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.

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.
The fairgrounds property, which had
previously been secured for a site, will

Shot by the Police.
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. The Electric Lighting company
had taken some the small globes from
the wires and so insulated the wires
that when a Chinese lantern was at
tached by means of a wire completed
the current and caused an explosion anil
ignited the lantern and threatened the
store and building. Mr. Carleton cut
the wire with a pair of scissors, in
which a nick was melted as though they
were of lead. Mr. Carleton made a nar

Dcs Moines, 10., May 17.— lowa
supreme court having recently decided
that the Dcs Moines street railway had
the exclusive right to operate cars in
the streets by means of animal power,
a test case was brought to obtain a de

would be allowed to use electric or
other power to propel street cars, and
to-day an opinion was rendered in
which it was held that such right ex

wan boys were arrested last winter
for stealing grain. They mortgaged
their stock to J. W. Filley and R. O.

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. --,

Mahone Has Things Pretty Near
His Own Way.
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,

Wythe. The unit rule at Chicago and
the continuance of the present plan of

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,

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 .
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
"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

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

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

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.

Not a New Subject, But Will Bear
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.
