The time for which Joe Bartley was
paroled by Governor Savage is about
half gone, and yet, so far as the general
oublio is concerned, there is only con
jecture as to why he was paroled for
sixty days. We have no doubt that in
due time the governor will communicate
to his constituents his reasons for the
parole, and also for such subsequent
action as he may think advisable. If
the parole shall have been proven justi
fiable by the promises made, and the
event shall have proved favorable to the
public interest, well and good. Other

Governor Savage, State Treasurer
Stueffer and Secretary of 8tate Marsh
made the Norfolk hospital for the insane
an official visit Monday. At Fremont, it
is reported that the governor said to an
interviewer that when be paroled Mr.
Bartley, the letter made certain definite,
specific promises as to what he would do,
and whenever he carries out those prom
ises, the governor feels under obligations
to do something for him. The governor
added emphatically: "If he does not
carry out those pledges which have been
made by himself he will have to go back
to the penitentiary and stay there."
From the Cadiz (Ohio) Republican and

sixty-five to eighty souls, including pas

J. R. Buchanan, general passenger
agent for the Fremont road, says: "In
many places the ranchmen in northwest
Nebraska are cutting buffalo grass where
it waa never possible to secure hay in
former years. The cattle are in such
good condition that they are lazy. It is
estimated that there are 150,000 cattle in
Cherry county alone this year. All the
northera counties in Nebraska are in as
nourishing condition as could be wished
for. The sand hills which have been the
butt of so much ridicule, are a garden
spot this season."
The 5-year-old daughter of Samuel
McPrease of Hanston, twenty miles from
Lamed, Kansas, apparently died August
11. Funeral services were held the next

cofan and opened it, whereupon the child
sat up and called for her mother. The
horses were knocked down, but no other
damage was done. The little girl is in a
fair way to recovery. It is believed she
was in a cataleptic state, from which the
lightning shock aroused her.

of particular interest to all Journal

Anthrax has appeared again in the
northern part of Cuming ooaaty, this
time among the cattle belonging to Fred
Schmidt, who lives one and a half miles
south of Fred Gilster, whose cattle were
afflicted with this disease two weeks.
He lost several bead at that time. Sinoe
inoculating his herd Gilster has not lost
any more cattle. Schmidt's cattle began
to die on Friday of last week. The first
one he skinned, not knowing what ailed
it, and allowed the hogs to eat the car
cass. As a result he lost of hogs thirty
five head that ate of the carrion. Hia
dog also died of eating of it The hoga
heads swelled up to enormous size and
finally burst open, causing death. Ia
skinning the animal one of Schmidt's
fingers got poisoned from the disease
and he has been .having a serious time of
it and is in danger of not only losing his
hand, but his life from blood poisoning.
He is under the doctor's care and is get

to determine just what crops will bring
him the largest returns in money. Print

in the clearest and most easily compre
hended manner imaginable. The map is
to cover the whole of the United States
and will be on such a scale that every
ten acre patch will be represented by
one-eighth of an inch square. But each
farmer will be able to procure a chart of
his own neighborhood on a larger scale,
so that he can arrange his planting in
accordance with the suggestions which
it conveys. The work is done by town
ships to start with, and these are put
together to make counties, which are
finally assembled to form complete maps
of states. Exchange.
While some children were playing in
the dirt upon the farm of Joe Lamb,
near Hubbell, they unearthed a roll of
greenbacks which measured about four
inches through. They were so badly
decomposed by their contact with the
earth that they were falling to pieces,
but by the use of a powerful glass one of
them was found to be of a thousand dol
lar denomination. The roll waa imme
diately sent to the treasury department
at Washington. There are a number of
conjectures as to the circumstances sur
rounding the rich deposit, but the most
plausible theory seems to be that it had
some connection with the famous Hub
bell railroad wreck that occurred some
fifteen years ago. Fremont Tribune.

It seems that several citizens of the
town may possibly get into soma trouble
because they have not complied with a
city ordinance concerning sidewalks,
passed and "approved March 29, 1901.
The construction or the 'repair of all
sidewalks must be done under the di
rection of the street commissioner or the.
committee on streets, and in certain'
specified parts of the city may be of
pine lumber, but in others mentioned
must be of flagstone, oonorete, vitrified
brick, cement or tiling. If otherwise
the ordinance declares them a nuisance.
For violation of the ordinance a fine of
$5 to $20 may be imposed. Consulta
tion with the street commissioner as to
grade, material for aidewalk, eta, may
save you trouble and expense.

to either keep the fence in good repair or
keep an eye on the cattle. Cattle are
fond of corn and sometimes will not wait
for it to ripen. It is not a good plan to
cut up corn and throw it over the fence
unless the fence is a first-class one.
They will hang around the feeding place

through. Better haul it to them and
change the place of feeding, if they are
to be fed in the pasture. It paya to feed

Osteopathy, the Dragleat Science.
It is a means of curing diseases, with
out the use of drugs or the knife, by
using the hands to remove any pressure
on the nerves, arteries and veins, so that
the circulation of the fluids and gases of
the body will be restored to a normal
condition. It is based on a knowledge
of the anatomy, physiology and chem
istry of the human body. Osteopathy
cures all curable diseases.
The suspensory treatment cures curva
tures and all abnormalities of the spine,
when all other methods fail. This device
is something new, and we would be glad
to have those who have spinal troubles
call and investigate this new treatment.
Consultation and examination free.
