" 'Tis true 'tis pity ; and pity 'tis 'tis true , " but unless the Journal Topics Man brightens up , ho have to forfeit his laurels as the great est self-encomiast in the state , to the writer of the Gazette-Journal slop- over. Our contemporaries in the Valley ought , as a matter of self- preservation , to withhold their "meed of praise" until the Gr.-J. regains its wonted composure. "Modesty is to merit as shades to figures in a picture ; giving it strength and beauty. " "No , " said a fond mother , speaking proudly of her 25-year-old daughter , "Mary isn't old enough to marry yet. She cries whenever anyone scolds her , and until she becomes hardened enough to talk back vigorously , she isn't fit for a wife. ' ' SAKAII BERNHARDT has just cowhided - hided Mile. Marie Columbie , who had written a biography of the great ac tress which did not please her. Sarah is to some extent right. A biography such as hers ought to be post mortem. CIVILIZATION" is advancing with powerful strides. Of more value to the human race than the telephone is the recent sentencing to hang of a New York policeman for clubbing an inoffensive man to death. FRANKLIN says that "he that takes' ' a wife takes care. " - "Which probably J . explains in a measure why there are' , so many "baches. " They are too | distressingly eareful already. 'I WAS only footing one of your late bills , " remarked a fond father to ) j ! his daughter , after kicking her sweet William out of the front yard. EAILROAD RUMBLINGS. ANOTHER terrible accident occur red at Nebraska City , Saturday after noon , resulting in the death of anoth er 01 our citizens , Harvey S. Bundy. The Nebraska City Press contains the proceedings of the inquest held on his body , from which we copy the j j testimony of the conductor , C. "W. j Patterson , who said : "The engineer had run the engine out passed the switch and was backing in to couple J on to the freight going west. "Harve1 as he was generally calledhad thrown the switch and given the signal to "back up. " "When I was standing on the depot platform I saw him "jump upon the brake beam of the tender to the engine and grab at the chain that holds the coupling pin. He missed his hold and fell. T signalled S-J the engineer to stop his engine , which he did , but too late to save "Harve. " The tender passed entirely over his .body , and when I reached him he WAS .dead. " Gazette-Journal. WORK in the B. & M. shops at Plattsmouth has increased to such an extent that the nine hour system has hid to be abandoned , in all depart ments except the carpenter and paint departments. The shops Jiave all been lighted by electric light and ten full hours will be put in each day. . 'TnE new invoice of stationery re ceived at the B. & M. offices here , read iu the headings B. & M. R.

Senator Sabin , with his income of § 100,000 a year , runs to boots. He has twenty-eight pairs. Whenever Sabia undertakes anything it is not a bootless job. IN a prayer meeting at Westfield , Mass. , a brother arose and said : "I want to hear sung that beautiful hymn , 'Split Doors. ' " A ripple of laughter was suppressed by a sister who struck up "Gates Ajar. " "That's it ! that's itJ the brother shouted , as he sat down to enjoy the melody. THE moon was shining brightly. He slid over the fence and sneaked up to her window he sangin a plain tive voice , to the accompaniament of the guitar : "The last rose of summer is fading .away , " and the old man stuck his head out of the window and said : "Never mind young man , just throw your coat over it and I'll take it in in the morning. " OSCAR WILDE , the English dude , gets off a good thing once in a while. In a recent lecture on America , he said : "American romance is different from ours. It is not the romance of Shakespeare it 3s the romance of commerce. * * * The men in America have very little .childhood , They leave school at 14 , have two or three successful bankruptcies by the time they are 20 , and at 21 are millionaires. " WE see from our exchanges that a self-acting sofa , just large enough for two has been invented and is consid ered as .a great relief to the old folks. When wound -up it will begin to ring a warning -bell just before 10 o'clock. At 10:01 it splits apart and one half carries the pretty daughter of the house up stairs to bed , while the other half kicks the young man out doors and lets the bull-dog loose. The price is * laway up yonden , ' ' > but people must have them. ONE of Ella Wheekr's "Poems of Passion" begins : "She touches my cheek , and I quiver I tremble wit3i exquisite pain ; she sighs like an overcharged river , my blood rushes on through my veins ; she smiles and in. jaad-.tiger fashion , as a she tiger fondles her own , I olasp her with fierceness and jassion , and kiss her with shudder and groan. " Ella may call this.a poem of passion , but here we call it drunk and disorderly. Chicago News. .GOULD says the reason be doesn't give ajparty that-.will outshine old Vanderbilt's ' 'snorter , " as .that "they-don'.t.keep a giul now , and .that with the washing and mending ihe childrens ! clothes Mrs. Gould .has about all she can do , and there's one thhig certain while thenvorld thinks him callous and cold-hearted , he will .not impose on his wife. " This is & base subtetinge. We.know Mrs. Rus sell Sage and Mrs. Cyrus Field would be only glad to .run in and help Mrs. Gould out with the baking and dust ing. It's just'like Gould's-confounfi- ' ed meanness to Bet up an excuse like that. Topics.
