POLITICAL, PERSONAL AND PERTINENT.
Talmage, Otoe county, was visited
by a conflagration Monday night
that wiped out the four frame build
ings. The lire originated in a build
ing occupied as a millinery store. A
bucket brigade was soon formed but
the flames had gained such headway
that nothing could be done except to
try and save the property adjoining.
Tne flames soon communicated with
adjoining buildings and in a short
time four buildings were burned.
They were all frame and were owned
by Henry Boyd and occupied as a resi
dence and confectionery; II. II. Childs,
used as a millinery store; J. II. Fer
guson and occupied by a photograph
gallery; Fred Uerlet as a residence.
The loss will amount to about $3,000,
and the insurance about one-third that

Usually a man who happens to get in

board, for instance can show more of
a selfish and narrow spirit than in any
other capacity. On that account it is
sometimes questioned whether it
wouldn't be better to pay members of
that board salaries. They might then
not be so persistent in trying to foist

Omaha is considerably excited just
now over the fact that Henry Bolin,
the city treasurer, is a defaulter to the
extent of some 815,000. Wine, women

are valued at $3,500.
Dr. Hay finally 'Flrl.'
Dr. Luther Abbott of Fremont took
charge of the Lincoln insane hospital
yesterday morning as superintendent
of that institution. The supreme court
handed down an opinion Tuesday
ousting Dr. Hay in favor of Dr. Abbot,
whoso appointment by the governor
was confirmed by the senate. This
ends a long drawn out and somewhat
exciting controversy. Dr. Hay admits
that he is beaten, is glad it is over and
gave up possession peaceably yester
day. Dr. Abbott was telegraphed for
and arrived from Fremont at 5:50. He
went to the asylum in an exceedingly
happy frame of mind and was met by

Newspaper readers are familiar with
the dispute, as it has been thoroughly
aired in state papers. In brief Dr
Hay alleced that he had a rieht to
serve for a term of six years and that
the governor's removal for cause was
insufficient and that charges preferred
were not proven. In fact the doctor
made little attempt to meet the

was not the proper person to try him
on charges preferred.

An inch of rain all over Nebraska
means a tremendous downpour of
water. To cover one square mile of
ground an inch deep requires nearly
17,500.000 gallons of water, weighing
72,635 ton3. When rainfall is suffi
cient it is vastly superior to irrigation
because it brings so much water, even
with a moderate shower. An irriga
tion ditch is all right as far as it goes,
but its beneficence is necessarily lim
ited to a very small area. Lincoln

Upon an upland plateau, half a mile
south from the valley of Salt Creek, on
the lino of the B. & M. railway, and a
mile east of the western limits of Cass,
lies the pretty village of Greenwood.
Sixteen years ago, or thereabouts, the
townsite was laid out and it is a ques
tion whether it got its Baptismal name
from green prairie sod which sur
rounded the place or from popular pio
neer merchants, John S. or Phil Green,
who still flourish on its chief business
corner. Be that as it may the early
residents appreciated the injunction of
the author of Arbor day, and have
planted trees so persistently that the
streets and the lots of the residence
portion of the town are nicely set off
with shade and ornamental trees, their
dark green foliage making a most at

Monday a specimen of the beetle
which has been destructive to grapes
in the past four years. The beetle
lives on the leaves of the grape vine
for about two weeks and then makes
its way down into the ground and lays
its eggs on the root of the vine. The
egg, wheu it hatches, produces a worm
about two inches long w hich immedi
ately attacks the roots. It bores
through the root, leaving only a thin
shell. In about three years the vine
dies, apparently without cause.
