A. THE COURIER. 11 r t iL y (- X . In Memoriam. 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 influence. 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. C. H. Gere, H. B. Lowry, Committee. Lincoln, Nebr., March G, 1900. Washington better. (special correspondence.) 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 the children. 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 corder. A Merry Rehearsal. Young Chinnington (passionately) Mr. Gillte-E(?ge, I love your only daugh terlove her madly, devotedly, wildly, 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 out her sweet presence ever at my side .life to me will be but one long, dreary 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 time you happen to be in a town where I am giving my entertainment, just mention your name at the door, and it sha'n't cost you a cent to see the show. The Smart Set. "From Life." 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 World.
