A party of serenaders were out
last night. We didn't hear them,
but it Is reported that they made it
right lively wherever they went,
and at the intersection of Twelfth

and hearty, and seemed to come
from inspired souls.

flitting Around in Prospect
Hill Cemettry. '
It was not long since that the re
port that the house standing at the
northwest corner of Thirteenth
street and Capitol avenue was
haunted, excited considerable curi
osity among the superstitious. This
morning, however, we were told
a reliable story that puts the haunted
house way in the shade. The scene
of this strange and true narrative is
Prospect Hill Cemetery, adjoining
which Mr. H. P. Stanwood, the
well-known sculptor, has a small
dwelling and a marblecutting shop,
in which several hands are em
ployed. On Tuesday night, shortly after
dark,' one of two brothers, who
sleep in the shop, happened to step
out of doors before retiring, and
looking out over the silent city of
the dead, a vision a ghost a "wo
man in white," the Invariable cos
tume of ghosts met his astonished
gaze. The mysterious being was
slowly flitting towards the building,
when he ran in and brought his
brother out to view the stnoige sight.
Both became scared, and hastening'
out of the back door, just as the
ghost .came in the front door and
blew out the light, they ran over to
Mr. Stanwood's residence to inform
him of what had happened.
Mr- Stanwood and the men
went out to see what was the mat
ter, and sure enough they saw be
fore them the ghost, who hit Mr.
St&nwpod. on the back, and asked
where her children was-if they were
buried in that tomb. The" ghost
then flitted into the house, blew out
the light, and entering a bed-room,
so scared the occupant that he jump
ed out of the window and ran
away. One of the two urotliers
mentioned above, having pulled out
his revolver, deliberately took aim
and fired twice at the ghost, but
without effect She then took her
departure into the cemetery? fol
lowed by the men to a certain grave,
where she vanished,
On Wednesday night the myste
rious ghost again made her ap
pearance, and so frightened the two
brothers that they came down town
to sleep during that night, and tlie

Seward, Neb., July 15, '74.
The lively town of Seward has
had a sad day for some of her citi
zens and a sojourner.
Yesterday Messrs. Marshall,Carns
and Hathaway of our city started
by carriage to visit a brother of the
Fraternities, lo convey some needed
substantial in the way of money and
provisions. "When half a mile east
of town they started to cross an
Inferior bridge on Plum Creek,when
the near horse stepped upon a de
fective plank, causing it to break,

ening turn, and there being no
guard, the team jumped from the
bridge some twenty feet to the
stream below, upsetting the car-1
riagc, with the occupants Im

was killed at the' time, yet
all received injuries, and especially
Marshal and Hathaway, the latter
being at this time in a. critical con
dition. A severe bereavement occurred
last evening. A bricklayer from
Lincoln went with some comrades
to the Blue river for a bath, and
not knowing how to swim was
drowned before assistance could
reach him. His body was forwarded
to his family at Lincoln. He leaves
a family of four children; the young
est but a fortnight old.
Business is lively for this time of
the year. Harvest hands are now
wanted to assist in preparing the
heavy crop of wheat in these pans

spoken of. Your correspondent can
not see the feasibility of these annual-
expeditions to the Black Hills coun

Adrenturet of an Itinerant Fen
and Ink Artist. -
A young man, named after one of
America's illustrious presidents, re
cently cot into trouble at Platts
mouth. He follows the occu
pation of a card and ornamental
sign-writer, being a most skillful
penman. Some of his work in
Omaha is evidence of'his skill as an
artist. He went to Plattsmouth and
took several orders for advertising
cards to be put up in the prominent
business places of the citj'. To while
away the evening hours of his stay
in Plattsmouthjhe managed to form
the acquaintance of a girl employed
In a doctor's house. He won her
affections in a short time, anu one
night the doctor came home unex
pectedly, and surprised them.
What the disciple of JEculapius saw
so shocked his modesty, that he at
once led the young man to the front
door, and facilitated his progress
into the street by the application of
boot-leather. Going back into the
house, he ordered the unfortunate
girl to pack up her Saratoga trunk,
and "git" She did so.
Next morning the soandal had
leaked out In some mysterious
manner, and was the town talk.
The itinerant pen-and-ink artist be
came frightened, and immediately
came up to Omaha, without filling
his orders for the display cards.
Wednesday evening ho was ar
rested in this city by Sheriff Burley,
on a telegram from the Sheriff at
Plattsmouth, who charged him
with obtaining money under false
pretenses. Thursday the Platts
mouth Sheriff came up and took
huii Ijack with hini. The young
man soon explained that
he had left town out of
fright, and that he had not had
time to deliver the cards, owing to
his hurried and unexpected depar
ture, and as it appeared he had ob
tained no money for them, as they
were not to be paid for till delivered
and put up, he was discharged. The
afternoon train from Plattsmouth
brought him back to Omaha. He
has'nt a very good opinion of
Elattsiuouth, for fie was a stranger
there and they took him in.
