Browning, one of the members of his
church, and then made his escape,
furnishes one of he most curious
cases in criminal annals. There can
be little doubt that Carmlchael was
Insane when he committed the mur
der and at the time of his suicide.
His curious tale of the hypnotic
power of Browning and his reasons
for slaying him, makes a story as
thrilling and blood curdlin? as ever
Foe or IJulwer ec.Kvlved. No one can
readily believe the tale he tells of
Browing subjecting his mind to hyp
notism and compelling him to do
things, finally Attacking him ana
threatening to take his life. These
seem like the delusions of a broken
and wandering mind. But anyway
he probably did the best for the com
munity when he ended his career as
he was dangerous sane or Insane.

Tho action of the house commlttwe
on committees so far as Cass County
is concerned is thoroughly satisfac
tory to the democracy and tho people
of tho county generally. The several
members from this county have re
ceived excellent assignments on com
mittees and aro In ti position to be
the most influential members of the
house. This applies not alone to
Representative Bates of the majority
party but also to Representatives
Noyes and Smith of the minority,
both of these gentlemen securing fine
committees where they can do some
thing for tho welfare of the state.
Representative Bates secures tho
chairmanship of tho committee on
public printing, ono of the most Im
portant committees In the house and
a place much sought after. In addi
tion, he is the second member of tho
committee on corporations, another
excellent committeo and is also a

Tokyo, Jan. 12. Following the re

San Francisco, relative to matters now
pending before the California legisla
ture, Japanese newspapers here elab
orate upon the strained relations that
may arise through the passage of bills
and the enactment of laws forbidding
the ownerships of lands and the at

of the bills as a probability, and pro

The Asahl, the Jijl and the Nichl
Nlchi express surprise at what is
termed an evidence of unfriendliness
after the sincere effort on Japan's
part to prove her friendship toward

Japanese government for "falling Into

Afewdaysslnce Lawrence Stull, the
well known farmer living northwest
of the city, had a remarkable experi
ence with rabbits, the like of which
few persons have ever had. Mr.
Stull and his dog were out in his
ard when the dog started a rabbit,
n giving it chase the dog ran it Into
a hole and started to dig it out. Mr.
Stull noticed the animal and tried
to stop It but was not successful the
dog digging away until he came to
some boards several feet down ln the
earth. The boards covered Mr.
Stull's potato hole, a place he had
dug for storing his potatoes. The
hole was some six feet wide by ten
feet long. Becoming interested in the
matter, Mr. Stull concluded to help
the dog get his game and seeing that
the rabbit had gone Into the potato
hole, he closed the place where It had
gone Jn up and then he
went down Into the hole
through the regular entrance
When he got into the hole he was
astonished to find it Utterly alive
with rabbits. They swarmed about
hfcn and darted about the enclosure
in such numbers aa to make the gen
tleman believe he was "seeing
things." He- finally succeeded in
catching thirteen of them alive. This
was not a bad haul as they were big
fellows and fat as butter balls. After
making his catch he took them Into
bis houso In a sack and concluded to
have some fun with them. He took
all the furniture out of one room and
then turned the animals loose In it,
watching their frantic efforts to find
a way out. He said that they went
nearly to tho ceiling in their mad
attempts to escape. After enjoying
himself for some time watching them
ho captured them again and since
then has been living on rabbit, kill
ing them nsaneedod. Anyone having
