filed with the secretary of slate yesterday ,
noticeable among lliem being tlio bond of
,1. H. Ager , of Ord , Valley county , who Is
Mr. Babcock's appointee as secretary of
the railroad commission. Mr. Ager's
name is unknown to fame as yet in stale
mailers or In regard to special fitness in
regard to the position , but as the commis
sion is a feeble infant , absolutely without
power , prestige or the first elements of
worth so far as the public Is concerned ,
the matter of appointment is of little
question in any event. Secretary of Slate
Laws has evidently not made his appoint
ment , yet , and It is apparently an open
qiic.slion yet whether Judge Mason will
Jin retained , Gore rovarnlshed Into life ,
or a new man entirely be named for the
place. The bond filed by J. ll. Ager is
in amount $10,000 , signo.il by himself and
Messrs. P. Mortcnsen , Thomas L. Harris ,

The founder of nncienl Homo Rave
way to excusable passion because his
brother joked him about tliu height of its
walls , which ho could leap over. The
City of Ihu Seven Hills has nevertheless
become n central point of Interest for
the entire world , and its name will figure
in every history until the hand of the
last hi.-itorian shall have written the ever
lasting "Finis" for his racn. In much
the same way men made fun of Omaha
and its shortcomings when mud was
king , but now scu It rising like a crea
tion of the conjuror's ninglc wand.
It has often been heard from croakers ,
who arc to be found in every city , that
Omnha was not to meet the expectations
of its founders , but not only has It far
surpassed them , but to-day casts the
shadows of its loftier spires imon-anothcr
city that has sprung up by Its side.
Surely South Omaha has had : i most re
markable record , and yet it seems
scarcely to have started in the
race it Is running with its
older sister. When tno svndlcato
three .years ago , bought up tlio most
beautiful farms in the richest county of
Nebraska and established the Union
Stock yards in the center , they were
building butter than they knew. Now
ho busy yards lire surrounded by a
magic city whose people liavo biiilt'for
ihomsclvcs homes aim homos thatdottho
liillsldeji in every ilirecllon and have
changed the once quiet little valley to n
bceno not less beautiful for being full of
bustle ami activity. For two years , however -
over , the finest portion of all the tract
owned by the syndicate hns not been
available. These lands have all been
platted and will to-day bo placed on the
market , the exclusive agency for them
laving been given to C. L. Mayno , muter
ivhoso control some of the most valuable
and desirable properties in the city and its
'iiburbs liavo been developed. . This is
lews that will bo eagerly read by those
nicrestcd in the welfare and prosperity
of South Omaha , and of this city itself ,
is the two will soon bo built logollicr
mil become ono. As overv ono knows
the laud now for the flrsl luno open for
iMirchasers is the fairest of all that fair
ract originally bought by the syndicate.
That il will cause a general rush in that
lirection no one can fora moment doubt' .
The building sites are without a superior
n all the suburbs of Ihocity. Mr. Mayno
ighlly considers that lie has never taken
lold of any real cstalo lhat promised lo
meet with such general public favor and
to give such satisfaction in return. It
seems to be without a single fealuro that
is other than desirable. The IncKicst and
inosl propitious event that has been re
corded for the city in many months is
this opening up of South Omaha syndi
cate land to the public and the boom be
ginning will result in increasing the
value of every foot of ground between
the slock yards and Iho Omaha post-
Mr. Mayno has his plals all finished
and they can be seen nt his oflico at any
time. Thuy will show some of the finest
evidence lots anywhere , ' which will bo
n great demand for aristocratic man
sions as well as the comely cottage of the
workir.gman. No time should bo lost in
ixaminiug into this matter , and certainly
10 one can afford lo lose so fine an in-
Yuslmeiit as is hero offered.

A RELK3 OF THE PAST.
A T lo of a MurdiT a Century Old
Found in n Musty Tonic.
In a dark corner of the I'itt burg law
library , says the I'ittsbtirir Dispatch , are
piled a number of old and musty volumes i
of legal law , but little used , tlio science s
of obtaining or delaying justice having
advanced since they" were authorities.
While looking through one of these books
Friday , Librarian i' . G. Digby discovered ,
neatly folded , a time-stained sheet of
vellum , inscribed in ancient Dutch char
acters. The document is apparently an
ollici'.il transcript of a criminal trial at
Haarlem , in Holland , in 1707. A free
translation of the manuscript , divested of
le al verbiage , brings to light a ease of
circumstantial evidence , which resulted
disastrously , not only to the accused , butte
to tlio city of Haarlem.
Godfried Yoho , a Westphalian boor , or
clown , was pursuing his way to Amster
dam in search of more profitable em
ployment than Ills own country allbrdcd
at that period. It happened that the
party of immigrants with whom ho had
traveled slopped to drink at a wayside
tavern in Haarlem Wood , where ho soon
became so completely intoxicated that
they laid him under a tree asleep , and
left him to gel along as he could when he
Great was his terror ami inexpressible 1
his ama'/cuiont when , upon awaking , the )
poor wanderer saw about him a number
of men dressed in blue and wearing sil
ver hiked swords , and hearing himself
accused of having robbed and murdered
a merchant. Greater still was his horror
and afVright on seeing that the blade and
hilt of his knife were besmeared with I
blood : that his right hand was bloodyand I
that In his pockets was found property
which was known to liavo belonged to thu
murdered man. 1I
Thu terror ami confusion ho manifested 1i I
wcro naturally interpreted

Yoho was broght to trial , The compan

drunk and neither able to stand nor walk

public prosecutor contended that ho had
arisen in a state of fren/.y , had robbed
and murdered tie | merchant , and , being
unable to proceed , hud staggered back to

The result was that Yoho was condemned
to die , anil after having been tortured to

The fate ot the poor German had long
been forgotten when , upon a gantr of
desperntu robbers and murderers being
detected in Golderlund , and just as thuy
were led out to execution , two of them
confessed the crime for which Godfrieil
Yoho had suffered at Haarlem.
The criminals , In their joint confession ,
stateil that as they were waiting the ar

would puss along near about that time
on his way from Loinmor to Amsterdam ,
they noticed the German boors anil the

Pall Mall Ga/ello : Autograph collect
ing Is one of the most harmless as well
as ihe most , interesting of hobbles , and
when n celebrated person takes to keep
ing an album of anlouraphs a collection
of mete than usual value Is likely to be
the result. It is not generally known
that among others who share this weak
ness is that greatest of sinners , Mini ) .
Adrlina Patti. For many years past no
friend of any distinction has boon nor-
milted to pass tlin threshold of the prima
donna until ho or she has written a few
words upon Mine. Patti herself or upon
some otluT subject of interests. Tliu
consequence is that the signatures of al
most ever notability both in and ouUsido
the musical world are to bo found in ono
ot hcralbums , while , besides these are
many letters of well known composers
and musicians which Mine. 1'atti has had
prosontud to her or has liursulf purchased.
Of these are letters from Mo/.art , Beet
hoven , Chopin aud other illustrious ones.
Many extracts could be given from
thcpo albums : wo will now , however
merely give the following , which
wo trust the gifted soiurstress
will forgive us for publishing.
The first is from Kossini , and is dated
February 10. 1801. He writes : ' "Tis an
easy and pleasant task which you liavo
set me namely , to jot don at random
a thought or two in your album. There
are then three things which 1 shall over
do first , admlro yon personally ; sec
ondly , marvel intensely at your talent ;
and lastly be unto dentil your most faith
ful and grateful friend , G. Rossini. "
Meyerbeer is much more formal and stifl.
"I beg of you , ho writes , "to accept this
as a tribute of my respectful homage and
my profound admiration. " Berlioz on
the other hand is characteristically witty.
"How am I to tianslato oportet puti ? It
has been variously rendered , you know.
Pedantic scholars would have us believe
it means , 'Sufl'uring is the lot of man. '
Not so say the jolly monks ; opovtol pati
is simply , 'Bring iilther ( npportuz ) Iho
pate , ' while with a still nearer approach
to truth I with all true lovers of music
and sontr , say it means , 'It is impossible
to exist without Patti' ' "
RUSHING TO DEATH.
In the attempt to swim the Niagara whirl

Thes-c diseases can be cured by the u e

stillness out of the joints of my fmgcre ,
which I had been troubled with so long.
Murray. J.Cochran , Denison , Iowa , says :
'It is now two years since I used Athlophos

At the time I used this medicine I was crip
