During the mining excitement in Keya Paha county the people of bpnugview ore determined not to be in the rear.

Tangle Hair, a prominent Cheyenne chief, accompanied by HolIer-in-a-Hole-in-the-Air and others, were at Fort Robin son from Pine Ridge agency Monday, saying that they were starving and de manding more rations, which were giypn them.y Two boys named Brown and McMuIlen .while herding cattle near Shelton ate what they supposed were artichokes but which proved to be something of a pois onous nature, resulting in the death of Brown. McMuIlen received medical as sistance and recovered. The sheep at tho corral are being shear ed and the clip represent a nice sum. of money for the owners, says the Minden Gazette. Say there are 3,000 sheep aver aging five pounds of wool at twenty cents a pound. The profit from wool alone amounts to at least $3,000. The Fairbury Gazette tells this: Two of William Tonnemaker's boys, who live east of town a few miles, went out gun ning last Saturday and killed twenty one rattle snakes, some of them having from twelve to eighteen rattles each. This is a snake story, but true, neverthe less.

Ehcood Record. The Kearney Echo is no more, the sheriff assisting in the obsequies. This is the seventh newspaper that lays at rest in Kearney's newspaper graveyard, and all within nine years says the New Era. It is beginning to dawn ou this commun ity that it requires something more than immaculato cheek and an ability to con- t iraci uems 10 successfully conduct a orrhage. The deceased was a Hative of newspaper busiuess in that city oneueu uuu uuu ui me uiutssi, seiners in the countv. He leaves a wife and four children. George F. Kimmel, formerly of Albion, has sued the town of Austin, Minn., for $10,000 for false imprisonment. Kimmel was lately convicted and sentenced to nve days imprisonment lor violating a city ordinance relating to peddling with out a license, but was released by Judge Neleon of the United States District Court. It is claimed that more forest trees are shipped by Jefferson county nurseries than from any other county in the union. Bosley & Krider have shipped 3,000,000 trees this spring. Carpenter & Gage about 28,000,000, Hurlbert & Jackson, S. 31. Barnes, George Galbraith and a num ber of others have also done an immense business. Herman Ihde, who is sinking a hy draulic well for James Hunnel, northeast of this place, reports that he struck fifty five feet of rock about 110 feet from the surface. He has put down a number of wells in the country north of town, but this is the first instance where rock of any importance has been encountered, though small laj'ers aro frequently found. Gothenburg Independent. Red Cloud has been called to mourn the death of one of her oldest residents, having resided in Red Cloud for twenty years and supposed to be one hundred years of age, says tho Superior Journal. It was a parrot owned by one Dr. Tulley. This parrot was years ago owned by Span iards and whea brought to the above city conversed in Spanish altogether, Ameri canized and at the time of its death was quite a fluent talker of the English lang uage and was one of the most valuable birds of that kind in America. Mrs. Lydia E. Smith and children, of Blue Springs, were in the city Thurs day night. They were on their way home from Custer county, where she had purchased a farm. Two years ago she sued the saloon keepers of that town for the loss of her husband through drink. She secured $2,000 damages. They car ried it to the supreme court and tried to wear her out. The courts all decided in her favor. She now invests the money in land for tho benefit of her boy, whom she says shall not live in towns under the in fluence of saloons. Kearney Hub. The troops at Fort Robinson are under orders to be ready to take the field at a moment's notice to intercept the Chey enne Indians, who meditate leaving the Pine Ridge agency without permission. It is feared the old Indians cannot re strain the young bucks from committing depredations enroute. Chief Tangled Hair and forty-four Indians were at the Fort and reported themselves in a starv ing condition. The commanding officer has ordered rations for them and they wm do sent back to the agency. It is parties of this kind that it is feared will cause trouble. Another feature in the liquor siezure case at Wayne has bobbed up aud this time consternation has been carried to the official ranks. It seems that when the officials of that county destroyed the liquors taken from Kass, Perrine and Burson at that town recently, they neg lected to destroy the stamps as required by law, and the United States marshal has been called to the scene to investigate the matter. From military authority it is loarned that Forts Niobrara -and Robinson will each likely get $50,000 appropriations from tho present congress for additional buildings in shape of officers' quarters, barrocks, a chapel aud school room, says the Valentine Republican. This will make these posts two of the most corapleto in the west, and will give them a degree of prominence which insures their being garrisoned many years. The case iu the federal court entitled Kit Carter Cattle Company vs. The Har lem Cattle Company, is decided. The decision read by Judge Dundy is in fayor of the plaintiffs, and gives a decree of $92,000 and costs. Tho security in which the chattel mortgages are based consists of herds of cattle, besides a trust deed for 6,000 acres of land included in various cattle ranches. This is final so far as the Nebraska federal court is concerned. Tho cross bills and various side issues were presented with all the force their re spective advocates could command. Kimball citizens are rejoicing. They have won a great victory, and one that will aid the growth of the town and the settlement of the country and make this a place of note. The proposition to bond the precinct for $24,500 to aid the con struction of a water power and lake at Kimball was carried by a vote of 85 for to 11 against. Work will bo commenced at once. It is estimated that the cost of the lake and water power plant will bo nearly $60,000. The work will be done under the direction of the Kimball county water power and supply company, a company organized for that purpose. The Forepaugh circus will go on this year under the old name, and one of the features of it will be a band of Sioux In dians, which were only secured after long diplomatic correspondence with two gov erments. They were secured in Canada by C. A. Davis and Major Yates. Davis is the one who secured the white elephant from oiam for Barnum, and when he sets out to get a feature for a big show he ets there." In speaking of the matter Davis said: "The application for permission to take a band of Sioux from their reservation in the United States was first preferred to General Morgan, Com missioner of Indian Affairs. He took the ground that it would be injurious to the morals and welfare of the Indians to travel with a circus, and cited the effect of travel on some, of the Indians who went with Buffalo Bill in defense of his position. He prevailed on the president to refuse the request We thought the "gei Mr. effect would bo different, because if the Indians could travel about and see the countless numbers of the white people they would concludej as old Red Cloud did in 1868, when he came to Washington, that it was no use (o tight with a people who aro as numerous as blades of grass. Red Cloud never left his reservation after hb found out the extent of the white people. But General Morgan and the president remained firm, and we went over to Canada, and that required diplo matic correspondence by the yard with both governments, but we got the In dians. Thoy insisted on written contracts, with their own signatures attached, which were made through interpreters, before they would come a step." MISCELLAUSNEWS. Capt. Couch, the well known Oklahoma boomer, is dead. Ho died from tne el- fects of a wound inflicted bv S. C. Adams of April 4th. The Chicago carpenters to the number of 9,000 or over, are still out on a strike for an eight hour day. There combined wages amouut to $20,000 a day. Nebraska's delegation in Washington have agreed upon Hon. Robert Furnas of Brownville, Nebraska, as one of the com missioners of the Chicago Worlds Fair No better selection could have been made. Senator Paddock has procured a state ment from tho interior and treasury de partments of the amounts due Nebraska on account of the sale of public lands The most important item is that which shows there is due Nebraska $224,828, being five per cent of the sales of lands previously unaccounted for. The supreme court of the United States has passed upon the habeus corpus case of Marshal Nagle who killed Judge lerry at Lathrop, California last year. The decision of the district court which held that Nagle simply didrhis duty in protecting the life of J ustice Field was affirmed, and Nagle exonorated. There is a bill before the house of represetatives providing for the erection of postoffice buildings in all towns where tue postal receipts amount to 3,UuU per annum. While the bill would do away with a good portion of the surplus iu the treasury, there is reason to believe the results would be beneficial to the general puolic. It would do away with the change in the location of the postoffice every time a new postmaster is appointed, at least. The greatest corporations in the world is the association of stockholders of the world's fair. About five hundred thousand shares of stock is represented by all classes of citizens, from the day laborer to the wealthiest bond holder. At a meet ing of the stockholders a few days ago forty-five representative men were select ed as incorporators. The entire nation will unite in one grand and harmonious effort to make this the most stupendous fair ever held in the world, even outstrip ping the Oriental splendor ot the Paris exposition. Uncle Sam to Buy at Home. There will be no British blankets bought for the war department or build ing material imported for new govern ment quarters under tne Mclvmley tariff bill. The present tariff act places on the free list "articles imported for the US6 of tho United States provided the price of the same did not include the duty." This is omitted from the McKinley bill, and tho effect will be to discourage govern ment contracts with foreign contractors who, under tho present law, have an ad vantage over both the American producer and tho honest importer. "The govern ment," says Major McKinley in his report, ugbt not to buy abroad what it can buy at home." This is very sound doc trine for people as well as government. Moreover, the change referred to stops a peculiarly meau sort of fraud. Foreign contractors who are supplying the govern ment under tue present law take advan tage of their freedom from duty to bring in au extra supply of the goods contracted for to sell in tne market in competition with the products of American labor. The McKinley bill is good in what it does not as well as what it does contain, 2T. Y. Press. Highest of all in Livening Power. U. S. Gov't Report, Aug. 17, 1889.
