The discovery of America was n commot

North America , and , indeed , probably via

.Europe was Interested In Asia cornmer
dully. Mr. Fisko put brlelly , but In
high light the trade relations of the occldon
and the orient during tbo so-called durl
ages. But in the thirteenth contur
fiortio events occurred which brought uuou
a change. Most prominent among thos
was tbo rise of Moghol empireTb
members of that great dynasty were or
lightened to a dogroo. and at their Invltalio
it number of Frunclsclan monks visited Chin
and back to western Europe brought th
startling news that Asia on tbo east wn
terminated by a great ocu.in , not , as Ptolom ,
bad theorized , by swamps.
And hero Prof. Fisko prinked a very full
bullied bubble of popular history. Tno idc
of the earth being Hat was held by none bi
the Illiterate of that time. Aristotle ha
spoken of the sphericity of thu cartt

era the Idea ( the fact ) wns we
known. A very important point to romom

quoted many authorities to provo tbo poss

route , but hie IdeA had taken no hold , bi
causa as'yct thnro wus no necessity for gain
that way. In 1-110 the author of tno "Iinn ?

now well known that Christopher Columbu
possessed the book and wns largely influence
by It ; his marginally annotated copy Is noi

City Attorney Connell decided yesterday ,
after looking Into the matter thoroughly ,
that the triangular ploca ot land containing
about'-'CO acres nnd situated on th ) rlvor
bank just south of East , Omaha was the
property of the city , and not tno Union Pa-
clllo Uiilway company. A diagram of the

ordered the land In dispute to bo fenced In.

expecting tbo order , and whou it reAched him
early yesterday morning was ready with a
force of thirty men and several wagon loads
of material to commence work nt onca.
Once on the ground tno laborow turned to

planted nt tha foot of Cumin ? stwat and a
line of posts placed In position to the north

men laid off at noon-tliiio they had about
1,530 foot of yellow pine boird fence , llvo

Mr. Canada approached Street Commis
sioner Windspcar , who was still on tbo
ground In charco of the work , and notified
him "ofllclally" that ho was a trosspassor
nnd would bo hold responsible , nnd concluded
his llttlo speech by ordering Windspsnr , his

didn't work on Wlndspoar , however , who
merely replied that ho was acting under

Mr. C. S. Mullen IlcslKiix IIlH Position With
the Union I'ucllio Hallway.
The rcslgnntion of Charles S. Mellon ns
general traffic nianagar of the Union Pacific
is a surprise in railway circles , though a few
intimates profois having known that ho had
contemplated such a move for a considerable
time back. Tbo resignation will take effect
April 1 , and Mr. Mellon has accepted the
general managership of the Now York &
New England railroad.
Tho'near approach of the annual meeting
of the Union Pacific stockholders and the
rumors of a probable change In management
lead some railroad men to conclude that Mr ,
Mellon has improved an opportunity to an
ticipate a olg revolution in tbo olllco buildIng -
Ing ut tbo foot of Farnam street.
On the other hand thoso.wbo stand closest
to Mr. Mellon assort positively that the
change was made soUly for family considera
tions. Ho had been living ii Bosto.i before
joining the Union Pacliioforco , und bis fam
ily did not tuko kindly to the tar west. As a
matter of fact their homo was made In Chicago

in Chicago Mr. Mellon was lorccd to spend
much of bis time at New Ycrk and other dis

contemplated u return to tbo east nnd tbat-
the change- now announced Is simply la line
with his desire and has noslgnlllcunt bearing
upon any Union Pacific policy.
Mr. Mellon himself Is said to have been
well pleased with the west , and it Is thought

Sunday moruing. out found Farnam street
and other usually busy thoroughfares de
serted , and it was fully 7 o'clock before
thcro vas any stir. But , sny tno boy began
to scllatG0 : ! , from that tlmo until 0:3'J : la
three hours 180 minutes. In this time , If
tbo item is correct , the newsboy mentioned
sold 4E > 0 papers. This Is nt tbo rate of ex
actly two and one-half papers per minute , or
one every t\venty-four seconds. Any man
who has over bougut a daily paper Irom an
Omaha newsboy nnd watched him fumble
for the copy wanted nnd then waited while
the boy mentally calculated the dldorcnco
between the price of tno paper und the dime
or quarter handed him In payment nnd
counted back the change , will understand In
n decree the marvelous accomplishment of
this truly wonderful news buy.
There is Irttlo doubt that the item was
written bv the circulation editor. * .
Mrs. E. M. Lewis , Oxanna , Ala. , writes :
"For over twenty years I have buffered will

remedies and physicians tried during that

satisfactory results. It la almost as ludls-
pousablo to my comfort as my food. "
