Impractical In the plans of the Gaelic

lines. To get the brist development of
their plans funds are of course necessary.
Bo It Is the Intention here, as elsewhere,
to appeal to those among the Irish peo

"Here's to the heroes of tha year just
closed," was the toast offered by the Care
ful Observer yesterday afternoon when he
and the Oldest Inhabitant sat on stools in
a dairy lunchroom and drank cups of cereal
"While wandering; around town reading;
I'ncle Sam's billboard advertisements for
male help wanted in the navy, X have been
thinking; that thousands of last year's
heroes 'wore bom to blush unseen,' yet
did not waste the fragrance of their deeds
on desert air. I do not have in mind the
heroes who, night after night, received
passing plaudits for mimic deeds, but real
flesh and blood heroes who have fought
the battles of life for themselves and loved
ones, without a whine or whimper, without
thought of roward or to be placed on the
free list. The submerged majority of
heroes are those who plod through the
slough of despond with a stiff upper lip, be
lieving hopefully that beyond the pale of
present ills and misfortunes are green pas
tures, flowing brooks and good ftehing,"
continued the Careful Observer.
Limelight Kot Essential.
"It has long been my belief that the
name ot hero is not necessarily synonymous
with valiant deeds on the bloody Held of
battle, the rlBklntf of life or limb in vari
ous ways on land or sea for that of un
other, or the tossing of a recalcitrant gaso
line stove from a top-story window; all
of which are, however, deds of bravery,
yet easily overestimated. To those who
have figured in such acts of heroism dur
ing the last year, I doff my hat and say,
'Bravo! yet I believe there were more
who lived the lives of heroes every day
and for whom the Master will have a spe
cial blessing when the great roll
shall be called up yon. To the latter
I not only doff my hat, but would Invite
all over to chicken dinner if Ball was not
bothered with rheunuitlsm and rather short
of chairs," replied tho Oldest Inhabitant,
aa he pressed two slices ot buttered toatt
with his knife.
Wbat a. Uve Hero Really Is.
"My observations during the year just
finished have been thut we In Omaha grew
in the matter of heroism even aa we ad
vanced In the more material things," con
tinued the observing drlnktr of cereal cof
fee. "It is no idle task to be a hero In the
strife, in the face of trials and open
switches; to be stouthearted when the roof
leaks and the rent comes around at the
same time; to bear up and notice things
when your daughter wants a sealskin
sacijue and the boy craves for a new sled
the same day. To be more serious, how
ever, the greatest heroes using the noun
without gender are those who 'with each
low, descending sun, view from their
mansion some worthy actions done' to
change the poet's language. That person
Is a hero who suppresses his own cares
and troubles and leavrs pleasant words
and smiles In his. wake, though his heart
may be racked with things the world
knows not of and cares less. He Is a hero
who always moves up In front of a crowded
street car when the conductor requests him
to, though he may have paid 6 cents to
stand where he was standing and though
by moving up he may have his corns
trespassed on and come In contact with
a man who relishes garlic He Is a hero
who gets up in the middle of the night
with a song on bis lips and warms the
baby's milk for the tired wife who had so
much to bear the day before. He is a hero
who lives within his means and saves a
little, though by so doing he may smoke
stogies until his pay Is raised, wear last
year's Overcoat until the baby carriage Is
paid for and be content with a mouth harp
until he can afford a pia:a. He Is a hero
who Is not always ready to fight at the
drop of a hat or at defeat In an argument,
but who Is ever willing to protect the weak
and innocent and lift the fallen one. He Is
a hero who will turn the washing machine
for his wife rather than sit around the
bouse and talk of setting tha world on
What Aboat the HerolaesI

logue ot heroes T" questioned the Oldest
"Bless the women folks," replied the man
who observes, as he raised the second cup
of cereal coffee to his lips. (Drinks coffee.)
"Nearly all women are heroines," he con
tinued. I believe there Is more real hero

will pout when the goods won't match, the

to give each other a 'square deal' and the

BERKA FREES ALL AND QUITS
Police Judge Discharges Prisoners
and Leaves Bench (or Bryce
Police Judge Berka was Just twenty sec
ends dispensing Justice at the people's bar
New Year's morning. A bunch of twenty
retly of.'j darr Mr.ed up before tho
mdge. After turning hl rubber stamp so
tho Impression would r ,d "January J. K06,"
when placed face downwaiui? on a pleci of
paper, and then throwing the 1M5 calendar
In the wastebasket, the Judge addressed the
gathering of expectant ones before him.
Rising to his magisterial height, the Judgo
said: "This being the first day of the year
nineteen hundred and six, I am going to
discharge all of you. I hope you will start
the new year right. Be good and you will
have money and better clothes. You may
all go now. Happy New Year."
Everyone smiled but Boston Green, who
was hiding his diminutive form behind the
taller prisoners, as a few weeks ago he was
discharged on the promise he would so con
duct himself as to not be brought up In
police court during the waning days of
Judge Berka's term, whio. will end next
Wednesday morning. Bo, when Boston
Green found himself before Judge Berka on
New Year's morning, after what he had
promised the magistrate, there arose In the
heart of Mr. Green a feeling of contrition
and shame so much so that he hid behind
the other prisoners and rode to freedom
with the rank and file.
Judge Berka's official term expired with
the last of the year, yet he will guide the
ship of state at the people's bar for a few
days until Judge-elect Crawford shall have
become acquainted a little.
