A llttlo incident was brought to the nt-
toition of n reporter ycstculay , which
Jllustrutcs In u marked decree how much
good a lillie act of kindness may accom
plish. r '
About twelve years ago n young girl ,
only about 'thirteen years of age , was
lirought into police court charged with
toeing n disorderly person. She was
fatherless nnd motherless , mid hnd lend
n life which wns quite the opposite of relining -
lining in its tendencies. lint still her
fnco wns round mid rosy , nml with her
golden hair she was u beautiful child ,
"What to do with her was n-qucstion with
the city authorities She was undoubted
ly guilty of what she' was charged with ,
and the only remedy for her case
seemed to bo n short term of
confinement. Just us the was about
to bo sentenced , however , a well known
attorney who was present a hed to bo al
lowed si fo\V Inomont's ' con vorna lion with
the girl , which was granted. At Its clobo
the gentleman surprised the court by
nuking that the girl's case bo dUni'Mscd ,
[ promising that , ho would be responsible
.for bnr notions hi this future. As it was
enHlestfWay-out of the dilemma , the
p'udgo was owy'toglad to comply with
'the ' gentleman's request , anil the self-ap
pointed guardian walked out of the court
room with his protege in charge. Ho se
cured employment for horns u domestic
I in u private family , and made her prom-
'jR'i ' to corno and bco him us often .HS DOS-
Bible. 'J'he girl lived up to her a rcr mimt ,
nnd the gentleman's kind treatment and
advice which ho gave her in hur little
troubles cOniploWly won her heart.
'Time passed away rapidly and the little
girl became ,11 , young woman. Shu
was . an excellent housekeeper ;
her character was beyond reproach.
She became trioro and m.n'c beautiful as
HIO matured in years , until at nineteen
she met a wealthy railroad man , who fell
deeply in love with her. She returned
Ills affections , but when ho asked her
hand in marMngo slid refuse' ' ! him. Ho
pressed his suit , however , and finally she
related to him the story of her early life ,
/jiving / it as the reason why she hail re
fused liis suit. Her lover was not thus to
be driven from her and she finally gave
her consent to the marriage. The wed
ding occurred shortly afterwards , and
the newly married pair took up their
residence in an elegant homo in u west
ern city , where they now live.
Last week a bountiful woman , hand
somely dressed , ari'ived in the city and
called upon the lawyer above referred to.
At first h6. did not reeogni/.e her , but
when she spoke Of the little girl whom he
had taken from\ the police court years
ngo his e.yes were opened , and be Know
h B visitor to bo Ids former protege.
Both were deeply affected by the meet
ing , and fervent were the thanks which
the lady gave the lawyer for his kindness
to her in the past.
The next day the lady loft the city for
New York , and yesterday sailed for Flor
ida , where she will spend the winter on
nn extensive plantation owned by her
husband. Through her benefactor the
Btory reached the ears of a HEE reporter ,
tut the condition was imposed that no
names should bo used. Iho story is a
remarkable one , and , as remarked be
fore , HhowB how an act of kindness can
completely chaiigo Iho course of a lifo.
A AVondcrAil Invention by an Omalin
Man General Notes.
In n smalll.c'abtn . , 'within a few feet of
the Union Pacitio tracks on South Fif
teenth street , a work is in progress which
if it oven in part realized the hopes of
its designer w\H \ revolutionize the present
methods of railroading and bring a great
elemental change into practical me
In this house lives David C. Rush , an
ngcd man , widely known from years of
residence in this city , and in times past a
skillful carpenter and joiner. He is now
crippled and far advanced in years , con-
lined almost nltpgother in doors. lu an
swer to his invitation n reporter called
upon 1dm yesterday. Hush i.s not rich.
nnd although he owns his dwelling and
the little plot of ground it htands upon ,
ly grace of 'ilia vnion Pacitio , bis wife , a
heroic little woman , lias had much of the
family's support , upon her shoulders.
For the past year the old gentle
man has been engaged upon the task ,
reference to which opened this writing.
The results of bin labors stand to-day in
[ several crude mrtdels. Ho luis iluvised a
'locomotive With the triple motive power
of steam , hydraulics and coal oil. The
engine Is equipped with an extension
brake , alarm whistles , converging head
lights , and a lookout turret surmounting
thu cab. The train which the locomotive
is to draw i.s not less unique than this
jilcco of machinery. Thopnssongerooach
IH u radical departure from the present
ndopted stylo. Instead of being the
standard length , | t la ono hundred feet
long and supported upon thrco trucks ,
ouo nt eaeh 'ou'd and another under the
center. F.aoh ( truck has three wheels.
nnd by their peculiar construction nnd
appliances are calculated to hold ( ho
track at thu highest attainable rate of
speed. The center truck * uro constructed
in a sliding plato. and movu
liack nnd forth nt right angles
to the trend of the car. Thu iitllitvof
finch a device is found in rounding
curves , when the truck ) will spring out
and hold the rails , so that at a spued of
lifty miles an hour the sharpest curve
can bo taken lit safety without thu danger
of "whipping on" . "
The old go itldman has at the snmo
timu conceivod-tv patent pump and steam
motor , which can bo cheaply constructed ,
nnd being run by a common steve is
ndapted to household purposes.
Several of tiio olllcial.s of the mechani
cal departments of both the Union Pa
cific and Mnrlington & Missouri have in
spected Mr. Rujjh's locomotive and oar
mid have encouraged him to proceed
With his work. IIo will shortly have his
models completed and will without dllli-

) or diem , also enacted a peculiar law.
1'he ollico of jury commissioner was ere-
ited , and his functions and methods of
mieodnrc peremptorily declared. Dr.
i'ildcn is thu jury commissioner of this
court , nnd under the laws , he ,
vith clerk Frank , selected from
ho state directories , from his
icquaintanco anil from other sources ,
100 names These arc written on strips
of paper , put into a bat and drawn , every
illernato name being doomed to jury
ervico. By this means no blocked jury
can bo imposed on thu court , but also by
bis means it occurs that the ignorant
selections are not of.the best ot prime
character. Ouee , a ic\v years ago , the
ury commissioner at Lincoln , made up
i draw from the state poll books and
ipon summoning the jury found that
, wo were tax-paying widows , ono had

uncos and half the rest were drunk or
dead. The prcsont jury , however , deems
o bo fortunately selected BO far as its
numbers arc known.
Sallcd Their Playmata.
A sorrowful looking youngster , his
lead bound up with linen , sat on the
) ench in police court yesterday , with
lis father , waiting to get the car of the
udgc. It appears from the story told by
ho boy. ( whoso name is Willie Abshur
xnd who is a son of T. G. Abshur , Nine-
ecnth nnd Cabtcllar streets , ) that ho was
issaulted and stabbed by bis playmates
Thursday evening , near the Castellar
treet school. Hosa3'3 that the janitor of
hat school had given him some kindling
ind ho was wheeling it homo in a barrow
vhen ho was stopped by a gang of four
or live boys , who demanded that ho
should turn the wood 9vur to them. This
10 very naturally declined to do , nnd the
young highwaymen then pounced
il > on him lie says , and assaulted him in
; ricvous manner , kicking and beating
limabout the body and faec. Not con-
out with this , ono of the boys. Joe Sny-
lor , ho says , produced a long knife from
lis coat sleeve and stabbed him in the
lead , producing a cut two inches or so
eng and about an inch deep. Medical
is iitnnco was summoned , and his
vouuds , though bleeding profusoly.were
found not to bo of a serious character.
A warrant has been issued for the ar-
e&tof thu alleged assailant , Su.ydor , and
ds accomplice * . None of the boys arc
over M or ID years of ago.

That man whoso heart doe.snofc | soft , en
nt the thought of buckwheat i-ukos Is .In-
c.ipnblo of enjoying : life to its fullest t-x-
lent. Winter bus many pleasures ( fiat
belong exclusively Ioilse1fleighridiiig ,
skating and coasting ; but to Iho nvcrngo
mortal there nro few things more pleas
ing on n frosty morning limn a plate of
steaming hot buckwheat cakes a feast
lit for ( ho gods. The prospect , ot pan
cakes to coino docs much to ajllay thd
dread of the approach of a cold' ' winter.
It may tiol. bo out of place to give a
few points regarding this favorite of Iho
breakfast table who the producers arc
nnd who tlio ronMimer.s. Americans nro
the only peoplu who know the full value
of buokwlieal , so called from the German
btiehwelzen or beeehwhoat , on account
of its Hose resemblance to the. beechnut.
The Knpllwh speak of this grain ns
being very good for poultry and thht
it i.s used for food by thu AiiHTlcnius and
Hindoos. It is UMM ! to some extent for1
human food In the northern countries of
Europe , and forms a portion of the
rations of the Russian soldiers ; but they
have "no idea of preparing it properly.
Of all the grains In common use , it re
quires to bu the most skillfully milled , as
tlio hull contains certain properties not
tondueivo to good health , and must bo
entirely removed It is tirst run through ,
a scourer and blower , which removes all'
dust ami grit. U is then put through 1ho
huller , which takes oil' the outs'do cover'
ing ami leaves the pure white berry ,
which is then ground into Hour. The
most complete mills are in the ensl , es
pecially in New York , where the grain is
very extensively raised. The greater
portion of the Hour u ; ud in this Male had
to be shipped from the uabt , and owing tote
to the heavy -ailroad tarill's it was rather
an exncnsiv luxury. Of late Nebraska
has demonstrated her ability to raise
buckwheat equal to any fitato in
the country , nnd the Omaha
mill has ueen turning it into
a line grade of Hour. It is intended
to increase the plant of the mill next
year to meet the increasing de
mand for Hour and to uoiisumo
the increased supply of gram.- The man
ufacture of ready raised buckwheat is
carried on extensively in Omaha. This
grade of Hour is a modern invention and
consists merely of thu best grade con
taining ( Improper proportion of leavening
properties so that the addition of water
makes it ready for immediate use. Its
advantage over the regular grades lies
in the labor saved in preparing it for the
tab e. All lovers of the festive cake will
rejoice at the inercaso in the. homo pro
duction of the grain and Hour , and bid
the good work go on until it is as plenty
and cheap or even cheaper than in the
east. _
An Oniccr Given the Slip ,
Oflicur Murphy , whoso b"at is on Thir
teenth street , heard loud and angry
voices issuing from a disreputable house
kept by a woman named Bates about
11:30 : o'clock night. Ho proceeded
to investigate , and , in company with
Frank Klell'ner , a block watchman , went
to the house. There they found two men
and a female indulging in a high oldj
time. Murphy took the two men in
charge , and started with them for the po- '
liee station , leaving Ivlcfliicr to care for"
the woman until ho could return. When
the policeman reached Farnam street
with bis prisoners , ono of them suddenly
made a spring and toro himself loose
from the clutches of" the olh'cor
and ran. ' At tho" same time the
other man cndeav6red to escape ,
ami Murphy concluding that a
bird in the hand was worth two on the
run , let the first one go. giving his whole
attention to retaining the other. He suc
ceeded in marching his prisoner to police
headquarters , where bo was locked up
for the night. Ho gave his name as Mike
Murphy , then returned to the Bates
lioitM' for the woman , but she had suc
ceeded in making her escape. It seems
that the man who succeeded in breaking
away from Murphy bad a horse and
buggy near the house where he was ar
rested , and. while KlefTner was watching
the girl he suddenly dashed up , untied
his horse nnd jumped into the buggy.
Klcll'ucr endeavored to intercept
him , but the man succeeded in
getting away. The girl took advantage
of her guardian's absence , and she , too ,
disappeared through Iho back door of the
house and left for parts unknown. Later
at night Murphy saw his escaped pris
oner driving along Fourteenth street and
made a rush for him. The fellow , how
ever , did not propose to bo caught , and ,
whipping his horse into a run , disap
peared uj | St. Mary's avcuuo. As ho is
known , his capture will probably bo ef
fected in due course of tune ,
Tlio Gas Lamps.
A reporter for the BEE met Gas Inspec
tor Gilbert yesterday and askeil about
the proposed lettering of Iho street lamps
so as to show the name of the streets.
"The report I made to the city council
the other " ho said "
night , , substantially
covers the ground. I found that the let
tered bands which are to bo placed about
the street lamps could not bo made at
less expense than -15 cents a pieeo. It
was at first thought that the lamps could
each bo supplied with Iho lettered bands
for about In cents each , but I have since
discovered that some of the painters
would charge that sum for palnting.alono.
The matter has been . 'ofcrred to a committee -
mitteo nnd 1 can do nothing until they
report. "
Mr. Gilbert said that the quality of
this gas manufactured was but little bet
ter limn It used to bo. The cold weather
had ateiidcnoy to relieve the water of
some of the noxious vapors and this no-
counted for a Might change for the bolter
in the quality of yas.

A largo audience , comprising ladies" ex
tensively , greeted the McGlbony family
at the opera hou e night. The pro
gramme is musical , although of a con-
curt character , nnd very excellent. The
children aio thoroughly trained in their
parts , and are certainly musical prod
igies. In fuel the whole family is a re
markable one. But it is doubtful whether
the pleasures of the performance will
compensate ono for the annoyance suf
fered from the pert and forward children
who , throughout the evening , in the
niiiKt of exercises which command eloso
attention , race up and down the house ,
slammiuy the proseeiiium doors , and in
clearly audible tones request pur
chases of the family portraits. That
kind of small trade is at best worthy only
of dime museum "freaks , " nnd should
not bu toleraled nor encouraged. But
when aggravated by the noise of a pack
of scampering brat.s it becomes abso
lutely execrable.

Needs a Pecuniary Salvo.
.Tames H. O'Neill commenced a suit in
district court yesterday claiming $ . \030
damages from his former 'employer ,
Charles S. Iliggins. From thu petition
tiled in the case it would appear that
O'Neill was an employe of Mr. Higgiiis
up to October 10 , when , as alleged , ho
was arrested at the instance of that gen
tleman , on a charge of stealing napkins
from the establishment. This ehargo
was supplemented by the additional one
that ho was a suspicious person. Ho lay
for two days in jail without hearing ,
when ho was takon. before Judge Sten-
berg and upon examination discharged.
Mr. O'Neill's character and feelings have
been so hurt by the transaction that h' )
thinks about $ .1,000 will be the correct
thing in the way of a "mollilior. "
