We have them with either drop tank or the pneumatic, and in the language of the poet, "no pump to get out of or der or gas forced through the room," hut can prove that less gas escapes from it than any stove made and can show it has many points of supe riority over all others and prove to you that the Jewel is Tli.e : Best : Sto-sre : '3Ea,d.e.

Judge Heist and Mr. Powell were intro duced to General Sheridan.- by Congress man Dorsey, and they explained the bus iness they had and the reasons -iwiyFort Sidney should be maintained and enlarg ed. General Sheridan explained his idea concerning military posts which was that they should be built near large cities, where they will be most needed in future, aad the troops gradually concentrated. Bft at the same time General Sheridan does not intend to abandon Ft. Sidney for sevaraV years yet and the post will be kept in proper . repair, Congressman Dorsey, Senators Mandertocand Paddock, and in fact the ?whdle Nebraska delegation are working vigorously for Fort Sidney.

Some' time since, an intimacy sprang up between Mrs. Halley and a worthless fellow named"Wm. Murray, who was engaged ,at work in the neighborhood. Halley ap peared to be blind to this growing intim acy, though the neighbors seem to think it strabge that he should have been so blind.' Frequently the guilty parties would go to a country dance tegether leaving Halley at home with the children and it was noticeble that, at these parties, the conduct of Mrs. H. and her paramour was anything other than commendable. Last Saturday night, the matter culmin ated in the guilty pair leaving' Mrs. Hal ley's home while Mr. H. was in bed with the youngest child. A short time after the escapade, the child awakened Halley with its cries, when he called for his wife. No answer came. Searching the house, the husband found himself abandoned. He dressed, and securing a neighbor to stay with the children, went in search of the run-a-ways. About three o'clock Sunday morning, he arrived at Stockville very much excited and apparently unable to outline a definite course to pursue. He says he has no desire for the return of his unfaithful spouse but would like the thirty-five dollars of his money that she carnal off: Later it has been found that the runa ways arrived at Moorefield. about six o'clock in the morning, went to the hotel and immediately retired. They arose in the afternoon in time for the train east. They purchased a ticket for Lincoln. Stockpile Faber. Inhe abs ence of B.

About the first of May he will go to the Indian Territory where John Clay, jr., will have 1,500 cows operated upon. Later in the summer Heck Reel, of Green River, Wyoming, will have fifteen hun dred calves and yearlings for the doctor's knife, and Ernest, also of Green River, will have 500 mixed. Cap. Tory, of Big Horn basin, also has 1,500 cows, yearlings and calves to be spayed. This general spaying of she cattle in order to fit them for the butcher's block indicates a deter mination on the part of the range cattle men to quit the business as rapidly as possible .Sidney TeUgraph.

Grant Enter prise. .C. W. Meeker, of Imperial was in the city last week, on his way to Lincoln, to get a writ of mandamus from the supreme court, compelling the commissioners of Chase county to call an election for the relocation of the county seat in that coun ty.

But the friends of Miss Fellow say that she is a sensitive little thing, full of char ity and sentiment and perfectly .helpless in a practical way, and that it is a great disaster for her to be tied for life to an Indian. " Still these helpless little women are sometimec no small potatoes in a do mestic debate. It is still very possible that Mr. Chasca will find when the stern exigencies of wigwam economy are upon him and he gets ready to put in a crop or desires a dead buffalo hauled from the distant prairie to his happy home that a little white school ma'm weighing only a hundred pounds on the agency scales really weighs a couple of tons when the family ballot is polled.

The live stock commissioners of Ne braska have investigated hundreds of cases of hog cholera, 'and state that if farmers and swine breeders should apply such rules as are herein suggested they would be,willing to reduce their losses to to a minimum and cope successfully with the disease. If there should be an out break, seperate all healthy from the diseased hogs as soon as possible. The healthy hogs should be removed to a new and uninfected pasture or pen, and care fully watched by an attendent Should any that have been thought to be well .be come weak, or appear to be sick, ailing or off their feed, take them out and kill them. All diseased hogs should be killed and cremated as soon as possible. If the hogs be healthy it is advisable never to allow new hogs to intermingle with them in the herd until after having them sub jected to a strict quarantine of not less than seven weeks. Neither is it advisa ble to allow any one to go into the hog pens after returning from an infected place without first changing his boots. There should be but one attendant to look after sick animals, who during such ser vice should not be allowed to leave the place. Hogs should never be watered at a stream if it should run from where the disease is known to exist. Dogs or other animals belonging to infected farms should not be allowed to roam at will where hogs are kept, as they may carry the infection with them. If these rules are carefully observed there need be little to fear of hog cholera causing any serious loss or spreading to any alarming extent. Exchange.

Marcey Warner who was hanged the other day at Jefferscnville, Ind., for murder made the following gallows speech : "If any of you ever take a class of whisky, before you put it to vour lins think of Marcey Warner, and look into the bottom of the glass and see if you can't see a rope there."
