NATURAL GAS DISCOVERED.
Citizens of Dannebrog, Nebraska
Natural Gas Found.
Damnebrog, Neb. Feb. 28. The
natural gas discovery just made public
has created intense interest. Large
crowds gather every evening to see the
lighted gns. It burns with a steady,
lustrous flame that has every appearance
of real gas. The fact that the gas rises
from the bottom of the creek, led to its
discovery. It has been noticed for several
winter seasons that there are three or four
places where the ice cannot form and the
water is kept in continual motion by the
bubbles that rise from the bottom. A
cuiious schoolboy, having heard his
father talk of gas and oil, one day
touched a lighted match to one of these
bubbles. A fizzing sound and a faint
flame was the result. Subsequently Mr.
C. C. Rasmusten made a test by placing
a tub, bottom side up, over the largest of
the holes and letting it rest for a while
so as to gather a quantity of the gas. He
then made a small hole in the vessel and
applied a lighted match. A sharp ex
plosion hoisted the tub into the air. It
was now determined to make a thorough
investigation, and yesterday at noon a
number of the citizens went to the
place equipped with a tub, through the
bottom of which had been fitted a one
eighth inch tube furnished with a faucet.
The tub was placed in an inverted
position in the water, where the open
place is and held dewn by weights so as
to accumulate and hold the gas. At 7
o'clock in the evening .the people gath
ered to witness the test, and the citizens
of Dannebrog had the gratification of
seeing a part of their town lit up by
natural gas. The flame was regulated by
the faucet all the way from a roaring
blaze leaping two feet in the air to a nice
steady jet four inches high. The exhibi
tion lasted several minutes. Steps are
being taken for a more thorough investi
gation. That there is natural gas in
large quantities, is now firmly believed.
An exhibition on a more extensiyc scale
will be made tomorrow night.
Eminent Whistlers Meet.
Mrs. Alice. J. Shaw, the whistling
prima donna, and her company appeared
at the opera house before a good audi
ence. An additional number was furn
ished by Thomas F. Browne, the local
whistler, who, by the way, Maj. Pond,
Mrs. Shaw's manager, asserted would be
"knocked out." Nothing of tho kind
happened, however, and Mr. Ilrowne's
peculiar style of whistling compared very
favorably with Mrs. Shaw's-
Mrs. Shaw rendered Araiti's familiar
-II Back). and was warmly encored, to
which she gracefully responded. Mr.
Browne received an ovation when he ap
peared. He whistled "The Forest Fairy,"
and responded to an encore with a med
ley of operatic selections, and on being
recalled gave "Kathleen Mavourneen."
Mrs. Shaw's volume of tone is somewhat
superior to Mr. Browne's, nor notes are
peculiarly sweet and birdlike, and at the
same time are qmte penetrating. Ilr
trslis andru3 were alj good, nJ the
expression and execution were excellent.
She has one advantage over Mr. Browne,
and that is her musical tralnin.;. but the
Litter overcomes tliat by lii natural
ability. In the lower register Mr.
Browne excels Mrs. Shaw, particularly
in the flute or piccolo intonation. His
range is about three octaves, and his exe
cution of the high notes was brilliant
He possesses one Btrong feature whicli
Mrs. Shaw lacks, and that is lnspeculiar

A MUsoqrl Girl,
A gentleman out ridhiS O'-i e8
sido the other day witnessed a rare ex
hibition of 6pirit in a young lady well
known la society circles. Shy was out
calling in her father's carriage tehind
one of the fastest private teams in the
city. Her coachman was of the old
French type, which considered itself
greater than the king when driving.his
royal highness. " .
Tlio young Jady prdered the. patxiags
stopped 'at a "certain," " number,"' and.
handed the coachman a card tq present
at the door. He objected to going ojv
such aa undignified, mission. 8he Or

ure and with a dignity that even a
coachman might have envied she or

Professor Nipher's recommendation of
state weather service, as supplementary,
to tho national signal service, is calling
attention and general discussion to it.
That ourservico is incomplete at present
is evident. The chief damage done to
our crops is not by the great storms that
destroy shipping and wreck buildings,
but by storms quite local in origin and
in range. The general service can only
refer to these in general terms ag local
storms "in northern Illinois," or "in
western New York," or "along the gulf ;"
but a state service would have for its
special work to forecast these less ex
tended and localized disturbances and
announce them to the agriculturists..
Professor Nipher reminds us that in 1893
tho telephone will bo publio property,
and can bo used by 6uch a etato service
to communicate with every farm.

A Higli Singer.
The lark ascends until it looks no larger
than a midge, and can with difficulty be
seen by the unaided eye, and yet every
note will be clearly audible to persons
who aro fully half a mile-from the nest
over which the bird utters its 6ong.
Moreover, it never ceases to sing for a
moment, a feat which seems wonderful
to us human beings, who find that a song
of six or seven minutes in length, though
interspersed with rests and pauses, is
more than trying. Even a practiced pub
lic Bpeaker, thougli he can, pause at the
end of each sentence, finds the applause
of tho audienco a very welcome relief.
Moreover, the singer and speaker need to
use no exertion save exercising their
voices. Yet the bird will pour out a con
tinuous song of nearly twenty minutes
in length, and all the time lias to sup
port itself in the air by tho constant use
of its wings. The Naturalist.
Old Put. Outdone.
Mr. Crumpton, who lives in tho Arkan
sas flats, seven miles south of Quanal,
had an inkling that something was going
wrong around his place, and detennined
to seek out the trespasser. Going a short
distance from his house, he entered a
cave, and in tho darkness was confronted
with a pair of fierce, glaring eyes and
rumbling growls. Whipping out his re
volver ho shot at his mark, when a
bcream was uttered and suddenly an
enormojis panther sprang upon hjin,
knocking him some feet backward, when
a hand to hand fight ensued. After a
fierce struggle and being violently
scratched' in the faco, Mr. C. finally suc
ceeded in- firing the fatal shot which
etretched his game out. The animal was
dragged from the cave and measured
over nino feet. Carter Eagle.
-Law as n Judge Defines at.
An interesting case of trial for. atr
tempted bigamy was .summarily disposed
of by Judge Ridley in tho criminal court.
Charles Ready is a negro. Upon- an nir
dictment of bigamy he was. brought into
court the other day to answer ft charge
of attempting to commit bigamy by
using a bogus license. The facts were
fully established, but tho judge gave a
verdict of not guilty. "There can be no
bigamy or attempt at bigamy," he said,
"unless the license is genuine." He
therefore dismissed the -case. Ready
was held, ia custody, however, as "it is
understood he has actually married sev
eral women and is 6till subject to indict
ment for bigamy. Nashville Arnerican.

CLOTH MADE FROM WOOD.
Method of Reducing the Hoards to a State
of Isolated Flbem
Mitscherlich has npj!iJ C.:C L";;ulplii-s
process for reducing wood to the pro
duction of a fiber from wood which can
Thin boards or laths free from knots,
but of any desired width, are cut into
strips in the direction parallel with the
grain, and are then boiled in a b"' r con
taining a solution of sulphurous acid or
bisulphite. This boiling effects disinte
gration without requiring that the strips
of boards Khali be reduced to very small
pieces. After boiling the wood, it is
dried in the open air or in specially con
structed drying rooms. By thus drying
the product, the fiber, which is originally
very weak and tends to break at the
slightest 6train, becomes comparatively
strong and does not resume it3 very
breakable condition on the addition of
water. The operations are carried out as
The damp masses on the frame are
transferred to a traveling endless cloth,
which leads them t ft pair of rollers,
which may be plain or provided with
corrugations in the direction of their
length, tho ribs of the one roller be
ing made to gear into tho re
cesses of the other one, where
by they effect ft simultaneous strong
bending and squeezing of the masses.
The cutting of the material in passing
through the corrugated rollers is
avoided by causing the endless cloth
to pass over the lower roller and
by placing a canvas covering around
the upper roller. The pressed masses
fall from these rollers on to a second
endless cloth, which conveys theru
to a second pair of rollers, from which
they are convoyed to a third pair, and so
on, they being preferably pressed in this
way six times. By continued treat
ment of tho wood the fibers become at
length 60 pliable and Isolated from each
other that they can be employed directly
for coarse filaments,
For obtaining a perfect isolation of the
fibers, however, without material de
terioration, these operations alone are
not suitable, and their special purpose is
to loosen tho fibers in the transverse di
rection, 60 that In the following opera
tion a thin, long fiber may be obtained.
For this purpose the boiled and pressed
masses are completely dried. After dry
ing they are combed in the ' direction
parallel with the fibers by means of de
vices provided with pins or teeth, in a
manner similar to the operations for
combing flax, cotton, etc., but with the
difference that tho pins or teeth of the
apparatus must be made very 6trong.
The separation of the extractable matter
from tho fiber produced by boiling the
guins and soluble organic matter can be
effected at any time. It is, however,
preferably effected after the fiber has
been spun into threads, etc. Scientific
