Charles Knight recently bought out the

The colored quintette club , of Omaha ,
remembered the HUB man Wednesday
night by one of the sweetest serenades
ever poured Into his appreciative ears.
The-sclections were now and their rendi
tion most excellent. It is seldom that as
sweet music lloats out on tlio midnight
nir of Council Binds. On hearing such a
serenade the naragraphcr is tempted to
swear oft from ever attempting to bi >
funny at the expense of serenading
parties and to feel ashamed of himscf for
ever having done bo.
It was amusing to note the manner m
which the evening papers told about
being Informed "by a prominent gentle
man of Sioux City" concerning the con
fession of the two men arrested for the
Haddock murder. The prominent gen
tleman was without doubt the special
telegram , which appeared in yesterday
morning's IKI ! : , and the evening scribes
were evidently introduced to him by a
pair of shears. They do like enteruriso ,
out they hate to give the Bin : credit for it.
Dr. Macrae has been paid a compli
ment of which ho has the right to feel
proud , and it certainly is ot interest and
pride to the city at large to have him
singled out : ih the only representative of
Iowa named among the dllicurs of the
ninth international medical congress
which Is to meet in Washington next
year. Dr. Macrae is one ot the vice
presidents of the section of general surg
ery. Nebraska has ono representative ,

Joe Probate ! has been sorely bothered
by traveling num who have insisted on
selling him goods whether ho wanted to
buy or not. Ho stood this well enou < rh ,
but the other day ho was induced to en
dorse a draft for n traveling man for $25 ,
and the house for whom he traveled re
fused to honor it , HO Mr. Probstel had to
pay it out of his own pocket. Ho has
sworn a big swear that no more traTcling
men need apply , and when asked how ho
proposed to Keep thorn away , ho re
marked that ho proposed to put a chattel
mortgage on his stock , and then ho knew
they would not come near him. A surer
way to keep traveling salesmen from
bothering him could not bo devised
Biiroly , and as Mr. Probstol's ' credit is
suoh that they are nil anxious to soil
him now , the idea is certainly a novel

moans a new ono since the city has such
n wonderful system ot works , ami in the
lutesmn well line also the city has sev

usual courtesy , gave the visitors a chance
to inspect the waterworks to their satis
faction , and the committed also took a

The friends of Mrs , 11. C. Barnes will
be saddened and shocked to learn of her
dnath which occurred in Clinton , Iowa ,
Wednesday night , She had been for n
long time sufl'orhig from a disease , which
gave little hope of recovery , but of late
was reported as being in a more hopeful
condition. She was visiting with her sis
ter in Clinton , and within a day or so
lias began to fail again and rapidly. Her
husband received a telegram Wednesday
informing him that her condition was
inch that ho had better come at once , and
ho started on the evening train , but it
was then too lute for him to see her

In the superior court yesterday the
larger portion of the day was taken up in
a ht'arlugof a neighborhood row , brought
in from l.e\\is township , about seven
miles from the city. The action was
jronitlit to make John and Mary Hankie ,
irothcr and sister , give bonds to keep the
) oace , especially toward Knsign Nivon ,
he son of a neighbor. It appeared that
some trouble had arisen between the
young folks of the two families. The Kn-
sign boy claimed that the Hcnkles had
* \ 5aultcd. him and had made throats
igainst him and his. The Henkles
laimed that the Kusign boy had insulted
kltiry Henkle and had said that the Hen-
ilcs stole corn , and that lie did an even
neaner trick than that , lie had stretched
a barb wire across the road over which
he young folks came in returning from
own one night , and so placed it as to
nako thrm tear their clothes anil fall
nto the ditch. This was what caused
John to ship the Nixon youth , who drew
i revolver as though ho was going to kill
oft the Henkles. Judge Aylesworth lis-
eiicd patiently to all the details of the
amily and neighborhood matters and
hen hid the outfit go in peace , admonish-
ng the parents to hold their sons and
laughterri In check and keep back the
tide of battle.

The Lake Still Hero.
There has been a little scare about the
cport that the waters of Lake Manawa
were fast ebbing out , nnd that soon the
ground that now knows them will
enow them no more forever. It has been
stated that in getting a steamer from
Omaha into the lake the channel of the
on I-oil' had to bo deepened and dug out ,
and that siueo then the water has been
fast receding from the lake. The reports
liave been greatly exaggerated , as suoh
reports are inclined to be. City Engineer
i'ostevin has been surveying the locality
and has decided upon some plans for im
provement at little cxpenso , and there is
little doubt but that if his suggestions are
followed out the lake will bo all right in
all ways. The citi/.ens seem disposed to
furnish any modern to amount of money
to preseno and improve this popular re
sort , and there is no chance for any ono
to begin to crow over the downfall of
Council Bluffs' hummer pride. It is pre
dicted that next season will be a greater
uoorn for the place , oven , than this year

Dark Family Trouble.
Thcro is trouble among some of the
colored people. Mr. Green learned that
at the dance given Wednesday night
George Clinss insulted his daughter , a
girl only fifteen years of ago. Naturally
lhc Green family wore exasperated , and
Mrs. Green wont for George's wife about
it. Mrs. Chriss denied tluit George was
at the ball , but she made inquiries and
found that ho had slipped up there unbe
known to his wife , lip explained to her
that instead of insulting the Green girl ,
it was the Green cirl who had trieu to
flirt too freely with him. This made Mrs.
Chriss angry at the Green cirl , and she
proceeded to hunt the girl out and pun-
ihh her. A blue coat next appeared on
the scene and led Mrs. Chriss behind the

Special Trains Again.
Messrs. Odell Bros , & Co. , and Vic
Keller , of Keller tk Harlo the liverymen ,
have been hard at work tryinc to have
the "special" train from Omaha put on
again , to accommodate those wishing to
como over to Lake Manawa. From pres
ent appearances it looks as it they are
about to auccccd , The plan is to be for
the Union Pacific to issue coupon tickets
charging § 1 for the round trip , which in
cludes cars , omnibus anil ferriage. Kol-
l rs Harlu will meet the Rpocml at tlio
Broadway depot with their lanro ba'id
wagon , as will a few others , and carry
the Omaha folks to the beach and take
ono of the coupons attached to the ticket
as will the boatmen , and afterwards thu
Union Pacific will redeem the coupons.
The Happy KlopcrH.
Another chapter was added yesterday
afternoon to the elopement of Charles
Koch and Lizzie Popponlmgen. It will
bo remembered that on last Monday the
couple arrived hero and stopped at Kiel's
hotel. They hailed from St. Louis , and
quickly getting a license thciy secured the
services of Jimlco Hondrloks to marry
thorn. They had hardly loft hero for
Omaha before the girl's father arrived ,
hurried and hot , and began pouring
forth threats as to what ho would do if ho
caught the follow who had run off with
his daughter. Ho examined the records ,
and finding that in order to got n license
the young man had taken his oath that
the girl was of ago , ho Marled out with
the grim determination to bring the
young man to justice for a wearing to a
lie , The father claimed that thu girl
was only fifteen years of ago , a more
ohihl , but her appearance was certainly
that of a person old enough to marry ,
nnd it seems in some respects that it was
bobt for her to marry the man of her
choicu , The man who had been thus
forced to bo a fatliur-in-law wont across
the river , and there found that the young
couple had arranged to settle down a few
miles from Omaha. The young man is a
blacksmith , and between the shop and
keeping a boarding boitbo , U seems that
the young couple wcro going to be
abundantly able to care for themselves.
The old man was bent on prosecuting
his fcon-in-law for perjury , and a warrant
had been issued from Justice Sehur/'s
court. YcilerUay the young couple
came over to this side \oluutanly ,
and the young man stood his examina
tion , The old man for some rensou was
not present. The young couple declared
that they informed him they wnro com
ing over to have llie matter hottled , and
that ( hey expected him to bo present.
Whether this was to , or whether ( lie
young folks gave the old man unothct
slip , is not known , but stilllco It ho was
not here , The younz man admitted that
ho had swoj-.i that the clrl vas cichtctn
years of nxivbut. Jhatjie siiltposed she
was. r been so iu7otTn ' 'U

; he had informed him she was ciglilccn.

tad liuornied him she * was eighteen. In
view of all the circumstances and the pe-
juliaritlcs of ( ho law in reirard to per-
ury , Ju'-tieo Sclmrz promptly illsmisscd
; ho charge. His honor gave thoj'ouiiK
nan some good advice In regard to tak-
ng the youiii : wife home and caring for
icr well , and from the loving actions of
.ho runaways it seemed that the advice
was hardly necessary. The irate father-
ii-law will doubtless now return to his
ionic in St. I.ouis and leave the young
! elks to their own pleasure.

Chicago Inter Ocean : The death and
desirotci ; : : : duritiB the past iifteen years
by forest ( ires in Michigan and Wih'consiii
have been incalculable. The time indi
cated may be divided into four periods or
cpochs each of which witnessed its terri
ble visitation of flame , each resembling
the other , yet difl'erent and about equally
parceling out the lime. The longdrouirht
this year found the vast timber territor
ies ready for the spark or the torch The
horrors of the autumn of the great Chicago
cage lire seem this year in a lair way to
bo repeated in these states.
The lires of 1871 occurred during tlio
months of September and October. Ex
tensive lires overran the northeastern
part of Wisconsin. Those were but the
the forerunner of an appalling conllagra-
tion at Pcshtigo , on the very days when
Chicago was wrapped in llamos. October
8-0. Vast and valuable forests , hundreds
of homos , farms , indeed entire villages ,
\ycro obliterated. The besom of destruc
tion fell upon Pcshligo at almost pre
cisely the same hour Sunday evening
that the O'Leary cow rchicveil
immortality nnd went to her re
ward. The fire became a deluge. It
rolled over four counties and portions of
two more. The cast and west shores of
Green Bay were a wilderness. The loss
to life alone was placed at certainly 1,000
persons. Pcshti o and adjacent places
iiad 000 deud. The destitute wore count
less. The hospitals were crowded. The
calamity was partially lost sight of in
that matchless conflagration of Chicago
on Sunday. Monday and Tuesday , Octo
bcr 8 , ! ) and 10.
The same month the great Saginuw
valley in Michigan had its baptism of
( iro. The burnt district comprised coun
ties , not townships. An amount of tim
ber equal to live years' cut of the valley
was destroyed , or , in round numbers ,
4,000,000,001 feet. The loss in the coarse
timber , particularly hemlock , was beyond -
yond computation. While Michigan was
in the midstof the grand work of help
ing Chicago's suHcring ones , the same
fell destroyer was desolating the region
just referred to. As Governor Baldwin
said to the legislature : "Thriving towns ,
farms and school-houses , churches ,
stock , crops and thousands of acres of
valuable timber were consumed. Nearly
3,000 families , or about 18,000 persons ,
wore rendered homeless and deprived of
the necessaries of life. "
The next fire horror was in 1875. Jt
was on April 28 of that year when Oskosh ,
Wis. , was burned. The greater part of
the business quarter of that city was de-
btroycd. Mills and lumber yards , with
their vast stores of material wore con
sumed. The largo lumbering interests
of that section sull'orcd heavily. So far
as figures can express the loss , the damage -
ago was placed $3,000,000. ,
During the months of May and June ,
187/5 / , extensive and destructive fires were
burning in portions of Canada. Pennsyl
vania and Now York and Michigan suf
fered severely in parts. This was , however -
over , so far as Michigan was concerned
nothing like the scourge of 1877. It was
in May , 1877 , that millions of fcot of pinn
lumber wcro burned in Michigan and
Wisconsin , but oven that was a trifle ,
compared with previous firos.
The most recent severe forest fires oc
curred In 1881. Liku the most destructive
conflagrations of ten years previous
thcso wcro in Michigan in tha autumn.
On September 5 the lire swept through
the forests and fields of Huron and Han-
line counties , Mich. , burning dwellings ,
barns , churches , t > aw nulls. lonccs ,
orchards , farm crops , etc. huch was
the speed of the flames that live stock
could find no shelter from it , and many
persons could not reach safety ,
and so were lost in the lire ,
A number of villages wcro com
pletely destroyed , not one house remain
ing , The smoke was so dense that day
was turned Into night. In many places
high winds prevailed , and acres of for
ests were loin up by the roots. Tires
seemed to appear simultaneously In u
dozen places. Nearly 1,800 square miles
of territory , or fully 1,000,000 , ncrcst wcro
burned over , or iv belt sixty miles in
length north and south and from ten to
thirty miles in widtli east and west.
Other counties , sunh as Lapcor , St. Clalr
and Tuscola , Builered , but nothing like
tho.se first named. The loss of life is be-
liuvcd to have been not less than 300 ,
