Fred Moffit , clerk of the Hotel De
Fair , shot and instantly killed William
Hough at Hyannis at the hotel office.
Hough attacked Mofflt with an iron
poker and Moffit used a revolver in
self defense. Hough was of a r-iiar-
relsome disposition and was often in
trouble. Moffit has resided there for
some months and has always borne a
peed reputation. Moffitt surrendered
himself to the deputy sheriff. Rumor

A farmer living south of Wymore has
settled the question of whether a far
mer can sell his milk to a skimmine
station with profit.He has milked two
cows during the last year and has re
ceived exactly $60 for the milk , besides
what he used for household purposes.
In addition to this he has sold two
calves at $10 each , making a total of
§ 80. The experiment shows that a far
mer with twelve cows and 100 hens
can live entirely independent of the
droughts or hot winds.
The $45,000 appropriation for wolf

by the state. This course , it is believ
ed , will facilitate payments and in
large measure relieve the department
from the considerable labor of dealing
direct with each individual claimant.

braska house and for twenty-five years
one of the foremost lawyers and politi
cians in southeastern 'Nebraska , has
left his home city and the state , never ,

alleged sharp practices in his law busi
ness and other shortcomings.

of the serious injury of Edward God
win , an employe of the stock yards

company delivered a car at the yards

subsequently settled for the amount
which the company now seeks to re
cover from the railroad.

MANILA. April 17. ( New Yorl
World Cablegram. ) Lawton's expedi
tion has been ordered to Manila an <
he will return immediately. All terri
tory taken by Lawton will be evacu
ated. The captured launches will bi
returned to their former owners , fron
whom the Filipinos took them. Law
ton authorized this statement at Paet <
this morning :
"The present prospect is that 100 ,
000 troops will be necessary to pacif :
the islands. The difficulties are thos't
of fighting guerrillas in a tropica
country. With a brigade I could forci
my way to the end of the island if I die

But leaving garrisons behind soon eat :
up my force. I regret the evacuatior
of the territory taken. "
During the absence of Major Genera
Lawton's expedition to the Santa Cru :
district , on the southeastern side ol
Laguna de Bay , the insurgents have
been concentrating at the northern em
of the lake , near Pasig , and the Amer
ican scouts report that several thou

General Lawton's expedition is nov ,
on its way back.
Two hundred and fifty Chinamen
from Santa Cruz have arrived here.
They left the town , owing to their
fear that the rebels , on re-entering it ,
would wreak vengeance upon them
for favoring the Americans.
War has become so commonplace an
experience to Manila that the average
citizen no longer thinks of bpcomics
excited over it. Every sI iic some
point of the horisoa is crimsoned by
thp reflection from burning huts , kin
dled by the soldiers to deprive the in
surgents of hiding places. Every night's
quiet is shaken by the firing from the
line encompassing the city. Every
morning brings its pitiful little con
signment of uncomplaining wounded
to the hospital. Manila forms an
American oasis in the island of Lu

rifle , a section of bamboo stalk filled
with rice , a handful of green peppers

The Chinese are the scavengers of the
