A MAN at Stockton , Cal. , recently
sunk an artesian well , sinking a soven-
inoh tube 840 feet , and struck excel
lent water. Desiring to increase the
flow , he inserted a four-inch tube in
the seven and sunk it 1200 feet , again
meeting1 water , but unfit for drinking
and charged with gas , which came
bubbling to thetop. . A perforated
tin can placed over the mouth of the
tube showed that the gas would burn ,
and by laying pipe the owner has se
cured both fuel and water for his
house from the same well.
ROUMANIA is famous for the facility
of its divorce and the laxity of its
morals , yet the severest restraint is
imposed upon the intercourse of the
young people. A letter says : "Girls
have very little liberty here. If ti
gentleman is seen dancing more than
twice during the same evening with
a young lady he is as much compro
mised as the unhappy maiden herself ,
and immediately pounced upon by a
score of relatives demanding his in-
tenttons. No conversation can take
pl.ice between the young couples , as ,
directly after the dance , the gentle
man must trot his partner back to the
maternal wing. A young girl is al
lowed to have little or no intercourse
with men'and , a harmless 'flirtation'
would be ruinous to her reputation in
Bucharest. No wonder she accepts
the first offer of marriage as a means
of emancipating herself , neither is it
astonishino- that men never trouble
themselves to talk for any length of
time to an unmarried lady. " As
might be expected , this system of re
striction is very far indeed from tend
ing to morality.
Ix view of the terrible riot through
which Cincinnati has just gone , the
cause and fearful results of the same ,
the following editorial in the April
Century , is eminently apropos : "Over
against the fifteen hundred murders of
the last year , we have the report of
barely ninety-three legal executions.
Many of these must have been cases in
which the crime had been committed
during 1882 , while many of the crimi
nals of 1883 had not yet been brought
to trial. It is not , however , iar from
the truth to say that , while thirteen or
fourteen hundred murders are comimt-
ted in this country every year , fewer
than a hundred of the murderers suffer
the extreme penalty of the law. When
the willful slayer knows that he has
thirteen chances out of fourteen of es
caping the full penalty of the law , the
deterrent influence of punishment can
not be said to be very powerful. * *
"The small number of murderers
hanged by the sheriffs , and the greater
number hanged by the mobs , should be
evidence enough that the administration
of our criminal courts in many quarters
is fatally defective , and needs reforming.
The only classes of persons interested
in maintaining the present state of
things are ihe criminals and the crimi
nal lawyers ; and it is not for their ex
clusive benefit that society is organized.
The contrast between the swift , firm ,
and sure methods of English and Conti
nental courts in dealing with great crim
inals , and the tifdy. feeble and abortive
methods of our own , should sting our
national pride to some energetic meas
ures of reform. The people must rouse
themselves to demand a more vigorous
enforcement of the laws , and they must
see to it that judges and prosecuting
attorneys are chosen who have the abil
ity and the will to bring evil-doers to
justice. The iudges on the beach may
well inquire , whether the protection of
the criminal has not assumed dispro
portionate importance in our criminal
procedure. If , in our fear lest an inno
cent man may suffer , the law itself ,
which is the only protection of innocent
men , becomes utterly paralyzed , then
there is a call for a revision of our meth
ods and our maxims , and the infusion
of a new spirit into our laws. Every
judge who will brush aside the hair
splitting devices of the lawyers , and in
sist that criminal trials shall be conduct
ed with rigor and directness of purpose ,
will deserve , and will be likely to win ,
the approval of his fellow-citizens. "

THE Commercial Advertiser hopes
soon to hear of the "extinct/dude. "
This is not charitable to posterity. In
the ages yet to come some busy body
scientist would unearth him and again
inflict him upon an innocent world.
Two hundred and fifty thousand
dollars have been appropriated for
the purpose of refunding to settlers
on the line of the Denver & St. Joe
road , in Kansas and Nebraska , the
amount paid by them in the compro
mise entered into some years ago
when their lands were in contest.

A SMILE ran through a Back Bay
horse car yesterday at the announce
ment of an item in a famous will.
One jolly gentleman with white hair
announced the fact to'a friend on the
opposite seat. "She left five thous
and dollars to a gentleman who had
been engaged to her daughter , but
whose engagement has been broken
off a long time. " "What did she do
that for ? " "To compensate him for
his disappointment , I suppose j wo
men are queer sometimes. "
EVEUY winter a large number of
cattle drift on to the Union Pacific
railroad track for shelter in the cuts ,
and are run over and killed. The
company has to pay annually a large
sum for the cattle thus killed , and to
protect itself as well as the cattle , it
is now enclosing its track witli barb
ed wire fence from North Platte west- j
ward. The fence will be a barrier '
between herds north and south of the
track , and as it will cut the grazing ;
territory into two sections , and pre
vent roaming from one lo the other
the cattle men will probably raise
some objections. However , the Un
ion Pacific has a right to enclose its
track , and in all probability the fence
will in the end prove beneficial to all
parties interested. Bee.
WE clip the following stock items
from the N. W. Stock Journal , and
from their Palisade , Hayes county ,
Mr. N. A. Way , a Journal correspondent
pendent At Benkelman , paid his first
visit to Cheyenne and this office last
Saturday. The gentleman says the
reported losses of stock along the B.
& M. road have been much exaggera
ted. He counted twenty-one carcasses
from Benkelman to Haigler , sixty-
three from Haigler to Ray , and 162
from Ruy to Eckley. Many of these
had evidently been killed by the cars.
He says that during the storms the
cattle drifted down against the rail
road fence , and being unable to get
through to water or feed a number
perished. He noted that most of the
stock visible was young through cat
tle , scarcely any old ones in the herds ,
and thinks that they are doing as
well as could be expected under the
We are having beautiful weather
at present. Cattle are looking- well ,
some few are getting into the French
man. There are a great many north
ern cattle in this part of the country , .
which have drifted in at the forks of 'J
the Frenchman and Republican rivers. I
The 7VE stock company of western - J
ern Nebraska are feeding a great 'f
number of cattle this winter , and their
losses are light.
