AN AIRSHIP THAT REALLY FLIES ,
In the face of general skepticism the
nearest approach to aerial navigation
actually under guidance was effected
last week , near Berlin , Germany , on
which occasion Count Zeppelin , its in
ventor , with four passengers , made a
trip of 35 miles sometimes directly in
face of the wind , sometimes with it ,
and part of the time obliquely across
it. The whole country traversed was
filled with wondering crowds of people
ple , nobles and peasants , on foot , on
Saale Yields Up Her Dead.
Five more bodies were found on
board the Saale by the divers , making
a total of thirty-four taken from that
vessel. Coroner Hoffman supervised
the removal of them to O'Donnell's
morgue. The work of stopping up port
holes and taking out the cargo ad
vanced so well on the wreck that the
pumping out may begin to-morrow. A
careful search of the waters around
the burned piers in Hoboken was made
but no bodies were found. The whole
number recovered so far is 151.

Probably the worst fight with out
laws that has occurred in this county
since the killing of the famous Dalton
gang at Coffeyville , Kan. , some years
ago , is reported to have taken place
forty miles east of Glencoe , 0. T. , on
the Arkansas river at a point known
as the Black Dog ford , entirely sur
rounded by huge bluffs thickly covered
with brush. It seems that part of the
country known as the Osage nation
has been infested for a long time with
an organized band of cattle thieves
and murderers , of which there seems
to have been no riddance. One United
States marshal and four desperadoes
were killed or mortally wounded.

in different gold , silver and copper
mines , but the value of these is mark
