Personal Description.
The Iilvo Stoolc Market.
j VERY stranger in a large
city , ns a matter of course ,
, visits the stock or produce
exchange , andfrom the vis-
ra' gallery , gazing down
jupon the animated scone
-below , is told that the ex
cited men , the sound of whoso voices
produce a veritable Babel , are buying
and selling stocks , grain or provisions ,
nnd he goes away with his mind so in
delibly impressed with what ho has
iBoou that over after the mention of n
market will bring before his gaze the
contest of the bulls and bears "on
change' ' or in the provision pit.
Perhaps no ono who visits the live
'Block market at South Omaha for the
first time anticipates seeing a repetition
of the scenes in the New York stock
exchange or the Chicago provision
tnarkut , but ho has boon told that stock
la sold to live highest bidder and he may
xpeot to see a crowd of men actively
engaged in making bids for stock.
.Honco the question , so frequently asked
> 'ty strangers on entering the yards :
It- * "Whoro is the stock sold ? "
The answer is , "Everywhere in the
yards where a buyer and seller happen
to meet and agree on terms. " But still
there are ,

and the salesmen are being posted. At
the ringing of
A TKLEPI1ONK HULL
a buyer quickly secludes himself in the
telephone box or house , which every
packer has located conveniently in the
yards , and hero receives his orders for
his morning's work. No ono would
imagine , from the disinterested look on
his face as ho reappears that upon him
devolves the responsibility of making
transactions during the coining hour
that would mean hundreds of dollars of
loss or gain to'his employer , as his
judgment might be good or bad , nor
could the shrewdest salesman detect
from that look what his orders have
boon. Perhaps his chief has said , "Buy
every hog you can got , as low
as you can , but buy the hogs , " or por-
haos ho has said : "Do not buy a hog
unless you can get a reduction of 10c
per hundred from yesterday's prices. "
It is nil the same to the buyer. Ho
stops out , cool and collected ; it would
not do to show eagerness , for
TUB SALESMAN
would at once detect that ho was anx
ious for the hogs , und would put up the
price on him ; nor docs the oxpcrionced
salesman show ovorlmsto. It is like
the fencing of skilled swordsmen before
coming to close blows.
"What have you got:1" : inquires a
buyer , and the salesman walks away
with him to show him the different
loads of hogs which ho has for sale.
The buyer looks them over , inquires
the price , buys them if it is satisfac
tory , if not , signifies what ho
would bo willing to pay for them , and
then goes with the next salesman at
hand. Meanwhile , the 11 rat salesman
looks up the other buyers and gets their
bid. In less time than it takes to de
scribe it the crowd of men who wore
waiting for the market to open has
molted away , and the stranger and hie
guide nro the only ones remaining.
But ono by ono the buyers and sellera
COMK STRAGGLING HACK ,
until Iho crowd has assumed its former
proportions.
If the market is higher ana the buy
ers have shown a willingness to pay tl'ic
prices asked , perhaps u good proportion
ofnllthohogH in the yard have been
sold during the ilrst twenty minutes ,
but if the buyers have not wanted the
hogs very badly and have only boon
trying to "boar the market , " bidding
lower prices , perhaps no trading to
speak of has boon done. Then it is n
question of uorvo or stick-to-it-ivcness ,
eit or the saloomen must come down on
tbo.'nrloos asked or the buyers must
raise their bids und which one will give
in depends largely upon the opening ol
the eastern provihion market. If porli
ig reported higher , perhaps the buyers
will receive fiosh orders that will cause
them to raise their bids , but if lower ,
the salesmen will probably have to give
in nnd will sell to the buyers who made
them the best bids. Meanwhile there IE
nothing to db but to await the outcome ,
though buyers and Hollers mav bo

they show no signs of it but rather by
a cheerful look seek to smother the
fooling of responsibility. Jokes arc

trade and are scattered through the
yards. If they do not succeed in mak
ing a trade the whole crowd wllH > e buck
again before long and the same or sim
ilar scenes will be re-enacted. But as
a general thing the hogs are all sold by
the middle of the forenoon.
After the trading is all over comes
the
"WKIOHING "
UP ,
which is by no moans an uninteresting
feature of the mbrkot. The yards are
laid out on the same general plan as a
city ; the pens , whicli might bo likened
to factories and mercantile houses , are
built in blocks , and each pen opens into
a street , or alloy as it is always called ,
which runs at right angles throughout
the yards. As soon as a salesman has
sold put ho gives his assistant orders as
to whom the hogs are to bo weighed up
to and dircctlv the word "koy-oh. ' ' is
heard in the loudest voice the culler
can command , repeated again and
again until the key man ap
pears , unlocks the jrato of the pen and
turns the hogs out into the alleywhence
they are driven toward the scales.
Others are calling , "Koy-oh , " and soon
the alley is full of hogs , all moving
slowly on in Iho same direction , but
each load is kept separate. Every time
a load is weighed over the scales the
whole procession mo\es up a little fur
ther , until the bcalo house gate has
closed on the last load. When
Tin : iioas KMKHOB
from the scale house they are the prop
erty of the buyers , and are turned into
largo pens until they are wanted at tno
packing houses. As a rule the market
has barely closed before the droves pur
chased by the different packers nro on
the way to the slaughter house. To
one who has never soon more than the
fractional part of a hog , ay represented
by a pork tenderloin or a cased ham
hanging in the marketa thousand hogs
being driven along the alloy to the
packing houses is quite a surprising
Bight , and one that invariably brings
forth the remark : "What a lot of thorn ?
Whore do they nil come from , and
where nro they going:1" : When a thou
sand ho < rs scorn so many it is hard to
ruali/.o that a million and a quarter
hogs passed through that sumo alley
last year. But the market is closed and
the hog alloys are deserted.
While cattle are sold , weighed and
delivered to the buyer in the aamu general -
oral way as the nogs , still there are
Home points of special interest that uro
well worth a visit. The scone
IN THIS CATTLK AhMSYS
is certainly more picturesque the
buyers and sellers uro mounted on
horses , as the distance around the yards
is too great to go on foot and then , ton ,
a great many of the cattle have no ro-
suuut for a man on foot and consider
him only a fit ornament to decorate the
tips of their horns , us several men have
found to their sorrow during the past
year. When there is a good demand
for cattle and everyone is buying freely
the eight is certainly very animated.
Mounted men are riding hero anu there ,
usually in couples , urging their Dorses
into a sharp trot , or even into a gallop ,
nnd droves of cattle uro being rushed
through the alloys , urged on by loud
shouts and cracking of whips.
To keep a cool head and make no mis
take amid nil this hurry and bustle re
quires u long experience and u general
adaptability to the business in hand.
Many of these men have followed the

lilttlc Romances.
The absolute diuorco granted to Mag
gie Mitchell , the popular actress , has
again set ugog the gossips touching
her first love affair , which has about it
the flavor of romance and adventure.
Away back in the sixties , when the war
was under way , Washington city was an
armed camp. The city then hrtd not
emerged from its old lethargy , and the
invasion of a great army in the midst
of its people , while it amazed those lethe
the manor born , gave thorn the first
full realization of wlmt genuine activity
and bustle meant. It was at thib period ,
too , that Maggie Mitchell , un actress ,
was at her best. Maggie loved a horse.
It was her w.ont before the him was
fairly up to dash out over the hills ,
then onrircled with forts and menacing
guns , and at n breakneck speed rush
holtor-sKoltor , to the nmu'/omont of
those less courageous. Many times
alone she scoured the beautiful out
skirts ; not always thus alone , however ,
for at limes it was observed that her
escort was a maply youth of sturdy ap
pearance and goodly features. Like
wise it was noticed that when together
speed was not so necessary , and rather
did they Jog along side by side , inter
ested both in cuuh other und the beau
ties of nature , bucn as autumnal Sep
tember can alone unfold. The dream
of love was iiwiikonod in each. The
climax came when , upon u return from
such a jaunt , Maggie , Hushed with
some excitement , miido a confident of
her mother. She almost shocked her
when , in girlish glee , she said :
' Mamma , I was married this morning. "
Troutintr it jocosely , her mother said :
"Wolll hope you have married a saint. "
"Ho in , " she added , and then in a
serious tone she gave the details. A
cloud overshadowed the mutcrnul
countenance. There was no longer
doubt. In n tone of command Magglo
was ordered to her loom. The very
overture of her matrimonial career was
the maledictions of the mother-in-law.
The air was surfeited with womanly
rage. In a condition fairly wild , the
groom was ordered away with injunc
tion to never addrebs his wife ugain ,
not even by so much us a look or token ,
Then Maggie became a prisonor.ulways
under the eye oi her mother by day
und by u cordon of her mother's friends
ut night the two lovers were kept apart.
Even in the marriage there was ro
mance.
Pivo miles away in the direction of
the north was the little town of Bla-
donsburg , mivdo historic bocuubo of its
duels and medicinal because of its Spa.

village. A mother's acquiescence was
only an incident , for would it not come

Thus it was that Maggie contracted hoi

anger of a mother would not permit tc
be consummated and it never was.
A womnn sixty-four years old died n
few days ago in Purisaml her seve nty-
year-pld husband asked to bo allowed to
remain alone by the coffin for a while
before _ it was taken away. When
friends re-entered he was found lying
across it dead , with a half empty phial
of poison in his hand.
The joungest couple over married in
Ohio wore made man and wife rocontlj
at Keyscr , Monard county. Their names
are C'hloo Roland , aged thirteen , and
See Snow , fourteen. They have boon
sweethearts for four yea s , and after
frequent entreaties received parental
consent to marry. The bride was attired -
tired in a short dress.
A handsome man about twenty-four
years of ago walked back and forth on
the union depot platform the other
morning apparently in a highly excited
state of mind. Karly in the day he had
secured section 10 of the sleeper Iroquois -
quois , which was duo to leave for
Wichita at 0:28 o'clock. Just three
minutes before tlio signal was given for
departure the Wubtibh fast train from
St. Louis steamed into the depot. A
beautiful young lady stood on the plat
form of ono of the cars. She was
dressed in silk , protected by a stylish
flyaway cloak , and wore a hat with a
long white plume. She was a brunette
with sparkling brightoyos that sparkled
still brighter as they caught sight of
the young man. He rushed for
ward und assisted the new
comer to alight , escorting her
hurriedly to the west end of the
depot , where the sleeper was in wait
ing. As they entered the car a gentle
man dre&sed in block followed and wui
handed u document , presumably u mar
riage license. In the presence of rail
way employes the words were quickly
said that made the couple man and
wifo. The ceremony occupied loss than
a minute , and as the law of the state
does not require cither witnesses or
signature of friends to the marriage

wore thus strangely united were un

Mrs. Annie Gardner , ngod thirty-two ,
was found dead in bed at Harrisvillo ,
Mich. , the other day. Five years ago
she was a happy wife and the mother of
two bright boys. She then lived with
her husband in Toronto. An estrange
ment occurred and one night the hus
band took the two boys and came to
Michigan. The distracted wife nnd
mother followed nnd after' a weary
bparch located him near Groonbush ,
six miles south of Harrisvillo , but hov
husband learned of her arrival nnd at
once fled to Saginaw , whore the two
boys died. The mother followed her
hubbancl to Snginaw , only to learn of
the death of her two boys and that the
father had buried them in an obsauro
spot. She , af.tor long search , found
their graves and had the remains exhumed -
humod nnd buried in a cemetery. Then
the heartbroken mother returned to
Ilarribvillo , where her story gained her
shelter and friends. Care and Borrow
had whitened her hair and her bowed
form seemed more like that of a porRon
