ALMOST BOAST COWBOY.
A WyeeUac Brassing Casta Deprived ef a
Boast cowboy came very near being oa
the bill of fare at a round-up camp a
few days ago on the Powder river. A
party who came from there August 90
gives an account of the affair as follows:
"A cow outfit were branding calves and
oneoftheboysof the C Y (Carey) com
pany put his iron on five or six animals
belonging to Jack Flagg, a Powder river
ranch man. As luck would have it,
Flagg rode up just as the act was being
performed, saw that it was his calf and
probably considering that the six shoot
er route was too easy for the fellow, fell
upon the interloper and after giving him
a terrible thumping, deliberately carried
him to the blazing fire where the brand
ing irons were heating and would have
cast him into it had not the bystanders
divined bis purpose and rescued the
offending cowboy in the nick of time.
Flaag, who is himself now under indict
ment charged with a too frequent exer
cise of the branding iron, is a determin
ed character, and the opinion is that his
intended victim would have been seri
ously burned but for the timely inter
ference." AN IMPORTANT ORDER.

The victims of the recent disastrous
flood in Tucker, Tygart, State, Little
Sandy and other creek valleys are, many
of them, in sad need of help. They are
houseless and homeless, and but for the
chanty of the neighbors hill farmers
the suffering would be terrible. There
are miles of desolate territory, with
scarcely a house left standing and not a
vestige of crops. Homeless women and
children are scattered among the hill
farmers, while the men are searching
for work over the desolate country.

The explorers were last heard of from

where they had encountered many gales.
On the west coast, in Magdalen bay, lat

in Spitsbergen. He reported that the
winter had been mild, but sport was not
very good. Encouraged by Dr. Nansen's
success, the Danes will send an expedi

two and a half years if needed, will go
out in a whaler and explore the boast be

Naturally attractive to home seekers
Omaha from now on must become
doubly so, not only on account of fine
public schools, churches and places of
amusement but on account of parks and
boulevards. In selecting a home the
seeker is very much influenced by at
tractive parks and boulevards and all
cities which have adopted entensivepark
systems have at once sprung into popu
larity among the thousands of families
looking for a city to settle in. As a
general thing these families possess con
siderable money. One or two of the
younger members probably seek active
business, but the place is selected in
part because it is .attractive and pleasant
in the eyes of other members of the
Omaha is now becoming attractive.
The agents looking up the fraudulent
land and water right entries are making
important discoveries. The upper Black
foot river has fine natural meadows
covered by desert entries. On this tract
11,000 acres are claimed by prominent
Utah Mormons, who have ten mowing
machines cutting thousands of tons of
hay, dry as the season is. Notwith
standing the land is river irrigated the
locality is so far away from travel and
settlement that it makes it a good mid
way place for stock to be run out to
evade the vigilant church receiver.
Large herds of such stock are reported
in that vicinity. The prosecutions
promised to place these lands back in
the public domain, while examples will
be made of some of the offenders charg
ed with perjury.
A horrible crime was perpetrated at
Ashland, Wise, Tuesday night An un
known man laid the body of a companion
who was inooxicated across the tracks of
the Omaha railroad. The night express
from St Paul came along at the rate of
forty miles an hour. Before the engi
neer, who saw the whole proceedings,
could stop the train, it ran over the
body, cutting it in three pieces and
mangling it so that it had to be put in
a parcel to be removed. As soon as the
train passed over the body the murderer
took to his heels and disappeared ia the
woods. The body is so badly mangled
that it cannot be identified. A posse
was organised to hunt the murderer.

The polios have discovered some im
portant evidence in the Cronin case. It
is said to be to the effect that on the
night of the murder of Dr. Cronin a pair
of horses belonging to O'Sallivaa, the
ioe man, now in jail as one of Cronin's
murderer's, were attached to one of his
ice wagons, aad were driven rapidly to
the vicinity in which the murder was
committed by the excited men; that the
horses were driven up in front of a sa
loon in Lakeview at about 9 o'clock;
that they were oovered with foam, and
that the men in the wagon went in and
had drink. It has been supposed ever
since the murder that these horses re
mained in the barn all that night The
police admit the substantial correctness
of these statements, but decline to speak
further about the matter, except to say
that neither of the men in the wagon is
Col. Corr of Washington has bought
the lumber of the scaffold on which
John Brown was hanged at Charlestown,
W. Va December 2, 1859, and intends
to exhibit the scaffold for the purpose
of raising money to erect a monument
to John Brown, on the Shenandoah river
between Charlestown and Harper's Fer
ry. How the world changes! The old
Virginia would have gone wild at the
mere mention of such a project, although
Virginians of the old school had great
admiration for the pluck, courage and
grit of old John Brown, and never failed
to express it We remember one, living
near the cave where Brown and his men
used to come together, and who said
that he had seen Brown often and wit
nessed the hanging, declared: "he was
the gamest man I ever saw."
It is a fact worth thinking about in all
its bearings that 22,000,000 acres of the
soil of these United States are owned by
citizens of European countries. The
vast acreage owned by the aliens is equal
to nine states the size of Massachusetts.
The alien English landlords in Ireland,
who are charged responsible for nine
tenths of the miseries and oppressions
endured by the Irish people, do not own
half as many acres there as alien Europ
eans own in this country. It is time
congress did something decisive in the
way of legislating the large alien land
syndicates off American soil. Boston

Yankton is soon to be added to the
list of busy, thriving enterprising cities
with which Columbus is connected by
rail. A vote there Monday, 436 for and
46 against, secures the building of the
road to Norfolk, with which place Co
lumbus is already in communication. A
large manufacturing center here secured
by cheap water power, and a complete
system of railroads, will make Columbus
a first-class point for wholesale houses.
Tramps are sold under the provisions
of law down in Missouri. Four of these
wayfaring travelers were put up at auc
tion Monday at Moberly, two of them
going at $2 a head, another at seventy-
five cents; a fourth finding no purchas
er, was returned to jail. The con
sideration for the money paid is four
months work by the tramps.
In Mexico a very large business is
being done in the way of importing
American cattle and hogs, and the trade
is rapidly increasing. Befrigerator
works are now being erected in the City

in refrigerator cars. And thus the
United States looks abroad.

The banking board has held a session;
it is revealed that some savings banks
have been violating the law in the mat
ter of securities on loans. The reserve
fund came up. It seems that the law
requires that banks in cities or towns
under a population of 25,000 shall keep
a reserve fund of fifteen percent of the
capital deposited, and twenty per cent
in cities of 25,000 or over. It is said that
some bankers seek to interpret the law
as meaning that a reserve fund of fifteen
per cent shall be kept on hand, or in
cities of 25,000 or over, but the emphatic
edict went forth that the law means just
what it says.
A frightful accident occurred at

gun ready to fire at the next disturbance.
No more trouble followed and Mr.
Stacker later went to his work, forget
ting all about his having a loaded gun
in the house. About 9 o'clock his four
teen years old son Oscar began handling
the gun, thinking that as usual it was
not loaded but the fatal charge went off,

Secretary Noble has issued a circular
to pension agents reducing their appor
tionment for clerk hire to a figure that
will not exceed the apportionment made
by congress for that purpose. The ap
portionment is insufficient but the sec
retary does not think it legal to increase
the number of clerks, thus deliberately
making a deficiency. This may result
in some delay at some of the agencies in
paying the pensions for the quarter end
ing September 30.
Commmiseioner of Pensions Tanner
wants it distinctly understood that there
is no quarrel between secretary nooie
and himself, nor has there been at any
time the slightest break in the pleasant
personal relations between them. He
says, "Mr. Noble is one of the most lov
able men, a man of broad views, and
while there may be some official differ

not of a personal character. Any state
