The ticket presented by tlio republi
can elnto convention to the suffrages of
the people of Nebraska is not such as wo
can honestly commend as a whole It is
not the product of the republican party
nor even of the majority cf the conven
tion , although eanctioncd by it. The
candidates , with one or two exceptions ,
do not in nny sonno represent
the high order of intelligence , approved
ability and experience in public affairs
which are demanded from executive
state ofliccrs. Indeed it ia conceded on
all hands thatif , this were not n presi
dential year this ticket would bo snowed
under by 10,000 majority. The evil
qcniua of railway monopoly haa again
wielded its baneful influence in forcing

shown a lamentable want of executive
discretion , and candidates who are known

sume * Under the leadership of John M.
Thurston , of the Union Pacific , and Cap
tain Phillips , of the B. & . M. , the con
vention was literally whipped into blun
ders , which the republican masses will
never condone. If the railroads of Ne
braska , whom these political bosses rep
resent in republican conventions , must
dictate who shall bo exalted t'J the posi
tion of governor , auditor , attorney
general , nti'l ether state of
fices they should at leait have
the decency to put up men of brains
instead of dummies nnd small-bore poll-
tiding. If the ropublicul patty has ab
dicated in favor of the railroads itohould
not invita disaster by asking the people
to ratify a choice that would reflect on
their intelligence and self-respect. There
aro' wo are glad to say , two or three
names on the state ticket that all classes
oE republicans may join in supporting.
Of those candidates , as well as tlioso
whom wo cannot commend , THE BEE
will take occasion to speak at an early
day. _ _ _ _ _ _
The domocraticstump orators are claim
ing that the democrats have done moro
in congress for the soldiers than the re
publicans havo. This is an absurd and
cheeky claim in the face of the fact that
the democratic obstructionists are respon
sible for some of the most important
pension legislation. General McPherson -
son , secretary of the republican congres
sional committee , proves conclusively , if
any proof is needed on this matter , that
the democrats have in almost every ins
tance arrayed themselves against any
measure tending to benefit the
union soldiers and sailors
of the late civil war.
Going back to 180(5 ( , MoPhorson shows
that the republicans sustained and the
democrats opposed the provision in
connection with the fourteenth amend
ment to the constitution "that the
validity of the debt incurred for the
payment of ponalons and bounties for
services in Kuoprcssing the rebellion
shall not bo questioned. " The republi
cans ratified this amendment by n party
vote , and put themselves on record at
the start as intending to maintain
their position on pensions and bounties.
When in the second session of the forty-
fifth congress the bill for providing for
.ho arrears of pensions came up , the
democrata voted against it. During the
late session of congress the republicans
proposed an important amendment to
extend the provisions of the Mexican
pension bill so that they should also include -
cludo Union noldiors and widows. On
this question the vote was , yeas 31 , all
republican , and nays 27 , all democratic.
On the final passage of the bill four dem
ocrats voted with thirty-throe republicans
in favor of it , and two republicans voted
twenty five democrats against it , the vote
having boon 37 ayes'to 27 noes , The
bill wa& taken up in the house on the 2d
of July , five days before adjourn
ment when filibustering was re
sorted to under the leadership of Gold
smith W. Hewitt , a democratic repre
sentative from Alabama , to prevent con
currence in the amendments of the sen
ate. This fillibustering was participated
in chiefly by the southern democracy ,
and as n result of it no action was taken ,
nnd the bill remains undisposed of. Thus
it will bo soon that the democratic minor
ity , in the days immediately following
the war , can claim no credit for early
I pension legislation. The majority ol
their party voted in opposition to the
arrears , bill , 'and for the failure of the
pension legislation recently in the house
the responsibility is clearly with tin
southern wing of the parly.
BANK failures nnd robberies are no1
confined to this country. Such thingi
occur elsewhere , but In no country d <
the thieves escape so easily as they do it
the United States. In Franco they troa
bank thieves as criminals. One of tin
directors of the burated bank of Lyons o
Loire has boon sent to prison for fivi
years , and in addition hui boon fmci
20,000 francs and deprived of his civi
and political rights for ton years. Th
manager was sent up for five months cm
fined 8,000 frauci. The ether director
were fined in various amounts. Some o
these directors not only did not profit b ;
the failure , but were losers. Is over the
in less they were punished for nogligonc
in not exorcising a proper vigilance eve

it- have prevented the robbery and failur

because if the men "work fewer hour
they must receive loss pay ; " and bocaua
"it does not prohibit the making for an ;
number of hour's work , I think ; and i
it does , it is an interference with the em
players' ns well as the employes' rights.1
t Surely , it is late in the day for any mai
to put out such claptrap as this. If 1 *
was "class legislation , " the statute booki
are full of it. The eight-hour law o
congress is of that kind ; BO is tin
ton hour law of this state ; BO is the pro *
cut lion law ; so is the proposed law ti

though ho ought to know that it is a fundamental
damontal law of political economy tha
wages for such labor are increased , if i

makes an additional demand fo
laborers. It was argued by Karl Reube
in this paper last week that "wages ar
regulated , not by the number of workin '
houra , but by the competition , the auj
ply and demand of working liauda ; the '
wages , the market price of the arlic'o
labor , will rise with its increase. " If
Cleveland hnd known anything at all of

There is n swindle perpetrated upon
the people , to which farmers are especi
ally victims , which should bo put a atop
to. Wo refer to the lightning rod ped
dler , the wuroa ho disposes of and the
manner in which ho puts up his light
Wo start out with the declaration that
there is not ono in ton thousand light
ning rods put up correctly though nearly
every farm house in the wcat has its cop
per lightning rod , steel or iron attach
ment , ornamcntad with spear heads ,
brass balls , or vanes. A lightning rod ,
too , when not properly put up is n great
deal worao than none at all. It is well ,
then , considering how many farm houtcs
have such attachments , that the people
should know how they are jeopardizing
their lives nnd property by keeping up
the means of n sudden nnd dreadful vis
itation , or buying the moanu for such a
disaster by purchasing rods from light
ning rod poddlara and allowing thorn to
put them up.
It is well to have a house protected
against a sudden stroke of lightning by
moans of n rod , but it'o of the first Im
portance to know how to put the rod up
ns a moans of mfoty nnd not as the way ,
or avenue , to invlto certain destruction.
A lichtnlng rod should have wires con
necting with all the motnlic surface or
part of n roof , and should bo run into
moist ground with n motalic base of , at
least , ton foot of oquaro surface. There
are no need of the glass insulatois that
poddlara sell along with their rods , for a
rod with proper ground connection nnd
projecting above the highest point of a
house , can bo stapled along the side of
the house without fear of the electric
current being deflected into the house.
The current socks the best current , ana
that is afforded by the lightning rod
properly put up.
Houses surrounded by troeu , or having
higher buildings in proximity , nrd safe
so safe that lightning rods can bo dis
pensed with. But when a house ia iso
lated , or occupies n commanding site , it
is safest to bo guarded , with lighting rod
protection , but after the style and man
ner prescribed above. All farm buildinps
in a prairie country like Kansas , lor in
stance , are exposed and should bo pro
Ono house is as much exposed as an
other when isolated , or not surrounded
by trees or some moro commanding ob
ject than the building itself , and the lia
bility of the house to bo struck can not
bo divined by any pretended electrician
or anybody else.
Wo have hoard of vendors of lightning
rods presuming upon the ignorance of
the people by assuming to discover elec
trical currents in the vicinity of their
houses. The method of these charlatans
is to walk over the land with a crotched
hazel bush or stick in his hands , and
when the npox of the divining rod turnou
earthwards , then a powerful and dang
erous current is said to bo discovered ,
which , if not connoctes with the upper
regions by n lightning rod , invitua an
electrical dischnrgo jeopardizing thuhouso
in the event of un electrical disturbance
in the atmoaphor.
This is all nonaonso. All houaos are
are liable to bo struck , but isolated ouea
are moat likely to bo It is proper and

If , now , wo talco models of four brains ,
nnd on the first mark out the location of
the various nroas connected with the
various aonsory organs as determined by
the anatomical connection of the white
nerve threads ; on the second mark out
the Ipc.itinn of the various areas which
physiologists have shown to govojn
various sensory organs , on the third
mark out the various areas whoso disease
produces disturbance of action in the
various sensory organs , nnd loss of mem
ories of perceptions by thoao organs ; and
on the fourth mark out the various areas
which wither after discaso of the various
eonsory organs wo shall .find that upon
all four brains the areas belonging to any
organ coincide. Wo may therefore conclude -
cludo that each class of sensations
and each class of memories has its own
definite area of the gray matter on the
surface of the brain. Memories of objects
seen are located in the posterior part of
the occipital region. Memories of sounds
hoard are located in the lower lateral part
in the temporal region. Memories of
motions in the limbs , and of touch in
those limbs , are located side by side in
the central lateral region. Memories of
speech are located in the frontal region.
It is therefore a mistake to speak of
memory as a single faculty of the mind.
It is really an assemblage of distinct
memories which wo possess , each kind of
memory being as different Irom the others
both in its nature and location as are the
different organs of sense through which
the original perception camo.

of luck I had the very luafc time I tackloi
the game. That was last \vuok , in a
place on couth Clark street , Chicago
Most wonderful thing. After playing nl
around the lay-out tor awhilu 1 struck
the queen , and what d'yo s'poao thu olc
lady did for me ? Well , sir , eho came
out twelve straight times a winner nml ]
was on her every time and doubling my
bet every turn. Wonderful , wonderful
wasn't it ? "
"Wonderful is no name for it , " roplioc
the ether ; "but what puzzles mo ia how a
man could have thu nerve and good sense
to drop the gauio after striking such i
winuor. How have you managed it ? I
must congratulate you. "
"Congratulate mo ? What for ? "
"Why , on your luck in playing on a
card twelve times winner , doubling your

queen won twelve straight times , but ' .

"You didn't know I was an inventor ,

his companions on a P.inhnndlo train.
"Woll , I am , though , liavo got a big
thing , too. Got it right hero undoi

What if it isn't bigger than n hnt box1
1 tell you there's power enough inside ol
it to blow up the boiler of the locomo
tive ahead there or knock this train from
the track. It's powerful and no mistake ,
and dangerous to handle. Killed twc
men in Indianapolis only last week. Not
long ago it tackled a big clothing house
in Philadelphia nnd absolutely ruined it.
A week before that it wrecked a otoamor
on Chesapeake Bay. The pilot had been
experimenting with it for several months
and finally got careless. No trouble
about power power enough to knock
the earth off its axis. The trouble is to
apply it. Now I'll take the lid off nnd
show you ; oh , you fellows needn't jump
off the train. I know how to handle it ,
and there ain't any danger. "
"What do you call it. "
"It's a storage battery , the moat per
fect and powerful storaco battery ever
constructed. Iliad it made in Now Jor-
soy. Before taking the lid off I'll turn
the box over nnd show you como back
here ; I toll you there's no danger ana

The box was turned over , nnd on its
bottom the trembling drummers saw this

A VOODOO HOOTOH'S \VORK ,
lie'Sets.i CrowdJoT NCRPOOS to Work
STAIIUSVILIE , Ga. , August 24 , In
Tune of this year n negro came from Aln-
jam Montgomery , ho saya to a neigh-
jorhood nbout nine miles south of Cov-
ngton. Ho worked a short time ns A day
aboror on the plantation of John Dukes.
Jo soon mndo known to the negroes
on the place and in the neighborhood
tint ho had been directed to this place by
\ spirit to find 17i bushels of gold , that
i ad boon buried by n band of robbers
about 7o years ago. lie said the place
was on a branch road nbout 100 yards be-
owtho Oovington aud Monticollo road ,
and nbout 10 miles from Covington. lie
ircmiaed the owner of the landono-fourth
if the gold. To negroes who would as-
i-.t him ho would gtvo n liberal
haro. After much praying ,
many incantations , and much
ceremony he ( selected the precise spot for
ho digging. Ho cat near by with an
open bible , beneath which ooveral horao
shoes wore placed and a white rock hid
on the open pages. Ho neither spoke
nor allowed any ono of the laborers to
speak within a curtain distance of the ex
cavation. The men are working night
and day with great earnestness. The ex
cavation is about 10 foot square and
nbout 20 fcot deep. The dirt is lifted
nit with n bucket. The men are not nl-
lowed to chow tobacco or stop work
during the time allotted to the work lest
it may cause the had spirit to overpower
the good spirit under whoso guidance
they are working. Tills bad spirit nas it
in his power to move the gold if nt any
time ho gaiuo ascendency of the good
spirit. The man has infatuated so many
negroes that there are many standing
ready to fill the pieces of thoao who nro
tired. The excavation is 'about six feet
through washings from the field ; then
soft rock is struck , which continues as
dorp us the excavation has boon mado.
The disintegrated rock has no appear-
unco of over having boon disturbed.
The faith in the Voodoo doctor
seems to blind them to the foot thnt had
any gold over boon buried there this
rock would show signs of disturbance.
The owner of the land forbade them
working longer , but they untreated him
BO earnestly that ho consontcdto letthom
go deeper. They are willing to go 80
feet deep if the doctor says so. This
portion of Newton county was settled
about 05 years ago. There is no tradi
tion that money was over buried hero
nor that it was infested by a band of rob-
bors. The grandfather of the present
owner of the land Bottled the lot upon
which the excavation is being mado.
There are ether families in the neighbor
hood who have lived there continuously
from the firat settlement that never
hoard of money being buried. The voodoo
dee doctor is a black negro , with high
cheek bones and retreating forehead.
Ho goes barefooted , and with his clothes
very much worn. Ho appears to be
about CO yoara of ago. llo has never
lived in the county before so far as is
