Gkerly Center, Nb., March 2. II.
Q. James appeared before Judge Swain
at the appointed hour today and stood
trial for the criminal libel suit brought
against him by the wire fence men. The
result was the- discharge of the defendant
amid the approving shouts of the
Mad Dg Scare
Oxford. Neb., March 1. Concider
able excitement was created today when
dog belonging to Jacob Struve was
se:zed with hydrophobia. It was
promptly dispatched before biting any
persons or animals. This is the second
or third time Oxford has recently been
stirred up over a mad dog scti-Q, and the
authorities say that all the dos must
either go or be muzzled, consequently a
lively war of extermination of the canine
tribe is in progress.
A Wind Mill Manufactory.
Columbus, Neb., March 2. At a citi
zens meeting last evening it was decided
to give a bonus of $3,000 and about
three acres of land to Dean & Wo r ley,
who have incorporated as the Qilt Edge
Manufacturing corapany, for the purpose
of manufacturing wind mills. The
bonus was raised today, and work on the
factory will be begun at once. Fifteen
thousand dollars will be invested in
buildings and machinery to start with.
They expect to have the facorr, in run

by C. D. Taylor's jewelry store. The

LIncoln, Neb., March 2 The Grace
Methodist church trouble is growing
apace. It is gjyen out tad.ay that speci
fic charges have been made out against
Pastor Minehart, and that they are now
in the hands of Presiding Elder Miller,
and will be acted upon in a few days,
It is probable that the church trial will
be on the sensational order. It is under
stood that the charges as preferred, ac
cuse Minehart with teaching doctrines
from the pulpit not in conformity with
the doctrines of the church; that he has
been in the habit of treating members. of
the charge in a hars.h and disrespectful
manner, not only in a social way, but in
his use of language from the pulpit.
The charges will be presented to Mine
hart tomorrow by the presiding elder who
holds the regular quarterly meeting at
the church at that time. It is alio said
that the accused will be given two weeks
to secure council, prepare his answer and
get ready for the trial.
The Prince of Coolarln.
7o are told of McDermot, known as
the IMnce of Coolavin, who, belonged Eq
one of the principal Connaught families,
that his income in 177(1 barely amounted,
to 100 a year, yet ho never suffered Wa
children to sit down In his presence.
Lady Morgan adds that his daughter-in-Jaw
alone was permitted to rat at his
table; even lus wife was not accorded this
privilege, as. though well born, she was
not of royal blood. When Lord Kings
'oorough, Mr. Ponsonby, Mr. O'Hara, Mr.
Sanford, and others, all men of position,
came to 6ee him lie only took notice of
tho two last named, whom he thus ad
dressed: "O'Hara. you are welcome!
Sanford, I am glad to see your mother's

liens Versa Cows.
A few miles from the city of London
resides a gentleman and his good wife,
owning and tilling fifty acres of land.
The gentleman has always bad great
faith in his cows paying well, but
thought the hens a bill of expense. The
lady, on the other hand, contended that
the hens paid better than the cows. Ac
cordingly one 6pring.ehe determined to
keep books for one season and ascertain
tho respective merits of both. She cred
ited the lions with all eggs laid, and in
teresting indeed was the contest as the
time drew nigh for receiving the check
from the cheese factory. But it came at
last, and behold, tho hens were ahead,
and so it continued throughout tho sea
son. One hundred I10113 to three cows, and
as they ltad decided in the spring that it
would cost about the same to keep each,
the gentleman was forced to yield the
ooint and admit that tho bens were most
profitable; and if others would keep an
xac-t account they would be surprised
:t the result, but most farmers do not
,ive their hens credit for anything ex
cept what eggs are taken to market. It
s not at all difficult to make hens pay
1 per bead per annum if properly cared
.'or. The writer on one occasion made
1 per head on five dark Brahma hens
ifter laying al tsxpunsos. This, it will
e understood, was per egga und meal
done, not for breeding stock, as half a
lollar was the highest price realized for

Cannonading for Ttain.
A rather peculiar petition, &4 pre
icnted to tho Kansas housJ'by Mr. Sher
man, of Hooka county. It was from 132
citizens of that county. They want the
legislature to make an appropriation for
tho purpose of exjerimentinjr in a mat
ter of securing rainfall by
means of cannonading. The petition was
as follows: "Vv'e, your petitioners, many
of us veterans of the late war, knowing
from experience that heavy rainfalls fol
lowed each battle or heavy cannonading,
and believing that ths f ici indjeaies that
man may PfCjduce. -'amfal by artificial
perturbation' of the atmosphere whe.u
otherwise It would not be experienced,
and believing it would bo wise for the
state of Kansas to make a reasonable ex
periment in the matter of attempting to
produce artificial rainfall, would most
respectfully ask you tot make an appro
priation, out pf tho treasury for tho pur
pose of such experiments either by can
nonading or otherwise as may be deemed
best,"Kansaa eity Star.
A Queer Statue of Queen Victoria.
Everybody knows that tho Princess
Louise is not a mere amateur dabbler,
but a real artist in sculpture, and the
statue of the queen on which she is en
gaged, and which is to be erected in
Kensington Gardens, between the palace
and the round pond, will certainly be as
daring in design as it will be novel. It
is intended to represent her majesty as
she appeared on tho memorable morning
in June, 1837, when it was announced to
her that6he was queen of England. It
will be remembered Sir George llayter's
picture has commemorated it that upon
tho occasion the Princess Victoria ap
peared in the scantiest of attire a mere
robe de nuit, with a shawl hastily flung
over it. Rumor has it that the Princess.
Louise is succeeding in giving to this
decidedly unconventional attire the ap
pearance of quite classical drapery,
Secret Hiding 1 "laces.
One of the most interesting features of
our country houses is the secret hiding
place. This generally has been contrived
with much architectural skill, and in
days gone by baffled discovery from the
most observant and experienced eye. In
certain cases it would appear that, for
some reason or other, the hiding place
has been specially kept a secret among
members of the family. Thus, in tli
north of England, may be mentioned
Netherhall, near Mary port, CumberLnd,
the seat of the old family of Senhouse.
In this time honored mansion there is
said to be a real secret chamber, its exact
position being only known to two persons
the heir-in-law and the family solicitor.
According to the popular tradition the
secret of the hidden room has never been
revealed to more than two living persons
at a time! This mysterious room has no
window, und, despite every endeavor to
discover it, has, it is said, defied the in
genuity of every visitor staying in the
house. With this secret chamber may
be compared the one at Glamis, the lat
ter possessing a window, but which haj
not led to the identification of the my
terioua room. Liverpool Courier.

IStrevt Cars In the !.;. o. "iico.
Whilo the principal cities of this coun
try are no doubt very favorable places
for street mil way investors, yet in pro
portion to their number and wealth the
people of tho City of Mexico contribute
more, perhaps, to the support of their
horse cars than thoso of any other city.
Nobody seems to walk there who can'
scrapo together enough to ride. Mules
are the motive power, and these thin
beasts gallop along at a reckless pace
under constant lashing from their driver.
There are first, second and third class
cars, which vary in price from a real
(about 12 cents) down to 2 cents. The
first class coaches are about as comfort
able as tho Broadway cars of New York.
The second class cars havo small win
dows near the roof without glass, a
bench running lengthwise along either
wall, and another without a back down
the center. Third class cars carry freight
and Indians indiscriminately. One road,
which extends far out of tho city to the
principal cemetery, runs funeral cars
draped in mourning, and does a big bus
iness in funerals.
As all tho lines meet at the principal
square of the city, tho mournirvg poaches
can be switched olf to any part of tho
town. At tho cemetery they are 6ide
tracked to await tho return of tho fune
ral party. Street Railway Journal.

George Stephenson, the great railway
pioneer, did not know his alphabet until
ho was IS years of age; byt he no sooner
became convinced of tho, necessity of
learning to read in order to get on in the
world than he set about it with all the
energy he possessed, and went to school
(though he made rather a big schoolboy)
while he was working twelve hours a
day at very laborious work. licside
learning to read "-"id write and acquir

Hand Spinning antl Tfoavin;.
First of rJI, to answer the question.
Does it pay? which is the average Eng
lishmen's first question. I want my pro
ject to be, as all honest schemes ought to
be, self supporting; 60 I am glad to be
able to reply that it does pay, even in the
hard and fast commercial sense. I had
been mindful of a maxim of Mr. How
ells in one of hij books, "Before you learn
to do a thing, pray bo sure people want
it." I find people do want tho Langdale
linen, for without advertising or public
ity I have orders from all parts of Eng
land for many hundreds of yards. And
it pays, too, in a coin current in another
kingdom than this; pays a hundred fold,
in tho glad, uncounted treasure of bright
ened homes and heartlis made happy
with sweet and honest labor.
I reap, too, all to myself, a little har
vest of pleasant sights and sounds. It
gladdens me greatly to pass a cottage
door and to hear from witlun the soft
murmur of the wheel. Onco too, on a
wild November day, I saw a strange,
weird vision of the Fates, not Narcissus
crowned, but here alive before me as
three Westmoreland women. Little did
tho three spinsters think as they drew
and cut the tangled thread from the dis
taff that they were setting forth in
homely fashion under the crags of
Louglmgg the tremepdoua myth of life
and death preached centuries ago under
the olive groves of Greece. Albert
