At a table In the LIndcll this morning
John L. Webster was reading the World-
Herald and his next neighbor the Lincoln
Journal.
"Well , " exclaimed or\e \ , "here the Journal
gives the senate judiciary committee to
Prout , when everybody knows It was al
lotted to Vnn Dusen. A person would think
that pnper would get the news that happens
In Its own bailiwick. "
"Look at that , " rejoined Webster. "This
headline In the World-Herald says the leg
islature voted against expansion. The ordi
nary man who simply glances nt headlines
would think that was so , whefl ns a matter
of fact the article shows that expansion was
not voted down , but the question simply
laid on the table. "
"Why not buy The Dee and read a ro
lltblo paper ? " came the apt advlco of a
man who had heard the conversation.
Senator * Hold n Cnticii * .
The senators held a caucus tonight to dis
cuss the matter of employes , but on nccount
of absentees nothing was done. The secre
tary of the senate has suggested that In case
the force of employes Is adjusted to give
him proper help when needed he will he
nble to save the state from $1,000 to J1.600
In the matter of making up the printing of
the Journal at the end of the session.
The contests that are to come before the
session nro being discussed nnd the mem
bers believe that under the provisions ot
the constitution the secretary of state should
have turned over to the house within two
days after the organization the ballots and
records in the contest cases. This the sec
retary has not done and ho maintains that
the house was not really organized until
after the appointment of the standing com
mittees.
The members1 , on the other hand , hofd that
the time should date from the time when
the house resolution notified the senate and
the- governor that It Hoo4'R.
ready for business. They believe that the
secretary of state can offer no good excuse
for the holding back of the contest records.

"The minister liked coffee. His long Sab
bath day's work was begun with a cup of the
strongest coffee and ended In the same way.
Gradually the physical and mental machinery
became clogged , tongue coated , dull head
aches and a general depressed condition ot
the system , turned MB delightful occupation
Into a dreary treadmill.

THE MINISTER'S WIFE.
One day his attention -was brought to the
fact that the unsuspected coffee was very
likely the cause of bis trouble , and It was
suggested that If ho would use Postum Food
Coffee and induce the good wife to be par
ticular to bolf It long enough to extract the
delicious flavor and the elements which go
to rebuild the broken down nerve centers ,
his trouble would bo gone.
This was two years and a half ago , and
since that time not a pound ot coffee has
been purchased by the minister's family.
Morning , noon and night Poetum makes its
appearance on the table , and Is enjoyed by
all. With the departure of coffee went the
minister's bad feelings , and with the coming
of Postum , came a feeling If exhilaration , a
better appetite and a constantly Increasing
weight.
From the start , the minister's Postum has
been properly made , because of the warn
ing.
ing.At
At one time during the absence of house
wife-the domestic , not being particular about
preparing Postum according to directions ,
made It weak and Insipid , which wo find Is
a very common corapfalnt among those who
do not understand that there is no way to
extract the delicious flavor from Postum ex (
cept by long boiling. Made properly , it Is
clean black and has a crisp , pungent , fas
cinating taste. Occasionally the minister
has been Induced to drink a cup of coffee at
weddings , parties , etc. , but many sleepless
hours of the night are passed In consequence.
This Is a true experience. "

DOINGS Or A DAY IN TUB HOUSE.
Qucntloii of Slftlnir Committee Doc *
Not Come to u Vote.
LINCOLN. Jan. 10. ( Special. ) While the
journal was being read this morning Ben
jamin of Hitchcock ( fusion ) desired a cor
rection. He said he had noticed by the
morning Bee that ho was recorded as voting
with the majority on the roll call yesterdaj
Involving the adoption of the report of the
committee on rules. An examination of the
record , however , verified the newspaper re
port , and the chair decided that It was now
too Into to have correction made.
Taylor of Custcr offered a resolution pro-
vlding that a committee of five , consisting
of three members of the majority and two
of the minority party , be appointed by the
sneaker for the purpose of discovering the
duties of. the manner of their preference of
said duties , general Information relating to
and the necessity for the existence of oil
and deputy oU Inspectors , secretaries of
State Board of Transportation and Board
of Fish Commissioners. Said committee to
report by bill recommendation or otherwise
at an early date.
The discussion on this was short and the
resolution was tabled with slight opposition.
Thompson of Merrlck presented the fol
lowing resolution :
"Be It resolved , That the commlttco on
rules be authorized and directed to cause
to be printed In book form 600 copies of the
rules of the house for the use ot the officers
and members thereof and that one copy
of the came be placed In the hands of each
of such.officers and members as soon as
practicable. "
Thin broueht forth a discussion as to the
advisability of ordering a new lot of books
of ruff a when the members had already been
furnished with the job lot of blue books
sold the state by Eric Johnson.
Some of the members were In favor of
having the rules printed In separate form ,
Jones of Gage saying : "It Is no use to us
to have our rules printed after the session
Is ended. They would bo furnished to the
next houe and In a few days they would do
the same as we have done and make new
rules. If wo are to get any use of our rules
they ought to bo printed In some handy
form. "
The resolution was finally referred to the
printing commlttco.
Burman of Douglas offered a resolution
providing that the Introducer of any bill
should be allowed Uio privilege of explain
ing the merits of his bill to the committee
to which it was referred. Tbo resolution
was adopted.
Eastman ot Custer desired to know what
were the duties of the committee on "other
asylums. " He said be had served on that
committee all through the last session and
falling to find anything to do , bo desired
some light on the subject. Tbe chair prom
ised that the best of Information should be
tendered , at the same time admitting that
the work relating to Insane asylums was
thoroughly covered by another committee.
Forty new bills were Introduced.
After rt-cesB the bills introduced yester
day were given the second reading and re
ferred to committees.
Three o'clock , the tlmo for the special
order of the day having arrived , the
question of the adoption of rule 54
of the report ot the committee on rules
came up. This was the rule that
so much objection yesterday and
which If adopted would have empowered the
committee on rules to act as a sifting com
mittee. The matter did not come to a contest -
test today , as a resolution making rule 54
read , "It shall bo In order for the committee
on engrossed and enrolled bills to report at
any time. " This amendment was adopted
without division.
Evan * of Adams , chairman of the commit
tee on printing , moved that the rules b
amended so that they provide for the print
ing of 500 copies of each bill Instead of 250 ,
as now provided for under the rules. In '
support ot this ho said the difference In cost
under the contract would be only 7 cents
per page.
This aroused a general discussion as to
the number of copies necessary. Reuse of
Hall said that last session there was a
scarcity in the copies of some of the bills
became the printer had not delivered the
whole number contracted for.
Burman of Douglas said the State Printing
board was open to criticism for having con
tracted for the printing before the legisla
ture convened.
Eastman of Custer offered as an amend
ment that the Evans resolution be referred
to the committee on printing , which was
lost , and on roll call the original resolution
providing for the printing ot 500 copies ot
bill * was adopted by a vote of 78 to 17.
The chair announced as the committee to
confer with the senate committee on joint
convention Rouxo of Hall , Flaher of Dawea
and Moran of Platte.
At 3:30 : the house adjourned.
