CoiiRrobS evidently docH.not desire to
ndd n few more Btnrs to the constollu-
iion on tlio untlonnl Imnnor BO close be
fore the Fourth of July.
In spite of the fnct tlmt the state cam-
pnign is wide open Norfolk will cole-
brute the Fourth of July mid give the
people who nttond n royal good tlmo.
Ex-Governor Poyntor made n strong
epocoh before the populist convention ,
declaring tlmt pnrty integrity demanded
the nomination of a populist for gov
ernor , yet the convention endorsed a
democrat. There nro strange doings
where two parties and "harmony" got
The populists and democrats Imvo
fused on a ticket but it is questionable
If they will bo able to fuse the necessary
votes. Not all who have done so in
yearn that are past will follow the load
of the state conventions. A largo nnm-
berlmvo b ou voting the republican
ticket and nro perfectly satisfied with
The wonderful growth being made by
potatooshns effectually shattered prices
for that necessity , and boiled , fried ,
baked or stowed , they will from this
tiuio on lese that silver taste that has
distinguished them for about n year.
They will not bo in the list of delicacies
this fall and winter , not in this section
at least. Nothing less than a oyclono
or earthquake can do the crop up now.
All the populist delegates will now re
turn to their homes and tell the faithful
that it is all right that while the dem
ocrats have named the governor and
otherwise exercised the large shnro of
influence nt the fusion convention and
dictated to what was once the big end
of the fusion combine it'is their duty to
pull off their coats and hurrah for the
nominee of the convention and they
will submissively follow.
The loss of life by the South Dakota-
Iowa storm of Tuesday night was much
exaggerated by first reports , but the loss
of property and crops is immense. The
property loss is now said to be fully a
million dollars. Country property suf
fered more than that of towns and
cities. The sufferers do not need to
worry over their unfortunate condition ,
however. Unless something disastrous
happens in this state , Nebraska will
have an abundance of produce to supply
Prospects for the passing'of the inter-
oceanic canal bill are more favorable
than they have been at any other time
during the session of congress. The
house conferees have decided to accept
the senate bill in favor of the Panamtt
route , and it is likely that the measure
will be passed , thus taking a long step
in support of America's commercial
supremacy , which has been developing
BO rapidly during tne past few years.
"With the completion of this canal
America will bo in position to enter the
contest for the trade of the Orient in
earnest and water communication be
tween the two coasts of the country will
be materially shortened with the result
that relations between coast points will
be closer and firmer.
"What's this ! The State Journal has
it that W. H. Thompson confided to a
Lincoln friend that if ho became the
fusion nominee for governor he would
put f5,000 into the campaign and give
the republicans a merry chase. Surely
someone must be mistaken ; In the
lirst place , one of the great common
people has certainly not accumulated
$5,000 that he can afford to blow in ,
during these days of republican misrule
And official incompetency ; in the next
urohoso the will of
union fuRionlfltn | have
for n IDng time now fought nil forma of
wealth and would hardly bo guilty of
nominating n man with f J > ,000 to spend
on an election , The Journal'a state
ment must bo a pipe dream , and all good
f unionists will at once proceed to brand
it us Bucli.

The Yciir INtfl.
The yonr 1881 was n chronological
oddity of the oddest kind , besides being
n mathematical curiosity seldom equal
ed. From right to loft and left to right
It rends the HUIUC. Eighteen divided
by 2 gives 0 ns a quotient ; 81 divided
by 0 gives 0 ; If divided by 0 , the quo
tlent contains n 0 ; If multiplied by n
the product contains two Os ; 1 and 8
arc 0 ; 8 and 1 nro I ) . If the 18 he placed
under the 81 mid lidded , the sum Is 00.
If the figures be ntlded thus 1 , 8 , 8 , I
it will give 18 as the result. Heading
to the middle from right to left or
from left to right It is 18 , and IS Is
two-ninths of 81. By adding , dividing
and multiplying ten Os are produced ,
being one 0 for each year to the begin
nlng of the lust decade of the nine
No wonder the fortune tellers , the ns
trologurs and the mathematicians ,
weave so many strange fancies around
tlmt curious combination of figures. It
mny Imvo been what Induced Mother
Shlpton to end her prophetic Jingle
with , "And nt last the world to nn end
shall come in eighteen hundred and
eighty-one. ' '
A Wonder In I'cnmnitnhlp.
Among the curiosities preserved by
the Minnesota Historical society Is n
lithographed copy of nn engrossment
of the cmiuiclpntlon proclamation. The
engrosser , ono W. II. Pratt of Daven
port , In. , was so very skillful In his
manipulations of the pen tlmt he sue
ceeded , by cnreful and exact Blinding
of the letters , In producing n very ex
celleiit portrait of Abraham Lincoln
the author of the famous document , In
the center of the copy. In other words ,
the lettering Itself Is mudc to form a
portrait of Mr. Lincoln. There were
probably n large number of them or
innlly struck off , but copies of It nro
now very rnre. As n specimen of pen
work it Is certainly very unique.
Wood In Kto'Ptlim StonrvrorU.
Probably the oldest .timber In the
world which has been subjected to the
nso of mnii In tlmt found In the nnclent
temples of Egypt In connection with
the stonework , which Is known to be
at leant 4,000 years old. This , the only
wood used In the construction of the
temples , is In the form of tics holding
the end of one stone to another. When
two blocks were laid In place , an cx-
cavntlon about nn inch deep was made
In each block , in which a tie shaped
like nn hourglass Is driven. It is there
fore very difficult to force any stone
from its position.
A prince received from the house
steward his monthly statement of ac
counts , In which occurred the item of
1.50 lire for the keep of n cat in the
palace. The prince immediately wrote
in tbo margin , "If there arc no rats in
the bouse , it Is no good keeping a cat ;
if there arc any rats , the charge for
the keep of the cut is superfluous. "
And ho struck out the Item.
A Snoce .
"Mrs. Dllkins learned to play poker
so she could keep her husband in at
"And does be stay in now ? "
"I should say so. She wins so much
of his spending allowance that ho
hasn't the price of a drink. " Philadel
Prlma Facie Evidence.
The late Lord Morris on ona occasion
gave a characteristic illustration of the
meaning of "prlmn facie evidence. "
"If , " ho said to the Jury , "you saw
a man coming out of a public house
wiping his mouth , that would bo prlmn
facie evidence that ho hnd been having
a drink. "
