Somebody iu the east has solved the
sparrow problem. It has been discov
ered that nothing on earth compares
with fat sparrows when cooked in a
pot pie. Traps are set on the roofs of
houses and baited with bread crums
and mam, and a good trap will catch
fifty sparrows per day, supplying sev
eral families with pie.

There are plenty of men who object
to Friday's fine rainfall because it
"comes too late to save the corn.' It j
does not come too late, because there
is a large acreage of late corn in the
eight or ten dry counties in this part
of the state that will now make a full
crop and bring the total yield up to
nearly 50 per cent of the average. In
all the rest of the state, where the corn
was not injured by dry weather, this
rain will cause it to till perfectly and
make the total yield of the state quite
up to the average. Lincoln Journal.
At no time in their history have fra

and this is justly the case, for nowhere

shot at her husband four times, one of
the bullets striking his arm, another

knocked out some of his teeth, and
still Mr. Crawford informed the police
that he did not believe his wife
wanted to shoot him. Perhaps not,
but we believe the woman could be
convicted on circumstantial evidence.

Poor cattle have been used for some
time to defraud the government out of
some custom duties. The discovery
was brought to light by the arrest of a
prominent cattle buyer of North Da
kota for opium smuggling. For some
time certain cattlemen have been pur
chasing worn out oxen on the Canadian
side of the line and have wrapped
opium in tin foil and forced it down
the throats of the oxen. The oxen are
then driven across the line and a small
duty paid on them. After driving
them some distance beyond the custom
office the cattle were killed and the
opium recovered. This has been a
very profitable business, and the cus
tom officers have been at work for
some time running down the alleged
smugglers with the above result.

An exchange truthfully remarks:
"A father, talking to his careless
daughter, said: 'I want to speak to
you of vour mother. It may be that
you noticed a careworn look upon her
face. Of course it is not brought
there by any act of yours; still it is
your duty to chase it away. I want
you to get up in the morning and get
breakfast. When your mother comes
and begins to express surprise, go right
up to her and kiss her on the mouth.
You can't imagine bow it will brighten
her dear face. Besides, a owe her a
kiss or two. Away back, when you
were a little girl, she kissed you when
no one else was tempted by your fever
tainted breath and swollen face. You
were not as attractive then as you are
now. Through years of childish
S sunshine and shadows she was always
ready to cure by the magic of a moth
er's kiss, the little dirty, chubby hands
whenever they were injured in those
first skirmishes with the rough old
A Model Country Home.
There seems to be something in the
"lay of the land" or the direction of
its slope with reference to the pro
ductiveness of fruit trees. Either
this, or Providence is more bountiful
toward some people than others. As
the latter theory is hardly consistent
with the ordinary turn of affairs, the
former must be true.
These remarks have been called out
by a hasty visit to the orchard of Phil
lip Tritsch, seven miles west of town.
Surrounded by a beautiful grove of
tall willows.cotton woods and walnuts,
Mr. Tritsch's home and orchard stands
upon ground with a slope to the north
east. Some six acres are covered with
fruit trees, which have been planted
about fifteen years, and they are now
in a good healthy condition, the limbs
reaching out from fifteen to twenty-
feet and more than half covering the
ground, and of all the orchards in
Cass county this one appears to have
the most fruit to the tree this season.
The most of them are literally "loaded
down" with the choicest of apples, of
several leading varieties except the
trees bearing summer fruit, which has
just been gathered, barreled and
shipped by E. W. Black and P. E. Huff
ner. The trees have been well pruned
and are in excellent form. The whole
orchard may answer for a model for
other fruit raisers, and Mr. Tritsch is
entitled to credit for the suecess he has
attained. He also has a number of
cherry trees that bore heavily this
year. But the most astonishing sight
is his plum trees, of which he has a
dozen or more trees that are breaking
down with their loads of large, lus
ciou3, ripening fruit. It is worth go
ing miles to see.
A visit to the resideace of Mr.
Tritsch is a great pleasure. He has
an elegant home, beautiful pleasure
grounds, adorned with fine shrubbery
and an abundance of flowers, and
everything about the place indicates
care, cleanliness and order to a rare
A Successful Cheese Factory.
Several attempts at cheese making
have been made in this county, some
of which were for a time successf ul.but
all save one. it seems, have been aban
doned for some cause or other. The
one pronounced success in this line is
now carried on by ex-Senator Samuel
Thomas and his sons on the Thomas
farm, five miles northwest of town,
where cheese making is carried on on
scientific principles, and with uniform
results. Mr. Thomas is now handling
the milk from some fifty-five cows,
and his work is carried on in a build
ing where uniformity of heat can be
secured at all times.
Three years ago Mr. Thomas' resi
dence was burned, leaving the base

put over these aud the walls ctmeutf d
A boiler and engine elevates water and
heats it for use in the making of
cheese. Four cheeses of about twenty
five pounds each are produced at each
Not satisfied with the ordinary feed
ing of his cows, Mr. Thomas has con
structed what is called a silo- the walls
of three sides of which are composed
of heavv walls of stone twentv feet
h:gh aud 10x4S feet iu dimensions.
The walls of the stiucture also extend
to one side far enough to stable 100
head of cows, so that they can be fed
the ensilage from the silo with little
handling. A machine for cutting the
fodder is enroute from the factory now
and about Sept. 1 the work of filling
the silo will begin.
This is an experiment with Mr.
Thomas, but it has been so uniformly
successful elsewhere that he feels sure
of its success. The fodder is cut. from
the fields, hauled to the silo, where it
goes through the machine spoken of
and is then packed in its raw state into
this receptacle, and when it is full the
sides and top will be sealed up air
tight, and when winter comes it is
taken out and fed in its natural state,
being preserved perfectly, just jis
canned fruit is preserved. Mr.
Thomas thinks by feeding from the
silo he will be able to make cheese in
the winter as well as summer, and
The Juukn'al hopes he may succeed.
A Little lluy Srlouly Iujurel.
Yesterday afternoon the north
bound M. P. passenger train struck
and probably fatally injured little
four-year-old Frank Cecal on the Vine
street crossing near the depot.
The little fellow had been playing at
a neighbor's house and his sister was
sent after him. When they arrived
near the track the train was rapidly
approaching and the girl told the little
fellow not to cross the track until the
train had passed. The child either
did not hear the warning or paid no
attention to it, for he ran across the
track in front of the train. It is sup
posed that after getting over the track
he turned around to watch the train
and one of the passenger coach steps
struck him. The little fellow was
picked up nnconscious and carried
home and Dr. T. P. Livingston was
called. It was found that the bov's
skull was crushed at the back of his
head and he was otherwise injured.
Just how seriously the child is hurt
cannot yet be ascertained, but he is
probably fatally injured.
A Grand Welcome Home.
Misses Ethel and Alice Dovey,the
little daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Geo.
E. Dovey, returned home last Saturday
after a twelve months visit to Eng
land, where they have been receiving
lessons in vocal culture, under the
tutelage of the best masters that could
be procured and have met with great
success. They were accompanied home
by their grandmother, Mrs. C. S. Daw
son, who was with them during their
entire absence abroad.
A large crowd had gathered to re
ceive them, and as t he train pulled in
the High School band, which had
turned out, rendered the old familiar
air. "Home Sweet Home." Alighting
from the train they were escorted to a
carriage elaborately decorated with
American flags, and escorted by the

Au Unnatural Crime.
Constable H . G. Strong arrived in
town Thursday night having in charge
Charles Kellberg. a sixteen-year-old
boy, from Nehawka. Young Kellberg
is charged with the monstrous crime
of sodomy, and the offense is said to
have been committed on August 5th.
Win. Newman is the complainant, and
claims to have witnessed the deed.
Two other boys are said to be impli

He has regained consciousness and
was resting' easy today. -It was re

little fellow had died during the night,
but the report was fortunately not cor

The tenth convention of the Chris
tian Endeavor Cass county union, held
at Murray this week, was the largest
and most enthusiastic meeting of the
kind ever held iD the county and dem
onstrates to the public that the young
people of Cass county are most thor
oughly in earnest in their work for
"Christ and the Church."
A meeting of over 200 delegates
from a single county means more, per
haps, than we realize without giving
the subject more thought than we are
wont to do. These, together with a
much larger number unable to attend,
makeup quite an army, and no one
can estimate the vast influence for
good which will be accomplished by
these young people.
There were already twenty-one local
societies, senior and junior, in this
county union, and the junior society of
the Christian church of this city was
added. The various societies were
represented as follows: Murray U. P.
U., Sr., H4 ; Murray Christian, Sr., 119 ;
Otterbein V. B., Sr., 30 ; Weeping Wa

the subject "Thoughts on the Boston

of the same place, proved a most able
substitute. From beginning to end the
convention was a spiritual feast.

Several years atro I discovered a
slight falling and bleedingof thelower
bowel which increased and became
very distressing. I made inquiry as
tothe nature of the disease and learned
that I had a somewhat aggravated case
of Hemorrhoids or Piles. Was told of
several remedies and used them as di
rected, obtaining thereby some tem
porary relief. Not being satisfied with
such slight relief I cast about for a per
manent cure; when a friend directed
the use of the famous Magnet PiLE
Killeu. I used it. Immediate relief
from pain followed, and soon a com
plete cure was affected.
