night , "this course will bo In payable

line as any In the country. Golf on
this course through the fair greens
must be played in the air. The rea
son Americans do not be'at Scotch
men Is that Americans play over fair
greens that are smooth and get rolls
for their distances. The Scotchman
plays the only perfect golf , because
all his plays are In the air over woods
and ravines and he takes his chances

prove to be a popular course because
of the variety of the ground and the
natural hazards. "

"I Didn't Kill Wife. "
Wayne , Nob. , July 5. What la hid
den In those great round , deft blue
eyes of Henry Hografe , accused wife
murderer , that stare by the hour
through the bars of the Wayne county
Jail ? That Is the problem that the
county officers are trying to solve.
Sheriff G. L. Mears and County Attor
ney Davis are weaving a chain of ev
idence about the stoical , apparently
dull willed prisoner which will be
used In an nllompt to send him to a
murderer's grave. But all the while
the man behind the bars sits through
a long vigil day by day , with no one
but himself for company , for prison

and far between.
Until last week this big German
was a hard working blacksmith In
Altona. On May 13 his wife died , after
tor a long Illness , during which a phy
slcian had never been called. The
only other person In Hie house was
Miss Amelia Mosemann of Hooper
who was doing the housework. After
the funeral , Hografe went about his
toll. But last week the countryside
was starlled by his arresl on , the
charge of murder. It is alleged that
this big-eyed German , who apaprenlly
has no olher knowledge bul that of
the hammer and tongs , placed enough
strychnine in a medicine given to his
wife to kill twenty persons. The ar
rest was made after the woman's vis
cera had been examined by chemists
at Mornlngslde college , Sioux City.
Says He Threatened Wife.
Miss Mosemann was responsible for
the charge. She told County Atlorney
Davis lhat Hografe had threalened lo
poison Mrs. Hografe.
What do Hografe's eyes hide ?
Could they Impart some terrible se
cret ? the observer Instinctively In
quires when he sees the man. As In
stinctively the answer would be no.
Staring straight Into yours , the wide
open blue wells surmounting a stubby
prison-kept beard , gave no suggestion
of the murderer. All Inquiries are an
swered in a stoical sort of way , yet
with a frankness about the details
leading to his arrest that Is disarming.
But Sheriff Mears , County Allorney
Davis and Miss Mosemann assert that
he Is a murderer. That outer appear
ance of the blond giant , that look of
nonunderstandlng , of failure to grasp
the significance of his plight , Is all a
| superficial veneer , due more to the
credit of the consummate actor than

pile dto a question. "My wife , she

lead Plains. Long Island , as n pas-
eugor with her husband In his Far-

Mrs. Hnrman declared herself to be
delighted with her novel experience.
She said she was henceforth a do-
otee of the aeroplane , and would Im-
nedlately have one built for herself ,
and , after learning to manipulate It ,
nnke lllghts alone.
'This has been the most glorious ex-
> erlence I ever had In my llfo , " said
Mrs. Harmon , her eyes snapping with
enthusiasm , her cheeks Hushed and
icr whole attitude one of excited
ilcasuro . "I am going to have an
aeroplane of my own just ns soon as
can get one built.

know what It Is to clear n wicked
'once ' on a thorougnured hunter , and
have driven four-lu-hands. But none
of these things can compare In the
slightest wit the exhilaration and the
pleasurable excitement of flying
.hrough the air In a biplane.
"Once recently I made an ascent In
a balloon. But that was nothing be
side this ride In the nlr. In a balloon
one merely has to overcome the Ini
tial timidity. The going up Into the
Ur itself is provocative of no especial
pleasure. But the aeroplane Is alto
; ether different.
"I will confess that I was a bit Urn
d as I was helped In by Mr. Harmon
nto the seat behind him. But I was
determined to share this oxhllaratlvo
pleasure with my husband , after the
most enthusiastic descriptions he had
given mo of what It was like to fly
: hrough the air.
"When we slid off the ground , I had
to take a long breath , but as we soar
ed upward , I lost my timidity. There
was , Indeed , no time to think of being
timid , the sensation was so pleasur
able. It was like floating through
space. I felt like what I Imagined
birds felt when I saw them flying In
the air. "
Mr. Harmon said he knew there was
practically no danger for his wife In
the flight with him and he declared
that If she wanted to learn how to
manipulate an aeroplane and have
one of her own , he would have no ob
[ ectlons. Only he wanted her to be
quite sure that she was able to meet
all possible emergencies while In the

THIS IS HOW A FLY FLIES.
Depressing His Wings He Jumps Be
Paris , July 5. The latest discovery
is a method of taking photographs at
the almost incredible speed of 2,000
pictures a second. The inventor Is
Louis Bull , a young American scien
tist who Is settled in Paris. By this
discovery it Is possible to look at
many natural processes which before
this could only be guessed at.
For Instance , It is possible now to
watch plants growing , and see every
movement of the most rapid Insects.
This science Is called ultra-rapid cine
matography. It Is distinct from ultramicroscopic -
microscopic cinematography , another
recent Invention , by which It Is pos
sible to see the movements of mi
crobes and other things Invisible to
the naked eye.
The new ultra-rapid cinematograph
shows how a fly or bee or other flying
Insect uses its wings. What Is to the
ordinary person a mere confused buzzIng -
Ing of wings becomes a clear and or
derly process with this machine. One
series of these pictures shows nlnteen
pictures of an ordinary house fly fly-
Ing. The movements represented here
occurred In the space of l-105th of a
second of time , and yet each one is
seen more plainly than If an elephant
were walking slowly before the ob
Anyone can see from these pictures
that the fly does not start flying by
buzzing his wings , as most people sup
pose. He depresses his wings very
much as n human aviator depresses
the planes of his flying machine be
fore starting. Then the fly gives him
self a "take off" with his legs and
when he Is fairly In the air his wings
Perhaps the most curious series of
ultra-rapid cinematography pictures Is
that which shows the course of a rlflo
bullet through a soap bubble. The
movements here depicted In seventeen
pictures occupied exactly 1425th of a
second. You see the bullet approachIng -
Ing the bubble. It pushes the tenuous
skin of the bubble Inward for some
distance before It breaks It.
At last the bullet pushes through
the skin , but the skin reforms behind
the bullet and falls back Into Us orig
inal position before the bullet reaches
the farther side of the bubble. When
the bullet passes out of that sldo It
leaves n hole nnd that destroys the
bubble. You see It fade away to a
drop of soapy water.
It is Interesting to know the details
of the methods by which these photo
graphs are taken. To photograh an
Insect In flight It Is necosary to ar
range things so that he will fly volun
tarily across the photographic field.
With this object the device Is placed
near a window , so that the Insects ,
which are nearly always attracted to
ward the light , fly In that direction.
It Is Indispensable to release the
shutter at the precise moment when i
the crcaturo traverses the photogra
phic Hold. The system which succeeds
well with ordinary flies , consists In
keeping the Insect captive holding one
foot In nn electro magnetic clamp
connected with the circuit that can-
trols the shutter. As soon as the In
sect starts to lly It puts the apparatus
A Collector's Bargain
Lord Spencer of Althorp , uirt of the
greatest of book collector ! ) , was at
home only In his own Held. One day
In browsing about Bond street , Lon
don , be went Into the shop of a dealer
In brlc-a-brac. The dealer , who knew
him by sight , said persuasively :
"Hero Is a One bit of pottery which
your lordship renlly ought to have ,
ijnd you shall have It very cheap only
2 guineas. "
So Lord Spencer bought It nnd took
It home nnd set It In n high place.
One day n connoisseur of china paid
him a visit , and Lord Spencer showed
"What did you give for It ? " asked
"Two guineas , " answered Spencer
"Il'm ! " said the connoisseur. "At
that price the marmalade should have
been Included. "
"What do you mean ? "
"Why. that precious piece of yours
Is nothing more or less than a shil
ling niiirmnlndc pot with a green this
tle painted on It. "
Silencing the Questioners.
A French gentleman who had been
with M. do Talleyrand for twenty
years accompanied him to the congress
nt Vienna after Napoleon's exile to
Elba. People naturally concluded that
this long intimacy hnd made him fa
miliar with n number of particulars of
the minister's life and bearing also
upon the events with which he had
been mixed up. Worried with ques
tions , the friend Invariably replied that
he knew nothing , but the questioners
would not bo nntlsfled and returned to
"Very well. " finally said Talleyrand's
confidant ; "I'll tell you a peculiar and
altogether unknown fact in connection
with M. dc Talleyrand. Since Louis
XV. he's the only man who can open : >
soft boiled ens with one uackwnnl
stroke of his knife without spilling a
drop of the contents of the shell. That
is the only peculiarity I know in con
nection with him. "
Discretion had scored a decisive vic

Great Rosebud Crop Assured.
Gregory , S. D. , July 4. Special to
The News : A heavy steady rain fell
in Gregory nnd over the Rosebud
country. Coming just as It does
about a week or ten days before most
of the small grain will be harvested
this rain will help materially In fill
ing out the grain to bursting size and
will give the Rosebud farmer another
very heavy crop. The crop outlook
ten days ago was not very promising.
Moisture there had been In abundance
until a short time before , but a steady
south wind continuing day after day
during more than a week of dry hot
weather had caused the wiseacres to
set up their claims that the proverb
ial luck of the Rosebud farmer was
going to receive a serious set-back
this year. Then came the big soakIng -
Ing rain of a week ago and saved the
small grain crop with such an amount
of moisture as to absolutely assure a
heavy crop. The rain now falling a
week before harvest will simply add
its weight to the grain kernels and
restore the Rosebud country to Its
place of prominence among northwest

The supreme court holds that com
mon law marriage was proven and
that it sustains an action for divorce
to the same extent as though the mar-

Firecracker Started Runaway.
Gordon , Neb. , July 5. Special to
The News : To have started a run
away and then stopped the team be-
'ore ' any damage was done was the
iccullar experience of a Gordon boy
a few days ago. A ranch team hitch
ed to a loaded freight wagon was
standing by the door to the freight
room of the depot when a young man
set off a largo firecracker on the oppo
site side of the street. The team
started but owing to the heavy load
could not run fast at the start. The
driver was some distance In the roar
of the wagon but heard the team start
and ran toward them. Before he
reached them the boy had hurried
across the street and headed the
earn off. Luckily no damage was
done either to team or wagon.

A Nellgh Poker Game.
Nellgh , Neb. , July 5. Special to
The News : There Is probably not a
city In northeast Nebraska that can
Doast of more activity along all lines
than can Neligh especially when It
comes to doing curious things.
As rumor has It , one of her latest
stunts was pulled off in the back
room of one of the business houses
of the city a short time ago. It seems
that a prominent business man con
ceived the idea of giving a few busi
ness acquaintances an opportunity to
relax , for a time , from the business
cares of life and so invited them to a
little social game of "draw" In the
back room of his place of business
at so much per draw.
Everything seemed to have gone
along nicely and the meeting likely to
prove a success , until it was noticed
that the ace of clubs was somewhat
torn and therefore easily distinguish
ed , and it was thought best to have a
new deck , when the aforesaid host
reached on a shelf , produced the decrf ,
and proceeded to deal the proper num
ber of cards to the guests.
Up until this stage of the game
there was nothing but what any ordi
nary citizen could do In any ordinary
town , but at this point Is where Ne
llgh breaks away from the ordinary ,
and puts on one of those peculiar co
incident stunts that makes her stand
out In a class by her lonesome.
Rumor goes on further to say that
In the deal that followed , one party
got three deuces , another four tens ,
another four kings , another four aces ,
another a small straight and the afore
mentioned host a straight flush. When
the smoke cleared away the latter
was seen to pocket the swag with one
of those satisfied smiles that arc so
Irritating under ordinary circumstan
ces , but of course , this being an ex
ceptional case , it was looked upon with
considerable pride by the star per
formers and another "highwater
mark" credited up for Neligh.
Several of the prominent citizens
are going down the street .with pencil
and tablet In their hands , and It Is
presumed that they are figuring Just
how many thousand years It would bo
until just that peculiar thing could
happen again. It Is reported that the
party who held the four tens has finally -
ly demonstrated that It will require
Just 1,327,417 years and twenty-six
days for the same thing to occur
again , provided the game run con
tinuously for that length of time.
Just when the next relaxation meetIng -
Ing will bo called , or where It will beheld
held , your Informant has not learned ,
but It Is safe to say that should any
other town In northeast Nebraska un
dertake to pull off a stunt in competi
tion with the above the talent of No-
llgh will bo aroused , and you can look
for wonderful things.

New Yo'rk July 5. "I would like

MR. BRYAN DISCUSSES T. R.
The Ex-President's Influence Will De
pend on Two Things , He Says.
Montreal , July 5. William Jennings
Bryan , giving his estimate here of the
Influence which ex-President Theodore
Roosevelt will exert on politics , said :
"Mr. Roosevelt'n wide influence In
politics will depend upon two things
first , upon his own Inclination , and ,
second , upon his attitude on public
"He can If he likes , refuse to dis
cuss partisan questions and devote
himself \ those subjects which , whllo
national In scope and political In char
acter , are not distinctively party ques
tions as , for Instance , the peace
movement or he can enter actively
Into the discussion of measures be
fore congress "nnd state legislatures ,
platforms and candidates.
"With the prestige of the presidency
back of him , , his words are likely to
have Influence In his party If Uo as
sumes a partisan attitude , and with
the country at large If he assumes
an independent attitude.
"In the second place , his Influence
will depend upon the position he will
take. A man must In the long run
stand or fall with the principles or
policies for which he stands. The
personal element Is very likely to bo
