The Nebraska City distillery caught on Ore while all the firemen were at KedOak, la., attendins a tournament. Citizen turned out and put out the fire, which did but slight damage. Rome beets were polarized at the snga. . factory at Norfolk that showed 18 3-4 per cent. This is the highest test yet shown, but everything Indicate a good yield ot ugar all around. . The life of Dr. Malnhard, who commit ted suicide In Syracuse, seems to have been shrouded In mystery prior to bit coming to Nebraska. He is supposed to bare been a political exile from Uertuany n 1848 or 184U. The sheriff of Thayer county has cap tured L. J. Shaddock, who so brutally as saulted a 13-ycarold daughter of John Walters, near Helson, more than ft year go. He was working for a farmer in southern Texas. A man calling himself "Rev. C H.

A shelf in a Harrison drug store fell and the bottles containing muriatic and sulphuric acid broke.

Baker ot Stromsburg has been arrested charged with sending obscene matter through the mails to the Polk County bank iu answer to a notification from the bank that his note tor ti5 was due. The epistle was sent to the authori ties at Washington, hence his arrest. The outcome of the case is watched with much interest, as Mr. linker is one of the wealth - lest farmers in Polk county. Rev.

Father Hamilton was more than 80 years of age and had spent almost his en tire life among the Indians, having teen with the Omahas for nearly forty years. Mike Schloslor of Dunbar shot his wife in the throat on account of jealousy. He was arrested and lodged in jail at Nebras ka City. The woman will probably recover.

On city property there were thirty-one filed, amounting to 15,614.85, and nine released, which amounts to fJ.B93.00. This shows an Increase in the indebtedness ot city property of 12, 939.17. A large number ot the mortgages given were for the purchase of new land by the farmers. Thrashing Is enough advanced to show that Valley county never had such a crop as now, and, it general, will entitle Ne braska to be called the garden of the na tion. One farmer offered his farm six months ago for 815 au acre and hns now thrashed thirty-six bushels of whei t U the isreand sold it in the field for 75 cents, making the gross receipts 127 an acre. An other thrashed eighty bushels of barley and sold it tor 35 cents, making l-Js an acre. Corn is enormous. Jack Gallagher, a thief confined in the Keva Paha county jail at Springviev, made a desperate attempt to escape the other day. His wife had been in from the country to visit him and left her team at the jail, unharnessing one horse, and when Armes, the deputy, opened the door at noon to give him his dinner Gallaghe knocked him down with a chain and un dertook to make his escape by mounting one of the horses. Armes, however, got to his feet and fired at Gallagher, whom he missed and hit the horse which he was trying to mount. Gallagher then took to the prairie on foot, but was capturea in side of halt an hour by men on horseback. Gallagher was returned to Jail, the ball taken from the horse's leg and Mrs. Gal . lagher sent home with instructions not to visit her husband again. cuvnmtpstinn against e.n Claires in terests.

THE UNION PACIFIC. IfMtiaf the Creditors' Commit!. The rioaaelal Frobl.m Still Vasolved. New Yort, Sept 22 A meeting of the creditors' committee of the TJnicn Pacific was held. It was agreed to de fer action on tbs plan for week. If the company can, on Saturday or be fore, show that they have obtained the signatures of all the creditors to the proposition to extend tbs floating debt, or will provide cash to pay off the cred itors who refuse to resign them, the plan will be declared operative by the committee. Several of the creditors in this city, as well as number in Boston, have so far refrained from agreeing to the extension. It is not expected that a syndicate will be formed to provide the cash necessary to payoff these creditors, but the collateral notes which are not accepted by creditors may be taken by individuals. One of the members of the creditors' committee said: "The problem is ret to be solved, but it is much nearer a solution today than has ever been before." it New Uirjcla Beeords. Peoria, Ills., Sept.

The above named company U prose cutins; sn enterprise which is of great Importance to the people of this state, viz: tho manufacture of binding twine from Kentucky or American hemp raised here. The company was incor porated la 18-8, with a pai l up capital cfltO.OUO. Its ollicers are Wilson Rey nolds, president; Fred Meyer, vice-president; O. H. P. Shrhvr, secretary; W. E. Saiails, treasurer; M. Gerotne, man ager. The twine manufactured by this com pany is of a superior grade, and works in iho binding machines as well m the standard, jute, manilla, or any other kind. The output of the tactory f or this year was 550,000 pounds. For 1892 the output will be 1,000,000 pounds. Tbe company has grown this year 22,000 acres of hemp. This hemp is grown on land for which the company pays 12.50 to 13.00 rental. The yield per is about two tons of cured hemp. The company pays (0.00 per ton for the cured hemp. It will be seen from the above that thero is not much of a bonanza for the farmer in growing the hemp for sale, though it may add one to the crops which he may grow at a living profit. Grown fot the libre aloue, hemp is not a'l exhausting nor exacting crop. The main labor is in the preparation of the land, which needs to be none in the uch manner, iue seen should no sown wun the press drill, vt ben ready for harvest it is cut with a mowing machi&e and left upon the ground for the woody parts to be rotted by the action of the sun ana rain, wnen it is raweu auu loaded the same as hay. 1 wo tons per aero of the cured fibre is theyiold under the most favorablo conditions. The total cot of the manufacturingr plant at Fremont was between t'Jj.OOO snd $10,000. Tins plant embraces two distinct kinds of machinery, one for mukine tho hemp into U v , and the other for nieking the tow into twine. The latter is by all odds the most expensive, as the cost of tho tow machinery is only from $2,200 to 13,000. A tow mill may be set up in any neighborhood, aud the tow be teparated and shipped to. tho twine mill. Tho Fremont company has a tow mill nt North liend, and another on the Godfrey farm eight miles east of Fremont, in addition to the ono at Fro mont. The manufacture of hemp twine by this company is done entirely by ma chine, Mr. Jerome, the manager, being the inventor of the process aud the machinery. Their twine will run from sou to om feet to the pound, and tensile strength is from DO to 120 pounds, which is greater than any other fiber manufactured. These irontletnen are uttcrlv ODUOsed to trusts of any kind, and are looking to the farmers ot this stnto to make tins factory what it should be, a help to them selves and a saving to the fttraiers rf the state. This is an enterorize which cannot fail to uioet the approval of all Nebraskans wh' desire to diverry larni crops ana build ud borne Industries. It is an in dustry in which he raw material and the finished product are not only pro duced but sold and consumed in the same community. In this fact are found all the economic elements oi prosperity If the finished uroduct can be sold at s price that will pay all parties a fa'r equivalent for their labor and the use of their capital prosperity must be the re sult. If all the twine annually consumed thl state oould be manufacturo-i here. lm-on nmrtir.it rif mftnAv Bent ftWAV would be retained to enliven our busi ness ventures. Certainly all who are Interested in the welfare of Nebraska will wish this Fremont enterprize the greatest success. Resolutions Blkwell. Keb., Sept. 5, 1891.

With Pressure Rollers for Covering and Packing Soil Over the Seed. DESIGNED WITH ESPECIAL VIEW TO LIGHTNESS OF DRAFT. The Penalty of Success, "Did you ever see the wife of a siif cessful man?" I am tempted to ask, when some one points out to me the shining lights of these two friends of mine. Not that the men are brutal, ill-tempered or exceptionally irritable; rather the roverse is true of them; they are amiable enough. Yet their unconquerable Belf-absorntion has made them anything but boon com panione. Their hours ol labor or of research are prolonged unreasonably, with intervals of moodiness some times of utter silence. The bubble they follow is ever danciii;; before tneir eyes; uie iury oi pursuit is au-in-all, and life apart from that has lost its charm. Their wives share in the triumph of course, anil why should they complain? They do not. Like the Dutchman's wife upon his death bed, they are resigned becau; they have to bo. It is only between the lines of their patient faces that one may read the wish of tho heart for the old days to come back when things were otherwise.
