No complaints have been re ceived by the board from thu teachers con- crnltiK their assignments. If any of them are dissatisfied they have not made It known. Some of the members of the fire depart ment are Inclined to believe that "old Pat , ' the veteran flre horee found dead In Kid stall the other morning , was not permitted to die a natural death , but believe that ho was poisoned. Considerable feeling has been created among the members of the depart ; incut , who feel that the old horco should have been turned over to them for core after ho was superannuated. A shed stable was fixed up for him lu the rear of the city buildings , and the members of the depart ment oay hlij wants were not always looked otter a carefully OH they might have been. It Is probable , however , that the rumor that he was poisoned will receive au olllclal investigation. Ho had outlived hU useful ness and apparently died a painless death. - C. B.

During the day grapegrowero around the Immediate vi cinity of Council Bluffs hauled and deliv ered at the headquarters 12,000 eight-pound bcakets. All of this fruit was gathered dur ing the day. The entire product of the day's pick was packed Into four earn and chipped wratv/ard. H required 3,000 bankctb to fill each of the cars. The growers con tinued to haul In thcjlr loads until late last night , and when the tired workmen got ready to close the doom of the receiving warehouse there were piled up nearly 3,000 morebackets , The rsults of the shipments last season and the prospects this year have greatly strength ened the determination of the growers to ro- maln In the association and lot no middlemen bandlo the products of their vineyards. The local uurket , upon which they have depended in the past , has already gone to pieces. fTho fruit Is retailing by the banket at lower prices than , wore received In car- 'ilots for the four cars that were sent out yesterday.

The detective oUlccrs of the Council Bluffs police force have never abandoned hope that they would bo able to bring to Justice the murderers , or murderer , of Mrs. Axe , and within the last few days they have given out a little Information concerning clews upon which they arc still working. One clew that they hive been following very closely for several days promises to be productive of results , and may lead to the weaving of strong circumstantial evidence around at least one man. The body of Mrs. Axe was found lying In the weeds by the side of an unused road ono morning last October. The woman was dressed In her best clothing , and had evi dently been making a call somewhere when she was murdered. The wounds about her head showed that she had been beaten to death by blows from a bludgeon or hammer , ' and the surroundings Indicated that the murder had not been committed where the body was found. The woman's son was Hcrlously suspected of the crime and was hold here for sonio time by the officers. The , evidence against him was not strong and he was discharged. Later the grand Jury took the matter up and thoroughly examined It , but not enough evidence was found to Justify an Indictment. The clew on which the olllcers are working now points In an en tirely different direction aud confirms all of the theories entertained by the Omaha police that the woman was killed In Omaha and her body brought across the river and thrown Into the grass , and that her mur derer was a man whom she was attempting to blackmail , The thread which the Council Bluffs om- cerfl are now following was put Into their possession not long ago , and led them to the homo of a woman In the north part of Omaha. It was not without difficulty that this woman was Induced to talk , and a number of visits were made to her before she gave any In formation that was of any value. She was acquainted with Wrs. Axe and her affairs , and know the faccrj and names of many of her vleltoT'S. At oneof the detective's visits she mentioned the name of a former Council Bluffs man. This m.in filled the description of another man who was under suspicion for some time. The Omaha woman told the police that this man had promised to visit MB. : Axe at her homo on the night of the murder , and It Is known that a man an swering his description did vlilt her. With this clew the local police set about finding the ny-.n and succeeded in locating him. When questioned about where he was on that evening and If he had an appointment with Mrs. Axe he admitted that he agreed to see her , but dcciarcd he did not for the reason that he had business In another part of Omaha. He was pressed to give the lo cality where his buslnctM called him and finally named a place In North Omaha. The olllccrw went to tub place , and we'o able to prove conclusively that the man had lied. The acquaintance of the Bluffs ivjllce with the North Omaha woman led to their Intro duction to another , who was also Intimately acquainted with Mrs. Axe and who frequently visited her at her home. She told the officers ; that she had frequently Been this man at the house , and that he was evidently strug- Eling to get out of the woman's power. In this connection the officers place a great deal of Importance upon a remark made by Mrs. Axe shortly before she left her home the night she was killed , when she announced her determination of getting money , "If not In one way , then In another. " The theory Is that this man failed to keep his appoint ment or at least his agreement with MIT. Axe. and the woman went to hla home , cr found him somewhere else , and threatened htm with denunciation unless ho complied with her demands for money , and that the man , driven to desperation by repeated de mands of the same character , murdered her and brought her body to this city In a buggy or else induced her to get Into his buggy and was murdered In some lonely place on the river bottoms The night of the murder was chilly , cloudy and very dark. The weste'n oart of the city would under such clrcum- stancea be deserted. There would be no people driving or walking , and the few who live In the widely separated houses would bo Inside. On that night between 9 and 10 o'clock a man living In the vicinity of Twenty-fourth street eald he saw a buggy containing-a man and a woman going west ward. They were quarreling violently , and the man was threatening her. The general description ho gave of them fitted Mrs. Axe fairly well and the man who Is now under strong suspicion. The detectives assert that they have some proof tbat this man was seen on this side of the river that evening and at the very hour ho claimed to be transacting Important business In North Omaha. Putting all of these circumstances together the officers be- llovo they arc on a warm clew , and will soon develop enough to Justify the arrest of the man. HOl'B FOR AN A KI3I2MI3.\T SOOX.

There will be a novel department In the new congressloual library at Washington when It Is entirely completed and ready for business. This will be a section solely for the blind and wll ! have not'ilng In It but books with raised letters , so that they can Indulge their Intellectual tasteo Just as well as those readers who have two good orbs and have never known what It Is to be de prived of the beauties of nature and much that makes life worth living. The sightless hereafter -will rise up anil ca'.l tbe librarlin blessed , tor he will provide every available means for their comfort and convenience whllo patronizing the library of congress. An attendant will Tie put In charge of the blind department who understands the ways of the darlc-days people and who will see that they have their wants In the literary line supplied as far as possible. Librarian Young states that his Idea on the subject of providing raised letter booky for the blind had originated some time ago , that he had determined to carry It out and that the matter wao progressing so satis factorily nt present that he was certain there would be no dlfllculty In Its completion. There arc a number of volumes with raised letters In the o d library , but owing to the crowded condition existing there It was Im possible to provide suitable means for the ones who wished to consult them. The books were there , but might just as well not have been for the little good they did the people for whom they were Intended. In addition to the books for the blind , .which are In the old place and which have accumulated there ever since the ralsvd letter system was Invented , Mr. Young' wl'l pro vide others , so that practically all literature of.thla kind will be Included In the section of the library set aside for the purpose. Letters have been written to the beads of Institutions for the blind and lists of publica tions obtained. These will be embodied In a cata'ogue , so that at a glance , or rather at a touch , the raided letter contents of the library can be known and whatcv'-r Is wished brought Into requisition. Mr , Young has had the advlco of a number of ycrsons fully competent to give opinions on the matter anil a'ill net on their suggestions , ns well as on what Ideas ho has himself. When the whole Is completed there will be nearly 1 000 volumes , periodicals and other kinds of literature for the sightless. It will not be an uncommon thing , when the plan Is worked out , for visitors In the library to sec men , women and doubtless children engaged In tracing the letters which to the touch of the unskilled would mean nothing but pas-s.ng the lingers over a roush surface , but to the contact readers would open up the undying and soul-refreshing waters of the Pierian spring. \V < > i-l < I-lliTiiId Willing to Si-ttle.

President Mc- Kttilcy surprised the people of Cleveland by his early arrival from Buffalo this morning. Ho became the guest of the people of this city this morning , nnd will remain such until next Wednesday. The reception of the president was not ne elaborate as had been planned. There was no presidential salute fired by the naval reserves from the old revenue cutter Andrew Johnson ; the cannon of steam nnd sail craft did not belch forth In deafening sounds In welcome of the president ; banners and Hags did not flutter ! i ! lu .thp breeze In honor of hla coming. There I was reason for the absence of nil this ceremony which had been planned on an elaborate scale. It was lacking because the presidential party arrived In Cleveland several hours ahead of schedule time , or rather , the time anticipated by these who had planned the local reception. The Commacho which brought the , . , , presi dential party from Buffalo , arrived Inside of Cleveland harbor at 2:30 : o'clock. There It lay at anchor until 7 o'clock , when It steamed Into the Inner harbor and made fast at the dock of the Pennsylvania company. Senator Hatina was somewhat surprised to know that the elaborate preparations had been made for the reception of the president and said ho had advised against It yester day by telegraph , stating there was no certalnlty of the hour of their arrival. Ho asked that the naval reserves and the Tlppc- canoe club bo notllled of the arrival of the Commachc and Invited the newspaper men aboard the yacht. The president's party was scattered about the boat In groups of twos and threes. President and Mrs. McKlnlcy wore midship , looking across the muddy Cuyahoga and conversing with Colonel M. T. Herrlck. The president's appearnaco gave Indication of perfect health. The party repaired to Senator Hanna's residence , where breakfast waa served. It Is probable that a public reception will bo held later In th.o day. HAD A HIJCEPTION' HEADY. The keenest disappointment prevails over the manner In which the president and Senator Ilanna entered Cleveland. The Tlppccanoo club and the naval reserves had planned a most elaborate reception , which included a parade about the down-town streets and a speech In the public square. The hour the Commancho was expected to arrive was 9 a. in. , and the program had been prepared to conform to that time. At 8 o'clock Mayor McKlsson placed his overcoat on his arm and proceeded to the boat land ing. Meanwhile the Tlppccanoo club and the Great Western baud wre marching and countermarching about their headquarters to get Into position. Thp people were gathering In numbero to go to the boat landing. It fell as a distinct shock to all of them to learn that the president had arrived two hours earlier and was already at Wlndemerc. President McKtnJey , was unusually pleasant In his demeanor * He talked of his trip from Buffalo , of the Grand Army of the Republic encampment , which ho pronounced to bo the greatest In history , nnd spoke In the highest terms of the manner In which the people of Buffalo had handled the en campment. He was asKed his Impression coi-fcrnlng prosperity , but replied : "You had better ask business men about that. They can give you better Informa tion than I can. " ' Of his plans for next week the president spoke freely. Ills stay' In Cleveland , he said , would be a quiet one , with rest as the principal thln to be sought. On Wednes day of next week , probably In the morning , the presidential party will leave for Fre mont , O. , where they 'will ' attend the Hayes- Smith wedding In the evening. The follow ing day the president will attend the re union of his old regiment and on Friday will go t/ > the state fair at Columbus. The presi dent's mother will not visit Cleveland dur ing the stay of her son , the latter will make a short trip to Canton , however , after his trip to Columbus. The president will prob ably spend Saturday and Sunday with his mother before returning to Washington. Vice President Hobart and Mrs. Hobart , who went east from Syracuse , will not como to Cleveland. President McKlnlcy decided to spend the afternoon at Mr. Hanna's home. The naval reserves , however , were determined not to be deprived of their presidential salute. The Andrew Johnson accordingly steamed out In the lake off Henna's residence and after firing twenty-one guns returned to the har bor. PLANNED A SURPRISE. As a sort of compensation for the disap pointment of the people who expected to greet the president on his arrival here this evenIng - Ing , It has been arranged to hold a public rsccptlon tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock at the Hollenden hotel. The president and Sena tor Ilanna reg.-et that there should have been cny disappointment. I'llOIIIUITIO.V WHISKY HOTTI.E. A Ma I lieIiliu for Which a 1'atont IN Axkcil.

A i > hark la caught like any other fish , ex cept that the Uckle used , being proportion I ate to the size of the fish , seems tremen deus , The hook Is very heavy , the bend being about like that of the r.urvo of an umbrella . handle. To the long shank of the ' hook Is attached several feet of chain , to prevent the shark from biting the cord. To the chain Is fastened the flsh 11.IP , a stout rope about the clzo of a clothesline nnd very strong. This rope Is long enough to nllow the shark to run away with consid erable line. For bait , anything , almcst , that t ; Is meat can be used If the shark Is hungry , but half n blucfUdi 's commonly used. for. as the old skipper said , "Sharks like good things to eat as well ns any one clix ? . " The beat Idea of sharking can be gained , says n correspondent of the Springfield - field ( Maw. ) Hepubllcan , by following the boat through. Knowing the shark's liking for frrsh bltieflsh , the skipper decided to preface the shark hunt with a little blue- fishing , the best place for the latter lying on the way to the sharking ground. The suggestion was well received , for bluefl-OiIng I ? quite as good sport HH sharking , and more uncertain. Vor the M'er reason the skipper took .some shark t.slt slong , cnn- elating largely of rank old Huh heads which j left n streak of rich odor In the frcfch breeze. , A fish head which Ins boon owl- terlng t for a day or so In August Is not pleasant to contemplate , but the aroma drawo the shark , which seem * able to etui'll as well as eco under water. The blue fishing was successful ; In fact , It was so good that It wes hard to have to leave It , The skipper contested himself with half a doztti of the gamey blucflsh , which the boat gathered In on the way across the bluoflah territory. Those were enough for bait , with enough left over for two or three families' meals. The first three blucflsh that "struck" were lost , and one of them > utlng under the boat lodged the hook eo firmly In the ccnterhoard that the line bad to bo cut and the hook abandoned , which made the skipper and his mate look downcast , for they hate to lose anything overboard , and this was the flrat Ices of the ceasou. However , the hook was recovered later In a peculiar man . ner . , as will be seen. The sharking ground ' reached , the anchor was dropped and the catboat lay toeing while the hooks were baited and preparations made for the recep tion of the big fish. The hooks , when baited , made tempting morsels , calculated to attract any shark In the vicinity. Five or six pounds of flsh were put ODI each hook , most of It nice , fresh blucflsh , In long slices , with the bright , red gills at the end of the hook. The lines had been over hardly two minutes when there was a nibble. The shark was not hooked , but the valuable bait was gone and had to be replenished. Six times that hap pened , and It was the seventh shark that fell a victim to the big hooks. A shark bltea like a minnow cci a largo scale. He takes the bate which Is on the bottom so easily that the fisherman does not feel It. Ho soon feels the line going out slowly , Inch by Inch. The speed Increases , and perhaps after twenty yarda of line have gone out the shark will have bolted the meat and started off- with It. Then Is the time to make a sharp , quick strike , and it he Is hooked all right Is followed by a tremend ously hard pull to get him In , and the serv ices of all the men In the boat are likely to bo required. The flrst two sharks to bite were evidently llttlo fellows , for they did not attempt to holt the hook , though they appropriated a largo part of the bait. The third was a big fellow and seemed solidly hooked. He lot himself be hauled In some yard , ? and then made a rush for the bottom of the boat. He evidently got his nose against the centerboard , for suddenly the hook was freed with n Jerk. The fishermen were surprised to find on the hook the blueflsh hook and line which had been lost two hours bofore. The shark .had dislodged It from the centerboard - board , where It had been fast. The men were moro rejoiced at this than If the shark had been landed. The next two sharks got away after affording considerable exercise and thi- slxth narrowly escaped capture. It took thre/o men to 'haul him up to the surface and the line was carried furiously hero and there In hit ? attempts to frco himself. Just as he reached tha surface bo succeeded and the occupants of the boat had the satisfaction of seeing his great gray and white body , ceem- lugly as largo as a oo\v , shoot swiftly down with a scared switch of the tall. In ten minutes moro the next shark was hooked , attracted , doubtless , by rank old flsh heads that were thrown Into the water. He too'.c the line easily and carried It out gradually till there was none left. Then the strike came and the tug of war followed , The shark made considerable commotion In the water , but he had not the resources of the bluefls-h for making trouble and It was a question merely of the strongest side win ning. Finally the short Iron chain came out of the water , followed by the wicked heat' , of a largo shark , with a foot or so of baited hook sticking out of his mouth. The hook was so fastened that the shark was haulc tin with his back to the boat , which made It hard work to kill him , as the nose Is the vulnerable point. Two blows broke the club which hud been brought for the purpose and the shark wcs as much alive as ever. The mate , at the risk of getting a bite , reached over the snapping flsh and plunged his knife Into Its eldo and finally the shark was sufll- clently subdued to haul up on the narrow deck around the cock-pit. He was ono of the largest landed that day , though not so heavy as some of the others. Ho was over nine feet long and weighed about 300 pounds. The under elde of a eand shark Is dead white ; from bead to tall , and Inside , as far down as you can see , which Is pretty much his whole length when his mouth Is open , thcro "s a snow-whlto cavern , the only color being Ills blood-red gills. The teeth are very sharp snd slender , but hardly strong enough for a .successful attack on a large animal. The man-eaters , which have been rarely caught About Nantuckct , are a very different flsh and are much larger , gamier uud more fe rocious. There are other ways of catching sharks , and If handled right a good , lively ebark will afford some lively sport , A very sports manlike way la to catch him In a dory wUh a blueflah line. The elcmeut of uncertainty enters the problem then , for It Is not sure whether you will capture the shark or vice versa. If you do kill the shark you have plenty of work cut out , and the dory la likely -to be towed a long dUtance. The shark Is played with a long line , and Is al lowed to run freely until he Is tired. Occa sionally there are sportsmen who try shork- 'rig with a rod , and that Is a popular way for taking blucflsh. The great trouble with killing sharkft Is that the carcacsos are of 10 use to anyone. Tlio meat and the hldo ire valueless , and after the fishermen have exhibited their catch at the wharf , all that remains Is to tow the flsh back Into the ocean and let him sink. There used to be an old blacksmith on the wharf who would try out the livers for oil , which had a medic inal value , but he Is now dead , and there Is no use to which the shark can bo put. Soraetlme-a the mouths arc cut out for souve nirs. H Is a good plan to block the Jawa with a big rock when cutting out teeth , for they have a fashion of flying together which lu tough on hands. A catch of another kind has been attract ing attention at Nantucket. It Is an enor mous aunllsh , which cae of the telnern on the Houth side of the Island captured after a hard struggle. The flsh weighs forty-eight rounds and ha < ) been on exhibition since Ito capture. Ono of the most remarkable things about It Is lla evil smell. WOHIC OI < " AFKI 'TIO.V.

AMERICAN FACFO.IY AT CANTON CnntrllmlloitN ( o llic Silver I'rcililrm Ciirlon * Cnrrrticy 1"\- n In Wrot Afrlon Clionii Money. Bomo years ago , when the world's mer cantile clement was beginning to recognize that the universal decline In the bullion price of silver was due to the Immutable laws of supply and demand , and not to statute enact ments , and therefore , was likely to be per . manent , there was n report , writer l\vld A. Wells In Harper's Weekly , that n full | equipment of n mint I. o. , for coinages-had . . been exported from England to China. As the ' Chinese government , however did not j furnish ' Its people With nnvthlug In the nature of i money for facilitating their exchanges , except the rude coin known as "cash" a small disk with a squire hole In the mid- die. composed mnlnty of nti nlloy of copper nml zinc , and which wo * cast In n mould and not coined the purpose for which minting could be needed In China was not apparent , And with eome surmlsca that "Mexican" or "American" dollars of former weight , pat tern , and quality , but of Impaired bullion value , were to he- made and traded off us under former conditions on John Chinaman. tlii- subject passed out of public Interest. 'But ' , be this as It may , ft mint was really manufactured In England , transported to China , and eel up In Canton , where , under the auspices of the local authorities , but under the exeluolvc management of English mechanic * nnd engineers , it has since brcn engaged In coining "cash" of better quality nud design than formerly , and In largo i quantities , for exclusive circulation In the two lower or southern provinces of China. Some dissatisfaction having been expressed , however , by a leading viceroy , Ilu K'un-YI , j that the copper cash struck by the foreign , machinery of the Canton mint was ton j heavy , and apt to tempt counterfeiters to melt It down and co'n ' lighter cash , which i could easily para muster lu the markets , the ! Imperial government at n very recent period : ordered three new additional coluago plants ; j but this time the order was glvcu to the United States , and executed In New Jersey ; ! nnd the plants nrt > now actively operative , either lu or In proximity to Peking , under the Immediate supervision of the emperor , Two of these plants were designed for maki i Ing "cosh" of ordinary brans , or of two- j thirls copper and one-third zinc for UBO , and circulation In the northern provinces of Chlim , and at present srt reported as turn ing out eome 700.000 colno per day , each machine- making 100 per minute. AN AMEHICAN PLANT. j The third coinage plant of American con struction was completely lilted up , If not originally designed , for producing five sizes of fillver coins , the exact counterpart , except In respect to Inscription and design , of the United State ? n-cent , 10-cent , 21ecnt , EO- ccut nnd $1.00 pieces , the last containing exactly < 12t grains , the United States silver standard. The American company which constructed and Is now operating the three new plants was Instructed to copy In Ita product * , as far as the general design was concerned , the pallet ns furnished by the government , ami which were probably made nt the Canton mint. But whether the designs of these coins originated with Chinese artists or In England Is not known. from an artistic point of view the Anicrl- can-Chinese coins arc claimed to be a great Improvement on the original patterns or designs , mere especially In respect to thu Ur.igons1 scales and muscles , and also the lettering of the Inscriptions. For what purpose the actual duplicate coin age of American silver , so far ail size , weight and current bullion value are concerned , lies been entered upon by the Chinese govern ment la not known and Is dlfllcult to con- Jecture. Whatever else may be predicted of the Immense Ignorant and geographically Isolated people of China , nothing can be moro certain than that John Chinaman will never take a piece of silver In trade , or In exchange for service or Indebtedness , for moro than Its bullion worth as pure silver , no matter what stamp his government or some merchant may put upon It. Some ono may , however have persuaded him that things are different among the barbarian's ' who live afar off and do not belong to the Celestial empire. CURHENCY EXPERIENCES IN WEST AFRICA. Any recital of recent currency experiences .would be Imperfect that failed to call at tention to certain anomalous fiscal troubles that have lately befallen the people of one of the negro stales of western Africa , and which have not yet passed Into history to an extent that they merit. An Is well known , the governments of the leading states of Europe , with a view to Increasing their com mercial advantages through the acquirement of new markets , have within a compara tively recent period , greatly Increased their territorial domains and government In nnd over what Is regarded tut uncivilized Africa. What. ha.s been achieved In this respect In "South" nnd "southern" Africa Is well known ; but the general public Is yet In a great degree oblivious to the fact that the French are pushing their territorial occu pation and domain lu the direction of the famous city of Tlmbuctoo and the southern Sahara ; while the English are rapidly oc cupying a vest tract of territory geographic ally known as Nlsrllla , from the circum stance that It Is trnvcrfcd by or la con tiguous to the ancient and once myntcrloua river Niger. As almcst all experience has shown that when civilized and barbarous na tions have been brought Into contact , mutual pcaco and security for commercial Inter course can only be attained by the exhibit or exercise of superior military force on , the part of the former ; and consequently the British occupation and government of Nlgrltla have been necessarily military , with such contingent beneficial results ns the termination of the horrible human-.sacrlilcc1 kingdom' ] of Ashanti'c and Dahomey. Ono of the Nlgrltlan Kingdoms that has moot recently , and after cocrtlderablo light ing , passed under British rule- and European Ideas and enterprise Is that of Nupp , which , although ruled by a barbarous negro king , wan , through n concurrent Arab population , to a considerable ) extent commercial trading through caravans with an Interior , and to whom tbo advent of the English was prob ably not unwelcome. The currency of thl kingdom and Its population was mainly nlavrx ; with , Inferential ! ) ' , slave babies nnd children serving as subsidiary money media. And herein Is Impending a very eerloiifl financial dllllctilty. For as the Hrltlsh gov ernment does not sanction or tolerate slavery and as It Is understood that the new ofllcd'H of the state , known as the "Niger Company , " propose and promise the entire alxilltlon of a previous legal Hiatus In rcvpect to all the Instrumentalities of barbarl m rulu of the "witch iloctow , " human eacrlllccs. human slavery , and the like the Intcrrutlug quen- tlon has naturally arisen , what are the > people of Nupo going to do for money , or rather for currency ? Will a party arise , as In the United States , who will manfully con tend for the maintenance of the "dollar of their fathers ? " Will not some "Nupean' Bryan set forth In fitting languagu the wick edness of the demonetization of the former Nupean currency ?
