ConrtH will take notice without
proof of events which are generally
known within the limits ot llieir jur
isdiction. This will include
changes in the oflice of the chief
rxeculive. and such acts of public
and general interest as may be said
to be conspicuous events in the
history of the state.
- One who seeKs by quo warranto
proceedings to obtain possession of
an oflice held by another must show
that he has a better title to such of
fice than the incumbent.
When the only claim of the relator
fo an oflice is the right to hold over
after the expiration of his term, on
the ground that the respondent, his
successor elect, is ineligible; and
while the action is pending and un
determined he voluntarily abandons
the oflice in controversy and sur
renders it to the respondent, such
act will disoualifv him to further
prosecute as relator and amounts to
an abandonment of the iction.

Nelson, Neb., April 6. To the
People.J On Thursday, March 31,
1S92, a cyclone visited the city of
Nelson, Nebraska, the county seat
of Nuckolls county. The resident
part of the city in the north and the
west was where the work of destruc
tion was most, complete. The
homes of all in that section of the
city were entirely swept away, to
gether with all their houses con
tained. Numerous citizens in the
surrounding country shared the
same fate. The more fortunate
people in the citj' and country have
all contributed liberally, but their
best efforts will prove inadequate to
meet the wants of these distressed
The loss entailed upon ourpeople
has been estimated at $150,000. The
condition of those who have lost
their all is deplorable and forces us
to call upon the country at large for

Where Spools Are Made.
"Oxford count-, Me., turns out nearly
all of the spools on which the thread of
this country is wound," said a wholesale
notion dealer. "The spools are made
from white birch timber, and they are
produced by the million in Oxford coun
ty. There are many other points in west
ern .Maine, also, wnere the industry is
important. There are many sawmills in
that part of the state which are kept
busy the year around sawing white lnich
logs into strips four feet long and f .om
one to two inches wide and of the same
"These strips are sent to the spool fac
tories, where they are quickly worked
into spools by most ingenious labor sav
ing machinery. The strips of white Lire1.;
are fed into one machine, and they ur,
not touched, in fact are hardly soen.
again until the spools, all finished for
market except polishing, drop out by tbe
bushel from another machine several
rods away from where the strips start c;l
in. Ihe spools get their gloss by bem;:
rapidly revolved in barrels by machinery,
the polish resulting from the contact of
the spools in the barrel.
'In the backwoods villages of Oxford
county one sees scarcely any other in
dustry but spoolmaking, and every one
is in some way interested in the business.
The factories have been eating into the
Maine birch forests for years, but there
seems to be enough left yet to feed them
well for years to come. Hundreds of
thousands of feet of logs are cut and
sawed into spool timber annually."

hard as hard as the young man whom
I heard. I suppose the sense of to "gee
or to "jolly" is that otherwise expressed
by the pleasing verbs to "kid," to "stuff,"'
to "give a breeze;" but from what store
house of philology have to "jolly" and
to give a "gee" been drawn? Is "gee'"
an extension of the truncated initial of
that sweet, thrilling word guff? 13
"jolly" merely a variation of the French
adjective joli? And does jolly mean to
say a pretty, fine or false thing to?

The Light from Cuban Fireflies.
The secret of the light the Cuban fire
fly gives is as yet undiscovered. Ap
parently it is connected in some way
with the mysterious phenomena of life,
and chemists and physicists have sought
in vain to explain its origin. On each
side of the animal's thorax is a luminous
membranous spot, and these flash at in
tervals, so that the Cubans put a dozen
of the insects in a cage together, and so
obtain a continuous illumination, bright
enough to read by. This light is accom
named by no perceptible neat, and is
seemingly produced with almost no ex
penditure of energy. How great an wn
provement it represents upon all known
artificial lights can be imagined when it
is stated that the loss from other lights is
more than 99 per cent. Washington
Impure Ice and Typhoid Fever.
Some years ago Dr. Charles Smart, of
the United States army, traced the cause
of mountain fever to the melting snow
of the Rocky mountain streams, and in
ferred that the germs of this typho-ma-larial
fever were brought down from
the atmosphere by snow, remained fro
zen during winter, and then passed into
the streams in an active condition when
the snow melted in May, June and July.
It is frequently the case that impure ice
is the agent of transmitting typhoid and
other fevers. Engineering Magazine.

helped to bury him were killed so that
no one might find out where the con
queror of Rome was buried." Yankee
