"See that man?" the lately returned
traveler remarked to a friend, indi
cating an individual a little ahead of
them in the elevated car. "Well,
I never saw him before, but I'll lay
a good sized bet that he's an English
man, and. moreover, a Londoner."
"How do you tell?" the friend
"By the way he wears his hat," was
the reply. "Notice how it is jammed
down on the head. Englishmen,
especially Londoners, put on their hats
for keeps. No chance is taken of be
ing separated from a 'bowler' that's
what the derby is called over there.
And it's the same way with a top
hat, or a straw, or a cap, for that
"The American wears his hat light
ly in comparison and so do the peo
ple of southern continental Europe.
The French, for example, have a pen
chant for hats that seem a bit too
small for them; at any rate, their
headgear doesn't appear to be very
firmly- fixed. It may be my fancy, but
an Italian always impresses me as a
bit uncomfortable in a hat. At all
events, he likes to avoid wearing it
whenever possible. But your English
man wears his hat thoroughly and se
riously. It's tilted back a HtUe, as a
rule, and the nearer it is to his ears
the safer he feels."
Just then the man ahead drew a
paper from his pocket, spread it open,
and began to read it It was the
"There, what did,. I tell you!" was
the returned traveler's comment

HOMER ROIBNSON, Pris.
A wise erecauuon.
In dusting with a damp cloth on
which a drop or two of linseed oil
has been placed, be careful that It is
not used on a damp day or when one
has not time to rub it thoroughly into
the grain. If you neglect this simple
precaution all that has not been ab
sorbed by the wood will show up on
the next rainy day in a smeared sur
face, and the dust will stick to it in
stead of being removed.
Plain Baked Custard.
Beat four eggs, whites and yolks,
together slightly. Add one quart fresh
milk, four tablespoonfuls of sugar, a
pinch of salt and whatever flavoring is
desired. Nutmeg is the old-fashioned
flavoring that most people like. Rose
water Is delicate and almond good,
though not so wholesome as other
flavors. Bake in stoneware cups or a
bowl set in a basin of hot water. Take
care that the oven is not too hot.
To make a child's warm underskirt
take the lower part of papa's warm
woolen shirt and cut on the right
length from the bottom; sew onto a
waist, and you have a nice, warm
skirt. If one is handy with the
crochet needle the bottom can be
finished with a shell stitch.
Dessert for Two.
Peel, core, and slice thin one large,
sweet apple. Peel carefully and slice
one seedless orange. Put all in deep
dish with one-half cup sugar and place
in ice box. Should be prepared one
hour before serving.
Beaver Valley Roller Mill Destroyed
The Beaver Valley Roller Mill, owned
and operated by H. E. Fonda & Brothers,
was entirely destroyed by Are Tuesday
The mill was not running at the time,
having shut down in order that some
repairs could be made. W. W. Tallman,
night miller, was in the third story of
the building when the fire broke out. It
was about 4 o'clock when he heard Mr.
Christy cry out for help, lie hurried
down to the second story in response to
the call, when he discovered smoke com
ing from below followed by a blaze. He
managed to get to the ground floor, but
found the smoke so thick that he was
compelled to orawl on his hands and
knees to the door, near which the tele
phone is placed, and called up central,
but before the call was answered Mr.
Tallman was driven away by the sudden
rush of flames, and by the time he got
outside the interior of the mill was all on
fire. He rushed to the west aide of the
bnilding in the hope of finding Mr.
Christy, but he failed to discover him.
Hurrying to the residence of George
Kilion he telephoned to town for help,
which was at once responded to.
Within a short time after Mr. Tallman
emerged from the building the entire
structure was in flames from basement
A threshing machine engine was hur
ried to the mill, the sand pump used on
the city well secured and as soon as pos
sible the fire company commenced
throwing water on the ruins, but it was
not until after one o'clock that the work
of searching the ruins was commenced
for the remains of Mr. Christy. This
work was kept up until 9 o'clock in the
forenoon, when it became apparent that
the body of Mr. Christy was not in the
basement. The workmen then turned
their attention to the mill race, as it was
thought that possibly Mr. Christy had
escaped through the open door on the
west side of the mill and jumped into the
race. The bead of the race was darned,
and most of the water drained off. but a
careful search failed to reveal the re
mains. At this writing the river above
the dam is being dragged.
The supposition is that Mr. Christy, if
he is not in the river, became temporarily
deranged and wandered away.
At the time of the fire he had gone
into the basement with a gasoline torch.
Luce Parson, a young man of 18, passed
throngh the basement of the mill shortly
before the fire was discovered and saw
Mr. i.'hristy with a torch in his hand
Some are of the opinion tbat the blaze
from the gasoline lamp ignited flour dust
in the air. and this theory is strength
ened by the fact that the lire spread so
rapidly, enveloping the interior of the
mill in flames in half a- minute from the
time Mr. Tallman heard Mr. Christy's
cry for help,
Harry Fonda, resident member of the
firm, was in Omaha at the time of the
fire, but was informed of his loss and
the probable death of Mr. Christy. He
left at once, for Genoa, reaohing Colum
bus at 3 o'clock Wednesday morning, and
Genoa three hours later.
The loss to Fonda Bros, is between
eight and ten thousand dollars. The
property was insured in the Millers
Mutual Company for $5,000. The firm
will at once proceed to erect a new plant
on the site of the old one. In the mean
time the business will be carried on as
usual, and flour purchased elsewhere for
the firm's patrons.
Since the above wan placed in type, a
telegram was received at 3:45 Wednes
day afternoon from Mr. Christy, dated
at Grand Island, stating that he was
alive and well, and requesting Mr. Fonda
to notify his family.
The probability is tbat Mr. Christy,
after a narrow escape from death in the
burning mill, snflV red a temporary aber
ration of mind and wandered away
walking to the main line of the Union
Pacific and boarding a west bound train.
When be- reached Grand Island, he evi
dently realized what had happened and
sent the message as stated above.
Mr. Christy reached home late on
Wednesday evening. He was at Chap
man, a email station on the U. P. eleven
miles east of Grand Isiand. when he
came to himself. He had thirty cents in
his pocket and purchased a ticket for
Grand Island, and from that place wired
a brother living in Kansas Cit to tele
graph him some money, and later wired
to Genoa that he was alive and well.
His mind, after jumping out of the mill
window, was a blank until be reached

FIERCE DUELS ON AN ISLAND.
Thirty Thousand Sheep and Goats
Fight-Daily on San" Clements.
Mile after mile of sheep ready for
shearing, not to mention mile after
mile of goats, for butting, was the
sight that greeted Superintendent Zim- !
mer of the Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals, when he visit:
ed San Clemente, from which island he
returned recently, says the Los An
geles Times. Next month the sheep
and the goats will be separated; not
in the old Biblical way, but in mod
ern style and after an exciting
San Clemente island is 2S miles long,
and to Mr. Zimmer it seemed as if he
saw 2S miles of sheep. He was nor
there on business, but as the guest of
the owners of the island, Robert and
Charles "Howland and Mrs. Howland.
Where he couldn't see sheep he spied
soats. There are nearly 25.000 of
the former and 4.000 of the latter.
The goats are an unmitigated nui
sance, because they kill so many
sheep, and are being hunted.
It takes a long time to round up the'
sheep. Mr. Zimmer says they seem to
know when the attempt is to be made.'
Just now it is easy to get near them. -but
as soon as they see a number
of horseback riders and other indica
tions that they are about to lose their
wool, they get down into the gullies
and hide. -and it takes strenuous efforts
to corral them.
Far wilder than the sheep are the
goats. They stay in the canyons and
usually won't mix with the former,
but when the fancy seizes them they
charge down on the flocks and butt
the lambs to death.
In formation the island- is very like
the rolling country around San Pedro.
It is believed to have been the burial
ground of giant Indians who inhabit
ed this coast in the early times. Mr.
Zimmer says that from a place 500
or 600 feet square a number of skulls
of the original native sons have been
taken. The indications are that the
giants were buried in rows.
