THE JOURNAL. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY, PL ATTSMO UTH, NEBRASKA. Jealousy is the thistle In the garden of love. Harry Hayward will remain In Min nesota till November at least. The campaign for honest state and city government thrives on the corses of its enemies. Queen Victoria is worth $175,000,000, and she is a widow. Respectfully ie ferred to Mr. Depew. The Sultan of Turkey, with the aid ot his numerous wives, contrives to spend annually $30,000,000. The man who blows in the gun to see if it is loaded has been succeeded by the man who rocks the boat. The Japanese are working them selves up to the modest belief that one Jap can lick five Russians. Banker Lewis of Ohio began life poor, but kept forging ahead until he was $400,000 ahead of the game. Judging from some of the game he bags, we should say that Cupid must do most of his hunting blindfolded. A female footpad has turned up In Kansas City. This may be the New Woman we have been looking for bo long. Russell Sage admits that his memory is failing. That may partially account for his failure to remember to be decent to Laidlaw. Should Bismarck die, young William would come out and say to the Ger mans: "Weep not for Bismarck; you see I'm here." The most horrible Cuban war stories continue to come from Florida. Before long they will be putting them up In Connecticut wrappers. The Philadelphia Times wants to bet that, no matter what comes, the head of the New Woman will be found rest ing on a man's shoulder. An old bachelor editor says "a baby Is a howling success." He ought to have added, the fellow who never had one of his own at home is not. An esteemed contemporary has dis covered that there is a large demand for small coin. This belongs to the large band of "important if true" stor ies. It is said so perfect is the construc tion of the bicycle wheel, that it will carry with safety a larger load In pro portion to its weight than any other wheel made. An Atchison man of 60, who has given so much to churches all his life that he is poor, will start out in the fall to win a few dollars back by becoming a boy preacher. It would be a very unfair thing for Cuba to use the formidable means of re taliation on this country for its anti filibuster position which she possesses in the imported cigar. It is not surprising that Richard j PrnVor cVinnlH Vi tVia mncf flutfoTinir I things to say about the British system of government. He came pretty near being a monarch himself. The making of collections of posters Is not a new idea. Balzac, forty years ago, wrote in "Scenes from Parisian Life"; "You, who can drink no longer from the chalice called through all time the 'cup of pleasure, take up the task of collecting something, no matter what. (People have ere now collected hand bills), and you will recover your ingots of joy in small change. A hobby, a mania, is pleasure transformed into the shape of an idea." Miss Remie Londonderry of Boston, the round-the-world bicyclist, who ar rived at El Paso, Texas, last week says she has declined over one hundred and fifty offers of marriage since she start ed on her trip. During her journey she has saved $1,500. There are lots of men who are willing to marry any woman who has demonstrated that she could make a good living for them. From Avon Park, Fla., comes an or iginal idea for ending dull times. The editor of its weekly Idea, quoting the magical phrase of 1878, "The way to re sume is to resume," asks his readers, and through them the whole country, to unite on a "Revival Day," say August 31, by which time let those with Idle money decide into which of the many promising channels they shall "turn it loose." Let every dollar possible on this day be put into circulation; see how many debts can be paid; how many new enterprises started, and how much business consummated. The impetus thus given, he believes, will put an end to hard times. Yes, blessed, is the peacemaker. It is reported that Hon. John W. Foster is to receive a fee of a quarter of a million dollars for the aid he gave the Chi nese government in settling terms of peace with Japan. So much for listen ing to the Chinese tael of woe. One of the charges brought against the bloomer girl is the uncertainty with which she is viewed when she leaves her wheel. At a distance of 30 paces it cannot be decerned with any surety of being, correct whether "she is going or coming. OVEB THE STATE. Rev. John Kkhxs of Lexington, 86 years old, died last week. Chase county got a grand rain and everything in the crop line is promis ing. John S. McCormick, one of Omaha's early pioneers and freighters, died last week. Efforts are making in Omaha to ap prehend an organized band of dog thieves. Tiik railroads have granted & rate of one fair for the round trip to the Hast ings reunion. Mrs. Van Warrrn of Fremont yawned so wide that she dislocated her jaw on both sides. Hastings is making extensive prepa rations for the state reunion, which occurs this month. Oscak Brown, a gray-haired man, is in jail at Fremont, charged with as sault on a seven-year-old girl. Dundy county will hold a fair this fall at Benkelman, October 10, 11 and 12. The county will also make a dis play at the state fair. Mrs. Crawford of Beatrice shot at her husband with intent to kill. She was discharged, it being shown that she acted in 6elf-defense. Dl-rixo a storm at Paxton the house of John Iiichul was struck by light ning, tearing off every particle of the plastering in a new addition. A committee of Lincoln citizens has gone to work to raise 810,000 for the purpose of putting Lincoln park in condition for semi-annual race meet ings. Col. Jordan, formerly of Nebraska, and at one time editor of the Omaha Republican, died last week at Wanbay, S. D. He left Beatrice about three years ago. Willard Lashtrv, aged 8, of Beaver City, was drowned in a small pond near town. He and some companions were fishing and he fell from a high bank into the water. a Mrs. Sadie Crawford at Plattsmouth shot her husband the other day while he was pursuing her with a club.

Polk county's relief committee has just made its final report, having been in the harness from February 3 until August 3. During that time there were over 400 families in the county that received aid. The largest number of persons receiving1 aid for any one month was 1..1S4. Judge William Aikins of Pawnee City, the only surving ex-probate judge under territorial government, now over IK) years old, is believed to be on his deathbed. He has been confined to the house several weeks, much of the time to his bed, unable to take nour ishment, except small quantities in liquid form, not enough to keep up his strength. Miriam McLaughlin of Tecumseh burned his hand in a shocking manner. He had a cloth bandage around his hand covering a gash, and in turning the gasoline on in a torch the flow was excessive and saturated the bandage. McLaughlin lit a match with the hand in that condition. The bandage was burned from his hand and the flesh on that member terribly cooked. Pat Sheedy, living on a farm four miles northeast of Clay Center, met with a very distressing accident. He was hauling grain from the field and in some manner one foot broke through the bottom of the hay rack, so that the leg was caught between some parts of the wagon. The team ran away and in turning rather short Mr. Sheedy's leg was broken, or rather crushed. It is thought the leg will be amputated. Bob Anderson and Lloyd Alexander, a couple of Hastings youths, broke the Sabbath by trying to break each oth er's faces. Anderson weighs 240 pounds and Alexander about 140.

Enjoy the fun and the freedom which the boys won by their valor on the field of battle. The Russian Thistle Law. The question of enforcing the provis ions of the Russian thistle law in west ern counties, says a Sidney dispatch, is fast becoming one of considerable im portance. There are many hundred thousand acres of vacant government land and educational lands in these western counties and. as the Russian thistle law makes no provision for the destruction of the thistles on such lands, there seems no way to meet the emer gency of the case. Several of the west ern counties have practically abandon ed the destruction of this pest and there seems to be no way out of theditliculty unless the general government comes to the rescue. The literal compliance with the provisions of the law means bankruptcy to all the western counties. . ' Coming Uurk to Nebraska. Norwich (Conn.) dispatch: Mrs Annie T. Gardiner, the missing Ne braska Christian endeavor delegate of Arcadia, Neb., who was found living as a domestic here in the family of Edward IL Lapiere, consented this morning to return home with J.

THE NAVY DEPARTMENT RECEIVES ADVICES FROM CHINA. DETROIT GOES TO CHE FOO. As That Place Is Further From the Seen of the Riots Than Shanghai, Wash ington Officials Ilelleve That the Attacks on American Mission aries Are Ended Infor mation Called For. Washington, Aug. 12. A telegram was received at the navy department to-day announcing that Commander Newell had sailed with the Detroit from Shanghai to Che Foo. This latter port is further fiom the scene of the riots than Shanghai, and the navy offi cials take. this as indicating that the United States authorities in China do not fear further outbreaks, especially in the reg'on near Shanghai.

NATURAL GAS OF AMERICA. The Supply Found in Many Sections, bat Steadily Decreasing- In Amount. Washington, Aug. 12. The natural gas industry is fully revieweil in the annual report of the geological survey. The most important gas fields now are those of Western Pennsylvania, West ern New York, Northwestern Ohio and Central Indiana, but gas has been found in commercial quantities also in Arkan sas, California, Illinois, Kansas, Ken tucky, Louisiana, Missouri, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming. The highest actually observed pres sure has been about 300 pounds to the square inch, closed pressure. In all districts the pressure has increased steadily and materially. Heretofore natural gas could be easily carried in pipes for long distances under its own pressure, but now in most places arti ficial means must be used to drive it to the place where it is needed. No statement of the amount of natural gas consumed has ever been given and the report says it is not possible to make one. The amount has been greatly reduced within the last few years by the cutting off of the enor mous waste that existed, while im proved appliances have doubled the efficiency of what is used. The total value of that consumed in lo94 was nearly $14,000,000. This is a steady decrease from 188S, when the value was 522,500,000. Missouri Chantaoqaa Plans for 1806. Skdalia, Mo., Aug 12.

FOR SILVER AT 16 TO 1- So Declare Missouri Democrats In Sta Convention. Pertle Springs, Ma, Aug. 8. The Missouri Democracy has declared with out equivocation for the free and un limited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. The strongest resolutions looking to that end were passed by the state convention amid a storm of cheers, and practically without a dis senting voice. Further yet, the con vention, by an overwhelming major ity, voted to reorganize the state com mittee, and nineteen new -members have been added to it, all considered to be heart and soul for the white metal. The fifteen old members whom, whether right ly or wrongly the silver men had considered committed to the sound money doctrine, 13 to 2, now finds itself purely an ornamental appen dage to a soaring majority. There are rumors that possibly thirteen of the old committee will decline to serve longer, but it is scarcely likely that they will resign, as that action would merely fix the silver men still more firmly in the saddle. In spite of these revolutionary proceedings the work of the convention has been char acterized by most remarkable har mony. If the convention faithfully represents the Democratic party of the state, then beyond question 75 per cent of the party are out and out silver men. The convention began its business with "Silver Dick" Bland at the helm. The organization was perfected with out friction and silver resolutions were drawn and adopted and the reorgani zation of the state central committee was decided upon by a vote of 493 to 63. The plan of reorganization agreed upon was that suggested by the con servatives, which called for the doub ling of the old committee, only four additional committeemen elected from the state at large by the convention were added. This makes the new com mittee certainly for silver, but as if this were not enough, the convention went further and so bound the new central organization by resolutions as to the conventions to be held next year, that even were it as hostile as possible to the white metal, its hostil ity would be futile. In the evening the convention sent greetings to the Democratic state con ventions in session in Mississippi and Iowa, exhorting them to stand firmly for free silver and 16 to 1. It also sent a personal tribute to Senator Joe Blackburn of Kentucky complimenting him on his fight for silver against over whelming odds. QUAY HEARD FROM.
