Bankruptcy In former times meant total . ruination with little or no oppmtunlty for ' j-cdemptlon on the part of the unfortunate debtor.

Tlio Itvlntluns of u Innycr to Ilia I'cl- Inivft. The relation of tlio lawyer to his fellows , says a writer in the American Journal of Politics , Is essentially a public one ; and as buch imposes duties of a public character and of great importance. Indeed , the law yer Is In some sense a public officer. In a complicated social organism Mich as ouis , the relation of the lawyer to his fellow men Is one of peculiar delicacy and responsibility , as well as of signal oppportunlty for good or III. The lawyer , in a constitutional gov ernment especially , Is first of all a student of the political , Intellectual and material , us well as of the judicial development of thO' country. The subject is vast nnd difficult , but he will be qualified to prosecute his pro fession with satisfaction to himself nnd profit to his clients , according to the breadth and depth of the foundation of his culture in the- themes co-ordinato with his special field of thought. The "professions" arc held to oc cupy a higher piano than other respectable and useful occupations because of the more exact discrimination they require , the moro unselfish living they compel. In other fields personal giln Is the chief , If not the only , object. Tlio laborer or tradesman In the pursuit of his business owes no duty to his fellow men. nsldo from the demands of Integrity and truth ; but In the professions each individual assumes a trust relation to his associates , and his private ends become of secondary impoi tance. The preacher In the pulpit , the doctor at the bedside , the lawyer In the court , Is not thinking of his fee. Ho Is a failure If that bo his only thought. Ills relation to his parish , to his patient , to his client , Is too sacred. His obligation Is greater than moni'y represents. Tlio tiust accepted may not bo relinquished at pleasme ; It binds him till the end. The upright or faulty attitude of lawyers has brought to tlio profession extremes of eulogy and ridicule. It Is not stiango that lawycis BIO sometimes held up to public scorn. A man of any public note Is of necessity a t.nget for the mediocre and unsuccessful. There are different reasons for the unfavorable opinions that to some extent prevail. What Is called the "mysteiy of the craft" renders It objectionable to some The lawyer deals with matters which seem dark nnd strange to the uninitiated ; his knowledge of legil forms nnd technicalities Is anchored in the cloudy past by uncanny Krench and Latin phrases His knowledge of the rules of law Is drawn from ponderous and musty volumes , inlo which tlio lay man seldom peers. Ucyond this , the litigious character of tlio business ho conducts leads him to flourish where quar rels most abound , and suggests him as the cause of disagreements Ills duties bring htm Into antagonism with tlio prejudice and selllshness of men. Advocating I lie cause of one , he necessarily opposes the Interests of another , and tlio defeated party will readily ascribe his UN-success to tonio unfairness of Ills foe Kor n still more serious ground of popular distrust , the profession has no one but Itself to blame As humanity U not per fect , this , as other callings , has those for whoso shortcomings the body aggregate Is held responsible The- exceptional power for good or III , wielded by the lawyer , subjects to strong temptation , while this power may bo made a noble Inatiument for good , Its perversion , though pernicious , Is not readily detected nor accmately hcatr-d , ami so > IH- plclon falls on all Tills wholesale condem nation Is utterly unjust Some mlnlstcis be tray their trust ; some tiadesmcn are dlx honest , some lawyers arc Inherently oblique but tills Is not the test by which to judge each calling. Piactlcally , all legislation , good or bad , Is effpctPd by mewbcis of the bar , for from no other class aie men so often called to leave the scenes of private llfo and lend their talents to "promote the general wel fate " In Ills capulty as judge , the lawyei's powei become * , the incut Impressive. What ever feeling , fin1 or fancy may be per mlitel to the advocate , tlio sympathjes nf the jiidsJ must bo intelligent , nnd his frrl'ngs well disguised Ills station demands found discretion , profound legal Information , stilei Impaitlallty Incuri uplllile Integilty , and a sound judicial mind I. ft schools and public teach ihe ethics of laand tlio duties of the lawyer to his follows and thu state , and strive to thin the rank * of professional wrong-doers who t-ock to gain n llvdlhood by catering to thu follies , foibles nnil ani mosities of HUM ) , that Mich may bo Induced to divert their effoits to other fields of labor , thcro they may scrvn tnelr generation In some capacity us respectable as law , but ( .ailing for another type of heart and talents , hoping thus to irullzo the Ideal of the "Just Law yer , " who , "while ho lives Is ( lie delight of the court ; the ornament of the bai , a pattern of Innocence ; the glory of the pro fession , a tenor to deceit , the oiuclo of his country.

ADDRESSED TRAVELING MEN. Dr. Mu.kuj , Mr Ilcr mill Others Talk to tlin ( 'oinnirrclal Pllgrlnm. The traveling men of Omaha and vicinity held n mass meeting at the Commercial club last evening for the purpose of fostering unity in the Interests of the Gate City. C. O. Lobcck , chairman of the bureau of commercial travelers , presided. Rev. T. J. Mackay , who was once n trav eling man , was the first speaker. He urged unity and harmony among the pilgrims of commerce and Impressed upon them the ne cessity of truth and good deportment when they were at home and abroad. They were the apostles of a new civilization. Unity was essential to the interests of Omaha divisions were fatal in everything , as was evident from quarrels over religious creeds. Traveling men were good cltl/ens. Ho urged them to show visitors to Omaha the best part of the city and not allow a morbid nnd senseless Idea to guide them to the worst side of Oinalui. The speaker deplored the fad of "slumming" nml said It was no credit to those wiio paitlcipated. MR. WL'LLER'S ADDRESS. Charles If. Weller , chairman of the execu tive committee of the Commercial club , de livered a splendid address , which was in sub stance as follows : "Your position Is an Important one. You stand between the wholesaler and his cus tomer. You are the telephone that con nects the two. Your occasional visits , if you are what you should be , arc looked for ward to with pleasure by your customers You arc the link that connects the country customer with the commercial world , with which ho rarely comes In contact personally. You are independent , you arc left to your own devices , you aio out from under the watchful eye of your em ployer , nnd the best interests of those you represent are largely In your hands. How Important it is then , that you should be men of piilfctple , that os representatives of dif ferent lines or of competitive lines you should Jiot allowDJHtlo petty jealousies to arise that would influence you In any way to take advantage of your brother salesman. Be honpst with one another , strive to main tain a friendly and fraternal feeling. Work for the interests of your profession , to build It up. Remember that to your hands has been committed the best interests of tlio men who employ you , and , to a certain ex tent , their future business success. There are now on the road , representing different lines of business In the United States , 250,000 traveling men , and tills number is constantly Increasing. These men have been selected from among the brightest and best Informed young men of the countiy , they nro gencially men of good address , men who are well up In the business they represent , well posted on tlio general topics of the day , capable of making their Influence felt wherever they go. go."I "I am Interested In your welfare and suc cess. I want to see the commercial traveler of today occupy the position that ho should occupy In the commercial world. I want to see him thoroughly posted In all the affairs governing nnd controlling commercial trans actions of the present time. I hope , there fore , that these meetings may be moro frequent , and as commercial travelers be come. better acquainted they will foster a fraternal feeling and kind regard for eacli other , and whllo legitimate competition will have a tendency to make them active and alert , I hope that no traveler within the sound of my voice tonight will ever resort to any undignified or ungentlemunly means to secure orders. Make friends of your customers. Glvo them to understand that you arc not only vvoiklng for the Interest of your employer , but for theirs , nnd If you can favor them in any legitimate way. do BO , but do not endeavor to build up a personal friendship for yourself at the expense of the house you represent or at the expense of some worthy competitor. You should bean an educator of the trade by being ynuisclf educated , and , as I said before , you should bo active , energetic , honoiablo and untiring in your eflorU to further the Interests of your employe ! .

Hall ft Co. , which II. R. Logic and ho have bought out. Mr. Login , his old friend , and once n merchant of this city , has made final ar rangements by which ho and Mr. Osgood have acquired the entire stock now of a concern ihnt docs a business approximating $1,000,060 n year. Mr. Logic will bo re membered by the business men of Omaha as a pusher , and one of the brightest , most active rustlers In the business. Mr. Osgood has done good work for the Morse Dry Goods Company , nnd has made many friends for the coiriptny , nil of whom will * bo ghd to hear of his latest strike , which from all Indications bids fair to make him one of the coming merchants of the east. W II , Wrlsley , who has been Mr. Osgood's right-hand man for the past year , will suc ceed to tiie general management of the store nnd will provo himself perfectly competent to fill the place. Ho Is a thorough dry goods man and formerly manager for Daniels & fisher , the great Denver merchants , and ono who has n natural tact for making friends.

NO BITTERNESS NOW. Ilio CYntury WinIliiok" I'opnlnr with Illtin anil Cray Alike * . The blttor years hive passed nwny ; The scars have slowly healed , New wood hns giown upon the tree , fresh sod Upon the Held , And laws of liute the soldiers inndo The soldleiH linve1 repealed. Finnic II. Sweet In lilue nnd Grny. Krcsh evidence that whatever bitterness may have remained after the ending of tin civil war Is Indeed passing away Is founi In the Impartial spirit with which old sol dlcrs read and discuss topics relating to the civil war. The former opponent upon tlio field o battle , the dodging enemy out on the skirmish lines , who was hunted as eagerly and "potted" as coolly as AllanQiurtcrmalt picked off n stalking tiger In the jungle the charging fnasscs of cavalrymen , In whic-1 one cruelly tore great holes with ills grape shot arc no longer objects of fierce denunci ation and profuno reflection. Upon the contrary n feeling of respecl akin to pride for the lighting quality and exploits of the 'soldiers upon both sides has conquered the old feeling of enmity. And thus It happens that the one popular book In America , next to the bible , Is the "Century War Book" with Its wonderful collection of narrative data and Illustration Wlillo it Is true th.it "old soldiers" are In the minority In respect of numbers , there is yet scarcely a member of any family of which tlio present generation are born Americans who has not a personal Interest In the war history through relationship to some of those who fought. And this is equally true of people who come to this country since the close of the war. They propose to become worthy the name of American cltbcns , nnd appreciate the necessity of education for themselves and children in regard to the history of their adopted country. A drawback wlilch has heretofore seri ously Interfered with the widest distribution of the Century Compiny's great work has been the high price necessarily placed upon the edition In its original shape. This was necessitated by the comprehensive scope upon which It was planned and executed at on e\p ° nso of over $230,000. But the obstacle Is happily no longer In existence. Thu Bee has made arrangements with the Century company for the issuance of a new popular edition , containing all of tlin features which made the first issue so valuable to the soldier and student alike. The Century 'War Book , Is'fiow Issued by The Dee to Its readers , consists of twenty parts , ono pait being put forth each week. The original edition sold for a prlco ranging fiom $22 to ? 28 , according to binding The terms upon which Tlio I > eo t edition which Is practically identical with the former Issue , may be- obtained , arc made so advantageous to Its readers that there Is hardly a person In any station of llfo who could not easily procure It. In another col umn will be seen the details of the distri bution. o Pianos to rent. A. Ilospe , 1513 Douglas. Attachment of a Stork of Goods at Sioux J'alls Causes Trouble. SIOUX PALLS , S.

" the porter asked the New York Sun man In a Wagner car rolling out of Buffalo "feet to the engine , " said tno passenger. "If you travel much you'll have your head put next to the engine , " said the colored man "No , " said the passenger , "I'm afraid there might be a collision and then I'd be thrown with all my weight against my head " Iho porter chuckled. "I beg pardon , boss , " mid ho , "but I notice dat all do railroad men has their heads put toward dc engine nnd all the com mercial travelers also. The biggest argu ments Is in favcr of doing that way In the first place , thcto ain't many head-end collisions There's more danger of a rear-end collision The reason is that every pas senger train has Its own right of way and runs regularly every night , and Is looked out for by all the trains that's running ahead of it Therefore the most dangci Is from some thing b ° hlnd which don't know when wo have stopped or broke something , and which luns into us unexpectedly There ain't nny- ono looking out for any kind of collisions , 'cause when they come It matters mighty little which end you're putting forward your head or your feet but If you Insist on looking out for 'em from behind I'm a-tcll- Ing you " "Any inoic arguments' " "Got plenty more arguments , boss. You don't want U ) sleep with your feet toward the engine , because if you do the draught through the car blows light agin youi head , nnd when It gets cold at night your head and chest are exposed. Put your heart to ward the engine and you feel cold without glttlng In no draught. It's just the same way In summer. If you sleep with your feet toward the engine you can't have your windows open , with the screen In 'em , with out getting the wind and line dust right In your face , whereas If you sleep with your head to the engine you get the cool nlr and no draught and dust. " "Is thfit all you know ? " "No , boss ; I hain't told you the biggest argument yet why you should have your head made up toward the locomotive. Tlio most serious thing of all Is the circulation of the blood in your body. You have been having your feet made up toward the engine , eh' Well , I reckon you don t never sleep very well In the cars , do you ? Your night's res' Is usually broken , ain't If Well , sir , let me make up your head to the engine , an' you'll sleep like you was a baby. Dat's because the motion of the tialn Is so stiong and steady that It sends all your blood to ward the end that's furthest from the en gine. Put your feet to tlio engine and all your blood rushes straight to your head and gives you a restless night. Put your head to the engine nnd the blood goes away fiom your head , leaving it cool and easy , so you can res' like a child. " "Put my head toward the engine nnd stop talking , will you ?
