LINCOLN , Dec
Since Dr. Hillings submitted his book to
the publlr on hog rholcra nnd kindred sub
jects great things have been expected of him.
Jn fact , the experimental station of the state
Xinlversity suddenly grow into now and
greater interest , and a dcgtco of confidence
was awakened In Hillings that ho did not
losses' ' * before. It was not thought possible
that the eruditions of the gentleman could
bo'wholly built upon pivs'iniptlon and pre
tense. Hut the beimei proves that the Illu
sions of l'6pe are us nn oinptj b.iublo. Hank
ing upon the wisdom of the t-sperimcntcr-at-
the-oxiwnse-oMho-fnrnlcrs and-stock-raiser ,
some time back , the board of regents appro
priated 200 for him ami his aides upon which
to commence experimental work. It did not
prove a difficult task for him to find willing
victims. Ho represented to fui mors In dif
ferent localities that he had found a sure
cure for hog cholera. Iiidccd , ho guaranteed
tb cure and prevent cliolcra in every case
where hogs were In a healthy condition.
Much bluster could not full to inspire con
fidence in every locality that had been
ravaged by the disease. And , bo it remem
bered , also , tie | great scientist where best
Imotvn as an arrant citiack nnd fraud was
backed nnd practically sent out by the
board of university regents. The work of
inoculation commenced. U'lio experimenter
thought to ape Pasteur. His theory was
that n healthy hog vaccinated from virus
taken from one diseased with cholera would
take the plague in mild form , would re
cover and that would bo the end of nlldati-
pcrto Mr. Hog. It seemed to be n plausible
The work commenced In Kiclmrdtoncountv.
Herds of healthy hogs wcro inoculated with
cholera virus. It worked. Hog * took the
cholera in n mild form and died In largo
numbers' . The disease spread and keeps
spreading. Healthy herds caught the plague
from vaccinated herds , nnd the hog kingdom
down that way bids fair to bo swept from
the ciirth. Figures tqll the story lit Hutler
county. Dr. Hillings , assisted by Dr.
Thomas , went among the farmers of that
county , u short time since , with scalpel in
hand , to become public benefactors. They
were permitted to experiment lu four healthy
herds , aggregating yo head of hogs , and out
of the number 2UO toolc the disease in mild
form and laid down and diod. So much for
Dr. Hillings and hog inoculation. Ono of the
victims , through an attorney , wrote these
facts to one of the state ofllcials u day or two
ago , enquiring as to Billings' lespousi-
bully , and such other Information
as might bo necessary preceding pros
edition. It is u notorious fact that
wherever Killings has inculcated hogs
throughout thu state , hog cholera hits spread
in the most violent form , and hogs have died
off in large numbers. The Hillings experi
mental agency went up lika a rocket and
came down like u stick. It is about time to
Rupprcss it. And , especially , say a number of
Htiito onlciuls and prominent citlrcns of Lin
coln , the man who won his iwsition by pre
sumption and pretense.
The following cases wore disposed of in
the county \ourt : to-day :

COLONKI , SWEET INTEIIVIBWI' ! ) .
"Colonel" Franklin Sweet , ono of the san-
gulnory heroes of the great battle of Wahoo
and u member-elect of the Nebraska legis
lature , was in town .yesterday nnd had him-
holt Interviewed by ono of the local
papers. Sweet has never had the
reputation of being much of an onti-monop ,
nnd knowing the character of the organ
through which his song was to ho ground ,
he miulo the statement thut the people of
Mcrrick county were very well pleased with
the condition of things regarding railroad
rates , and that all they wanted was "good
lioncst treatment , " etc. Thuu ho proceeded
to glvo the railroad candidate for speaker ,
'John C. Watson , a grand boost by declaring
that Mr. WaUon was "head and shoulders
nboro any man in the Held , " in the light , etc.
Ho probably gets his information from
Mnniuetto and Hoidredgo. Just who Mr.
Watson's supporters are no ouo seems to
Unow , oxcest that the "railroads are for
him. " The colonel was very much in favor
of maintaining the state inllitlu. General
McHrido was asked regarding the Sweet In.
torvlew : J-'Whut jlo you think of Colonel
Sweet's ideas regarding the spcuUeralilp ! "
Ho quietly whispered to Tins HBIS man these
words : "Tho lower house of the Nebraska
legislature is largely anti-railroad , and no
man who is supported by the railroads can
bo elected speaker. IClthur Dempster , Cody"
or myself will bo speaker , and Colonel
Sweet nor no other man can rub it nut. I
nm much obliged to Colonel Sweet for the
back-handed slap ho gave mo , "
SCHEMING U.UMIOinS ,
On or about the 1st of January the state
board of transportation will DSUIU the sup-
cossors of Secretaries Mapou , Mungcr and
Agor. Their time cxplrea with the dying
year. There Is an evident intention that
they shall step down and out at that time ,
.unless , purchunco , it Do the last named , Mr.
Agen It is tuid Mr. Mungor declines to
Borvo on the board of secretaries any longer.
Mason , also , U uupposod to bo wholly indif
ferent ns to the mutter , whllo Mr , Agor do-
shebtopiill the fci.OOO public tout as long ns
possible. ' It U suggested thut ho will uot ob
ject to a life appointment , and that the rail
roads will give his ambition uvcry possible
help , so long us ho continues to serve their
interests. Mr Waring U to continue In the
capacity of chief clerk Just as long us his
allies , the railroads , can holster him up. The
bone of contention , however , conips upon
Who shall succeed either Mason ou Mungor.
It Is said hero UK | > n very reliable
authority that when Mr. Thomas Honton was
hanging on the ragged edge , Just prior to the
republican state convention , thut certain
iiromlnent members of the Farmers' and
Merclumts' Insurance company exacted his
pledge thut hU Influeiicn and veto should go
to Mr , S.V Alexander for u iwsltiou ou tho"
board of secretaries first and last and all the
timo. Of course Alexander gets the cheerful
support of every railroader , for he is known
to bo tinctured that way. Hurton'u pledge
secured him the Lancaster delegation and
the nomination. The old saying , 'murder
will out , " U very true. Van Dcuiark. of Val-
parulso , Is the other aspirant. Ho has ono
qualification for membership on the board ,
namely , he's a democrat. Now isn't this a
precious trio for the board of secretaries to
the state board of transportation ! "Why , "
- aid a prominent republican this morn
ing , "this board would lot the railroads -
roads itoal the sblppen amf * producers
of the state blind during the coining ycaj. "
Hut this fact can bo kept In mind , and it Is a
chcurtul one , too : It takes four of the veto *
on the Htato board of transportation to elect
o secretary. The votes of ISentou , Laws and
Stelu will not be enough to elect the trio

They Collide Yesterday Morning at tlio
Tenth Street Crossing.
Yesterday morning there was n collision
between cable train B nnd 15 with a freight en
gine at tlio Union Pacific crossing on South
Tenth street. The latter was backing u
heavy freight train eastward nnd had al
most cleared the crossing when the ucuidcnt
occurred. The grip was in the charge of anew
now man named Flnlan , who emerged a
week ago from his apprenticeship. Ho snw
the train crossing tlio ? troet , and instead of
stopping his cars south of the truck , allowed
them to continue until ho found him
self unable to prevent the collision.
The rules of the company require all grip
trains to stop a certain number of feet on
oaohsidoof the Union Paciilo tracus to en
able the conductor to go forward nnd sec if
any Union Pacific freight trains are ap
proaching. Finlan's train , it is suiu , started
down the hill with the rope , as
the rule requires , but nt a speed
greatly In excess of that generally
used on the line. Ho evidently thought that
before ho would reach the Union Pacitie
tracks the tram would have passed. Ho
tound however , when near the base of the
hill that ho had miscalculated the speed of
ttio freight train and endeavored to stop his
own train , which however ho failed to do.
The conductor's name is McDonald and ho
claims he apnlied his break as soon as possi
ble , but without the desired effect. The col
lision tore off the front roof eave of the grip
cur , smashed the mil and turned the car
across the truck breaking the drawhoad o
the passenger coach. There wore several
posscngers in tlie car nt the time , but they
were not Injured. Tills Is the first accident
thut hus happened to the cable at this place.

And HO tlio People of tlio Second Hc-
joicc < l Exceedingly.
No sooner had the result of Tuesday's
election In the Second ward been made
known than the friends of Councilman Kas-
par surrounded him , determined to have n
night of jollification. A brass band was sent
for and the gentleman announced that ho
would visit as many of his friends as possible
before allowing the crowd to break up.
Forming on Williams street the procession
moved east to Thirteenth , increasing rapidly
as it proceeded. Place after place was sera-
nudcd , and the enthusiasm of the crowd was
unbounded. Mr , Kaspar himself was ao
happy as n bridegroom and the lion of the
hour. The crowd dually massed nt Mr. ICas-
par's ' place of business , which was for too
small to hold it , and the victor was called
upon for an address. Ho said that so far as
ho had proceeded in life , that was the supreme
premo moment ot his existence. Ho was Joy-
fill at having been victorious , but what af
forded him greatest pleasure was the loyalty
of his friends , after having served thorn for
two and one-half years. All his old friends
had stayed with linn , and their ranks had
been swelled By many accessions. The en
thusiasm over the result was so great that it
was difficult for the speaker to proceed.
After concluding his remarks in English ho
delivered mi address in Hahciman , which
was received with many marks of approba
The procession then moved South to Vin-
ton street and returned by way of Sixteenth.
The Second ward republicans propose to
Jubilate farther over the result , and

I lintl just registered my name nt tlio
Pnlraor house. As I turned away someone
ono jostled my elbow :
j , "I " dcon bass

i voice began ; then , "why Oliver , old
, boy , how ROCS 5tV" nnd my hnnd wns
j > grasped and shaken hcai-tlly. I Razed
a moment in perplexity at a tall , heavy ,
dark man of about thirty-live. "Fen-
wiekV" I said , tiuestionlnfrty.
"Fcnwick it is , ' ho responded.
"Whore have you been all these
ycarsV" I.a-kcd wnen wo were comfort
ably settled In Fen wick's room.
"Let me see. Five years npo wo
wore in St. Louis topotlflsr. Well , my
route hna boon mostly west Binno then.
Traveled awhile for a" hardware firm ,
WholubJilo croeki'ry's my line now.
What are you air"
' Saino old ix-aiid-olglit jionco dry-
goods , " said I brielly.
Fonwiek ran hU lingers through his
hair. My eyes followed the motion of
his hand aim I made a discovery.
"You're gray. " I said.
Ho heaved a deep sigh , which sur
prised mo , for a blither and gayer fel
low than Fen wick I had not known ,
"Yes , boon getting gray for some
time , " ho replied.
My next question was somewhat ir
"Married yet ? " I queried.
His fuco Hushed painfully , deeply. I
have always thought that the lluuhcs
on dark faces indicated more fooling
than the Hushes of fair skinned people.
"I'll show you a piuturo , " ho said.
IIo opened a valise , and from an inner
compartment took a cabinet photograph
wrapped in many folds of tissue paper.
As ho resumed his beat and slowly re
moved the wrapping , I was struck with
the bombrc gravity ol his looks.
In olden days , when we wcro clerks
in the same ifouso , I had u mania for
winding photographs , and ascribing
qualities , or want of qualities to the
originals. I fancied that Fonwiek
meant tj test mv powers on this. I was
right. "Wliat'is she like ? " ho naked

"Twonty-nine now , " from Fenwick.
"Hair dark brown ? "
"Eyes rather cold in expression ;
color doubtful blue , perhaps' '
"No very pale gray. "
"Nose rather largo , n.outh ditto ,
square forehead , well-turned chin ; gen
eral expression of face alert , deter

Eyes cold , but can shoot forth firo.
Covering up all but oycs and forehead ,
I discover a gentle , melancholic soft
ness , which is belied by the mouth and
chin ; nose IJoman , aggressive ; mouth
closed too tightly. Hasn't fountl life a
bed of roses. Forehead beautiful , head
finely shaped , superbly poised ; hair
artistically arranged , Huffy on top. Not
pretty , not handsome , but a noble
woman. General verdict calls her
plain ; particular verdict calls her
charming. " I looked at Fonwiek to
learn how near right I was. Ho was
ga/.ing intently toward tlio picture.
"All you have said is true , " ho said ,
answering my looks. "The majority of
people simply say aha is not good-
"What are simple good looks com
pared with the spirit , power and boul
thut look out of that face ? " I said
Fenwick smiled enigmatically ; ho
was a trillo phlegmatic. Ho reached
for the picture. "Who is shoV" I
"Let mo toll you about her , " ho said.
"I mot her four years ago ; she was
visiting1 Tom Earl's sister , whoa Tom
and I c'amo in oil the road. At first I
took very little notice of her , for I ad
mired Sallie Earl greatly , and , as you
said , she was not my style. Sallie Earl
was brilliant and showy ; her clothes
wore always the very latest style , and
she was pretty , too. But I noticed that
she always deferred to her friend's
judgment and tasto. The second day of
our stay , I .awkwardly fell down Blairs
on my arm and sprained it badly. So
Tom had to take his Irip alono. i can't
Bay that I was sorry. I wanted to go tea
a hotel , but the Earls would not hear of
it , bo I staid. After awhile I began to
compare her with Sallie , and not to
Sallio's advantage. Her clothes , which
I Imd ihought so much inferior to Sallie -
lie * in style , I began to ndmiro , for
Sullic always had some stunning cos
tume , and 1 solemnly believe that no
man could look into these eyes without
bceing the spirit , power and boul that
you spoke of. "
Ho paused and looked again at the
"Well , ho resumed , " with an impu-
tiont faitrh , "tlio long und tlio short of
it is , that I fell in love with her. She
hadn't paid the leiuslattention ! to me.
Most of the time she spent touching
Latin to young Willie Earl , Then she
was out often with the Earls cousins ,
the Glansbys. But you know when a
man's whole mind is on one thing , and
lie happens to have a strong will , defeat
is not easy.
"Sallio Earl's mind wtis all taken up
with a wedding ; she was going to bo
bridesmaid , so J had to bo entertained.
I think she had a little contempt mo
at first , for ; as she told mo since , Sallie
was moro frivolous than anyone could
imagine , and I was , to al } appearance
dangling after Sallio.
"Oliver , you can't conceive of the love
I had for that woman. You know I
have Httlo romance or truck of that
kind about mo , but when I hud to go
wny at the end of the week , and the
thought struck mo that I should never
see her again , I sat down and cried.
"I know , my oycs were red , und as I
passed through the hall. I saw her oa
the porch. The Earls were there , too.
Sallie bade mo a coquettish fare well ,
but she said : 'I am golnir to walk part
of the way with Mr. Fenwick. ' 'So am J , '
bald Sallio. 'Noyou must not Sallio. I
have something particular to say to
him. ' 'O , very well , ' said Sallie , look
When wo hud walked awhile she
said , looking up from under her largo
hat , "Don't you think Unit was hold of
mo ? " "Why did you do it ? " I said.
Her face grow red , but she laughed. ' * !
urn insatiably curious , and you look us
if you had boon crying. "
Afterward BIO told mo that she was
Beared when she looked up and saw mo
go big and dark , glaring down upon her.
Then before I know , out had como
my secret , and J shall never forgot how
pale she grow. All tills time wo had
been walking. When slio tried to say
something horvoico failed ; she laughed
nervously , "I must go buck , " she said
whan wo reached a corner.
"No , do not go back till you toll me
what will become of mo , " I cried.
She hastily took u pouoil uud curd out
of her pocket. "Write to mo , " nho
Bald , and thrusting the curd into my
hand , she loft mo.
The curd wus her address. T wrote
to her at the end of the wuok. for her
visit to the Earls would then ho over.
1 do not remember all I suidbutbho
told mo it impressed her very much.
She did iiot euro ( or mo , but I might
como to see her when I ohosa.
I wont fo see Lor qfton , nnd at the
end ol the year she married mo. " Herb
Fomvink qpyored his face with Ills huudi
nnd sobbed. I uiathtninod a sympa
thetic silence. '
"You may know ; how happy and hon

"For four or five months she was gay
nnd bright nnd was always planning
surprises for me. 1 know she was bit
terly disappointed when I could not
read her favorite books , or any books ,
in fact. I'm not like you , Dick ; I hnto
books. I was a little rough in tolling
her this , and she was very sharp In
answering , and what she said hurt mo
sorely , for I know it was true , and grad
ually I catuo to ceo that the woman 1
had married had done very ill , but 1
was not prepared for what followed.
She went homo to make a visit , and
from tlioro wrote to me , saying I would
do well to forgot her , ns she never
meant to come back to mo again. Wo
wcro entirely unsuitcd to each other. I
did not mak'o her happy , nnd she did
not make mo happy.
"Of cour&o , I went alter her at once.
Her family were furious wanted her to
go back with me , bat she was obdurate.
To my ontrcalios she said : 'It is no
use ; il is much bettor to part with a

ago. I have not seen her since , for her

He shook his head sadly : "You don't

bert of way , but not clearly. I bcliovo

Tlio next day wo parted.
All my thoughts were with Fonwiek
ns the train rumbled along. I blamed
his wife ; called her heathen nnd unfeel

grot , him borne day , for ho was a manly ,
gontle-hoarted follow , bravo as a lion ,
and a favorite with all who know him.

ho talked about his business affaire uud
nothing olso. "
"Wasn't she interested in" her hus
band's business ? "
"Why of coui'BO , but sueh a consti
tuted woiniui could not bo yoked with
mediocrity und live ; she didn't propose
to give up her lifo for him. "
"Mediocrity , indeed ; und 'yoked ; '
are these HolonVwords or yours ? "
"HollonV Lottio sttid , rodoning ,
"but I will not s y another word about
her to you ; you nro very unkind , and
you need not btay to moot her. "
But I did. She came into the front
parlor while I was paying court to Loti
tie's small brother In the buck parlor.
"I heard Lcllic's fervent greetings ,
nnd a calmer , cooler voice responding.
"Dick , " Lettio called , excitedly , and
I came forward. I was aware of n tall ,
slim figure , clad in thin white muslin ;
n gracious presence advanced. Lettio
said n few words that I did not hear ,
for I was staring vnennlly nt rVmvlok's
wife. I recovered myself. ' , ' 1 I beg
your pardon , I did not catch your name , "
"Why , it's Helen , flow stupid of
you. Mrs. Fonwiek , " said Lottie.
Fonwick's words rang in my cars : "I
solemnly believe thai no man could look
in those eyes without seeing the spirit ,
power and soul you spoke of. " And he
was right. I sat down , dumbly , only
answering when I was spoken to. Lottie
was mortified , Over and over in my
mind this sentence kept turning : "And
grief seemed to belong to mo. Helen
and Lvjttlo talked of many things.
Helen's voice was clear and oven. I
cotilrt hmigino her roplici to Fcnwick's
tempests , for ho had a very irascible
She looked PO happy ns she detailed
her plans for the summer to Lottie that
my heart hardened toward hor.
Lottio was asking questions nbout
California , though it was a year since
Helen's return from thorc.
I Interrupted with what Lottio con
sidered unpardonable rudeness : "Mrs.
Fenwick , did you over read 'The Auto
crat at tlio Brcakfabt Table ? ' "
My tone sounded strange to myself.
They slopped talking , and Mrs. Fen
wick looked surpribcd.
"Yes , Mr. Oliver , " she replied , but a
burning blush overspread her fneo.
"Do you remember what the Auto
crat says about men nnd books ? "
"Quito well , " nho responded , with re
"When did you read it ? ' ' I nskcd.
"A hlllo over a year ngo. "
"Well " I said "I have
, , harshly. no
dnubl you thought of John Fenwick
when you read 51. "
"Do do you know him ? " she slam-
"IIo is my dearest friend ; to-day , I
hoard him slandered and maligned by
Lotlic , but I did not know that she
spoke ot Fenwick.
"I tell you that a nobler mnn than
John .Fonwiek does not live , and the
love ho gave you , mnduifio , was worthy
of a princess' nccontance.
" ' ' ' ' words
'Mediocrity' 'yoked' the
make me sick ; nnd all that rot about not
being understood , BOU ! sympathy and
such , is simply awful.
"That man is your superior ; why , it
is sueh men thut'livo boohs ; it is Mich
men that make history , not novels. " I
spoke rapidly ; Helen Fenwick had more
command of herself tntia any living
being I had ever known. She looked
mo coldly in Iho face and taking1 a letter -
tor from her pocknt , handed it to mo ,
wiying : "I brought this to show to
Lottie , but you shall read it first. I am
rather glad , though , to have seen you
in that righteous passion ; you are a
Ttio letter was from her brother ; it
contained the announcement that ho
nnd Fenwick had mot , that Fonwiek
was quite devoted to a young cousin ,
nnd ended with : "At all events , Helen ,
you have lost your grip on John , for ho
asked mo if I thought you would object
to his gelling n divorce. I lold him I
would send you his address , and that
you would write to him , which please
do , for I do not like to bo mixed up
oven remotely in such a disagreeable
I merely opened my Tioto book and
took out Fonwick's last letter lo mo. It
bore date of two diiys previous , and was
written later than the letter I had
I skipped the beginning and read :
"Dick , I must nt last break this
silence regarding her. The litllo
cousin 1 told you of is so very attractive
that I did consider n divorce for awhile ;
I spoke to my wife's brother about it ,
even , but it is no u > e. I would rather
live , with Helen a wife to me in name
only , than to possess any other woman
living. And , Dick , I must bee her ; I
think of her every minute that I live ,
nnd if I do not see her I shall die. "
Helen's face retained its impassible
expression , but Lcltie was quielly cry
ing. While I looked sternly nt Helen ,
she suddenly rose , und without ft word ,
left the house. Tlio next jday
when Lettio wont to her friend's
house , Helen bad gone home , and
Lctlio received no letter from her for
some time. Then tiho wrote : "Toll
Mr. Oliver that every thing ho said tome
mo was true , and I had thought it a
long time , and that I never again ex
pect to endure such anguish as I suf
fered the last time you saw mo.1'
Two months later , I came by special
invitation to see Fonwiek and Helen. I
never spent a more agreeable , duy , and
never saw two happier people , though
Helen's undonioiibtralivo manner would
deceive casual lookers on.
"Bless you , she ain't so cold when wo
are alone , " said Fenwick in response tea
a , remark on this Mibjoct. "I was in
Chicago , at the Palmer , one day , when
I was told that a lady wanted lo see mo.
I Ihought it was the little cousin , but
when 1 camp into the parlor , there was
Helen walking up and down the room ,
a rod spot on each cheek. I could have
dropped , but silo eamo straight to mo
and said : 'John , will you take mo
back ? ' and put bur arms around my
nock , and I clasped her , and baid , 'why ,
Helen ? ' 'Because I love you , ' bho said ,
and thai Is Iho end , or rather the be
ginning of my love story , " and ho
laughed a little doiistrainodly.
