' The question which most agitates the female mind nowadays is how to comply with the dressmaker's decree against hips. The sultan expresses regret that his Turkish troops should have been 30 cruel. He could hardly express delight, though he may feel it. Perhaps Senator earmark's plan of depriving the negroes of citizenship is to facilitate John Temple Grave's is heme of deporting them. A spanking machine is in use at the Minnesota state training school. Most mothers, however, prefer the old- fashioned, hand-made article. Tom Johnson is out after Hanna'a scalp. If Tom wants to secure a trophy of his skill at the chase he should go after somebody with more hair. Senator f'annack says he will pro jose to repeal s fifteenth amendment "jitst to Btiitt the discuHsion," The senator is quite likely to be gratified In deciding on an early meeting of congress (he president probably had in mind the len.'ih of time it will take Senator Morgan to deliver his inevitable speech on the canal questiun. "His heart Is In the right place" Is 4111 expression not (infrequently heard and well understood. But Colorado produces a man whope heart is not In the right place and of whom this fan he said without any reflection upon his character or disposition. The doctors are very much puzzled over the fact that his heart has dropped to the lower rigid side of his body. The man who has undergone this unique experience hays he doe not know why hi heart should have changed sides, but, so' far js he knows, he hasn't. CALAMITY CAMPAIGN IN OHIO. In his campaign for the seuale Mark Jiiinna Is apposed by a democratic reformer named Clarke, who enjoys the distinction of being the first and only gold-bug democrat to receive the support of Colonel William Jennings itryan. Mr. Clarke has followed democratic precedent and raised the flag of calamily. around which he appeals to republicans to rally. He gives as his chief reHsoii why ropnldicuns should vote the democriitic ticket the startling prediction thai the whole country is on the verue of n liunneia! collnpse. This Is the same reason Mr. Bryan gave his hearers for deserting the republican parly, and It is based upon the theory that when a candidate bus nothing that will appeal to the reason of a voter, the proper thing to do Is to play upon his f"urs. So the blunder made by Mr. Rryan js to he repealed, and the calamity campaign is on in Ohio. It seems that the more experience the democrat u-leaders hae. (he less they understand the people. If there is ever a time when the people of this country do not want the democrats in power, it is when a financial collapse is due. Past experience has shown that democratic victory and financial distress m) hand In hand, and if Mr. Clarke succeeds In convincing any one that a panic is coining, lie will at the same time furnish the voter with additional roasous for not voting for him. Mr. Clarke could have selected no better means of pleasing Mr. Hauna than by adopting the calamity issue. v"' RIGHTS OK AN EMPLOYER. "Playing the races and all other forms of gambling, immoral conduct and the excessive use of cigarettes jirefltly impair one's usefulness. The Vest business houses in the city do not desire the services of those who practice a ny of t hese t h ings. Not ice is liereby given that any employe so utilising himself is subject to dismissal." Six of the largest of the many large firms la Chicago have recently adopted the context of the above rules as the standard by whhh their thousands of employes are to govern their mode of living. The young meu who play the races, smoke ciga.etu-s to ex ess and indulge in any of the other forms of vice which are liable to in- apaciate them from the Intelligent use of their faculties, will find out that they will have no place on the pay rolls of these firms. This resolve in the part of these business corporations raises the question as to whether or not such coropratlons have the right to control the goings and comings of their employes out of business hours The average young man. although he may not be in the least inclined to follow the horses, dally with the little .dims of red. white and blue, or look upon the frothing mug too often, does not take kindly to any sort of espoin-aee over his actions outside of his office hours. He contends and stronely Asserts that if he does his work faithfully gives all the time demanded and applies the entirety of his energy and Intelligence to the special details al lotted to him. that once his desk 1 closed and his office door sfcuts behind liim. his relations with his mployer cease. That outside of his capacity as in employe his employer has nouiebt to dictate his behavior or control his mode of living. A And that is just where the averVee young man makes his great mistake. 1h$ office attache who is familiar with all of the allurements which tnveigle a man from the paths of sobriety and lecency has not much fear, for he is either always on the lookout for the discovery of his weaknesses, or he is clever enough to cover up his tracks ami keep hidden for a time at least-his irregularities.. It is the average young fellow, of fair bringing up. of respectable family and good habits who needs the care and attention of those for wiiom he works. It has always been a conjec ture on the part of nopl who think about it at all. as to where, and how, rhe army of young men workers spend 1 heir spare time ami evenings, Em plovers no longer entrust tha- welfare of their clerks out of their minds and think that their duties cease when they pay them their, salary for value received. They are now wanting to know for their own interests, cer tainly what liecomea of the clerk whose salary is in two figures when he is at leisure, because the two-figure man is generally the young, inexperi em-ed one, and to save him from him self is the aim of his firm, it is to be hoped. The employer has Just as much right o protect his interests outside of btisi ness hours as a father has to demand the whereabouts of a son who is under age. If a firm knows that a clerk spends his spare hotirs In pursuits that are almost sure to end in his ultimate unfitness for a position of trust, it is up to that superior officer to save that fellow's credit and thereby make him of value to themselves. While It looks as if such a proposition must necessar ily be a selfish one. It cannot be called entirely one-shied. The firm which protects itself by in sisting upon fairly correct behavior from its employes is doing to these same employes an untold good by showing them what It means to keep Hway from bail company and not spend their salaries In riotous living. These firms Imve the right of it, all right RESPONSIBILITY IN BALKANS. Sioux City Journal: It is to be fear ed the Maiedonians and Bulgarians in their present plight are receiving considerable more sympathy than the actual situation in the Balkans . would seem to warrant. Nobody over here can pretend to know with accuracy what is going on In the "cockpit of Europe." but there is enough on the record to indicate that the sultan of Turkey Is not wholly to blame for thfl existing unpleasantness. It would not be surprising to hear that he is no) at all to blame for (he massacres and out rages which are being so lavishly reported by correspondents who are making the most of their opportuni ties. There is obviously so much flc- ion mixed In with whatever fact may be available that the whole fabric i hrown under suspicion. It Is a matter of frequent criticism over here that the civilized nations of Europe should stand Idly by, and permit the Turk to wreak his will upon he Christian population of Macedonia. Surprise is expressed that Russia and Austria should serve notice on Bul garia that she will have to fight her own battles if she insists on going to war with Turkey. In this connection he fact, of course. Is that Europe has indorsed the stains quo iu the Balkan peninsula, and the Macedonians and Bulgarians in trying to promote war with Turkey are defying Europe at well asthe sultan. It will be recalled that the so-called revolution in Macedonia was fomented ry a crowd of adventurers known as the Macedonian committee. This Is the same outfit under whose auspices an American missionary was held in captivity for several months and finally released only upon payment of a heavy ransom, Neither the Macedonian committee nor the Macedonian peon I e could gel a very strong letter of recommendation form their European acquaintances.. SOME BLESSINGS OF GFIEF. Don't grieve but since you must Brieve, learn that there Is good even In grieving. Alas for hi in who Is too blind to see that there is something more than grief in grieving! Perfect happiness is the great desire, yet we could never realize happiness but for Its contrasts with griefs. Just is we never could realize sunshine but t'or shaiTnws and periods of darkness. It is In the spring, when the gloomy winter has just gone, and in the au-'utiin. when the winter Is near again, that we enjoy sunshine most. In midsummer, when the sunshine is really most perfect, we enjoy It the least because of the lack of contrast. The human mind does not comprehend perfection except through imperfections. We could not know happiness but for griefs. Grief has value all its own. He who has been altogether ilad is but- half-made: his poor life '.acks completeness. He Is incapable if realizing real gladness. Arielbert von Chamlsso's "Peter Schlenilhl" Is a German classic. It Is a little story of a man who sold to the devil his shadow. That, he thought he lOnld easily spare nothing else was so uMeWy useless. But poor Peter soon found out that with his shadow gone a Inind of sympathy between himself and his fellow men was gone also. Men feared hint and women fled with him. The sunshine that fell where his shadow ought to have been, divided him from all mankind. He learned that in a man's shadow Is that outward expression of himself which shows thit he has been touched, like others, by the light of heaven. The little story Is hut a poet's whim. But in it the true philosopher may find a deep well of meaning. Many a man has sold to the devil his griefs and thought it a good bargain, only to find himself in the same isolation from human sympathy as did the man without a shadow. The man who can drown his cares in drink may think he has a good bargain with the devil, but he is burning his bridges behind him on the road to death. The headache and the heartache that he denies himself are the only holds that nature and spirit could have upon him for his rescue. Pal nin the body is the stricken nerve's a"eal to the brain and the heart for help. Grief Is the same sort of natural appeal to one's spiritual forces in time of disress. Heeded, these natural appeals lead to higher health and hiaher happiness. Disregarded, they are but signals of decay. He who has no griefs can soon sum up his joys. He who feels no want ought quickly to set about an inventory of his needs. He would find a lot of them. The fact that he has not felt them proves his inanity and his lack. His shadow is not working. Where there are no griefs there is no inspiration and little activity. There may be a semblam-e of activity, but Hrtle real accomplishment. "You don't know how this privation rouses me." said a great writer. "What privation do you mean?" - "I mean this going wfth only one meal a day because I have no money to biiy more." There, maybe, lies the secret of' the fact that the men who have produced most of the world's great literature trained themselves in garrets. Omaha News. SEALED" BIDS WANTED.
