fmoit THE nr.R's raxoor.v ntmr.AUI.
Many n rich mlno of newa Is often
opened unexpectedly by tlio reporter
who digs among the dry and musty
CHI records of tlio district court. In the vnult
in Ulcrk Sixer's ofllco nvo documents
that , put In print and properly explained ,
would conjure up frightful ghosts of the
foigotten past , and , in the Innguagoof
tlm baul of Avon , "cnuse each particular
hair to stand on end" on tlio heads of
those diicolly interested. Fortunately
for the peaces of mind of many people , yo
ricribo is gener.illy too busy with the live
tiflalrs of tlio day , and lee jealous of the
mopriotioa , to give time or attention to
the dishing up of such doses. Once in
awhile , however , some case- freshly lllcd
will force itself on his notice , find chal
lenge a comparison with similar litlga-
lieu of another date. Tlioro is a lively
instance of this in tlio notion brought by
Hon. J. It. Wobstcr , of this city , to com-
1 > ot Air. Charles E. Lewis and the latler's
attorneys , Grant & Grant , to pay him
$3r,03 for forcing the payment of defaulted -
faulted interest on certain Lancaster
county lioiuls , and un acknowledgment
by the commissioners of tlio validity of
( ho securities. Air. Webster's claim , as
pel forth in his petition , is that Lewis is
tlio owner of $07,000 in Midland I'ncillc
bonds , the locality of which Imd been at
tacked by the county , and payment
ot the 10 per cunt annual Intel cat refused.
The principal and interest at tlio time
suit was begun amounted to nearly $80-
000. To collect it Mr. Lewis engaged
Giant & Grant of Davenport , Iowa , agree
ing to pay them , if successful , a con
tingent fco of 10 per cent of the whole-
num. Grant & Grant in turn retained
Mr. Webster to conduct the case , for 40
per cent of tlio 10 per cent. The matter
was tinally compromised the coinmis-
fiioncrs consenting to pay Mr. Lewis'
claim , and he agreeing to accept interest
nt tlio rate of 01 per cent for the rest of
the time the bonds have to run. This
was n virtual victory for the plaintiii'
ho got all ho demanded in his action at
l.iw , and Mr. Webster of cour.se presented
his bill for services under the contract
with Grant & Grant To his surprise
v they refused to pay , and ho brought tlio
suit mentioned. This would bo all right
were it not for tlio fact that this same at
torney has proceedings now pending in
the state supreme court for a mandamus
to compel tliucommivsioners of Lancaster
county to pay his bill of $14.735 for suc
cessfully contesting the payment of in
terest on these same bonds. It would bo
u ludicrous , but rather expensive joke , if
Mr. Webster should obtain his mandamus
and force the payment by the county
of his bill for icsibting tlio
payment of the 10 per cent
interest on these Midland Pacific bonds ,
and then get a judgment against Mr.
Lewis for 111,270.42. for forcing payment
by the county of the full 10 per cent in-
tuieston the bonds up to Apt 111 , 1880.
Such a performance in legal athletics
would dwarf the great circus act of riding
six horses baieback.
AN OLD TIME CIIAHACTEK.
Hon. J. N. Carlisle , of Colorado , the
notca railroad builder , who , with General
Jank Casement , of Ohio , has the contract
for constructing the Missouri Pacific ex ;
tension from Weeping Water to Lincoln ,
has been a gncst at the Commercial for a
few days , chatting over with Landlord
Kitchen the incidents of thpii early life in
Now Mexico. Last evening Mr. Car
lisle , for tlio amusement of a select few ,
recited a number of stories about the
noted Zan Hinckloy , that for pure , native
wit and humor rival anything over pub
lished in the alleged comic papers
witli which the country is
flooded. Hinckley was a rough diamond
mend who , in tlio early days when
Carlisle was freighting across the plains ,
and Kitchen was runningaliotolatSanta
Fo , lived away up in the Greenhorn ter
ritory in Colorado , in a poverty-stricken
hovel that ho dignified with tlio name of
ranch , lie was probably the la/.iest man
in the west , but as honest and true as the
best. One day in returning from Santa
Fo , whore ho bad boon cleaned out at
poker , ho stopped at the ranch of a friend
about 200 miles from his home. Ho liad
no horse , and kept lus mind pretty busy
trying to hatch some plan by which ho
could get a ride. At dinner ho noticed
there \\oro no potatoes on the table , and
look his host severely to task for the
shortage. Potatoes were a great luxury
in that country'then , and the ranchman
was not ashamed to own that ho didn't
"What ; haven't got any potatoes ? " said
Hinckley. "That's too bad. Just send a
team up to my place , and I'll give you all
you want. "
The oiler was a good one , and the next
morning the ranchman btarted a man oft
with a four-mule team , and Hinckley had
a pleasant ride homo , 200 miles away.
When the man got ready to return
Hinckloy loaded the wngon up with dogs ,
nutting in all the worthless ours ho could
lind among his Mexican neighbors. The
diivnr protested , saying his employer
wauled potatoes , but Hinckley. who of
course never had a potato on Ids place ,
said ho knew butler , that it was pups ho
wanted. Three months later Ilinckluy
slopped at the much again , and the
owner inquired why he had sent all the
" 1 know lhat dorn fool driver was
making a mistake , " was his answer. "I
told him you wanted potatoes , but lie
eald it was pups he was after , and I lot
him have 'cm.1' '
Hinckloy's genius in gelling the ridn
homo without asking for it was appro
uiated by the ranchman and a hearty
laugh followed the explanation.
At another time Hinckley was at a
small hotel , and as the liouso was full
could not get a bed. Mr. Cailislo. who
was present , offered to share his shake
down witli him , but Hinckley snicl ho
could sleep well enough in u chair. After
the landlord had retired and th < house
was quiet , Ilinckluy , telling Carlisle lo
follow and he would hucnro a good room
took on"his boots and crawled up stairs
In tlio hallway liu jelled " 1'irol File ! " in
the top of his voice , and Iho lodgers came
tumbling out of their rooms , and made a
dash down stairs , liy the time they
found Itiib a false alarm Hinckloy hai
pre-empted a comfoitable room , locket
the door , and was snoringso soundly thai
oven the huidloid'svigoious demand tha
ho vacata it at once went unheeded.
Ono night a freighting outfit stopped a
Hlnckley'a ' ranch indeed , everjbodj
made it a point to stop there , as much to
sue and talk with 'Ann as anything else
for the food and lodgings no had to oiler
were of thu most primitive sort. On the
night in question Ids ranch was destitute
of anything like a bed , and his \isitor.s
viewing the bare cartli lloor , wonderei
where they were to bunk. At last one
man vcntuiod to say that ho was ready
to go to bed.
'Got any blankets ? " queried Zan. amen
on receiving a negative reply ho pointed
out a biiol in the corner , saying "You cat
bleep thoio. " This was continued , even
man without blankets being sent to bunk
i on thu bare ground , until he struck one
ohnw who , in nnswerto hla question , nnld :
' 'Why , yoa. Jlr. Hinckloy , 1'vo got two
olnnkuts and two buffalo robes. "
" ( Jed bless you , .young follow , you can
sloop with me , " was the immediate reply.

nocent cause of considerable trouble on
car No. 24 on Ninth street yesterday
The nickel , when dropped into the box ,
covered a ten cent piece which had been
passed up bv a gentleman to pay the faro
of two Indies in the car. The driver rang
the fare boll several times nnd accused
the gentleman of hav Ing held out tlio
dime ana put a nickel in the box for the
two faros. This angered tlio passenger
nnd ho called the driver a shallow patud
Swede. The driver retorted by calling
this passenger an unconverted thief. The
ladies trembled and guvo exclamations
of fear , while the rcpoitur onlv smiled
and waited for the culmination of tlio
trouble. It came when the car stopped
on Tenth street. The irate passenger
wont around to the front end of the car
and shook his fist under the driver's noso.
The list canto in contact with an iion
grab hock hold in the hands of the driver ,
who yelled for the police. The nassongcrs

Which nil my soul nlnimcd ;

They woio not Imlt so waun and soft ,
So sweet as Lovo's llrst kiss.

THE WEAK AMD DEBILITATED.
Why Women Become Invalids.
( from the SL I'aul Flontar Trui. )
Tbo home lifa of woman bus its pen
alties. Their confinement and close ap
plication to household duties and the K.
dcntnry pursuits which are a part of their
duties , brine ; with them a tiain of evils
whose nnmo is legion. From her peculiar
organization , she is nioro sensitive than
the stronger sex more easily persuaded
nnd raoio ready in her belief of causes and
effects. Hence , for tbo thousand ilia
which flow from her position und habits ,
Bhc is prone to Uy ut once for relief to
drugs nnd nostrums. Besides , women are
not permitted tbo advantages men hsvo in
the use of proper preventives , and she Is
l ft a prey to quackery and bad advice.
In turn , cod liver oil , beef ten , iron , iier-
vlnes and notions arc token , which deranga
the stomach and cnfceblo the nerves ,
without possessing any food value , and
which iuciease the weaknesses of their
delicate organism. In the dovclopmont of
tbo special functions from inadequate
nutrition , tlio w nuted form is only a too
common sight. Under thcto conditions of
an Irregular and dteordcied system , the
married state Is entered into , and the
pangs of maternity are encountered. The
harmful effects of all kinds of drugs nnd
nostrums , which women would never take
if they knew what they contain , is a
prolific source of tbo ailments with ,
which they uro afflicted. A pure
stimulant Is often tiulispcnsiblo to their
malady nnd is highly recommended by
the most eminent'phjsiciuns The ques
tion has be ou heretofore , where to procure
on absolutely pure and unadulterated arti
cle , free from fusel oil anJ other poisonous
Ingredient ? , that could bo safely pi escribed
for their benefit. Eminent scientists and
chemists hnvo failed to find a trace of
fusel oil In Duff.v'a puio malt whiskey , nor
nny adulteration whatever , and hence it
baa not only become the standard of
purity , but n specific in medical practice.
For such diseases as dyspepsia , indiges
tion , heart burn , faints cud swoons , and
wasting maladies , to which delicate women
are prone , the highest medical authorities
give tfcls pure stimulant n preference , and
recommend its uee medicinally.
