Run Over by the Cars.
Anton Schuman, who was a tramp was
run over by the cars lust Thursday night
about 9 o'clock. While in an intoxicat
ed condition, deceased attempted to
board an east-bound freight train a short
distance above the switch shanty, and
missing his footing. t)r for other cause,
fell under the wheels. He was found by
the yard men at about 9:30 o'clock and
was eonveyed to the Cottage House on a
stretcher where Dr. T. P. Livingston at
tended him all night. The man's legs
were horribly mangled by the car wheels,

upper third and into the knee joint. The
wounded man never reacted, his pulse
utterly failing to respond to stimulants,
he died Friday morning at 9:15 a. m.
He acknowledged that he was intoxi
cated at the time he tried to board the
train and stated that his father lived on
Oak Creek, eight miles south of Milwau
A Card of Thanks.
Dear Herald: Through you we de
sire to tender our sincere thanks, to the
many friends of South Bend and vicinity
who so ably assisted in caring for and
nursing our dear . departed Cora during
her fatal illness, death and burial.
And especially do we feel grateful to
Mrs. Mm. McAfee and Mr. John T. Evans
whose efforts in behalf of our loved one
must have been super-human. Also to
Mesdames W. D. Hill. Byon Dill, G. W.
Mattison and Mr. Millard Leffler, who so
heroically lemained with us during her
last moments and so nobly performed
the work required at the death-bed.
Dr. Meridith of Ashland (whose untiring
services and medical skill could not con
quer) is also gratefully remembered; also
the many friends of Plattsmouth.
To the mighty ruler of Heaven and
Earth and all that there in is, must they
look for a sufficient reward. The thanks
of those left to mourn the loss of their
dear one are inadequate. Sincerely Yours,
Wm. L. and Jexnie R. Wells.
What a little enthusiasm will do in the
way of increasing a city's population was
evidenced last Thursday at the Opera
House exercises. The speakers were
from Omaha and the first one who orated
upon the present pomp and glory of the
county seat of Douglas county placed
the population at 60,000 or 70,000. Suc
ceeding speakers swelled the number to
90,000 and before the meeting closed one
orator proclaimed the population of
Omaha ta be fully 100,000.
The running teams did nicely.
It was a good adyertisement for th
The test of the water works was in
every way satisfactory.
The Lincoln Journal, Omaha Bee
and Herald wrote up the celebration in
non. F. E. White's speeches in intro
ducing the numerous orators, were
among the most interesting features of
the exercises at the opera house.
. The following mamed persona were

Miss Maddern In the Quaker City.
Miss Minnie Maddern has renewed her
previous success in Caprice at the Wal
nut Street Theatre. Last evening the
house was crowded, and the welcome ex
tended to the charming little actress was
one that must have done her heart good.
She was twice recalled after the fall of
the curtain and enthusiastically applaud
ed. Miss Maddern well deserved this re
ception. She acted conscientiously and
with deep feeling, winning the sympathy
of the audience from the outset.
Her acting and singing are alike good,
and both were fully appreciated by her
audience, which demanded several repe
titions. Her support was excellent, Mr.
J. T. Ilerudon as "Jetro Baxter," and Mr.
William Morris as "Jack Henderson,"
being both worthy of praise.
Two well-known Philadelphia ladies
who occupied the society box at the Wal
nut St. Theatre during Miss Maddern's
performance of "Caprice," were heard to
simultaneously remark as the greatest all
Ingenue's made her appearance: "Oh!
what lovely eyes she has, I'd give half
my life if they were mine, and the other
half for her hair."
Miss Maddern is the Idol of the ladies
and misses every-where. You can see
and hear her at the Waterman Opera
House next Tuesday May 17th.

The Lewiston Sabbath school was f
ganized some three or four weeis r
with James Wilf-v-"0--""-"-'
Mary Allison secretary. Who the remain
ing officers are we have not learned.
The patrons of this school district held
a special meeting some two weeks ag
for the purpose of considering the matter
of building a new school house. As the
meeting was held during our absence, we
can give nothing as to particulars of
what was done. Some pretty warm dis
cussion was had during the meeting.
Quite u number of women turned out and
voted something that never took place
in this district before. Reporter.
Mr. Editor: I Suppoie you begin to
think that I had gone to the land of nod
to seek a wife but I am still watching
the Murray Boom.
Farmers are very buisy planting corn
and looking for the new R. R.; if a man
is seen with a spade around about our
city, he is supposed to be a R. R. man.
Dr. Brindell has opened a new drug
store in this place. nis brother John
Brindell, is now reading medicine. If
Johnny will study hard and get to the
top of the ladder he is all right, for the
bottom is always full in all professions,
but plenty of room at the top.
Mm. Laughrige is on the sick list; also
Mrs. W. E. Latta is in very poor health.
The neighbors all gathered in a few
nights ago and surprised John Edmonds
and family but they seemed to be agree
ably surprised and every body reports a
good time, for that is the kind of time
Johnny always has.
T. W. Faught seems to have a great
deal of business at Edmond's but more
especially at Weeping Water. If T. W.
Eaught is assessor for WeepingjWater, we
would like to know when he was elected
for we don't think he had but one voter
in that district.
Dr. B. F. Brendel made a trip over in
Iowa last Saturday to see a patient, when
he goes again "he intends to go prepared
to wing some ducks; if S. F. Latta
wishes to purchase game he had better
send in his order to the Dr. in time.
There is a path running across James
Walker's corn field from Murray, it leads
southwest, they say it is S. F. Latta's
path; if so, it looks like he is another
assessor elected by one vote.
The old batchelor who started to the
land of nod last winter to seek a wife
and was treed by his own little dog is
hunting dear this spring south of Mur
ray he declares if he fails in capturing
his dear little deer he will try and be as
sessor next time.
The two happiest young men that was
seen in Plattsmouth on the 5th was An
drew Morrow and Glen Rayal, they both
stayed at church all day like good boys
ought to do.
Grief and joy both at one time: A
lady saw a rat trying to catch a little
chicken she walked into the house and
got the gun killed the rat, a chicken and
shot the well-curb all to pieces and kill
ed an apple tree. R oving Boy.
Died: On Wednesday, May ith 1887,
at the residence of Mr. Wesley A. Davis
near Weeping Water Neb., Mr. Jacob D.
Martin of Salem, Iowa. The deceased
had come to Weeping Water only a week
previous to bi3 death, ill with inflamma
tory rheumatism. For a few days he was
thought by his physician to be getting
well again, but was suddenly taken worse
and died within a few hours. He leaves
a little daughter, twenty months old who
will be cared for by Mr. and Mrs. Davis,
who are cousins to the deceased, as are
also S. A. Davis of this city.
The End of the World.
Under the alluring title of "Vonden
Unraelzungen in Weltall," HerrFalb, the
well-known seismologist, has just pub
lished a work on the planetary revelu
tions which pessimists will find pleasant
reading, nerr Falb develops the theory
that the earth, like all the planets in the
solar system, is slowly but surely drawing
nearer to the sun. In the course of time
a collision is inevitable. Meanwhile, the
moon, working out its natural destiny, is
approaching the earth at the alarming
rate of nine feet per century. As it nears
us the tide will gradually change, the sea
will invade the land, climates will
" ange, and the final collision will snuff
2 candle. The sam.i fate, sooner or
zr, awaits the other planets. At last
j sun itself will be extinguished.
. . enty such solar extinctions have been
erved by astronomers already, cheer
'y remarks the author.
