trnojt THE nsr/s t.ivroi.v npiiKtc.1
County Treasurer Kocke , of Lanc.i lrr
county , has made his srini-aunual report.
Tliit report show.s a gratifying state of
financial allairs for the county ami that
the finances are greater in receipt than
the expenditure , which makes the red
ink side of the ledger in favor of the
ueople. The gross receipts of the ollieo
fortho six months past aggregate a grand
total of $ ! 11 ! ) , .73. Of this iOrj79 , 57
came from state funds , $ 11,57(5.87 ( on the
general fund , $ l-ii7.10 ! ) : from the county
sinking fund , fjO : , < J05.-10 from the district
road fund , fl5.tMMB ! from tlio Lincoln
city fund , and so on through the leaser
items until the grand total i.s reached.
Troiii the grand total of receipts there
have been paid out , in warrants on the
dillerent funds during the past six
months , a grand total of $180,171.07 ,
leaving a balance in the hands ot the
treasurer at the ti mo of making the state
ment of $1:10,211.US : a ? county poeket mon-
ev on hand and ready for disbursements.
Of the different funds , the only two in
which the receipts and disbursements are
nearly equally balanced are the county
road fund and the county bridge fund.
Kut the Lincoln city fund is drawn out
very closely , there being $10,00(1 ( uf the
$15,000 in that expended during the cur
rent six months. The funding bond fund
is untouched , also the insane fund , and
only a little more than pno-half of the
county general fund receipts have been
expended , making tlio treasurer's state
ment a * a whole ono that shows a big
fund left in the hands of the treasurer.

there were no more liens airaitist the

three hours afterward , with his wife ,
was en route to Missouri. It wa.s not
two dajs before two liens , one for lumber
and one for plastering , were presented to
Mr Johnson , and as the forty-day limit
under the law for filing liens had not ex-
pirc'I , tlie parties hohiing them gave no
tice that they should hold him for pay
ment. Without waiting to see how many
more unp.iid claims Hnsoin had _ left
over the property. Johnson obtained
requisition papers from the governor ,
and learning that his man was at Ilanni-
liat , Mo. , the ca e wa.s put in Detective
1'owel'n hands with a warrant issued
from Justice Cochran , and a telegram
was sent ordering lu | om'.s arrest , which
was made. The otllcer expects to have
his man hero by Friday. Mr. Johnson
finds , on inquiry , that the same follow
lias been disposing of mortgaged prop
erty in this city previous to leaving , and
that a number have been taken in on that
deal , making the case look as though it
would bo a very interesting ono for Mr.
Harry Htissom when bo shall anpear
again in Lincoln to answer for Ills acid in

THE CAISSON CUKE.
A Itemnrknblc Story Told t "Times"
Ilcjiorter in Katrnimint Pnrk.
" \Vero you ever troubled with asthma ? "
; aspcd a benevolent looking old gentle
man , as he look a seat beside a Times
reporter and mopped the perspiration
i-om his brow in Fairmonnt I'ark ou
Sunday. "No ? Well , you're fortunate.
I've had it for thirty years. I might have
cured myself several years ago , but I had
not the grit to take the caisssion cure "
'What Ps that ? " we askeil. "Well , I'll
relate a little incident that once came
mder my personal observation"said ho ,
'which will explain what I mean. When
: he big railroad bridge of the Hannibal
& St. Joseph railroad was being con
structed over the Missouri river , owing
o the muddy bottom the caissons used
n the construction of the piers had to be
sunk from sovoyty-live to one hundred
mil twenty-live feet below the bed of the
river to reace rock bottom. The gas
weieh accumulated in the caisaions was
of the coldest character and it was al
most impossible to get men to go down
'Four dollars an hour was offered for
Hit * work , with few takers. It was almost
mpoasiblc to live in one of them longer
than an hour and a dead man wns brought
up nearly everyday. Well , one day , as
the chief engineer was sadly contemulat-
ind thoslowncisof the work and wonder
ing if it would ever bo completed , a
miserable , haggard being , more dead
than alive , approached him and asked
for a job , 'Seo icro , my man , ' said the
engineer , 'this isn't a. morgue. You've
struek _ the wrong funeral. ' 'Ain't yon
offering four dollars an hour here for
caisson men'1 stud , the shadow. 'Yes , I'm
offering lour dollars an hour , but not for
walking stiffs , ' said the engineer. 'Well ,
I'm starving , and I'm booked for the
other worm anyhow , and 1 might just as
well die trying to live as to starve to
death. Give me a job and I'll take my
chanes on it.
"Well , the engineer gave him a job.
bade him gooil good-b.yc , anil expected
to see him brought up a corpse. The
skeleton stayed down that caisson three
straight hours , and when he came IIP he
walked up to the engineer , asked for
some money to buy something to drink ,
and said ho hadn't felt so good for three
months. Tlio next day he worked six
hours and said lie felt bully ; the next day
eight hours , and kicked liked a steer be
cause the boss wanted to chase him up a
quarter of an hour before his time
"Well , he worked in tlio caisions eight
hours a day until the bridge was finished.
When ho went down In the caisson the
first day ho weighed eighty pounds and
hadn't a cent. When he got through
with the job he weighed 175 pounds , had
a full boardwas the wrongest man in the
gang and had saved up over a thousand
dollars. You see , he hail the asthma.
The bracing atmosphere of Missouri was
too much for him. The confining at- ,
mosplicro of the caissons was just what
ho needed and really saved his life. Ho
invested his savings in a farm near Kan
sas City , speculated successfully , and is
now the owner of one of the largest cat
tle ranches in Texas.
"It was certainly a remarkable cure ,
but I have always regretted that 1 did not

SiiKKANDOAH , Iowa , July 27. [ Corre
spondence of the HER. ) It I ? dlflicnlt to
estimate the progress of an enterprising
community heartily interested in a great
and laudable undertaking. Such is the
case with the beautiful little city of Shon-
andoah. Scarcely a score of years ago
the very site of this city was a vast
waste of green prairie without history or
record , but to-day it is covered with spac
ious business houses and the happy
homes of 5,500 pcople.with their churches ,
public schools and college. Well may
less favored localities envy Slienandoah
her proud distinction of an educational
center. Four years ago buildincs were
erected , and the Western normal college
opened , largely through the liberality
and public spirit of the citizens. Although
scarcely settled in their new homes they
knew full well the great worth of a good
educational institution , and liberally
subscribed to the enterprise , and to-day
on one of her most sightly hills stands
the college , an institution second to no
other in the west , in her equipage , man
agement , discipline , anil methods of in
struction. After four years of varied
Hiicct'is we can now sav the institution is
an accomplished fact , and that its super
intendent , Prof. Wm. McUroan , is the
man for the place.
On yesterday at 3 o'clock p. m. , a vast
audience assembled In the college chapel
to hear the ISnecalanreato addre.-s by the
principal. Professor O. 11. Longwell.
Although the weather was hot , yet the
masterly address captured every one
present. Especially was it enjoyed by
.students , school olliccrs and educators.
The topic discussed was "A Practical
Education. " This Mibject was skillfully
handled under certain division * termed
1. The course of study should contain
enough and the kind of work to cive the
proper mental discipline , or culture , for
2. The work should bo done in such a
manner as to develop individuality and
character in tlio pupil.
o. The pupil should bo so instructed
that he is able to exercise good judgment.
Under these heads the speaker verily
"A little learning is a dangerous tiling.
Drink deep or taste not the 1'ierian
The peculiarly pflisUive , terse and con
cise language used forced every idea
upon the attention with all its strength.
Your reporter thinks there could have
been no one present who was not in
structed and aroused by the discussion.
Professor Longwell is the proper man
for the head of the faculty. The exercises
of the hour were supplemented by soul-
stirring selections rendered by the Union
orchestra nmier the efficient management
of Professor W. F. Strong , director of
the musical conservatory , closing with
"Swoct By and By. " in whiph the
audience heartily joined.
The large attendance at the collece
during the past year and tno many
present from abroad on this occasion
demonstrate the popularity ot this noble
institution with its successful princinai
and his noble corps of teachers. I feel
safe in saying that the W. N. C. is in the
front rank. During the coming four
days tlio various commencement exer
cises will be given headed by the alumni
this evening. They will , by lav , excel in
volume und character , anything in the
history of the institution. Should not
the people of Shcnaudoali and vicinity
look witli pride upon this school and
guard its interests with fostering c.ire ?

my reason was not entirely dethroned.
For three weeks I was perfectly sane , a

In tlio re-port of tbis committee of last
year they say that thev do not consider
the doctors responsible for the inhuman
treatment of patients. 1 ask you who ,
then. Is responsiole for hiring such speci
mens of humanity , unworthy the naniu

over the unfortunate of our state ? Re

fiendish creatures employed Ihere , unless
recently removed , who revel in cruelty ,
and seem to take delight in it at every
But one of the worst features of this
institution is the wretched fare of the iia-
tients , which I will attempt to descrnie ,
and for which , no one will deny , that Dr.
Math'Myson is directly rasnonsiblo. Bread
and boiled beef , boiled beef ami bread ,
alternately , until the poor victims cry
out for a change. Poor , black coll'oo with
the faintest tinge of sugar ; in fact , one
has to think twice to decide whether it
contained any sugar at all. Butter once
a day , spread witli tiio handle of a tin
.spoon ? Vegetables consisted of boiled
beats , tops and dirt included. Potatoes ,
a Juxur.y , lettuce without vinegar ,
fruits , dried prunes , two or three times
per week. Ofcour.se , those being so ex
pensive , this descrfnuist be limited and
cheap , which constated of Indian meal or
oat meal mush , Without sugar to make it
palatable , and bread puddings. Now , do
not got impatient , dear readers , while I
describe an e.xluelloat cake , which I
am sure the Hfjnoiablo Thomas Carr
and the other moiuburs of that committee
would enjov. It tasted like all the filth
of the kitchen seasoned with rotten
eggs and politics , stirred in one grand
mass , and naked'oy tlio heat ot election
day. It is certain , gentlemen , if on the
occasion of youri visit you had eaten at
the hospital tables , instead of being feast
ed at the Dr's sumptuous board , you
would have been wiier and bettor men
at the close of th'c investigation. It takes
$190.04 , according to tho'report , for the
support of each inmate. Allowing $1.00
per week for , this miserable
fare , how will you account for the balance
of the money ? Do you say it is the work
which takes the money ? Go over there
and seethe long line of patients filing out
to assist in the laundry and sowing room.
Sec them doing tliti dining-room and
kitchen work , making beds , mending
stockings , swooping , scrubbing , and do
ing the dirty-worKof the wards.
Women who ought to be , at home taking
care of their families , who , with plenty
of good food , and fresh air. might bo re
stored to health , are working there for
their board and a blue calico dress to
wear , at the same time the county or their
friends are paying their board , to have
them treated for insanity.
Now , in conclusion , I ask , if the won
derful doctor , who .sits in luxury and
ease , guarding the gates of that prison ,
who holds the key to the door to every
cell that none escape until he wills it , is
not responsible for anything , why is he
employed ? More anon.

yeari ago a man who chanced to wear a
high hat of any description west of the
Missouri river was reasonably certain to
have it shot otV his head by the festive
frontiersman. Failing to give their
humor that particular outlet , the people
of some western settlements have boon
known to fall in line and follow a man
who wore a silk Hat until ho took refuge
in his hotel and1 borrowed a head cover
that corresponded more nearly witli the
community's ideA of style and the fitness
of things. The Baltimore cry of 'To-
nuclile" is In the same line , though more
exasperating , since it. is aimed at a fash
ion which is all but universal.
To put a stop to the practice the police
have issued it warning that hereafter all
ptirsons so ofTending will bo arrested for
disorderly conduct aud lined. A much
more effective mctliod of bringing the
horso-play to an end would bo to apply
the Chicago rougli on rats remedy. The
man who cries t" Hats ! " hero once is
called upon Immediately thereafter to
uurso a broken head , and ho never docs
so any more ,

THU S1ZCOXO DISTKICT.
Some Very Pertinent Questions ns to
Congressman l nlrd.
F.unnt'uy , Neb. , Juli 20. To the Kd-
itor of the BKF. : In your editorial of
July SI , entitled "A Disgrace to the
State , " I notice jon end by saying , "If
the republicans of the Second district
attempt to inflict this man on the state
again they deserve to be disfranchised
forever. " I would ask , Do you think
they will attempt it * Are they not sharp
politicians and already see that Laird
cannot be elected * Again , if nominated ,
do they not know that the prohibition
voters of this district who are republi
cans will not vote for a man as Intem
perate as Laird ? The first time Laird
was nominated he was bv hard work
elected by a verj small majority , and no
big majority the second time , ' and in
stead of making a better congressman ho
has been the reverse. His intemperate
habits make him thus. What has ho
done this session for his constituents , the
old soldiers ? He pays no personal atten
tion to letters from old comrades or to
their pension matters. He ha made a
speecli or two In favor of naylnc some
olUeors , but how about the privates'
His district is lull of them.
What has he done before the pension
committee , or the commissioner of pen
sions for the privates ? At the pre.-ent
lime we old soldiers are going to vote for
the men that do for us : uid our needy
comrades. Hereafter party lines , the re
publican bosses will tind count for
nothing but services for the old soldiers
overv tiling , I have heard many ot the
old comrades vow the , > would not vote for
Laird again. Then again what has he
done for the western farmers ? Nothing ,
I have heard many of the republican
farmers of this locality , who have voted
for Laird heretofore vow they would not
vote for him again , as he has done noth
ing , and is opposed to the re election of
Van Wyck. 1 know the republican
farmers of this county are three fourth's
or more for Van Wyck. Do you think
the republicans of the Second district will
"attempt to intlict" Laird on us and
figure out hii election with a bur loss of
republican Van Wyck farmers , with the
loss of many old republican soldiers , anil
last but not least the republican pro-
hibilionisls ? They had bi'st stop before
they pull down the pillars. They had
best look for some man who can get Ihis
vote. I have heard of a comrade spoken
of for this district who I think could get
all this vote and be elected if nominated ,
that is Hon. Martin Burns of Vork county ,
his record when state senator being a
No. 1 , if I am not mistaken.
That great conqueror of pain , St
Jacobs Oil. ha.- been rightly called a
Valley County All'i lr' .
OKD , Neb. July 'JO. To the Editor of
the BKI : : I see in one of the Omaha
papers of July 21 that a resolution of the
alliance was passed to the effect that the
county of Valley was out some forty or
fifty thousand dollars , under the adminis
tration of H. A. Babcock and that the books
kept were mutilated. Now , in justice to
the alliance of Valley county , I desire to
say through your paper that there has
been no such resolution passed by our
alliance. The citi/.ens of Valley county
have by petition requested the board of
commissioners of Valley county to have
an investigation made of the county
records by a competent expert. And at
the meeting of the county alliance on the
7th day of July there na-scd a resolution
that it was tlio sense of the meeting tnat
such investigation bo had , and that a
committee of three be appointed to urge
upon the commissioners the necessity of
There has never boon a resolution of
the Valley county alliance passed charg
ing any person or public officer with
fraud or corrnution , but the wish of the
alliance is that they may know the exact
standing of the county. Respectfully ,

A. I'raycr for Gladstone.
A preacher who was an ardent admirer
of Mr. Gladstone , prayed for heaven's
blessing on the premier in these some
what ambiguous words : l'O Lord , at
tliis critical juncture of events , be pleased
to grant that Mr. Gladstone and his fol
low redeemers of England may hang
together. " On hearing the prayers a
brother below , who was accustomed to
"amen" in prayer time , and \ylio ap
proved of the conservative policy , ex
claimed : "Amen , amen , may they all
hang together.1 The. radical minister
felt that he was misunderstood , and , by
way of explanation , exclaimed : "OLord ,
1 do not mean ban" together in the sense
which the brother down below means it ;
I mean , may they in accord and concord
bans together. " "Amen , amen , " re
plied the conservative worshiper , "I
don't mind what the cord is so long as
they hang on tlic same cord. "
