He plead not guilty and was remanded back to jail to await trial at the next torm of court in March. W. II. Long, tho man who was on McComb's bond, which was forfeited, waa in court today and secured the setting aside of tho forfeiture, as he had succeeded in bringing his iuan into court. Long was held, however, for all the costs that bad been made in the search for McComb. Mure About the Oil Well. Yes sir, Brother Polk, Kim wood's got an oil well, and if you don't be lieve it come out and see. About six weeks ago, Lee llorton put down a well on Kngelking's farm, and a few days afterward oil waa discovered in tho well. The well, which is thirty feet deep, contains about two feet of oil and water, which is reported to run in as fast as taken out. A week ago Sunday, E. M. Jacobs and IJ. F. Krull went out to tho well and procured a bottle of the lluid which they brought to town. When poured on a stick or on the ground and a lighted match applied, it im mediately ignited. Saturday Theo. Shafer procured a barrel of tho oil and brought it to town and a largo number of our citi zens took some and tested it. The re sults showed that it burned in a lamp as good aa any oil in Klmwood. Where there's oil there's coal, and as we havo tho oil, in all probability wo will soon go after the coal. Just watch our smoke! Klmwood Loader Echo. Were Micely Entertained.

Some people imagine because a pub lisher is issuing a certain publication, that there is no good reason wtiy ad vertisements cannot bo run for a song, remarks an exchange. They imagine that the publisher has ail his general expenses to meet anyhow, and that an advertisementdoesn't amount to much by way of expanse. As well might a man step into a bank and say to the cashier: "You have thousands on deposit lying idle. Your expenses will ba no more or no less. Why not loan me $10,000 or 0,000 for sixty or ninety days without interest? I can not afford to pay interest, but I will give you abundant security and you will not be out anything.', Should a man do such a thing, the cashier would have every reason to dou t the man's sanity. Supposing a man should step into a 6toro and say to tho proprietor, you must sell me your goods at less than cost or I will deal with nd throw my influence to your competitor across the street This man might well be suspected of a weakness in his upper story, as well as having his moral education sadly neglected.

Cnntom In Till I'lirtlciilar Have Changed Radically -At tho I'r ciit Time the Per gonal Inclination of Young Women Are Considered. Mish Anna L. liieknell ia an English lady who has had most nnusual oppor tunities for studying French life. For a numbi r of years she was a governess in the household of Napoleon III and re sided in tho Tnileries. For Tho Century Miss I'ickmll has written an article on "French Wives and Mothers." Misa Uicknell says: Tho old mariago de convenanco, which caused so ninth sorrow and consequent evil in former days, when a girl was taken out of a convent to bo shown tho man to whom she was about to bo mar ried, is now a thing of the past. It must bo acknowledged, however, that mar riages are still made up, often too has tily and superficially, by nicely balanced family arrangements and by the inter vention of friends. Nevertheless, attrac tion and revulsion are now taken into consideration, and a girl is no longer forced to marry a man whom she posi tively dislikes. I could quote instances in tho very highest (historical) aristoc racy where, at the last moment, after the trousseau had been sent in (marked, according to custom, with tho united initial letters of tho two names elabo rately embroidered) and all the social preparations made, the marriage was broken off because the brido had de clared that sho could not "get accus tomed" to tho bridegroom nor endure the idea of seeing his face in her home during her natural life. In one of these instances tho family lamentations over the initials of the trousseau were really amusing. Fortunately a substitute was soon found whose name, like that of tho rejected suitor, began with an X, and tho complications wcro thus happily settled. The great object of the French girl's life is marriage. From the time of her birth her parents have prepared for this event, and in many cases they havo con siderably straitened their income and curtailed their enjoyments to make up her dot. Every girl in every class is ex pected to have something. Those who havo nothing are exceptions and consti tute a minority of old maids. The girls who from choice do not marry generally become nuns, usually much against the wishes of their parents. The old tales of young women being forced into con vents to improve the position of their brothers are forgotten in these days, when, while no child can on any pre tense be deprived of a share in tho fa ther's inheritance, monastic vows are not recognized by law. Nuns and spin sters are exceptions; marriage is the rule. When a girl is of ago to be introduced into society, her friends and relatives immediately look out for a suitable hus band, whom it is considered highly de sirable to obtain before she has reached the age of 21, that she may not be pro claimed fille majeure when the banns are published. The principal considera tions are equality of birth, of position, of fortune, and in the last particular the scale is usually expected to weigh rather more on the side of the young lady, especially if the young man, in addition to sufficient present advantages, can bring forward a number of relatives not likely to live long. This is called having hopes (desesxjerances beaucoup d'esperances). If the young lady with a substantial dot can also show a satisfac tory background of invalid uncles and aunts, then everything is as it should be, and the young people are brought together with every prospect of a favor able conclusion. It happens, however, too often that they do net know each other sufficiently, and that they aro per suaded to believe that the mutual liking is greater than it really is. Sometime this sort of undefined attraction ripens into a deep and devoted love. When this occurs, there are no more affection ate wives or more faithful widows than Frenchwomen. Moro frequently, especially in the higher classes, a sort of cool friendliness springs up, where they see but little of each other, and freedom ia enjoyed on both sides. The authority of the hus band is less felt than in an English household. There is a sort of under standing that in her homo the wife is queen and settles matters as she pleases. But their best and warmest feelings are awakened by all that concerns their children. French parents are perhaps the most affectionate in the world. The interests and welfare of their children are their first consideration, and won derful sacrifices of their own pleasure and enjoyment are made in favor of their sous and daughters by the most worldly men and women. These are taken as a matter of course; no one thinks of doing otherwise or of seeing any merit in such acts. The mothers especially are unequal ed. Nothing will stand in the way of a Frenchwoman where her children's in terests are concerned. This love i3 so engrossing that it swallows up every other. . They are more mothers than wives, and if called upon to choose be tween allowing a husband to go alone on a foreign mission or leaving their children they would not hesitate.

A ii amusing scene occurred during the war, to which tho editor was a witness, remarks the Greenwood Rec ord.

Tho audience waa c. moost d principally of soldiers. Wo siw in the audience General Grant, who was then a briga dier general. Colonels John A. Logan It. J. Ogloshy.

A largo number of the Second Iowa cavalry, and many of them had been drinking, occupied tho front seats, one of them became excited at Jessie Itiown'a ap peals, and jumping up, he exclaimed, "Tho Second Iowa cavalry will pro tect vou. bv G d."

BURLINGTON WORK IN WYOMING. Improvements In Itiiailliril ami General Track Equipment. Tho Burlington railroad is doing a great amount of work on tho Wyom ing divi-ion. The road bed from Mor.-land to Alliance, on the west, is heinr widened and the track for the O entire distance is being ballasted. From Whitman -on tho east to Mot s land on the west, trains loaded with ore are being freely run, and new, heavy steel rails aro being distri buted. As soon as the weather will permit this distance will be relaid with this heavier steel. The gravel trains are run from the west and hundreds of men are employed in this new work. When this work is com pleted the Burlington route through to Hillings will be in good condition and the division prepared for heavier engines and faster running. The officials of the system have recent". y been over thia part of the lino and General Manager Holdiege on Thursday left for another in?pec tu ntripon tho west end. There is considerable speculation regarding the building of a new piece of road from Deadwood across to Cheyenne, connecting with the Cheyenne North ern at tho junction near Douglass. Tne business done on this" division has been enormous since the early part of last summer. WThen the stock season closed the coal trade from New Castle and Sheridan began, with greater demands than at any previous time in tho history if the road and it seems that the demand does not di minish. These mines are now being worked to their full capacity and the output is not less than 120 cars daily. This means 120 cars of thirty-ton capacity.

A perplexing problem has presented itself to tho Chinese residents of this city. They have not been ablo to make up their minds whether their Now Year's cele bration sh'ju'd begin today or tomor row. The Chinese minister at Wash in ton has i.-sued a proclamation declaring th it tomorrow shall be celebrated instead of today, in d In it tho Chinese residents in thia country havo for tho j ast forty -eight years begun celebrating a day too soon. Why it has taken forty-eight years to make Ihia interesting discovery la not et forth, but thero ia no doubt that tho children of the Celestial empire havo been laboring under a sad de lusion. The difference in time between this country and China was tho causo of tho mistake. Tho proclamation to tho Chinese residents of the country to change tho date of tho colcbration has been sent to tho Chinese consuls, who have transmitted it to tho leading Chinamen of tho cities where they are stationed. The proclamation has created a good deal of excitement in Chinatown. Somo of its residents have decided to ignore it entirely and begin celebrating today, and last night they were hard at work making their preparations. Others intend to show their respect for their country's representative by postponing their festivities. Tho result will bo that thero will bo two Chinese Now Years this year. Their Silver Wedding. Mr. and Mrs. Michael Timmis cele brated their silver wedding anniver sary Saturday evening in an elabor ato manner.

Tho judge fined him $5 and cobts and threw in one of his lectures on the side. The fellow's cash had melted lil0 an April snow, and the chances of his having to re turn to jail seemed good, but he car ried a pretty fair watch, which he was allowed to put up until he could get homo and secure the money. He took the first train for Gienwood this morning. New I tali Sugar F actories. Pkovo. Utah, Jan. 23. Utah will soon have two sugar factories in addi tion to the one at Lehi.

Potatoes deteriorate in cooking qualities when exposed to light prob- .b!y more than any vegetable grown, md should strictly be kept in perfect darkness if the highest quality is to be preserved. Sometimes scions for grafting aro cut in the fall. Ibey may be kept through the winter by putting the butt end into a potato and placing in tho cellar. The potato will supply the needed moisture. Be very care ful in labeling them. Runaway horses are unknown in Ru3sia. No one dri-ves there without having a thin cord with a nooso around the neck of the animal. When an animal starts the cord is pulled, and the horse stops as soon as it feels the pressure on the windpipe.

A few weeks ago the editor wae taken with a very severe cold that caused him to be in a most miserable condition. It was undoubtedly a bad case of la grippe, and recognizing it as dangerous ho took immediate steps to bring about a speedy cure. From the advertisement of Chamber lain's Cough Remedy and the many good recommendations included therein, we concluded to make a first trial of the medicine. 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 afllicted wiih a cough or cold in any form. The Banner of Liberty,Liberty town, Mary land.
