a day.
A Flag at Goldfield Floats at Half
A remarkable incident, perhaps with
out a parallel in the history of crime is
the token of respect displayed by hia
late associates to Thomas N. Secrest.
As soon as the news of his death was
received at Goldfield a flag over the
mining works where he had been em
ployed was hung at half mast and
floated or drooped during three days.
Here was a man whose last deed,
suicide, was preceded by the most hor
rible crime within the range of human
imagination, wife murder. Nobody
stopped to inquire the cause. He was
remembered in the mining camp only
for his industrious and blameless life
there, for they said he was a man al
most without a fault, and they pro
ceeded to do him such honor as is
usually done only to those who have
rendered great public service or have
earned popular veneration. It is all
the more wonderful that the men at
Goldfield are men of good standing and
intelligence and that the camp is said
to be far superior to the average mining
camp in point of order and morality.
If any thing like this ever occurred be
fore no record has been made of it.
The only possible explanation of this
phenomenon, for things that seldom
happen and when they do happen are
difficult of explanation are phenomena,
is that when Secrest left Goldfield he
was a loved and honored man and on
the way to Phoenix became a demon by
a process as mysterious as that which
changed the good Dr. Jekyll to the
devilish Mr. Hyde.
The men of Goldfield never knew the
demon. Their tribute was paid to him
whom they had known, the respected
and honorable Mr. Secrest.
A California Woman's Supposed Re
lationship to Mrs. Secrest.
Justice Kincaid yesterday received a
letter from a man named J). R. Craft,
an employe of the Southern Pacific at
Sanger, Cal., containing an inquiry
concerning the Secreste. He has reason
to believe, he says, that the murdered
woman was a sister of his wife. He is
particularly anxiouB to learn if she was
in her right mind immediately before
death and if she made any statement.
If io, he inquires the character of it.
He also wants to know the full Dame
of Secrest and his wife and what has
become of their son, Barry. The jus
tice is requested to send ths finding of
the coroner's jury and a copy of a
newspaper containing a complete ac
count of the tragedy. There were no
explanations in the letter which might
serve to establish tha relationship that
the writer speaks of. Both the Secrest

light on the matter, as the elder of

left Ohio and the family had heard lit

atives since.
A Permanent Organization Effected

The president, vice-president and

that meeting is general practice and the
beginning of the selection of an eleven.
All ioot ball players and enthusiast! are
earnestly requested to be present.
There is every indication that the in

intense this year than last. Some of
the players of last season are out of the
city now but their places will readily
be taken by new men.
FourteenJChinamen and Six Colored
Men Arrested in Chicago.
Chicago, Sept. 28. Continuing the
series of recent raids on Chicago gamb
lers, the Harrison street police raided a
poker game at 311 Clark Btreet, early
this morning. Fourteen Chinamen
and six colored men were arrested.
Several poker tables and a quantity of
chips . were confiscated. When the
officers entered the room the players
charged them in an effort to escape, hut
without avail. John San was booked
as proprietor.
A Bot
Tliat Is Worth Its Cost Every
Time It Is Used.
In moving1 swine some method be
sides leading or driving is often neces
sary. For hauling a single animal
make a strong box 4x2xl feet
with an opening at one end. Set the
box in the pen doorway and with a
little corn entice the hog into it. Let
the door in the rear end down and se
cure it with a peg, as shown in the
cut. Two men can then easily load a
200-pound shote into a wagon. The
box must be made strong by cleating
the inside corners. Such a box is
worth its cost every time it is used.

Origin of a Bad Habit.
A horse that never gained his liberty
by breaking his halter never became a
halter puller, says a practical writer.
Poor halters or bridles have always
been the cause of horses acquiring the
habit of breaking loose. It is, there
fore, of the utmost importance that
whatever a colt is tied with it is be
yond his power to break. If the first
few attempts to free itself are in vain
there is very little danger of the colt
trying the experiment soon again.
When horses have once become accus
tomed to breaking loose the best way
to break them is to fasten them secure
ly with strong straps or ropes and
then give them an opportunity to pull
away until they get tired of the sport.
A few lessons of this kind wjl some
times break them of the habit. As the
habit is one of the worst that a horse
can contract, every precaution should
be taken to prevent it, or, when once
contracted, it should be broken up as
speedily as possible.
Why Stock-Growing Pays.
The English say they raise stock to
buy more land to raise more grain to
feed more stock, etc. No grass, no
cattle; no cattle, no manure; no
manure, no grass. This is a rotation
which will pay well. Live stock is
our chief reliance in mantaining the
fertility of the soil. While the raising
of stock will enrich our soil and re
new its productiveness, it will market
the farm products better than to ship
the feed away. While grain-growing
is taking from the soil and at the
same time growing more unprofitable
our hope is in stock breeding. Breed

A Little Leather-Covered Book That Gives
Uis Receipts.
One of our correspondents has been
so lucky as to fall in with a little
leather-covered book, like those of
bank depositors, which contains Dan
iel Webster's autograph record of his
legal receipts. This chronicle, says
the ew York Evening Post, fills twenty-eight
pages and extends a little
more than from 1833 to 1836, inclusive.
The first entry, dated September in
the former year, is of $50, and the
second is of 20, for retainers on the
Xew Hampshire circuit. The first fee
of 1,000 was paid in May, 1834, by a
Mrs. .badger, services regarding Cil
ley's will commanded 800. The total
amount for the first year was footed up
as $13,140, with the remark: "Septem
ber 22, 1S34, thus done and concluded.'
A similar summing up appears at the
close of each other year. The second
total is $15,183.74; the third is $21,793.
The first entry of $2,000 was in 1835,
March 7; the first of $3,000 December 7
in the same year. The last payment
was in respect to Florida land. The
largest single honorarium was $7,500.
In February of the fourth year $5,000 is
set down as bestowed in a case of Trin
ity church (New York). In turning over
this record leading metropolitan and
even provincial lawyers are astonished
that Webster, already twenty years in
Boston, so undervalued his services.
He learned better at last. When Rob
ert C. Winthrop looked up the earliest
date he said: "That's just the time I
was ending my studies in Webster's
office," and the chirograph led him to
add that Webster never wrote a firm
hand. Nobody has surveyed the relic
with more interest than Dr. O. W.
Holmes. Among other things he said
"Had the influx been ten-fold, Web
ster's purse would have remained
empty still. Had its capacity received
like the sea, whatever entered there
would have runoff like water from the
back of a duck."

To those Who Suffer From Kidney Troublles.
I have been suffering from kidney
troubles for one year and no doctor has
done me any good. Their reason, they
say, is because when the kidneys are
diseased they waste away and are
incurable. I got acquainted with
Mr. B. Silva A. and he gave me gome
of his kidney remedy and have
since been radically cured, and
I recommend him to all those that
are suffering from this disease in re
