Ono Too Much Km- the Night Glcrk.
A good story is told of Ed Kennedy , ttio
night elork of the Leland , says the Merchant
Traveler. It was some tlmo after ho was in
stalled In Ins present position , before ho
could entirely throw on * the provincial habits
ho had acquired while clerking in it hotel In
Burlington , la. , where ho could sloop the
greater portion of the night mid seldom bo
disturbed. The first night ho was on watch
at the Leland a gentleman c.imo In very late
mid wanted u room. Ed was fust asleep , mid
it was with some diillculty the man could
arouse- him at all. When ho had partially
succeeded , ho asked if ho could got a room ,
and Ed , with a stretch and u terrible yawn ,
mumbled out "Dutiillno , " and sank back into
his chair. The stranger was tired mid he
wanted to goto bed , so ho shook Ed once
again and asked him where the nicht porter
was , to which Ed again replied , with nyawn
that discounted the last QUO , "Uumlino. "
The would-be uo3t became desperate , and
he resolved to help hlnmolf. Ho put his
name on the register and wont to the hey
rack , resolved to take the flrst key ho could
find und run chances. Being so tired , ho
dtHllkc'd tlio Idea of walking up stairs , so ho
woke Ed up onc-o moro und usued him If the
elevator was running , and Ed replied
sleepily , "Dumllno. " It suddenly occurred
to the stranger that ho might wander
nil over the house , climb four or
llva pairs of stairs , and a < lust , If ho
found the room , got bounced just as ho got
into boil , so ha tried once aguln , this time
tolllnc Ed ho would glvo htm a dollar if ho
\youltl gut up and show him a room. Ed nt
this halt struggled to hU feet , and , with no
attempt to suppress the capes and yawns ,
led the way upstairs , responding to the
Btrangor' nuestlou all the time with nls
"Dumllno , " The room was reached , the gai
lighted , und the muu boir.ui to remove his
garments. Ed fuHsed about tor u minute or
two , and seeing thu dollar was not forth
coming und now being pretty well awake ,
Bald : "Soy , where is that dollar ! " The
guest had just laid his vest under his pillow
when ho turned and , with some horrible con.
tortlons , imitating Ed's stretch and yawn to
perfection , said ia thu saino mumble :
A Trnvollnu Man'a Club.
Thotaslc of organizing and establishing n
traveling men's club in Omaha is being re
vived and doubtless eomo sort of action will
bo taken before long. The effort made la

having made a grievous mistake , therefore

"Had n funny thing happen mo a week erse
so ago down In Kansas , " said Andy Samples ,
of Kansas City , yesterday to a reporter , a
ho Bat In the lobby of the Paxton. "I took
an order from nn old fellow at Newton a fmv
months ago , and it suited him so nicely that

was feeling pretty tired and soon fell asleep.
When the conductor woke ma up I wat al
most home. My female companion had
left me , got off at some station
along the line I suppose. I grabbed my grip
and my box , took u cable uar nnd wont homo.
My wife linked mo what win in the box und I
told her a hat , and while I was washing my
face she opened it. Jerusalem ! what n row.
She called mo a villi.ui nnd monster nnd

managed to inquire what the devil was up ,
but she wouldn't iav a word und I looked in
the box. Ure.it Seottl There WIM a corset ,

Thrilling ICxperliMico of Thron You UK
l.uules on n Grrat .Moiitrnln.
Tlio thrilling experience of three la-
tlius who were lost on Mount ilood , mid
could neither L'cauh the top nor thu
bottom , Is reported by u party who have
just roturiiou from there , suya n. Port-
liuid , Ore. , special. Mount" Hootl , in
fact , is potting to bo quite n , summer re
sort , and this year more than over be
fore tents dotted the various strciims
iiloii the different trails up the
mountain , and every house nnd
settlor's cabin nlong the route was
lilled to overflowing by tnountnin climb
ers and summer tourlats. Among the
many families who wont into the
mountains to spend the heated term
was that of Mr. C. W. "Wilborff , of
Mount Tabor , who had with him sev
eral friends. The last two weeks were
spent , in the shadow of Mount Hood , at
Summit Prairie. As is the custom
with most campers , ouch day's pro
gramme , be it llshing or riding , was
faithfully carried out. The most exciting
feature of the programme was that of
climbing- Mount Hood. Lust Friday
the younger members of the party
started out to gain the summit. The
party consisted of throe men and six
ladies. Grater Koclc was reached by
live of the pasty , the others succumbing
at dilTcroiit points along the mountain
side. The party reaching the summit
of Crater Rock did not got back , to the
teams at the foot of the mountain until
7 o'clock at night , although thu iiscunt
was begun at 10 o'clock in the morning ,
When noses were counted on
arrival at the bottom ol the
mountain three were missing Miss
SaliioVilborg , Mrs. George Bonaii ,
and Mrs. Frank Morgan , of East Port
land. They were lost somewhere along
the mountain. Without delay the re
maining ones were driven back to the
camp , leaving behind on the mountain
two young men , Carry and Ketchum , to
build bonlires and lire signal iiuns.
Volunteer help BOOH arrived from
camps , and by" 10 o'clock , it is said ,
twenty men , with lanterns , dogs , guns ,
and horses , wore scourintr every nook
and crevice of Mount Hood for
the throe lost ones. Lnrgo signal fires
were built at intervals of every quarter
of a mile about the southeast and west
base of the mountain , and squads of
searchers had already oncompasbed the
vast luvn , fields above the timber line
without response to either a halloo or
gunshot. Shortly before midnight ,
away on the eastern slope of the moun
tain , near White river canyon , the
throe women were found , perched upon
a largo stone , huddled together , with
ono long polo with an iron pike at the
end which they had used as an alpen
stock and as a weapon of defense
against the panthers and wolves that
infostthe mountain side. They were
weeping with joy when they were found ,
and gladly recited their advouturo of
the night. They had taken the wrong
ravine ridge leading from oil the moun
tain , and liad wandered off. At various
times tliny heard the hcroams of the
panther and wolf , but wisely kept quiet.
They were returned to camp by the
searching party. They had boon on the
barren rock , 10,000 feet above the level
of the sea , with a fierce cold wind blow
ing against them , until they wore almost
frozen to death.

The farmer is scarcely recognized by
tlio railroad companies , says the Atnori-
: an Farmer. Lot him make a shipment
) y freight to go one or two hundred
nilos. It will sometimes take thirty
days and the produce ho sends is worth-
ess at the end of that time. What re
course hut ) ho on them ? Nothing ! They
will only laugh at him. But you leave
something at their depot , how soon
they will charge you storage or
lanwgos. The fanners are getting bled
.11 every direction. All they got is ,
some politician will ho around soon
talking wool , and , ho will.louva money
.n the saloon in your neighborhood for
your vote and toll you "you nro alt
ight. " lie sometimes gets as high us
550 to talk wool to you , and if the party
10 is working for gets elected , ho is
pretty sure to got a Rood position re
gardless of his Illness for it.
America' * IJiitter Kximrt.
It is a matter of wonder with a good
many why America does not export
more butter to the old country , and" es
pecially to England ; seeing that she im
ports a great deal moro than she makes ,
says the Amoricati'Dairyman.Vcllonc
reabon is that wo are many times as far
from her as is Franco , HollandSweden ,
etc. , that manufacture just as fiiiobuUor
as wo do. So you see the cost of trans
portation has something to clo with it ,
: is hns the delay in delivering it. There
is , howover.btill another cause , and that
is , that there is a demand , constant and
imperative in this country , for line but
ter at as high a price as Englishmen
are willing to pay. Why , then , should
wo seek a market 11,000 miles away while
wo have ono at our door practically
illimitable and at as high prices us
others are willing to pay. As the matter -
tor now stands , the only export from
this country worth mentioning is to
England , and that is of old packed but
ter for which there really is no sale in
this country. When they are ready to
accept our best makes at reasonable and
fair profits , the chances are wo will bo
able to supply the demand. Until then
lot us see how good an article wo can
make for ourselves.
An KKK Market.
That there is money in supplying
eggs for table use there is no doubt ,
says the Iowa Homestead. Wo believe
that moro money can be realized in this
than in the sale for fancy. If farmers'
and poultrymon generally would create
retail markets soil direct to the con
sumer they would not only secure food
prices , but would give moro general
satisfaction. The homo market is c"y-
ing for "fresh eggs. " Do they got
thorn ? Wo venture to bay there uro
moro stale eggs , ever one week old ,
palmed oil'to hotels , stores and fumiliou ,
than fresh ones. How many eggs are
broken open that do not show a rod
streak in the yolk ? How many aroused
used that do not have a stale llavor ?
Hotels are getting siok of it ; merchants
are afraid of it ; families are indignant
about it , and no wonder.
Hero is a farmer that lets his hens
run nt largo. They lay wherever
they please. In his search for ojgs
ho picks ono up hero and ono
thoro. Perhaps a week later
ho discovers avholo nest of
thorn ; they may have boon laid by
different hens the same day , or they
may have boon the accumulation of ono
hen in so many day * . It is the latter ,
moro Hkoly , but off to market they go ,
anyhow ; go as fresh oggs.
Hero is a man running an incubator.
At tno end of the fourth or fifth day ho
makes his test of eggs ; those perfectly
clear are infertile ; if the germ hns
started and died H can hardly bo seen
in so short a time. 6lT they go to mar
ket. The consiinibr never knows any
hotter. They nro perfectly safe to use ,
but they Irtivc the stale flavor neverthe
less , Tho3 may have boon laid two or
three weeks before they were put into
the incubator. Four days under the
heat of 10i ; degrees is equal to ono week
with no boat. But''tho ' consumer buys
"fresh oggs" all the sumo.
But bo lionobt if you will. Market
what you could make uflldnvit to as
being strictly fresh eggs , and BOO what
the result will bo.

In 1892-81 there was in Kansas no
moro popular direction for investment
of money , both by actual settlers and by
capitalists , than in sheep , says a writer
in the American Wool lioportor. In a
little ever two years the 420,402 sheep
in the state were moro than doubled ,
and still the demand was for moro. In
1884 moro than 1,200,000 snoop grazed
upon thu prairlos of the state , nnd then
came the reaction. To-day there are
about 400,000. What has caused the
The sheep craze was ono of the "pop
ular delusions" which have from time
to time inllioted Kansas. Men bought
sheep , not because they could care for
them , not because they needed moro

stock on their farms , hut for specula
tive purposes. The scheme of handling
them did not inoludo much shelter ,
much feed or much care , but a great
deal of profit. Throughout this btato
where the temperature drops in winter
to 120 ° below Kuro , men arranged to
keep great Hocks of sheep without shel
ter. They brought the Mexican razorbacks -
backs from the south , ana the hoavy-
wooled pamperedMorinosfrom the oast.
They were given the same care , or
rather lack of euro , and expected to
thrive. Suddenly everybody dis
covered that it did not pay , and
the rapiditv with which the bottom
dropped out ot the sheep market was
It "did not pay , " for several reasons.
First , the abominable care given the
stock. They were put in the hands of
inexperienced shepherds und cxpectud
to forage for themselves. As a 'result
the mortality was astounding , and some
times 50 per cent of tlio ilock were lost
in a single winter. Second , the sheet )
were puroliaseu in most instances with
borrowed money on which hi h rates
of interest was paid , thu result being , of
course , disastrous. Third , the decrcabO
in the price of wool which loft from 4
to 0 cunts loss margin per pound on the
production of the Hocks. Fourth , anil
the most important of all , an increasing
population in the sections of the state
best adapted to bhoop-rai&ing which
made the herder as much of an anomaly
as would bo a wood-chopping pioneer in
the valley of the Gencsco. The slate
had outgrown the pastoral ago and was
ripe for the agricultural ago which has
come upon it rapidly.
Knnsas is not n South American plain
with a torrid climate and a poverty-
stricken soil , when any sheep worth
$1.50 can have nn hero of land upon
which to subsist. It is a siato fitted for
the higher forms of cereal and fruit
culture , and is coming to those rapidly.
Diversified farming , such as the east
cnows so well how to carry on will make
Kansas great , and her people tire rec
ognizing it. In that system , with the
rich soil separated into Holds and or
chards , with cattle , horses and poultry
jrowing to maturity on the farm , there
is no room for the roaming sheep with
its demand for unlimited prairie range ,
[ n moderate flocks with the grade being
continually raised , and witli mutton nnd
wool , the two objects of its existence , it
can form a valuable adjunct to the farm
er's prosperity. How some men have
changed their methods to the moro ra
tional and more modern ones , and their
present condition on account thereof , I
will detail in a succeeding letter.

What well directed training schools
can accomplish is illustrated in the
case of the dairy schools of Denmark.
The government lias for years spoilt

an immense improvement in dairv pro
ducts , and a lively demand for Danish
butter. Within twenty yours Denmark's
