THE wife of Robert .T. Burdetto ,
who discovered in the Ifawkeye hum
orist his latent talents , and although
herself a hopeless invalid , persisted
in the development of his genius , died
this week. The loss will be irrepar
able to the afllicted husband.
TJIK state board of equalixutiou has"
raised the assessment of the B. & M.
line two thousand dollars a mile. The
TJ. P. assessment is not raised so much.
The returns to the auditor's office
show the business of the B. & M.
largely in excess of that of the U. P.
IT took a Massachusetts jury only
ten minutes to convict a "Worcester
quack of manslaughter , he having
bandaged a woman in kerosene , thus
causing her death in a very short time.
If all the quacks had their just des
erts , the penitentiaries in this country
would have to be largely increased
in size and number to accommodate
humorist of the Norwalk ( Cin
cinnati ) Hour , who caused a run on
the Norwalk savings bank by a face
tious reference to the failure of a sand
bank , now declares his intention to
indemnify the depositors of the sav
ings bank resulting from the panic
created by his joke. This offer , com
ing from a newspaper man , may be
: onsidered another joke.
THOSE who were so hasty to con
demn Grant & Ward for their pecu
liar business methods , can now pour
out their denunciations upon the offi
cials of the Penn bank at Pittsburgh ,
who , with a capital of only $200,000
to work on , managed to steal more
than § 2,000,000. The only thing
found in the bank of any value was
thfc safe ; and that was too heavy to
be carried olF.
THE sworn statement by himself
that he had hired Miss Hill as his
mistress for five hundred dollars per
month , puts Mr. Sharon without the
pale of decent society , makes of him a
social out-law and lecherous social
leper of the worst kind. There has
been nothing so shameless and shame
ful in the history of criminal proced
ure as this trial has developed. 'Its
showing up of criminal lewdness by
one of our millionaires is indeed
shocking and should open the eyes of
all respectable people everywhere.
SAMUEL J. TILDEX , who has one
foot in the grave , ought to make the
same arrangement with his family
physician that William King , a rich
old London merchant , made with his
physician. He willed § 1,000 to his
physician , with the proviso that the
sum should be doubled every year
that the testator should be kept alive.
The second year the sum became
82,000 , the third year , 84,000 ; the
fourth , 88,000 ; the fifth , 816,000 ; the
sixth , 832,000 ; the seventh , 864,000 ;
the eighth , 8128,000 ; the ninth,8256-
000 ; the tenth , 8312,000. Upon the
death of Mr. King a few weeks ago ,
the physician was paid 8750,000 , be
tween ten and eleven years having
* - i O
passed since the agreement.
APJIOPOS of the crusade begun
against piano playing in Berlin , the
New York Times says : "The average
German young lady practices four
hours , every day , and many German
younf men imitate her miserable ex
ample. Police statistics show that
the number of pianos in Berlin aver
ages two and an eighth for every
house. Thus on every block of a
Berlin street there are from 200 to
740 pianos , according to the charac
ter of the street and the financial cir
cumstances of the residents. In a
block where there are , say 400 pianos ,
each of which is in operation four
hours a day , it is evident that there
cannot be a moment between dawn
ind midnight when some one is not
practicing scales and exercises , or ,
ivorsc still , playing Wagner's music. "

THE TOWN OF MeSOOK
In Red Willow Comity , Nebraska , lias been surveyed , and
lots in tlie market , for just one year and lias now a population
of 1000 people. Tliis point lias been designated by tlie C. , B.
& Q. as the DIVISION STATION between tlie MISSOURI
RIVER & DENVER , where the principal shops , a 15 stall
round house and other R. R. facilities have been located on
the Denver Line. A complete system of water works costing
$25,000 is just being completed giving all the facilities for
comfort posessed of old cities. Lots will range in price from
$150 to § 500 for business lots , and $50 to $200 for residence
lots. The history of points like McCook show an increase
of more than three hundred per cent , in from one to five years ,
and this town promises to be an exceptional chance for invest
ments. For further particulars apply to R. O. PHILLIPS ,
