A gigantic conspiracy to Howl

Henry Cliristiauson, of Chicago,
was the name of a Christian ton
who choked his wife to death, and
on a Salibatli day, too. IIu after-
WirJs tut his own throat, which
was very sensible indeed it saved
someone else n disagreeable job.
The fatherly government of
"Russia has sentenced a woman ni
hilist, Sophie Oueiiborg, to be
hanged. She did not murder any
body, but it was thought she was
going to incite somebody to kill
tlio czar. Therefore because she
merely, perhaps, thought "kill"
she is to be hunged.
The dispute over the llehring
tea fisheries between the United
States and England grows more
serious. Indeed it looks as if we
might be couielled to patch up
the old navy and give the old
mother country another thrashing.
Germany also is liable to fool
mound Uncle Sam's Hulling hole
till she gets hurt.
The attention of our farmers is
culled to the fact that almost every
thing consumed here comes from
abroad, though nature intended
this favored section te produce a
great surplus of bicadsttilbi, fruit,
etc. A new cr.: is dawning, how
ever, and hefoic many bcitsons toll
around most of our food will be
) rod need at home.
Lawyers bury their mistakes in
the supreme court, physicians bury
theirs in the graveyard, but the
printers put theirs in the most
public places imaginable, where
every one can see und criticise
them. And, mistakes or no mis
takes, u printer has more criti
cisms passed on him . than any
other individual, Smart men who
profess to know exactly what
should be printed and what should
not, borrow their neighbor's paper
and turn themselves loose en
lightening the multitude.
An affecting story of destitution
comes over the telegraph from the
northern part of Kansas. Four
years ago John Clifton died and
left his widow with live children
to carry on the light. The year
after the crops failed and the poor
woman was obliged to sell her
stock, head after head, until there
wus none left. This year llnished
the light, and when the recent
blizzard came it found the house
with neither fuel nor food. The
house was four miles from the
nearest neighbor. Finally, no
signs of life lieing visible, neigh
bors broke open the door and found
the dead bodies of the woman and
three of her children, while the
other two were in the last agonies
of death. They had starved to
death. It seems hard that this
should happen in this country
where food is plentiful and neigh
bors are supposed to be kind.
With the commencement of the
year many of our exchanges are J
liroudlv suminiiiL' up the number
of new buildings that have been
erected in their town the past year.
The Nkwh regret a that it cannot
display a column of iigtires show
ing a million dollars spent for the
erection of new buildings in this
city. A Ins I Very few dollars
were blown into monuments to
mark the city's growth. An ad
dition was built to the blacksmith
shop. Numerous houses had now
roots and some had new paint.
Long Creek parties have a (lo.dly
antipathy against the town because
it has the court house, and they
swear by the Legislature tlio town
shall not survive. If they are the
menus of its death and are possess
ed of suflleieiit humanity they will
surely bring over a few shovels
