THE HUE'S LINCOLN
The Omaha paper that is acting as a
* ort of protective association for Law and
Order Agent James published as one fact
to cause good clti/.eiiH to look with favor
upon .humus , that Mr. A. J. Sawyer , of
this city , the president of the Lincoln
Law and Order lengun , had written to
Omaha declaring that the counsel for
James h < ul investigated tlio charges and
that there was no truth in them and that
it was all a blackmailing scheme. This
article was reproduced in a local payer
here , and when Air. Chipmanthe gentle *
man who signed tlio complaint against
James , read it , ho walked up to the office
of Mr. Sawyer and demanded an explana
tion as to why lie was charged as being a
blackmailer. Mr. Sawyer replied with
alacrity , and produced from his copy
book the letter ho had written to Omaha
mid which proved the Omaha paper an
enormous fabricator. The lii'.i : repre
sentative called at Mr. Chipman'.H store
and received from him tlio above report
of Mr. Sawyer's htalement. Mr.
Chipman continued further to
say that ho had no relish
for any person calling Ir.m a blackmailer ,
and that he was ready and prepared to
prove oaeh and every allegation that ho
lias made concerning Agent James.
"And , " continued Mr. Chipman , "if I
have maligned any man , 1 have five
houses near tlio university , ten acres of
ground just inside the eity limits , nid my
business on O street from which they can
recover damages. "
There are a great many people in Lin
coln who know Mr. Chipman , and thov
tlo not know him as a blackmailer or
anything else oilier than a good square
eitr/on who believes in law and order
himself and who practices it , and the
efforts made to make J imies a persecuted
individual at the hands of Mr. Chipman
is tlie baldest and boldest exhibition of
gall. The fact that Agent James secured
rooms at Mr. Chipman's under an as-
.sumed name , and an assumed character
that made the woman consent to bo his
wife , is Mr. Chlpman's charge .that ho is
prepared to prove , and his motive in the
matter is to protect his house and his
homo. If Agent James is to clear himself ,
and if the Law and Order League in
Omaha want to believe him innocent they
do not want to do it under tlio impression
that Air. Chipman , the gentleman upon
whpso cpmpl.uht ho was arrested , is a
blackmailer. Neither do they wanttobe-
lieve that Mr. Chipman's case was
brought because of the work James is
doing in Lincoln , or anything of that

habeas corpus case in which an effort is
being made to secure the release of one
Frank Skinner , who is in jail under

San Frauciieo Examiner : Admiral
Schufcldt of the United States navy ad
dressed the executive committee of tlio
chamber of comr.icrco on the subject of
the Panama canal and the Tehuantopcc
railroad for transporting ships overland.
Introductory remarks wore made by
Hugli Craig. The admiral in his talk
said tlmt as far as lie could observe not
one-tenth of the work on the Panama
canal had as yet _ been completed , and
much of that which is now considered
finished will have to bo done over again ,
One year ago the canal was eleven feet
deep. From an inspection there appears
to be progress , but the speaker dm not
think that the magnitude of the under
taking was generally appreciated. The
Tehuantnpcc route would involve as much
work as the Panama , but as a military
nnd commercial measure the former
would bo of the greatest advantage to the
United Slates. It would require a largo
navy to hold the Panama Canal , but by
the new Mexican railroad 00,000 men
could bo placed at Tchuantepoc within
ten days. The Panama and Nicaragua
canals \vero objectionable because they
would injure the commerce of the coun
try. San Francisco would lose its Mexi
can and South American trade. The ad
miral strongly advocated defenses on
tins coast , as it could not be supplied
with a navy in time in case of war. It
was understood that Mexico would grant
the privilege of transporting men-of-war
ever Tcliuaittepcc railroad if necessary.
Ho believed that tlio French would com
plete the latter route , and tlio appli
ances would bo so perfect that there
would be no straining oi ships In trans

Vork Democrat : The hay crop lit York

this year , and our farmers will do well to
cnrotully pivst-rvo every sponr. If the
dry weather continues much longer , it
will br > about the only crop produced ,
and will bring : x good price this winter.

day , Western Nebraska is probably in
better condition than any other portion
of the state or union.

ing machines are running night and day.
The grain is so dry that il is absolutely
necessary lo cut it ns soon as it is ripe.

ISlair Republican : Win. McCormick's
blackberry patch has been covered with
pickers of late. They ate nearly all of
the fcinnlo sex , inoslly misses from seven
to twenty years old , Me says they are
easier lo control and bettor workers than
an equal number of boys would be.
Tuesday last , which was an awful hot
day , G'i pickers gathered ; ; H bushels of
berries. At ! ) cents a quart they earned
$31.70 for picking. At I' . ' ! cents a quart
in market UI biHliels brought $130. Had
it not been for the extreme dry weather
that patch of berries would have been as
good as a small gold mine.
Falrbury Gazette : The harvest of small
grain in this vicinity is well advanced ,
the weather thus far being 'quite lav or-
able , aside from tho4 almost intolerable
heat. The yiehl of winter wheat is about
an average , but it is well tilled and of bet
tor quality than usual. Spring wheat Is
light , Sand wo hear considerable com
plaint from chintz bugs. There will be a
lair yield of oats and of much better
quality than lust season.
Sohuyler Humid : We last week saw a
thirty acre field of wheat on Ben Point's
farm , in Lincoln prebinot , that was
ahead of anything in the wheat line that
wo have over seen in this state. Air.
Point tells us that the land Ind been
seeded to tame grass for a number of
years jvnl used for a pasture. That ho
last fall turned the heavy timothy sod
under , and this year sowed the ground to
wheat. This sfiows Mr ? Point to be a
very practical larmor. If more of tlie
farmers would use their hind in this man
ner we would have less complaints of a
short crop , of small grain , Mr. Point's
farm , which is situated two miles south
of llushvillc , consists of one hundred and
sixty acres. Ho has twenty acres of
thrittr young timber of his own planting
and no has an abundance of 'timothy
which he has just finished cutting.
The Use ofKnsilntto. * * "
Correspondence Farm and Garden : The
use of eiibilago means a revolution in
agriculture in New Kncland and Old
Kiigland. As you go further north the
quality of all crops becomes better. AVe
have the quality in New .England now ,
and if wo can get the quantity as ensil
age promises the eastern states will bo
the host place lor farming and not the
place to leave. The average daily con
sumption in America by adults of your
daily farm products is 10 cents worth of
meat , 5 cents worth of milk , butter and
cheese and | a cent's worth of eig8. _ This
makes the annual consumption of the
meat product $1,8 5,000,000 , the dairy
product $1)12,000,000 ) , and the octs product
! ? ! H,000,000. The egg product itself is
irrcnlor than that ot pig-iron , wool and
silver together. Yet who stands for the
hen-yard in congress to protest nzuinst
degrading the whole business of this
country to tlio value of an 80-ceut dollar ?
Why not buy iW.OOO worth of lions' eggs
every year t > .nu store them under the cap
ital until congress repeals two equally
absurd and meddling laws.
It is the waste of good food to put corn
into pork. AVe never have enough cgtrs
or poultry. AVc never Imvo enough beef ,
but witli Bismarck closing the doors of
Germany against us , the question is ,
what shall wo do with our pork ? I once
thought pork was condensed corn. But
corn in beef saves protein and loses fat.
Corn in pork loses protein and saves fr.t.
In beef the nutritious parts of the corn
arc re-enforced ; in pork they are merely
lost. Indian corn is a renovating , not an
exhausting , plant. It needs no extensive
nitrogenous fertilizers. Made into en
silage and fed to cows , it returns to the
soil in manure , and leaves a farm at the
end of tell years richer than it found it.
It is just hero that the agriculture of the
eastern iin'l middle states has so splendid
an outlook before it , Wo need to estab
lish beef factories as we haye established
cotton and woolen ones. The ranches of
tlio west have reached thnir maximum.
Vermont , with r , system of ensilage and
no freight to pay , can see them and go
them one better. I have been laughed at
as a theorist for saying that two steers
can bo fed to an acre. But Mr , Smith's '
figures show that one aero can support
lour. AVe want hugo beef stables of
heavy timbers , with three-inch plank
sides and slanting skylights , like the fac
tories built now on ttie slow-burning
principle of all underwriters. There lane
no longer any noon of your young men
running about looking for an occupation ,

Can Slicop \ > c JItulc Profltnhle ?
Sheep being excellent foragers , and
callable of picking up a portion of their
subsistence , hav'o been made to adapt
themselves to tl.oso sections where the
land cannot bo prolitably cultivated and
where they are supposed to cost but little
in proportion to that which may bo de
rived from them. For that reason the
American farmers have given their .U- '
tention to the small , active breed's , such
us the merino and native , which exist in
largo flocks more successfully than do
those of larger size.
Tlio objections to the largo mutton
breeds of sheep are tint they require too
much attention and must have good pas-
turagoi that they cannot well exist to
gether in large numbers , and must be
protected from the iteat and cold. It is
no doubt true that the merino is hardy
and requires less care than llio large
breeds , but the question to bo considered
is whether it will not pay to give tlio
large mutton breeds that attention which
many are not willing to bestow. Wo
have the dllVerenco in methods as prac
ticed in England and America. The Eng
lishman does not attempt to produce
wool , estimating the wool product as
something that simply attends the pro
duction of mutton as a secondary ad
junct , and aims to secure as largo a car
cass as possible. So "real has been the
progress attained by tlio English in the
improvement of the mutton breeds that
it is not uncommon to seeuro lambs
weighing 100 pounds when they are only
three months old , vyhilo IfiO pounds is
often readied by six-nionth-old lambs.
These weights are greater than those of
our mature native sheep , and show that
tlto farmer , with the use of the improved
breeds of mutton sheep , can dcrlvu a
largo profit without looking to the re
ceipts from wool at all.
If the English farmer can pay heavy
rents and depend upon his sheep as the
principal source of revenue , there is
nothing to prevent the American farmer
from doing tlio same ; but the English
grow special crops for sheep , shelter
them , hurdle them , keep them growing
from birth , and breed only from choice
sires. A three-year-old ram has been
made to woigli U ! . > pounds ( live weight ) ,
and owes often attain over COO pounds
each. It is , however , duo to the careful
feeding , as well as breeding , that success
is met with , for no English tanner would
turn out a llouk of sheep to find their
food or trample desirable herbage. It
lias been shown that shcop can bo con-
lined with hurdles and made profitable ,
and that the system of giving them largo
ransres will not answer for the mutton
breeds ; yet the fact that the English , with
an experience of centuries , have dis
carded wool and jjlVo their whole atten
tion to muttoii , is ' a lesson to us that
should not be ovprlqpkei ! or disregarded ,
especially as there is a great demand for
choice mutton ujliich is seldom supplied.
Separated a nil Skimmed Ml lie.
One of the most important subjects dis
cussed at the dairy 'conference ' , says the
Standard of London , was the utlli/.ation
of separated and skim milk. Mr. Stcph-
onson , mamigerof L'orrick's Cumberland
dairy factory , who read a valuable paper
on the question compared the returns in
money obtained from dillerent methods
of using the milk. For pic feeding ho es
timated that , wifclrpork at 5o per pound ,
the milk would come to only n little over
8c per gallon. A. more profitable use of
it is that of making it into soft cheeses ,
very extensively produced from skim
milK in Franco and some other conti
nental countries. There is much dill'or-
once of opinion as to tlio possibility of
creating an extensive demand for this
class of cliceso in England ; but , consider
ing that the consumption of soft cheeses
increases in tlio foreign countries , there
npucars to be no reason to doubt that
English imitations would in time find
favor. Professor Long has succeeded in
making some very palatable soft cheese
from sknn milk. Tliuro is no doubt ,
that Mr. Stcphcnson is right in his opin
ion that the sale of separated milk , as
such , to consumers in tlio towns would
bo the most profitable of all methods of
disposing of it , if the cost of distribution
could bo diminished. Separated milk is
of course fresher than milk skimmed
after setting , and if its consumption by
the public should bcconio general few
dairy farmers would be able to afford to
do without a separator. Milk simply
deprived of iU butter is n valuable food ,
and it would be a great advantage to llio
poor if it were supplied to them in qual-
tity nt a low figure.
Seasonable Hint * and Suggestions.
Cows like cabbage. leaves , but it is
better to feed thorn just after milking ,
otherwise they may flavor the milk.
Milk being a complete food , it cannot
bo produced unless a complete food is
given the cows for that purpose.
Another new breed of beef cattle , called
the Sussex , is being introduced in this
country as a rival of the Shorthorn and
An excellent honic-mado axle-grease is
said to bo made of two parts tallow , two
parts castor-oil and one part of pulver
ized black lead.
To avoid streaky butter have the cream
all of the same ripeness. Never churn
old and now cream together if the best
butter is expected ,
Do not feed breeding sows very largely
on grain. They may bo kept in good
condition , but ft should lx ) done by aioro
bulky or partially green food.
The floor is the most important part of

If ono tenth of the land in cultivation
wore covered by water in ponds from

would bo immenso.
Now is the time to'etore up a supply of
dry earth for winter use in the stable. It

A successful Canadian dairyman thinks
bran , peas and corn mixed the best butter
producing food for oows. Cows should
bo milked with dry bands. Cows should
not bo milked in proximity to the dung
Collars are usually damp because the
walls are cooler than the air , which
causes condensation of moisture , To
prevent this condensation of moisture It
is recommended 'ilmt the windows and
doors of the cellars lib closed during the
day and opened at night.
' The attempt to have a cow for butter
and beef is trying to make butter and
tallow with the same machine , " But is
not the same machine in operation while
the cow is biiin- ' fattened for beef and

Cheese factory owners cannot bo too
caruful not to put their cheese In too low
boxes. A buyer in Chicago describes
how a shipment of 400 boxes were nearly
ruined by being thus boxed. The shipper
probably thought to save a little on the

When butter i.s kept in tubs or earUien
vessels it must bo packed as closely as
possible , and no interstices or vacant
spaces left , for the butler quickly spoils
around these interstices , and the evil

that a tub be filled with butter made all
in one day.
As the bull should continue available
for u.so in the herd for three voar , and
will in that time leave an imlelliblo im
press for good or evil upon the herd , the
importance of making a good selection is
caiily seen. This much , however may be
positively asserted , and that is that a
nurc-bred bull , whatever his quality or
breeding , provided ho bo sound , will
prove inllnitoly safer than anygrado bull
Bloat In calves Is really an acute at

Nothing is of so much value to stock as
plenty of pure water. It Is a great mis
take to suppose that while it adds to the
health and thrift of cattle , sheep and
horses , it is not a necessity of swine. The
greatest amount of t-wlll supplied in the
pen will not take the place of clean ,
sparkling water. Hogs which have not
been accustomed to it , after a few days'
regular supply , put on now life and ac
tivity ; their eyes brighten and their very
grunt is indicative of happiness and con
Stock should bo fed a variety of food.
Many flocks and herds have to subsist
almost entirely upon grain food the en
tire year , whioli is an injudicious mode
of feeding. Vegetables , either raw or
cooked , or mixed with ground grain , are
excellent , but there is nothing equaling
a liberal supply of grain morning and
night , with plenty of grass during the
day , and if the pasture is supplied with
n mixed herbage so mueli the better.
Variety conduces to health and promotes
In a recent meeting of the Elmira ( N.
Y. ) Farmers' club the subject of growing
fodder corn being up , the members were
urged bv those who had tried It to sub
stitute the early amber cane wholly erin
in part as superior as a green food to any
variety of corn. Tlio same opinion has
boon reached in the west by farmers who
have grown cano as a forage crop , and
it is probable all things considered it is
ono of tlio best , if not the best , crop that
can be grown for green feeding.
Most farmers have learned that cut hay
or even straw wet and sprinkled with
meal is better feed for working horses
than whole grain and hay. In this &hapo
the nutriment in the hay Is onsily eaten
and easily digested. Horses do not need
water when eating , except as it is puton _
the chopped hay lo make the meal stick
to it. The meal being fine digests per
fectly , while much of the nutriment in
whole grain is lost , Again , the wasted
eflect in digesting tlio "latter is so much
detracted from the strength which should
go to the work.
It has econ found that trees are longest
lived when kept in sod. AVhen the soil is
cultivated the trees , especially in a rich
soil , will often make : i rank growth of
three or four feet. The wood will bo
soft , and , as it generally fails to ripen ,
the growth will be killed during the win
ter. In clean , open soil , too , the freezing
and thawing of winter is more injurious
than if the ground is covered with a good
sod. The best rnlo is to consult the ap
pearance of the tree , and if the growth is
too rank throw tlio land into grass , and
keep it in sod so long as it makes a good
One may keep ten or twelve fowls with
profit who could not double or treble this
number successfully , because witli a
larger number all the difficulties which
arise , such as want of cleanliness , tlio
presence of vermin , impure air and risk
ot infectionincreasoin a much larger ratio
than does the number in tlm flock. But
if ono has succeeded with a small flock
there i.s no reason why _ he should not dose
so with several flocks if each is kept in
just the same manner as tlio original one.
Afterward tlio flocks may bo enlarged ,
but as this is the very point on which
most of tlio younger poultry-raisers fail ,
the greatest caution should bo observed
in adding to the number of fowls Kept In
each coop or house or yard.
A FIRST-CLASSGHOST STORY.
The Medical Student and the Girl with
n Kronen Smile.
A Now York special says : The causes
and cure of the insanity ot Charles Rich
ards , lately a patient in tlio insane asy
lum at Blackwoll's island , presnnt ono of
the strunso freaks which nature so
peculiarly deals out once in a while with
no apparent reason or determination. It
was in the winter of 1885 , just after the
beginning of the reason's course of
lectures at the College of Physician and
Surgeons , that Richard * was admitted as
a second-year student from the medical
university. Ho had just passed his
twenty-first birthday , and was in many
respects a remarkable student. Ho find
an intuitive knowledge of the symptoms
of disease that is rarely mot with. Ho
was a first-class anatomist. In his gen
eral and special requirements ho bids fair
to roach a position of prominence in the
profession no lias chosen. Last October
lie determined to make strenuous efforts
to carry off the prl/o for the best
dissection of the head , nook and
right arm. Ho wanted a body which in
dicated strength and delicacy. He found
one at last. It was the corpse of a girl
who had bcon found frozen in n lumber
yard , The body had boon frozen in a
sitting posture and retained this nhapo.
The face of the dead cirl wore a sort of
idiotic smile. Her left arm was cramped
over the abdomen and hold firmly there
by tlio cold. Richards hnd ro-sold the
lower extremities of the corpse , having
no Ube for thom.and after ho got through
the day's studios ho went to the dissect
ing room to divide the body and deliver
these parts to the purchaser. It was
nearly 11 o'clock when he started through
the dimly lighted dissecting room , where ,
upon the twenty-four slabs , were aamany
grinning , distorted bodies In eyorv stage
of dissection. It was not a pleasant
place for a nervous nmn the night was
stormy , the wind howled through the
shutters and along the roof.
Hail and snow boat upon
the glass in the windows as
if departed spirits had returned to pro
test against the mutilation of their
bodies. Richard moved quickly to slab
No. 14. T'hero was the girl with her
frozen smile , sitting upright. The body
was naked , and slightly thawed , but was
still too hard for the knife to run easily.
Richards waited for a few minutes and
then made up his mind to wait until the
next day , but us ho was about to fro away
ho noticed a very peculiar swelling on
right leg of the cadaver. His curiosity
being aroused , ho slipped on his long
black gown , took out a small knife , and
begun to cut around the swelling to do *
termino its character. Ho was bending
low over the abdomen , engrossed in Ins
work , Above his ucad there was a
change. The upper part of the corpse
had thawed the most. The muscles In
right arm , the hand of which was behind
the head , relaxed , and the weight caused
the hand to t-lip from behind the head
mid slowly descend. Riehards did
not know of the change. Ho had dis
covered a rare form of tumor and bent
over the body to o\ainino it. Downward
came the hand , moing a llltle quicker
all tlio while , until .suddenly the body
gave a leak and the ley hand fell upon the
young man's ncek. Tlio shock was 501110-
thing terrible. He could not stir. 1IU
blood seemed to freeze in his veins , lie
clutched the frozen leg to keep from full
ing , and tin n ho slowly drew his head
away au.d looked at the corpse The
same idlolie smile was there , but to his
excited imagination the lips seemed to
move in silent mockery. Ho felt as if
.suffocating , and rushed madly into the
oiion air and hurried homo nud aroused
his uncle. He told him the story in every
detail , and said that he could not get tlio
woman's hand oil'his neck. His undo
laughed at the idea , and tried to dispel
the illusion. Richards wont to his room ,
not to sleep. His mind was filled with
a horror which ho could not shake oil'
The hand of death was on his neck al
ways , and the idiotic .smile was at his
shoulder whenever ho would turn. Ho
grow worse from day to day , and in two
weeks having shown .signs of the suicidal
mania , he was sent to the asylum. Ho
was very reticent all the time , and wiped
Ids neck at frequent intervals with his
handkerchief to take something away.
The main manifestation of the pcmentia
was the exhibition of the most abject
fear. His condition become uradually
worse , and the case was looked upon as
hopeless , lie had to bo carefully
Vtatchl'd to keep from committing sui
cide. The regular keeper had been
taken sick , and a now ono did not exer
cise the proper watchfulness. Tlio pa
tient during the night got up from nis
cot , tore a sheet and hung himself to the
door of.his cell. Ho was found soon
afterward by the keeper , unconscious
and nearly dead. He was at once cut
down and efforts made to resuscitate
him. After hours of labor the patient
became conscious. His uncle , who had
been sent for , cot to the asylum about the
time lie opened his eyes , and took charge
of the subtcquont treatment. The cll'eet
of the great shock had worn oil , and the
young man rocogni/cd his undo and
talked with him. Ho seemed to be
dazed , but spoke in n natural manner.
There was no trace of the former dread
which had possessed him and he grad
ually "row bright and cheerful. In a
month lie seemed as well as ever , talked
freely about himself and his feelings ,
and professed that Ins mind was a blank
about the events of tlio months that ho
had been confined. It was deemed safe
to discharge him from the asylum , nud
about a week r.go ho was bet free. A
change being advised , lie started for
Europe. It is believed he will return
perfectly sound in mind.
