loss of his wife by death a ehort time
afterwards; the loss of his oldest son by

He had paid 3300 f the $600 agreed
on for the rent of Mr. Haney's farm, and
it is supposed that he became despon
dent over the poor prospect ahead of
him in the way of crops.
Coroner Heintz went to the premises
at 6 o'clock Monday evening, returning
at 9, but did not think it necessary to
summon a jury, as there was no doubt
at all concerning the cause of death.
A Close Call for the Uraml Facile.
Friday morning last about 10 o'clock
the Grand Pacific hotel, corner of Olive
and Tenth streets, was noticed to be on
fire on the northwest corner, the flames
bursting from the cornice of the third
The under stories of this part of the
building were of cottonwood, veneered
with brick, which was given as the rea
son by some, why the building did not
burn more readily.
Within five minutes after the alarm
was sounded the fire department were
on hand in force, and in a very few
minutes thereafter had three streams of
water pounding the very life out of th
lire in short order.
The stand-pipe was full at the start of
the fire and was lowered only fifteen
feet, and it was not necessary to use the
engine, the pressure of the stand-pipe
being sufficient to throw the streams in
fine shape. So soon as the water began
to play upon the flames, there was no
question with the spectators as to the
control of the fire and that in only a
few minntes' time. Columbns may well
congratulate herself on having an active,
efficient, wide-awke fire department.
The building is owned jointly by I.
Gluck of this city, and an eastern man
represented by the State bank. The
loss to the building is estimated at from
32,000 to 33,500, and on the furniture,
3150 to 8200, the last wholly by water.
The furniture was owned by the land
lord. Samuel Mahood, and was insured

ble. STILL ANOTHER.
A second alarm was sounded at 2
o'clock last Friday which brought out
the fire companies in short order, im
they were together, jn squads talking
about the hotil fife from which they had
but just returned. The second blaze
was found to be in some old rubbish on
a lot back of the one on which stands
the stand-pipe. It was soon extinguish
ed by Engineer John Burrell, at the
pump house, with the help of an old
lady with a bucket, and the firemen did
ot have to use their hose. There was
considerable uneasiness at first, as it
was reported that the planing-mill had
caught fire, and everybody breathed
easier when they learned that this was
not the case.
It will pay you to send your name
to the Agricultural Experiment Station
of Nebraska, under direction of the
State University, Lincoln, and ask them
to send you copies of the bulletins that
they issue from time to time. Those of
our farmer readers who have as yet
given no attention to the raising of
alfalfa would do well to look it up, in
one of the late bulletins, which gives a
report of an interesting series of experi
ments which seem to show the great
superiority of alfalfa over all other
forage plants. It gives a yield of about
6ix and a half tons per acre of good
forage, and was cut four times during
the summer. The plants were twenty
six inches high at the first cutting, June
29; twenty-six inches at the second,
August 2, and twenty-four inches when
the last crop was cut on the first of
September. There remained an after
growth six inches high, which would
have made an excellent fall pasturage.
The first cut was 816 lbs., the second
805, the third 743, while the estimated
fourth was 180, a total of 2.544 on a plat
of one-fifth of an acre. Alfalfa not only
withstands the most severe drouth, but
lives on for an indefinite time without
replanting, producing from three to four
abundant crops every season. It en
riches instead of exhausts tho soil.

The state shooting tournament
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of
last week was attended by about sixty
sportsmen from different parts of the

last Wednesday night, for it was one of
the most grand as well .is the most in
structive entertainments that we have
ever had in Columbus. While the stage
at our opera house is rather small for so
much settings, still they did remarkably
well. John Griffith, as Mephisto, held
the audience as though each and every
one of them were afraid he might call
on them next, and they could not resist
him. His ease and grace fascinated all.
