David City, Neb., Sept. 13. About four weeks ago a dog belonging to Simon Malley, who lives on a farm seven miles northwest of David City, became mad and before he could be killed had bitten ten head of Mr. Malley's cattle, running in the pasture. The dog was soon killed and Mr. Malley kept close watch of his cattle. On Tuesday of last week he discovered three head of them running about the pasture, acting wild and frothing at the mouth. Mr. Malley at once shot and killed them, and during the week two more had to be killed. Yesterday he killed two others, all showing symp toms of hydrophobia. The other three bitten have not yet shown symp toms of the rabies, Found In nn Old Can. Washington, D. C, Sept. 13 A peculiar case is about to interest the lreadury Department officials, lhir ty-years ago Samuel G. Bailey, who at the the time was Assistant Keeper of the Montauk (L. I.) light, lost the "warrant issued by the Government for his salary for the quarter. A dili gent search was made for it, but with out succes. The supposition was that the wind had blown it into the sea. It was found the other dayjby Wm. Henry Cook, of Bridgehampton, un dei peculiar circumstances. For the purpose of letting oyster spawn cling to them, Mr. Cook was throwing into Mecox Bay a number of rusty old cans. One would not sink, and an examina tion revealed the fact that it was seal ed up. When opened it was found to contain the order which Mr. Bailey had lost more than ajquarterofa cen tury before. WACO, TEXAS, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1888. The Pope nudK. of I. New York. Sept. 13. A Rome cablegram to the Catholic News an nounces that the decree of holy office on the Knights of Labor question, favorable to that organization, has been forwarded to Cardinal Gibbons. It will be remembered that in 1887 his holiness, concurring with the ideas set forth in a letter of Cardinal Gib bons in favor of the knights, decided that there was no cause for action The pope decided that in Canada, where the mandament had been issued against the knights, member of the or der could receive absolution on promise of obedience to further decis ions of the holy see. The matter having been placed before the holy office this decree is the result. It set tles for good tbe question as far as Rome is concerned, provided, of course, that the constitution and by laws of the order remain the same. Railroading Years Ago. Whentve picture the surroundings of the traveler upon railways during the first ten or fifteen years of their existence, we find his journey was not one to be envied. He was jammed into a narrow seat with a stiff back, the deck of the car was low and flat, and ventilation in winter impossible. The springs of the car were hard, the jolting intolerable, the windows rattled like those of the modern omnibus, and conversation was a luxury that could be indulged in only by those of recognized superiority 01 lung power. 1 ne Draices were clumsy and of little service. The ends of the flat bar rail were cut dia gonally, so that when laid down they would lap and form a smoother joint. Occassionally they became sprung; the spikes would not hold and the end of the rail with its sharp point rose high enough for the wheel to rtn un der it, rip it loose and send the pointed end through the floor of the car. This was called a "snake's head," and the unlucky being sitting over it was likely to be impaled against the roof.-Scribner. Hg 8 P 3! ere - h- 3 05 - a 2. t 2. 2 S3 s p o 3" Z Mcmphls Quarantined. Memphis, Tenn., Sept 13. The following telegram was received this morning: Decatur, Sept 13. I be lieve that Mr. Spencer died of yellow fever, although the case was typical.

I will remain here until the question is settled and will promptly notify the public if anything suspicious occurs, signed Jerome Cochran, M. D., State Health Officer. Memphis has ordered that no in tercourse be had with Decatur, which is 1C0 miles east of the city and the trains of the Memphis and Charleston road are not allowed to stop there. Later. A special from Decatur Ala., says: Another case of yellow fever developed here to-day. Great ex citement among the people, and all trains leaving the city are crowded with citizens fleeing from the town. Cumberland Presbyterians. Dallas, Sept 13. The Texas syn od of the Cumberland Presbyterian church convened here to-day. Rev, Mr. Wadkins, the first minister of the denomination ordained on Texas soil preached the opening sermon.

This is the first meeting under the new regime and there will be formed a basis of future representation. Each church in the state sends its pastor and one elder to represent it at this meeting and it is said the number of attendants ex ceed 500. Feuud neail. Texarkana. Ark., Sept. 13.

For nine years past Miss Emma, who is now 32 years old, has been a bedridden invalid. Her di. sease was called consumption of the blood. During her nine years' con finement she has not uttered a loud word. Part of this time she was able to lisp in a faint whisper. Frequently sne was thought to oe dead.
