Iul Coiiticlerattle Damage.
This vicinity was visited by a small
sized cyclone Friday aDd as a
result various out-buildings, fences,
chimneys and mfs were scattered
proinisCMnsly around by the tierce
gale At ab ut half past six o'clock
the sky suddenly became a heavy
leaden color, and the wiud blew so
strong that it was scarcely safe to ven
ture out. The air was filled with fly
ing debris, rain aud mud, and for a
couple of hours the elements had full
sway. The tall smoke stack of Reisers
roller mills was blown down during
the storm, and several sign boards and
fences were carried a considerable dis
tance, and the tin rojf of the Leonard
block was blown off. and a number of
.window panes weie broken in variou
'houses The-.total damage to property
in this city will probably amount to
one hundred dollars.
The storm appears to have been con
flued to thi taction of the state, as
tte morning papers did not chronicle
any serious rfrsult elsewhere.
Mnt IVeuliar Accident.
A report was received at Burlington
headquarters yesterday of a peculiar
accident that occurred the other day
about five miles west of Otis. Two
cars on freight tiain No 150 were de
railed. Tney were two empty box
cars and were situated in the middle
portion of the train They ran aloug
off the track for several miles. Con
siderable damage was done to the
track, but the cars went bumpina
along, the couplings holding good, ana
escaped any injury. The dropping of
a broken brafce shoe was the cause ol
the accident. The train officials are
trying to figure out just bow more
serious refills were escaped Bee.
Iloldrege tart For Hie Kant.
The sudden departure of General
Manager Iloldrege of the Burlington
for the east has, in railroad circles,
given greater force to the rumor that
the B irlingtnn would soon take con
trol of the Omnha & St Louis railroad.
A firt the rumor of such a move was
looked upon as a mere cauard, but
auniiK uif im two uajo .u- iixj. le

something in the m-ttter has grown
considerably. A number of local rail
way men, w ho keep pretty close tabon

north fide of the river, killed a large
aoo.-e Wednesday . 'He was turprised
when lie picked it up to find a neatly
tinted leather harness on Mr. Goose
and troai appearance it had been worn
a long time. It was made from a
w ide strip of leather, one end being
split in two strips. These run back
between its legs and fastened with
trps into a ring over its back. It is
probable that it has at some time been
used as a decoy and broke loose but
could not free itself from the closely
fitted harness. John says be has
killed all kiuds and sizes of geese, but
this is the first one he ever captured
with a harness. Papillion Times.

AT ST. PETER'S OATI5,
Two strangers came unto the gate,
Where Rood M. Petter nodding sale.
The one was sleek and round and fat.
And wore the latest style of hat.
Ilia garments, too, were tailor made
Of finest wool that could not fade.
Bis hands were white, his fingers shone
With many a ring and precious strne.
lie first approached the Saint and bowed
With distant air and manner proud,
"I am," he said, "Fitzgerald Browne,
Come to receive my starry crown.
I walked, but much against my will.
Up that long road and stony hill.
May I enquire why it is thus.
There Is no carriage 6ent for us :
Of course you know my standing, sir.
How did this awkward thing occur?"
St. Peter answered, "Sir, I fear
You will be most unhappy here.!'
The saint sun-eyed bis ample girlh.
"I had the finest church on earth,"
He said with most complacent air,
"None but the wealthy worshiped there.
The altar rail was gold inlaid.
The floor and columns were of j ade ;
The windows shone with rainbow hue.
Aud richest music floated through
But that is past, I'd like a place
Close up beside the throne of Grace
Unlock the gate and let me in.
For I am wholly free from sin."
But Pe'er rose with cold disdain
nd pointed to the house of Pain,
Go learn," he said, "they do not Doast
Who love the Lord and serve him most.
Thy purse-proud friends aud kindred dwell
Within the ebon walU of hell."
And 6ent him forth with faithful guide
Into the flaming gates and wide,
Then turning to the one w ho stood
With drooping head and ashen hood.
He said : 4 'What reaeon canst thou give
That thou sbouldst enter here and live?"
The second man was gaunt and white,
His eyelids drooped before his sight.
His garments hung in tatters thin,
Scarce hid the fleshless form within.
His hands were calloused, bent and seamed.
On them no shining jewel gleamed.
His voice was low and mild and sweet,
Not to command, but to entreat.
He said, "1 come, my spirits grieves.
With nothing in my hands but leaves.
I plead no virtues of my own,
I isk no Keat beside the throne,
I am not great, I am not good,
I cou d not do the things 1 would ;
I am a sinner weak and sore
Nor hope to enter Heaven's door
Except through Him who died for me
Upon the cro.'-s of Calvary."
And Peter said, "In Jesus' name
Was none refused who ever came."

press, to decide on a uniform pro
nunciation of the name of this town.
For some reason there seems to be a
diversity of opinion as to the correct
pronunciation. Authorities agree that
the accent should be on the first syl
lable, and other authorities agree that
it should be on the second, and a few
wild-eyed authorities agree that it
should be on both. This breeds a
great deal of confusion.
