Ill the streets of Omaha at 1
o'clock last night George Smith, a
negro who criminally assaulted
Lizzie Yeates, a live-ycar-old girl
of that city, Wednesday afternoon,
was hangi il by an infuriated mob
of citizens. Attempts were made to
pursuade the crowd to let the. law
deal with the culprit, but the mob
answered with jeers and hisses
The doors and windows gave way
under the uressure exerted by the
battering ranis and the terrified
and trembling negro was taken
from the jail, a rope tied about his
neck and a strap to his feet, and
dragged hastily to a telephone pole
in front of lloyd's new opera house.
The pole was quickly climbed and
willing hands quickly threw the
other end of the rope over a trolly
wire and the victim, gaping for
breath, was pulled to the top, where
he suspended in the midnight air
until pronounced dead.
It appears that this was not the
fustolTenseof which the victim was
guilty, as he committed a similar
assault at lvast Omaha last year.
He was tried in a Council lilulfs
court, but released on the grounds
that theollense was committed on
the Nebraska side of the line.
Immediately after the terrible act
was completed a' prominent man
said: "Gentlemen, I am sorry such
a thing as this has happened in our
beautiful city, but we have children
of our own.".

The philosophy of the curreut of air
in caves suddenly dawned uioti him.
As is well kuowu the uir of a warm day
in summer is umch lighter on the out
side of a cave or cellar than it ia inside.
Consequently the cold, heavy air rushes
out wit h great violenceenough in this
ease to cause the trouble spoken of and
throw the tmrty down the hill.
Later, relating this tale, an old timer
told your correspondent of a former ad
venture of his at the same place. On a
cold day in the early winter he was
tracking a deer along this hillside, when
he waa astonished to see the cave open
up before him. and he noticed that the
suow seemed to have oeen (iisiunwo
very recently, as though a body had
been dragged into the entrance.
Without thinking, he stepped forward
to examine into the canse or the dis
turbed condition of the snow, when he
felt himself violently pulled Into the
cave, the force pulling him from his
feet fie felt a shock, and for awhile
was oblivious to all around him. When
his senses returned he found he was
lying by and partially upon the body of
a deer. Upon examination he found the
body of the deer yet warm. This led to
a Htill closer examination. He at last
determined that the force of the current
of air blowing into the cave had drawn
the deer in, killing it. bat that when hi
waa drawn in the idiock was somewhat
obviated by his striking the deer, thus
saving him from death. The explana
tion is just the reverse of the other, the
air being warmer inside the cave thnu
out. The curreut nows into ine cave
during the winter, thus accounting for
the strange affair. Denver Sun.

Zebras can never be tamed, unless the

of a tragic, fute which befell one of tbein,
captured when he was 7 or 8 years old.
He had joined atroopof horses belong

finally allowed himself to be driven with
them into a kraal or inclosnre. It was
theu determined to keep hiin, and if pos
sible to domesticate him.
For this purpose he was lassoed and
tied to a tree, but so ferocious was he in
the presence of man that the greatest
precautious had to be observed in ap
proaching him. All possible means were
takeu to induce htm to teeu. w nen or
tnred he was in spleudid condition, and
his coat shone iu the sun. Herbage was

A pretty story, which has, moreover,
the merit of being true, is told of a cer
tain professional singer. He had a beau
tiful tenor voice, of which he was apt to
take the liest of care, so that when he
was crossing the Atlantic one summer
with a party of friends, they were not
surprised to find that he disappeared
from view every evening at jiuit about
the same time. "f
"Afraid of the uiglit air." said ona.
with a slight smile.
"Afraid we'll ask him to sing, prole
ably," said another, but no one ques
tioned him, as he was known to be quit
immovable from his own way.
Hut when the last night on board
came, a delegation descended to l.ia
stiiteroom to beg for a song or two, and
discovered that he was not there. They
looked for him in vain, until at lust th
captain, who had evidently kept the
secret as long as he could, said, pointing
in the direction of the engine room:
"1 think you'll find him down there;
that's where bo's gone every evening."
Mnr enouL'h. when the delegation ar
rived at the engine room, they heard tha
sound of a guitar and a voice, and there,
lolling against the wall, was the recreant
tenor, singing his best for the delight of
the stokers, whom he had entertaiued
in this way for more than an hour every

I had as a guest in my residence In

who was very intimate with and much
attached to Mrs. Ueecher Btowe, They
frequently corresponded. She had a
dream iu which Mrs. Btowe seemed to
lie occupied, singularly euough, in dig
ging the ground, and she inquired if
there was any foundation for this. Fronr
the reply she learned that Mrs. Stowa
had been shortly before in Scotland oo
a visit to the Duke of Argyle, and had
btm asked to plant a tree as a memorial
of her visit on leaving. Here it ia proba
ble that, besides the general sympathy
between the parties concerned, there
was some sixscial thought, on Mrs.

of her act, connected in time either with
the actual handling of the spade or with
