OUR SPECIAL POLICE.
Ed. Tiwbuxe: I think a word should
bo said for our city marshals. Nevor in
tho history of North Platto has a big
crowd been handled with so little fric
tion as during tho reunion last week.
There was no blow or bluster, but a
quiet, careful, and I judge, systematic
caro for tho welfare and safety of the
citizens and guests. No robbery, no
fighting, and but very little drunkonness.
when tho size of the crowd is considered.
Something so unusual that I think

No poison brings death with moro
madening agony than ammonia, but that
fact does not seem to discourago tho
suicide. Tho man Harrowiiz, who dolib
rately swallowed si fatal dose ot tho drug
in Now York recently, is only ono of tho
many who have gone tho ammonia route
to death in spito of tho excruciating
pain. Dr. Blyth has recorded thirty
csises of ammonia poisoning in tho small
London district- of which lie is health
oilicor; Professor Mitchell mentions
twenty-two cases, and four havo occured
during tho chert timo Dr. Jenkins has
been connected with the coroner's office
in Now York.
Casc3 of slow poisoning from ammonia
aro of constant occurence among men
who work in its manufacture, or even in
decomposing substances which givo it
oif in considersiblc quantities. Ammonia
slowly and from day to day taken into
tho system, causes tho complexion to
looso its freshness, and tho skin of men
who get heavily impregnated with it has
a disagreeable blotched and discolored
Taken into tho stomach from day to
day in even tho small quantities used to
adulterate food, such as baking powder,
it not only injures the complexion but
af!ac'th'e"linirig'of the stomach, ami is
the eonrco of much general ill health.
The recent rapid increase in the hse of
ammonia for various purposes, and the
consequent increase in its manufacture,
havo made it ono of the most easily
obtained poisons and, silthough even
body is familiar with it in somo form,
thorc is a surprising amount of ignoranco
of its dangerous qualities. Its use as an
adulterant in any food preparation is
simply a crime, and as a crime should bo

The death of Miller Willis, the Georgia
evangelist, revives many interesting
stories concerning his life and methods.
He was certainly the queerest charactei
that ever preached the Gospel at a camj
meeting, at which places he was gen
erally found. His pure and holy life
however, was a model for all. But about
his methods: He frequently stopped
Btrangers in the streets, and planting
himself in front of them wonld annonnc
some startling text and then disappear
leaving the man or woman to preach tht
sermon to his or her own liking.
For instance, he on one occasiot
stopped a stranger and shouted in his
ears, "This night thy soul shall be re
quired of theel" Willis vanished. But
a year afterward he met the man in an
other city. Willis had forgotten him,
but the stranger knew his man. Ap
preaching him he extended his hand and
said: "That text you shouted out sc
strangely to me on the streets of Mil
ledgeville set me to thinking. It wa.
tho means of my conversion."
On another occasion, a dark, rainj
night in winter, he passed a crowded
hotel in tho city of Charleston. Met
were lounging and smoking in the lobby.
Willis opened the door, but the little
6gure in dripping garments attracted nt
attention. Suddenly, after rapping loud
on tho floor with his heavy stick, ever
eye was turned toward him, when Willii
said, "There won't be a man in thu
house alive in fifty yeara from tonight!'
And he slammed the door and went oul
into the night.
Some time afterward he was ap
preached by a young man on a street
car, who introduced himself by saying.
"I have long desired to meet j-ou and tc

The Key of Death.
About the year 1600 a stranger named
Tebaldo established himself as a mer
chant in Venice. Soon becoming infatu
ated with the daughter of one of tht
most ancient and wealthy families he
asked her hand and was rejected, tht
young lady being already affianced.
Half crazed and thoroughly enraged bt
planned revenge. Being an excellent
mechanic ho soon evolved a most formt
dable looking key. The handle of thu
unique weapon could be easily turned.
Being turned it disclosed a spring with a
missile in the shape of a needle of ex
quisite fineness. With this weapon Te
baldo waited at the church door until
the maiden he loved passed in on tht
morning of her marriage. When the
bridegroom appeared tho desperate lover,
unperceived, sent the slender poisoned
needle into his rival's breast, and within
an honr he was dead of a "strange, baf
Again Tebaldo demanded the hand of
the maiden, bnt was refused. Within a
few days both her parents had died in
a very mysterious manner. Suspicion
being excited, examination was made.
and the small steel instruments found
in the flesh in both cases. One day the
maiden allowed Tebaldo an audience,
but told him that she would never be
his bride. Within an hour she was a
corpse. Tebaldo was suspected, tne icey
discovered and the culprit hanged. The
celebrated "key of death" is still shows' ,

A Convenient Ring.
The following incident happened at
Orovillo. Cal.: It was a handsome soli
taire, and she evidently desired the jew-"
eler to know that it was her engagement'
"I would like to have this ring cat;4
down to suit my finger," said the hand
some heart smasher, as she flourished
tho brilliant ring before the eyes of the
Tho jeweler took the ring and smiled
he had seen it before.
"1 can fix that in a minute," replied
he. Screwing a magnifying glass in hisf
eye, and taking .a small sharp pointed
instrument in his hand, he touched a
minute button on the inside of tho ring
and made it tho exact sizer saying, as hi
placed it on her finger. "You see these
rings aro made in this manner for the
reason that they are worn by so many
different people: it is a great conven
ience." The young lady sailed out of the store
burning with indignation, and the rea
son she did not fly was because she dida't
have the wings. What did she think?
You know, and it is only necessary to
state that she did not wear the ring.
Another girl has it now, bnt this time
tho jeweler was not permitted to touch
the button tho young man did it him

A De;if Mute Cow.
Alexander Skerkoff, the Russian vet
erinary surgeon, reports the case of a
deaf mute cow. She is 12 years old, of
Algava breed, belongs to a Russian no
bleman, and has never showed signs of
hearing or been known to bellow. See
ing that other cows bellow, she tries to
imitate them, stretching out her head
aud opening her mouth, not, however,
producing the least semblance to a
sound. Two of her offspring have been
curiously malformed. One had its tail
directly between the eyes; it lived but a
week. The other is a full grown cow of
5 years, with her udder in her flank,
about eight inches from her backbone.
A station not very far from Pitts
burg, on the Baltimore and Ohio rail
road, has the good old English name of
Soho. In announcing it there is no op
portunity for the brakenien to disguise
the word, as he is too apt to do with the
names of other places.
As a train neared the town not long
ago the word was distinctly shouted,
and a passenger was heard to say to the
man sharing his seat:
"How many towns in this part of the
country have Indian names? Just think
of it Soho, Monongahela and Du
quesne, all near together. Youth's Companion.
