A Sad Realization.
No parent who has watched from in
fancy the trrowt h if a daughter until
she has trained the estate of woman
hood, onlv with the fondest love and
anxiety for her happiness. As she be
gins to walk and chatter, you take
much comfort in her little pranks.
When she attains the aire of four, live
or six vears. she is loowe'i upon as your
very idol, and your heart nearly
breaks when you think you could not
be happy without her. There is an in
stance in this city at the present mo
ment, which brinjj forth these
thoughts, thouirh the instance is sad
and heart renderinir. For several

from a disease that has battled the
most skilled physicians. She is now
wasting away like a flower cut by the
biting frost, and when we look upon
her dear little face, although no rela
tive of the writer, we are almost mov
ed to tears. The mother, the father
and sisters realize the nearinir of the
end of their little daughter and sister,
and when she sadly turns her little
face up to them, they can only keep
the tears back to save distress to the
little one. This is a picture, and a sad
one at that, that but few parents have
irone through watching the fading
flower of the family gradually beinjr

parent must extend heartfelt sympa

Tough on the Chicken.
Hecently a farmer in the west part
of Cass county, so the story goes, found
an auto horn in the road not many
days ago, and took it home and taught
tne cnicKens to recognize its howk as
their feed call. Instead of calling
them in the old-fashioned way the
farmer and his wife would blow the
auto horn. One day an automobilist
passed the farm going at the rate of
about fifteen miles an hour, and toot
ing his horn. The chickens near the
louse took out after the auto and four
teen hens and three roosters ran them
selves to death behind the machine.

The facts as we have been able to

"liohanan had lost a bet which he
had watered with some one, and was
about to pay it, when a young man
named James Cook began to joke w ith
him about loosing the bet. This was
not appreciated by the looser and hot
words passed between the parties,
when young Cook, who is a muscular
young man, struck liohanan, and in a
second, the latter drew his revolver
and tired upon Cook, killing him in

"gainst liohanan. and rumor has it.

his neck to hang him. when he was

The Great Hail Storm of 1883. From the
Lincoln State Democrat July 17, 1883.
The citizens of Cass county has con
gratulated themselves that they had
escaped the cyclones.
While commiserating over the ter-
tible distruction of life and property in
other places, this county had com
menced to feel a sense of security from
the destroying elements.
Iiut on last Friday, (July iss:?) at
about noon, the worst and most de
structive storm ever known in the
county, left destruction in its track
So far as known at the present time
the storm struck the county between
Louisville and South Bend, on the
line of the B. & M., and extended some
10 or 12 miles east. From thence the
storm took a southeasterly course, de
stroying crops, orchards, young groves
and even the prairie grass in places.
Corn that was shoulder high and "laid
by' was literally cut to pieces and
pounded into the ground. Small grain
just ready for the reaper was beaten
into the earth. Apples were pounded
off the trees and in many instances
the trees were stripped of their leaves
and in some Instances, stripped of the
bark. Young pigs, chickens, and even
hogs were killed by the pitiless hail
One farmer, as your correspondent has
been informed, had a yearling calf
actually pounded to death by the hail
The track of the storm cuts a strip
from 10 to 12 miles wide diagonally
through the county and comprises an
area of not less than 200 square miles
This area constitutes about one
third the area of the country and com
prises me nnest iarms ana oest grain
producing portion of the county. In
this devastated area were some of the
oldest and best orchards of the county,
and just before the storm, gave indi
cations of a most bountiful yield of ap
ples, but after the storm, scarcely an
apple was left.
The damage to the county is vari
ously estimated. Your correspondent
now places the loss at not less than a
quarter of a million dollars.
The Hon. L. G. Todd is one of the
largest farmers of the county; his home
lies in the southeastern part.
In conversation with him on Satur
day, your correspondent was informed
that his crops were a total loss, and
that his tota. loss would approximate
?10,000. The Hon. Lawson Sheldon is
also one of the large farmers on the
Weeping Water, as is also Mr. Isaac
Pollard of the same place.
Their crops are a total loss and each
of them aggregate a sum equal to that
of Mr. Todd.
The course of the storm leaves the
western part of tlie county and the
northeastern portion comparatively
unharmed. Altogether, it is the worst
storm that ever struck Cass county.
Your correspondent has been a wit
ness of the ravages of the grasshopper,
but has never known anything to com
pare with the hail storm of last Fri
day. The large farmers will be able to pull
through by drawing on their accumu-
j Jated resourcei. but the farmer who
j had his ail, including a livelihood for
jhis family, inxested in his crops, will,
ri" doubt, sec pinching times hefoie
I another crop can be raised.
There is a large amount of old min
still in t!i' county, much of it in t he
desolated district, and this will prove
a material aid to those who are foitu
note enough to have it.

The Law Being Violated.
Notwithstanding the complaints in
some parts of the state of illegal
shooting of prairie chickens, Chief
(lame Warden Carter reports that the
complaints were not so numerous in
July of this year as they were in June
of last year. He attributes this to
the liberality of the amended game
law which provides that the opensea
san shall begin September 1 instead ( f
October 1, as formerly, says the Lin
coln Journal. In some counties the
special game wardens have called pub
lic attention to the liberality of the
law and asked people to observe it. In
these counties the specials report that
there is no illegal shooting. Warden
Carter lias received reports of an unu
sually large number of ducks hatched
in Nebraska. These reports come
from the northwest and along the
Platte river. Mr. Carter says he saw
fully 5,000 young in lakes within a
space of ten miles in Platte and Mer
rick counties. The large amount of
water it the spring was favorable to
nesting and prairie chickens by in
stinct nest on high land when the sea
sons are wet and are not injured by wet
weather. Mr. Carter predicts that
duck and chicken shooting will be bet
ter this fail than ever was known in
Nebraska. The new law provides that
during the month of September no one
shall have more than ten chickens in
his possession in any one day. The
season closes November 'M. The sea
son for ducks opens September 1 and
closes April 1.1. Quail can be legally
killed from November 1.1 to Novem
Injuring the Bridges.
Burlington main line steel bridges
are being damaged these days by the
refrigerator traffic, according to a con
struction foreman, says the Lincoln
Journal. Refrigerators loaded with
meatpassoverthe.se bridges in solid
trains,droppingsalt water as they pass
the salt water coming from the meat
and ice. Nothing in railroad experi
ence rusts steel bridge like salt water.
To overcome this the Burlington ex
pects soon to begin the manufacture
of concrete covers for their bridges.
These covers resemble very much the
concrete sidewalks, covering the
bridges entirely. They protect the
understructure from moisture of every
kind, and will last as long as a steel
Another Masher "Smashed."
Ginger and justice are too strong
combination for goo-goo eyes.
Another masher has been slapped in
the face and punched by the fair vic
tim of ogling and fined fifty dollars by
the court at St. Louis. The saiutory
influence of such summary treatment
if rigorously continued will be to put
goggles on all our handsome males.
Bring in a supply as there are a few
'brave" young galoots who will need
them soon, if our girls have the
courage they ought to have.
