Wednesday morning as the driver of
Kendall & Smith's delivery wngon , was
jogging nlong N street , "ho felt a shiver ,
ami then a shock , " and looking up found
that his horse had suddeiily dropped out
of sight. Ho pinched himself to makosuro
that ho WM awaKe , ami then hcgan to
prospect for the missing equine. The
wagon was standing in the mud nearly
hub deep , and between the shafts was an
ugly looking hole , into which part of the
harness was hanging. Peering down
from his scat Iho driver found that the
sewer roof hud caved in , and that the
horse had dropped into the trench , his
weight breaking the harness , and letting
him free from the wagon , Down at the
bottom of thu sewer , up to his knocs in
fihifli , .stood the horse , meekly wonder
ing how ho came there , and when and
how ho was going to get out. The latter
uart of the conundrum fcccincii to trouble
the driver alsoi for ho tried numberless
bchomes , in his mind , without success.
At last aomo one suggested that ho get
down In the sewer himself and load the
horse through It to an opening about two
blocks below where they would llml an
easy exit. It was not a pleasant job , bat
it bad to be done , and after a walk through
the mud in abysmal darkness. Tin ;
opening was reached , and the animal led

Night Watchman Kovsor reported to

A DELAYHD VOLUME.
The nineteenth session of the Nebraska
legislature was closed nearly fourteen
months ago , yet the record of the doings
of the lower house is just ready for dis
tribution. The delay is said to have bi-cn
caused by a dispute between James F.
Xediker , the chief clerk , and his assist
ant , Frank II. Wilson , us to which should
do the work of preparing the copy , proof
reading , indexing , etc. , for which an ap
propriation of $1.200 was made , in addi
tion to their regular salary of $0 per day.
Alter u long tussle the printer finally
succeeded in getting the job finished , and
the representatives who served in the
session of 1885 can get the fifteen copies
to which each man is entitled , by calling
on the state authorities. The book con
tains 1014 pages , and is a fair companion
volume for the Senate Journal , which
was issued many months'ago.

THE ROMANCE OF GOLD.
Fate of the Men Who Discovered Some
Great American Mlnex.
Fort Keogii ( M. T. ) Letter : The super
stitious belief is an old ono that unless
the discoverer of a camp moots an un
timely or bloody end his find will never
amount to anything ; and this seems to
bo berne out by the facts , since nearly
all the discoverers of the great gold mines
in the United States , witn but tow excep
tions , have , as the saying goes , "died
with their boots on. " Of thirty-eight
booming towns in early days , the loca
tors of twelve were killed by bullet , tlireo'
were buried in their creations by cavo-
ins , and the rest drifted away with the
tide of immigration , have become lost in
oblivion , or died and were buried in pau
pers'graves. George II. Fryerfrom whom
the celebrated "Fryor Hill , " of Loadvillo
derives its name , died at Denver not long
ago from an overdose of morphine admin
istered by liis own hand. Two years pre
vious to his death wari worth a million or

Near the wild spot where twelve years

tree in a frontier mining town in Cali

slfcops his last sleen ; Kelso Austin was
killed and buried in Echo county , Neva

Lloyd Magruder , while conducting a
number of wagons loaded with treasure
from Virginia City to the nearest rail
road , was murderedi and robbed by his
teamsters , who were Plummor's outlaws
in disguise. George Hankinson and
Henry Plummor were hauled no by the
vigilantes and strung tip without the
delay and formality ot a trial. Plnmmor
was a great rascal. In the early days of
the mining caraws of Montana Plnmmcr
was elected sheriff of the camp about
Virginia City. Ho was the first locator
of the rich ground about Virginia City ,
but thought ho could make moro money ,
and quicker , too , by taking what was
already mined than by laboring in the
gulch day after day and getting it by
hard , honest toil. But he was tripped

ble coward , on a gallows of his own con

A correspondent of the Baltimore Sun
writes : Tlio ceremonies at Montgomery ,

sions made by Gen. John B. Gordon in
his oration there to the imprisonment of
Mr. Davis at Fortress Monroe in 180. " ) , revives -
vivos some incidents rarely now men
tioned , but , neverloss , of rare historical
interest , and belonging to both , the period
and the subject , they may now bo truth
An eye witness , encased there in the
ordnance department nt the fortress , now
a resident and attached to the pollen de
partment of Baltimore , says that when
Mr. Davis landed from the gun-boat on
tlio government wharf , the guard that
received him kept back tlio lookers-on tea
a considerable distance while they conducted -
ducted the prisoner to the interior of the
fortification and to thu casemate assigned
for Ills incarceration. Soon after ho was
lodgml ttiere the olllcer of the day called
and advised him that orders had been re
ceived from Washington to plnoe
him in irons , and asked him to
submit by lying prostrate on the
cot when within the casement. Mr. Davis ,
with some vehemence , objected , anil
asked that the order .should bo read to
him. This was done , and ho .still refused ,
and declared that the manacle bhonld
only bo placed on him by forco. The I
blacksmith was then present with leg
irons , ami a soldier being so ordered , i
placed his musket across the breast of I
the prisoner , pressed him to and then
down on the cot. While held in that po
sition the smith rived the irons on the
ankles , and the prisoner , thus soeured ,
was locked in the casemato. A day or .so
following orders came from Washington
to remove the manacles , and soon atlur-
ward to opc'i the door , and finally to al
low Mr. Davis to excrelsn himself by
limited walks within the grounds. The
order to Iron was issued , it was said , by
Secretary Stanton , and the preparation
to do so were all made prior to the ar
rival of the gunboat. President Johnson

The UAUSO of ttio Cyclone.
Koclicster ( N. Y. ) Democrat : The re
sults following the advent of the solar
disturbance of the 14th were far moro
disastrous than expected. Wo spoke
yesterday of the barometric depri-hsion
lingering in the northwest and expected
that the solar llames pf the disturbance
would hasten it eastward with high tem
perature and electric storms. But it seems
that as the extended factilar disturbance
just in advance of the sun spot came to
bear on our atmosphere tornadoes devel
oped immediately in the depression , with
the most disastrons results to throe pros
perous towns of Minnesota , two towns in
Iowa and one in Dakota. In Sauk Hap-
ids and St. Cloud the destruction of prop
erty and loss of life were appalling. The
tornadoes scorned to have a partiality for
towns. No such destruction lias opcurrod
since six southern states wore visited the
1'Jth ' of February , 1881. On that day
over a hundred people were killed and
the skv was of a lurid hue at midnight.
The facular disturbance Justin adyanco
of the sun spot which came by the sun's
rotation Wednesday especially attracted
the attention of Dr. Vocdor of Lyons ,
who reported it by postal card Wednes
day afternoon. As observed by us Thurs
day morning , the disturbance was of the
most remarkable character. What
fiooniod like a vast billow of intensely
white flame with its summit far above the
absorbing vapors near the photosphere ,
swayed and twisted and changed form
very rapidly. At times It was almost ob
scured by cloud-like masses. This facu
lar flame must have been 00,000 miles
long , and added considerably to the sun's
heat for a timo. It also electrified our
atmosphere , as was evidenced by an
aurora between 0 and 10 o'clock Wednes
day night which was very striking , con
sidering the brightness of the moonlight
The electrical displays In the northwest
were also very intonse.and the electric dis
charges are probably responsible for the
plowing up of the earth by the tornado at
St. Cloud. A tornado is probably noth
ing but tlio pasugeof an immense volume ,
so to speak , of eleotricity from the upper
atmosplioro to the earth , forming a vertex -
tex , with a practical .suspension ofgravity
for the time being.

Philadelphia llccord : The misery o

lircvrntion of physiclal wcll-bolng. No
disease carries oft' so many victims as
consumption , and no avoidable mental
allllution contributes so much to the
harassment of llfo as the worry of debts
contructnd in excess of ability to pay.
The insane hospitals are full of crazy
debtors , and thousands every year rid
tlioiLsclvos of an nnondurablo weight of
liability by running unprepared to their
The writer of these papers , morn
especially intended for tlio purusal of
women , lists already preached a sermon
from the text of "ray as you go. " But
the way In which you go is important.
You may go so fast that outgo exceeds
income , and every year capital is en
croached upon until your gait is reduced
to ono of uncomfortable slowness. Aa

of' the world it is important that they
should understand the limitations within
widen they may proceed safely To
persons so eomfortauly situated that they
own pald-for houses to live in , but nro
dependent upon a certain lixcd income ,
or certain wage-earning capacity it
should bo an oxtraotdinory inducement
indeed which would justify them in in
curring debts beyond the immudiato
means of payment. Every debt pulls
away from the security of the homo and
of the homo comfort that grows out of
its possession. Those who do not own
their homes , but expect to , must miiko
whatever dculal is necessary every year
to lay by something toward the accom
plishment ot the desired end. They
must do more than pay as they go ; they
must not go quite so fast as they are able
The liousowlfo can , if she chooses , ad
just herself to the circumstances witli the
greatest precision. Once having ascer
tained the earning power of her family
she can adjust the pay department to
necessary outgo as readily as the horsepower -
power of an engine is adapted to the
work required of it. Hut there must bo
method. The true method is to keen nn
accurate account of expenditure. Lven
a running account mav bo kept within
proper bounds by the housekeeper who
makes it a point every day to know how
far and fast the account runs. It is a
thousand times bettor to only buy what
you can pay for out of cash in hand. But
the cash is not always in hand. The
blacksmith's wages are sometimes ropro-
rented by his book accounts for work
( Ioiu > and not paid for. The farmer's
cash may for a tnno Ho in his unfathered
crops or his unfattoncd oxen. But the
running account should never bo per
mitted to go beyond the surety of ac
quittal. The blacksmith's bill at the
store should never bo permitted to ex
ceed the amount ho may certainly expect
from solvent dobtros , and the farmer
should never oat up his corn before it
ripens. The housewife who keeps as
close and conscientious knowledge of
what she buys and does not pay for as
what she buys and pays for within the
limit of ability has adopted a rule , not of
absolute safety , but of near approach to it.
There has been a wonderful inoroaso
in latter years in creature comforts
Every honest weaver and shoemaker or
other craftsman in Philadelphia can till
his house witli luxuries and array his
wife and daughters in fabrics mote come
ly and gorgeous than Kichard III or
Henry Vfll , or any other of our savage
ance.stry in the ndddlo ages , could pos
sibly procure for himself or those about
him. But with case of living and case
of getting has como a certain diminution
of thrift. One cannot go back to the
private memoranda of the business trans
actions of George and Martha Washing
ton , John Adams and his wifo. How
careful the father of his country was
about his shillings. Or oven to como later
down , when Attorney General Marcy , of
the state of New York , debited the com
mon wealth witli 50 cents , which the tailor
charged him for patching the seat ot his
breeches , worn out in staging across the
country in his professional capacity. His
expense account went oven to the charges
for his rum and thu blacking of his shoes.
But there was not a farthing too much or
too little. He did not ride on a tree pass
and clmrgo the state witli mileage.
