Incidents of Dot ; Life.
There Is a palaful uncertainty Intimately
associated with the existence of the canine
population of Council Bluff * in these hot and
sultry dog days. Death Is in the air aad is
breathing its flight upo'i them wherever they
go. The toils of the dog catcher encompass
them nt every turn. None know the danger
better than the poor dogs themselves. The
frequent spectacle of a yelling cur dragged
across the street at the end of a bright wire
noose strikes terror to the canine hearts , and
canine logs that are not yet entangled in the
deadly wire take their owners away from the
hauats of men as rapidly as possible. The
presence of the dog catchers and their ominous
nous black covered cart is a profound and
terrible problem to the dogfish intellect.
The dogs do not try to solve It , but make a
despairing effort to secure salvation by culti
vating a closer fellowship with their masters
and a disinterested friendship with every
body and everything that caiC offer protec
tion. The streets and public highways whore
the dogs had a right to congregate and
scratch their liens a few days ago , and where
they did congregate by hundreds , are
now deserted. The thousands of dogs
of high and low degree that have found a
habitation in Councjl Bluffs for months and
years past are gone , many of them Into tem
porary hiding and many into tliejpound and
thence thtough the hogshead of water intc
the dogs' potter's ' Hold.
Yesterday afternoon all of the unclaimed
and Unredeemed dogs la the pound were
given a bath of two and a half minutes in the
fatal tank in the rear of the city jail. As
little cruelty as possible attended the death ,
but it was death just as sure.
The dog-catchers are enterprising. They
are inspired by lifty cents on each canine.
Sometimes their enthusiasm leads them toe
far. Yesterday the wife of ono of the citj
merchants , was walking along the street , her
favorite dog following her , a doff-catchcr
quietly dropped in the wake of the two and
soon began to inveigle the dog into his wire
cage. The attempt was unsuccessful , and
utter one or two other like attemuts , the
lady's attention wa's attracted. Shu turned
about and expressed her opinion of the fel
low in terms that were decidedly ford
ble. Ho took it meekly , while the
dog , apparently reaming the danger ,
of his situation , streaked for homo.
The old man Montgomery , who owns sev
eral line houndswas visited by the catchers.
The old man is a character. Ho has had
many misfortunes , and isnowmaking abruvc
struggle for bread in bis old ago , but ho has
little property except dogs , and they do not
him any revenue. Ho promised to pay the nee
essnry tax in a few days , but the catcher :
insisted on cash or dogs. Finding that they
were determined to take the hounds he
turned ono of them loose , a regular Sulli
van , who cleared the yard of intruders in
about a minute , Some of the catchers mak <
ing their exit in scanty and demoralized
clothinir. The old man was complained of ,
and yesterday called into court , His case
Several dogs were rescued from death bj
being purchased. Chief Lucas' big hearted
ness was touched by the pitiful condition ol
ono dog , and ho generously paid $3 for hit
tax , stucK a tag on the dog and turned hin
loose. W. W. Hinghutn , of Omaha , secured
a flao bird dog , ransoming nim at the prlc <
of the tax.
Charley White superintends the oxccutior
act. Ho calls throe times for some one , any
one , to pay the tax. If no response is made
the rope is fastened to the dog's collar , and
the canine Is drawn to the bottom of the
hogshead and quickly drowned.

A Waterway Wanted.
The city council , or a portion of that Indus
trial body , mot as committee of the whole or
he corner of Main street aud First avenue
csterdny to devise some moans Of solving
another waterway problem. For many years
iart of the alloy lying parallel with Mala anil
' "oufth streets between Broadway and Wil'
ow avenue has been drained by an open
vatorway constructed across a vacant lol
between the alloy and Main street. The
dloy was paved several years ago with this
Icprosslon in Dm center.
The city had a contract with Mr. Meyers ,
ho owner of the vacant lot , for the rlgnt of
surface waterway from the alley to Man
treet ncross Iho vacaat lot. There was nt
record kept of the contract , however , anil
vhen Mr. Meyers sold the lot to its proson' '
owner , T. J. Evans , Iho contract was an
nulled. Mr. Evans has commenced the orec
ton of 5 two-story brick building on the va
cant lot. and the waterway Is thus cut off.
The visit of the council was to secure some
ncans of averting a Hood la case of n storm ,

vater through the alloy to Willow 'avenue

The case of Ed Snyder , for cruelty to an I
tnals , was quickly disposed of yesterday , tbi
charge being dismissed. It appears that Clt ;
Attorney Holmes had been very mud
wearied at hearing the shouts of drivers ane
cracks of whips , as teams were being forcoc
to back into the city hall alloy , In the roar o
tbe Cascade laundry. The laundry does i
largo business , and there are not only theii
.cams , but others hauling coal , etc. , to tin
ilaco. The alley is narrow , and the grade i
ittle difficult , so that drivers as well a
lories have tholr patience sorely tried. Th
Trcquent shouts and whip crackings hav
disturbed the court , and City Attorney
Holmes , in his determination to bring nboul
a reform , started in on Sn.yder. The latto
denies tlmt bo wnipped the horse unduly
and defies the showing of welts or cuts. Al
of the laundry horses , la fact , have indlca
.Ions of being well kept and carou for. Tin
most plausible explanation is that the noise
of drivers has been the chief cause of com-
ilalnt , and now that so unpleasant notoriety
las been civen to the matter , there will b <
occasion for no further trouble.

"I see THD BEK reports a scarcity of pav

side the city in order to obtain sufllcicni

No Mothers In Fiction.
A sick youth was lying1 in bed watch
ing with quiet eyes his mother's form
novinp gently about the room whore
'or weeks she hud boon ministering to
ilin with teiidorost heart and hands ,
says a writer In the Athmlic Monthly.
Thcro had boon n stillness there for a
ittlo while when the boy spoko. "I
wonder why there nro no mothers in
ictlon. " ' 'Why , there are , dear ; there
nust bo , " the mother answered quickly ,
jut when she tried to name ono she
'ound tnnt none came at the call. When
she related to mo the llttlo incident I ,
too , immediately Bald that our memory
nust bo strangely at fault that it did
lot furnish us with examples in plenty.
Material level Why , art was illlod
with illustrations of it and so was litora-
< uro. And yet , on making search , I
lee , have failed lo find the typical
mother where It seems she would bo so
easily found. I'havo no largo acquain
tance with the imilpinntivo lileraluro
of any language but pur own , and the
liction of other countries may afford
examples in this kind of which I know
nothing. But recalling the work of
our own llnest and best writers , their
treatment of the subject appears both
scant and slight. Calling the roll of
them from Fielding and Scott to Haw
thorne and Hardy , it strikes ono as
singular that they ono and all omitted
to delineate with any peculiar force and
beauty a human typo which suggests
itself so naturally as full of opportunity
for artistic representation.
Origin ofthe Term "liynch Iaw. "
It is not generally known that the
term " lynch law'1 originated in Camp
bell county , Vifginia , before the Revo
lutionary war , says the Pitteburgh Dis
patch. At that period the country was
thinly settled aud was infested with
lories and desperadoes too many of
Ihom apparently for the local authori
ties to adequately punish. Col. Charles
Lynch , a distinguished officer of the
Revolutionary army , undertook to rid
liis county of the outlaws. Ho
organized a force , arrested the
outlaws , and , having satisfied him
self anel comrades of the puilt
of the accused , tixecuted them without
reference to the constituted aulhorities.
While not altogclhor approving of the
despornlo remedy for a desperalo cause ,
the beneficial effect of Colonel Lynch's
iction was recognized und has" since
been known us ' 'Lynch's law" or "lynch
Lynch's process" of meting out speedy
justice extended to other parts of the
country , and is n well recognized form
of redress of grievances to-day , partic
ularly for that class of offenses' that are
popularly believed not to bo adequately
punished by the statutes and courts of
the state. Colonel Lynch's brothergavo
liis name lo Lynchburg , and left at > on

A Wild AVcstcrn Bank.
The bank of Devil Lake , D. T. , and
many of the business men in early days
Imd in use a design for checks and letter -
tor heads which was a starling curi
osity. A sheaf of wheat stooel upright ,
with a ribbon for a band was inscribed :
"No. 1 hard In hoc signo vinces. "
Above the sheaf was a silver dollar
resting on its edge , the refercnco being -
ing to the uniform price , $1 a bushel for
wheat In these days. Upon the dollar

other to the exact locution of the city

Arrf ! ll's Inscription of n 1'rlzo Fight
Between Trojan 81ngs ; rH.
The first prize fight of which wo have
any detailed description , says the Now
Orleans Picayune , was specially re
ported by the great Latin poet , Virgil ,
in the fifth book of the JEnoid. When
Prince Eneas was escaping with his
followers from the dcstructinn of Troy
ho anchored his fleet olT Iho coast of
Sicily and landed the men and women
for a season of rest. To celebrate the
occasion ho organized contests of archers -
ors , wrestlers and boxes , besides a re
gatta and foot-races. The prize fight
was between Entellus , an old athlete ,
and Dares , a young champion of tlio
ring. Wo are nol told if the marquis
of Quoonsberry's rules were used or not ,
buc there were scientific regulations.
Both champions had their fists armed
with gloves of rawhide and load.
Eutellus , "stripped of his quilted
coat , his body bared , composed of
mighty bones and brawn , " while Dares

Both on the tiptoe stand nt full extent ,
Their arms aloft , their bodies Inly bent ;
Their .beads from altalnc blows they bear

But with his warping body wards the

While Dares traverses and shlfto his place.
And like a captain who beleaguers round
Some stronghold castle on a riainp ground ,
Views all the approaches with observing
And more on art than on force relics.
Finally the old man grows warm and
rushes upon his antagonist :
Ho lays on loads with either hands amain ,
Nor stop nor stays , nor rest nor breath al-
But storms of strokes descend on Dares'
The young man is beaten and has to

A Geological Curiosity.
What is described as a geological cu
riosity is in the office of the acting
chief clerk of the United States war de
partment , Washington. It is a piece
of siono weighing about ono pound , 13
inches in length , lij inches in width
and i inch thick. Thcro is no doubl
about its being a genuine stone , but it
nevertheless possesses the flexibility of
a piece of India rubber. When taken
in the hand and shaken in the direc
tion of its fiat surface , it will bend back
ward and forward with a dull sound.
This is what is known as itacolumnile ,
or clastic sandstone. It is btaled lhal
a whole mountain of it exists in south-
era Nevada , a short distance east ot
Death Valley. It is found in California ,
Georgia and other localities in Iho
Divorce and Drunkenness Unknown.
In Lced's Valley , in Iho vicimlv of
Birmingham , Ala. , there is a colony
composed of a religious sect known.ns
Shormanites. There are about ono
hundred families , and a happier , more
contented people cannot bo found iu the
world. Their religious rites and cere
monies are peculiar. Who founded the
society none of them seems to know ,
but it is very old , as the fathers and
grandfathers of Iho presenl generation
were Shermanitcs. They chum lo fol
low Iho loachings of Iho Now Tcsla-
mcnt in spirit and loiter , and they be
lieve that only Shormanitos will inherit
the kingdom of heaven. They have
churches and have preachers and wor
ship in a raannarsimiliar to many other
religious sects. Ono of their peculiar
rites is the washing of feet. A fool-
washing service is hold once every
month , at which the preacher washes
the foot of every member of his church.
The members then in turn wash the
feet of Iho preacher and each other.
They are industrious and scrupulously
honoal. Divorce and drunkenness are
never known among them. The men
never cut their hair or boards.
