HfMiMiKEVS , Neb. , Feb. 21. It was
learned hero this evening that Mr. Mc
Cubbin , formerly a stock man at Gib

sen's ranch , in Stanton county , about
Tour miles north of Leigh , Neb. , killed
his wife and hired man , named Frank
Yob , about 8 o'clock yesterday morn
JCrastus Dennis , also in the employ
of McCubbin , but living : with his fam
ily in a separate house , while doing
chores about the barn was attracted by
the report of a pistol shot. Upon
coming in sight of the house ho saw
McCubbin standing on the porch , pistol
an hand , the dead body of his wife ly
ing on one side and that of his hired
man lying on the other , but not yet
dead. McCubbin called to Dennis to
come and witness what ho had done ,
but Dennis hesitated at first , when Mc
Cubbin pointed the pistol at his own
Jiead and pulled the trigger , only to
, find that the pistol had been emptied ,
' when lie turned the pistol away , after
which Dennis went to him and talked
to him. He spoke about his family
being ruined and of his despair. He gave
hispocketbook to his boy , the oldest of
five children , and told him to take
care of the'contents , about § 80 , and
that ho and the other children would
jiave 10 live wiin uiuir grajiumuiuer ,
as after this they would never sec him
or their mother again. Dennis has
tened to their nearest , neighbor for
help , and returning soon after with
Peter Glandt , ho found Yob dead , with
his throat cut from car to car. Dennis
then hastened to Leigh and telegraphed
the coroner and sheriff to come to the
scene , and got a team to go up after
the children soon after his return.
A large crowd came up from Leigh ,
"but McCubbin had closed the house

no more until the house was broken

Haven regular local passenger train
which loft the Grand Central depot at
7:01 yesterday , was run into in the
Fourth avenue tunnel shortly afterward
by a yard engine attached to several

Kesolved , That this association re
commends the adoption by ail com
mercial bodies represented thereby of
the following memorial to the senate
nd house of representatives of the
United States :
Whereas. The commercial associa
tion of the United States demand that
the relation between common carriers
and the public be in all respects so
simplified as to avoid misunderstand
ing , misconceptions or injustice.
Whereas , In the direction of secur
ing clearness of understanding as to
respective rights of carriers and ship
pers the first step seems to lie in the
establishment of uniformity in bills of
lading and of classifications.
Whereas , The carriers of the coun
try being apparently unable to agree
iamong themselves concerning the
-methods by which such conformity can
lie secured ,
'Resolved , That-the senate and house
of representatives are earnestly re
quested to talccsuuh measures as may in
their judgment seem proper to compel
the carriers of the United States to fur

only of said carriers shall be expressed ,

Niw YoitK , Feb. 21. The Rev.
Thomas E. Sherman arrived home from
Europe Thursday night on the steamer
Majestic. When his father , the late
General Sherman , became seriously
ill , Mr. Sherman was summoned from
the island of Jersey , where he was
studying at the Jesuit theological sem
inary. Jlc took the first steamer , and
as soon as word of this reached his
relatives hero they made arrangements
to have outgoing vessels signal the
tidings of General Sherman's condi
tion and finally of his death to the Ma
jestic should they sight her. She was
not spoken by any ship , however , and
when the pilot boarded her Mr. Sher
man eagerly asked about the general :
I am unable to say , ' ' replied the pi
lot , adding that he only knew of Gen
eral Sherman's sickness , as he had
been out at sea for some days. When
the mail steamer came alongside , Mr.
SI er.nan repeated his anxious inqui
ry. The answer came back : "Gen
eral Sherman's funeral takes place to-
'JTlic SIicrmuH Obsequies.
NEIV Yomc , Feb. 17. General O.
O. Howard and General Henry W.
Slooum were busy yesterday morning
perfecting arrangements for the funeral
of General Sherman , but they are not
prepared to make their final announce
ment. They are selected by the fam
ily to take charge of the matter , and
they have called in consultation Gen
eral Daniel Butterlield and Lieutenant
Treat. The house , 75 West Seventy-
first street , in which the body of Gen
eral Sherman lies , was visited thia
morning by many friends of the fam
ily who came to offer their sympathy.
The street , ordinarily so quiet , was all
he morning filled with pedestrians at-
ti-acted to the neighborhood by the de
sire to see the place in which the gen
eral made his last fight. The dismal
weather did not seem to dismay them
at all. Many prominent persons were
among those who called at the house.
None of the visitors were permitted to
look at the features of the dead man.
Messenger boys were calling at the
house continually and from ail parts
of the country messages of sympathy
were pouring in.
The funeral car will be placed on the
regular St. Louis fast express on the
Pennsylvania road at 6:30 Thursday
evening. The train is expected to ar
rive in St. Kouis Saturday morning at
7:30. Only a few of the general's fam
ily and relatives will go to St. Louis
and only one car will be used for them.
President Robert of the Pennsylvania
has tendered the family the use of his
special car. No extra cars will be al
lowed for those desiring to accompany
the remains on their westward journey.
The members of the Grand Army of
the Republic at Pittsburg desire to pay
snecial honor to the general's remains
in that city.
A telegram was received yesterday
from Senators Quay and Cameron ask
ing for this special privilege. The re
ply to the telegram was not made pub
lic last evening. A white horse will
go in advance of the caisson bearing
the general's military trappings.
Additional telegrams of regret have
been received from the West Point
cadets. Senator Brice. General Stanley ,
General Corse and M. J. Kearney of
the United States life saving corns.

ments. After an ineffectual effort by
Mr. Blount and Mr. Breckenridge to
defeat the resolution Mr. Cannon took
the lloor , stating that he would say a
few words as to the merits of the prop
osition. Mr. McMillan of Tennessee
inquired whether Mr. Cannon's object
was not the prevention of the forty
minute debate allowed under the rules.
Mr. Cannon replied in the affirmative.
In view of the dillatory motions al
ready made on the democratic side , un
der the lead of Mr. McMillan , the repub
licans accepted notice from that side
that it didn't wish to facilitate business.
Mr. McMillan said the democrats
would meet Mr. Cannon's programme
at every point. Mr. Blount moved to
recommit the resolution and on the
yeas and nays being called for the
great body of the democrats left the
hall. The vote resulted yeas , 12 ; nays ,

Mr. McMillan's object , the democrats
once more disappeared. The motion

agreed to , 155 to 4 , and the court bill
was immediately ta'en up. The sen
ate amendments were non-concurred

arrangement with the Indians drawing
rations at the Rosebud agency as will
be satisfactorv to them bv which those .
of the Lower Brulc Indians , who de

Brazil , who put the ants to a very pe

his hand sewed together , as physicians
do in this country , he rooures five or
six black ants , and holding their heads
near the gash , they bring their jaws
together in biting the llesh. and thus

Then the Indian pinches off the bodies

The Department of .Agriculture , utiring
the past three jears , has uevoted considera
ble time to the study of fruit tree and vine
diseases. 'Jhis division was the first agency
in this country to introduce the use of fun
gicides for irrape diseases , and it is esti
mated as a result of its work thai nearly live
thousand grape growers , in nearly all "parts
of the country , treated their vineyards for
mildew and black rot , in Ib'JO. Probably in
no part of the United States was the sprav--
ing of the grape vines and fruit trees-put to
more of a severe test than at Nanvoo , 111. ,
the past season. Nearly 2OJO , was invested
there in spraying outlits and material. The
results have proven so satisfactory that this
coming season almost every vintner and
orchardist in that section of the country will
have a spraying outlit ; in fact the spraying
outlits have become as much of a necessity
as the plow on a farm.
Jt is estimated that the extent of damage
done to the fruit trees and vines in the
United States by insects and fungus disease
each year will reach four hundred million
dollars ; iu which event it is time come
method was devised to avoid this heavy loss
which is most felt by the growers in years of
scarcity. The scarcer the fruit is the more
we ha\e to contend with in ccts.

a special study of how to prevent the ravages
of insects and" fungus diseases and will send
to any one interested free of charge , a full
and descriptive treatise on this subject.
