STATE NE-WS The thirteen year old son of Alonzo Dennis, a farmer living about twelve miles southeast of Hartington. was dragged to death by a horse while herd ing cattle, The Nebraska City council rejected the proposition of the C. B. & Q. railroad lor planking their bridge, making a wagon track in connection with its rail road bridges Some trouble was experienced in tak ing the census of the Omaha Indians in Thurston county. They emphatically objected to being counted and were very reticent about answering questions. A farmer named Maurley living in northwest Nuckolls county, awoke the other night to find that someone had left a girl baby on a table outside his door. He turned the waif over to'the county authorities. At Nebraska City a petition is being circulated to have base ball playing abated as a desecration of the Sabbath. The mayor says if ball playing is stopped all buggy riding and delivering of milk and street car running will be stopped. A small military muddle has resulted over the removal of the military company from Sheltbn to Kearney. Tne Shelton men refused to give' up the equipments claiming they owned individually part of the property and it could nut be trans ferred. Hartington was the scene of a social sensation recently. By a well laid trap a travelling man named Hammer dis covered his wife entertaining a certain knight of the grip in a conjugal way in his once happy home . The nest day the unworthy wife and mother left for parts unknown. The Omaha Indians are making exten sive preparations for an immense "blow out" on the 4th of July, says the Pender Republican. Twenty-five beeves -and a number of hogs is the size of the bill of fare. Racing, dancing and feasting is to be the order of the day. Troop P, Ninth cavalry, under com mand of. Captain Hughes, passed through the city yesterday en 'route to the seat of war, the Beaver creek barracks, says the Sidney Journal. They are under orders from the secretary of war n remain in camp at that point until the settlers feel confident there is no danger which in fact there never has been. Mrs. W- W: lones of Tobfoe is the only lady undertaker in the state. She was in attendance at the undertakers annual meeting at Grand Island this week, and when a corpse was provided for the oc casion, she dextrously stepped to the front and took up the artery of the arm, and showed as much skill in the work as the most expert male undertaker in the convention. A jump from a population of 13,000 to 54,000 in ten years is a pretty good one. Lincoln has made the stride. In her cor cesponding ten 3'ears of growth Omaha went up from 16,000 to 32,000 and was complimented. That was a great growth, too, but Lincoln has beaten it. In the last five years Lincoln has increased 170 per cent and Omaha a little over 100 per cent.' A little indian girl at the agency named Stella, daughter of "Made Above," acci dentally shot herself and Dr. Wells of Valentine successfully dressed the wound. "Made Above" showed his gratitude by appearing at Valentine the other day with a fine two year old pony, but finding the doctor away he camped out until, his return, when he presented him with the animal. The most intimate friendship now exists between the Indian and his physician. Judge Valentine finds the quota of Nebraska in the senate payroll more than full, and is persuaded that he will have no vacancy for several j'ear3. The seu ate is accustomed to keep its employes in office right along, as it is a conservative body averse to new facns, and constant rotation, and so the large number of as pirants to places from this state that were aroused to action by the election of the judge to the responsible position of ser-geant-at-arms, will have to bide their time, and it will be a long time, before opportunity offers for getting them in. State Journal. MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. - A locomotive to be operated solely by electricity is being constructed at Rome, N. Y. Mrs. Grover Cleveland's inheritance from the real estate of her grandfather at Omaha is said to be one-sixteenth of $800,000. Sir Morell Mackenzie, who gained his chief notoriety as the physician of Em peror Frederick, is coming to America to lecture. The site of Andersonville prison is now a part of a large farm belonging to a negro. The plantation of Jefferson Davis also became the property of one of his former slaves. The Pope has given his blessing to the scheme for founding a Trappist monas tery in the Holy Land. His Holiness has been for a time in great doubt as to the advisibility of this proceeding. The heirs of Myra Clark Gaines have obtained another $500,000 verdict against the city of New Orleans, but the Louis iana State lottery holds a first mortgage, and the Gaines heirs are not likely In this generation to see their money. California first yielded the Nation its wealth of gold, and how it is giving us its golden frnit equally acceptable. The great region west of the Mississippi River, reaching to the Pacific, is only at the beginning of ot its grand career. It is cold yet up in the Maine woods. Two Connecticut sportsmen who have returned report snow drifts two or three feet deep in sheltered places in the forests, and the temperature so cold that fishing in the lakes has been backward. Mr. Luys says that seeing through a closed door is possible to, a hypnotized person. The optic -nrerve acquires such power that a man has been known to read a paper with his eyes bandaged, and to distinguish the color of glass balls through a wooden screen. Tammany Hall is credited with a wil lingness to appropriate $50,000 to com. plete and perfect the census of New York. The old organization evidently wants a population big enough to warrant the old-time inflated Democratic major ities of the days of Tilden and Tweed. The Atchison Globe .hints at the cause of the warfare that is being made on Sen ator Ingalls in this way : "The fact that Mr. Ingalls has not given every Kansas man pancakes for breakfast is attracting considerable attention. In the same con nection the matter, of maple syrup might be mentioned." A new mill for the Inanufacture of paper from moss has been recently estab lished in Swedeu. Paper of different thickness and pasteboard made of it have already been shown, the latter even in sheets three-quarters of an inch thick. It is as hard as wood, and can easily be painted and polished. The official count in Oregon gives Herman, Republican candidate for Con gress, 10,047 majority. This is the first expression of popular sentiment on the Republican policy as far as developed under the present administration. The Democrats will be permitted to get what what satisfaction they can out of it. Ex-President Cleveland is said to desire the removal of Calvin S. Brice from the chairmanship of the Democratic National committee. He doubtless would prefer to see his friend Gorman of Maryland in the place. Mr. Brice's conduct of the campaign of two yearsago was not a masterpiece of political generalship . The temperance people of Lawrence and other Kansas cities are making life a continuing delight to the original package men. They are persistently prosecuting them. If they fail to hold them by one kind of an action, they try another. When the.' have exhausted all existing processes, they will doubtless invent some new ones. A new artificial light is announced as just invented by a Pittsburg, Pa., man, which, while equaling the electric light in its lustre, is, "perfectly free from those features so destructive to both life and property that for years characterized the use of gas, electricity and kerosino oil," and can be furnished so cheaply as to be available to all classes. Some one showed General Sherman a picture representing him upon a fine fiery horse looking on at the burning of Atlanta, fie says for a fact-ha was seat ed on au army mule on that momentous occasion, and he declares that for easy riding an army mule beats the best horse he ever bestrode. He always rode a mule when he could get one. The anti-slavery conference at Brus sels, is only waiting to close its labors, for the consent of the United States to the imposition of import duties by the Congo Free State. If this is not given the conference will have labored in vain, and Congo will be unable to procure funds with which to enforce the anti slavery measure decided on by the Powers. The.order recently issued by the di rectors of a prominent Irish bank that their clerks will not marry until they haye reached the dignity of a position paying $750 a ye'ar is considered the crowning outrage of the century. It virtually is an embargo on matrimony until the fortieth year, or thereabouts, and is causing a bigger commotion in Dublin than an old fashioned eviction. The world's fair has, after a long and somewhat noisy debate, been located on the Chicago Lake Front. Now the loca tion is settled everybody is free to say that it was absolutely idiotic to think of any other place . And it was. But it is often the nature of the real estate man to be idiotic in locating things if a penny or a million or two would result from an idiot's advice being taken. Ex. There is considerable talk of engineer ing a trade with Mexico whereby the United States will receive Lower Cali fornia in exchange for the southern part of Arizonia and New Mexico. While it is not at all likely that-Mexico is anxious for such a swap, it is a subject that can be discussed without danger to either party. There is no harm in sitting on the fence and talking trade with our neighbor in a friendly way. The force of suggestion to an imitative man was illustrated in Birmingham, Ala., the other day. A paper hanger shot his mistress in the night and then shot him self. A carpenter living in the vicinity was one of the early visitors to the scene of the tragedy, and went forthwith to his own lodgings, shot his mistress and then himself. He remarked when he beheld the scene of blood at his neighbor's quar ters', "This is a good way to settle lover's quarrels." A careful estimate based on the records now made makes the population of "Greater New York" just about 3.000,000. This includes New York proper with its 1,627,227 people, Brooklin with 930,671 and all the adjacent territory that is under the jurisdiction of the state of iSew York. The growth during the decade has been enormous and promises to -continue. In case annexation wins the supremecy of Chicago will be postponed for several years. The champion college prize winner of this season is reported to be Warren R. Schenck of Rutgers . His general stand ing in scholarship gave him the saluta tory oration and he won the prize for extemporaneous debate, the political philosophy prize, the moral philosophy prize, the 'foreign mission prize, the American literature prize, the original composition prize, the Christian mission prize and the natural science prize. It now remains to be seen what prizes he will win in the contests of business or professional life. It is surmised in Chicago that the offer of the owners of the Union stockyards to sell to the Englishmen is caused by the knowledge that the business must stead ily decline in the future on account of the building of new western plants and the growing tendeucy to scatter the packing houses around iu the hog raising districts. The property pays at present from 6 to 15 per cent of the capital in vested. It is plain that the owners would not care to dispose of such property if permanent dividends of this kiud were assured. It is therefore admitted even by the Chicago papers that it is probable that Armour and other packers intend to transfer the base of their opeiatious to a more western point. The Armours deny that they will come to Omaha, and the inference is that they will enlarge their plant nt Kansas City and perhaps estab lish important packing centers at Salt Lake and San Francisco. One of the assistants of the British museum tells me that visitors to that in stitution frequently have a hard time to get "acclimated" to the place. An hour spent in the rooms invariably gives the visitor (for the first time) a headache. Sometimes it is only after repeated visits that one is able to indulge his researches without carrying a headache away with him. Women seem to be particularly sensitive to this curious malady, which is said to arise from the peculiar odor created by the storage of so many books. You can get some idea of what this odor Is by going to your bookcase, that has been closed for twenty-four hours, and opening one of the doors. Immediately your olfactories will be greeted by the mustiest fragrauce imaginable. Biblio maniacs profess to love this odor, and many declare that they can not value a book unless it has about it that unmis takable and ineradicible smell which in fects a volume when once it has crossed the sea iu the hold of a vessel. London Letter. The New York Herald is more foreign than American. About every week it repeats: "The expenditures for pensions for the year ending on the 30th of this month will be, as now officially stated, $109,357,534. Last year we paid $87, 624,779.11. The cost of the German army, it may be interesting to note, is for this year estimated at $91,726,293." Well, what of it? What has the German army done "this year" to. be worth $91,726,2932 What did the Union soldiers from 1861 to 1965 accomplish? Go to, old croaker. Inter-Ocean. His Wife Suffered from Erysipelas. Mr. John O. Rogers, of Dana, Illinois, writes as follows under the date of March 27,1890: "My wife was for years an in valid from a blood trouble, and suffered terrible at times from Erysipelas. She tried many remedies advertised as blood purifiers, but received no benefit. A few bottles of Swift's Specific (S. S. S.) cured her of Erysipelas and other blood troubles From the first her appetite increased, and her general health improved in every way. She considers S. S. S. the best blood purifier and tonic she ever saw, and is willing for any one suffering as she was to be referred to her. His Blood. Poisoned by Cow Itch. About five years ago my blood was poisoned with cow itch, and every spring since then I have been troubled with the poison breaking out in largo sores all over my body. I tried various remedies without receiving any benefits. Three bottles of Swift's Specific (S.S.S.) ef fected a complete and permanent cure, when all other blood remedies had failed. R. L.

Highest of all in Leavening Power. U. S. Gov't Report, Aug. 17, 1889. Baking Powder ABSOWTElY PURE A traveling mountain is found at the cascades of tho Columbia. It is a triple peaked mass of dark brown basalt, six or eight miles in length where it fronts the river, and rises to a height of almost two thousand feet above the water. That it is in motion is the last thought which would be likely to suggest itself to any one passing it; yet it is a well established fact that this entire mountain is moving slowly but steadily down the river, as if it had a deliberate purpose some time in the future to dam the Columbia and form a great lake from the cascades to the dalles. The Indian traditions indicate immense movements of the mountains hereabouts, long before white men came to Oregon, and the early settlers, immi grants, many of them from New England, gave the above described mountainous ridge the name of "traveling mountain," or "sliding mountain." In its forward and downward movement the forests along the base of the ridge have become submerged in the river. Largo tree stubs can be seen standing deep In the water on this shore. The railway engineers and trackmen find that the line of the railroad which skirts the foot of the mountain is being continually forced out of place. At certain points the road-bed and rails have been pushed eight or ten feet out of lino in the course of a few years. State Journal.
