Rev. 0. E. Connell wenttoChadron
Tuesday to attend tho annual confer

nell has demonstrated while in our

to be likable and agreeable. Ho is the
kind of man who does things. Where
he sees an oportunity to do good to tho
physical man he does it and thus
paves the way to do him spiritual
good We hope that the appointing
power in the M. E. church, whoever
that may be, will see his way clear to
Bending Mr. Connell back to Heming
ford. By his live way of living ho has
made many warm friends and, I trust,
a few enemies. (He would be no good
If he hadn't.) There is a harvest for
him hero in his work and we hope that
he will be the man to reap it.

Our streets wcro not very crowded
Monday on account of tho circus in

Wm. E. Burns, a union boiler
maker from St. Louis who has been
working at Choyenno and Denver until
tho recent Union I'uclOc strike, was
thrown from a box car by Conductor
Scofield Tuesday, nbout 12;30 p. m.
The train was running tweuty miles
an hour nnd Burns received severe in
juries. He had an arm broken, two
ribs broken, his back badly bruised
and his skull fractured. From the np
pearanco of his head wo would conclude
that ho had been hit with a club of
some kind, but it is barely possible
that ho hit his head on a tie. His
story Is that the conductor asked hltn
for a dollar, which being-not forthcom
ing, the conductor went to tear up a
union card he had been showing.
Then tho fracas began. The other
side is thot tho boilermoker began
hostilities und that the conductor, to
keep from being whipped, knocked
him out of the car. Burns was well
cared for, Alonzo Sherwood taking
upon himself the responsibility of call
ing Dr. Eikuer to attend to his wounds.
From all accouuts Scofield did not
have a ballroom appcarauco after the
encounter. Wo nro glad that our citi
zens took an Interebt in tills man.
Thoy took him to the hotel and cared
for him. Though perhaps he was onlv
a tramp, yet ho was all of a man.
All honor to tho boy or girl that
makes up his or her mind to go to
school in spito of dlfllcultics. Those
who will go to school, those who over
come obstacles which are keeping them
away from mind improvement, havo an
infinitely better chance to become use
ful citizens than those who havo school
opportunities around them of which
thoy may take advantage without
effort upon their part. Personally, we
know of many bright boys and girls in
tho vicinity of Hemingford. Thcro
are many'more whom we do not know.
But for theso boys and girls to attain
their highest usefulness as cititizens
and members of society they must get
mind discipline and mind power. Tho
school year Is about to open. It has
already opened In many places. Some
of tho young people living on ranches
havo their minds taken up with the
cattle, horses and stock and feel that
they do not want to study. They can,
if they only will, spend this winter, at
least, at school. It will, if only they
will do It, mean one important crisis In
each life. It will open before the
mind broader and better things. It is
said Opportunity knocks at the door of
every man at least ouce in his life.
May not this school yeor now opening
bo the opportunity of many of the
young people of Box Butte county?
There are good schools scattered over
western Nebraska In all towns and vil
lages. Wo hope that most of the
young people will bo going to school
some where this winter. There is ouly
one thing necessary: Tho will to go.
Give up a dollar a day now for a little
hardship, perhaps a little work In
some fellow's back yard eawlnjr wood
or a little dish washing Itl Someone's
kitchen anything to get through tho
school year. The education Is of much
benefit, but thcro nro other things
me associations, the menus, ttio ac
quaintances madeoutsido of tho school,
social intercourse of the many some
thing not to be found In small country
schools. All this will havo an influ
ence for good on all the after life of

NECESSITY OF 8LUMBER.

"A person absolutely without slep
for nine dnys will die," says a writer
In Alnslco'B. "Sufferers from Insomnlu

has been proved that they do Bleep
without being nwnro of It At a cer
tain point sleep 1b inevitable, no raat
ter what tho bodily condition, the nl
ternutlvo being death. Prisoners havo
slept on tho rack of the Inquisition.
And tho Chlncso found that only tho
greatest Ingenuity and vigilance could
carry out n sentence of death by sleep
lessness. This mode of capital punish
ment was long In favor in China and 1b
Bald to bo bo today, -vhllo as a form of
torturo deprivation of sleep is consid
ered ono of tho most efficacious weap
ons in tho Chinese judicial nrscurtl.
In somo such cases tho prisoner 1b
kept In n cngo too small to stand up or
Ua down In and constantly prodded
with a sharp rod. Death by starvation,
also a Chlncso punitive method, Is a
Blower process and therefore, ono
would think, more calculated to appeal
to tho oriental mind If it wcro not
that death by sleeplessness is thought
bo much moro painful. In the lat
ter enso tho brnln Ib tho first affect

in case of starvation tho brain longest
retains Its normal weight nnd charac
ter. "A corresponding mode of taming
wild elephants Ib said to bo depriving
tho animals of sleep when first caught.
In a few dnys they become compara
tively spiritless and harmless. Tho
brain of tho elephant Is held to be
moro highly developed than that of
any other wild animal, but of course
as compared with a human brain can
bo easily fntlgued by now impressions
and so made very dependent on sloop.
Tho wild elephant in his natlvo Jungle,
however, Is said to Bleep very little n
further point for tho theory of the uni
versal ratio of sleep to Intelligence.
A man taken out of his habitat and
placed In conditions which ho never
could havo imagined If transported
to Mars, say would doubtless need an
extraordinary amount of Bleep at first.
There is tho almost parallel case of a
German boy, Casper Hauscr, who up
to tho ago of eighteen was kept In ono
room whero he had no lntcrcourso with
human beings or sight of any natural
object, not oven the sky. At eighteen
ho was brought to Nuremberg and
abandoned In tho street For the flfst

that It wub very hard to wnko him."

THE HARNESS AND SADDLERY
C. ELLIS CLOUGH
The Sense of Fcellnnr.
Somo of our most lmportnut organs
for Instance, tho heart, the brain and
tho lungs are, strange to say, qulto
lnsonslble to touch, thus showing that
not only nro ncrvos necessary for tho
sensation, but also the special end or
gans. The curious fact was noticed
with tho greatest astonishment by
Harvey, who, while treating a patient
for an abscess that caused a largo
cavity in his side, found that when he
put his fingers into the cavity he could
actually tnko hold of the heart without
tho patient being In tho lenst uwaro of
what ho was dolug. This so interested
Harvey that ho brought King Charles
I. to the mnn's bedside that "ho might
himself behold and touch bo extraor
dinary a thing."
In certain operations a piece Of skin
is removed from tho forehead to tho
nose, and it is Btntcd tlmt the patient,
oddly cuough, feels ns if tho new
nasal .part wcro still In IiIb forehead
nnd tuny hnvo a headache in his nose.
In the Same Situation.
A funny story is told nbout n physl
ciun at Monroo City. A resident pf
tho town set out shade trees for the
doctor. A short time later tho physi
cian was called to attend the mother-in-law
of tho man who hnd set out tho
trees. Tho old lady died, and the phy
sician presented his bill. After paying
It, the citizen thought of the trees and
niado out und presented n bill for
them. "But the trees died," protested
tho doctor. "So did my mother-in-law,"
retorted tho other man. Tho doctor
paid tho bill. Kansas City Journal.

land In section 21, township 24, rango 48 In

Settling Uo "Tip" Quowtlon.
The awkward question of the tip was
solved by a big Now Englaiidcr from
tho state of Maine who was dining in
n London restaurant the other evening.
Having pald-his bill, ho was Informed
by tho waiter that what he had paid
did "not lncludo the waiter."
"Waal," said the stranger, "I ate no
waiter, did 1 ?"
And ns ho looked quite ready to do

ject was dropped. London Chronicle.
A "sitting" was made, proof shown
and proved acceptable to customer, ex

Wo saw place for Improvement and
asked for resitting. A different cos
tume was used resulting In a vast Im
provement and we were satisfied.
Proofs were again submitted and after
asking "her friends," order was made
from poorer negative. We protested,
but to uo avail. (Six hours time and

Seven hours extra aro spent in retouch
