"I WANT A GOOD COUGH SYBTJP"
Is a very frequent request in our Trade and we

A NOTED man says : "Put into my

THE pope of Rome has made Omaha

now she is going to sec if she can't have
her street cars warmed with a stove.
She will also see if her gas cannot be
fixed so she can sec after sun-down.

This is the first account of a rational

M. PASTEUII is daily receiving fresh
accessions of ladies and gentlemen and
children who have been bitten by mad
dogs. The space at the hospital for this
class of patients is getting scarce , and
it will soon be necessary to have a
special hospital for the hydrophobia pa
tients of Pasteur.
THE supreme court of Georgia main
tains the triumph of the prohibitionists
at Atlanta. It is now clearly illegalor
will be as soon as present licenses ex
pire , to sell or give away any liquor in
Atlanta. The effort to enforce the law
will be successful , and we shall see how

which a month ago were not dreamed of.
Mighty wars figure on the not distant
horizon , as the sequence of an } ' sudden
outburst of temper on the part of llus-

showing an unexpected attitude and a
deeper interest in the Eastern imbrog-

COSTLV homes are not needed for
comfort. Indeed , in them is not always
found as much genuine happiness as
there is in a humbletcottage of only two
or three rooms. Kindness and content-
nentdo more to make happy homes than
gold. Some of the palatial homes are
doubtless built to gratify pride , but
.hat object is not always accomplished
jecause , however fine and costly a home
may besomebody is sure te build a finer
and costlier one.
A ORE AT a nd general scare about hy
drophobia would be of great benefit to
the United States , for nowhere else on
this side of Constantinople arc there so
many worthless cur dogs in proportion
to the population. In the cities they are
seldom seen , but no man can walk thro'
a country town at night without being
startled almost out of his life by dogb
which rush yelping from doorways and
seem intent on tearing some one to
pieces. Dog laws do not greatly decrease
the number. Poison seems the antidote
and it cannot be too persistently admin
ANOTHER old political land mark has
depaited , in the death of Gen. Kobert
Toombs of Georgia. The general was
an erratic , fiery southerner , somewhat
prominent in congress in the years pre
ceding the rebellion , but his principal
notoriety in the north was made by his
boast once upon a time that he would
live "to call the roll of his slaves at the
foot of Bunker Hill monument. " lie
entered the confederate service when
the war broke but , but was a failure as
a campaigner and was at an early day
relegated to the rear by Jeff Davis. lie

was always worse than his bite. State
