Hypnotism mesmerism by which
ever name you choose to call it is a
subject of special interest to everybody
at present , and everyone would be
pleased to have ocular demonstration of
some of the wonderful phenomena pro
duced by this wierd art or science.
Opportunities , however , are few ; but
those curious to learn the modus oper
and ! may do so from reading the de
scription of "A Hypnotic Seance , " il
lustrated with pictures taken from life ,
published in Demorest's Family Maga
zine for September. It is by thus giv
ing special attention to timely topics ,
keeping "in touch" with the sentiments
and new ideas of the day , thatthis ideal
Magazine has achieved its well-deserved
popularity. Another timely paper is
"On a Millionaire's Steam Yacht , " the
text and the fine illustrations giving a-
vivid idea of Jay Gould's "Atlanta , "
the floating palace in which he and his
guests enjoy "life on the ocean wave. "
Everyone cannot be a millionaire and
own a steam-yacht , but one can read
about it and imagine how it would seem.
Then read "Wings , Songs , and Stings ; "
and if you do not decide that the topic
is timely , and feel a neff interest in the
mosquito , we are egregiously mistaken.
The story matter is fully up to its usual
bigh standard , everyone who has "a
sweet tooth" will be interested in "A
Box of Candy , " ' the housekeeper will
be specially , pleased with "A Normandy
Kitchen , " everyone of "our girls" should
read "Girl Bachelors vs. Husband-Hun
ters , " and the children will be delighted
with the kindergarten amusements and
the story of "A Dutch Doll. " We have
not space to enumerate all the other at
tractions ; but there are nearly two hun
dred fine illustrations , and a lovely
water-color that everyone will appreciate
for its artistic effect and truthfulness to
nature. How all this is done for 20
cents a number , $2 a year-is a problem.

STILL SEARCHING FOR HER SISTER
From Monday's Stuio Journal.
Some weeks since i. girl named Rosa
Topping came to Lincoln and instituted
inquiries through the local press con
cerning the whereabouts of her sister ,
Mrs. Lida Mitchell. Rosa was seven
teen years of age. She gave the story
of her life to a Journal representative
as follows : Eight years ago , when she
.was only nine years of age , her mother
was taken ill and Rosa was sent to the
home for the friendless , where she re
mained for four weeks. 'At the expira
tion of this time she was taken to raise
by the Chambers family. She remain
ed with her new found friends until last
March , with the belief that they had
adopted her. In the meantime her
mother died and her sister , Lida , who
was a young lady , married Richard
Mitchell , a B. & M. engineer. During
the strike Mitchell left the employ of
the company and removed from the city.
Several weeks ago Rosa ascertained
that Chambers had not adopted her and
immediately left their home , and com
ing to Lincoln sought the protection of
former friends of her family. On the
28th day of July Rosa ascertained ,
after almost despairing of ever finding
her sister again , that she had left this
city with her husband and gone to live
on a farm near Red Cloud , and announc
ed her intention of leaving the next day
for that point. Since that time those
in this city familiar with the circum
stances of her diligent search while
here have supposed that Rosa had long
ere this realized her hopes of finding a
home with her sister. That such is
not the case , however , is attested by the
following letter from that sister receiv
ed at , this office , yesterday :
To the Editor of.the State Journal.
McCooic , NED. , Aug. 9. My Dear Sir.
Have heard to-day of an item published in
your paper two weeks ago of a fourteen-
year-old girl answering to the name of Rosa
Topping. 1 write you asking you in God's
name to say that anyone knowing of her
whereabouts will be rewarded for whatever
they do for her comfort , and tell her that her
sister , able to provide for her , is waiting and
ready to be a mother and sister. I have
written to the chief of police at Bennett , but
have had no reply. A reader of your paper
told me of the item , not knowing that 1 was
her own sister. 1 am sick and unable to
come to Lincoln or I would come. I am
anxiously waiting. Any steps taken for her
will be more than thankfully received. I re
main , LIDA B. MITCHELL ,
Culbertson , Neb.
It appears from the above that the
information gleaned1 from the engineer
to the effect that the Mitchell family
had removed to Red Cloud was erro
neous and the girl having gone to the
latter place has met with disappoint
ment. It is very probable that the pub
lication of this letter will soon bring
about the reunion.
LATER. The publication of Mrs.
Mitchell's letter in yesterday morning's
Journal brought out the whereabouts of
Rosa Topping. Miss Topping called
at The Journal office yesterday morn
ing and secured Mrs. Mitchell's address ,
to whom she sent a telegram announ
cing that she would go to Culbertson
upon receipt of enough money to pay
her fare. The young girl was overjoyed
at learning the whereabouts of her sister.
During the past few weeks she has been
making her home with a family named
Hitchcock , who reside at 722 W street.
Yesterday afternoon Miss Topping
secured employment and will join her
sister at Culbertson in the near future.
Dried Up Completely.
The Danbury News has succumbed
to the inevitable lack of support and
suspended publication. And , as fore
cast in our last issue , it is proposed to
move the material to Bartley to start
a paper in opposition to the Inter-Ocean ,
a newspaper that has endeavored to be
fair and impartial in the county-seat
matter , and has thereby brought down
on its devoted head the opposition of
the Indianola sympathizers of the 'Var
sity town. It remains to be seen wheth
er the people of Bartley will sit supine
ly by and allow a paper that has accom
plished so much for that town to be
throttled by the Indianola money that
is behind this man Carpenter.
No Reunion This Year.
The matter of holding a reunion at
McCook , this fall , has been carefully
canvassed and it has been deemed best ,
ander all the circumstances , to forego
[ hat pleasure until another year , when
it is hoped to be able to hold a "rouser"
; hat will make up for the one that the
drought and failure of crops have made
impracticable , this year. The papers
ihroughout the McCook reunion dis
trict are requested to announce the
ab eve decision of the committee.

Roberts stepped out on the running board for
the purpose of oiling a hot pin. Several min

discover that Roberts was not on the engine
and had probably fallen off. At the next sta
tion the fireman telegraphed to Louisville
that Engineer Roberts had fallen from the
engine. An extra engine was immediately
sent out and the unfortunate man was found
lying near the track unconscious. He was
picked up and taken to Ashland and placed
under the care of Dr. Mansfield , who found
that Roberts' spine was injured and that he
sustained internal injuries in addition to be
ing severely bruised about the body. It is a
miracle that he escaped being dashed to pieces
by his terrible fall. The physician is of the
opinion that he will recover. Engineer Rob
erts is one of the best men on the road , aud
is the last man who would be expected to
meet with such an unfortunate experience.
