On Wednesday of this week
a serious accident happened to
three little boys, Harry and Ray,
sons of County Clerk Roper, and
Carl, son of Andy Lord. They
were playing in the rear of Shafer’s
drugstore where they found a can
containing phosphorus, not know
ing its deadly nature they put
some of it in there pockets and
started home when just back of
the Sargent hotel they began to
scream from fright and pain and
were discovered in flames, several
citizens gathered and carried them
to the pump, where it was thought
fhe fire was extinquished but be
fore they reached home it broke
out again. They were taken to
ihoir homes and doctors called,
and everything done for them that
medical skill could do but at pres

fears are entertained for their
The brilliant, courageous and
learned Dr. Briggs has been
“turned down” by his brethren of
the Presbyterian faith. Perhaps,
after all, the Bible is a safer pilot
than the liberal wisdom of the
Doctor. The matter cannot be re
garded more grave than as an in
cident of these inquiring and
doubting times, when Christians
will find safety in sailing under
Theke is a whole volume in ex
Secretary Foster’s explanation of
his failure. “My failure simply
illustrates the great folly of per
mitting one’s self to be in debt be
yond the reach of reasonably quick
assets when the hour of difficult
borrowing comes. My business was
largely done with borrowed
money.” And yet the greatest en
terprises that have been undertaken
by prudent and brainy business
men have been carried through on
It is now almost certain that the
Vanderbilt system which now
reaches along the North Platte,
through central • Wyoming to
Casper, will soon be extended on to
Ogden. This promises to become
the great trans-continental line for
freights on account of its low
grade. The Union Pacific, al
though traveling that portion of
Wyoming least adapted to agricul
ture, has yet been of vast benefit
to the state, if in nothing else than
the opening up of its prosperous
coal mines. With the Burlington

Park her future seeme full of
The successful sinking of an ar
tesian well in the suburbs of Pierre
explodes the theory that the great
artesian basin of the Dakotas ter
minated or ran out on the west with
the Missouri river. This new
spouter throws 500 gallons of water
under a pressure of 175 pounds to
the square inch a minute, and
demonstrates that at a depth of
from 1,200 to 1,300 feet the arte
sian basin can be reached almost
anywhere east of the Black Hills.
It is believed now that the basin
extends westward at least to the
Hills. If such prove the case there
is no reason why every foot of land
in the broad expanse of that domain
should not be made ultimately
valuable by means of artesian ir
A young Detroit lawyer lias on
exhibition at the fair a model of a
new aerial electric railway which
he is confident will bring about im
mediately the “revelation” in
transportation which has been so
confidently predicted for the last
ten years. It is a car shaped like
Cleopatra’s needle and swung on
low wheels running on a single rail
elevated about twenty feet from the
ground and securely fastened to
brackets hung on a row of heavy
posts. The power is furnished
through an ordinary trolley pole
from a wire running a few feet over
the track. The car is designed to
reach a speed of 500 miles an hour.
It is managed by automatic devices
by operators stationd along the line
and therefore carries no weight be
yond the load of merchandise and
mail matter. The mail bags are
placed on shelves so arranged that
when the destination of each bag is
reached a projecting arm strikes a
bit of mechanism, the shelf falls,
and as the mail drops into a net
the train whizzes by without the
slightest pause in its speed. It is
claimed that friction is reduced to
a minimum on this road, that a
high spoed can be maintained with
very little power, and that the
trains can be handled with entire
safety. After putting the mail and
express line in successful operation
the inventor, Mr. Widdis, will turn
his attention to the construction of
a car designed for carrying passen
The Crete Vidette has its lantern
in hand and is looking for an honest
man to run for supreme judge on
the republican ticket. That paper
also desires a man who is still alive
—here in body, as it were. These
requirements exclude a very large
army of old stagers who would like
to doze away the few remaining
years of their senility on the
supreme bench. Still the Yidette
is unquestionably right. Let .the
party select the man, as it did
two years ago, for his ability and
fitness for the high and dignified
office Nebraska has some excel
lent lawyers, who would be accep
table to the party and the people
and who would commajid universal
respect. There is no other office in
the state that so imperatively de
mands the very highest order of
men. Integrity, ability and cool,
steady judgment are indispensable
qualities. Give us such a man and
we will not ask where he comes
from or who his friends have been.
