Mr. Lohmer and wife went out to drive away some cattle, leaving their nine months old child at the door of the house in its cab. What was their surprise, one can imagine, on their return ten minutes later, to find a cow that had been left behind deliberately devouring their babe. Their surprise became hbrror when they discovered that the child was insensible and that both hands and both feet had been eaten off,, and that the cow was then munching the little one's leers and had crushed the bones into silvers. 'Dr. Whitney was hastily summoned and skillfully removed many bones and'fixed the babe up in the best possible manner, without hopes, however, that it would recover. It Is reported still alive, and may possibly live, but of course in a terribly mangled and crippled condition. It is one of the most horrible cases on record. The parents are terribly shocked and cast down over the matter. Brltt Does Not Get a New Road. The controlling board of officials of the Chicago.'Iowa, and Dakota road, known In common phraseology as the "Slippery Elm," has decided upon an improvement in Alden that will put a quietus on the reports that have appeared periodically for several years to the effect that the road would be built northwest to Clarion, Britt, and possibly Jackson. Minn. The company has co'mmenced work for the erection of a substantial round house to replace the temporary one which • has been used since the road suddenly stopped at Alden after its defeat in a legal tussle with the Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Northern. From this action it would seem that the terminus of the road will remain in Alden for some time to come and that all efforts made by the company to run the road on further had been abandoned for the time being at least.

He has no direct course laid out, but will go where and when "the spirit moves," returning home when he gets tired of being away and has no place of more interest to see than home. . Victor Dolliver to Wed. It is announced that the marriage of Victor Brown Dolliver and Miss Augusta Larrabee will take place at Clermont, August 18. Mr. Dolliver is a brother of Congressman J. P.

GfoMlft Performance In the Old Theater at Orange. Of scenery, in the ordinary sense ol the word, there was none at all. What we saw was the real thing. In the opening scene of "CEdipns," the king, coming forward through the royal portal and across the .raised platform in the tear of the stage, did 'literally "enter from the palace" and did "descend the palace steps" to the "public place" where Creon and the priests awaited him. It was a direct reversal of the ordinary effect in the ordinary theater, where the play loses in realism because a current of necessarily appreciated but purposely rejected antagonistic fact un- derruns the conventional illusion and compels us to perceive that the palace is but painted canvas, and even on the largest stage only four or five times as high as the prince. The palace at Orange, towering up as though it would touch the very heavens and obviously of veritable stone, was a most peremptory reality. The fortuitous accessory of the trees growing close beside the stage added to the outdoor effect still another very vivid touch of realism, and this was heightened by the swaying of the branches, and by the gracious motion of the draperies, under the fitful pressure of the strong gusts of wind. Indeed the mistral took a very telling part in the performance. Players less perfect in their art would have been disconcerted by it, but these of the Comedie Francaise were quick to perceive and to utilize its artistic possibilities. In the very midst of the solemn denunciation of CEdipus by Tiresias, the long white beard of the blind prophet suddenly was blown upward so that his face was hidden and his utterance choked by it, and the momentary pause, while he raised his hand slowly, and calmly freed his face from this ohauoe covering, made a dramatic break in his discourse, and added to it a naturalness which vividly intensified its solemn import. In like manner the final entry of CEdipus, coming from the palace after blinding himself, was made thrillingly real. For a moment, as he came upon the stage, the horror which he had wrought upon himself — his ghastly eyesookets, his blood stained face—was visible, and.then a gust .of wind lifted his mantle and flung it about his head so that all was concealed, and an exquisite pity for him was aroused— while he struggled painfully to rid himself of the inoumbrance—by the imposition of this petty annoyance upon his mortal agony of body and of soul.— "The Comedie Franoaise at Orange," by Thomas A.

For pleasure, pure and simple, seven handed euohre clubs may "be cited as models, Tlie game is played with a full pack of cards, and the joker is used. Seven cards are dealt to each player, giving first three and then four and leaving four on the table, This quartet is dubbed "the widow." The player on the left of the dealer makes the first bid of 3, 8, 4, 5, 6 or 7 tricks, naming the suit, the highest bid getting it. The bidding is done in turn. The person who secures the bid then selects three other players— partners — thus pitting four against three. If the bidder wins, be and his partners each count the amount bid, If he fails, he is euchred, and the three opponents $ount each the amount bid. While one can play a quiet, steady game, taking no risks, and holding high cards or the Joker play for a euohre, the spirit of extreme feminine politeness engendered by this fad of the hour requires that a person holding the joker should bid the lirajt, seven, thereby always tatroduo' lag an element of chance in the contest and giving each one more show, Prizes are played for, A certain nunv be* of points gained can be the Wwit Of A given period <?f time, as agreed upon.
