HICfiKpVIVED AND SE2 Er?sd This is an age of booms; and the ex humation the other day at Peidmont, North Carolina, of the remains of Peter Stuart Ney, a French school master, who died there about seventy years ago, in the hope of establishing the fact that the handful of dust was all that remain ed of the world-famed Marshal Ney, Napolean's honored and trusted soldier, r is one of the most novel and original attempts at boom-making the country has ever known, and puts to blush the best efforts of a Kansas real estate agent with his thrilling descriptions of corner lots and "the latest and best city addition. " With the life of Marshal Ney, readers of history are well acquainted; but comparatively few know any thing of the man to whose ashes the attention of the reading public has been drawn by the absurd story of a newspaper correspondent' who, in a special dis patch of three columns from, Raleigh, rehashes a bit of latter-day history which was never thought to contain a grain of truth. The story in substance is that, in 1816. there appeared in Davie county, North Carolina, a French man, who gave his name as Peter S. Ney. He opened a school, which he continued for several years with success, being loved and admired by his pupils. A story was started to the effect that the retired pedagogue was none other than the famous Marshall Ney of France, and, as years passed, the belief grew upon the people and in many ways they tried to lead the school-master to talk of his past life, a topic which .Ney studiously avoided except when in the presence of two intimate friends, Cap tain Houston and his daughter, Mrs. Dalton, to whom it is said Ney un bosomed himself, first pledging his friends to secrecy. As to physique, personal apperance, age, character of wounds there is said to have been a strik ing similarity between the two men. Ney on one occassion displayed wonderful dexterity in fencing with a short sword, and excelled in all athletic sports. Several times when under the influ ence of liquor he dropped his usual re serve. The school-master is represent ed as having spoken freely of himself once when he was so drunk that he could not stand alone, at which time he alluded to the part he took in the battle of Waterloo, and how he escaped death when he was officially reported to have been shot. We quote from the dis patch: "The firing party was composed of Ney(s old troops, and they .had an op portunity to avqjd killing him. There were few witnesses to the scene. P. S. Ney once told Mrs. Dalton that the matter was preconcerted by himself and the officer of the squad; and, as the latter passed the squad he bade the men 'aim high,' whereas it had al ways been his command to :aim low.' Ney fell; his bodp was coffined hastily, then taken out of the box, disguised, and taken by trusted friends to Bor deaux, whence he shipped to America in a trading vessel. While Ney was seated by a fire in a hotel in Dar lington, S. Cr. a stranger came in and spoke of an extensive tour that he had just made saying he had visited Mar seal Ney's grave while in France. Peter S. Ney roused sufficently to say; 'But Ney was not there his bones cannot be found in the soil of France.' Once, when drunk, Ney said he was the Duke of Elchingcn, or left that impression as he was being carried cross wise on a horse to Cap't Houston's house. " The story is altogether improbable for many reasons, the first of which is, the death of Micheal Ney, Marshal of France, Duke of Elchingen, is as well authenticated as any other matter of history. Had it been possible for Ney to have escaped, by practicing duplicity, the death which he had so calmy prepared himself to meet, it is not probable that he would have taken up his abode in an obscure North Car olina town and lived there for so many years away from his beloved family, when it would have been an easy mat ter for the them to have joined him. Again, imagine if you can, the stern, taciturn warrior of inflexible purpose as being a common bar-room loafer, and, while under the influence of drink, relating his life history to motely crowd of gasping listeners. In the writers opinion the marshal, had he been in hiding, would not have revealed his identity at any time, and, being a sensative as well as a sensible man, least of all when drunk, it being a characteristic of human nature to ridicule any extravagant statements a man may make while in such a condition: and it is highly probable that the tipsy school-teacher's boasts were so recieved. The school master's body was disin erred to see if any evidence of terphin ing in the skull could be discovered, it having been ascertained that Marshal Ney underwent that operation in Paris. The skull was so far destroyed that it was impossible to make an examination. Now that there is no further hope of solving the mystery. Peter Stuart Ney's ashes should be allowed to rest in peace, and some other scheme devised for booming that particular part of the country. Supt. Thompson. The authorities of Baltimore impose a fine of from $o to $25 on persons who are caught kissing and hugging in the public parks. This is evidently' a blow aimed at the rights and privileges of the nurse girl, and the jawsmiths should wake up and turn loose their blow-guns upon this heartless oppression of the weak by the strong. The bad effects of cigarette smoking were most conclusively shown a few days ago inew York City, where twelve boys entered a competative examination. Four had heart trouble and malformation and'three defective eyesight. Cigarette smoking is one of the greatest evils of the country and is producing a race of phys- ical weaklings. SATED BY A SONG- Cover my defenceless head With the shadow or thy wing A party of Northern tourists formed part of a large company gathered on the deck of an excursion steamer that was moving slowly down the historic Potomac one beautiful evening in the summer of 1881. A gentleman who has since gained a National reputation as on evangelist of song had been de lighting the party with his happy ren dering of many familiar hymns, the last being the sweet petition so dear to every Christian heart, "Jesus lover of my soul." The singer gave the first two verses with much foeling, and a peculiar em phasis upon the concluding lines that thrilled every heart. A hush had fal len upon the listeners that was not broken for some seconds after the mu sical notes had died away. Then a gentleman made his way from the out skirts of the croQ to the singer and accosted him with ,Beg j-our pardon, stranger, but were you actively engaged in the late war." "Yes, sir," the man of song courte ously answered, "I fought under Gen eral Grant." "Well" the first speaker continued, with something like a sigh, "I did my fighting on the other side, and think, indeed am quite sure, I was very near yon one very bright night eighteen years ago tins very month. It was much such a night as this. If I am not mistaken you were on guard duty. We of the South had sharp business on baud, and you were one of the enemy. I crept near your post of duty, my mur derous weapon in my hand; the shadow hid me. As you paced back and forth 3'ou wero humming the tune of the hymn yon have just sung. 1 raised my gun and aimed at your heart and I had been selected by our commander for the work because I was a sure shot. Then out upon the night air rung the words, Cocr iny defenceless he.id With the shadow of Thy iug. ''Your prayer was answered. I couldn't fire after that. And there was no attack made on your camp that night. I felt sure when I heard you this evening that 3011 were the man whose life I was spared from taking." 1 be singer grasped the hand of the Southerner and said with much emotion, ' 'I remember the night very well and distinctly the feeling of depression and loneless with which I went forth to do my duty. I knew my post was one of great danger, and I was more dejected than I remember to have been at any other timo during the service. I paced my lonely beat, thinking of home and all that life holds dear. Then the thought of God's care for all that he has created came to me witn peculiar force. If He so cared for the sparrow, how much more for man created In his own image; and I sang the prayer of my heart and ceased to feel alone. How the prayer was answered I never knew untill this evening. My Heavenly Father thought best to keep the knowl edge from me for eighteen years. How much of Ilis goodness to us we shall be ignorant untill revealed by the light of eternity! 'Jesus, lover of my soul,' has been a favorate hymn; now it will be inexpressibly dear.' ' The incident related in the above sketch is a true one. and was related to the writer by a lady who was one of the party on the steamer. London Freeman. LOW BUTCH PHILOSOPHY.

The Necessity of tiurding Against Damp Floors and Crowded Quarters. In building poultry houses of course the first thing to be done is to select a location, and this is indeed a very im portant part of the work, as a great deal depends on it afterwards. The principal part to observe, in se lecting the spot, is to have it dry and well drained, so that there will never be any standing water near the house or yards, or dampness of any kind, as this is very disastrous to the health of the fowls. A damp floor in the hen house is the prime cause of the very dissagreeable disease of roup, which, being conta gious, is very hard to break up and sue cesssully eradicate after it once gets a firm start and is well established in the flock. None of the common breed of fowls are fond of water or the application of any thing damp to their skin, and they generally avoid moisture as much as they possibly can. The best location for their house is a well-drained sandy spot. This however is sometimes im possible to obtain, and in such cases the breeder should elevate the spot where the house is to be built, by filling in with sand or sandy soil, which can generally be obtained with but very lit tle trouble. The artificial draining should always be practiced by breeders who have but little choice of selection, but have to take what they have on account of small quarters, and are tied down to the space immediately adjacent to their dwellings By thus elevating the spot the quarters will be made healthy for the fowls, and the difference in the results will amply pay for the extra trouble occa sioned. Crowding the fowls in quarters that are too small for them also has a ten dency to the same disorders that are caused by dampness, as they generally go together. The breeder should attend to this carefully, for there is nothing more conducive to disease and general disorder among fowls than the damp quarters in which they are compelled to pass their time, and of course without health they can never be made profit able and desirable to keep. Farm, Field and Stockman. PROTECTING AKTMLAXS FROM FIiIES. At this season of the year the annoy ance to animals caused by flies and mos quitoes often amounts to positive agony, and at all times, in what is called good corn weather, it is sufficient to keep the stock eating enough to keep them in good condition. The animals will stand in the water or pass the greater part of the day in the shade, rather than expose themselves to the sunshine, going out to eat when driven by hunger, They quick ly lose flesh, the flow of milk shrinks, and a loss is incurred that cannot easily be made good again. At all times a good feed of grain is benificial to stock, but it is especially so when flies are very annoy ing, since it will do much to prevent shrinkage of flesh and milk. Horses and milch cows may be protected, in a great measure at least, by wiping them all over with a sponge dipped in soap suds in which a little carbolic acid has been mixed. Bulls confined in stables often suffer enough from the attacks of flies to drive them half mad, and there is no doubt that the continued fretting caused in this way develops a savage disposition. The most satisfactory results have fol lowed from spongfng with soap suds and carbolic acid mixed a Jersey bull confined in a stall. Chicago Tribune. By the operation of the new law, known as the Indian Severalty act, mil lions of acres set apart for the use of Indian tribes will evidently be released for the use of white settlers. Fortun ately the law contains provisions, which, if enforced, will give this land to actual settlers and keep in out of the hands of speculators and theives. The law says that no patent for a quarter section shall issue, except to a person who has taken it for a homestdad, and only after the land shall have been occupied as a homestead for five years. This is a very important restriction. The prin ciple which it embodies would now gov ern the distribution of all public lands if the senate had not by devious meth ods prevented the enactment of the house bill repealing the preemption, timber culture and desert land laws. The statement that the Government still has an area of over 1,000,000,000 acres of land subject to sale is calcula ted to deceive the avarage reader. Strict ly speaking, the figures are correct, but it is also true that a very large propor tion of this land is hopelessly sterile and unfit for any of the uses of agricul ture. The amount of tillable territory remaining undisposed of is comparative ly small and within a few years it will be impossible for the settler to find a quarter section which will be worth tak ing as a homestead. It is exceedingly important therefore, that such advan tages as are yet present in that respect should be closely guarded for the bene fit of honest and worthy citizens. A woman in Sciota, Illinois, publicly horsewhipped her husband a few days ago for coming home drunk. The fellow undoubtedly deserved the whip ping, and the example set by this in jured wife is one that might be followed in hundreds of instances with good effect, but if such a thing should be come a custom of the country it would necessarily make men more wary and deliberate in marrying them than they are now. Atchison Champion: The Santa Fe shops are going to be removed from To peka and established at ' Newton, Win field, Wichita, Wellington, Emporia, Geuda Springs, Nickerson and six or seven other points-with twenty comities yet to hear from. This infonnatian is obtained from the enterprising and re liable journals of the places Based, and may be relied mpoa. Tht New and Old Method. Some one has taken the trouble to find how far a farmer has to walk to put in and attend forty acres of corn. It is figured out as follows: To plow the ground with a sixteen inch plow, he travels 350 miles, to harrow the ground thoroughly before planting, he will have to walk 50 miles; to cultivate it afterwards he will have to walk 300 miles, making a grand total of 700, besides the gathering. But the enterprising farmer of to-day with his sulky plow and other improved farming implements, manages to ride a large, if not the larger portion of these figured miles. If you dont believe it ask one of the agents engaged in sell ing agricultural machinery and implements. A Massachusetts man just back from the west said the other day: "I have been astonished in going through the western country to note the remarka ble stage of improvements which they have attained. You get off the cars at any town of 3,000 to 5,000 inhabitants or larger, you will find yourself in the midst of a civilization that is equal to any of the great cities of the east. You find electric lights, perfect tele phone and telegraph district messenger services, modern "improvements in the way of sanitary drainage, street cars, fine public buildings and perfect fire service. They're way ahead of New England towns." Certain newspapers and unscientific writers persist in confounding a tor nado with a cyclone. A tornado is a violent gust of wind, with a whirling, progressive motion, usually accompanied with severe thunder and lightning, and torrents of rain, 'and of short duration, and of narrow and restricted scope. A cyclone is a clearly defined rotary storm of wide circuity purely electrical, and much more distructive than tornadoes. There has been a number of tornadoes in Kansas within the last ten years, but the record of cyclones is comparatively small. The word "boodle" is having a tre mendious run all over the continent, and is taking on various and singular meanings. In the great cities it is used when referring to the plunder which Jolitical corruptionists make off with, n the far west it means ordinary mon ey. The Indians on a Utah reservation call their annuities "Uncle Sam's boodle," and a weekly paper in Mon tana facetiously refers to a collection in church as resulting in "a goodly supply of boodle." These things are enough to make the perspiration start. A pretty, amiable, fashionable young lady of Philadelphia, while recently visiting a genteel family in New York, was in the guests' bedroom of the house where she was staying, engaged in clean ing her pistol. It accidently exploded, shooting her fatally in the head. What business had a pretty, amiable and fashionable young lady with a pistol, cleaning and carrying it around with her on her visits, like a Montana cow boy? Every portion of every county in south west Kansas has been heard from, and all reports are to the effect that the rains have been abundant, and that the farm ers are jubilant. Garden City 8entinel.
