cold meats and Ices. Judge Woolworth oc-
rupled the chair at the bend of the table and

At 'Fort Oinnlin.
A number of the ladies and officers of the
Fifth regiment of infantry who were de
layed at Omaha on accpunt of the wreck
took advantage of the opportunity to visit
Fort Omaha and pny their respects to their
friends of the past and to their associates in
former frontier life.
Lieutenants John IClnMo , William U. Abcr-
crombc , William M. Wright and Harry K
\Vllklns , observing the qulot and actual dull
ness of tlio garrison caused b.v the absence of
the left wing of the regiment , determined to
Impress upon the minds of some at least that
llfo wus still worth living. After
EOino deliberation a dunce V.MS
suggested and determined upon. It
was ono of the most nnjoyablo "hops"
given at the garrison this your ; the success
of the dance was evidently duo to the ear
nest woik of the nbovo mentioned ofllecrs.
The hair was beautifully dccoiatcd , the
supper delicious and tlirj music , as usual , was
Flilcudid. The attendance was principally
composed of city people. Among tlio dis
tinguished persons present were the new
department commander and wife , General
and Mrs. Brooko.
The ofllccrs and ladles of the Second in <
fantry very much regret that the members
of the Fiftli Infantry could not accept invita
tiotis to n lunch last Friday at Fort Omaha ,
The assessments ot the insurance compaoj
requited the presence of the ofticcrs on
that day at the wreck and they were thus
obliged to decline with regret the cordial
Invitations of the members of the Second

lice have reported , a number of cases
where children not over thirteen years
of ago have cither attempted to or did
kill themselves , pays a recent issue of
the Philadelphia ( Pa. ) Press. Three of
these cases resulted in death and were
subjects for a coroner's inquest. The
evidence adduced has been carefully
analysed , and proves that a suicidal
mania is now prevalent among children
of tender years in this city. A most re
markable circumstance connected with
these inquests is the fact that nearly all
of the infantile suicide ? are girls whoso
ages range from eleven to thirteen
The last attempt was that of thirteen-
year-old Florence McClelland , of No.
liWO Mutter street , who tried to take
her life by swallowing a aoso of lauda
The first attempt at suicide brought
to the attention of the police occurred
March ! ) . when
on twelve-year-old An
nie Niblick of No. 6911 K street was
found dead , hanging in a room at her
home. Sho. prior to her death , was n
playmate of Florence McClelland. An
inquest hold before the coroner proved
conclusively that the youngster had de
liberately taken her life. The facts in
this case wore to the effect that the girl
had stolen a number of handkerchiefs ,
nnd , being afraid of chistisement from
her father , which was threatened her
if she did not return them to the owner ,
caused her to take her life. Not long
after this Florence McClelland , as
stated above , attempted suicide , and
left n note addressed to her mother ,
stating , "I am going to join Annie Nib
lick. " She swallowed 6 cents worth of
laudanum , but the timely nrrivnl of a
stomach pump saved her from death.
Only three days elapsed , and then
Gcorgo Simon , ngod thirteen years , of
No. 1005 Gorhardt street , was found
hanging toatreo on the outskirts of the
First ward-by a policeman. An inquest
was hold , when it was shown that the
lad was incorriblo , nnd had ended his'
life in preference to chastisement.
In speaking of these deaths and ex
plaining his theory as to the cause of
them , Coroner Ashbridgo said : "I
have never ordered post-mortem ex
aminations in any of tlio cases referred
to because I did not think it necessary.
From my experience and personal ob
servation I believe that dime novels ,
trashy literature , nnd oven newspaper
sensations have a great denl to do with
it. The youngster , Simon , no doubt ,
wanted to bo u hero , wlnlo the little
girls who have * met a sad fate thought
they were taking the part of heroines.
The parents of the children , in some
in = tnnccs , nro to bo blamed for rending
the sensational newspaper accounts of
these tragic deaths to their olT&prings.
Gen. Jackson and Abraham Ijincoln.
General Simon i Cameron , halo nnd
hearty in his eighty-ninth yearwas the
guest of the Cameron club in Philadel
phia on the ocqusipn of its 'Imnouot in
celebration of its twenty-fifth nnnivor-
Fary , In resnojiding to the toast in his
honor ho said ; "When the club was
organi/.ed the times were very trying.
Mr. Lincoln was then looking forward to
the possibilities of a second termand it
seemed to mo , who s.iw him frequently
at this period , that ho was frightened
over his chances. He sent for mo one
day , and told mo his doubts about the
renominntion , and I tried to set them at
rest. I told him that no matter how
much his opponents in the party might
contrive , they cpuld not defeat him.and
I finally said'I : will tell you nn inci
dent in my career during President
Jackson's term which may help you
out. Near the , close of the term of
President Jackson who. like our pre
sent executive , Mr. Cleveland , nad
said ho only wanted ono term , but
afterward changed his mind ( laughter ]
I AVUS sent for to come to Washington
from Now Orleans , where I was at the
time , to see President Jackson and ad
vise with him'aa to what could be douo
toward securing a second term. When
I arrived in Washington nnd mot Gen
eral Jackson ho told mo ho wanted mete
to do what I could toward helping him
to a second term. Ho said : ' 'Cameron
will go homo and you got the legislature
of Pennsylva n iato pass a resolution ask
ing me to stand for a second term ? " I
said : " 1 can not do that ; I am known
an a one-term man. But I can have the
resolution drawn up in Washington and
got some ono to take it to Harrisburg
and have it passed. " JLaughter. ] This
was done , and in due time the legisla
ture of Pennsylvania requested General
Jackson by resolution to reconsider his
previous declaration not to be a candi
date for re-election and stand for another
term , which ho finally reluctantly con
sented to do. ' [ Great laughter. ] I told
Mr. Lincoln this story , when ho said :
'But what is thnt got to do with me ? '
'I'll show you , Mr. President , ' said I ,
'I'll go to "llarrisburg and got the old
Jackson resolution copied nnd got it
passed by the legislature , requesting
you to stand for a nomination.1 The
idea seem to please him , and accord
ingly wo got the Jackson resolution nnd
struck out Jackson's name and all about
the state bank , and had it adopted by
the Pennsylvania legislature , and you
know the rest. ' " [ Great laughter. ]
Tobacco Chewcrs Decreasing.
Now York Press : When the elder
Charles Dickens was in this country on
his first visit there was no ono of the
American habits which called fdrth
from the great novelist more condem
nation than the one of chewing tobacco ,
But times change , and national as
well as personal habits change with
them. America is no longer a nation of
tobacco-chowors , and that inannoi * of
using tobacco is gradually but surely
Every tobacconist recognizes the
grent cbnngo that is taking place in
what in ono sense may be termed the
public taste. A tobacco dealer whoso
trade is not exclusively among sailors ,
says that ho does not sell one-hnlf us
much chewing tobacco to-day as ho did
ton years ago , and not moro than one-
third as much as twenty hears ago.
Said ono of them a few days ago :
"Tho fulling oil in the use of chewing
tobacco is a great deal more apparent
hero in the east than it is in the south
nnd west , but it is noticeable every
where. One cause for the decadence of
the habit is undoubtedly due to the
growth of public opinion that it is nn
uncleanly habit. It is hard , nlso , for n
man addicted to the habit to keep from
showing evidences of it on his clothes
"But the principal causes are right
hero. There is a great deal more dys
pepsia and stomach trouble in the coun
try now than there used to bo , nnd no
person with a weuk stomach can nhow
tobacco. The action of the tobacco
juice , which trickles down the throat of
a ehowor is to paralyze the action of
the stomach. It will nccomplbh thnt
long before tobacco smoke will leave
nny perceptible effect upon the lungs.
Then , again , the cigarette has done a
great deal to put an end to the chewing
' 'The growth of the cigarette prac
tice in this country is and has been phe
nomenal. The consumption of cigar
ettes has multiplied many times during
the last fifteen years. A bout-seven out
of every ten boys now growing up smoke
cignrcttcs. After a boy has smukcd
cignrettcs for a few years he not only
has no taste for tobacco in any other
form , but ho has no stomach or consti-
Jution left to stand chewing tobacco.
"Tho sufferings which tin inveterate
tobacco ehowor endures \vn n he first
deprives himself of his nccuttomcd
'weed' are popularly supposed to be al
most intolerable. Some ox-chowers say
they are , while others maintain that
they are nothing which a resolute will
and a clear head cannot mutcr. All
ngrco , however , thu't they have .to use ,
some- substitute at first , bo it only a
match or u wooden toothpick. "
