The dailies are devoting much
space to a dry subject.
Polities are not sizzling . They
are beginning to boil.
Anent the report that Bartley
is going to give names of the parties
who have state money it is rumored
that several leading populists are
on the anxious seat.
G. W. Smith of O’Neill and
John Morgan, of Atkinson are can
didates for the democratic nomina
tion for county clerk, subject to a
Bod Good is giving the people of
Book county the best paper they
ever had, except politically. But
outside of itc politics it couldn’t
help being a Good paper.
Mr. Cooper waited for three
weeks before denying he was a can
didate far the pop nomination for
county treasurer. No doubt he dis
covered the handwriting on the
Prof. S. P. Sarensou of Ewing is
being talked of considerably as the
republican candiate for county sup
erintendent Porf. Sarenson is an
educator of experience and would
make an offioial of whom all parties
could be proud of.
Our pop friend in the basement
has refrained from commenting on
the action of the pop county treas
urer of Harlen county who embezzl
ed $10,000 and then tried to burn
the records and sand bag himself to
cover up his crime. Oh yes, all
pops are honest.
Our esteemed friend at Naper
should not allow his hair to turn
gray over the outlook for news
papers in Holt county. The people
of this county treated us pretty well
for nearly a quarter of a oentury
and there is no indications of them
Charles E. Hall, of this city, has
announced himself as a candidate
for the office of sheriff subject to the
action of the republican county con
vention. Charley has an extensive
acquaintance through the county
and if nominated would make his
populistic opponent look like a
half-pence piece before he was
through with him.
It is currently reported, and
from an authentic souroe, that ex
State Senator Hugh O’Neill is a can
didate for the pop nomination for
county judge, and there are those
who are uncharitable enough to say
that the promise of this nomination
was what made Hugh so “loyal and
patriotic” last fall-when he voted
for Frank Campbell for senator in
the oenvention, when with the assist
ance of the other counties and his
own vote he could have been re
St. Louis Globe-Democrate: J.
Pierpont Morgan is the great panic
smasher of the age. Two or three
convulsion have been arranged for
Wall street in the last two months
and Morgan has headed them off.
On the first and most serious occas
ion he was on the other side of the
Atlantic, but the cable kept him in
communication with Wall street and
he sidetraoked the cataclysm which
threatened on account of the North
ern Pacifio fight. He has done the
same more than once since he arriv
ed at home a week or two ago.
Here is a function in which mone
tary magnates of the older days sel
dom figured. Drew, Commodore
Vanderbilt, Jay Gould and most of
the other great financiers precipitat
ed more flurries than they averted,
though, of course, some of the
wrecks which occurred in their time
came without their intervention and
damaged them pecnniarily. Morgan,
however, is a benevolent plutocrat,
who ought to be applauded by even
William J. Bryan.
Charles A. Towne is quoted as
saying: “The free silver question
is absolutley dead. It will not only
not be an issue in 1901, but I do not
believe it will be mentioned in tho
democratic platform or campaign
So long as the present conditions
continue or the supply of gold in
creases, there can be no successful
or serious demand for the free coin
age of, silver.” Towne, like many
other business men, has been par
taker of the tide of prosperty that
has been giving partical demonstra
tions of the falacies of the double
standard theorists and continuing
and re affirming the efficiency of gold
as a money standard.
VALUE OF A SPECIALTY.
Woman Becomes Kgyptologlat Through
Acknowledgment of Ignorance.
Many a Sunday school teacher has
fonnd herself In straits because o( an
Inquiring scholar who puts a fustlude
of questions that she is quite unable to
answer, and ashamed to acknowledge
her ignorance she takes refuges in the
useful cyclopaedia if she is hurried,
and If not, seeks In the town library
the facts needed. An episode of this
nature was the occasion of Mrs. Marie
N. Buckman of Boston, becoming an
Egyptologist. It is fifteen years ago
since she was teaching a class of half
grown boys In Tremont temple and
when her class embarrassed her with
questions, she began to read Egyptian
history for the necessary answers.
From this she went to the study of
hieroglyphics. Constantly attending
the Boston museum of Fine Arts for
the purpose of poring over the treas
ures brought there by the Egypt Ex
ploration Society, she attracted the at
tention of many, not only the museum
authorities, but all sorts of persons,
who wished Information on Egypt, and
at last it became a matter of course
that Mrs. Buckman should act as guide
to small parties who wished to go
through the Egyptian department, and
she was also often invited to write
papers and give lectures on the recent
discoveries of the exploration society.
Naturally, when the business of the so
ciety proved to be too much for the
honorary secretary, Mrs. Buckman
was appointed secretary, and does a
great deal of work in the Boston of
fice, in answering queries and supply
ing all possible Information, and also
securing subscriptions from Interested
Americans, which funds are sent to
the headquarters of the society In Lon
don. She distributes annual reports
and other literature, of which the so
ciety la very liberal, to Its subscribers;
every one who gives $5 a year receives
the annual report, an Illustrated arch
eological report and a handsomely
bound book, Illustrated with many
plates, some of then colored ones, giv
ing a complete account of tho year’s
discoveries. Mrs. Buckman continues
her labors as an Egyptologist.
Eoouomy 1m llalof Ice and Cara of tlio
It Is true that there are plenty of
people who cannot afford a refrigera
tor and who get along comfortably
without one. Where one is fortunate
in having a cool and airy cellar, food
may be kept over night or from meal
to meal with safety. But in intensely
hot woather, Ice is often one of the
necessaries. To get the greatest
amount of good from the Ice do not
chip off pieces for drinking water, but
keep a large bottle of water next the
Ice. As soon as the Ice is brought in
let It be covered with a little blanket
made of old flannel and well tucked In
about it. Have several such small
blankets, as they should be washed at
least every third day. You will in this
way get one-fourth more use out of a
block of ice. Beside the daily care of
the refrigerator it should have one
thorough weekly cleansing and airing.
The shelves and racks may bo washed
In hot suds, rinsed in soda water, then,
in hot water. Scrub the sides and top
and bottom of the inside, using a
skewer point for corners and ledges.
Give the waste pipe most careful at
tention, a strong, flexible wire with a
cloth wound about it, then hot soda
water will be found helpful. These
same precautions observed regarding
any place in whicb food is kept will
prevent any taint, any microbes or any
danger of disease from that source.
To Keep Bread*
Bread when taken from the oven Is
at' its best if removed from the pans,
and each loaf set by itself on its side.
In order that the air may circulate
about It. Allow it to become perfectly
cold before placing In the bread box.
The bread box should be of tin, and to
scald the box and air and dry it each
time before putting the fresh bread
away, will be sufficient, as breutf fs uni
versally baked twice each week, if not
oftener. Please do not use a bread
“blanket,' or bread cloth of any kind
in putting the bread in its box. The
capillary attraction of the cloth
draws the moisture from the bread and
leaves It dry and tasteless. A bread
box should not be air tight. In a close
bpx the bread quickly becomes moldy,
particularly in summer.

A LEGAL EMERGENCY
Which Has Met »* Kooamt a Thorough
A story is told of an old attorney
in Southern Illinois during the war
times, who, when all the young law
yers were at the front, was engaged
one day by an old planter to draw
some affidavits of loyalty by which to
obtain the release of cotton that had
been seized by confiscation. The old
attorney drew the affidavits, and the
planter succeeded in getting his cot
ton, whereupon, with great satisfac
tion, he told the attorney to meet him
on the levee the next morning at 9
o’clock and he would pay him. The
attorney, who was sadly in need of
funds, lay awake all night trying to
decide what charge he should make,
and wondering if $50 would be too
much, and if possibly $100 would be
willingly paid by the old planter, who
had succeeded in getting very valuable
cotton by his aid. With feverish head
and parched lips the old man went
down to the levee at the appointed
time and met the planter, not yet
able to decide what charge he should
make. Without asking him for his
bill the old planter said, “Sit down,
sah,” and, as he took out a huge roll
of bills, “Now, sah, I’ll just count out
what I think, sah, would be a fair
amount, sah, and then, sah, I’ll see
what you have to say about it sah.”
Then, picking of a $500 bill from the
roll, the planter laid it on his knee,
and added another, and another, and
another, until there were five of them,
and, looking up, said, “Now, sah, that
is about what I thought was right, sah,
and what have you to say about it,
sah?” The old attorney, bursting with
suppressed emotion as he saw the bills
laid out, nevertheless struggled to be
equal to the occasion. He strove to
speak, but did so with difficulty. Atl
last his lips parted and he said with
dignity, “Well, I think perhaps you
had better make it another five.”—
Case and Comment.
FINES MAY REACH MILLION.
Successful Haul Made on Keepers of
John E. Overton, a state game pro
tector discovered 2,100 game birds in
the Arctic Freezing Warehouse in New
York. The possession of game birds
at this season by any one in the state
of New York, or the killing of such
birds, is a misdemeanor subject to fine.
The fine is $00 for the first offense and
$25 for each bird. As there were over
2,100 birds- found, the company may
be called upon to pay a fine of $52,500.
Mr. Overton only searched two rooms.
There are forty-seven more rooms
which may contain more game birds.
It is thought that all told there are
nearly 100,000 birds in the house. This
would make the warehouse people
liable to fines amounting to $2,500,000
if the letter of the law could be en
forced. The raid, according to Mr,
Overton, is the largest ever made in
New York, and was most successful,
owing to the fact that it reveals where
thi3 vast amount of unlawful game is
being sent from. Most of it comes
from the far West. The authorities at
the freezing plant assert that the birds
are not their property, but are sent
there in cases and barrels to be stored.
They say also that they have no knowl
edge of just what is in the place, but
the law holds that any one having
game out of season in his possession
will be held responsible and subject
to the fine. They said they did not
know where the game came from or
where it went, as they were in the
cold-storage business not dealers in
game or poultry.—Exchange.
Warm Weather Diet,
“It Is astounding,’ said a physician
to the writer, “how little thought the
people give to their food in relation
to various seasons of the year. I would
entreat every housekeeper not to buy
a morsel of pork, ham or sausage :'rom
June till October. Reserve even beef,
lamb and veal for the coolest days of
summer, and in long, hot spells let
meat alone entirely. Nature provide*
for these burning days with vegetables
and fruit, tender chicken pnd fine,
firm, white-fleshed fish. It you have
left-over foods to be utilized, convert
them into chilled, appetizing salads in
stead of ragouts. If soups are a neces
sity, let them be thin consomme or
chicken soup, not purees or bisques.
I would prohibit pie and rich cake,
and let fruit, ices, delicate jellies or
milk puddings take their place. I’d
also put a veto on hot breads. If peo
ple could turn an X-ray on the poor,
(overworked stomachs I’m called to
care for all summer long and see the
mischief done by overeating and eat
ing things that have no business to
be cooked in hot weather, they wrould
realize I am speaking earnest truth.’-’
lice* Stine Hones To Death.
The other day, as Frank O'Neil, an
employe of Miller & Lux, was driving
a team hitched to a derrick wagon,
near Los Banos, Mexico, his horses
were attacked by bees and stung to
death, while he had a narrow escape
with his own life. The bees find their
best feed on Mijler’s immense alfalfa
fields, and are swarming around so
thick that it is often unBafo for teams
to pass them. As soon as they were
attacked the animals jumped sidewise
and broke the wagon tongue, and the
driver at once cut the team loose. One
animal jumped a fence Into a place
where the bees were, and was stung
to death in a few minutes, while the
other ran for the plow camp, where
it died a few hours later. O’Neil was
literally covered with bee stings, but
fprtunately they did not seem to poi
son bun a£ badly as they do some peo
ple, and he has recovered. The team
was one of the largest and most gen
tle on th« Miller * Lux ranch.
New Names for T.ondon.
John Burns has found a new name
for London, and it is not the least
happy of the various descriptions
which have been applied to the great
city, says the St. James’ Gazette. The
Cinderella of the Cities, the member
for Battersea calls it, remembering its
backwardness in municipal affairs.
Archdeacon Sinclair was thinking of
another aspect of the metropolis when
he spoke of her in a sermon at St.
Paul’s as “a good-natured monster of
Months of Ant-Eat«rs.
Ant-eaters are in the curious posi
tion of being practically unable to
open their mouths. It may almost be
said, indeed, that they have no mouths
to open. There is just a small round
orifice at the end of the snout, through
which about two feet of worm-like
tongue come wriggling out. And as
this tongue is bathed with liquid glue
instead of saliva, every ant which it
touches adheres to it, and the animal
licks the insects up by hundreds at a
New Kind of Mouse.
On a sand island in Dublin bay a
new kind of mouse has been found.
It resembles the ordinary mouse in all
except its color, which is that of the
sand, and the naturalist attribute that
to an interposition of nature for its
protection from the owls and hawks
on the island. It is supposed that
they are the descendants of castaway
mice, and that the protective colora
tion is a gradually acquired result of
President Hill’s Model Farm.
President James J. Hill of the Great
Northern Railroad Company owns a
model farm at Pleasant Lajce, Minn.,
about eight miles from St. Paul. He
exhibits keen interest in the develop
ment of agriculture and stock raising
on his farm, and has frequently given
lectures at the agricultural experi
ment farm in Minnesota, lying midway
between St. Paul and Minneapolis. Mr.
Hill’s farm contains a buffalo and
deer park. ,
To the Major-General Commanding:
This is to give notice to all concerned
that illegible miracles is now being
performed by bare men in belly of
great gun, contrary to astringent or
ders issued by my lord god. Therefore
your petitioners pray for correct diag
nosis of same, and removal from can
tonment boundaries with exhibitions

Steele’s “Hosts of the Lord.”
Georgia Coal Reefs.
Within the last two years several
remarkable reefs of fossil coral have
been discovered near Bainbridge, on
the Flint river, in Georgia. One reef
so found consisted of coral heads, some
of them more than a foot in diameter.
Between twenty-five and thirty spe
cies have been recognized in these
Georgia reefs. Geologists say that
they belong to the tertiary age.
Writing Life of Gladstone.
John Morley, who is writing a “Life
of Gladstone,” gets on slowly with the
work. It took him a long time to sort
out the vast accumulation of papers
left by Mr. Gladstone in Hawarden
castle. By way of explaining the slow
progress he is making Mr. Morley
says: “Imagine a life of nearly
ninety years filled to the utmost ca
Typewriter Print. Gaelic.
The most recent evidence of the de
velopment of the Irish language move
ment, under the stimulus of the Gaelic
league, is the production by a Dublin
firm of a typewriter which writes in
beautiful neat Irish characters. It if
not an uncommon thing now in Dub
lin to hear in government offices con
versation carried on in Irish.
Raising Rice by Irrigation.
Since the Louisiana and Texas farm
ers learned to raise rice by irriga
tion they have invested 55,000.000 in
1,500 miles of canals, capable of flood
ing 300,000 acres, and spent $1,700,000
in building thirty modern rice mills.
Under the new system rice lancjs pay
a net profit pf $15 an acre.
Wooing In Atchison.
It is always customary for the fam
ily to sit on the back porch when the
daughter has a beau, but an Atchison
girl has such a good thing calling on
her that the family leave the premises
and go and sit in a vacant lot across
the alley.—Atchison Globe.
London's Smoke Cloud.
It is estimated that London's smoke
cloud Is fed by an estimated daily
waste of (6,000 tons of coal. The cloud
is distinguishable at Loekinge, sixty
four milee from London, and in its
passage a distinct residuum is left upr
on the soil.
