The writer of this article , while strolling about
the city recently , hnd Ills attention attracted to a
gang of men who ucro laying a granolithic aldo-
wal kononeot our prominent streets mul stopped
to watch the operation , which Is quite Interest

quaintance ot one or the men. to whom the
writer U Indebted for the following narrative
which Is wholly true , and can bo stjliUantlatod ,
The f'uUeman In question Is Mr. John Tried ,
of No. 1213Cnss street , ho works at present for
the Van Court nnd Ilcnedlct I'avlns company.
Sir. Tried , lias lived In Nebraska tor over seven
years nnd for nearly folir years Lo has lived In
Omaha , for three years ho how vorkiul for tlio
Omaha Harb Wire oriinpimy.lmvlnc recently left
their employ , to work for the Paving company.
Mr. Tried says : "Tor more than five years I
have boon , a terrible siitlorer.my head seemol to
bo aching constantly , cApcvlally botwren the
eyes , nndmy nose would stop uj . lin t on ono
side , then on the other , often liuth nostrlU. Then
I began to notice singular noil's In niyems
roaring or buzzing sounds they appeared to mete
to be. und sometimes sounds luu whistling and
hammering. About this time my thiout also lie-
gnn to glvu ma a great deal of tioublo. I would
always bo hawking and hemming and trying to
clear my throat , often raising llttlu hard lumps.
nomctlmCH of n greenish , at other times of ayel-
1 would often have pains in the chest , extending -
tending to the right shouldur blade. When
drawing a long breath 1 could hear a kind of
vrhaezlng noise in my chest. Anil homutlmiks It
would seem to mo as If I wa .irenthlng through
n sponge I Boomed to bo able to hear thu air
paHsiun through , t begat to fear Umt I was
going into consumption I was moro tlrmly
convinced of this when bafora long. I com
menced to cough n kind uf hollow cough. Tli-
sharp puliiH in -chest would extend aroum.
to the small of my back.
"Try to prevent It as 1 might , I was forever
catching fre-'h cold. 1 never vras without them.
Mucus would run from my nose , nml ntiltofro-
nneutly my nose would bleed. At my work I
have to stfxip orer ipilte frequently , and when I
did so I would boiouio dizzy and everything
nccmcd to swim but'oro my eyes. Ai night my
Hlocp did not refresh mo at all , and In the mom-
Ing would frol im tired and languid iifl when I
wont to bed.
"My stomach was nITuctod. too. I would sit
down to the table with what seemed a good up-
potlto , Imtuftera mouthful or two my appetite
would leave me. Everything would sem to
sour on my stomach. Tliei u would hi- almost

und my limbs would ache as If 1 had done some
very heavy work ,
I had heard considerable talk about thesuccess

the testimonial * published In the dally papers

nrti.il ! hopes , however , for I had tried seven dlf-
terrnt nlijHlrinns and tried ubont a barrel ot
patent medicines and was about discouraged. I
vNltcd his ollka In Kamgu block und consulted
him. After u careful examination he told me I
luul catarrh nnd that he could treat me. snc-
res f nlly for It. I was Impressed with the Idea
that ho knew his business and started treatment
und I have not been a bit * orry that I did , for

Grand Island , Neb. , Is only twenty-
two years old , her ml von t being in Uio

holding fourth , if not third place of any
city in the state in population , and
Btnnds at the head of cities ol her class
in respect to railroad , manufactory , etc.
Grand Island , llall county , Neb. , lies
situate 151 miles west of Omaha , in the
very heart of the broad nnd tortile val
ley of the Platte , vrlioro her commer
cial advantaged are unlimited. The
Platte valluy extends hundreds of miles
to the westward , upwards of 200 miles to
the enbtwnrd mid varies from 50 to 10D
miles in width. This valley iibounda
with the finest of agricultural lands ,
rich , black sandy soil and isunquestion-
ubly the most productive section * of
the western country , and Grand Island'
being the receiving , shipping and dis
tributing point for this section , cer
tainly enjoys a commercial advantage
which is , and always will be , the envy
of her sister cities and the great bono
nnd sinew of her porinnncncy and pros
perity in the future. Taking the usual
method of computing populations from
the city directory , Grand Island must
hnvo considerably over 12,000 popula
tion now , and at the rate of increase
falnco ISSli will hnvo fully 14.000 by Jan
uary 1,1839. Grand Island is exceed
ingly fortuntitoin her railway facilities.
Slio has the main line of the Union Pa
cific railway running with connections
from the Atlantic to the Pacific coasts.
She has the B. & M. railway running
from Chicago via Omaha and Lincoln

Pacilic have both surveyed their lines
and obtained depot grounds at this
point. The capital invested by all the
different railway companies at this
point will exceed $1,500,000. The total
receipts nnd shipments of the above
lines of railways utGrand Island during
the year 1887 will aggregate about
12,000 cur loads or iMO.000,000 pounds of
all kinds of freight. This is a most ex

A mOst unhappy misconception of the
true character of the young ompcror

ils father , has found expression
n some American papers , nnd , as BOIIIO
ecitnls como to mo from some who uro
certainly cognizant of the real facts , it
seems a duty to sot thorn forth. Begin
ning with the religious side of his char
acter , it is stated that ho came under
, ho sweet Influences ot his Aunt Alice
while ho was at college at Bonn , and
, his brought him into conflict with the
unorthodox views of his mother. This
udy has expressed herself as being un
interested in any of the "myths of Chris
It was the unskillfulncss of the En-
rlish nccoucher , which resulted in the
nfant prince being brought into the
world with ono helpless arm ; but in
other respects than this ho is a man of
, ho finest physique , able to llro his gun
with ono arm. When. then , his mother
sought to surround his wife with En
glish attendants at the time of her con-
inomont ho mmlo a clean swoop of the
whole. During the illness of his father
at San Rome ho was torn by the con
flict ol his duty to stay by his
grandfather and learn the func
tions of practical government ,
ind hia alTcction , which led
liim to the aldo of his father. Hardly
anyone could have gone through a
greater strain than ho did during these
painful circumstances. Late last fall
Lho drdcr waa passed in the Imperial
Council which would make him regent
in case of the disability or absence of
his father or grandfather ; and this
order , promulgated two days before the
death of the Ktnporor William , was ono
of the first orders roafllrmcd by his
Tied to the urgent duty of his ofllcial
position at Berlin and the proper atten
dance on his grandfather , ho was the
Srst to recelvohis , father on his arrival
trom lUily , and. entering the car , the
tearful interview between the two was
affectionate in'the extreme. Nor could
there be a Vnoro cruel and unfounded
slander thati that ho stayed at Berlin to
look out for Ilia own interests ; for while
sacriliciug personal feeling by his ab
sence from his parent , ho could not ad
vance his own jn any way by being In
Berlin , except only if it can bo said that
one advances their interests by a con
scientious discharge of duty. Chough a
young mam of' solid mental qualities
and of most excellent acquirements ,
those last months have given him a
characteristic of solemnity and serious
ness which eminently befit a man soon
to be called to exorcise so awful a func
tion ! ia that of pmperorof Germany.
The antagonisms ho has are towards
the headstrong , unwise and wilful be
havior of MB mother , who , though of
the house of Hanover and daughter of
a German presumed to give forth the
idea that sno had demeaned herself by
marrying into the family of the Honcn-
zollerns. With the instincts of her
mother , she has hold back from spend
ing or investing in Germany a penny of
the money she receives as her pension.
When in 1870 there was a reaction
against French ideas and a strong , dis
position to take up with English ones ,
instead of taking pleasure in becoming
ono with her husband's family and his
nation , she violently sot herself against
thorn , nnd has succeeded in alienating
the national feeling from herself and
from persons and things English.
In undertaking o thwart the wishes
of her father-in-law she brought her
self into open conflict with him , and by
antagonizing her mother-in-law she lost
all bympathy with her. By persisting
in keeping Mackenzie in attendance
upon her husband and having his diag
nosis of the disease acted upon , she has
lost a husband and the good feeling of a
nation. Last May Dr. Bergman n
pronounced the disease can
cer , and staked his professional
standing on being able to excise the
growth without Frederick losing the
ability of bpcoch. Thus the Germans
fool tfmt their beloved Frit/ has been
sacrificed to the willfulness of this unwise
wisewoman. . The attempt of one per
son to opK [ > so a whole nation , especially
when this antagonism is wrong noaded ,
has ended in miserable ami mortifying
defeat. Even the llsh women of Berlin
are said to save their stale fish as they
say , for the now empress. On the con
trary , the young Emperor William
and his attractive wife are entirely on
rapport with the nation , and as crown
was the especial favorite of the
ite emperor , and in so now of all the
Germans. The young man is most
successful in the fulfillment of his
arduous duties , while his wife is hold in
affectionate admiration by the people
for her sweetness of mnnnor and her
devotion to beneficent work for the poor.

Notes and Queries ; A man was once
walking along ono road and a woman
along aiuthor. Tlio roads finally unit

junction at | the fciuno time , walked on
from there i togothor. The man was
carrying a largo iron kettle on his back ,
in ono liand hb hold by the legs a Iivo
chicken , in thd other a cano , and ho
was leading a goat. Just as they were
coming to a Uoopdark ravine the wom
an said to the inan : "I'm afraid to go
through that ravine with you ; it is a
lonely place , and you might overpower -
power me and kiss mo by force. "
"If you iworo afraid of that , "
eaid the man , " 'you shouldn't

I possibly overpower you and kiss you
by force when I have this great iron
kettle on my back , a cano in ono hand ,
a live chicken in ULC other and am
leading this goat ? I might as well bo
tied hand and foot. " ' "Yes , " replied
the woman , "but if you should btick
your cano in the ground and tie the
goat to it , nnd turn the kettle bottom
sldeupund put the chicken into it ,
then you might wickedly kids mo in
snito of my resistance. "Success to
thy ingenuity , oh woman ! " &aid the ro-
joiclng man to himself , ' 'I should never

when they came to the.ravine ho btuck

A Rochester , N. Y. , dispatch savs :
' Could Ingrolioa , the noted Italian
musician and Bcholnr , visit this city in
the llosh , ho would no doubt bo auito
surprised to learn that bo was acting as
musical director for a young lady of so
cial prominence in this city , who is
considered by many a musical prodigy.
But such is claimed to be the case. Hof-
mnnn created no tnoro surprise in New
York by his wonderful execution on the
piano , than has the Flower City prod-
igv with her voice. The young lady is
Miss Lulu Billings , daughtorwf Eton
G. Billings , who was for nearly
twenty-fivo years connected with the
Erie railway in this city.
The young Indy will take her seat at
the piano , and after n few nervous
movements , passes into a trance state ,
during which she sings the moat beau
tiful and diHicnlt songs. The wonderful -
ful and astonishing feature of all is
that she sings in iivo different lan
guages , and has never , while in a
tronco , boon known to sing in English ,
the only language she speaks , llor
knowledge- music is rudimentary , her
mother being her only tutor , and her
skill as an instrumentalist is by no
means above the nverngo of many girls
of eighteen years of ngo , yet her ac
companiments while in the trance state
are beautiful in the oxtrotno.
A Phantom Burial.
A writer in the Mncon ( On. ) Tele
graph says : Some years ngo , when I
was a schoolboy , attending school at
Calvary , Ga. , I , in company with ono of
my cousins , witnessed one of the most
wonderful of spirit processions.
'Twas on Friday afternoon , in the
spring of the year , und wo wore on out-
way from school. We came down the
road , laughing and talking together.
We wore just opposite the graveyard ,
at the Primitive Baptist church , ( Pied
mont ) , whore wo witnessed ono of the
grandest burials imaginable. Just in
front of usiu silent as moonlight , came
the burial procession. On , on , it camo.
first the corpse in a blue wagon drawn
by two white mulos. Then the mourn
ers in black. Then the rest of the pro
cession in all the colors of the rainbow ,
moving with silent tread to the grove
which burrounds the yard. Coining to
the grove they halted , lifted the colHn
from the wagon , lowered it into the
grave and tilled it. Then , re-entering
their wagons and buggies , all of them
moved oil , passing over graves , trees
and everything else in the way. The
whole procession then disappeared like
a mist. Wo knew all the neoplo , and
know whom hey buried. When it dis
appeared wo wont homo in n , hurry und
told my mother about it , Hho would
not let us lull Uncle J. and his wife , bo-
cuuao it was their little girl that wo saw
buried. She was at the time , to my
certain knowledge , well and hearty.
Before Saturday night she wnb n corpse ,
and she was uurried to the eravo 1'n

A Pomeroy ( O.Special ) to Cincinnati
Enquirer says : Your correspondent bus
boon furnished the following particu
lars of ono of the strangest affairs that
over occurred in thin suction :
The neighborhood of Irwin Creek ,
Molgs county , has boon greatly excited
in roiiboqiioni'o of the discovery of start
ling ghostly phantoms and strange
spiritual manifestations , The family of
William Marshall , shortly after moving
to thut locality , began to notice unusual
freaks in the way of mysterious voices
und singular cries of distress. But lit
tle attention , however , wa paid to any
ff ; those strange phenomena , until ono
evening Mrs. Mur3luttl un elderly lady ,
wont to the front part of the house , and ,
as she stood gazing through the window
to the public highway there appeared a
figure before the glass. At the sight of
the object Mrs. Marshall screamed and
fell back in terror , ahoutinir that a. man
on the outuide had made motions to
strike her. Soverul of the family in
stantly rushed out of thodoorbut failed
to discover anything , thought it was
impossible for an individual to have se
creted himselTor got out of sight. The
window being approached , n second
time by another member of the family
the same occurrence was repeated and
ono of the sons instantly rocogni/cd the
countenance of an enemy with whom he-
luul a. quarrel a few days previous and
who had threatened his life. The fea
tures and expressions were plainly visi
ble and remained so for n long time and
the picture gave the impression that the
owner's temper was in a terrible state
The family became intensely
frightened. The next night the same
likeness reappeared on the _ glas > s , and
the attention of friond.s was directed to
it until the whole neighborhood wit
nessed the spectacles with great curios
ity. But the most singular part of the
alfnir came to light a short time after
ward , when it was revealed that the in
dividual whoso face was shown in the
window had devised a plot by which to
kill the"eldest son of the Marshall fam
ily , but the discovery of the face at the
window put the latter on his guard , and
prevented the tragical occurrence.
A few nights after the appearance of
the face in the window strange noibob
were heard in different portions of the
house , and the Mnrshnlls became
greatly annoyed for theirsafoty. Those
noises grew tnoro demonstrative , and
bricks fell from the ceiling , doors
slammed , and lire bramls were Hung
around in various directions. A young
lady member of the household was con
siderably injuied by n Hying piece of
wood that came from some unknown
source nnd struck her on the head , in-
llicting quite a painful wound.
The bccond son nlbo had ono of the
most singular adventures while return
ing from Athens , O. , about 12 o'clock at
night. When within ono and a half
miles of homo , and while ho was emerg
ing from the edge of a forest , suddenly
lie heard the clatter of hoofs , and im
mediately there sprung ncross the road
in front of him n lingo white horse ,
bearing a rider whoso color wns liery
red , nnd making frightful bounds over
the earth , they disappored in a twink-
ing. The sight of this phantom horse
and rider almost drove young Marshall
wild with fright , nnd on reaching his
relatives ho was as pale as death , trem
bling and speechless.
The next morning , in company with
some friends , young Marshall returned
to the spot and measured the distance
between the horse's footprints , showing
the jump iicroad the roadway to 1m lifty
Occasionally the family would ho dis-

Still nnothor horrible specter np-
poured to the family. Lnto ono dark
night an unusually bright light shone
into the front part of the Miir.ihall
dwelling and a Htrnngo sound startled
the slocporri. Springing from tiioir
couches they t > avv a huge while bird
with uionhtrons outstretched wings mov
ing to and fro in front of the building ,
and nt intervals screaming hideously.
This huge-winged rnoiiHtor continued
its movements for the space of half an
hour , und the members of the family ,
appalled with terror , hied themselves
to the darkest nooks and oornoru , bomo
of thorn refusing to oomo out until long
after brood daylight , Neighbor * aver

The next day the Marshall family

The house they occupied is deserted
and lonely , nnd no ono can bo found
who will venture to take possession of
it. The people of that vicinity who
have occasion to pass the building after

apparitions can still bo scon there.
