Preachers may declaim; but It Ih
nevertheless hard to render up thanks
when hunger gnawa within and cold

Not In a great many years has there
been so much distress in the country as
now, ahd the Thanksgiving proclama
tioa, addressed as it is, to all pcoplo, in
cludea those who are iu want of tho
commonest necessaries of life.
The people who are Boated by glowing
firesides, who are living in comfort and
plenty, are, In a general sort of way,
belleveis in tho Almighty and His good
ness. Boata of them are very firm in tho

cent years, when people should open up
their hcartB and pockct-booka and
pantries, It is now. It you havo reason
to be thankful for tho good things you

heart, and glvo anothor reason for thank -

that He U still watching over Ills child
ren Turn Call, which by the way, 1b a very
peculiar republican paper, advocating
the populist principle of cheap money
and the democratic tariff idea, accuses
the people who voted against Holcomb
on the ground that the election of tho
populist candidate wouldhurtNobraska's
credit in the east, and result in serious
injury to tho Btato, of having "no brains."
Borne things are so patent that it scorns
ridiculous to explain thorn. Will tho
Call deny, that the credit of evory
western state In which tho populists
have obtainod control, has materially
" declined T Does it not know that in Kan
sab the erstwhile success of tho fanati
cal populists sounded the knell of progress
and prosperity lor some time 10 comor
The defeat of Holcomb wus particularly
valuable to the people of Nebraska, bo
cause with the example of Kansas, bo
tore the public it emphasized tho fact
that In Nebraska, tho adjoining Btato
the people are still reasonable, rational
beings; and it interposed a check to
populist success that will prove effectual
in shortening tho existence of that party
of crasy ghost dancer, and prophets of
Btisfortune. The Oulft ideas are, in
one instances, strikingly unique.
It is a fact that nobody will dispute
that the burden of taxation in this city
v. U fast reaching the point when it will
Im unbearable, and theJVetriln calling
attention to this most important subject,
and demanding a lessening of the tax
rate, is engaged in a good cause, and is
performing a service that may be pro
ductive of valuable results.

At tho lust meeting of tho city coun
cil Mayor Weir submitted a proposition
in tho interest of tho laboring element
in this city that is entirely practicable,
uud tho ideas ho advances should bo
carried out so far aa -wsslblo, to tho ond
that a moasuro of relief may bo provided
for tho unemployed. Tho mayor pro
poses, in tho first place, that mon bo
employed oh hulf time iu all depart
ments whoro this can bo done without
dotrimont to tho public service, in order
that tho benefits at tho disposal
of tho city may bo moro widely
distributed. Then it is uracil that as
much work us possible bo provided in
tho street and Bower departments.
Thoro is u groat deal of work in these
departments that can bo performed by
common labor, and it should bo ro ar
ranged as to afford tho greatest relief to
those most deserving. Tho mayor also
suggestB that all citizens who can givo
privato employment, oithor in business
or domestic sorvico, report to tho heads
of departments any opportunity thoy
may nave ror worn, a muo systematic
treatment of tho subject of providing
relief for tho unemployed will make it
possible to accomplish much good.
Now that tho Rov Shepherd bus com
menced to preach ubout tho ovil things
in this city, wo hopo that ho will tako
up tho subject of Lincoln's sidewalks.
Tho sidewalks of Lincoln, most de
structive in tholr tendencies, und ap
parently Incorrigible in their wickedness,
constitute a most alluring themo for a
preacher as protlclont in word-painting
ub tho pastor of tho Gruco M. E.
Tho sidewalks of Lincoln aro a pitfall
ic tho path of ovory citizen, a constant
source of dungor, und a monaco to tho
well -being of tho pcoplo.
T'oro is no good in tuom. JLiioy aro
a snare und a delusion.
Thoy cuuso unrighteous thoughts,
bring forth unholy words, und provoko
to deeds to violence. Their influence is
wholly bad, and thoy aro u blight on
tho fair famo of tho city, u foul oxecro
senco under tho toot of honest men.
Indicting bodily injury und corrupting
the morals of tho people, thoy uro an
unquuliilod wrong, und (hoy should bo
wiped out of existence.
Moreover the Lincoln sidewalks uro
without form or beauty. Their jagged
ends and disreputable negligee, und
shameful wretchedness uro an offense to
tho aesthetic taste of a retlnod people.
Tholr Injurious effects aro three
fold, causing physical suffering, inciting
to immorality, and outraging good taste.
The sidewalks of this town uro the
worst things in it, and to Mr. Shepherd
and to all other earnest reformers they
offer an inviting Held.
But wo are ufruid thut like the poor
and tho tux-collector who are always
with us, the Lincoln sidewalks are here
to stay. Every year they grow more
disreputable, moro vicious, moo
offensive; but they remain with us, in
creasing their power for evil every year.

Dut what mako the streets of London
most interesting are not tho badges of of
fice and ofllciul uniforms, but tho unof
ficial garb and insignia which tho musses
havo adopted for themselves. Tho milk
man's whito nitron and wooden yoke,
thocommissionnairo'a medals, which tell
of campaigns in Egypt and India, or tho
bootblack's red coat. In America wo
hato uniforms, becuuso thoy havo been
twisted into meaning badges of servi
tude. Our housemaids will not wear
caps, nor will our coachmon shavo their
mustaches. This tends to make every
class of citizen look moro or less ulike.
But in London ono can always tell a 'bus
driver from tho driver of a four whcolor,
whothcr he is on his box or not.
Tho Englishman recognizes that if ho
is in a certain social grado ho is likely to
remain there, und so instead of trying to
dress like some ono clso in a class to
which ho will never reuch he "makes up"
for tho part in life ho is meant to play,
and tho 'bus driver buys a high white
hat, and tho barmaid is content to wear
turned down collar and turned back
cuffs, and tho privato coachman would
as soon think of wearing a falso noso as
a mustache. IIo accepts his position und
is proud of it, and tho butcher's boy sits
up in his cart just as smartly, and
squares his elbows, and straightens his
legs, and balances his whip with as
much prido as nny driver of a uiailcnrt

has its disadvantage. M. Padorowski,
for instance, keeps up his reputation only
at tho cost-of tremendous efforts. To
an interviewer for Ulack and White he
has confided tho fact thut ho practices
at tho piano often for 15 or 10 hours a
day. Once, in New York, ho had to work
up eight entirely distinct programmes in
littlo over as many days, uud then it was
a caso of 17 hours' practice daily. One
must always bo nt it, ho explains, to
keep tho lingers right und tho memory
active. Tho work is certainly tiring,
and M. Paderowski considers that play

has saved his life hy affording him the
necessary relief from ids arduous work.
