from the city and desertion of h'ls family
bring * to light n romuutla ktory pf lov'e and
Kullt thftt ia a fcou.rro of antonlthuieot tahli

Two yean ago Frank , full of ambitious
for the future , loft } h o futhcrlund to
seek his fortune in America. On the snmo
steamer on which ho sailed wns n German
couple named Mr. nnd Mrs. Hlncsmun , who
nl 'word bound for the prosperous land of
freedom. Mra. Hinesinau was u charming
and petite young woman , and Frank , who
became Infatuated with her , managed
to pass considerable of his time
with her whllo on shipboard.
She. too , very indiscreetly allowed herself
to fall In love with the handsome young
Prussian. At Cnstlo Garden they parted ,
Mrs. Hlncsmaii settling with her husband In
Now York stnto whllo Fnink Paul eamo
west , finally establishing himself in business
in Omuha.
Fortune smiled on him nnd ho yearned fern
n female puitncr to share- his prosperity.
The daring scheme of writing to Mrs.
Hlncsmun und asking her to desert her hus
band nnd Ily to him suggested Itself In his
mind. To think was to act nnd ho was
thrilled a week later by receiving
a letter from her npprovlng the
scheme and telling him she would
come ns snon ns she got sulllcicnt money to
buy n ticket to Omuha. The next mull east
carried n money order suniclent to pay carfare
faro und other expenses to the Gate City. A
week later found the illicit lovers united and
they commenced to llvo together us man nnd
wifo. Frame's friends supposed that the
two hud been innrticd for some time , she
meanwhile living in the east whllo ho came
west to make a home for her.
Mrs. Hlncsman had covered her tracks
so effectually that her husband never learned
to what place she hud ilnwn. She
and Mr. Paul have been living together
ever since , on Thirteenth Htroet , part of
the time near Lcuvcnworth , and about a
year ago n child was born to the guilty pair.
Slnco then hw pseudo-husband has become
cool und even cruel toward her , mistreating
her In various ways and neglecting to
properly provide for hur , although ho wns
umplv ublo. A few days since ho suddenly
disappeared und no news whatever concern
ing him am bo learned. Mrs. Hinesman , now
repentant of her sinful relations with him ,
declares'that she Is suffering u Just retribu
tion for her course. Paul has loft her ia nl-

In order to secure a correct answoi to
the above , the writer should have boon
more explicit in regard to the insect
which lias caused the devastation. The
damage may have boon caused by half
a do/.on different species of pest , and
therefore only a general suggoslion
may bo made as to the remedy. Ono of
Iho"best remedies for destroying the in
sect enemies of the apple Irco is lo
shower Iho tree with a bolulion of paris
green or london purple , mixing at the
[ ate of a tablespoon ful to a gallon of
water , and applying freely by means of
a force hump with a spray nozzle. The
puniDS for this purpose are so cheap
now that every farmer should have ono.
They are convenient not only for this
use , but for many ptner purposes about
the farm. Many insect posts can bo de
stroyed or driven away by the shower
ing procobs , oven when only cold water
is used. Bettor still , when it is de
sired , to mix poison , kerosene or other
substance which is offensive to the in-
Bccls with the water.

A Purty Way to Talk to a. Pore lionn
A wcathor-boalon woman of melan
choly and dibcouragcd mien sat in front
of a drummer on a railroad train. She
was clad in rusty mourning and her ap
pearance indicated that her loss was
recent. When near to Chicago she
turned lo Hie drummer and asked :
"What place are wo coming to next ? "
"Chicago , madam. "
"Lomino BOO ; that's in Illinoy , ain't
"Yes certainly. "
' 'I'd ort to know , but I'd forgot I ben
in Illinoy. I buried my first husband
there 'bout twenty years ago. "
'Indeed ? "
"Yes ; and from Illinoy I wont to
loway. I buried my second man out in
loway , and I ain't been there scnco.
That was eighteen years ago. Wont

"Oil , did you ? I'vo boon thoro' "
"You hov ? Ever boon to a place

"Who was Air. DoJHon ? "
"My third man ; and a right smart
follor ho was. IIo had a cousin named
Hi Daggott. Ever run across Hi ? "
"I think not. . "
"You'd know if you had. Everybody
liked Hi. Him and mo TV.-.S married in
Gcorgy , and he's buried nine miles
from Atlanty. "
"Oh , indeed ! and do you live in
Georgia now ? "
" ! Ain't set foot there for
moro'n a dozen yours. I wont from
Gcorgy away up to Minnsoty , anil I mot
Tom Ilixon up there. "
"Tom IIlxouV"
"Yes ; him and mo lived most a year
there after wo were married ; then a
blam'cd old white mule wo had kicked
Tom bo fatally that I buried him ono
cold day under the snow , up near St.
Paul , and sold off and wont out to Kan-
sag , near Atchisou , and luk up a quarter
section of luud iinin' a real smart

"And you "
"Yes , I married Dill , and ho took
chills and fpvor 'foro thrno months and
loft mo a widow 'foro the next year was

luck. "
"I should think so. "

Now York Times : The big operating
room in the Western Union telegraph
wilding was almost quiet. It is never
entirely still from year's end to year's
end , but sometimes , an the gray Btreaks
> f dawn steal up over the harbor , across
ho roofs of less lofty buildings and into
.ho top windows of the telegraph com-

'cleared" his wire may bo seen with his
inns on his table and his head btnyed

indicates that he i resting in sleet ) .
In other parts of the spacious room little
groups of operators whoso wires are
clear , gather together to talk "shop , "
or to exchange rominihcont talcs of por-
ml experiences , of adventure , rom-
uico , or misfortune , all of which come
lo most operators at some time or other ,
rho voices of the talkers are never
heard beyond their own circle , for oven
in a lull there are always a Milllcient
number of armatures in motion to drown
in ordinary conversational tone.
The room was almost quiet when a
tow inorningsagoan ox-operator walked
in to renew faomo old acquaintances.
Notwithstanding that a dozen years had
passed since ho hud boon ween by many
D { the men on duty , ho was recogni/.ed
by a half do/.en whom ho had mot in
various parts of the coimtrv. In the
first group ho encountered were "Les"
Uradloy of New Orleans , 'Mud" Thomp
son of Omaha , Ilarrv Whalon of Phila
delphia and "Aleck" Morribon of Salt
Lake City. The ox-opciMtor. like the
rest of the grouphad boon a "traveler , "
and the four old-timers , whom ho had
mot in widely separated olllces of the
company , jumped up to greet him. The
greetings over , the party of course be-
.fiin exchanging reminiscences.
"Do old " eaid
you remember , man ,
one , 'tho time when old Jim Doody
traveled first class from Omaha to Now
York on a dollar ? " The older men had
heard the storyjbut the younger ones
who were listening had not , but wanted
to. so the speaker continued :
' 'It was by means of tho'lost hat' trick ,
which Jim invented for the , occasion.
Jim and a lot of us wore working for the
Atlantic & Pacific company in Omaha
in 1877 , whoa a consolidation of the
Western Union and Atlantic & Pacific
companies was effected. As a means
of economy the Western Union company
ran the Atlantic fc Pacilic wires into
its own oflico and discharged all of the
Atlantic & Pacilic operators. Wo
wore making big salaries then , but wo
lived woll'and , when the discharge came
some of us were badly loft out in the
cold. Wo were half way between the
Atlantic ocot i and the Pacilic coast ,
and wo all found out then what it
meant to bo 'busted and a long way from
homo. ' After a week or so wo managed
to raise money enough to carry us to the
largo telegraph olllces in oilier cities ,
but Jim got discharged , acted
a trifle unwisely , and got broke again
before ho could got out of town. Ho
awoke one morning with just $1 in his
pouKot. His relatives lived in Now
York , and how to got there was a ques
tion that severely agitated Jim's mind.
Finally ho evolved a scheme , desperate
but clover. IIo was well dressed and
looked as ncatand gentlemanly as could
bo. Going into the ticket ofllco ho
asked for a ticket to Now York. The
clerk took ono out , stamped it and
handed it over. Jim looked at it a mo
ment , then suddenly remembered an
engagement to bo kept before leaving
town , and rushed out of the otllco.
"In this way ho found out what a
New York ticket looked liko. Next , ho
secured an old calendau , printed on
paper somewhat resembling a
long-distance sectional railway
ticket , and from this ho cut a strip of
proper width. This strip ho folded in
such a way as to represent the various
coupons , and with this absurd counter
foil of ticket ho proposed to roach Now
York. It cost him CO cents to cross the
United States transfer bridge between
Omaha and Council BlulTs , so his capi
tal was just that much less. Jim
reached Council BlulTs just before dark
with his satchel in hand and waited for
the night express eastward. It was
lattt 'Hid before the start was made the
night became very dark , While tno
train was waiting at the station Jim
boarded the last of the passenger
coaches , and prepared for his 'grand
bluff. ' Pulling his silk hat in a rack ,
ho took a soft traveling hat from his
faatehtil. In the next scat were an old
gentleman and his wife. With this
couple Jim entered into conversation ,
and soon made himself very agreeable ,
lie casually mentioned that lie was
going to Now York , and niado a great
display of nutting his 'ticket' in the
band of his hat , remarking at the same
time that loiig-distaneo lickots were terribly -
ribly bulky allairs. Then ho talked with
other people in the car , taking partic
ular care that everybody should observe
the ticket in his hat-band. When the
train Blurted Jim opened the car win
dow and prepared his trap. IIo as
sumed sleepiness , rested his arm on the
window sill , laid his head on his arm in
such a way that ho could either hold
his hat on or lot it fall off , and awaited
"Tho train was running at a high
rate of speed when the conduclor came
through. By that time Jim was fast
asleep. 'Tickets , ' called the conductor ,
hut Jim did not hoar , and the olllcial
could not see the bogus ticket , for Jim
had turned his hat around so that it
was on the other side of it. Then the
conductor gave the sleeper TV shako , but
it fulled to arouse him. Another shako
followed , and still another , when at
last the conductor lost patience , and
while ho exclaimed 'Iluro , wake up
thoru , ' gave Jim a rougher shako than
those preceding. Now was the
critical moment. Jim jumped up ,
raised his left arm as ho did
so , which caused his hat to
fall out of the window. Half sleepily
ho began fumbling in his pocket for
a ticket , when the old lady in the next
scat volunteered the information that
Jim had put his ticket in his traveling
hat. Jim looked around for his hat.and
now the kind old gentleman came to
the rescue by saying that ho had seen
the hat fall out of the window. Jim
then took a turn at the conductor. 'Con
found it , ' ho exclaimed'my ticket for
Now York vvus in my hat. If you hadn't
tried to shako thd life' out of mo my hut
wouldn't have shaken off. I'll report
you for this whenwo get to Chicago. '
"Tho loud talking hnd attracted the
attention of olhur passnngersj several
of whom gathered around and volun
teered the information that they had
seen Jim's ticket , The conductor wont
on through the train and reflected that
perhaps no had boon a litllo rough. A
little later ho came back and sat down
in the neat with Jim. Jim told a
straight story , and the conductor llnally
acknowledged his-error , apologized for
it , bogged Jim. tu say nothing about it ,
and when they got to Chicago took Jim
out for dinner , gave him a pint llask of
whisky , a now traveling hat , a pass to
New York , and an introduction to the
Pullman car conductor , with all of
which and some sandwiches Jim con
tinued his journey to Now York in stylo.
IIo arrived in the city with 17 conls. "
Even the old-timers laughed heartily
at the recollccllon of Doodv's cleverness ,
and then the inevitable ' 'That ' reminds
me" came from another of Iho party.
"You remember the crowd wo had in
Omaha in the old times when wo used
to 'relay' all the overland sluff there'/
No'/ Well , it WIIR the daislost sot of
operators I over saw together. Every
man was 'gilt-edged , ' and could handle
any wire in the olllco , though they were
all through circuits. Wo all got the
best salaries paid by the company in
any part of tiio country , and wo just
about owned the town , which was a
small affair then compared with what it
is now. The boys were all hard drink
ers and of course spout all their money
for rum , but they were a set of
good-hearted fellows , nevertheless.
Well , a liquor dealer came to us ono
day with a proposition Unit if wo would
settle up or pay something on account
at Iho end of each month when we got
our salaries , ho would give us all llio
credit wo wanted between pay days.
Of eout-hO wo accepted and started the
credit account within three minutes and
a half. At the end of Iho month wo
each owed half a month's pay. Then
wo each wont around and pa'd ' $10 on
account. The proprietor may have ex
pected more , but he said nothing about
it , and took what ho got and looked
happy. yVithin six months ho came to
us and offered to present us with the
saloon if wo would pay what wo owed.
Wo declined , and ho retired from busi
ness in Omaha. I guess ho didn't lose
much , for the whisky ho sold was of the
'tarantula1 juice variety , and was war
ranted to kill. "
And so Iho reminiscences went on ,
the stories relating to narrow escapes
from Indians when the lines were
strung overland , encounters with train
robbers at isolated stations in the south
west , and of marriages contracted be
tween operators who had never scon
each other until the wedding hour , and
whoso acquaintance and courtship wore
conducted and developed through hun
dreds of miles of wire.

Accumulations of odds and ends in our men's and boys' suits stock.such
as one or two suits of a kind , must be closed out during the next few
days as our incoming fall goods are already crowding us for room
Among the men's suits are a few extra fine dress and business suits
made of choicest fancy worsteds , and gotten up in a No 1 style. No cus
tom garment can beat them , They are suits for which merchant tailors
would charge from $40 to $5O , and fine ready-made houses are asking
$35 for them today. To make a quick and clean sweep with them , we
have marked them at less than the material in them is worth.
Of the $4.75 all wool cheviot suits advertised last week , there are only
a few left We never had such a run on a suit as we had on this , and at
this time of the year , when other stores have nothing to do. It is a better
looking and better wearing suit than other houses are offering for dou
ble the money.
Enormous reductions form former prices on all Boys' and Children's Summer Suits wo
have left. Wo do not intend to carry one over if we can help it.
