William Tate of Peru and Ad
Wooster of Nebraska City were beat
ing their way to this city from Pacific
Junction on the Burlington this morn
ing, and when the train entered the
lower yards the trainmen saw them.
The brakeman told Tate to get olT, but
heirefused and the "shack" threw
his hat otY. Tute then jumped from
the train and in so doing struck his
head against a box-car standing on
another track, cutting a deep gash
over the eye and bruising his head up
quite badly. Uis comrade went up to
the depot, where Policeman Fry and
Night Watchman Ilassen wore found
and tho three men went down where
the young man was found in r.n un
conscious state, with his head on the
rail jind blood flowing from the cut on
his forehead. He was tiken to the
depot and cared for until 5 o'clock,
when Deputy Sheriil McBt ide was no
tified and he was taken to the county
jail. Dr. T. P. Livingston, the com
pany physician, and County Physician
Schildknecht wore called and dressed

Tho navy department is ttiking
step toward the formation of a mos
quito fleet lor the Philippines. Tho
conditions now prevailing in Luzon
indicate that for a long time it will bo
neceisary to maintain a ttrict police
of tho coast and inland waters. For
the island work, especially, the gov
ernments will need sorno very light
draft boats. For this work tho big
ocean tugs that formed tho mosquito
fleet that operated around Cuba dur
ing the blockade and of which tho gov
ernment has a number, are now being
looked over with a view to just this
service. Some of them are on the Pa
cific co ist.
The department has figured out a
coasting voyage that will take them
up the Alaskan coast, coaling at Sitka,
Unalaska, Cook's inlet, and so down
through tho Aluetian island to Hake
dota, tho northern point of Japan.
Thence they can make the run across
the China sea down to Ilong Kong
and thenco to tho Philippines. It will
bo about a two months' voyage, but
one that can be made safely. Spain
had a large fleet of the small gunboats
and torpodo gunboats, admirably
suited for this work in the Philip
pines, but has recently sold thirteen
oT them at Hong Kong. It is possible
some of these vessels -maj he repur
chased by the government in case they
are in good condition and can be had
for a reasonable sum. The tugs des
tined for Philippine sorvico will be
armed with an abundance of machine
guns and with heavier rapid-firo guns

Kings on Index Finger.
Rings never w re more fashionabl
and it is the latest fashion to wear a
ring on the index finger, and this ia
quite as awkward as wearing a circlet
of jewels on the thumb. The ring mos
approved at present to wear on the
index finger is large and costly. I
consists of a ruby surrounded with
diamonds. An emerald set in this
same fashion Is also in vogue. Won

ancient rings, irany of which cover

intersected with lagoons, narrow and

the Americans wero ignorant as to
whether they wero attacking a hun

to it by Nicholas, czar of Russia. On ;
the night of the 9th of January, 1S5H. j
the British minister at the Russian
court. Sir George Hamilton Seymour, j
was at a party gathering in the palace ;
of the Archduchess Helen, when ti.e i
Emperor Nicholas approached him and j
drew him into a convergation. This j
was chiefly with reference to eastern j
affairs, and in course of it he niruK'
the following remark as to Turkey j
and its position: "We have oa our j
hands a very sick man; it will be, i i
tell you frankly, a great misfortune if i
one of these days he should alio aww j
from us, especially before all r.ecessvy j

Whenever we think of "Lo, the poor

as smoking the picturesque "pipe of
peace, yet today we find him smoking
cigarettes. It is enough to maki Te

old-time braves rise from their graves
with a flourish of the tomahawk and
a warwhoop. It is a question how the
Apaches and Navajos of the South
western reservation acquired tnis hab
it. Some say it was their associations
with the Mexican tribes, who learned
cigarette making from the Spanish.
Others attribute their downfall to the
cowboys. But, however they came fay
the habit, they do not smoke paper
cigarettes. They simply gather up In
dian corn husks and dry them. When
a cigarette is wanted the dried husk Is
thoroughly wet in water, the tobacco
