D. T. Macale&ter, of Creston, Iowa,
Assaulted By a Brother
Omaha, Neb., June 4. Alxut 2 o'clock
this Diornin-i a disturbance was heard
near the Union Pacific crossing on Tenth
street, and the officer on the beat hurry
ing to the place found a man lying on
the ground in an unconctous condition,
with a severe cut over tho left eye. He
was tacn to the central station in the
latrol wagon,and on regainingjeonscious
ucss stated that his name was I). T. Ma
calestur, and that his litme was in Cres
ton, Iowa. He arrived in Omaha from
Plattsinuth last night, and at the depot
met Eph Peel, an engineer and an old
friend, and was invited by him to spend
the night with him. In crossing the rail
road track they met three men, who were
unknown to Macalesttr but were ac
quainted with Peel, and after going a
short distance. Peel, without warning,
drew a billy and knocked him down,
after which the others jumped onto him.
He claims that ho was robbed f $6.
Macalester says lie is a scab engineer, but
that Peel is also one, and that he cannot
account for the assault. It is probable
that he will lose the sight of the injured
Entombed by a Cave-In.
Butte, Mont, June 4. Yesterday, at
a few minutes to 12 o'clock, noon.a large
cave occurred in the St. Lawrence mine,,
commencing at the 500 foot level, en the
hanging wall and letting in tho mountain
clean up to tke 200 post, level. Thirty-
five men had come out at JO o'clock on
account of the squeeze and the balance
of the men came out a few minutes be
fore the cars. It was found when tha
roll was called that four men were miss
ing, vial Pit Hanington, Con Murphy,
and two men who had just commenced
to work. The men are . now at work
from the Anaconda mine and going to
the relief of (he entombed miners. The
latest from the mine is that two of them
have given signals with a hammer on the
walls," which are heard by those dig
ging through the cave-in. Whether they
can rescue them within twenty-four hours
is hard to say.
The St. Lawrence is one. of the largest
copper mines in this city, and employs
Charged With Assaulting a Daugh
Oakland, Neb., June 4. Quite a little
excitement prevails in Oakland over the
arrest of Bill Johnson last night for as
sault with intent to commit rape upon
his daughter, about 17 years old. The
daughter swore out a warrant alleging
that the assault was made on or about
the 25th day af December, 18S7. Ed
Renard went on his bond for $750 fur
his appearance tomorrow tefore the
county judge. Johnson is a Swede, and
lives ona mile north of town. He is a
well-to-do farmer, and has a wife and
several children. It i3 known that the
domestic relations of the family of late
have not been very pleasant, owing to
Johnson being addicted to strong drink.
Developments are awaited with great
interest. The relatives of the. family are
Buried the Man He Murdered.
Htannis. Neb., June 4. On Monday,
May 28, hear Cottonwood Lake, Cherry
county, thirty miles northeast of here,
occurred one of the most cold-blooded
inu'ders that eyer happened in northwest
Nebraska. JVcd Jlobinson, a dosperade
of local note, went to the house of a man
by the name of A. Sheldon and shot him
dead. After the man was dead he shot
hiui again while he lay on the floor. The
nest iiirip; ue went and got a man by
the name of .Sieve Carver, and together
they buried him. The killing ??as done
in a sparsely settled neighborhood and
was not found out by the authorities un
til today, Tb Sheriff of Cherry county
is now in pursuit of the murderer. He
is reported to be still in the neighbor
hood. The murdered man leayes a wife
and seven children.
Valextixe, Neb., June 4. Word has

A Child Without a Name.
"It happened this way," continued
Plnnkett. "There never was but one lo
comotive made In Georgia up to the time
that on was made in Atlanta during the
war. 1 hey needed engines mlcrhty bad
then, and they went to work In the shops
at Atlanta and turned out as good er look
ing little locomotive as I ever seed, and
they named It 'Sunshine,' and the railroad
men took on over It er heap and every
engineer wanted it for his.
"lhings was hustling outen Atlanta,
for old Sherman was doing Bomo of his
winging erround, and it was feared he'd
get the control of the Macon and Western
then, and this little engine was erbont to
be shut off, no the engineer he fired up
and folks piled onto It and out she started
for Macon. She was er sailing er long aa
fast as ever an engine run them days,
when, before you could wink your eye, she
busted. That was the last of 'Sunshine,'
and it was the last of er heap of folks, but
it was war times and fifteen or twenty
folks killed wasn't noticed worth talking
erbout, bat In the wreck among the dead
and wounded was found a little baby that
nobody has ever claimed, and the little
thing was not scratched by the wreck, but
just set there in er little place and laughed
and crowed 'Alam. mam, mam, ana we
ksowed by that it was the little child of
some poor refugeeing woman. They took
rood care of the little thlncr, and it lived
eight months after that, and the strange
thin? Is that It never heard an eneine nor
seed er car but what it would say them
same words over: 'Mam, mam, mam.
But it's over yonder, with 'Child Without
Name' On its tombstone, and that ends
It In this world, but it teaches tne lesson
that war's er bad, bad thing." Atlanta
Rat of the Sewers.
Mr. Webb, who has the largest fund of
information as to the interior of sewers of
any living man, tells some interesting
facts about rats, some of which be esti
mates as being about two feet long and
weiffhlni? about eight or ten pounds. I he
pure blooded thoroughbred stock of sewer
rats are a distinct species, llouso and
ground rats are smaller, leaner, sleeker,
longer faced and loss powerful; thoy run
lato the sewers through breaks, but re
turn to their domiciles in the nouses.
Sewer rats have nests in nooks and cor
ners of dry, abandoned or unused walls;
their claws are long and have the strength
of steel hooks, which they somewhat re
semble. They can easily displace a brick
anywhere where the mortar or cement is
old or more or less crumbling. Usually
they seek the old and decayed sewers,
tear their way through and burrow ana
establish their "family residences" at
their own sweet will, and do their mar
keting wherever it may be convenient and
attractive for them.
They are naturally suspicious, coy and
unsocial, although never belligerent un
less cornered, in which case they will at
tack ferociously and bite and claw vi
ciously. When the men are atjwork in the
sewers the rats are quite tame, and one
workman had the "knack" of calling them
to him by a peculiar humming or singsong
noise, which they seemed to be fascinated
by, and would come almost near enough
to be handled- New York Star.
City Roofs as Health Resorts.
The proposition, ably discussed in
Science, to utilize city roofs as health re
sorts Is a suggestion deserving of careful
and practical consideration. Why may
this idea not be conjoined with the plan
of having roof gardens? There is no rea
son why roofs, in large and crowded
cities, may not be so built as to be con
verted into flower, and even vegetable,
gardens. There axe not a few roofs so
used already. The amount of oxygen
and ozone thus liberated, and of carbon
gases utilized and substracted from tho
air, would be enormous. If sower gases
are to be carried to the roofs, and so dis
seminated Into the air, the adoption of
the garden system would bo all the more
desirable. Certainly the degeneration
and devitalization attendant on living in
crowded tenement houses . must in some
way be counteracted. Nothing could be
more grateful to a sick or puny child than
the fresh air and flowers that such a sys
tem as suggested might furnish. Globe
Pemocrsi. Inwardness of Book Wotlce.
In nine cases out of ten the critical
notices are carefully measured to accord
with the size of the advertisement handed
in at the business office. If a publisher
advertises, his books . receive notice;
twenty lines secure a good review, forty a
better one. If a play is ever so bad, tho
State critic can find much good La it if he
oks through the greenback lorgnette
furnished by the business office of the
mighty organ of public opinion by which
he is employed. Tho book reviewer's Judg
ment Is warped in the same way; his
favor Is bought at the cashier'B desk.
K The Battle of Vterloo.
A foolish woman in society one asked the
Duke of Wellington to give her on account
of the battle of Waterloo. "Oh," replied he,
Kit very easily done. We pummeled them,

Mitford said that Creevy went to the duke
after his return to JJrussek from Waterloo to
congratulate hua. Tho duke rejected con
gratulation and said, "It was a dreadful
business, SJ.000 men destroyed, and a d
near thing." When the duke was sitting to
Phillips the latter asked hha, "Was not your

THE PLUCKY LITTLE CONFEDERATE
DAILY PUBLISHED IN VICKSBURG.
Printed on Wall Paper When the Snpply
of White Paper Was Exhausted A Plea
for. Mule Meat 'Hopeful to the I-uhU
Kxchanginc; for Northern Papers.
"The VickBburg Daily Citizen" was tho
pretentious title of a little sheet isstiM
in the besieged city, never much for iXw,
but always as full of light as a littlo
onion is of pungency. When white paer
ran out. The Citizen appeared on the whito
sido of wall paper. When succeases wcro
gained, it glorified them; when nouocoul.l
be heard of it invented some, and just as
the situation grew darker ill Vicksburg tho
tone of the little daily grew more defiant ami
hopeful. It is said that there aro now but
two complete files of this paper in existence,
and most appropriately one is owned by a
Federal and tho other by a Confederate
officer, both ejurvivors of the siege. Toward
tho last the paper got out only semi
weekly, and this artlcJo in ono of tin
issues was rend in the Federal Luca Hiiuui
two hours after it was issued:
"Wo aro indebted to Maj. Gillespiofor a
steak of Confederate bcpf alias mulo meat.
We have tried it and can assure our frion.Is
that they need have no scruples ot eating the
meat. It is sweet and tender, nud so lt ng as
we have a inulo left, we are satisfied our
soldiers will bo content to subsist on it."
This paper was exchanged for northern
papers daily on tho piekot lines of tho two
armies. In every besieged city since history
bejjan there has been a popular cry that
some citizens had concealed stores of food;
and so we find this in The Citr.en:
"We are satisfied that many people have
breadstuff's secreted, and that they aro doling
it out at most exorbitant price It is
char god that some are selling flour at f a
pound; corn $10, and molasses $10. If this is
proved, let tho brand be placed on their
brow, that humanity may scorn and shun
them as they would the portals of hell"
Pretty soon after things began to look blue
in Vicksburg; so the editor announced that
he had received late New York, Richmond
and Cattanooga news, and sums it up thus
A HOPEFUT, VIEW.
"Today the mongrel administration of
Lincoln is like Japhet in search of a Father,
for their Old Aba has departed to parts un
known. Wo lay before our renders an ac
count of tho brilliant onslaught (iu Mary
land) upon the Lincoln hordes, and show,
even from their own records, how the gal
lant boys of our cavalry have flashed their
swords to the Lilt with the ranting foes and
how each musket of our infantry has told
its fatal leaden tale. Success and glory to
our arms. God and right aro with us."
When the fatal day came tho publisher
had thi3 article set for the next issue: "
"On dit: That the great Ulysses Gen
eralissimo, surnamed Grant, has ex
pressed his intention of dining in Vicksburg
on Saturday next, and celebrating tho 4th of
July by a grand dinner, etc. When asked if
he would invite Joe Johnston to join hiiu he
said, 'No, for fear thero would bo a row at
the table.' Ulysses must get into tho city
before he dines in it. Tho way to cook a
rabbit is 'first catch your hare,' etc."
That number, however, was noi issued by
tho publisher. It so happened that th first
Federals to reach the center of tho cify wero
printers. They took possessioa of tLe com
pleted "forms," "lifted" the last article in
the page, inserted the following and struck
off several copies:
Tu5y i. 1SC3.
Two days brinj about great changes. Tho

Gen. Grant has "caught tho rabbit." Ilo iiua
arrived iu Vicksburg and he did bring his dinasT

last time it appears on wall pr.per. No mora will
it ealosiz'J the luxury of mule meat and f ricaK;cd
kitten nre southern warriors to such diet never
more. Except this note this issua is from th
typc3 just as we found thero. It will bs valuable

Cave Life in VicUsljnirjf.
During the long and terrible siege f Vicks
burg, women, children and families remained
within the city. As the bombardment grew
hotter and hotter, there was no longer safety
for them in the houses. They burrowed
caves in tho hillsides, and lived there, prairio
dog fashion, to avoid the Mini balls and
bursting shells that constantly swept tha
There were often heartrending scenes, in
spite of tho precaution of living iu caves. A
lady who passed through tho siege writes:
"Sitting in the cave one evening, I heard
the most heartrending screams aud moans.
A mother had taken a child into a cave about
a hundred 3ards from us. Saving laid it
upon it3 little bed, as tha poor woman be
lieved, in safety, she took her seat near tha
entrance of the cave. A mortar shell came
rushing through tha air, entering th earth
above tha sleeping child, cutting through
into tha cava OU1 most horrible sighs to
the mother, crushing in the upper part of tho
littlo sleeping head, and taking away tho
young innocent life without a word or loo!;
of passing iovo to ba treasured in tkq
"I sat near the square in tha moonlight,
silent and sorrowful, hearing tho moans of a
mother for her dead child, the child that a
few moments since lived to caress, and tq
love, speaking tha tender words that eadsap
so much the tie of mother and child."
What Is Dirt, Any Way?
A good ash floor, properly laid, will cost
less in its fifty years' of wear than tha car
pets that are bought to cover a cheaper floor.
But I suspect the carpet item in this estimato
must be that of health. In our old carpets,
in spite of good housekeeping, lark tb? girm3
of the diafiios that from tini to time readai
the house so sad and homeless.
What is this dirt any way? The queerest
stuff imaginable. Should you burn It in tha
passage, its candescence would show with tb
spectroscope lines indicating ahr.oEt all knowu
th9 wear from tho nails in your shoes. Thi i
carbou lines would come from the coal dust, j
and the yellow salt lines would only show j
that chlorido of sodium is always praeht '
-everywhere. IHltriere you have old wall"'
papers or old carpets, you can be sure that
souio of this dost is several generations old : :
and if there be not some bacteria, of a bad ;
tort, and germs of old, fevers with all the i
rest. I shall be surprised, Globe-Democrat.
