A terrible hail storm swept over a
mall section of country about eight
miles north of Ashland Saturday morn

slightest indication of anything having

The Inter Ocean very succinctly states
the situation thus in the Philippines:
"The Americans have been victorious in
three separate campaigns. On Feb. 4
they were practically a beseiged army.
In five days they had assumed theRg
gressiveand cleared their front of the
enemy. In two weeks they had captured
the rebel capital. In six weeks they
had scattered and demoralized Aguin
aldo's army. In nine days Lawton
cleared the provinces of Morong, Manila
and Cavite of rebels and broke the rebel
power in the south. In ninety days the
Americans accomplished more than a
much larger Spanish army accomplished
in two years, and they have met with
not a single reverse.
"Pew people," says the Philadelphia
Record, "have any idea of the immense
amount of labor involved in the intri
cate system of managing a travelling ag
gregation like Buffalo Bill's Wild West
Show. The problem of feeding the army
of showmen and employes is a huge one
of itself, and is an example in point.
From Buffalo Bill down to the lowest
menial, every attache of the show dines
in the common mess tent and all par
take of the same quality of food. When
a new temporary camp is established,
the first thing unloaded from the special
trsia which carries the show parapher-

nana is a range wagon, an immense
vehicle in which are eight or ten ranges
or cook stoves. Within forty minutes
after the unloading of the wagon fires
are built in the stoves, the big mess
tent is erected, tables are spread, and
meals for COO attendants are served.
This is an every-day record for speedy
cooking that would be hard to equal."
The First Nebraska Regiment started
from Manila on the transport Hancock
Tuesday, and by this time is well out
upon the ocean. The announcement of
their departure for home caused a thrill
of joy all over this fair state, and their
homeward journey will be attended by
the fervent prayers of the entire popu
lation. They have fought nobly and
well, and have earned a reputation for
themselves and for the state which never
can be dimmed. Among an army of
gallant men and brave fighters, the Ne
braska boys stood in the first rank, and
have received credit and praise from
their commanding officers on every oc
casion. For months their relatives and
friends have eagerly longed for the day
when they should be able to return, and
at last the day has come. The boys
our boys are coming home! They will
be greeted with every token of nffction.
with every plaudit due to valor. They
went away as children, they return as
veterans, but they are our boys yet, and
all Nebraska will rejoice to do them
honor. Speed the good ship that bears
them toward their homes! It never car
ried freight more precious, and its
mighty engines will be assisted in their
work by the prayers and good wishes of
a million and a half Nebraskans. "And
we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes
marching home." Seward Reporter.
CONCERNING THE SOLDIERS.
We quote, without giving the name of
the author: "The boys have not been
allowed to sleep with their own shoes
off since Feb. 3, and have been on the
firing line constantly, and without
blankets or shelter tents from March 7.
Our governor is just playing h 1, isn't
he? Well, let him rip. We don't need
a vote of congratulations. There isn't a
soldier or a Philipino in these islands
but what knows that the First Nebraska
have been scrapping and have done
their full share and more to put down
the insurrection. It is awful to see the
hospitals filled with sick and wounded
volunteers more Nebraskans than any
other on the island.

In general the destruction of wealth
is a social as well as an individual loss.
The wealth that is need up in riotous
living is diverted from better uses. Ex
travagance is not necessarily luxury.
The mere transfer of wealth from one
hand to another does not involve de
struction. Consumption means using
up. When a nation spends $250,000 for
a great picture, the wealth is not de
stroyed; it is simply transferred. When
the jubilee plunger ran through 2, 500,
000 in 12 calendar months, the wealth
of -the world was diminished only by
the amount of it he and those who
ponged on him put down their throat
and otherwise wantonly destroyed. In
so far as it was simply transferred ta
others to whom he paid extravagant
prices, it was not destroyed.
To give high prices for articles which
are rare is not necessarily luxury, for
the price and the rare edition or the old
master both remain. It is true that ex
travagance may mean the transfer of
wealth to those who will not use it
well, but it does not usually mean this.
It generally involves a .transfer to the
hands of those who will use it more
wisely. Journal of Ethics.

Lora Whitworth, who held varioM
poets of honor in English diplomatic
circles, was a kindly, gracious gentle
man as well ai a wit and a man of the
world. He had indeed almost measured
swords with Napoleon at the Tnileries
when that despot railed at England for
not having evacuated Egypt and Malta,
accused her of having violated treaties
and ended by flourishing a cane danger
ously near the face of the English em
baEsadoi. Lord Whitworth put his hand on the
hilt of his sword.
"What would you have done if the
emperor had struck you?" he was after
"I would have felled him to the
ground," was the quiet answer.
Perhaps the best story told of him is
one showing how bis quick wit disposed
of a rival. When he was at the Russian
court. Fox sent there as a sort of em
bassador of hie own a man named Adair,
the son of a surgeon.
One day the empress, speaking in
French, said to Lord Whitworth :
"Is he a very important man, this
"Not so very, madame," replied Lord
Whitworth, "although his father was a
grand saignenr," a remark which read
ers of French will recognize as a very
good pnu, for the word as nsed by Lord
Whitworth nieaus "blood letter, " while
by its sound it also meant a great lord.

Cats aaa Moakeya.
All animals, even the wildest, can ba
subjected in some way to the dominion
of man and be domesticated to some ex
tent. Here, for instance, are two very
curious facts about cats. Many persons,
including some of our greatest natural
ists, believe that our English domestic
sat is descended from the Egyptian do
mestic cat. Yet all records go to prove
that the cats of Egypt lived in droves,
were cared for in droves, were fed in
droves and worshiped in droves, with
the resnlt that Egyptian cats never got
domesticated or became half as intelli
gent as ours.
The like truth is suggested from In
dia, where monkeys are worshiped.
These are allowed to become nuisances.
They are fed and they have any amount
of liberty, and what is the consequence?
They never lose their innate savagery.
The method of caring for them has beeu
wrong. All the devotion and care ex
pended on them are practically wasted,
and if we treated our cats in the samo
fashion as the Indians do these monkeys
they would become just as wild and un
domesticated. Cassell's Magazine.

Prince Chilkow, the Russian minister
for railways, commenced his career by
making a tour of the world in order to
take note of all the latest inventions
aud to study the working of railroads
abroad in a practical manner. He first

in the locomotive works at Liverpool,
after which be became a railway guard
and afterward station master at an Eng

again worked as a mechanic aud after

several years on the Transcaspian rail

Victor Smith, appointed collector of
customs at Port Townshend, Wash., by
Secretary Chase, succeeded in inducing
the government to move the custom
house from that point to Port Angeles,
where he maintained himself for a time
in a semibarbario proprietorship. He
once invited the officers of the revenue
cutter Sbabrick to dine at his house,
and the officers arrayed themselves in
full dress and went ashore in state to
wait upon Collector Smith at his man

"The first souvenirs I ever knew ol
being given out in the show business,"
said the old circus inau, "we gave away
in our show at the time we had the big
18 foot giraffe. We never bad an at
traction that beat the big giraffe. The
' people were just carried away with
him. There wasn't anything about him
but what interested them, even the
slightest little things.
On clear days,
when we were where we could do it aud
the sun was right for us, we used to get
the giraffe out in front of the entrance "" .... o.eurauuu
of the main tent and have him stand I al und, to which everybody is in
there like a great sentry. People nsed to i vtd'
stop and look up at him, and then the
first thing you know somebody'd dis
cover bis auadder. Auybody'd casta

course, but tnegirarxes snaaaer reached
a u: aa yuu vuuiu aoc. auu its MJUU IU
one man begun to look at it 40 others
did, and then you'd see 'em. I've seen
1,000 people at a timeline up long that
shadder and just stand along the edge
of it down past the main tent and the j
sideshow tents, just standing then
lookin at it The giraffe was great, but
his shadder fairly staggered 'em. And
there they V stand till the sun dropped
down nnder the edge of the earth; and
the first thing they knew there wasn't
any shadder. Then they'd stare at each
other for a minute, and then all bunch
up together again and look at the giraffe
till we took him in.
"We used to bavo a line on the pro
gramme saying that at 8 o'clock and at
9 o'clock the great giraffe would hand
around ice water. That's whero the sou
venirs come in. We used to give away
the glasses tho water was in. The glasses
were marked, 'Souvenir of the Great
Giraffe,' and whoever got 'em could
keep 'em. The seats in our circus were
divided into four sections. We nsed to
give away four dozen tumblers at every
performance, one in each section. When
the time come, we'd march the giraffe
around the edge of the ring, and in
front of each section his keeper would
band him a wire holder holding a dozen
glasses, which he would take by the
handle in his mouth. Tall as he was, he
could reach easy to the highest back
seats. It's astonishing how people used
to grab for those glasses. It seems as
though the whole .section would stand
up on the seats and all grab for the
holder when it come near 'em. They'd
spill the water and get wet and have
the greatest time yon ever heard of, but
nobody got hurt, and so we just let hex
buzz along. But finally something did
"At one evening entertainment when
he was serving out the souvenirs, when
we come to one of the sections, there was
a man sitting on the fourth tier from
the top who picked up his boy, a bright
looking youngster about 10 years old,
who was sitting alongside of him, and
sat him up on his shoulder. The giraffe
lifted the holder up and swept it along
the seats with the people grabbing, and
when it come near this man with the
boy on bis shoulder the man just lifted
him up so that the boy could stand on
his shoulders. He was going to get one
anyway, and when the bolder came
along tho boy made a grab for it. There
was ouly one glass left in it then, but
the boy got it He upset it lifting it out
of the holder und scattered the water
all over everybody, but that didn't
count. He got the glass and was com
ing down with it when his father, in
stead of feeling him jouueo down on hia
shoulder, felt his weight growing light
er, and the next minute he and every
body else taw tho boy suspended in the
air. When the giraffe saw the last glass
go, he lifted the holder, the way he al
ways did, to clear the people before
swinging it around and down to the
keeper. This time when he lifted it the
buttons on the outside of the cuff of the
boy's jacket got caught in the wires.
They were sewed on the way mothers
sew on buttons, and they held the
youngster's weight easily, vnd when
the giraffe lifted the holder up he lifted
the boy with it.
"Tbeu there was a scene. We knew
the giraffe wouldn't hurt a fly, but it
looked to the people as though he had
the boy in his teeth and was going to
slug him through the other end of no
where. The whole audience rose up and
stood leaning forrard, watchin and
never sayin boo, but tho giraffe swung
his neck around as gentle and easy as
the arm of a crane and lowored the
holder and the boy hanging to it safe
into the arms of the keeper in the ring.
The boy hadn't even dropped the tum
bler. "Then the people did holler, and the
giraffe walked off as stately as you
please, the boy climbed back up to hia
pop, and the show went on. Nobody
hurt, but when we run out of the tum
blers we had on band we adopted an
other style of souvouir. "Now York

Editor Journal: If Mr. W. W. Bur
gess can live on the ottar of roses, the
toothsome orange and the balmy atmos
phere of California, he must be some
kin to Dr. Tanner. I should want a
littlo beef, pork, mutton and occasion
ally a dollar mixed in with my bill of
faro. I do not see what W. W. B. is
doing out in Oregon! Why is it that he
can go so far from the ever-blooming
rose? My advice to all Nebraskans is to
stay in this land of bIizzards,drouthand
grasshoppers, and even put np with the
populists, they are far better off than
they would be in the sun-dried land of
Southern California, where the people of
that state depend upon the sick Yankee
from the east, which is a never failing
crop. The cemetery in Los Angeles is
the fattest one I ever saw. There are
116,000 people in this last named place;
100,000 of them are undertakers, that is,
they are undertaking to make a living
there. Oranges are just as cheap in
Columbus, as they are in Los Angeles.
Roses look just as nice in Nebraska, and
a laboring man can make ten dollars in
Nebraska where he could make one in
Southern California. I have lived in
Nebraska for forty years and have never
blown away nor dried up, and never
missed a meal. Nebraska is the hub of
the universe and the center of America,
and Omaha is the best market in Ameri
ca and everybody knows it. Mr. W. W.
B., if you wish a good square meal go to
Omaha or come to Columbus, and you
will find that the grasshoppers did not
get it all. Respectfully yours,
Geo. & Baknum.
