A prominent oculist of this city gives
the following list of queer accidents
that have come under his observation

when an aged parrot seemed to take a
sudden animosity to -the child and dart

ho could get out of tho way.
Some linemen left a lot of short wire
lying on Euterpe street after repairing
the telephone connections in that dis

her way to market early the next morn

wire, when the other end flew up. strik

A milker employed at one of the
dairy farms near the city was milking
a cow that had got her tail matted and
tangled with cockleburs. In the course
of the milking the cow switched her
tail into the man's face, the mass of
burs striking him in one eye and com
pletely destroying the sight of it.

In many parts of the world it is the
general belief that the rainbow has the
power to change sex. This queer belief
obtains in such widely separated dis

long folklore story of the young man
who was changed into a wrinkled old
woman by touching the many hued arch.
The Scandinavian jteasants have a sim

Was It a Fairy Tale ?
A box-car tourist was interviewing ,
Officer John Murray last night and
told him a harrowing tale about how a
tramp had been murdered down
toward the bridge. Murray's heart
was melted with the story, but when
ho thought of his long walk to Ore
apolis recently looking for a corpse,
he suddenly remembered ho had not
lost any dead men and he quickly told
the tourist ho thought the quality of
his whisky had affected his imagina
tion, and he had bettor rest over
night at the Murray hotel and visions
of dead men wouldn't trouble him. If
there was any truth in tho fellow's
story the victim of the assassin is still
at rest down along the river bank
toward the bridge.

Letter From illr. Wilklunon.
To the Editor of The Nbws:
Plattsmouth, Neb., April 9. Dear Sir: I see
the editor of the Journal Jkiens to think that the
reason I did not get more votes than I did on
Tuesday was because 1 was not well enough
known to the voters. Now, Sir, don't you think
that is a mistake ? Don't you think that the real
reason was because I was drafted on to the
ticket f I never looked rpon myself as a candi
date, and 1 am glad that a majority of the voters
did not. I am very well satistied at the way elec
tion went, so far as regards my own case. Yours
truly, T. T. Wilkinson.
Wo believe Mr. Wilkinson is in the
main correct, but tho tight which the
democrats made for councilmen and
the two chief otllcers on the city ticket,
overlooking all else, had, in our opin
ion, most to do with tho result. Ed.
