DON'T ' WAST TO SPEAK PIECES EopUomorlo Seniors Mnlco Trouble at the Btnto University ! BOOMERS BLAME THE BAPTISTS. Some Disappointment nt Ijlncoln Over tlic rallnro to Gut tlio CollcRo End of tlio CoiiRRrsntlonnllst Con- Tcntlon Ilrevlticfi. fntoM TUB jiEr.'H LINCOLN nur.r.Aa.1 Tor the past month there has been consld- crnblo dlscusHlou in university circles mid omong university students over the require ment that each member of the senior class Bliull , on co each term , dollvcr nn oration at chapel exercises. A number of the students , whoBo heads , are cnlltrgcd by the fact that they uro up In their classes , have exhibited tholr lack of good breeding nnd gentlemanly iiiRtlncts supposed to bo possessed by stu dents , by Instigating nnd running n small warfare of their own ogalnst this require ment. Ono of tholr practices has been to nbscnt themselves In a body from chapel ox- crclscs and If an oration would como on for hearing unexpected by them some student Would rise and walk out of the room fol lowed by the other recalcitrant members of Ills chiss. At other times tlioy would adopt the tactics of imprisoning the orator to de feat the requirements. Why this system of foolishness hns been allowed to extend as far us It hat by the faculty Is an unanswered question but it certainly tends to wn d no harmony between students or with the faculty itself. The clement umont ? the students who are trying to run things to their owntasto should M-eure some rapid row boats nnd cultivate their abilities rowing up and clown Salt creek. In a very short time they would bo exports enough lo award to one another diplomas that would make them equal with graduates fiom colleges In-tho i-ust whoso vagaries they nro so anxious to Introduce as an inhar monious element in thostato university. TIIK IIAl'THT COLLHOK. The location of the Haptibt college at York Is something of n disappointment to Lincoln parties who nro wont to criticise the action taken by the Baptist state convention in locating it at that place. It is very evident that these ciltlciHins nro not well founded. The trouble with locating it at Lincoln nnd with the Lincoln proposition was simply that it was an inllutcd real cstato scheme to work off a tract of farm land out in the country four miles , at town lot prices , making the donation appear to bo n largo ono at the in- Jluted valuation when the real valuation was practically no nioro than any farm tract en tirely beyond the reach of tlio city. The Methodist university has been located in this manner thrco miles beyond the city limits. but In its cnso much careful work and effort will In a few years probably extend the city limits to the university grounds and mnko the largo tract that surrounds the campus practically city property. Hut to expect to extend , the city four miles out In another di rection and make a nccond collcgoand college grounds real city property , would bo an un- dertaking-thnt the most enthusiastic boomers would bo Blow in warranting a certain invest ment , and lo the people who view the matter calmly and reasonably the good Judgment of the Uiiptist people In not embarking in the echemo must bo commended. It would have been inlliiitely bettor for the city of Lincoln If the Methodist university had been located two miles imaror the bust- ness center , and If a proposition had been KUbmlttcd to the Hiintists of the state to lo cate a linptist college In Lincoln Instead of n proposition to locate it out in Lancaster county three or four miles , it would have un doubtedly been given the attention it mer ited. There nro no good grounds for ci ilicis- itjg the Haptist people f6r not accepting the proposition from Lincoln. IIIM'AltTINO COXOKI-fUTION.U.lSTS. The Congrt > intlonalst ! convention has prac tically closed Its work and many of the dele gates and clergymen have returned to their homes.

Among the statistics furnished in the report were ihoso showing that in the last year twenty-five now churches have been organized In the state and that seventeen church buildings have been dedicated. The report showed in addition that there were ninety-four church organbntions In the state with H membership of 4S95. The gain during tlio year was 1.2(59 ( , which gain was about equally divided between admissions by con version and admissions by letters. After deducting removals a net gain of M'3 ' was the result of the year's work. The attendance nt the Sunday schools has largely increased. .The following resolution on tlio temperance question was p.issed unanimously : Kcsolved , That the members of tlio general nssociution of Congregational churches of Ne braska holibvo the constitutional statutory prohibition in state and nation of the manu facture , Imiiortatlon and sale of alcoholic liquors is the most vital issue before the American people , mid wo pledge outselves l > y all legitimate means to aid win destroy ing tills terrible enemy of the homo and nation. Yesterday visiting clergymen occupied pulpits in the different churches in the city at all of which services , they were greeted by representative Lincoln audiences. CITY ITEMS. An alarm of fire was turned In yesterday morning , the lire being located in n small house on K and Fifth streets. It was under control by the time the department reached the scene nnd the loss was inconsiderable. The now Methodist church at West Lincoln Which hns been under construction the pres ent summer was dedicated yesterday after noon. A large number of the Methodist pco- plo of the city went out to the bright 'suburb end attended the services , the now rapid transit road making the journey an easy ono. Itov.

WASHINGTON , Oct. 29. [ Special to thi DISK. ] A curious story comes to tbo Smith Bonlan Institution from n man down In Texu through the medium of Colonel Tom Ochy trco. Its accuracy U vouched for by the cot respondent , and many circumstantial detail oi-o given to substantiate the statements mad in the letter. The story runs as follows : i few days ago , as the correspondent was rid Ing through the country near Fororth , h approached a clump of trees. There wu nothing extraordinary about that mid th travelr pursued tlio oven tenor of his \vaj Suddenly his mule gave u start , and , tren Wing violently , showed every symptom of c > trome fear. Looking towards the trees th rider observed rolling towards him with cor eldcrable rapidity what appeared to bo a hooj As It came nearer he discovered it was notl ing more nor less than a snake , which , wit Its tall In IU mouth , had formed Itself hit a hoop and was bowling nlon , merrily over the ground in his dlrcctloi Ho tried to urge his muleon but the anlmu paralyzed with fear , could not be drive ( aster tlmu a walk and the mysterious siiak rapidly overhauled -them. The man , per ceiving It was useless to urge on the poor mule , dismounted'took to his heels , nnd ran , making much better time than tlio four- footed bcast.bad dono. Arrived at u con venient trco , ho dodged behind It and watched. The mule was standing whcro ho had left It close by n largo oak and the snake Was within n few feet of It. Suddenly the snake o ) > ciicd his mouth nnd letting go his tall , made a ferocious blow with that portion of his anatomy at the trembling mulo. Either the aim was not good , or the mule In a last attempt to escajK ) moved a little ; anyway , the tall Just grazed the mule's leg nnd strik ing the trca behind , remained Imbedded thero. The mule gave ono or two convulsive struggles nnd then laid down and died. Tbo culcs ? ! ' * veracious correspondent made the best of his wily tsck to the city nnd there related what had occurred. j\ party was organised to proceed to the spot the next day and authenticate the story. On arriving nt the place the body of the dead mule was found , much swollen. The snake , too. was dlfecoveied fust to the trco and dead , while the oak Itself , which on the preceding day had been n nourishing , strong and lively tree , was withered up. It was found that the snake had a horn about thrco or four Inches long on Its tall , and It was with that that the reptile had struck the mule and fast ened Itself to the trco. Tlio poison emitted through this horn-llko protuberance had killed both the beast and the trco. The name and address of n gentleman said to bo nt present In this city , was given , ho having been the witness of tlio occurrence. From the fact that there was no such address as that given and no such gentleman to bo found , the story is not given much crcdenco at the Smithsonian. Among thoncpiocsof the south nnd also among educated white people , there exists u firm belief In the ability of u certain species of snnUo , popularly known as the "hoop-snnko" to do lust what Colonel Ochiltrcc's correspondent claims that this ono did. did.Throughout Throughout the south nnd southwest there Is n sH'cles | of serpent called the "glass snako" from the fact , as popularly vouched , that , when struck , they break Into several pieces which , If allowed to remain quietly , will unlto together again nnd form a complete and perfect snake once moro. This peculiar belief has only for Its basis the fact that the snake being really u species of lizard without legs or feet , is particularly brittle mid a slight blow only Is required to sever its tail from Its head. The parts do not unite together again as is popularly believed , but n new tail glows in place of the ono stilcKcn oft. Another quito common belief Is that the long , thin snake , taporlng to a fine point at tlio tail , and called from this circumstance n "whip snake , " will pursue a man and actually whip him to death with his tall. The only foundation for this superstition will probably bo found in the stories told by the old plant ers in former days to prevent their slaves fiom wandering from tlio plantation nt night. Clerks Working Too Hard. WASHINGTON , Oct. 29. [ Special to the Br.c. ] It may perhaps sound rather hyper bolical but there actually are employes in the government service who have to bo re strained by their chiefs for fear that they should overwork .themselves. These two ex ceptions to the general rule are ladies who engaged in collecting data for the labor bureau on the condition of working women in tliofhanufacturing districts of Now Eng land. These ladles nro so enthusiastic in their labors that they work day mid night and would do so for seven days in the week if they were not restrained by the head of the bureau. It was necessary to intimate to them that they would bo able to work better If they allowed themselves suftlcicnt rest to keep them in good health , than if they were to woik themselves sick , as it was imminent they would. Their report , together with the statistics collected from other portions of the country , will form the greater pnit of the next year's report of the bureau. The labor bureau has perfoimcd the feat of making thtee annual reports in two and a lalf years. It was not until the latter puit of the fiscal year 1884-85 that it was organ- Vcd and its third annual report will BOOH bo n the bauds of the secretary of the interior , t is conllucd to comprehensive statistics in cgard to the strikes which have occurred in , ho United States during the last six years. An idea of the amount of work entailed in its reparation may bo gathered from the fact : lmt it will contain n table of statistics which done will occupy between flvo and bix uindrcd pages of the report. 9 Hood's Surcnpnrilln cures catarrh by expelling impurity from the blood , which is the caubu of the complaint.

[ Special Telegram lo the BEE. ] Wharton Barker , speaking of his Chinese interests nnd the unfavorable newspaper comments upon the subject said lo-day : "Tlio statement that a concession for the Chinese-American bank asked for in behalf of Vandcrbilt by my representatives in China is , to the best of my knowledge , absolutely false. The scheme hns , naturally enough , aroused the envy of certain English interests. To tlioso who can look behind the scenes nnd who know the route taken by the so-culled agreement with the Vnnder- bilts , It is plain that the name was inserted on its way fronij Shanghai , .via London , to Now York. It is clear to mo that there nro some Americans that would rather see It fall than succeed.

[ Vneiilr,5 a Frc-sh Drummer Courtesy * "Thero Is nn unwritten cede of ethics among commercial tiavellcrs , " said an old vhlto-holrcd "knight of the grip" to n B B eiKH-tcr yesterday , "that Is considered as ilndlng upon each and every ono ns though oath was made to obey It In every particular. Ihls law Is known ns "professional court/- csy. " By It 1 mean that no traveller shall take , or seek to Uiko nny unfair advantage of a brother salesman in the same Hue. Ono of ho greatest acts of discourtesy that ono com mercial man can show to another is to inter rupt him while talking with a customer. It s n rule , never broken by experienced men , o silently await their luin In case the buyer s engaged with ono of their own craft. To n young salesman , making his first trip , this aw is not imperative , but they usually learn 0 respect It before they reach the end of their rip. " "How ! Why , the "boys" turn commercial ) cdagogucs and their teaching consists cn- Irely of object lessons.

' remember once about three years ago in St. Louis I was showing my samples to the dress goods mycr In William Barr's. I was booking n lice sale nnd had my customer just in the iroper frame of mind to place a largo order , vhcn who should como in but n young 'dudo enderroot , ' and walking up to my man pro- bcnlcd his card and commenced talking up he tine line of laces his house was handling. was hofcnough to consign him to u certain ilacowhoio no Ice salesmen will over bo 'ound. Ho was llnafly informed that the ace buyer would not bo in until the follow- ng day , nnd after leaving his card the youth took his departure. Now , nothing is so dis astrous to n salesman , especially when ho is selling n line of specialties , ns nn interrup- ion , and It proved so in this case. My cus- omer had had his mind taken away from the subject I had got him interested in , and in stead of n very largo order I received a very mall ono , and had hard work to get that. " "I went back to my hotel vowing ven geance , mid by Jingo , I pot it that very night. . ' told several of the 'old boys' about it , and wo concocted a scheme that worked to > erfcction. It was this : Ono of the joys Billy Price made it n point to ? ot acquainted with Hlco that was the ludo's name and informed him that .ho lace buyer at Barr's had returned and would bo over to the hotel that night. Ho .old Rico that ho would introduce him , but nddcd that Smith the buyer was n man of rcry convivial habits and if a salesman didn't Invite in his friends and keep wino ilowing Ills name would bo 'Dennis , ' sure. But ho issurcd Kico that if ho did tlio square thing lie might expect a dandy order. Well , Hlco took it nil in and said that his house had told dm tospaiono necessary expense mid that ao would do the thing up brown. "Along about 0 o'clock that night In comes _ regg with an old traveling chum and intio- duccs him nil mound as 'Mr. Smith,1 of Will- 'am Barr's. Ho had no sooner got seated : ban Kico uegan to talk luces and finally asked 'Smith' up to look at his samples. Smith' was npparantly reluctant to go nt Irst but Jinally consented mid wo all eight if us marched up to Kico's room. No sooner nid we got there than ho ordered up a half lozcu quarts of Cliquot and a box of Heinu , Victorias which wo discussed before 'Smith1 ? ot ready to look at the 'oods. Pretty soon 'Smith1 got 'interested , ' and after a short talk placed an order for about .5.7,000 . worth of Vnllcncienncs. 3n the strength of this Hlco ordered up a inlf dozen more quarts , nnd when an hour Inter 'Smith1 selected 200 pieces of Honiton , valued at tl2nooRico was so elated that ho jrdcred a fine supper for eight. Well , wo kept it up until 'Smith' had placed orders for nearly $40,000 mid by that time thowholo crowd was pretty well filled up , nnd I had the proud consciousness of knowing that I was even with the dude. Kico's bill was about ? 100for the right. " "Smith told him to como over to the store In the morning and Mr. Barr would sign the order. Then wo went down mid got to bed mid slept the sleep of the just , but not before 1 had written Rico a letter informing him of the trick nnd the reason of its being played on him. I mot him about a year ago and bo told mo that it was the best lesson ho over received.

General George Harrington is probably ono > f the best known and most popular travel- ug men on the ro&d. Ho Is a fine looking follow with stroug physique ) imd flowing moustache. Although ho Is just a llttlo ever .ho sixties , ho would never bo taken for moro ihnn forty years of ago. Ho travels 'or ' the Stein manufacturing company , of Rochester , N. Y. , manufacturers ) f caskets and cofilns of every prado. This a the firm that made the celebrated and jeautlful casket In which now repose the rc- imlns of General Grunt. General Harring ton Is known all over the country as nn old soldier. At the battle of Gettysburg ho re ceived n wound from n bullet the effects of which ho has never fully recovered from. It was only a little over two months ago that : io had the memorable bullet removed from ; ils bodv. Ho immediately bad it mounted 3ii a gold bnso , and to-dny ho wears the slug that caused him nearly twenty-four years of suffering us a watch charm. A Br.B reporter had the pleasure of meet ing General Harrington , nnd when asked about the business out-look ns regards to wooden overcoats ho said "Tho winter trade is opening well , nnd never before did wo ever have a moro elaborate or better assortment of these goods. Broad cloth goods are perhaps the most fashionable Ibis year , and can bo purchased in nil grades. Some of them are satin lined , and thus make a very ncnt garment. These goods nro nlFO made up with broadcloth covered buttons , while many of the purchasers dcsiro them with plain or carved silver trimmings. But then what's the diffciencol It perhaps shades the cost somewhat , but I hardly think the wcarnr notices it. " "But , laying jest aside , there nro truly some very pretty designs in cofllns and cas kets nt present , and Improvements nro being made every day. As with every other kind of wares these goods are made In ninny grades , and a cofilu can bo purchased from W up to any price that you dcsiro to pay. Our firm is now en gaged in making a pair of caskets for an jld couple in Cambridge , Mass. These cas kets are of ebony , nnd for two years wo have had two of the most expert carvers that wo could procure nt work on them. The old couple visit the shops almost dally and nd- iniro them , make the changes in the work Lhat they desire , nnd when they leave they seem to have the satisfaction of knowing what they are to be buried In , and of the fact that they are two of the most elaborate and costly caskets over mado. I hardly think Lhat another year's work will finish them. but when they nro completed it will not cost that old couple loss that $25,000 to rest in the grave as they desired. Yes , I do hear of some odd things in my line occasionally. The most recent oddity that I have hoard of was the smuggling of 45,000 worth of diamonds from London to Now York in the mouth of a corpse. " I heard another good story a few days ago An eastern undertaker had orders to send the body of n young man who had died there on to a small western city , whcro friends were to bury It. The undertaker scaled the corpse In the casket that had been ordered und sent it west , C. O.D. , When it arrived at the destination the friends refused to pay ; bo bills , and consequently they were not nl- , owcd to remove the remains from the depot. rho eastern undertaker was telegraphed to Tor instructions , and ho immediately replied : 'Send back the casket ; never mind the corpse.1 Acting upon this suggestion , thoex- n-css officials opened up the box , and just ns they were about to dump the corpse on the floor of the baggage rooms , the friends inter fered and paid all bills. The ruse worked well. " _ Travelers' Association.

Ho hurried up to the ofllco as soon as he entered the hotel , nnd without waiting tc register Inquired eagerly : "Any letter for mol" The clerk sorted over a package with the negligent attention that comes of practice , then Hipped one a very small ono on the counter. The traveling man took it with a curious smile that twisted his pleasant-looking face in a mask of expectancy. Ho smiled moro as ho read it. Then , obliv ious of other travelers who jostled him , he laid it tenderly against his lips and actually kissed it. A loud guffaw startled him. "Now. look here old fellow , " said n loud voice , "that won't do , you know. Toe spoony for anything. Confess now , youi wife didn't write that letterl" "No , she didn't , " said the travelling man with an amazed look , ns if ho would like te change the subject. "That letter Is from mj best girl. " The admission was so unexpected that the trio of friends who had caught him said nc moro until after they had eaten a good dhv uer and were seated together in u chum's room. Then they began to badger him. "It's no use , jou'vo got to road it to us , Dick , " said ono of them ; "wo waut to know all about your best girl. " "So you shall , " said Dick , with great cool. ness ; "I will give you the letter and you can read it yourselves. There It is , " and ho laid it open on the table. "I guess not , " said the ono who had beer loudest in demanding it ; "we like to ohnfT t little , but I hojw wo nro gentlemen. Tbt young lady would hardly care to have her let ter read by this crowd , " and ho looked 10 preach fully at his friend.

The pain w hlch accompanies this condition Is of n dull character , felt in the chest , behind the breast bone , or under the shoulder Ijlado. The pnln may como nud go last a few days and then bo absent for se\eial othira. The cough that occnra In tlw llrst stages of bronchial ca tarrh IH dry , comes on at IntenaH hacking In character nnd Is usually most troublesome In the morning on rls-lng , or going to boil nt night , nnd It jnny be in tlio llr.st evidence of the disease extending Into the lungs. Sometimes there nro Hts of coughing Induced by the tough mucus so violent ns to cause vom iting. Later on the mucus that Is rnlsed Is found to contain small pnrticlus of yellow mat ter , which Indicatus that the small tubes In the lungs nro now nllected.

This Is a correct and not overdrawn picture of an acute attack of catarrh , or "Sneezing Ca tarrh" as it Is called. Now , what does this condition Indicate ?
