A resident of our town , while under
the beatific influence of coffin varnish ,
came near losing his life at the round
house , Monday night. While in a state

gone to sleep. During the night the
turn-table was used , and fortunately for

was assisting in moving the table , and
who carried a torch , spied the form of
the sleeping person , else the probabili

A tramp entered the room of one of
the coal-heavers at Akron , some days
since , and took a suit of clothing hang
ing therein , leaving his own time-worn
garments in the place of the borrowed ( ? )
ones. Ascertaining , the following day ,
that a well-dressed tramp was at Eckley ,
the coal-heaver took the train for that
station , where the would-be gentlemanly
tramp was detained by the agent , who
promised the tramp transportation on
the coming train. The clothing worn
by the tramp proved to be the coal-
heaver's , and his trampship was uncere
moniously disrobed , and having been
given what remained of a pair of over
alls and a blouse , he was promptly
bounced. The tramp struck the road
running , and those who witnessed the
tramp's exit , think he is running yet ,
somewhere down in Kansas.

A very neat ( and -withal practical )
joke was perpetrated by Inspector Lee
of the U. S. Interior Department upon
the land attorneys at Oberlin , Kansas ,
recently. The Inspector assumed the
role of a land seeker , and visited each
land man in the town , inquiring con
cerning the timber-claim relinquishments -
ments in their possession. Every man
took the bait in a surprisingly voracious
manner , and gave Lee the information
desired , whereupon the Inspector went
to the local U. S. land office at Oberlin
and instead of making application for
the numerous and sundry timber claims ,
had them all cancelled. Obcrlin land
men are very cute not men that can't
learn and * profit and we imagine that
the person who catches them napping
again will be smooth , very.

Some queer things have transpired
in this city , the past few weeks , that evi
dently merit investigation ; and it is
rather surprising , indeed , that those
parties interested do not investigate the
affair fully and conclusively. Whatever
other facts exist , it is evident that some
one is short $800 , if the statements
concerning the matter are veracious.
If such is the case , the guilty party
should be ferreted out and just punish
ment meted to the same. If , on the
other hand , current statements are false ,
unjust suspicions should be removed.
While there seems to be an inclination
to smooth over and suppress , it were
much better that the real facts in the
"case be made public.

$ f)00,000 , they have not drawn very
heavily upon their resources.
Lewis Pate came up from Friend-
ville , Sunday night , on a week's visit to
his brothers in this vicinity. He had
quite an experience en-route , with the
conductor who had charge of the train.
Being late upon his arrival at the depot
at Friendville , he barely succeeded in
getting on the front steps of the baggage
car , after repeated attempts , supposing
that he could get back to th'c coach.
About four miles out of Friendville , the
train was stopped , and Mr. Pate of course
took advantage of the occasion to board
one of the coaches , or rather to attempt
to do so , as every attempt was frustra
ted by the conductor and crew , who fired
him off repeatedly into the ditch , not
withstanding Mr. Pate's protestations
that he didn't want to steal his way but
wanted to pay his i'arc. As the train
moved out , Mr. Pate tried to board each
car , and was repeatedly thrown off , un
til the train had attained such a speed
and he was so exhausted as to be una
ble to make further effort , and he was
compelled to walk to the next station ,
a tiresome journey through the darkness
of night. The conductor must have
taken Mr. Pate for a would-be robber ,
as he went so far as to threaten to shoot
him if he attempted to board the train.
We understand that whiskey , women
and cards in McCook are receiving the
