The Nebraska Farmer contains the
followinr suggestions on the subject of
poultry raising :
Keep your chickens out of the "dew
o' mornings. " and never place them
where they will bo obliged to bo ex
posed to the midsummer sun in the
miduloof the day.
If a hen lays soft shelled eggs , give
her plenty of gravel , oyster shells ana
crushed bones ( which material she
needs to make hard egg shells of ) and
this evil will oftentimes bo corrected.
Chickens must have plenty of ovor-
ciso or they will not thrive well. If
you are compelled to keep your poultry
in a small yard you should contrive
some plan by which you can keep them
at work.
On thotwouty-flj'sl\yhon the chickens
nro coming out , lo yoj the hen to her
self until they n.rp ( released. Then
wait twenty-four hours yet for the lit
tle ones to got Upon Hhoir feet before
you feed them. "
Feed the chickonswoll , a little at a
time and often , and jdo not lot them
stop growing ; icoop thorn steadily at it ,
and you will havalargo , healthy fowls ,
able to stand the cold 'by next winter.
The most critTjjarHimo for young
chicles is the tiraev hey drop their
downy coats nnd before they put on a
full dross of feathers. ' ; At this time they
must have the very best of care or they
will sometimes di'oV-'dfT with but little
notice of their 'dojihVturo. ' After the
young ohiclts ara 'fuljy ' feathered they
are strong enough 'to help themselves ,
nnd will got along if they have plenty
of good food and are kept well sheltered.
A brooder must bo with his fowls ,
and attention to detail is the work that
pays best. As n sule , food ouch day
frc'sh vegetables aud grain in some
form , leaving no > vant unsupplied.
Such food as is rlcl } In albumen will
produce the most eggs. It is said in
western Now York that -a bushel of
buckwheat nnd a bushel of oats will
produce a bushel of eggs. If you add
fish or animal food In some form , and
green stuff every day , the estimate is n
sensible ono.
The glnulno Angostura Bitters of Dr ,

CnicAoo , July B. [ Special Telegram to
TUP BnE.l Since General Manager Kann ,
of the Chicago , St.Pnul ft ICnnsas City , gave
notice that ho would apply the low St. Paul
commodity rates to Missouri river points ,
the other western roads have united in callIng -
Ing the notlco n bluff , This imputation
seemed to have stirred the management of
the Chicago , St. Paul & Kansas City to de
cided action , nnd notlco In writing was given
to Chairman Mtdgloy. Thereupon the chair
man Issued a call for n meeting lioxt Tues
day for consideration of the subject. Whether
or not the Chicago , St. Paul & , ICnnsas City

General Manager Kgan , of the Chicago , St.
Paul , t Kansas City , said as plainly us words
ctttild that the rates would bo made to
Missouri river points. The main hope of the
other western roads noxv Is that it the rates
to Missouri river points nro reduced , they
will not bo mndu the sumo as these to St.

Thn AVlioat und Corn Kntcn.
CHICAGO , .luly S. [ Special Telegram to
Tun Bin. : ] The Chicago committee of the
Central Trafllc association mot to-day to dis
cuss the 5 cent reduction on wheat nnd corn
to Baltimore nud Philadelphia. The Penn
sylvania company gave notlco that it would
meet the reduction , while all the other roads
fought for delay. It wus Hnalfy resolved by
a majority to postpone action until to-mor
row. All the roads believe It will bo neces
sary to meet the reduction , and uono of thorn
give good reason for delay. The real cause
for postponing action lies In the fact that n
reduction In through rates must cause a cor
responding reduction to all local points.
Probably nine-tenths of the east bound
grain on central truffle roads is for
local points. , the vast bulk going by
the lalto lines to the trunk line
terminals. It 3s conceded on all hands that
any rail reduction possible could not com
mand much tr.illlc , as the rate would bo still
further lowered by lake lines , As a consequence
quence , the loss to the alt rail lines by the
reduction would bo enormous to local points ,
while the same amount of through business
would bo carried at reduced rates.
A flato War Threatened.
KANSAS CITY , July G. It was announced
to-night that the Wabash has joined with
the Alton in a demand that through lines
from the west to Chicago break bulk on
through business , as per the Intcr-Stato
Commerce Hallway association agreement.
Both these roads threaten to solicit
business on through lines , pay full
local rates over them to Kansas City , and
carry it from hero to Chicago at any rate
that , added to the local , will bring the total
down to the through rate on the through
litos. The Uock Island refuses to break
bulk , nnd has announced that it would make
any rate between hero and Chicago that the
Alton wanted to make. Unless some agree
ment is reached a lively rate war is uxocctod.

A I'rincc'slCxjHirlonco on the Back
of nn Hlcphant.
Prince Henri d'Orleans , in his new
book , describing nis adventures in
India , gives some interesting descrip
tions of tiger hunting on the back of
elephants. In Nopaui , whore the tigers
abound , nobody hunts them , ho says.
' The English lot them ulono because
an expedition of the necessary size is
very costly and ditllcult to organize ,
nnd , above till , because they can not
obtain permission to enter this inde
pendent suite. The natives live on
good terms with the felines , to whom
they pay , without protest , an impost
levied upon their Hook * . Fur from an
noying the tigers , they oven protect
them. Natives , knowing perfectly the
lah'ofa tiger , refuse to disclose it.
They have a superstitious fear of ven
geance which might bo wreaked upon
them. "
The government of Nopaui , however ,
waived local sentiment for a time , and
sent the prince a body of native hunters
on elephants in charge of one of the
maharajah's olllcors , whom the prince
said wus faultless , except that ho was
too civilized and was too intimately ac
quainted with whisky.
The start was made from the border ,
where a line of pickets was the only in
dication of the change of rulers. The
spectacle of the troup of elephants in
march affected the prince strongly.
His rollections were interrupted by
Colonel Parsoval ,
"Suddenly ho said to mo with ail mi r- ,
able coolness , 'Thoro is a tiger before
us ! ' I made as if I had not heard , und ,
without anyone noticing it , obliqued
gently to the right , so us to got ahead
of the others. 'Quo vouloz-vousl En

"Soon my elephant gave a blast of his
trumpet nnd in front of the colonal ap
peared an enormous tiger. Nothing
could bo handsomer than this superb
animal , his skin striped with black on a
reddish ground , freeing himself with n
single bound from the grass tufts throe
or four metres high.
" 'Wo expressed our admiration of him
by a carefully aimed sulvo. It merely
urged him to a gentle trot. Then I saw
nothing but fire , for after the discharge
of our throa rifles the line turned
abruptly to the right and a general dis
charge ensued. The smoke raises.
"A tiger is thoro. Is it the same , or
is it unothorV I have never boon able
to clear the matter , and I remain per
suaded that the tigers have diabolical
"However this may bo , a tiger is
there , moving freely , only 150 motors
from us , Tbo pace ot the elephant is
quickened , For my part I become angry
because I cannot hurry my own. Ho is
a largo elephant , who continues obsti
nately to maintain his regular step in
spite of the blows administered to him
from the roar by a mahout detached for
this purpose. ' ( Observe a little the com
plication ono elephant to carry mo and
another elephant to carry the man who
goads mine ! ) Fortunately this does
not prevent mo from again saluting the
tiger , but I am obliged to aim at 200
motors instead of 150.
"It foil , llnally , but I was unable to

In the line , ho had seemed to cscauo

believe otherwise nnd that the last hour
of the animal hud sounded ,
"It was n largo tigress , measuring 8

once. Some said there had boon two
animals , for wo had first fired nt n

his tiger ; ho waa euro of it.
"Tho doctor examined the game to
find the fatal ball. As for my cousin
ho had soon the animal roll over-after
his shot. I remained quiot. I do netlike

these. I wan singularly compensated
for my silence , for after a long examina

Beautiful Splits Witnessed by n 1'nrty
KxplorliiK Mount Tnuonin ,
Alton C. Tslason , the leading business
man of Tacoma , with two other well
known merchants , recently ascended
Mount Tnoomn. Upon their return Mr.
Mason was nskcd wtiat ho had soon.
"Everything that is beautiful , grand
and sublime in nature , " said ho. "Bo-
tweon Tacoma and the mountain , fifty-
five miles distant , miles of as flue cedar
and fur as grow anywhere in the terri
tory. Tlio timber will run from 7o,000
to 125,001) ) foot to the acre. Some ot the
trees are as much ns twelve feet in
diameter , and as straight as it is possi
ble for vegetation to grow.
"Tho uiulorbrush'is primeval in its
luxuriance. Wo stood alongside the
trees on horses and you could see the
trunks of them on each side of the
horse. In other places the underbrush
is so thick as to hide the horses , and all
that could bo soon of the rider would bo
his head.
"Paradise Valley is beautiful almost
beyond description. It has boon most
appropriately named.
' There you see the most beautiful
varieties of llowcrs blooming in unlim
ited profusion : and such lloworsl They
are infinitely moro beautiful than these
scon in the other valleys , which are a
sort of species *
"The trees in the valley are fir , cedar ,
spruce and oak , and other hardy vari
eties nbovo the mountain continue to
rife up. There nro waterfalls and
brooks and grand old logs which have
boon lying there for centurion , 1 sup
pose , from whoso sides other trees , and ,
of course , smaller trees , nro growing.
Roots of some of them grow down in
each side of the log and seem to cm-
_ , race it.
"Wo camped In a charming spot.
Wo sat down whore wo could toss the
matches from our oigar on one side in
to a bank of pure white snow , on the
other into a patch of the most gorgeous
ly colored flowers.
"Wo called that Paradise Camp. It
is sometimes called the Camp in the
Clouds. When we reached that height
our clothes became burdensome nnd wo
stripped off everything except our pants ,
shirts , hats and shoes. Wo discarded
our guns before that.
"Tho snow is a glittering , glisteninc
white , and very hard on the eyes. Before
fore wo began to climb into the snow
bolt wo blackened our faces with cork
and put on black caps , which wo pulled
down over our eyes. Had wo not done
this wo would have been blinded by the
brightness of the sun on the snow , and
probably ruined our sight. "
"Did you get to the summit ? "
"No. Between the G'owlitz and Mos-
qually glaciers , which feed these two
rivera , is a perpendicular wall of rock.
It is an impassable barrier. It goes
straight up. It is impossible to scale it.
"Around on the outer side , between
the glaciers is a narrow path , through
which it is possible to make the ascent ,
but a man takes his life in his own
hands when ho makes the attempt.
Above is a mass of towering , crumbling
"It is awful to look at that point and
think what might happen , but you can
not help but admire thu grandeur of
the sight. The only way to make that
ascent with anything like safety is for
some sure-footed climber to go ahead
and malio n rope fast , then one could
pull himself up along the side of the
rock. Wo went through to a point
from which steam could' bo soon issuing
from the top. "
"How high did you ascend ? "
"To a height of 13,050 foot. That is
what the aneroid registered. The atmosphere _
mosphore nt that height was so thin
that wo panted for breath.
'The altitude at which wo shed our
surplus'clotliiiig was 10,000 foot. I took
quite 11 number of photographs of cones

forever. I have taken pictures of borne
of the waterfalls. We did not bee Ta

sound , because wo wont up on the other
side of the mountain , but wo saw the
Cascade range stretching away to the
south west ns far as the eye could reach ,
and the Columbia river and Olympian
range as it runs along the coast. Wo
reached within a quarter of a mile of
the top by actual measurement. "
Opium nnd Crime ,
The statement that of the 338 pris
oners now confined at the House of Cor
rection'nearly a hundred are "opium
fiends" indicates a close connection be
tween opium and crime. A few months
ago Judge Murphy , in sentencing a
criminal , remarked that opium had
largely taken the place of whisky as
the incentive to crime in this city.
Such facts show the need of some hotter
restriction on the sale of opium than
exists. The trouble scorns to bo that
the opium , morphine and cocaine busi
ness is too prolltablo to bo given up ,
and the public interest must suitor.
Proi. Sylvester , who came from Eng
land to bo professor of mathematics nt
Johns Hopkins university , is absent-
minded. Calling on friends in Haiti-
moro , ho inspected the pictures on the
parlor wnlln , and , coming to two strik
ing-looking ones , asked who they woro.
"Goorgo and Martha Washington. "
"Ah , friends of the family , I suppose. "
Afterward ho remembered that there

Ncnrly n Glunn Sweep.
Ei.uNsnuno , W. T. , July 6. Ton blocki
of the best portion of this city are In nshoa.
Nearly n hundro'd families are homeless , and
what was yesterday n thriving business cen
ter Is now n mass of ruins. Owing to the
excitement and confusion provnlhnglt is Im
posslblo to ascertain how the fire originated ,
but It Is presumed It Is the result of the celebration -
obration of tro national holiday. The llamos
started on the north Mdo of the
city about 10 o'cloelr In the evenIng -
Ing , nud with the very strong
wind blowing the flro department could do
nothing to check their rapid advance. Help
was telegraphed for to neighboring towns ,
but long before It could ro.icn the ncoiio the
fiaiucs had literally swept out the heart of
the city and commenced to spread among
the residences on the south sldo. It was not
until the main portion of the food for the llro
had been consumed that there were any
signs of abatement , and It was morning
before the flromon secured any result from
their efforts. It is estimated the loss will
run un to many hundred thousand dollars.
All of the leading hotels , the Nash opera
house block , the city hall , the board of trade
building , Snipe ft Co.'s bank , in fact all the
business blocks on Pine and Pearl and Third ,
Fourth and Fifth streets were consumed , ex
cepting only the First National bank build
ing. Bloomer & O'Connor's dry goods house ,
H. Ootzoin'a boot imd shoo store , nuo saloon
and oiio general store. The number of resi
dences destroyed cannot now bo estimated ,
but It is known Unit over a hundred families
are homeless mid with nothing loft save the
few clothes with which they escaped in ( ly
ing from the advancing flames. Help has
been nskcd and la badly needed.
Later The loss , so far as can bo ascer
tained , is fcJ.OOO.OJU , (750,000 In buildings , and
$1,350,000 in goods. There are about one hun
dred and ilfty people destitute. The mayor
nan called a mooting of the citizens to take
action for relief. The city is undet patrol
and order prevails. The flro exhausted It
