The large barn of Church Howe &
Son at Walnut Grove stock farm was
totally consumed by fire last week with
all its contents except the horses, which
were saved. Between sixty and seventy
tons of hay, 500 bushels of corn, some
twenty- carriages, buggies, sulkies and
carts, twenty sets of harness, saddles
and blankets, together with wagons
and farm implements which were stor
ed in the barn, were consumed. The
fire extended to the large granary ad
joining, which contained about 2,000
bushels of wheat which was destroyed.
Origin of the fire is not known. The
loss is about $14,000, with $8,000 insur
William Wiygext, a Valley county
farmer, has fed a good deal of wheat
to his horses and hogs, at one time and
another, and has learned that it should
be fed sparingly. It is a strong feed,
and if given to the stock in generous
quantities they will not chew it prop
erly and loss of grain and injury to
the stock are the consequences. Back
in Michigan he had learned that hogs
turned onto wheat stubbie did well and
when he came to Nebraska and found
corn high priced and wheat plenteous,
he began feeding it and shoveled the
grain out bountifully, just as he would
corn. Hut his hogs did not do well.
By and by the supply of wheat got low
and he began to be more sparing, and
his hogs picked up amazingly.
A Beatrice correspondent of the Lin

harvest. His place is irrigated by
pumping water from the river to a hill
from where it is allowed to run back
over the land. Some of the results are
so large that many doubt them when
told. He raised tomatoes for the can
ning factory which have averaged
twelve to sixteen ounces in weight, and
on one vine were counted 310 tomatoes
in various stages of development. He
estimates his crop will yield an average

Washing:ton Naval Experts Declare That
the Japanese Cadets Outclass Two
Thirds of the Cadets of This
Country — Superior to A1A
Others in Swordsmanship
and Athletic Work.
Washington, Sept. 25. — Admiral
Ito, who commanded the Japanese
fleet in the battle in the Yalu rivet
last Monday when a far stronger
Chinese fleet was disastrously de
feated and nearly all of the other
commanders of the Japanese war
ships engaged, were edueat.-d at the
United States naval academy at An
napolis. The admiral was the second
Japanese cadet to graduate from the
school. Naval officers declare that
the Japanese cadets outclassed two
thirds of the Western cadets of this
country and were superior to all oth
ers in swordsmanship and athletic
work. The Japanese at Annapolis
number eleven. All of them took
high rank for scholarship and sea
manship and displayed rare skill in
acquiring knowledge of naval tactics.
Few of the ordnance officers of the
navy accept the recent engagement
betw-een the Japanese and Chinese
fleets in the Yalu river as a demon
stration of the superiority of fleet un
armored cruisers over heavily pro
tected but moderate speed battle
ships. One of these officers declared
yesterday that he believed that later
reports would show that the Chinese
war ships were not badly damaged.
He made an elaborate argument in
defense of the armored ships.
Reparation to Be Immediately Made for
the Assassination of Missionaries.
San Francisco, Sept. 25. —The
steamer llio Janeiro, which arrived
to-day from Hong Kong and Yoko
hama, brought advices to September
9. These report that the murder of
two missionaries by Chinese soldiers
has been followed by the assassina
tion of a French customs officer on the
frontier of Tonquin. These acts of
violence are embarassing the Pekin
authorities, and it is announced re
paration will be offered in the case of
the Rev. Mr. Wylie, by beheading
his assailants, rebuilding the
wrecked chapel, paying a sum
of money to the family of the
victim, and, the English newspapers
Shanghai report, by expressing re
gret in an imperial edict—a form of
atonement which assuredly would
never have been vouchsafed in less
troubled times. As regards the out
rages on Frenchmen, ships of war of
that nation will demand reparation.
The work at strenghtening the de
fenses along the Chinese coast is con
tinued,mainly by posting floating bat
teries at points of supposed danger.
The trophies captured at Kong-IIwan
and Asan will soon be exhibited in
Tokio. The collection is large and
varied, consisting of over fifty battle
flags, arms of all descriptions, an
immense quality of clothing, personal
adornments and musical instruments.
Claims for Many Thousand Acres Still
Pending:—Prompt Action Favored.
Washington, Sept. 25.—There is
still pending in the interior depart
ment claims for over .10,000 acres of
land granted to railroads and wagon
roads many years ago. There are
various reasons why these have not
been patented in the various com
panies, the chief of which is that
they have not all been surveyed.
In the past four years about 10,000.
000 of acres have been passed by pa
tent to the companies claiming them.
At present there are in the course of
examination in the general land of
fice a great many lists of land, which
will no doubt be patented in a short
time. Commissioner Lamoreaux be
lieves that all grants where there
can be no question as to the right of
the company to the land should be
passed to patent as soon as possible
and it is understood that Secretary
Smith is also of the opinion that
it would be well to have these un
questioned selections of grants pat
ented and dispoSed of.' The records
show that during the fiseal year end
ing June 30 not much more than
500,000 acres were patented in rail
road grants. With the mineral land
difficulty settled and the proposition
for the survey of the railroad lands
as fast as the companies desire, there
is a possibility of large increases in
the amounts passed to patent in the
next few years.
No Hail for an Alleged Lyneher.
Memphis, Tenn., Sept. 25.—This
morning Judge L. P. Cooper of the
criminal court refused to grant the
application for bail by M. Striclc
faden, charged with being implicated
in the Kerrville lynching, holding
that while the proof was hardly evi
dent as developed the presumption of
Strickfaden's entering into the con
cp iracy was great.
Burglars Blow Op?n a Safe.
Macon, Mo., Sept. 2.">. — Burglars
entered the Burlington railroad
freight depot this morning and blew
open the iron vault of the Adam's Ex
press company but secured nothing
valuable. Policeman Jackson ran to
the depot and a stranger jumped out
of the window and ran. Jackson
fired two shots at him without effect.
Smothered Coder Fine Salt.
Wichita, Kan., Sept, 25.—This
morning in the salt works at Lyons,
Kan., by the giving way of some sup
ports, George Hamlin, an employe,
was buried beneath a great quantity
of fine salt and smothered before he
could lie rescued.
Many of the Detail* Anrlou* to Retire
—Civilian* Ready for the Jobs.
Washington, Sept. 25.—There are
now pending in the interior depart
ment quite a numb -r of cases where
army officers who have been serving
as Indian agents have applied to be
relieved from their present positions.
It is probable that upon the return of
Secretary Smith quite a number of
cases will be prepared and sent to the
president, naming civilians as their
successors. There are, however, many
applications on file by army officers,
and it is probable that some of these
may be selected.
“The Indian authorities are satis
fied that tlie Indian service taken as a
whole is neither improved or injured
by the appointment of army officers
as Indian agents. In some instances
the \sork has been performed better
by army officers and in others not as
well, it depending upon the character
of the man and not upon his military
or civil life.
“The Indians are no longer war
like,” said an officer of the interior
department, “and we can control
them by civil as well as by military
agents. To some officers the duty of
Indian agent is extremely distasteful,
while others are anxious to serve in
that capacity. It is often found that
the former class are efficient, while
the latter are the kind of men we
don’t want. Good business men who
are clear headed and have discrimi
nation will make good Indian agents.
Plenty of such men can be found out
side of the army.”
An arm}- officer discussing the sub
ject of officers as Indian agents,
says there are many officers who are
very much opposed to details as
Indian agents because they do not
have the opportunity to keep them
selves in complete military training
and ready for examinations or pro
motions when ordered. There are
others, he says, who have become dis
appointed in the service and are
eager to accept positions which
separate them from the. active army
life. __
An Organization Formed to Boycott
Justices Employing Outsiders.
Chicago, Sept. 25. — Eighty Cook
county constables held a meeting last
night and perfected an organization
for the protection of their craft from
so called invaders. The meeting was
mainly brought about by the cutting
into what the regular constables con
sider their vested rights by outside
constables who have figured largely
in the writ of replevin business in
connection with the gambling house
raids. The session was a lively one.
Officers were elected, but not without
considerable electioneering. The fol
lowing was passed:
Resolved, That it is the sense of
this meeting that we take away, if
possible, the power of a justice of the
peace who unlawfully authorizes per
sons outside of regular constables to
serve writs.
The constables will decide at their
next meeting, it is said, not to serve
any writs for any justice who hires
outsiders. They will boycott him.

Ai.i.egan, Mich., Sept. 25. — Irt
Hurd, a cooper, left home last evening
stating that he was going to a neigh
boring village to stay all night. In
stead, he appeared to have watched
his house. His wife says that while
she was kneeling in prayer bv her
bedside a man entered her room. She
reached for her revolver and shot
him, turned up the light and dis
covered that it was her husband. The
ball lodged in his brain and he lived
two hours but did not regain con

The Terrible Experience of a Well Known
Official's Wife—A Story That Ap
peals to Every Mother in
the l.tind.
From the Chattanooga, Term., Press.
No county official in East Tennessee
is better known and more highly es
teemed than Mr. J. C. Wilson, Circuit
Court Clerk of Uhea County, at Dayton,
the home of Mr. Wilson. He enjoys
the confidence and respect of all class
es, and in the business community his
word is as good as his bond, .lust now
Mr. Wilson is receiving heartiest con
gratulations from his numerous friends
because of the restoration to robust
health of his estimable wife, who has
for years been a helpless invalid. Mrs.
Wilson’s high standing in society, and
her many loveable traits of character
have won her a host of friends, and tier
wonderful recovery has attracted wide
spread attention.
As the Press was the medium of
bringing to the invalid lady’s atten
tion the remedy that has effected her
remarkable cure, a reporter was sent
to Dayton to interview Mrs. Wilson, in
order that the general public might
have the benefit of the sufferer's expe
rience and be made aware of the treat
ment that wrought such a marvelous
change in her condition. The reporter
was welcomed at the Wilson home, and
the enthusiastic lady with becoming
reluctance gave the history of her af
fliction and the manner in which she
was relieved:
“Yes,” said Mrs. Wilson, “I was for
8 years an invalid with one of the most
distressing afflictions woman can suffer.
For 8 years 1 moped around, dragging
myself with difficulty and pain out of
bed. My little ones went untrained
and were greatly neglected, while I
looked listlessly and helplessly at the
cheerless prospect before me and them.
I suffered the most intense pains in the
small of my back, and those seemed
even greater in the region of the
stomach, extending down to the groins.
I suffered agony sleeping or awake.
Despair is no word for the feeling
caused by that dreadful sensation of
weakness and helplessness i constantly
“I was treated for my trouble by sev
eral local physicians, but they were
able to give me only temporary relief
by the use of sedatives and narcotics.
1 had almost given up all hope of ever
securing permanent relief when I saw
an account in the Press of a cure which
Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills had effected.
I decided to try them, as 1 knew the
lady who had been cured and had great
confidence in her statement, i began
to take the pills in October, 1893, and
in two months I was doing light house
work and attending to the children
without any bad effects or weakness,
such as 1 had formerly experienced.
Hitherto, I had been unable to retain
any food, but now my appetite grew
stronger, and with it came back that
old, healthy and hearty tone of the
stomach. Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills
cured me and I assure you the cure has
brought a great change in our home.
I can now rejoice in my husband's suc
cess, for I feel that I have something
to live for. Who has a better right to
feel this than a mother? One thing
more. I have recommended these pills
to others, and many of the women of
Dayton have taken them with good re
sults, and it is my greatest pleasure to
recommend to every suffering woman
a remedy that has done so much for
An analysis proves that Dr. Williams’
Pink Pills for Pale People contain in a
condensed form all the elements nec
essary to give new life and richness to
the blood and restore shattered nerves.
They are an unfailing specific for such
diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial
paralysis, St Vitus’ dance, sciatica,
neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous head
ache, the after effects of la grippe, pal
pitation of the heart, pale and sallow
complexions, that tired feeling result
ing from nervous prostration; all dis
eases resulting from vitiated humors in
the blood, such as scrofula chronic ery
sipelas, etc. They are also a specific
for troubles peculiar to females, such
as suppression, irregularities, and all
forms of weakness. In men they effect
a radical cure in all cases arising from
mental worry, overwork, or excesses of
whatever nature.
Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills for Pale Peo
ple are now manufactured by the Dr.
Williams’ Medicine Company, Schenec

A Costly Bit of Hope.
A man who was arrested and jailed
in New Orleans told a pitiful tale of in
justice to a visitor who talked to him
through the cell door. ‘-Why, this is
an awful mean country,” said the pris
oner. "Do you know I am in here for
two years for picking up a piece of rope
on the sidewalk?” The visitor began
to take an interest in the case and to
express sympathy. "I won't deceive
you any further,” interrupted the pris
oner. “The truth is there was a line
pair of horses on the other end of that
rope.”—New York World.

Bishop Kruno Discusses Various Matter*
Observed by Him In Home.
Bai.timore, Mel., Sept. 24.—Bishop
J. ,1. Keene, rector of the Catholic
university, Washington, who arrived
here last evening ns the guest of Car
dinal Gibbons, went to Rome July 30
for the purpose of personally seeing
the pope and tolling him of the Cath
olic university and the condition of
nffaifs in that institution. He had
two audiences with the pope, who ex
pressed himself as delighted with the
state of affairs at the university.
in speaking of the relations of the
quirinal to the Vatican, Bishop Keano
said that the policy of the pope, in
view of the recent overtures in Italy,
was the union of the church with the
great democratic powers of the future
—that is America and France. This
was his hope, and toward it all his re
markable energies were bent. He, as
a clear sighted statesman, was op
posed to militarism and despotism and
was consequently in sympathy with
France rather than with the triple
alliance,of which Italy formed a part.
The pope thought that a universal
suffrage, controlled by moral and re
ligious influences, should decide the
great social questions of the future.
The social questiou the pope recog
nized as the great one of the future.
Bishop Keane considers the pope
the greatest living man to-day. He
is 84 years of age, always rises not
later than 6 o’clock, does not go to
bed before 1 or 2 o'clock in the morn
ingand is the most abstemious person
