At the 4th of July celebration at Chad
ron there was about 1,200 Indians under
Red Cloud present. The Democrat of
that city prints the speech made by that
chief there, and from the first to the last
word we find this production one con
tinual whine about how the government
had treated his people. It is one con
tinual complaint about something they
have been promised and have not re
ceived. This speech will probably be
reproduced for eastern readers and they
will call the rot eloquence and the effu
sions of patriotism. Ex.

told of how some cheeky rascal came to

at work in a field near by, entered the
house, exchanged his old rags for a fine
black suit that was in the house. He
was followed by a hired man, but proved
himself to be the best runner and the
chase was given up. Ogallala ITcics.
Callaway was so very quiet and orderly
on the 4th that the constable who was on
the ground for the purpose of keeping
order, became so disgusted with the
monotony of the thing that lie filled up
with bad 'whiskey and walked into the
crowd and arrested the first man he could
lay his hands on. The arrested party
objected to going -to the jug merely to
amuse the constaole and protested so
loudly against it that a volunteer citizen's
committee proceeded to sit down on the
oyer zealous official so hard, that he was
glad to find a quiet place where he could
sleep off the effects of his inspiration.

In a Polish settlement near Columbus,
the Priest had come to solemnize a mar
riage ceremony. Within an hour after
he had left, and while the guest were
making merry and drinking luck to the
happy pair, the bride gave birth to a
bouncing boy. The groom with his cup
of bliss running over, proposed that the
priest bo recalled and the child be
christened then and there. 'Twas done,
and the priest retired but ere another had
passed the heart of the little stranger
ceased to beat. The groom again pro
posed the priest be called and fhe burial
proceeded with. Again the good priest
made his appearance and led the proces
sion to the grave. After the burial the
guests returned to the wedding feast and
spent the evening in mirth and dancing

part, and not in the least disturbed by the
strange vicissitudes of the da-.

Killed by a Rattlesnake.
Another sad story comes from Custer
county, of tho death of a young lady
from the effects of tho bite of a rattle
snake. The following particulars were
given us by Mr. O. T. Lewis, a citizen of
Callaway, who arrived in tho city yester
day. The deceased, Miss Belle Jacks,
about nineteen years of age, resided with
her father on his farm about four miles
southwest of Callaway, on Sand Creek.
On "Wednesday morning last she went to
the barn after a basket of cobs for fuel.
"While returning being barefooted, she
stepped upon the snake, which was in the
beaten path leading from the house to
tho barn, and the reptile immediately
sunk its deadly fangs into one of her
ankles. All remedies at hand were im
mediately applied and a messenger dis
pacthed at once for Callaway for medical
assistance, who soon returned with Dr.
A. L. Mathews, but notwithstanding every
effort made and all available antidotes
used, the young lady expired in the
afternoon. Plum Creek Pioneer.
Last "Wednesday afternoon Charles Ham
ilton who in company with his brother
and two other boys went swimming at thp
lake, was endeavoring to replace the
cylinder short revolver, when it
was discharged. The ball entered his
face just above the left e3'e, forming a
painful and dangerous wound. The at
tention of a companion, Elmer Lewis, was
attracted by the report of the weapon, and
the only one of the boys who saw the lad
fall. lie uttered no out-cry, but lay as if
dead. Aid was soon summoned, and the
boy was conveyed to his father's hotel,
the Hamilton house. Dr. "Waite was
called who made an examination of the
wound and probed for the bullet, but
without being Fuccessful in locating it
Dr. Kay of McCook, was called, who with
Dr. "Waite, held a consultation yesterday
evening. "What were the results of the
consultation, our reporter did not obtain
in time for this issue. The attending
physician does not necessarily consider
the wound a dangerous one, though the
injury to the lower part of the brain may
be greater than has yet been discovered.

The Chief of Police of Buffalo says
that nineteen-twentieths of the criminals
of the land are drinking men, and that
eighteen-twentieths of the crimes com
mitted are planned in saloons. That is
no doubt, true, but it should be remem
berred that the only saloons which crim
inals dare to enter are low dens most of
which would be closed up if the laws
were enforced while the others would
never be licensed if respectable citizens
were allowed any voice in the matter.

A Texas judge by tho name of Cook
don't seem to like Kansas people. Ho
says "they go to the hotbed of New

for their religion, bind the Bible and a

go to hell for their meanness." But there
is hope for Texas yet. The schoolmaster
is abroad in Texas, the state is aroused to
the subject of temperance, and when tho
State has educated, sober judges, they
will not be heard uttering such calumnies.
Mr. J. J. Fred Bandinel, United States
vice consul at Newchwang, China, sends
to the state department a harrowing ac
count of a trip made by himself through
the Hooded districts of China. He was
distributing food and necessaries of life
to the starved people, and during the trip
relieved 396 persons. He says he found
the people generally living on bran or the
chaff of a large grass grown for feeding
cattle. Some were reduced to eating
chopped grass, either moistened in hot
water or baked in cakes, while others feed
on the leaves and seeds of weeds gathered
in the fields.
An interesting phenomenon has for
some time past been observed on the
eastern coast of the Caspian sea. The
Kara Bobbaa is an estuary nearly separ
ated from the main body of the sea by a - ,
bank through which there is an inlet.
The evaporation from this gulf is so
great that a current continually sets in
from the Caspian and as there is no re
turn current, the water of the gulf be.
comes more and more saliferous, and a
deposit of salt is in course of formation
The natural result of this would appear
to bo that in time this gulf would be cut
off from the Caspian, and being thus
dried up will become an extensive salt
The people of Iceland who have suff
ered greatly of late years from failure
of crops, and in large areas from active
volcanoes, which have buried tho country
beneath scoria and ashes, are by a tele
gram this morning reported to be in
starving condition, many having already
died from want of food. During tho last
five years thousands of families have left
Iceland to seek new homes. Many of
these have located in North Dakota or
across the border in Manitoba. They are
an intelligent, peace-loving, law-abiding,
hard working people, and make good
citizens. They bring considerable stock
with them and are mostly successful
farmers. The present population of Ice
land is about 75,000, but it has been stea
dily decreasing, mainly by emigration
during the past ten years.
There arc some very interesting con
tributions to ancient history being made
bv the Pacific railway commission.
While relating the history of the struggle
for the location of the eastern terminus
of the Pacific railroad before the com
mission at Kansas City, Judge Usher, who
was in Lincoln's cabinet at the time, said:
"The advantages of Sioux City, Kansas
City and Omaha were vigorously advo
cated, but Omaha was finally selected as
the terminus of the main road, the other
cities being reached by branches, which
were designed to connect with the main
line at the 100th meridian. When the
advantages of Omaha were first presented
to President Lincoln he remarked:
'Why, I've got a quarter section of land
near there, and if I locate the terminus
at that point people will say I am person
ally interested in the matter.' The fear
of this, continued Mr. Usher, did not
prevent Lincoln from deciding finally
in favor of Omaha." But in due time
Lincoln was overruled and the terminus '
was re-located by Sidney Dillon's nephew
who was then United States circuit judge
and is now tho general consulting attor
ney of the Union Pacific.

plated, and five years are necessary to
