It ie said that W. A. Clark of Montana,
during his recent trip in Europe, invest
ed $10,000,000 in Russian copper mines.
Thomas Jexsen', who represented But
ler county in the Nebraska house of rep
resentatives in 1880, died at El Bono,
O. T., July 13. He had lived in Okla
homa for twelve years.
The indications are that there will be
about 100,000 registered for the Okla
homa lands, and there are about 13,400
quarters to be drawn, a good many of
the quarters worth but little.
Mas. Kbdoeh, wife of former Presi
dent Krugerof the South African re
public, died Sunday of pneumonia, after
an illness of three days at Pretoria,
South Africa. She was 67 years old.
May. Bkadxek D. Slaughter, army
paymaster at Omaha, has been ordered
to the Philippines for service. It is ex
pected that Maj. Charles E. Stanton,
now in Manila, will be his successor.
Near Callaway, Nebraska, the farmers
mix Paris green in water, soak bran in
the mixture, and distribute here and
there in fields pestered by grasshoppers.
It is said to be doing "good work in the
way of killing the hoppers."
Amono the latest announcements is a
cure for leprosy, the product of a Ven
ezuelan shrub. Experiments are being
made with it in Hawaii under the care of
Dr. Carmichael of the United States
Marine hospital, having been so directed
by the department at Washington.
There seems a unity of sentiment in
the state, so far rb expression has been
made public by the press, in regard to
the parole of former state treasurer
Bartley. As wejr rite, Governor Savage
has not published his reasons, but they
may be assumed to be justifiable and
commendable until found otherwise. It
is not to be presumed that the governor
would have a rule of action for Mr. Bart
ley that would not answer equally well
for another. The general interests of
the state, we have no doubt, have actu
ated the governor to do what he has
done, not only in granting the parole,
but also in not, as yet, disclosing his

just been put in. There are five masons
and four carpenters now at work. The
large building has been provided for
financially, and the Sisters in charge
wish to thank the citizens of the city
especially for their liberal help in the
matter. The new wing of the hospital
which will stand immediately in front of
the present building, will be four stories
high besides the basement; will contain
forty private rooms, a large new operat
ing room, chapel, guests' dining room,
two parlors, physicians' office, two eleva
tors, etc. The building will be com
pleted late in the fall. After the 23d of
August the Sisters will take fifteen girls
as students in nursing; eight new expe
rienced nurses will be sent here, and
these, together with the twelve Sisters
already here will give the hospital a
strong helping force.
It is surprising, in this hot season,
the little mercy shown to the horses.
The horse suffers as much as man from
heat, yet we see the whip applied as
freely as in cold weather, and the beast
is expected to trot briskly through the
hot sun all day and evening, in order to
cool off the riders. The following, from
the Nebraska Farmer, is a bit too strong
in implications for the average driver,
but we have known cases, a few only,
where the unvarnished truth was too
infernal for any use except as a fearful
example of what a brutal man can do
unto a dumb, helpless beast The first
question and the last, however, duly con
sidered, may help to lighten some poor
beast's burden: "How would you like
to be your own horse? Would you work
yourself six or seven hours without
water when the temperature is in the
nineties? Would you let the head of a
rivet stand twisted in the harness till it
twisted the skin off? Would you put a
bridle on yourself that had a loose blind
which flopped you in the eye every time
you took a step? Would you tie your
self up with a lazy or slow horse which
made you pull more than half the load?
would you give yourself water out or a
slimy box or a mudhole in the creek,
where the pigs and poultry bathe?
Would yon feed yourself dry corn seven
days in the week and hay that smelled
of rata, in a manger on which the hens
roost? Would you stand yourself, at
feeding time, ankle deep in your own
excrement, to fight a million flies bred in
your own filth? What would you do if
you were your own horse?"
The saloon was closed at midnight
and a drunken old man was found asleep
at the first street corner. He probably
had enough of his senses at command
when he left the saloon to know the
general direction towards his home for
he still has a place called home; but at
the parting of the ways, his ideas may
have become too confused as to direc
tion, or "Nature's sweet Restorer, balmy
sleep," may have gently called him to
rest in unconsciousness, oblivious for a
while to all his supposed troubles and
ills. But it was not for long. Night
Policeman, Pat Meehan, found him, and
in caring for him was compelled to listen
to the fearful curses of the man he was
helping. The probability is, however,
that if the policeman had not found him,
midnight prowlers might have robbed
him of $125.99 currency be had with him
besides eighty-five beer checks; or, in a
drunken frenzy he might have commit
ted murder or some other heinous crime.
None of us are any too strong, with all
our faculties at command, and so should
not consciously or willfully deprive our
selves of their full force. The morning
comes. The state is kind, in its way,
after all, but disorder of all sorts and
degrees, whether private or public, is
expensive, and somebody must pay.
The temporary home provided for the
weak in will who through their misdeeds
fall into the hands of the guardians of
the peace, is the jail, where reasonable..!
safety all around operates in lieu of a
better device. But it is a small place
for Legion, because many have preceded
him, and must unload itself. The stupid
sleeper of midnight is brought forth and
taken to the police court, in the mean
time being allowed to employ a lawyer
to defend him. Result: fine $5; costs
$10.75; besides the attorney's fee per
haps $10 or $15. What then? Five days
pass, the night comes and the stupid
sleeper is found this time near a different
saloon and on the sidewalk. Has he
learned anything in these five days
anything in the controlling of a habit he
knows has been growing stronger on him
by his indulgence of it? Who knows?
Is be clinging, feebly, to a root on the
side of the steep mountain and looking
down into the chasm below? He is in
the "far country," where yon and I have
been at times, perhaps in a worse state
even than he is now. Is there hope for
him and for us? The story of The Prod
igal Son has its meaning to all the sous
and daughters of the race. We had
many times heard the familiar song
"Home, Sweet Home," but a new meaa
iag was added when in the last repetition
of the chorus, it was rendered: "There is
no place like home." One's real home is
his habit fliCa,

Hans Elliott received by telephone

Tuesday morning, information that
George Thomaztn, in returning home
Monday by wagon from Tarnov. was
overcome by heat, and died at his home,
about ten miles northwest of Platte
Center, at 4 o'clock Monday. The
funeral is to be this Wednesday at 2
o'clock, from the residence, burial in the
family cemetery nearby. He was a mem
ber of Occidental Lodge No. 21, K. of P.
of this city and or the Workmen of
Platte Center. He had been a member,
for bis district, of the county board of
supervisors, and was justice of the peace
of Burrows township at the time of his
death. He was about 50 years old. His
sudden taking-off will be a shock to Mr.
Thomazin's many ardent friends.

This Faaaeas ftnr to Shortly
Exhibit im this City.
Arrangements are now under way for
the appearance of Ringling Brothers'
World's Greatest Shows in Columbus,
Saturday, Aug. 10, has been definitely
decided upon as the date of the big show.
Ringling Brothers need no introduction
to the people of this community. The
reputation of these Napoleonic showmen
and the magnitude of their great exhibi
tion are familiar to the public, from the
Atlantic to the Paoific. Beginning in a
small and modest way a little more than
a dozen years ago, the abow has devel
oped from an ordinary one-ring circus,
employing less than a score of people, to
the largest and most complete circus,
menagerie and hippodrome in the United
States. This phenomenal growth has
been a healthy and legitimate one, for it
has simply kept pace with the growth of
the show n publio esteem and popular
ity. Lasl season the exhibition seemed
to have reached the utmost limit of size
and scope, and yet this year shows a still
greater expansion and the introduction
of hundreds of new, novel and original
features never before associated with a
circus. It has now reached a point
where it is beyond rivalry, and there is
nothing with which to compare it except
its own previous record. In magnitude,
in sensational features, in the number of
its European and American artists, in
the beauty and magnificence of its para
phernalia, in the completeness of its
world-gathered zoological display, in the
thrilling realism of its hippodrome con
tests and the superb character of its
professional displays, it stands entirely
alone. Among the great offerings this
year are sixty aerialists, sixty acrobats,
thirty riders,forty clowns and a vast num
ber of other clever performers. The
headliners include the Holloway Trio of
high-wire gymnasts; Amelia Feeley, the
greatest principal bareback rider that the
world has produced; the Feeley Family
of acrobats; the Wartenburg Brothers,
famous globe jugglers and equilibrists;
the marvelous Garcinetti Troupe of nine
acrobats, imported direct from Italy; the
three Marvelles, grotesque acrobats and
barrel jumpers; the far-famed DaComa
Family of acrobats and aerialists; the
Flying Fishers; the Alpine Sisters;
Ahrens and Ashton; Alvo, Boise and
Picard, aerial bar experts; Mile. Tumour,
the most daring and graceful of all mid
air equilibrists; Miss Minnie Fisher, the
human aerial top; and an entire troupe
of Japanese aerialists and high wire
bicyclists. The trained animal features
are numerous and of a most sensational
character. There are thirty elephants
and twenty of these curious and inter
esting animals appear together in one
ring, at one time, under the direction of
their trainer. O'Brien's sixty-one horse
act is the finest display of trained equine
intelligence ever seen in the United
States. The menagerie has been greatly
augmented for the present season, and
contains hundreds of rare wild animals,
including the only giraffe known to be
alive. Circus day will be inaugurated
with Ringling Brothers' new big street
parade, a magaiioMt processional dis
play that dwarfs all previous efforts in
the line of spectacular pageantry. It ia
over a mile in length, and gorgeous be
yond the power of adequate description.
