own advantage , while the last fair was
in progress , Jackman had not yet re
gained lilw former plane of respectability ,
and upon urgent solicitation , was given
employment again by the fair board and
put in charge of the race entries , which
no was to work subject to the supervision
of Major Wheeler. Since the close of
the tair there has been pome checking
-fioing on. especially with regard to Jack-
man , and at last accounts , although the
work had not been completed , it was fell
that the Jaekman shortage would be
about live hundred dollars , and thu
board that amount behind. In all the
races at tlio lime of entry , tlio horse
owner paid one-lifth of the entrance fee.
while tlio other four-lifths had lo bo paid
before the start. Nearly all of this latter
sum was paid to Jackman , and Major
Wheeler , it is supposed , placed implicjt
confidence in him , only to lind when it
was too late , that both himsulf and the

THE N TAX.
The Injunction to I'revent Its Collec
tion
The representatives of I lie Pullman Pal
ace Car companymadc a formal applica
tion before Judge Brewer in the United
States court yesterday uftcrnoonjfor mi iu <
junction to prevent the states of Iowa ,
Kansas and Nebraska from collecting : i
state tax on the rolling stock of the co
rnoration. A full review of the position
tttknnby the company in this matter lias al
ready appeared in the Hni : , and no further
extended mention of the case is needed.
The state of Kansas was represented bv
Attorney ( Jcnoral Bradford. General
Cowin was to have appeared for Douglas-
county , but as he was trying a case be-
I'oro Judge Duiidy , could not bo present.
Baker , attorney general of Iowa , was not
on hand , having been delayed by the
storm. He telegraphed , however , that
ho was coining.
The Pullman company was represented
by its principal solicitor , Mr. Altrcd
Ennis , of Chicago , assisted by Air. Berry ,
of the same place. Mr. A. J. Popplcton
was also present as n sort of corns of in
spection lor the Union Pacilic , but took
no part in the argument.
The company's claim in resisting the
state tax levied by Kansas was pro-
bcuted by Mr. Berry in a long bill , the
reading of which consumed ten
minutes. Mr. Berry stated that the
bills in tlio application for injunction
against Iowa and Nebraska were sub
stantially the same as tlio one he had
read.
read.Mr.
Mr. Berry , who made tlio opening argu
ment , stated tlio company based its de
mand for an injunction on tlie ground
Hint the corporation transacted an inter
state commerce , and that its cars trav
eled through ditl'eront states and were
local to no one state.
The tax which it is bought to enforce
against tlio company in Onnlia and
Douglas county amounts to $3,800. Two
other counties along the line ot the Mis-
bouri Pacilic , south of this county , claim
n tax against the corporation , the aggre
gate in the state being $12,000.
After hearing tlie case Judge Brewer
granted a restraining order in the cases
brought from Kansas until December 12.
The Iowa cases were taken under advise-
inent. In the Ncbnihka cases the court
issued a temporary injunction. The dual
hearing of the case will come up tit the
next term of the court.

Taylor was sontenood to thirty days on

said ho would not toll whore the clothes
had been sold. Twenty days of his sen
tence arc now past , and the bread
and water diet has so subdued Taylor's
obstinacy that ho bi-gged for
a chance to tell the whereabouts of the
stolen property , on condition that the
ether tun days of bread and water diet ,
should bo remitted. This Judge Ston
berg consented to , and yesterday Taylor

sold the clothes at the second-hand store

avoid dragging the matter into the courts.
It is further stated that in compliance
with this de'inj Mr. Jones has already

He had nothing to sav in the promises ,
and said that if Mr. Jones wanted to talk

This plan did not seem satisfactory , and
accordingly Mr. Jones endeavored to
have held a mooting , with J. U. Mogoath

How to Get Kid of .
Family Physician : The arsenic treat
ment is well adapted for warts. The top
of the wart should cither bo sliced oil
with a sharp Knife , cut oil' with a pair of
scissors or destroyed with a drop of some
caustic , such as nitric acid. It is then to
bo painted with the arsenic solution two
or three times a day. In a short time it
umjergocsa change and appears to break
up into a number of pieces. It may then
bo removed or turned out without the
slightest pain or dilliculty. There are
several other means of getting rid of
warts. Their vitality is low , and they are
usually readily destroyed by the applica
tion of the caustic or astringent. The
strong ascetic acid Known as the "glacial' '
ascetic acid is often used for this purpose.
It should bo applied with a glass rod
until the wart is pretty well sodden
with the acid. It may have to bo ap
plied more than once , and care should
bo taken to prevent it from coming in
contact with the surrounding skin , or it
may cause a blister. Small warts occur
ring in numbers may usually bo got rid
of certainly and p-unlessly by keeping
them coiistantlymoist with u lotion made
by adding two drams of dilute nitric acid
to a pint of water. Lunar caustic is
sometimes used for warts , but its action
is , as a rule , too superficial to be of iniiuh
service. When warts or warty growths
occur on the nose , lips or any part besides -
sides the hands chromic acid may bo
used. The solution is made by dissolv
ing 100 grains of orystali/.ed chromic
acid in an ounce of water. J'ho solution
is best applied by aid of a pointed glass
rod , or. when a largo quantity is re
quired , by means of a small glass tube
drawn to a point. Only so much should
bo applied ns will saturate tlio
diseased growth , and it should not bo
brought in contact with the surrounding
tissues. Any superlluons acid is to bo re
moved by u piece of blotting paper or
wet lint. The application usually pro
duces only a little temporary smarting ,
unless , indeed , the part is ulcerated , whun
the pain is more severe anil of loiver
duration. After the application of the
chromic aci-.J it is a good plan to ilivss
the part with lint dipped in lead lotion ,
as it relieves the sorenu a and restrains
the mil-animation. Under tiio inlliieiico
of this treatment tlio growth usvully
rapidly wastes , in some cases being
Llirown off altogether , and in others
undergoing a partial though distinct
diminution in si/.e. In thu majority of
uases one application sullices , the cure
uomg complete in from four to eight
lays. Whun , however , the waits are
very large , repeated applications may bo
necessary.
DIAMOND s7
\n Advance in Thuir Kiu-opcnn Value
Tliut Will Soon bo Felt Hero.
Now \V.rk Sun ; A recent telegram from
'uropo annouiKCd "a great revival in
ho diamond trade of Urtissois" snd great
laics of .diamonds to America. 'So finas
ouuerned a revival of the diamond trade
lout-rally in Knropo that is all right , but
Mr. DrcyfusD , who is credited wiili know-
ng all tliyt is to Lu known of tlio di
aond business that "Urns ' ' *
, says ? ls 0
more a market than isNcw York. There
are only two groat1 markets , Amsterdam
and Antwerp , and i next to them stand
Paris and London. But it is quite true
that not only lsthc.ro a gratifying activity
jn the diamond trade , but a noteworthy
increase in values. Thcso most precious
of stones arc worth now , in the European
markets , llftcen to Iwcuty pur emt more
than they were a month ago. They had
been appreciating gradually for a yeiu
past , but have made their principal jump
within a few weeks. As yet this advance
Is hardly felt on this side of the watcr.but
it will bo just ns peen ns the importers
have to replace their present stock by
new purchases in Europe. There are still
hero dealers who have cheap lots on
hand that they can sell low at prolit , and
others who arc compelled to sell ir
respective of rising values , but tlio pop
ular demand \\ill soon exhaust those
sources of supply and remove thulr inllu-
cnco in keeping the market down , and
then if tlio present European tendency
continues diamonds may come to bo re
garded as an expensive luxury.
"A letter received lioro the other day
from ouo of the principal Parisian deal
ers says that ho lias sold off his entire
stock of diamonds on hand at much
larger prices than ho over expected to
gi't , bill if ho had to replace them ho
could not do . o for even n greater sum.
"There are reasons for the iirosent rise
in the value of diamonds , although both
come to the same thing the falling offin
their production. Tlio first is. that dur
ing the \\ititor season at Ilio Capo there
is annually a greatly diminished produc
tion , oven when there is nothing to dis
turb the icgular coin-so of events ; the
second , that tno south African gold
fields have attracted to them great num
bers of tlio minors formerly employed in
the diamond mines , and llfal these arc no
longer operated to their full capacity.
Thu actual cost of production is just
about what it was whun these diamond
fields were lirst developed , for. if thu cost
of mining has increased with tlie deepening -
ing of the mines , as it lias to the uxtuiitof
some 25 per cunt , that is fully offset by
tliu reduced cost of travel and transpor
tation to and from the diamond mines.
That thu Brazilian diamond minus have
yielded comparatively little in latu years ,
is a fact already well known. And , by
the way , the fanciful distinction in
favor of 'old mine stones' no
jongur exists , except in thu ardent
imaginations of Ouida and other
story writers , and in tlie easy credence
accorded by their rentiers. Dealers only
consider the color and perfection of the
stone submitted for their judgment , and
where it comus from. A hue blue-white
stonu is a fine blue-white stone , whether
it comes from Hni7.il or from Africa. Af
rican diamonds were rated low at first ,
because nearly all of the earliest that hail
entered the market were off color , but
since then other and better deposits have
been found , and some of the finest stones
in the market to-day are from tlio cape.
"The importation of diamonds is al
ways greatest at this season , when the
jewelry trade is most brisk , but is larger
than usual this year , and the Christmas
diamonds will probably be higher in
price than they ever before were here.
The private persons who make their pur
chases abroad 'because it is tlio prouer
thin" to buy one's diamonds in Paris or
London , you know,1 are now paying very
much higher prices lor them over there
than thuy would hnvc lo nay here , even
with the duties honestly paid. "
