Mrs. Kelly. a colored woman, who
lives opposite the old Drover house on
Sixth street. and takes in boarders, hav
ing at present the three inmat's of Con
nie IiotTman's house. 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

the principal reasons for this being that
he had the tylpewriter agreements. when
everyiboly Knows that circus agents are
always supplied with unlimitel printed
matter. the name of the show being the
principal document.
Franklineien went so far as to open
negotiations for a fine gray team
for the band wagon of the circus, and
spent a goaH deal of the afternoon in
driving around town behind them.
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'
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
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
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
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.

Last evening Mrs. C. B. 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.

Mr. Ir. J. McCowas
Kingsley, Iowa.
"In 1879 I had an eruption appear on my left
leg and arm. Sometimes it would ulcerate and
on account of It I was unable to work a great
deal of the time. I had seven doctors examine
and treat me without success. Some called it po.
rasis, some eczema, some salt rheum and one
knowing one called it prairie Itch. All the doo.
ts in the county had a trial but none did me a
particle of good. I spent all my spars money
trying to get sellef. Finally I was persuaded to
try Hood's Sarsaparilla. After using one and
ahalf bottles I saw the benefit. I have now
ed thethird bottle and ameemspn etlyes-.
I leeelved more benefit from three dollars'
worth of Hood's Sarsaparilla than from the
huadreds of dollars paid for advice and other
medicine. Any one suffering from skin trouble
will surely get relief in Hood's Sarsaparilla."
