Circle for Straight Vote Will Appear
Five Times.
lrrom Monday's Daily.
TUB Niws this morning commenced
on the ballots for Madison county , the
copy for them having boon retained un
til today by County Clerk Winter because -
cause of rumors of changes. The eight
days allowed for any such changes con
templated closed with today and there is
110 longer an opportunity to change the
{ personnel of the ticket should such
change be desired. There has been
some question about the form of the bal
lot at the head whore the circles are pro-
videdjfor o straight party vote. The sam
ple sent out by the secretary of state
provided for but one circle for the two
fusion parties. It was shown that in
Borne counties where there was no fus
ion it would be impossible for either of
the parties to use the circle to indicate a
Btraight party vote as it could not bo
told whether the voter desired to reg
ister for the democratic or peoples independent -
dependent ticket. The secretary of
Eteto compromised the matter by leaving
it in the discretion of the county clerks.
Mr. Winter desired that the ballots
for Madison county be printed with the
two circles , one after the democratic
nud one after the peoples independent
jparty at the head of the ticket. Al
though there is very complete fusion
here , there are ROIIIO candidates In the
county whoso vote might bo nffuotod by
he tine of but one olrulo and to take no
chances Mr. Winter ordered that the
wo circles be used ,
There has boon no ohango in the rep
resentative ticket Hlnco the convention.

Reason for the Alarm.
The fire company is as often called for
imaginary dangers as real ones. A
bucket of water often extinguishes the
fire before their arrival. Their duty to
bo at the fire is never questioned.
To those in front of the bla/.o on the
hill Thursday at the time the alarm
was turned in the danger seemed im
minent. The roaring of the ( lames , the
smoke , and the wind coming with such
a velocity as to give the appearance of
the fire being in the cornfield directly
adjoining the barns. Had it boon
there the time spent in "ascertaining the
cause" would have been fatal to the
barns and horses.
The property owners thank the fire
company for the prompt response and
assure them that under the same cir
cumstances they would receive another
cell notwithstanding the "cost ot the
city. " W. H. JOHNSON.

Joe Phipps' Jugular Has a
Close Call.
Man Who Did the Cutting Was a
Stranger and Disappeared Soon
After the Affray Stranger's Hand
Also Cut.
What came very oloso to being a BOO-
md edition of the sensation of ton days
igo when George Ilodgos , colored had
its throat out from oar to ear , took place
.11 the city Saturday night , and Joe
'hlpps , the colored hostler , was the vie
1m , Ills assailant being n stranger who
ms boon working on the gas line ex
cavations , who claimed Battle Crook as
its homo. Phipps' throat was out and
the knife used to do the cutting barely
nissod severing his jugular \oiti.
The trouble grow out of a game of
cards in which three were engaged. It
s said that Phipps won some of the
stranger's money and that the stranger
then asked him to sot up the drinks.
This Phipps' refused to do and his ro
fmal drew some hot words from the
stranger , for which ho was struck by
Phipps , The stranger thou drew
kulfo and In the scrimmage the colored
man's throat was out and the hand of
ho stranger also sustained n severe out.
Thinking that ho had out Phipps fatally
the stranger gathered up his personal
belongings and loft the city by the
shortest possible routo.
Phipps Mod freely from his wound ,
but after having it dressed by a physi
clan is in a fair way to recover unless
blood poisoning sots in. Ho was able to
bo about as usual this morning and np
poarod to bo very well fixed financially
as a now suit of clothes and a now hat
adorned his person. His physician
suys that if the out had boon a quarter
of an inch deeper , Phipps' jugular vein
would have boon severed and ho might
have bled to death.
No arrests have yet boon made In con
nection with the trouble. Both parties
to the fight are probably very willing

Slayer of Anna Broyorand Her Father
Is Before Court.
From Tuesday's Dally ,
The trial of Gottlieb Niegenfiud , the
Pierce murderer , is on at Pierce before
District Judge J. F. Boyd of Nellgh
and much interest is being taken in the
caso. The trial was called for 1:30
yesterday afternoon and the time up to
the last reports was consumed in select
ing a jury.
The panel of 24 jurymen has been
exhausted , BIX of thorn being discharged
because they were opposed to capital
punishment. The judge has issued an
order for the sheriff to summon n veil-
ire of 48 men to servo as jurymen. It
la considered tLat it will bo very difll-
cult to secure a jury as almost everyone
In the vicinity of Pierce has formed an
opinion regarding the case.
Judge N. D. Jackson of Noligh is
prosecuting , assisted by County Attor-
oy II , F. Barnhardt of Piorco. The
ofoiiHo will bo conducted by J. II.
Jerryman of Crolghtou and Goo. T.
lolloy of Plaiuviow. '
Nolgouflnd made quite a stir in court
when ho appeared. Ho shows no effect
f the wounds ho received during his
aptnro and has lost the limp that was
ausod by one of the wounds. Ho ap-
team quite unconcerned regarding the
utcomo of the trial and seems to fool
onfldont of his acquittal.
It Is considered that it will bo several
days before the interesting phase of the
jose is reached.
A Modern Ursus.
A dispatch from Fremont says :
Frank Uohlliig , sou of Louis Uohllpg , a
, voll known farmer residing in Logan
township , in this county , has equalled
the feat performed by Ursus , as related
u "Quo Vodis. "
Young Uohllug and his two brothers
were driving a number of bulls along
the road , when one of the animals broke
ute a cornfield.
Uohltug pursued the bnll and became
separated from his brothers. After run
iilng some distance , the angry animal
Huddonly turned and charged upon the
young man.
Uohllug had no weapons and there
was no time to run. He grasped the
bull by the horns and an exciting struggle
glo took placo.
When his two brothers came running
to the scouo , they found that Frank had
sucoeodod in throwing the bull and was
sitting on the nock of the prostrate aui
mal , awaiting their arrival.
The bnll was not injured , although it
was evidently much surprised.
Brace Up , Norfolk.
Norfolk is doing a great injustice to
itself and the neighboring towns by
allowing gamblers and prostitutes the
privilege of remaining undisturbed in
that city. There is seldom a robbery
committed unless the thieves can bo
trac d to that town. Stantou and
Pilger have had several robberies of
late and two men who were living in
Norfolk nro now in the penitentiary ,
sent there by the courts and keen-eyed
officials of this county. It was a great
expense , but our people must stand it
because our sister city entertains liberal
( ? ) views regarding vice.
The safo-blowers that worked at Pilger
wore traced to Norfolk. Clean out the
gamblers and thugs , Norfolk. Common
decency demands it. Stauton Register.

Reports of a Man Seriously In
jured Sunday Night.
Officers Have Boon Investigating , but
Could Learn Nothing Either a
Hoax or the Injured Man Is Care
fully Hidden by His Friends.
It has boon persistently rumored that
lomo man had received serious injuries
between here and the Junction some-
imo during Sunday night , but the case ,
f there is one , is shrouded in mystery.
Officers were informed that a man had
been sovorly injured in the yards at the
Oroighton depot and an investigation
was umdo at 2 o'clock yesterday morn-
ng but the injured man was not found
lor were there any clew to his where
Later it was reported that a man ,
badly out and unconscious , was lying in
ho Dawson barn in the outer edge of
South Norfolk. Officers and a physi
tan at once wont to the place indicated
but the man had disappeared. One
story in that he recovered his souses and
proceeded down toward the rlvor and
another is that ho was removed by com
paulons or those responsible for his con
ilition. A doctor could not bo found
who had attended such a case , and the
conclusion is either that the officers and
others interested are victims of a
iioax or that the injured man has been
skilfully concealed.
It is also stated that a doliverynian for
one of the grocery houses has knowledge
of the case ; that ho assisted in carrying
the wounded person into a house and
stated that ho was horribly mangled but
the identity of the deliveryman is a sub
ject for conjecture ,
The case is on a par with one at Sil
ver Crook , where a man was fatally shot
hrough the body below the shoulder
but could not be induced to say any
thing about himself or who might have
boon responsible for his condition. He
was soon earlinr in the day with another
young man who was arrested at Colum
bus , but he also is as mum as an oyster
and the officers will have difficulty in
probing into the case if they continue
to maintain silence. The Norfolk offic
ers haven't even this much of a clew ,
but something may bo developed later.

( i. Little Trick That , It IM Snltl , Will
Start Him Every Time.
For the benefit of those who have
been caused n great deal of anxiety by
a balky horse , lost trains as well as
tempers and sometimes even ruined
the horse , the next time they have the
experience to run across a balky horse ,
no mutter how bad he Is , let me tell
you how to start him ninety-nine times
out of a hundred.
Of course it may fall one time in a
hundred. When a horse balks , no mat
ter how badly he sulks or how ugly he
is , do not beat him. Don't throw sand
In his cars , don't use n rope on his
fore legs or even burn straw under
him. Quietly go and pat him on the
head a moment Take a hammer or
even pick up a stone In the street ,
tell the driver to sit still , take his lines ,
hold them quietly while you lift up
either front foot , give each nail n light
tap and a good smart top on the frog ,
drop the foot quickly and then chirp
to him to go. In ninety-nine cases out
of a hundred the horse will go right on
about bis business , but the driver
must keep his lines taut and not puller
or jerk htm back.
If I have tried this once , I have tried
It GOO times , and every time I have
Suggested It people have laughed and
even bet $5 and bottles of wine that I
couiu not cio it BO rar i nave won ev
ery bet This may make you smile , but
a horse has more common sense than
most people are willing to give him
credit for. The secret of this little trick
la simply diversion. I am a firm believ
er that with kindness and proper treat
ment a horse can bo driven with a
Btring. Horse Sboers' Journal.
Another Plnnio.
A man who had lost bis much-be
loved wife consulted a stone mnson In
regard to the erection of a tombstone
with a suitable epitaph. After having
n number of lines suggested , be finally
selected the following : "The light of
my life has gone out. "
A short time afterward the widower
fell in love with a very charming girl ,
to whom he became engaged. He im
mediately felt concerned nhput the
epitaph upon the tombstone of his for
mer wife , and again consulted the
stone mason , to whom ho explained
the circumstances , and stated that the
epitaph would have to be changed. He
Intended to leave town , returning on
the day of the wedding , and Implored
th mnson to take the matter in hand
nnd alter tbo epitaph so that tbo feel
ings of his prospective wife would not
bo hurt This the mason promised to
do , and when the widower returned ho
