A Priest Arrested in M.exicft.

day Iev. Futher Lorcno Maurol. "
Brownsville priest, came '"" . .
. , 1 . j this side of
the- river to - , . . T1 ,
. celebrate mass. He rolled
..is black cassock up about his waist and
attracted no attention until on his retrn
he stepped in the ferry skiff, and let his
cassock fall, when a vigilant policeman
pounced on him and arrested him for an
infraction of the Constitution of 1857 and
the reform laws, which makes it a severe
offense for a priest to appear in the streets
in his robes. Th reverend father was
carried back to the city and jailed, but
late in the afternoon, through the influ
ence of a number of prominent ladies
and gentlemen, was released, Dr. Diaz
Gutierrez responding for him, and today
a fine of $ 25 was imposed and paid. The
affair has created quite a ripple of excite
ment on both sides of the river.
Union in Brief.
Here are a few items from union once
more. We don't come very often but
give lots of news when we d cme.
Farmers are very busy plowing corn

pied by a Dr. Thomas as a drug store.

A GAY DECEIVER'S PLEDGE.
Charles Olsen Skipped Witnin a
Half Hour After Bolng Wedded.
The bastardy case brought up against
Charles Olsen commenced before Judge
Stiles May the 25th, culminating "June
flth by the parties appearing before his
honor, L. C. Stiles, Esq., with license in
hand anil asking to be joined in wedlock.
The ceremony was performed in the
Judge's latest and most approved Htylr,
in the presence of several ladies and gen
tlemen, and the bride and groom depart
ed seemingly happy. But alas ! the de
ception of unkind and unfeal ng mortals
cannot alwmvs be accounted for.
No sooner had the wedded pair left
the sanctimonious bar of justice than the
hard-hearted groom tore himself away
from her whom he had first allured and
ruined, and that two after ouly a half
hour before he had solemnly promised,
in the presence of a brother, frienda and
witnesses, to take her for hu lawful,
Wedded Wife, to love, cherish, protect
hud care for her In sickness and in health,
as long as they both should live. The
perfidy of a gay deceiver, a rakish, rap
ish, ldstful, carnal wretch, one whose
heart is hardened against his Creator and
his brother man, should be punished to
ths fullest extent of the law, and h& ie
kept within the prUou walls until his
heart ia softened and his carnal natuie
properly subdued. It is a sad thought
for the rising generation of girls to poiir
der upon. Look out for the silver
tongued gay deceiver.
Giieknwoop, June 13. Special to the
IIeiiai.p. Ve-terday afternoon about
2:30, a very sad drowning accident oc
curred at this place. A young man by
the name of Henry Ewing had gone in
swimming in Salt Creek, about one-half
mile west the of town and was drowned.
He is reported as being VCi'Y ndus
trious iiftd epr;;en"a siirji of a young man
and iav(eh respected by all who knew
him. His many friends were horror
stricken when they heard of his terribly
sad fate and the whole community is very
much grieved over the sad affair. Not
being personally acquaintey with liiir-,
we can not give ns poo1 wi. nvcovnt of f

The Collapse of the Morning Mail.
The time the old Morning Mail went
to the wall, we think it was some time in
January, 1886, it was a cold winters
night, the air was full of snow, when the
climax was reached. Mr. W. L. Brown
was then proprietor of the paper with
Joe Fairfield as managing editor in
charge. Mr. Brown had come down from
Lincoln where he had removed. He came
down on the evening train, and was met
by Mr. Fairfield who, in his usual blank
manner, says, " Brown, them fellers haye
quit work again." Says Brown, '-What
is the matter is there no copy on the hook ?"
"Matter! t 1," says Joe, " the- hook is
full of matter the matter is the d d
fools have struck, and wont work any
longer without money, and I can't make
collections enough to pay them or my
self." And so. that winter's night, an
other bright light went out, never to
brighten the pathway of republicanism
The above shows conclusively that the
only way a newspaper can be run success
fully, is for the patrons to pay up, and
we give this as a gentle hint to those who
are in our debt.
County Seat Question.
The unterified Weeping Water anarch
ists are again urging the question of the
county seat removal. They have we un
derstand, already commenced to get up
their petition to present to the commis
sioners, in order to get it on wheels; and
then will come the election, and it will
tako two thirds of the voters of Cass
county in favor of the same to remove it.
Our poor deluded brethern of the village
forget that Plattsniouth City proper polls
one forth of the entire vote of the coun
ty, and with the other help the city cau
secure, the movement, as all others have,
will fall to the ground a failure.

Dress the Hair
With Ayer's Hair Vigor. Its cleanli
ness, beneficial effects on the sealp, and
lasting perfume commend it for mii
versaf toilet use. It keeps the hair soft
and silken, preserves its color, prevents it
from falling, and, if the hair has become
weak or thin, promotes a new growth.
"To restore the original color of my
hair, which bad turned prematurely
grav, I used Aver's Hair Vifior with en
tire" success. I cheerfully testify to the
of this preparation." Mrs. F. H. David
sou, Alexandria, La.
I was afflicted some three years with
scalp disease. My hair was falling out
and what remained turned gray. I was
induced to try Ayer's Hair Igor, and
in a few weeks the disease in my sealp
disappeared and my hair resumed its
original color." ( Rev. ) S. S. Sims,
Pastor U. B. Church, St. Berniee, Ind.
" A few years ao I suffered the entire

Aver's Hair Vigor, an I I began to use it.
The result was all I could have desired.

His colt-s Little L'uby, 2:271, and J. W. Jluey, 2:2 1 , with more to
follow in the charmed circle this summer, is certainly a o-reat showing,
and affords the public ii this vicinity a grand opportunity to get
valuable horses at low price?. His service otSJo.OO, with 2.00 added
if not paid till after foaling, or s20 to insure colt to stand, is only the
price of a good ordinary horse, whiie horses of Siiaki k Lov's blood
Hues receive from 100.00 to 300.00 in other localities. Horses of
this kind, if not wanted for sporting purposes, can do more general
work on a farm, on account of their extra nerve power, than unwealdy
draft horses, and can go to town or to meeting in one half the time,
and time is money. Owners of fine mares have a rare chance now for
one ot the cheapest horses in the United States. Embrace the oppor-unity.
