As Honorable Nathan S. Harwood,
president of the tlaydon Art club, has
.been taken away by an untimely death,
it is peculiarly fitting that there be put
upon the records some expression of ap
preciation of our late president.
Mr. Harwood was born in Michigan
June 18, 1813, but spent his early man
hood in Iowa. After finishing his col
lege course, which had been interrupted
by his participation in the civil war. he
came to Lincoln, where, for almost
thirty years, he was identified with the
growth of the city. He was a man of
affairs, with much experience and a wide
The benefit of this experience and in
fiuence was given to the Haydon Art
club, for he was not only its first, but
only, president, and from its inception
was its staunch friend. During the
period of its existence, he took from his
busy life time to meet with us and to
preside over our deliberations, encour
aging us in every way, with his presence,
his advice and bis purse.
Cultured, widely traveled, a success
ful business man with a catholic and
ready sympathy, he was an invaluable
member of the association. Just, con
siderate to others, with an attractive
personality, he was an much loved as he
was respected. His many services to
the community, while valued, call for
no special mention here, but of his help
and care for the promotion and welfare
of this club we can but express our ap
preciation, and regret his early taking
off, which leaves a vacancy that may not
be filled, but a memory that shall always
be honored and cherished.

It has been noticed here that there
is a movement on foot in Nebraska to
raise a popular subscription for Mrs.
John M. Stotsenburg, widow of the
colonel. Washington papers have made
mention of the fact that Stotsenburg
was a hero, who, like Lawton, died at
the head of his troop?, and that Ne
braska was doing the proper thing in
raising a fund to assist the widow and
Mrs. Stotsenburg lives here with rela
tives. Her health is bo bad that she is
under a physician's care all of the time.
She has small children to care for. In
the meantime the proposition to grant
her a pension has probably been de
feated for the present, at least, by the
rrove of Senator Allen, who introduced
a pension bill in the other end of con
gress, without consulting either Mrs.
Stotsenburg or the introducer of the
house bill, the intention being to get a
little cheap advertising and at the same
time to interfere with the house bill,
which should have had the right of way.
The two bills call for different amounts,
and it is not probable that either will
get through. It will be a good idea to
watch Senator Allen and bin bosom
friends and see how much they donate
to the popular fund. Rushville Re

Mr. Gillte-E(?ge, I love your only daugh

and with all. the strength and might of
my being ! I adore her as a miser loves
his horde of yellow gold, worship her as
an idolater worships his fetish. With

.life to me will be but one long,
Old Gillte-Edge (savagely) I don't
care what it will be, young man you
can't have her, and that settles it !
Young Chinnington (cheorily) Oh,
all right! all right! If one don't ask
he won't receive, you know. Say. old
man, now that it is all over, what do
you think of that as a sample of my elo
cutionary ability, anyhow ? Pretty
smooth, eh ? You see, I had decided to
start out as a public teciter in case you
refused to accept me as a son-in-law,
and I rather guess its up to me now, all
right enough. Well, so long. No hard
feelings on ray side, I assure you. Any

The Smart Set.
The greatest evil of divorce is the one
of which iittle is said the catastrophe
to the children from the disruption of
the family. An incident from current
New York life will illustrate better than
a thousand generalities:
In a divorce suit that created a great
deal of talk not long ago the court gave
the father the custody oi the children.
He has put them in charge of one of his
female relatives. The younger child is
a little girl just large enough to write
in a large scrawling hand and read
words of one syllable, if the type is
large and her mind not too tired. A few
days ago, about midnight, the nursery
governess missed the child. She was
not in her little bed, not in ber room nor
in the houee and the front door was
unaccountably open. The governeES
ran into the street and to the corner,
where she presently saw, under a street
lamp, far down the block, a small figure
marching steadily away from "home"
through the lonely, bog-naunted dark
ness. The governess called, the child
looked back and then ran on until one
of her shoes came off. This enabled the
governess quickly to overtake her. She
had on her hat, and a coat buttoned all
awry over her night gown. She bad
not stopped to put on her stockings or
to button her shoes.
"Oh, let me go on !'' she sobbed.
"Why, where do you want to go, you
naughty little girl ?" said the governess.
"I waited till you were asleep," re
plied the child, "and then I started out
to find my mamma."
And they had thought the child had
forgotten, because they had told her
never to speak of her mother and she
bad said nothing about her for more
than six months.
There is much brave talk about "su
preme duty to one's own individuality"
and about "the irrepreesible conflict of
hostile temperaments." But it sinks
away ic shamefaced silence before the
appealing voice of a forlorn little child
looking for her lost mother. New York
