Sunday, June 11, a tornado struck
near Salix, Iowa, killing three people
outright, fatally injuring a fourth. The
home of Mrs. Hassell, a widow, was
whirled away, injuring none of the
eight occupants. The Malloy family,
who took refuge in the cellar, remained
only about five minutes and the father
suggested that the cloud was only rain.
They came up and in an instant the
house was demolished, the dead and in
jured being rcattered among the ruins
The homes of Phil, and Joe Berger and
Patrick O'Xeil were reduced to kindling
wood. Pat Mallow says that houses,
barns, lire stock and human beings were
sucked up by the terrible funnel-shaped
cloud, the air appearing to be filled
with wrecked buildings and debris for
half a mile high. This was the sixth
tornado in that section this season. -At

transactions get into tho newspapers and
disturb the public repose by premature
speculations. I know not whose papci

up his hat and quitted tho room with a
dignity so severe that every person
seemed alarmed. For my part, I waf

the Indian Queen, I found my copy in a
coat pocket which I had pulled off that

that no person ever owned the paper.

FIRST NEBRASKA SAILS SOON.
Washington, June 9. Special Tele
gram. Although two other volunteer
regiments havo the priority of leaving
the Philippines the First Nebraska will
in all probability get away in the lead,
according to a cablegram from General
Otis. In this message General Otis
stated the Oregon regiment would leave
Manila about June 12 and would go di
rect to Portland, its point of muster
out, on the transports Ohio and New
port. The Nebraska troops, according
to General Otis, will sail in a day or two
on the transport Hancock, which is con
sidered a most comfortable ship.
This disposition of tho returning vol
unteers nas been made at the instance
of the Oregonians, who elect to leave
later and divide the regiment in order to
secure pleasant accommodations. The
Nebraskaus will be mustered out in
San Francisco and will be given travel
pay to Omaha.
General Otis has been instructed by
the president to have all arrangements
made to insure the returning troops a
comfortable voyage and have them so
placed that sickness will be next to an
impossibility by reason of close contact
It is said by the officials of the War de

given the officials at Manila not to load
the transports too heavily, in order that

It is commonly said that a sprained
joint is worse than a broken bone, and
this is often true, for in a severe sprain
the injury is really greater than in a
simple fracture. The ankle is perhaps
the most frequently sprained of all the
joints, though the knee, elbow and
wrist are also very liable to be injured,
in falls especially.
A sprain of a joint varies greatly in
severity. It may consist of a simple
wrench, without the tearing of any of
the ligaments, or it may bo a moro ex
tensive injury, stopping just short of a
In a moderately severe case one or
more of the ligaments of the joint will
be torn slightly, or possibly completely
across. The membrane beneath the lig
aments, which retains the lubricating
fluid of the joint will be ruptured, per

this fluid into the parts about and giv
ing rise sometimes to a considerable
swelling. This swelling may be increas

joint, especially if inflammation sets in,
and finally there is usually a slight or
even sometimes a quite pronounced es

tendons and muscles it is easy to un
derstand that much pain will result and
that tho euro will be tedious.
In the treatment of a sprain the first
thing to be aimed at is to relieve pain
and prevent inflammation, then to favor
healing of the torn structures, and after
that to restore the use of the limb.
The first of these objects is accom
plished by absolute rest of the injured

may prescribe. Swelling is prevented in

A baggage man on the Santa Fe who
runs into Kansas City from out in the
western part of Kansas has lost lots of
sleep. It is doubtful if he can ever catch
up with it. .He leaves Hutchinson at
night and reaches Kansas Oity in the
morning. Nearly every night ho brings
in bis car two or three coops of live do
mestic ducks. During the night, when
he has no baggage to deliver at small
stations, it has been his habit and privi
lege to lie down on an improvised couch
and doze. With tho advent of the ducks
the dozing stopped. The almost constant
quacking of the ducks, who could not
understand their 'strange environment,
would not permit of sleep.
For many nights as he lay awake he
planned relief. He thought of strangling
tbe ducks or chloroforming them. But
neither expedient seemed good. One
night a bright idea came to him. After
he had put it into execution the ducks
The next night he had two coops of
unusually vociferous ducks. As soon as
it came time for sleep he wrenohed a
slat from one of the coops, reached in
and pulled out a duck. From his pocket
he took a small rubber band, which he
slipped over the duck's bill just back of
the nostrils. The duck tried to quack,
but the rubber band, while it stretched
s little, would not permit the duck to
open its bill far enough to use its
tonguo. Only a murmur came from it
One by one the ducks ware muzzled,

"By Hook or Crook."
In old times tbe poor of a manor were
permitted to obtain as fuel the dead
wood from tbe surrounding woodland.
The dead twigs and branches which
were beyond their reach they were al
lowed to lop off with a hook or a crook.
There is a document among the rec
ords of the town of Bodmin which gives
the right to the burgesses of the town,
nnder the concession of the prior of
soumin, "to near ana carry away on
their backs and in no other way the lop,
crop, hoop, crook and bag wood in the
prior's wood of Dunmecr."
Another part of this paper mentions
this as "a right with hook and crook to
lop, crop and carry away fuel, etc., in
the same wood."
The date of this record is 1525. New
