At literary dinners the health of isapolcon ,
who shot a publisher , will over bo n standing
toust ; and leponds will continue to bo re
peated as to the existence of a precious edi
tion of the blblo In which the misprint occurs
"publishers anil sinners. "
This only by way of Introduction.
While It is admittedly true "of making
books there u no end , " and authors ; nro lost
every day lii the whirlpool of oblivion , s.tlll
there Is u certain class of writers who , by
the very nature of their vocation , give to the
world under the Ktilso of "advertisement"
ccrtnin works each year , which if freed from
the touch of business would bo gems in their
way quite worthy of a place alonesldo our
Chaucer , our Homer , our Spenser , the minor
poems of Milton , the "Arabian Nights , " and
such old Rood-tiaturcd speculations as Plu
tarch's "Morals. "
And those writers who do not look to the
publishers for an existence , who are beyond
the fads and fancies of the reading public ,
who do not tremble at the Judgment of the
critics but receive their monthly checks with .
the eiisy assurance of having earned them , if
not by the sweat of their face at least by
their capacity for rustling , us a class may bo
denominated under the general head of "rail
road advertising agents. "
And these potential factors in the suc
cess of a corporation lovb sum
mer with an Intinlto tenderness , for
It brings about a change in their dally lives , a
letting up in the manufacture of now words
nnd line phrases which are woven into the
story of how to reach the mountains of Nid-
nod , or the lakes of IJest via the Great In
terdenominational Trunk railway , the
overland route to the Golden Onto.

Way systems join their families by
"Moorlund , brake or fall , "
to listen to the diapasons ot the universe
until the harvest moon warns them that
cnothcr season of work has commenced , the
Winter of their discontent. .
But In alt the wide range of railroad lltor-
nturo Issued this ycar.tho recent publications
of the Union Pacltlo system deserve more
than a mere mention en passant. Comprising
n round dozen pamphlets they show an indi
viduality that is delightfully refreshing.

that will bo in great demand now that they

In a condensed form , handsomely Illustrated ,

information , the traveler requires of the won
derful country touched by the Union Pacific.
Many readers of TUB Urn : will recall with
n great deal of genuine pleasure ,
the column which Mr. Bar
rows , uscd to edit In the old
Hopublican days under the pleasing caption
of "Driftwood. " Hero onn was always sure
of finding something that would take the
sting Irom llfo , something that would temper
the "canting cares" of this work-a-day
world of ours , Breezy In his descriptions ,
using his pen at times as the Italian uses
bis stiletto , hitting hero and puncturlnc the
bubble thoro. About that weekly column
there was n delicious fascination.
Although removed from the surroundings
of the past , Mr. Harrows still has the vivid
power of making word pictures as vou will
readily discern in the following description
of the Mulr glacier , which Is only one of
countless excellent bits In the now books and
Which the author felicitously calls
A UKMOtlV VICTUIIK.

Tlio Superior Advantages of Oinnha
For n Factory.
It should not and will not bo cllfllcult for
Omaha to secure u beet sugar factory , says
tno Grand Island Beet Sugar Enterprise , If
only an oifort Is mndo lu that direction.
Omaha not only enjoys the distinction of be
ing the largest city in Nebraska , but is also
the "Gato City" to the great northwest. It
has many advantages over small towns In
point of advantage for a beet-sugar factory.
It should not be difficult to sccuro fully 5,000 ,
acres of land In close proximity to the city
upon which to grow boats , and as it will re
quire fully ten dollars an aero of hand labor
to grow nnd harvest the beets ready for thu
factory , this vast amount of help could bo se
cured In the city of Omaha alone , requiring
the distribution of fully ? : > 0OUO principally
durlnc tno seamen of school vacation , thus
affording an opportunity for hundreds of
school-bovs to earn from Jlfty cents to a dollar
lar n day during the season of thinning out
the beets , ns H Is the custom of paying boys
all thev can earn , without regard to ago or
sizo. Some boys here nt Grand Island nro
on the men's list. Such boys as show a dis
position to bo industrious nnd perform their
woru well are found to bo very desirable for
this kind of work.
If Omaha would make an effort In this
direction it certainly would be attended with
success , as Omaha always secures what she
undertakes to get.
Again Omaha is just the place for n largo
refinery , whore the raw sugar from fully
twenty-five factories coula be refined at a
much less expense than can bo done In the
factory. The sugar then Is In the natural
trade center for distribution. This Is the
custom as curried on now In both Prance
.Uul Germany , whcro many of the raw fac
tories work from" 300 to COO tons of beets
every twenty-four hours nnd some even
moro.Vo hope to sea an effort made In
Omaha to secure a' beet sugar factory , nnd
with the effort secure ono. This will on-
cour.igo other towns , not only In Nebraska ,
but also in Dakota and Iowa to secure raw
beet sugar factories , nnd thus enable Omaha
to add a refinery to Its many other Industries
and bccomo the ' distributing point for
1'iircntn Kead Tills.

Since the above statement was made up ,
some of the funds are not lu as good shape as
on that dato.
Owing to the heavy court expenses the
county fund is about exhausted , and. war
rants will tie stamped , "Not paid for want of
funds. " When so stamped they will bo reg
istered and draw interest at the rate of 7
poi- cent per annum until paid. The road
tuna is also in a somewhat depleted condition
as the payment of $10,000 has made a bigholo
in the surplus that was on hand.
The bridge fund shows a balance of $3,299.71
on band , but tbero will not be so largo u bal
ance after p.ivmont has been made for the
construction of the $ (5,000 ( culvert over Mill
creek ai , Florence , the contract for which is
now in the hands of tno county commission
ers.i'ho county treasurer does not view thh
financial condition with any degree of alarm ,
out Instead takes rather a hopeful view of
tlio situation , though ho Is of the opinion that
the county will have to run rather close until
after the delinquent tax bale.
The leavy for " the year amounted to $181-
2S3.70 , and It" is estimated that about ono-
huU of the amount has been collected. Of
that remaining duo and delinquent , compar
ing this with former years , 4 per cent wjll
bo collected before the salo. The sale will
bring in a good round sum , and it Is thought
that the amount will run the county through
until the now levy is available. If it should
not , the county would pay tlio seven per cent
interest on the warrants "not taken up.
UcgurU'ng the warrants Issued now nnd
not paid , all of the county ofilclals regard
them as a good financial investment for the
county , as they draw only saven per cent nn-
nual interest , and that from the date when
presented to the treasurer for payment , while
the taxes that art ) delinquent and unpaid
draw ton per cent.
The evils resulting from habitual costlvo-
ncss arc many and serious ; out the use of
harsh , drastic purgatives is quite as danger
ous. In Aycr's Pills , however , the patient
has n mild hut eficctlvo aperient , superior to
all others , especially for family use.

Price Cuts no Fi m-j in the City II ill
The council committee on buildings and
property will report in favor of another cost
ly experiment at the meeting of the council
tonight , and there will bo o row bigger
than the ono kicked up ever the report in
favor of purchasing a few high priced smoke
consumers unknown to fame for the city hull.
This time the promised trouble arises ever
the committee's peculiar method ot getting
plans and bids for furnishing the now city
hull. Some tlmo ago the committee , which is
composed of Ostnoff , Tuttle nnd Spncht , pub
lished a c-ill for plans and bids for furnish
ing the now city hall. That's all there was to
It. Parties wishing to band In the furnish
ings were required to visit the city , make
their own sketches of the building and llx up
a plan of their own for fitting it up.
Two bids have been received , Ono of thorn
Is from the Andrews company of Chicago ,
nnd the other Is by Mr. Hnkoman who
has an ofltco in this city. No ono
knows what these bids nro nnd it would not
make any difference If they did. The plans
nro doubtless very different so that the prlco
cuts no figure. It Is a competition of plans
nnd not of prices.
There will bo n kick when these bids are
reported to the council. Some of the mem
bers will insist tluit the plans for the fur
nishing tie decided upon and that all of the
bidders ho required to name their figures for
ono ! < lnd of work. This , they claim , is the
only way to got any show of competition ,
There are a number of firms in the city who
want to bid on the work but don't feel Ilko
spending several hundred dollars In prepar
ing sketches nnd nlans without any ussur-
anco that they will be considered at all.

ter making" at his 'placo near Thirty-third
and Jackson streets. ' Ho claimed to
inako the butter out of cow's '
milk , but thn revenue department
bccnmo suspicious 6t the product , and Mr.
Wiggins , accompanied by another Inspector ,
dropped in on Mr. Wnrron at his butter shop
ono evening and took charge of about live
pounds of the alleged buttor. Mr. Warren
asked them what they meant , nnd Mr. Wig
gins Informed him that ho was lu the employ
of the United States revenue department.
"Do you want mo to go nlong with you to
see the butter tested I" inked the butter
"When wo got ready for you wo will como
and get you , " was the significant reply.
This is the storv as told by Warren -
ron to his neighbor Just before
leaving the city. That evening ho disap
peared and has not returned since. His
family waited a counlo of weeks in vain for
his return but finally came to the conclusion
that ho had gone to stay. The wife and
children have gene to Council Bluffs to live
"I think It was a mean trick In Wiggins to
scare my tenant out of town , " said Mr.
Thomas Gray , who owns the house where
Wnrrcn lived. "Ho was my only , good
tenant , nnd an honest man. "
"Did you oversee him make butter ! "
"Yes , I saw him there at work. "
"Did ho make the butter out of milk ! "
"Ho made several dlflerentgradesor buttor.
I thiiiK the best butter ha made was mndo
from milk. The poorer butter , I guess , had
some lard mixed with it , but ho sold it very
cheap. It was pure. It intent have been
made of skim-mtllc and lard , but it was pure
butter all the samo. And then ho sold It so
cheap. Whoso business was It Hit was made
of lard just so It was clean and he sold It
cheap ! WIgclns hud no business to scare my
tenant out of towu. "

If you meet one of your intimate friends on the street with a nobby
light derby hat set jauntily on his head , and a satisfied "I've saved a

our light derbys that have sold at two fifty , two seventy-five and three

UNION PACIFIC PIOXEBUS.
Their AHSoulatlnii U III Hold Itn Six
teenth Annual Picnic.
The Pioneer association of Union Pacific
railway employes will celebrate the sixteenth
anniversary of the organization sometime
next month by holdluc a picnic at Fremont.
The date has not yet been dolln'toly llxed ,
but will proD.ibly bo the 23id. An Invitation
will bo extended to all of the employes in the
shops and olllccs and the company will fur
nish n special train for the occasion.
Tno Pioneer association was organized In
August , 1S75 , at a meeting held In the gen
eral ofllces of the company. At that meeting
there wore present S. II , II. Clurlc , A. M.
Collett , George E. Strut man , Thomas II.
Dailey , John Gordon , William Dwyer , C. B.
Havens , John Curtis und several others.
The association was duly organized and the
purposes of the association wore declared to
be to unite perpetually all employes of the
Union Pacific railway company who were of
good moral character who had been in the
employ of the company ten years or moro ;
to give all moral 'and material aid in its
power to members ; to cultivate friendly and
social relations bjtwecn members , for his
torical or any other purpose which cumu
within the scope and meaning of the associa
The society became a strong factor In
Union Pacific affairs uud was given every
recognition by the ofllciaK Picnics aud en
tertainments" nil kinds without number
wore given , and durinc its curlier years the
society flourished and its membership in
creased rapidly. It was regarded an honor to
bo a member of the association , und men
looked forward to the time when they would
have completed their tenth year in the ser
vice of the company nnd bccomo eligible to
membership. The admission fee und dues
were pluced at a merely nominal figure , bat
them was always enough money In the treas
ury to foot the bills when any entertainment
was decided upon.
When ono of the members took unto him
self a 'life partner the rest of the members
did their level best to give him a good send-
off. When death seized upon n member the
remaining members paid him thu lust tribute
During recent years , however , the associa
tion has fullon into innocuous desuetude and
all interest seemed to have died out. Some
of the older members decided that it would
never do to lot the old ussociation die out ,
nnd a meeting was held last Monday at which
the organization was rejuvenated and put
upon a solid basis again. Now ofllccrs wore
elected , and the sixteenth anniversary will
bo celebrated In fitting stylo.
The now ofllcers nro us follows : Georco E.
Strutmnn , president ; A. A. Gibson , vice
president ; James Trail , secretary ; John
Rico , treasurer.
