fires which have resulted seriously. Sey

department were not called out which
might have resulted in total loss, but for
the prompt action on the part of neigh
bors. Almost invariably the fires haye
originated from defective flues. It seems
lo us that the proper thing for the may

point a fire warden, alie active man
who would look into these matters close

prompt action in all such cases.
J. L. Babington has invented n
contrivance to measure and roll carpet.
It consists of a cylander with necessary
rollers attached, and a measure graph
which registers the number of yards to a
fractional unit. Eighty yards of carpet
can be measured and rolled in a ti-ht
and compact form in ten minures. It is
a great labor saving invention, doing the
work in a half day that formerly took
one week to accomplish. We called at
Mr. Dovey's store this morning and
found they had the machine in operation
measuring his carpets which he is invoic
ing. It was working like a charm

The A O. U. W Social-
The members of the A. O. W. assembl
ed at half past eight o'lock last night in
the K. of P. hall. It was one of the larg
est gatherings in attendence ever present
on such an occasion in this city.
Scattered through the epacious K. of
P. halls .were little tables surrounded by
from four to six ladies and gentle
men who enjoyed themselves playin
euchre, whist, niuggin? and other gators
while others were engaged in lively con
versation. The entertainment was inter
spersed by select songs from the Glee
club which were as usual well received
Some choice selections were rendered,
both yocal and instrumrntal. by different
ladies. At about 10:30 or 11 o'clock an
elegant repast was seryed to all present, the
same having been preparedand brought to
the hall by the wives and friends of the
members of the A. O. U. W. The order
is in an excellent condition and its future
prospect is very flattering.
Lives In Omaha.
V ery lew people Know it, out tne man
who first invented and patented the rotary
snow-plow, now in use on several western
railroads, lives in Omaha. At present he
is engaged in the festive and quite lucra
tive pastime of extracting aching teeth,
and his name is Iloughawout. In March,
1881, he applied for a patent on his in
vention and it was given to him on the
0th of June following. It is claimed by
the doctor that he not only patented the
invention, but every pnneiple connected
with it. As the plow now in use was not
patented until 1884, litigation for in
friugment is very liable to develope be
fore long. Bee.

Candles and Footlights. The

The audience was a small one that
greeted Mr. Miln, the lecturer, last night
at Rock wood hall. However, he seemed
in excellent humor, and began by saying,
"the crowd, though small, is a social
one." He reviewed the drama, theatres
and museums in a graphic manner, giv
ing the early history and influences of
the drama in the ancient cities of Greece.
He also related the condition of the
church, stage and drama at the present
time, claiming they should be in close
connection with each other. His lecture,
throughout, was in defense of tin theatre
and its influences, as compared with that
of the church. Mr. Miln is a polished
speaker, though not au orator. His at
tainments as an actor are much greater
than his accomplishments as a speaker.
He is now, and has been through the
winter, taking a rest, but expects to leave
for Europe in about one month, where
he goes with the intention of playing in
the provinces, visiting France studying the
character of Napoleon, his pictures, the
conditions under which he labored, the
surroundings, also the dress and manner?
of the time of the first emperor of France,
with a view to presenting a play founded
on the career of that personage. When
Mr. Miln will produce the piece he does
not know, and he has not yet determined
as to whether the temper of the people
of England will w&rrant the production
of the play in that country.
Hard on the. Drugstores
Des Moihes, Iowa, Jan. 27. Mr. Cus
ter, chairman of the Committee on the
Suppression of Intemperance, and a very
radical prohibitionist, introduced in the
House yesterday, the bill which the pro
hibitionists want. It provides for doing
away with all sale of liquor by drug
stores or other dealers, and makes the
county auditor the sole agent and super
intendent to all sales, for legitimate pur
poses. It provides that he shall have
four assistants or sub-agents in eacl
county, who shall be the legalized deal
ers. There shall be a system of stamps
for selling each package, which he shall
obtain from the state auditor, and when
ever a package of liquor is used the
stamps shall be cancelled tne same as
revenue stamps on cigar boxes now are
The State Temperance Alliance anc
Women's Christian Temperance Union
are understood to be favoring some such
bill as this which wil have all liquor
selling, for purposes not forbidden by
law, done by legal agents, rather than by
irresponsible parties, as at present.
