ing a gasoline lamp used by the corn
poppers. In lighting the lamp for a test
the flame was communicated to the res
crvoir. which leaked, and soon the wholi
front part of the basement was filled w ith
flame. Mr. Sprague, knowing that if he
could get the reservoir out of the base
ment before the explosion occurred the
building might be saved, ran with the
burninjr tank to the first floor. Here it
exploded, setting fire to a few articles of
clothing belonging to the workmen in
the establishment. The fire alarm was
given and the department soon had the
flames out with their chemical apparatus
Mr. Sprague s right nana and arm
were very badly burned but he has the
satisfaction of knowing that lie saved

of the governor for the encampment,

time of his return. The last of the week
at a citizens meeting, committees were
appointed and the necessary arrangements
made-for the coming event. The citizens
of Lincoln took advantage of the gover
nor's absence as an occasion in which to
show him their appreciation of his
services, and the visiting stop with his
friend, Capt. Palmer, of this city, post
poncd his arrival till today, and made it
so that the demonstrations could be com
plete. The following from yesterday's
Lincoln Journal may give an idea of the
importance of the occasion:
"Tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock the
different societies and associations will
meet at their respective headquarters and
proceed to the B. & M. Depot, where the
governor aud his party will be met at 11 :30.
The procession will be formed in the fol
lowing order: Cadet band, cadets, Na
tional guards, govornor's staff, state offi
cers, civic societies and citizens in car
riages. The line of march will be east on Q st.
to 11th, south on 11th to (), east on O to
14th, south on 14th to J, cast on J, to the
capitol. In representative hall Mayor
Sawyer will deliver a short address wliich
will le presented to Gov. Thayer as a
souvenir of the occasion.
The committee of arrangements desire
that all citizens with carriages turn out
and help swell the procession, making
the reception a warm and welcome one."

In the first place, the worn out clothing
and arms nowadays don t amount to
much, though some of the latter are
worth a triiie. Only when there is an
over production dova the government sell
its muskets and rilles, and at the present
time this does not occur frequently.
After the war, however, the market was
Hooded with this truck purchased origin
ally by persons of Hpeculativo propen
sities, who, failing to realize what they
expected, sold it for almost nothing. Some
thought that the leather in the belts and
trappings might be used in harness or
sold to manufacturers of steel for temper
ing, but the latter preferred tan bark.
You will oftentimes see truckmen
wearing regulation army overcoats,
and many people wonder how they
were obtained. Just us I have told you;
these coats were sold to dealers in second
hand garments, who shipped them in
quantities all over the country to smaller
concerns, by whom they were sold at $3
to $5 each.

were unwieldy affair, very long j:nd cum

Method In Composition.
My method in composition, which I en
joy and find practical, is to sit down and
plunge at once into my theme, seizing the
thoughts as they come without regard to
their order or sequence, and it does not
take long to fasten upon paper all I know
or think upon a given subject. I then
take the copy, rearrange the. paragraphs,
correct, interpolate or dash out unessen
tials, and, numbering ray clean sheets,
proceed to copy the article, sending it per
fect, ot practically so, to the editor.
