WHAT PEOl'LiE TALIC ABOUT. Views and Interviews Caught In Hotel Corridors and KlHowhore. The scheme for a mooting of business men From every county in Nebraska at board of trade hall , in this city , on Juno 2i5 , is taking lilto wild fire everywhere. The indications arc now that there will bo at least 400 dele gates here. W. C. Fenton , of Stockvlllo , has arrived already to represent Frontier county , and ho says that nearly every town in his part of the state will send from two to flvo men. " 1 think the movement is just what wo have long wanted. Its objects cannot fall to bring forth good results. Frontier county is twenty-four miles wide by forty-two long , and fully 73 per cent of the land could bo utilized lor agricultural purposes. Tha re maining 35 per cent is as good grazing as can bo found anywhere. Wo have room for three times as many settlers as are there now , and want to got them if we can. The crop prospects were never better. I think our wheat and oats yield this year will bo larger than over before , and the cornjis sim ply imraonso. " Mr. Fonton came down to visit friends until the convention meets. Ho Is secretary of the Stockvillo board of trade. Hon. A. R. Graham , of Wisnor , Is among tha vidltlng Masons , and tattes a prominent part in the grand lodge proceedings. Mr. Graham says the business men of his town are heartily in sympathy with the Omaha board of trade movement to do something that will bring emigrants Into the state , and they propose sending a strong delegation to the conven tion. "Cumiug county , " said ho , ' 'has room for a great many more ozople than reside there now , and would gladly welcome them. The prospects for a good harvest are very flattering. The dry weather in April and May injured small grain somewhat , but re cent rains have brought out and insured to us the heaviest corn crop wo ever raised. " C. F. Moore , of the Chinese legation at Washington , spent yesterday In Omaha , en route to Sail Francisco , from whore ho expects to sail from homo next week. Mr. Moore is a very fine- looking Chinaman.

Dloockor street was , nearly n century ays n , writer' in the Cincinnrvt Enquirer , ono of the aristocratic thor ouphfarcs of Now York city , nud many of the best fnmlUcs Gotham hnd at the time wore residents of it. As rocpnt as 1813 the street was occupied by a class ot people who would dislike to bo scon Lhore today. There is now "n largo business house on a block whore there formerly stood an inn kept by u Span iard known as Canovns Do Rosn. U was bore that a tragedy was cominittoi ono night that is probably unparnllolot in the criminal annals of this country , thi details of which never reached the general public. Canovas wns a man who hnd accumu lated considerable money by catering to the wants of the weary traveler that Imd mndo the then lengthy trip from Philadelphia. In the rear of his inn was a barn like apartment in which ho kept a wolf , a bear and a few reptiles. Ho added to the collection whenever an opportunity presented itcslf , and as a consequence ho had in time quite n monugorio , which wna the moans of at tracting to his place people who , while looking at his collection of boasts , spent considerable money. The man was n widower and had no family. Ho had como to this country curly in the thirties , and brought with him the only child of his brother , who had developed Into a beautiful girl. Rose Do Rosa had all the attributes of the Spanish maidon. She had picked up English when n mere child soou alter she arrived , and was probably moro of nn attraction to the inn than the menagerie. Rose , as she wns famil iarly called by the habitues of the lilaco , had instilled into her mind that the companionship of the average young mau of the day meant ruin and destruction. Canovas was not slow to realize that THE GIUL'S UUAUTY would some day bring to him a fortnno. The hopes ho indulged in were Hellish from their origin. Ho frequently in- formoil her that she was safer when at , the mercy of the beasts in the barn than in the company of the young gen try of that day. It was not an unusual sight to see the girl , when just entering hoi- teens , ac company her uncle to the barn to fur nish food for the ferocious boasts con- lined thoro. The latter had become accustomed to the young girl's prcs- once and would perform antics at her command that both pleased and aston ished the customers. Canovas saw she possessed some influence over the beasts , and rendered all the assistance in his power for the development of the talent. Ho increased his collection and added a few native snakes. The latter acted like kittens in the girl's hands , and her fame as n charmer of venomous reptiles spread to such an extent - tent that crowds would assemble in the barn to observe her take the slimy creatures from their glass case and coil them about her person. It was at this period that a young Russian Chafe Jurge was introduced to Canovas. The young man's mother had boon a Spanish girl who had made a runaway match with a Russian , the fruits of which were a child and a life of misery. The young man was edu cated abroad and sent to this country by his father's relatives to negotiate with American capitalists regarding an enterprise that promised great results. It was generally known that Chafe would eventually bo the possessor of an immense fortune , and , being young and handsome , was naturally much sought after. Ho had noard of Rose , and expressed - pressed a desire to see the girl. Cano vas know the young man by reputation , and visions of a match between him and his ward came to his mind. Chafe drove to the Blookor street inn ono day and was served with wino. Rose was present and saw that his wants were properly attended to. His manner was different from thoseof young men visiting her uncle's house , consequently quently it was not surprising that a mutual attraction sprung uu between the young people. It was almost imme diately ripened into lovo. Chafe took up his abode at the place , and it was in time looked upon by Canovas as the FUTUUK 1IUSHAKD OF THE QIUL. Ho had encouraged the suit by every moans in his power. Chafe would pass hours in the barn watching the girl feeding her vicious pots. During ono of these performances ho remembered that his presence was required at a hotel kept by a fellow-countryman , where an invalid friend was stopping. ' 'Como with ino , Rose , " ho whispered , loaning pvor the girl affectionately. "I wish to' introduce to him my future wife. " An hour later she was on her way to visit the sick friend of the man she loved. Darkness was just fulling as they entered the gate at a place standing on what is now known as Bowling Green. Chafe took the girl's arm und led her upstairs. They o mil-oil a chamber handsomely furnished , but unoccupied. A table standing in the ccaitor of the room bore fruits and wines. There were chairs placed for two. Rose started back at not seeing the friend whom they hud como to visit , but Chafe ex plained that the gentleman had proba bly gone to drive with his pbysioinn , and under the oircumsstanucs it would bo proper to remain until ho returned. It was the old story , over whicli thou sands of women have ulicd sulllciont tears to form nn ocean. A story told BO often nnd in so many parts of the world that it has become familiar. The power of the wino , the iniluonco of their ar dent love , and. in the passion of the mo ment , forgetfulncHS of the future. Chafe left the girl at her unclo'sdoor. An hour later she had a note from him , in which ho said ho had decided to take up bis quarters elsewhere. Rose passed the next day in the barn , with the animals. She astonished Cnn- ovas by the reckless inannor in which she made the reptiles go through their tricks. She deliberately allowed half a dozen rattlesnakes to como out ol their cases at ono' time , nnd laughed ahor uncle's fright when BUO sat oa a chair with a trio of DANaunous I'KTS m ITEII LAP. The summer came and wont , and Chafe was still absqnt. Rumors reached the Inn that ho was paying attention to ladles. Caiiovas could not understand his prolonged absence , and wrote to him. The answer threw him into a pas sion. It was only a few lines in Spanish , written in pencil , at the bottom of a note sout to him : "I liked Rose liacauKAehalu beautiful. ' - " it f rf > ilftt'-'H ' lf tar-rt + t : It but never thougbAof marrying hor. " The words uurnpd into the girl's brain as her uncloTUhnded thorn to hor. She plncod the notiiin her pocket and repaired to her iWflrito seat among the reptiles in the bsf ( j ) . It wns hero that she decided on n , ilan of rov'ongo as horrible as it Avnp appalling. She wrote to Chafe , bcgginpfhlm to como to the inn. The nnbwor contained the statement thai ho was soon to wed. but thftt' Rose could bo to him all that n.'wijto could bo without bearing his nninp. It was the last straw. She Immndintoly wrote a letter couched In the moit endearing terms , consenting to his'vilo proposition. "Grant mo ono request , " she pleaded 'before all is over. Undo is confined to his bed , and cannot disturb us. Spend ono hour with IDO at the barn. " Ho protested , but finally consented. It wns then dusk. In loss than an hour she was unlocking the door ot tbo place in which ho hnd first spoken words of love to hor. n Ho followed her In. The Eovon months that hnd elapsed slnco ho wns thcro hnd not wonted many changes. A oofa and n chair wcro a few foot beyond the cases containing the snakes , nil ot whom nppcnrod as harmless as lambs. No thought of danger entered the man's niliut. Rose walked over to the case con taining the reptiles nnd throw back the door. "For God's sake , don't take them out ! " ho exclaimed. "You are not in condition to hnndlo the in to-night. See how their tongues dart outl Do not touch them , Roso. " "Their tongues do not contain as much poison as some human beings , " said Rose , us she lifted the largest of the trio of rattlesnakes from its warm blanket mid returned tohor position on the sofa. UI loved you once , ' ? the girl ex claimed , as the reptile coiled itself in a knot on her lap "loved you with all the passionate ardor of a young girl's heart. " 'And don't you love mo yet ? " "No. My hate for you now is as strong as my love wns one. " Chafe turned palo. He realized that the girl's reason was affected , and the bringing of him hero , was simply the [ ' ulflllmont of a part of a deliberate plot j 'or revenge. "Robe , why did you bring mo here ? " "TO SUB YOU mul" The girl Hissed the words out between iior clenched tooth with FO much vehe mence that Chafe rose to his feet. "Yes , " she continued , " 1 enticed you lore to pimibii you for the wrong you itivo dono. You know the blood that runs iu my veins you know that it calls 'or your life for the great harm you have done me. " The girl rose to her foot as she spoke. The serpent dropped to the floor with a ihud and raised its head in a threaton- ng manner. Chafo'leaped ' to the chair on which ho hud been sitting , as the snake glided pa.stvhi.tn to a dark corner. Rose trembled with , suppressed passion .is she stood before the man who had blighted her young.iifo. She ran to the case containing the' two other rattle snakes and tosod 'thorn toward him. The body of one ? btruck him on the oroast and fell tp 'tno floor , whore it gavn forth its oini'nbus rattle. "You cannot osfca o them. " tbo girl screamed in her liassion. "They hoard your protestations Bflovo , and tiioy will lioar your dying Breath. " She leaned ovcr-ithothor case and had raised a huge blapks.uako. Chafe real ized that his only , Jiupo of escape lay in subduing the girltt ( Reason was out of the question.Al "second moro and ho was on the floor and raised the chair in the air. It fell with acrash on the un fortunate girl , who uttered a moan and sank to the floor. The chair had struck the one light the place afforded and ex tinguished it. Total darkness prevailed , a darkness more intense from the fact that poisonous reptiles were loose about him. If ho could but roach the door ho might escape. A few stopa would bring him there. Ho took ono and hoard the rattle of a snauo. Ho could feel their presence within an inch or two of his body. The thought flashed through his brain that if ho remained perfectly still the deadly creatures would probably re turn to their cases. A cold sweat broke out over him. The suspense was awful. Ho could hear the blacksnake drag ging itrfolf along the otherjsido of the apartment , A thought came to him and ho at once acted upon it. Ho knelt down and felt along the floor as far as ho could roach in the direction of the door. Ho dragged himsqlf on his knees and had traveled nearly half the distance when his hand came in contact with the crawling body of a snake. Ho drew back suddenly as ho heard the awful rattle of the reptile. Another instant and SOMETHING STItOCK HIM Ij ; THE FACE and dropped to the floor. Ho shrieked aloud and rose to his foot. It muda no dlfforonco if a dozen snakes were about him. They could do him no moro harm. Ho had been bitten. Rose recovered consciousness at about the tirao that the unfortunate wretch felt the fangs of the reptile piercing his ohook. "At last. " she exclaimed with a hys terical laugh. "You poured poison into my life , and this is my revenge. " The man paid no attention to her words ; ho was pounding heavily against the locked door. The girl arose , struck a match and re lit the candle. Ho turned us she did so , and presented a spectacle awful to behold. Blood was trickling from the wound on his face , which was already beginning to swell out of all proper tions. The strange glare of his eyes showed that the insidious poison of the reptile was doing its deadly work. ' My God ! save mo , save mo , " shrieked the unfortunate wretch. Ho approached her and kqolt at her foot. Thi ) snakes , had crawled back to their blankets , and only tbo upturned chair and the condition of the man showed what nn awful tragedy had boon committed. The girl stood with her nrms folded nnd n rcsoluto expression on her tnco. It wns in this position that Canovas found thorn. Ho had heard the nolso , nnd , dressing himself , came out. The girl did not show the least surprise at his presence. "Ho ruined mo ! " she exclaimed , pointing to the wretched man on the floor before her < "nnd I have boon ro- vontrcd. " Canovns took in the situation nt n glanco. Ho ran to the door , nnd , reaching the street , sped for the nearest - est physician.Vhon ho returned Cliafo wns dead. His face wag n horri ble spectacle. Rose was standing in the same position as when ho had loft. The physician looked at her n moment nnd shook his head. "Sho has lost her reason , " ho said "Nothing can bo done for hor. " Within three months slio died , nnd her body wns interred in the old cemetery - tery at Harlem , over which a row of brick houses now stands. Took All Jit * L'nlim Away. A. M.

For Humanity sweeps onward While tha hooting mob of yesterday in silent uwo return To glean up the scattered ashes into History's ' doldcn urn The citizens of Rome viewed yester day for the first time the unveiling of a statue to an arch heretic on the spot whore nearly thrco centuries ago ho wns burned to death by order ot the in quisition , says the Chicago Tribune : It is enough to mnko the bodies of nil the dead members of the holy olllco turn in their graves witli horror , tt has shocked the living ones , and the erection of the monument \yas bitterly opposed from the beginning by the pope , who considered it scanda lous in the highest degree. But the Italian government does not believe that the church is infallible now , or that it was so in the days when it waa dealing with Galileo and other teachers of now doctrines. The idea of commemorating this great Italian who met his death in the causa of re ligious liberty was conceived by .Ital ians who , while they may not share his views , yet wish to recognize his sin cerity , high-mindedncss , and devotion to what ho believed to bo the truth. The statue is the work of Ettori Fer rari , an eminent sculptor and a mem ber of the Italian chamber of deputies. It is placed in the Campo do Fieri , not fur from the banks of the Tiber , where Bruno was burned. Giordano Bruno was born in 154S in the Neapolitan city of Nola. His father was a soldier , and perhaps of German parentage. When ten or eleven years old ho was sent to an uncle in Naples. At the ago of fifteen ho entered , a Dominican monastery and became n novice of the order. His baptismal name of Philip ho exchanged for his "name in religion" of Giordano , by which ho is always known. In this monastery ho remained iiftcon years , liven while a novice ho was accused of heresy because ho had abandoned de votion to pictures ot the saints and contented himself with a crucillx alono. This charge was smothered , but in 1575 now complaints were made , and ho loft Naples and went to Rome. The next two years wcro spent in school teaching in the north of Italy. Then ho went to Geneva , where no got work in a printing ollico , but Calvinism was abhorrent to him , and ho journeyed on to Paris , whore he taught and wrote and gained the friend ship of Henry III. Next ho went to England , lectured at Oxford , became in timate with Sir Philip Sidney and Pulko Grovillo. and won the favor of Queen Elizabeth , whom ho called the "Diana of the Nymphs of the North. " In 15&5 he wont to Germany and spent quiet years at Wittenberg. In 16U1 ho was unwise enough to go to Venice. A false friend denounced him to the Inquisi- sition. Ho was arrested , and in 1503 was turned over by the Venetian government to the Papal authorities. Ho was tried for heresy. It was charged lhat he taught the eternity of the universe , a plurality of inhabited worlds , and many other false doc- trins. Some of the accusations made against him ho denied , some ho ad mitted to bo true , but refused to recant. After seven years spent in prison ho was found guilty and was turned over by the inquisition to the "secular arm , " the order reading "beseeching you so to mitigate the severity of his sin with respect to his body , that there may bo no shedding of blood. " This gentle phrase meant that ho should bo burnt. Burnt ho was February 17,1000 , in the presence of a largo and enthusiastic auaionco of Roman citizens. According to the account in a uows letter , "ho was slowly roasted , and may now , in those other worlds which ho imagined to exist , toll how blasphemers and heretics arc punished at Rome. " To-day his statue iu unveiled on the spot where ho died and the church is powerless to prevent it.
