Tho vicinity of Urn county Jallwa glvii a,
lurid huu Innt Monday by numerous red ling
and cards warning the public to beware of
smallpox. A prisoner named Krnnk Ken
nedy, who was awaiting trlnl for burglary,
had txtcii stricken with an nlliuetit resemb
ling tno (trend epidemic on Sunday. One
physician wan called and pronounced It

ofllccr, jirobably with tho wish ait father to
the thought, concluded that the prisoner h'ld
rubbed a drug upon hi body to product)
cruptlotiM Hlmllar to those In smallpox, hoping
thereby to his HlKrty. Howover,
precautionary steps wore taken at onco to
prevent contagion and tho altll:Ud prisoner
was removed to sequestered quarters. Tho
wisdom of this precaution was soon deinon
straled. Another prisoner wax found to Ih
afllicted tho next day, and lioth cases
were discovered to Ik) nothing else than small
Ilarely has It occurred within thu memory
of the living that doubts are not expressed at
the discovery of thu first case of smallpox in
a community, and seldom is It that those
doubts aro well founded. Heldom U It thu
caso that physicians agree as to tho genuine
ness of tho disease uiton discovery There
appears to be a general determination to
brand nothing assmallK)x until it has proven
its identity beyond tho jiosslbillty of a doubt
and can Ihj disputed no longer. It generally
takes one or moru deaths to settlu Its Iden
tity. Why this is tho casu is almost inexpli
cable. Perhaps because, tho oplo of a city
deplore publicity of that sort. They think it
will hurt the city in a business way. llu the
cause what it may it is unwise, uimI more
than unwire, to refuse to recognize this epi
demic when it afflicts us with its deplorable
visitations. Anything that resemble small
pox should bo promptly recognized and quar
antined without thought of financial coiish
quences. An effort to deny its existence is
likely to lead to exposuies ami but multiply
its direful consequences. Instances have
been known wherein thodsubtsof a physi
cian as to the genuineness of a case of small
pox have led to great fatality.
Down in tho neighboring city of Plaits
niouth some ten years ago a suspicious disease
broke out in the family of a German tailor
who had a residence back of his shop on the
main street. Several reputable physi
cians, among them the late lamented
Dr. II. H. Livingston of that place, pro
nounced it a case of smallKx. Dr. U. H.
Doggo, once notorious in Lincoln, was then
located at 1'latUmouth. He declared with u
persistence that should have been born of
more correct Judgment that the case was
not one of smallpox, but what he termed
"wasser-pockeii," which translated from his
German meant water-ox. Htraugu to suy,
as in many similar instances, thu people, took
tho most hopeful view of it and believed it
"wusser-pocken," said to be an ailment of
moderate virulence. Before they discovered
that their confidence had been misplaced
hundreds had been exposed. The result was
soon painfully apparent iu an overilowiug
pest house, a depleted city treasury, a ruined
city commercially and a score of fresh
crowned graves in the cemetery. Twenty
families remember Dr. Doggo to this day
along with tho loved ones laid away without
the comforts of their ministrations at the
deathbeds, and the city of Plattsmouth never
recoveiedtho wonderful thrift that whs in
terrupted by a doubt that led to calamity.
There was a costly lesson learned that awful
summer in Plattsmouth. When wu find a
case of smallpox let us admit at once that it
is smallox and not only avoid but prevent
exposure. When anything looks like small
pox would it not be better to believe it
smallpox than te encourage risk I The erior
will then be on the safe side.
Meantime Jailor Langdon and his family
are now confined at their homo In the close
quartered jail and their friends can but shud
der at their proximity to the infected corri
dor. And the result upon the score of pris
oners it is painful to contemplate. Tho jail
is so constructed that the Jailor's family
must lie brought more or less in contact
with prisoners and attendants, and possesses
none of th conveniences that might be ex
jiected in such hii edifice doing service for
such a populous and wealthy county as this.
It will doubtless bo gratifying to the friends
of W. H. Irvine, now confined for the killing
of C. E. Montgomery, to remember that he
Is quartered In a room entirely separate from
the jail projier, but his proximity to llic lat
ter but the know ledlTe of his contact with
attendants will hardly give his friends much
Tho people of Lincoln aro to bo congratu
lated upon the certainty of a great utti action
during fair week outside of the many nttrac
tlonsnf the fair itself. "Tho Last Days of
Pompeii" at Lincoln park will bring to Lin
coln during the ten days for which it has
been secured probably as many people as will
the fair itself, thus doubling thu Alton lance.
It has pi om u a drawing card of wondeiful
potency wherever it has been produced, and
the prospects aro that with fair weather and
the laln-maker successfully muzzled or sub
sidized, it will prove equally advantageous
for Lincoln, It Is claimed by thoso who
have witnessed it to bo tho most stUondous
aim inugnltlcmt speclauilur effect ever pro
duced, ami its immense cost, some, herein
the neighborhood of '.'0,010, will probably
not be riiient. eu-n though the public
spirited pet pie of Lincoln may have to stand
a piorortlon of it iu the way of guarantees.
The ugly disturbance among tho elect out
at University Place has progressed one step
to a culmlimtlon, and if the first step is Indi
cative of the final result it augurs ill for
Chancellor Crelghton's enemies. Dr. J. L.
Uieene, tho chancellor's ardent friend and
champion, has been acquitted of thu charge
of plain lying. Iu ah Interview published
noma time since Dr. Greene contended that
tho chancellor was being ierrcutd for per
sonal spite, nnd gave a few reason Mr thu
personal spite. Chief among tho chancellor's
enemies was He v.. J. H. W, Dean of Howard,
and Dr. Greene 'claimed that ho hud some
grounds for orsoual spite and specllled what
he believed they were. Dean tiled charge
against him at onco for lying and wanted
him fired from the church. Tho trial at Unl
verslty Place during tho past week doveloKl
u woeful lack of that filial affection and
charity that aro ever assumed to Ihj tho at
tribute of the Christian. During thu two
days of tho Inquiry unmistakable evidences
of very bad blood went shown by Home of thu
ministerial exemplars and lay brethren.
And In thu end it took tho Jury of lay breth
ren but llvo minutes to acquit tho doctor. It
I generally accepted as an Indication that
Chancellor Crelghton will prevail against hi
persistent accuser. .Meantime ho has brought
suit In thu court against his accusers tor
$20,000 damages he claims to have sustained
by thu charges, and if they aro not proven
against him It will doubtless go hard with
tho zealous gentlemen who have proclaimed
The H)llceiueu's picnic at Lincoln park
last Wednesday was an eminently successful
affair. Tho program therefor published In
advauco was Imperfectly carried out, butthe
enjoyment was prolxibly as general as if it
had been, and not one member of tut) rorco
was found in tho capacity of a citizen net-ding
attention from himself in tho capacity of
an officer. Tho proceeds of the picnic must
have netted a handsome figure, which, it is
rumored, is to go to thu payment ot thu at

cessful litigants In thu excise board muddle

The return of Hon. W. J. Bryan from
Washington, which occurred last Wednus
day, may. bo regarded as ,tho signal of tho
speedy inauguration of a spirited congres
sional canvass. Mr. Bryan lias worn of dur
ing his oflicial career iu tho national capital,
much of tho boyish geniality that was his in
the former campaign, Contact with public
dutiox of grave luiKrtaucH havu Imparted
an air of gravity and slight reserve to his de
meanor. Ho has fallen heir to the sterner
characteristics of men In public life. His
friends leullzo that ho has a hard fight before
him if he wins a re-election. Judge Field
has a record, also, as a winner and tho dis
trict Is naturally largely republican. The
indications are that Biyan will receive a
heavy vote from the people's party, but it
remains to be seen whether or not It will lie
sufllcieiitly heavy to return him to congiess.

The chances are that Hon. Frank Ireland
of Nebraska City will not Ihj in tho race for
the gubernatorial nomination on the demo
cratic ticket. Ho is more than likely, how
ever, to go after the nomination for lieuten
ant governor, iu which he shows undoubted
wisdom. With Shrader of Logan as the
leoplefft party opponent and with tho repub
lican candidate hamperod by tho reflection
that he is taken second-choice because of the
lack of tho required term of citizenship on
the part of Ilov. J. O. Tate, ho doubtless
thinks the trip to the lieutenancy is much thu
easier and surer. And then, in case Van
Wyck Is elected governor and nn independ
ent legislature makes him United States
senator, Mr. Ireland, if elected, will llud
himself strictly In it as governor. He is said
to have received overtures from others than
democrats to accept the nomination for lieu
tenant governor, and is reported tolsa closely
weighing tho probabilities of the camgalgii.

and it may Ikj said every other year, for con

such an event occurs the necessity of nn au

for thu presidency, little was said or written
of Mrs. Harrison, notwithstanding tier bus
baud had held many prominent positions In
civil nnd military life, but since that event
the press has In-en Insatiable lu Its wigfrnes
to publish everything they could learn of
her. That Mrs. Harrison has Ihvii a devoted
wife and mother theru Is not tho slightest
doubt. Hho has Wen earnest, conscientious
and faithful lu thu crfornmuco of the duties
of her busy life, furthering all movements In
thu Interest of Christianity and education
within her -Hiwrr. As thu wlfuof a young
lawyer she was never found wanting. When
her husband laid down hi profession of law

and courage accepted thu unavoidable, ami

Hlie undertook the charge of their home

of domestic economy, conducted affairs at
homo successfully. His promotion lu thu
service brought her a rich reward for her pa
tlenco and devotion, and after his return,
mid the people weru ready to multiply his
honors, and called him to tho highest honors
of his state, she was etpial to overy position,
discharging Its duties with the same modest,
sensible anil dlgullled grace that hail char
acterized her In tho quiet life of tho wife of a
private citizen.
Iunumeiaho instances might bo told of
her generous heart ami U'lievolcnt deeds.
For years thu writer was associated with her
