in the show business, hence his success.

Secretary Bliss has affirmed the
land office decision on the application of
Archie G. Palmer of Central City, Neb.,
for the survey of an island on the Platte
river near that city. It is said that the
owners of abutting lands aro entitled to
land in the middle of the stream and the
application is rejected on the ground
that the island in question is therefore
not public land. Have you land on
shore, opposite newly-formed islands?
Sheriff Nuquist has recently pur
chased a couple of bloodhounds from
Ohio parties and received them by ex
press last week. One of the dogs is
young with but little training, but in
what practice Mr. Nuquist has given
him is working satisfactorily. The older
dog has a good record and together
they promise to make a good team.
There are but two other sets of blood
hounds in this state and it is believed
there will be good business for all.

Back taxes to the amount of $320,

from Tim Kinney, a well known sheep
raiser and shipper from Wyoming the
other day. Some years ago he moved a
band of sheep from the county without
paying the taxes assessed against them,
to the above amount, and the present
opportunity was embraced by Sheriff
Kreader to levy on a train load he had
just unloaded here, on the way to
market. The money came forthwith.
Fremont Herald.
Hearing that Thomas Krebs, an
old-time Platte county typo, is at the
Printers' Home near Colorado Springs,
we mailed him a copy of The Jocbxal
last week, and received from him a very
interesting letter concerning the Home,
and the surrounding country. We are
inclined to think that when Krebs
didn't join to his type-setting ability
that of reporting or writing, he missed
one life opportunity, for he certainly
pens a very interesting letter. From
what he says of the Home, it must be a
grand institution.
Considerable excitement was cre
ated in the Kalamazoo neighborhood
over some shooting that occured in the

Two shots were fired in at the open door.
One bullet missed ''Dick's head about

hitting the little girl who was sleeping
on a bed striking the bedstead just an
inch above her head. Who the would
be assassin is and the cause of his at

is discovered he will most likely wish he
had never aroused the inhabitants of

regret to hear of his death.
The September number of the
Ladies Home Journal has an interesting
account of Thomas Wiggins (Blind Tom),
who delighted audiences for so many
years with his wonderful playing. It
has been supposed by the public for
several years that Blind Tom was
drowned in the Johnstown flood, but be
is living a quiet, happy life in the coun
try, on the banks of the Shrewsbury
river. Blind Tom is as wonderful a
prodigy as ever. The Home Journal al

taken from Robert Burdette's most re

Robert Bordette was an Iowan, and
western people are proud of his fame.

man as book-keeper in the Ragatz
grocery store, beginning work Monday.
R. B. Kummer came in Sunday
morning from Cheyenne, Wyo, where
he had taken his boy for his health.
Several years ago, the lad was afflicted
with the "grip, from which he never
seemed to fully recover, and his longs
were getting in bad plight. Mr. Kum
mer says that in two days after reaching
Cheyenne, the lad was very decidedly
better, and it is hoped and thought that
in two years residence, he will out-grow
his troubles. The elevation of Chey
enne above sea level is what makes the
climate favorable. Mr. Kummer ex
pects to be here about ten days.
Henry Gass' team got loose from the
hitching post at the store Monday even
ing, and started for home. They went
pretty leisurely, but had not gone far
when they struck a breakneck gait, and
everybody gave them right of way as
rapidly as they could. They made the
turn into the alley on Tenth street, but
when they tried to torn into the house
yard, the tongue of the wagon went
through the corner of the fence, the
neck-yoke was broken in two, and the
horses stopped. No damage but to the
neck-yoke and the fence. A party of
boys had just left the alley-way.
WhOe at Omaha a couple of weeks
ago, little Alta Prince found a pocket
book containing $10 in money, a rail
way ticket and a receipt for a subscrip
tion to a newspaper. After returning
home Mr. Prince wrote to the address
on the receipt, informing the man where
Alta had found the book and returned
the same to the loser, and one day last
week Mies Alta received a solid gold
ring from the gentleman as her reward.
This ahoald be a lesson to every one to
carry a receipt for a. paid Hpsabserip-

The real reason why. the silver, re
publicans were refased a reasonable rep
resentation in the fusion congressional
convention Inst week was through the'
fear that their rotes might turn the
nomination to MaxwelL Could Hobin
son and hie friends have known that his
nomination was assured in spite of silver
republicans they would scarcely have
offered them an affront that drove them
from the convention and from his sup
port in the campaign and at the polls.

--H. S. Bradley, one of Uacle-Sam's
soldiers, serving in the siguaLcorps, is
in the city, arriving Saturday. . It is the
business of their branch of the service
to keep right up to the front with their
lines, so that 'the fighting line can be
supported more effectively by conveying
information back and forth. They can
place their line at the rate of five miles
an hour. .Property in Porto Rico, he
says, is increasing very rapidly in value.
There is no complaint on the part of
regulars in regard to food' and . other
supplies, and Mr. Bradley thinks that if
there has- been anywhere suffering on
account of a lack of supplies, it has
been the fault of the officers in. not mak
ing requisitions.
Charles Pearsall says he" visited
with the recruits at San Francisco
several days before they left for Honolulu.-
The company presented a very
fine appearance in their uniforms, "were
certainly the best drilled men in the
camp, the only ones that were cheered
by the spectators after their maneuvers.
They were a healthy looking lot of men,
and will doubtless make model soldiers
when it comes to actual service, into
which they were anxious to get, and
were doing their best to deserve to go
with the first expedition which they
have since done. In answer to the ques
tion how they were faring, he replied
that when he was there they had fresh
bread, beefsteak, potatoes, tomatoes,
coffee and sugar.
George Smith, the sewing machine
man, has had a somewhat unusual ex
perience. Two years ago, he was called
in a hurry to see his horses, and step-"
ping upon the head of a cat fish, one of
the prongs lodged in his foot. The
wound was probed, but nothihg found.
Off and on since then. he has felt a little
pain there, but not until last week.when
be was assisting at the bell tower, did
the matter come to a crisis. He had
occasion to go up and down the ladder
a good deal, and the fleshy part of his
right foot became very sore, and Sundav
morning he began picking at it. and
finding a point of something, he called
upon Dr. Arnold who examined, found
and extracted a bone about a quarter of
an inch wide and fully an inch long and
was clean and white. The barbs had
kept it from working out.
William Dietnchs is somewhat of a
chicken fancier, that is, he thinks there
is good pay for the investment in capi
tal, time, running expenses, etc He
took us in to show ns his chicken ranch
the other day, and there are several
things about the place worthy of men
tion. From a start of 36 chickens this
spring, he now has 554. He has a neat,
clean room with board floor for the
chickens; four stones of boxes on the
sides for nests; an automatic feed-box
a commendable, cleanly, time and feed
saver; separate places and runs for the
little chicks, safe from rats or other
vermin; a walk up to the roosting place,
etc. Of course, with increased numbers
he needs a larger place for pasture, but
he has gone far enough to know there is
good money in the business. w In
the house he called our attention to his
chimney built from the ground, the flue
nine inches square and the walls six in
ches thick. The flue is always clean,
the soot falling to the bottom, which he
cleans out once a year. Among
the house ornaments there are some su
perior specimens of decorative art done
by Mr. and Mrs. Dietnchs daughters.
Misses Mele and Tilla, that are seldom
excelled by those who have spent years
in learning the decorative business.
