On Saturday night. after supper the three women were attacked with violent pains.followed by excessive vomiting, and shortly after ward Mrs. Kelly was taken in a like manner. Dr. Rtdd was immediately called, and gave it as his opinion that all had been poisoned in some unaccount able manner. The effects of the drug were soon destroyed, and none of those afflicted were seriously injured. The whole affair is quite mysterious, and the officers are at a total loss to account for it. The Omaha Herald of the 25th inst. In speaking of the annual meeting of the Omaha Athletic club, for the elec tion of officers, says: "C. F. Tuttle and Colonel Butler were elected by accla mation to fill the offices of president and vice-president respectively." The sel ection of Colonel Butler for the position was a good'one, as aside from his per sonal qualifications in other respects, he possesses well known athletic abilities, and is likewise an ardent ad mirer of all kinds of out-door sports The colonel's martial figure clad in sweater and high boots, was often seen at an early hour last summer, taking a morning spin around town, and this, as well as his close attention to his physic lal health. accounts for the fact that to day the colosel takes fully as deep an interest in athletic as do his grown emsssets Almssal ammaam a5 s.aea Notice is hereby given to all owners ot horses, mules, swse, casttle, sheep, pgoats or swine within the city limit, that tfrom and after thisdatesay o ambatoeaktoad running at large and unattended within the limts of this city and upon the streets and alleys thereof, will be im pounded as provided by Ordinanme No. 42, and held subject to thepenaltims pro ilded in said ordinance.

STILL. .IMORE sUcPICIOUS. When the western papers were read during the day many persons saw the following accornts of one Lester. who claimed to be agent for Sells Brothers' circus: LivI ,.s·l ro. May _.u.--This evening a man arrived fromn the west on the pas senger train and registered at the Alber marle as William Lester. Sells Brothers' Big Show. A few minutes later he went to Harvey's meat market and or dered ( .000 pounds of meat for the show. On the strength of the order he hor rowed 20t of thie proprietor. but the lat ter became suspicious later and had the officers look the man up. It was found that he had no contract blanks of any kind or anything going to pro,\'e that he was a circus uan. lie 0was ordered to reuturn the money or go to jail. but he was unllablie to return Imore than el3i of it. iHowevi-r. he was allowed to go at liberty. .rT BUTTE. Fronm Livingston Lester jumped to lIutti. and among his work was detailed the followmng. which was developed by a row he i,; with Fred Kerth. a bill pots ter. whomn he also tried to swinlile: liCTrr.. May 21. A.,niiig others with whonl h iphas dlone usiness inl the city is lfenry Nickel.the butcher, with whom he ente.red into a iicontract to supply the circus with iueat to the ampiunht of Ciii . liefore awarding the contract. however. Lester dt-iui:tliled a cinlllisulsion orn the amllunt. claiming that all agents got a •rake ift." Mr. Nickel accepted the its psition and agreedI tio a counissiin if per cent. makging Lester's share 3P)0. Of this amount lie was paid one half in two paytnents, one of i10 and the other of e5. he visiting the shop twice during the day to draw money. of which article he appeared to be unusually short for a contracting agent. He also made a con tract with the Eagle bakery for a supply of 1 read and arranged for the usual com mission. The bakery man. however. re fused to pay in advance and gave Les ter a due bill for the amount. with the agreement that. when he paid for the bi-ead. he would leave Lester's "rake off" with Dan Tewey. propretor of the South ern hotel. where Lester is stopping. The baker appeared to be suspicious of his man and in the event that his sus picion proves to be well grounded he will not be any of the losers. Several days ago the Spokane papers contained an account of the transaction in the city of a man representing him self to be contracting agent for Sells Brothers, but, as it was found out when too late, he proved to be an impositor. This man followed Lester's plan of making contracts and collecting com missions on the same. This fact came gether with a letter he has from Peter Sells, cautioning him to be careful about making contracts for bill posting with men pretending to be agents, made him think that Lester was not what he claims to be. As nobody preferred any charges againt Lester, the chief was compelled to turn. him loose, although half inclined to think as Kerth does. aster says he will remain in the city until next Monday, and advises all who doubt him to telegraph to SellsBrothers and reelve proo that he is all right. These statements were shown to Franklin yesterday, and he quietly said: -That fellow is not Sells' agent, as I saw the regular man in Minneapolis ten days ago." Franklin registered at the Macqueen early yesterday morning, and claimed to have come from the east, but it has since been shown that he came from the nI TwE TOILu. Late last night Franklin became in toxicated, and while some ladies were passing along Park street used very rough language. He was arrested for being drunk and this.morning was fined 10 and costs by Magistrate Oibb, in de fault of which he was committed. Chief Jackson also has a telegram from Bozeman. asking his arrest fo fraudulently obtaining a eastward ticke from Bozeman to Livingston. and thi will be attended to later. A.n Old Tiat .r UGone.

Towers went out for a horseback ride. and upon her return. Mabel. her littledaughter, begged Mr. Towers to let her take a ride also. Mr. Towers finally lifted the little girl into the saddle, and started to lead the animal across the street. The horse made a frantic lunge to run. and Mr. Towers, with much presence of mind, grabbed the child by the arm with one hand, while he endeavored to hold the horse with the other. By the time he had the little one safely off the horse, the latter was making a pretty lively pace, and when Mr. Towers let go of the bridle. both he and Mabel rolled in the dirt, but luckily both escaped injury. The horse ran around to Jesse Haston as stable, where he is kep, and then stopped. He is a very getle animal and no one can understand what could have frighted him. A Leader.
