During the winter months the
churches are warmed for the morning

philanthropy. That tho people who
most need entertainment will avail them

Professor Davis' work in institutes re
ceives favorable comment wherever he
goes; while Chancellor Andrews' lec
tures always give profit and pleasure.
Professor Rowe is one of the joint au
thors of the system of writing to be used
in the schools, and is now connected
with the department of education in
the university of Chicago. He will un
doubted render the teachers much
assistance in planning for a forward
movement in the teaching of writing.
Miss Webster is the newly elected
supervisor of drawing and writing. She
is expected to meet the teachers during
the three last days of the institute for
consultation and planning the work of
her department for the coming year.
An interesting and profitable session
is anticipated. All teachers in the city
schools are required to attend unless ex
cused, as the discussions and lectures
Free Recitals.
The Bubject of harmon is one which
is worthy of our most serious considera
tion, not alone in its relation to the sci
ence of music, but to every human life.
It is generally conceded that harmony
of surroundings, both animate and in
animate, is absolutely essential to the
best development of every human being;
and the greater the talent, the natural
ability, the more necessary this har
mony becomes. It is an unconscious
need, often a need which brings irrita
tion and diminution of mental powers
the possession of this mysterious some
thing as unconsciously tending to the
fullest development of these powers.
And, generally speaking, in exact pro
portion to a person's mental ability is
his sensitiveness to outward impres
sions and to harmony between himself
and his surroundings.
Perhaps this innate longing in the
hearts of men for the pure, the true and
the beautiful may, in a measure account
for the large attendance at the band
concerts during the summer, and at
every musical performance where ad
mission is free.
In Omaha free organ recitals have
been given by Mr. Butler at Trinity
Cathedral on Sunday afternoons for
several years. A program composed
largely of classical organ music, with
vocal or violin solo, tills the church
regularly in hot weather and in cold, in
sunshine and in storm. The popularity
of these recitals is evidence both of the
ability of the performers and of the de
sire of the people to hear something bet
ter than the rag-time melodies which
greet their pars on week days.
With so many accomplished musicians
in Lincoln, both vocalists and instru
mentalists, why could not a similar
series of free recitals be given in this
city on Sunday afternoons? The effect
of listening to good music cannot be
other than refining and ennobling. The
majority of the young people will not
stay at home on Sunday afternoon, and
if nothing more attractive is ottered,
they will spend the hours in aimless
wandering around the streets.or in more
harmful amusements. An hour spent in
Driverless Horses.
In the number of driverless horses
daily rushing about the streets, Lincoln
would win the prize in any contest.
Occasionally a man is seated in tho ve
hicle, but more often a small boy is
holding the reins; and a simple holding
of tho narrow strips of leather by no
means constitutes driving. Delivery
wagons are whirled around corners with
no regard for their own or tho pedes
trian's safety, while drays and carriages
of all descriptions thunder over crossings
and car tracks with a recklessness cal
culated to increase the popularity of
accident insurance at least a hundred
per cent a day. Teams are left standing
unhitched by their drivers with a sub
lime indifference to consequences should
anything come along of a startling na
ture to horseflesh, and not only in tho
residence portion of the city, but in
front of down-town business blocks is
thi often true.
Section 1033 of the Revised Ordinan
ces of the city of Lincoln plainly states:
"No person, upon turning the corner of
any street, or crossing the intersection
of any street in tho city of Lincoln, shall
ride or drive any horse or horses or
other animal with greater speed than at
the rate of four miles an hour, under
penalty of a tine of not more than ten
dollars for each offense."
Section 1002 states as definitely: "No
person shall Itave any horse, horses, or
other animal, attached to any carriage,
wagon, cart, sleigh, sled, or other ve
hicle, in auy parts of the streets of this
city, without securely fastening uch
horse, horses or other animal, under
penalty of a fine of not more than ten
A few complaints of the violation of
these ordinances will perhaps be re
quired by way of illustration of their
practical meaning.
