Bkskelmax, Neb., March 19. Word
has been received here that C. D. Thomp
on, a ranchman living forty miles north
west of here had an encounter with a Mr.
Baker, who, it is alleged, insulted
Thompson's neice. Thompson reproach
ed him for it, whereupon Baker drew a
six shooter with the evident intention of
using it. Thompson kicked the weapon
frem Baker's hand and seizidg it proced
ed to beat the brute about the head and
face, atricking him each time with the
hamer. His head and face are literally
cut to peices. His recovery is doubtful.
Public sympathy is in fayor of Thompson.

Washington, March 19. It is believed
at the department of state that the com
tnissioners will not be able to start for
Berlin before the middle of April, as the
matter with which they have to deal is
rather intricate, and a preparation for it
consideration involves an exhaustive
study of a large amount of diplomatic
correspondence, as well as of the long
protocols of the former conference.
Stranger Than B lotion
Some information s jt been ob
tained of a remarkable case in Birming
ham, a series of circumstances having
been brought to light from which it is
expected that a laboring man in the
town is likely to come into possession of
a fortune of something between 20,000
and 25,000. Some years ago the bor
ough was noted for its hat making.
Among the hatters was one William
Thursfield, and a young man in his em
ploy became attached to one of his
daughters. They married and went to
a Yorkshire town, where they established
themselves successfully in business. No
children resulted from the marriage, and
the couple amassed a large fortune. Mr.
Thursfield died at a ripe old age, and
soon after Lof tus, his son-in-law, died.
He divided the life interest in his exten
sive property to his widow, at whose
death it was to go to the next of kin on
the Thursfield side. About three years
ago Mrs. Lof tus died. Afterward efforts
were made to obtain information as to
the next of kin, but the usual advertise
ments did not yield the desired informa
tion. A Yorkshire gentleman has been
at Newcastle and has obtained valuable
information. The man for whom search
was made proves to be Alfred Thursfield,
who is a bricklayer's laborer over 60
years old and who has a grown up fam
ily. Thursfield is believed to be the heir,
and if that is proved he will pass from
poverty, in his little house in Salter's
lane, to riches and ease. Boston Herald.

There is extant an anecdote illustrative
of the actor Compton's opinion of the
average amateur player. Once an ego
tistical young amateur persistently tried
to engage him in a discussion on acting.
"I am anxious to become a profes
sional now," said the young man. "for I
always get splendid notices, and ' all
my friends think I 6hould make a great
"What line?" Inquired Com p ton.
"Well," was the reply, "I play all the
funny parts, but I don't succeed in mak
ing my audience laugh heartily. I want
to make them scream, as you do."
"Ah," dryly responded Compton,
"you should change your line of char
acters. Try Hamlet and let me know
how you succeed." Detroit Free Press-
girls and foreign noblemen cannot match
the alliance of forty years ago the fa
mous marriage of the old Count de Bo
disco, the Russian minister, and Miss Har
riet Williams, the Georgetown beauty.
Ho was old and decrepit. It is said that
he wore "plumpers" in his cheeks and
dressed his poor, broken old form so that
he looked like a man of 40 after he saw
the beautiful school girl at her father's
house in Georgetown. For she was a
school girl only 14 when he married
her. He sent her to Europe to finish her
education and when she came back she
was the most beautiful woman in Amer
ica. A magnificent, fair woman, with
golden hair and brown eyes, was this
young wife of the old Count de Bodisco.
After leaving here her husband returned
to Russia and she became the reigning
belle of St. Petersburg.
More pathetic than this story, for it
was surely pathetic for a girl of 14 to
marry a man of 70, was the story of her
sister, Miss Fannie Williams. At the
time Count de Bodisco was minister he
had with him as attaches two nephews
of the same name, who .in his last hours
he acknowledged as his illegitimate sons.
One of these nephews loved the sister of
hli incomparable aunt. The Count de
Bodisco claimed that the Russian law
forbade such an intermarriage, and the
two were separated. She went to St.
Petersburg with her beautiful sister, be
came engaged to a Russian nobleman,
and on the eve of her marriage was found
dead, with the ivory miniature of her
first lover in her hand. The tales of the
old days are best, Chicago Tribune.
Not long after the close of the war, Mr.
J. T. Trowbridge visited the field of
Gettysburg, and held conversations with
many persons residing in the neighbor
hood. One afternoon, on Cemetery Hill,
he met a soldier who was in the battle,
and who, being at Harrisburg for a few
days, had taken advantage of an excur
sion train to revisit the scene of that ter
Getting into conversation we walked
down the hill together. As we were ap
proaching a double house with high
wooden steps, he pointed out the f urU.
one, and said: "
"Satur,day mrLing, after the fight, I
S a oce of bread at that house. A
man stood on the steps and gave each of
us fellows a piece. We were hungry as
bears, and it was a godsend. I should
like to see that man and thank him."
Just then the man himself appeared at
the door. We went over, and I intro
duced the 6oldier, who, with tears in his
eyes, expressed his gratitude for that act
of Christian charity.
"Yes," said the man, when reminded
of the circumstance, "we did what we
could. We baked bread here night and
day to give to every hungry soldier who
wanted it. Wo sent away our own chil
dren to make room for the wounded
soldiers, and for days our house was a
hospital." Youth's Companion.
What I am about to describe has been
a puzzle to me for about one year and six
months; and I think some reader of The
Journal may be able to explain it.
Something has developed in my eyesight.
What it is I do not know, but I will do my
best to describe it. This something I
can see at will, and when I do not want
to see it it will not come. I only see it
in the light. It will take many changes,
even changing its shape while I am look
ing at it. It seems to be composed of
changing pearls strung together. This
line of shining pearls has been growing
larger ever since I first noticed it in
each eyo a different bine. One line will
twist itself in all kinds of shapes while
I am looking at it, and seems to be about
four feet from me, in front. It has in
creased lately to a great 6ize.
If I look at the right line, then I do
not see the left one, and looking at the
left one will force the other away.. I am
in perfect health , and have first class
eyesight. Perhaps some doctor will say
the phenomenon is caused by disease of
the eyes. - Will somebody explain the
cause? Religio-Philosophical Journal.

The habit is supposed to point to the time
in canino history when the dog was wild
and inhabited jungles or tall grass.: Then
it was necessary to turn several times in
order to twist the grass into the proper
position for pressing down into a com
fortable nest. The habit became fixed
and the modern dog has not outgrown
it. Kansas City Journal.
