Decoration day has come and gone by.
It passed oil quite acceptably. Not near
is m. my people were out as should be on
soi-h occsions. There were two runaways
caused by tin beating of the drums. One
team smashed the buggy, the other was
s'opp' d before any damage was done.
The addiss was very good.
Jluilding.s are going tip everywhere.
Politics is not boiling very much now.
Too cool weather for it. Too tool for
corn, even for small grain. When hot
weather conies, then will the water works
be of service here. Politics will boil;
scum w ill rise or the surface. There will
bj need of a good deal of stirring with
the stirierto keep it from boiling over.
-As our reporter was wending his
way down Main street the other evening,
h's attention was attracted by several
loud talkers who were about to risk a
small quantify of "filthy lucre" on their
capability as to lung power by testing
the amount of wind which they each
could utilize on a lung tester which Mr.
(J. 'ling had on exhibition in his drug
store. After each had exercised his lungs
to such an extent by a loud flow of elo
(piee.ee and were quite sure none could
blow the machine out of gear, each had
his turn. As is invariably the case where
a crow.! is seen in trouble on the street, a
couj le of politki tns were participating
in tin' exercises, and from all appearance
were doing excelltnt work. The demo
crat, being d'feated in his contest with
the o'dier politician apparently did not
feil th? best over the defeat, and. wishiug
to knock h"s competi.or out of the box,
became a little sarcastic over the matter
a nil expressed himself by saying he al
ways knew the republican to be a good
blower. In reply the, republican said
that he had received and accepted iu
good part considerable abuse from him
5a various ways, but the worst rub against
his grain was occasioned a short time ago
v. hen he he.nded in his name to the Young
Men's Democratic Club, stating that lie
wished to become an honorary member.
As the democrat is a much smaller man,

ground which, no doubt, was the means of
saving his life. Some one near by hear
ing the boy'.-i screamy soon discovered his
location, and it was only a short time un
til the whole neighborhood learned of
the accident. A rope was soon procured
and after tying a noose at one end drop
ped it to him. The little fellow was pos
sessed of considerable nerve, for after the
rope reached him he secured it under his
hi'ins and was toon lifted to the top. He
was asked if he had been badly hurt and
replied: " No, not very much, only it is
awful hard for me to breathe." Dr.
Shipmiin was summoned and was soon

confined to his home for some time
although he is r.ut fatally injured.
SPARK OF LIFE LEFT.
Sheridan's Death Can Only
Averted by a Miracle.
Washington, June 5. 2 a. in. Gen
eral Sheridan is restingquietly. Dr. Pep
per is expected to arrive from Philadel
phia within half an hour. Colonel Blunt
has just driven dotvu to the train to meet
him. There will probably be no change
during the night as the sinking spells
usually come on in the daytime. The
action of the heart is so rapid that more
blood is forced into the heart than can be
ti'ieated, hence the congestion and subse
sequent hemorrhage. The general's diet
is confined almost exclusively to pepto
nized milk, which does not give the
strength required to combat the disease.
Midnight Those waiting at the bed
side are expecting the spark of life to die
out at any moment. All the hope and
cheerfulness which marked Sunday has
gone, and instead of hope and life, it is
despair and death. Mrs. Sheridan, who
has been a constant attendant, bears every
indication of hopelesness. The brave
woman realizes that there is no hope and
that her gallant husband is surely passing
away. When the attack came on today,
it came without the premonitory symp
toms which have usually manifested
themselves. It was sudden and it was
by the most strehous efforts that the break
in the thread of life was prevented. The
general had an hemorrhage which show
ed that his lungs are in much worse con
dition than has been admitted. Masses
of coagulated blood of a dark color were
expelled from the lungs and the sands of
life seemed fast ebbing away. In spite
of his weak condition and thesappingof
his constitution by his military exertions
he rallied at the last moment when the
case seemed lot, and just as his troeps
were lead from hopeless defeat in the old
days, did his determination to
defeat disease overpower the con
queror once again. But it was
but the rally of a forlorn hope. He can
not win. He must succumb. Today the
nurse fre-m Baltimore, the faithful Sister
of Charity who has been constantly at
his side, was compelled to give up, and
she was relieved by another from that
Father Chappclle, of St. Mathew's

not been borne out those present today
say that Ihe end is certainly near, and
that nothing but a miracle can save him.

Today our surplus products are esti

rate of over 2o,000 acres annually; today
we can boast of over 4,000 miles of run

it is of national, yea, of world wide re
cord, that Nebraska, among the youngest
of the sisterhood of states, has borne off
national and inter-uational agricultural

acknowledged fact based upon scientific
analysis and crop products, that no more
productive soil exists. Today with quite

A Worklngman's Demonstration in
Favor of President Diaz.
City op Mkxico, via V.i. Paso, Tex..
June 4. Today there wus an immense
WOl kingmen's demonstration in the inter
cut of the election of (ieii. Porlirio Diaz.
All the workingmeir nocieties and labor
Unions of the capital and surrounding
towns assembled eaily this morning at
the statue of Carlos III. at the ciiy end
of the Reform Drive, which lends to
Chapultepec. There were perhaps (1000
persona in the assemblage, and many
hundred banners with appropriate in
scriptions and seven or eight bauds.
While the column was forming a number
of orators addressed the assemblage, as
was done at Several points of tin; city.
A little later the column passed through
the principal streets, and finally halted
in front of the National Palace, where
many thousand people had already been
gathered for more than half an hour.
The air was rent with cheers or rather
"vivas" for Poifhio Diaz, the people's
candidate for president When (Jen.
Diaz made his appearance on the central
balcony of the palace the enthusiasm was
increased tenfold. (!tii. Diaz bowed re
peatedly, but an address was impossible
on account of the size of tlie multitude
and the height of the balcony. A little
later the President received a committee
composed principally of presidents of
societies, when there was a h-nsant ex
change of sentiment, (hi.. Diaz icplving
to the remarks made by exprcs.ing his
gratitude for the workingnien's demon
stration of sympathy, and called attention
to the improved condition of the country
and predicted continued and increased
The fact is, Gen. Diaz is the choice of
nine-tenths of the people for president,
and the opposition to him is too insig
nificant to justify organization. It is to
be supposed that there will be a few
electoral votes cast for other favorites,
but they will be very few. There is a
feeling that it is absolutely necessary for
the good of the country that Diaz should
remain in office four years longer, in
order that h ; may continue the work of
reform and improvement which he has
MILLS STRIKES A SNAC.
He Attempts t Force Action by the
House and tho Republicans
Wasiiixotox, June 4. The republican
members of the house explain their action
in breaking the quorum in the house to
day by the statement that the day was un
der the regular order set apart for mo
tions to suspend the rules and pass meas
ures called up by individuals. In pre
paration for such on order Representa
tive Merrill of Kansas had made ready to
move to pass the senate dependent bills.
Had democrats seen fit to dispense with
"suspension day " and proceed with con
sideration of the tariff there would have
been no opposition. Rut the burden of
complaint among the republicans is that
after Mills had recognized the character
of the day by a motion to suspend thc
tules and pass resolution setting apart
certain evening scssious for action upon
committee reports, parliamentary usages
were violated by the refusal of the speak
er pro tem. to recognize members on the
republican side to make a suspensory
motion. Therefore they refused to take
up the tariff bill. The apparent cxpl ui t
tion of the course pursued by the demo
cratic side is that the committee on rules
wished to make an opportunity for legis
lative business other than the tariff bill.
Therefore Mills pursued the plan of mov
ing the report in the shape of a resolution
on suspension day, when it could not be
amended under the rules.
