The peace proclamation of the Em.
peror of China is a remarkable mixture
- - of wisdom and superstition. It declares
' ' that continuance of the war waA rendered -
dered impossible by the gross lniompe-
1. , , . , tence of the leaders and the terrible
condition of the country , and clinches
; th ; argument with the words : "Heaven
had not withheld its angry. The sea
- overflowed the coast and the camps
Pg were submerged. " An enlightened reform -
form administration would seem to be
.q imperative in the Celestial realm.

ire , ; Young Mr. Astor is a fine example of
- ' the power of money in literature. Hay-
; , in g written a book-which , indeed ,
, xn ght have been worse-he gets up an
elegant copy and sends it to King Oscar
' by special messenger. . Mr. Howells or
Mr. Clemens or Mr. Stoddard would
, have ben obliged to rely on a registered
letter post which would have been
very uncertain. But Mr. Astor corners
: royalty with his messenger and insures
a reception. It is useless for contemporaneous -

x.- . Dr. DeSaussure believes that he has
dh covered that the negro race is dying
out in the United States. He tries to
prove his conclusions by local stags-
tics which show more deaths than
births of colored persons in South Carolina -
" - olina cities. In his deduction he is not
supported by the latest census. It may
be contended that the development of
the American negro has been tardier
: , than his friends anticipated when citi-
4 zenship was given to him. Nevertheless -
less , such development is actually taking -

The Chilian congress has recently
enacted legislation guaranteeing the
capital of the Transandine Railway
Company for 20 years at 41 per cent ,
which virtual subsidy will enable the
. completion of the road between the two
oceans. The line will do a great deal
for South America. Its completion will
mean that the long Journeyaround Cape
Born is only for cargoes and that passengers -
' sengers instead of prolonging a voyage
about two weeks can reach the Pacific
from the Atlantic or vice versa in 72
hours. The gam afforded by this route
can be imagined. Chili is brought some
thousands of miles nearer the United
States and England , ilnd she will be ne

Charles R. Sligh of Grand Rapids
has just returneq from England , where
be lias been looking over the prospects
of establishing a furniture trade in
the English market. He is very confident -
dent from his observations that a substantial -
stantial and profitable trade can be established -
tablished if the American manufactures -
es will comply with the English ideas
of style and finish. It is useless , he
thinks , to try to force goods upon the
English market which are not built on
the accepted lines , but by making necessary -
essary changes goods can be manufactured -
tured here and sold in England in competition -
petition with the English manufacturers -
ers at a substantial profit. It is his
purpose to manufacture a line of goods
especially for the foreign trade , following -
ing ideas which he gained abroad.

Hall's Journal of Healthy says :
"Don't economize in bath water. Don't
economize sleep. Don't be stingy with
fun. Laugh all you can. Laughing
shakes up the system , makes the blood
circulate , starts the digestion , warms
the feet , relaxes the nervous system-
in a word , it rests you all over. " That
settles it , if one bad nothing to do but
accept such advice. But how are you
. going to laugh when the rent day is
at hand and the money isn't. Suppose
you have a boil , or the blues , or the
toothache. Everybody likes to laugh ,
but most people have got to be worked
up into a funny mood. Got to have
good digestion , a steady job , something
to eat and something to wear. If every
day were a circus and every night a
minstrel show , that advice would bring
as many testimonials as a patent med-
icine. If time were a clown and trouble
only a jack-in-a-box , life would be one
_ three-score-and-ten-year laugh. But it
Isn't. So far as the advice can be taken ,
tt is good , very good.
A little Atchison girl was given a
picture card at Sunday school , on

The next Sunday the teacher asked

respectively , and unmarried. Theirr
comrades worked hard to save therm

Probable July Weather.
Frofessor Sweezy reports that the
warmest July in the state during the
past nineteen years was that of 1590
with a mean temperature of 78.5 degrees -
grees The coldest July was that of

degrees. The average mean temperature -
ture for Nebraska is 74.9 degrees.
The warmest day in July , was 1594.
The mercury rose to 114 degrees. The
coldest day was in 1891 when the tempe -
pe ature fell ' 37.
The prevailing winds for July are
from the south at Omaha and the southeast -
east at North Platte. The highest velocity -
locity recorded was 84 miles an hour at

One Maniac Httls Another.
Governer Holcomb has received a letter -
ter of explanation from Dr. Damarell , i
superintendent of the Hastings Asylum
for incurable Insane , in relation to the
death of Patient Wood , billed by Car-
roll. Dr. Damarell says that Carroll
attacked Wood June 15 , beating him
over the head with a piece of stone.
Wood was rescued from the clutches of
the maniac and taken to his room.
For the following two days Wood
seemed to be on the road to recovery ,
but suffered a relapse and died on the
morning of June 18. Dr. Damarell is
emphatic in his statement that there
was no attempt at concealment , but
says the utmost publicity was given to
the affair. However , it is true that
the governor was not informed of the
tragedy until after June 20 , and then
not until he had read an account of the
affair in the papers. The dispatches
from Hastings conveyed the intelligence -
gence that the patient had been killed
on the spot and at the time the attack
was made. This statement is evident
ly wrong. t- , ' , . C.- , , .
Robbed the Creamery.
Bert Carter and Jess Wilson were arrested -
rested by Sheriff Hunter of Custer county -
ty , upon a warrant charging them with
stealing about 800 pounds of butter
from the Sargeant creamery. After
the arrest the butter was traced to
where it had first been placed , in W. J.
Wood's cellar , and from there taken in
the night to the ice house , where it
was found by the officers. It is claimed
Wilson had no knowledge of the theft.
but believed it was Carter's butter , and
that he accompanied Carter for com-
pany. Carter claims the creamery
owed him and would not pay him and
that he he took the butter to get his

Now Poor and a Physical
Wreck-Still Believes In
the Medium Frauds.
NEW YORK , July -Because of his
belief in spiritualism and through the
impositions of a professional medium ,
a W. N. Yost , the inventor of the
typewriter , is living apart from his
family in a furnished flat in West Fif-
ty-fourth street , attended by a friend
and provrdedwlthnone of the luxuries
of life which are necessary to a man
70 years old. He has expended time
and thousands of dollars in pursuing'
the ignis fatuus which spiritualists
have danced before his eyes. He
acknowledges that he is poor and a
physical wreck. Yet he still believes
in the men who imposed upon him ,
and declares that he is as certain about
the things he believes lie has seen as
lie is that there is a heaven. He was
a man of fine intellect , a man- who
still has a family who is devoted to
him , yet is almost deserted , is scarcely
able to talk , much less continue his
once brilliant career. The man who
was the prime mover in the conspiracy
of mediums is summering at Onsett
When visiting the world's fair in
Chicago some acquaintances told Mr.
Yost that they knew of a young girl
named Lizzie Bangs , who was able to
secure the most remarkable statements -
ments from dead worthies by means of
an ancient and very decrepit typewriting -
ing machine. Mr. Yost visited the
medium and found that pieces of paper
were apparently taken from the cylinder -

Bones of history from Moses to Gar-
Yost was immenselyi interested because -
cause here was an actual exemplifica-
ticn of his own idea of what spirits
could do with a typewriter in case
they felt so inclined. Miss Bangs
lived on Elizabeth street , Chicago , and
Mr. Yost visited her several titres and
presented her with a new typewriter
which did infinitely better work than
the old one. But Hiss Bangs was an
independent medium and it has never
been intimated that she was responsible -
ble for. Mr. Yost's misfortunes. He
was , however , convinced that typewriting -
writing could be done in this way and
he made up his mind that in order fo

the departed he must have a medium
of his own. He accordingly surrounded -
rounded himself with a galaxy of
young men who were represented as

Reports of a Sensational Religious Riot
Lacking all Confirmation.
EvANsvIr.r.h , Ind. , July 8.-Last
night a sensational report wassent out
from English that there had been a
terrible religious riot at a German
Catholic picnic at Siberia , an isolated
village of Perry county , Thursday
afternoon. The report declared that
anti-Catholics , mad with liquor , had
attacked the Germans , and that 1,000
persons had participated in the conflict -
flict which had resulted in three deaths
and the injury of over fifty persons ,
To-day telegrams of inquiry were
sent to Troy , Cannellton , Tell City ,
Huntingburg and other points in that
vicinity , and all answered that they
knew nothing about the reported riot.
It looks like a fake.

The reports were unanimous and said
that the evidence showed a condition

Reports of the Experts in Regard to the
Steamship Colima Disaster.
WASITINOTON , July o.-General Dumont -
mont , supervising inspector general of
steam vessels , has received from the
inspector of the San Francisco district
the following report of the loss of the
Pacific mail steamer Colima :
"We have investigated tht matter of
this most deplorable disaster , taking
testimony of a number of its surviving
passengers and crew , including that of
Third Officer 0. C. hIansen , who is the
only officer saved ; and also of others
who were competent to speak of the
"From the evidence there appears to
have been no danger anticipated until
five or ten minutes before the ship
went down. It appears that there
was good discipline maintained on
board in the deck and the engine departments -
partments , all orders having been
obeyed , and we therefore can attach
no blame to the third officer , Mr. lfan-
sen. Captain Taylor was in charge on
the bridge on the steamer all the
morning of May 27 until she foundered
and it may have been that lie was attempting -
tempting to keep her off before the
sea , or to wear her around on the other
tack when she was caught in the
trough of the sea and thrown on her
beam ends. But without his testimony
or that of his first officer and the chief
engineer of the steamer , it is impossible
to decide thetrue cause of the disaster.
" 1Yith regard to the steamer Colima
there can be no doubt that she was a
staunch and seaworthy vessel. She
was inspected March 15 , 1505 , and her
hull , boilers and equipments found to
be in good order. Sire was examined
in dry dock May 14 , 169 ; , and her bottom -
tom found in good condition , and new
blades put on her propeller. She was
classed 33 L. 11 in "Bureau Veritas , "
which is the highest class which that
society awards to steam vessels. The
Colima was an iron vessel , built in
1873 at Chester , Pa. , new boilers in
1887 at San Francisco , Cal of 2,905.05
tons gross , 2,1.13 x , tons net , and was
valued at $ _ 25,000.
"The exact number of lives lost is
not obtainable at present for the reason -
son that the number of way passengers -
gers received is not yet reported by
agents to the company's office at San
Francisco. The number so far known
with any degree of certainty to be lost
is eighty-five passengers and sixty-

Elizabeth Lease against George A.
