New Diphtheria Cases.
The weather ot late has been spec

of diphtheria, and several severe
cases have been reported. James

Snow Along Railroads.
All the railroads in the state re

throughout Nebraska is of about the
same depth as that in Omaha, says
the Omaha Bee. In Kansas the snow
along the railway lines is about six
inches in depth. In Wyoming there
has been no snow since Monday, but

started to cross the fence with the
shotgun which he was carrying in bio
left hand, or under his left arm the
muzzle pointing forward. He was on
the top board of tho fence with his
ritrht limb over, when the board
broke and in the fall tho gun, which
was cocked, was discharged. The en
tire load of fine shot entered his ankle
from tho muzzle of the gun, which
could have been only a few inches
away. The ankle joint was shattered
and the two bones of the leg the
t.ihin. and fibula were fractured for
four inches above the joint. The'ar-
ticular surface of the ankle joint was
hlnwn to fragments, makintr a most
trhastlv and oainful wound. The
bones were so badly broken and flesh
lacerated by the force of tho explosion
that amputation was found imperative.
As soon as the accident happened Mr.
Eikenbary called for help, and he was
carried into the house.
Doctors Wallaco and Davis of Union
were auickly called and a telephone
message was sent to this city for Dr.
Humphrey, who made quick time in
reaching the bedside of the injured
man: After a careful examination of
the wound, the threo physicians
agreed that amputation was necessary
and at 6 o'clock last night, Dr. Hum'
nhrev performed the operation, as
sisted by Dr Wallace and Dr. Davis.
At 3:30 this morning the patient was
recovering nicelv from the shock of
amputation and seemed in a fair way
for complete recovery.

Rheumatism Cured in a Day.
A few weeks ago the editor was
taken with a very severe cold that
caused him to be in a most miserable
condition. It was undoubtedly a bad
case of la giippe, and recognizing it
as dangerous he took immediate
steps to bring about a speedy cure.
From the advertisement of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy, and the many
good recorameDdatious included
therein, we concluded to make - first
trial of the medicitie. To say that it
was satisfactory in its results, is put
it very mildly, indeed. It acted like
magic and the result was a speedy and
permanent cure. We have no hesi
tancy in recommending this excellent
Cough Remedy to anyone atHicted
with a cough or cold in any form. The

OLD CATERER ON TERRAPIN.
When It Is Heady, the Satisfaction Is In
MKatlng- It All Yourself."
James Prosser, a famous colored ca
terer of this city, dead long ago, fur
nished tho following formula for pre
paring and serving terrapin, which was
published in a gastrononii journal at tho
time when he was on earth :
"You can't enjoy terrapin unless the
day is nippin. Temperaturo and terra
pin go hand in hand. Now, as to your
terrapin. Bless you, there is all the
difference in the world in them. Tho
more northerly is the terrapin found the
better. You eat a Florida terrapin you
needn't despise it, for terrapiu'is terra
pin everywhere but you get a Chesa
peake one or a Delaware bay one, or,
better still, a Long Island one, and there
is just the difference between $ 10 a
dozen and $86. Warm water kinder
washes the delicate flavor out of them.
Don't you let Mr. Bergh know it, bat
jrour terrapin must be boilod alive.
Have a good big pot, with a hot fire un
der it, so that he shan't languish, and
when it has got on a full head of steam
pop him in. What I am goin to give is
recipe for a single one. If you are aw
fully rich and go in for a gross of terra
pin, just use your multiplication table.
Just as soon as he caves in watch him
and try his flippers. When they part
when you pry them with your finger
nail, he is good. Open him nicely with
a knife. Bilin of him dislocates the
snuffbox. There ain't overmuch of it,
more's the pity. The most is in the
jints of the legs and side lockers, but if
you want to commit murder just you
emash his gall, and then your terrapin
is gone forever. Watch closely for egga
and handle them gingerly. Now, bav
in got him or her all into shape, put
the meat aside. Take three fresh eggs
you must have them fresh. Bile 'em
hard and mash em smooth. Add to
that a tablespoonful of sifted flour,
three tablespoonfuls of cream, salt and
pepper (red pepper to a terrapin is just
depravity) and two wineglasses of sher
ry wine. Wine as costs $2. 50 a bottle
ain't a bit too good. There never was a
gotega in all Portugal that wouldn t
think itself honored to have itself mixed
op with a terrapin. Now you want quite
a quarter oi a pouna oi ine very oess
fresh butter and put that in a porcelain
covered pan and melt it first mustn't
be browned. When it s come to be oily,
put in your terrapin, yolks of egg, wine
and all. Let it simmer gently. Bilm
up two or three times does the business.
What you are after is to make it blend.
There ain't uothin that must bo too point
ed in terrapin stew. It wants to be a
quiet thing, a suave thing, just pervad
ed with a most beautiful and natural
terrapin aroma. You must serve it to
the people that eats it on a hot plate,
but the real thing is to have it on a
chafin dish, and though a man ought
not to be selfish there is a kind of divine
satisfaction in eatin it all yourself."
Postal and Traveling Accommodations of
the Old German City.
The post relations of ancient Stuttgart
were unpretentious. The two maid
servants of the postmaster distributed
through the city the daily letters, which
thev carried in the same basket witn tne
family marketing. Letters were carried
out of the city by postilions. There was
a number of couriers, and as a surety
against mistakes there hung in the post-
office, beside the curious mail bags, a
huge whip, with which, when the com
mission had been given to the courier, a
powerful blow for the strengthening of
his memory was dealt him.

travelers being ever on the defensive
against the assaults of tumbling boxes
and bundles. And then the weary slow

from Stuttgart to Tubingen was made
in 12 hours. The same journey ia now
made in four hours. The postilions

The Modern Agnostic
We look at our churches with their
congregations, growing in numbers and
dwindling in faith, says a. u. Lnap-
man in The Atlantic, and we ask our
selves: In all these buildings, cheap or
costly, what real prayers rise, and of
those that rise do any get above the
roof? What God hears them and has
there ever been an answered prayer? We
look at the face of the dead and repeat
a burial service. If after the manner of
men I have fought with beasts at Ephe
bus, what advantageth it me if the dead
rise not? And as we say the words we
ask ourselves "Do the dead rise?" And
if any one is found who believes these
things he knows that there is another
at his elbow who believes them not a
tvhit or an atom, and these two can hit
ui no universe that shall satisfy both,
tor can one be poet to the other.

THEY DON'T LIKE PAPER.
Savages at First Contact Regard the Fabrlfl
When savage people first come in con
tact with tho whites, nouo of tho won
ders that they boo is regarded with more
suspicion than large nheets of paper.
TVm mttivn in ant to roiard TnTer as a
sort of cloth, and the fact: thnt it tears
raiHilv and is worthless for most of tho
purposes to which cloth is put convinces
him that it is a fraud.
One or two Kongo travelers told of
the diHgust with which the natives at
first regarded paper. The Kongo tribes,
by the way, are on the lookout for
sharpers, and it is exceedingly hard
work for anybody to Bell them a bad
quality of cutlery or cloth. Savages
Boon find, however, that paj.er is not in
tended to servo tho purposes of cloth.
Then they ceaso to look upon it as a
fraud, but they do not think it ranks
high among white man's manufactures,
and they have little une for it.
Some time ago a well known explorer
was traveling in tho interior of Queens
land, Australia, where he met many
natives who had never seen a white man
Ono day a crowd of natives was in
the white man's camp carefully inspect
ing the explorer and his baggago when
a newspaper happened to drop out of
The natives unfolded and spread it
out on tho ground. They decided that it
must be an article of wearing apparel,
and one of them tried it on. He wrap
ped it round his shoulders likea Bhawl
and sat down on the ground, arranging
his covering this way and that and
watching the faces of the crowd to see
what they thought of his elegant gar
ment, covered as it was with many
thousands of curious marks.
Presently, however, an accident hap
pened. While the savage was rearrang
ing his shawl and trying to bring the
corners together in front of him the gar
ment began to tear at the nape of, his
neck. A howl from the crowd called at
tention to the disaster. The blanket, or
whatever it was, was evidently made of
the poorest sort of material.
Tho savage took his covering off, ex
amined the mischief he had wrought,
made the tear a little longer and then
with his finger poked a hole through
That settled the fact that the article
was worthless. The newspaper sudden

They Contain Essential Elements For Per
fect Nourishment of the Body.
"Cereals and fruits should form the
baso of breakfast foods," writes Mrs.
S. T. Rorer on "Breakfast Cereals and
Fruits" in her cooking lesson in The
Ladies' Home Journal. "They will sup
port muscular action, preserve the heat
of the body and strengthen the brain in
its nervous activity. Whole or steel cut
oats and whole wheat, from which our
nineteenth century bread should be
made, contain the essential elements for
the perfect nourishment of the human
body. The great objection to cereal
foods is their difficulty of digestion, not
from any fault of the foods, but, first,
irom lack of time in cooking and, second,
from lack of proper mastication. Raw
starches are indigestible. The first step,
then, toward the digestion of starches
is over the fire. Each little cell must be
ruptured, and for this long and careful
cooking is required. The second step to
the digestion of starches is in the
mouth. They are there converted from
the insoluble starch to soluble sugar.
Ji they are swallowed quickly, without
mastication, they miss this digestion,
entering the stomach as strangers. This
organ not being prepared to receive
them, they are cast out into the small
intestines to be entirely instead of part
ly digested. This organ, now compelled
to do, in addition to its own duties, the
work of the mouth, soon becomes over
taxed, and we have, as a result, the
disease most common in this country
14 Of the breakfast cereals eteel cut
oats head the list. Any of the wheat
germ preparations are good. After these
come the rolled wheat and barley and
rice preparations. All these foods, how
ever, must be thoroughly cooked and
eaten without sugar. "
Why He Left the Stage.
There is in Philadelphia a man who
abandoned the theatrical profession be
cause he could not lift Fanny Daven
port. He was a member of one of the
local stock companies about ao years
a- - J- A.
ago, wnen juiss uavenporu came
Philadelphia with one of the men oi
her company sick. She applied to the
manager of the theater in whioh the
young man referred to was employed
for some one to take the sick man s
place, and as the young actor was not
in the cast of the play then running his
services were loaned to Miss Davenport.
He was cast for the part of Caius Lucius
in "Cymbeline," and the business of
the part required that he should take
Miss Davenport in his arms and carry
her off the stage. The lady weighed
considerably more than he did, and
when he attempted to pick her up he
found that his strength was not equal
to the task. His struggles caused the
audience to laugh, and that spoiled a
sood scene. He was so humiliated that
he left the profession after that engage

In Peru they drink mate, a tea made
from the Ilex paraguensis, a species of
holly. This is the only mate tea, but
there is a Brazilian tea, gorgonha, call

tria, called Brazilian tea, and Beveral
other so called mate teas are made from
different varieties of the ilex. In L.ab
rador they make a tea from two species
of ledum. Oswego tea was made rrom
the scarlet mouarda, and mountain tea

A aue6tion that has often been asked
