Tho Ccnoral Terry Hits a Pier and
Coes Down.
Omaha, Jiiih; 11. Twelve years ago
'this Fifth infantry, regular troops, were
stationed at Fort Leavenworth. That
was during tlio Custer campaign in the
lilack Mills ugain.-t "Sitting Hull'' und
his warriors, unil the regiment, ly orders,
whs forced to the front. They went by
the same f.teaini is in which they landed
yesterday for a few hours in Omaha to
"tdock up" with provisions.
A limit si x o'clock the usual scrunching
of whistles were heard, and soon alter
the tit cm wheelers Helena and (General
Terry lied up at the foot of Douglas St
1 7 sun-liurned frontier soldiers, includ
ing oflieers and musicians, were on hoard
of the two steamers accompanied by the
wives and daughters of the oliieers.
When tie: two boats landed it was evi
dent that the men desired to land, but it
was out of the (piestion at that lime, but
later providence interfered, and their
wishes were gratified. Oflieers from the
headquarters who were on hand to meet
the new comers were informed of the ar
rival by Lieutenant J. M. T. I'artcllo,
who was the first to come ashore. Ho
stated that the party had, through the
means of a field glass, sighted a flag at
half mast and it occurred to them that
(leni'iid Sheridan had died. When the
lieutenant was informed that the emblem
of death was in respect to the memory of
a departed Fnion Pacific railroad ofiiciul,
and was displayed from the quarters of
the road ins "ad of the government, Par
tello by voice communicated to the com
mander Colonel (Jeorge Gibson, who in
turn notified his command, who immedi
ately sent up a cheer of thanks which was
re-echoed by the throng ashore who had
ga.iercd. The band struck up a lively,
inspiring air, and as tho sun set in the
west the hawsers were cut and the boats
floated towards Kansas City.
They were A destined to reach that
village on time, however, and it will be
many days before the General Terry again
The Helena ran under the Union Paci
fic bridge all right, but when the General
Terry was passing under the second span
the strong current swung her sidewise
against one of the old piers standing in
the river, tearing a hole in her side some
eight rei t long and six feet high, which
filled In r with water so that she sank in
about seven minutes from the time she
struck. As soon as the accident occurred
Pilot Mackey signalled his engineer to
'go ahead" and ran her within a few feet
of the shore, so that she grounded, as it
w ere, in about eight feet of water.
At the time of the accident all was in
confusion, the ladies aud children scream
ing while the men was for the time panic
stricken and it was with difliculty that a
few of the oflieers who retained their
wonted coolness could control them. As
soon as the boat grounded the gangplank
was thrown out and the Helena notified
by whistle that the General Terry was in
distress. She steamed back and in the
meantime the latter boat had been tied to
the shore and all hands at once set to
unload her. The ladies were taken to
the hotels and made comfortable.
The loss is estimated at $2",000, of
which a great portion consists of proper
ty belonging to the oflieers and families.
Trunks containing elegant dresses and
jewel boxes of silverware, etc., were lost
while all the furniture was greatly dam
aged. On board the sunken steamer
were companies D, F, G and A. The
four compauies and the band number
about 475 men, and are destined to points
in Texas.
The Rat-sfication Meeting-
Saturday the democrats distributed
hand bills over the city for a grand rat-i-fication
meeting of the nomination of
Cleveland and Thnrman, to be held in
Ivockwood hall, Saturday eyening.
Promptly at eight o'clock the 13. fc M.
band inarched down the street and then
marched up again, and arrived at the
hall with four men in the procession. The
muting was called to order by selecting
Mr. F. F. White as chairman.
Mr. Wright, of Glenwood, la., was in
troduced and made a set speech of an
hour, after which Mr. Mat. Goring fol
lowed, using almost the same time.
The meeting was not a howling success
as a ratification. There were probably
123 men in the hall, a large sprinkling of
prominent republicans and about a dozen
ladies, the latter leaving when the meet
ing was about half through. C. W,
Sherman, J. G. Gilmorc with the chair
man occupied the platform. The first
speaker stated most emphatically that
the democratic party was a party of free
trade, andthe second speaker that
the platform did not mean absolute free
trade but a gent-e reduction. As usual
the democrats had to straddle.
The lull was handsomely decorated
with bandanas everywhere and with two
pictures of Cleveland almost hid with
bandanas constituted the dt rorations.
Tim speakers as usual in their theme of
discour-f, both dwilt on the fact that the
tail would win regardless of the l ead.

UoarcJ of Trade Resolutions.
The following resolutions were passed
by the Hoard of Trade nt a meeting held
by them a short time ago condemning the
Journal, which khous how high that
celebrated organ of journalism is held in
the estimation of the Foard of Trade anil
citizens generally :
Whkkkas, Observation since the exis
tence of the Plattsmouth Journal has
convinced us of its hearing 11 strong com
munistic tint, and
W 11 Kit k as. Said Journal has grossly
misrepresented the members of the Platts
mouth Hoard of Trade and the citizens
in general, by assuming in its columns to
speak the sentiments of the people of the
city in regard to the late unpleasantness
with the 15. it M. R. H. Co. and a portion
of their employes, and
Wiikkkam, We were not called upon by
either of the two parties in this conflict,
therefore be it
JirS'tfrrif, that we condem the course
pursued by said Journal in its various
kinds of uncalled for abuses against the
B. 6c M. It. II. .'o. And be it further
lli solncd. That said Journal is hereby
requested to discontinue the misrepresen
tations of the people of this community.
Rtsolceif, That a copy of these resolu
tions be ordered published in the Platts
mouth Daily Hf.hai.h.
The above resolutions were introduced
at the regular meet ing of the Plattsmouth
Board of Trade, May S. 1S8S, ami passed
unanimously nt the regular meeting, June
r, 1888.
We clip the following from the Lin
coln Journal which will no doubt prove
of valuable interest to some of our readers:
"The discussion eonceminx the tariff ques
tion is becoming quite romantic, and some
of the arguments are as interesting as de
tective stories. The following, from a
democratic paper, describing the return
to his cottage of a down trodden labor
ing man, is a sample: "lie carries in his
hand a tin dinner pail taxed 4. per cent,
and greets his wife with a cherry smile as
she looks at him through the window
pane taxed (0 per cent, from which slu'
has drawn aside the curtains taxed 40 per
cent." The story might be continued in
definitely. He strokes the head of the
family dog which is taxed 100 per cent,
and sees that the chain which holds it,
and which is taxed 40 per cent, is secure
ly fastened. Then he says to his wife in
a voice which is taxed (71 per cent: "Is
the supper which is taxed SO per cent
ready She answers with a smile taxed
SO per cent and flashes out some cod fish
balls taxed 7(5 percent. "How," he asks,
"are the children who are taxed 93 per
cent?" The wife answers in a low, husky
whisper, taxed 48 per cent: "Mr Doolit
tle, who is taxed 3 per cent, will propose
marriage this evening to our daughter
Jennie, who is taxed 7 per cent." The
night wears on. Mr. Doolittle arrives.
He takes Jennie's beautiful white hand
in his, and as the moon, which is taxed
50 per cent, sheds its silvery beams upon
her golden hair, taxed 03 per cent, he
murmurs: "My darling, my darling, al
though you are taxed 43 per cent, will
you marry meT' A blush, taxed SO per
cent, suffuses her cheeks. "George,'1 she
says, "my heart, which is taxed 38 per
cent, is j ours." Then follows a delicious
silence, taxed 17 percent. The nightin
gale, taxed 71 per cent, sends up his
thrilling song; the southern breeze, taxed
88 per cent, wafts the perfume of delic
ious Mowers to them. But George, rising
from his knees, which were taxed 07 per
cent, and brushing the dust from his
trowsers, taxed 3!) per cent, exclaims:
Now I am happy my darling!" When
they were married they were taxed 200
per cent."

One of tho most pathetic fctories I have ever
heard was tohl to me by my friend, tho J udge,
in connection with tho beautifully carved
oak furniture of his library. Ixjiig years ago
there was a beautiful and wealthy and re
fined woman living in a stately homo on
street, in this city. Every room in her hand
some house was tK?autifuily furnished; hut
the library, with its carved oaken .wonders,
was her favorite of alL In that room she sat
as u young wife under tho shadow of the tall
bookcase and read, or dreamed tho long
winter eveniiigx away with her husband,
who was a brilliant young lawyer. Into that
room as a proud young mother she brought
her first baby and rocked him i:i tho stately,
curiously curved, high backed i ocking chair,
and when the little fellow was old enough to
play at riding she sat him on the hacks of
the carved oaken grifltns that held up the legs
of the big round table. A large family of
babies were rocked in that stately, high
backed rocking chair, rodo astrido or side
ways on the oaken griffins and grew up
among the carved wooden wonders of that
room to bo lovely women and honorcJjlo
Oh, thoso woro happy times for tho happy
wife and mother! Ixing, bright, happy, use
ful, prosperous years, aa full of joys and
comforts as the wooden life of tho room was
full of carved flowers, leaves and ferns. Ah,
if only the happy years would stay with us!
If wo could only keep our husbands, our
children and our homes! Would there Lo
any need of another heaven
Alas! for tho happy wife and motrrr.
She had spent tho liest and tho brightest
years of her lifo in that library, and old ago
carno and found her there, with bowed head
and broken heart, childless and ft widow,
poor and blind. Death had taken all he
could from her and debt claimed all that
was left. Ah, that last desolate night in tho
old library, with its carved oaken wonders!
The sorrowful good-by to all tho dear, old
familiar things. Tho agonizing prayer for
strength sobbed out, with her poor old gray
head buried in the cushions of tho stately
high backed rocking chair in which she had
rocked so many babies!
Ah, God! to le childless and a widow, poor
and old and blind!
Tho poor old mistros3 was led out of the
back door the next day, and the auctioneer
came in at the front. There was a big sale,
and friend the Judge bought tho library
furniture. A year afterward thcro was a
ring at his door bell, and a feeble old lady
led by a servant was ushered into tho hall.
To his gentle greeting she replied: "I am
Mrs. . I used to own the carved oaken
furniture you have in your library. My hus
band bought it for mo in Paris. I loved it
next to him and my children. I am stone
blind und 1 cannot see it, but will you please
lead me around the room and let me feel it."
And my friend, the jude, you may be sure,
led her tenderly aud gently, as ho might have
led his own mother, into the library, with its
carvel oaken wonders that had once been
her very own.
Ah, how plainly I can see that picture of
my gentle, courteous friend leading his old,
blind guest around the room, not to see, but
only to feel the wooden treasures of her past
life. He lead her first to the quaintly carved
bookcase, and sho put up her hands and felt
every leaf and bud and flower within her
reach, patiently and tenderly cud with a
smilo of happy recollection upon her face.
Then she asked to be led to the round table,
and stooping down she tenderly patted each
of the oaken griffins on which her little girls
and boys had rodo, and sobbed out: "Be
good to them, J udge, bo good to them for
my children's sake." And then sho put out
her trembling, empty old hands in search of
the stately high backed rocking chair in
which she had rocked so many babies,
so many littlo warm, rosy babies.. Find
ing it, sho seated herself one more within
the embrace of its familiar arms, aud lifting
her sightless eyes, streaming with tears, tc
heaven, she cried out: "Oh, my lost darl
ings, come back to your mother, your poor,
blind, helpless old mother." But I cannot
toll you any more; I cannot bear it.
Ah, God! to be childless and a widow, old
and poor and blind!
But, thank God, she was not so many days
longer. She had come to say good-by to tLo
last tie she had on earth, her furnituro
friends, the beautiful, carved oaken wonders
of her happy past life, aud having felt them,
she folded her empty hands and closed her
sightless eyes, to open them in that beautiful
world where her husband and children waited
for her, and whose wonders are not carved in
wood. Pearl Rivers in Now Orleans Pica
yune. Learn Not To Preach.
There is a lesson lying in wait for the good
woman in the conduct of tho bad woman.
Good women preach too much. Bad women
do not. And it is sad to note how often tho
bad woman gets devotion and 3i that
the good woman is dying for.
As a natural result of this observation ii
may bo said in conclusion: Women must
learn not to preach. They must learn that
while men have hearts as soft as their own,
they carry them between shells as an oyster
docs his whole incorporation, and that shell
closes as surely upon a sermon as tha other
kind does on a stick. We all know how
women are bound to marry men that they d
not really approve of. Some women do thia
out of an evangelical, missionary spirit;
others do so for lack of anything more an
gelic Tho ones who marry the last man, th?
only man, are apt to get along better iu rt
f ormatory work than tha missionaries, "Why f
Because they preach less.
A worthy example of this reformatory
principle of non-preachment now adorna
New York society. A very pretty, clever
woman was asked by a man about town tj
marry him. 5he was a girl who had never had
but & scant snpply of those aids to matrix
mony which surround a rich girl, and sb.iv
had never had an offer that was so eligible
from a worldly point of view. She summed
the situation up and accepted him. When
asked her reasons by a man who wa3 a closer
confidant than any woman could have been
to her curious nature, she put her summing
up in words: "That man has run his race. I
believe he is a clear minded man, and that L"d
has seen enough of bad women and gaylifa
to appreciate a decent wife and a tempting
home. Ha drinks more or less, I know; br.t
It is custom more than habit. I know he Is

For years the world has been on a moral
crusade against tho employment of children
in mines aud factories, whilo tho far greater
evils that result from tho mothers going o;:t
is wage earners havo attracted compara
tively littlo attention. Labor, within cor
tain limits, is good for the child, giving i; a
wholesome moral discipline and training for
tho business by which it is to cam its liveli
hood; but when a married woman Iris to
neglect her natural duties for tho n -.pon.d-bilities
that properly belong to the ot r m.,
it is timo for huinauliy lo protest in tho name
of her offspring.
No one individual can fulfill satisfactorily
the double, or, I should saj-, tho triple fune.
tion of bearing and rearing children and
providing for their maintenance. I am st la
boring woman myself, and have mot with
some success as a bread winner, and I l:iku
that the conditions of performing this fun.-?-tion
satisfactorily arc quite incompatible
with thoso arduous and important duties
which make such heavy demands upon every
conscientious mother, especially an.c;-. - t! 3
poor. In the homes of the very po--r th-ro
are no hired servants to keep tho houscho! :
machinery running smoothly whilo tho i::is
tress is awr. The wife of the lal wring rnr.n
is frequently cook, nurse, housemaid, la-.m-dress,
all in one, aud if sho must go o. tasa
bread winner beside", what is to jircve;:'; tho
domestic engine from running ofT the trck
and getting it self hopelessly ditched?
Of tho two evils, if both are evils, I r.m
persuaded that it is better that tho child
should go out to labor than tho mo: her.
Liberty, uncurbed by the cheek rein of pa
rental restraint, ia a more than doitbtful
blessing, for the loss of which the child thr.t
takes its mother's place in tho shop or mill i:;
more than compensated by the adva::tao of
having her care et home. Eiia F. Andrews

C.'rls r-vldoiu fall into habits of profanity;
but from lack of proper restraint at home,
too often indulge in speech and actions which
are fr.r from hulyliko or reliued, and not
many years ago would not have been toler
ated in good society. Hut of late, at home,
making or rceciv ing calls, on tin-streets or in
the cars, tliis loud, boisterous, free and easy
behavior is painfully noticeable. If reeu iu
little girls, w ho ! hou'.d be a i s weet and gent lo
as the birds or flowers, 01:0 cannot avoid
thinking that their mothers have not
guarded their jewels as they nro iu duty
bound to do when such priceless treasures uro
committed to their charge. If our little girls
greet their brothers and sisters, ami jx rhaps
even their parents, boisterously; if, instead
of 'Coo l morning," they cry "Halloo, papal"
or "Halloo, mamma!" and call to playmates
in the street iu tho same rough manner, who
will be surprised if this stylo follows them iw
