We find the following in the Glen

The Fair closed with a tii il of speed
by ''Jennie'' of Rig Grove, Nc-lu-.-iska,
""l'rein'hman" of Nebraska, "Hay Char
ley" of Avoca, "Sleepy I 'rank'"' of thi
County, and "Gray Ne.l" of Nel.r.i.-ka
Time was called, "Sleepy Frank,"
"Frenchman" and ''Charley" were

leaving "Jennie" to go against time.

The "Rig Grove" above is evidently a

that place.
It is the habit of some people to laugh
at the terror wlncli is exprcieiiced by
otters at the heavy txiumJer-cran, or
the flashing lightining. This is hath
cruel and wicked, since the victim is no
more to blame for it than for the color
of his eyes and hair in fact, like them,
it is often hereditary. Such persons
fhould be pitied and soothed, ami allow
ed dnring these periods to be always
near some one whom they love and con
tide in. More especially i-- this true of
children, some of whom suITer more than
words can tell from this, as well as from
other causes of fear. Deal gentle with
such ; it is the only way to eradicate
their fears; ridicule and har.-hness wi;l
only confirm them. The child "afraid
of the dark," should never be enforced
to encounter it unattended and unwau.h
ed. Idiocy has often been the sad result
of contrary treatment. Let both parents
and teachers, then, be thoughtful in
hase regards.
The people of tho West are philoso
' pheri, and the farther west one gi Is,
the more eminently is their philosophy
displayed. It is more noticeable by the
manner in which they receive troubles,
"trials and disappointments, and has
beea illu.-trated by our California ex-
chaujres which have com'? to hand since
their election. The following from a
Democratic exchange is a MKimoti:
"A prominent dentist, whose sipn in
formed pxvers by that '"Laughing Gas
is Administered," was waited upon by a
doleful, niclancbo'ly looking individual
the other day, who appeared as if every
molar and insisor in his cavernous jaws about to jump from their allotted
place, and who informed the urbane and
expectant deoti.-t that 'he wanted to
larf.' ' Want a tooth cxtracated, sir?'
was the impair. 'Tooth! h lno; I ken
bite olTa tenpenny nail with every tooth
iu my head, but I'm a Democrat, and I
bet every cent I was worth on flaiht
straight up, and now I'm dead broke,
and the whole party is eternally d d; 1
feel as if I can never raise another natu
ral laugh again, and I waut to try the
power of your g3s.' The doctor could
with difficulty suppress the guffaw hiru
nelf, but ho accommodated his patient,
who is probably the only Democrat in
this city who 'cracked a smile' yester

Opinion of Judge Lake on Kiileof
Ileal Estate fur Delinquent Taxes.
A temporary injunction wa3 recently
asked for and obtained in the District
Couit of Douglas county, to restrain the
sale of .real estate for delinquent taxes,
upon the ground of irregularity in the
imposition of the tax. Judge Lake's
deci.-ion on this question is one of such
importance to the people generally
throughout the State, that we publish
it in full, so far as it relates to the rail
road bonds. The injunction was dis
solved: OI'IXIO.V.
John Hallenbeck ) In the District
m. r Court for Douy-
W. J. Hahn. j las County.
This cae is a very importan and in
teresting one, not only in view of the
legal principles by which it is governed,
but al.-o in consequence of the magnitude
of the interests which are involved and
affected by its determination.
It has been very ably presented by the
respective counsel, and a very large
number of authorities cited to sustain
thj views of each; and now I have only
to regret that the want cf time has pre
vented me from giving to the case, and
the authorities produced, anything more
than a cursory examination not at all
commensurate with what they really
The conclusion, however, to which I
have come, from the examination given,
would enable me to dispose of the case,
at this time, without noticing several
questions which have been deemed im
portant, and were urged upon my atten
tion with much force and earnesness by
This action is b'onght to enjoin the
sale of the lands of the plaintiff by the
defendant who is Treasurer of Douglas
county, f'.r delinquent taxes levied for
the year 1870, including the btate,
school, and municipal levy.
The plaintiff, among other things, al
leges that he is a resident of Douglas
county, the owner in fee of the laud in
question, and that the sale which the
d dendant iiabout to make, icill cast a
c'omf upon his title. This is the only
evil impending which the plaintiff wishes
to avert, and to prevent which he calls
for th'j intcrf Tence of t lie court.
The plaintiff denies the authority of
the de-ft-ndaut to sell his lands for said
taxes, because there was in;-Iuled in thj
levy for that year a Mini with which to
meet the in erest, etc., on three hun
dred and fifty thousand dollars of bonds,-
issued by the county of Douglas to aid
in the construction of the Omaha &
Northwestern and Omaha & Southwest
ern railroads, each having their termini
in this city, and reaching from thence
into our State.
It is contend'd that the issuance of
these binds was wholly unautho.izod,
for the f'hl iwin reasons:
1. Sail bonds were a gift or donation
to said road-;, the same I einsi a private
corj ontioii, ai:d su-Ii bonds arid tho
interest thereon cinnot be uiad-2 charge
able a a public tax.
2. The levy, if made at all. should
iiave been made specifically to each
particular road, ifot to both combined.
''. There is 'no evidence among the
records in the ciuuty clerk's office, ur
other records of tho county, that a copy
of the question submitted was posted
up at each place of voting du:ing the
day of el ction.
4. There is no evidence that the
vo eso. the special t'ction were can
vassed, or that the same, or the returns
thereof, wore opened and abstracts made
as provided by law, or by the county
c!erk, with two di interested electors.
0. The levy made is an excess of the
annual sum tt bo pai on said bonds.
0. There is no ovi.L rics of which the
Court can take judicial notice that a
majority of the votes cast were in favor
of the proposition submitted to issue
vaid bonds the votes of one precinct n:t
being canvassed nor explained, save by
the remark "no returns.''
7. That there is not and never wa
such a place as the "Mount Vernon"
(one of the places for holding the elec
tion, as designated in the proclamation
of the commissioners, on the corner of
Davenport and Ninth streets, in Omaha
Precinct No. 3, and that said special
election was not hell on sai 1 corner,
nor i " any place on said corner, nor in
any place on said Ninth street.
The first objejlion here made strikes
a' the very foundation upon which these
bond rets, and if tenable, would render
it wholly unnecessary to examine the
six remaining objections.
Hut is this objection well taken? Is it
incompetent lor tho State, or ons of its
municipal subdivisions, by the asent
of the, to aid in the con.struc
tio.i of railroads and other works of
great , ublic benefit to the people of the
State, or the municipality granting it,
perchance actually nccestary to their
prosperity and happines.
On this point 1 mut say that I have
received very great aid from the labors
and researches of counsel, and that from
as careful an examination of the ci-es
bearing upon this question as very lim
ited time would allow, the conclusion is
irresistible that this is not now an open
question, and that whenever there exists
uo constitutional prohibition, the whole
matter is left to legislative disciction as
to the extent of the aid which the peo
ple may bestow.
The constant practice of the general
government, and the acti'in of a larjre
majority of the States sustained as they
have ben by an almost unb oken cur
rent of decisions by the courts of Inst
roort, would s?em to be decisive of the
question, aud place it f rever at rest.
It is assumed by this objection that
these railroad companies are merely
piivatc corporations. This is not strict
ly true. Their c haracter U to be de
termined by ascertaining th object
which the Sta'e had in view in their
ere ition. In the incorporation of rail
road companies what other tljcct could
the legislature have in view than the
providing of facilities of travel to the
people, and the moans of transporting
their goods and merchandise from one
portion of the State to another, and to
put every portion of the State iu easy
communicariou wiih the great trade
centers of the country. And this was
one of the chief reasons which induced
Congress to bestow so princely a bounty
upon the great Pacific ronds, in the
shape of 'ands and national bonds.
What other consideration could have
induced our own State Legislature to
grant its internal improvements lands to
the several rends now in process of con
struction in v. riou portions cf the
State. I will oiily ruicr to two or three
of the numerous authorities on this
subject. In the case of Swan vs Wil
liams ct aL, 2 Mich. 427, tire court says:
"Most certaia it is. that as to all their
rights, powers and responsibilities, three
grand classes of corporations exist. 1.
Political or municipal corporations such
as counties, towns, cities and villages,
which from their nature are subject to
the unlimited control of the Legislature.
2. Those associations which ar created
for the public benrfit, and to which the
government delegates a portion of its
sovereign pc wer to be exercised for public
vtility, such as turnpike, bridge, canal
and railroad companies; ?,. strictly pri
vate corporations where the private in
terest of the primary object of tho asso
ciation, such as banking, insurance,
manufactuiing and trading companies.
Again, the same court adds, "To say,
aT has been too often carelessly said, that
the acts done by these corporations are
done with a view to their own interests,
from which an incidental benefit springs
to the public, is to admit the private
character and the private use of the
property condemned to their use. Hut
it is obvious that the object which de
termines the character- of a corporation
is that desitned by the legislature, ratli
er than sovght by the Company." To
the same imports arethecases ofOsborn
vs The Uni ed State3 Hank. '. Whcaton,
7.8; Hlondgood vs The Mohawk and
Hudson liailroad Companies, 18 Wen
dell, 1; and the Hoard of County Com
missioners of the County of liCaven
worth vs Edward Miller, a case recently
decided by the Supreme Court of Kan
sas, wherein this doctrine is most dis
tinctly affirmed, after a very careful
review of all the principal authorities
bearing upon this question.
As to the'second objection that "the
levy should have been made to each
particular roai, and not to both com
bined," I i-.'ive to say that while it
would undoubtedly be proper, and per
haps better, that the amounts necessary
to pay the bond of each road be levied
separately, yet I find no authority actu
ally requiring it to be done. Nor does
it appear that by reason of their being
grouped together any injury has resulted
to the plaintiff. He uraes the same
objections to aud seeks the same relief
against both.
The third objection is untenable.
What matters it, even if it be true, that
there is no evidence in the clerk's oiliee,
or other records of the county, that a
copy of the question submitted to the
people was posted up at each jil ice of
voting duting the day of election? If the
copy were posted up in fact, as the law
requires, it would be sufficient even
though no record evidence of ths fact
has been preserved, and in the ab.-enee
of an allegation to the coutrary we are
bound to presume it to have been done.
And the same is true of the fourth ob
jection relative to the canvass of the votes.
Hut I think it does not appear from the
petition that all these things were done.
The extract-s taken from the records and
files in the County Clerk's office show
that h!1 thesa requirements were com
P icd with.
It is a rule of pleading that the state
ments shall be takeu most stremily
airamst the pleader. Applying this
v hoi -'some test, can it be sufficient to
state that the records of the county -how
that the essential requirements of the
law were complied with '!
Again, it is urged that the amount of
the tax levied was in excess of what was
necessary to pay the interest for otic
year, but it is not shown that it was, more
than would be neeesary to 'meet the
interest that had and would accrue be
fore another levy could be made.
It is not shown by the petition what
amount of interest it is necessary to
meet. There may be more than one
year's interest to provide for by this levy
All that is alleged in the petition is that
tho levy. made is in exes of the annual
sum to be paid on said bonds. Hot even
if this were so, and made clearly to ap
pear from rhe petition, it would not be
a sufficient ground to call for the appli
cation of the extraordinary remedy here
sauglit. For auzht that appears, the
increase of the amount which the plain
tiff is hereby called upon to pay is mere
ly trifling
The O h objection is that there is no
evidence of which the court can take
judicial notice that a majority of the
votes east were in favor of the issuing of
the bonds. 1 his allegation is open to
the same criticism that I have just ap
plied to other portious of the petition,
arid also to the further one, that it is not
the duty of the court, but of the County
Commissioners, to investigate and de
termine whether a majority of the votes
were in favor of the proposition submit
ted. This is the duty specially enjoined
upon that Hoard by the law; and fiom a
transcript on their records, copiod into
the petition, it distinctly appears that
they Sound the whole number of votes
ca-t for the bonds to have been sixteen
hundred and forty-five, anil but one
hundred and seventy-six against.
To the 7th objection, I will only re
mark that it does not appear that an
election was rcaliy held in Omaha Pre
cinct No. it, and that nt this poll there
was caf-t three hundred and sixteen
votes fc r, and three votes against the
bonds. It does not appear that any
elector was deceived, or lost his vote ly
the alleged irraulaiities, nor that any
other result could possibly have been
secured had the precisejlace of holding
the election been given in the notice.
"A thermometer should be placed in
an open space, out of the vicinity of high
buildings or a:iy object that impedes t he
free circulation of air. It should face
the north, to be always in the shade,
should be twelve inches from every
neighboring object, should be about fif
teen fe?t from the ground, and should
be protected against its own radiation to
the sky, and against the light reflected
from neighboring objects, or the ground
itself. ' So says Signal Officer Single
ton, of St. Louis.
This slightly malicious paragraph is
from the Cincinnati Commercial: "The
inhabitants of Greeley, Co'orado, stimu
late with ammonia. At least that is the
name on the bottles, and it is wonderful
to see with what freedom they permit
the liquid to gurgle down their throats."
The latest cosmetic English women
have becun to use is from an old recipe

namely, cucumbers steeped in milk. An

with oat meal plasters on its face, chlo
ride on its locks, bismuth on its fi'icers
to give a pearly appearance, a steel ban 1

We have been shown the proof sheets
of a new and very excellent chart of the

The Tea Trade in a Xew i'iiumicl.
From the !?an Francisco Bullo'in.
For some months past there has been
a warm discussion in the commercial
papers of the Atlantic and Western
States concerning the tendency of the
tea business to find new channels for
transportation. New York claimed her
old supremacy in this respect. Chicago
hotly contested it. St. Louis made even
a more emphatic denial. In the mean
time cargo after cargo was being landed
in this city, and deposited across the
continent by rail. It is said that Jvl't
tons took this direction la-t week, and
that in a few days l.L'00 tons will follow.
These may be over-estimates. Hat,
reducing the figures to facts, they show
what is the present drift of the tea trade.
The exports by the way of the Suez Ca
mlhave not bet n saiUlhcury to New
V01 k importers. Importations iu sail
ing vessels by way of Cape Horn are
ncaily at an end. There is now a bond
ed transportation line which will proba
bly connect with all the chief cities of
the country. The complaints at the
New York Custom House, in the delay
of goods, .Vc, charges in getting goods
through with dispatch, which, il is said,
amounted to " per cent, on the value of
invoices, have all operated in favor of
sending tea across the country by rail.
While Ivistern papers are busily engaged
in writing the project down, it ripens to
an accomplished fact. Hereafter tea
trains will be so frequent as to hardly
attract attention. Merchants in New
York receive invoices of tea from forty
to sixty days soorer than in the old way.
The gieat inland cities are not vexed
with extra Ccs'om Hou-e chirges; time
and money are saved, a: d these being
th;? controlling considerations, the new
drift cannot be turned aside. The great
receiving depot hereafter, for tea, will
be San Francisco.

was in Paris during the war, pursuing
her musical studies, Irad opportunity
also for testing the quality of the differ
ent kinds of meat resorted to during
the seige. She suys that about six
weeks afrer the first seige had com
menced, th'j lady r.f the house at which
she was boarding, with some thirty oth
ers, remarked to her "tenants" that
they soon would have to cat horse and
other animal fieh, as the supply of beef
was rapidly decreasing. They all begged
her not to tell thc-m when they began
to tat it, as the' feared thev would not
be able to overcome their repugnaee
at the idea of such food. The landlady
gratified their wish, and it was not until
a week or ten days had pa.-sod that they
knew that they had been living on
"" new meat." Mi-sTaggart found it not
only pa'atable, but pleasant. Mule
meat was very nice, tasting like fresh,
juicy beef; horse Uc.-h was g"oJ, but
not so tender; cats were really excel
lent, aud when served tip ivith rabbit
could not be distinguished from it. For

quired a distaste which she could not
overcome. Her fellow-boarders sail ir
was because her first piece was not a

cooking will give them plenty of it.
Men are the best cooks. Now, the
best book on cooking is written by a

Thousands for One. Some pains
taking genius has been &t the trouble of
counting the increase in weeds. It tig
ures up considerably more than the
Scripture count. Here it is: A healthy
pig weed, if not dis1 urbed, will ripen
more than lO.OoO seeds-and they are
pretty sure to grow. The seeds of the
common dock will produce 13,0O seeds.
The toad flax leaves 4",000 heirs, to in
herit its e-tate. Burdock is prolific to
the amount of lM.000 fold, and like poor
relations, they are always hanging to
one's skirts. The common stinging net
tle gives 100,000 and over, for one.
There are very few weeds but will pro
duce a thousand fold, and they do not
require to be ripe to reproduce their
kind. Destroy them, if possible, before
they blossom. You cannot raise tigs on
thistles, neither may you expect good
crons among weeds. Every one de
stroyed before seeding this .year, saves
the trouble of destroying thousands an
other. Kill the weeds.
At St. Louis, too other day, so an ex
change tells us, " arrived an elegantly
dressed and apparrentiy wealthy lady
from Cle eland, who wished to go a
short distance in the country. There be
ing no stage at that hour, a gentleman
was found who lived in that d'reclion
indicated, and was willing to favor the
lady with a ride." The Herald tells the
remainder of the story: ""But lo ! upon
being confronted with each other, they
each positively declined having anything
to do with each other, and the gentle
man incontinently bolted. Upon being
asked why this was thus, he replied :
"Thunder! I know that woman ! She
was my wife once, and I would'nt ride
ten miles with her fox o'..'0!' The lady
.subsequently hired a carriage; and cn
the way informed the driver that she
'had found out something she had want

corns, and swelled joints are almost uni

A celebrated dandy was ordered by
his physician to follow a course of sea
b ithiiig at Dieppe. Arrived at that de-iLi-.tful
town, he ordered a machine
an.l attendant, and went boldly into the
water. He plunged in bravely, but in
an instant aier came up puffing and
"Francois," said Ire, "the sea smells
detestably; it will poison me. Throw
a little eau-de-Cologne into the water,
or I shall be suffocated !"
An Irish paper states that as three
men were j cling a boat along the Abbe
Hiver, county of Limerick, on Saturday,
Augu.-t ly, the pole which they were
using stuck in the bottom of the river,
and for a time their united exertions
failed to extricate it. At last they suc
ceeded, when to their astonishment they
discovered that it was caught in an
en irmotis-y large bell, which remained
suspended to it, and which they go: into
the boat. The bell, which weighs about
twelves-one, bore date of 1181. and is
suppo-ed to have belonged to St. Mary 's
Cathedral, and to have been thrown into
tlie river during the siege of Limeiick.
There was a wedding in Boston shortly
after the Bonaparte Edgar affair that
fairly eclipsed that in public interest. A
wealthy merchant who had been a con
firmed widower for thirty .velars, gave up
his celibacy, and married a charming
widow with thirteen children. To in
quiring friends he expresses his willing
noss to provide for thirteen more.
Yesterday a stove which had been
all summer standing in t lie Post Office,
in this city, was brought into use for the
first time this season. A quantity of
waste paper had nccumu'atcd inside
during th summer, and a tire was about,
to be applied to if according t" the 11-ual
custom. By accident the contents were
first removed, and it was then found
that seventy c-itridges had been conceal
ed inside. Had the match been lit. a
j fearfu' explosion mii.-t have followed.
e prefer to believe that these cat-rilg'.-s
were left there by some person
without design to do injury, and after
wards forgotten. But a stove is a queer
place to keep powder. Omaha Herald. ,
