Eell Rapids Times, 8: Wednesday
night lightning struck a stack of grain
belonging to Ed. Morgan, near Brant
Lake, aud set it on tire. There were tive
stacks of barley and oats in the setting
I and three of them were destroyed. Had
it not been that the fire was discovered
at once the whole setting of grain would
have been destroyed.
Chas. Birr, living four miles east of
this city, feels quite proud of a forty acre
oorntkld which be possesses. He thinks
the corn will easily average nine feet
high and the first ear he came to and
plucked as a sample was a tine specimen
over a foot long and already "nicely
formed grains upon it. Evidently it is
going to be a prodigious yield. He has
also a magnificent field of millet which
stands three feet high and is an immense
crop. Suoh crops are not rare in Lake
county this year.
Alton, 111., Daily Republican, 5. Rev
Dr. A.T. Wolff, of Detroit, Mich., form
erly of this city, preached morning and
evening yesterday, for fhis old charge
at the Presbyterian ohurch. His popu
larity and Um kind remembrance
which he is held by our people were at
tested by the crowded houses which
greeted him on both occasions. At the
close of each service hundreds of old
friends and admirers of the elequent or
ator pressed forward to take his hand
and express kindly words of welcome.
He left for Detroit this morning to join
his family.
A section of the state law iu regard to
using steam threshers, reads as follows:
"It shall be unlawful for any person to
use steam threshers in this state
until he shall first enter into a bond with
good and sufficient surety in the sum of
$500 payi.ble to the state, said bond to
be approved by and filed with the clerk
of the circuit court of the county where
he resides, in case he is a resident of the

the state auditor, conditioned to pay all
damages arising from any tire caused by

the train from Lake Preston in the fore
noon. They gave their names as M.
Cunningham and John Belding, and
were lodged in jail until this morning
when they were brought before Justice
Holdridge and fiued 80 each and costs,
in default of which they stand commit
ted to jail for three days. Uncle Dan
Carr of this county became mixed op in
the fracas also and was this morning
fined 85 and costs which he paid.
Sunday observance does uot count for
much with chicken hunters. In spite of
the fact that game is not common prop
erty until next Thursday, many pot
hunters were out yesterday trying to
bag fowl. Success, however, was not
general. Game is not plenty and is
thus accounted for by a Yankton oorre
spondent of the Sioux City Journal
"Hunters who contemplate hunting
chickens in South Dakota after Thurs
day next, when it will be lawful to kill
prairie chickens, will find very little
game this year. Last winter thousands
of birds were trapped and shipped to the
eastern markets. The parent birds
were thus almost annihilated from the
southern counties, notwithstanding the
very stringent laws against this method
of destruction. Game wardens through
out the state are closely watching for
any future infringement of the law, and
the State Game Protective association
will prosecute violators."

KICKED THE PATIENT
Dunning Insane Asylum At
tendants Confess to Shook*
ing Brutality.
IT WAS A COMMON THING,
According to the Testimony,
to Subdue Patients In
That Manner.
CHICAGO, Aug. 13 John Anderson
and George Gough, the Dnnning in
sane asylnm attendants, charged with
having kicked George Pncik, an in
mate, to death, were given a prelimin
ary hearing and held for murder. An
derson made full confession to the po
lice, giving the details of the brutal
assault, which resulted in Puoik's
death. Anderson claims that the man
was violent and that Gough did the
killing in an attempt to subdue the pa
tient. The confession revealed the fact
that violent patients are frequently
badly beaten by the attendants at
Dunning and an investigation will re
suit.

WELLSBORO, Pa., Aug. 12.—Last May

of Chauncey Howell, died from the
effects of poison, suddenly. Detectives
have caused the arrest of Charlotte
Button, alias Mrs. Howell, also a mem
ber of the family, on a charge of poison
ing Miss Knapp, The theory is that
she was jealous. She will also probably
be charged with the murder of How
ell's wife and young sou, who died
mysteriously, presumably from poiBon.
METHODIST MOVING DAY.
Iflnlat«r« o* Illlnoia and Other Matoa
Will Try to AbolWh it.
CHICAGO, Aug. 12.—The Post says:
The Methodist ministers of Illinois and
other states are gravely considering
the question of removing the time limit
appointments. AccorJing to tho
present laws of the church a minister
can remain in one charge only five
years without change. At the general
conference to be held in Cleveland in
1890, a movement will be made to
abolish this limit. Illinois delegates to
this gathering will ba selected
at the Rock River conferenca
in Elgin in September, and the
advocates and opponents of the plan
are working to obtain control of the
delegation. The laymen do not agree
with their pastors in this proposition,
however. They like a change and are
in favor of preserving the time limit.
The bishops are also 6aid to be op
posed to the amendment to the rules
and it is believed that in the end£ the
proposition will be defeated.
CAPTURED NETS.
WUooatla CUM Warden Makea a Haol

MILWAUKEE, Aug. 12.—A special to

nets, he ran down a fishing smack with
several fishermen in it. In attempting
to arrest them a severe altercation took
place. The fishermen escaped by
jumping overboard and swimming to
another fishing boat which came to the
rescue. The boat was taken in tow
and together with three and one half
miles of nets was brought to this city.
The nets, which were valued at about
$400, and were nearly new ones, were
burned.

JUSTICE FIELD'S GUESS.
Dickinson or Llaittay May be N«m«l mm
Joatloe Jaokaon'a Hnceaunr.
BAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 12.— Associate
Justice Stephen J. Field, in speaking
of the successor of the late Justice
Jiw'&son of the supreme court of the
United States said:
"Of tho four gentlemen spoken of,
Postmaster General Wilson, Senator
Lindsay of Kentucky, Don M. Dickin
son of Mil higan, aud Secretary Car
lisle, it is very diflicult for mo to select
the one who will receive the appoint
ment. It Carlisle accepts he Will have
to give up his presidential aspiratious
and of the three Lindsay is lar the
more efficient jurist, although all of
them are capable and would be a credit
to the United States and thrmsjlven.
Don M. Dickinson is a warm personal
friend of the president and so is Wil
son. Therefore under the present
circumstances, it would be a rather
difficult matter to name the man.
Any one would be good, but I \yould
not be surprised to see either Dickinson
or Lindsay receive the appointment, al
though I would not care to venture
that as anything other than a mere
personal opinion."
"When will the appointment take
place?"
•Some time before the second Mon
day in October, and there may be a
special session called to confirm the
president's nomination, as a justice
would not care to sit in the supreme
court of the United States unless his
domination was confirmed. Besides
there are u great many important cases
coming np before the next court, and
it is necessary there be a full attend
ance. There are some important cases
coming up from California, notably the
MKKCHABIT TA1L.OB.
Oakland water trout case aud the
Stanford case."

TOPKKA, Kan., Aug. 12.—This state

who is campaigning some richly bred

son she will have won enough money
to complete her education in Europe.
The name of the young woman is Miss
Anha M. Wilson of Valencia, Shawnee
county. Her ambition is to be an ar
tist, and she has resorted to her present
novel means to secure the necessary
funds, having the horses as a remain*
der of a once vast herd of her father.
She has named her horses Valencia
and Ding and raced them at the re
cently ended meetings at Holtou and
Leavenworth, Kan., with success.
"Oh, I never make a bet," said Miss
Wilson in reply to a question. "I am
satisfied with the purses the horses
win."
"I intend following the races through
Kansas and Missouri," said Miss Wil
son, "till late in the fall, and about
December 1 I will sail for England to
resume my studies. That is, of course,
providing Valencia and Ding^. JWJ
horses, wfh'a sufficient sum."
