To have your paper or your magazine
In which you can be most profanely dull
And prolific as a healthy brick machine,
You can write a sonnet to a muddy shoe,
Or a eulogistic epic on a fool,
To a street car horse indite a line or two-i

315 lbs. We understand that they were
fattened on wheat that was unsaleable
on account of it being damaged by the

Marsha Dan Maloney had a bout with
his brother Frank about 9 o'clock last
night on the corner of Court and Second
streets. Dan struck him and knocked a
cigar out of his mouth. Then both
clinched and floundered around in the
mud. They lost their hats and the
marshal deputized a young man named
Davis to assist him in Arresting- his
brother. Davis first duty was to gather
up the bats, and while Dan was re
placing his an his head,' Frank broke
and ran up Court street. Dan and Davis
closely pursued him and rounded him
up in the alley between the school house
fence ' and Kinersly's. Being -closely
pressed, Frank " scaled the fefoee and
sought admission , at Mr. Kinersly's
door. He went in, and after a few .min
utes !Mr. Kinersly ' called to Dan to
-come in. He did so, Davis went away,
and it is probable a reconciliation was
-made, for nothing further has been heard
of it this morning.

Encouraged or reminded by the patent
having expired on' the Bell telephone,
Maier & Benton have connected their
two stores by a telephone of home man
ufacture which works to a charm. They
have have, made receiving tabes from
blocks of wood. Thediaphram is of the
same substance used by theBell tele
phone, and the tube is held to the ear
and mouth' alternately. Instead of a
bell, they are at present using a. tele
graphic key. and sounder to call with!
These are the first merchants in the city
to use a telephone, and their action will
probably become contagions.

Live Stock Market Fairly Active No
Assurance for Higher Wheat Prices.
Friday, Feb. 15 The condition of
trade has not changed materially since
last report. Business continues quiet in
all lines except the provision. Prices
have not changed in anything, unless it
is in sugar, which has advanced of a

Other vegetables are in fair demand at

The egg and poultry market is steady
at 12 for eggs, and poultry at $2.25

cents per roll. . ' '.
The live stock maiket is fairly active.
Prices of stall fed beeves are quoted.
cows $2, steers $2.50 per 100 cw gross
Mutton sheep are freely offered at $2 to
$2.25 per head. The hog market is dull
and good porkers are quoted at $3.20 per
100 pounds live weight. Eastern mar
kets report a stiffening disposition.
Omaha quotes -$5.10 as top figures for
extra good, reports come in oi some
few lots of cattle that are being fed up
for later markets. Present advices in
dicate a slight advance for choice beeves
There are no expectations of a better
market for mutton, as the demand is
short of the supply.
The cereal markets at home and
abroad are dull and -evidence a weak
.tone. A slight advance was reported
dayvor two ago in Chicago and New
York, but European markets were not
affected in the least by the attempt of
the bulls. Keports from". Europe give
out the impression that the outlook for
better averages for 1894 much in excess
of that of 1893. Late Argentine advices
report a yield of double that of 1893,
While foreign. 'crop reports indicate ah
-excess for this year, our own country re
ports a falling off in winter wheat acre
age of 14 per cent lees than 1890, and
some writers give the impression that
America's product will fall short of last
year's. However that may be, the sur
plus now on hand and the depressed
condition of the country, with the favor
able reports from abroad, producers can
have no assurance of 1892 prices. . Julv I
future deliveries are bought below the
cost of production. This may seem pes
simistic, but the facts must be accepted.
Great Calamities to Come, s
A German professor in Vienna is
credited with making predictions which
are highly important if worth anything
at all. - He is alleged to have predicted
that next July or August New "York
City will disappear under a tidal wave
and Florida and California become isl
ands as" the result of a submarine earth
quake ; also, that a little more than five
years latter namely, November 13, 1899,
oar earth will collide with the comet of
1866, the result of which will be "fire
works and darkness."

Mexican Silver Stove Palish causes no
Garrett Fnllerton came up before
Justice Davis last evening for trial for an
assault upon D. J. Cooper. Mr. Cooper
was represented by W. H. Wilson and
Fullertoa by "Judge" Walton. Waiton
presented' a demurrer to have the case
dismissed on the grounds- that the com
plaint was illegally drawn, and second
that the injuries said to be sustained by
plaintiff were not sufficient to be entitled
an assault. The justice's attention was
directed to the statute by Mr. Wilson to
refute the first point and a. glance at
Cooper's face . by the judge himself
knocked out the second point of the de
murrer, and it was accordingly ruled
out. Mr. Cooper, sr., Cyrus Cooper and
John Brookhouse testified for plaintiff
and Fullerton for defendant. . In the
cross examination of Cooper by Walton,
the question arose about which hand he
used to strike Fullerton. "My right
hand," he said. "Don't you ever use
your left hand," inquired Walton. "I
am not paralyzed," said Cooper. Full-
erton's testimony was given in a very
straightforward manner. He ' was ag
grieved on, account of non-payment of
wages due him, and said he secured the
very bad advice of retaining forcible pos
session from a lawyer of this city.
'Who gave you such advice?" inquired
Wilson. "I object," said Walton, and
the gang laughed. His objection was
overruled, and the defendant told where
his office was, but did not knoW the
name. Asked if he could show any in
juries Fullerton jaid no, and being
chaffed about it said, "Well, yes," and
be exhibited a badly Bwollen fist, that
had apparently come in contact with
something. 'Arguments were made by
both lawyer(?)s and the judge finally de
cided on a $30 fine for assault or 15 dayB
in the county jail. The prisoner gave
one despairing glance at his attorney,
whose head was bowed, and then sub
