Iadk-atns a Greater urea of Conserve.
tUm Overdraft Kapldly Decreasing
Consolidated Statement of Incorporated,
Private and Savings Banks,, Nob., Aug. 12. The quar
terly report of the state banking board
has been completed by Secretary R. H.
Townley. The report shows the con
dition of state banks at the close of
business June 30. As compared with
the report of March 28 there is no ma
terial change in the amount of capital
stock, general deposits, loans and dis
counts, and cash or other resources
and liabilities. The number of banks
has fallen from 441 in March to 438 at
the close of business June 30. This de
crease accounts for a slight decrease
in liabilities and resources. The gen
eral deposits are now 513,207,338 as
compared with 43.799,059 in March.
Cash on hand is 51,283,179 while in
March It amounted to 81,375,506.
A notable increase is shown in our
drafts, the amount having been re
duced from 1176,027, as shown in the
last report, to 594,060, indicating that
more conservative methods are being
instituted by Nebraska bankers.
When Mr. Townley became secretary
he sought to reduce the item of over -drafts
to a minimum and in that work
the state board has given him its sup
port. In this particular item Nebraska
compares well with adjoining states.
Iowa banks recently reported over
drafts aggregating 5500,000, and the
showing received much unfavorable

Seventy-five Men Walk Out of the Tlnshop
at South Omaha.
Omaha., Neb., Aug. 12. Seventy-five
men in the tinshop of the Cudahy
packing house at South Omaha yester
day walked ont because they were de
nied a raise in wages. This action af
fects the lard and can goods depart
ments and unless differences are set
tled at once these will have to shut
down for want of material to work
The benefits accruing from the Bur
lington's excursion of eastern real es
tate men are beginning to show. As
sistant General Passenger Agent Smith
has received a letter from Jerry Cox
of Wyoming, 111., stating that he would
leave there Sunday night with six men
who are coming to Nebraska to buy
farms. They will probably settle near
Holdrege, although this is not yet
known. Another letter received asks
for literature about Nebraska farming
lands, and also samples of the products
for a county fair in Illinois, where
there are a number of men who wish
to come to this state. The general
belief is that there will be a great' in
cursion of settlers this year.

With Bach Agencies Biff Dictionary
Was Enneeessnry.
A good story comes from Meeker
county, this state, and has to do with a
well-known country-school district
there, says the Minneapolis Journal.
When It came time last summer to hire
a teacher the local board discovered
that there were two applicants, both
young men. As to salary, there was no
difference between their bids, but the
second one Insisted that if he were em
ployed the board should provide a dic
tionary for the schoolroom, The first
one made no such demand and said
that he would be able to get along with
out a dictionary. As he expressed It,
It was only useful In the matter of
defining words and giving their "pro
nunciation." Ho. 1 got the school.
Last week the board made Its first visit
to the building. Everything went well
for the first fifteen minutes, but finally
a red-headed, freckle-faced youth In the
rear f the room held up his right hand
and snapped his fingers in a very ener
getic manner.
"What is 't. Charlie?" asked the
"I want to know how to pronounce a
word," said Charlie.
"Spell it," replied the teacher.
. Charlie, in a loud voice, spelled out
the word "vocabulary."
"Vo-ca-bull-ary," responded the
teacher, placing the accent on the
"bull' and he added, as to its meaning:
"Appertaining to horned cattle."
The board cut short its visit and Is
now looking for a new teacher and
getting ready to buy an unabridged
New Mummifying Process.
The London Lancet reports the in
vention by Sig. Carlo Vercellonl of a
process by which a dead body Is her
metically sealed in a coffin from the
walls of vhich certain chemical ex
halation1) uxe slowly and continuously
liberated. The gases, and moisture
given off as the result of decomposition
are thereby counteracted and absorbed
and the body is gradually transformed
into the mummified state, being per
fectly dry and retaining every feature
as in life. The dead body of a child re
duced to this condition Is on view In
Milan! The head, body and limbs of
the child are admirably preserved in
their natural relief, the hair is blonde
as in life and a look of repose charac
terizes the ensemble, though the com
plexion of the body Is of that yellow
ish copper color peculiar to mummies.
A Piscataquis Hermit.
The pedagogical hermit of the White
Wilderness, northern Pisbataquls coun
ty, says the only book he possesses or
reads is a copy of Wordsworth's poems.
With such a mechanical regimen it is
small wonder that the recluse has
wheels in his head. With the excep
tion of a Jar for cooking beans and a
vessel in which he fries his fish, this
schoolmaster hermit has absolutely no
furniture nor even a blanket to keep
himself warm in winter. His cabin is
surrounded by dense woods and 200 or
300 yards off Is a stream which sup
plies him with fish and water. Fish
and the beans from his garden form
his only diet with Wordsworth's
verses, which aren't very filling.
Lewi8ton (Me.) Journal. .
. Surprise All Around.
A millionaire railway king has a
brother who Is hard of hearing, while
he himself is remarkable as having a
very prominent nose. Once the railway
king dined at a friend's house, when he
sat between two ladies, who talked to
him very loudly, rather to his annoy
ance, but he said nothing. Finally one
of them shouted a commonplace re
mark and then said, in an ordinary
tone to the other:
"Did you ever see such a nose in
your life?"
"Pardon me, ladies," said the mil
lionaire, "it'a my brother v,ho is deaf.'
Imagine the horror of the lady. New

Given Food Through Hi Nostrils.
Otis Hurley, the young man of Day
ton, Ohio, who was committed to the
asylum and subsequently discharged
cured, and recommitted to Jail to an
awer a charge of bicycle stealing, is
again fasting and refuses to eat. Hur
ley pursued that course formerly and
was saved from death by starvation by
forcibly injecting food into his stom
ach through his nostrils. He is men
tally weak and has an irresistible
mania for Bteallng bicycles.
' The Polype.
Even the polype knows the difference
between living and dead infusoria and
will contend with other polype for Its
food. Von Hartman says that if living
infusoria be placed in water within a
few lines of the polype the latter per
ceives it how, cannot be Baid and
produces a whirlpool with its arms in
order to draw it within its reach. On
the other hand, it pays no attention to
dead infusoria, as small vegetable or
ganism or a particle of dust.

Iadlaa Nobles Who Are Ed seated la
The nobles and princes thus trained
do not become Indian nobles and
princes, says the London Spectator.
In a majority of cases they develop
into Englishmen of color. Although
their faiths are never interfered with
and pains are taken to preserve all pe
culiarities of caste, something which
they nor their tutors could thoroughly
explain divides them thenceforward
from their subjects and dependents,
making them almost foreigners In their
hereditary estates and developing in
some a profound melancholy or sense
"unsatisfaction," if there were such
word; in others, an inner scorn for
those among whom they have to live,
and In all an Inability to play the part
most to be desired, that of men capable
of reconciling west and east and slow-
leading their subjects toward a
higher though still an Asiatic civiliza
tion. We heard a very few years ago
the complaint uttered by one of them,
most successful collegian, to an Eng
lish friend, and could not but think1 it
very pathetic. "I am," the prince said,
a hopelessly isolated man. No one in
my family or within my dominion un
derstands my thoughts nor is there any
one to whom I can unfold myself. My
house" or as we should say, the ladies
of my house "regard me when I speak
with stralnlrg ears, as if they were
trying to catch the sounds of a foreign
language. I have no friend and can
have none. My ministers, though they
obey me and look up to me, regard me
as I should regard a sunyasee, as ruled
by motives which they do not compre
hend, and warn me that the changes I
should like best to introduce would
shake my authority to its base. I am
consumed all day by ennui; I can find
no enjoyment in the national amuse
ments, and I can eee that the English
amusements which I still enjoy strike
my people as both tiresome and undig
nified." Our report Is as nearly ver
batim as we can manage, and the
prince who spoke thus, after governing
well for a year or two, gave up the
struggle with his fate, took to drink
ing, abandoned the reins of his admin
istration to whoever would take them,
and, but for an occurrence romantic
even for Asia and utterly outside an
probabilities, would have ended by
ruining his estate which indeed he did
render, in his search for excitement,
nearly insolvent. His was, it may be,
an exceptionall history, but the cir
cumstances which preyed upon his
mind must prey also upon a majority
of his comrades, for they would prey
upon English lads of the same position
educated throughout youth In for
eign habits, foreign literatures, foreign
ways of thought and, above all, for
eign aspirations.
Old-Fashion Clerical Jokes.
Few things impressed one more, as
boy, than the singular notion the
wooden theologians departed had of
what was a joke and. an incisive Baying.
The word was generally pronounced as
though spelled "insissive." "Did you
hear," said one of them to myself, being
youthful parson, ."of the tremendous
hit that Dr. Bahoo gave to Holofernes
MacPusher? He said to Holofernes:
'Are not you the minister of St. Silas
Fixings?' 'Yes, 'And your brother of
St. Ananias?' 'Yes.' 'And your father
of St. Sapphira?' 'Yes.' 'And your un
cle of Glenstaggers?' 'Yes.' 'And your
cousin of Benstodgie?' 'Yes.' Then
Dr. Bahoo proceeded: 'I hope you may
have as many friends In the church
above as you have in the church be
low.' It was very cutting and wonder
fully witty." Then my Informant ut
tered a loud guffaw, repeatedly ex
claiming "Ha! ha!" or words to that
I listened In silence but sought to put
on an expression of due appreciation of
a humorous sally, for if I had uttered
my real feeling, which was that here
was a very kind and good wish for
Holofernes, but that I could not for my
life see anything either jocular or cut
ting in the words used, I should have
made an assured enemy.

to write a series of patriotic songs which are
hardly surpassed by any in our literature for
loftiness of motive and real merit from a literary

necessarily be present before any song touches
the chord ot popularity. They are remarkable
for their fervid patriotism and broad humanity.
In fait, if the reopie s party rises 10 inepainowc

ultimate success as a party. The songs strike

Is more and more impressing itself
upon the public, as the years go by, as
being the great park of the land. The
strong feature of it is the fact that it is
not a man made park, True enough
man has built roads and bridges and ho
tels in order that he may see the park,
but he has not yet tried his hand at con
structing new-fangled geysers, or re
adorning or rescuipturiug the Grand
Canyon of the Yellowstone. These are
as God left them. There, too, the elk,
bear, deer and other animals are not en
closed in wire fences. Tbey wander free
and unfretted whethersoever they will.
Man's handiwork is but little seen and
the park is the grander forit. Send Chas,
