.Secretary Husk I have just returned
from a trip through the .Northwest with
the Secretary of Agriculture. To us the
most interesting point we visited wna
Grand Island, Nek It was especially
interesting because a great heet sugar
plant has just been established there. It
is probably the largest in the country,
and, while it is new, it is complete in
every detail. It is a model sugjir mill,
and promises to accomplish wonderful
results. The department is taking a
great interest in the beet sugar industry,
which is still in its infancy in this
country, although it is beyond the
stage of experiment. The Grand Inland
mill will make considerable sugar this
year, aud the beets are of splendid ifual

From Tii".-uay's Daily,
Geo. Baxell came down the street near
the Fairfield place with a horse hitched
to a spring wagon this morning, and tin-
horse took fright, rushed madly around
the curve as the car track, which turned
the wagon as well as the horse wrong
side up and threw Mr. B several feet.
The horse was a vicious one but lost some
of its conceit of it lay there wi-h feet
sticdnir straight, up. On taking an in
ventory it was lounu tliat Air. li was
not seriously hurt; the horse was able to
walk and the wagon only had a smashed

fatal runaway, as the hill is very steep

greeted at their first service by a good

The services commence at 7:30, and

Quite a number of the friends of Mr.
and Mrs. Leek, who reside on the Louis
ville road south of the Fitzgerald forty,
conceived and carried out a very sue
cessful surprise on theji last night; the
occasion being their tenth wedding anni
versary. The crowd with tinware
enough to start a store, found their in
tended host in bed, but he was routed
out and enjoyed the festivities as heart
ily as though he had been forewarned.
Bounteous refreshments, singing and
some nice music on the violin and accor
deon, with social converse passed off a
delightful evening which all agreed was
a success in every particular. At a late
hour, with hearty good wishes for Mr.
and Mrs. Leek, the company retired to
their hemes. Those present were:
Robert Walker and wife, Peter Bates and
wife, Edward Bate3 and wife. C. S.

urday, and on Sunday Mr. and Mrs.
Streight went with them to the Bend,
where they yisited v,-ith Jason Streight

was an old neighbor of the Streight
family when they were residents down

what he saw of the west.
A Toug;li Character.
Sileott, the inaa who broke jail last
night, is quite a noted character in crim
inal circles, lie killed a man in Tarkio,
Mo., with a neckyokc, but the man he
killed did not have a much better rep
utatiou than himself and he was released
on the self-defense theory. Less than a
year ago he was hired to aud burned a
barn at Mound City, Mo. The detectives
overhauled him in Denver, after he had
broke jail and skipped. After he was
brought back he turned state's evidence
and gave the man away who had hired
him to commit the foul crime, in order
to save his own neck, which he succeeded
in doing. lie had been loafing about
this city for some time when he
was run in for drunk and disorderly and
being without means, he had to board
out his fine. Instead of censure, the
sheriff deseryes a vote of thanks if he
has so easily ridded the town of Silcott's
Of the order of Chosen Friends was
instituted at the G. A. R. Hall last night
by Deputy Supreme Councilor Nelson
and his assistant, Mr. Tealgarden of
Omaha, with 25 charter members. The
lodge starts out very auspiciously, and is
highly spoken of as one of the best be
nevolent orders extant. The death ben
efits are from $500 to $3000, and the
sick benefits arj from $5 to $15 per
week. The order was founded in 1879
and now has 40,000 members. The of
ficers elected last night were, Henry
Gering, Past Councilor; E. L. Siggins,
Chief Councilor; Waldemar Bceck, Vice
Councilor; A. W. Lewis, Prelate; Win.
Osborn, Sec'y.; Chas. Peterson, Treas.;
R. Hansen, Marshall; L. C. Curtis, Guard;
Wm. Cook, Warden; A. M. Hansen,
Sentry. Trustees are Mrs. Chas. Peterson,
Mrs. A. W. Lewis and G. W. Walker.
Tom Sileott and E. Younker made
their escape from the county jail last
night by picking a hole through the
brick wall under the south
window on the west side. They
got out after twelve o'clock as the dep
uty sheriff was in the jail at that hour
and every thing was all right. Sileott
was in for drunkenness and his time
would have been out today. Younker had
been out on bail and in fact part of
the time he did not even have bail but
he made no effort to get away and for
that reason the sheriff did not put them
in the cage, but allowed them the free
dom of the corridor, but it seems his
confidence was misplaced. I will not
cost the county as much by considerable
to repair the wall, as it would to haye
tried, and boarded the prisoners. It
must have grieved Bauer to have set
till in the cage and see the others gain

That funnv sheet known as the
World-Herald is tilling the people that
"Kerosene oil will up 10 or 'JO pirr
cent" on account of the iucreus' d 'trice
of tin. The 'V.-II. is getting to be a
tiresome prevaricator. Oil is handeled in
iron tank cars, iron tank wagons and
wooden barrels almost exclusively, until
it reaches the customer, who usually has
a tin can in which to store the fluid.
According to the logic of this free trade
oracle, the reduction in the tariff on iron
and wood ought to reduce the price of
the oil from 2 to per c r.t. Oil
ought therefore to be from lo to :'() per
cent cheaper thon under the old tariff.
