    Searching for Anthrax.
State Veterinarian Boostrom has
returned from Omaha , where he ex
amined cattle on a farm ten miles
from town to ascertain whether or not
anthrax was prevalent. He found no
diseased animals on the place , but in
vestigated the death of two animals
that died last week. The owner of-
the animals skinned one of the car
casses and carried the hide on his
back a distance of a quarter of a mile.
Later a physician said the man had
contracted the disease. He was tak
en to a hospital in Omaha and is now-
being treated. The state veterinar
ian said blood from the man's back
was found by an Omaha physician to
contain bacilli of anthrax. A little
blood was taken from one corner of
the hide and injected into four guinea
pigs. Two of the pigs died and the
others are now sick.

French Architect Sued the Imitators
and the Case Was Decided
Against the Heirs.
The strangest copyright question
ever debated came before a Paris
court , when it was asked to decide the
controverted copyright of a house. An
architect at Boulogne-sur-Seine had
built several apartment houses on a
piece of ground belonging to him and
had devised an original facade of col
ored bricks. He , at least , considered
it original , as when the houses were
finished he had a plate , with an in
scription placed on the walls , to the
effect that the facade of the house
was his copyright and imitations were
prohibited. Seeing a building In Paris
some time afterwards which had just
been completed , the architect thought
that the facade , which was also of
colored bricks , was nothing but an
imitation of his own. He began a
lawsuit against the owner and the
architect for infringement of the copy
right laws , but soon afterward he
died. His heirs , however , continued
the lawsuit , which has now been de
cided by the court. Three experts
were called. They agreed that the
facade of the house at Boulogne-sur-
Seine was peculiar , and might even be
allowed the protection of the copy
right laws ; but , on the other hand ,
the house built in Paris was equally
original and there was no proof that
it had been copied from the others.
The architect , or rather his heirs ,
therefore , lost their case.
Pretty Legend of the Origin of Wine
in Persia , Where It First
Was Made.
The making of wine is said to have
originated with the Persians , who dis
covered the process quite by accident.
One of their earliest kings , Jensheed ,
who , it is said , was only five or six
generations from Noah , was the dis
coverer , or rather , a woman of his
household was.
"He was immoderately fond of
grapes. " says the narrative , which is
found in Sir John Malcolm's "History
of Persia , " 'and desired to preserve
some , which were placed in a large
vessel and lodged in a vault for future
use. When the vessel was opened
the grapes had fermented and their
juice in this state was so acid that
the king believed it must be poison
"He had some vessels filled with It
and 'Poison * written upon each. These
were placed in his room. It happened
that one of his favorite ladies was af
fected with nervous headache ; the
pain distracted her so much that she
desired death. Observing a vessel
with 'Poison' written on it , she took
it and swallowed its contents. The
wine for such it had become , overpow
ered the lady , who fell down into a
sound sleep and awoke much re
"Delighted with this remedy , she re
peated the doses so often that the
monarch's poison was all drunk. He
soon discovered this and forced the
lady to confess what she had done. A
quantity of wine was made and Jen
sheed and all his court drank of the
new beverage , which from the circum
stance that led to its discovery is to
this day known in Persia by the name
of Zeher-e-khoosh , or 'the delightful
poison. ' "
.Not All the Nerve Extracted.
A patient entered a dentist's office
the other day , and , after showing a
swollen cheek for admittance to the
chair , was told that the tooth was
"very bad , " and that the nerve would
need to be removed. The operation
finished , the stranger placed his hat
firmly on his head , leisurely drew on
his gloves and requested that the ac
count be charged. After he was gone ,
the dentist turned to a friend who had
been in the room and said : "Tom I
don't know that man. I am sorry the
operation wasn't successful. " "But it
was successful , " returned the other ,
astonished. "The man was feeling fine
when he left here. Why wasn't it a
success ? " "I didn't extract all the
nerve , " responded the dentist.

"Why Is it ? " queried the youth ,

"I was in the habit of using both te *

me tremble so excessively that I could
