W. II. Pool, of Wabash, was in
the city to-day taking in the fair. He
called at the II ekald office and left a
"ten" for subscription. Mr. Pool in
tends to leave this evening for Eight
Mile Grove to visit relatives.
The B. & M. have made a change in
their sections, making Plattsmouth a
section by itself and have put 12 men
on. and are putting the yards in first
class shape. The double track from
here to Oreapolis is in another section
with 8 men.
A petition to Judge Chapman to
adiourn court two days on account of
the fair was not granted, as the docket
is very large and court will extend into
next week and a large number of jury
men live in the west end of the county
and need to get home.
There was a large number in attend
ance at the fair today, especially children.
The schools were clossd and it seemed as
though everybody went. The effects of
the fair could even be seen in the court
room. Tomorrow's program will be
equally as interesting as today's.
Monday afternoon Charley Jean
was loading hay, and after he had got
through he stuck the fork into the ground
intending to jump off of the hay rack,
but he fell and in falling struck the fork
hf.ndle with his side. It was thought
first that a couple of the ribs were brok
en, but after a thorough examination it
wa3 decided that they were not injured,
though the jar used him up enough to
confine him to his room.
Died. Little Nellie Benscoten, aged
two years and six months, died last
Thursday night of typhoid malarial
fever, at the home of her parents in the
northwest part of the city, and was bur
ied Friday afternoon. Nellie had been
sick just one month; her parents had
worked patiently with her hoping she
might recover, but death finally took
their little one from them. In their
bereavement and sorrow they have the
sympathy of their friends and commu
nity. Friday night. Zeil Connors, a Lin
coln special policeman, attempted to ar
rest two burglars and during the struggle
one of them struck the policeman with a
knife, but the blade only penetrated a
large bundle of papers the man had in
his pocket. The officer shot the bur
glar; who struck him through the left
hand. While examining the wounded
man Mr. Conners was knocked down by
the other burglar and the two es
caped. For his fight the mayor appoint
ed Mr. Conners on the regular force.
Last week Mrs. A. N. Sullivan
put some sweet potatoes in the oven of
her gaseline stove to keep them warm
while she was getting supper. She was
called from the room for a little bit, and
when she returned and opened the door
to the oven, the flames shot out some
three or four feet across the room. She
tried to shut off the gasoline, but was un
able to control it, so she had to leave the
room and let it burn, which it did, do
ing no damage except smoking up the
room and giving the family a pretty bad
fright for a little while. The sweet Jpo
tatoes were not hurt . The real cause of
the action of the stove is not known, but
Mrs. Sullivan thinks that the oil in some
way leaked from the burner into the oven
and partially evaporated, and opening
the door gave communication from the
gas to the fire, and of course the result
was a combustion. ' - '
Anothor Infant In Court.
A daughter of Hiram Pierce was walk
g down Main street a few days ago
in company with a Jaily Iricntt ana
her two-year-old sou, when she met her
divorced husband, George Ashburn, who
was permitted to sec and take the child.
Mr. Ashburn refused to return the child
to his mother, and took him to a friend's
named Johnson, who lives on the corner
of Vine and 7th. Mrs. Ashburn, not be
ing able to obtain her child by herself,
sought her father, who had Marshall
Mallick arrest Mr. Ashburn, who staid
with Mallick until the child was found,
but was not confined to jail. The case
was heard before Judge Russell
who continued the case for .'JO
days, and gave the child into the custody
ol its mother for that time.
A Pleasant Evening.
Last week a number of our society
loving folks, procured carriages and
wended thier way to the rural home of
Miss Alice Jean, about two miles Bouth

cial enjoyment and music, and about ten

the company returned to their homes.

In the afternoon yesterday, the case
against Davis and Wilson, charged with
the burglary of Will Warrick's house
was called. The evidence was finished
this morning. The jury was out as we
go to press.
John Burnes this morning plead guilty
to petit larceny. The court instructed
the prosecution the plea was acceptable
as Burnes could not be found guilty of
burglary since Kennedy had been acquitt
ed, and the plea was accepted.
Judge Chapman sentenced criminals as
follows: Henry Shrceder, 10 years; W.
L'Forenian, 3 years; Tom Cavanaugh,
John II. Brady and Henry Smith, 2 years.

Plattsmouth society circles and have ihe
good wishes of their many friends. No
invitations were issued and only a few
intimate friends and relatives were
present at the ceremony.

In last evening's issue of the Herald
we said the men. Murphy and Brown, in
police court yesterday morning plead
guilty to resisting an officer. This was
not the case, however. The charge made
was "disturbing the peace by fighting,"
and to this charge they plead guilty, and
for this their sentence ten days in jail
the last five on bread water, and to pay
the costs which were 7.80 was a pretty
strong one. Those of our readers who
were led to believe from our account of
the trouble, that the men did not receive
their just dues, will please take note
that the charge was only one of disturb
ing the peace, and the officers making
the charge showed their confidence in
their ability to take care of themselves
by not entering a charge of resisting
an officer with deadly weapons, which
would probably haye sent the men on
their way to the penitentiary.

" " 3 41.
Oh, once to soar, a lark or sail, a cloud.
In the eternal azure overspread!
Could ever the world's voices, vain and loud.
Allure again the soul that once had fed
On the tremendous silence; where the tread
Is heard, by ears with finer sense endowed.
Of angels, who the crystal pathways crowd
In unseen myriads, all on mercies sped?
Could ever the transfigured face again
Lose all its rapture? or the soul forget
To cherish, as a charmed amulet.
The words, too worn with using to retain
Their visual virtue? These same feet haye trod
uu)Dhire pavement round the throne of God I

Preparation of the Sardine.
To prepare tho sardine in its perfection
it should be boiled alive in oil, like an old
martyr. If this cannot be done, then it
6hould be cooked as soon after death as
possible. It is alleged against some of
the patent nets that the fish dies at once
in their pockets and its quality is greatly
deteriorated. The manner of cooking is
simple. As soon as possible after the
fish is caught it is dipped in a kettle of
boiling olive oil. Care must be taken
that the oil is not burned or used too
many times over, and that the fish is not
kept in it too long. The implement used
is made of wire, in two parts, something
like a toasting rake, with hinges, the
fishes being laid on one 6ide and the other
being closed over them, keeping them in
place. San Francisco Chronicle.
Time Flies Swiftly.
An old grandma with a small boy
boarded a Gratiot avenue car the other
day, and the collector rang the register
'What's that for?" she asked.
"That's 2 o'clock," answered the boy.
In a minute or two another passenger
got on, and again the register rang.,
"Three o'clock!" exclaimed the old
lady as she bobbed around on her seat.
