IT IS CRIME SUPREME.
Pierce City, Ma, is a town of 3,000
people. A girl was attacked by a negro
with lecherous intent as she was re
turning alone from church sunaay
mniM and left dead by the side of
the railroad track, with her-throat cut
from ear to ear.
For fifteen hours the population of
the town was in a frenzy or vengerui
fury. The supposed murderer was
hanged. His grandfather was shot to
death. Another negro was cremated in
his cabin. The houses of five negroes
m hnrned down and thirty negro
families before rifles seized at the state
militia arsenal were driven from the
place to refuge in the weeds and woods.
And after fifteen hours of this work
the mob finds that it lynched sn inno
cent man and that the negro who tallies
with the description of the murderer is
in jail across the border in Indian ter
ritory. And so it proved once again, if that
were necessary, that a mob, with im
pulses all exaggerated and distorted,
cannot be depended on to do the swift
justice which it always angrily boasts it
The mob spirit seems to be growing
in recklessness, if that were possible.
This is believed to be the third or fourth
innocent man lynched in the last six
months. If brutality and savagery do
not deter from mob practices, will not
the awful mistakes of killing innocent
men have some effect? The very exist
ence of a mob-, the very suggestion of a
lynching, is a rank injustice to every
member of society. Omana wona-ner-
The bimrast transaction ever recorded
in the historv of the apple trade of the
United States, has just occurred, the
sale for $54,000 cash of the apple product
of 1,000 acres of orchard, estimated to
harvest 100,000 barrels. The purchasing
firms agreed to do all the picking and
take all risk of storms and other dangers.
The orchard belongs to S. A. Haseltine,
Green county, Missouri; the apples are
now in splendid condition, and are all of
the Ben Davis variety, that will ripen
early. Mr. Haseltine says that with the
use of a mothcatcher he had been able
to orotect the entire apple crop from the
attacks of worms, which have destroyed
half the apples of the country this
The September Review of Reviews is
an unusual number, even for that maga

strike, the career of Admiral Schley, the
contributions of Dr. Koch to the modern
method of dealing with consumption,
the rapid advance of the horseless car
riage, the conditions in Kansas after the
severe summer's drought, are some of
the subjects treated in this number, and
each subject is dealt with by an expert.
The census bureau has issued a bul
letin giving the mortality statistics dur
ing the census year in the states and
territories and the principal registration
cities: The total number of deaths
reported for the year was 1,039,004, as
against 841,419 for 1890. Perhaps the
most important feature of the results
presented is found in the decrease in the
general death rate in the registration
area of 1.86 per 1,000 of population, a
decrease of nearly 10 per cent The
average age at death in 1890 was 31.1
years; in 1900 it was 352 years.
One son and a daughter of John
Ouidinger, a farmer living three miles
east of Leigh, are down with smallpox.
They contracted the disease at Fremont,
where they had been attending the Nor
mal school. They came home on the
cars, attended a dance at Clarkson and
afterwards, and on the same day that a
doctor pronounced it to be smallpox in
a severe form, a reception was held at
the Ouidinger place, at which a large
number were present from various
J at Eye See, 2:10 trotting and 2-06A
pacing, nearly bled to death recently at
the Case farm, near Racine, Wis., where
he has been allowed to run about for
the past eight rears. The gelding
struck a foreleg on a barbed-wire fenc
ing, and cut himself badly. When
found by the farm hands he was in a
weak condition from loss of blood. A
few years ago he nearly bled to death
through cutting himself with glass. He
is 23 years old.
The State asylum for the insane at
Norfolk, is to have an additional well
sunk, either five or six inches in diame
ter and from 190 to 140 feet deep. Con
struction of the big standpipe recently
ordered to be erected, was begun last
week. It is to be 100 feet high, with a
uniform diameter of ten feet It will
rest on a base of masonry sunk eight
feet into the ground and projecting two
feet above the surface.
Indications point almost conclusively
to the suicidal drowning of James T.
Hoffman, former assistant postmaster at
Newman Grove, somewhere in the Mis
souri river near Omaha. Letters and
papers found last Friday on clothing
left on the river bank indicate his inten
tion of ending his life. A letter to his
mother tells of his discouraged life on
account of whisky.
Chicago capitalists have a force of
men at work at Brickton, near Hastings,
Nebraska, to properly handle the sand
that is to be run through the mining
machine which it is thought will separ
ate and gather the flour gold in the sand.
The machine is in place.
The state of Kansas has over $7,000,000
in the permanent school fund which it
wants to invest in Kansas school bonds,
out eastern brokers are outbidding the
commissioners, and are thus securing
most of the bonds.
The census bureau has made public
the mortality statistics for the year 1900.
In a table of forty cities of the United
States. St Joseph, Mo , shows a death
rate of 9.1 per thousand, being the low
est mortality, whila Shreveport, La-,
shows the highest 45.5 being their rate
to the thousand. The average age at
death in 1890 was 31.1 years; in .1900 it
was 35.2 years. Death from all the prin
cipal diseases shows a decrease since
1890, the most notable being in consump
tion, which decreased 54.9 per 100,000.
The Union Pacific railroad announces
a 2 percent dividend on both its com

expenses and therefore increase the

The League Assembly which was
held in Fullerton ten days ending last
Friday, was a decided success, so much
so that it is probable that the assembly
will be kept as a permanent organiza
tion. The location at Fullerton is ex
cellent, the natural scenery of the
grounds beautiful, making one feel that
a picturesque bit of mountainous coun
try is set down in this vast stretch of
plains, for the use of such gatherings.
This part of the state is in need of just
such kind of an attractive camping
place and it would be a pity to give it
up, now that it is so well started. The
Assembly had as high as 4,000 people in
one day; a carload of tents were pitohed,
and many more would have been used it
available. The programs throughout
were good, and the lectures of the
famous colored orator, Dr. Bowen, also
of Dr. Shepard, and the concerts of the
Slayton Jubilee singers, were all excel
lent The citizens of Fullerton have
recognized the benefits of the assembly
and have promised the authorities to put
about $200 improvements on the
grounds, providing the assembly is made
permanent. About thirty people from
Columbus visited the grounds during the
session, and a great many more will
ctoubtleaa attend next year. The suc
cess is due largely to the past president
J. J. Burley. Rev. E. B. King of St
Edward has been elected president for
the coming year.
It seems evident that the tramp or
hobo nuisance has again got to a point
needing treatment of a common-sense
and effective sort Work, it strikes
everybody, is the remedy, and how would
this plan do, suggested by a policeman
who has the nuisance to deal with every
day in some shspe? Let the city have a
stone pile, where stone can be pounded
for use in filling holes in the streets;
also a wood pile, where wood can be
sawed; and then whenever anybody is
found begging from door to door, arrest
them for vagrancy and give them work
on the stone or the wood pile? It
adopted generally over the country, the
tramp might, by force of circumstances,
enforced by his own good thoughts, con
clude that to work is bettor than to loaf
and lounge and steal and disturb the
orderly community in their legitimate
business. The true principle is, of
course, that right work is good in every
respect, while being a necessity; the
tramp's notion is "avoid work," and it
isn't wholesome, either for himself or for
the people among whom he meanders
during the summer months, The most
modern up-to-date tramp who makes
that his business all the time is a criminal-minded
chap bent upon preying on
society, and be don't scruple to do any
thing, so he himself escapes the clutches
of the law. The practical thing for
Columbus is that he will go around the
place where he would be made to do
The laws of 1901 have added Sec 129
to the former laws on Roads, and we

readers in Nebraska:

Osteopathy, the Drugleu 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 nnd 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
coll and investigate this new treatment.
Consultation and examination free.
