Cattle men Iti the western part of the slat
are accustomed frequently to give clmttc
mortgages upon their herds of stock. Late
tlio mortgage Is either paid or some arrange
ment Is made with the mortgages whcnb ;
the cattle may be shipped to the Soutl
Omaha market and the proceeds divided be
tween the contracting parties. Sometime
the cattle are removed from the range with
out the consent of the mortgagee am
shoved on the market clandestinely and suit
are started These chattel mortgage case
turn ! h an abundant field of llt'gitlan. Judg
Dufile and a Jury are wrestling with one c
them and It promises to become a test cas
before It IK ultimately decided. The proaen

comes from Holt county.
It seems that In June , 1S91. Hugh 0 Net
had several hundred head of stock runnln
on the range. Ho went to the \Vllcy Cattl
and Trust company , a corporation , and st
cured largo sums of monuy at various time !
footing up In the course of time to nbot
J7.700. I'art of hla stock he nftcrwar
turned over to the corporation. Forty -si
animals v > ere delivered to Holt county pai
tics , who shipped them to J. A. Ilralnard an
others , commlbslon men of South Omnlii
who proceeded to sell to the packers , ieall <
Ing $1,500 from the sale Ncal claims h
had permission to dispose of the stock.
The Wiley people have sued the Soul
Omaha commission men for the | lnoO , thong
the defendants allege that they simply r <
celved commissions and turned the proceed
over to the Holt county shipper.
The peculiarity of the case lies In the fai
that as the mortgage wus on record In Ho
county It Is claimed that It was a notice t
nil the world that the Wiley company ovvne
the stock and nobody else cnuld sell tli
steers , consequently the South Omaha con
mission men should have known that tli
stock was not shipped to them by the owi
crs. The commission men are much vvorke
up over the suit , because It Is stated that
they have to look up the legal pedigree c
every bunch of steers that passes throug
their hands they will be compelled to kcc
men out scouring the country to exam n
records and cattle brands to make sure th ;
their title Is good. This would break thei
up In business , It Is claimed.

Union Pacific Officials Explain How Thej

There Is considerable speculation going 01
at Union Pacific headquarters as to Just wha
here Is In the rumor that a committee o
consolidated Cs of the Oregon Short Line (
Utah Northern has decided not to take tin
> roperty In Utah under Judge Merrill'
order. It Is thought by some of the olllelal ;
hut a deep-laid scheme Is being played Ii
order to ha\o effect upon Judge Merrltt
Olhers bel'cve Ihat It Is an admission o
defeat on the part of those moving for i
separate receiver for the Oregon Short Lin
& Utah Northern. H Is believed that th
ictlon of Judge Merrltt was known to th
committee In New York and consequent ! ;
the committee had nothing else to do but I
refuse to accept the property under th
crms of the order.
Three propositions am to be considered be
fore Judge Merrltt next Tuesday. First , th
ssuance of recel\ers' certificates , upon whlc
Judge Merrlttt was silent when he hando <
Io\\n his opinion In the Short Line case
This matler is ono of Imporlanco an
rightly comes up at this time. But upon th
wo other pioposltlons there Is great dl
vergence of opinion ; second , to modify hi
order so as to permit .Inhn M. Ugan t
assume the duties of receiver Independent o
any other receiver , and third to perml
ho trust company to operate the northen
Ine , leasing the Southern ExtenMon on th
lands uf the presetn receivers. It Is no
thought Judge Merrltt will change his orde
upon thc e two propositions , although pull
Ic opinion In Salt Lake has bee
> renounced against him for mak ng the orde
which practically shut the American Loa
md Trus.1 company out of managing the prop
erty through a receiver. Merrltt Is looke <
upon aj one of the able Jurists of the wes
and it Is belle\ed he will adhere to his orlf
Inal order , founded , as It is alleged , upon a
absolute rightful construction of Iho sltua
No matter what Is done , the present re
cehcrs of the Union Pacific state that the
will continue to operate the Short Line <
Utah Northern for the next six months , a
least , and probably longer If It Is determine
to buy the property under foreclosure prc
ccedlngs and sale , as It will take some Urn
to perfect an organization to bu
the property. Men of financial re
sources are leaving the money cer
tors of the country and It will bo bte I
September before any plan Is decided upo
to take the property. Then congress , the re
celvers contend , Is expected to take up
funding- bill this winter , which will undoubl
edly Include the Oregon Short Line & Uta
Northern In the terms of reorganization , s
that upon the whole , unless something I
lone very soon , It Is easily seen how month
will Intervene before the Short Line sltun

the name of the "Death Trap , " and the pea
whereon It Is located Is called Death Tra

and It Is only an old and experienced guld

The stone Itself Is described as being

through the shale of Its surroundings , read

about seven feet , when a sharp projcctlo

wide. Ordinarily the rock Is of a blue , mi

action , being seamed and ribbed as If b

the sun shines squarely upon It , the Eton

they were astonished b yond measure to ee

Conforming to the laws enacted by the lasl
congrcas , the government has taken the ncc
essary steps to create three national military ;
parks on the three great battlefielJs of the
civil war , Chlckamauga , Gettysburg ani
Shlloh. None of the e parks will bo merely
ornamental pleasure grounds. The prime Idtn
Is to restore those historic fields to substan
tially tin ? condition they were In at the times
of the battles , and In harmony with that Ue.
the parks to bo created on their sites will be
devoted strictly to the Illustration Of the su >
ireme struggles which rendered them famou !
tor the benefit of future generations rathei
than of surviving participants. In these
parks every Incident of the battles will hi
treated from the Impartial standpoint of tils
tory , without sectional animosity or bias , atr
In all the markings and monuments rlgk
Justice will be shown alike to the vanquished
and victors. Chlcanmuga and Shlloh were
the most memorable contests of the war Ir
the west , and Gettysburg was tlio most mo-
mer.tous conflict In the east , and In all thrci
the most distinguished generals , union urn
confederate , commanded , and troops fron
tjplcal sections fought , so that by securing
and preserving those fields Intact , as repre
sentatlve examples of the greatest battles o :
the war , the government will be able te
perpetuate their history In a concrete physlca
form for all time to come.
The Chlckamauga park Is to be dedicatee
with most imposing ceremonies on Septetnbci
19 and 20 next , under tne direction of tin
secretary of war , with the president and cabl
net participating , together with committee !
of congiess , botli house and senate , the su
preme court , the general of the army and tin
admiral of the navy , the governors of tin
forty-four states and the survivors of thi
beveral armies , union and confederate , en
gaged nt Chlckamauga and Chattanoogi
thirty-two years ago. The dedlcat'on will bi
a red-letter event of the year.
When completed the park will be the mos
comprehensive and extended military objec
lesson In the world It contains 7,600 acres
and the central driveway , passing througl
and overlooking all the heavy fight ni
ground , Is twenty miles long. The old roadi
of the battles have been reopened and nev
roads closed. Over forty miles of the mall
roads of the field have Been rebuilt In i
substantial manner. The details of the sh
battles Chlckamauga , Missionary Ridge
Lookout Mountain , Orchard Knob , Wan
hatchle and Brown's Ferry are being se
forth upon historical tablets w thin the park
These tablets , numbering atiout 2,000 Ii
all , are cast Iron plates , tour feet by threi
feet , with embossed letters. After castlnj
the plates were glared black and the em
bossed letters whitened , making the Inscrlp
tlon distinct at a distance. Each plate wll
contain from 200 to 4uO words of hlstorlca
text and w 11 be fastened to an Iron post se
in concrete. They mark the positions o
army headquarters , corps , divisions am
brigades , both union and confederate , OIK
tlio parts taken by each organization an
concisely stated.
Under the recent law establishing a na
tional park at Gettysburg , Introduced bj
General Daniel C. Sickles and approved It
February last , the government will at onci
proceed to acquire 800 acres and rights o
way over avenues owned by the Gettysbun
Battlefield Memor'al association , and alsi
to acquire other lands on the battlefield b ;
purchase or condemnation. Additional roadi
will be opened and tablets will be set u |
definitely marking the lines of the troops 01
both sides. The rights , however , of state :
and military organizations to plats of groum
on which markers and monuments have al
ready been placed will In no wise bi
prejudiced. The Gettysburg National Par !
commission , like that of Chlckamauga park
will co-operate with state commissions Ii
fixing positions that are not yet determined
A spec'al ' and noteworthy taature of tlii
Gettysburg park , authorized in the Sickle :
law , will be a great bronze xable : on i
pedestal bearing a medallion llkcress o
President Lincoln and the whole of his ini
mortal address on the occasion of the Na
tional cemetery dedication at Gettysburg i :
November 19 , 1SC3.
There are now nearly J2.0100UOcrth c
monuments on the Gettysburg n > ld , eiectei
by states and regimental organl/.ntlons an
military societies. Hut until a couple o
years ago , notwithstanding all these mem
orlats , there were no iines of battl
marked and a visitor to the Held , no'icini
the absence of monuments on the cnnfcd
orate side would prompted to ask "Agalns
whom were the union troops fighting ? " Thi
lack will now be supplied and fie 1 lies nt aj
troops will be carefully InJlcit'd by 'ahle-ts
as at Chlckamauga , without renmro am
without praise , and above all with lihioilca

beln , however , had no notion of looking ou

Ing a sharp eye for disabled comrades an
especially for Adjutant Bartholomew , Whe :
this officer was wounded bo did not fall a
once , but ftaggereel outside of the federal
ranks , and In a moment was between r the
hostile line.
Then It was that thp | ad showed tlio stuff
of which ho was made , for without heeding
In the least the Irndon rain of bullets or the
screaming shot nnd shell , ho rushed up to
his friend , caught him as In his delirium
no was wandering aimlessly about , and man
aged to pilot him without further hurt from
the field , and to a comparatively quiet place ,
TJicro the lad gave the officer a drink from
his canteen and then rushed away to find
the regimental surgeon. When that officer
arrived Bartholomew was unconscious , but
BOOH revived a little.
"I felt the doctor pushing his fingers Into
my wound , " says Bartholomew ; "ho felt In
and around It , and I then heard him tell
Jennlo It was no use , that I was nearly
dead , and that it would not be worth while
to move me. "
Then the doctor left , but Langbeln would
not abandon his frleml. The boy was not
strong enough unaided to carry the officer
away , but ho hunlcd up Charley Wiley , the
drum major , a big , strapping fellow , and to
gether they managed to convey the uncon
scious man to a house near by , where he
was placed upon a bed. LJngbeln's devotion
to his friend did not ceasa wth his re.'cuc
from the field , however. Later In the day
the confederates were reinforced and the ;
folcrals had to retreat , and so hastily that
It was not n quesllon of laklng care of the

army wagon and staved by him until ho was

"Jennie" was awarded a thirty days' fur
lough for his heroism and went back to his
father and mother In New York with a lettet

still proud , beslelcs being mentioned In gen

until early In the present year.
"Tho last time I saw Colonel Baker he
was being cart led en two muskets , with his
cap and his sword on his breast and his halt
iragglng In the dust In other word" , he
was being landed from a scow on Hairison's
Island , having Just been kllle l in battle upon
Ball's bluff , " remarked Mr. A. J. Bellows ,
giving some of his war reminiscences to o
reporter of the Portland Oregonlan.
"I saw that battle , and , as It was the fir * !
time I ever smclled gunpowder , I remeinbet
It very clearly. I was a drummer boy In
the Mfteenth Massachusetts , the regiment ol
Colonel Dovcns , afterward United States at
torney general. Tlmt night I beat the lone
roll and we fell In and went down to Ed
ward's ferry. About daybreak Colonel Bakct
arrived I heard him ask Colonel Devon-
about the transportation. A scow nnd o
flatboat , which were filling with men , were
pointed out. and he said , with a bert of a
laugh : 'Well , evidently they don't Intend
for many of us to come hick. '
"There had been skirmish firing some fou :
or five miles off In the direction of Lcesbuig
but soon after this the battle opened It :
earnest. Our regiment had two howitzers
In the middle of the stream , on Harrison's
Island. It was not long before orders came
to pass over those guns , and I sneaked In as
one of the detail and went over.
"I had Just got en top of the bluff when
Colonel Baker came riding back. Dismount

was the only time during the war I saw the

"Being a musician , my place was with the
wounded on Harrison's Island. I had scet :
enough. I let the horse go , climbed dour
the banks and got Into the last boat thai

Wednesday , the 19th Inst. , was the eight-

loo. Of the hundreds of thousands ol
men who struggled that day for supremacj
all have passed away , except two in America
four In the British Isles and six In France ,
and most of these are centenarians
There Is another , who , although not a par
ticipant in the great battle , had the pr.vilege
of witnessing the thrilling events of thai
week In Belgium which marked the downfall
of the Napoleon dynasty and who viewed thai
battle from a better vantage ground , perhaps
than any of the participants. That man Is
James R. Green of Ellsworth , O. , who la 91
years of ago.
The old gentleman ) was born In Bolton
Lancashire , England , on July 25 , 1798 , an ;
entered the English navy at the age of K
as a midshipman. The next year his ship
was employed In transporting the English
soldiers for Wellington's army across the
channel from Southampton to Antwerp , and II
was at this time that he accidentally wit
nessed Waterloo , in * iaJ8 he entered the
East Indian merchant ffvice , and for many
years voyaged In the Atlantic and Indian
oceans , making many trips around the Cape
of Good Hope to Delphi , Calcutta and Bom
bay. In 1S20 he made his first voyage tc
America In a sailing vessel , It requiring
twelve weeks to cross the stormy Atlantic
Since then ne has crossed the Atlantic
twenty-three times.
Mr. Green was In a reminiscent mood when
seen by a Cincinnati Inquirer correspondent ,
and talked Interestingly of the great battle.
"I v , as a midshipman In June , 1815 , on one
of King George's transport ships , " he said ,
"and with the other 'middles' started across
Belgium to Join the English troops.
"We came first to Ligny , where the pre
liminary battle of that terrible week In Bel
gium took place. That fight was between the
Prussians under Biucher and Napoleon's
veterans. The conflict did not last long , bill
It stands as one of the most desperate light :
of history. Biucher was compelled to give
way , and his retreat was almost a rout
Flushed with tuccess , Napoleon pushed on t <
his fate at Quatrc-Bras and attacked the out
posts of the English on the 17th.
"At Quatre-Bras Napoleon was repulsed
falling back to Waterloo that night , when
he determined to make his final stand.
"On the morning of the 18th , with a sea
glass which we had taken with us , wo stooi
on the heights some distance away fron
Waterloo and took In the whole scene. Wi

along his lines preparing for the battle. Tin
lines were formed and soon the field wai
filled with smoke and the roar of cannot
reverberated through the hills of Belgium
In the afternoon the fierce conflict ceasei
and the field was a sickening sight. Tin
green rye had been trampled down and tin
field was nothing but dust like the mldJli

liy scattered thickly over the great plain

If the alchcmltts of the sixteenth century
could take a peep Into the modern photo
graph studio they would experience an
electric shock at the scientific beauty Into
which their early efforts have culminated.
Since the time of Thomas Wedge-wood , who
was the first to discover the value of the
action of light upon a sensitive surface , nuch
gigantic strides have been taken In the art
that soon tha very coloring of the flesh and
bloo.l will appear on our ciute do visiles.
The old-time daguerreotypes , which made
their entree In 182 1 , under the guidance ot
DiRuerre ; the ferrotype , brought out by
Robert Hunt a little later , and the ambrotypo
of a still later period , ore made to hide their
diminished heads before the splendor ot pro
portions their rival brothers have assumed ,
Not so very loirg ago one's features could
only bo Immortnllred n la silhouette , by
tracing with a black poncll the shadows ot
the1 profile ot the face cast by u can lie on
white piper ; melancholy , ghastly heirlooms ,
cherished by this generation , as belonging tea
a time when "all things were new. "
There Is no feat now too dltllcillt for tha
photo student to attempt ; the camera , ftom
being the wonder of the age , has become a
household companion.
The craze for anything nnd everything
new. tiys a New York correspondent , has
entered this field wllh the remit ot turning
out n number of quaint devices by which
the photograph of a friend may be > carried on
one's perron , with good artistic effect. Of
these , perhaps , the case Is the most
commonly seen ; n man with a sweetheart
must first have thought of this arrangement
by means of which the face he most admit cil
could be brouglk before him nt will The
hard surface of the gold c.vso takes very
kindly to the photographic solutions , and the
finish Is as beautifully fine as tlu > italntlest
cabinet. A few appear with the decoration
on the outside of the case1 , If It Is not already
carven , but the favorite style Is the Inner
side , where the photogiaph Is shielded from
dust and too glaring light Photograph pipes
are a decidedly new Invention , and altogether
fetching , not lo speak of the expense , are
these bits of "manly" trifles.
One of these , noticeable for Its delicacy
nnd ilchncss , is in tlio possession of a New
York club man , who earnestly declares that
the fragrant weed Is never no soul-satisfying
as when Inhaled through the medium of thin
bit of clay ; and no wonder. What man
could not be "carried to the skies" on clouds
of fragrant tobacco , with the vision of the
fair joung face to softly Imprinted on tlio
pipe's bowl , always beaming sunny smiles nt
him ! And then the glitter of the Jewels !
the gleam of the large rubles , lingo all his
dreams loty red , and the tiny diamonds sot
lieie and there at its base glisten llko his
love's eyrs.
The meerschaum must bo richly colored
to set off the decorations. Small turquoise
fotm a pretty contrast to the gorgeous > el-
Ions and browns of the pipe.
Bric-a-brac present another form of pre
serving photography ; some wonderfully line
effects have been produced by means of
transferring a pretty face on the Hat tur-
face of a dainty vase.
This is usually done before the last firing ;
so as to preserve all the beauty of the pic
ture Intact. U Is then proof against ravages
of tlmo and weir.
It is a pretty bit of remembrance to offer
to a friend to whom the photv ) alone would
seem too small a gift. One of the most novel
forms this fad has assumed Is shown by
a bright Vassar girl , who wears upon her
boating dress a set of huge buttons , each
showing the faca of her favorite chssmato
and all beautifully set In a burnished gold
frame. A tiny art gallery , and sufficient
at a moment's notice to call up hosts ot
pleasant recollections Another way In
which the pretty facs may be carried with
one on a long journey , when any bupsr-
lluous cargo Is Inadvisable Is In the buckle-
of one's belt. A inott unique arrangement
and one eliciting decided approval If one
may Judge from the number being worn.
A very smart ons is worn by a young
woman who counts her diamonds by the
dozens , and who has spared no expense In
the setting of this small but costly trifle.
It Is a younger sister's face peering out
from the rich setting of large pearls set In
filagree gold ; the whole surface Is richly
chased , giving color and tone to the milky
whiteness of the priceless pearls. The face
Is beautifully tinted , making one think ot
the dainty Ivory miniatures of long ago.
Then there are those set In frames of gold
or silver without the Jewels , but the rich
ness Is necessary to lend the photograph
the prop ° r tone.
The daguerreotype lockets are a swagger
d vice for the photographed face which wo
do not wish exposed to the gaze of the
"common herd. "
They are In the form of huge silver hearts ,
much larger than an ordinary watch ; their
frosted surface bears the monogram of the
wearer In largo English letters , and to it
hangs an excecdliily long , slender sliver
chain , which Is worn thrown carelessly over
the shoulders , allowing the heart to drop
where It pleases. I
Inside the dainty face of a girl friend ( or
of a sweetheart , since no one will see ) , 11 ts
In b autlfully ; opposite Is Inscribed some
quaint legend , supposed to ward off all at
tacks of the "Evil Eye. "
It Is odd to note tint among all this col
lection of feminine and masculine adorn
ment the face of a man seldom appears ; It
may bo duo to 4he utter hopelessness ot
anything artistic In their get-up , or to thp
undue modesty of the fair ones , who shrlnlf
from displaying the pictured face of their
"Prince Charming" to the public.
