A Queer Clock.
Philip Thierolf has added quite a
novelty to the attractions of his
saloon in Hie Anheuser-Busch
block in the nature of a cathedral
clock about eight feet high and
about live feet wide at the bottom.
It is an artistic piece of wood
carvingand scrollwork, set off witli
minarets and towers, giving it
quite a unique appearance.
Among its peculiarities outside of
novelty in design is tiie tact that
every half hour the clock, by an
orchestrion attachment, plays a
prett- tune for two minutes. The
entire case and design is the work
of our fellow townsman. Mr. John
Retiland, who must certainly be an

Farmer Leonard of Raymond was
in the city yesterday and relates
that a panther is running loose in
the neighborhood, devouring
the stock and committing other
depredations There are a number
four horses and two mules to the
machine and made things fly, so
that by four o'clock he had cut and
bound seventeen acres of wheat.
About four o'clock while he was on
the ground back of the machine
oiling it up, a sharp stroke of
lightning startled the teams and
away they went as fast as they
coma run. a oaro wire lenee was
no obstacle and barely slackened
their pace as they crashed over it
without seriously hurting the
horses. On they went through

ates the sickle) when one of the
leaders fell: the other horses
tramped over the unfortunate but
wiien the machine struck him it
was suddenly stopped as the teams
which were well nigh tired out
could not budge the heavy binder
and Mr. Wheeler lost no lime in
extricating his horse from its peril
ous position under the machine.
On taking an inventory, it was
found the horse had some
ugly wounds made hy the sickle

neither horror nor fehame. During th j
twenty-five years that have passed since
then the amelioration in the condition of ;
the soldier has been incalculable, but 1 :
should be untrue to their memory if 1 '
did not lift up my testimony that the i
men of the old days endured their more
arduous lot with a grand primitive resig- j
They knew that the quartermaster and i
the butcher were in collusion in regard .
to the .meat ration, that the troop ser- !
geant major cooked their accounts, and j
that the pay corporal had glutinous tiu- j
gers. Their captain habitually addressed !
them as brutes; the surgeon left his du- :
ties for days to go hunting. There was J
no quick escape ror them from those
abuses, for some of them were "lifers,"
and all were long service men.
But there were no professional agita
tors in those days, nor any barrack room
lawyers "who knew their rights;" there
was not a great deal of that commodity
of a little of which the poet speaks as
a dangerous thing," and there were no
halfpenny newspapers. The discipline
was rigid, how rigid no younger of to

A Patent Horseshoe.
A patent covers a horseshoe which pos
sesses many advantages. On its under
6urface is stamped a pattern which gives
a number of points for the securing of a
better grip on the pavement, and this,
where wooden pavements are used, is an
important consideration. The shoe is
about half the weight of an ordinary
shoe, being two and a half pounds the set
of four; it takes less time and less money
to fix, has only four nails, as against the
usual seven. Being a three-quarter shoe,
it leaves the frogs and heels on the ground
which prevents concussion to the foot
and leg, contraction and corns.
The only preparation the hoof requires
after the old shoe is taken off is that the
rasp must be used on the toe and Quar
ters, making a reduction of about one- J
eighth of an inch on the lower side of the
hoof. The frog and heels and back part
of the foot should not be touched. Thia
shoe is made in accordance with the well
established principle that the more the
hinder part of the foot which is very
tough is used, the harder and healthier
it becomes. New York Telegram.

Tne Wrestling: Match.
F. C. Desmond, the wrestler who
came here claiming to be a ball
player, has turned out to be a
champion wrestler and has made
the Harshmans hunt their hole,
and turn their sportive heads else
where. The surprising activity
that J. Caston accepted Desmond's
challenge to throw anj' man in
Omaha three times in one hour,
created comment. Now the sports
of Nebraska City are wondering
who this man Desmond can be and
the excitement the match has
created here is surprising.

The peculiarity about it is that worsted

We are often asked for a cure for head
ache. A certain wise physician classes
headaches among the ailments which
have baffled his profession. At a medi
cal meeting a member 6aid: "Did any of
you ever cure a headache? I never did."
Several doctors having mentioned their
treatment, he replied: "Oh, you only re
lieved it. I can do that. But have you
ever cured it?"
No one could answer yes. The shops
contain nostrums 'enough, but did any
one ever find himself more than tem
porarily relieved by them?
Nature, unaided, sometimes effects a
permanent cure by the changes which
the system undergoes in the process of
time. Persons who have been Bubject to
headache are often more or less fully re
lieved after about the age of fifty. This
is perhaps a result of the shrinkage of
the brain and the hardening of the
tissues, which begins at about that period.
Changes in one's condition or habits, or
in climate, may sometimes effect a cure
by removing the disturbing cause.
