate. He did so simply because he had determined to retire from publio oflico when lie reached that age , if he litcdo long lie wns a strongman. JefVcrson spoke of him as "the last of the Romans. " Ho had tor nearly fifty years held office , and had been sixteen years a fonator when ho resigned. Itis friends urged him to reconsider hi determina tion , as-crting that his mind and body wore a * good as they ever were , lie re plied thai ho know it , and thai ho pro posed for thai reason to quit public life before his mind became so feeble thatvhe would not know when il was time to re tire. Yet ho had ton years of health and mental vigor before him , his powers not failing until he was almost eighty years of age. lint Macon < -ccmed to haw been strongly impressed with the senti ment so prc\alcnt in thi'- country , tlwl seventy years were the limit of a man's usefulness , and that he hould shut him self up and wail for death when he reached this ago. Yet , example after ex ample might be given lo &how that seventy years find many men in the pos session of vigorous minds and fairly vigorous bodies , and lhat some of the best work thai our famous men have dene lias been accomplished alter I hey have passed lhat scriptural bugbear , three scons and ten. Alienists and other physicians who make a study of mental and nervous dise.v-ns arc aware that the apprehension and gloom with which many men permit themselves to be nillictcd as they approach preach the seventieth birthday , have much more lo do with weakening and demoralizing - moralizing I hem than the burden of years. "If n man in good health , and of sound constitutional heritage , unimpahod by bad habits , would forgot his age , he would bo quite likely to run far oyor the seventy year limit before ho finds his mind or body burdened by year * , * ' .said the late Dr. Ktcard , The coming of birthdays anil the celebration bration of them inako many uion think that their days arc soon to bo numbered , becan-,0 the Scriptures say they ought lo be when seventy , vcararu reached. And when such splendid examples of well- pre-crvcd , vigorous minds as Von Moltke's , or lliiniarck's , or Lc-scp.s s , or < jtad-Hone's , or the late Lord Deacons- field' ? , or Palmeriton's , or Brougham's , are instanced to show that men past seventy may reasonably hope to do work that U-lls greatly in the making of his tory or in the perfecting of a career , il is too apt lo be answered that such ex amples are exceptional , and , besides , the climate of Kuropo may favor longevity , while the bracing atmosphere ot America tends to c\hau l men early. Yet we can match , and overmatch , Ojoat Hritam or the continental countries with examples of octogenarians of splen did \ijror and pcrfeeely sustained powers of mind and body. There are too many of these illustrations thai could bo cited tojnstifi the belief that they ate neces sarily exceptions. They ratnfer show that the chances are greatly in favor of years of continued strength and mental vigor for him who is approaching the .scrinliir.il limit in the unimpaired po-- session of his faculties and thai tlio man who passes his .seventieth birthday in good health is just entering llie youth of old age , and not its limit. When David Dudley l-'ield is seenwalk- ing erect , with vigorus slops , bright eyes and ruddy cheeks down Uroadway , doing his little orcather of two or three miles daily , and working in his law office like anyjoung fellow just lulmittcd to the bar , no one would think of calling him old. Ho is not. His years are over eighty , but the weaknesses that make old age arc not his , and ho is , therefore , not old. How is it that he keeps so young ? people ask. Well , there is a splendid in heritance from a vigorous ancestry , a lifo in which no sight drafts on old age have been drawn , the cultivation of the power of rcsisling all tendency to worry or anxiety , the habit of daily exorcise lii the tresii air , and Ihc giving of free rein to a sense of humor. Barring lliu accidents of lifo to which all mortals are liable , Mr. Field ought to bo able to count on ten or a do/.en years more of activity. Hut that will make him ninety , it may be said. Yet Mr. 1'ield would not have lo look far lo find lhat men of vigor , good sound minds in pretty tough bodies , arc to be found wiio have passed thuir ninetieth year or closely approached it. There was his long time friend and neighbor. L'eter Cooper.whose mind was unclouded at ninety , who was a presidential candi date when long past eighty ( and a very respectable vole ho gol. lee ) , ami who said lo the writer that if ho lived tun years more ho would see the people ac cepting his views on thu government'4 ' power and duty of alone issuing paper currency , and on the national bank sys turn. Uhis vigorous man was not far wronsr , oither. Then there was Mr. Field's other friend , Thurlow Weed , whoso mind was acute and memory un impaired , and whoso bodily vigor was good at oighly-eiuht. Thuru was the lute .fudge Waldo , once congressman , oneu Judgu of the Con necticut biipreiiio bench , with whom Mr. Field hns had many a legal bout. Ho went oil' the Conneelieiil bench because ho was ficxonly year.s old , and at once look up a lucrative prautico , which hu diil not quit till nearly ni.icty. Then there is that remarkable man whoso ancestry , like Mr. Ficld'n becumo strong mon ho- cause thi'v lived hardy lives on New Kng- land hills , Colonel ( Jeorge L i'urkins , of Morwieli , Conn , Ho is a tall dignified man. His cheeks aru ruddy. Thorn are few wrinkle.- his face. His eyes nro not blurred , and they lijiht up with tint cnjouncnl of fun. Hu steps oil'from his house HKo a young .soldier , and walks nearly a milu to his otllcc , and ho 1ms sonod for inoro than liftv years as treas urer of the Norwich & Worcester Kail- road company. Last summer ho started out with his wito on a little pleasure trip. Yet Colonel Perkins is now in his ninety- ninth year. Birthdays don't annoy him , and ho fully ovpecU lli.it his centurv of years will Imd him as usual at his desk. < ! oed constitution , uxcroli-o , the habit of content , fondness for fun , and the so ciety of young people have kept Colonel I'erkins young. Ho simply would not allow himself to grow old. Colonel I'or- kins has a neighbor ot ninety , whom ho looks upon ns a youth , and who gous ro ulurly to his duties as town clerk. This is Olhnill fiagur , and he has been town clerk of Norwich tor nearly fifty years. Almost on the boundary line between Now York and Connecticut there lives a finewy , active man indum ! David Hank- , . Ho. thinks , nothing ot a walk of five miles in White Plains and back again in u day , and at a recent public meeting In drooii wioh , this vigorous man spoktt with ' al thu force and tluenoyof a young la'wyer and witii much better logic than BOIUO of them are can.iblo of. Yet ho is ninety- four years old. nml when asked about his a ; , ' replies : "Aire ! lnovcrthinkof.it. " That very nctlyo veteran , Mr. Hcurr H.Stanton. . recently called attention in The Sun to the death of the llevcrend lr. .Shipman , father of Jiulcc Shlpman of the I'mlcd Statc.s district court for tins dl.slrlct. Nobody ovtr thought of thn dominlo as old , for ho was as jollvnnd as aclho as a schoolboy , and he uad a laugh lhat was ? o hearty that none could resist it , and keenly did ho enjoy a jok , and delighted was ho it ho was himself the victim His round , roy , merry face was to bo .scon in nil winds and went her * , hero , there , and cVery hero in the stale , for ho was a constant attendant upon meetings of religions and educational societies Yet lieva almost ninety when ho died , and ha never was an old man. There was that prodigy of learning and industry. Caleb dishing , sailing oil' to Spain when ho was jia t se\enty ; lalk- ing Trench like n native at ( rcnova. when according to the psalmist ho should have been in his graves arguing with force and learning before the supreme court when ho was approaching eighty , working eighteen hours onto ! thelwcnty- four , ills time ilid not ( nine until he was nas-l eighty , and his fatal illness found him In the harness. There wa" knocked about an ocean steamer on a recent stormy passage a pleasant-faced man , with a long 1100 , a bright eye , a winning smile , and a sprlghtlv step , a gentleman who iccently resigned the presidency of Yale college because ho was .seventy-live years old Yol ho has been jaunl'mg about Kuropo this summer , w thoul weaiiness , and has comu homo to take up the work of a pro fcnor in Yale , llo i.s nearly seventy six , but President Porter would never be thoughl of as an old man. The splendid intellect of the Kcverend Dr. Leon.ud W liai'on was not dimmed until he was past cigthy , and some of Ihc best work of his lifu was done in llie decade belween sevenlv and eighty. Tlu-rc was ox Presi dent Woolscy , at se > cnly-sevcn , publish ing works on economic subjects thai are aeeoplcd as aulhoriely. and ihcre is cx- Prosulont Hopkins of Williams , well on toward ninety , but addressing audiences , as _ recently at DCS Moincs , without the slightcM evidence of tint impairment of his great menial vigor. in Iho year 1818 there began and con tinued in Iho house ol representatives for Iwo weeks a parliamentary battle over the richt of petition which lias seldom if ever been equaled for the intense excite ment , acrimony and heated debate , and ingenious uses of parliamentary law made by each parly lo Iho controversy. Thu leader on ono side was a man past eighty. They called him the "old man eloquent.1' So far as quickness of mind , resources of intellect and the ability lo use them was concerned , there was no man under fifty who ex-celled him. He had been president of the United States fifteen year.s bcfoie , and ho served as a member of the lower house for al most a generation of year.s after ho quitted the presidency Death found him in harness , indeed , for when almost ninety he was .suddenly smitten while in his scat in llie house , and died in an ad joining room. John ( Jiuncy Adams had fullness of years , but he wus never old. Who is the veteran of the house to-day ? 11 is a man whose aelhity is so great , whose fund of good stories so inexhausti ble and Ins glee in telling them ho hearty , whoso slop is so quick , and whoso duties are so energetically performed lhat he is about the last mail with white hair who would bo picked out as Iho oldesl man in llie body. This is John .Turner Wait , of Connecticut , and his years are almost seventy-seven , but his intellect is as keen and his body as vigorous as when ho was liftj. Ho will go buck to his old home in Norwich when nis term is ended , practice law with vijjor , and have all the fun ho can out of life. There was ( Joneral Fulteraon , of Phila delphia , who at cighty-Jivo could out hit any younger man ai the dinner table , and cat his Miaro ami smoke as many cigars a& the best ot them. And \\hat quaint , delightful sloiies he. tohl , and how oreot was Ids body and firm his step. Age ! Ho know it not ; yel he was almost ninety before - fore ho passed away. There is General Simon Cameron , whose mind i as clear as crystal , who not only calls memory that reaches far away in the past to his service , but re veals that best test of unimpaired vigor , the power to weigii the future. General Cameron is ncarin < r ninely , but you can not call his mind old , for its vigor is ap parent lo all who talk with him and who hear his thoughtful comments on the is sues of Iho day. Nor can you call llie body of a man old who thinks nothing ot a thousand-mile railway trip. There is the loader of the Boston bar , Mr. Sidney Hartlett. Ho is past cighly , bill ho charms Iho supiomo court of the stale with Itis arguments still , and he works with the assiduity of a strong miud in a hlrong body. Here is Iho junior sennlor from Ver mont , Mr. Merrill , publishing the other day a book which ho had leisure to wrilo a 1 though ho is chairman of thu most im porlant committee of the senate tlmt on finance. Yet , Mr. Merrill is old enough to bo Senator Edmund's father , and he works as faithfully as Iho youngest of senators , and with all the ardor and en thusiasm that wo cxpecl to find in young statesmen of forty or thcreabouls. The best part of Uenjamin Franklin's life hud only begun wl.on ho was past seventy years of ago , and ho might have been the grandfather of Iho sandy-haired young man whoso draft of Iho Declara tion of Independence ho assisted Jfllcrson to revise That wonderful genius of Franklin did notbegin to diminish until ho was long past his eightieth year. The ojhor day the writer met a vigor ous-looking man who was busily engaged in superintending the loading of u largo vessel with produce for tlio Now York market , The man was ns keen-eyed as a tlpor walker , and as quick as a Hash in his computations and adjustments of ac counts , Yet when ho had a moment's leisure ho told how ho had sixty year.s ago entertained Lafayette as ho was on his way to New Haven over the old Now York [ test road , and very interesting wore his descriptions of the i'Yuiioh hero's speech and manners. This man was John Newman of .Mian us , now nighty- live years old , and as active a business man as one could wish to sec , and when Ids ago was relerred to ho said that no man who was born healthy ought to think ot getting old before hu was ninety , and ho spoke of a number of men hu knew who wuru still inactive lit , though more than eighty yoar.s of ago. I5ul it is nol necessary to prolong these Illustrations to show tlmt in this country ago is not to bo mcnsimiil by years , at hmsl by the old limit sot by the scriptures. A man may bo old at foily , and young al seventy , and there scorns to bo no surer way of growing old when a nmn roaches f-oyonty than by quitting-wholly Iho ac- tivuuniplojmont to which his loutr life has accustomed him. Andif there is uuy- Ihing in the > 'areer of thi ) men of whom mention has been made lhat is significant it is that all of them hud curly learned to do their best , and to bo content tlicr , ) with.
