To The People of Cass and Aciloln
I desire to say u few worels to t lie peo

lie v ing t hut I an. competent to give a

owned and bred the, stallion. Caj Walk--er,
who was the first horse to take a

been handling horses for breeding pur
poses. I have bundled nnd bred Frint
its, Morgans, Copper liottoins, W ishous,
1 Iamiltonians, CI ydesdidc-8, Xonnoiis and
others. I have bought and brought to
Cass county, ii large number of horses
even before the li. &, M. ll. K. had a rail
here and among them were a Printer
Stallion, a Copper ISottom Stallion, four
Norman Stallions, four Clydesdale Stal
lions ami others and have bred all these
horsi s at dilTt rent times. I have been
on the horse market for 20 yearn and am
by. this time, certainly competent to
know what horse or breed of horses will
bring the most money in this or any
otlu r market and which are the
most valuable to stock raisers
my opinion is that the Clydesdale and
Norman are worth more money to the
breeders and it is based upon this fact,
that a three year old Norman or Clydes
dale draft horse is worth and can be sold
in market for 140 to $200 and the smal
ler horses at the same ago will not pos
sibly bring over $75. .
I have sai l this much for the benefit
of bleeders and in explanation, and I
further desire to say that we have now at
our stables in IMattsmouth two Clydes
dale and one Norman horses good clean

-Tin; prospect for a generous crop in
the west was never better at this season
probably, thin today. The copious
rain-:, falling so evenly, so softly and
so generally, is almost a guarantee that
the farmers will find their industry a
most lucrative one for 8. A recent trip
in various sections ol Nebraska, extend
ing from one end of the state to the oth
er, enables Us to predict a full yield and
an immense acreage. In the Western
Dortion of the state, where rains have not
been just as was most desired, this year
it has come a.i gently nnd soakin.ly as
could be wished by the most chronic
kicker. Vegetation has grown at a won
derful paec and we doubt if any stale in
tin; Uni n can point to as satisfactory a
condition for field crops for 1888 as Ne

The manner in which some of the
viol-iters of the law are having justice
incctcil out to them is commendable of our
city authorities. If the same course
was mceted to all in all cases
as" it was to those yesterday, who
were guilty of violating the laws of the
city and state we would have less depre
dations to contend with than we do. This
idea of letting men violate the law just
because they are personal friends of ours
is poor policy. We believe that every
man who knowingly and wilfully vio
lates the law should be punished to the
fullest extent of the law, and should this
be put to practice there would be very
f . w such r.'i's coming up before our
courts. What is the use of haying laws if
they are not obeyed?
Tho committee of the M. 11 Confer
ence appointed to select a place for the
meeting of the next general conference
have reported in favor of Omaha. This

it is very seldom that the conference
changes the decision of the committee.
Omaha is to be congratulated on her suc
cess over her competitors and we predict
that when the general conference assem
bles in 102 she will beennnenly proud
of the selection made by the committee.
Truly Omaha is becoming a noted city.

From Thursday's Unity.
Many different stories are told in re
gard to the shooting affray of last night
and we are unable to draw any conclus
ions from it, but we believe it would be
nothing more than eight, that when the
excitement dies down that the Pinker
toii should come back and surrender him
self for trial. The truth of the matter
could then be come (it and it cannot be
got in any other way. It is not fair to
judge a man on reports, but when it
conips to sworn testimony you can de
pend upon it. It is hardly likely thut a
man holding the position the Piukerton
does would shoot without a cause and on
trial the true cause could be brought out.

Plenty of Snakes.
Dexrsox, Tex., May 21. The pnst
week has been an eventful one. A num
ber of venomous snakes principally rat
tiers, have been killed at business houses
and pr.vate residences almost in the heart
of the city. Several persons haye also
been brought to the city to be treated fo;
snake bites. In one instance a hypoder
mic injection of a solution of permanga

was almost immediate.

Lawkenck. Ivan., May 21. About 2
o'clock this afternoon while two boys
were gathering driftwood aloug the south
bank of the Kansas river, two miles
above this city, they discovered the body
of a young boy lodged in the drift. The
authorities were notified, and the sheriff
and coroner proceeded to the place and
held an inquest. The body was that of it
white boy about 8 years old, apparently
had been well dressed, but was in advano

nothing about his clothes to iden'ify
him. It is report-d that a boy has been
missing from Wamego, and it is thought
this is the one.

HOW DIRTY CLOTHES ARE CLEANED
ON A LARGE SCALE.
The First Operation Soap Iiolveci In
Hot Wter Through the 'Wringer In
the Drying I loom Sturcbeil. and I'n
tarched C lothing Ironing.
There Isn't much time lost in a laundry
In any department. Thirty-Jive jieoplo, in
cluding drivers and receivers and deliverers
or goods, will handle 2,000 shirts, 200 dozens
of cuffs and collars and 00,000 pieces of or
dinary clothing in a week, ami whilo doing
this they will take in a shirt, wash and iron
it, and wrap it up for delivery in two hours
and a quarter. The first operation is in tlm
washroom. Here are seen rows of washing
machines, circular, with an inner perforated
revolving ami reversing; chamber for the
clothes. The clothes are thrown into thin,
l2o shirts at a time, or tlm equal of that in
other pieces, and clear filtered water run in
on them and the chamber startwL Making
a dozen revolutions in one direction, it auto
mutically reverses and makes the same num
ber in the other, the clothes falling baek on
oho ribbed sides. Bar soap is something that
U almost unknown in a steam laundry. The
soap uwed is received in largo barrels
of clear white shavings, and is called "chipped
laundry." One of these barrels makes eight
of suds, being thrown into a large vat and
there boiled with water until it has been
fully dissolved and reduced to about the con
sistency of buttermilk. This i.s always kept
In stock cool, and poured into the washers
while the inner chamber is still revolving,
the motion tieing between tho perforated
shell of this chamber and the water tight
covering. The clothes are washed, rinsed
and blued in this tub by the aid of valves,
the flj-st suds being warm, the second boiling,
and the rinsing cold. The clot lies are rinsed
and then blued, the full operation requiring
but an hour and twenty minutes.
From tho washer the clothes go to the
wringer, though this machine gets its name
simply because it performs the same service
as the household wringer. It looks more like
a lioiling kettle, though investigation shows
it to be double, the inner one being perfor
ated and revolving 300 times a minute. The
clothes arc thrown in this, the power put on,
and being thrown against the perforated
sides, are dried in a few minutes. The kettle
takes in 100 largo, heavy linen sheets at a
time, drying them in thirty minutes. From
this the clothes go up stain to the drying
and starching room. Cuffs, collars aud shirts
and such articles as must be starched are
thrown into a revolving and reversing ma
chine similar to the washer, and are then
passed through an ordinary wringer, if
necessary, or hung up to dry. The dry room
is surrounded by steam pij)es, the "horse" on
which the clothes are hung being pulled out
on rollers while the clothes are being hung,
and then pushed back. It matters not whether
the sun is shining and tho wind blowing, or
the rain coming down a bucketful at a drop.
In twenty or thirty minutes the clothes como
out dry. The unstarched goods go to the
mangier, and the starched ones to tho upper
story to be ironed.
There are not many cheats about a steam
laundry, but there is one in mangling which
has never been detected. The mangier is a
series of blanketed rolls, with a largo cen
tral steel cylinder, kept very hot. The
clothes are passed through this twice, coming
out with every appearance of having been
ironed. Two out of three ladies sending
family washing to the laundry accompany it
with a note directing tho laundryman to
starch their tablecloths or spreads. Does
he do it? Not often. Instead, he takes the
clothes as they come from tho wringer,
straightens them out and runs them through
the mangier damp, giving them frequently nu
extra turn through the machine. They como
out stiff and glossy, but without starch, and
the housewife uever knows the difference.
The mangier is one of the greatest pieces of
machinery used in a laundry. On large
clothes or sheets, two gil-ls operate it, one on
either side, and in the course of an ordinary
day they will run through or iron 10,000 to
1:2,000 pieces. On towels and napkins four
girls can work at a machine very comfort
ably. The mangier has a pressure of 200
pounds to the inch, and if the girls ever get
a finger in ahead of the cloth it is gone sure..
Starched articles of clothing go to another
department after leaving the drying room.
Cutis and collars are ironed in a machine
somewhat similar to the mangier; first, how
ever passing through a dampener, two rub
ber rolls running overa steel roll, the bottom
of which is in water. The linen is then
passed anil repassed between the ironing
rolls, the pressure producing the gloss, li
then passes through a shaping machine, a
very simple contrivance, similar to that used
in other branches of trade for the same pur
pose. Turned down collars, however, are
submitted to a different process. They nre
run through a curious little machine, with
an upper roller, to which water is conveyed.
This runs along the seam, where the bend is
to be made, and passing on out the collar is
bent without cracking. There is also a trick
of this same kind in buttoning stiffly starched
pieces, employed altogether in a laundry,
and to a limited extent outside. The laun
dry girls call it "spitting on the backs;" in
elegantly, it may bo, but nevertheless ex
pressively. The button bole is simply wet
slightly on the back side, and this done tho
button may be slipped through the stiffest
button hole with the greatest ease.
The ironing of a shirt is an Interesting
feature of laundry work. It is a curious
point that an iron is never used except in
finishing, and then, only a perforated iron
which, while used in the same way as a sad
iron,cannot be called by that name. Before
its use, too, the shirt to ironed so that it
would be acceptable to nine out of ten men.
The shirt first goes to the bosom ironer. This
is a young lady attired more like a school
mistress than a laundry girL The shirt is
first fastened to a board, or an iron hand
printing press bed, shaped like the old shirt
board, clamped down at the neck and bottom,
and run under a steel roller, heated by gas
from the center, the gas flame being fanned
by air until it is brought to a blue heat
Passing under this roller and back again, the
bosom is pretty and glossy enough for a ball
event. The shirt then goes to the band ironer,
and the young lady who operates this must
have considerable skill, more, indeed, than
any one would imagine. Her work is
eiisply to iron and shape the neck and wrist
bands between heated wheel rollers. Fre
quently a collar is sent back to tho laundry,
the owner saying it is not bis, as it does not
fit him. The trouble really is in the seem
ingly 6imple shaping and ironing of the
n&ckband. The important part of the work
is then done, and tha shirt goes to the body
ironer. The machine used here is also a gas
heated cylinder, which performs its work
perfectly and very rapidly. Then the soli
tary ironer takes the shirt and finishes some
thing that seouis already finished. With the ;
Hception pf this finishing and the sprink
ling of shirts, thad u tot a mov3 about a !

In facial and subcutaneous neuralgias,
some surprising results appear to have
been obtained in Franco from tho com
bined action of the constant current and
chloroform. Professor Adamkiuviez some

electrode into which he is able to intro
duce chloroform; under the influencj f
the current, the chloroform of the elect
rode, which is connected with tho p'si
tive pole of the battery, penetrates the
tissues, a result which may bo made suf
ficiently apparent by coloring tho chloro
form with a gentian volet, and then pars
ing the current through the car of a'rab
bit. It produces a triple action through
tho constant current and the burning,
and finally anaesthesia. Professor Adum

this method has proved remarkably suc
cessful, nnd confidently recommends it.
