RENNES , Aug. 21. The air of Ren-
ncs is filled with rumors of consplrn-
-cles and predictions of coups de fhea-
"tre , but nothing precise can be ascer
tained. General Mcrcier's attitude dur
ing the last few days has mystified his
-.followers In the case. He ig extremely

The Is preparing something , the exist
ence of which will be revealed in a few
It is now accepted as beyond ques
tion that there is a serious division of
opinion on the part of the generals.
While the case was running smoothly
against Captain Dreyfus they all pulled
together , but since the tide of evidence
began to turn in his favor , as way
notably the case during the testimony
-of Captain Freystaetter and Colonel
Cordler , which proved much more dam
aging to the general staff than the lat
ter anticipated , certain dividing lines
have become manifest between the
various cliques. General Roget , Major
Lauth , Captain Cuignet and M. Gribe-
lln , the principal keeper of thu archives
of the war office , form one coterie ;
-General Mercier and General Gonse
form another and General Billet and
General De Boisedeffre a third. Ac
cording to one report , the first two
coteries intend to throw over General
De Boisedeffre , whom they feel to be
faltering and declare that he Is re
sponsible for all the errors and illegali
ties of the court-martial of 189-1 , thus
making him the scapegoat.
According to another report General
Roget , who was not implicated in 1894
and who only fought against Dreyfus
because he inherited from his prede
cessors the responsibility for so doing
and placed over-confidence in the ac
counts of the matter furnished him by
the general staff , will cut himself loose
from Generals Mercier , Gon/.e and De
Boisedeffre. This is a plausible hy
pothesis , since Roget has assumed
throughout the role of defender of the
army and with a large section of the
nation , and he probably wouH not lose
liy separating himself from the wrong
doers of 1894 and declaring that his
opinion had been changed by the evi
dence given during the present trial.
Yet another story is that the gen
erals are going to give way to the au
thorship of the bordereau in view of
the strong expert evidence , and will
admit that Esterhazy wrote it , alleg
ing , however , that Dreyfus furnished
the information , not direct to Ester-
hazy , but to a third person , who acted
-as Intermediary without Dreyfus
Today's proceedings beh'nd closed
doors will deal with the Question of
Tvhether Captain Dreyfus was in a posi
tion to divulge the information re
garding the artillery which was prom
ised in the bordereau. The session will
be very important and is bound to have
a tremendous influence upon ihe judges
one way or the other , because they are
all artillery officers and will be able
to appreciate such evidence better than
the cryptographic intricacies that have
been laid before them by the hand

ZANESVILLE , Aug. 31. The demo
cratic state convention closed tonight
after a day of dramatic politics. While
there were a half dozen other candi
dates for governor , the McLean men
claimed everything with such confi
> dence that they undertook to be mag
< y nanimous in minor l artp , although
they were at the same time careful
that the star candidate was not
eclipsed. They stated early in the
day that the first ballot would have
none of "the second choice" vote for
McLean , that none of the reserves
would be called out until the second
ballot and that all the candidates
would have their respective votes on
the first ballot. In this play McLean
was nominated on the first ballot by a
half vote and the figuring was so
close that the dramatic scene of
changes on the second ballot with
"second choice" reserves flocking to
McLean's standard did not take place.
The ticket in full as nominated is
A Democrat Succeeds Bland.
ST. LOUIS , Aug. 31. Returns from
four-fifths of the voting precincts in
the Eighth congressional district in
this state and close estimates of the
remaining one-fifth give the following
vote for each candidate : Judge D. W.
Shackleford , democrat , 19,830 ; William
J. Vosholl , republican , 16,801 ; W. R.
Hale , populist , 614. This gives Shack is
leford a plurality of 3,029. Eland's
plurality in 1S96 was 4,581 and in 1SS8
it was 2,843.

FIRST NEBRASKA REGIMENT.
Country , Town and City Give the Boys
n Mont Hearty Welcome.
OMAHA , Aug. 31. All through the
state the Nebraska First regiment was
given enthusiastic greeting. In this
city clanging bells and screaming
whistles , fluttering flags and ringing
cheers , welcomed back to home and
loved ones the boys who , sixteen
months ago , shouldered their muskets
and marched away to bring It back
stained and bullet-torn , but wreathed
with the brightest laurels of the long
campaign. It was a greeting worthy
of the city , worthy of Nebraska and
worthy of the gallant regiment that Is
the proudest possession of the Prairie
state. The soldiers came home to find
that they were greater heroes than
they had ever dreamed of when they
were tempting death In the miasmatic
rice fields of Luzon or facing it in the
murderous storm of Filipino bullets.
Every face they saw was jubilant with
welcome , every hand was outstretched
in cordial greeting and every cheer
that rose from 50,000 patriotic throats
voiced the love and sympathy of
friends who were proud to do them
Almost before daylight the pilgrim
age to the depot filled the motor trains ,
and long before the hour at which the
first section was to arrive the viaduct
was jammed with people , and hun
dreds of busy hands were preparing
the breakfast that was to be the first
offering to the boys , who were pre
sumed to be hungry for home cooking.
The march from the depot up town
was one continued ovation from thou
sands of people who lined the streets.
A little over half of the regiment
came through to this city.
Major Killian said : "I wish we
could have brought in all the boys ,
but 'home pressure was too strong.
When I took a vote of the men of my
battalion there were 229 in favor of
coming here and only twenty-three
who were opposed. On reaching Den
ver they begun to hear from home , and
the committees that were sent out be
gan to get in their work. Last night ,
just before we reached Lincoln , the
Beatrice company voted to come to
Omaha in a body , but a few minutes
later , after the people there had a
chance to work with them , the com
pany decided that it would go directly
home in a body. Yes , we are all tre
mendously glad to get back and no one
can blame the boys for wanting to
see the folks at home. "
Lieutenant Colonel Eager , just as the
assembly call sounded for the parade ,
said : "Two days ago it looked as if
we would have nearly the whole regi
ment in line here , but after we struck
Denver , and still later on the way
across Nebraska , the home ties began
to draw irresistibly. The boys' folks
just picked them up bodily and carried
them away. When a mother threw her
arms around her boy and wept over
him there was no more Omaha and no
more anything but home. "
FALLS CITY , Neb. . . Aug. 31. The
old town was all bedecked with flags
and bunting and hundreds of Falls
City citizens , headed by the band ,
marched to the depot to welcome home
the members of the Fighting First Ne
braska , who went from here , in all
GRAND ISLAND , Neb. , Aug. 31.
Jacob Windnagel , the only Grand Isl

sions from Hebron , DeWitt , Exeter ,
Grafton , Shickley and other points
along the Burlington helped to swell
the crowd , all anxious to give three
cheers and a tiger for the home coming
YORK ; Neb. , Aug. 31. Company A
of the First Nebraska arrived in York
at a late hour. Their arrival was her
alded by shrieking whistles and ring
ing bells. About 3,000 people crowded
and jostled them at the station , but
they slipped through the crowd and
vanished almost at once. Ample pre
parations have been made for "a re
ception to them on September 6 in
which the entire county will join. The
boys are in good physical condition ,

"In the latter part of June near San
Fernando , Aguinaldo was killed by
General Pie del Filar. Pilar visited
him to inquire about the death of Gen

Aguinaldo a liar and pulling a pistol
shot Aguinaldo in the forehead , killing
him instantly. "

Blot Knnln Arthur KavanauRli.
TECUMSEH , Neb. , Sept. 4. A Tecumseh -
cumseh party has received a letter
from Church Howe , United States
consul at Palmero , Sicily , In which Mr.
Howe speaks of having called on
Dewey and met Ensign Arthur Kava-
naugh. The letter is written from
Naples , under date of August 11 , and
reads in part as follows : "Yesterday
I visited with Admiral Dewey and offi
cers on board the flagship Olympia , at
anchor in the harbor of Naples. The
officer on duty to receive us as we
boarded the Olympia was none other
than Arthur Kavanaugh of Tecumseh ,
to whom J needed no Introduction.
Young Kavanaugh is the picture of
health and a fine specimen of a typical
American sailor. He made a splendid
record at Manila , and the officers of
the Olympia speak of him In the high
est terms. He should receive a warm
reception from the people of Tecumseh
and Johnson county on his return

HEMINGFORD , Neb. , Sept. 4. The
large safe in Miller Z. Wildy's grain
office was blown Wednesday night.
The robbers succeeded in wrecking and
opening the outer and inner doors of
the safe , but the steel chest was not
tampered with. It is evident that the
culprits became frightened and left
hurriedly , as a pocket knife , bottle of
glycerine and a syringe , with which
the explosive was applied , were left
near the building and a pouch con
taining about $8 in silver , which had
not been placed in the chest , but was
lying In the safe within full view , was
not molested. There was about $1,300
cash in the chest.
Only Ono Soldier for Albion.
ALBION , Neb. , Sept. 4. Sidney East
man , Albion's representative in the
First Nebraska , returned August 31 on
the evening train from Columbus. All
the business houses were closed. Com
pany M , a delegation of the Grand
Army of the Republic , a brass band ,
the mayor and city council , together
with a concourse of citizens , escorted
the returned soldier from the train to
the Albion house , where he was given
a reception. It is a noteworthy fact
that Mr. Eastman has been in America
a very short time and proves that
America's foreign subjects are loyal
by fighting for his adopted country.

Frank's Visit to the Quartz
A few days after Frank's visit to the
mine , his father took him through the
large quartz mill , where the ore was
crushed and the gold separated from
the rock. Frank had often stood out
side , listening to the roar of the ma
chinery , but now that he was shut in
with the noise , he found it much louder
than he had expected. He could hard
ly hear his own voice , and could not
catch half that his father said , al
though he tried hard to do so. They
went first to where the ore was emp
tied from the cars into a large bin
with a slanting floor. From there it
slid into the rock-crusher , a machine
with \ two great iron jaws , which
opened and shut , breaking the large
lumps of ore into small pieces. It was
fascinating to watch this machine
"chew rocks. " As Frank said , it
looked "exactly like the mouth of a
hungry crocodile. " Next they went up
several , flights of stairs to an immense
bin where the broken ore was stored ,
and from whence it was slowly fed to
the stamps pounding away below. The
stamps were heavy iron hammers ,
fastened to an upright iron rod , which
worked up and down in an iron frame.
Each stamp weighed over six hun
dred pounds , and eight or ten of them ,
going at once , made the building shake ,
as you may well suppose. Little
streams of water ran under the stamps ,
washing out the finely crushed ore and
carrying it to gently sloping copper
plates , covered with quicksilver.
Frank's father explained that the
ciuicksilver caught and held the gold
that was washed over it , but allowed
the dirt to wash away. This dirt ,
however , was too precious to lose , for
contained a good deal of gold com
bined with other minerals. It was
therefore ] dried , put into sacks , and
sent < away to go through other pro-
jesses , by which the gold was obtained.
\s it was now nearly time to quit
ivork for the day , the stamps were
stopped , and the combination of gold
md : quicksilver , called amalgam , was
icraped from the plates into small can-
ras ! bags and taken to the amalgama-
ion room. Frank followed to see what
vas done with it , and found that the
jags ' were pressed until the free mer-
iury oozed out. The amalgam was
hen heated , and the quicksilver
iriven off in the form of vapor. And n
lere at last they had the elusive gold , r
or which men and machinery had a
abored so long. Frank was given a d
iny : bit of the pure , glittering metal , I
ind also a piece of amalgam , forhis
abinet. Nina C. Kyle.o
What Victor Did.
"Teddy , dear ! " called mamma. Qe QVi
"Yes'm , " replied Teddy. He was Vi
itisy over his book on the cool , shaded
iazza , and it was a warm August S1
"I want you to take Victor down to
he river for.a bath. The dog is so hot
the cellar. "
"But , mother , at sundown. "
"Who promised to play the hose for
atrick at sundown ? " :
"I did , " said Teddy , a little smile re-
lacing the sober pucker over his nose.
Dear me , mamma , " he remarked ,
ulling on his cap. "what a thing it is lidi
be man of the house ! " di
"Yes , " returned mamma , "it is a irC
ea tiful thing to be a cheerful little C : (
lan of the house. " wOl
Presently she losed the big St. Ber- OlC
ard , and he came leaping toward Ted- C : (
, eagerness in every movement , for Cl ;
freedom usually meant a bath these Cldi [
ot days. din
"Come on , Vic ! " called Teddy. n <

mdling him. "Just think of me , a atdi
vo-legged boy , waiting upon you , a diai
iiir-legged dog ! " Victor could not ai
link about it , but he licked Teddy's th
hand lovingly , as if to acknowledge iho
condescension , and they started off.
"It seems to me , " said mamma to
Betty , when they sat on the porch later
with their fancy work , "that Teddy an *
Victor have been gone a long time. "
"They're coming this minute , mam
ma ! " murmured Betty , peering through
"Why , Ted , how flushed you look !
Charge. Victor ! That's right. Did ho
have a cool swim , dear.
"Did he ? " cried Ted , excitedly. Then
his round face sobered. "Mamma , " ho
said , "how strangely things happen !
If I had not promised to play the hose
why , you see , mamma , " he contin
ued , breaking off and plunging into the
heart of his story , "when we got down
to the water , there was Patrick's old
father trying to swim for his straw hat ,
which had blown into the river. He's
so old and feeble , I thought it queer he
should be swimming for his hat so
wildly , with all his clothes on. So I
sent Victor in for it , and what do you
think ? "
"What ? " cried Betty , breathlessly.
"He never went near it , but straight
for Patrick's father instead , and
brought him to shore. A wise thing ,
too , for the old man had given out. I
pulled him ashore , dripping , and then
away went Victor after the hat , and
brought that ! The poor fellow grabbed
it and pulled a ten-dollar bill out from
under the leather. He had drawn it
from the bank and thought he had lost
It , and they're so poor ! He cried over
the money ! Vic and I took him home ,
and his sick old wife cried over him.
Oh , I tell you 'twas a wet time ! " he
finished , winking oddly himself.
Mamma and Betty both looked sus
picious also , and Ted said , "Come
here , Vic , till I apologize. You darling
old dog , I am proud to wait on you ,
sir ! " and he buried his arms in the
damp fur of the noble , fellow's shaggy
neck. Lillian L. Price.
Dewey as Ho Is.
Many pictures of Admiral Dewey
have been published in the last few
months , but very few of them show
much of the man as he is. Most of
them show a rather long , narrow face ,
with high , slightly receding forehead
and Roman nose. As a matter of fact ,
there is more breadth and less length
to the face than these pictures show.
It is a square face , and its most prom
inent feature is the rugged under jaw.
The eyes are wide apart and set well
back under heavy brows. The fore
head is high , broad and bold. The
nose is large , and the mouth generous ,
Most of his pictures show more of a
mustache than the admiral wore last
summer. Mustache and hair are al
most white. The complexion is dark ,
as are the eyes. He is not a big man
physically.but he is astonishingly quick
in his actions. His shoulders are so
square and his broad back so straight
that many a man , much his junior ,
might envy him them. His step is
quick and springy ; his whole bearing
is one of alertness and readiness.
His mental process is lightning-like.
He thinks like a flash , and goes all
around his subject in less time than
many a man would take to study one
side. Yet he does not jump to con
clusions , and there are times when he
s very deliberate. He reasons to his
determinations , and , whatever his per
sonal preferences or beliefs , or feelings ,
he can dissociate them entirely from
its work. His logic machine is abso
lutely sound and in the finest order. It
turns out conclusions with mathemat
ical precision. The sharpest critic he
has can hardly find one point in the
long record made in Manila bay where
he can put down his finger and say ,
"There Dewey made a mistake. "
The admiral has a peculiar trick of
thinking out loud , and sometimes when
he is pondering some subject he will
argue with any man whom chance
sends along. On such occasions he
will advance as his definite conclusion
whatever side of the question happens
to be uppermost in his mind and stand
ready to defend it with considerable
warmth. McClure's Magazine. >
Kyes Like Telescope * .
It has often been remarked that civil
ized people tend to become short-sight
ed. This is because in towns and cities
their vision is mostly confined to short
distances. Savage races , on the other
hand , are generally gifted with remark
ably keen sight.and few tribes are more
noteworthy in this respect than the Af
rican Bushmen , whose eyes are verit
able telescopes. This power is , no
doubt , a wise provision of nature , for
Bushmen are a small race , and if they
were not able to see danger a long way
off they would be exterminated by
their various enemies , whether savages
or other tribes or wild beasts. A trav-
2ler in South Africa relates that while
walking one day in company with a
friendly Bushman the savage suddenly
stopped , and , gazing across the plain ,
jried out there was a lion ahead. The' '
traveler gazed long and earnestly into
the direction indicated by the Bush
man , but could eee nothing. "Non
sense , " he said. "There's nothing
here. " And he went forward again ,
ivith the Bushman following at his
icels , trembling and unwilling and
still asserting that he could see a
Ion. Presently the native came to a
lead stop and refused to budge another
nch , for this time , he declared , he
ould see a lioness with cubs , a fact
vhich made the animal more danger-
ius than ever. But the European , who
ould see no lioness , much less her
ubs , pushed ahead. After walking a
uarter of a mile , however , he could
limly make out an object moving
icross the horizon. Still doubting that
could be the object which the Bush-
nan said he had seen , he continued to
idvance , and at last he was able to
listinguish a lioness , with her cubs
iround her , walking leisurely toward

county , Me. , has a Custard Pie associa
tion , which meets annually in a hem
lock grove on the margin of Swan
pond and gorges itself with custard
pie. It grew out of a custard pie eating
contest between two residents of the
town on the annual fast day , thirty-
nine years ago. The match was ad
judged to be a tie , the association was
formed , and everybody in it now
strives to beat everybody else eating
custard pie. . ,

They are the firemen , the policemen ,
the railroad men and the fishermen
on the Newfoundland banks.
