With this issue we enter on
a new year. 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

A LEWISTOX pauper , living at the j !
city almshouserecently oftercd up the '

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.
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. "
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
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. .
