The day of Rood resolutions is at hand.
The day of breaking them la duo later
on. Old 1880 Ims whispered his tale of
Omnlm's prosperity into the ycnr of the
infant ' 87" with dying breath , A year of
rnro prosperity for Omnlm has been closed
nnd a year of great promise entered
upon. It is probable tlml thcro will bo
no extensive formal celebration of to
day. The oltl custom ol making
Now Year's calls , which lias never been
very strongly rooted in Omaha , is dying
out. A low families will keep open
lionso nnd n number of gentlemen will
undoubtedly "call around" to pnylliclr
regards nnd enjoy n piece of cake and ti
sip of wino. Al thn Y. M. C. A , room n

I'rince Karl is a vehicle well designed
to bring into prominence tlio versatility
I of clever llichard Mansfield. The sup
porting members of the company are not ,
brilliant and make n decidedly neutral .
background against which Iho strong
points of thu slar are brought into boldest
relief. He is a entertaining and
jovial follow , eminently the moving spirit
> if the piece , and ho carries the burden of
the work so highly that he scarcely scorns
to Do acting. His powers of imitation
nro as miraculous as they are entertain
ing , and the large and fashionable audi
ence wonltl have been well content could
they have kept him before them all the
evening. His Imitations of a cello and

A Uemarknblo Trip Miulo Uy n
Drunken Farmer.
One of tlio most peculiar unit al the
same lime perilous freak of a drunken
man on record occurred bore some timt
after midnight last night , vrltcs a Day
ton , 0. , correspondent of the St. Louts
Globe-Democrat under the date of No
vember ! ! i. The fellow , who is now be
hind llio bars in Iho county jail under
bond of $2,000. gives his name as Murk
Hadtlix , and ho claims Osborn , O. , as his
homo. The charge against him reads
grand larceny , but this simply lo < pil term
docs not bcgin _ to tell tno story. The lar '
ceny of which he is charged is nothing
more or less thau the stealing \ . ,
of a locomotive valued at ' u
$8,000 , Iho property of Iho Gin- sc
Cincinnati , Hamilton As Daylon railroad. tc"l
Haddix was seen prowling about the "ldi
freight yards and round house in tlio di
evening , and appearing k > have too much fc
stimulants ou board , the yantmastor 01
drove him out of the. yards , more for Ids sc
own safety than for any apprehension trw
that ho could do any harm. After beinir trU
chased away ho was found later hiding U !
in u caboose near the round house , and in
was driven away again. Nothing more re
ivas seen of him alter this until after
midnight , when ho made away with the
locomotive. Engine No. 7 , with steam
up , was standing on what is called the bePi
inside track , being next to the round Pi
house , ready to commence her trip north IK
ivitti a f reign t train , when Iladdix sprang is :
into the c.ib and opened the throttle , ili
starting the iron monster backward
Lhrougiijho yard. IKEi
lie turned on a full head of steam , and Ei
iway slio went , with the drink-crazed stnt
jtigincor aboard. The locomotive had ntHi
traveled but a , few hundred feet when Hi
iho was running nt a terrific rate and ainl
ncrcasing her speed at overj' revolution nl
) l her drive-wheels. A freight train , or Sil
rather cut of freight cars witli switch on- orAi
; ino No. 12 , was backing down on the Ai
vild engineer , but ho seomcil to bo ut- S3
.crly unconscious of any danger. It is
istimatcd that his cngino was running nt a
he rate of lifteen or twenty miles pc
iu hour as it approached the in
nain track on which the cut of ca
roiglit cars was backing. Oscar L ulmor , ca
L switchman , taking in the situation , sir
iiade a desperate attempt to avoid n col-
ision , if possible , and nt tlio risk of CO
> eiug run over , sprang upon tlio foot- th
) oard of Iho locomotive in lladdix's pos- th ;
cssion , clambered into the cnb , throw im
he drtmkcu fellow aside , and reversed qu
he throttle. However , ho was too late , lh
ind while no one was injured by the col- Ti
ision , it resulted In ono bor car being vewi
lamaged beyond repair , two others faring wiwi
ittt little belter , while eighty draw-barn wi
rill need repairing ; also the minor parts ca
if the cars. pe
If the collision had not taken place ( inlet
ladtlix and his locomotive would have lot
tout into en
crashing the north-bound pas-
unger train somewhere just beyond the is
ity limits. It was fortunate that the tin
nad freak ended as It did. lladdix was an
liken in charge by the railroad people roi
tlio i later _ , . turned . him over lo the police. CO
le says ho doesn't remember taking tiio tin
ngine , butsuys ho knows ho was drunk ! l
ml may have done so , Haddix is a inHK
urnier and a man of less than ordinary HK
itclllgcnce , and now admits that ho foi
news as little about the running of a liv
iciitnotl vu us a hog does about the Sib- va
ath. His friends gay ho is honest , and dr ;
as never boon known to steal anything , gorat
t'hibky , it scums , is what did the work. rat
The Umbrella In Poker Playing. fm
Macon Telegraph : Otin of the old nu

Social Lifo In the Model Settle
A Municipal Oovcrnnicnt

anil Clubs.
Now Vorlc Times : When foreigners
speak of Shanghai , the great commercial
metropolis of China , they usually mean
only the foreign settlement near ( ho na
tive city. This consists ot about -J.OlW
resident foreigners ol nil nationalities ,
the majority of whom are , however ,
Jingllsh. The hind is hold by long lease
from iho Chinese government , nnd in ( he
case of English sotUcrj this lease is in
tlio name of the British crown , Many of
the buildings are very large and cosily
structures of stone anil brick , and , with
respect to beauty , would or
nament the lincsl cities iu Europe and
North America.
The municipal government of "the
settlement" is republican in form. Thcro
is n board of couneilmon elected an
nually by the hintt owners , or rather laud
renters. This legislative body exorcises
many of tno attributes of sovereignty.
It makes assessments , fixes llio rale of
laxation , prescribes the police and sanl
lary regulations , and dulincs the func
tions and fixes thu salaries of all subor
dinate municipal oiliccrs. Of course this
power of taxation is a more assumption
of authority , It is authorized nulthor by
tlio public treaties nor by ( ho terms of
lease from the Chinese government.
Not one of the Ircaty powers whoso na
tionality is represented iu the settlement
has omiuunt domain , thotitrii nil have
extra-lorrilorialily. A crime com
mitted therein by a China
man is amenable to n Chinese
tribunal , just as a crime committed by
a foreigner oulsidoof its limits is amend
able to the authorities of the olibiulor's
nationality. The same rule applies with
respect lo all foreign residents and prop
erty owners within
tlie so-called conces
sion. All disputes between them and all
jrinios committed by them are triable
jnly by tbo authorities of the defendant's
lutlonalily antt according to llio laws of
lis own couuiry. A resident English of-
icial has no authority to issue or enforce
i tn\Jiu. against an American or Gcr- '
uan resident anil vice versa. The muni-
lipality is therefore one williout charter ,
ind is merely a self-constiluletl
ion , willioul Iho shadow of legal au-
hority to impose laves upon resident
iroijorty holders for the purposes of pub
ic improvements. And yet this is just
i-bat it has boon doing for years , ttud'no-
ody raises any objection , The reason
j obvious. It is llio only means of pro-
iding for such improvements

There is a "club , " or something known
by that name , at each of thu treaty ports
in China , and il is hardly necessary to
add that it is always the center of the
local British Inlluoiico. Everything about
it is distinctively EnglUb , though its
membership is often made up of the na
tionalities of nil the Jlvo trcaly powers.
No retail merchant ( or "shopkeeper. " as
ho is called bore ) , can over bo admitted
to membership. A Chinaman can never
become cligablo , no matter what may bo
his rank his Intellectual
, attainment * , or
his material wealth. Some years ago an
English "shopkeeper" in Hong-Kong at
tempted to join the club In that place.
He was a man of high character and his
individual chock wns coed for anything
under a hundred thousand lauls , ( about
$140,000. ) Hut ho was black-balled , and
the crcntloman who recommended him
lost social caste in consequence. The
proprietor of the loading morning
there was , in a like manner , black-balled
because ho was , or rather had been ,
a practical printer , liis ollico editor ,
however , a j-oiuig graduate of Etoif , was
duly admitted.
Ono cannot bo in Shanghai long with
out a great deal about the "Bubbling
Well" and the Bubbling Well road. Thu
road is the fashionable drive of Iho city ,
ind lliu well is universally talked up by
; hu residents ns a great physical curi-
> sity. The drive is about throe and a
mif miles ; Iho road is a broad macadam ,
ind ' the team usually a pair of spirited
1'artar ponies. But this is about all there
s of it. The "Bubbling Woll. " whereof
: ou have heard so much , is merely a
'omul hole in the ground , walled up with
noss-grown boulders and inclosed
iv a rustic railing. Jts depth is proba-
ily four feet. I would Indeed bo diflicult
lot to find water at that dcplh any- [
( hero noarShuncliai. The water itself ,
ike that in the neighboring creeks ami
itches , is covered with dark greenish
limu and omits an offensive odor. But.

itches , it is novur quite at rest. The ac-

Is a prcat shock to tlie nalioh. Few knew
Ihnl lie wns even indisposed when the news
of his dcalh flashed over Hie wires ant !
thousands of people stood aghast nt the
sudden change from health nnd vigor tc
cold nnd silent dcn'.h. For the past Iwenly-
fivc years there lias been no man more
constantly before the public than Genera
John. A , Logan. Tluougli all his career
he Ims been noted for his fearlessness and
pnrity of character , boll * in public and pri
vate life. Loved by friends and respected by
enemies he will be mourned by all ,
His death ndds another to the long list of
victims to tuddcn and ncutc rheumatism ,
Probably no disease Is so common as rheu
matism , none Is more sudden or dangerous ,
and there Is ccitninlj none which
so com
pletely baffles medical skill. Only one
reinedlias yet been discovered Mlilcli is a
sure nnd sale cure for ihcutnntism niul its
twin ) disease , neuralgia , and that Is Athlo-
phoros. In thousands of cases Alhlophoros
lias proved a quick and certain cure for
these diseases. In connection with Atldo-
photos Pills il has never yet failed to speed
ily cficct a cure. In all probability many
( tenths nltributcd tolicarl disease arc caused
by Ihese terrible diseases , which arc far
more dangerous than is
generally con
sidered. Rheumatism , in
even though a
vary mild form , is extremely dangerous , for
it is liable nt any moment logo to the dealt
and cause instant death. Why trifle with
a distnsc so \\hcuncutaluciiiccnu be
obtained of any druggist ?
Every drupcist should keep Athlopho
ros nnil Atlilfjphoros Pills , but whore thny
cannot bo bought of the druggist the
