SENSATIONAL JOURNALISM EE-

one of the seasonable dallies of
this era, the feat becomes superhuman,
writes Julian Ralph in Providence
Journal. Even if a man were to sell
his self-respect and vitiate his mind
and morals and pillory himself before
the public as a manager of such an un
wholesome product, he would have to
be a very ingenious, fertile and buoyant
person to accomplish the task for any
length of time. So well do the traders
in this sort of goods understand the
difficulties of the place that one of them
will not make a contract with his men,
and another does not hesitate to fling
his men away like sucked oranges a3
eoon as their freshness pales and their
vigor tires. They take on new men as
If they were brooms that wear smooth
after a little UBe, and then must be
thrown Into the ash barrel. While the
poor devils are new they must produce
enormous papers, filled with novelties.
They must originate such articles as
"Why Do Millionaires Dream?" or
"The Grandmothers of Famous Men,"
or "A List of the Actresses Who Have
Had More Than Three Husbands."
They must break down all privacy,
ridicule science, scoff at religion, ven
tilate all the vices, aggrandize the
notoriety seekers, make fun of reforms,
Invent bogus news, and get genuine
news by the methods of eavesdrop
pers and burglars.
These newspaper magnates of to-day
are singular beings far more singu
lar than their newspapers. I read of
one the other day who is said to have
declared that he "would have no man
in his employ that he could not swear
at" I do not know whether he ever
said that or not, but I believe he hts
no man in his eny,f.ry,f,Xwhom hp does
not swear. M he is not alon'o-in that
xTTyUality, for he has a power
ful rival who, if all accounts are true,
descends to vile and violent abuse of
those who are nearest to him whenever
he is crossed or his breakfast disagrees
I can tell the gentle reader this fact
that he can rely upon: When the day
comes that a new Frederick Hudson
writes a later history of daily journal
ism he will pen an absorbing chapter
upon the lives and characteristics and
habits of the imperial speculators who
invented and elaborated sensational
journalism. When that day comes
and it Is not far off, for the disease must
soon run itself out he will tell a tale
that will make the story of Monte
Cristo seem trifling and poor. He will
tell of men whose palaces are scattered
all over Europe and America, who have
as many secretaries and valets as
there are choir-boys In a cathedral, who
use brains and men as if they were
fagots or cheap leadpencils, who dare
to threaten presidents and governors,
who hold no law or custom too sacred
and no privacy worthy of regard. These
men are among the most notable de
velopments of our land and age. They
are not creatures of luck nor are they
the beneficiaries of the able men they
employ. Every now and then some
man under them fancies himself the
maker of their fortunes. He dreams
that he can do for himself what he
thinks he has done for his millionaire
publisher. He tries it, and in every
instance every such man has failed
lamentably and quickly.
No, this new breed of publishers
who have gone into newspaper work,
who print unedited, editorless papers,
are no butterflies or drones or Idlers.
The public hears of their yacht and
coaches and palaces, and thinks them
pampered swells. Their own employes
(those who are not close enough to
know better) fancy that it is "the
boys" who are doing all the moncy
maklnjc for "the bosses." But the new
history of journalism will tell a differ
ent story. It will tell of the overthrow
of the editor of old, of the casting out
of the old ideas called "principle" and
"policy" and "leadership" and "educa
tional work." It will tell of tho raising
up in their places of tho publisher
speculator who caters to the masses, to
the frivolous, to the lower tastes And
passions of mankind, and who runs his
paper for money; just as the Big I our
of California ran their great railroad.

Dr. J. M. (f awford, late United States
consul-generfal at St. Petersburg, is en
thusiastic on the subject of the Siberian
railroad anl regards it as one of the
greatest enterprises of the age, says the
Cincinnati Tribune, and he regards
the position that Russia has taken
on the Chinese - Japanese treaty
as a very fair one, and that the Russian
bear has not commenced to growl mere
ly for the purpose of gaining territory
and aggrandizing Itself. The Siberian
railroad has already had some $150,000,
000 Invested in it by the Russian gov
ernment, and to reach the eastern port
of Vladivostok the railroad must do one
of two things. It must keep in Russian
territory or it must cut across what
was a part of the Chinese empire, but
is now subject to the treaty. Vladivos
tok is on the Sea of Japan, at the ex
treme southeastern end of the Russian
empire. At this place the Chinese em
pire extends into the Russian empire,
and on the map looks as though a bite
had been taken out of Russia's domains.
It Is to cross this "bite" that the Rus
sian government is going to try, for at
the time that the war was declared be
tween China and Japan there were ne
gotiations pending between Russia and
China, and it was given the Russians
to understand that they would be per
mitted to do so, and Russia does not
propose to be balked in her plans. For
the railroad to reach Vladivostok with
out going out of Russian territory it
would have to run around the three
sides of the "bite" and would go over
country across which the difficulties of
construction would be great, while
across the "bite" they would be com
paratively easy. What the result of
this railroad will be the wildest flight
of fancy cannot picture, for the natural
resources of Siberia are so wonderful
that no one can estimate the benefit of
a railroad which would cross from
coast to coast and develop the country.
What its effect on the Pacific slopes
would be no one can do more than
It would be possible to go to Europe
without traveling longer than twenty
four hours by water.
COOLLY LIGHTED HIS CIGAR.
A Sea Captain' Act Which Probably
Saved the I.Ives of Hi I'assenf-ero.
A good story Is told of a sea captain
who died not long ago and who was
formerly in command of a ship In
which passengers were carried from
I.Cindon to Lisbon. On one occasion the
ship caxjight fire and the passengers and
crew wa re compelled to take hurriedly
to the Vboats. The captain remained
perfectly! cool throughout all the con
fusion anVl fright of the debarkment,
and at last every one except himself
wa3 got safely into the boats. By the
time he wais ready to follow, the pas
sengers weie til most wild with fear and
excitement. Insvtead of hurrying down
the ladder the captain called out to the
sailors to hold oii a minute, and, tak
ing a cigar froftn his pocket, coolly
lighted, it with fa. bit of burning rope
which had fallcn. from the rigging at
his feet. Then (he descended with de
liberation and feave the order to push

McCook, Neb., Aug. 26. On crossing
the Missouri River rutfalng to Lincoln,
the Darlington land agents' party
found a prospect which, from an agri
cultural standpoint, could not be ex
celled. Corn Is luxuriant and sturdy
end every stalk shows large-sized ears
sticking out from It It is eo far ad
vanced that the uninitiated could be
made to believe very readily that it la
past all harm from any source. Not
withstanding Ha fine appearance, how
ever, it Is not yet out of danger of frost,
and will not be for at least two weeks.
A fine crop of oats has been reaped in
this section. Much of it is still In the
shock and a good deal of it has been
stacked. It is thrashing out from
thirty to fifty bushels to the acre and
will average about forty. The wheat
crop has all been harvested, and farm
ers are now busy plowing their land
preparatory to putting in another crop
of winter wheat. .
Leaving Lincoln the outlook is much
less promising. Between Waverly and
Fairmont, a distance of sixty miles, Is
a stretch of country which has usually
been described as the garden spot of
Nebraska. Crops have always been
abundant here, however poorly they
may have been in other parts of the
stato. Last year and this year have
been the only known exceptions to this
rule. Somehow this belt has suffered
severely this year. It has rained copi
ously on all sides of it and all around
it, but the clouds refused to give it a
drop of moisture until too late to save
the corn crop. For a stretch of coun
try 6ixty miles long and sixty miles
wide the corn crop is a comparative
failure. It will only run from a quarter
to half a crop, averaging as a whole
about one-third an ordinary crop.
Oats have not faired so badly. They
are thrashing out from thirty-five to
forty bushels an acre. Heavy rains fell
over this section at the end of last week
They came too late, however, to save
the bulk of the corn. Very much of it
is wilted beyond redemption and a good
deal of it has already been cut for fod
der. Wheat in this section is thrashing
out fifteen bushels to the acre.
West of Fairmont the scene again
changes and an ocean of waving corn,
strong and luxuriant, is to be seen as
far as the eye can reach in every direct
tlon. The crop from Hastings to the
western boundary of the state is prac
tically made, and nothing but a killing
frost can now blight it. It will average
not less than sixty bushels to the acre,
and very many large fields will yield
Around McCook is where, tte disas
ters of last year were most severely
felt. The gains of this year have more
than made up for the losses then sus
tained. The whole section of country
looks like a veritable garden, and the
people feel buoyant beyond expression.
Winter wheat 13 thrashing out about
twenty bushels to the acre and the best
fields are yielding thirty bushels.
Spring wheat is running from twelve
to eighteen bushels to the acre. Oats
average from fifty to sixty bushels, the
best fields thrashing out 100 bushels.
Alfalfa is a new crop here with
which the people are delighted. All
kinds of live stock eat it with relish,
and it is proving to be fattening fodder.
The first year it yields one ton to the
acre, but after the third year It yields
three crops a year, which foot up seven
and one-half tons to the acre. It is
worth In the market 5 per ton, but to
feed cattle the results have shown it to
be worth f "0 per acre. It is the coming
crop all along the the flats of the Re
FISH IN A QUEER PLACE.
Thcj Manage to Live Without W-Uer la
Travelers in Central Africa during
the hot season often follow tho dry
beds of rivers nnd creeks for miles to
obviate tho necessity of cutting their
way through the heavy jungles which
every whero abound. Africa is well
known to be tho native land of many ,
extraordinary thing-), animate as well
as inanimate. This being the eas-e,
tho first explorers paid no attention to
tho thousands of balls of hardened
ui ud which were strewn about in all
profusion in the beds of these dried
up streams. One day, however, when
a dutachment of tho Cameron expedi
tion were exploring what in the wet
season would have been a tributary of
tho Nile, a woodman cracked on of
the balls, and was surprised be
yond measure to see a live fish
tumble out of the centre of the ball
and fall traplny and floundering in the
6and. ' This curious discovery led the
explorers to make an investigation,
whereupon every hardened ball of
earth, whether large or small, was
found to contain nn odd-shaped speci

to prevent the extinction of the spe

this fish Is that It breathes by meaDi

the life of each bud, stem and cane, is

The maturity of fruit buds on new
canes comes after this exhausting
work, and unless good care is continued
to develop and perfect the same, the
succeeding crop is greatly impaired.
The natural moisture, too, is much

Coal Oil for Gapes.
Gapes are caused by a collection of
small threadlike worms in the wind
pipe of the chicken. To kill these
worms and not hurt the chicken is the
thing to do. Coal oil of the cheaper
grades, says Dr. M. G. Ellzey in the
Baltimore Sun, is a more effectual in
sectitude than the refined. Take a
small glass tube with a small rubber
bulb, which apothecaries sell for a
"medicine dropper," half fill it with
coal oil, and inserting the tip into the
windpipe discharge the oil. The gapes
are cured. A small oil can used for
sewing machines will do in place of
the medicine dropper. Operate as fol
lows: Place the chicken, back down, be
tween your knees, and hold him gen
tly; open his hill and drawn the tongue
out. Seize the lower mandible and
tongue thus drawn out between the
forefinger and thumb of the left hand.
This will bring into view the opening
into the windpipe at the base of the
tongue, Into which gently insert the
tuhe and discharge the oil. Close the
bill and hold the head still for a -few
seconds. Then let the chicken go, and
he will cough, spattering some of the
oil out, but enough remains to destroy
the worms, and they will be coughed
up and swallowed. The gapes con
tinue for a short time after the treat
ment, but the remedy will be effectual
in every case if properly applied, and it
may readily be repeated, if thought
worth while, as often as necessary.
After a little practice it is very easily
applied, and always succeeds. ,
