Nebraska, and settled on n claim just

At one time the officers under Lord
Howe refused to drink his health at
their mess, for, though n splendid ad
miral, he was not popular in the navy
on account of a certain shyness and
want of tact with those about him.
The chaplain, who was a protege of
his lordship, was mortified at this and
determined that the officers should
drink to Lord Howe. When called
upon for a toast one day he said, "Well,
gentlemen, I can think of nothing bet
ter at this moment than to ask you to
drink the first two words of the Third
Psalm, for a Scriptural toast for once
may be taken from one of my cloth."
The toast was drunk. Not one of the
officers Indicated by word or look that
he was Ignorant of the words alluded
to. On referring to the Bible it was
founds that the Third Psalm begins,
"Lord, how are they Increased?"
Worth Her Weight In Buttar.
Curious customs still prevail with
regard to marlrage. In some parts of
Uganda the custom is to offer sis
needles and a pack of India rubber for
a wife. Some of the Kaffirs sacrifice
oxen. The Tartars of Turkestan give
the weight of the prospective wife in
butter. In Kamchatka the price va
ries from one to ten reindeer. Some
savages require a certain amount of
labor. Among the aborigines it Is said
the current rate for a wife is a box
of matches, which prompted a Paris
contemporary to speculate whether one

Light an a Dark Subject.
Caller There's one question I should
like to have answered. When a thought
flashes across the intellect does It 'ef
fect any molecular changes in the cel
lular or muscular tissues composing
the material substance of the cerebral
mass, or does it operate merely in
the realm of the spiritual ego, thereby
leaving no trace subject to detection
or classification in the domain of sub
stantiality? Information Editor (turn
ing again to his desk) There is no pre
mlum on the coin. Chicago Tribune.
This question whether a word
should have its adverbial or its ad
jective form seems to me to have little
to do with the sense. Now, what ii
the difference between talking loud
and talking loudly?"
"No difference," replied the pedagog
ical friend. "But look here. For a
large fee you give legal advice freely,
but you dou't give it free. I think
that will retain you for awhile."

at Schuyler on Tuesday. For a number
of'yeara the deceased has been making
hia home in that city with one of hia
daughters, Mn. M. Becker. For a year
paat hia health has been gradually fail-.

unexpected. Rudolph Abley was a na
tive of Germany, in which country be
waa born nearly eighty years ago.
When a young man he came to America
settling in the far south, and for years
worked on the boats that plied up and
down tbe lower Miviesippi. From there
he came to Colfax county in 1870, or ror
ty-one years ago, which means that a
little more tbandf of bis life was spent
within the bordffs or this county. It
waa only a few years after he took up
hia residence here that his wire was call
ed to the better world, and then came
the hard years that all tbe old-timers
experienced. Through it all he wan
both father and mother to his children,
a helpful, tender, christian parent to
whom no sacrifice was too great if made
for the welfare or his loved ones. He
was among one or the first men we learn
ed to know ae a boy, 'and throughout all
the intervening years we have honored
and respected him. It haa been said
thai an honeat man is tbe noblest
work of the Creator such a man was
Rudolph Abley. Ue did hia full share
in the upbuilding of our commonwealth,
waa a good citizen each and every day he
lived in it, was a good neighbor, a most
steadfast friend, and a model parent.

a serious attack of liver trouble and
other complications. We sympathize

tbe company would furnish a helper.
Monday evening Mr. B. M. Buskirk,
from Miller, Neb., arrived and Tuesday
morning the business waa turned over to
him, Mr. Parker retiring. There is no
question about there being more work at
tbe Platte Center depot than one man
can do and do it right. Mr. Parker has
been here over seven years, and has been
a faithful servant for the company and
haa given satisfaction to tbe public, and
they regret that be is compelled to quit.
