Immof au Impulse, but it ImmeillaU'ly met
wllli favor from thu people, of Lincoln, and
that Honor ids eiicotiraKemuiit led to IU dovul
opinent on I(h pivsont llnox. U neuds to
make no explanation for Mng. It Is ouo of
thu incidents of tho evolution of a city and
ouu of tho attributes of Its mutro)olluulsm.
It Is a matter of com He, Just as tiro the other
elements of hoclety.
The history of tho CouilIK.it has been a
record of advancement from Its inception to
tho present moment, and It shall bo tho aim
of tho publisher to coutluuo tho progressive
movement. From u puny sheet, unknown
nnd insignificant, it has grown to n reputa
tion than spans threo thousand miles and in
tho fraternity is regarded as presenting ono
of tho handsomest typographies to bo found
anywhere. All this has not como about of
itself. It has required elTort, constant elTort,
mid absorbed largo sums.
Tho CouniKit Is generally spoken of us it
society imiier, but that Is too narrow n classl-
llcatlou. It would bo moro truly descriptive
of its true purposo to call it it homo paper.
It alms to conserve all that is best and pur
est ill tho social intercourse of tho people. It
alms to present it picture of tho homo life of
Lincoln and to bo helpful to the people in
theirhomes. It is a wiper for tho llreddu
and tlio boudoir. It eschews everything of
doubtful taste or imostlonublo inllueuce, and
its patrons need never fear ought of an ob
jctiouublo diameter. Homo Is it concord of
sweetest memories. Home mon ittToct an iu
dllTereiico to the sentiments cUuglng to homo
nnd these cold hearted hypocrites expresi it
dislike, for papers of the Couiukh'.h class;
but homo and Its osociatious make the most
valuable element of life and these superior
cynics will have it hard time convincing the
world that they are right.
Thanks to tho generous appreciation of tlio
leopli or Lincoln, the Couiiikh has become
ouo of the most successful puiiers of Its class
In the country. Its publisher is deeply sen-

slblo of the kindly Assistance of Its friends,
and promises renewed energy toward greater
successes for tho future. In its present hiiuil-
somo form tho CoimlKU carries to the world
I outside a bright and prejiossestlug picture of
Lincoln, and our people will continue, to lie
kroud of It as n token to strangers of our
Lie social and homo life.

iintes who havo lost a near relative by death

hi you take a sensible, unprejudiced
Itho whole matter, how much better
It of our Ideas on mourning) Hie
Itvlth most of us is that we have be-
i biased by education that we cannot
look at tho matter without prejudice. All
evidences of mourning as displayed in dress
an; meutly forms. True mourning Is it mut
ter'of Sa, curt and does not depend on black
crape. It may lie desirable to give an out
ward token of tho feelings which are suppos
ed to prevail in the heart, but tho thing is
carried to extremes. Most of us know of
many cases in which it is n burlesque, n inns
iuerade, but few of us have the courage to
depart from established custom, even when

Among tho most fioipient out of town vis
itors at the Capitol and the .Lincoln hotels is
Colonel K. U. Webster of Btratton, and the
gentleman is ono of the most interesting
characters In Nebraska. Ho was secretary
to Secretary Soward during the war and
has played an important part in making tho
history of this country. A few evenings ngo
n group of gentlemen in n hotel olllco learned
from the colonel himself that he has been un
der indictment for over forty years for rail
roading n negro to Canada. A sluve escaied
from Kentucky to Ohio un.l itt Clevehtud
shipped as cook on n steamer bound for lluf
falo, which was Colonel Webster's homo.
The owilor of tho slnvo pursued him, captured
him near ilulrulo nnd started south. Sever
al nbolltlonists got him released on a habeas
corpus and rushed him into n carriage in
waltlng.A ferry boat running across the
NlngaraVlver hud been hired to carry them,
and tho party made n dash for llbi'ty with
Webster on tho diver's seat. They reached
tho boat ahead of the pursuing marshals, but
on their return were arrested and indicted,

KnUs l'leld Is a bright woman, but some
times she makes a discovery that hits been
known to mankind for many decades. For
example' she has Just gone Into ecstacles over
the discovery that it woman, to bo most
ngreeablo must listen. "Keep a man wound
up, look as though you were hanging tin his
llps,"Miys Kate, "anil hell think you charm
ing." Tlio same rule will apply to men, and
tho funny thing is that Kate should have
stumbled on it bit of truth as old its civiliza
tion and Imagined It bi and now. Kvery In
dividual Is more or loss of an egotist. The
Iniiniiii hpurt thirsU for nralse. nnd there Is
no more delicate llattery than to start it per
son on his pet bobby and then listen to him
with interested uttentlon. Tho lwt hobby of
most every man is self, and ho will have a
regard for anyone, man or woman, who will
listen to the dearest liuaginitrlos of his ho.-tit
without an air of being bored. A little let
rospectlon will convince anyone that Ml-s
Field's rule applies to lioth boxes unit all
classes. Hhe Is n strong minded, self assertive
woman, ana tno iruiu nas just un

Tho decorative eruo is on us nnd a great

Written for Tiik CoimtKiiJ
Tho mills grind slowly tho live long day
Turning to Hour tho wheat',
Tho sound of the burrs nnd tho whirl of

It's results for mankind to eat;
It grinds at mom, it grinds nt noon
And tho engine with sUvidy clicks

When tho whistle blows at six.
Tho factories largo In cities and towns
Where laliorlug alt tho day,
The girls and boys of tender years
Are wearing their young lives away:
With aching head and weary HiiiIh
Watching tho clock as It ticks,
They welcome the hour when their labor
done
And the whistle blows at six.
The faithful horse us ho trudges along
On the streets with his heavy load,
Strains every nervo as ho plod his way
On tho rough and stony road;
All that he gets for his dully toll
Is the feed that is placed In the rix
And tho hour's as welcome to him as man
When the whistle blows at six.
Bo life with its burdens, Its sorrows and
care.
Its trials Its troubles and strife,
Wo each must endure them wherever we are,
We must battle with lortuuesot life;
When our labor Is o'er and thu Hunt day
comes,
And we're battled with fortunes gay tricks,
When we're called on to go wo cannot refuse
When the whistle blows nt six,
