Swallowed a Nail.
George Bax, jr., a young carpenter
of Omaha, who has been on several
visits in this eity and has many
acquaintances here, figured in an un
foitunate accident the first of the week
while working at his trade in Omaha.
The young man was carrying a hand
ful of nails in his mouth, as is the cus
tom of the hammer artists, when one
ef them made a sudden deeension
down his traot, piercing the walls
ef his stomach. He was shortly
seized with pains and cranis and when
removed to the hospital it was found
an operation was necessary to remove
the object fremi its lodging. The
operation was performed and at this
time he is on the road to recovery.
Mrs. Julia Decker, grand-mother of
Mr. Bax, received a message Monday
informing her of the seriousness of
the ease and she left on that day to
be present at the operation. It is
hopes by the young man's friends in
this city that his confinement will be
of short duration and that he will
be able to again take up hia work.

SUFFERERS FROM ASTHMA.
Juit m Likely to Die of Old Ago aa
From the Diseaia.
Among all physical ills asthma is
perhaps the most irritating. It is
hard to endure and terrible to ob
serve. Its victims die a thousand
deaths, as far as suffering is con
cerned, and yet arc denied the dig
nity of having a fatal disease, for it
is one of the heartless axioms of ex
perience that the asthmatic sufferer
is quite as likely to die of old age as
of his disease. It has been said
that asthma is not a disease, but a
6tate of body, and if its victims arc
able to extract any comfort from
the knowledge that it is nervous
in its origin they are entitled to
Any one looking on for the first
time at a well pronounced asthmat
ic seizure is convinced that ho is
watching a death scene, and no
wonder, so terrifying are tho symp
toms. The patient fights piteously
for breath, sometimes crouching for
hours in one position, pallid, bath
ed in perspiration and apparently
in the final stages of sulTocation;
but, curiously enough, with all tho
distress, the patient does not 6eem
to feel any real alarm as to tho out
come. The attack may pass off cither
rapidly or gradually, in many cases
leaving no apparent after effect ex
cept a sense of great fatigue.
Asthma being a disease with a
nervous origin, it follows that there
are as many theories about it and
remedies for it as there are suffer
ers from it. With some persons tho
attacks are apparently a certain
outcome of eating a certain kind of
food or breathing a certain kind of
air or reaching a certain day and
month of the year. Many asth
matics claim tho power of cheating
their enemy up to a certain point
by moving to some other locality
when the tragic elate draws near.
The asthmatics living in the valleys
may pass in transit their fellow suf
ferers who habitually live on tho
Those who trace their attacks to
digestive disturbances learn to
avoid the starchy foods or the fat
foods or whatever food it is that
upsets them. Some cannot live near
a stable; others cannot bo near a
certain shrub or flower. Indeed,
tho specialties of these unfortuno
people are without number.
Tho asthmatic, however, has two
great sources of comfort. One is
the reasonable hope of reaching a
good old age. The other is the fact
that great help is to bo found for
him in a strictly hygienic mode of
living. The better air he breathes
both day and night, the simpler bis
diet and the more wisely ordered
his exercise the fewer will be tho
number of his attacks. Youth's
Shortened Her Stay.
The wife of the clergyman of a
certain suburban parish, says the
Boston Traveler, was mending
clothes the other day when a visitor
was announced. The hostess went
on with her sewing, for the caller
was a well known parishioner. Aft
er awhile the visitor glanced to
ward the sewing table and exclaim
ed: "Why, there are some buttons ex
actly like some my husband had on
his last winter suit. They are an
odd kind of button too. Where did
you get them?"
The clergyman's wife smiled
roguishly. "In the collection bas

The caller changed the subject as
hastily as she could, and somehow
or other she did not stay very long.

Several peeiple of the city, who have
taken the trouble to investigate into
the merits eif the coining carnival ceim-
pany, have found that they bear the
best eif a reputation. Their shows all
seem to be high class ones, clean and
moral in every respect. If the company
is ii(t the best that has ever been in
this city, ihe Rednien will bury the ir
teiniahawks in jjihe sands eif the Big
Muddy and formally withdraw from
the limelight. The Brown company
has been leaving behind it a trail of
well satisfied towns and all the engage
ments have been money makers for the
promeitcrs. Re-ports from Beatrice
and Wyniore say that eyerything went
fine during their enagagemcnta and
everyone seemed satisfied. At Wy
niore, where the shows filled a three
days engagement, they were under the
auspices of the city fire department.
The company arrived in their cars yes
terday, but little was done towar 1 the
setting up of their tents as they do not
have their grand opening till Saturday
night. It is hoped the peeiple will
not be under the impression that the
carnival is here but for a day or two
for they are to remain iu the city dur
ing the entire week of the Fourth of
July, making a total of seven playing
days. Eight big free events will take
place during that time, four slides for
