A rather romantic story comes from
Nebraska City. An intelligent and bright
German girl, about twenty years of age,
came to the above town some time ago in
company with a number of German emi
grants, well supplied with money, but
after a while her funds gave out, and she
was compelled to seek refuge in the home
for the friendless of Lincoln, where she
gave birth to a boy which shortly after
wards died. She confided her story to a
lady from whom the account comes. The
old, sad story of love and folly on one
side and the devil cn the other. Her
father, she claims, is a wealthy govern
ment official in Germany, and of a highly
respectable family. She met and loved
a dashing officer of the army and fell a
victim to folly. Her parents sent her
from home and her lover sent her to this
country to hide her shame, promising to
follow and make her his wife. She has
been waiting for six months, but in vain.
She is still waiting, foolishly trusting, his
excuse being that he cannot get the neces
sary permit to leave the country.

"Wednesday night about 12 o'clock,
Village Marshal Patrick Miles was shot
through the body by Jack Marley and
dangerously wounded. Marley, Miles
and some other parties had been drinking
and making considerable noise during
the early psrt of the evening, and as is
natural during such a carouse they went
to the house near the Methodist church,
kept by "Sullivan." Marley had at one
time been "solid" with the young lady
bearing the pugilistic name, but of late
"Sul" has found another whom she pre
fers. This other party was in tho house
when 3Iarley came. The latter began
making breaks with his pistol. "Whether
he intended to shoot anyone or not is a
disputed question. Some who were thero
give it as their opinion that he did. Any
how Marshal Miles evidently thought the
pistol playing had gone far enough, as he
attempted to take it away from Marley.
In tho scuffle the pistol, a 45 cal., was
discharged, the ball entering Miles' side
two or three inches to the left of and
below the navel, and coming out of the
right hip. One of the bystanders had his
pants cut and leg scratched by the bullet
after it had passed through Miles' body.
Tho wounded man-says it was an accident
Others who saw it say it was an accident,
so far, at least, as shooting Miles was
concerned. Marley did not give himself
up to the officers. Evidently he felt that
he was not blameless, as he left town
before morning and has not since been
heard from. Miles lies at the post hospit
al in a precarious condition. Tho doctors
even cannot say whether he will live or
die. Doctors Birhey, Cotter and Ewen

One of Beauregard's old soldiers sent
him a dollar and requested him to send
a lottery ticket which would win a big
prize. He added: "I was always at my
post and never disobeyed orders. I came
out of the war without clothes enough
to wad a shot-gun." The General
answered : "My dear old comrade, I send
you a ticket that I hope will draw a prize,
and beg leave to give you the following
advice: If you stick to the Louisiana
Lottery for four years as faithful as you
did the Southern Confederacy, you will
not have clothes enough to wad a pop

much beer drinking in hot weather affects
the stomach and brain. Undoubtedly,
cool beer is a pleasant thing for tho mo
ment, with the thermometer registering
95 degrees in the shade, but undoubtedly
a heated brain and disease of mind and
body is liable to be tho payment of the
pleasures. This is not temperance, but
physiological talk. Tho police statistics
of all large cities furnish the ground upon
which it is made."

If parents were to encourage the read
ing of newspapers by their children by
taking one or moro of them into tho
family, tbey would soon discover how
much faster their children increased their
stock of knowledge. Books soon becomo
monotonous to the child while a nows
paper is fresli once a week, and is looked
for with as much interest as a promised
present. The home paper is the poor
man's library and the children's fount of
knowledge. Any man can save enough
money in one month to supply his family
with reading matter in the shape of a
newspaper for one year.
Sitting alongside a lady in tho elevated
train the other day she had occasion to
adjust a portion of her dress which was

broke in fragments and disclosed the fact

make some inquires, and I found that

Many of tho public are not aware how
great are tho profits made from directing
tho game of base ball as a business in
some of the cities of the country. For
tho amount of capital invested there is
probably nothing like it in any form of
amusement. The expenses of base ball
are, first, in hiring and filing up the
grounds upon which it is played. ; nest, in
the salaries paid the players; third, in the
traveling expenses of the clubs. None
of these require much preliminary out
lay. Thero must be a guarantee as re
gards some of them, but the game gener
ally pays its way after tho season opens.
It will be singular if somo enterprising
manager outside of those who- have at
present a monopoly of tho cream of the
business does not before long devise a
method of breaking in upon it. For base
ball, rightly managed, may be made more
remunerative than the drama, the concert
hall or the sporting field of any kind.
Boston affords a good example tho pres
ent year of what may be done in this
way. There will be about sixty-threo
games of base ball played in the National
league during the season, of which about
thirty have been played. The attend
ance at them has averaged 4,090 people
This, at'50 cents a ticket, yields consider
ably more than $2,000 a game, for there
are reserved seats, to the amount of 1,200
in number, at 25 and 50 cents each, the
most of which are generally sold, and
there are perquisites of the grounds
which bring in money. It is a low esti
mate to set down the receipts of tho
season at $125,000. Out of this are to be
taken, perhaps $35,000 for salaries of
players, $2,000 for ground expenses and a
considerable sum for the cost of trans
porting the players from one city to an
other. It will be liberal to call this alto
gether $50,000. The profits, therefore,
that the season of five months will re
present will be $75,000.
