She attendance at the Exposition build
ing last night differed in no material
manner from that of the preceding night.
It was large , enthusiastic and devotional.
Among those present were the following
gentlemen from abroad : Hov. Walter
Williams , Dr. 0. L. Paine and Mr. Thos.
Hall , of Lincoln. The uxvrciscs of
the evening consisted in singing selec
tions from the hymnal , in which the aud
ience heartily took part , llov , Mr. Sin
clair , of Columbus , offered the opening
prayer. "Half Has Not Ucon Told" was
then feelingly sung by the audience. This
Was followed by the announcements usu
ally mivJe. after which collection was
taken up. Requests for prayer wore then
announced , one of which was that of a
wife in this city foi tidings
of her husband , who is somewhere
out west and from whom no tidings have
been received in the last four yours.
Prayer for those for whom was
made then took place , and was led by the
Hov. Mr. Pliolps , presiding elder of the
Methodist church hi this district. The
Kuv. Mr. Hitler then spoke , and referred
to the remark of a gentleman who had
attended the afternoon exercises , who
stated that tlio revival services which
were now being held had never been
cqalled at any time in Omaha. It was an
evidence of a Chvistmn awakening among
the people , which was not only gratify-
intr , but also cncoutnging to the people.
At the close of Mr. .Hitler's remark's , the
doxologv was sung and the audience dis
COOIIB In tlio Ring.
The success which attended the late
light between Smith , the colored pugilist
of this city , mid "Pomp" Hroiuly , tlio
Ktlnopian bruiser trom the Pacific coast ,
has encouraged the Caucasian backers of
the former to look toward a , fistic en
counter between the latter and another
colored man , who has recently come to
this city from abroad. Ho is popularly
known as "Coon llarvoy. " He is well
built and is said to possess extraordinary
hkill with his lists and powers of endur
ance. His presence became known
shortly after uis arrival hero , and , hinco
that time , ho has been distinguishing in
an amateur manner in the manly art of
self-defense. lie was immediately inter
viewed by a number of reporters
as well as the sporting fra
ternity. Ho has been induced
to meet Hroady. To-day a number of ad
mirers of both the "unknown" and Mr.
Hroady , will endeavor to obtain a view of
the pmo-figlitor. Where the meeting re
ferred to is to ho held , cannot now bo
mentioned. Friends of both parties will
meet to-day and agree upon terms. The
place where the light will take place will
then bo determined upon also.
Looking Tor Itovonijc.
Frank Shannon was some time ago
banished frcm this city because of his
frequent arrest and unlawful conduct.
Shortly after hta departure ho wrote a
series of threatening letters to DulY
Grcon , now Union Pacific police oilicer
at the union depot. Yesterday , Shannon
stepped oil'a train at this point and was
immediately arrested by tnu officer men
tioned. Ho was asked what he proposed
to do with the letters bo is reported to
have written touching matters of private
importance. Shannon's hand immedi
ately "rasped his revolver , as did also the
olliccr's. The latter was earlier than Shan
non and succeeded in taking the outlaw
into court where he will remain for a
few days.

of particular solemnity in both the
Episcopal and Catholic churches. In
both of these , services were held both in

Cnro < > ! ' Horses.
, JcfT\V. AVaynlok , of Cluiriton , Iowa ,
writes : Tlio care of horses is a theme of
vast importance. It is emphatically
worthy tlio careful consideration of every
one interested In the welfare of the horse.
Care will tell , nml that to n reasonable
degree. Then what about the methods
Unit have been put forth from tnno to
time , are they adapted to the circum
stances of the massed ? Methods almost
without limit , some without rcrfson , and
many with good , practical information
have boon given to the world concerning -
corning the care iiml management of
horses. Many of those methods and in
structions nro of good sound reasoning ,
and whenever tried , have proved practi
cal : uul beneficial. Hut at the snmo time
they were available onlv to a section of
individuals , namely : Those who have
plenty of money and abundant time for
experimental purposes.
Now , the average farmer ha1 ? neither n
surplus supply of money nor time to test
nml reap tlio good resulting trom such
methods , but necessarily nave meth
ods at least , practically adapted to his cir
cumstances , or else he has no business
with them at all. The farmer cannot ,
especially during the lirsl three or four
mouths of the larming season , allow his
learn a rosiHle of two or more hours after
giving them water before feeding , pre
paratory to the afternoon's work. Hut
then the instructions say , two hours or
more rest after feeding before work.
This consumes two much valuable time ,
which thu average farmer cannot afford
to lose. Hut he can the first thing of a
morning feed his team a bountiful sup
ply of hay a bucket full of water to the
horse is bust uefore giving hay. Allow
about one hour for eating nay , then feed
corn or oats , after which the team is well
prepared for the half day's work. A
liorsu if food is given first , or botli hay
and grain at the same time , will cat the
grain , and consequently little or no hay
during the allotted time.
Special care should be given to the
amount of water required for horses un
der tlio dill'erent circumstances for in
jurious results often accrue from an oversupply
supply of water , than is generally sup
posed ; while thu real cause of suelt results
is frequently attributed to something else ,
and yet the unsuspected custom contin.
uos , adding all the while to the number
of new victims. Hay , before grain of
any kind , morning , noon , and night ,
anil a reasonable resting spelt after the
noon's feeding , will give , if adhered to
any considerable length of time , satis
factorily results. Of course , a liberal
and vigorous use ot the curry comb and
brush n is promotivo of much good , and
should not by any means bo neglected.
Sonic Rules for .Milk Producers.
The Michigan dairymen's association
hold a meeting in lialaimix.oo about the
middle of February. Among other mat
ters they adopted the following rules for
the use of those who ship milk to cheese
factories or butter dairies :
First Cows must have an abundance
ot good , wholesome food , pure and not
too cold water , to which they can have
access at all times.
Second Cows must not be overheated
or unduly cxeitcd or worried at any time.
Third The udder and teats .should be
thoroughly cleaned before milking , by
washing it need be , and the teats should
not bo wet during tlio process of milk
Fourth Kindness nnd gentleness
should bo used at all times. Cows should
not bo excited by loud talk or other
Fifth Cows should be milked by the
same milker and as quickly as possible ,
and good pure water and salt placed in
easy access.
Sixth During cold weather cows
should be comfortably housed , ilicirstulls
well cleaned and littered , ami an abund
ance of good and not too cold water ac-
ce siblo.
Seventh Milk , if kept ever night ,
should bo placed in a lank surrounded by
cold water or ice.
Eighth- the milk is for butter or
cream for the creamery or market , cool
the creamer to about -10 or ' 15 degrees be
fore turning the milk into it. Put the
milk in tlio creamer as soon as drawn. It
should remain from 12 to 24 hours for
complete separation.
If tlio milk is for cheese , aerate it well ,
thoroughly stirring and cooling to 75 de
grees before starting to factory.
Milk should never bu allowed to stand
where it is subjected to foul odors of any
Nothing but bright , absolutely clean
tin pails and causshould boused in hand
ling milk.
Mill ; must never bo allowed to stand in
cans afterbcingreturncd to the farm , and
they should be thoroughly washed in
warm water ana then scalded with water
boiling hot , and thoroughly scoured with
salt at least twice a week. Soap , soda or
such alkalies should not be used to clean
cans or pails.
Improving tlio Farm.
Orange County Farmer : The best and
shortest way to improve n farm is to reduce -
duce tin1 stock , plow your fallows in win
ter so that the soil will bo warm and dry
and the sub-oil decomposed early in the
spring. Harrow well and then s'ow ten
or twelve quarts of grass seed to the aero
when you put in your outs. If all lake ,
your chance is good for obtaining from
'live to ten acres of oais ami a field seeded
down to grass. Then prepare as many
acres for rye sowing , provided your land
is not good enough lor wheat and the two
crops will give you nil the straw you need
and the corn field , with usual good luck ,
will produce enough to fat stock. At the
end of the sen.-on you will luivo to pro
duce from fifteen or twenty acres of land ,
represented in oats , corn and potatoes
ami as many acres sown with rye and
wheat. Keep ju t Plonk enough to eat
up the produce in grain nnd hay , and
alter gathering your no.\t year's cropof
hay and grain , covering wiy lifty nuroof
your farm of 100 acres , you may think of
adding as many cattle us your farm will
sustain without purchasing very heavily
of foreign supplies , By tlio end of the
fourth year you are ready to put in a
crop of wheat and save plowing up your
bottom meadow , yon have re-seeded the
whole farm and are now ready to en largo
your dairy and at the expiration of ton
yours your land ought to boin a condi-
lion to double your crops and the mini-
her of your cattlo. This is i rotation.
Tlio I'Vont lor of Draft llorso. IntorfiMH.
National Stockman and Farmer ; \Vcst-
orn farmers , nlivo to the their own inter *
csU und seeing the adaptability to the
country and kind of furmin" carried on
in their section of the United States , in
vested their money in anil took hold ot
Iho importation and breading of thu
heavy draft horses in such a manner that
it may be truthfully said that the "homo of
thu draft horso" is on western soil , and
that tlio eastern or older section of this
country may bo properly considered the
frontier of the draft horse interests.
This is true , notwithstanding the fact
thai s'cvurul of the largest importing and
breeding ostabliuonts jiro situated in
the eastern or middle sti"s. While im
porting and breeding cstablUmenls
attract thu attention of the public
more through advertisements and
other sources , it mu-t bo remembered tnut
the "rank and lilo , " the farmers who ruisu
the majority of all the horses produced
in this country , are the onus to look to
lor a correct idea in regard to the true
status of the matter. From this stand
point wo lind again the diflbrcnco in favor
pf our western fiirmurs. They scorned
to have roali/cd the fact at once that no
class of horses was lee good for them if
they could b& procured at anything like
reasonable prices,1 anil the result was that
these who. were jengtgcd : in introducing
the best imported horses i o-

ward with fonnmmdnblo seal , nnd were
successful In their vbuturcs with the ex-
coptionof but fo\y \ cases. Finding it moro
profitable than 'raising inferior horses ,
these same farmers , have increased their
operations instead of dlininNhini ; them ,
and now many ot our eastern dealers
lind customers among them more readily
than they do nearer /Some. /
Hints nmt .SMuROsllon1 ? .
Hogs give return's so quickly flint even
if only a small profit is made on each lot
these profits can bu made quickly. Hogs
multiply rapidly , and hence less capital
is required lor beginners than for other
The heifer should be trained from her
birth , says the Stockman , to stand , leader
or allow any one to handle her. A calf
treated in this manner will makoagonllo
and a valuable cow , onu that will not
kick , and which will be easily and moro
conveniently milked.
All the hmtorlal that can bo returned
to tlio farm without loss is simply a sav
ing of the same for another season , and
as the manure may again bo converted
into plant food the placing of it on the
sod is to simply use raw material .tor
manufacturing Into salable crops.
The problem of farming consists in
making the soil increasingly fertile.
Manure is the farmers' savings bank , and
if moro of them would have largo heaps
of it every spring to spread upon their
lands , instead of money at interest they
would prosper hotter in the end.
Clover growth is helped by llmo and

Avlth which the fanner can light hard

soil , and the soil will deteriorate rapidly
in quality from such treatment besides.
Whenever rhubarb throws out a great
many leaves and tno stalks are sninllnnd
worthless , the roots should bo dug up
and transplanted , dividing them so that
only one thrifty bud is left to each picco

the spring , as soon as the newly formed
buds are ready to push through the soil.
If an iron wire bo twisted during or
soon after thu passage of a voltaic cur
rent through it the wire becomes mag
netic. When the wire is twisted in the
manner of a right hand screw , the point
at which the current enters becomes a
south polo ; in the opposite case it be
comes a north polo. If during the passage -
sago of the current the wire becomes
twisted in different directions , tlio po
larity changes with tlio direction of the
twist. i
Geese can be fftWencd cheaply , as they
will eagerly consifincChoppcd : turnips or
any other kind of cheap material at this
season ; but to get thorn very fat they
should have corn also. A should
not bo too fat , as i such is objectionable ,
but they should be kupt fat enough to
present an excellent market appearance.
The young gceso tliatfhavonol completed
their growth , however , cannot bo fed too
liberally , as they wfjll not become ex

It may not bo necessary and j'et not
amiss to urge farmers to sow or drill a
good supply of sweet qorn to cut up and
iced to milch ( ! ows , diiVing the month of
August , when pasture's dry up , or par

such corn is a wholesome and profitable

How to make a cheap and ample gate
in a wire fence is thus described in the
( ieriniintpwn Telegraph : The fence is
made as if no gate wore thought of , and
then the wires are all tightly stapled to
the two gate posts. After this a light
post is placed close to one of the gate
posts , and to this every wire is stapled ,
after which they are clipped between this
and tiic gate post , and tlio gate is then
read } ' to swing , tlio wires being hinges
themselves. Only a 'fastening is required
to kooi ) the loose post in place , and a gate
is ready for use that will answer very
well where it is only occasionally used.
Often has it been known of a cow eat
ing poisonous substances without injury
to herself , says the Farmers' Magazine ,
but her milk was impregnated with the
poison or diseased germs , injuring Hie
human consumer. Milk is much moro
tenacious in receiving impurities than
water , as it seems , nccorimii ! to some
writers , that the impurities .of tlio ani
mal's system are unloaded into the lac
teal ducts nnd pass oil' into the milk pail ,
impregnate the system oi the consumer ;
and for this reason the cow should not be
compelled to breath foul air in the stables ,
or use food or drink which will injury
the milk

Work on the government building Is
progressing. Already the stone work is
thirty-three foot above the ground with
most of the- brick work completed as far
as the building has gone.
The height of the basement is eighteen
feet , while the frst story is sixteen feet
and the second thirteen feet and six
inches. Tlio third floor is ( o bo fifteen
feet and an attic seventeen feet high. The
tower la to bo sixty feet above the roof ,
thirty-six feet of which will bo of stone.
The entire height of the structure will bo
about HO feet.
O. J , King , superintendent of the work
for Contractor Rice , yesterday told a
Bur. man that the stone work
would no doubt bo completed
before the time allowed by the contract ,
which is August lth next , and that the
brick work must bu completed inside of a
month later.
0. E. Bell , who is assistant to Mr.
Muxon , the government , superintendent
of the grounds , and Mr. King , both think
the building will be completed by Decem
ber , 1S37 , notwithstanding the largo
amount of work to bo done.
The faot that the building is being
built by Undo Sam will no doubt cause
seine delay in completing It , as Uncle
Sam uses plenty of red tape iu the con
struction of his buildings.
A Mute Drowned.
One of the students of tlio deaf and

day forenoon ho went down to the creek ,
near the bridge , in company with n
smaller pupil , and taking oil' his clothes
started to take a bath. As he approached
the edge of the bank he slipped , and
fall into a deep hole in the creek. His
little companion was badly frightened.
nnd hurried oh" to thu institution and did
not report the accident until afternoon.
The boy being missed from his classes in
quiry was made us to his whereabouts ,
und at last the little fellow managed to
explain that ho was down by the creek.
On going there his clothes were found on
the bank , nnd murks were left showing
where ho had slipped. A search was
made for the body , but up to a late hour
last evening it had not been found.

as soon as the banks opened , The men
were described to Captain Anderson , of

the hunt for them until yesterday after
noon , when ho arrested them. They
gave their names as James 11. Biesenand
