O my-bcantlful level My fair Nannottol
Tho' the years have flown I can no'er forgot
The night of the dance , when ilrst wo mot ,
When I looked In your oycs of gloaming Jot ,
And gazed on your regal splondor.
And that other time , 'twas a night like this ,
The stars that night did their matins miss
To look upon us and share in our bliss ,
As I clasped you close with n rapturous kiss ,
\7hllst your eyes shone , soft and tender.
But alas , for the words that wo then spoke ,
They've ended , as such words do , in smoke ,
For wo afterwards vowed that 'twas ' all a
And kissed nnd parted , no heart broke ,
' 1 that small cause for wonder.
For my beautiful love , my lair Nannotto ,
"With her raven hair for a lover's net ,
Was naught but a guileless , gay coquette
Who never was caught , nor in Cupid's debt
For dart from his fairy quiver.
And I , also , If the truth were told.
Was a flirting man , gay in days of old ,
Merely n trnv'llng man , fresh and bold ,
To merchants and tnalds nliko singing "sold , "
An I floated down Time's river.
Englishmen who visit our country and
i become slightly acquainted with our
people , customs , and institutions , tell us
that ono of our most distinctlvo charac
teristics is the habit of exaggeration.
At the Dolrnonico banquet Herbert
Spencer said that wo were in too much
of a hurry , that wo seemed to havo.
steum and electricity not only in our
factories and mills but in the very muscle -
clo and brain of our people. Wo admit
that both charges are true to some ox-
ton t. Wo are in so much of a hurry
in our business that wo do not have
time to search for the exact facts , and
nnd in speaking wo generally make
etatomonts long enough and broad
enough to compass the truth , the whole
truth nnd anything that might bo truo.
Wo live in a great country , and a
grent ago. Our mountains are
BO high , our rivers so
long nnd wide , our territory
BO boundless , our inventions BO marvel
ous and the progress of our towns and
cities so rapid and astonishing that the
idea of bigness Is born with us. Our sur
roundings stimulate our imagination.
An Englishman living on a narrow striu
of country , out of which wo could make
n , nice Indian reservation does not have
to strain his imagination to take in his
country , or to express ideas suggested
by his surroundings.
Exaggeration is the chief element in
our wit. Statements which transcend
{ { nil bounds of truth , at wliich n Scotch
woman would he appalled , wo call humor.
Murlr Twain , Bill Nye nnd Josh Billings
nro pleasant oxaggorators. Trim their
writings down to truth and they are
dull. Ho was u true American who wit
nessed the volcauio eruptions of
Vesuvius that roado the sky lurid
nnd remarked to a friend that "Niagara
could put horj out in two minutes. "
Our newspapers rolloet our senti
ments and feelings. In almost every
lieading there is a leap beyond the
truth. A grass tire in Dakota becomes
"A most destructive conflagration that
lays bare the country. Thousands of
homos In ashes nnd millions of property
destroyed. " An ordinary , killing be
comes "A horrible deed of atrocity. "
A doxon or two man go to Washington
to seek ollico and wo are told of "Tlio
most violent scramble for place ever
known in the annals of our country.
Qho ? city of Washington overrun with
patriots. " A little private party is "A
pplondld assembly of beauty nnd wit. "
" Our merchants show the same ten
dency. Where is the sioi-o that has
not the largest nnd the cheapest prices ?
How frequent are such signs as "Great
est reduction in prices ever known. "
"Torriblo ulaughtoriof our entire stock. "
"Positively soiling under cost. " The
elow Gorman soon catches on and tries
to Iccop up with the procession ,
and ever his saloon Is painted a largo
glass overflowing with offorvossconoo
and under it the sign , "A great big
lioor for 6 cents. " It is questionable
whether such methods of advertising
nro of any value. * Continued ovor-
BtaAomcnt becomes weakness. The
jnibllo long used to misrepresentations
I liavo little faith in the sign of a mer
r clmnt that ho Is slaughtering his entire
Block at hull cost. The weakest way n
fact can bo stated Is to load it down
with cumbrous superlatives. Truth IB
etroncrest when neatly dressed , but not
disguised , by art.
I The propensity to exaggerate reaches
Its height with the real ost&to donlor
His * nrt is to go near without crossing
the line where exaggeration becomes
humor. It is easy to double the popu
lation of n town because very few people
know the exact number of residents
and every Inhabitant is disposed to
bollovo what Is favorable. It is still
easier to picture the possibilities of the
future , wo have soon cities spring up
whore wo least expected n town , and
who knows but that Crosby's Cross
Roads may rival Omaha , for the rail
roads are nondod that way. Kearney
is n pluclcy town , with advantages nnd
possibilities of which few other towns
In the state can boast. Yet there Is
Bomothing of the humorous lu the ad
vertisements of her real estate ngonts ,
who parade the fact that Kearney is ox-
nctly midway between Boston nnd Sun
Prnnclsco. The nrtful association of
Kearney with San Francisco nnd Bos
ton suggests tho-remark of the rooster
picking In the stable with the horses !
"Gejitlemen , lot us not tramp on each
other's toes. " Kunopolis , Kan. , wo nro
told , is bound to bo n city because It Is
the oxnct geographical center of the
United States. Mark Twain says
Adam was horn In the center
of the world bccauso that was a very
advantageous place for him to bo born ,
nnd it cannot bo proved that ho was
born at nny ether place.
For many years nn exaggerated vnluo
has been placed upon Oklahoma and a
tremendous pressure forced the open
ing. Our people love novelty , license ,
nnd that which Is forbidden. The de
sire Is heightened by mystic orders and
BtrnnKO signs. The thousands of people
ple who Imvo gone there may in a short
time , suy with the pool :
"Tho priceless thing so fiercely sought
Hath lost half Its value by being caught. '
Uncle Sam will have to open the rest
of the Indian Territory to satisfy them.
In a school boy's oration wo nro not
displeased nt n little exaggeration. Wo
expect grandiloquence and wo
are disappointed if wo do not got
it. Every ono has laughed nt the bri
lliant sketch of the schoolboy who
pictured the American eagle as the
proud bird standing with ono foot on the
Allegheny the ether on the Rocky
mountains , with one wing dipped in the
turbid waters of the Atlantic , the other
"n the blue waters of the Pacific , with
lor head resting on an iceberg nt the
north polo and fanning with her tail
the soft breezes of South America. But
, n n grave legal argument anything approaching
preaching what the boys call a curl is
extremely distasteful ; The peroration
of ono of the speeches in the King trial
contained moro bombastic , high-down
eloquence than any smart school boy
would have boon guilty of. It does the
jury no credit to say that they were in
fluenced by this maudlin sentiment.
Wo do not look tori a deep-seated reverence -
once for law or n very high estimate
upon human life in a now state whore but
recently cowboys shot men down on small
provocation and men wore hanged to the
nearest tree for stealing cattle. Yet
the sober BGIIBO of the people of Ne
braska will say it were bettor had that
jury plucked a feather from the wing of
heir sympathy and stuck it in the tail
of their judgment.
As wo got further away from our civil
war the desire to magnify all the little
incidents becomes almost a mania , .
Many n gray haired veteran wearing
badges and marked with wounds , may ,
under n grim countenance , toll a story
that will startle credulity itself. And
the story once told around a camp fire
loses uono of the particulars.
"The flying rumor gathers as it rolls ,
All who toll it add something now ,
And all who hear It make enlargement , too"
No wonder Gnnoral Sherman said , in
a recent number of the North Ameri
can Review , that ho had hoard so many
stories about what happened in the
"March to the Sea , " that ho
had begun to think some
other follow by the same name
conducted that campaign. Wo arc so
much In the habit of exaggerating , that
an undor-statomont gives us pain. 1
recently purchased ono of Rand & Mc-
Nally's guides toJNobraska. They are
sold on all trains ana in all book stores.
The book contains ns man'y gross mis
representations as it was possible to
crowd into ns many pages. The popu
lation of Norfolk Is given as 1'Jl'J ' ,
O'Neill is given 18. Chadron is put
down as just a postomco. Omahn is
credited in black typo with 0.183K. It
is stated that the statistics nro based on
the last census. It may flatter Rhode
Island and Vermont to quote the popu
lation ten years ago , but it won't do for
a growing state like Nebraska. Can
you not perform the ollico of thoLaputan
llappor and remind the Rip Van Winkle
of this publishing house that it is high
time to awako. Toll him that Nebraska
now is no moro like Nebraska
of ten years ngo than nn elegant dwell
ing is like a sod houso. It would bo ap
propriate to label this guide "Curious
statistics about the early days of Ne
braska. "
Traveling mon are said to exaggerate
moro than any ether class of mon. The
charge is true , if it is meant that travel
ing men can tell more and bettor stories
than ether people. The drummer has
n fine sense of humor , and he can ox-
nggorato in a way to cause great laugh-
tor. But ho does not seriously exug-
gorato. Ho is n man of wonderful in
formation , derived from contact with
the world. He has crossed the Brook
lyn bridge , gene under the Chicago
river , has heard the roar of Niagara ,
has followed the Mississippi to its
mouth , and has entered the Golden
Gate. Ho preceded Captain
Payne in Oklahoma , and led
the rnilrdaOs in the territories.
He has boon in hail storms , bliz
zards and cyclones. Ho is acquainted
with the great merchants and lawyers
of Now York and Chicago , and ho
knows the grocoryman at Bom'a Mill
nnd the justicool thopeacoof Buzzard's
Roost. Ho cannot bo called a citizen of
any town or city. Ho is a resident of
the United States. Why should ho ox-
nggorntoV Does ho not know the
truth ? Has ho not heard with his own
oars ana aeon with his own eyosV
While ether people- may draw upon
their imaginations for their facts , does
ho not draw upon his actual knowledge
nnd experience ? Lawyers , preachers ,
doctors and editors may learn from the
man who carries the grip things not
dreamt of in their philosophy.

To the Editor of Tim Br.u : Some time

Omahn , for there is not n loading hbuso
hut would contribute to making this
work n success , nnd If properly con
ducted by n board of merchants and
travelers , say five of each , I nm ccrluln
that there would not bo nny trdublo In
raising the money necessary. The fur
nishing would bo a secondary matter.
Wo should bo in n nosition to show the
merchants and travelers coming to
Omnha thnt wo nro not behind the
times. Omahn with Its location nnd increasing - .
creasing population nnd business Inter
ests should do everything to control the
trade west of the Missouri. Her loca
tion would make n strong bid if it were
shown to the country merchants , there
were faculties to sell goods nt Chlcngo

A Ijlfo niiulo Miserable
By dyspepsia is hardly worth living. A
capricious appetite , heartburn , puzzling ner
vous symptoms , increased action of the heart
after eating , sinking in the abdomen between
meals , and flatulence after , are among the
successive indicia of this harrasslng com
plaint. Two things only are needful for its
removal. A resort to Hosteller's Stomach
Bitters , and persistence in its use. Those-
remedial measures being adopted , a euro is
certain. Taken immediately before or after
meals , thin great stomachic promotes accre
tion oftho gastriojuico , the natural solvent
of the food. The nervous and bilious symp
toms consequent upon chronic indigestion
disappear , as the complaint gradually yields
to the corrective and invigorative influence
of the Bitters. Appotlto returns , sleep becomes -
comes moro refreshing , and as a sequence ,
the body is oftjciontly nourished , muscular
power increases und the mind grows san
guine. Use the Bitters for chills and fever
nd rheumatism. _

"What Is the state board of transportation
going to dot"
This question 1ms been asked wltn wonder
ful frequence la Lincoln during the past few
days. No ono seems willing to ronturo nn
annwor cr oven a prognostication. But the
opinion exists that the board Is going to net
cautiously , and will not nmko n move of nny
kind until the arguments in the Sutherland *
Manning complaints have been thoroughly
considered , Members of the board are very
n on-coinmlttol. The complaints alluded to
were fllod against the Klkhorn and heard
recently at Tcknmah , As TUB BEP. has
already stated , they were made to secure a
reduction of freight rates ou coal and live
stock. It Is understood that some , If not all ,
of the member * of the board favor making
nn order of reduction on tbo classification as
prayed , and that It will bo made
upon n digest of arguments , which
have Just boon received , the ten days allowed
for submitting the same having expired.
In Bomo quarters of Lincoln the argument
is freely urged that tbo late action of re
trenchment on the part of the Burlington
will huvo a tendency to raise the fears of the
tenderfoot. That is , the road seeks to con
vince that it has not been making expenses ,
has been losing money in fact , and chooses
to lop off employes and nccomimodatlous
rather than keep up the grind in the old way.
Again It is urged that the action of the roads
in Iowa in taking oft accommodations because
of railroad legislation forncnst their wishes
will bo repeated in Nebraska if a freight re
duction order of any moment Is made. So it
KOCH , mid the state board of transportation is
Kept In hot water day In and day out.
"I want to say to you , " said ono
of the board to-day , "that I
nm getting tired of sitting between two tiros.
The claims of the people , brought about by
newspaper agitation , on ono side , and the
railroads , claiming to bo half fed on the
other , furnished a variety that tends to keep
us poor devils in n restless .stato of activity.
Bled to death on ono baud and half paid ou
the other 1 Think of it. Now , the Burling
ton fellows are actually bout on lessening
expenses by reducing the force of their holu
In the various departments of their road.
This , on the surface , looks as though their
claims were based upon truth. But I got to
looking into the receipts of the road , the
real capital invested , and I nm forced to ntop
and actually exclaim , 'Tlicro is some-thing
wrong somewhere. " It can't bo that the
road Is not making expenses when not handi
capped. The great strike of last year
must have something to do with this
spasmodic move of retrenchment , and not
the possible order of the board for lower
rotes on freight shipments. "
The board of secretaries returned from
their visit to Covlntrton ycstcrda ) . In con
versation with Mr. Gilchrist it is learned
that the board did not fall desperately in
love with the place ; Nothing was done
toward adjusting the depot diOlculties there ,
but during the current week dcilnito action
will probably bo taken and findings made. If
the town gets the depot relocated it will Do
because of the ordinance contract accepted
by the road when the track and switches
were made and laid qom'o years ago.
Valparaiso shippers file complaint against
the Union Pacific for\mjust switch charges.
Notices of the complaint have been duly
served upon the authorities of the road , and
the case will bo heard at the regular Juno
session of the board.
A. Ca < 4O ofMUdnnppliiE.
Rumors of n case ol ! Kidnapping are cur
rent in the heart of the city. Enough is
known to state that such an event took place
last night , but this is all. The case is iu the
hands of Sheriff MulicK , but ho refuses to
talk. There are implications that will causa
some surprise m Lincoln and at other places
where the parties are known. Names , it is
said , nro withheld for obvious reasons. The
child is said to bo of doubtful parentage.
The Postoflloo and Grounds
The plans for improving the po&tofflco
grounds , contemplated by the recent act of
congress , have just been sent to Washington.
On their approval by the supervising archi
tect , bids will bo advertised , the contract lot
and work will commence. The walk is to bo
widened around the square and the rough
and uuovon stone replaced with something
bettor. The grade on Q street is to bo
loweied to a level prescribed by the city
engineer , and stone stcds to be buUt entirely
across the front of the building. In all , the
improvements will cost 5,000.
Apropos to improvements it is well to state
that the business of the Lincoln postoftlco for
the last quarter shows an increase of 10 per
cent over the corresponding period of ono
year ago. Excluding the money order busi
ness the receipts for 18SS were , in round
numbers , $70,000. The sum ia not sufficient ,
however , to ralso the salary of Watkins' suc
cessor' , whoever ho may bo , and it will re
main the same $3,200 per annum. The
prominent aspirants for the postmastership
now arc Dr. Gcorgo B. Chapman and Judge
Parker , with a growing faith that the former
is the coming man.

The telegraphic dispatches in TUB BED of

announcement of the death , at that place of
John P. Usher in the University hospital ,
Mr. Usher was well-known throughout the
United States by reason of having been ap
pointed secretary of the Interior by Presi
dent Lincoln in 1E03. Ho was well-known
in Omaha , and in years back his countenance
was familiar to the major portion of the rest *
dents , His son , together with n Mr. Russell ,
established n foundry hero which was lo
cated at a point which is now termed "Bed
ford Place. " The firm of Usher & Russell
conducted a good business nt the start , and
among Its patrons was the Union Pacific.
After the latter established a plant hero of
its own the business of Usher & Russell
was somewhat curtailed and the firm finally
closed out. It was durinc this period that
ex-Secretary Usher was a frequent guest of
Omaha , and at ono tinio was considering
making this place his permanent homo.
