"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 asked. "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 matter. "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 London Times. "There, what did,. I tell you!" was the returned traveler's comment FRISCHHOLZ BROS. shoes clothing Gents' Furnishing' Goods KTaT.TAttT.y. GOODS, AT RIGHT PRICES.

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. Child's Underskirt. 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. Columbus. IKI Beaver Valley Roller Mill Destroyed By Fire. The Beaver Valley Roller Mill, owned and operated by H. E. Fonda & Brothers, was entirely destroyed by Are Tuesday afternoon. 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 to root. 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 Chapman. Genoa Times. Columbus Power Canal. Mr. W. R. McKeen is going to trolley ize Nebraska. His associate is E. H.

"Bile" McKeen. the father of the young man, was the first person to show Ives, the former Napoleon of Finance, tbat even a county clerk had wisdom. McKeen wrested the Vandalia road from Ives when he had only a county clerk's salary to do it with. For a long while be was president of the system. He owns now one of the finest farms in the world.

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 round-up. 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. H. G.
