Yesterday morning as No. 4 was
crossing the Thirteenth street bridge in
Omaha it ran over a 13-year-old boy
named Mile3 Nields, horribly mangling
him and causing instant death. The boy
was gathering up coal alon- tlie track
for his parents, they being very poor.
His father told him to go for a large
lump lying on the bridge, and :is hs did
so, he met with his fearful death. En
gineer Ilobert Smith of this city was run
ning the engiug and reports the kcene of
the mangled bey as a frightful one.
The funeral services of Henry Scliul
hoff was held this morning at 10 o'clock
from tho Catholic church. The remains
were followed to the graye by many sor
rowing friends. The Bohemian band
furnished .the music. The Liedcskranz
choir sang at the church and grave. At
the church the cofiin was strewn with
floral tributes. The pall-bearers were
Messrs. J. V. Weckbach, A. B. Kuotts.

The Swiss Farmer's Stable.
Whether the Swiss farmer of the low
lands lives in a villacre or unon liis land.
his dwelling and bis stable are usually
under the same roof. Great, roomy and
homely structures they are, those houses
and barns covered by the same steep and
projecting roof of red tiles. Under the
spreading eaves are stored the wagons
and other farm machinerv when out of
use. The end of the building which
shelters the family may bo of wood, with
picturesque balconies and exterior stair
ways. The upper part of the other half,
in which the hay is stored, is often built
of squared pine logs, or clapboarded, with
large and frequent ojienings for ventila
tion of the hay, which is cut and thrown
in fresh and fragrant, almost without any
covering, in the rainy, cloudy cliniate of
But the stable, the chief feature of tho
establishment, which underlies the hay
loft, is invariably built of Btone. Its
solid walls of masonry are two feet in
thickness and plastered within and with
out. Tho heavy oaken stable door fits
into its casings like the cork of a bottle.
The ceiling is as nearly air tight as pos
sible. One or two small openings through
the thick wall admit only a feeble glim
mer of light. The floor is of plank or
stone, with a sunken section through the
middle to catch tho wet and waste.
Heavy mangers along the sides receive
the food. Globe-Democrat.

It is rather odd, considering the age
and dense imputation of France, that that
country should lie compelled to pay boun
ties to prevent an increase in the number
of wolves, yet that is what it has been
doing for many years. In 1882 423 were
killed, in 18S:J, 1,310; in 1884, 1,035; in
1885, 900, and in 1886, 7C0. Tho bounty
now is $40 for killing a wolf that has at
tacked human beings, $30 for one in
young, 20 for a male wolf, and $3 for a
cub. -Chicago Times.
