At one time the officers under Lord Howe refused to drink his health at their mess, for, though n splendid ad miral, he was not popular in the navy on account of a certain shyness and want of tact with those about him. The chaplain, who was a protege of his lordship, was mortified at this and determined that the officers should drink to Lord Howe. When called upon for a toast one day he said, "Well, gentlemen, I can think of nothing bet ter at this moment than to ask you to drink the first two words of the Third Psalm, for a Scriptural toast for once may be taken from one of my cloth." The toast was drunk. Not one of the officers Indicated by word or look that he was Ignorant of the words alluded to. On referring to the Bible it was founds that the Third Psalm begins, "Lord, how are they Increased?" Worth Her Weight In Buttar. Curious customs still prevail with regard to marlrage. In some parts of Uganda the custom is to offer sis needles and a pack of India rubber for a wife. Some of the Kaffirs sacrifice oxen. The Tartars of Turkestan give the weight of the prospective wife in butter. In Kamchatka the price va ries from one to ten reindeer. Some savages require a certain amount of labor. Among the aborigines it Is said the current rate for a wife is a box of matches, which prompted a Paris contemporary to speculate whether one of the French government boxes would be accepted. Light an a Dark Subject. Caller There's one question I should like to have answered. When a thought flashes across the intellect does It 'ef fect any molecular changes in the cel lular or muscular tissues composing the material substance of the cerebral mass, or does it operate merely in the realm of the spiritual ego, thereby leaving no trace subject to detection or classification in the domain of sub stantiality?

This question whether a word should have its adverbial or its ad jective form seems to me to have little to do with the sense. Now, what ii the difference between talking loud and talking loudly?"

Palaseteer, a former business man of this place, waa greeting some of his HowaUs frieade laat Saturday, having stopped off oa hie way from bis present hoaaa at.Texko. New Mexico, enroute to hia old hoaae at Oreetoo. He tells us that the dry weather ruined most of tbe crops in New Mexico, as well as in parts of Texaa last year, and that as a result there haa been quite a fall in real estate values. Rudolph AUey, a pioneer settler of Maple Creek precinct, departed this life at Schuyler on Tuesday. For a number of'yeara the deceased has been making hia home in that city with one of hia daughters, Mn. M. Becker. For a year paat hia health has been gradually fail-. isg, and tbe grim messenger came not unexpected. Rudolph Abley was a na tive of Germany, in which country be waa born nearly eighty years ago. When a young man he came to America settling in the far south, and for years worked on the boats that plied up and down tbe lower Miviesippi. From there he came to Colfax county in 1870, or ror ty-one years ago, which means that a little more tbandf of bis life was spent within the bordffs or this county. It waa only a few years after he took up hia residence here that his wire was call ed to the better world, and then came the hard years that all tbe old-timers experienced. Through it all he wan both father and mother to his children, a helpful, tender, christian parent to whom no sacrifice was too great if made for the welfare or his loved ones. He was among one or the first men we learn ed to know ae a boy, 'and throughout all the intervening years we have honored and respected him. It haa been said thai an honeat man is tbe noblest work of the Creator such a man was Rudolph Abley. Ue did hia full share in the upbuilding of our commonwealth, waa a good citizen each and every day he lived in it, was a good neighbor, a most steadfast friend, and a model parent. PLATTK CKNTBB From the Sisnal. , Mrs Max Bruckner entered tbe Col umbus hospital Wednesday and expects to submit to an operation in a few days for an ailment which has caused her much trouble for some time. We made mention h few weeks' ago or the critical illness or Mrs. P. F. Doo.ly at her borne in Cheyenne. Word haa sinced reached us that Mrs. Doody's condition is somewhat improved, but that she is not entirely out or danger, and that Mr. Doody is a patient in a sanitarium at that place, suffering from a serious attack of liver trouble and other complications. We sympathize with the good family in there misfor tunes. Surrounded by five or their sons and one daughter, twenty-nine grand child ren and one great grand child, Mr. and Mrs. Christopher Handing celebrated their golden wedding at their home near Oreston last Monday. The wedding vowa were renewed at St. Mary's church during tbe High Nuptial Mass, at 10 o'clock. A large number of people were in attendance at the church during the ceremony. After the services tbe couple repaired to their home for the great cele brationofthe day. All of their rela tives and most intimate friends were present. For some time it had been talked around town that A. G. Parker, tbeU. P. agent here, would quit tbe job unless tbe company would furnish a helper. Monday evening Mr. B. M. Buskirk, from Miller, Neb., arrived and Tuesday morning the business waa turned over to him, Mr. Parker retiring. There is no question about there being more work at tbe Platte Center depot than one man can do and do it right. Mr. Parker has been here over seven years, and has been a faithful servant for the company and haa given satisfaction to tbe public, and they regret that be is compelled to quit. FOR BALD HEADS.

Perhaps no community more care fully and frequently set forth Its er ratic fancy than did tbe early settlers of Xarragausett, IL I., of whom W. B. Weeden tells In "Early Ithode Island." Thefe were so many of one name that the bearer must have a descriptive prefix lest he be lost In a concordant multitude. Mr. Updike cites thirty two Tom Hazards living at one time and thus Illustrates a few: College Tom, because be had been at college. Bedford Tom was bis son and lived at Xew Bedford. Barley Tom, because be boasted how much liarley he raised from an acre; Virginia Tom, because he married a wife there; Lit tle Xeck Tom, from the farm of that name; Nailer Tom. tbe blacksmith; Fiddle Head Tom, an obvious resem blance; Pistol Tom, wounded by an explosion of that arm; Young Pistol Tom. his son; Short Stephen's Tom, the father low, against Loug Stephen's Tom, the father tall; Tailor Tom needs no explanation. The Georges were not so numerous, but they were distinguished as Beach Bird George, of little leys; Shoestring George, an opponent of buckles; Wig George, Dr. George and Governor George. Circulating Libraries. Long before the devolution a young printer in PhilauVlpliiu when In bad taken off bis working apron at uight used to sit poring over his dozen of old volumes by firelight. He soon knew them by heart and hungered for more. But books were costly, and he bad but little money. He had eight or ten oroides, young mun who. like himself, were eager for knowledge; Ranging bis books on a shelf, he invited his friends to do tbe same, that earn of them might have the benefit of them nil. Ben Franklin thus laid the foun dation of the first circulating library In this country. On Pa. "My son." said Harker as In pointed to the Ivy in front of the co;ta-.

Cheerful New Guinea Custem Whieh CauMs Fraqusnt Murders. Everywhere In New Guinea the traveler is continually brought face to face with death, and the natives are devoid of the slightest pity or respect for the dead or dying, although after a death they will often wall aad mourn for a considerable time Murder is an everyday occurrence, and nothing could be worse than the morals of the natives. In fact, they have none. They thieve and lie with a persistence and cunning which are surprising. The Papuans have a cheerful cus tom which demands a life for a life. Should nny one die at the first oppor tunity they kill some one they are not very particular whom to make up for It "While we were at Humbokl bay," says Professor Pratt In the Wide World Magazine, "a Malay died of dropsy. He was the first Malay who had ever come to that part, and the Papuans greatly respected him. "'Very well,' they said, we mast shoot n Malay with our bows aad ar rows to pay for his death.' And soon er or later some innocent person would be killed to square the account, when everybody except, presumably; the victim's friends would be satiafled." Hazing Him.
