Painful Story of Mr. Payne's Deal In
J'Vom the Campbell Citizen.
V. K. 1'iiyne, living southeast of town
dwn Inavale wiy, was formerly the
proud owner of a eow. Shu wax a good
cow, but one day she died, and, while
Air. Payne was pained at the loss, like
a prudent man he concluded to realize
what he could from poor fcossy before
she became n memory only.
Mr. Payne did not know as much at
the time of the occurrence as he has
since learned, else this story would
.never have been written'. Hut Mr.
Payne was innocent and trusting. He
was also a tidy bit loser. What more
natural than that he should desire to
get every cent fcr the critter's hide
there was in it?
The American Hide and Wool Co. of
Lincoln are buyers, so they say, of
hides, wools, pelts, furs and tallow.
Jt is a strictly philanthropic institu
tion, if their word is to be believed,
which exults in doing business for the
delightful beneficial hygienic effects
of the exercise, combined with that
gentle warmth at the heart that al-

Hev. Thompson, pastor of the Advent Late last night Frank Kthcrtoii

etc." Mr. J'ayne was made acquainted
with these facts by a circular letter
quoting him a price on hides of 10c to
l.'ic per pound.
Mr. Pay -.crested. He trades
at Campbell, however, and when Ueo.
Firkins only offered him 7c a pound
for his hide it almost made him cry.
He sat down and figured on the bade
of an envelope just how much George
was beating him. The hide weighed
fi.i lbs., whien at 7c would only bring

paying Hie for the top. but to be con
servative Mr. Payne concluded to be
on the safe side. Twelve times 55 is
SH'i.fiO. "Too much profit for one hide
$:.'.05 is." concludes Mr. Payne.
The rest of the story is too sad to
dwell upon. Mr. Payne shipped to the
Lincoln house, and when the returns
came in he suddenly saw a great light.
The hide when shipped weighed 55
lbs. ISefore it got to Lincoln it had
dwindled to 40 lbs., and from this was
clipped another 10 lbs. for shrink
age." This is the way the bill then

Such is the tale of Payne and his

him. He told it to George, came in
and subscribed for the Citizen.. 'and
now wishes his sad story given to the
world so that the following lesson
may be learned:

The Camp lecture last Monday night
was well attended and the lecture was
well rendered, considering the condi
tion of the speaker, as he was not
feeling very well. The sentiment of
the audience was that it was good.
Some said "A little long." others saitl
".lust right." The shoe Htted in places,

On the whole he gave us many good
things to think about as we try to lit

The next number on the college lec
ture course is "The American Hoy," by
Frank Gamel, and if you have not
heard any other you can not afford to
miss this number. It will be an illus
trated lecture on the boy of America,
showing his pranks, perils and possi
bilities, with more than 100 pictures
of real boy life. Then Mr. Gtimcl has
a scries of moving pictures that will
interest you. Every lover of boys,
every hater of boys, must hear this
number, February 'J7.
Dr. Hoyajian made the school a visit
and a talk Tuesday afternoon. It was
real interesting and instructive. The
doctor has a good way to advertise,
and one that is working well. He is
a good showman from start to finish.
He talked to us on the schools of his
own country (Armenia), comparing the
five languages he could write and myl
with the English language. He is a
success in the line of an entertainer
and an advertiser, lie is welcome to
advertise again in our rooms. We en
joyed it.
I lie rapid calculation class Had an
interesting time last Friday. Prof.
Paul Dietrich chose five members from
the class to cipher against the rest of
the '.".' pupils in the class. It was a
close contest and in many places it
was hard to decide who was winner,
although the sentiment of the class
was for the five chosen ones Miss
Hermanson. Miss Portinier. Mr. Wat
son, Mr. Kent and Mr. Quirin. Among
those who did some quick work on the
other side were Everton Foe, Laura
Harris. Rollie Hrooks and others.
The band boys of Hud Cloud are to
be congratulated on the work they
did at their llrst appearance in public
last Monday evening. Prof. Snapp
remarked to Prof. Dietrick that it
seemed as though the lecture course
numbers all came on baud practice
night. Prof. Dietrick suggested that
the band practice in the opera house
and on the street on Monday night,
and you know how well it was carried
out. Prof. Snapp is certainly a good
back tooth of a full grown hog. for
the projections in the crown are very
much worn down, and the principal
depression in the center of the crown
and the radiating grooves between the
projections are as neatly llllcd with
lead as it would be possible for a
dentist to 1111 a cavity in a tooth.
Dr. E. II. Harbour, curator of the
museum, declares it is one of the most
interesting specimens of its kind he
has ever seen, and he intends to pre
pare a careful description of it for a
scientific magazine. Several members
of the faculties of the dental and
medical colleges have examined the
specimen and agree that an expert
could not do a better job of dentistry.
In explaining the phenomenon. Dr.
Harbour recalls the fact that hogs
often take something hard, as an iron
bolt or a piece of crockery, and carry
it around in their mouths and bite it,
merely as a plaything. This hog evi
dently found a bullet or a small piece
of lead and, in using it for chewing
gum. got some of it wedged in its
tooth. The continual grind of chew
ing pressed it. down closely into the
depression in the center of the tooth (ijs,,,.
and wore oil all the lead that project
ed, making a neat lead filling.
The tooth was sent to the museum
by the Uev. .1. M. Hates of Red Cloud
and was found near that place. Hev.
Mr. Hates has secured several valuable
specimens for the museum.
