January , from Janus , an Italian deity who is represented as having twoj faces denoting the past and the future is a proper time to look back over the year just closed , note failures and suc cesses , form new resolutions , and enter on the duties of the ensuing year with renewed en ergy and strengthened pur pose. A good time to stop reading your neighbor's paper and subscribe yourself. A good time to discontinue send ing your job work away and bring same to your home pa per. A good time to pay for your paper for the coming year. A good time for any good' deed. YOUXG ladies , for the street , wear tight-fitting jackets of Jersey cloth , trimmed down the front with bands of undyed heaver or Astrakan. The latter always matches the cloth in color.

AST Iowa editor retires because , as he says in his valedictory , "No true Christian can edit a newspaper. " Ax Englishman says kissing is an American habit. True , and we want the tariff so raised as to protect home industry. A LEWISTOX pauper , living at the j ! 1 city almshouserecently oftercd up the ' following prayer : " 0 Lord ! bless 1 the boss of this house ; be with him daily , and with all his'n ; but especially - , ly , 0 Lord ! we ask Thee to make different arrangements in that cook- room. " WATCH and prey. The clergyman in New York did not watch , so the thief prayed on him to the extent of $300 cash , a $250 gold watch and $550 in diamond pins. That clergy man should know where to lay up his treasurers sc that moth nor rust nor thieves can get them. METHODIST ministers as a rule nev er acquire any great amount of wealth in their profession but occasionally one strikes a streak of good luck some other way. Bishop "Warner of Geor gia is a fortunate example. He has just married Mrs. Iliff , widow of the famous Colorado cattle king , who is supposed to be a millionaire. Iy Mr. Spurgeon's inexhaustible fund of illustrative stories is one of a j man who used to say to his wife : "Mary go to church and pray for us both. " But the man dreamed one night , when he and his wife got to the gate of heaven , Peter said : "Mary , go in for both. " He awoke and made up his mind that it was time for him to become a Christian on his own account. AMOXG the many cheeky and cur ious dodges to extort free advertising from the press of the country the cake is taken by an Indiana manufactur ing1 firm. "We have received in common - mon , we suppose , with all the papers or the northwest a five cent piece of music with an artistic advertisement of the business of the concern , with the request to notice and send a. mark ed copy * ? f the paper. As the paper asked for is equal iu cost and super ior in value to the music , the adver tisement requested would not -cost a copper. We imagine the victims of this thin bait will be .few among tbe wide awake papers of Nebraska. The advertising space and the labor of even the humblest and most obscure pamper is worth cash , just the same as a merchant's stock of goods. If every publisher would remember that hundreds - dreds of men make fortunes < ? .ut of the.success of dizzy snaps in the way of advertising , and would never men tion -a man's business except for cash on the nail , at .would ssuve the press many thousand of dollars annually. . There are raany immense concerns .that never pay money-for their adver tising , but manage to make a ten cent chromo or a quarter's worth of snide jewelry bring them an what .they ought to pay two to five dollars .for. We for the sake of betli- Wehope , our ; ? - -generally , that the year 1884 will see-a-wide spread reform in this mat- iter , and that frauds and dead-beats -will alike get xfhe cold .shoulder. Topics. SPEAKING of the evil of bad liter ature , such wishy-washy stuff us may be found in "Peck's Bad Boy" liter a ' ature that will poison the mind and morals of any boy tliat reads it the Inter-Ocean pertinently says : "It is the devil's own method of entering the homes of innocence and honesty and leading the boys and girls to vice and ruin. The father and mother in the.ie days who , when there are floods of good books and magazines for the young of the most beautiful and in- tercsting character , allow these vic- ious and pernicious publications In the home , incur a fearful responsibil ity. The trouble seems to be that too many fathers enjoy the reading them selves , and are forestalled in making a protest to the children. " RAHBOAD RUMBLINGS. McCooic will have both eastern and mountain standard time. THE new time card will probably be completed by January Oth , al though it may be a week later. Mil. T. E. CALVEKT , the present Chief Engineer of the Road , has been appointed General Superintendent , the appointment to take effect the first of the year. IT is said that nearly half of the patents applied ror in recent years have been for car couplers , and still that the bulk of car coupling to-day is done with the primitire link and pin. THE central standard will be adopt ed for all points as fsr west as Mc- Cook , and the mountain standard oa ths western end ofthe division. The standard time is twenty-four minutes faster than the present time and the mountain division thirty minutes slower. IT is said tliat the B. & M. cut-off will be pushed forward to Oxford to connect with the main line in order to save time to their through trains. It seems the war is waxing hot be tween this road and the U. . P. road and in order to put in ieavy blows upon its competitor the Burlingtou route needs tics cut-off finished. . Reporter.

When the hair is coiled ou the crown of the head , an amber prong is the proper orna ment .for it. .SLEEVELESS bodices will not be worn this winter. Small sleeves of -lace wall be worn , and the glove will , in every instance be Jong enough to reach it.
