Heavy Rainfall Near Pender.
Pender, Neb., June C. The heaviest
raia season visited this neighborhood last

Hail at Norfolk.
Norfolk, Nob., June C. Very heavy
showers fell here Mouduy evening.
About 10 o'clock chunks of pretty solid
ice began to' thump upon the roofs of

ing nine inches in circumference. No
wind was stirring and the hail was npt
abundant, so but little damage was done
besides the breaking here and there of a
truck by Lightening.
Neligit, Neb.; June 6. About 12
o'clock Monday night during a terrific
shower, lightning struck the house of N.
D. Jackson and completely wrecked it.
The most marvelous part of the accident
was that none of the family, which con
sisted of Mr. Jackson, his wife anh three
children, were injured. About two hours
later fire was discovered in the ruins but
was extinguished befor? it h.?d burned

before noon today, John B. Hunter, a
hardware merchant here, deliberately
shot and killed II. B. Hull, a farmer liv
ing two miles enst pf tpv;n; The. shooting

amination a verdict of death by a pistol
in the hands of John B. Hunter was ren
dered, Mr. Hnll was a mau generally

A Dead Body Found.
Fremont, Neb., June 6. The body of
an unknown man was found this morn
ing five miles west of Fremont, near the
railroad track, by the crew of a passing
train. Coroner Abbott, of this city, was
summoned and an Inquest was held on
the body at Ames. The coroner s jury,
after weighing all the fhctsand surround
ing circumstances, returned a yerdict to
the effect that the deceased came to nis
death by mans of a blow upon his head,
crushing his skull, but when, where and
how the blow was administered they
were unable to tell. The man was de
cently dressed and evidently not a tramp.
Two letters were found on his person
written at Wahoo, and as nearly as could
be deciphered the signature to the letter
was "Mrs. Ii. McGng Meagher." The
body was brought to Fremont and unlefs
identisled will be buried in the potter's

WisKEit, Neb., June C. The high wat
er of last week swept away the iron
bri.lje over the Elkhorn, opposite Wisner,
and the citizens constructed a temporary
flit boat for the erasing of foot passeng
ers. At 1 o'clock today, while a party
of eight persons were crossing from the
west bank, the boat dipped, and the cur

of Ferdinand Matthis, of this place, and
Franz Marx, a farmer living five mijes

and eldest daughter and eldest son of
Ferdinand Matthis were saved by the
prompt action of some who witnessed the
accident. The Matthis family were re
turning from the wedding of their son,
Frank, which took place last evening, six

citizens to recover the bodies, but the

Warning to the Fair Sex.
The ladles of the stage, perhaps evea
more than their non-professional sisters,
are careful of the preservation of their
charms. Like most of that sex commonly
known as "the sex." they make a corporal
application of "baby powder," etc., after
the bath, and are not innocent of various
powders and cosmetics on other occasions.
Probably many of them go in for less in
nocuous dryers, softeners and beautifiers
after ablution than the "baby powder."
Let them ieware, for they may suddenly
have to sacrifice to Venus on the other
side of the Styx.
Here is a tale for their ears. Fran
Frohn, a German actress of excellent
reputation, died a few days ago in Berlin
in a somewhat extraordinary manner. On
leaving her bath she powdered herself
with some sort of veloutine. Then she
cleaned her nails with the point of a pair
of scissors. She stuck herself on a finger,
and the perfumed powder got into the
slight wound. Instantly the finger be
gan to swell, and the doctors who were
called in were unable to stop the poison
ous progress of the veloutine. The
finger was amputated, and then the hand,
but nothing was of any use. and the un
fortunate woman died in the most hor
rible spasms. New York Herald.
Beaten at IV . Own Game.
"An eye for an eye and a tooth for a
tooth," said the ancient Hebrews, and s
Confederate soldier describes an incident
which occurred during the halt of his
regiment at Fort Clifton:
It occurred to a man picketing the river
bank that It would be amusing to take
careful aim at the man on the other side
doing the same duty for the enemy, fire,
laugh to see the fellow jump and dodge,
and then try again. lie fired, laughed,
dropped his musket to reload, and. while
smiling with satisfaction, heard the
"thud of a bullet and felt an agonizing
pain in his arm.
His musket fell to the ground, and he
walked back to camp with his arm swing
ing heavily at his side.
Tho surgeon soon relieved him of it
altogether. The poor fellow learned a
lesson. The "Yank" had beaten him ay
his own game. Youth's Companion.
Venezuela's Cable Railway.
A cable railway is to be built from
Caracas to La Guaj-ra, Venezuela, under
special concessions from the Venezuelan
srovernment. Caracas is the capital of
Venezuela and La Guayra is the principal

about sixteen miles apart, but are sepa-,

irairttns the German Soldier.
The German olaim that tbeir musketry
instruction is enough better than the French
to make up for the superiorty of the French
tnugaiinc rifle. The lleeres Zeitung declar
ing recently in a confident tone tbat "a fairly
good rLQtf in the bands of marksmen we!',
commanded, all else being equal, la more
effective than a superior rifle can be in slov
enly and too confident hands." No one
will doubt the truth of this who has snen
large bodies of troops at work at the butts,
nor can those who know bow careful is Ger
man military instruction doubt tbat the arm
used by German troops will be made the most
of, so far as untiring drill will suffice to make
up for natural awkwardness. But tbe men
from tbe farming districts, tbe Bauerleute,
especially those from Saxony, Wurtemberg
and Hanover, have big, clumsy fingers, and
those who have seen the time they make over
the simple and heavy apparatus of tbe needle
gun will be slow to believe tbat they can ap
proach tbe French in the skillful use of tbe
mechanism of tbe magasine rifle.
Under the new regulations the German
soldier is taught to fire standing, kneeling,
lying down, behind a parapet, from a shelter
trench, behind a tree, and at a running
target. Attempts are making to teach the
soldier how to Judge distance by sound, that
s to say, by the striking of the first bullet
fired; and knowing tbe adjustment of the
sights and the wind gauges for three ranges,
400, 800 and 1,200 meters, be is expected to be
able to estimate a new range by means of
these known points in his practice firing.
Beading In Rail Cars.
Reading while riding in rail cars or in
omnibuses is to be avoided. The rapid
shaking, trembling or oscillating motion of
tbe cars makes it very difficult to keep tbe
eyes fixed upon tbe words, and is very tire
some. 1 have seen many persons who attrib
uted the failure of their eyes to tbe daily
habit of reading while riding to and from
tbe city. Children should be cautioned
against reading with tbe bead inclined
forward. The stooping position encourages
a rush of blood to tbe bead, and conse
quently the eyes become congested and the
foundations for nearsightedness are laid.

THE ONE WHO STAYS AT HOME
Tbe wheels of the wor;d go round and round.
In the ptewi of a busy throng.
Mora with itn matin melody
And night with Its vexper soup;
The tldra ore out and the titles are la.
Like tbe sea In its ebb and flow,
For there's always one to stay at home
Where there is one to go.
Abroad on the highway's noisy track
There U rush of hurrying feet.
The sparks fly out from the wheels of tUuo
To brighten the bitter and set;
Cut apait from the beaten road and path.
Where the pulse of earth runs slow.
There is always ono to stay at borne
Where there la one to go.
Over arid over good-Dys are said.
In tests that die with the day.
When eyes are wet that cannot forget.
And smiles have faded away;
Smiles that are worn as over a grave
Flowers will blossom and blow; '
For there's always one to stay at home
Where there is one to go.
Always one for the little tasks
Of a day that Is never done;
Always one to sit down at night
And watch with the stars alone.
And he who flgbts on the world hrna-t fVl.l,
With banner nml rjjv t o.i I J.-m...

An Ancient Hurled Forest.
During tho hito violent storms la the
English channel the sea washed through
a high and hard sandbank near St MaTo,
almost fonr meters thick, laying bare a
portion of an ancieut forest, which was
already passing into the condition of coal.
The London Times says "This foivsl at
the beginning of our era covered an ex
tensive tract of tho coast, but with the
sinking of the laid it became submerged
and covered np by the drifting sand Mont
