lirst of a series of cases in the Cookc & Mor
gan matter.
Yesterday was children's day at Lake
Munuwu and several of the little ones visited
Iho lake. The weather was quite unfavor
able , which accounted for the small attend
ance. Those who went enjoyed themselves
thoroughly. The only things needed were a
little more sunshine and a larger crowd of
children to make the occasion iT success.
Yesterday's police court business was
light. Michael Moran was lined $7.00 for
punishing boo/.e. Frank Daspo was sent to
jail for ten days for vagrancy , and Ed Scott
was sent down for llvo days. J. Tchiemer

Some of the local scribes on the city pa
pers are voicing complaints against certain of
the county ofllcials , whom they accuse of
withholding "news" from thorn and giving
the same to the rustlers on the other papers.
Thcso ofllcials aliould bo more considerate
und try to heln out these enterprising vouiig
men in their laudable endeavors to get an
occasional item , for it must bo rather dis
couraging to them to see their papers go to
press day after day without a single item of
good , legitimate news.
Friday evening Mrs. Lolmn , a woman liv
ing in Garner township , picked nine baskets
of grapes and marked them for customers in
in this city , intending to deliver them in the
morning. About ! 1 o'clock yesterday mornIng -
Ing two boys drove up , loaded them into u
wagon and loft. Constable Clatterbuck was
notified and followed the thieves to Omaha ,
where they had sold the grapes. The fruit
was recovered and un information lodged
npainst the thieves , who arc supposed to bo
Seymour und Leo Do Mors , two brothers
living in this county. They have skipped
out , but will bo arrested as soon as found.
Constable Clatterbuck recovered the stolen
property in very short order.
Mr. Buordorf , who resides nt No. 2U3
Second street , hoard a noise in his house
about 2 o'clock yesterday morning , nnd
thought it was his sister. Ho asked what
was the matter and heard some one run half
way down the stairs and full the rest of the
wuy. Ho rushed out into the hallway Just
In time to see the form of a man disappear
ing through a window. An alarm was given
but the follow escaped. Nothing was missed
from the house , and it is probable that the
burglar was surprised before ho had time to
investigate the premises thoroughly.
Friday's tire near the transfer was caused
by carelessness with gasoline. Mrs. Wilson ,
the tenant of the property , desired to to ex
terminate a lot of hen lice in the barn , and
procured llvo gallons of gasoline for that pur
pose. She distributed the inllamablo fluid
over the Interior walls , and said good-bye to
the vermin. She then proceeded to rake up
some rubbish around the building and set it
nllro. That was all that was necessary , and
in In u few seconds the hen lice had departed
this life. Prompt exertion on the part of
neighbors was all that saved the surrounding
The case of Contractor.I. A. Murphy for
assaulting Reporter Wcstcott , of the Herald ,
was called in Squire Schurz' court yesterday
afternoon. Attorney Limit prosecuted the
cnso for the Herald company. After hear
ing the testimony of witnesses , the court
lined the defendant $10 and costs. It was
\u \ rather un unusual sight to see the prosecut
IV ing attorney in the case urging the court to
romi ; the line , after working hard to have it
imposed , and also advising the defendant to
refuse to pay the line , urging ns a reason
that the Ilemld seribo was to blame for ex
asperating Murphy. The court has not yet
decided whether or not to remit the lino. As
the case stands , it is about the same as
would have resulted from an immediate
trial in police court for disturbing the peace.
A couple of days ago Dr. Soybert and
Charley Stobbins went out to Big Lake on n
hunlliur expedition. As the pair were cross
ing the lake n largo mudhen rose with a tre
mendous noise. The doctor thought it was u
wild geese and swung around his gun In a
hurry , but ho was somewhat excited and the
whole charge tore through the bottom of the
beut. The water poured in rapidly and the
ucurcst land was mado. The only thing loft
to do was to wulk two nnd a half miles
through tha mush to their sturting point.
The story would probably never have gotten
out but "Doe" had on his $14 pants and ho
had to call on bis friends to help him mourn.
As the present gas charter expires on the
2d of February , 1SSU , it is time that the city
council was taking some steps in the way of
advertising for u now plant. The present
system of robbery has been going on long
enough , nnd should not bo tolomtcd a day
utter the expiration of the charter. Other
companies ara already In the Hold , and do-
Biro to furnish gas for the city at reasonable
rates. Their propositions should bo care
fully considered , and means devised for re
lieving the people nf the present burdensome
prico. The question of granting the now
charter cannot receive too much attention ,
and the council and public generally are ad
vised to keepvery wide awuko in the matter.

addition to their fighting forces , and are
more confident than ever of ultimate success.

There is perhaps nothing in which
the progress of an ngois more definitely
showa than In its modes of decoration.
Within a few years inventive genius
has been directed hero , and now the
same beauties in sculpturestuceos , etc. ,
which embellished the polaccs of many
years ago are now produced in papier
innchc , and at * o trilling an expense
that the most modest homes are beauti
fied by them. This artistic instinct is
in all men , and all delight in surround
ing themselves with what will please
the eye.
With the professional decorator it is
his fittulv to keep pace with the times
as to materials , styles , etc. , and also lo
study the tastes of his patrons. With
the beginningof this year Peter C. Mil
ler visited Chicago and the art houses
there , the results of which visit have
been seen in the artistic work done by
him during the past bcnson.
TillBIK : : refers , at this time particu
larly to the bunking room of Olllcer &
Pusoy which was recently decorated by
Mr. Miller. In material , style and lin-
ish it compares with' the finobt houses
of the east. A brief description will
sullicc at this timo. The ceiling is laid
in a Greek square , forming line panels :
a large one in the center and two smalt
ones ut each end. The lields are u reddish -
dish blown , gold figured. A darker
gray out Hold , or relief , surrounds these.
The divide is a beautiful gold ground
with a bottle green shaded llgure. The
outer band is blue , which handsomely
illuminates the whole. The center of
tlio large panel contains a papier innche
piece which is a faithful reproduction of
the famous bronxos of the sixteenth cen
tury. Bron/.e moulding * surround each
panel , and lend ( v rich yet quiet beauty
to the whole.

For n OeU-ctlvn'ri Ijlfo.
On the North Carolina side of the
Bald Mo.mtain , as I turned aside at
noon one day to eat my luncheon , I
stumbled full upjn a new still which
the mountaineers wore bringing up.
On the dny previous several men on
horseback hud pusiud mo , and I remem
bered that the familv ut the cabin
whore 1 passed the night seoiiie.l to bo
restless and uneasy , writes M. Quod in
the Detroit Free Press. The revenue
men hail got truck of tlio still and had
pressed the mountaineers so closely
that they had hidden it away among
the rocks and bushes at the waysido.
The outfit represented the combined
capital of halt a do/.on mountaineers.
If they lost it they would lose their all.
If Uni'lo rftun failed to lay hands on it
he would be no worse off. I looked the
outfit over , making a note of every
thing , ate my dinner , and had only irbt
buck to the trail again when four horse
men ro.lo u ] ) . I si/.ud them up for rev
enue men at once , and it was plain
enough that they wore in ill-humor. I
don't know that I would have given
them any information had they been
pleasant , but the wav they jumped on
me for a send-off boiled me over.
"See hero , ' ' said the leader , as ho
glared down at me , ' 'you're the feller
wo saw vcstorday buck here in the el-
D"\Vell. what of it ? "
"A good deal of it. Wo are govern

"Ves ; I've seen 'em before. In fact I
used to own one. "
"Look sir ! I rnuko it

still bus been brought in this section.
The chances are Unit you have met the
moil with it. ' '
" \Velir
' Well , we uro hoic to find it. "
"Am 1 hindering you ; " '
"I believe you know till about it , und
I should bo justified in arresting you. "
"Verj well ; I'll consider myself your
They drew apart and conferred to
gether for a few minutes , and then the
lender said :
'Perhaps I was a trillo too rash , and
I hope you'll oxciiao mo. If you would
give us u pointer it would bo a great
favor. "
"What information do you want1
"About that still. Wo know that it
passed Lapham's , three miles back. Wo
know that it has , not passed Harrisons ,
two miles ahead. It's likely you saw
the men. ' ,
"About two hours ago ? "
"Yes. "
"Had it packed on two mules ? " *
"That's it. "
"Four men and two mulcsV"
"Yes. "
"They must have loft the main trail ,
or you would have seen them. "
"Yes. "
"Back hero about twenty rods there's
a ravine to the right. "
"That's so I romi raber. "
"If I had been one of the men I should
have dodged in there with the party. "

They were on the gallop , anil the
bound of their horses'feet had not yet
died uway when two men dropped but
of the rocks and bushes to my left.
They were mountaineers and ifloon-
shincrs. Both hold out their hands as I
jumped up in alarm , und one of them
said :
"Stranger , that'll the whitest thing I
over ki.ow u man to do , und wo uro a
crowd which won't forgit it ! "
llo uttered u hhrill whistle nnd two
other men , ouch leading u mule , broke
cover from a thicket. That outfit was
picked up and packed ami strapped in
IIvo minutes , and I was invited to go
along with the party. Wo took the
main trail about half u mile and then
turned into a ravine road to the right.
One man was sent on ahead as u scout ,
and us we slowly progressed the others
asked where I was from and what my
errand was , und before 1 had fully ox-
pluincd , the leader , whoso name was
Dawbon , bald :
'Say , he's the very follow wo got
word about ! Put it thar , young feller ,
an' right glad we ar' to see you. "
Wo had progressed about a mile when
the scout came back with word that the
revenue gang hud taken a half circle
and were coming back to the main road
by this very path. Just hero a small
ravine ran to our right , deep and dark.
The men were badly rattled for the mo
ment , nnd seemed about to abandon the
mules and take flight down the gulley ,
when I said :
"Can't you all push down in there and
leave it to mo again ? "
"Would you do it stranger ? "
"Of course I will. ' !
I saw them hidden und then saun
tered on for about two hundred feet und
sut down on a rock. Jn five minutes the
revenue men catno jup. I asked what
luck , and they replied that they had
missed the party altogether.
"After you wont away , " I said uftor a
bit , "I saw two men And two mules in
the brush on the left of the road. "
"You did ? " ,
"Yes. You woregone then , and of
course I did not care to investigate
alone. " ,
"Those are the men wo want , " shouted
the four in chorus , and away they wont
with a great clatter/ Five minutes
later the moonshine party were out of
the ravine and Dawson came to mo ,
grasped my hand , and said ;
"Men , take a good look at himl You'll
all fetch ( jigrfKj ) with mo't at if.aryman
In these "ycro hills ever ponsidors to
chittor him ( stoops to question his right )
that ere man has got to dlol' "
After proceeding a mile and a half wo
reached the spot whore the mill was to
be located and half a inilo away was
Duwson's % bin. His family consisted
of wife aniT three children , the oldest
being a bare-footed , baro-leggea girl of
sixteen. After being introduced I was
left to pass a counlo of hours while Dawson -
son returned to the men. Ho had explained -
plained to his wife who I was and what
baa had happened , but the children
were lull of curiosity. As I eat by tb
door smoking , the girl , who was culled
Dob. sat down beside mo and asked :
"Stranger , did you lope it ? " ( como on
foot. )
"Yes. "
"Aimlo or a sot-down. "
"Moro'ntlmt. About idozoy Hop-
UDS. "
"A 'sot down' moans half u day' travel.

dedtimo the head of Ihb house would
say to the children :
"Como now , you'uns , its flop-up timo. "
The girl loolci-d at mo in great sur
prise , and presently asked :
"You dlpn't como to shoot papa 'cause
if yo had you'd hov chucked ( ambushed )
him. "
"No , I came to sec vou. "
"Mam ! Oh , mum'she ! ' called , "como

mother , us she cumo out with her pipe
and sat down.
"He's honey ! I dun tolo yo when

"He's honey , fur shore , " said the
mother , after glancing at mo. "But

"Xo. 1 fell in with your husband and
his friends on the road and ho asked mete

"Hip ! Andyou'iin don't want to marry

"I I can't , my child. "
"MobUe you'un is forwurdly ( ulroady )

"Hip ! And 1 setsk-li store by ho'un ! "

"I'm a-thinking. Deb , and I know

When I went away Dawson took mete
to the main trail by u short cut , as wo
sat down on a rock to have u lust smoke
together ho said :
"I've been hetohin' "
( wondering ) .
"What about ? "
" 'Vull. we taw you comin' up the trail

St. Paul Pioneer Press : I have just
returned from a brief visit to my old
homo among the mountains and granite
hillsides of New Hampshire. The av
erage farm in that country is suy 100
ucres , of which , perhaps , fifteen to
twenty acres may bo culled , in a sense ,
arable. On the old homestead which I
visited I found growing say one-half
ncro of oats , three-quarters of an aero
or corn , ono'quarter to one-half aero of
wheat , a few potutoos , und n smull gur-
don. Not to exceed twenty ucrcs hud
been mown , and tbo hay nicely stowed
away in the burn. The buildings were
in excellent repair , und both inbido and
outside were na neat as could
be desired. In the wood shed I noticed
nicely stored away a year's supply of
fuel. The man who now owns the pluco
did not inherit it , nor , if I remember
rightly , any oth"r farm. The farm is u
fair sample of the average in that town
ship , twelve miles from the nearest rail
way Htution , und no manufacturing vil
lage in the vicinity. It is purely an ag
ricultural district und not considered
by any moans first class in that sluto.
There are no mortgages on those farms
and almost every proprietor has some
ittlo money at interest.
