It to 11 Rrlsht Moon
light. Charles Kewh of Kait Litchfield. Conn.,
who has hunted In Maine and Teas, had
an experience recently which surpassed
anything he had known In his Ufa before.
As he waa feeding hla pigs he heard Ills
pointer do howling with pain and on
turning aaw the animal being lifted from
the ground In the talon of a bald eagle.
Keuch attacked the bird wjth a trowel,
whereupon the entile dropped the dog and
turned Its attention to the man.
For ten minutes Keuch had to work hard,
but finally succeeded In getting In a blow
on the head which atunned hla antagonist,
after which he killed it. The bird meas
ured eight feet six Inches across the out
spread wings and six feet from head to
I'p to a few yeara ago there waa a law
against killing eagles, but It was repealed
at the Instanoe of a Stonlngton man who
aid the birds were dangerous down his
way. Thia Is the first recorded Instance la
Connecticut where a man has had to kill
one in self-defense.
KoDlhrrnrr'i First View of Know.
"This Is the first snow that 1 huve ever
seen," said George E. Johnson to a Mil
waukee Sentinel Reporter, at the Gllpat-
. rlrk hotel. "I have lived all my life In
Tampa, Fla., and cannot recall of ever
i seeing snow. I went to bed last night
Immediately after supper beacuse I was
tired out from the effects of a long train
ride. When I awoke this morning and
looked out of the window, you can Imagine
my surprise at seeing the ground a'l cov-
1 ered with snow. At flrat I thought It
waa still night time and that the moon
was shining. I took a walk down the
street about 10 o'clock and something struck
me with the force of a falling house.
Then I realized that I was really going
through the experience of a northern snow
storm, snowballs and all."
Too Mnrh of a Oood Thine
Arthur Kehr, a Chicago musiclRn, who
' lias been married Just sixteen days, has
sued for divorce. Too much love. Is the
plea lie makes for disunion. He married
Mary Rogers, a young widow. Hero is his
own story I
"You never saw anything like It In all
your born days. She would sit on my lap
by tho hour, and If I wanted to go ncross
, the street for a package of tobacco she
would order mo to stay where I was and
do the errand herself, because she was
afraid some girl might run off with me.
"8lie wanted to be kissed In the morning
and kissed at noon and kissed at night. I
could never get away front the passionate,
despairing cry: 'Arthur, kiss me!'
"I was a prisoner In my wife's house.
The week I waa there I earned only $4.20,
because she wouldn't let me go out to play.
1 had to be with her all tho time, getting
"There was only one thing for me to do,
and I did It ran away. I wouldn't go back
to her for anything." '

For seventy years Mr. Lucas had no need
of the attention of a physician. Less than
a year ago he felt a decline In health

following advice to those who would emu

"Good health Is as great a requisite of

Owing his life to Miss Mary Day Leo a
curator's assistant, who sucked tho polstm
from the bite of a gila monster In his right
hand. Frank Gillian, an attendant In the
Children's museum, Bedford Park, Brook
lyn, returned to the museum and learned
that the reptile that sent him to the hos
pital for six weeks Is dying. It Is unable
to stand the cold of a northern winter and
death Is expected In t few days.
Ordinarily the blto of a Blla monster Is
as deadly as that of a rattlesnake. Gillian
was bitten on October X, when cleaning
tho monster's tank. Its teeth sank deep
into the flesh, and several seconds elapsed
before he could pry Its jaws open.
After Gillian had bathed hla hand In
alcohol. Miss Lee lacerated It with a sharp
knife. Then she applied her lips to the
Wound and sucked out the poison. In
pile of her heroic action Gillian's hand
began to swell. An ambiilanoe surgeon

CONDITION OF OMAHA TRADE
Merchants Coming to Omaha
Spring Trade Rates.
MUSLINS SHOW A DECLINE
But Dry Gooda Drnlrrt Do 2Vot Be
Hove the Tendency of All Goods
la ToTrnrd av Loner
Trade Is bettor, winter goods are selling
out at the retail stores as they have not
sold before; the weather belntf mild. Mer
chants will clean up well and are bcKin
nlng to buy for spring. In some lines
there are Inducements for buying, as prices
are off In several lines.- but as there Is no
general tendency to lower price's It Is not
believed there will bo further declines. It
Is an opportunity to buy dry goods at the
present time and the merchants are taking
advantage of It.
Merchants are corning to Omaha under
the condition offered by the Jobbers' and
Manufacturers association, which Is com
posed of wholesalers who pool to pay the
fares of customers who come to Omaha to
trade. It Is thought that 2 per cent of tho
stock bought will pay all railroad fares
and It makes no difference how many
wholesale houses are patronized the.y ail
help to pay the railroad fares, and Indica
tions are that the amount which will be
paid by Omaha merchants will be larger
than ever before.
One or two other Jobbing centers have
adopted the Omaha plan, but as Omaha
wholesalers have been paying railroad
fares for two Drevlous nenannu iiw.a
began for the spring of VMM will reap hut
little, as the Omaha customers are coming
In from all points in the western states.
Mnallna Show Decline.
Following the reduction In tho prices of
prints last week, the muslins have had a
sharp decline during the last week. The
fruit of the loom and IxmsUule muslin has
dropped to H to-K cents, while some of
the brands have come down as low as 6Vi
Tho sharp declines should not bo taken
to mean that the general tendency of the
dry go6da market is toward a lower level.
Prints, staple ginghams and niuxlins uro
down temporarily, but a careful survey of
tho market would indicate that the present
is only a good opportunity to buy the lines
which are down. V
While prices on printed shirtings de
clined a cent when prints declined, per
cales remained unchanged. The cut on
ginghams applies to stuple goods. The
line yarn goods remain unchanged.
Dry goods dealers are of the opinion
that the declines at this time are unfortu
nate, as nothing should occur which will
tend to hrrak the confidence of buyers In
tho market values, and while they would
be glad to have prices lower, the present
Is a bad time to record decline
Linens are picking up. A decided. Mm
provement has been noted during the last
week. Retailers who refused to do any
ojM-ratlng In November and December, are
ordering enough goods to cover their
present needs. Kven with this demand the
prices are low and the retailers should snap
up linena on sight, as the present lines are
now 15 per cent higher at tho mills than
In Omaha jobbing houses. Towels. . nap
kins, doilies, etc., have been In special re
quest and the prices at which the goods
have been selling are very low A few
weeks ago the goods could not be sold
even when offered at much less than thev
are now bringing.
Druggists are having a good trade, but
there Is little change in prices. The out
look for spring trade is good and paints
and oils will doubtless move rapidly within
a, fw weeks.
Quinine on the spot continues steady with
a moderate msuming demand, and manu
