Jake KuLkel, who has about a regi ment of relatives in "these parts," was killed while at work in a mine, in Idaho, the early part of lait week. The deceased was a brother of Frank Kunkcl, of Xew Point. An Indiana farmer, who told his boys to burn every bumble bee's nett they found on tho farm, and who was complaining nt tho failure of his clovor crop, was surprised when Maurice Thompson, tho naturalist, said: "That is why your clover seed fails you: bum bio bees make your clover seed." It is a fact that n strong not of bumble bees is worth $20 to tho owner; for these in sects nro the chief agents iu fertilizing tho blossoms, heruby insuring a heavy crop of seeds. In Australia thero are no bumble bees of our kind, and they could not raise clover seed thero until they imjiorted some. Wo call the attention of our readers. this week, to the advertisement of that reliable house, Townsond, Wyatt fc Young, of St. Joseph. They offer special inducements to buyers. For every dol Inr's worth of goods purchased you will lie entitled to one of the following hand some Photo Etchings' : "The Horso Fair," size, 31x20; "Christ Before Pilate," 23x111 ; "Christ ia tho Templo," 23x21 ; and a "Scottish Raid," size, 3 1x20. These are handsome ro productions of thoorig inrl paintings on exhibition at tho Paris Exposition, nnd well worthy a place in any home. They nro also offering big bargains in ovory department. See "add" elsewhere in this issue. The indications are thnt the Iowa legislature is going to pass quite a strong prohibitory law against tramps. Any male person sixteen years and over go ing alxjut without having a visible call ing or business to maintain himself shall be deemed a tramp. Ho is to havo live days of solitary confine ment or ten days of hard labor. And it shall be unlawful for any sheriff or tho keeper of any jail to permit anyono convicted under the net to havo orjiossess any tobacco, nows pajier, cards or any other nrticlo of amusement or pastime, or to jicrmit such pert-oil to be kept or fed otherwise than stated in the commitment, nnd any sheriff or jail keejier who violates these provisions is subject to a lino not exceed ing $100 nor less than $2.1. That will stop calulxxise and jail keepers from being made into free boarding housed for tramps. -The Opcratta, entitled "The Gypsy Encampment." which has been in course of preparation for some time, by the local talent of our city, was prrFcntcd in tho Christian church Tuesday evening. Tho company represented a Gypsy camp in a true mid life-like manner. A num !er of the compositions were taken from Straus.' oiem, "Tho ( Jypsy Baron." The vords to the songs and also thedialoguc were written exprest.lv for this occasion. It is to this fact, jiorhai, that tho suc cess of tho venture is due. If thoroumls of npplauHO are to- Ijo taken as a crite rion, wo aro sure that the efforts of the performers were fully appreciated by the largo audience prefcnt. Tho receipt were aljout i'i'i, and after deducting the, cxieiiso wo trust there will bo a balance sufficiently large to enable the meuiljors of tho Christian church to accomplish the object for winch I hey set out pur chase a now carjiet for their houso of worship.

The high position taken by Holt county in the production of fruits is ono of tho results of this growing trade, for it is found that trees produced here do bet ter in transplanting, and n smaller por cent of lwa is su5iainetl by tho planter i Every day w-jgons pass through our streets loaded vith trees from tho Holt 1 County Xursory of X. F. Murray & Sons, e whoso nursery in rorbes township is now fully established. Mr. Murray began business here twenty years ago, selling nursery stock for other men. Ho was early convinced of tho advantages in fa vor of a first-class nursery in this county and gradually built up tho large business he is now engaged in. Each year nd.ls largely to tho stock of tho last. This year 120,000 trees and many thous-indw moro of vines, shrubs, etc., representing all classes of fruits suitable to this cli mate, will be found growing in this nur sery. A few days ago a car load of stock was shipped by tho Murrnys to St. Jo seph, and another to Mound City. Gnu member of the firm went to points in the eastern part of Andrew county, on tho St. Joseph & Des Moines road to super intend the delivery of the trees. A largo number of fanners in Andrew county aro getting thoir supplies here, and it is a fact worth mentioning that largo num bers come here without solicitation from canvassers, but through the representa tion of others who have bought their stock of tho Murrays for years past. Our reporter paid a visit to this nur sery during the past week.nnd, although it was n rough, disagreeable day, was surprised ot the activity of the trade Ono farmer from Andrew county took out about 750 trees, mostly apple; others took out largo numbers, besides which nearly n car load was taken to Forbes for shipment. Everj hotly was busy, but nil could talk pleasantly while they worked rapidly, Mrs. Murray, though a silont partner in the firm, tills an impor tant place in tho business, for all who como are cntortaincd nt her hospitable ljoard and thus sho and her children aro as busy as the others. We aro compelled to dismiss this subject for this time, but will resume it next woek. Itliiitlainl Contest. Wo are pleased to note that Maitland has fallen into the lino of progressive education. Tho lino of her progressive spirit is seer, in her declamatory contest on last Friday night. It was her first effort. But what may come from a feeble leginniiig?

EtitTon Skshnki: It seems from the reading ot tho H(, Joseph and Kan pas City papers, that there is a disposi tion manifested among somo of tho wealthy ones of both places to avoid tho payment of just taxes, by failing or re fusing to givo to tho assessor a correct list of their worldly wealth. A number of cases is mentioned of men who from the business thnt they are engaged in. arc supposed to !e away up in tho thous ands, while their list of taxable person able projierty is so surprisingly low thnt investigations nro proceeding with to ascertain the truth of tho matter. It in hinted that the same stnto of affairs exist in our own county. There nro men that from surroundings are believed to have much mora than they account for to the assessor. Tim mn of modest means are pretty generally correct in tho making up of their lists, and nre- very willing to piy their just nnd proper share of the Stato and county ex penses, and nro justly incensed, when it is learned tho wealthy ones resort to all manner of means to avoid n just assess ment. The law governing the assess ment of property and tho collection of tho rcvenu" is n just one, and every per son who fails or lefiifes to make n cor rect fitatcuvut of hi'i taxable proprrty ' should be made to suffer to tho full ex tent of tho law.
