NEAR BEENGLYNCHED three Men Needlessly Shot by a Too Fresh Pinkerton Policeman, Who Narrowly Escapes Being" Lynched by Indignant Citizens. Valuable Tract of Land Do nated at Farg-o for Col lege Purposes. Emma Seibert Narrowly Es capes Death in a Man kato Shop. Special to the Globe. Pi.ATTSMOUTir, "Neb., May 17.— About i o'clock last night two men got into a fight on lower Main street. A police man called one of the Pinkerton guards, in the employ of the Burlington Rail road company, to his assistance. While the two officers were walking up street with their prisoner they met two broth erhood engineers named Frank Dills and Peter Rogers, who inquired what the men were arrested for. The Pinker ton answered gruffly and a quarrel fol lowed, during which blows were ex changed between the Pinkerton and Rogers and the former, drawing a revol ver, shot Rogers, who fell to the ground. A crowd immediately gathered and the Pinkerton took to flight, closely pur sued. He had gone about a block when he was stopped by a crowd of strikers, one of whom ran into a store and re turned with a rope. There were cries of "Hang him, hang him," and the Pinkerton, drawing his revolver, began tiring again. One shot brought down Frank Dills, the shot taking effect in the thigh, and the oilier struck a special officer named Carein in the leg. The Pinkerton then escaped to the Perkins house, which was soon surrounded by a large crowd, who threatened lynch ing. A thorough search of the house failed to reveal the Pinkerton, how ever, and it is thought he escaped from the rear of the building and left the city. Rogers is in the most serious con dition of the three wounded men, hav ing been shot in the jaw, »the ball pass ing out through the chin. Capt. Pinnes, of the Pinkertous, brought twenty extra men into the city early this morning. LIBERAL DONATION. A Valaaable Tract of Laaad Given to a College. Special to the Globe. Fargo, Dak., May 17.— Harriet Young, of this city, has always been noted for her philanthropic spirit. The latest act of generosity was a donation to-day of ten acres of valuable property just north of tne city for a site for a Congregational college, and she further agrees to sell an adjoining five acres for the nominal sum of 81,000, the only con ditions attached to her gift are that the coming fall term of the college shall open with five professors, and that within two years after perfection of title to the property, there shall be a building on the site to the value of at least $12,000. This very liberal offer and conditions have been accepted. Build ing operations will soon be commenced.

Special. to the Globe New Ulm, Minn., May Last night about 10 o'clock, while Marshal Winkei man and Night Policeman Loesch were attempting to arrest Wenzel Martinka, who had been quarreling with bis wife, Martinka broke away, and refusing to stop when commanded to halt, five pis tol shots were fired by the marshal and night police. One of them went through Martinka's right lung. He was not captured until he had ran several blocks. He was taken to the hospital. There are but slight chances of his recovering. This morning at 10 o'clock both police men were walking the streets, no arrests having been made until County Attor ney Commerville arrived. While Mar tinka was known as a dead beat and good-for-nothing, public sentiment does not uphold the conduct of the police. Indians as Voters. Special to the Globe. Detroit, Minn., May 17.— Theodore Beaulieu, editor of the White Earth Progress, said in a speech made in the Democratic convention held here last week that efforts would be made to have voting precincts opened at White Earth at the next general election, as there were a large number of voters there, who had always been deprived of the privilege of voting because of the want of a voting precinct; that many of the Indians had for years lived under adopted habits and customs of civiliza tion, ceased all tribal relations and con nections and had in all respects lived like white people, and were therefore legal voters under the laws of this state, which was indorsed as the unanimous sentiment of the convention. A Singular Accident. Special to the Globe. Watertown, Dak., May 17.— A sing ular accident occurred last night in the dry goods house of Ellefson & Co., who occupy one of the fine rooms in the Da kota Loan and Trust company's build ing.

It is now said the Schwan boys have skipped the country, taking with them all the mort gaged property, thus leaving the attor neys to settle the bail, besides losing their fee bills, from their own pockets. The boys were not satisfied with run ning off the* mortgaged property, but sold a cow upon which there was a lien to a farmer at Kindred, then stole the animal back a few days later and ran her off with the rest of the herd. A Missaaag Woman. Special to the Globe. Marquette, Mich., May 17.— The little town of Clarksburg, Mich., is thrown into a state of terrible suspense over the mysterious disappearance of Mrs. Felix Leonard. The lady has been ill for some days. Between 4 and 5 this morning she left her bed, wear ing only her night clothes, and though the whole town is out no trace of her can be found. It is thought she has thrown herself into the river, which is very high and swift. Temporary in sanity is supposed to be the cause. Rosniaaeil Operations. Special to the Globe.

Fearful Damage to Stock and Growiaa«r Crops. St. Louis, May 17.— Advices from Mississippi river towns above here say that at 4:15 o'clock this morning a break occurred in the Sny levee at- a point about two miles below the Han nibal bridge, and this was followed at 0:45 o'clock by a larger and more se rious one above the bridge a short dis tance. The wildest excitement pre vailed in Hannibal as well as among the few farmers who had stubbornly remained in the bottoms. Two hundred men who had been engaged all night in the work of stopping seeps and placing bags of sand on top of the levee, to keep the river back, attempted to close the breaks, but without success. The more sensible farmers had removed all their live stock to the bluffs six miles distant, but not a few remained until the moment of the calamity, conse quently they sustained serious losses. Hogs, cows and horses could be seen swimming in the Hood until they came in contact with some obstacle upon which their bodies would be mangled. The smaller houses in the bottoms are wrecked. As yet no loss of human lives is reported. The territory now covered with water.it forty-five miles long and six miles wide, with 50,000 acres under cultivation. The depth of the water is from one to twenty feet, consequent upon the breaking of the levee. The river is receding rapidly. The tenants state that if the ground gets in favorable condition that by the mid dle of June they can raise late corn. The loss at this writing is incalculable. The damage to railroad property will be great. From Keokuk word comes that it was thought the worst was over, but a very heavy rain set in there this morning and as the Dcs Moines river is rising rapidly there is no telling what the result will be. The overflow is constantly increasing, covering more land every day, and the water is getting deeper. Vast quantities of water are pouring over the levee about a mile north of Alexandria, which forms a swift current that swe ps through the town and threatens to carry away a number of houses whose founda tions have been weakened by the pro longed inundation. Many families have abandoned their homes and sought tem porary quarters elsewhere. --, -«»» Don't Forget It.

Petersburg, Va., May 17.—Dele gates to the Republican state conven tion began to gather in the Academy of Music just before noon and promptly at that hour,the building being about two thirds full, Gen. Mahone came upon the stage from the rear entrance. His ap pearance was the signal for an outburst of applause, which the general, how ever, failed to notice. A few minutes after, Hon. John S. Wise, the leader of the opposition to Mahone's unit rule, ap peared in that Dart of the dress circle alloted to the Third district, and was also greeted with applause. The no ticeable feature ot the convention was the great increase in the number of while delegates, some of the districts being almost entirely .rep resented by them. At 12:30 o'ciock Gen. Mahone stepped to the front of the stage and was greeted with tremendous and enthusiastic ap plause, which continued several min utes and which was interspersed with rounds upon rounds of cheers for Blame, Sherman, the unit rule, the Re publican party, etc. When quiet had been restored Gen. Mahone, after ac knowledging the compliment,proceeded to address the convention. It was nearly midnight when the committee on credentials reported. The delegates at large are Johh G. Watts, of Laze well; S. Brown Allen, of Agusta; A. H. Harris of Dindwiddie, and Gen. Will iam Mahone, of Petersburg. Electors at large— Col. William Lamb, of Norfolk, and Frank S. Blair, of Wythe. The unit rule at Chicago and the continuance of the present plan of organization was adopted. The plat form pledges fidelity to the party, arraigns the Democratic party as false to its professions and as guilty of a long list of short-comings, particularly on the subject of the taiiff, the surplus, the civil service, the Blair school bill, and its foreign policy, and it calls upon the voters of the stale to assist in putting the Repub lican party into power in order that it may do the things Which the Democrats have left undone as above. It calls on Virginia's representatives in congress to maintain and extend protection, remove the tax from tobacco and fruit and ob tain liberal provision for the rivers and harbors of the state. It declares Vir ginia a Republican state. «3». ADVICE ABOUT EATING. Eminent Doctors Smashing Some Old Superstitions About Food. Mail and Express. Some recent remarks by Dr. James C. White, professor of dermatology in Har vard university, are directly in line with an article published only a few days ago in these columns on the sub ject of sensible eating. There is, of course, no subject concerning which people need information more than they do about eating, and there are very few subjects on which more ridiculous notions are extant. "One man's meat is another man's poison" is an old and true saying, yet a great majority of mankind have ideas of diet that are formed from the experience of other people,and these ideas are very common ly absurd. Dr. White disposes of some of these notions by the authoritative ut terance of a thorough scientist. For ex- , ample, he touches on the old wives' fable that butter in liberal quantities will cause children's faces to break out with "butter sores." He declares, what intelligent people have long known, that good butter uncooked is perfectly harmless food so far as the skin is con cerned, and he might have gone much farther, for the limitation was unneces sary. He says, however, that the notion alluded to probably came from the fact that the use of impure butter in food otherwise indigestible, may have dis turbed the stomach and produced im pure blood in some cases. It is more likely to have come from the efforts of parents of limited means to curb their children's indulgence in an expensive dainty. It is certain that much of the prejudice against candy came from this particular cause, though with candy as with butter, the prejudice is entirely justifiable in reference to adulterated and impure grades. Nothing is more common than to hear parents tell their children that eating candy will ruin tlieir teeth, but it is most likely to be an utterance dictated by economy. At all events, no educated dentist will indorse the statement. Thr notion that buckwheat cakes and oatmeal are productive of skin dis eases is also attacked, and pretty thoroughly demolished by Prof White, as well as that absurdity about tomatoes, which was started by Dio Lewis a gene ration or so ago. He said that tomatoes were proouctive of cancer, and that they lohsened and destroyed the teeth, Dr. White declares tomatoes and oat meal to be harmless and valuable foods, and points at the simple fact that the only danger in eating buckwheat lies in the fact that it is apt to be served up hot in the form of improperly cooked cakes. These may, and are very likely to upset the digestion. He declares, moreover, that a good digestion and a healthy appetite will take care of the skin, as far as the effects of food are concerned, and that it matters little what kind of food is used so long as it is pure, of good quanity and properly prepared. The healthy stomach will turn it into good blood. This, it will be seen, is a similar utterance to that of Dr. Austin Flint, recently quoted, only that Dr. White, treating as he did on the skin only, did not make so sweep ing a statement as Dr. Flint, who said: "Eat what you like, when you like, aud eat as much as you like, "iou may get gout that way, but not dyspepsia." 7 f . -♦■ CHINA'S DEVILISH TRAFFIC.. Young Girls Bought and Sold for the Vilest Purposes. St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "The particular branch of the slave traffic that flourishes in Hong Kong, and which gives the authorities there the greatest amount of trouble," said a traveler, "is the importation of kid naped girls from the neighboring ter ritory, especially from Tonquin." "Did you see any slaves elsewhere than in Hong Kong?" "Very many in Canton, and also in the different cities of Tonquin. The French, upon their arrival in Tonquin, found this traffic in full blast, and took very severe measures to abolish it. I ' once saw nine men beheaded in one morning, and though not particularly bloodthirsty or of a cruel disposition, I remember being a perfectly uncon cerned spectator of this terrible sconce. The crime of which these men, all well to-do Chinese merchants of HaiDhong, had been convicted deprived them of all human sympathy and their lives were well sacrificed in purging the country of such a frightful traffic. They had all been found guilty of kidnaping young girls and selling them into a life of shame in Hong Kong, Canton, Macao and adjacent cities. "The manner of effecting the seizures was by enticing the children aboard of the junks along the river front under the pretext of purchasing the candies and fruits which the little ones peddled on the quay. Once aboard the vessels the poor frightened children -were gagged and bound and hidden below until so far away from land that their cries could not be heard on shore. It seemed to me that no punishment that human hands could inflict would be adequate for the punishment of these inhuman wretches. Three of them died a comparatively easy . death, as their heads were stricken off with a single blow each, but the other six must have suffered greatly, for they were hacked from the middle of the back to the top of the head, and yet I could not bring myself to feel any sym pathy for them. "This kidnaping would seem to be absolutely unnecessary in a country where girls can be purchased from their parents at so small a cost as is possible in Tonquin. There, to my personal knowledge for I took great pains to in vestigate this ' feature of Ori ental life very carefully— was considered a high price for girls from twelve to eighteen rears of age. Capt. George, 'a Greek, whom I knew in Tonquin as the commander of a body of Chinese troops in the French service, and afterwards as a pilot on the Red river, told me that he had a Tonquin woman employed as & cook, who, after being with him a week or ten days, went down the river to bring up her family. When, however, she reached her home she was both sur prised and indignant to find that her husband had the day before her arrival sold their eldest, daughter, a girl of thirteen, to the master of a Chinese junk for eight Mexican dollars. "Why," she said, "that girl ought to have brought $15 at least." "I know that there are slaves for sale in Hong Kong, for I have seen them. I was powerless to interfere, as the vic tims cannot in any way be induced to testify against those who hold them in bondage, and both claim and seem to be happy. I have often talked with the young slaves both in Hong Kong and Canton, and they have told me that they have been sold by their parents to this or that woman, whom they call their 'pocket mother.' in contradistinction to their real mother. The usual term for which they are sold is ten years, after which they are their own mistresses, though it is doubtful if their condition is much improved by that Tact. "One dealer in slaves whom I knew in Hong Kong was a woman named Cum-Yeow, who had herself been a slave in her youth. She had been a beauty in her younger days and was still comely at thirty-five. Not only was she unusually intelligent, but quite a linguist, speaking English and French fluently. Her numerous speculations in human flesh and investments in fan tan banks, which she conducted in Kowloon, across the bay, on Chinese territory, because forbidden in Hong Kong, had secured for her a consider able amount of money, as the result of the exercise of keen business sense united with a not too tender conscience. Her house, a flat in one of the hillside streets, was beautifully furnished in Chinese fashion, and herself and house hold handsomely clothed in fine silk and furs from Mongolia and Siberia. ■ At this house I saw several little girls, ranging in ages from eight to twelve years. When 1 asked if they were her children, she sain: "No; all belong slavee." "I asked the price of the oldest and she told me $1,000, at the same time in forming me that the girl had already been taught many accomplishments, among them she mentioned singing, and despite my assurances that 1 was not in the least fond of , music, and did not care to have a display of the child's talents, she gave me a speci men that pierced my ears like a knife. She could also cook opium for smoking in a pipe, and, wonderful to relate, was equally skillful with either hand. Here was a prize, indeed. "I understood from Cum-Yeow that such girls were not for the European market, but for wealthy and aesthetic Chinamen in Canton, 100-Chow and other big cities, some going even to Pekin and beyond, where Canton and Macao girls are held in high esteem. Cum-Yeow told me that she bought these children in Macao when they were very young and brought them up tenderly until arrived at a salable age.-' ■.■ Her Royal Bath. The princess of England whose com plexion is not only the finest, but who has best stood the wear and tear of time, takes her morning plunge regularly, and in water fairly cold, but she is particularly careful to promptly make use of the flesh brush, using gloves of moderate roughness rapidly over the surface of the body, and, finally, the rough towel in a quick, general rub, occupying both for the bath and this massage, if one may call it such, twenty minutes in all. At night the same lady's bath is prepared tepid and of distilled water, the admirable ad vantage of which is not properly under stood. Every particle of foreign mat ter is removed from distilled water, so that it is absolutely pure. It costs about 12 cents per gallon, and can be used, a quart at a time, for a quick sponge both, with admirable effect, especially when combined with a little glycerine and rose water. _ -• • ■;•; MAN'S LOT.

ENSILAGE FOR, THE DAIRY. Some Opinions of Experimenters Given at a Wisconsin Institute. D. F. Sayre, of Rock county, spoke on the growing of corn. He prefers to plow a second crop of clover under in the fall, plowing four to ' five inches deep and lapping or shingling the fur rows. In spring, as soon as the ground is thawed and dry enough, he furrows two or three times before planting, at intervals of a few days.apart, to fine the soil and kill " all germinating seeds of weeds. Also once or twice after the corn is up, with fine steel-toothed har row. This, with work with a two-horse cultivator, gives a good crop free from weeds and without hand hoeing. John Gould, of Ohio, said that for many years in the West men saved only the ears of corn, wasting the stalks or roughage. We have begun to find the crop of stalks rightly saved to be worth as much per acre as the corn. The early advocates of ensilage advised to raise corn for fodder alone, the other extreme; planting or sowing the corn very thick, not forming ears at all, cut ting while immature and putting in the pits. But corn is a grain plant, and is worth most for ensilage if plahted in drills three and a half "feet apart, with a kernel every twelve inches, using using about eight quarts of seed per acre. This lets the sun in, to warm the soil and mature the ears. Two-thirds of the corn crop, he said, is the gift of the sunshine and the atmosphere; hence give both a chance to get in their work iv maturing the crop. Cut and store in the silo just as the ears begin to glaze. An acre of ensilage, iv his opinion, will carry as much stock as two or two and a half acres of good meadow hay. Ex periments at the Massachusetts station show.that corn fodder properly planted and matured is worth four times as much per ton for feed as if thickly sown and cut while miniatured. lie prefers the large Southern or "B. and W." corn for ensilage. It withstands drouth better than our smaller Northern varieties. THE BRINE METHOD To Clean Seed Wheat— An Old and Successful Method. Fountain, Minn., May 7.— looking over the Farm Notes in the Weekly Globe of May 3, 1 noticed a few words about a pickle for wheat before seed ing. It did seem strange that it should be thought a new or strange thing to do, for this method my husband fol lowed over thirty years ago on a farm he owned, but we did not reside on it in fact, never used the farm only for wheat and corn until he sold it. At seeding time a very strong brine was made in a half barrel tub— is, a barrel sawed through the middle— and the strong brine served for a double purpose, one to remove any and all seeds of weeds or oats that might be mixed with the wheat, which a very strong brine will surely bring to the surface, from which it can be skimmed off with a large skimmer containing small holes. The skimmer was made to order. A good skimmer can be made by taking an old milk pan and with a small sharp- Sointed nail drive holes through the ottom of the pan, or anything that will take the stuff from the surface of the brine, after the wheat has been repeat edly stirred up to let the refuse rise. If the brine is strong enough it never fails to clean seed wheat perfectly. The re sult? Well this process was used every season, and sometimes the seed laid on the barn floor— week once— sometimes three or four days alter being washed on account of a rain falling and prevent ing the sowing being done as antici pated when the washing began. Some times the wheat began to sprout, al though repeatedly turned anil worked over with a grain shovel— and this was another thing done— some fresh-burned lime was treated to just enough water to powder the lime, and this fine lime powder was very carefully spread over the wheat until every grain had a show of lime on it; the shovel was used al most every hour most vigorously and the results never failed of a good clean crop of No. 1 wheat. ■*/ ; .;.-:, Mrs. Majitiia Ciiandall. — : «tt» — : — DIVERSIFIED FARMING. Not a New Subject, But Will Bear Repetition. It is a well established fact in com mercial circles that it is possible to over-produce in anything, and conse sequently diminish the immediate de mand for it. and for a time its practical value to the producer as well as the dealer. It is natural that farming should be no exception to other kinds of business in this regard, says the New England Farmer, and oftentimes the cause of meager prices for cer tain farm products may be found in the fact that farmers * have been too eager to produce them because somebody has "struck a bonanza" in their cultivation. One man's success in any business is energizing to a host of men who hear about it, and who then strive to ape his characteristics with the hope that they, too, may acquire his success. As a result a large namber get "stuck." The lesson to be drawn from such proceedings is one of economy of force, namely, that it were better to ex pend our forces on more than one thing, si that if the one thing fail we nave yet left a few sources of income with which to keep above water. Or, if we wish to make a specialty, let us try something that people have not lost their heads on and see if we cannot be the lucky man who starts the rush in stead of the individual who follows in the wake. In other words, strive to be the progressive individual. In New England a sort of mixed husbandry seems safest and best, although if a man has his eyes open he may now and then see something that he can pay nearly his whole attention to and get large re turns for a trivial outlay.

While the tramp is utterly indifferent to free trade, he stands up squarely for free Philadelphia Call. History repeats itself in the tramp, who was strapped when a boy and has remained strapped ever since. — Yonkers Statesman. '. "We have- enough treatises on the liquor question," remarked the tramp; "what lam after now is a treat us on — Washington Critic. "Pa," said a New Hampshire farmer's daughter, "the laziest tramp I ever saw came into the yard to-day. He stood there by the woodpile and let the dog undress him."— Burlington Free Press. -o«- ■LOCAL MINTION. Genuine Spring l.aanb To-Day. F. W. Luley & Son, 332 Jackson.
