THE best tiling a real ignoramus can
do is to become n drunkard , says tHe De

observe what a smart man he would be
if he would only let whiskey alone , and
thousands of lies will be told for his
FERDINAND WARD cnuldn't keep the
books of Perry & Co. , the labor contract
ors in Sing Sing , and has been set to
work on a job press. The New York
Tribune suggests that had Perry & Co.
asked Ferdy to run their contracts in
stead of their books he might have
made a power of money for them.
"How dear to my heart is the family
bible , that stood on the table so solemn
and still ; where often I've hid every
thing I thought liable to fall into the
hands of my bad brother Bill. How
ardent I've poized it with eyes that were
gluwinir. and shook its bright pages un
til out the things full ; but now its charm
ing secrets arc going , with the new
Tangled bibles the book stores do sell.
The new fangled bible , the twenty-cent
sible , the new revised bible that says
sheol for hell. " Chippewa Herald.
THE scare attempted by Wall street
when it withdrew two millions from the
xinks in gold , paying that it was to be
shipped abroad , is not likely to make
much of a ripple at Washington. Com
pared to the hundreds of millions in
gold that have come from abroad to
swell our currency since the passage of
the silver remonetization and coinage
net , the little two million of Wall street
cuts a very small figure. We sent about
twelve millions of silver bullion abroad
ast year and nobody thought we were
deeding to death in consequence.
LITTLE Mamie , aged 10 , had just re
turned from a children's part } ' . "Iid
yjpi dance with Tommy Fizzletop ? " ask
ed her mother.No. . I didn't. He ask
ed me a dozen times to dance with him ,
) ut I refused him. I just let him suf-
cr. " "You refused to dance with
lim ! Why did you act so impolitely ? "
"Because I had my reasons. I don't
enow what the little , 6-year-old fellow
means. I wonder if he thinks I am go
ng to compromise myself. If he thinks
'm anxious to encumber myself with
the cares and responsibilities of matri-
uony , he is very much mistaken. "
< : IT is settled that the Burlington will
mild at once from Hastings to Aurora ,
mless some unexpected obstacle shall
utervene. The Grand Island extension
has become a certainty. Several other
extensions are assured. The Union Pa
cific will built some branches. The
Northwestern will come to Lincoln and
extend in other directions. The Mis
souri Pacific will do the same thing.
Engineers arc invading Nebraska from
the east and south. The Rock Island
looks constantly upon the immeuse busi
ness going out of the state and wants a
share of it. There is ample assurance
that the year of our Lord , 1886 will be
one of grace , peace and plenty. "
WITH Beck and Randall marching
unconsciou&l } ' , perhaps , but marching '
out of the democratic camp , one at the '
head of the adherents to protection and j
the other of the silver men , will leave
few in it except generalissimo and the
camp followers. Beck is a braver and
better man than Randall. He has not
the policy of the cool and cautiousl
Pennsylvanian , but he has the power of
courage and honesty. There is no sym
pathy between these two men in either
motives or action. Randall is one of
the greatest politicians of the day. Beck
is a statesman , dwarfed hy early defi
ciencies. But between them they arc
likely to givethe word to the two bonr-
bon horses facing in different directions
that Cleveland is trying to ride at the
same time. Topics.
For several.years Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy lias been prized for its speedy and
jertain cures of.croup. It Is the favorite and i
main reliance with thousands of mothers. It' '
will not only cure croup but if freely used as
ioou as the first indication of the disease ap
pears , that Ls as soon as the child becomes the
least hoarse , it will prevent it , doing away
ivitli all danger and anxiety. There is not
: he least danger in giving'the remedy freely ,
is it coutaias no injurious substance. Sold
