philosophy in the university of Nebras
ka, should come to the conclusion that
there was no god and that that belief
was unnecessary to religion, that immor
tality was a superstition and that relig
ion bad no esrential connection with
ethics or morality, he should be free to
announce his discovery without danger
of losing his position. Hut if the same
teacher taught that theologies and
churches are humbugs, religion a super
stition, ethics and morals a curse, he
should be discharged, for he is insane.
Even free speech is limited to fields of
investigation. So a professor in politi
cal economy, jnight say, "such are the
principles of government." and though
they dispute accepted views and ma
chine practice he should be upheld in
bis "lehrfreiheit." Should he say, "all
government is Prong and government in
the United States must be abolished,
he is too ignorant a fool to teach. There
are limitations to university freedom,
but they are not dictated by bigotry.
As to Stanford university, I can not
see where freedom of speech (of the de
cree represented by Harvard or Joh jb
Hopkins for instance,) was interfered
with. It seems more like a rebellion
against petticoat government. Here I
suppose, Miss Editor you arise in your
insulted dignity, but do not forget that
I am the most radical advocate for the
complete emancipation of women from
the despotism of church, state and so
ciety. As to endowed schools, I do not be
lieve in them. Let the public take care
of itself. The people of Nebraska do
not half appreciate the glorious possibil
ities of the state university. These en
dowed things are nothing but self-erect
ed monuments to vanity, cowardice and
superstition. No one was ever given to
the people, out of love for and interest
in culture.. Such endowmentfl.are either
monuments to vanity or margins on
post-mortem dividends. Stanford is
the sickliest example of the lot, a monu
ment to the memory of a stripling who
might, or might not have lived to be of
service to humanity. It is all right for
parents to love and cherish the memory
of children, but these monuments to self
or to a dead ancestor are disgusting.
Yours for freedom of speech, for wo
men as well as men and war on the
cowardice that would destroy it.

aaya Col. Chas. P. Button in the Feb
ruary New Lippincott. "Judge Doug
las said to me once when the talk had
fallen on Henry Clay: 'How Lincoln
admirea and hates that man! Do you
know the reason? It is this: Back in
old Whig days Lincoln, who bad sorveil
his party mighty well in the state and
out of it, and who was known as a rising
man, went to Kentucky on a visit.
While there ho called on Clay and waa
beautifully snubbed. He has novor for
gotten it he never will forget. Vot tho
snub made not the least difference in
bis party loynlty. When Clay was run
ning for president, Lincoln worked for
him as hard as the nuxt man; but ho
did not try to help him win tho nomina
tionthat would have been too much to
expect'."
Tho "Heart of a Child," by Josephino
Dodge Daskam. which opens the Feb
ruary number of McCIure's magazine,
is a story of unusual and profound in
terest. In it breathes a charm of a ton
derest sympathy, and that sympathy is
interpreted by consummate art. Tho
heart of a child, a heart eager, and thril
ling, brimming with the vagaries' or
jostling dreams, tho heart is laid bare
before ub and we gain glimpses of all
the wonderful life in it. Vet tho revela
tion is made with gentlenesp, with fond
ness such that the author's analytical
r-kill is masked. The story is realistic in
the best sense; its theme is boautiful,
and the beautiful truth is beautifully
told.
It is a far cry from the heart of a
child to Richard Croker. Nevertheless.
William Allen White, in a character
study of Tammany's ruler, insists on a
certain childlike simplicity in the na
ture of this political "boss." The arti
cle is written with that brilliancy which
distinguishes the author, and its effect
is to explain something of the mystery
in Croker'a power over his fellojVB.
The transition seems less violent when
we pass from Croker to the "World of
Graft," by Josiah Flynt. This unique
writer is the only one who, by right of
personal experience, may be justly re
garded as the voice of the under-world.
In his pretent article he considers the
criminal conditions of Chicago from the
view-point of the criminals themselves.
The contribution is curiously entertain
ing, while it is, too, a sociological Btudy
of value.
LITERARY NOTES.
The Test of Wit.
"The only way, therefore, to try a
piece of wit is to translate it into a dif
ferent language," wrote Addion in the
Spectator for .May 10th, 1711. "If it
bears the test, you may pronounce it
true; but if it vanishes in the experi
ment, you may conclude it to have been
a pun." Unfortunately for Addison's
stricture, however, some of the most un
doubted puns have not only been trans
slated into a foreign language, but have
been doubly witty through the transla
tion. Some years ago the assistant editor
of the Levant Herald, the Constantino
ple journal, celebrated by Mark Twain
in the "Innocents Abroad," was a Mr.
Percy .Pinkerton, a young man of con
siderable culture and something of a
poet. In the course of time he was suc
ceeded by a gentleman by the name of
Pinter, clever but still commonplace, of
whom it was wittily said that "il Man
quait le ton.' New Lippincott for February.
Spoiled children are not the children
of self-sacrih'ce, but of selfishness and
cowardice- the selfishness which seeks
the easiest way; the cowardice which
shrinks from facing dangers thereby en
gendered. February Ladies' Home
Journal.
No sensible girl dreads a single life.
Old maid, as a phrase, has dropped from
the common vacabulary. The spinster
has her honored place in the community
and is as useful, as happy and as com
fortably Bituated as ber married sister.
February Ladies Home Journal.
Love your children and they will love
you in spite of all your shortcomings;
keep faith with them and they will keep
faith with you; treat them courteously
and they will be courteous; maintain
high ideals and they will follow them;
make them the centre of your life and
they will make you the centre of their
lives. Caroline Leslie Field in the Feb
ruary Ladies' Home Journal.
Lincoln's Attitude towards Henry day.
"I think Lincoln spoke truth in say
ing he had neither friend to reward nor
enemies to punish, but, after all, be wns
very human, keenly sensitive to Blights."
Both my mother and I can see now as
we look back that she was too anxious
that we should always do right in every
small detail; she tried too hard to 6hield
ua from the consequences of our own
ignorance and persistency. It would
have been better, I think, if she had
given us a Httlo more liberty even to
