Norfolk, Neb., April 30. The heavy
and much needed raiu of Thursday night
was succeeded by a cold wave which en.

The storm, with some intermissions, his
continued, and this morning it is snow

region will hope for good crops again
this season. .
An Unprecedented Flood-
Mckogee, I. T., April SO. Heavy
rains from Eufuula south to Texas have
flooded the whole country north and
south of the Canadian river, which is
rising at the rate of G inches per hour.
It is still raining,
Tho Missouri, Kansas and Texas Rail
way, south of Atoka, is under water for
six or eight miles, and several miles of
tr ick wahed out.
IJcggy Creek has overflowed its banks
and bauk'.'d water over much of the
Immense drifts of dead wood threaten
the Missouri, Kansas aud Texas bridges
on all it-; creek within 100 mihs north
of Dcnismi. The passenger train that
went south last night returned from
Atoka empty. The passenger train that
went south tlji morning returned at 10
o'clock to night, bringing all the passen
ger?, who will be sent to Texas over
somu other road.
All the streams are terribly swollen,
anil the rain continuing, there is no possibility-
that trains can b got through
for sevenal days.
Tin; bridge on South Boggy Creek is
wa-h'.-d away. Farms aro flooded and
growing crops destroyed. It is impossi
ble now to es(.iinato the damage.
Forty families at Lehigh, ten miles
west of Atoka, have been compelled to
abandon their h;?!??- lives are lost
so far as known.
A Striker Murdered-
Gai.esburg, III., April 29. The only
thing talked of here to-night is the kill
ng of Herbert Newell and the danger
ous wounding of Gccrgc Cable, both
"Q" flrtia-n. The shooting occurred
last night close to Hedberg's house. The
murderer is in the county jail, to guard
which extra precautions have been taken.
While the strikers say they intend to let
the law take its coursu, there is a deep
under curront of feeling that may pro
duce violence. Iledberg claims he was
assaulted by Newell and Cable when oa
his way home, ne drew his revolver
and fired twice. The first ball passed
through Newsll's heart and the second
struck Cablo in the center of the fore
head, glancing around the skull and is
suing behind the tar.
There was but one eye witness the
wife of on of the new engineers. She
partly corroborates Hedberg's story.
There is considerable testimony against
Iledberg to be develaped. It will be
sworn that while in a pool room a short
time before the shooting he made the
threat he would shoot any man who fol
lowed him. It is alleged that Newell
and Cable were on the way to Alderman
Ericksou'a house to ask him to come to a
caucus, and that they did not fpllow
Iledberg or did not start a row with hiip.
Newell was one of the oldest engineers
on the Burlington and leaves a" family.
Morbidly Melancholy Tone.
Every editor who has to deal with
purely literary contributions will lx'ar
witness that nine-tenths of the verses
offered by young writers nowadays are
of this morbidly melancholy class. To
look over the manuscripts in a single
morning's mail would lead one to sup
Iose a sort of moral pestilence had
jumjxd the quarantine the night before
and descended upon America, depleting
its victims lives of all that was fresh,
youmtui, nojietui, anu pessimizing mem,
as it were, Ijcyond cure. It is Ach! Ach!
Ach lover and over again, every trans
lator giving his own version and applica
tion. I'oenis and stories relating to
Christmas and Thanksgiving with a true
ring of gladness and good cheer in them
are rare; while autumn leaves, par
ticularly tho "sear" variety, are as popu
lar mediums for the transmission of woes
as were the Sibyls of old.
There is real trouble enough in tho
world, a pitiful God knows. Let us have
words of symjuithy, of grave, bweet coun
sel in our sorrow, you pen wielders
whom we admit to our inmost selves at
times when no living presence could be
Ijorne. Tell ns, if you will, of your own
sad experiences, and how you found con
Eolation in them; remind us. and weshall
be grateful, that life is a solemn, earnest
thing, by no means to be laughed at or
lightly tripped through ; but do not call
upon ns to shudder over vaguely impend
ing terrors; do not scrape from your
palette the living colors of crimson petal,
and golden maple bough, and the chang
ing sheen of the rainbow, bidding us sol
ace ourselves with mist and ashes of
roses. It is the feet of him that bringeth
good tidings that are beautiful upon tho
mountains; he who publisheth peace in
the true benefactor of his fellow men.
Willis Boyd Allen in The Century.
Customs of the Albanians.
Among the Albanians exist bitter feuds
that have been handed down from gener
ation to generation, and when men meet
of those two families there is bound to be a
fight that will last until one or the other
is dead or disabled, and these feuds often
have their rise in the quarrels of littla
children, or vvomen over the water foun
tain. They have a code of unwritten
laws, which govern their intercourse
with each other when enemies, and they
never deviate under any provocation. If
their worst enemy goes into a tavern,
cabaret or cafOt and sita down beside an
other man, they regard him as under tho
protection of that man, and in their eyes
it would be making him commit an un
pardonable breach of hospitality to attack
one under his protection. Also, if they hap
pen by any means to touch the hand of the
man they wish to kill he is henceforth a
friend instead of an enemy, and if ever
you or yours have eaten in company with
an enemy he is obliged to forget his,
enmity and be a friend thenceforward,
and being friends among the Albanians
means being more than brothers.
An Albanian will never 6tab a man in
the back nor shoot from an ambush. If
he cannot fight fair and square, ha
doesn't want to fight. n.o will not leave
a sick or sulfermg animal by the road
side ; he will pick up a crust of bread
wherever he sees it, and pray for the
wicked person who made light of such a
porfect gift, and placing it up on some
high place ho will deal tenderly with all
weaker than he; he will not drink water
standing up, for fear of appearing to
despise that great blessing, and ho will
court a maiden as love lorn as any pi Let
man, in spite of his warlike nature.
Olive Harper in Courier-Journal.
Moral Teaching In School,
Qne very good plan is something like
the following: From two to four pupils
are selected, and it is made the duty of
each to look up and copy a short mopa
sentiment or maxim to be read at the
opening of the school in the morning.
Another set is selected to present similar
maxims the next day, and in this way
all the pupils are selected in turn. When
the pupil has read or repeated his senti
ment to the school It is illustrated, or.
commented upon by the teacher till the
meaning is not 6nly clear but well im
pressed. After the reading of the centi-
ments they are copied on the black boarJ,
where they remain, all day, an4 each,
pupil iii the room copies them into a
blank book. After the first day the
teacher calls upon volunteers to repeat
the sentiments given on preceding days.
Five or 6ix sentiments may be called up
n review each day,
Some pupils, not much accustomed to
general reading, may find it difficult to
look up new sentiments; but let it bo
understood that if a new one cannot be
found an old one will be accepted. Under
judicious management there will be no
trouble here. Children do not hk? to h?
parrots, repeating fhe words of their
mates; and when review sentiments are
presented they will be quite sure to be
such as deserve repetition. Mary E.
