'HIGH FIVH GENTS
In tho limt four weeks Lincoln has
been visited by Bevernl storms with elec
trical nceoinimninients thnt have caused
more or lees inconvenience to tho public,
in Rome iustahccscalliug Jurth remarks
not particularly complimentary to tho
electric street car service superintended
by Mr. Littlo anil Mr. Uphain. On at
le'ttst two occasions, whert the storm was
at its height, tho power had to bo cut
otT tind tho cars were left "dead" in all
inrt of tho city full of passengers who
were In mi irato or so-so fratne.,of mind,
according to disposition and tho dlstuuce
rroni homo. There aro soino people ill
this world who uro always grumbling
when tho sun isn't shining, or when they
are not walking on velvet carpet or sip
ping tea with n silver sioon, or when
there is oven tho minutest speck on tho
horizon, and when tho sun is shining
and tho birds are singing and tho cur
rent of pleasuro and happiness Hows free
of the debris of disappointment, they
accept it nil ns a mutter of course and
never think of thunking anybody. As a
rulo the people vho grumblo and com
plain are tho people who seldom have
time to say anything pleasant or. agree
able. This j people, tho grumblers and
malcontents, have lately been busy hurl
ing anathemas and maledictions and
other similar articles at the management
of tho Lincoln Street Railway company
for the interruption of tho service during
the electrical storms, and thoy huvo ap
parently derived considerable satisfuco
t'.on from tho said employment. It is
possible that had these same people been
at the iwwer house of the street railway
company beforo tho current was cut off
and witnessed tho electricity playing
high jinks with thoexpensivemiichinory,
they might have been n little moro rea
sonable. .They might; but the chunces
ure they would have grumbled just tho
same. Convincing a woman against her
will-is as nothing compared to tho tusk
of pounding reason into tho skulls that
aome people carry around with them.
Hut tho general public may bo interested
in knowing somo of tho troubles of tho
street cur magnates who are popularly
supioscd to bo rolling in wealth, and
who, it is said, cut off tho powor and
shatter tho timo schedule every once in
awhile just for tho fun of tho thing, or
to amuse Dudgo and Toddy, who are
sometimes as greatly interested in see
ing the wheels stop us they arc in seeing
them go around.
Every street car is provided with a
lightning arrester, and at tho powor
house there aro innumerable devices to
divert the overcharge of electricity from
the generators; but while electrical en
gineering has reached a degree of devel
opment that approaches the marvelous,
there are yot many things to be accom
plished. Electricity has been harnessed,
it Is true, but all tho Edisons und West
inghouses and Thompsons and Hustons
and Siemenses have not beeu able to
hitch the steed up single. Storage bat
teries, ono in each car, are still u hope
held out by the future. Meanwhile all
the curs must bo propelled by ono cen
tral power. So in a smaller way there
are many defects in electrical appli
ances. Tho best skill has not been able'
to suvo telephones und all electric sor-'
vice from injury by lightning. Tho big
generutors huvo magnets to draw off tho
awful force, und there nro safety fuses
galore; but when tho atmosphere is
heavily charged all of these precautions
are practically useless, and to savo
.human lifo and valuable property, tho
power has to bo turned off until things
ease up a little. In Omaha and other
large cities tho street car service is often
at u standstill for three or four hours at
a time during severe electrical storms.
Lincoln has been moro fortunate in this
respect. The company has taken a littlo
more risk, und tho interruption to truffle
has seldom lasted more than un hour.
Probubly at soino time in the near
future an enterprising pluywright or
theatrical manager may desire to present
on the stage a spectacular vision of the
Devil's great business office, with tho
fiery furnace and sheets of flume und in
fernal fury scattered ulxiut in glittering
chunks. An electric power house dur
ing un electricul storm while tho current
is still on, would furnish him somo ex
cellent material in the way of ideus.
Tho lines rudinting from the central stu
Hon gather in tho electricity from ull
points, ami it swcxips down on tho iowor
houBe like a forerunner of tho great
climax to life's melodrama that certain
people uro alwuys expecting. Bluq
flume glows from tho fuses 'and the
switching machinery on tho wall, and
lire Hushes from tho great generators in
a inunner thut is jKisitlvely terrifying.
Electrical fireworks pluy here and then
and tho tout ensemble, as Tom Cooke
would say, is something like a small ve.-t
pocket edition of tho Last Duys of Pom
peii. While this is going on thq machinery
is being damaged und tho life of the em
ployes is in danger. When tho lightning
gets into the generators tho concentration
issolfreut tiiut tho wiro wrapping is
melted und tho machines aro "burned
out." Tho damage in this way alone in
th- recent storms amounted to several
hundred dollurs. Of courso when the
pow;ir is cut- off, there is no further
trrn'tble; but In tho meantime the curs
are standing still out in the rain mid tho
passengers ,nro getting uneasy. Like
street puving, every kind of street cur
service litis its objectionable feutures.
Until there nro some further improve
ments or now inventirns, there wlh"

in each of these moves, und it is certain

Onco in awhilo some one raises an
objection to music in tho public schools.
There never was anything but whut
wu8 objected to by somebody. But tho
splendid showing made ' by the musical
department of tho Lincoln schools at
tho recent graduating exercises of tho
senior grammar schools must have made
it apparent that music Is a very valu
able und desirable feature of public in
struction lu this city. Thero were muny
favorablo comments oh the excellence of
tho vocal purt of tho program. Mrs.1
Jennle.M. Sanderson, who for the past
two or three years has been tho super
visor of music, hus performed her duties
in u wholo-heurted way and the results
huvo been most satisfactory. She hus
aroused much interest in music among
tho pupilB, und she has succeeded ad
mirably in using tho material at hand to
good advantage; Tho chorus of one
hundred und fifty boys was particularly
sweot und effective, showing careful
training, und ull. of the musical numbcra
wore greatly enjoyed. Mrs. Sunderson
is to bo congratulated on the extremely
creditable showing made by her depart
ment of the city schools.

There is of late an increasing demand
for foamy literatuie, In which there Is
just enough acid to Impart u turt flavor.
It answers the same puroso in the world
of books that spicy comedies like "The
Henrietta," 'Charity Ball," "Mr. Wilkin
son's Widows," or to go n long way buck,
"School For Scundul," answer In the
more contracted territory of the stage.
It is a kind of artistic diversion, a fastid
ious trifling, that hus enough spirit In it
to make It interesting to a wide range of
different kinds of people.
Hurpcr & Brothers have just published
a book of this Ilk thut is pretty sure to
meet with a coidltd reception. Peihtips
tho fact that tho author wan but a few
months ago u visitor in thlo city may in
vest the book with a special interest for
some Lincoln people. Miss Lilian Bull,
whose address, "Prairie Ave., Chicago."
is certainly not rich in literary suggest
ivonesB, has been particularly happy in
tho choice of a mime for her book. Isn't
thero something striking in tho title
"THE LOVE AFKAIUH Of AN OLD MAID."
I believe that u !ook with a name like
that on u book store or library shelf
would attract mo, und my susceptibilities
ure not particularly unlike those of a
great many other people.
Thero is a quotation on the title iiuge
of "The Lovo Affuirs of un Old Muld"
that shows the temper of tho book
"Some shins reach happy ports thut uro
not steered." It hus been authentically
stated thut Miss Boll's Ixxik is
not in uny sense un auto
biography; but tho reaJer who
follows tho Old Maid until the end
stares him abruptly in tho face, somehow
imagines thut hor expressed ideas of
matrimony closely approximate the real
thoughts of tho writer on this interesting

Tho twelve chapters of tho hook uro
devoted not to tho Old Maid's own
lovo affuirs, but to the lovo affuirs of tho
people around her.
There is a great deal of disappointment
in tho lives of tho men and women whoso
"affairs" aro so knowingly discussed.
"Alice Asbury hus made shipwreck" of
her lovo affuirs. "Tho girl is actively
miserable und her husband is indiffer
ently uncomfortable" liectiuso she mar
ried without lovo to spito another whom
she really loved and with whom she
quarreled, und becuuso hor husband ninr
ried hor "fresh from boing jilted bySullio
Cox." The happy couple novor got over
