It is a source of regret in North

It is hardly possible that Col. Hill's

- It is encouraging to note that TnE
Tribute's correspondents from Farnam
and Wallace report that there is an
active demand for land in those sections.
And it may be stated that the demand is
not confined to these two localities, for
the same condition exists in all the terri
tory south of the river and along the
Platte valley. If the transfers of real
estate in Lincoln county are not heavy
this year The Tbiboke will be greatly
mistaken, for the indications certainly
point that way.
We understand that Bratt & Co. are
preparing to have their tract of land

Ex-Judge Church, of North Platto,
was in the city yesterday on his way to
Wyandotte, Kansas, to try an important
lawsuit The Judgo is a lawyer of
marked ability, and the only reason he
is not on the bench of his district to-day
is because during the canvass a year ago
ho refused to libel western Nebraska and
allude to bis opponent as a cringing tool
of corporate monopoly and a venal vam
pire pf the most detestable antecedents.
He made an hQnerablo fight and accepted
defeat with perfect composure, feeling
that it was better to be right than sit on
the bench in calamity robes, holding a
senatorial rod for a shaft of lightning
that never strikes, as his opponent is
doing, even as these lines are written.

While camped over on Oak creek ia
the ssmmer of 1883 1 was an eyewitaeer
to one of the saott novel of combats. At
noon one day as I was comiag dowm
from the mine for dinner I spied a skosk
shifting itself about in a straage aaaa
ser.x Thinking he was performing, soas
acta that were unusual andrwt baeosaiasr
to one of his face, Isat down, and witk
ray powerful marine glass I soon- f oun4
the reason. Before the skunk upon the
ground lay a huge rattlesaake coiled up
for business, his massive flat bead pre
senting a most savage aspect.
Now and then .raking bis head as the
skmnk would, coma within reach, ha
struck it again aad again. "TEe skunk,
as if anxious to continue the dnel,r would
pounce upon the back of the snake until
driven off by the powerful swaying to
and fro of its body. This was repeated
again and again until finally with one
heroic spring the skunk landed upon the
snake, and in the twinkling of an eye
almost had bitten the head from the
body, save a shred of skin which held
together. Being satisfied with the re
sult, I hastily picked up a rock and
throwing it at the skunk routed him,
leaving me in full possession of the field.
On examination I found the hide of
the rattlesnake uninjured save where
the skunk had given it its death cut in
the neck. The same evening and for six
consecutive evenings I saw the skunk,
and on the seventh evening shot it after
it had scampered around for that length
of time. This satisfied me that rattle
snake bites do not materially retard the
progressive life of a "polecat," to say
nothing of proving fatal thereto. The
snake was 3 feet 6 inches in length, with
nine rattles. The snake's hide I kept
until recently wore it out as a hat band.
The rattles I still have. The skunk is
the only animal (to my knowledge) that
will not succumb to the deadly bite of
the "rattler" unless medical aid is in
voked. Forest and Stream.

"I was in San Francisco and. strolled

Dick Goodwin, addressing the experi

An Old Practice.
The practice of throwing an old shoe
after a bride is, it seems, quite misap
plied when it is done -by some of her
companions for luck; According to the
spirit of the ceremony, which is of very
ancient lineage, it should be done by the
parent or guardian of the bride, as indi
cating a renouncing of all authority
over her. Chieftains in feudal times
took off their shoes and handed them to
their conquerors in token of accepted
defeat, from which practice this slipper
throwing custom ia said to have de
scended. As, however, in these modern days a
worn slipper in the parental hand has a
distinct and. obvious significance, it is
well perhaps that the rite of weddings
has undergone revision. Some irrev
erent spirit might dub its observance as
the "Passinsr of the SnanlrM-" tth-

There is not the slightest doubt but the
stuffing of poultry ruins the flavor and
makes a good dinner hard to digest.

question asked me at a lecture, -where I
was trying to convert my audience to the
above fact. "Why. how do von keen tb

of course, "cave in," as the stuffing does
nofm the least hold the carcass in shape.
Truss the turkey and roast it just as
you would ordinarily, and behold the
differenceinflavor. You will never stu
poultry again. After it is in good shape
dust with pepper and put a goodly quan
tity of melted butter over its breast. Born
it into a hot oven and after thirty min
utes cool down the fire. Boast without
water, simply basting -with the melted
butter and the fat in the pan, for twenty
minutes to each pound of turkey. Do

A Made Over Oowa.
A bright girl, with more of a dmotsk
in her head than at her banker's, has)
made herself a fascinating fall costume
out of a last year s gown. The skirt of
tne gown, which was of dark wool, ska
nt and fitted over to the desired shape.
It was a dull, reddish, rough stuff, and
with a little quilling of velvet doubled
together and plaited she finished the
edge. Then a black velvet coat, relic of
finery, was made to do duty as a little
jacket, cut shorter than the Eton model,
slashed up the back to the neck and
edged all around with a finish of jet.
The top of her skirt she edged about
with a double bias fold of velvet, fitted
neatly, and less than, two inches wide
when aU finished, and this she hooked
over a full waist of the gray green and
bine tartan -wool, checked off -with a
thread of scarlet in silk. St. Loisk
