An exchange, apologizing to the
women, says: "Ladies should bear
in mind that the word 'man,' used
in a broad sense, means 'woman,'
too." It is barely possible that
ladies will not care to have the
sex mixed in that way. Men and
women differ in many things, and
it something to be thankful for that
it is so. It is as easy to say men
and women when women,, are in

be useifricross the Atlantic connect

it possible to fire a train through
one of these tubes at the rate of
1,000 miles per hour, using an, air
current as the motive power. The
speed is to be so great that, owing
to the circular motion of the earth,
the pressure will be upward instead
of downward. The interior of the
tubes and exterior of the cars is to
be of polished steel.

Some friends of Mrs. Winfield
Scott Hancock, who now live in
Washington, are urging her ap
pointment as postmastress of that
city. The movement was begun
entirely without the knowledge of
Mrs. Hancock, and it is probable

General Hancock died poor, but a

widow soon after his death, and she

No man can manage politics and

sacrifice the truth, or as journalist
care nothing tor the truth. There
is only one thing the journalist
should strive after, and that is to
tell the truth in advance of any one
else." Here is food for reflection
for the average Nebraska journalist.

the past seven months three exports
of these commodities amounted to
about 100,000,000, as compared
with $81,000,000 in the correspond

gratifying for Americans, because
of the fact that it is coupled with a
