Isaac Walker is dm name of ti man who is si chronic wife beater. For about the fiftieth time he was arraigned in police court yesterday morning on a charge of abusing his SDOUSC. Monday lie went home drunk and assaulted her shamefully He was found by one of the neighbors in the interesting business of dragging her around the floor by her hair. When re leased , iiis wife told a pitiful story of tlio struggle she liad had with him and how he had tried to burn her up by setting lire the bed in which she was lying. It was only with tlio greatest difliciilty that she had been able to extinguish the llair.es. Walker was given a brief examination and then held for further trial. It will probably go hard with him when ho la .sentenced , as Judge Stcnbcrg is consti tutionally opposed to wife-boaters. William Ilart. who had been guilty of assaulting W. H.

( Jet a pint with present prices , cut this out and pin them together , and in one year from now compare notes , whether you buy or not , and see if my prediction does not come trun.

Ten lots sold to Carl Sescmann for $500 each will bring $1,000 to $1.000 each to-day , but ho will not take that for them ; .So much for my prediction for "ORCHARD HILL" not quite ono year ago Wo have 200 lots left which wo will sell at $ ; (50 ( to $ ! )00 ) each. Ono year from now they will bring $1,200 to $1,000 each. Even if you do not want to buy send to my oHice and get a plat with prices marked on each lot , and pin this to it for reference one year hence. The question is often asked , "If you are so sure these lots will bo worth so much more in a year why do you sell thorny" Simply be cause tno changing of b-indsand improv ing of lots sold causes the increase in values of the balance , and it is by buy ing and selling property that J make my money. Very reasonable terms given on all property handled by me. 1 will take no property for sale that I cannot honestly recommend to purchasers. Call and examine our lists if yon want to buy. C. K.

Editor I5nn : For the purpose of in fluencing the action of the city council on the proposed change of grade of Leaven- worth street , certain interested parties called a meeting purporting to bo of property owners interested in the grade of saiii street. If it had been .such a meet ing there would have been no objection ; but it was not. There were several parties present who acknowledged that they lived outside the city limits , and many others who have not any property inter ests within a half mile of the street , and ye they controlled the meeting , and on its face made it appear that a majority of the property owners were in favor of the change. For my part 1 think there might bo some little improvement made without serious damage to property. I think that the manner that has been taken to change the grade is wrong. No matter how disinterested in his action an interested party may be lie is not a proper person to get tip and establish a grade. It appears to mo that the bettor way would bo for the property owners in terested to present a petition to the city council for a change , should they desire one ; that the petition should be referred to the city engineer for his opinion as to the desirability of .such change , and his recommendations us to the best grade to be established , and then if his views have the assurance of the committee on .streets and grades , that the grade be adopted regardless of private interests the per sons damaged receiving compensation thereof , aim the persons benolitcd being assessed for said benelits. Under the system which is now being attempted on Leavenworth struct , no ono knows whether the street will bo improved or not , whether the advantages will bo more than oll'set by the expenses , or whether the majority want any change.

At the last session of the leguhUuro in 1885 , in lias lately been brought to mind , there was passed a bill which provided for aid in placing headstones on * the graves of soldiers whose resting places arc unmarked. The bill was supple mentary to ono passed by congress which furnished stones , and makes provision for setting the same , providing the deceased died without leaving sudlcient money to purchase a headstone nnil without friends who were cither able or willing to supply the deficiency. The state law .says that the county commissioners , or supervisors where- the county has township organiza tion , shall appoint a competent person to superintend the erection of stones , who shall serve without payer or conimNsion. The commissioners of Douglas county , it is to bo regretted , have taken no action In the matter , mainly because the matter has escaped their attention , This has not been the case in other localities , where compe tent parties lm\o been appointed to at tend to tlio securing and tlio placing of the .stones. The latter are obtained by requisitions , showing the full name , rank , company , regiment and date death of the soldier. In the cemeteries around Omaha , there are a number of soldiers' giaves which arc unmarked , and the members of the ( r. A.

The season thus far has been so pro lific of venison that the most enthusiastic admirer of that delightful viand has had little objection to find. There has not been a commission house in the city at the doors of which deer , mainly young ones , have not been lying in numbers. This shows that unusual slaughter of these licet animals is being indulged and gives rise to the fear that if it is continued , before long , the deer will disappear as has the bullalo. The Black Hills' papers are crying out against the slaughter and especially against their killing out of season. It is claimed that some protection should bo given this line game , oven during the winter season. This view is largely shared bv sporting men in this section , who know that wanton destruction eventually destroys a great deal of legitimate sport. Licensed Watchmaker for the U.'IV ' Railway Co. C.

JIouCliarlcH Crocker Accumulated JllH Vast -.Millions In Thirty Yours. 1850. 1800. 1680. Nothing. $50.000. $10,000,000. , That is short be.tveet. . Certainly , out what is it ? ( The story of Charles Crocker in petto. Thus the New York World begins an account of this rich man , and continues : Crocker is a native of Now York state. His family wcro intelligent but very poor. lie was originally gitted with natural virility of body , with never failing good nature , with a big heart , generous im pulse and a. strain of push and energy such as made George Law conspicuous among the contractors of the world. Tired of trying to do .something here , Crocker went to California in the early days. Ho was not cut out for a miner ; ho know nothing of refining processes with metals. Ho had no capital with which to embark in any of a thousand and ono speculative schemes laid before the fortunate ones of the golden shore , so he started , in what was then a little town , a thread and needle store , where nil sorts and kinds of feminine necessa ries could bo procured , from the humble bodkin along tlio line of pins , buttons , shoestrings , facings , underwear of every name and description to the more pre tentious garments. In tact , to quote the words of Senator Hugh McDermott , the well known poet and writer , whoso local habitation , though not his name , is coiifmcd to Now Jersey , ho would have been "glad enough to sell out oven thing ho had for a clean $1,500 in taTI. " Crocker's saying habits , the frugality of his wife , always a helpmate , his abstem iousness , brought about their natural re sults , so that when the Judah proposition was made Crocker vyus able to chip in with the rest. The lirst few miles of road were easily built , anil when , in 1802 , Huntington , then in Washington , wired to his partner Stanford , then in Sacra mento , that the bill which had passed comrrcss giving to the builders of the Central Pacilio and the Union Pueilic rail ways , every alternate section of land on their respective lines and $20,000 for every mile of railroad built , was signed by the president and become a law , Stan ford , turning to a well-known resident of San Francisco at the time , said- "There Is the basis of an imperial for tune. " Already a largo number of miles had been built from Sacramento on and into the "imperial fortune" at the rate of $20,000 a mile when the chief parties , the big four , entered into possession. Each gave up his former business to push the. new venture , and to Crocker , who had developed already much executive energy - orgy and driving power , was assigned tlio post of builder. For eight years ho literally lived in his shirtsleeves and overalls. Ho knew no rose , ho had no sleep comparatively , lie cared nothing for homo , nor for lite , nor aught save the prosecution of that great work which , so far as ho thought about it , was to turn into his coffers a large share of the "imperial fortuno" of which his partner spoke , littln thinking ot thn tremendous service ho and his friends were rendering to the world at largo and the people of this country in particular. The two ronili wore rivals. Each started from the Pacific slope. The Central Paeilio .soon , encountered tremendous engineering dillicultics , and instead of building several miles of railroad a day , sometimes as high as eight , as the Union Pacilio people were doing , they were lucky it they built a milo a fort night. Having reached the binn- nut of a mountain it occurred to their bright minds to .skip the valley in tervening between it ami Us fellow , some twenty iniha away , and they did so , rcnchfng then a plateau where they were enabled to bijild eight , ton , twelve milc.s of road a dati , miles which , according to u sort of lujrishittvo codicil , warranted them in dra.wing0,0W : ! ( each , instead of the original1 S'0,0)0 , ( ) , while passengers wcro brought by hlago from the temporary ary terminus on the lop of ono nuuntaiii to the starting point tins .side. As methodical as over , Crocker held on to his share of the bonds , to his proportion tion of the stock , and became , almo.st In the twinkling of an eye , as rich to-day as ho was poor yesterday. Sacramento was no longer largo enough to accommodate the Crockcrlan nxpan o , Ho removed to San Francisco. Ids estimable family ac companying him.
