The bill for tbe relief of tbe settlers on
the Otoe reservation in Gage county has
at last passed congress. The senate bill
was pnt through the house after Mr.
Mercer had made a strong plea for its

the lands are situated, was content to
stand back and listen to Mercer. The

In the Third congressional district
there is strong talk among republicans
of nominating Major J. N. Kilian for
congress. The major is probably the
only man mentioned who would stand a
fair fighting chance of beating the pres
ent fusion incumbent. When congress
declared war against Spain, Captain
Kilian, then editor of the German Biene
of Columbus, dropped his goose quill
and grabbed a sword; and he didn't let
go until the gallant First Nebraska had
been many times baptised in blood, and
was ordered home by the secretary of
war. In the mean time be had been
promoted for meritons conduct on the
field, and tbe title of major he will proud
ly carry to his grave as an unsolicited
reward of merit from the great country
of which he is an adopted son. The
major has a thorough education, and
would be certain to carry a great part of
the German vote of the district without
regard to politics. Lincoln Journal.
From Austin, Texas, under date of
Sunday come harrowing accounts of dis
aster by flood a raging river one mile
wide and swollen far beyond its natural
banks. Between thirty and forty lives
have been lost, besides property beyond
estimate. Heavy rain had continued
from Wednesday night to Sunday, the
downfall averaging six inches in an hour.
The river at Austin bad risen forty feet
within ten hours. The breaking of the
dam shortly after 11 o'clock caused wild
excitement in the city. Over one hun
dred homes are known to have !een
swept away; one village of tenters was
obliterated. Losses are noted at San
Antonio, Waco and other points in Texas.
A goodly number of people have been
inclined to blame Dewey's desire for the
presidency on Mrs. Dewey, but it is said
that she insists this is not just. Mr.
Dewey has the same right to bo a can
didate as any other American citizen,
but he has been used to a very different
kind of work than practical political
maneuvering, and the outlook is against
him. Perhaps, if he could secure his
election to the democratic convention as
a delegate, and, at an opportune time in
the proceedings, make a speech that
would lift the convention off its feet, he
might duplicate the Bryan feat of four
years ago, but this is not at all probable.
A Denver telegram under date of the
5th said: Snow has been falling all over

this city. Telephone, light and trolley
wires are down in various parts of the

telephone lines have been disabled. The

Thirtt-seven incurable patients were

in the near future, the band may con

The Spanish royal standard Is most

from this occurrence: In 1378 Charles
the Bold dipped his fingers In the blood
of Geoffrey, count of Barcelona, and
drew them dowa the count's golden
shield hi token of his appreciation of
the hitter's bravery. Tbe shield, se
marked, became the arms of Barce
loaa, which became part of Aragon,
and Its ansa were taken by that king
dom. Now te tbe royal standard: In the
first quarter or upper left hand part of
the flag are the arms of I.eon aad Caa
tile, the lion aad the castlo: the second
quarter Is taken up. one-half by the
arms of Aragon. one-half by the arms
of Sicily. Tbe upper third of the quar

man had bought a watch from blm on
the Installment plan. He made one pay
ment gave the watch to a young lady
and skipped out. The client wanted to
know If he could recover the watch
from the young lady. The lawyer said
that he could not without spending
more money than the watch was
worth,, except the young woman could
be bluffed. The client said a bluff
would be paid for if successful, and
the lawyer posted the following letter:
"Dear Madam The watch recently
presented to you by Mr. Blank was ob
tained surreptitiously from the estab
lishment of my client, and unless it Is
returned by next Tuesday morning 1
will be obliged to, very reluctantly, dis
patch a judicial functionary to your

The watch was delivered the follow

fine gold chain for writing the letter.

If the sponge as brought up fresh
from the sea liottom were a familiar
object, says Dr. Ledekker, few would
be In doubt as to its being an animal.
When fresh, it is a fleshy looking sub
stance covered with a firm skin, and
if cut it presents somewhat the ap
pearance of raw meat. Its cavities are
filled with a gelatinous substance call
ed "milk." American sponges, and
those of all other parts of the world,
are .inferior to the sponges of the east
ern shores of the Mediterranean. The
finest of all sponges is the Turkey toi
let sponge, which is cup shaped. The
American sponge most nearly ap
proaching it in quality is the West In
