As is the custom to celebrate the sec
ond Sunday in June, as children's day, in
the M. E. church, last Sunday was devot
ed to the children in the M. E. church of
this city. The church was decorated
with cut and living flowers, the cut flow
ers being made into designs and boquets.
Immediately over the alter was a bell
of evergreen, decorated with different
colored roses, with a clapper of red
roses back of the altar on the wall was
"Love one Another," made of evergreens,
under this was a crown, composed of
evergreen and roses; below the crown,
was "1887" of tho same flowers, on one
side of the crown was a combination an
chor and cross and on the other side a
cross, both were made of roses and ever
green. Immediately under these designs
built up from the lloor for seycral feet
were terraces of living flowers ami ever
green. A vine of Virginia creeper was
hung over the clock, and the windows
were decorated with boquets. Several
canary birds in cages were hung about
Kev. W. B. Alexander preached a very
appropriate sermon in the morning, tak
ing for his text "Remember now thy
creator in the days of thy youth."
The services in the evening consisted
of songs, responsive readings and th
recitation of pieces by the children. In
spite of the mud and rain a very fair at
tendence was had both morning and
Flower Mission Day.
The custom of observing June 9th as
tiower Mission day, prevails throghout the
country. The mission is a very pleasant
Boquets of flowers, with scriptural texts
attached by white ribbon, are carried to
the inmates of the County House and
Jail and also to the sick. Last Thursday
afternoon about 2 o,clock a Heuald re
porter droped around at Rockwood Hall
and found the Y. W. C. T. U. all gathered
their and in a few minutes it was announc
ed that the carriages and band wagon
were waiting at the door, the reporter got
into one of the carriages with some of
the "Y's" that went forth on this mission.
They went first to tho county poor house,
and when about half way out it commenc
ed raining and although it rained most
all the afteuoon it did not seem to damp
en the spirits of the young ladies in the
least. After arriving at the poor farm, they
all gathered in tho hall and sang a few
choice selections and then were led in
pray err by W. B. Alexander of the M. E.
church. Then Mrs. S. A. Davis the Pres.
of the W. C. T. U. addressed the inmates by
giving them an interesting narrative of
the origin of the custom, she said: "Miss
Jennie Casseday of Louisvill, Ky., has
been a helpless invalid for twenty years,
and for eight years she has never been
lifted from her couch. She felt that her
life was useless and she prayed that there
might be unfolded to her some plan by
which she might accomplish something
in the Lord's service. The answer came
in the suggestion that a basket of flowers
which had cheered her might comfort
some other stricken one. So she invited
ladies'to her room and organized the
work." And thu3 the good work has
spread all over the United States, and the
9th day of June has been selected as the
day to visit the poor and afflicted, it be
ing Miss Casseday 's birthday. They then
had responsive reading and then sang
another.peice while the flowers were being
distributed. After which they proceed
ed to the jail in the rain and there they
repeated the same programme.
Hallie K., daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Parmele, died in Plattsmouth on Thurs
day June 9th. She was only seventeen
years of age. She is deeply mourned by
a large circle of strongly attached rela
tives and friends. Her death was sud
den and unexpected to all and even to
herself. She guessed not of the darkness
'till she saw the breaking day. She
caught no glimpse of death's
dark shadows 'till they changed and fled
away. Her friends often remarked that
she seemed shortly before her death to be
looking unusually well. No one ever
dreamed that there were not in store for
her many happy years. Life opened out
before her full of promise. No cloud
seemed to hang over her future. She
was cheerful, contented and calmly joy
ful, gentle, quiet and reserved; her feel
ings were deep and tender. No disap
pointments ruffled her spirits unduly.
She was deeply attached to her parents
and aunt, always dutiful and loving. She
was devotedly fond of her brothers and
sisters and nephews and neices. She spoke
no cross words and was never unkind.
Her greatest delights and sweetest enjoy1
ments were found in the innermost circle
of home. There her- virtues shown
brightest and purest. Yet she enjoyed
greatly the companionship of her young
associates and entered wh keen zest into
their social pleasurts. She delighted in
her stud;3, in her music, painting and
rieedlew ork. She greatly enjoyed her op
portunities for travel. She found a pleas
ure in teaching in the Sablith school
and when at home and health permitted
was usually found in. her place.
In the freshness and vigor of life's
young morning she has passed away. Al
ways in our memories she will remain a
vision of serene brightness. e mourn
her loss, but it is God's will, and he
knows best. After all, grief is only joy

Last Sunday afternoon the south part
of town was thrown into excitement by
the report that a man named Grant Lu
per had stolen his wife's child, and our
reporter started to investigate it. He
found that the child, a girl about 10
months old, had been spirited away by
its father. Mr. Luper refused to divulge
the whereabouts of the child and was ar
rested and charged with murder. Mon
day he succumbed to moral persuasion and
told the facts. He said the child was at
Caldwell, Idaho, with his mother. It
seems that last week he had his wife deed
to him all her property, about $10,000
worth, and then stole the child and sent
it to his mother. It is hard to tell what
his object was as he has since deeded the
property back to his wife and they are
living together as happly as ever, and
Allen Spencer, a brother of Mrs. Luper,
has gone after the child, and happines
reigns supreme once more.

and know that for Dyspepsia, Bilious

An Augusta lumlienuan tells tho following
story of Kain Smith, ono of tho best known
lumbermen ia tho Penobscot region forty
years ago, nnil who know about all there was
to Ikj known of tho Maino forest. Smith
failed nml was left without a cent He dis
appeared soon utter anl for eight months
was not hoard from. Ono day ho nptienml
in Bangor in a threadbare and ragged suit of
clothe, with an old white hat on his head
and a general air of depression. There was
a big land sale that day in which cloven
townships, allJieavily wooded, were sold by
tho state. A pool had ieen formed by a
party of long headed lumbermen to buy the
laud for u sony. Ono of them suggested that
Sam Smith bo invited to join tho number,
but tho rest laughed at tho idea of taking a
street loafer what would bo called a tramp
nowaduys into their counsels.
Tho bidding began, all of tho offers leing
ridiculously low. A smilo went round tho
company as Smith lounged up and bid
slightly above tho others. "Let it go," said
tho pool men ; "he can't iay a dollar." Tho
eleven townships wero accordingly knocked
down to him. But Sam very soon showed
them that ho had tho best of tho joke. From
an inside pocket of his old coat ho pulled out
tho $5,000 required to bo paid down, and
offered to pay more. This placed him on his
feet again. It afterward transpired that
Dave l'ingreo, of Salem, was backing him,
and they realized over $ 1,000,000 on tho lum

townships. Lewigton (ilo.) Journal.

Probably tho most remarkable will over
mode was drawn up by Alderman Ilartman,
of Pittsburg, on Thursday, Feb. 17, 1S.S7.
The testator, Ambrose Itetharge, who is 52
years of ago, after disposing of $10,000 in real
estate, directs as follows :
"I direct that my body bo taken to St.
Michael's church, and, after tho proper re
ligious services aro ierformed, that it bo
given in charge of my family, who will con
vey it to Samson's crematory and thero have
it burned to ashes, tho ashes to bo put in a
small bottle and given in charge of the German
consul at Pittsburg. This gentleman will
then forward my ashes to the consul at New
York, who will give them in charge of tho
captain of the German steamer Elbe, who
will place them securely in his ship for tho
ocean voyage. When at mid ocean I direct
tho captain to request ono of tho passengers
to dress in a seafaring suit and ascend with
my ashes in his hand to tho top of tho top
most must, and, after pronouncing a last
benediction, to extract the cork from tho bot
tle und east its contents to the four winds of
heaven. I direct, also, whilo this ceremony
is being performed, that it bo witnessed by
all passengers on board. After the Elbe has
completed her trip and returned again to
New York, I want a full statement of my
death and the scatters ig of my ashes in mid
ocean published in tho Pittsburg papers, so
that my friends in this city shall know my
burial place." Historical Journal.
A Surprisiujj Improvement.
We are in a position to stato that the
county of Durham will shortly produce a
startling economic improvement in tho mat
ter of fuel combustion and tho heating of
steam boilers. Protection has been obtained
for the invention, and in the course of a short
time we shall be in a iositio)i to lay before
our readers tho practical details. In th
meantime we can only in tbo most general
terms foreshadow tho nature of tho results at
tainable. Tho cubic bulk of fuel that will
henceforth bo required for marine steam en
gines will bo reduced by 70 ier cent., giving
a gain to the extent indicated by that propor
tion to the stowage space for cargo in ocean
going steamships. The timo for raising steam
will be diminished in all steam boilers, station
ary or marine, by at least two-thirds. Tho
cost of fuel consumption will be reduced by
more than one-half, and the production rf
smoke will bo absolutely annihilated. The
process has been made the subject of actual
experimental demonstration. Every test has
been, applied. Tho results we have given
above are tho understated consequences of
experiments made under circumstances the
reverse of favorablo to the invention. Eng
Discoveries at Ancient Sidon.
Only .a few weeks have elapsed since the
world of archaeology was highly interested by
the news of a most important arcbaxlogical
"find" in the neighborhood of the ancient
Sidon. The discovery was made by Dr.
Eddy, an American missionary, who resides at
Saida. In a garden adjacent to tho town he
discovered a shaft, which on being explored
was found to communicate with a rock cut
temple or tomb, containing several sarcophagi
of Graeco-Phcenician work. One of these with
friezes representing warlike combats and
hunting scenes was said by an archaeologist
who examined it to be one of the most mag
nificent specimens of art ever discovered.
The Turks refused to allow photographs to
bo taken or to admit any Franks to the tomb,
and, to the regret of science, news has just
reached this country that this priceless work
of art, together with several statues, have
been broken to pieces, and that heads, arms,
and other fragments are Loing offered for sale
in the bazars. Cor. Manchester Guardian.
Civilizing by General Orders.
The people of Iturbide, Mexico, have been
officially notified that on and after June 5
"all male residents are required to wear pan
taloons." Those gentlemen who neglect to
comply with the order will be fined. Thi3 is
an instance of civilizing by general orders
and is not merely the first move of a "com
bine" between the government and the tailors.
Years ago the Brazilian government issued
an order that no person not wearing a collar
should bo admitted to the horse cars of Rio
Janeiro. The effect was not only to promote
the sale of collars, but to keep a very disa
greeable class out of the care. Boston Tran

A Skillful Workman.
Ed Peck, of Woodstock, Ga., is noted in
those parts for his skill in doing jobs that re
quire delicacy and accuracy. Recently he
mended the winding chain of a watch by
drilling a hole so small that the point of a
needle served as a rivet. So small was the
amount of point used that its absence could
not be detected by one sewing with the needle
afterward. New York Sun.
For 100-Year-Old Ladies.
A Philadelphia firm makes a practice of
giving an excellent lace cap, trimmed with

100th birthday. The latest recipient of the
cap was Mrs. Mary Brunner, of Derry, who
