Crass-Widowers vs Sought Love
In one of the articles puMishcd in
Thk IIkuai.d a few evenings previous,
one of ye editors exhausted his vocahu
lory in u di.seussion. of the many lmjis
and mishaps, fortunes and misfortune,
that la-fall that part of humanity, which
the cruel messenger of fate, (which more
or less determines the destiny of the
human nice) lias troin time iinni(tnmor
iul decreed that they should he called
grass widowers, and now while that
class of men, as well as all others, deserve
the attention of the pulpit, . press and
pulilic sentiment, yet there is another'
class which we believe to he worthy of
like attention. There are some redeem
ing qualities iu the former, from the fact,
that when fate lias released them from
her grasp and they return to the joy and
bliss of domestic life or to "the bald
headed end of the broom," they are then
left to themselves to enjoy home or share
its sorrows as the case may be; but the
class of whic h we speak differ in many
respects to the latter, from the fact, that
in the first place there is no hopes of the
public being relieved of them as one of
them have truthfully said "six months of
leap year is gone without any fatal rc
sul s." They are to be found every
where, the private boarding house is in
complete with its list of boarders unless
one or more of them has got his name
there. "While there, he amuses himself by
teasing some of the waiters or some of
the boarders and if tired of that kind of
sport, he will get a pail of water and
amuse one of the neighbors by throwing
vater on them. lie then returns to his
sanctum and amuses himself by writing
up locals, taking for his subjects some of
his fellow boarders; but we see we are
getting almost personal, lest some one be
identified by their vocation. The class of
which we speak are very fond of attend
ing lawn socials parties etc. It was our sad
rate to meet one of them some time ago
(far from here) at a party, the party was
a surprise, and a present was to be given.
From the portly appearance of our friend
we iufered that he would be able to very
gracefully deliver the present, according
ly he was selected for that purpose. The
time came for the present to be given and
to the astonishment of those in the secret
the present was not given and soon all
started for home. After we got outside
an interview was held, but the present
could not be found. They went back in
the house and commenced looking for it
in a very exciting manner, when amid
many blushes and smiles (and that class
of humanity can blush) our friend went
down in his inside vest pocket and
brought forth the treasure and very grace
fully presented it. It seems as if there
had been some misunderstanding in re
gard to who was to make the presenta
tion and our friend forgofthathe had it.
But the last and worst of all of their pe
culiarities, is their claims of being such
slaves to duty. Their attention to the
gras widowers in the absence of their
wives, they proudly claim to le ;:rcm-
by the purest of motives, that of duty;
but is it not plain to be seen that they are
trying to live the model husband while
in single life, but they ask what motives
for s-o living. Oh no, they do not know
that the young swains are not entirely in
a?nsiMc to their actions. But now in con
clusion we would adyise that our friends
de'voto their attention in all future time
to those who are still in the market and
not waste their time on those who are lost
to them forever, that the old sun"

Drowned While Seining.
David City, Neb., July 19. Two men
were drowned in the Platte river, north
of Fred Vincent's farm, this afternoon.
A party of alout ten men from Bellwood
were fishing with a seine on the south
bank, where the channel of the South
Fork river comes in, and as Charles Bu
chanan was out with one end of the seine
rope wound around his wrist, going
down stream, he was run over by W. S.
Brewer, who was swept down by the
current. Brewer, in struggling to get

(2) If so, where is your wife?

Somewhat of a sensation has been
created in the Second ward over the dis
appearance of some meat from the top of
a pump belonging to one of our best cit
izens. There is not se much sensation in
regard to the value of the meat, as there
is speculation in regard to who the lucky
mau is that got it. Some are contented
to lay their charge io some of the common
class, but some, however, liave gone so
far as to allude to s jme of our city offi
cials, who sits at the top of the ladder in
that capacity, while others say, with a
wag of their head, that the perpetrator i?
one of our county commissioners, who
with just pride may allude to himself as
the head man. The JIpRALii frapkly
confesses its ignorance as to the perpe
trator, but sympathizes with the loser.
These beautiful evenings are the
mediums of bringing many happy hours
to the children of our city. Among the
many happy events of the season, one of
the happiest was a lawn social given to
Miss Delia E. Wise, given in the honor
of her seventh birthday; about twenty of
her little friends were ptesenj; and the
evening was spent in the enjoyment Of
swing, hamvnoofca f,iid uhh

was given them by Mrs. Wise. Miss
Delia received several beautiful presents
as tokens of respect from her friends.
These parties ore the source of great
pleasure to children and leave lasting
impressions upon their minds and we be
lieve the parents of our city could teach
great lessons by encouraging suck amuse
ments. From Friday's Daily.
We have our opinion of a reporter
who will spend half a day collecting ma
terial for locals, and then hunt up his
best girl to assist him in writing them up.
We never saw this done but we have
heard of such things happening.
Hoge and Murphy, the "Q" conspira
tors, arrived in the city this morning with
a large following of the Brotherhood.
We did not learn their mission here, but
suppose they have come to work up sym

their broken ranks here.
We have seen things that were very
amusing, and at the same time very prac

Monday night for the purpose of making
more complete arrangenients-And arrange
for the purchase of instruments Several
of the boys have a fair knowledge; of
music, and as they are all ambitious to
come to the front iu that line, we rest
with great assurance on their success.
About the same crowd also formed them
selves into a glee club, and are apparent
ly anxious to attain a knowledge of that
profession. We trust the boys may be
successful nnd also lie a credit to the
town in the way of a band.
About forty young people express
themselves as having spent a fi.-w hours
last evening in a most enjoyable manner
at the residence of Mr. M. Oiling, the
event being a p.irty given in honor of

FAIR AND EA'POMTION.
The board of managers for the coming
Nebraska slate fair and exposition, to be
held at Lincoln, September 7th to 11th
next, held its monthly round up meeting
at the Windsor hotel July 10.
Secretary Furnna reported that responses
and applications for accomodations were
far in advance of any preceding year up
to date; that more live stalk stalls, pens,
and space for agricultural products had
been engaged; more inquiries made and
correspondence generally more than
The season has been propitious for
good crops, all over the west. The im

never was so large. The feature of coun

any rnd &11 minor premiums, Uiq cacour-
ageinent given, new '

those west of the 100th mer

and lively interest. A result is producers
and breeders are vieing with each other
in the true spirit of expositions, who shall
excel. The fact that Nebraska state fairs
now rank all others has become notorious,
and all classes of exhibitors are coming
hers to show what they have. Already
large numbers of entries arc made, not
only from our own state, but from Iowa,
Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio, In
diana, New York. Missouri and Kansas.
They seem to understand where it pays
best to exhibit.
The board is already convinced that all
accomodations will have to be near or
quite doubled in capacity, to meet de
mands now in sight, in all this, it is the
determination as heretofore, that those
who attend the Nebraska state fair, eith

for in a manner as to return them to their
homes feeling their expectations and in

If we are to be blessed with the fine
weather which has characterized Nebras

past, the next exposition will simply be
colossal beyond present comprehension.
All has been done and will continue to
be done by the management to make the

HOW A CHINAMAN DIE&
A CELESTIAL MERCHANT'S DEATH
IN HIS NEW YORK HOME.
The rious Task of Cheering the ! Iiir
Man and Ministering to 11U I'livnleal ami
Spiritual YVunU Attractive Interior of a
A heathen died 12,000 miles away from
Lome, ut No. 115 Tell street, on Friday morn
iny. Although ho was so far away from las
native land, ht was tended in his dyiu.qj
hours ly some of hi "cousins," for in China
the cousin is any member of tlio same family,
no matter how reinoto tlio kinship, ami tlio
maimer of his douth was as it would have
been if ho hud died at homo. His immo is
IIou Toi, and ho is a cousin of a wealthy
Chinaman who keeps a proeery at No. "il
Mott street. Ho had just been taken away
from Ltoston to dio in this city. According
to u certain Chinese superstition it is unlucky
to allow a man to dio in the same house where
ho lived. Consequently, as soon as tlio at
tending physician pronounces the easo hope
less, a room elsewhere is hired for him to die
in, as was dono in this case.
IIous Toi was born in Quang-Tung-Foo in
1SC3 and came to America when ho was 20
years of ae. Like so many of his country
men, when ho arrived here he sought employ
ment in a laundry, and set himself to niako
a fortune. His savings after a time wero
largo enough to enable him to buy an interest
in a procery, and beforo ho died ho ha 1 laid
up $"0,000. His hopes aud plans, however,
all perished with him. Four months ago ho
contructed an illness common among the peo
ple of his race. llf couched, f-f'.v Vr.'.w
last his appetito. Ttiu American physician
whom ho employed at first pronounced the
troublo malaria, but his treatment did tho
patient little good. A Chinese doctor was
consulted later, and ho declared the trouble
to bo pneumonia. This proved correct, and
the disease soon proved fatal.
Within the last two weeks of his life ho
was never left alone. His friends and cousins
relieved ono iuother in tho pious task of
checrhig tho dying man and ministering, in
their heathen fashion, to his spiritual as well
as his pb3-sieal wants. They read long ia.s
sages to him from their national books, such
as tho works of Confucius and Mencius, tho
Tripiteka of Buddha and the verses of Lao
Tszeo and other famous Kets. They fed him
with tho strange and delicate dainties which
tho Chinese only can concoct, and talked of
homo when ho was strong enough to listen.
Then, as tho end came nearer, they brought
out and spread around him numerous queer
looking objects, such as had been familiar to
him in his childhood, evidently seekiue, as
they might amuse a tired child, to bring
some pleasant memory or happy thought into
his mind while yet life might be made alittle
Thoy spread out little squares of sugar
candy, looking not unlike tho "butter scotch"
American children like so. welL Queer cakes
wero laid around on tables and chairs, and
even on tho bed, somo with fruits and some
with spioe3 in them, some with meats and
some with unfamiliar ingredients to the Cau
casian ; very few of them were alike. Then
they brought even dolls, fashioned as nearly
after the babyhood of China as the pictures
of their native artists are like mature
grotesque, quaint and rlcldy garbed, odd and
pretty. Yuii tne coiling they hung kites
and queer umbrellas, aud some of the ele
gant, fantastic paper lanterns that aesthetes
delight in. A smile would sometimes pome
over his wasted features, but W tho most of
tho time his foco ".vas calm and, grave, as is
tho woai of Chinamen. It is a look not un
like that of babies, wise beyond their days,
who look at all things with a quiet attention
that seems to, epeak a tolerant half approval.
Ilis bed was "a narrow bunk, covered with
white matting, and the pillows wero long,
narrow boxes, covered with upholstery.
They looked not unlike tho foot rests in, an
old English church. Around the walls hung
silken banners of vivid scarlet and rich em
broidery tracing the hieroglyphics that
stood for verses from tho poets. Over tho
mantelpiece wero religious pictures not un
like those that hang over tho altars in the
Chinese temples. In tho center was a repre
sentation of God as the Chinese picture hira,
seated on a throne of barbaric magnificence,
whila on eithw hand were pictures of the
beings whom they suppose to personify the
powers of destruction and reparation. On
tho opposite wall hung the words of the
Christian hymn, "Nearer, my God, to Tbf."
On tho mantelpiece underreoth the religious
pictures w ere a dosn or more artistic photo
grf.j.hs of ballet girls in tho extreme nude
ness of tho modern stage.
In one corner was a bamboo table, on
which were pots of coal kept constantly
burning, and of tea kept always hot! Other
smaller tables supported bronze vases, sor-
or tnom very costly undl ail art'- J
bows of chj:ui wbi ' bronze

, sticks, to be burned from time to
thno in devotional exercises, and some forty
or fifty volumes of tho writings of Chinese
poets. Theso were huge and cumbrous, but
of rare workmanship, and must have been
The sick man's costume was a simple house
dress, somewhat resembling the pajamas that
have grown into popular favor iu America
within the last few years. He wore a blouse,
loose and without any approach to a fit,
mado of yellow muslin, and a pair of trou
sers of the same material, only reaching to
the ankle, and on his otherwise naked feet
were a pair of loose slippers. This was in his
Boston home. A few days ago, his physi
cians having pronounced his case hopeless, he
was removed to this city, as stated above.
He confronted death with all the calm
courage of the true fatalist, evidently in full
possession of all his mental faculties and firm
in his Oriental faith. There was not the
faintest evidence of any fear in his manner
or his words, nor did there seem to be any
longing for life or desire to supplicate for it.
To an American whom he knew well, and
whom he had learned to regard as a good
friend, he said, as he grasped his hand the
day beforo ho died:
"Mayhap die one week, maybe one month ;
dio allee samee. No solly myself. All light.
Solly my mothee, my niothee."
To one of his Chinese friends he said, only
a few hours before ho breathed his last, and
when ho was almost unable to articulate J "I
think I see tho dragons." It was the last he
said. Soon after he sank into what seemed
a peaceful sleep and saving for his labored
breathing he gave no further evidence of suf
fering. Slowly and more slowly he breathed,
until with a long gasping sigh he gave up
the struggle and rested.
There .was no lamentation, nor any evi
dence of grief, though it was plain enough
that to many of his friends bis going was a
real sorrow. Five or six of these friends
were in the room when he passed away, and
as soon as they saw that he was dead they
began the preparations for bis final disposid.

have a fine scientific knowledge, and
they talk thoughtfully on all topics of

A farmer living near Greensboro, Ga.,
was much troubled by rats, and their
depredations on bis corn crib increased to
an alarming extent. He finally thought
of a method by which he could xid him
self of them. He secured a three gallon
jar and half fdled it .-ith water. On the
top of the water he placed a thick layer
of cotton seed. The seed, so he argued,
would attract the rats as a pleasant place
to play, and of course the momelit they
touched tho seed down they would go.
The trap worked like a charm. The rats
came; they attempted the frolic act on
the seed with the deceptive foundation,
and, to use Mr. Klilgore's own words, he
"caught a gallon and a half of rats the
first night," running the water to the
top. Chicago Herald.
